So first off, I found out coincidentally that this is – word by word – the caption of an artwork jswander posted a while back. Please don’t do that, it’s rude in the face of the artist, and it puts me in a bad place when I don’t notice too.
I talked to Jo, she is fine with me doing this, but please people, next time, ask the artist first and don’t just steal their ideas.
It made me feel wary of this prompt, I’m not sure if it shows. I tried to find a way to go in an entirely different direction than what Jo had hinted at – I hope it works.
In this AU, Reyna was sent to CHB in Jason’s place. In case anyone thought something else.

Percy blinked himself awake. For a moment, he didn’t know where he was and a shiver went down his spine. It was too dark to see anything, and it was quite around except for… someone was breathing steady right next to him, and when Percy turned around – struggling a little with the arm he found draped over his chest – he came face to face with a blonde. Oh, yeah, right.
He was in Camp Jupiter, the praetor’s house on the Via Principalis, the blonde next to him wasn’t the girl whose face he remembered, but someone else. Percy stifled a groan – how could he have been that stupid? Not just that he was issued to go on a quest by the evening of his fist day in this camp, he also managed to get it going with the freaking praetor on the first night of said camp. Percy wondered how he had actually managed to survive this long.
Jason stirred and Percy wondered if he would get away with fleeing right now. Frank already must have noticed that Percy hadn’t stayed the night with the cohort, but maybe if he could slip into his bunk before sunrise…
“You’re thinking too loud.” Percy blinked. Jason’s eyes were open and warm with the smile playing on the other boy’s lips. Percy swallowed, he was even more screwed than he had initially thought.
