The Mark of Athena, Chapter 2 II
After the ordeal with Terminus was over the four demigods began their descent into Camp Jupiter by rope ladder. Or at least Annabeth, Piper and Leo did, Jason was out of patience (which was saying a lot) so he just jumped and let the wind carry him down to his home. Annabeth got off the ladder, scanned the crowd from the new angle and found Percy again.
He was still with his new friends and she now noticed that he had a Roman tattoo on his forearm; it looked exactly like Jason's except it only featured one line and a trident where Jason's eagle was. He looked over and they locked eyes, she could see it, the look he a

“Reyna!” Jason said, giving her a quick, friendly, smile, “Of course I’ll go say hi to the others.”
“Who’s here from camp Jupiter?” Piper asked
“Including me,” Reyna seemed to run through a quick mental list, “Hazel, Frank, Dakota, Bobby and Gwen.”
Reyna looked in Leo’s direction, and her eyes popped. “Um… Leo, y

Leo had forgotten all about his best friend's birthday, probably the worst mistake he could have made.
He'd left Jason's gift back at the bunker; if he could go get it quickly
He heard a clanking whirring sound behind him and turned to find Buford just behind his cabin. A drawer popped open to reveal the gift.
"Dude," Leo said, "You are the best table in the history of furniture."

I don’t want a lot for Christmas,
There is just one thing I need…
Reyna had never been one for festivities in the past, but this year, she’d be spending Christmas with Leo.
She still had trouble processing the fact that not only had they made this work, they’d both loved every second of it. Sure it would be nice to live closer to each other but Reyna wouldn’t have it any other way so far and, she was confident, neither would Leo.
After they’d discovered their mutual feelings six months ago at Jason’s birthday celebration (or rather Bunker Nine and the nearest convenient beach), they’d started dating and she’d extended her stay at Camp Half Blood by about a week. After that, they visited each other regularly and she’d figured out just how awkward not planning your next Iris message ahead of time can be.

Leyna: The Double Date The Double DateLeyna: The Double Date11 months ago in Romance More Like This
Leo was in so much trouble. He and Reyna were supposed to be on a double date with Frank and Hazel, and he’d totally forgotten until roughly three hours ago, and even the Argo II had trouble getting him all the way to Camp Jupiter that fast.
He was hovering above the Little Tiber and was so desperate to get there in time, he jumped.
Stupid idea, stupid idea, STUPID IDEA! That was the phrase that kept running through Leo’s head in free fall. He lit up his whole body Human-Torch style and while he didn’t fly, as Jason had once speculated; his fall did slow down enough to afford him a relatively soft landing in the river.
Climbing out of the river Leo was glad he’d refined his fire starting skills to the point that he could now just make his skin really warm, which dried him and his clothes in time to arrive at the café only five minute

Groaning, Leo Valdez (yes, the Leo Valdez) sat up and decided whether to sleep again. He deserved sleep. He was insanely tired. Not only did he have to fly the Argo II back to Camp Half-Blood because the other Hephaestus kids wanted to have more space to store their giant robots, but he had a run-in with a pack of hellhounds who seemed keen to kill him. And no, offering them breath mints did not help.
And where were his teammates at that time, you ask? Probably shoving their tongues in each other's throats, that's where! The mental image made Leo shudder. He definitely did not want that stuck in his mind. It was already bad enough that Reyna wasn't here. I mean, Leo could understand. He really didn't want Octavian to be praetor for a week. I mean, he barely knew the Romans, but he was sure that nobody wanted that to happen.
He argued with Reyna that Jason tagged along with Piper and that Percy was bubbling with excitement to see Camp Half-Blood again, but she

Request: The Nightlight IncidentDrew muttered to herself as she marched from cabin to cabin. She blamed Piper for this. Well, she blamed Piper for everything, but this especially. Chiron had announced that an Aphrodite camper had to do inspection that week and dear Miss McLean had decided to take a vote as to who would be saddled with inspection duty. Drew was elected.Request: The Nightlight Incident1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
So she scowled at campers who failed to get their cabins in order in time, scribbled on her clipboard, gave the Athena cabin two out of five purely because Annabeth was dating Percy, and steered clear of Nico’s cabin altogether. He was at Camp Jupiter anyway.
When she got to Cabin Three, she knocked on the door—as was protocol— and barged in without waiting for an answer—as was her personal protocol. She had things to do anyway and this would only take a minute.
Surprisingly, Percy’s cabin was almost immaculate. Chiron had said it would take Percy some time to get used to things being so normal, so it
Request: Just to See You SmileNow that Piper had moved to Camp Jupiter with Jason and Leo had been promoted to ambassador, he found himself traveling between the two camps quite often. His new position was great, and New Rome was even better. Well, it had its ups and downs.Request: Just to See You Smile1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
The ups were pretty fantastic. Free access to the forges whenever he was in town (and the forges were pretty sweet), discounts on all the food and the merchandise, and he got to hang out with Hazel and Frank. He got to help design and oversee the building of the forts for the War Games. Not to mention, the girls were beautiful.
The downs? Well, none of those girls were really impressed with Leo's title of "Official Ambassador to Camp Jupiter and Supreme Commander of the Argo II." He had to sit in on the Senate meetings and actually pay attention, because they needed his vote. There was Octavian to contend with. The guy definitely had a few gears loose. Leo didn't get much time to spend with Piper and Jason, because they w

Today was perhaps as close to a perfect day as it could get. The sun was shining happily over Camp Jupiter, spoiling the earth with its blissful rays. The birds were chirping, singing their song of glee as the fountains dotted around refreshed the grass. The forum was bustling with activity, with campers making deals on wares or sipping cool ice tea with friends.
The Via Principia was almost left abandoned. Today was the day off the praetor had allowed it. Everyone was taking advantage of the great weather, having fun and generally goofing off.
Reyna let herself smile, as she sat up on top of the hill to observe the scene. Her camp it was a beautiful place. It was nice once in a while to appreciate this beauty. They weren't under attack, for one thing, and that was enough to make anyone pleased.
Just in the distance, she could see her mother's temple. It wasn't easy being daughter of the war goddess, and even harder being praetor.

