This is about Demigods, Gods, Mortals, Titans, and Chaos reading about Percy's first quest.
Rated: M for cussing and one torture scene coming up.
On Earth-Prime, Percy had left Camp Half-Blood and only those who care about him know why he did. While they plan to have him back, Chaos sends them to Earth-1 and invites everyone (including Percy and his counterpart) to read about Percy's past.
On Earth-Prime at an unknown cabin, 24-year-old Percy Jackson has gotten back from having sex with Hebe and Nemesis. He smirked at Hercules' reaction to finding out about it However, he was happy to see his daughter Chloe being excited to see him and they play around. They start playing with animals and swimming in the pool. When they are done with dinner, they encounter Chaos and he invites them to a special event. Percy and Chloe agreed and they are teleported away.
Camp Half-Blood, Annabeth was crying at Poseidon's cabin because her now ex-boyfriend Percy has left camp and claims that she left him for the hunt. She thinks he's confused by her decision to join the hunt but promises to have him back. She also wants to apologize for kissing another guy, who turned out to be a cheating jerk. Also, Thalia was crying too because she also betrayed Percy and framed him for a lot of bad things. Her and Annabeth forgave each other but their respective boyfriends hate them now. Nico found out what happened and dumped Thalia. Jason also found out what happened and disowned his sister for what she did while also disowning Zeus for encouraging this. However, Chaos visits them and gives them an invite as the only way to see Percy again. They accepted without hesitation.
On Mount Olympus, Zeus was happy that Percy is gone, Hera became worried about Percy, Poseidon was in grieve of missing his son, Demeter hasn't grown any plants in awhile because of what happened, Ares secretly missed having spars with the brat, Athena felt guilt at how she treated Percy, Helios was angry at Artemis for causing Percy's disappearance, Artemis looked smug and peaceful that her least favorite hero is gone but sad that Apollo won't talk to her, Hephaestus just looked at the shield that Percy left behind in sadness, Aphrodite was crying about her lost lover and is comforted by her husband, Hermes is pranking those who hurt Percy, Dionysus was drowning his sorrows, Hades felt bitter about what's happening, and Hestia was looking at her fire in sadness about losing her champion. Perseus I was in sorrow about his namesake, Theseus, Tyson, and Triton made a toast to their brother, Hercules and Orion didn't say anything, and the daughters of Poseidon missed their sweet little brother. However, Chaos appears and gives them the same invite. Those who like Percy won the votes and they are teleported away.
On Earth-1's version of Olympus in 1980, Zeus (Earth-1) and Hera (Earth-1) were having a great time together, Poseidon (Earth-1) was busy looking at the sea as usual, Demeter (Earth-1) was watering her plants with her daughter Katie (Earth-1), Ares (Earth-1) was cleaning his cannon-like mace as his daughter Clarisse (Earth-1) looked on in boredom and wanted to play with her favorite cousin, Athena (Earth-1) was studying homework with her daughter Annabeth (Earth-1), Apollo (Earth-1) and Artemis (Earth-1) were spending time with her younger crush Percy (Earth-1) and their younger half-sister Thalia (Earth-1) who blushes at the sun god, Hephaestus (Earth-1) and Charlie (Earth-1) are hanging out with Aphrodite (Earth-1) and Selena (Earth-1) respectively, Hermes (Earth-1) was planning pranks with his sons the Stolls (Earth-1), Dionysus (Earth-1) was drinking which irritated Grover (Earth-1), Hades (Earth-1) was watching a horror movie with Nico (Earth-1), Bianca (Earth-1), and Hazel (Earth-1), and Hestia (Earth-1) was poking at the fire. Suddenly all the guests arrived and Chaos explained everything. Then a light had flashed and revealed two people: Percy (Earth-Prime) still has sea green eyes and black hair but was seen as more handsome and wearing a work suit while Chloe (Earth-Prime) was a beautiful little girl with brown hair and brown eyes while she also wore an Olympian dress. Those who love Percy (Earth-Prime) were happy.
"PERCY!" yelled the happy nice people. Aphrodite (Earth-Prime) spun him around, Hebe (Earth-Prime) and Nemesis (Earth-Prime) gave him kisses, Jason (Earth-Prime) and Nico (Earth-Prime) both hugged their friend/little brother, Leo (Earth-Prime) hand shaked with him, Drew (Earth-1) kissed his cheeks, and Chris (Earth-Prime), Clarisse (Earth-Prime), and Luke snuggled into him. Stadium seats were made for them and they sat down. Annabeth (Earth-Prime) and Thalia (Earth-Prime) are both excited to be reunited with him but he ignores him, much to their sadness. Artemis (Earth-Prime) is happy to see Apollo (Earth-Prime) but he ignores her, making her crestfallen.
Chapter 1: I Accidentally Vaporize My Pre-Algebra Teacher
When they read the chapter title, they all looked at Percy (Earth-Prime) with weird looks.
"How do you accidentally vaporize your teacher?" asked a confused Luke but Percy (Earth-Prime) just told Chaos to read, which the sympathetic being was happy to oblige.
(Look, I didn't want to be a half blood)
"Who wouldn't." replied the demigods from both worlds. Gods from both worlds wonder why. Chaos knows why but didn't answer and just continued reading.
(If you're reading this because you think you might be one, my advice is: Close this book right now. Believe whatever lie your mom or dad told you about at birth and try to lead a normal life.)
"That was good advice, Prissy." said a smirking Clarisse (Earth-Prime) while the nice people (both worlds) agreed with her.
"Thanks Clarisse." said a smiling Percy (Earth-Prime), earning a smile back. The Demigods (Earth-Prime) were shocked that he doesn't look offended.
"What a wimp." said a very cruel Artemis (Earth-Prime) as the hunt (Earth-Prime) laughs.
"Yeah, I knew it. After all, he did ran away." said a smirking Phoebe (Earth-Prime) while Zander (Earth-Prime) laugh. Everyone else glared at them for their cruelty but also show sympathy for Percy (Earth-Prime), who is sheading tears from Artemis (Earth-Prime)'s comment. Jason (Earth-Prime) came over and comforted him while glaring at Zander (Earth-Prime) for laughing. Meanwhile, Artemis (Earth-1) and Thalia (Earth-1) were also comforting Percy (Earth-1) over that insult. They can't help but feel an attached to him.
"Hey, don't be mean to daddy." said an angry Chloe (Earth-Prime). Percy (Earth-Prime) smiles at his daughter and hugs her.
"Thanks sweetie." said a happy Percy (Earth-Prime). Then Apollo (Earth-Prime) glares at Artemis (Earth-Prime), who notices the look.
"What?" asked a curious Artemis (Earth-Prime).
"That was not necessary. Please stop or I'm shutting you up." said an annoyed Apollo (Earth-Prime). He had a falling out with her and now he's given up on her. Artemis (Earth-Prime) could tell what he was angry about but thinks she's not at fault here.
(Being a half-blood is dangerous. It's scary. Most of the time, it gets you killed in painful nasty ways.)
The Gods (both worlds) now understand why they don't want to be half-bloods.
Thalia (Earth-Prime) was shocked that he knows what it's like. For some reason, she feels guilty for thinking he didn't understand her life but shakes it off, thinking he still doesn't know what it's like to suffer.
(If you're a normal kid, reading this because you think it's fiction, great. Read on. I envy you for being able to believe that none of this ever happened. But if you recognize yourself in these pages, if you feel something stirring inside- stop reading immediately. You might be one of us. And once you know that, it's only a matter of time before they sense it too and they'll come for you.)
"Awesome, our sea princess gives good advice." says a smirking Chris (Earth-Prime) and Clarisse (Earth-Prime) as they get close to Percy (Earth-Prime), who snuggles into them. Only a few people saw this and here are the reactions: Chloe and Luke smiled at them, Chaos chuckles at this, The Demigods (Earth-Prime) were stunned, Clarisse (Earth-1) smiled at being close to her now favorite cousin, Chris (Earth-1) fake gagged at this, Annabeth (Earth-Prime) glared in jealousy, Grover (Earth-Prime) chose not to say anything, Ares (both worlds) frown at this, Poseidon (Earth-Prime) smiles at this, and Thalia (Earth-Prime) was furious and a little jealous that he's paying them more attention than her. Yep, the reason she's mean to Percy is because he doesn't give her any attention.
(Don't say I didn't warn you.)
"You didn't warn me." shouted Nico (both worlds), who both got smacked by Bianca (Earth-1) and Hazel (Earth-Prime).
"Well excuse me, I was too busy saving your ass from a monster, being avoided or blamed by you, and tricked by you." said an annoyed Percy (Earth-Prime). Nico (Earth-Prime) looks guilty while Hazel (Earth-Prime) glares at her brother for that reminder.
(My name is Percy Jackson.)
"No, I'm Percy. You're Chaos." said a joking Percy (both worlds). Artemis (Earth-1), Luke, Chris (Earth-Prime), and Clarisse (Earth-Prime) roll their eyes fondly at their tactics. Chaos chuckles at this.
"Oh yes, we know Percy. He's famous in the nine realms and I took a sacred oath not to tell the Avengers." said a smiling Thor (Earth-Prime).
"Yeah, I've met him. He once helped me defeat an evil villain." said an agreeing Carter (Earth-Prime). The Greek Demigod and Egyptian Magician do arm wrestling handshake while Sadie (Earth-Prime) hugs him.
