Percy paused in the process of capping his sword. For the past few minutes, he had been amusing himself by uncapping his pen, letting the ball-point tip transform into his bronze-bladed sword, Riptide. Then he would recap it and watch the blade shrink back down. And then he would repeat. Over and over again. Annabeth thought she was going to go mad if she had to hear the ring of the metal and the click of the cap one more time.
Percy gave her a sheepish look and placed his pen-sword in the front pocket of his jeans. "Sorry," he said, unconvincingly.
Annabeth rolled her eyes and went back to staring with increasing frustration at the architectural designs laid out messily in front of her. She was attempting to get some work done on the reconstruction of Olympus, but so far it wasn't working out too well; the side notes and calculations had started floating off the page and twisting themselves
A Little Unexpected - Chapter 1"Yes!" I breathe as I walk through the school gates for the last time in the next 6 weeks. 6 weeks of freedom, no school, no homework, no bullies, just recess. Pulling my bag straps into a more comfortable position, I begin the journey across town to my house, humming gently to myself as I walk; the sun beating down its summer rays upon me. As I walk, I spot the girl of my dreams, Sasha, walking along the pavement in front of me, her hips swaying slightly as she goes. I can't help but admire how her black form-fitting denim shorts and Nirvana t-shirt complement her body. I guess it's a shame she's into bad boys, and I'm more the kid that gets bullied by the bad boys. Nevertheless, I can still dream…A Little Unexpected - Chapter 12 years ago in Profiles More Like This
"Hey Tom!" calls the voice of my best friend, Mike, breaking me from my daydream. Turning around, I see the 5'7'' slightly-athletic build of my best friend. In comparison, my 5'5'' scrawny build is no match, which makes me wonder for every moment I am with him, why he chose to be friends wi
That Tone"Percy!"That Tone2 years ago in Sketches More Like This
I froze in my path. Usually, when Annabeth uses that tone with me, it means I did something wrong. And now that I'm her boyfriend, it always made me extra nervous; desperate to find an excuse to whatever it was that I did.
I saw Annabeth's dagger before I saw her. She held it in her hand as she marched towards me, her blonde curls pulled back messily into a high ponytail. I was tempted to turn and run towards the lake and risk the chance of her stabbing me in the back (figures she would be the one person who knew where my Achilles Heel is). Or maybe I could just whistle and hope that Blackjack came fast enough for me to hightail (excuse the pun) it out of there…She came closer to where I was standing and I unfroze. I didn't run, just barely keeping myself in check. Instead, I slid an easy smile onto my face and greeted my not-so-friendly-looking demigod girlfriend.
"Hey there…Annabeth," I said, wincing at the pitiful sound of my own voice.

She couldn't stop thinking about him.
He was probably so lonely out there, all on his own, with no one but strangers to see to his needs.
He probably doesn't even remember me, she thought despairingly. He probably has no recollection of the numerous quests they have gone on together; the many times they've saved the world from the demons and titans hidden from the common mortal's view.
It had been a normal camp night; they had trained in the sword arena, they had eaten lunch and gave offerings to the Gods, they had sat beside the bonfire amongst all the other campers.
But everything that she knew to be normal was suddenly ripped away from her.
Apparently, one of the gods (Hera that insolent little cow-pie) had kidnapped him in the middle of the night

Artemis was just about to get up from the couch and go home for the night when M’gann flew up excitedly, cape billowing behind her levitating body. “Artemis! Would you like to have a sleepover, just for the night? It’s a weekend tomorrow and no missions, so I thought you might want to.” M’gann’s expression said she very much wanted to have a sleepover, but would be empathetic if Artemis refused. “Er.. I don’t have any of my stuff..” Artemis was on the edge. She wanted to go home and sleep in her bed, but it might be fun to stay. “But you do! Every team member had two sets of overnight equipment stashed at the cave, don’t you remember?” M’gann had said the truth. Now that Artemis thought about it, she realized she would be perfectly fine for a night. She smiled widely. “Okay, M’gann. I

Fear...fear wasn't much of a factor for Chris Redfield. He prided himself on his courage. It has not only saved his life, but his comrades' lives in the past as well. A beneficial factor. As fate would have declared it.. however, fear for the first time had entered his mind on July 24th: The Spencer Mansion incident. A feared day for the remaining S.T.A.R.S.
He had spent the majority of his time there in the mansion wandering, looking for something that wasn't trying to kill him at any opportunity they got; more specifically his team mates. They all had disappeared. He wanted his entire team to be safe, sure! Barry was a treasured family friend, Rebecca had proven useful and a trustworthy new friend...But in the back of his mind he was looking for one specific team mate: Jill Valentine. To him, Jill was not just a friend, not just a co-worker.

