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,"

He returned to his corner, and traced pictures on the floor with his finger. Kayla was across the room. Occasionally her and her friends would look over at him and whisper. It was over two hours later when she lowered herself enough to approach him. One of a group of Goth kids had taken pity on him and he was now sitting on the stalls at the outer edge of their conversation.
"You." She snapped. He glared. "I want to dance."
Jeremy folded his arms. "That wasn't in your list either."
"Just dance with me!" She stamped her foot. "It's the last dance!"
"I don't want to dance with you!" He replied, his voice raising in anger. He'd wanted to save a dance for Kristy and now it was clear that, wherever she was, she wasn't going to show.
"Fine." She growled. "I'll go find Lee. He's free now "
"Lee's Kristy's date."
He didn't know why he'd let that slip out. Kayla paused and turned back around. "What?"
Jeremy frowned. "Wait " A look of horror appeared on her

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

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

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 Death3 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 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.

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

"You made it." Jeremy lit up.
Kristy seemed stunned. " You're not repulsed?"
"No " Jeremy frowned. She'd changed. It wasn't just the light turning her blue, it was her actual skin. She looked starved of oxygen. Purple streaks had appeared in her hair. She had one red eye and the other iris and pupil seemed to be in the shape of a skull. Her lips were even redder than before, hiding spiked teeth. "Why would I be?"
"Jeremy," she replied, "I'm dead."
"But You're alive. You're here."
"I know, but I'm also dead." She put the gun down on the table and ruffled her skirt nervously, just as she had done waiting for Lee's car. Her dress had gone through its own magical transformation too. The colours had swapped places. The dress was crimson and the apples black with tears of green poison seeping from the cores. Jeremy suddenly noticed she was wearing the meat-cleaver necklace he'd bought for her last birthday. Had she been wearing that earlier

A Luke/Percy one-shot
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

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

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

Percy sighed as Annabeth continued her rant about how they should go out and hit a club tonight. They were all underage, but she'd be providing them with fake ids. Grover was the closest, at twenty, but he could pass for being twenty one, or maybe older. Annabeth was the youngest of the group, still eighteen. Percy had just turned nineteen a few weeks ago.
He wasn't really enthusiastic about this whole idea. A club wasn't really his ideal hangout place. He'd much rather have a house party and invite some friends of theirs. However, for some reason, Annabeth seemed hellbent on dragging Percy to this bar. Percy frowned, knowing his parents might kill him if they found out he was going to use a fake ID at a bar and attempted to buy alcohol.
They had always been strict parents. They always made sure to push him to his limits. They hadn't always been like this, but a few years back, they had just seemingly changed around him. They made him take up martial arts lessons, and do weir

The next morning we get a better idea of where we are. We go downstairs together, still holding hands. There’s a kitchen with tables and chairs. I think the furniture is second-hand. It’s bruised. The room smells of oatmeal. A kettle hisses on a worktop. There are a few women there, other lodgers I guess. They eat while seven children hide under the table legs. They play with toys which like the table were loved once. Faye comes in and waves us to a table. The other women smile sympathetically as we sit.
She sits us down to explain. This is a shelter for families that have been broken. Some of the women have the tell-tale marks on their face. I recognise them because I have them too.

Kristy watched the dying embers of the fire from the side of the river bed. The car had fallen through the wooden beams as they burned. Now smouldering remains of bridge, car, and body were merging in the muddy water and flowing gently away. She looked up. There was a clear line that divided the sky where her power's grip lost hold. It ran parallel in the sky to the river. Somewhere beyond, the police were waiting. They'd come as far as the bridge, only to find it burnt. She had caught a glimpse of their flashing lights and the whirling sirens as they turned to find a new way across. That was the only bridge, but she knew they would find the new path eventually. Now it was just a matter of time.
She turned away from the last of the flames and climbed back up the bank. Her heels sank in the mud, only for the ground to spit them back out again, as if rejecting her. She hauled herself up onto the grass beside the road, and came face-to-fac

If the reigning lion wins then all carries on as normal.

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.