(I'm twelve years old. Until a few months ago, I was a boarding student at Yancy Academy, a private school for troubled teens in upstate New York.)
"I hate those kinds of schools." said an irritated Percy (Earth-Prime) while his counterpart and others agreed.
"I'm glad you don't take me there." said an agreeing Chloe.
(Am I a troubled kid?)
"YES!" said everyone who knew Percy (both worlds), causing the older one to glare and the younger one to pout. Artemis (Earth-1) couldn't help but find it cute and smile, which Apollo (Earth-1) grinned at this and thinking this could be a way to get his sister back. Chaos smiles and mentally informs him that it could be, giving the archer hope.
However, they glare at the Zeus kids (Earth-Prime) for saying it cruelly.
(Yeah. You could say that.)
"See that, Seaweed Brain? Even you agree with us." said a teasing Artemis (Earth-1), causing Percy (Earth-1) to smile and snuggle into her as she smiles. Apollo (Earth-1) is liking this and is glad this kid is not like Orion (Earth-1). Maybe he is seeing the same girl he used to hang out with. Annabeth (Earth-1) couldn't help but be jealous at this.
"Wow, I guess you confess something about you." said a smirking Thalia (Earth-Prime). She received glares for that but Percy (Earth-Prime) just smiles.
"I know, I really am troubled but I'm everyone's troubled boy." said a smiling Percy (Earth-Prime). Thalia (Earth-Prime) was stunned but the nice people laugh at her.
"Nice one daddy." said a smiling Chloe as they high-five. Thalia (Earth-Prime) frowns.
'I'll get you for this, you little bastard.' thought a frowning Thalia (Earth-Prime) but another part of her decided it's best to keep her mouth shut. However, she doesn't seem angered and found it funny.
(I can start at any point in my short miserable life to prove it but things really started to go bad last May, when are sixth grade class took a field trip to Manhattan. Twenty-eight mental case kids and two teachers on a yellow school bus, heading to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to look at ancient Greek and Roman stuff.)
"That sounds like fun." said a happy Athena (both worlds). Her children agreed with her.
"Are you kidding? That sounds like torture." said a groaning Poseidon (Earth-Prime). Theseus (both worlds) and the other sea spawns agreed.
(I know. It sounds like torture.)
Athena (both worlds) and Annabeth (both worlds) glare at Percy (both worlds). The older one out of annoyance of her boyfriend's response and the younger one out of offense at this boy, who she's starting to want to tutor out of believe that he doesn't like studying. Meanwhile, Poseidon (Earth-Prime) and his children smile at each other.
"Don't blame him, he has that disorder that causes him to not read English and only read Greek." said an understanding Chloe. Her fellow friends agreed, making the said hero smile at them.
"Thanks honey." said a smiling Percy (Earth-Prime).
"No problem, daddy." said a smiling Chloe.
Annabeth (Earth-1) now understands and feels guilty but her pride still thinks he needs studying.
"But now I study Greek culture. I do this because I love the Greek gods. For example: Hera adopted me, I do swimming with Poseidon and his family, plant with Demeter and Katie, train with Clarisse and her siblings, listening to music with Apollo and Will, shooting arrows with my daughter Chloe and her friends, building materials with Hephaestus and Leo, have sex with Aphrodite and her daughters, steal from bad people and play pranks with Hermes and his kids, drink wine with Dionysus, and I poke fires with Hestia." said a happy Percy (Earth-Prime). The mentioned gods and their children smile at him. Poseidon (Earth-Prime) and his family smile at their son/step-son/brother. Piper (Earth-Prime), Drew (Earth-Prime), their siblings, and mother smile at the mention of what they do with Percy (Earth-Prime) and really think he's great in bed while Hephaestus (Earth-Prime) smiled at him for at least making his wife and his step-daughters happy. Jason (Earth-Prime) wasn't mad because he broke up with Piper (Earth-Prime) due to the war going on. Annabeth (Earth-Prime) glared at hearing about how her seaweed brain was having sex with those hookers. When there were confused looks, he continued explaining, "I'm not on good terms with Zeus, Ares, Athena, and Artemis. Me and Zeus hate each other because he killed my mom while his children abuse me and frame me for stuff they do, me and Ares are enemies, Athena and her children treat me like an idiot while her daughter is flirting with other guys behind my back and abandon our daughter, and Artemis hates and abuses me for creating a new hunter group, despite a few females joining it. She also abused and tortured my nephew Ezekiel during his childhood."
Everyone glares at Zeus (Earth-Prime), who is looking nervous from the glares. Apollo (Earth-Prime) glares at his twin sister, who looks nervous from the glare. The demigods (Earth-Prime) glare at the Zeus cabin for what they did. Annabeth (Earth-Prime) looks guilty at the part about boys and wants to make it up to him but was shocked.
"Chloe is our daughter?" said a shocked Annabeth (Earth-Prime) but Chloe glares at her.
"Your no mother of mine. You gave that up when you abandoned me and daddy for your selfish dreams and stuff. He has taken care of me, fed me, clothed me, and protected me. Despite his anger, he's a good parent and I want to make him proud." said an angry Chloe. Percy (Earth-Prime) smiles and hugs her while Annabeth (Earth-Prime) is shocked that her boyfriend and daughter hate her. Then Percy (Earth-Prime) glares at his ex.
"I loved you Annabeth but you turned your back on me like everyone else did. I actually am trying to be with you and thought about you and the others. It's you guys who were distant from me. You didn't care that my mother died." said an angry Percy (Earth-Prime). He then tells them everything that had happened and the reason why he didn't tell them. They feel guilty now but Annabeth (Earth-Prime) feels like arguing that it wasn't her fault. Then he smiles at his daughter, "You always make me proud, my little Chloe."
She smiles and hugs her daddy, who hugs back. The Hunt (Earth-Prime) couldn't help but smile at this, they are glad that he actually takes care of Chloe. They might hate him but he loves his daughter and doesn't want her getting hurt. Hestia (both worlds) smile at such family loyalty.
(Most Yancy fields were. But Mr. Brunner, our Latin teacher, was leading this trip, so I had hopes.)
"Nice to know you have that much confidence in me, Percy." said a chuckling Chiron (both worlds). Percy (both worlds) grin.
(Mr. Brunner was this middle-aged guy in a motorized wheelchair. He had thinning hair and a scruffy beard and a frayed tweed jacket which always smelled like coffee. You wouldn't think he be cool but he told stories and jokes and let us play games in his class.)
"I love that class." said a happy Percy (both worlds) while others agreed with him. Chiron (both worlds) smiled at this.
"Sounds like Chiron." said a curious Apollo (Earth-1) and he looks at Dionysus (Earth-1), who nods.
"Yep, that's him. He's disguised so he can locate demigods." said a serious Dionysus (Earth-1). Yancy Academy staff are shocked that one of the teachers is part of Greek mythology. Annabeth (Earth-1) smiles at Percy (Earth-1) and some part of her is forming a crush on him but she pushes it away and claims she likes Lukas.
(He also has this awesome collection of Roman armor and weapons. So he was the only teacher whose class didn't put me to sleep.)
"YOU SLEEP IN CLASS?!" said an outraged Athena (both worlds) while Annabeth (Earth-Prime) sighed in annoyance.
"Yeah. So what?" said a calm and fearless Percy (Earth-Prime), shocking everyone that he talked back at her.
'How dare he?! Who does this miserable little shit think he is?!' A shocked and angered Athena (Earth-1) thought while Annabeth (Earth-1) glared at him.
"Not my fault anyways. The teachers usually don't help me out and don't care that I have Dyslexia and ADHD so I can't read English. I actually tried to get work done but they call me lazy or a troublemaker. For a child of Athena, it can be easy but other demigods it is not." said a defensive Percy (Earth-Prime). The wisdom goddess thought about it and decided something.
"It's not much but I'll look into it. Thanks for bringing this to my attention." said an understanding Athena (Earth-Prime).
"Whatever." said a shrugging Percy (Earth-Prime) but then he glares again at Athena (Earth-1), "Anyway, keep your dumbass opinions to yourself and shove them straight up your ass."
Athena (Earth-1) goes red with anger and vows to deal with him later but it didn't help when the others were laughing at her. Even Zeus (Earth-1) is laughing.
(I hoped the trip would be okay. At least, I hoped that for once I wouldn't get in trouble.)
"That's not gonna happen Percy." said a deadpanned Leo (Earth-Prime) who knew his friend very well.
(Boy, was I wrong.)
"Told you." said a smiling Leo (Earth-Prime), only to get smacked upside the head by Piper (Earth-Prime).
"No one disagreed with you." said an irritated Piper (Earth-Prime).
"Whatever, Beauty Queen." muttered Leo (Earth-Prime), causing Piper (Earth-Prime) to glare at him.
"Care to repeat that, Repair Boy?" said a now blushing and angry Piper (Earth-Prime).
Leo (Earth-Prime) pulled out a megaphone from nowhere and repeated what he said. Piper (Earth-Prime) just blushed and sit down, looking away from him but suddenly liked what he called her. Well, she's been having a crush on him and wants to date Leo (Earth-Prime). Aphrodite (Earth-Prime) notices her daughter's expression and hopes to pair the two friends up.
(See, things happen to me on field trips. Like at my fifth-grade school, when we went to the Saratoga battlefield, I had this incident with the Revolutionary War cannon. I wasn't aiming for the school bus but of course I got expelled anyway.)
