A/N I was just thinking what would happen if demigods used their talents in the mortal world and I thought of this.

Chapter 1: The Competition
This story takes place right after the second Titan war. Percy made the gods swear to claim their children and minor gods have cabins in Camp half-blood.
We had won! I made the right choice; although Luke died, we won the war. Luke died a hero's death; no one mentioned he was the traitor. We mourned for the dead and burned their shrouds on Olympus. We all relaxed form the burned we carried from the moment I went to Camp half-blood, well I did. It was nice not having to worry that you have to make the right choice or else the world is going to fall in the hands of Kronos. All the remaining campers left Olympus to go back to camp in a better mood than when they left camp to fight. We hoped we all can have a good night sleep.
Surprisingly, our camp was barely touched. There was not much damage, only minor fires in the forest; ones that a demigod son of Poseidon could put out even in his sleep.
Once I put out all the fire all the campers went to bed.
I woke up with the sun in my eyes shining brightly. I haven't been this free in a long time. Chiron mentioned that there is going to be a council meeting to do a debriefing on the war after breakfast.
I personally think that this camp needs renovation. Like seriously, we just fought the second Titan War, don't you think we should get a renovation to upgrade the camp and give it a new look and feel? We need a change, to forget the bad and start clean and fresh. I need to mention that in the meeting.
I got dressed and went to breakfast. I sacrificed to Poseidon and ate in silence. Sometimes I like being and an only child because of all the attention given to you, but sometimes it gets really lonely.
I went to the big house for the meeting. As usual our table is the ping pong table. I sat near the front which is beside Chiron and Annabeth sat next to me. Mr.D was on the other side on Chiron. Thalia was next to Mr.D to represent Zeus and another hunter was there to represent Artemis. There was Nico (Hades), Clarisse (Ares), Will Solace (Apollo), Miranda Gardiner (Demeter), Jake Mason (Hephaestus), Drew (Aphrodite), the Stroll Brothers (Hermes), and Pollux (Dionysus).
"Ok now that we are all here we can start," said Chiron.
"Yeah, and get this over with. As you know we won the war thanks to Peter here. Everyone did well... blah...blah...blah...blah...blah... and we are done," said Dionysus.
I have a feeling Chiron really really wanted to roll his eyes at him. I got so use to it I don't even care about him saying my name wrong anymore.
Dionysus got up and left and everyone else stayed put. We all probably know that Chiron will have something to say.
"Okay so first off, we really need to congratulate ourselves and especially Percy on winning the war. Most of the Titans have been locked up to their original prisons which is mainly Tartarus with added security so they don't get out again. The remaining Titans are either the peaceful ones or they have fled and hid themselves. The gods are trying to fulfill Percy's wish so therefore the minor gods are too have cabins. Any ideas on how to arrange the cabins?"
"I think Hades' and Hestia's cabins should be 13 and 14 which will be at the end of the U. Then the minor gods should make a fan like shape facing Zeus' and Hera's cabin. So it kind of resembles the amphitheatre," suggested Annabeth.
We all murmured thinking about it, and nodded in agreement. It would look nice and would most likely please the Olympian gods. It would still look like the minor gods are paying respect to the major gods while being recognized.
"I also have a suggestion," I said. "I think we should renovate camp. Change it up a bit. Upgrade the buildings and equipment. Although the Hermes cabin will not be as full because of my wish I still think that some cabins are a bit overcrowded. Don't you think? Like Ares cabin now has like 15 campers. More are going to come everyday, even demigods less than 10 years old. We need to make sure the cabins are big enough."
"If we make one cabin bigger we need to make all the cabins bigger," said Annabeth.
"I was think that the minor gods should have cabins the size we have right now (which holds about 6 bunk beds to make 12 campers) and have the 14 major god's cabin bigger to at least be able to accommodate 40 campers each."
"40! None of the cabins holds 40 people. I don't think a god will have 40 kids at a time."
