READ! IMPORTANT! Okay, Percy is still a son of Poseidon in this! He is NOT a son of Zeus! Why? Because I dislike Zeus in the books. This is based off the 2010 Clash of the Titans. Because Perseus and Io are cute together. Io will be Annabeth!
This will be different from the movie because I want Percy and Annabeth to have more chapters together. Hope you like it! Enjoy!
I do not own PJ or Clash of the Titans! The prologue was taken straight from the 2010 movie!
The oldest stories ever told are written in the stars. Stories of time before man and gods, when titans ruled the earth. The titans were powerful...but their reign was ended by their own sons, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades.
Zeus convinced his brother, Hades, to create a beast so strong it could defeat their parents. And from his own flesh, Hades gave birth to an unspeakable horror, the Kraken.
Zeus became king of the heavens. Poseidon, king of the seas. And Hades, tricked by Zeus, was left to rule the Underworld in darkness and in misery.
It was Zeus who created man and man's prayers fed the gods' immortality. But in time, mankind grew restless. They began to question the gods and, finally, rise up against them.
Into this world, a child was born. A boy who would change everything.
Chapter 1: Perseus
A wooden coffin rose to to the surface of the water. All sorts of designs covered it. Anyone could tell that the coffin came from someone with money.
Nearby, a fisherman's boat stood still. A fisher and his wife lived on their boat. The fisher's name was Chiron. He was in his forties. He and his wife, Rachel, were cleaning the deck of the boat.
The waves gently began moving the coffin toward the boat. Rachel saw the coffin and pointed, "Chiron! Look!"
Chiron looked to where Rachel was pointed and threw a fishing net over the side of the boat. The coffin floated right into the net. Chiron hulled the net back onto the boat.
Quickly, he took the two locks out of the side of the coffin. Chiron and Rachel pushed the lid off of the coffin. Inside laid a beautiful woman. Her hair was wet from the ocean water that had managed to get into the coffin. Both, Chiron and Rachel knew she was dead.
Lying on the woman's chest, was a baby. As the light filled the coffin, the baby began to cry. This woman must be his mother, Chiron thought.
The mother of the boy had wrapped him in a blanket before she passed away. "Oh, my dear! How long do you think this poor baby has been floating out there?" Rachel asked.
Gently, Chiron picked the baby up and tried to get him to stop crying. "Shh. Shh." Chiron rocked the baby boy in his arms.
As the sun began to go down, the fisherman's boat was passing an island. On the top of a mountain on the island, stood Annabeth. Her blonde hair was pulled back. Her stormy gray eyes watched the boat pass. "Perseus," Annabeth smiled.
Annabeth had watched over Perseus to be sure that he got into the hands of someone who would raise and take care of him. She was glad that Perseus was safe now.
The boy, Perseus, was sleeping in a small bed that Rachel had made up for him. In his sleep, he smiled. Chiron looked at Perseus. The boy was his son now. Chiron looked out over the sea. The water was restless. How strange, Chiron noted.
ten years later...
Perseus and his family were making diner on an island they just had discovered. Perseus had black hair that came to his shoulders now. His eyes were green like the sea. Perseus was looking out to sea. He loved the sea more than anything. It made him feel stronger.
His foster mother, Rachel, was working on making the the food. The waves crashed over rocks. He felt strange. Perseus put a hand on his heart.
Chiron saw that his son was worried and sat down next to Perseus. "What is it, son?" Chiron asked.
"I'll have a brother or a sister soon," Perseus said, not taking his eyes off the ocean.
Chiron sighed and nodded. "And you think we're going to love this child differently to the way we love you? Well, we won't," he assured Perseus.
"This child will be yours." Me...I'm no one's son." Perseus looked at his foster father.
"I am your father, Perseus. Rachel is your mother. And you will always be our son. The bond between is much more than flesh and bone. The love we have for you it's that love that gods and kings fight over," Chiron said. "I've never understood the gods. But even I don't question that you were saved for a reason. And some day, that reason is going to take you far away from here."
That made Perseus feel better.
"But not tonight. Eh?" Chiron smiled.
Perseus smiled back and nodded. Rachel came up behind Perseus. Chiron held out his hand and Rachel took it. His aided her in sitting next to Perseus.
"That reason is going to take you far away from here" Perseus' father had said. One day, I'll make a difference, Perseus smiled to himself.
Little did Perseus or his family members know, that Perseus would become one of the most important men in the world. Perseus would, in six years, save all mankind from destruction.
Author's note: Sorry this was so short. But the movie didn't really give me much to work with. I know there isn't much to comment on but PLEASE REVIEW.
And why did I chose Chiron and Rachel? Because I couldn't really figure any other characters for Marmara and Spyros. Chiron and Rachel...not the greatest couple ever but whatever. REVIEW.
Please, no flames on my choice of characters. Next chapter will be in Percy's point of view.