Everyone couldn't help but laugh at this, mostly the Hermes and Mercury cabins. Even the teachers (Earth-1) found it funny. Surprisingly, Artemis (Earth-1) was also laughing.
"What were you two aiming for?" asked a curious Luke.
"Oh just a hill. Which in hindsight was next to the bus." answered a smiling Percy (Earth-Prime).
"I was aiming for a bunch of bullies. They were taking pictures under the girls' skirts and I decided to scare them off but didn't know there was live ammunition and it destroyed a bus." said a blushing Percy (Earth-1), causing the girls (both worlds) to smile at him. Artemis (Earth-1) hugged him, making Apollo (Earth-1) smile. He's liking this kid more and more.
(And before that, at my fourth-grade school, when we took a behind the scenes tour of the Marine World shark pool, I sort of hit the wrong lever on the catwalk and our class took an unplanned swim.)
Everyone were on the ground laughing while Percy (both worlds) blushed.
"Okay, that one was an accident. I was trying to find the light switch." said Percy (Earth-Prime) while his counterpart agreed.
(And the time before that...Well, you get the idea.)
"No we want to hear more!" groaned all of the pranksters (both worlds). Artemis (Earth-Prime) was just annoyed by her brother showing attention towards a male.
"Prissy, you're telling us all about the rest, no escape. Got it?" said a very serious Clarisse (Earth-Prime). Percy (Earth-Prime) nodded, not wanting to argue with her. The guys (both worlds) chuckled and claim he was whipped, only to get smacked upside the heads by the girls (both worlds). However, Apollo (Earth-Prime) flinched when his sister hit him, receiving sympathy looks.
"I didn't even say anything." said a crying Apollo (Earth-Prime). Artemis (Earth-Prime) now felt guilty and tried to apologize but he looks away from her in anger, "Leave me alone. Since when have you cared about me."
Everyone (both worlds) were shocked that he's not talking to her but Percy (Earth-Prime) secretly knows what's wrong. Chaos decided to read before any drama happens.
(This trip, I was determined to be good.)
"NO, DON'T BREAK THE RECORD!" screamed Chris (Earth-Prime).
"Don't worry, I doubt that Prissy would stay good." said a smirking Clarisse (Earth-Prime) as she pets the pouting Percy (Earth-Prime), who crosses his arms.
(All the way into the city, I put up with Nancy Bobofit, the freckled, redhead kelptomanic,)
"Nancy Bobofit? More like Nancy Boba Fett." said a joking Percy (Earth-1), receiving laughs from Percy (Earth-Prime), Chloe, Grover (Earth-Prime), Artemis (Earth-1), and Apollo (Earth-1) but a glare from Nancy (both worlds) for both insult and description.
"I like this kid. I like him a lot." said a laughing Artemis (Earth-1) as she hugs him.
"Me too." said Hermes (Earth-1) and Apollo (Earth-1). Percy (Earth-1) and Grover (Earth-1) shared a high-five.
(hitting my best friend Grover in the back of the head with chucks of peanut butter-and-ketchup sandwich.)
Percy (both worlds), Grover (both worlds), Juniper (both worlds), Apollo (both worlds), Artemis (Earth-1), Dionysus (Earth-Prime), and Satyrs (both worlds) were glaring at her, making her shiver from the glares. However, they also start groaning in disgust.
"Peanut butter and ketchup sandwich? Who would even eat that?" asked a disgusted Artemis (Earth-1).
"You're seriously asking that?" asked a confused Apollo (Earth-1), making her think about it and nod in agreement of how stupid that question is.
(Grover was an easy target. He was scrawny. He cried when he got frustrated. He must've been held back several grades because he was the only sixth grader with acne and the start of a wispy beard on his chin.)
"Really loving my description, Percy." said a sarcastic Grover (both worlds) while glaring at him. However, he still feels bad for not being a good friend to him.
"Sorry Grover." said a sheepish Percy (both worlds).
(On top of all that, he was crippled. He had a note excusing him from PE for the rest of his life because he had some kind of muscular decease in his legs. He walked funny, like every step hurt him, but don't let that fool you. You should've seen him run when it was enchilada day in the cafeteria.)
"Don't blame him, enchiladas are delicious." said a reasoning Percy (both worlds), causing Grover (both worlds) to smile at him.
"Idiotic boys." grumbled an irritated Artemis (Earth-Prime), receiving glares for that comment. Apollo (Earth-Prime) sighs sadly at this and Chaos comforted him.
'Sorry Apollo but she will never be the sister you had when you were kids. That girl is gone' whispered a sympathetic Chaos. Apollo (Earth-Prime) nods sadly with a small smile while Percy (Earth-1), Apollo (Earth-1), and Artemis (Earth-1) felt bad for him. Artemis (Earth-Prime) sees her brother's sadness but he ignores her, breaking her heart.
(Anyway, Nancy Bobofit was throwing wads of sandwich that stuck in his curly brown hair, and she knew I couldn't do anything back because I was already on probation.)
"I get blamed for everything." said a saddened Percy (both worlds). Chris (Earth-Prime) and Clarisse (Earth-Prime) comforts the older one while Apollo (Earth-1) and Artemis (Earth-1) comfort the younger one. However, Artemis (Earth-Prime) rolls her eyes but not in disgust, mostly annoyance and really not believing his innocence.
(The headmaster threatened me with death)
"WHAT?!" the nice people screamed in outrage. Artemis (Earth-Prime) frowned at Apollo (Earth-Prime), not liking how he is caring about a boy.
"Why that favoritism-" however, Clarisse (Earth-Prime) was cut off when Percy (Earth-Prime) covers her mouth with his hand while his counterpart does the same to Artemis (Earth-1).
(By in-school suspension)
"Oh." said the now calmed down people. However, the Gods (Earth-1) look suspiciously at Poseidon (Earth-Prime).
'Why does he care what happens to the demigod?' they thought to themselves. However, Apollo (Earth-1) and Artemis (Earth-1) are still overprotective over Percy (Earth-1).
"Sorry for overreacting. Percy has done a lot for us that we consider him family." said a sheepish Apollo (Earth-Prime) as the mentioned boy smiles at him. Artemis (Earth-Prime) was a little bit hurt that her brother would want the sea spawn as a brother.
(If anything bad, embarrassing, or even mildly entertaining happened on this trip.)
"Well that's fun." Nico (both worlds) drawled.
("I'm going to kill her." I mumbled.)
"DO IT!" said Ares (Earth-Prime) and the nice people who also want to kill her. He might be a bully himself but he is at least punished for it.
(Grover tried to calm me down. "It's okay. I like peanut butter.")
"Yeah but in your hair?" asked a very confused Apollo (Earth-1).
"Idiot." muttered an annoyed Artemis (Earth-1) but a spanking noise is heard and she flinched before covering her mouth to block her shrieking. Percy (Earth-1) spanked her for that insult. Artemis (Earth-Prime) saw that and glared at the boy but Percy (Earth-Prime) and Apollo (Earth-Prime) were shocked that he's getting away with it and are more surprised when Artemis (Earth-1) apologizes to Apollo (Earth-1), who is laughing at his sister's karma.
(He dodged another piece of Nancy's lunch. "That's it" I started to get up but Grover pulled me back to my seat.)
"Awe." said the pouting Ares (Earth-Prime) and the disappointed nice people.
"I wanted to see my sea princess kill her." said a very disappointed Clarisse (Earth-Prime) while Percy (Earth-Prime) and Chris (Earth-Prime) hug her in comfort, making her feel better. Annabeth (Earth-Prime) glares at this and wishes to be with her seaweed brain. Luke, Chloe, Grover (Earth-Prime), and Nico (Earth-Prime) saw this and just smirked, glad she's getting what's coming to her.
("You're already on probation." he reminded me. "You know who'll get blamed if anything happens.")
"He's right Percy." said a disappointed Luke.
(Looking back on it, I wish I'd decked Nancy Bobofit right then there.)
Artemis (Earth-Prime), Phoebe (Earth-Prime), and the Hunters (Earth-Prime) glare at Percy (both worlds) in complete hatred.
"I, Percy Jackson, swear on the river of Styx to never hit a girl for no reason." said a very honest Percy (both worlds) and thunder was heard, sealing the promise. When everyone looked at him, he finally explained. "One time, Lady Artemis pushed me way too far by bringing up the fact that Annabeth presumably had a right to ignore me and my daughter to focus on her selfish dreams and also the fact that she kissed Zander because I've been too distant from her and that she doesn't love me anymore. She also made the worst comment about my mom being hurt because I could've been a weak coward. In a fit of rage, I slapped her. When she was shocked, I yelled at her for being so sexist and abusive just because she has seen how girls are treated but doesn't see that some guys also have suffered pain and heartbreak. I even declared that I hate her because she's the reason why Bianca is dead. I promised Nico that I protect Bianca but I couldn't because she had to sacrifice her life for me. It should've been me. All my friends wouldn't die if I wasn't born."
Then he sat down and sobbed while Chris (Earth-Prime) and Clarisse (Earth-Prime) hug him in comfort while Luke and the nice people shed tears for him. Meanwhile, Nico (Earth-1) and Bianca (Earth-1) are stunned that she dies in the future and this causes him to hug her. Annabeth (Earth-Prime) was stunned that he is mad at her because she only cares about her dreams and kissed Zander. Okay, she is saddened that he saw Zander kissed her and blamed it on her, so she wants to make it up to Percy (Earth-Prime) and ask for a second chance but believes he's overreacting about the dreams stuff. Okay, so she maybe distant from him but she's an architect first and a girlfriend second. She really needs to have a talk with him and try to get him back. Thalia (Earth-Prime) looks down in shame and regret for what she did to him and hopes to make it up to him.
