Beings of myth; Medusa

“…upon that perfect countenance was the mark of eternal pain, of deathless agony and suffering past words… in the wide eyes seemed yet to lurk the flame of an unquenchable fire; while around the fair brows, in place of hair, curled and coiled the stark bodies of venomous serpents.”  
― Gertrude Bacon

pjo original trio: percy, annabeth, and grover

“Stop it, both of you!” I felt like my heart was being ripped in two. They had both been with me through so much.

They had done nothing but save me, over and over, and now they wanted to sacrifice their lives for my mom.
