MY FAVE PERCABETH MOMENTS
The Last Olympian
Annabeth ran in right behind him, and I'll admit my heart did a little relay race in my chest when I saw her. It's not that she tried to look good. We'd been doing so many combat missions lately, she hardly brushed her curly blond hair anymore, and she didn't care what clothes she was wearing - usually the same old orange camp T-shirt and jeans, and once in a while her bronze armor. Her eyes were stormy gray. Most of the time we couldn't get through a conversation without tryign to strangle each other. Still, just seeing her made me feel fuzzy in the head. Last summer, before Luke turned into Kronos and everything went sour, there had been a few times when I thought maybe...well, that we might get past the strangle-each-other phase.
Annabeth wiped a tear from her cheek. "I'm glad you're not dead, Seaweed Brain."
We locked eyes. I thought of a different time last summer, under Mount St. Helens, when Annabeth thought I was going to die, and she kissed me.
I found myself staring at her, which was stupid since I'd seen her a billion times. She and I were about the same height this summer, which was a relief. Still, she seemed so much more mature. It was kind of intimidating. I mean, sure, she'd always been cute, but she was starting to be seriously beautiful.
"You know..." She brushed her hair behind her ear, like she does when she's nervous. "This whole thing with Beckendorf and Silena. It kind of makes you think. About...what's important. About losing people who are important."
"Hold on, Seaweed Brain." It was Annabeth's voice, much clearer now. "You're not getting away from me that easily.
She frowned. "What is it?
"She said to tell Percy: 'Remember the rivers.' And, um, something about staying away from her daughter.
Annabeth didn't look convinced. "Just be careful. I don't want anything to happen to you. I mean, because we need you for the battle."
Before I could lose my courage, I said, "Don't I get a kiss for luck? It's kind of a tradition, right?"
Once she was gone, I knelt next to Annabeth and felt her forehead. She was still burning up.
I pulled her up and we lay trembling on the pavement. I didn't realize we had our arms around each other until she suddenly tensed.
Luke hardly paid me any attention. He stepped toward Annabeth, but I put myself between him and her.
I glanced back. Annabeth was trying not to meet my eyes. Her face was pale. I flashed back to two years ago, when I'd thought she was going to take the pledge to Artemis and become a Hunter. I'd been on the edge of a panic attack, thinknig that I'd lose her. now, she looked pretty much the same way.
"And my daughter?"
Page 372-374(and my favorite part in the series! Eep!)
"Hey." Anabeth slid next to me on the bench. "Happy birthday."
Camp went late that summer. It lasted two more weeks, right up to the start of a new school year, and I have to admit they were the best two weeks of my life.
"You're still my best friend."
Annabeth, thank goodness, would be staying in New York. She'd gotten permission from her parents to attend a boarding school in the city so she could be close to Olympus and oversee the rebuilding efforts.
The Battle of the Labyrinth
"Think positive. Tomorrow you're off to camp! After orientation, you've got your date-"
Annabeth stared at me for a second. Then she turned and took off.
Annabeth nodded. Despite how serious she was acting, I was happy she wasn't mad at me anymore. and I kind of liked the fact that she'd broken the rules to come sit next to me.
Quintus kept rattling off names until he said, "Percy Jackson with Annabeth Chase."
Annabeth's hand slipped into mine. Under different circumstances, I would've been embarrassed, but here in the dark I was glad to know where she was. It was about the only thing I was sure of.
Her hair had come loose and was hanging in a tangled blond curtain around her face. Her gray eyes looked almost black.
The Infamous Page 203(and my favorite part in this book! Imagine this in a movie scene. Dramatic music is playing and the wind is blowing harshly!)
"Put your cap back on," I said. "Get out!"
Annabeth turned to face the audience. She looked terrible. Her eyes were puffy from crying, but she managed to say, "He was probably the bravest friend I've ever had. He..." Then she saw me. Her face went blood red. "He's right there!"
Annabeth glared at me. "You are the single most annoying person I have ever met!" And she stormed out of the room.
