If you thought the Minotaur was dispelled (after Percy killed it, of course) for a hundred years or so, think again.
Nico didn't want to be in trouble today, but here he was. In the Principal's office, twiddling nervously with his thumbs. After the principal wrote something on a sheet of paper ,Nico didn't seem to understand (because the new principal's handwriting was awful) and just looked at Mr. Hawkins. Mr. Hawkins face was pasted with an unpleasant smile Nico had never seen before.
"Mr. Di Angelo." He said.
"Yes...sir?" Nico asked anxiously.
"I'm afraid that you are expelled from this school." The principal said bluntly. Nico wasn't surprised.
"But don't worry Mr. Di Angelo." He continued. "You may have summer classes here for free. If you do well, then I MIGHT accept you for the school's university next year." Nico took some time to process what the 61 year-old principal was saying.
He thought about Camp Half-Blood first. H

Ash tied my wrists together in an unbreakable knot using the tie from my robe. He tugged on the back of it experimentally, as if he was testing the strength of the knot. I wriggled my wrists around in vain, realising the knot was far too advanced for me to be even bothered about, Ash must be a master in all things knot-wise. He grinned in satisfaction and led me over to the sofa, pushing me down onto it. He sat opposite me, perched casually on the side of the coffee table.
He crossed one leg over the other and leaned towards me. "I take it you read my proposition then?"
I shuffled into a more comfortable position, plus one that didn't allow Ash to sneakily see up my robe. "Yes I did and I have no intention of pursuing it,"
Ash grinned slyly and tossed his mane of hair behind his shoulders. "And why not exactly?"
"B-Because it's degrading and...we barely know each other...your my employer for Christ sake!"
"We can get to know each other, my way,"

Three months. That was how long Nico had been out on the streets after his family kicked him out. His father hadn't about to tolerate a "queer" living under his roof. The man had never been loving, anyways. The bruises that had faded were proof of that. His stomach growled for what seemed like the hundredth time in the past hour. Nico hadn't eaten anything in almost a week. His body was shaking from his lack of sleep, just wanting to collapse wherever he might lie. Most nights he sat in dark alleyways, crying and flinching anytime a noise was heard nearby.
He would have rather been miserable lying to his family than being out here alone. Other homeless people were not friendly. He couldn't go to them, asking for food or shelter. He stayed away from them at all costs, to prevent being rolled for the clothes on his back.
The streets of L.A. were now his home. How was he supposed to survive in such a place? Gangs, rapists, drug dealers, the possibilities of getting killed were e

Ashley kicked the door to my room open, still carrying me, and dropped me onto my small single bed. Fortunately the lights were off so I couldn't see his face but I could feel him, feel the heat radiating from his palms through the skimpy fabric of the robe I still, frustratingly, had on. Those hands wandered down my sides until they reached my knees, pushing them up then spreading my legs wide.
The bed dipped as he crawled onto it, bracing himself over me, then taking my lips in a kiss. I shifted around underneath him, trying to at least loosen the knot that held my hands prisoner but to no avail. I moaned a little as he bit at my lip ring, asking for entry which I gladly gave him, our tongues colliding together until I was gasping for breath. Ash chuckled and moved off me a little, suddenly the whole room was illuminated with light, he had turned the light switch on.
He grinned at my shocked expression then sat up on his knees, tugging me up by my arms and delicately gui

"Now you have my mobile number don't you?"
I smiled as my room mate and best friend, Christian Coma asked me the same question that he had done about less then five minutes ago. Christian was an insanely huge panickier, especially about the safety and welfare of yours truly, but that's what made me love him immensely so.
"Yes Chuppy, For the thousandth time," I chucked and punched him playfully on the arm.
He grinned at me, his hundred megawatt smile. "I know, I just get so-"
"Panicked? Terrified? Scared?" I teased, arching one plucked eyebrow at him.
He laughed, a great booming sound which echoed off the metal walls of the elevator. "Precisely,"
The elevator came to a smooth stop and the doors slid open to reveal a new Manhattan morning. We stepped out in sync and Christian automatically gripped my upper arm in his hand, I rolled my eyes fondly at his over protective gesture and let him lead me to the double doors which was the entrance to the block of f
The Boundaries of DeathNico was alone. Alone in his cabin. Alone at his table. Even in his classes and activities he was normally alone. Most everyone was terrified of him, but he didn't mind. It was easier that way, less questions asked. No one cared if he left, and no one was ever surprised if he was gone for weeks at a time. He doubted they even cared.The Boundaries of Death4 years ago in Drama More Like This
Nico was still roaming the camp late one night. It was passed curfew, but even the harpies left him alone. They had seen what he could do, and they didn't want that. He was looking at the stars, wondering if the gods were watching him, when he saw him. A tall, pale man with dark eyes and straight black hair was leaning against one of the columns of the Hades cabin- his cabin. But the man had as much claim to the cabin as Nico did, maybe more. It was Hades, wearing an expensive looking grey suit and his usual grim expression.
"Father." Nico said, bowing. He eyed the god, taking in the skull ring on his finger that was so much like his own. He wondered if thi

