Title: A Mere Collection of Words
Characters/Pairings: Percy Jackson/Annabeth Chase
Word Count: ~3600
Summary: Pretty, cute, striking, gorgeous, beautiful. Ten synonyms, and how they all apply to Annabeth Chase through the eyes of Percy Jackson. Percy/Annabeth Oneshot; rating for implied sexytimes.
Rating: R-16
A/N: Written for #5: Beautiful on the PJO yalit100 Challenge. Also done because Percy describes Annabeth in a whole cacophony of words when he really just wants to say that he's utterly attracted to her. I mean, I've always found it adorable that Percy only referred to Annabeth as pretty, cute, and beautiful and never in sorta-objectifying terms like hot or anything that pertains specifically to her sex appeal. Like, he acknowledges Annabeth is pretty but ultimately her looks weren't what he fell for, and I love that. And yet a shallow part of me was semi-disappointed because Percy, your girlfriend is hella gorgeous (I mean, you can't be a demigod as physically active as Annabeth Chase and not have a rockin' bod worth commentary), and you don't notice? It may have been because the series is, you know, supposed to be for kids, but Percy's still a teenager and I expected him to at least call her hot once. AND THEN IT HAPPENED IN HOUSE OF HADES. PERCY CALLS HER HOT AND I MADE A HUGE DEAL OVER THAT ONE LINE BECAUSE YESSSS FINALLY PERCY ADMITS HIS PHYSICAL ATTRACTION TO ANNABETH FIC MUST BE DONE.

Or maybe, you know, I was just looking for an excuse to write these two dorks in various stages of their relationship

Title: Remedy
Characters/Pairings: Percy Jackson/Annabeth Chase
Word Count: ~1800
Summary: They craved contact sometimes. Just a small touch to remind themselves that the other was still there; a slight brush of skin to let the other person know that they were alive and most importantly, they were together. Percy and Annabeth, Post-MoA. Rated for instances of PTSD.
Rating: PG-13
A/N: Written for #45: Need on the PJO yalit100 Challenge. I only now realize it's been so long since I last wrote for my OTP. Much too long.

Title: Ulterior Motives
Characters/Pairings: Nico di Angelo/Rachel Dare
Summary: In which Rachel has a bad habit of painting at odd hours of the evening, and Nico just wants his personal space heater to cuddle with him. OneShot.
Rating: PG-13
A/N: Written for lovelysolitude's prompt over at the Rachel/Nico Holiday Challenge. Happy New Year, all!

She had not noticed him when he approached her from behind, but she did notice him when his large hands slipped under her shirt and rested flat on her bare stomach. The brush in her hand clattered on the floor as she yelped. "Dammit, Nico! Your hands are freezing!"Collapse )

Hazel: You should've been there when Percy was made Praetor, Annabeth.
Frank: Yeah. He almost fell flat on his face.
Percy: Thanks a lot, Frank.
Annabeth: Really, Seaweed Brain? Again?
Percy: Hey, laughing at your boyfriend? Not cool, Wise Girl.
Annabeth: You're hopeless.
-Meanwhile, with the TLH characters-
Piper: So, this is your home, Jason?
Jason: Yeah, it is.
Piper: It really is beautiful.
Jason: Kind of like yo—
Leo: HOLY HEPHAESTUS! Jason, you guys have a WAR ELEPHANT? Sweet! You've got to see this, Beauty Queen!
Piper: Leo...
Jason: Leo...


Or 'How the reunion at New Rome in the Mark of Athena should have ended up.' Because kicking the Seven out of New Rome (and potentially damaging what could have been the most kickass sisterhood that was Annabeth and Reyna) is so not cool, Rick Riordan.

Title: The Three Possible Futures of Nico di Angelo (And How Rachel Dare is Responsible for Every One of Them)
Characters/Pairings: Nico di Angelo/Rachel Dare, slight Percy Jackson/Annabeth Chase
Word Count: ~4000
Summary: Behind every twenty-four-year-old half-Italian son of Hades is a redheaded Oracle who is the cause of his profession, and boy does Rachel never let him forget it.
Rating: PG-13
A/N: Many things to say about this fic:

First of all, this fic was written for prplesockerstar (who gifted me with the most wonderful oneshot a couple of weeks back. You can read that over here). Sorry it’s quite late, m’dear. I hope it’s to your liking.

Secondly, the ideas for Nico’s professions for #1 and #3 aren’t originally mine. Credit must go to greenconverses on that front, particularly to Death’s Dare and this wonderful fic. If you haven’t read any of her work, I suggest you go do so. Like, right now. You are missing out on a huge chunk of your PJO fandom life. Props must also go to artemisrae for the idea of Percy as a cop.

This fic can also alternatively be named “The Three Possible Ways Nico and Rachel’s Relationship Could Have Turned Out,” mostly because, since this ship isn’t really in canon, these two could end up anywhere from friends to more-or-less permanent significant others.

Lastly, this was originally supposed to be The Four Possible Futures of Nico di Angelo, but this fic got away from me really fast and, with each possible future being more or less a oneshot, ended up quite long. Knowing that some people don’t like reading long fics, I had to remove one. For those who are interested, though, the possible future I took out was Nico as a medical examiner – you know, that dude in the crime shows who does the autopsies? Yeah, that. Rachel claimed credit for Nico ending up that way because she was the one who forced coerced him into going to college under a Dare Enterprise scholarship. (Idea for this profession is not mine, either. It goes to supersadisticsam004 over at FF.Net).

“I blame Rachel. She brainwashed me. Planted information in my head every time she said some random art fun-fact and made sure it stayed there.”Collapse )