"We'll try, Ms. Jackson," Annabeth said. "Keeping your son safe is a big job, though." She folded her arms and glared out the kitchen window. I picked at my napkin and tried not to say anything.
Annabeth stood. "The fire's getting low. I'll go look for some more scraps while you guys talk strategy." And she marched off into the shadows.
Kampê landed on the Athena command tent, smashing it flat. I ran after her and found Annabeth at my side, keeping pace, her sword in hand.
Annabeth and I pretty much skirted around each other. I was glad to be with her, but it also kind of hurt, and it hurt when I wasn't with her, too.(Aww, now that's what I call a cute Percabeth moment!)
"I'm sorry," Annabeth told me. "I-I should get back. I'll keep in touch."
"You'd better go," Poseidon said. "But, Percy, one last thing you should know. that incident at Mount St. Helens..."
The Titan's Curse
I looked nervously at Annabeth, then at the groups of girls who were roaming the gym.
He went on asking questions. did I fight a lot with Thalia, since she was a daughter of Zeus? (I didn't answer that one.) If Annabeth's mother was Athena, the goddess of wisdom, then why didn't Annabeth know better than to fall off a cliff? (I tried not to strangle Nico for asking that one. Because I love her and she is not ever stupid)Was Annabeth my girlfriend? (At this point, I was ready to stick the kid in a meat-flavored sack and throw him to the wolves.)just because you like her, you know you wanted to say yes and scream it to the world)
I took Annabeth's baseball cap out of my backpack and set it on my nightstand. I'd give it to her when I found her. And I would find her.(So determined, Aphrodite, thank you!)
Then I noticed a pink silk scarf with a label attached to it. I picked up the tag and tried to read it:
SCARF OF THE GODDESS APHRODITE
I stared at the scarf. I'd totally forgotten about it. Two years ago, Annabeth had ripped this scarf out of my hands and said something like, Oh, no. no love magic for you!
But Thalia held out her spear. "You want some, Seaweed Brain?"
"I don't have much time," my mom said. "Percy, whatever you decide, I love you. And I know you'll do what's best for Annabeth."
When she smiled at me, just for a moment she looked a little like Annabeth(Of course, because youy think Annabeth is beautiful just like Aphrodite, hey, her name has Aphro in it, like afro, hehe!). Then like this television actress I used to have a crush on in fifth grade. Then...well, you get the idea.
I half expected Mrs. Chase to turn into a raving lunatic at the mention of her stepdaughter, but she just pursed her lips and looked concerned. "All right. Do on up to the study and i'll bring you some food." She smile at me. "Nice meeting you, Percy. I've heard a lot about you."(Of course she would)
"I don't know," she admitted. "But thank you for rescuing me."
A feeling of panic seized me. "Annabeth," I said under my breath. "Don't."
"Was she giving you a hard time?" Annabeth asked.
The Sea of Monsters
In social studies, while we were drawing latitude/longitude maps, I opened my notebook and stared at the photo inside-my friend Annabeth on vacation in Washington D.C. She was wearing jeans and a denim jacket over her orange Camp Half-Blood T-shirt. Her blond hair was pulled back in a bandanna. She was standing in front of the Lincoln Memorial with her arms crossed, looking extremely pleased with herself, like she'd personally designed the place. See, Annabeth wants to be an architect when she grows up, so she's always visiting famous monuments and stuff. She's weird that way. She'd emailed me the picture after spring break, and every once in a while I'd look at it just to remind myself she was real and Camp Half-Blood hadn't just been my imagination.
Annabeth punched him in the nose and knocked him flat. "And you," she told him, "lay off my friend."
"Annabeth..." I stammered. "How did you...how long have you..."
Now, under different circumstances, I would've been really happy to see her. we'd made our peace last summer, despite the fact that her mom was Athena and didn't get along with my dad. I'd missed Annabeth probably more than I'd wanted to admit.
The only good thing about our punishment was that it gave Annabeth and me a common enemy and lots of time to talk.
"A half-blood hideout." I looked at Annabeth in awe. 'You made this place?"
