Discalimer: Do I really need one? Its mythology! Fine. I don't own it. :P
Chapter One: The Visitors
Athena, goddess of wisdom and battle strategy, was running around Olympus. She was freaking out. It was almost time for the yearly meeting between gods, and this year, Athena was determined to keep it calm. Last year hadn't gone so well. Athena, or any of the other gods, didn't want to deal with that again. Lets just say Poseidon got upset and most of the gods found seaweed in places seaweed should never be.
"Athena!" A familiar voice said.
"Ugh. Hermes, what now. Don't you have some messages to carry or something to steal?' Athena asked, whirling around.
He glared at her. "Shut up. No, we've got a problem. An emergency!"
"Oh no. Not the day before the meeting! What is it? Did Aphrodite let her doves lose in Artemis's room again? I swear, if she complains to me one more time about the feathers in her clothes, I am going to lose it,' Athena said.
Hermes looked at her weirdly. "No, no, no. Its Apollo!"
"A busted lyre does not count as an emergency, Hermes."
"No, just listen-"
"A broken bow doesn't count either."
"Athena, can you please shut your mouth for a second and hear me out!" Hermes said. Athena looked suprised, but she nodded. "Good. Apollo's sun chariot has taken an emergency stop. Helios is taking over for now. He's brought some weird people with dark skin and dark hair and enough bling to make Aphrodite jealous. Its real gold, too!"
"Probably just some mortals Apollo brought home...I've told him about this. He's got to stop fraternizing with humans," Athena said.
"The majority of them are male," Hermes said.
"Even worse," Athena said. "Its Apollo we're talking about, Hermes. This is Hyacinth all over again!"
"Thats not the point, Athena. They aren't mortals. At least, thats not what they say. They claim to be... they claim to be gods!" Hermes said.
"What? They shall be punished for such an act of disrespect! Impostering gods!" Athena said.
"Zeus is being alerted right now. Apollo's chariot crashed in the back garden. We must go!" Hermes said. They ran out of the castle and into the courtyard. The courtyard was huge, with multiple marble statues of various gods scattered around. In the middle, almost taking out a statue of Ares, was a smoking sun chariot. And I do mean smoking. The chariot was painted gold completely, even the pegasi were a lush golden color. It was flaming, literally. Flames danced on the edges of the chariot. The chariot was broken, with several wheels missing and the platform smashed.
A boy of fifteen with golden blonde hair and tanned skin in gold armor was standing next to the pegasi, looking grim. Athena recognized most of the people. She saw Artemis, with her dirty blonde hair and grim expression, and Aphrodite, with her flowing golden hair and ocean blue eyes, and a ton of other gods. Most of them were silent, all gathered in a circle around the chariot and Apollo. Some were conversing quietly with others, wondering about the unwexpected arrival. Athena couldn't get a good look at them through the croud. She and Hermes pushed through the croud, much to the gods and spirits annoyance.
Once they were at the front, Athena got a better look at them. They all had copper-colored skin and black hair. They all had gold jewelry and some of the girls had jewels beaded into their hair. Some had animals beside them; one girl had a cat, one boy had a falcon, and one boy had a crocodile. They didn't look like they were greek. They didn't even look mediteranean
There were twelve in all. Just like the olympians, Athena thought, seven boys, five girls.
"Who in the underworld are you?" Athena asked.
A boy about her age, fourteen, looked her way. "Thoth, god of wisdom."
"Who?" Athena asked. This boy could not think he was the god of wisdom.
"Athena's the goddess of wisdom," Hernes said.
"Athlena?" Thoth repeated. "Who is she?"
"Me, and its Uh-thee-nuh," Athena said, sounding out every syllable. "Get it right, Foff."
A small smile crossed his face. "Well played."
"Look, I don't know who you are, but I do know that we are the gods of Olympus. Not you," Artemis spoke up.
"What is an Olympus?" Thoth asked, saying the word as if it was the most ridiculous thing he'd heard in his life. Yep, this guy was really ticking Athena off.
"Were you born in a cave?" Artemis asked.
