Chapter 1 – Back to the Beginning

The sweet, musky scent of perfume wafted in her nose as she entered the hall. The décor was 'Paris chic', which she knew was the next latest trend in interior design. It seemed that her mother was ahead of everyone in both fashion and household design. But she wasn't just ahead of anyone; she was the trendsetter. Keeping those thought about her mother's trends to herself, she swiftly paced along, not wanting to keep her mother waiting. A meeting with the goddess of love is hard to get, but she was lucky because her concerns included the words 'couples' and 'Sing It'. With that, her mother had kindly whisked her away to Mt. Olympus to have a little chat.

She finally got to the throne room, which was lavished with the perks of a goddess; including a fountain right next to her throne to view the romantic on-goings of mortals. She meekly looked around her surroundings before going up to the throne. She kneeled down in front of it, the respectful way to greet her mother.

"You don't have to kneel to me Silena." She said cheerfully. Silena stood up and looked at her mother; the beautiful Aphrodite. Aphrodite looked elegant as always, a mischievous smile gracing her features. Silena could see the playful twinkle in her eyes, and she knew that this upcoming topic was extremely important business to take care of.

"Well?" Aphrodite asked, raising a hand and beckoning Silena to begin the briefing about the Camp Half-Blood crisis. Though it seems silly to discuss; it wasn't. To Aphrodite, Camp Half-Blood was always one of the best places to view the ups and downs of her power; therefore, what her daughter had to say was of the utmost importance. It also didn't help that Valentine's Day was approaching soon, loading her with more work to do, and less time to observe her favorite demigods.

"Well," Silena began, clearing her throat for the long speech ahead. "It seems that none of our plans since the major one last year have worked. So far, only Percy and Annabeth are the strongest couple that has still managed to stay together. The other ones – it seems that everyone's breaking up one after the other." Silena's voice started cracking at this point, and Aphrodite looked at her with a concerned gaze. "We can't do anything! It's been like this ever since last year! I don't know what to do mom! Isn't it supposed to be my job to bring couples together? Now all I can do is sit and watch as they fall apart! I can't stand it!"

Silena broke down into heaping sobs, disappointed at her efforts during the past year. She was the head of Aphrodite cabin; she was meant to be the strongest. She was meant to spread the message of love to all the campers, and so far; she's been failing at her duty. Graceful arms enveloped her body in a warm, affectionate hug. Silena slowly turned her head to the right, where she saw her own mother trying to comfort her. Silena couldn't help but burst back into tears. Her own mother was trying to show her compassion and love. She had never even dreamed of this ever happening in her entire life. So all she did was cry in her mother's arms, while Aphrodite tried to soothe her daughter down. Admittedly, she had never done anything of this sort, so this was a whole new experience for her. The first time she's ever been a… a mother to one of her children.

They stayed in this position for a few moments. Silena found it comforting, and Aphrodite found it to be an amazing feeling, being motherly for the first time. They soon broke up, and Aphrodite returned back to her throne. Silena hiccuped for a final time before standing upright and continuing on with her speech. She knew she shouldn't break down this time, so she'll be as calm as possible.

She cleared her throat again before restarting. "Nearly all couples have broken up in camp, and we need something to bring them back together – something big. Also, I think we might have to include the Roman camp in this one, because from what I found out, they need some help as well in the romance department."

"I see." Aphrodite said curiously. She then put her pointer finger on her chin, contemplating on what they had to do. They needed something big – something fun – something that involves…

"Singing." Silena blurted, as if reading her mother's mind. Aphrodite was startled by her daughter's sudden outburst but then smiled knowingly, happy that he and her daughter had the right idea. "Singing – it's the only thing big enough for everyone to be in it. Though it has to be bigger, brighter and most of all; better than last years'!"

"You're on the right track Silena." Her mother said, urging her daughter to continue on. Giddiness was bubbling inside her; this year was going to be better than the last. She was going to strive to that point.

"Mom," Silena began, her mother staring at her intently as she waited to hear the notion. "We're gonna have to do this again."

"Well, it seems that we're on the same page Silena." Her mother replied, a mischievous smile forming once again on her elegant face. Silena's eyes widened, knowing that this was going to turn out even more difficult than before.

"So what are we going to do?" Silena asked curiously. She sounded like a child asking what their present was during Christmas, but who wouldn't be this exhilarated. She was excited to find out what was going to happen. Her mother gave her a coy wink, sensing her anticipation.

"I've got a plan." Aphrodite deviously stated.

..O..

To a normal person, the camp would have looked normal; kids and teens going about their fun activities as usual. It wouldn't have looked any different to any other camps they see. But, there was a difference with this camp. If you were someone from that camp, you would've known instantly that something was wrong with everyone. The kids, they all lacked any energy to play. They may have seemed happy, but it was all just a mask. They were truly worried for their older siblings, who looked and acted even worse than them. The teenagers; all of them acted like zombies. Most of them had bags under their eyes and have to stifle yawns every other minute, due to the fact they don't sleep. They're all thin, nearly to the bone, since they don't eat anything. Girls have red, puffy eyes and dried up tear tracks, because they have to cry themselves to sleep. The boys, all have hateful looks on their faces, glaring at anyone who messes with them that day. It was a camp leader's worst nightmare.