I almost didn't recognize her. she was wearing a sleeveless silk dress like C.C.'s, only white. Her blond hair was newly washed and combed and braided with gold. Worst of all, she was wearing makeup, which I never thought Annabeth would be caught dead in. I mean, she looked good. Really good. I probably would've been tongue-tied if I could've said anything except reet, reet, reet. But there was also something totally wrong about it. It just wasn't Annabeth.
Before I could figure out how to apologize for being such an idiot, she tackled me with a hug, then pulled away just as quickly. "I'm glad you're not a guinea pig."
She started to sob-I mean horrible, heartbroken sobbing. she put her head on my shoulder and i held her.
Which reminded me...I still owed the gods a debt.
"Percy is too nice," Annabeth grumbled, but I couldn't help thinking that maybe, just maybe, she was a little impressed. I'd surprised her, anyway. And that wasn't easy to do.
Tyson blushed. The crowd cheered. Annabeth planted a kiss on my cheek. The roaring got a lot louder after that.
The Lightning Thief
The last thing I remember is collapsing on a wooden porch, looking at a ceiling fan circling above me, moths flying around a yellow light, the stern faces of a familiar-looking bearded man and a pretty girl, her blond hair curled like a princess's. They both looked down at me, and the girl said, "He's the one. He must be."
She was probably my age, maybe a couple of inches taller, and a whole lot more athletic looking. wither her deep tan and her curl blond hair, she was almost exactly what I thought a stereotypical California girl would look like, except her eyes ruined the image. They were startling gray, like storm clouds; pretty, but intimidating, too, as if she were analyzing the best way to take me down in a fight.
"I've been waiting a long time for a quest, seaweed brain," she said. "Athena is no fan of Poseidon, but if you're going to save the world, I'm the best person to keep you from messing up.
After a few minutes, Annabeth fell in line next to me. "Look, I..." Her voice faltered. "I appreciate your coming back for us, okay? That was really brave."
"You're pretty good with that knife," I said.
"Forget it," I said. "You're impossible."
I looked at Annabeth, daring her to criticize.
I tried not to drool in my sleep, since Annabeth was sitting right next to me.
I wanted to make Annabeth feel better, but I didn't know how.
"Are you kidding?" she looked at me as if I'd just dropped from the moon. Her cheeks were bright red.
"Hey," Annabeth said, "I'm sorry for freaking out back at the water park, Percy."
"So if the gods fight," I said, "will things line up the way they did with the Trojan War? will it be Athena versus Poseidon?"
"Why can't you place a blessing like that on us?" I asked.
Annabeth grabbed hold of my hand. Under normal circumstances, this would've embarrassed me, but I understood how she felt. She wanted reassurance that somebody else was alive on this boat.
Annabeth sat next to me, holding my nectar glass and dabbing a washcloth on my forehead.
She pursed her lips. "You won't try anything stupid during the school year, will you? At least...not without sending me an Iris-message?"
She touched Thalia's pine tree, then allowed herself to be lead over the crest and into the mortal world.
The Demigod Files
The Bronze Dragon
On the blue team were Hephaestus's cabin, Apollo, Hermes, and me—the only demigod in Poseidon's cabin. The bad news was that for once, Athena and Ares—both war god cabins—were against us on the red team, along with Aphrodite, Dionysus, and Demeter. Athena's cabin held the other flag, and my friend Annabeth was their captain.
Annabeth is not somebody you want as an enemy.
Right before the game, she strolled up to me. "Hey, seaweed brain."
"Will you stop calling me that?"
She knows I hate that name, mostly because I never have a good comeback. She's the daughter of Athena, which doesn't give me a lot of ammunition. I mean,Owl-head and Wise Girl are kind of lame insults.
"You know you love it." She bumped me with her shoulder, which I guess was supposed to be friendly, but she was wearing full Greek armor, so it kind of hurt. Her gray eyes sparkled under the helmet. Her blond ponytail curled around one shoulder. It was hard for anyone to look cute in combat armor, but Annabeth pulled it off. (OMG SO ADORABLE)
"Tell you what." She lowered her voice. "We're going to crush you tonight, but if you pick a safe position—like right flank, for instance—I'll make sure you don't get pulverized too much."