"Percy, I'm sorry-" said a regretful Thalia (Earth-Prime) but Percy (Earth-Prime) cut her off.
"Save it Thalia. You are worst than my older sister Diana. You care about what you want more than family. I regret bringing you out of that tree. After all I done, you didn't treat me like family. All you done is hate me or bully me for no reason. To be honest, I wanted you to be the big sister I've always wanted. But you just see me as someone you could blame for your own poor life. You and your brother turned everyone I love against me. I hate you. You're the reason why my so-called girlfriend and friends hate me. You're also the reason why my cousin Nico picks your side over mine. Stay away from me. You're not the same Thalia that everyone used to know. You're a monster, just like your parents." said a crying Percy (Earth-Prime). He then sits down and is comforted by Luke and Chloe. The nice people feel bad for him. Thalia (Earth-Prime) just cries in regret that she hurt the only boy that she considers as her younger brother. Diana (Earth-Prime) was also sad that she was hated. She really wishes to leave the hunt and have her brother back. However, they all see Artemis (Earth-Prime) glare.
"Of course it's your fault. Who else would be responsible, boy?" said a very angry and cruel Artemis (Earth-Prime) but only for Apollo (Earth-Prime) to shoot an arrow in her butt. He receives claps for that while Artemis (Earth-Prime) surprisingly pouts at this and looks at her brother in shock.
"Percy, I trust you. Don't fail me now." said a serious Artemis (Earth-1). Percy (both worlds) nods and salute.
(In-school suspension would've been nothing compared to the mess I was about to get myself into.)
"Wait what?" asked an overprotective Luke while Chris (Earth-Prime) and Clarisse (Earth-Prime) hug Percy (Earth-Prime) protectively.
(Mr. Brunner led the museum tour. He rode up front in his wheelchair, guiding us through the big echoey galleries, past marble statues and glass cases full of really old black and orange pottery. It blew my mind that this stuff had survived for two thousand, three thousand years.)
"It's longer than that, seaweed brain." said a proud Annabeth (Earth-Prime) but Percy (Earth-Prime) ignored her, much to her sadness.
(He gathered us around a third teen foot tall stone column with a big sphinx on top and started telling us how it was a grave marker, a stele, for a girl about our age. He told us about the carvings on the sides. I was trying to listen to what he had to say, because it was kind of interesting,)
"I guess he's not a seaweed brain after all." said Annabeth (Earth-Prime) but she is still ignored.
"Percy, why do you hide your intelligence?" asked a surprised Athena (Earth-Prime).
"I actually don't, your daughter makes me look like an idiot." said an annoyed Percy (Earth-Prime) while Annabeth (Earth-Prime) is getting annoyed by this hatred towards her. She really wants to talk with him after this chapter. However, Athena (Earth-Prime) nods in understanding and glares at her daughter.
"Young lady, I'll have a talk with you later." said an angry Athena (Earth-Prime).
(but everybody around me was talking and every time I told them to shut up, the other teacher chaperone, Mrs. Dodds, would give me the evil eye.)
"Talk about favoritism." said a very angry Diana (Earth-Prime) not liking how her little brother is being treated. Everyone else agrees but Hades (Earth-1) and Nico (Earth-1) are curious about that teacher. However, Percy (Earth-Prime) just ignored her, much to her sadness. Artemis (Earth-Prime) notices this and glares.
"Be grateful, boy. If it weren't for her, I would've killed you. But no, she tried convincing us that you needed to be raised. You deserve to be alone. She's your older sister and you should show her some respect, you ungrateful little shit." said a very stern Artemis (Earth-Prime) as an embarrassed Apollo (Earth-Prime) groaned but Percy (Earth-Prime) decided to talk back.
"You don't even know how to be a good older sister to your little brother. The only good thing you have done for him was helping your mom deliver him when he was born but when you grown up, you started being a jerk to him and did not care for him anymore. He makes those jokes because he loves you and really wants your attention. He wants back the sweet and innocent girl who acted like a loving sister during his childhood. Well, I'm sorry to him but he should give up. That girl is gone. You're just a selfish, cruel, arrogant, and sexist brat who is worst than all the men she hates. When you killed Orion, I bet you enjoyed doing that. You're a heartless, cold blooded murderer who doesn't care about people that are innocent or not. You never fight for innocent women, you hunt, kill, and abuse for the love of being superior. You're a monster. Right now, you're going to let it out of your system, then sit down, and shut the fuck up." said a very brave Percy (Earth-Prime), who got shocked looks and gasps from everyone. Luke, Chris (Earth-Prime), and Clarisse (Earth-Prime) just smirked and always remember that this is why they love him. Chloe cheered for her daddy. Poseidon (Earth-Prime) just grinned in satisfaction and is proud of his son while mentally saying 'Good Percy'. Apollo (Earth-Prime) smiled at him for telling Artemis (Earth-Prime) off while Leto (Earth-Prime) respected him for that. Zeus (Earth-Prime) was enraged that this demigod dares insult his daughter. Thalia (Earth-Prime) and Diana (Earth-Prime) were shocked and horrified by their little brother's foul language. However, the angry goddess just walked towards him and slapped him across the left cheek. The boy flinched from the slap and shed a few tears. Clarisse (Earth-Prime) hugged him and kissed his slap mark but he was crying, breaking the hearts of nice female people. She, along with everyone, glared at the goddess. Apollo (Earth-Prime) glared at his sister in complete hatred. This is not the sister he used to know.
"Boy, what did you just say to me?" said a now abusive Artemis (Earth-Prime) as she grabbed the boy's shirt collar. However, he just glared and spit blood in her face.
"FUCK YOU!" yelled an upset Percy (Earth-Prime). Artemis (Earth-Prime) growled and was about to beat him up with a bottle she just got out of nowhere. He winces in fear while the others fear for his life. However, Apollo (Earth-Prime) and Ezekiel (Earth-Prime) then stand up for Percy (Earth-Prime).
"Hey, this is going way too far. I will not let you harm my brother." said a disgusted Apollo (Earth-Prime) as his sister was shocked by him but also hurt that he is replacing her with a male while she growls at her so-called son for getting in the way. Everyone is also shocked that he's standing up to Artemis (Earth-Prime).
"Apollo, you dare turn against your own sister? And you little bastard dare rebel towards your own mother?" said an enraged Zeus (Earth-Prime) but the sun god didn't back down.
"She is no sister of mine, Lord Zeus. The only people I consider siblings are Percy Jackson and Hermes. When my sister said I was no brother of hers and reminded me of Diane, Percy comforted me and offered me to be his brother. I accepted. Me, him, and Hermes would go around pranking the gods because I realized I hate you because you weren't there for me or my mom. When she was banished, you didn't do a damn thing. You chose Hera over us. The only family I have are Percy Jackson, Chloe Hermes, Poseidon, Leto, Hestia, Luke Castellan, Chris Rodriquez, Will Solace, Rachel Elizabeth Dare, Tyson, Perseus, Theseus, Prometheus, the Romans, Hermes cabin, and Apollo cabin. You're dictatorship is getting old, old man." said a very brave Apollo (Earth-Prime), receiving claps from the nice people. Will (Earth-Prime) and Rachel (Earth-Prime) hug their father, who hugged back.
"That woman is no mother of mine. The only person she is a mother of is my stupid sister. All she's done is punish me for things that are not my fault and thinks she owns me. She's the reason why I ran away from Greek mythology and lived in Canada. My adoptive parents are the only ones who took care of me and loved me as an actual son. I could also care less about my father who wasn't there for me. Uncle Apollo saved me from Artemis. Speaking of her, I disowned her because she was a monster who hated me for being born a male and for my dad's disappearance. I will never be related to a sociopathic bitch like her ever again." said an angry Ezekiel (Earth-Prime) showing his hatred for his abusive mother. Orion (Earth-Prime) was ashamed of what he's done while Artemis (Earth-Prime) was shocked and heart broken by this before glaring at Percy (Earth-Prime) and blaming him for taking away her brother and son.
'Damn you, boy. I'm going to turn you into a pet Guinea Pig, get my brother and little bastard back, and make sure that I'll have everything. What I want, I get. You better watch out because I'm coming.' thought an angry and vengeful Artemis (Earth-Prime) as she starts her plan. However, Chaos heard her thought and also planned to warn the others about this.
"One more thing, Arty." said a now serious Apollo (Earth-Prime) while his sister looks at him in interest but what shocked her is that he has his bags with him. "We are done. I'm no longer your brother nor your healer. I'm leaving your Hunt. You're not the same sister I used to know. You're nothing but a sexist sociopathic brat who takes everything she wants. Not all males are horrible. Females like you are horrible too."
The upset goddess couldn't take it anymore and let out mournful moans about her brother while the Hunt (Earth-Prime) are also saddened that he's leaving them and comfort their mistress.
"There, there mistress. He's just angry right now, he didn't mean it. You'll have him back." said a smiling Phoebe (Earth-Prime). Artemis (Earth-Prime) smiles at her hunters.
