Before he lost the curse of Achilles, Annabeth found the best way to wake Percy up was by running her fingertips gently over the small of his back along his weak spot. Percy would be up in a matter of seconds, but his worry would fade away when he recognized the hand touching the spot.
Sally always woke Percy up by saying his name and smoothing his messy bed head until he muttered something coherent. She still did these even when Percy had kids himself.
Annabeth only asked Thalia to wake Percy up once. Only. Once. It included blasting punk music into the bedroom as Thalia calmly moved in the room, grabbing Percy’s blankets, and dragging them down the hallway with her to leave Percy at the mercy of the cold morning. The amount of arguing about wake up methods after Percy was awake led Annabeth to never ask anyone to wake Percy up for her again.
After Piper charm spoke Percy awake, the daughter of Aphrodite nearly convincing him to make her breakfast, Piper was banned from coming within fifteen feet of Percy’s bed.
Nico and Leo were also banned from their bedroom when the pair decided it would be comical to send skeletons into Percy and Annabeth’s bedroom for a morning surprise.
When Percy is the big spoon, he loves to wake Annabeth up by kissing the back of her ear.
When Percy is the little spoon, he never wakes up before Annabeth. She’s usually up and out of bed before he can even begin to wake up.
Both Percy and Annabeth have developed ways to handle each other when nightmares strike. Annabeth holds the sides of Percy’s face to stabilize and calm him before he wakes in a sweaty confusion and she strokes his cheek until he breathes properly. Percy wraps his arms around Annabeth to stop any moment or thrashing and he speaks softly into her ear until he knows she’s completely come back to him from the nightmares.
One summer, the Stoll brothers thought it would be fun to float Percy out onto the sound to see what he’d do. However, they didn’t expect him to slip off the air mattress they put him on and sleep on the bottom of the sound for the next three hours without even noticing a difference.
The only time Percy ever is genuinely cranky and not just tired is when someone tries to wake him up from a nap with Annabeth. There is nothing the son of Poseidon disliked more than being taken away from a warm bed with his beautiful love in the middle of their nap.
alucard emery: gives up four years of his life to buy a magic mirror that’ll show you, in front of your brother and several other people, the objective truth of how he was beaten half to death by his own father for loving you and forced to leave against his will so that you’ll understand just how much he still loves you
“Are you ready ?“ she asked, spinning the chamber. Kell gazed through the gate at the waiting castle. "No.” At that, she offered him the sharpest edge of a grin. “Good,” she said. “The ones who think they’re ready always end up dead.”
(Happy Valentine’s Day guys! Whether you have a Valentine or not, I hope you have an excellent day! Here’s from Percabeth Tired for you :P)
When Annabeth comes home, tired from a long day, she’ll find Percy and move into his lap, napping curled up against him as he easily continued to do his work.
The couple was suppose to join their friends for a late night get together. It was around 2 in the morning when they woke up on a bus, leaning against one another. They fell asleep on the way there, riding around for hours. The bus driver didn’t have the heart to wake them up.
Annabeth is the first person who can tell if Percy is tired, even if he insists he’s perfectly fine.
Both Percy and Annabeth have a habit of squinting when tired, Annabeth out of an almost unclear confusion, and Percy out of sheer annoyance.
Percy has come home many times to find Annabeth completely passed out on their couch, a book falling off her lap and her mouth just barely open, her head propped against the arm rest.
Annabeth doesn’t allow Percy to use any electronic items in the morning around the kitchen until he can at least form one completely coherent sentence.
Percy grows very quiet when he’s tired, answering most of Annabeth’s questions with a nod or shake of his head.
Whoever doesn’t get in the shower first has to make the coffee for the day. Percy is almost always left to the task of making coffee.
Annabeth can take twenty minute naps and feel completely refreshed. Not a single one of Percy’s naps are less then an hour.
One day, both demigods came home completely worn out. Annabeth found Percy totally asleep on the carpet right out side of their bedroom. Instead of even attempting to move him, Annabeth simple grabbed their blanket from their bed and joined him on the floor.
Percy has a habit of forgetting how many presents he buys Annabeth. He just constantly finds meaningful gifts he just has to buy her, even if he has five under the tree for her already.
The best gift Annabeth ever bought Percy was a stuff animal fish (which he still sleeps with even years later).
Their first Christmas together, Percy accidentally short circuited all their power and Christmas lights by connecting the strands on the same outlet. So they spent the holidays by candle light and a fake fireplace on Annabeth’s computer.
Percy’s favorite way to wake up on Christmas morning is with snow falling outside the window, Annabeth still asleep beside him, and soft Christmas music playing on the radio beside their bed.
Percy’s favorite Christmas movie is Elf.
Annabeth’s favorite Christmas movie is The Polar Express.
Percy catches Annabeth every year, fast asleep, with the credits of It’s a Wonderful Life rolling on the screen. She always watched it secretly so she could get emotional without anyone seeing.
Every single Christmas cookie Sally brings Percy is blue, despite the green and red sprinkles on top of the icing.
Annabeth refuses to let Percy play Christmas music until December 1st, despite his consistent begging and insistence that Thanksgiving was better with Jingle Bells in the background.
Percy and Annabeth always host the big Christmas Eve dinner, all their friends staying until midnight so everyone could say Merry Christmas to each other and swap presents.
