    Summary

    “Do you have gills?”

    “...What?”

    Harrison blushed but repeated his question with growing confidence, “Do you have gills? Malcolm was saying how you can breathe underwater but that's not possible with human lungs as-”

    “Woah, calm down, buddy,” Percy chuckled nervously, his eyes searching for an escape from the conversation, “I don’t know how I can do it, I just can.”

    The look he got told him what Harrison thought of that, “You figured out you can breathe underwater and didn’t want to know why?”

    “I’m a son of Poseidon.” He missed the days that sentence caused a greater reaction than the rolling of eyes. Wait, no he didn’t.

    “Yes but did that change your anatomy? Does it impact your ability to breathe oxygen? Do you-”

    “Annabeth probably knows the answer to those questions and she’s a lot smarter than me. Why don’t you go ask her?” Percy interrupted, knowing that if he let a child of Athena start asking questions they wouldn’t stop.

    “I did. She told me to ask you.”

    Oh.

    Well, shit.

    Summary

    "I … I don't get what I’m meant to do. I just throw my food into the fire and ... talk?" James, a son of Hermes asked -- Percy could recognise those blue eyes and elfish facial features anywhere.

    Percy grinned, "Yeah, that's pretty much it."

    James hesitated before looking down at his feet, "But ... Hermes has a lot of children more powerful and more popular than me. What would I even ask him for? It's not like he cares."

    Maybe it was because of the way James resembled Percy's little sister Estelle at that moment as he looked down in shame, or maybe it was because Percy was reminded of that promise he wrangled from the gods at age sixteen, but one moment he was looking at the younger camper, and the next he was throwing some of his food into the fire and asking Poseidon for some Disneyland tickets very, very loudly.

    But even though he wasn't quite sure how it happened, the small, shocked laugh that James let out made it worth it.

    Or

    Percy sees that some of the newer campers don't feel 100% comfortable with requesting stuff from their godly parents, so he decides to rectify that the only way he knows how -- dramatically.

    Summary


    “Why are you looking at skateboards?” asks Luke.

    “Maybe Kronos wants us to get a skateboard.”

    Luke presses a hand on the top of Percy’s head and physically turns him away from the window display.

    “Does Kronos want us to get a skateboard,” he says.

    “…No.”


    Luke wants to know what the hell Percy thinks he’s doing. Percy wants Luke to trip and fall over the side of the yacht. They are, as always, at an impasse.

    Summary

    “What is it?” Grover asks, “What’s with that weird look on your face?”

    “Just trying to figure out if turning me in will get us enough bounty money to buy our way to LA.” Percy says, craning his neck towards the news van.

    “We are not turning you in to the police.” Grover presses his head back into the alleyway.

    “Why not?” Percy says. They could use a bit of cash. “You guys can just break me out afterwards, right?”

    Annabeth looks like she’s considering it.

    “No, guys,” Grover says. “No.”


    If Percy has to spend the rest of his life cleaning up after the gods, then he might as well start from the beginning.
