Summary: This is an AU-story, but it's not a total AU. It still takes place in a universe with the Roman and Greek gods, all the characters we know and love are still children of their representative godly parents. But the two Great Prophecies never happened, none of the two wars happened and instead of visiting separated summer camps, all half-bloods live in a sheltered safe haven called Olympolis, where they actually live pretty normal lives with going to school, shopping, everything you need to be a regular teenager. If a demigod decides to live in Olympolis, they get to stay in special apartment buildings, where demigods live in rooming arrangements with each other. The city is protected by the magic of the gods, just as camp borders are. And aside from the average quest now and then, they actually live in peace.
At least until now.
A threat – older and more powerful than the Giants or Titans – emerges as the children of the oldest deity fight. The gods wish to keep out of the fight between Hemera and Nyx, but the older deities want to pull the demigods into their fight, to use them in their war. At first, no one is worried, because the demigods are safe in Olympolis. But then Poseidon and Pluto admit each having another child out there. So the four children of the Big Three, who already are living in Olympolis, are send out with the most powerful demigods of the city to search for those two forgotten half-bloods. What dangers and adventures await them? And can love bloom in the middle of a war?
The Most Sparkling Diamond
To Search and to Find
1. The Ghost Prince and the Sky Prince
By the time Jason and Nico reached their hotel suit, they were already both naked, with Nico in the blonde's arms, kissing his lover fiercely and demandingly. The blonde had a hard time opening the door with how distracting his half-Italian could get. Once inside, they only made it to the couch before Jason dropped the younger boy and forced his legs apart.
"You angry when I picture fucking that pretty little diamond now?", smirked the blonde.
"Not if you're not angry if I picture him too when I'm going to fuck you", replied the half-Italian wickedly. "And I'll be fucking you hard, Grace."
"Feisty bitch", hissed Jason and crashed their lips together once more. "Only if you can still move once I'm through with you, death brat."
"Promises, promises", snickered the younger boy and spread his legs some.
Dark eyes were wide as he stared up into the night-sky. His lover had already fallen asleep. Jason always did when he was getting fucked. Nico snorted slightly. What a wimp. Stretching some, he tried to find certain constellations in the stars. They made him feel more homey.
He sighed briefly and wondered if his big sister was currently gazing at the stars too. She had once told him that, whatever happened, however far they would be separated, the night sky was what united them. It was a nice sentiment and Nico liked to hold onto it whenever he was not with her. Because for the longest of times, his sister Bianca had been all he had. After their mother had died in a car accident, they had been on the run. On the run from monsters. For months and months to go, the ten-years-old boy and his two years older sister had been all alone. Sometimes they encountered others like them. Other demi-gods, as they later learned. But they all tried to stay away from the siblings. Because of their father. Hades, Lord of the Underworld. If there was one thing that frightened children who already had nothing, it was death. And death's children, apparently. Not that Nico or Bianca were at fault for who their father was. Their lives only turned better once they met a Quest. A group of three, one protector, a satyr called Grover, and two demi-gods. Luke and Thalia. The two of them had brought Bianca and Nico back to a safe place. A place called Olympus City, in the middle of the Mojave Desert, far off from civilization to keep the mortals safe from the godly world. It held the glorious, white marble temple that held the entrance to Olympus, as well as the impressive, black marble temple that led down to the underworld. Apartment complexes that were only used by teenagers, a school where great names such as Lupa and Hercules were teaching, even things like a cinema and a shopping mall. It was a normal city, just that the normal people couldn't notice it due to something called the Mist. A magic woven to protect the mortals from monsters. Being in Olympus City was the first time that Nico felt as if he fitted in. Thalia and Luke had soon become the two people they looked up to, guiding them. The city was full with other demi-gods – children, teenagers, adults. Though most of them were underaged since most who became adults left to start a life in the mortal world after having learned everything they needed to defend themselves as well as a school education without someone bullying them because of their 'weird' powers. It was home, until they were old enough to make their own homes. Many had left Olympus City to found similar cities, or towns, or villages, all around the world, to offer a safe place for demi-gods who were unable to reach a desert in North America.
