okay I might or might not have started writing a Volturi fic detailing their early years, how they meet and form the coven and split that up by telling each of the couples stories as seperate books of an overall story called Titanomachìa because I will liken their rise to power to the war of the olympian gods

no, that certainly did not happen because I can’t even find the time to finish the fic I already am writing and that would be super silly and a total gigantic project right

right?!

Part 4 coming soon!

Annabeth was sprinting as fast as she could. She was going to get to Olympus, barge into the council room and-

And what? She started to slow down.

Was she gonna barge in and demand they made Percy mortal again? She wasn’t even sure that was possible. Demand they made her immortal? She couldn’t just do that. It didn’t matter everything she had gone through for them. They’d incinerate her for that one.

She felt her mind working too fast. There weren’t any options. Hunters had immortality. But she still couldn’t be with Percy in that scenario. And besides, they’d never accept her to be a hunter. She was in love with a man. She wasn’t a maiden. That was their thing, she didn’t qualify.

In the middle of the crowded city street, Annabeth Chase fell to her knees.

She felt like she was drowning in the Cocytus all over again. It wasn’t fair. She felt the ghost of their future, the ghost of him, slip out of her hands.

She stood up, and started walking back to his apartment.

She let herself in, shutting the door quietly behind her. She could see Paul sitting in the living room chair, one hand holding his hanging head. Percy sat on the couch with Sally, her arm around him. Sally looked up, and nudged Percy. Finally, his green eyes turned to her. Her heart jumped into her throat. He got up and quickly crossed the room, wrapping his arms around her. His green sweatshirt was soft against her hands, and he was so warm. He smelled like home.

She was crying into his shoulder, and he was whispering “shhh” and “I’ll fix this I have to fix this” and “I’m so sorry” into her hair. Percy looked back at Sally and she nodded. Percy took Annabeth’s hand and led her to his room. He pulled her down onto the bed and they laid there staring at each other, the only light illuminating their faces coming from the city outside his window.

“Annabeth, I promise I’ll do whatever it takes to fix this. Maybe if we hunt down all the monsters they want us to, they’ll make us mortal again. Maybe that’s possible,” Percy said.

“I don’t know,” she whispered. “But I promise you this: I’ll do whatever it takes to make the gods think I’m worthy of immortality so I can be there with you. If I don’t do it in this life, I’ll choose to be reborn, and I’ll keep trying until they do. We’ll be together again Percy. We have to be.”

They were quiet for a few minutes. “Would you have really joined the Hunters?” He asked.

“I don’t think so. They were so strong, and great, and it was an out for everything I was worried about and all my responsibilities. But I wouldn’t have fit in well enough. I don’t dislike men, obviously,” he laughed at that. “I would have missed you, and Grover, and my brothers. I would have missed Camp. Camp is my home. So no, I wouldn’t have.”

Percy nodded, though he looked perturbed. “What?”

“Maybe it would have been better. That way, I would’ve accepted immortality earlier… Oh. No. I wouldn’t have. I would be dead…” She looked at him, confused. “The knife during the Battle of Manhattan. You stopped it. I would be dead without you.”

“You don’t know that. Little things could have gone differently that wouldn’t have had that moment. But that doesn’t matter. If I had to choose between us being immortal friends, maybe seeing each other once every thirty years or so, or getting to love you with all my heart for just a few, I would choose loving you. Every time.”

They laid together into the night, whispering memories and placing soft kisses across each other’s skin. Finally, Percy drifted off to sleep. She didn’t realize gods slept. But here was her boy, drooling like always.

She slipped out of his grasp and over to his desk. She grabbed a piece of paper and a pencil.

Percy-

It will be okay someday. I know gods can’t date mortals, but they can visit. See me when you can, sweetheart. I’ll always wait for you. And I’ll fight to prove my worth, in every life. We’ll be together again. I love you so much, my Seaweed Brain.

Love,

Wise Girl

She slipped out of her apartment just as the sun started to rise.