"Now, now, Artemis," a voice from behind the croud said. Hera, Queen of Olympus said. She stepped through the croud with Zeus trailing behind her. The gods gasped and bowed.
"Why are you bowing to her?" Thoth asked, looking at Hera in disgust. "She's no pharaoh."
Athena got up. "No, but she is the queen of this house, who could kill you at any moment."
"Athena, go easy on our...guests. They are obviously dilusional," Hera said.
"We are in no way dilusional," a girl said, hands on her hips, "and if you think you can kill us, your wrong! We're immortal!"
Zeus stepped up. "And just who do you think you are, Miss?" Zeus said.
"I think I'm Isis, goddess of magic," Isis said. "And you have no right to talk to me like-mmph!" she continued, but before she could say something she'd regret, a boy put his hand over her mouth.
"Sis, I think you should go easy on the insults. That guys got a lightning rod!" the boys said, eyeing Zeus's bolt. Isis took the boys hand off her and turned on him.
"Your the one that should be talking, Set, almighty god of chaos!" Isis said, gritting her teeth.
"Well excuse me for not wanting you to be fried, Sis!" Set shot back. Fighting broke out amongst the newcomers.
"WILL YOU PLEASE BE QUIET!" Zeus yelled. Insantly they all got quiet. "Thank you. Now, please introduce yourselves formally."
Thoth glared at me before saying, "I'm Thoth, god of wisdom."
"I'm Isis, goddess of magic," Isis said. I had a better look at her now. She was very beautiful. She had silky black hari braided with sapphires and rubies. She had a lavender dress on. He wrists wre decorated with gold jewelry.
"I'm Set, god of chaos," Set said. He had the same coppery skin and black hair. He had a red kilt on.
"I'm Sobek, god of crocodiles," the crododile guy said. He looked a lot like Set, thugh his eyes were beadier and his kilt was green.
"I'm Nephthys, goddess of rivers," a girl with blue beads in her hair said. He had a blue dress on like Isis's. They looked so much alike, they could be sisters. Actually, they probably were.
"I'm Osiris, heir to the throne after Ra passes on," a boy with shorter black hair and a dark blue kilt.
"I'm Tefnut, goddess of moisture," a girl with jades in her hair and a green dress said.
"I'm Shu, god of the air," a boy with longish black hair and a white kilt said.
"I'm Bastet, goddess of cats," a girl with gold threaded into her hair and a gold dress. Her cat beside her purred.
"I'm Anubis, god of funerals," the last boy said. He had a black kilt on.
"Where did you come from?" Zeus asked.
"Cairo," Thoth said.
"Where is Cairo?" Zeus asked.
"Egypt," Thoth answered.
"Where is Egypt?" Zeus asked.
"Across the Mediteranean," Thoth said. "You know where that is right?"
Zeus glared at him. "How did you get here?"
"Ra was taking us for a ride on his sun boat and we were knocked out of the sky. He is probably back in Egypt right now..." Thoth said.
"Hold up. Who is Ra? This is the second time you mentioned him," Athena said.
"He's our pharaoh," Thoth said.
"And I found them," Apollo said.
"Why'd you bring them here?" Artemis asked.
"Artemis!" Aphrodite scolded. "Don't scare the hot new guys away!"
Is she really trying to flirt with some new guys who claim to be gods from Egypt? Athena thought. She hasn't had her title stolen!
"Hermes, Aphrodite, why don't you go show the new gods to some guest rooms?" Zeus said.
"DAD!" Hermes whined.
"Do I have to?" Aphrodite asked.
"It wasn't really a suggestion," Zeus said.
"Fine..." Aphrodite and Hermes muttered. "C'mon egyptians..."
They followed them out of the courtyard. As soon as they were gone, Athena rounded on Apollo.
A/N: I liked that. Now just to clarify:
This is before PJO and KC. This is in ancient times.
And, I know the book may describe the gods different in PJO, but I think that as long as their in Greece, they look Greek. When they move to America, they look American. Same with the egyptians. Because really, in The Red Pyramid, Thoth is blonde. I mean, no egyptian is blonde! So yeah.
They are all in teenage form. Even Zeus.
So, yeah. Thats it. Tell me if you want me to continue it!