At first it had been hard to fit in for the children of death. But Thalia and Luke had been a great help. They had introduced the siblings to their own friends and, even though only reluctantly, they befriended Nico and Bianca. That was how Nico had met his boyfriend too. Thalia's little brother. It was easy to relate to each other. They were both sons of two of the Big Three – the most powerful gods there were. And they both had older sisters who outran them in experience and strength. Bianca was a fast learned, with the guidance of Lupa she soon learned to control the shadows and the death. But Nico had always been the more... stubborn one of them. He wanted to do it his own way. Which most of the times ended with him in the infirmary, getting a scolding from his sister. But since Jason too had the urge to prove himself, they often found themselves in the infirmary together. Until one day, they had decided to just train together. It was then that they had started to get closer. Nico had learned about how their mother had drunk herself to death and how the two siblings – a child of Zeus and a child of Jupiter, but both with the same mother – had then been brought to camp. They had been quite the scandal. Because, even though there were demi-god children of both aspects of the gods in the city, it was rare for a god to sire two children with the same mother, much less in two different forms. And children like them, children of the Big Three, were a scandal anyway. It was what made Jason kind of protective over Nico. Because the blonde preteen knew how it felt to be the odd outsider kid of one of the Big Three. The two grew older and also grew inseparable. By now, Nico was sixteen and Jason was seventeen and they were dating for two years now. But life was never perfect, especially not for the children of the gods.
A war was on the verge of breaking loose. A war mightier than the little quarrels the gods sometimes had. No, a real, proper war. Between deities mightier and older than the gods. And even though the gods had already declared they would not interfere or take sides in this war, they still had to make some precautions. The demi-gods of Olympus City knew to not get drawn into this, because the two sides of this war had already approached some of them. Though there were still demi-gods out there, some that didn't even know of their heritage. Satyrs, all around the world, grew more frantic in their searches for them. But two demi-gods especially worried the gods. For both, Pluto and Poseidon had admitted that there was one child of each still out there somewhere.
Nico shuddered as he remembered the chaos that had erupted all around the city at those news. More children of the Big Three? What if the two fighting parties would get their hands on them before they were claimed and within the safety of the city? They could turn into great weapons if used by the wrong deity. The two mayors of Olympus City, Chiron and Lupa, had spend long discussions with the higher ranked members of the city.
Until it was decided, with the help of the Roman augur and the Greek oracle, that a quest was in need. A quest for demi-gods to find the two missing ones. Since they feared to face the angry deities that wanted those two demi-gods, they deemed it fit to send the well-trained and powerful children of the Big Three out. Jason, Nico, Bianca and Thalia had only reluctantly agreed. They parted ways, each of them took two other demi-gods with them. Bianca and Thalia left to search for the child of Pluto, while Jason and Nico were to find the child of Poseidon.
And even though they were supposed to find them on their own, Jason looking with his two companions while Nico traveled with his two best friends, the couple always stayed close. They mostly met up for camping or in hotels to spend the nights and make plans as to where to continue their search, but once day arrived, they bolted off into different directions for their search.
Nico heaved a sigh and turned to rest his head on Jason's chest, listening to the even heartbeat of his lover. He needed this. Needed to hear his lover's life. As the child of death, life reassured him somehow. Especially in times of a nearing war. Even more so now that they had found what they had been searching for. This... mesmerizing beauty they had just seen in this club must have been the child of Poseidon they had been looking for. Or he was going crazy. Groaning slightly, he stood. A pain shot up his spine. Jason really hadn't been tender tonight. But then again, neither had he. A wicked smirk slid onto his lips as he walked out of the bedroom and into the living room. It was dark and silent. So either their four companions were already in their own beds, or still out. They had taken this day off. Even they couldn't work all day, all week. Today had been their free day, it had been why Nico had suggested to visit the club. Because really, the last thing Nico had wanted was to check a strip-club/bordello with Clarisse la Rue and Lou Ellen. So rather going there in their private time with his lover. He actually hadn't expected to find anything anyway. Tip-toeing over to the other bedrooms, he peered into them to see if the others were there. Empty. Nico chuckled slightly. It figured. Lou and Reyna weren't in their bed. They must have been exhausted to death and back after the last few days especially so. While Nico and his two friends had walked the streets of Jacksonville for days to come, Jason had chased his two companions through Chicago. Lou and Reyna had spend their whole free day comparing who had suffered more. Lou in Florida, or Reyna in Illinois. In the end they simply had agreed to get wasted. Taking a couple of steps, he looked into the third bedroom of their suit. He chuckled slightly as he saw Clarisse and Chris cuddled closely and obviously naked beneath their sheets. If he and his boyfriend wouldn't have gone at it so hard themselves, he would have probably heard their love-making too. He shuddered at the thought.
Closing the doors silently, he headed out of the suit and onto their balcony, but not without grabbing a small device from the table. It looked like a pocket-mirror, but as Nico opened it, a tiny rainbow spread over the two sides of it. Thanks to Lady Iris, the goddess of messages and rainbows, they could communicate with each other via so-called Iris Messages. And those little pocket-rainbows were like the demi-god versions of cellphones.
"Malcolm Cage", called Nico out softly.
The rainbow flickered to show the image of an annoyed blonde boy and an even more annoyed brunette girl, both of them half-naked as they glared at him. Nico grinned sheepishly.
"You are aware that it is the middle of the night, yes, di Angelo?", grunted the brunette.
