178 people live in this tiny Portuguese medieval village called Piódão, situated in the Serra do Açor mountainside. The buildings are built with traditional schist stonework, wooden doors, and blue painted windows. Many homes nail tiny wooden crosses on their door frames to ward off storms.
Prompt: “You raised the undead so that you could have people to do your errands?”
It had been 3 days now. 3 days since those annoying little schists had arrived. The ’wizards’. Psh. Yeah, right.
Most of the camp had welcomed them with open arms. Surprisingly. The Hectate cabin especially seemed to have a profound respect for them after the wizards proved themselves worthy of wielding magic… with wands no less.
The Athena cabin though seemed to take in the girl as one of their own. For the past few days she had spent day in and day out with Annabeth doing gods knows what.
That bothered you to no end. That witch annoyed you to no end. You didn’t even know why. You didn’t hate the other two wizards. Sure, they were kinda weird but they were cool.
Harry was apparently like the Percy of wizard kind. Everyone either loved him or hated him and wanted to kill him. The ginger kid, Ron was hands down one of the funniest people you had ever met. He really gives Leo a run for his money but despite that, they seem to be getting along like brothers.
Now that you thought about it, maybe it’s was fact that her British accent was fucking cute that you hated so much. Or maybe it’s the weird private school uniform she always seems to wear that piques you. You don’t know what it is, you just hate her.
You thought it was ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous. She were ridiculous. And those robes. Ha!
“[Y/n].” You slashed one last cut and sliced the dummy’s head clean off its shoulders. Pleased with yourself you turned to greet your brother.
“Hey Neeks,” you grinned. He stared at the dummy’s head, still rolling across the floor before Mrs.O'Leary came out of nowhere, swallowing it in one bite.
You cleared your throat and your brother turned to glare at you, remembering that he hated that nickname.
You picked your water bottle off the ground, sheathed your weapon and walked with your brother toward the the Big House.
“We have dish washing duty after dinner,” Nico informed, running a hand through his hair. You sighed and rolled your eyes.
Up until now the two of you had avoided chores by being one of the cleanest cabins. However last week you two went to visit your sister, Hazel, at Camp Jupiter and stayed there for a few days. You had barely arrived back yesterday but the Hades cabin was already messy.
“We don’t have to do the dishes,” you said thoughtfully. Your older brother glanced at you out of the corner of his eyes.
“How do you mean?”
You paused, making Nico raise a brow in question. “Brother we have friends who can do that for us.”
He furrowed his brows, not quite comprehending.
You sighed and looked at the ground. You concentrated until you felt a soft tug inside you. A crack formed in the ground and a hand clawed its way out. Before you knew it there was a skeleton warrior before you.
“You’re saying a skeleton can do our chores?” Nico asked, crossing his arms over his chest. You smirked slightly and mirrored his actions.
“Well why not? Father gave you a chauffeur. He gave me a butler. Chiron never specified if we were allowed to use our powers. He just assigns a cabin to make sure it’s done.” You say. He nods thoughtfully, weighing your argument against the simple fact that the Hades cabin has cleaning duty. Not the Hades cabin mascots.
“Plus,” you add. “We summon them all the time to run our errands.”
You turn to your butler, who is patiently waiting for orders. “I’ll summon you later tonight, Colins. Sorry for the false alarm, but you get to wash dishes later!” You exclaim, feigning enthusiasm.
Your butler chitters and nods excitedly before jumping back into the hole he crawled from. You seal the crack and turn to smile at your brother.
“See? Colins doesn’t mind one-”
“You raised the undead so that you could have people to do your errands?” A snotty voice asks behind you.
Nico and you whirl around and ugh. It’s that annoying witch. And she’s just about looking over your shoulder.
“Yes,” you growl. “I did.”
She scrunches up her nose and glances at the mark left behind by the crack you opened in the ground.
She grabs her wand from her robe and twirls it around her fingers, lifting a brow.
She’s walking backwards, with her lip curled in disgust.
You unconsciously debate raising a bone for her to trip on but decide against it. Best save that for a better day.
“Excuse me,” she says. “I have to go and vomit.”
Your face must have been comical because you faintly hear Nico snickering next to you.
“You do that,” you snap.
You turn away from her, making sure to whip your hair so that it fans her face. “She’s such a nuisance,” you mutter under your breath.
Nico chuckles and you look at him, raising a brow.
“What?” You ask, irked.
He shakes his head, still smirking. “Nothing. But your going to have to deal with that nuisance for the next few days because she’s on our team during capture the flag. And, you missed announcements during lunch but you are partnered up to teach her all the activities we have.”
You groan loudly. “I’m going to speak to Chiron. Why can’t you teach her?” You whine.
“I can’t. I’m getting checked up.” He says at once.
“All of the next few days?” You inquire incredously.
Your brother shrugs his shoulders apologetically. “Doctor’s orders.” He opens the door the to Big House and walks inside.
“That is not even a valid excuse! You use that for literally everything,” you huff.
The screen door slams shut, nearly smacking you in the face. You stand on the porch and let out a frustrated groan before smacking your head once against the door, causing it to rattle. You pull open the door and stomp inside, all the while complaining under your breath about what you did to deserve such a curse.

I’m one of the few people in the Voltron fandom who doesn’t ship anything (not to say that I hate any of the ships, because I don’t) and I went tag searching today only to find a ton of ship wars. Holy schist.
