Eurydice, Eat Your Heart Out (Adrino Percy Jackson AU)
In the dark of Cabin 10, staring up at the roof of
his bunk, Adrien could hear the distant plucking of a harp as waves lapped
lazily against the shoreline.
All things considered, it wasn’t surprising that he
was having trouble sleeping; less than twenty-four hours earlier his father’s
limo was nearly destroyed by a rampaging Cyclops that the middle-aged fashion
mogul dispatched with a quick flick of a sword he drew from seemingly nowhere.
From there, it was somewhat of a blur of packing, private jet rides, and
clandestine car trips to the sunny shores of Long Island, New York, a silver
pen containing the only means of protection he had in case other monsters
He could still scarcely believe it. If someone had
told him that he was the product of an affair between his mother and the
Greco-Roman goddess of love and beauty a few days ago, he would have been
dialing Gorilla’s number as quickly as he could while backing away from them.
Now, surrounded by dozens of half-siblings he never knew existed, Adrien didn’t
quite know what to make of his current situation. He still thought he was going
to wake up, home in Paris, and the whole thing would have been just a fever
dream brought on by bad cheese; the attack, the journey, the music-
Sitting up in bed, Adrien strained his ears over the
snoring of his bunkmate to hear the almost aimless melody that meandered its
way across the waves. It was a song that sounded so familiar; like the chorus
to something he had heard on the radio years ago. It couldnt’ve been coming
from far, judging by the way it cut through the sound of twenty-five teenagers’
beauty sleep, so, clutching his pen and carrying his sneakers, Adrien tip-toed
towards the door as quietly as possible, stepping out into the warm Long Island
Bike rides is nature walks. It’s mulberry season again. Time for taking mental notes on the locations of all the fruitful trees and casually pedaling, picking, and exploring new nooks & crannies of the city while bouncing from tree to tree. The freezer is slowly fillings with bricks of frozen berries to cook into jam and can on a rainy day for the best french toasts.

Ash and Misty’s first kiss was anything but serious, basically underage drinking happened and a very intense game of truth or dare. Most of their friends were around and also tipsy, and for some reason May, Dawn, and Iris got it into their heads that they should dare Ash to kiss Misty. The two comply, but in the most comical way possible, sucking on each others faces in the most unromantic way. This gets a lot of laughs from their audience and they say no more about it. A few weeks later Ash and Misty are swimming in the Cerulean City Gym’s pool and Ash casually brings up the occasion. Misty is mortified as she had little to no memory of that night due to her alcohol intake, so Ash teases her relentlessly about it, splashing water in her face and taunting her. Once Misty’s face was redder than a beet Ash asked her if he should remind her. This confused Misty since Ash was not in tune to romance or anything akin to it, before she could reply he gave her a proper first kiss, one that both of them would remember. They each tasted like chlorine and it was a little weird, but that didn’t mean they didn’t enjoy it, or do it again.
Drew recognized the fact that May was not the perceptive type when it came to love. He had been pretty damn obvious about it with the roses and everything so he decided to go for an even more direct approach. As had become their tradition over the years, whenever they met up while traveling they would go out for coffee or lunch (not dinner because Drew knew of May’s insane eating habits and did not want an empty wallet). One day while they’re both in the same town for a contest, after getting coffee Drew asks if she wants to take a walk around with him. May, bring May, accepts and is blissfully ignorant of his intentions. They’re walking through a park and out of nowhere Drew lifts her up off the ground, causing her to shriek, half out of surprise and half out of confusion. He then proceeds to press his lips against hers, May remains wide eyed and completely in shock. When he pulls away she demands to be let down, Drew smirks at her embarrassment and she orders him to never do that again. He agrees with mock sincerity and May storms off angry but sort of turned on. Needless to say he breaks his promise very quickly the next time they meet up.
In a moment of what Paul calls insanity, he sleeps with Dawn. It was a spur of the moment and heated decision, definitely would not be described as ‘making love’. They proceed to do it every so often, no strings or feelings attached to their midnight rendezvous. The only rule Dawn puts in place is that she doesn’t want him to kiss her on her lips as she finds the act to intimate for a noncommittal, purely physical relationship; Paul doesn’t really care and goes along with it. Everything was going fine until they started running into each other when they weren’t planning on having sex, in situations where they would actually have to converse with one another. Dawn soon finds herself attached, much to her dismay, and Paul now finds it awkward to sleep with someone he would consider a frequent acquaintance. Basically they both agree to call it off. They continue to run into each other, and during one of these times Dawn plucks the courage to talk to Paul about their former arrangement. He isn’t very communicative but Dawn persists, apologizing for the trouble it caused and making a sad attempt at explaining her reasoning. When she finally stops babbling the two look at each other and neither of them are sure who leans in first, but their lips slowly meet each other. Neither of them had a clue what they were doing so their lips didn’t move and their hands stayed by their side. When Paul pulled away Dawn hadn’t realized she’d closed her eyes. This begins a very tentative and careful relationship between the two of them.