"You're right. Apollo doesn't understand I was just angry and I wanted to toughen him up. He knows I love him and wants me to be his little sis. As soon as this is over, we'll just have him back. And as for Annabeth, she can have Percy if she wants. I'm not gonna stop her. Instead of killing men, we make them pets. All agreed?" said a smirking Artemis (Earth-Prime) as they agree. They should've thought of that. Annabeth (Earth-Prime) smiles at this and is glad that they want to help her. However, Apollo (Earth-Prime) and the others groan. Percy (Earth-Prime) shivers at this. Thalia (Earth-Prime) and Diana (Earth-Prime) agree that at the end of the story, they are leaving the hunt and staying with their little brother. Chloe and her friends are glad they left the hunt. They all agree that the goddess has gone completely insane. Then Artemis (Earth-Prime) goes to her father for permission and he nods.
"I, Zeus, King of the Gods and your father, hereby give you permission to put that boy in his place and for you to marry your brother Apollo so that you can teach him some manners. As for your little bastard, you will teach him his proper place." said a serious Zeus (Earth-Prime). Artemis (Earth-Prime) and the Hunt (Earth-Prime) cheer while everyone (both worlds) else glare at the King God.
"Uncle Percy, can I live with you?" asked a worried Ezekiel (Earth-Prime).
"Sure, you can." said a serious Percy (Earth-Prime).
"By the way, what does Ezekiel have against his mother?" asked a worried Thalia (Earth-Prime), she really wants to know about her nephew.
"He hates Artemis because she abused him. When he was born, Orion left and never came back. She and her daughter hated Ezekiel for what happened and took their anger out on him. When he went to a school, he tried to befriend the girls but he was rejected because she made a lies about him being a bad person. He was so depressed that he harmed himself. Apollo had enough and took him away so he can be raised by people who love him. However, he has a hatred of females because of how they treated him. That's why he made sexist comments. The only women that ever loved him were Zoe and Ella." said a sad Percy (Earth-Prime) and now everyone felt bad for him. Artemis (Earth-Prime) getting glared at by Orion (Earth-Prime).
(Mrs. Dodds was this little math teacher from Georgia who always wore a black leather jacket, even though she was fifty years old. She looked mean enough to ride a Harley right into your locker.)
"Isn't she too old to ride a bike?" asked a joking Percy (Earth-1), receiving laughs from Apollo (Earth-1) and Artemis (Earth-1). They're liking this kid more and more. After this, they got to take him to the hunt (Earth-1), who are also liking this boy and considering him a fellow hunter.
(She had come to Yancy halfway through the year, when our last teacher had a nervous breakdown.)
"What did you do?" said a groaning Clarisse (Earth-Prime).
"I might have once pretended to have been stabbed with a fake knife and squirted out fake blood. I then pretended to be dying and started asking him why did he kill me." explained Percy (both worlds).
Apollo (both worlds), Artemis (Earth-1), Hermes (both worlds), and the pranksters (both worlds) laugh at that. The same teacher (Earth-1) glared. Luke, Chris (Earth-Prime), the Stolls (Earth-Prime), Leo (Earth-Prime), and Nico (Earth-Prime) bowed to him.
"We are not worthy." they said over and over again. Zoe (Earth-Prime), Clarisse (Earth-Prime), Piper (Earth-Prime), and Thalia (Earth-Prime) shake their heads fondly at them. However, Artemis (Earth-Prime) notices the first reaction and frowns but also finds the prank kind of funny, mostly because the target was a male. Meanwhile, Apollo (Earth-1) and Artemis (Earth-1) hug Percy (Earth-1) while the Moon Goddess starts kissing him.
"You-kiss-are-kiss-a-kiss-genius." said a smiling Artemis (Earth-1) as she keeps kissing him, making him blush. Aphrodite (Earth-1) smirks, planning to pair those two up. Annabeth (Earth-1) was jealous of this.
(From her first day, Mrs. Dodds loved Nancy Bobofit and figured I was devil spawn.)
"No, that's Nico." said a joking Thalia (Earth-Prime).
"HEY! Shut up Tree Goth." said a very annoyed Nico (Earth-Prime). Thalia (Earth-Prime) is heartbroken that her ex-boyfriend is still mad at her. Chaos notices this and sighs.
'Thalia, it's gonna take a more than that to get forgiveness.' Chaos voice said in Thalia (Earth-Prime)'s head, causing her to nod sadly. She actually loves her cousins and had a short crush on Percy (Earth-Prime) but thought she couldn't because of him being a sea spawn. She really needs to make it up to her little brother.
(She would point her crooked finger at me and say, "Now, honey." real sweet, and I knew I was going to get after school detention for a month.)
Hades (Earth-1) and Nico (Earth-1) silently gasp and mentally say 'Oh no', recognizing her as Alecto. Not only are they worried about their favorite nephew/cousin but Poseidon (Earth-Prime)'s not going to be happy when he finds out. Hazel (both worlds) and Bianca (Earth-1) also recognize her and get worried for their cousin.
(One time, after she'd made me erase answers out of old math workbooks until midnight,)
"WHAT?! THAT'S CHILD ABUSE!" everyone who cared about him screamed. Even the mean people were shocked by such a punishment.
"I get she wants you to learn but that's too far." said a shocked Athena (Earth-1) while her daughter was also surprised by such a cruel punishment.
"And I thought my mom was worst." said a surprised Ezekiel (Earth-Prime) as Artemis (Earth-Prime) looks at him in shock.
(I told Grover I didn't think she was human. He looked at me, real serious, and said, "You're absolutely right.")
"I feel the same way, satyr. That punishment is not human." said an understanding Athena (Earth-Prime), who agreed that the punishment was not human. Everyone agreed, this woman was out to get the boy.
(Mr. Brunner kept talking and talking about Greek funeral art. Finally, Nancy Bobofit snickered something about the naked guy on the stele, and I turned around and I said, "Will you shut up?")
"Good work Percy." said a very relieved Athena (Earth-1). When she was receiving looks from everyone else, she quickly explained. "She is interrupting an important history lesson."
This made everyone understand. Annabeth (Earth-1) smiles at Percy (Earth-1) and thinks there is maybe still hope for him.
'Maybe I can keep him with me.' thought a happy Annabeth (Earth-1).
(It came out louder than I meant it to.)
"Of course it did, young man." said an exhausted Athena (Earth-Prime). However, he ignored her, making her sigh in sadness. He is still mad at her for turning her children against him.
(The whole group laughed. Mr. Brunner stopped his story. "Mr. Jackson," he said. "did you have a comment." My face went totally red. I said "No, sir.")
"Don't worry, you're cute when you blush." said a teasing Artemis (Earth-1). Percy (Earth-1) smiled at her.
(Mr. Brunner pointed to one of the pictures of the stele. "Perhaps you'll tell us what this picture represents?")
"Ten drachmas that disgusting boy doesn't know it." said a smirking Artemis (Earth-Prime). Everyone glared at her for this cruelty but luckily Apollo (Earth-Prime) stood up to her.
"I'll take that bet, Moonbitch." said an irritated Apollo (Earth-Prime). Artemis (Earth-Prime) frowns, still upset that he's mad at her.
(I looked at the craving, and felt a flush of relief, because I recognized it.)
"Pay up, Arty." said a smirking Apollo (Earth-Prime) as his scowling sister pays him but is still hurt that he's not taking her side.
("That's Kronos eating his kids, right.")
All of Kronos (both worlds)'s kids groan and glare at Kronos (Earth-1) for that reminder.
"Why that out of all of them?" asked a very annoyed Hera (Earth-1), not liking the memory of getting eaten by her own father.
"You know, he needs to work on his parenting skills." said a very disappointed Chaos, who didn't like the idea of a father eating his kids. Everyone agreed with him.
("Yes" Mr. Brunner said, obviously not satisfied. "And he did this because..." "Well..." I racked my brain to remember, "Kronos was the king god and-")
"GOD?!" shouted the now angry and offended Gods (both worlds) and Titans (Earth-1).
"You better watch your back for that." said an angry Thor (Earth-Prime).
"Do not compare me to those childish dictators." said an offended Kronos (Earth-1). He got glares for the nicknames but he's too offended to even care.
"HOW DARE YOU!" said an enraged Zeus (Earth-1). It's taking awhile for people to restrain him from killing him for that insult.
"Why would you say that? It's King Titan." said a surprised Percy (Earth-1), who can't believe his older counterpart would say such an insult. "Anyway, I'm pretty sure the teacher corrected him."
Chiron (Earth-Prime) nodded, also not wanting his student to get killed.
("God?" Mr. Brunner asked. "Titan," I corrected myself.)
"Good." said the now calmed down Gods (both worlds) but they are still angered.
"Sorry." said a sheepishly smiling Percy (Earth-Prime). He might be brave but he's not stupid enough to go up against all of them.
("And...he didn't trust his kids, who were the Gods. So, um, Kronos ate them, right? But his wife hid baby Zeus, and gave Kronos a rock to eat instead.)
Kronos (Earth-1) looked at his wife in betrayal while Zeus (both worlds) smiled at her in thanks.
"Gee, what a rockhead?" said a laughing Percy (Earth-Prime), earning laughs from the nice people but Zeus (Earth-Prime) glared dangerously at him.
(And later, when Zeus grew up, he tricked his dad, Kronos, into barfing up his brothers and sisters_" "Eeew!" said one of the girls behind me.)
"Ew does not describe it." said a disgusted Hera (both worlds) while the other four nodded in agreement. Zeus (both worlds) is thankful that he wasn't eaten.
("-and so they're was this big fight between the gods and the titans," I continued, "and the gods won.")