It was in the middle of winter in Camp Jupiter, three weeks from Christmas. Snow covered the ground, and the Roman demigods (and the Greek ones, too, as they were visiting Camp Jupiter at this time of the year) were simply hanging out in New Rome, as it was in the weekends. They were either making snowmen, snowboarding, or any other activity that involved snow. Everyone except for Octavian and Leo.
As for Octavian, the teddy bear murderer I meant augur definitely despised the snow. He hated being in the cold weather, and Reyna had to smirk when she ordered him to 'have fun' in the snow. He was in one of Bombilo's coffee shops (you know, Bombilo the three-headed coffee merchant), drinking espresso and eating muffins, along with the others who were taking breaks from the snow.
But Leo was eating a snowcone with cherry syrup. Reyna mentally laughed. But, if she could, she would laugh out loud. But then, the demigods wo

Promises Percy was scared. Tartarus was worse than anything that he has ever faced. The minitaur might as well been a puppy, and Kronos, he was child's play in comparison. And what made it worse was that Annabeth was in constant danger. She had no means of protecting herself (she lost her dagger during the fall), and her broken ankle rendered her almost incapable of movement.Promises1 year ago in General Fiction More Like This
What Percy worried most about was losing Annabeth. He made sure he was always close to her, whether he was carrying her, or holding her hand. Percy knew that letting go would mean death, or worse, insanity, for Annabeth was what kept him going. And he never let go, he couldn't let go.
When they approached the doors, a rush of adrenaline came over Percy. They were almost out. He shared a smile with Annabeth, and pulled her close, "I will never let go," he promised.
Sally was anxious. First Percy was missing, and that broke her heart. Then, ei

Not that Leo had anything against his coffee- it tasted great. But it wasn't exactly his idea of one on one time.
The door swung open, and Leo was surprised to see Reyna enter the cafe, her dark hair swept back by the mid-autumn wind and her obsidian eyes troubled.
He hasn't talked to her much ever since before the quest even started, but he did come to some conclusions on her: She never laughed, she always looked miffed, and she seemed to bore into your soul whenever she looked at you.
Leo frowned as she took her drink and sat at a small, secluded table in the corner. She looked so sad and drained, staring at her recyclabl

Leo was devastated. Today was his and Reyna's anniversary, and he only remembered it because Piper had said so. Reyna, being the nice and orderly girl that she was, probably had the gift. Heck, she probably would have prepared the nice gift a month ago. It would've almost consisted of fireworks even better that the Fourth of July fireworks in Camp Half-Blood, pizza, and Octavian with a Pillow Pet prophesying that they would live a happy life together. (Which they will!) Yeah, that would be the perfect anniversary.
He was pacing back and forth in the forges. He wished he had his tool belt, but alas. He had given it up for a dare from the Stolls. Damn those Stolls. They make really awesome dares.
The Charm of Leo ValdezThe Charm of Leo ValdezThe Charm of Leo Valdez2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Leo always found himself attracted to the same type of girl: hot, strong, and completely out of his league. He knew it. His friends knew it. Even the people who didn't know him all that well knew that he tended to crush on girls that were way above him. It was just one of those things people knew about him. So, of course, no one was surprised that, when they reached Camp Jupiter, Leo set his eyes on the camp's praetor, Reyna. She fit his type exactly; a strong, beautiful young woman with a position of power that made her completely out of reach to the mechanic son of Hephaestus.
What did come to surprise so many of the group from Camp Half-Blood was when Reyna, for all her rather solitary, serious nature, seemed to show an interest in the Greek demigod. It particularly caught Jason off-guard, knowing Reyna from the memories that were returning to him. From what he remembered of the daughter of Bellona, Leo was as far from her own t

"Hey, Clarisse? What do you want for Christmas?" Chris piped up as his girlfriend threw javelins across the waters of the beach, probably killing unlucky sea creatures every once in a while. It was a wonder the beach wasn't frozen. Snow covered the ground of Camp Half-Blood. She did promise to rid the beach of sea monsters so unlucky campers won't have to worry about sea monsters biting at their ankles in their free time, although she didn't know who'd want to be swimming in a beach in wintertime.

“I hardly think this is my fault, brother.”
“My son, my only son is in Tartarus and yet you insist that we sit here and do nothing?”
For once, Zeus was being the rational one. “There isn’t much we can do.”
Thunder rumbled outside.
“No need to get testy, Poseidon.”
The thunder rumbled even louder, shaking the massive windows of the throne room. “How dare you… treat this like it isn’t even an issue! How would you feel if Thalia were there? How do you think Athena must be feeling?”
Lightning flashed in Zeus’s eyes. He grit his teeth. “Athena… is not in her right mind at the moment. And don’t you bring my daughter into this. If you ask
