The Sound of Silence -- Chapter 1The Sound of Silence -- Chapter 1 by dreamiestars
Darkness cascaded over the mountains, swallowing it whole. A voice, which seemed to come from the scene itself, washed over me like waves on a shore. It was rough, low, and monotonous – who it was from, I did not know. It spoke four clear, rhyming sentences to me.
Return to the Underworld and repent
The monster of stone seeks revenge
Death's daughter will fall into darkness
A battle of three shall end with a promise
I woke up with a start, sweat in little beads falling from my forehead, dripping down my face. Frantically looking around, I sat up, feeling the rays of sunshine from my window warm me.
Another crazy dream. Great. It wasn't like I wasn't used to them, I was, trust me – but surely I thought by now there should be a plausible reason why I keep having them day, after day, night, after night. They kept coming, and sometimes I would have two at a time. Never mind a good night's rest, I was a stranger to that now.
My cabin was empty, like always. Piles of dirt
Casper the Friendly GhostBattles raged. Blood spilt. Souls fled from their battered bodies. People cried out. Some hesitated. Others charged and took demi-god lives without a thought.Casper the Friendly Ghost by Akela-Nakamura
This was war.
Nico stood in it. He felt the souls as they passed into the Underworld to face judgment. He could do nothing. His mission had failed. Roman and Greek blood was pouring out. He was useless. Swords passed through his body as if he was made of mist. No one saw him. No one cared.
Everyone he knew was dying. And it was all his fault.
He looked at the burning remains of the statue of Athena. Octavian refused to listen to reason. He refused to believe a Greek. He’d slain Reyna. He’d cursed Nico as a traitor of Rome and an infiltrator for Greece. Coach had barely managed to escape with his wife.
Mrs. O’Leary, the faithful hellhound, had faced the Roman legionnaires bravely, but she could not stand against 200 united Romans. She’d faded into the ground and back to Tartarus. Nico felt despair and grief
Music is all you needMusic is all you needMusic is all you need by starbreese
- a Percy Jackson one shot –
“Okay, here we go…”I mused as I kneeled in my own private garden. Why I had my own private garden? Well… I have the tendency to do my gardening with music on the background. Only my siblings didn’t share my taste in music being punk, rock, pop and a mix of those.
Therefor I had started my own garden on the patch of ground underneath my own treehouse which was positioned between the Zeus and Poseidon cabin. A gift from mommy-dearest after completing my first quest.
I clapped shortly in my hands drawing the attention of my flowers. “Okay my little rock stars, let’s make some music.”. I pressed the on-button of my dock station which was connected to my iPod. Immediately the familiar tunes of ‘Counting stars’ by OneRepublic sounded through the air.
“Guitars.”I instructed on which the roses in my garden started to open and close at the rhythm
Out of the Shadows...And Into the LightNico stood in the shadows, the cold, uncaring shadows. Light didn’t shine here. He was nothing but a shadow, transient. Fading when the light hit it. Scared to face the warmth.Out of the Shadows...And Into the Light by Akela-Nakamura
There was a light. But Nico didn’t dare approach. He knew very well what that light thought of him. What they all thought of him. He heard the light curse in Greek as it stumbled through the dark. What an idiot, trying to find his way through the shadows with nothing but the fire in the palm of his hand. Didn’t he know the shadows here were too deep to be penetrated by such puny light?
Didn’t he know that the light was going to be sucked in by the dark and killed? Death followed him. Shadows and death and death and shadows. He was cold. Cold, cold, cold to the core. No light could penetrate the dark of his soul.
The one he loved the most didn’t love him back. And yet still, he’d fallen into Tartarus. He’d survived. Barely. But Nico knew it was pointless to love Percy Jac
