do you ever just
make a friend and think
I am so glad this friend is mine
Am I really the only one that reads the Regents’ addendums to the manual?
Jupiter’s great red spot. A hurricane three times the size of our whole planet that’s been raging for centuries.
I like new friends because I can reuse old jokes
no seriously percy and piper would have the cutest lil friendship with inside jokes and stupid puns and laughing hard at stuff that isn’t funny while annabeth and jason would just watch from afar and wonder where did they go wrong
Like Percy would be watching finding nemo and eating pizza while Piper braids his hair and do his nail and in the background you can see Jason patting Annabeth in the back while she hits her head against the table
And Piper and Percy have this inside joke where they each try to find blue nailpolish with the most ridiculous name and they keep trying to one-up each other, although Percy always complains that Piper has an unfair advantage since she can steal nailpolish from her siblings. And eventually Annabeth and Jason get tired of watching their significant others being giant dorks so they go off to spar for a while, and when they get back to cabin 3, Percy and Piper are all cuddled up watching the little mermaid and bantering (Piper’s new nickname for Percy becomes Ariel—he argues that his hair isn’t even red, and that in reality Poseidon is nothing like Triton), and Annabeth and Jason just sigh and give in and force Percy and Piper to make room for them to snuggle in too.
Let’s see, long story short, I accidentally dreamed up an AU where I resurrected Sam? And I wrote the below piece as a sort of proof-of-concept or something to give the storyline a test drive. This scene would be an emotional turning point and the beginning of the end of the fic. It takes place the night after Helena turned up at the warehouse for a visit and then left again.
I also used this piece to experiment more with tight, close-up POV narration. If you have any feedback, it would be more than welcomed. :) My apologies for the Read More break that probably won’t show up on mobile and force everyone on phones to scroll forever to get past it :/
