Yes, I know, the series never mentions them celebrating Christmas at Camp Half-blood. But for the purposes of this story, pretend that they do.
After all, anything can happen in FF. This particular story takes place between PJO and HOO (Heroes of Olympus).
And no offense to those of you who celebrate Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, since I'm doing Christmas. I guess the demigods' religion is the whole Greek mythology thing, so they'd celebrate Christmas not really as a Christian Christmas, but just as a holiday.
Disclaimer: I don't own PJO. And I'm not rich enough to buy it, so I won't be owning it any time soon. I do own all the OCs and the writing itself.
24 days until Christmas…
"What did you do to my tree?" Thalia screeched, running down the hill. The rest of the hunters followed her cautiously.
Annabeth suppressed a smile "That's the first thing you say to me after, what, two months?"
"Hi. How are you doing? Now what happened to my tree?" Thalia repeated.
Annabeth followed her glare to Thalia's pine, covered in little lights and pink and green ornaments. "The Aphrodite cabin thought we needed more holiday cheer. Sorry."
"PINK and green?" Thalia griped, "What in Hades were they THINKING?"
Annabeth mimicked an Aphrodite girl, "Pink is, like, the new red. I mean, red? That was sooo last year!"
She and Thalia burst into giggles.
"Glad to see you two are having fun out here while I try to wrestle the lights onto the Big House." Annabeth and Thalia turned to see Percy mockingly shaking his head at them.
"Come on." Annabeth pulled on Thalia's hand. "Apparently the guys aren't smart enough to set up the lights themselves."
Thalia and Annabeth walked down the hill talking excitedly.
"Hey, Nico! I found some help!" Percy called up.
Nico peeked out from on top of the roof "Good. It's unfitting for the Ghost King to have to set up Christmas lights."
He climbed down the ladder and dusted himself off before noticing Thalia. "Oh! Hi, Pinecone Face. It's your turn to go up there."
Thalia backed away, her face pale "I'm not going up there."
"Oh, right." Annabeth said "Guess that mean we can't help after all!" She started to leave.
"Not so fast, Wise Girl." Percy caught her hand and pulled her back. "You and Thalia can set up the holly garlands inside, then."
They cheerfully ran into the Big House, giggling together.
"Make sure you actually work!" Percy called after them.
They didn't hear. And it wouldn't have mattered anyway.
I know it's short, but I'll update everyday until Christmas. That should make up for it.
Just a random piece of info: I'm calling these drabbles, even thought a drabble is a story under 100 words and these chapters will be about 200 - 300 words long. I'm a daughter of Athena, so I just had to say that. Sorry if it bored you!
Drew: That was boring, hon. And pink is the new red!
Me: Why do you keep enunciating your words?
Drew: *huffs* You better put me in the next chapter.
Me: I'll think about it. Now remember to review or you'll get chopped into itty-bitty pieces by Backbiter, Riptide, Katoptris, etc. all at the same time!
