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.
another headcannon with Nikki:
fRANK APOLOGIZING TOO MUCH like he’d apologize for stuff that aren’t even his fault
Frank gets slapped; “sorry”
Frank gets punched; “I’m sorry”
Frank gets hit by a truck; “Oh my I’m so sorry”
Frank gets brutally murdered; his last words: “I’m so dearly sorry it was my fault”
all I can say is frank is such a bean