Everyone stared at Percy (Earth-Prime) in shock.
"You took three thousand years fighting, and shrunk it into three sentences." said a shocked Athena (both worlds) while Annabeth (Earth-Prime) hugged Percy (Earth-Prime).
"That's our seaweed brain." said a happy Annabeth (Earth-Prime) but Percy (Earth-Prime) flinches away from her, much to her sadness. She wants him to know she loves him. Then she finally snaps. 'Damn you seaweed brain. Whether you like it or not, you belong to me.' thought an possessive Annabeth (Earth-Prime), who plans to have him all to herself. Artemis (Earth-Prime) notices this and smirked, realizing they both want the boys. She has found an alliance member. However, Chaos knows what she was thinking and plans to warn the boy after the chapter. For now, he continues reading.
(Some snickers from the group. Behind me, Nancy Bobofit mumbled to a friend, "Like we're going to use this in real life. Like it's going to say on job applications, 'Please explain why Kronos ate his kids'.")
"Hey, why don't you try living through that?" said a very angry Demeter (Earth-1), who is getting sick of this girl's disrespect for others. The other four agreed.
("And why, Mr. Jackson," Brunner said, "to paraphrase Miss Bobofit's excellent question, does this matter in real life?")
"Busted." said a happy Luke.
("Busted." Grover muttered.)
Luke and Grover (Earth-Prime) smile at each other and high-five. Luke forgiven him because he made it up to Percy (Earth-Prime) and has shown true remorse.
("Shut up." Nancy hissed, her face even brighter than her hair. At least Nancy got packed too. Mr. Brunner was the only one who ever caught her saying anything wrong. He had radar ears.)
"More like horse ears." muttered the Stolls (Earth-Prime) but now feel regret realizing Percy (Earth-Prime) didn't rat them out and that the Grace siblings lied to them.
"I heard that." said an annoyed Chiron (Earth-Prime), making them gulp nervously.
(I thought about his question, and shrugged. "I don't know, sir.")
Chris (Earth-Prime) and Clarisse (Earth-Prime) pat him on the shoulders in sympathy while Annabeth (Earth-Prime) rolls her eyes at him but this got her a glare from Luke.
("I see." Mr. Brunner looks disappointed. "Well, half credit, Mr. Jackson. Zeus did indeed feed Kronos a mixture of mustard and wine, which made him disgorge his other five children, who, of course, being immortal gods, had been living and growing up completely undigested in the Titan's stomach.)
"Worse time of my life." said a disgusted Hades (both worlds). The other four who got eaten nodded in agreement
(The gods defeated their father, sliced him to pieces with his own scythe, and scattered his remains in Tartarus, the darkest part of the Underworld.)
"However, this world's version of Kronos was actually forced to carry Pandora's temple on his back for all of eternity." said Chaos, causing others to be shocked at that kind of punishment.
"Yeah, Zeus was really brutal back then." said a sad Hestia (Earth-1). Zeus (Earth-1) flinched at the reminder of his past self and was disappointed in himself for acting like his Prime counterpart.
(On that happy note, it's time for lunch. Mrs. Dodds, would lead us back outside?")
"Man, he needs to learn how to change the subject." said an annoyed Hermes (both worlds). Everyone agrees.
(The class drifted off, the girls holding their stomachs, the guys pushing each other around and acting like doofuses.)
"Ugh disgusting males." said a sneering Artemis (Earth-Prime) but only to get glares.
"Hey, the only mature boys are Percy, Apollo, and Chaos." said a smiling Artemis (Earth-1), receiving hugs and kisses from Percy (Earth-1) and Apollo (Earth-1) for that compliment. She blushes and smiles at them.
Artemis (Earth-Prime) then realizes what she meant and looked at her brother but he looks away from her. She is heartbroken that he has given up on her. She does love him and cares for him but she just wishes that he becomes mature and starts being serious. She also wishes to not be called Little Sis because she's older and is the one who delivered him. Unknown to everyone else, she's fallen in love with him. She needs to talk with him and get him to love her back but she mentally tells herself to be patient and wait to make the fool-proof plan.
(Grover and I were about to follow when Mr. Brunner said, "Mr. Jackson." I knew that was coming. I told Grover to keep going. Then I turned toward Mr. Brunner. "Sir?" Mr. Brunner had this look that wouldn't let you go- intense brown eyes that could've been a thousand years old and had seen everything.)
"They have." said a chuckling Chiron (both worlds).
("You must know learn the answer to my question." Mr. Brunner told me. "About the titans?" "About real life. And how your studies apply to it." "Oh." "What you learn from me," he said "is vitally important. I expect you to treat it as such. I will accept only the best from you, Percy Jackson.")
"Percy, I did not want to risk you being unable to stop a monster when I could have taught you how." said a remorseful Chiron (Earth-Prime). Percy (Earth-Prime) waves him off and is not mad. Luke wanted to say something but Percy (Earth-Prime) calmed him down.
"Luke calm down. I am not angry nor should you be. Okay?" said a serious Percy (Earth-Prime). Luke nodded. Annabeth (Earth-Prime) noticed this and glare suspiciously at them.
(I wanted to get angry, this guy pushed me too hard.)
"Chiron, don't apologize. You only want what's best for me." said a smiling Percy (Earth-Prime). Chiron (Earth-Prime) smiles as well but Artemis (Earth-Prime) and Athena (Earth-1) scoffed, thinking he putting on an act. However, Apollo (Earth-Prime) shoots an arrow at her, still angry at her behavior.
(I mean, sure, it was kind of cool on tournament days, when he dressed up in a suit of Roman armor and shouted: "What ho!" and challenged us, sword point against chalk, to run to the board and name every Greek and Roman person who ever lived, and their mother, and what god they worshipped.)
"That sounds AWESOME!" said a grinning Will (both worlds).
"It was." said a laughing Percy (both worlds).
(But Mr. Brunner expected me to be as good as everybody else, despite the fact that I have dyslexia and attention deficit disorder and I had never made above C- in my life.)
"WHAT?! Daughter, how could you date him?" said a shocked Athena (Earth-Prime).
"I don't know." said an annoyed Annabeth (Earth-Prime). Then she realizes what she just said, "Wait Percy, I didn't mean it."
However, Percy (Earth-Prime) just looked away from her with tears in his eyes. The nice people frown at her and shake their heads. Poseidon (Earth-Prime) is also mad at her for how she treats him and what she did to him. He still doesn't forgive her.
"Wow, even your girlfriend doesn't like you. I bet your mom doesn't want you around." said a smirking Zander, earning glares from everyone else. Even Logan and Lucy were disgusted by that remark. Sure, they ruined their brother's life but they are starting to like him and know not to insult someone's mother. However, he gets punched by Thalia (Earth-Prime).
"Don't talk about his mom like that. Do you got that, dumbass?" said an angry Thalia (Earth-Prime). Zander peed his pants and nodded before being shoved down. Percy (Earth-Prime) was shocked but still cried about his mom and was comforted by Chris (Earth-Prime) and Clarisse (Earth-Prime) with a hug. He told them what happened to his mother and they cared about her too. Luke was saddened about her. The others wonder what's wrong but Poseidon (Earth-Prime), Hermes (Earth-Prime), and Apollo (Earth-Prime) shake their heads. Artemis (Earth-Prime) notices this and wonders what her brother knows.
(No- he didn't expect me to be good; he expects me to be better. And I just couldn't learn all those names and facts, much less spell them correctly.)
"He was simply doing his job. Leave him alone." said a serious Percy (Earth-Prime), giving a small glare at his friends who were about to say something but backed down.
(I mumbled something about trying harder, while Mr. Brunner took one long sad look at the stele, like he'd been at this girl's funeral.)
"I have. She was a sweet young child. Heart full of love and hope." said a very sad Chiron (both worlds). They had a moment of silence for the young girl. Meanwhile, Apollo (both worlds) and his children frown at the mention of her death because she was his child. Artemis (Earth-Prime) recognized her as one of her Hunters but receives a glare from her brother for causing her death. She really wants her brother to make a joke now but he's still acting mature. She can't take this no more, she wants her brother back.
(He told me to go outside and eat my lunch. The class gathered on the front steps of the museum, where we could watch the foot traffic along Fifth Avenue. Overhead a huge storm was brewing, with clouds bicker than I'd ever seen over the city.)
"What in Chaos name got you angry dad?" asked a very curious Hermes (Earth-1). Zeus (Earth-1) shrugged having no clue why he was upset. Chaos frowned at him for using his name as a swear word.
(New York state has been weird since Christmas. We'd had massive snow storms, flooding, wildfires from lightning strikes. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a hurricane blowing in.)
"What the hell, now Uncle P is getting involved?" asked a shocked Apollo (Earth-1). Poseidon (Earth-1) looked confused.
"Why am I so angry?" asked a confused Poseidon (Earth-1).
(Nobody else seemed to notice. Some of the guys were pelting pigeons with Lunchables crackers.)
Artemis (Earth-Prime) went to say something but her lips became glued shut. She looked at her twin brother, who glared at her with a warning. This broke her heart even more.
"This is why Arty hates guys." said an annoyed Percy (Earth-1) while the Moon Goddess agreed with the kid.
(Nancy Bobofit was trying to pickpocket something from a lady's purse, and, of course Mrs. Dodds wasn't seeing a thing.)
"Hermes, is she your kid?" asked a curious Apollo (Earth-1).