"Gee, thanks," I said, "but I'm playing to win."
She smiled. "See you on the battlefield."
She jogged back to her teammates, who all laughed and gave her highfives. I'd never seen her so happy, like the chance to beat me up was the best thing that had ever happened to her.
Beckendorf walked up with his helmet under his arm. "She likes you, man."
"Sure," I muttered. "She likes me for target practice."
"Nah, they always do that. A girl starts trying to kill you, you know she's into you."
"Makes a lot of sense."
Beckendorf shrugged. "I know about these things. You ought to ask her to the fireworks."
I couldn't tell if he was serious. Beckendorf was lead counselor for Hephaestus. He was this huge African American dude with a permanent scowl, muscles like a pro ballplayer, and hands calloused from working in the forges his whole life. He'd just turned eighteen and was on his way to NYU in the fall. Since he was older, I usually listened to him about stuff, but the idea of asking Annabeth to the Fourth of July fireworks down at the beach—like, the biggest dating event of the summer—made my stomach do somersaults.
"If I was going to pick one person in the world to reattach my head," I said, "I'd pick you."
I just blurted it out—to give her confidence, I guess—but immediately I realized it sounded pretty stupid.
"Awww. . ." Silena sniffled and wiped her eyes. "Percy, that is so sweet!"
Annabeth blushed. "Shut up, Silena. Hand me your dagger."
I was afraid Annabeth was going to stab me with it.
Annabeth came up to me and squeezed my shoulder. "Hey, seaweed brain, you okay?"
"Fine... I guess." I was thinking how close I'd come to being chopped into demigod hash in the dragon's mouth.
"You did great." Annabeth's smile was a lot nicer than that stupid dragon's.
"You, too," I said shakily.
Watching them, with my arm around Annabeth for support, I felt pretty uncomfortable. I silently cursed Beckendorf for being so brave, and I don't mean for facing the dragon. After three years, he'd finally gotten the courage to ask Silena Beauregard out. It wasn't fair.
"You know," Annabeth said as we struggled along, "it wasn't the bravest thing I've ever seen."
I blinked. Had she been reading my thoughts?
"Um... what do you mean?"
Annabeth gripped my wrist as we stumbled through a shallow creek. "You stood up to the dragon so Beckendorf would have his chance to jump—now that was brave."
"Or pretty stupid."
"Percy, you're a brave guy," she said. "Just take the compliment. I swear, it is so hard?"
We locked eyes. Our faces were, like, two inches apart. My chest felt a little funny, like my heart was trying to do jumping jacks.
"So..." I said. "I guess Silena and Charlie are going to the fireworks together."
"I guess so," Annabeth agreed.
"Yeah," I said. "Um, about that—"
I don't know what I would've said, but just then, three of Annabeth's siblings from the Athena cabin burst out of the bushes with their swords drawn.
But Annabeth just smiled and put us in jail. As she was heading back to the front line, she turned and winked. "See you at the fireworks?"
She didn't even wait for my answer before darting off into the woods.
I looked at Beckendorf. "Did she just... ask me out?"
He shrugged, completely disgusted. "Who knows with girls? Give me a haywire dragon, any day."

Percy Jackson And The Olympians Couple List
Percabeth- Okay, they are the cutest couple ever. Seriously. Every single time i think about them, I want to cry. So adorable. I despise FanFics that have them break up. Its so sad!! And most say, 'Annabeth was making out with my brother.' NO!! That will never happen! PERCY AND ANNABETH ARE THE PERFECT COUPLE AND NOTHING WILL CHANGE THAT THEY WILL BE TOGETHER FOREVER!!!!!!!!!
Thalico- Okay I gotta admit, they are the second cutest couple. They're so adorable! And yeah, yeah, yeah, Thalia's a hunter, but that just can prove she loves him evn more by quitting for him!!!! I might write a fanfic about him.
Jeyna- Adorabe. Thats French. Anyway, I have a theory on the Jason-Reyna-Piper love triangle(HA! As IF!) But i will elaborate at the end of my list.
