A/N: This is a progressive fic of a bunch of moments in Percabeth's lives, staring with the morning after their wedding and going until their death. It will include a bunch of fluffy and a bunch of sad shots, because even though they're fictional, they have a reality;)
The sun hit her closed eyelids and she sighed before rolling closer to her bedmate, snuggling under his arm. Seaweed Brain would sleep until noon left to his own devices but when he felt Annabeth's head on his chest he smiled in his haze. Somewhere in the back of his head he knew he should wake up but he simply pulled the girl closer and slipped back under the fog and back to sleep.
Annabeth smiled. Outside it was sunny and bright. Somehow her body had gotten used to the time change, because it was 9 in the morning, in Athens, Greece. Last night Percy had slipped the pretty diamond ring on her finger and said, "I do," and escorted her back to the rented apartment. The private ceremony had been romantic. Percy checked with her beforehand to make sure she didn't really care about the big white dress or the millions of people they had planned before eloping, but she had assured him that all she really cared about was escaping the hectic planning and marrying him.
He'd done something with his hair to make it slightly nicer and then wore nice pants instead of jeans, but that was all the effort he put in. Annabeth spent hours hiding away, trying to get her surprise dress—blue strapless—ready and her hair and nails perfect. They were married barefoot on the beach, just the two of them and the justice of the peace. And when they returned to the little apartment it was like their first night together. Slow and romantic, they loved on each other for hours, enjoying the intimacy and…just plain perfection of the moment.
She stared up at him, his peaceful expression. With her hand on his chest she drew little circles with her forefinger. His arm was under her neck and his hand was resting on the small of her back and she imagined that if he had been awake he would have been stroking the warm skin.
"Percy," she muttered. "Breakfast."
He didn't move.
She smirked. "Blue waffles?"
"Seriously?" he asked, his voice calm and disbelieving.
"If you can get the café downstairs to make 'em."
He grinned, his eyes still closed. "Worth a shot."
They moved off the bed, Annabeth taking the sheet with her and keeping it around her body. As she gathered the pretty little dress off the floor she became aware of Percy's eyes on her.
"How the Hades do you look even better the morning after?"
A blush crept over her cheeks. "Get dressed. I'm starving."
He winked. "I bet you are."
"Shut up, Seaweed Brain."
He laughed and pulled her close, kissing her sweetly. His hand grabbed hers and lifted it to look at the ring. Meeting her eyes, he kissed each other fingertips and finally the ring.
"I love you, Wise Girl."
"I love you, too, Seaweed Brain," she whispered, her heart in her throat.
He rested his forehead against hers. "Our parents are gonna kill us."
"Only because they didn't get to be there."
"What are we gonna do?"
"Mmm…they'll get over it," she whispered, tilting her head to kiss him. "And I'd rather not think about that now."
"What would you like to think about?" he rasped, twisting his fingers in her messy hair.