"Sorry, Katie. I kind of couldn't sleep and forgot the time...", mumbled Nico embarrassed.
"Very well", sighed Katie and shook her head. "This better be important. Malcolm and I were just about to get... busy. What is it that you need to bother us?"
The Ghost Prince chuckled slightly. The brunette was the daughter of Demeter, though she was nothing like a pacifistic flower power kind of person. And she was the girlfriend of the guy Nico wanted to talk to. The brains of their clique. Malcolm Cage, son of Athena.
"I wanted to talk to Malcolm", smiled Nico. "Some... things I wanted to check with him..."
The couple exchanged a glare before the brunette girl heaved a sigh and stood. "I'll go and take a very relaxing bath. You may join me once you're through with this."
"Okay, Ghost Prince", growled the blonde with a glare. "This better be good, because I am missing out some glorious sex here. And you already look very thoroughly fucked. Same rights for everyone. What's keeping you awake, Nico?"
"Jay and I met this boy tonight", sighed Nico and ran his fingers through his hair. "He was... different. Different than anything I have ever encountered. His voice charmed us like not even the children of Apollo did. His beauty was more mesmerizing than the children of Aphrodite and Venus. The way he swayed his hips made me want to just... bend him over..."
"Shall I go and get you someone for your love-trouble then because you're doubting your feelings for Grace, or what are you trying to say?", grunted Malcolm skeptically.
"No", huffed the son of Hades and glared. "The boy had the same effect on Jay. And on practically everyone else in the room. The first thing both of us had to think of was a siren. Those mythical things that had charmed sailors and stuff. I mean, it's what they say about sirens, mermaids, all those beautiful beings from the sea. Is it... Could it be that that's the kid of Poseidon?"
The annoyed look on Malcolm's face melted, to be replaced by the curiosity of Athena. The gray eyes switched back and forth as if he was reading something, even though he had no book in front of him. His memory was amazing. The son of Athena hummed and grunted once in a while.
"Yes", nodded the blonde after a while. "It could be. I mean, I don't know. The last child of Poseidon that had been known was Winston Churchill. And I wouldn't call him the hot siren you just described. So... Well, it could be something like Leo. His fire is a rare ability too, after all. It could be that those siren-like powers could only come with some too. I will contact Chiron and Lupa tomorrow morning and talk to them about this. It may take some time until I'll get to talk to them, they're quite busy. You... just keep an eye on that possible son of Poseidon, got it?"
"Got it", nodded the son of Hades. "And... sorry again for being the coitus interruptus."
The blonde huffed again before the image flickered out again. Nico sighed and closed the PIM – whoever came up with that idiotic acronym for a Pocket Iris Message needed to be hit upside the head. The Ghost Prince yawned slightly. All the sex was quite exhausting and the search had drained him too. He felt his knees going a tiny little weaker. He had shadow-traveled so much while they had been in Jacksonville, once there had even been the Minotaur attacking them. He had needed to raise an army of zombies because Lou had been unconscious and Clarisse was busy trying to pull Lou out from under the crumbled bridge. Controlling the death and constantly shadow-traveling – especially so with an unconscious daughter of Hecate – was too much. His head felt a little dizzy. Groaning slightly, he grabbed his own head.
"Bag Ghost Prince", growled a dark voice behind him, strong arms wrapping around Nico's waist, pulling him against a broad chest. "I told you you should drink much if you do so much with your powers. You need much liquid then. And not just the liquid I give you."
"Shut up and carry me back to our bed", demanded Nico with a low voice. "I've been completely fine until you and your devilish cock came to drain me."
"My devilish cock? Says the son of the devil", snickered Jason and wrapped one arm around his lover's waist to stable him. "Come, let's go and sleep until tomorrow evening."
"Agreed", yawned Nico and leaned more against his blonde. "And don't call my dad the devil. He doesn't like that. And he dislikes you enough as it is. I don't you turning into a rabbit or anything..."
"I would be a great rabbit though", huffed the son of Jupiter and wiggled his nose.
"Adorable. And you're already so good at finding eggs", snickered Nico and kissed his cheek.
Jason chuckled amused and somehow brought his lover over to their bedroom again, slowly placing him on their bed. Nico was out like a candle within the minute. The amused expression on Jason's face disappeared instantly. A dark frown replaced it as the blonde ran his fingers through the unruly black hair, pulling the son of Hades close to his chest. He disliked this mission. He disliked being on a quest without his lover. They met every night and rested together, but the dangerous part happened without Jason being anywhere near to watch over his Ghost Prince. Not that Nico needed his protection. No, his Ghost Prince was probably the most powerful demi-god Jason has ever met. And that list included himself and both their sisters. But even between the di Angelo siblings, their powers varied. While Bianca, the older one, was a child of Darkness, Nico was a child of Death.