In front of her was the one whom she hated most, her father Sportsmaster. He held a crowbar and stood watching his own daughter suffer in his own hands.

Suddenly, the pain came back. Hit after hit, pain turned into numbness. Sportsmaster laughed and said, "Well, now that my w

This was too much to take in at the time. We were standing in front of the Olympian counsel. "Mother!" Annabeth yelled. My dad, Poseidon, had nothing to say. For he was speechless too. On impulse I grabbed Annabeth and kissed her. Athena glared at us in disgust and waved her hand. We started to drift apart. "No! Annabeth, I love you!" I yelled. We started getting farther apart. We tried to reach to each other but it was no use. "Percy I love you-" she got cut off because we disappeared completely. I was transported to a place. It looked like a house but smaller. Like a Collage dorm with two rooms. The walls were Painted Sea blue and there was a bed in the center of the room.

Annabeth's leg felt like it was pulling free of her body. Pain washed everything in red. The force of the Underworld tugged at her like dark gravity. She didn't have the strength to fight. She knew she was too far down to be saved.
"Percy, let me go," she croaked. "You can't pull me up."
His face was white with effort. She could see in his eyes that he knew it was hopeless.

"What?" I demanded, my tone irate. He started cracking up, and I realized I had knocked over his diet soda onto the blanket he was sitting on. Of course, the liquid parted an inch or so around him, but left the rest of the soft material soaked. Sighing, I shooed him off and carried it out to the creek that ran through camp, that was only a few minutes away walking from the area we had been in. Kneeling next to it I began washing out the soda stains, annoyed we couldn't have a simple date by ourselves. I heard Percy come up from behind me, his footing and mood light.
"Honestly, Wise Girl, you don't need to do that." it was my blanket.
"Yes, Percy, I do." I informed him in a clipped tone.

Trunk Full of Rings - Prologue part 1Finally I had finished unpacking. I look around the room, glad to finally be properly settled in my new house. I had moved from my city-centre apartment to this beautiful English countryside cottage, a large cottage at that in the shape of an 'L'. The previous owner had recently passed away, and they had no descendants, leaving the house without an official owner. Eager to get away from the loud polluted city centre (I'm not much of a city person, but my job is in the city and until recently I didn't have a car, leaving me without much choice), I bought the place.Trunk Full of Rings - Prologue part 13 years ago in Profiles More Like This

All he could feel was a strange mixture intense pain and pleasure, flooding throughout his entire body. The skin on his face was tightening as it remoulded, forming a much softer facial shape. As this happened the little hair he had on his body ripped itself out of his skin, falling to the floor. But Steven didn't care about this at the moment, right now all he could feel was the severe pulling sensation on the top of his head. It was one or two minutes before this sensation ended.

I also write this for two of my reviewers, Maesde and Dragonball256, who requested a jealousy, love-triangle type story between Eren, Mikasa, and Annie. This story takes place during their trainee days with the rest of the 104th Corps. It is also my take on how Eren and Mikasa finally admit that they are indeed attracted to each other so enjoy and please review!

As soon as he was on his back, the blonde girl sat on top of him, her icy-blue eyes glinting triumphantly even though not a hint of emotion betrayed her delicate features. It took all of Mikasa's willpower not to scream at Annie to get the hell off of Eren since she knew such an outburst would create an awkward situation with so many members of their squad watching. She also felt that something wasn't right since this must be the hu

These shapely women were cloned only using the best physical genes gathered by F.R.O.G.'s top researchers and scientists. However, they have been infused with both frog and fish DNA. That means these clones have the ability to breathe through both fresh and salty bodies of water through their gills behind their ears. However, F.R.O.G.'s main goal is to use these clones to take over the ocean oil companies, and sell the crude oil at inflated prices to the highest bidder. These "Frogwomen" as nicknamed are mass-produced and very expendable and extremely loyal. They also only have a month's worth of life. When they die, their corpses are then recycled to produce more clones. The researchers are still trying to improve the duration, but mixing human DNA with multiple animals is tricky. Another feature is that these clones have human emotions and thoughts, and can function in normal society. But if an individual clone thinks of betraying the organization, their life is forfeit. The

This is a story of how Byakuye is moved to a parallel universe to the one he was created in.

He was created to kill Vion to give him a further advantage he was exposed to something called the "Fiend's arc". A strange system to give human the power of fiends.