"I hope not." said a very upset Hermes (Earth-1).
"Yeah, the book said try. Hermes kids never try, they just do it." said an agreeing Percy (Earth-1) with the said kids agreeing.
("Detention?" Grover asked. "Nah," I said. "Not from Brunner. I just wish he'd lay off sometimes. I mean- I'm not a genius.")
"But you're my genius." said a smiling Annabeth (Earth-Prime) as she tried to hug him but he flinched. He still won't talk to her.
(Grover didn't say anything for a while. Then, when I thought he was going to give me some deep philosophical comment to make me feel better he said, "Can I have your apple?")
"This for not giving him a much more better comment." said an annoyed Clarisse (Earth-Prime) who slaps the satyr upside the head.
(I don't have much of an appetite, so I let him take it. I watch stream of cabs coming down Fifth Avenue, and thought about my mom's only a little ways uptown from where we sat. I hadn't seen her since Christmas. I wanted so bad to jump in a taxi and head home. She'd hug me and be glad to see me, but she'd be disappointed, too. She'd send me right back to Yancy, remind me to that I had to try harder, even if this was my sixth school in six years and I was probably going to be kicked out again. I wouldn't be able to stand that sad look she's give me.)
All the females say "awe" at this while Sally (Earth-1) smiles at Percy (both worlds) but they see Percy (Earth-Prime) crying at the mention of his mother. Poseidon (Earth-Prime) comforts him. However, Ares (Earth-1) scoffed.
"Cowardly wimp. You shouldn't care about your mother's feelings." said a very disgusted Ares (Earth-1), earning some glares. Even his counterpart was annoyed by that comment due to still living with his mom.
"How would you know? You still live with yours, you motorcycle dick." said an angry Percy (Earth-Prime) while he is sheading tears. Aphrodite (Earth-Prime) comforts him while her counterpart and Hephaestus (Earth-1) glare at the war god in disgust. Hera (Earth-1) was also offended by the war god's remark due to being the mother of that god and it hurt her that her own son doesn't about her feelings. She decided to show her anger.
"YOU MISERABLE LITTLE BASTARD! I OUGHT TO PUT YOU OVER MY KNEE AND-" yelled an angry Hera (Earth-1) but Zeus (Earth-1) covers her mouth so she won't finish that sentence.
(Mr. Brunner parked his wheelchair at the base of the handicapped ramp. He ate celery while he read a paperback novel. A red umbrella stuck up from the back of his chair, making it look like a motorized café table.)
"Idea!" shouted Hephaestus (both worlds), Leo (both worlds), Charlie (Earth-1), and the whole Hephaestus cabin while writing said idea down. Aphrodite (both worlds), Calypso (Earth-1), Piper (Earth-Prime), and Silena (Earth-1) shake their heads fondly. Percy (Earth-Prime) and Aphrodite (Earth-Prime) notices this and plan on getting the friends together.
(I was about to unwrap my sandwich when Nancy Bobofit appeared in front of me with her ugly friends- I guess she'd gotten tired of stealing from the tourists- and dumped her half-eaten in Grover's lap.)
The nice people growled at this.
"Hey, Prissy, if you know where she lives, let me beat her up. I'll show her whose tuffer." said an annoyed Clarisse (Earth-1).
"Here, here Clarisse." said an agreeing Thalia (Earth-1).
("Oops." She grinned at me with her crooked teeth. Her freckles were orange, as if somebody had spray-painted her face with liquid Cheetos.)
"Okay, did not need that in my head and I like Cheetos." said a disgusted Apollo (Earth-Prime) with everyone agreeing.
"Idiot" muttered an annoyed Artemis (Earth-Prime) but only to get glared at for that remark. She needs to seriously go through with this plan.
(I tried to keep my cool. The school counselor had told me a millions times, "Count to ten, get control of your temper." But I was so mad my mind went blank. A waves roared in my eyes.)
'A wave?' thought the curious Gods (Earth-1). However, Apollo (Earth-1) and Artemis (Earth-1) both gasp and look at Percy (Earth-1), who also got the hint. They look at Percy (Earth-Prime), who nodded in confirmation. They then get worried about their father's reaction. Meanwhile, Annabeth (Earth-1) was getting upset and hoping that it's not what she thinks it is.
(I don't remember touching her, but the next thing I knew, Nancy was sitting on her butt in the fountain, screaming, "Percy pushed me!")
"Whiny baby." muttered the nice people.
(Mrs. Dodds materialized next to us.)
Everyone got worried about it.
(Some of the kids were whispering: "Did you see-" "-the water-" "-like it grabbed her-")
The Gods (Earth-1) gasp and look at Poseidon (both worlds) with shocked looks. Percy (both worlds) have holographic tridents on top of their heads.
"Poseidon, you broke the oath?" said a tired Zeus (Earth-1), who groaned at having his rule broken. Unlike his counterpart, he's not angry but only annoyed.
"So did you." said a fearless Poseidon (Earth-1), who smiled at his son.
"Thanks dad." said a smiling Percy (Earth-1), as his father smiles back.
'His father is Poseidon?' thought a shocked Annabeth (Earth-1) before she glares at Percy (Earth-1), 'Sea spawn.' Then she starts thinking about it, 'I guess I can still date him.'
(I didn't know what they were talking about. All I knew was that I was in trouble again. As soon as Mrs. Dodds was sure poor Nancy was okay,)
"Poor Nancy, my immortal ass." scoffed an annoyed Artemis (Earth-1) as the nice people agree. Artemis (Earth-Prime) looked shocked her counterpart didn't defend a girl.
(promising to get her a new shirt at the museum gift shop etc., etc., Mrs. Dodds turned on me.)
"She better not have touched him." said a snarling Thalia (Earth-Prime) and Diana (Earth-Prime), not wanting her anywhere near their little brother.
(There was a triumphant fire in her eyes, as if I'd done something she'd been waiting for all semester. "Now honey-" "I know," I grumbled, "A month of erasing workbooks.")
"NO YOU IDIOT!" yelled the Hermes cabin (both worlds)
"You never guess you're punishment." said a worried Apollo (Earth-1).
"It makes it worst." said an agreeing Artemis (Earth-1). When she saw the looks, she explains, "I'm the female ninja who helped pull pranks. Ares harassed Zoe but we pranked him. Percy was with us."
Percy (Earth-1) and Apollo (Earth-1) smile at this and share a hug with her, which she returns.
(That wasn't the right thing to say.)
"Told ya." said the scoffing pranksters.
("Come with me." Mrs. Dodds said. "Wait!" Grover yelped, "It was me. I pushed her.")
"You're a good friend." said a smiling Hestia (both worlds).
(I stared at him, stunned. I couldn't believe he was trying to cover for me. Mrs. Dodds scared Grover to death.)
"Don't blame him." said an agreeing Luke. Everyone agrees.
(She glared at him so hard, his whiskery chin trembled. "I don't think so, Mr. Underwood." she said. "But-" "You-will-stay-here." Grover looked at me desperately. "It's okay, man." I told him. "Thanks for trying." "Honey," Mrs. Dodds barked at me. "Now." Nancy Bobofit smirked.)
Luke, Chris (Earth-Prime), Clarisse (both worlds), Thalia (both worlds), Diana (Earth-Prime), and Artemis (Earth-1) glare at this. There gonna find this bitch and hurt her really, really bad. However, Percy (both worlds) calms them down.
(I gave her my I'll-kill-you-later stare.)
"I've heard of that stare. You do not want to be on the receiving end of that." said a very nervous Thor (Earth-Prime). Everyone agrees.
"Here's the scary part, that was my regular stare." said a smirking Percy (Earth-Prime) as he laughs at their reaction.
"Yeah right, I bet it's not scarier than mine." said a arrogant Ares (Earth-1). Percy (Earth-1) shrugs and gives him the stare, making him scared. Everyone else finds it a little scary. Then they smell pee coming from an embarrassed Artemis (Earth-Prime)'s pants, causing Percy (Earth-Prime) to laugh. She glares at him in complete hatred.
'Oh ho, you're going to pay for that.' thought a vengeful Artemis (Earth-Prime).
(Then I turned to face Mrs. Dodds but she wasn't there. She was standing at the museum entrance, way at the top of the steps, gesturing impatiently at me to come on. How's she get there so fast?)
"Dude, she's a monster." said a scared Leo (Earth-Prime) while Piper (Earth-Prime) comforts him and they hold hands. They look at each other and smile while blushing. Percy (both worlds), Hephaestus (both worlds), and Aphrodite (both worlds) see this and smile. Jason (Earth-Prime) glares at them in jealousy while Calypso (Earth-Prime) looks saddened.
(I have moments like that a lot, when my brain falls asleep or something, and the next thing I know I've missed something, as if a puzzle piece fell out of and left me staring at the blank place behind it. The school counselor told me this was part of the ADHD, my brain misinterpreting things.)
"It really annoys the crap out of me." said an annoyed Percy (both worlds) with the demigods agreeing with him. Even the mean ones had to agree.
(I wasn't so sure. I went after Mrs. Dodds.)
"Why?" asked an annoyed Artemis (Earth-1).
"I thought she was a teacher that was going to discipline me." said a defensive Percy (Earth-Prime). They all shrug, accepting this answer.
(Halfway up the steps, I glanced back at Grover. He was looking pale, cutting his eyes between me and Mr. Brunner, like he wanted Mr. Brunner to notice what was going on, but Mr. Brunner was absorbed in his novel.)