The daughter of Hades controlled shadows on a whole new level and was even able to become invisible with a little help of the shadows surrounding her. And she communicated with the animals of the underworlds, controlling hell-hounds. Nico could shadow-travel like his sister too, but not as good as Bianca. The Shadow Princess could even travel others if she wanted, or with whole groups. Nico was always at his end when he had to shadow-travel alone, but taking someone else with him most of the times ended with Nico sleeping for half a day. No, Nico's realm was death. He could summon zombies and ghosts, communicate with the dead and sense when someone was dying or at the verge of dying. And with death came earth, the sacred place where the dead were buried. Which meant earthquakes and controlling the earth. That was the reason he could shadow-travel too. Only when the shadows were in contact with the earth to make the connection with the underworld.
Jason yawned widely and leaned down to kiss the head of his lover. In all of Olympus City, Nico di Angelo was the most powerful and the most amazing demi-god he had ever seen. He too was a child of the Big Three, but controlling lightning and thunder and some flying was nothing compared to an army of angry, bones-wielding zombies. But now that he had seen this Sparkling Diamond, he felt a bit too intrigued to be good. The boy, he had managed to capture a whole room. Including two very, very well-trained children of the Big Three. Jason blushed slightly and shook his head. It was very much unlike him to get that uncontrollably horny. In their bedroom, when he was alone with Nico, yes. But in public? Especially so when he knew they were kind of on a mission (the fact that Nico had turned their date into work would earn that stupid Ghost Prince a punishment later on too). The Sparkling Diamond had manipulated him just like that, without much effort. The boy had not even concentrated on him or anything. But then again, Jason guessed that the boy had no idea about his own powers or heritage. He most likely had not even intended to control anyone. Jason remembered it from his and Nico's beginnings. While he had electrocuted Lupa about five times back then, Nico had scared the younger ones off with many accidentally summoned dead dudes.
A giggling from outside interrupted Jason's rapid thoughts. He frowned and slowly pushed the son of Hades off, putting a pillow between Nico's arms as the Ghost Prince gave a grumpy sound upon being separated from his pillow. Jason smiled fondly down at the son of Hades. Another thing that indicated Nico's exhaustion. The son of Hades had never been very affectionate since his mother's death, not even with his boyfriend. But when he was exhausted, he always got cuddly. The blonde yawned and got out of the bedroom – though not without wrapping one of the blankets around his naked body. No need to scare the party girls off. A slight grin tugged on his lips as he saw the two girls entering the suit, loudly singing 'Call me maybe', both having one arm around each other and holding onto a nearly empty bottle of vodka with the other.
"You had fun, yes?", asked the son of Jupiter with one raised eyebrow.
"Lotsa!", exclaimed his best friend enthusiastically and nodded.
"All the hot girls all over the bar", groaned Lou with wide gestures.
The open bottle in her hand splashed some vodka onto the walls. Jason raised the other eyebrow too. It was never a good combination when the purple-haired punk witch and the normally strict warrior met. Most of the times it started with fighting and ended with them drinking on eternal sisterhood. And what connected them then was the only thing the Greek and Roman had in common. Their sexual preference. Once the two were drunk, they started to roam the lesbian bars and clubs since they at least had the same pray. The normal, shy and average girls with big boobs. And that always ended with a scolding from Lou's girlfriend, but the witch defended herself always only with one simple statement. That she just wanted to help the Roman find a girlfriend herself since Reyna would never-ever manage that on her own. Which led to another fight. And then in another round of drinking and partying. It was their very own circle of life.
"And that ass", groaned Reyna, the bottle hitting the table-top hard. "I want some nice ass!"
"And boobs!", added Lou with a huff, gesturing widely again. "Like Randa's! Nice and soft and-"
"Bi—ig!", agreed the Roman girl and licked her lips. "And blonde!"
"What? No! Brunette!", huffed the daughter of Hecate with a glare.
"You're dumb!", grunted Reyna and stemmed her hands into her hips. "There ain't nothing hotter than a cute blonde with golden curls framing her hot boobs!"
"The fuck no! Nothing better than dark hair!", disagreed the punk girl, though this time her bottle slipped out of her hand and nearly hit the wall. "Oh... Ooopsie!"
"No kidding?", huffed Jason, who had manipulated the air around the bottle to stop it from hitting the wall behind which his boyfriend was sleeping. "You two go onto bed right now or I am going to call Miranda. And you're not getting up before you're sober again."
"Aw", pouted Lou with a quivering lip and duck beneath Reyna's arm. "Come on."
"Yeah. He always kills he mood. He's only fun when he has his lover-boy", huffed Reyna and directed them to their bedroom. "Nighty-night, Jay."
"Nighty-night, Rey", chuckled Jason and watched how the door closed behind the two girls.
Shaking his head and lowering the bottle again, he turned to get back to his boyfriend.
