Author has written 8 stories for Percy Jackson and the Olympians.
I am so sorry I let this get so far out of date, you guys. So let me just update this now.
All right. So, I'm seventeen, female, and currently live in the United States.
My all-time favorite book series is Percy Jackson and the Olympians (and by extension, Heroes of Olympus).
I started reading The Lightning Thief in English class in seventh grade. The English department thought it would be a good idea to "teach cross-curriculum" and read us a book with Greek mythology (we were learning about it in history), then they planned to take us to see the movie (which is easily the most awful movie of all time, followed by a close second that seems to be known as the Sea of Monsters, for a reason I'm not sure of).
We finished the first book in class in February and I got the series for my birthday in April. Naturally, I finished it before school let out in June.
After my seventeenth birthday, I was struck by a terribly strange fact. I was twelve when I first read the Lightning Thief, the same age as Percy was in the book. I had waited the long year between each of the books in Heroes of Olympus. And in doing so, I had turned seventeen (while waiting for the final book to kill all of my emotions permanently) and... Percy hadn't. I had been the same age as Percy when we started and suddenly I was older. And unless Blood of Olympus takes place a month after the House of Hades, which I highly doubt, I will always be older than Percy.
It's so weird to me that there are times when I think about it and then sit and stare at nothing for an hour while I think of nothing else. Not to mention that I will be reading Blood of Olympus during my last year of high school. It's kind of like my entire childhood is ending all at once. That terrifies me...
Anyway, I found fanfiction four years ago when I did a Google search to see if there would be any more books after The Last Olympian (turns out Rick would be releasing more, but not until that fall). I had Googled "Percy Jackson Book 6" and it turns out that the first result was a link to a story on this wonderful site. Needless to say, I was hooked.
The Story is Renewed
Multi-chapter. Percabeth. Abandoned.
That fall I started writing a story, myself. That story, which is still listed below, I decided to call "The Story is Renewed." It's essentially just a futurefic, but it's a really, really bad one. Seriously, it sucks. Don't check it out.
While I do hate my first story with its terrible writing, no plot, and no ending (I hated it so much I abandoned it), I am glad that I tried to write it. This crappy story (made up almost entirely of dialogue) got me writing. It gave me another thing that I love to do. It's probably the reason that I love the Percy Jackson series as much as I do. And as much as I can't stand looking back at it, I thank my thirteen-year-old self for writing it.
Multi-chapter. Percabeth. Deleted.
My second story is actually no longer on fanfiction in its original form. This one, also a futurefic (along with every other story I have ever posted), was a quest to go save a missing--and pregnant-- Annabeth. I called it "Not Again!" (Get it? Because Annabeth had already gone missing once? Really bad not-quite-a-joke, right? Well, it pretty much sums up my sense of humor at thirteen.) As I was writing it, I liked it a lot better than "the Story is Renewed." And while I still think that it was at least a little bit better, I still hit a point where I had no idea where to go with it. I struggled for a while, looking back at the previous chapters and growing frustrated. In my excitement to have an OC, I demoted Percy's importance to the story. I focused on her far more than I did him. I also made everything far more melodramatic than anything should ever be ever (including British television shows).
One day, I got my first anonymous flame (before most of my reviews consisted of "it's great" and not much more). While I do not encourage or condone flames, this one actually inspired me, giving me an idea of what to do with "Not Again!" I discontinued the original story and began to rewrite it, doing my best to focus in on Percy. I called the story "Really?" (explained below). And eventually felt that deleting "Not Again!" would be for the best.
A Songfic I Don't Remember the Exact Title Of
While I was struggling with "Not Again!", I wrote a crappy songfic. I called it something like "Percy, Annabeth, and a Song." I'm not entirely sure what it was called because I deleted that one too. All I remember is that it somehow involved Percy and Annabeth and the song was Taylor Swift's "Long Live," of course. I say "of course" because fourteen-year-old me was completely obsessed with Taylor Swift. (She's not my favorite anymore, mainly because I don't particularly like her newest, although not that new, album). The story probably had something to do with Percy being missing, since I wrote it between The Lost Hero and The Son of Neptune, but no guarantees.
Multi-chapter. Percabeth. Complete.
My fourth story is actually the second-oldest story I still have on fanfiction. This one is the rewrite of "Not Again!" I called it "Really?", as fifteen-year-old me felt it necessary to try to maintain the crappy joke-of-a-title from the original. This is actually the first story I have ever finished and, while I haven't really read over it since I finished it, I am kind of proud of myself. I managed to write an entire multi-chapter story without hating it completely.
I hope that I met my goals of focusing on Percy more and maybe writing something with a little bit more quality.
Yet to Be Determined
Multi-chapter. Percabeth. Incomplete.
All right, let me say it. I know that the title makes it sound like I have no idea what I'm writing about and that I can't come up with a title, but "Yet to Be Determined" is the actual title. I (and by "I" I mean both sixteen- and seventeen-year-old me) like the title, actually. It kind of sums up the point of the story. Percy and Annabeth go on a quest with a couple of friends (OCs originally featured in "Really?"), but they have no idea exactly what their goal is. All they know is that a big threat is lurking and their mission is to find out what that as-yet undetermined threat is.
I like this story, even if it has the fewest reviews and visitors of any of my stories. I plan to continue writing it and eventually to finish it.
My first oneshot. My first Percico (Perico, Pernico, Nicercy, what-have-you) story.
Here's where I look back and see how much I've grown up since "The Story is Renewed." I may not be far enough removed yet to judge the quality of my writing, but I can say that it is considerably better that my first story (as it very well should be as the interim stories have given me much practice and practice means improvement, right? Hopefully? No? Eh.). "Annabeth's Right" is dark and emotional. It barely has any dialogue. It's different than anything I've ever written before or since. I hope that it was inspired mainly by The House of Hades and not by my mindset at the time I was writing it.
Pictures of Her
Another Oneshot. Another Percico.
"Pictures of Her" is also dark, but not nearly as dark as "Annabeth's Right." Maybe because I had the storyline I needed to write first out of the way. Maybe because seventeen-year-old springtime me had a slightly healthier, less stressed out mindset than sixteen-year-old Christmas me. I'm not sure.
Percy and Nico struggle with loss.
I don't really have any more to say, as at this time it's only been up for about two months.
"The Apartment" isn't dark at all. It's lighthearted and fun and full of the mesmerizing details of young love. (Since I seem to be psychoanalyzing myself lately, this is probably a reflection of seventeen-year-old-writing-on-the-beach me.) It's cute and I just posted it yesterday, so I have nothing really to say. Although this story does mark the third consecutive year that I have posted a new story on July fourth. (The first two were coincidence).
I hope to write more Percico oneshots in the future, 'cause they're actually a lot of fun to write!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this if you did, and I hope that you like my stories!
Thank you so much for your support and I hope to hear from you in the future!
