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

“Goddess, please accept my offer.”I muttered as I threw a Drachmae into the rainbow coloured light. The moment the coin hit the light, it disappeared. “Camp Half-Blood, Annabeth please.”I said next with a sigh.
It took a few seconds before Annabeth’s face appeared and she wasn’t alone. Also Grover was with her. “Percy!”she spoke the moment she saw me. “Hey guys.”I said with a sad smile. It had been three days since our encounter with the Amphisbaena. Three days since Althea’s dad had died.
Annabeth and Grover had returned to Camp the next day but I had stayed. Althea needed me for the moment. “How’s our flower doing?”Grover wanted to know. He and Althea were quite close. Guess it had something to do with the whole ‘protect nature’ thing they shared.
“Not so good.”I told them. “She hasn’t said a
Chaos (Part 2)After we left Cabin 11, Jacob was whisked away by Travis and Connor, the dryad close behind them. This left me, Andrew and a tired Becky alone next to the hearth at the center of camp. I briefly wondered about that girl the tree nymph had mentioned. Who was she? Why was she staying in the Hermes cabin? What did she have against the Hephaestus campers? I decided not to dwell on it, though. No point in asking answer-less questions, right?Chaos (Part 2) by YouRock321
After a short debate, we decided to head down to the arena to see what was going on. A decently long walk later, we ended up in the heat of a battle taking place in the colosseum-looking building. About fifteen people were in the center, all of them dressed in full battle gear. They were each fighting against each other with swords, spears and even daggers that had a bronze color to them. There were dummies dressed in breastplates and helmets that were pushed the far wall to make room for the hand-to-hand combat raging on. The people fighting varied in

Art trade with AKgirlie98 – A Percy Jackson one shot
“I’ll show them how it’s done.”I muttered to myself through gritted teeth as I pulled myself up onto a higher branch of the so called ‘unclimbable tree’. Why it was unclimbable? Very simple. It was a giant amongst his fellow tree friends that surrounded Camp Half-Blood plus he had over a million of branches from which only a handful were good enough to support your weight.
If you picked one of the not-so-good branches to stand on, it would snap and you would tumble all the way back down. I’m speaking out of experience here. This was the thirteenth time already that I tried to climb this tree today. But I wasn’t going to give up. Oh, no… Julie Morgan would be the first one to climb this unclimbable tree and the whole camp would now it! After all, wasn’t there some saying that said ‘thirteen is the charm’?
By now I had

A Percy Jackson one shot
Forcing my tears to stay inside of my eyes, I marched through the woods of Camp Half-Blood. I had been here for only a small week and already hated it! Why, you ask? I’m a four-year-old demigod in a camp full of demigod teenagers who see me as a baby!
‘No Althea, you’re too young for sword fighting.’.
‘You’re also too young for practising archery.’.
‘Everyone ready for a game of catch the flag? Oh, not you Althea. You’re only a little kid.’.
My blood was boiling so hard from all those ‘too young’, ‘too small’ and ‘little kid’ comments. The last one was made by a kid from the Ares cabin who happened to be now hanging upside down from a tree above a pool with very enthusiastic piranhas. Seriously though… Why was I here if I couldn’t participate in any of the activities?
Well no, that’s not true… The
