Pjo Characters as things my MOTHER has done
Clarisse: Tried to rev the engine of her car, only to remember that she has a hybrid and can’t exactly rev an engine with a hybrid (they’re ghostly quiet), so she drove sadly through the gate to park her car in the carport of the house
Piper: used that same car to sneak up on MPs at the gate. Has succeeded several times
Hylla: Memorized the traffic hours, road maps, and shifts of workers so she can calculate the best time and place to get a good cup of Starbucks.
Reyna: Has this voice that she uses: A ton of bass and a slow extra-pronunciation. She uses it only when she means business - To-Mar-Oh ‘tomorrow’ for instance. I pointed this out once before, when we were coming back from a Starbucks trip and she typically tells me to clean the kitchen/liter box/room/etc., and asked her way she wasn’t using her *deepens voice* tomorrow voice. She cackled and hasn’t been able to take it seriously ever since
Percy: Has repeatedly asked me why I hated going to the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium after she took us there for the third year in a row.
Nico: As a joke, because my Grandmother thought she was safe for her 50th birthday while mom was deployed over seas, sent a black cake with black balloons/presents/other death things to my grandmother’s work. Now, this doesn’t sound half bad, until you realise my grandmother worked at a hospital’s ER.
Sally: jogged/sprinted across a field and a street during a ceremony because a paratrooper accidentally misaimed and ended up being several hundred feet off target. She ran, IN HER BLUES, to make sure he was alright
Annabeth: Played the flute in high school while her twin sister did JROTC, but ended up being the one who enlisted
Nyssa: Once told me and my sister that, while her car was in the shop getting fixed, that the car dude has installed a voice activated window control feature. It didn’t work while the car was in reverse, an you had to turn and yell at the window ‘Down’ or ‘Up’ to control it. It didn’t have a stop feature. And I called a silent BS because she pointed at an airbag pocket. When Jay Sean’s “Down” came on, my sister and I commanded the window with the song.
Frank: Worked at a vets office with a guy who was allergic to animals - she had made a vow to never declaw a cat
Hazel: Memorized how to get past the neighbour’s activated floodlight in their backyard just to hang out with the houses.
Thalia: Rode out Hurricane Matthew while sleeping through it.
Harley: Uses the Pythagorean Theorem to calculate whether or not it’s worth taking the Interstate or to go through the backroads instead.
Lacey: wore a handmade sequin dress to her prom
Leo: Grows horribly offended if you ever ask her for A.1. sauce for ANY reason
Katie: grows grass (and in the past: catnip) specifically for the purpose of pleasing her cat
Chiron: watched in amusement as my teachers successfully cleaned out my book bag for the 40th time in the prior year or so
Meg: Get’s mildly upset that she didn’t think of the pun before I stated it
Apollo: Her first meal at her first duty station was McDonalds. Her first duty station was SK
Drew: Watched Madona on MTV while she was in labour with me. The song I was officially proclaimed alive and born at was ‘Music’
Luke: has a scar on her cupids bow from the time the neighbours’ kids were throwing rocks over the power line. They told her to move, and instead she stopped and looked up only for it to hit her face and bust her lip
Silena: use to show, and win, at horse competitons
Jason: her nickname is Mothership
