Mark of Athena Chapter 5It wasn't as though Annabeth hadn't met gods before; she'd talked to a great many thanks to Percy. She'd gotten fast food from Ares, visited mount Olympus during the counsel of the gods, had the goddess of wisdom as her mother, and Lady Artemis herself had wanted her to join the Hunters. Heck, she was even the main architect for Olympus after the war and the most powerful goddess hated her, not that she was complaining. It wasn't that Faunus was a satyr, either; one of her best friends was half goat and who was she to judge?Mark of Athena Chapter 53 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
It was the fact that Faunus wasn't supposed to be alive that her fingers lingered on her dagger.
"You can't be Faunus." Annabeth whispered, her voice a little stronger than before. "There's no way, because Faunus is -"
"Pan's counterpart and he's gone?" The satyr chuckled, a deep and earthy sound that reminded her of the way her dad used to laugh when they first started getting along. "Come, child, allow me to enlighten you." He turned and began in the other direct

Scout wasn't sure how to react. There he was, pinned up against the wall of the infirmary -without a shirt- by the Sniper and accused of being attracted to the new BLU Spy due to no record of either one killing the other over the months. The next thing Scout knew, the Sniper was...kissing him! Which was bad!
At first, Scout just froze, trying to piece together how he got into this situation in the first place. It had to be the fact that he wasn't wearing a shirt, the smell of sweat and testosterone must've messed up Sniper's mind and turned him on- and made him gay.
Actually, that was a pretty dumb idea now that Scout thought about it.
He began to panic and switch back to reality when he felt Sniper's calloused hands on his stomach, slowly gliding up towards his chest as he tried probing his tongue into Scout's mouth.
Oh, hell no!
By reflex, Scout's free hand felt around the Medic's desk. He took hold of the first object he could get his
One Strike And Your OutThe general rule of thumb for this world is this:One Strike And Your Out3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"The older you are, the wiser you are and the more respected you are."
Truth be told I think that's a load of bullshit.
Here respect isn't earned for how old you are. Here respect is earned for your skills
This place makes the years pile on. Although I might not show it often, anyone here will tell you that I'm wise beyond my own age.
War is no place for a child, I don't know why they say things like that to me, Im not a child.
I am a man.
I am a part of a higher plan. Without my efforts my teams persistence in battle would count for nothing.
I am healthy and fast. My youth is vital to me and because of it I am light on my feet.
Because I am younger than my team mates would have people believe I am naïve, blind to war.
These same people who doubt me forget that I am, to put it bluntly, a murderer.
Every new war I find sweet solace in compacting the features of the opposing side with nothing more than a blunt piece of wood.

The Spycrab rested himself on the Scout's desk, finding it to be the safest place in the Scout's room. Keeping him protected from the possibility of being stepped on by the other REDs, who occasionally burst in unannounced. Or even from being crushed from the Scout himself when he would return from a battle and just flop down on his bed...while the Spycrab would rest there as well. While on the desk, he was safe.
The Scout had yet to unpack, his room remained cluttered with boxes. Judging by the state of the Scout's workspace back in 2fort, it probably would not be long before the risk of paper avalanches would make the desk too hazardous for the Spycrab to traverse. He had himself wrapped in the BLU Scout's scarf, although he honestly preferred the RED Scout's scarf due to the fact that particular scarf still had the Bostonian's scent on it. He didn't want to hurt the BLU Scout's feelings, so he chose to bundle up with it to keep warm

The gardens of the royal palace were first built some 300 years ago, under the order of King Cocoon. They were a gift for his new wife, the beautiful Queen Consort, Vespa, who he knew adored flowers, especially those of the rare calibre. The new gardens became home to the kingdom’s prettiest and rarest plant life, all for the queen and her family’s eyes alone. As years passed, they took on the characteristics of the more traditional styles of Changeling gardens, and eventually divided up into a large modern ornate complex to accommodate them. Today, few creatures outside the palace have seen such an awe-inspiring pocket of the world for themselves.
“Stay on my back, Princess,” Cerci told her as they trekked their way down the garden path which had been covered in a blanket of freshly fallen snow. A nasty chill was in the air, turning the koi ponds’ surfaces into solid ice. The nanny wore several layers (with a satchel

My face flushed in a deep red glow. My eyes a bit wide wondering if I heard the whisper right. "You're just so cute when your being serious." he chuckled. I froze my jaw agape and my face now buried deep in the dark red glow that hung still on my face. "I-I am not..." I looked away. 'H-He thought I was cute...'