They all glare at Chiron (Earth-Prime), making him nervous and guilty.
(I looked back up. Mrs. Dodds had disappeared again. She was now inside the building, at the end of the entrance hall. Okay, I thought. She's going to make me buy a new shirt for Nancy at the gift shop.)
"What's so special about her?" asked an annoyed Luke (Earth-Prime).
(But apparently, that wasn't the plan.)
"It never is." said a sighing Annabeth (Earth-Prime).
(I followed her deeper into the museum. When I finally caught up to her, we were back in the Greek and Roman section. Except for us, the gallery was empty.)
"Ah no witnesses." said a worried Artemis (Earth-1).
(Mrs. Dodds stood with her arms crossed with her arms crossed in front of a big marble frieze of the Greek gods. She was making this weird noise in her throat, like growling. Even without the noise, I would've been nervous. It's weird being alone with a teacher, especially Mrs. Dodds. Something about the way she looked at the frieze as if she wanted to pulverize it...)
"Probably wanted to." said a concerned Hazel (Earth-1), also recognizing that creature.
("You've been giving us problems, honey." she said. I did the safe thing. I said, "Yes, ma'am.")
"Oh so you show respect for her but not us?" asked an irritated Zeus (Earth-Prime).
"I only respect those that deserve it." said an annoyed Percy (Earth-Prime).
(She tugged on the cuffs of her leather jacket. "Did you really think you would get away with it?" The look in her eyes were beyond mad. It was evil. She's a teacher, I thought nervously. It's not like she's going to hurt me. I said, "I'll-I'll try harder, ma'am." Thunder shook the building. "We are not fools, Percy Jackson." Mrs. Dodds said. "It was only a matter of time before we found you out. Confess, and you will suffer less pain." I didn't know what she was talking about. All I could think of was that the teachers must've found the illegal stash of candy I'd been selling out of my dorm room.)
Hermes (both worlds) and his children (both worlds) give a thumbs up.
(Or maybe they'd realized I got my essay on Tom Sawyer from the internet without ever reading the book and now they were going to take away my grade. Or worse, they were going to make me read the book.)
"SEAWEED BRAIN!" yelled an angry and irritated Annabeth (Earth-Prime) as she, her mother, and her cabin glare at Percy (both worlds).
"FOR FUCK'S SAKE, WHY DOES HE HATE SCHOOL?" asked an enraged Athena (Earth-1).
"I have a disorder that prevents me from reading English." said a now nervous Percy (Earth-1).
"Nice try. MOM!" said a irritated Annabeth (Earth-1). The wisdom goddess snaps her fingers and a book appears in the boy's lap.
"It's in Greek and you'll read it after this chapter." said a serious Athena (Earth-1) but unknown to her, Artemis (Earth-1) took the book and burned it.
"Calm down Annabeth, not all people have to study. He's right, we have dyslexia and ADHD so we can't read English." said an understanding Thalia (Earth-1) while Percy (both worlds) gives a grateful look. Zeus (Earth-1) looks guilty.
"Okay, maybe giving them that was a bad idea." said a guilty Zeus (Earth-1) with the other gods agreeing.
("Well?" she demanded. "Ma'am, I don't..." "Your time is up," she hissed. Then the weirdest thing happened. Her eyes began to glow like barbecue coals. Her fingers stretched, turning into talons. Her jacket melted into large, leathery wings. She wasn't human. She was a shriveled hag with bat wings and claws and a mouth full of yellow fangs, and she was about to slice me to ribbons.)
Everyone gasped in fear, it's a fury. Apollo (Earth-Prime) and Hermes (Earth-Prime) had to restrain Poseidon (Earth-Prime) from attacking Hades (Earth-Prime) while Percy (Earth-1) and Apollo (Earth-1) tie Artemis (Earth-1) to her throne to stop her from attacking Hades (Earth-1).
"Let me go you two. I just want to talk with him about hurting kids." said an angry Artemis (Earth-1) but Percy (Earth-1) and Apollo (Earth-1) shake their heads.
"Sorry Moonbeam but we can't have you hurting someone." said a sad Percy (Earth-1).
"You have to stay like that until you calm down, big sis." said an agreeing Apollo (Earth-1). However, Artemis (Earth-1) was shocked.
"You called me big sis?" asked a shocked Artemis (Earth-1) as her brother nodded and it makes her smile, "I've been waiting for you to call me that."
She got out of her ties but then just hugged her brother, making everyone go awe. However, she realizes she got free and smirks but the two boys put her back in, making her pout. They pet her to make her feel better, which worked.
(Then things got even stranger.)
"How strange?" said a confused Apollo (both worlds), Hermes (both worlds), and Artemis (Earth-1). Artemis (Earth-Prime) was shocked that her counterpart is talking with males.
(Mr. Brunner, who's been out in front of the museum a minute before, wheeled his chair into the doorway of the gallery, holding a pen in his hand.)
Artemis (Earth-1) and Zoe (Earth-1) gasp at this but sigh in relief.
("What ho, Percy!" he shouted, and tossed the pen through the air. Mrs. Dodds lunged at me. With a yelp, I dodged and felt talons slash the air next to my ear.)
Percy (both worlds) felt a silent piece of wind next to his ear but shrugged it off.
(I snatched the ballpoint pen out of the air, but when it hit my hand, it wasn't a pen anymore. It was a sword-Mr. Brunner's bronze sword, which he always used on tournament days.)
Then Percy (Earth-Prime) stands up and takes the weapon back from Zander. He then reveals the sword to everyone. His counterpart takes out a click pen and reveals as a sword too.
Chapter 3: Grover Loses His Pants
When the title was read, they gave looks to Grover (both worlds) but he was saved when Percy (Earth-Prime) told them to read while dreading because they're gonna know about his home life.
Artemis (Earth-1) and Apollo (Earth-1) scolds him for ditching Grover (Earth-Prime), who was also annoyed, but then they hear his reason and Grover (Earth-Prime) forgave him.
When Sally is mentioned, a lot of people say good things about her.
When they hear about a plane crash, Zeus (Earth-1) and the others glare at his counterpart for that, making the said god nervous and claims he didn't know.
When they get to the part about Gabe Ugliano, Percy (both worlds)'s love-interests and friends growl at the mention of that monster. They are asked about Gabe and it was explained.
"He is a horrid man with a horrid name. He is also Percy's first step dad. They hate each other and Percy has every right to hate him." said an angry Apollo (Earth-1).
"He is worst than Orion." said an agreeing Artemis (Earth-1).
When Gabe is described, everyone groaned in disgust.
"Try being near him." said an annoyed Percy (both worlds), Grover (Earth-Prime), Apollo (Earth-1), and Artemis (Earth-1).
When the house was described, everyone was disgusted at the man's dump of a place.
"I feel bad for you, young man. I really do." said a disgusted Aphrodite (Earth-1). She too loves the child and is worried about him.
When the book implied about Gabe threatening Percy, everyone gasped in horror at the thought of Percy (both worlds) being abused. Sally (Earth-1) was angry and looked at her son.
"Percy, did he abuse you?" asked a serious Sally (Earth-1).
Percy (Earth-1) was crying but nodded, angering everyone.
"I'll kill him." said an angry Zeus (Earth-1) then they see a portal and he travels to Gabe's home. He finds the heartless piece of shit and electrocutes his head until it explodes. Sure, he might not be any better but in his world, he doesn't approve of child abuse and doesn't like how a complete monster is hurting his nephew.
Back in the room, Percy (Earth-1) finally shows his scars. Artemis (Earth-1) sheds some tears while holding her hands to her mouth in horror. Apollo (Earth-1) nearly broke his bow in anger. Artemis (Earth-1) hugged the abused child and her brother joined in. Percy (Earth-Prime) explained his past.
"Yes, he did abuse me. When my mom married him and was working, he showed his true colors and hated me out of jealousy of being loved by her. He would yell at me and assault me. He even claimed that my mom should've drowned me as an infant. He has even tried to kill me but failed. One time, he picked up hookers and they forced me into a s*x film with them. He got so angry that he brutally beat me to the point of nearly being paralyzed but the water helped me recover. I wanted my mom to divorce him but she tried to reassure me that Gabe was only miserable. However, I actually get sad that she didn't do anything about the abuse. I wanted to call 911 but two of his poker buddies work for the police." said a crying Percy (Earth-Prime).
Luke went and hugged him while the others felt bad for not believing him.
"Why didn't you tell us? I would've helped you." said a sad Luke.
"I wanted to tell you but Thalia and the others didn't believe me. She even coldly shun me away and claimed that I lived a perfect life. She even claimed that I don't know what it's like." said an angry Percy (Earth-Prime).
- Percy (Earth-Prime)/Annabeth (Earth-Prime)/Luke (Earth-Prime)/Zoe (Earth-Prime)/Chris (Earth-Prime)/Clarisse (Earth-Prime)/Rachel (Earth-Prime)/Reyna (Earth-Prime) - 7 person harem.
- Logan/Lucy - Sibling relationship.
- Leo (Earth-Prime)/Piper (Earth-Prime) - After she breaks up with Jason (Earth-Prime).
- Percy (Earth-1)/Artemis (Earth-1)/Apollo (Earth-1) - The boy and the goddess like each other while her twin brother is the third wheel.
- I'm not sorry for how Zeus murdered Gabe. The latter got what he deserved for being a child abuser and heartless monster. Only cowards and bullies hurt children.