For Percy, that is. He had to walk around camp, doing his normal activities, but always having some type of guilt to way him down. He was the fucking camp leader; the one that everyone looked up to, yet he still couldn't do a damn thing. All he could do was watch the camp fall into pieces. Everyone was broken, somehow. He didn't know what to do. All the cabin leaders, they try to cheer everyone up, but they couldn't do that if they have problems of their own. Even if they had merged with the Roman camp peacefully, no shit happened. Even the Roman campers felt crap, and Jason didn't know what to do either. Countless meetings with leaders; nothing. Fun activities for everyone; nothing. Happy camp; nothing. What the Hades did he need to do?

"Percy." Someone said, and he spun around to see Piper looking at him thoughtfully. She was a new camper, but still extremely useful; managing to get the title of assistant cabin leader for Aphrodite. She was also kick-ass, who didn't give a damn about any girly shit like a stereotype Aphrodite girl, which made her better. "Silena wanted to round all the cabin leaders up. She said it was something important."

If important was something that could cheer everyone out of their depression phase, then he'll be glad for any suggestion. He quickly followed Piper who was already walking away from him. They reached the recreation room in no time, and he was surprised by the fact that he was the last person to arrive. Everyone was seated around the ping pong table, where Silena was sitting. He took a seat next to Annabeth, and put an arm around her. She quickly snuggled beside him as Silena began her speech.

"Sorry for the short notice, but this meeting is extremely important." She stated, her voice sounding with authority. If she sounded like that, she meant business – serious business.

"This better be important." Clarisse stated angrily. It sounded more like a growl though, not surprising. "This is cutting into my training time."

"Clarisse." Silena said sweetly, smiling at the girl before turning dark and glaring at her. "I suggest you shut the hell up or I'll give you a fucking makeover."

Everyone was shocked to hear her words, so they all shut up, not wanting to face Silena's scary wrath. She smiled sweetly at everyone, as if warning them before going back to her serious tone.

"The whole camp's been acting like zombies. Everyone's just… dead." She began solemnly. She twiddled her thumbs nervously but continued on. "We need something to massive to cheer them up back to their original state."

"What can we do?" Annabeth piped up, sitting back properly on the couch. Everyone turned to her and looked at her with curiosity. "I mean – we've tried everything haven't we?"

"Not everything my dear." Silena said impishly, her smile becoming playful. "There's still one more thing that can cheer up these zombie like campers."

Connor raised his hand up, and we all turned to him, wondering what idiotic thing he was going to say. Silena smiled at him and nodded her head, gesturing for him to ask his question.

Connor stood up and cleared his throat, before speaking in an idiotic British accent. "Well madam, what we're wondering is-"

"Hold up!" someone added, and everyone turned to Leo, who was looking at Connor in amusement. "What the hell's up with your voice man? You sound like an idiot doing it."

Connor turned to him and grinned. "You see my Lord Leo; I was forced to do this by my ass of a brother. I lost to him in a bet, therefore I suffer this consequence."

We all turned to Travis, who just smiled mischievously. "Carry on." He said cheerfully, winking at us while waving his hand, gesturing for Connor to continue.

Connor cleared his throat once more. "As I was saying before I was rudely interrupted," he began, shooting a stupid glare at Leo, who only grinned back in return. "We were all wondering what on Earth this one thing you proposed is. I dare say that none of us have quite figured out what you mean by this one thing, so to save us the trouble from pestering you later; I now ask you the question. What haven't we done?" Everyone gave him a round of applause once he was done, and all he did was bow idiotically and sit back down next to his brother who clapped him on the back proudly.

Silena smiled and giggled at Connor before turning to all of us once more. "This one thing that we haven't done," she began before winking playfully at them. "I'll reveal to you all later. After lunch."

Clarisse growled once more before standing up furiously. "What the hell was the point in coming here? I just wasted my fucking time listening to you all ramble about nonsense while missing out on my training which is more useful than what shit we were talking about now!" she growled. Everyone turned to her and glared while Silena walked up to and smiled.

"I'll meet you in my cabin later." She said in a sweetly venomous tone. "You're going to look so pretty once I'm done with you!"

Everyone gaped at Silena, especially Clarisse, whose eyes were bugging out of their sockets. Silena glared once more at Clarisse before turning to everyone.

"I just wanted to give you all the heads up." She stated happily. "See you all after lunch!" She waved at them before rushing back to her cabin, probably planning out her revenge on Clarisse. The leaders all froze for a moment before going back to the normal oddities they were doing before. For Percy, that was contemplating on how complicated his life had become.

..O..

After lunch, a loud crackling was heard and everyone turned and looked at the closest speaker where the sound was coming from. After a few moments, the crackling stopped and was replaced by the dainty voice of Silena.

"Would everyone please gather in the amphitheater in ten minutes please? Thank you!" she said cheerfully before going off. The campers looked to one another in confusion before shrugging and filing into the amphitheater. Little did they know what was about to happen next.