Nico stared over at his alarm clock. It was a little after ten, and Nico knew he needed to be getting up. He groaned and ran his hand under the covers, adjusting himself in his boxers. It was beginning to become a common occurrence for him to dream of his boss as he had last night, and it was really becoming frustrating. Why couldn't Percy just have sex with him? Maybe he should go to one of the Lost Boys.
Nico sighed and swung his legs off the bed. He sat up and ran a hand through his messy hair. While he did admit that the Lost Boys were very attractive, he really wanted his first time to be with Percy. The problem was that Percy was being extremely stubborn in helping him out with that.
Nico stepped out of his bedroom to fix some cereal. It was a little past breakfast time, but he really didn't care. With these late nights, he took his food and sleep whenever he could get them. He reached up into the cabinet and pulled a bowl out. He grabbed his favorite box of cereal and

Nico groaned as he dragged himself out of bed. The banging on the door was going to give him a headache. He flung the door open to glare at the offender. Connor grinned back at him from the other side of the doorway. Nico groaned. “How are all of you morning people?” Nico mumbled, running a hand through his morning hair.
Connor pouted as he followed Nico into his suite. “We aren't, we just know how to put on appearances,” he explained. “You should see Travis and I when we get out of bed, it's like a zombie apocalypse started.”
Nico giggled. “Do you have to go bang on his door too?” He walked into his bedroom, Travis following behind him. He went through his closet, picking out clothes for the day.
Connor grinned. “No, all I have to do is roll over to see what he looks like in the morning.”
Nico froze in place, his eyes having widened from the statement. “You sleep in the same bed?” Nico asked.

Nico frowned down at his phone for the tenth time since Percy's text had come in half an hour ago. Apparently, his boss had something important he needed to ask Nico, and wanted him to come up to his suite. So, Nico now stood on an elevator as it rose to Percy's private floor. When the elevator finally came to a stop, Nico stepped off and turned down the right hall.
He knocked on Percy's door and waited for the green-eyed young man to come to the door. He slid his phone into his pocket as the door opened. He looked up and his eyes widened at the sight before him.
Apollo stood in front of him, soaking wet and clad only in a black towel. The blond had a second towel resting on his dripping wet curls as he stared down at Nico. One of Apollo's eyebrows rose at him as he raised his hands to dry his hair off.
“Um, Percy wanted to see me,” Nico said.
Apollo nodded. “He's still in the shower, but he should be about done,” he replied.

It was around ten when the elevator dinged again. Nico looked up as he placed the last chair on the floor. A girl and two guys exited the elevator. The boys looked completely identical, the only difference being one being a mere inch taller. They had curly brown hair that hung down into their brown eyes. They wore identical mischievous smiles. If they had been on the streets, Nico would have guessed that they were pickpockets. The girl had shoulder length brown hair. She was dark skinned, possibly of Native American descent. She was a head shorter than the two boys next to her. Her eyes were a deep hazel like color, Nico wasn't sure if her eyes were brown or green. They were very pretty, though.
The twins said something and made the girl laugh as they set their things down at the bar. The shorter twin nudged his brother, having noticed Nico. The taller one looked down and the shorter one jutted his chin out in Nico's direction. Now all eyes were on Nico, making him fidget und

A Percy/Nico One-Shot
Percy Jackson was determined to break the ice between Nico di Angelo and himself. It wasn't that there was much between the two sons of the Big Three to break, but it was perhaps the hardest obstacle between them that the son of Poseidon needed to get through. Percy had been trying, for a long time, to melt the ice around Nico's heart, to get the younger demigod to finally warm back up to him.
Though Nico was no longer angry with Percy for Bianca's death and had even become a friend to him, the son of Hades was still quite distant with him. Annabeth and Grover had told him that the younger demigod was like that with everyone and, to an extent, that was true; Nico kept to himself for the most part, choosing only a select few to socialize with - if one could consider Nico's presence, quiet nods and blunt input as socializing.
Percy knew that, despite his friends' reassurance, Nico shielded himself from him in particular. He'd seen how Nico ac

