Title: Half of Both Worlds

Author: Jedi Buttercup

Disclaimer: The words are mine; the worlds are not.

Summary: PG; BtVS/PJO. Percy raised his eyebrows at his friend.

Notes: Double drabble, challenge response. Contains spoilers through The Last Olympian. This is the last of this particular series; if I continue it, I'd prefer to do so as a proper, non-drabble story!

After they returned from Olympus, Annabeth showed Buffy to Artemis' cabin-- the Huntress had given permission after they'd talked to Hecate-- and Percy pulled Dawn aside for a moment.

"I know what a shock all this can be," he said. "And what she asked-- you know, Zeus offered to make me a god after the war with Kronos. But--"

"That wouldn't be living," Dawn replied with a watery smile.

"No, it wouldn't," he replied, glancing over to where Annabeth's blond hair and baseball cap were reemerging from Cabin Eight. Then he raised his eyebrows at his friend.

"You are going to stay here for vacation, though, right? I mean, I know your sister-- mother, whatever-- is this awesome fighter, but there's lots we can teach you, too."

Dawn studied him a moment, then nodded. "Yeah. I think so; the Slaying thing's always been hers, but now I have something that's mine, too." Then she snorted. "Plus, if I didn't? I don't even want to know what my friends would say; most of them are clear-sighted, too."

"Good," Percy smiled. "Come on, then; I'll race you to your cabin."

Her laughter followed them all the way across the strawberry fields.