Cilan knew of Iris’s crush on him, and Iris knew he knew and was pissed he did nothing about it. Never addressed it in the years they’d been friends and she’d liked him, not once. It was actually quite infuriating. In Cilan’s defense when he’d noticed Iris’s crush on him she had been twelve and he fifteen, hardly appropriate ages to act on such matters. Now with her eighteen and him twenty one he had no real reason to not mention it. Over the years they’d become best friends, they weren’t sure how it happened, but after she’d become a gym leader they found themselves always meeting up at events and the like. They’d talk on the phone often and send photos to each other. Over that time period Cilan had grown to care for Iris as more than a friend. She’d noticed it and it annoyed her to no end that he wouldn’t do anything about it, he was supposed to be confidant and outgoing and elaborately ask her out, but it never happened. Deciding to take matters into her own hands and took a plane to Striaton City, marched into the gym, and searched for her target. Cilan saw her and began to smile before he saw the pissed off look on her face. Cilan started to protest he hadn’t done anything but Iris cut him off wrapping her arms around his neck and kissing him. When she pulled away she chastised him for being such a kid and not having to balls to ask her out himself. On the spot he grows a pair and asks her to dinner. She accepts triumphantly.
Serena was susceptible to crushes, it was just the way she was. It never defined her existence or purpose but there was always someone that would come around and cause her heart to beat fast and her cheeks to flush. So once she had moved on from her infatuation with Ash, she was slightly surprised to find herself crushless. This went on for years as she furthered her career as a Pokemon Performer, it was strange but nice to not worry about impressing someone all the time. When she’s fifteen she has a performance in Luminose City, and simply has to meet up with Bonnie and Clemont before she leaves since they hadn’t seen each other in person for a few years. When she arrives at the gym a familiar feeling pierces her chest when she sees Clemont working on what she suspected was another one of his inventions, completely covered in grease, with messy hair, and his glasses falling of his face. She shakes it off quickly and greets the two siblings. After a few hours of hanging around in the gym and goofing off her’s suspicions are true, she has broken her streak of not having crushes. She eventually has to leave but before she does she makes a spur of the moment choice to have confidence in herself act on her infatuation instead of being silent like she had on every other occasion. Serena delivers her goodbyes to Bonnie and before Clemont can get a word out, she kisses him quickly and asks him to call her more often. He’s embarrassed and so is she. Neither of them know where it will go, but they take it slow and eventually one kiss leads to many more. Bonnie is thrilled.
Both of them are around six. Ash is sick in bed with a cold so they both are left to their own devices and one short one playmate. Gary and Leaf decide to explore Professor Oak’s backyard, aka the best playground ever for children who love Pokemon. As usual they get into an argument and without Ash to mediate their squabbles it makes it harder for the two to agree on things. When they reach the mutual understanding that wading in the river would be much more exciting than climbing trees for the umpteenth time, they finally have a mission. When they reach the calm river, sit on the side, and dip their toes in the cool water they notice the water Pokemon swimming about. The two spot a pair of Luvdisks kissing, and Leaf remarks on how she doesn’t understand why mommies and daddies do that sort of thing. Gary agrees with the sentiment, calling it gross but asks if she’d try with him as an experiment. Being the son of a scientist, naturally he’d want to test it to see if a reason could be found out. Leaf shrugs, not really caring either way, so they kiss each other, holding it for about five seconds before breaking apart in confusion. Leaf still doesn’t understand why mommies and daddies kiss and Gary has come to no conclusion other than kissing is overrated. Ten years later, that is not the case.
I’ve been gone for a long time but I just wanted to share this quick Stranger Things set I drew out of nowhere in a few hours. I’m particularly fond of how Barb turned out but that may be because she’s my fave.
In celebration of another week where we learn nothing about the Mark of Cain!
I told myself I’d do one of these for every episode they ignore it, but that first pic took way too long. I signed up to do art for a fic that has a noir theme so I wanted to practice something before I get to disappoint someone else. Also my tablet cord broke after I did the lines, so there’s that. Loosely inspired by the art in Sin City, which I have not read in far too long.
If they stall for another week, I’m tossing Cas in a dress, too.