Thalia ushered Nico into the gym, smiling at the Lost Boys. "He's all yours, boys. Just make sure he's down for his appointment on time," Thalia called before she shut the door. Nico's shoulders slumped as he made his way to the center of the room. Apollo came up behind him and ushered him to the center of the boys, who were all standing in front of the mirror.
Apollo gave Nico's shoulders a squeeze before taking his place next to Nico. "Alright, Nico, this will be your final lesson before you work upstairs tomorrow. We'll all be too busy preparing and everything tomorrow to have a lesson, so we need to cover more on your behavior today," the blond informed him.
"After that, we'll cover more on stripping, since you have to be perfect before next weekend," Luke added. Nico nodded his head. Luke rubbed at his face with a sigh. "Alright, we've covered the basics with you, today we need for you to show us what you've learned."

Nico slid into the passenger seat when Apollo pulled up to the curb. The blonde had changed clothes, and he now wore a sleeveless white shirt and some green track shorts that showed off his long legs. "Have a good day?" Apollo asked as they pulled back on to the street. Nico just shrugged, looking out the window. His day had been rough, to say the least. He was the new kid. He hadn't made any friends. In fact he had done the opposite. Apparently, one of the kids had deemed him bullyable material. He had gotten shoved into the lockers twice. He also didn't like having to come in and have to catch up on so much work. Why couldn't Percy just let him stay out of school?
Apollo seemed to notice his sour mood and patted his leg. "How do we find out who we're on shift with?" Nico mumbled, still looking out the window.
Apollo frowned at him. "Leo should have set you up with a hotel email. You should have gotten an email letting you know. Check your phone." Nico slipped his phone out

“So, how was the lesson with Apollo?” Will asked with a grin, Connor snickering behind the blond. Nico groaned and buried his face in his hands. Did they have to share everything? Will chuckled and sat down next to Nico on the couch, slinging an arm around Piper on his other side. It was about time to start another night, and the floor workers were all gathered in the bar room. Surprisingly, Dionysus had been completely quiet. The only thing Nico really noticed, though, was the way Annabeth would glare at Dionysus anytime the man was about to speak.
“It was fine,” Nico mumbled into his palm.
“Really? Nothing revealing happened?” Hazel teased.
Nico sighed and let his head fall back on the couch. “I figured you would have let him take you on the couch, with the way you ogle him,” added Piper with a grin.

He glances to my reflection in the mirror and I shake my head, “They are very territorial. When two males fight over their land they fight to the death. If the reigning lion wins then all carries on as normal. Do you know what happens if he loses and the winner takes over?” I shake my trembling head again. “The winner kills all the other’s remaining cubs. He removes any trace of the lion that was before, and he rules the pride from then on.” He gazes at me steadily but I say nothing, “So you see, what I’m saying is that it’s nothing personal, what’s happened to you.”

He let Kristy's lifeless body pull him to the floor. The knife stuck out of his chest but he tried not to look. The pain was so powerful that it almost felt numb. His eyesight went blurry. From somewhere nearby he could hear police officers shouting and giving orders. Someone laid their hands on him, they felt for his pulse. Their fingers pressed against Kristy's poisonous bite. His breath was stalling. It grew less and less. It was just as Kristy described. The loss of his breath made him feel lightheaded. Anything he could see was in slow motion.
He rested his head on the floor, and gazed directly into her eyes. They twinkled in one last sign of recognition, and then they emptied altogether. He glanced to the disco lights. He'd never realised how pretty the colours were when they danced like that.
His blood was pooling on the floor. His blood. No one else's. Life was escaping him.

I loosened my tie and climbed out my car, locking it then jogging up the steps that lead to the apartment that I shared with my recent boyfriend, Andy.
Andy was undoubtedly the best boyfriend I had ever had, beautiful, talented, funny the list was endless.

After a few months of knowing each other, and sneaking around behind our band members backs, we had decided to move in with each other.