Frazel- Okay, they're AWESOME together. Because the whole Sammy=Leo thing might way opinions, just think how cute they were at the end of the book. It was COMPLETELY adores.
Liper- I think Piper is a b, pardon my almost language. But only when she is fauning over Jason and whining and threatening and being helpless and useless. But I think if she dated Leo, he would bring out the awesome side in her. She could be funny and helpful and really good at giving beauty/love advice.
Charisse- Chris and Clarisse. So cute. I like how Clarisse finally shows her human side.
Tratie- Katie Gardner and Travis Stoll. They hate eachother in the book, but, Hate is the Mirror of LOVE!!! They're so cute
Ciranda- I noticed how its always Travis and Katie but Connor, nor Miranda Gardner, Katie's sister, are never with anybody. And what could be more perfct than SIBLING COUPLES!!!!!
Beckilena- No explanation needed. They are so cute. Our tragic little couple. BAWL!!!
Malacey- I don't know why. I just think Malcom and Lacey would be cute together. She seems like she may not be such an airhead after all. And she is nice and normal.
Tylla- Tyson and Ella! Its perfect!
Gruniper- Also. Adorable! They are so cute they are going to raise children that are trees but have satyr legs or green satyrs!
Thuke- Meh. Not so great but I can cope.
Pothena- They're okay.
Lazel- This one makes sense but I'm still shipping Frazel.
Conatie- this is reversing the other couples
Tiranda-same as the last one.
Prachel- Ew. Percy belongs with ANNABETH
Lukabeth-Ew. annabeth belongs with PERCY
Perlia- EWWWWWW. No!!!!! Disgusting! Percabeth. Yay. Perlia is weird because they just don't work.
Friper- Ewwwww. Who came up with that anyway?!
Leyna- They are complete opposites, he's a scrawny Greek, she's a pratorian Roman, and she belongs with Jason. Ew.
Octylla- BARF!! Hylla and OCTAVIAN?! HE SHOULD JUST GO CRAWL IN A HOLE AND DIE THERE HE DOESNT DESERVE A girl!!!!
Octachel- She is a million times more awesome and he is a little scrawny rat who deserves nothing but The Fields of Punishment. Hmph.
Absolutely Positutely Unnacceptable Horific The-world-will-end-they're-so-bad Couple
JIPER( ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew!)-Ok, so first off, I want to clear the air with this whole jiper-loving thing. No. It can't happen. It can't. Because try and see it from a logical perspective. Jason is sorta like Percy's roman equivalent. And Reyna is kinda like Annabeth. So how would y'all feel if Percy woke up on a bus and was holding hands with Hazel? Huh? No. I bet most of you would chop your own heads off if that happened. I bet Annabeth would kill Hazel, Percy, and herself if that happened. So think about how Reyna will feel. And yes. I know. Someone pointed out to me that Reyna said that they weren't a couple. So what? She was most likely lying. Because she said 'we might've been.' In Reyna speak, that probably a 'yes'. So I get you think jiper is better, but Piper is rude (well, the way she thinks is rude) and she just expects Jason to drop everything and love her. He is such a bad Greek its not even funny. Hate is not a strong enough word for what I feel about Percy being roman. So if piper messes up the whole system… well then the books will be ruined. And they are so bad together. SHe is so helpless he is so powerful. Ugh!!!!!!!! And Reyna and Jason are SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jilly (James/ Lilly) - This is my favorite one. It's so cute how they went from being enemies to lovers! And how Lilly fell for James even after all the pranks and tricks and scuffles they went through! I love it!
Ginarry (Ginny/Harry) -Absolutely adorable! I LOVE them! What I love about it is that it took Harry long to realize it. He never thought about it until he saw Ginny kissing Dean. And Ginny, well I'm pretty sure she knew all along, but saw Harry wasn't interested and tried to move on. But in the end they are absolutely perfect.
Hermiro (Hermione/Ron)- This one is so cute because usually in books the main character gets the girl, never the best friend. And plus, even though they fight a lotm they are still perfect!