..O..

The amphitheater was dark, the dome from last year not having been removed yet. Everyone looked around, agitation gnawing at them. What was happening? What was Silena even planning?

Their questions were blurted out by the sound of a loud, familiar tune hitting their ears. Everyone looked around, wondering where the music was coming from. It seems to have surrounded them. Squealing and shrieking could be heard from the younger campers, all of them scared at what was happening. They were all being engulfed by the darkness and the music.

?: Hot and dangerous
If you're one of us, then roll with us
'Cause we make the hipsters fall in love
And we've got hot-pants on and up
And yes of course we does we're running this town just like a club
And no, you don't wanna mess with us
Got Jesus on my necklace

The campers were all surprised when a spotlight came on, concentrating on one spot on the stage where there was a chair, and a person sitting on it. The person had long black hair and blue eyes. The younger campers were awed, but the older campers just freaked out.

"Silena!" Annabeth cried out in disbelief, voicing out what everyone else had wanted to say. If Silena had heard them, then she had just ignored the outburst and kept on singing.

Silena: I've got that glitter on my eyes
Stockings ripped all up the side
Looking sick and sexy-fied
So let's go-o-o (Let's go!)

At this, Silena stood up from her seat and everyone anticipated her next move. She replaced her microphone with her infamous megaphone and moved to front and center of the stage. She raised her hand up, as if telling everyone to join in.

Tonight we're going hard
Just like the world is ours
We're tearin' it apart
You know we're superstars
We R who we R!

We're dancing like we're dumb
Our bodies go numb
We'll be forever young
You know we're superstars
We R who we R!

The campers started following Silena's indication and started dancing to the music. People were shouting and cheering, jumping and dancing; their energy starting to return.

DJ turn it up
It's about damn time to live it up
I'm so sick of being so serious
It's making my brain delirious!

I'm just talkin' truth
I'm telling you 'bout the s— we do
We're sellin' our clothes, sleepin' in cars
Dressin' it down, hittin' on dudes (HARD!)

At the last lines, the girls 'whooped' while the guys wolf-whistled. The younger kids just cheered and danced crazily, oblivious to the words Silena was singing. Silena climbed off stage and started dancing with the ecstatic crowd, overjoyed that her plan was so far working.

I've got that glitter on my eyes
Stockings ripped all up the side
Looking sick and sexy-fied
So let's go-o-o (Let's go!)

Tonight we're going hard
Just like the world is ours
We're tearin' it apart
You know we're superstars
We R who we R!

We're dancing like we're dumb
Our bodies go numb
We'll be forever young
You know we're superstars
We R who we R!

DJ turn it up
DJ turn it up
DJ turn it up
DJ turn it up

The crowd went even wilder when it got closer to the end. They were cheering louder and dancing harder as the people around Silena crowded around her to join in singing.

Tonight we're going hard
Just like the world is ours
We're tearin' it apart
You know we're superstars
We R who we R!

We're dancing like we're dumb
Our bodies go numb
We'll be forever young
You know we're superstars
We R who we R!

With one last wolf-whistle from one of the guys, the whole crowd burst into raucous cheers, shouting themselves hoarse. Silena was awed by how… normal they were acting again. They were zombies no longer, and it was only just the beginning.

She climbed back on the stage and waited or the cheering to subside. Once it did, they all turned to her, anticipating what she was going to say.

"Campers," she began as the campers waited apprehensively. "We're going to have to do this again guys."

They all looked at her with confused expressions, wondering what in Hades she was referring to. Silena shook her head, disappointed that they had all forgotten what happened only a year ago. She waited a moment before announcing the beginning.

"Let's Sing It One More Time!"


Songs Used:

We R Who We R – Ke$ha

I didn't make you guys wait long, did I? I hope it was a good way to start this off again. I had to live up to expectations. To make a sequel, I knew that it had to be as good and possibly even better then the first one, so yeah…

Also, I realized that in Sing It, I made the story sort of… immature-ish. I realized that these most of these characters are eighteen now therefore they're going to sound and act like eighteen year olds. This story might turn more mature. Not too mature but just a few tweaks here and there in some of the things that happen. You may have noticed that I used the f-word in here, so that's just one change.

You are still allowed to add song requests in your review, but you are now also free to PM me any songs you want me to add, or any changes you want me to put in the story. Yes, I want a lot of reader involvement with this story, so you're free to tell me anything you think about Sing It One More Time.

Sorry for the long AN but I just wanted to clarify a few things. Any questions, just PM me, and I expect some reviews here guys! Not to be pushy or anything, but I'd love for you to add a review. I do read every single one of them you know.

Also, more reviews might equal to quicker updates. Just saying. You also might enjoy what follows this. Hope you can wait to find out what happens!


Teaser:

When Annabeth saw her, it was so surprising. She was so angry; so heartbroken. Her eyes were red and puffy and tear tracks smeared her face. She could imagine that this was like herself almost a year and a half ago. She couldn't understand. Who could've done this to her?