Annabeth had no idea what holiday they were celebrating. Though she had read up on holidays and festivals of the Romans while she'd been studying to prepare herself for her stay with the Romans after the camps had united, the citizens of New Rome and members of Camp Jupiter had been adding new traditions to their holidays for decades, so much that almost none of the holidays were like anything that the daughter of Athena had read about. All she knew was that Reyna had just handed her a beautiful dress and told her to put it on.
"What, are we going to the prom?" Annabeth asked, looking lost.
"That's not until May," Reyna told her. "Go put it on. I'll help you with the zipper." She gestured to the bedroom of her praetor's house. "What did you expect to wear to the dance?"

It started with their break-up. Things had been tense between Nico and Percy for weeks. They'd been arguing left and right, yelling at each other in English and ancient Greek (and Italian, on Nico's part), and had even come down to bringing out their swords. The fight ended with the two of them refusing to speak to each other for a week, Nico not even showing up within 100 feet of anywhere Percy was and Percy barely sparing the son of Hades a glance when Nico was around.
It was driving their friends crazy. None of them had any clue what had happened between the two of them. Annabeth said that Percy hadn't told her anything, Travis and Connor had heard nothing from Nico, Rachel knew nothing either, having not foreseen this as the Oracle host. Whenever anyone tried to ask what was wrong, all they got was a glare or an indignant "nothing!" from whichever demigod they tried to ask.

There was something to be said about having someone sleeping next to you. They could be a source of warmth in the middle of the night when the blankets had been kicked to the foot of the bed because you kind of had that habit. In the middle of the night, maybe it helped to just listen to the sound of their breath as they slept, a little reminder that you weren't alone in the dark. Maybe, in Luke's case, they were there to calm you down after a nightmare that gripped you tight and refused to let go.
Percy was always there when Luke shot upright, a cold, cruel voice echoing in his mind and gold eyes shining in the blackness around him. While Luke's chest heaved, lungs burning and heart racing, Percy's arms were wrapped around him, holding him close, soft whispers reminding the older demigod that it was over. Kronos was defeated long ago, the Titan dispersed into so many pieces that it would take an eternity for him to return; there

Kristy Killings and Jeremy Thirteen had always been close, ever since Kristy had wandered over to him in Kindergarden one day while he was digging in the sandpit. She smacked him over the head with a plastic sword, and demanded he play 'Dead'. Most kids, had they been treated like this, would probably have cried. Some might even have tried to hit her back, although not the boys for fear that she actually might win. So imagine the surprise of the minders when he simply rolled over, into the hole that he'd been digging, and let her 'stab' his side. When finally she was satisfied that he was dead enough, she pulled him back up again, and he followed her around the playroom like a little shadow.
From that moment it was as though their fate had been set. Their parents said it was most definitely love.

An hour later and Jeremy was still sat in the shower, though it had been turned off. The blood had rinsed away and left his white skin clean. He sat on the damp floor with his head leaning against the wall. His eyes gazed into blank space. He was soaked from head to toe. His hair hung down like a dripping black curtain, obscuring one of his eyes completely. Goose pimples ran all the way up his body. He'd pulled down his t-shirt sleeves over his hands to try and warm them but it wasn't working. His skin looked more ill that it ever had done before. He though it was turning blue.

She listened to Jeremy's shaky breathing. It held a magic fascinati

No one remembers the moment they are born. When their eyes are new, they cannot see; all they understand are blurred faces and blank ceilings. Anything could happen, and they wouldn't have a clue. They are a pure, blank canvas.
I don't remember being born, or the crash landing, but I've been told that when I was a very small child, I fell to Earth in a hail of stars. I landed in and amongst the fragile forest trees, flattening them into a giant crater. The leaves were burning. I was alone, at first. Then figures appeared from between the trees all dressed in white. I was frightened, but I didn't run. There was nothing I knew here; I was a blank canvas. I was theirs.
They picked me up out of the dust and blackened ash, and took me to their home; a city built up onto a great mountain. Covering the mountain's sides, all the buildings were white-washed palaces, and crowning them was a sprawling fortress, a temple. They called this place Heaven.

At 6pm Kristy stood at the edge of her garden. It wasn't quite spring yet; it was still getting dark early. The sky was a deep blue and the stars only just beginning to twinkle. There was no street light immediately in front of her house so she was waiting in darkness. It was Valentine's and she was ready. She'd dyed her hair freshly black and a rhinestone tiara glittered between the locks as she turned her head. She wore a white, 1950s inspired dress that reached her knees. It was printed with a design of big red apples. She wore a scarlet petticoat underneath. With cherry painted heels she was completed. Now all she needed was her Date.
She hadn't told anyone how much she was looking forward to this night. She'd harboured the feeling for months but not spoken a word.
