Congratulations for stumbling across this fic of mine. It's meant to be a collection of cliché parodies, so don't take this as my serious writing. Now that that's out of the way, I hope you enjoy it!
My name is Talianna Rose. Call me Tally for short. Look, I didn't want to be a demigod. I didn't want to save the world. But apparently I have to.
I just discovered I was a daughter of Nyx, goddess of night. I'm destined to save the world, or so this prophecy says. I have long, beautiful black hair, unnaturally pale skin, and golden eyes.
When I was little, my mom gave me a spiked bracelet. She said to use it in a time of need, but I never used it until I turned fifteen. My dad was killed in a "car accident" with my mom, and I've been living on the run ever since. One day, I was in the woods and I found this huge serpenty thing. It had spikes, scales, and I was pretty sure it wasn't a bear.
"Rawrrrrr," it said. I remembered what my mom had said all those years ago and I got an idea. I unclasped my bracelet and it turned into this magical shield that had ninja throwing stars coming out of it. The monster thing immediately disintegrated into dust and I passed out.
When I woke up I was being carried by some kid in black, kind of cute I guess, but a little grumpy looking.
"What the heck?" I asked.
"Shut up, didn't you see the monster?" he said.
"What's your name?" I asked, annoyed.
"Nico di Angelo," he said.
"Well, nice to meet you, but where the fuck are we going?"
"The only place you can be safe," he said, and didn't talk after that. I flung my long, gorgeously glossy black hair over my shoulder in an indifferent way.
We got to this camp-looking place and the emo-looking Nico dude let me walk after that. I dusted myself off and asked why we were here.
"You're a demigod," he said. "Just go to the Big House, they'll explain." Then he ran away and I went to the huge house dominating the horizon. There was a centaur on the porch.
"Another one," he sighed. "I assume you were attacked by a monster,"
"Yeah. But I killed it."
"Hmmm." He looked me over and then gives a faint gasp. "Daughter of Nyx," he says. "This is not good."
"What is it?" I demanded, staring at him with intense golden eyes.
"Just follow me," he said, and I did. He rummaged through some stuff and handed me a piece of parchment. I read it in my head.
The menace that threatens Olympus shall rise
And bring with it the deceit of hurt and lies
The responsibility of the gods to save will fall
On the daughter of darkness to decide all.
My head felt a little light, and the centaur murmured, "Daughter of Nyx . . . goddess of darkness . . ." he paced around the room. I exited the room, feeling uncomfortable, and went to my cabin, a black stone one. There were no people inside, except for the Nico kid.
"Stalker much," I muttered as I set my stuff down on a bed. "What are you doing here?"
He grinned darkly. "Just saying hi to our new prophecy princess."
I ignored him and flopped down on my bed. "I just want to be normal," I said.
"We all did, but it gets better," Nico says to me, and walks out of my cabin, leaving me to ponder.
So now, I will offer you some help if one of your characters is suspiciously like Talianna.
Notice how a lot of things are unexplained, like how come Tally seems to accept everything very quickly and how she didn't bring anything, but she has stuff for her cabin.
She's also a Mary Sue, if you didn't notice, with beauty, a tragic past, and a bit of emo-gothness. Also, the whole "NicoxOC" thing is getting cliché, as is the "destined to save the world" plot.