The Scout groaned as he opened his eyes, only to shut them again when he made eye contract with the florescent lights from above. He let out a loud sigh, a little angry at himself for passing out from exhaustion in the RED Spy's arms. How embarrassing, and slightly gay. Kind of.
"Oh, you are...awake." said a nervous voice.
It didn't take Scout long to realize he was place halfway on a hospital bed with his legs dangling over the edge. Along with the excruciating pain when he felt cold metal prodding inside his bullet wound. Was he dreaming again? The sudden wave of pain answered his question quickly.
"AH SHIT!!" Scout screamed, about to sit up, only to have his shoulders grabbed and pulled back down on the bed.

Despite it being in the middle of the night, Scout opted to fill the tub up with hot water so he and the Spycrab can catch up and wash themselves. The Spycrab sat on the top of Scout's knee and started things off, mostly with what he learned about his replacement that could help Scout in the future.
Scout listened as he washed himself with the bar of soap, nodding occasionally with what the cursed Spy was telling him. The new Spy's fear of crabs - mostly talking crabs- made the young RED laugh, not as hard as he did when learning that his nemesis was a virgin - like him- but it was still hilarious. The crab continued, talking about the mishap on the field; The Announcer's calls and colliding missiles from the Soldiers that resulted in half the field being wiped out. The two debated about what happened. They both agreed in the end that is was probably just a communication error, hopefully something that would be fixed and the injured mercenaries

His Favorite Kind of Day This was Percy’s favorite kind of day. It was the beginning of summer, the sun was warm and blindingly bright, and he’d just arrived at camp a few days ago. He’d spent the morning training with some new campers, which was always a favorite activity of his. (Annabeth claimed it was because he loved to show off. She was probably right.) After that, he threatened to throw his girlfriend into the lake fully clothed if she didn’t take a break from her plans for Olympus right now and go swimming with him. She finally consented.

I always knew there was something different about her. I just didn't know how different. I was never expecting the mess that I was about to get myself into.
She showed up about three months ago, a lonely girl with no memory. She didn't look like much, just a girl on the streets, living off what she could. When she showed up at the Brooklyn house, her jeans were in tatters and her shirt a mess. She had no shoes and she was stick-thin. When she'd seen me coming out, she had ran to me, showing me an amulet around her neck-the symbol of Isis.
She'd said that she'd gotten our message and came, she said she would've been here faster if the monsters hadn't been following her, trying to get her. She had outrun them long enough for her to find twin bracelets. She said that she'd felt drawn to them, that she found them by fate. She had put them on, and they entwined around her hands. Later, when she met a monster, she clicked the gems together and they had turned into silver daggers

The white quilt that was wrapped loosely around my body was soaked in the scarlet liquid. I had a battle with my endurance; I tested how much blood a person needed before unconsciousness took over. My serrated, swollen were wounds crossed with black and blue blemishes, each one telling a short story of how they happened in almost an instant without mercy. I gritted my teeth and forcefully shook my head side to side, prolonging my knock out that should have been executed hours ago.
Seeking comfort, I brought my sore legs up to my stomach, curling myself into a frail cocoon position. The pain that existed through my veins never ceased; it felt like my blood was replaced with crippling poison. My heart thumped my chest, wanting and longing for a break from the mixture of lingering adrenaline and hatred. I felt broken, yet I resisted. The smell of iron loitered in my nostrils and a putrid taste of phlegm bleached my throat. Every night after training, I w