The history books, which have almost completely ignored the contribution of the Negro in American history, have only served to intensify the Negroes’ sense of white supremacy. All too many Negroes and whites are unaware of the fact that the first American to shed blood in the revolution which freed this country from Britain oppression was a black seaman named Crispus Attucks. Negroes and whites are almost totally oblivious of the fat that it was a Negro physician, Dr, Daniel Hale Williams, who performed the first successful operation on the heart in America, and that another Negro physician, Dr. Charles Drew, was largely responsible for developing the method of separating blood plasma and storing it on a large scale, a process that saved thousands of lives in World War II and has made possible many of the important advances in postwar medicine. History books have virtually overlooked the many Negro scientists and inventors who have enriched American life. Although a few refer to George Washington Carver, whose research in agricultural products helped to revive the economy of the South when the throne of King Cotton began to totter, they ignore the contribution of Norbert Rillieux, whose invention of an evaporating pan revolutionized the process of sugar refining. How many people know that the multimillion-dollar United Shoe Machinery Company developed from the shoe-lasting machine invented in the last century by a Negro from Dutch Guiana, Jan Matzeliger; or that Granville T. Woods, an expert in electric motors, whose many patents speeded the growth and improvement of the railroads at the beginning of this century, was a Negro?

Even the Negroes’ contribution to the music of America is sometimes overlooked in astonishing ways. Two years ago my oldest son and daughter entered an integrated school in Atlanta. A few months later my wife and I were invited to attend a program entitled “music that has made America great.” As the evening unfolded, we listened to the folk songs and melodies of the various immigrant groups. We were certain that the program would end with the most original of all American music, the Negro spiritual. But we were mistaken. Instead, all the students, including our children, ended the program by singing “Dixie.”

As we rose to leave the hall, my wife and I looked at each other with a combination of indignation and amazement. All the students, black and white, all the parents present that night, and all the faculty members had been victimized by just another expression of America’s penchant for ignoring the Negro, making him invisible and making his contributions insignificant. I wept within that night. I wept for my children and all black children who have been denied a knowledge of their heritage; I wept for all white children, who, through daily miseducation, are taught that the Negro is an irrelevant entity in American society; I wept for all the white parents and teachers who are forced to overlook the fact that the wealth of cultural and technological progress in America is a result of the commonwealth of inpouring contributions.

The tendency to ignore the Negro’s contribution to American life and strip him of his personhood is as old as the earliest history books and as contemporary as the morning’s newspaper. To offset this cultural homicide, the Negro must rise up with an affirmation of his own Olympian manhood. Any movement for the Negro’s freedom that overlooks this necessity is only waiting to be buried.

Hello, i'm new to HP and you seem to have very good advice on things! What would you say are some general associated colors & plants for chthonic deities/spirits? I heard poppies and the color red are good, but I'm not entirely sure. On a side note, why is incense suggested not to be used? Sorry for all the questions!! (@<@);

I’ve not yet read anything about chthonic vs ouranic in a scholarly text yet, but I’m fairly certain the distinction is probably less exact than people make it out to be, considering how disparate Greek religion was. I suspect most chthonic rituals were actually rather heavily guarded, as Persephone and Plouton weren’t sacrificed to all that often, Persephone was usually involved in mystery cults. The exceptions would be Hekate and Demeter, but Hekate’s cult varied widely based on geography and Demeter is still an Olympian.

Incense is not suggested because it rises and thus practically doesn’t get down to the Underworld where chthonic deities are. I’ve seen something about wine not being good for chthonic festivals but I can’t see a clear reason and have yet to see it in a scholarly text so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Its honestly less a deity than a ritual is chthonic, and that usually means that it isn’t partaken in by mortals and otherwise involves weird things. In the Thesmophoria pigs were thrown into pits and left to rot, and then retrieved and sacrificed to Demeter and Persephone, for instance. And the rites were restricted to adult women.

The main question is whether you are going Reconstructionist, in which case I’d advise you to research whatever ritual or festival you’re celebrating, or Revivalist, in which case you can generally use your judgement for things.