"Look at the Ares cabin they already have 15 campers and it is just after the war. What did they have before the war? 20? 25? Remember gods are required to get their kids to camp by the age of 12 and claim them by 13. There will be a lot more coming."
"Yeah... but... 40?" stuttered Annabeth. Yes I made Annabeth stutter!
"Oh yeah, there will probably be baby bloom coming because since the war is over the gods will probably date mortals more frequently. They will go for the excuse 'the war has taken many heroes' lives' and will over do themselves and produce a lot of demigod babies to 'refill the ranks'."
"Well thought out Percy, never knew that you actually pay attention in history class. It is true that after world war two that some countries have baby blooms, I do except that to happen here as well. Especially after next week's celebration that Olympus is putting up for winning the war. All that alcohol will make the gods do some things that will not be mentioned here," said Chiron.
"Well then why not make a mansion while we are at it. 40 campers!" said Annabeth sarcastically. "There won't be privacy if there is that many or you face an empty mega room if there isn't many."
"Good idea Annabeth, totally," I said, ignoring her sarcasm.
"DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA HOW MUCH IT COST TO BUILD SUCH THINGS?" yelled Annabeth. "Not to mention you wanted to upgrade the whole camp and build over 50 more cabins for the minor gods."
"I have an idea, we can go fund raising! Let's see, we all should have two years to earn as much as possible. The cabin that has the earned the most money wins something," I suggested.
"Not a bad idea really, but how are you going to earn millions of dollars?" asked Will.
I gave them a mischievous smile and said, "You can do anything you want to earn the money as long as it is legal. I will give you a suggestion; use your special abilities your godly parent gave you. The competition will end at September of 2008." (A/N Right now it is the end of August in 2006)
"Okay so does everyone agree?" asked Chiron.
Everyone nods their head except for Thalia, the hunter.
"What's wrong?" I asked.
"Hunters won't be staying here so we would not participate." Thalia said while the other hunter nodded.
"What about the minor gods' children?" asked Annabeth.
"I think we should not have them participate it this cause there aren't that many yet and we should give them this as a gift (renovate camp and all) to say that we are sorry that we never fully gave you recognition."
"Okay so, there are 8 cabins involved out of 14, right? Artemis, Zeus, Hera and Hestia are not part of it. Who should be the director/coach/ trainer if you are to sign up for something like a sports team? It shouldn't be me cause if these competition happen again 30 years from now I won't change, won't grow old and people will notice," Chiron said.
"Our new oracle of course! Especially she can help full in forms that we can't with our dyslexia." I said.
"Did I just hear that I was mentioned?" Rachel asked, walking in.
"Yes you were. We have a competition and you are more presentable in the mortal world than Chiron. You will be the one to go out and say that you trained all these great people while it is actually Chiron. Chiron will be the one that keeps track of all the progress we make and all the administrative things while you will just do the presenting part in the mortal world."
"Sounds good to me," said Rachel, with a knowing smile. I think she already has a vision on the most likely winner. I hope it is me!
"We still haven't decided on the prize yet," said Connor Stroll.
"Hmmm... Let's say that the cabin that wins will not have chores for a year," said Chiron.
"We are sooo in," the eight of us said.
"The renovations will start after the competition, but minor gods' cabins will start now. Annabeth since you are the official Olympian Architect you will start designing the cabins," said Chiron
It was lunch and everyone was starting to get back to their old self but some was still mourning for their lost siblings.
"I have an announcement to make. The senior counselors and I have agreed to put up a cabin competition. This competition will last two year, which means it will end in September 2008. The objective is to raise money to renovate camp. This will only be for the major gods' children because we want to give the minors a gift to say sorry that we never gave you full recognition. You can do anything as long as it is legal and NO manipulating the mist! Anyone found breaking the rules will be disqualified. The preventative for this camp in the mortal world will be our oracle, Rachel. The winning cabin will not have to do chores for a whole year. LET THE COMPETITION BEGIN!"
We all cheered and everyone started planning on what will get them the most money to win the competition.
I already know what I am going to do. This is going to be easy, especially with my talent over water.
