Introduction

Image



Plot I: Since the time before man, The Gods have had many enemies who wished to see the fall of Zeus. One throne, the golden throne, is more important than anyone could imagine. That very throne is the core of the Gods world, thus a King is needed to protect it. Hades is still very much sour about his punishment, was grateful for the treaty, but got greedy like Zeus' father. In this story of ours, the Gods are not related, so Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades are not brothers. Zeus also only has two children - Alex and Ajax. There is a war coming. Will they be ready for it?




Each God has 1-2 offsprings, so if you're a Demigod!? choose who you'd like to have as a Godly parent. If you choose a Goddess as your mother, then your Father must me mortal.. same goes for choosing a God for a Father.. your mother is mortal. You can play 2-3 Demigods, or 1-2 Gods/Goddesses to play as if you want to.

Each God has their own powers which are passed down to their children. All Godly positions are ***OPEN*** - If you don't like the Gods faceclaim!? then tell me who you'd like to change them too, but PLEASE do not change the main Gods faces: Zeus, Poseidon, Ares, Hades and Hecate. They remain as they are. Thank you.

Andy's gaze rose slightly as her comment seemed to bring a smile to Ajax's lips. He then leaned in towards her, pausing momentarily, then kissed her. She let her eyes flutter closed, exhaling a sigh through her nose as she returned to tender kiss. She tried to give her strongest smile when he pulled away. Her thumb softly stoked his cheek as he spoke.

"Maybe one day. First, I got to make sure you're all safe. That's all that matters to me." Andy sighed. Of course. She just hoped he didn't get himself killed in the process. She didn't need to lose anyone else. "Come on, let us get this funeral going so their souls can finally be at peace."

"I'll be there in a minute," Andy gave him a half smile as he stood up and walked off. She remained there on the beach for another couple minutes or so as she tried to gather herself together. Not that anyone expected her to be fine, but she refused to be a blubbering mess in front of the other campers either. She felt the need to be strong. Andy made a name for herself between helping take down a minotaur her first day and dating basically the head of the camp.

With a sigh, Andy stood up and dusted off her shorts. She slowly trudged her way over to the pyres. Instead of moving beside Ajax, she kept to the back of the crowd, watching from a distance. Her arms crossed as she chewed on her bottom lip. She couldn't help but hate how Daniel wasn't there. No funeral for her to take part in, nothing. Looking around at all of the sad faces of those who lost loved ones like she did, made her think.... While everyone else goes home for the summer, she is going to train. Andy refuses to let someone take a loved one from her again.

***

Wes instantly regretted saying anything after the kiss. Seeing Trinity's smile fade to a frown at his comment made his heart sink. Of course, it had nothing to do with her. He just wished when he got the chance to finally hold her, he could do it with both arms. He couldn't always find the silver lining.

“It’s okay,” Trinity said, putting her hand on his jaw. “You managed pretty effectively with one.”

Wes gave a weak laugh, raising his hand to touch hers that was on his jaw. "Ok, blondie."

“You are a bit of the pain in the ass though. You were hard to look out for on the field, always picking the opponent that was 100 times bigger than you. You must have been a handful in your high school.”

Wes couldn't help but smile at the scrunch in her nose. He leaned his head in towards her once more. "You have no idea," he said with a grin. Then before she could say anything else, he placed one more quick kiss upon her lips. He chuckled as he pulled away. "Just had to make sure I wasn't dreaming."

When Ajax started gathering the campers around the pyres for the funeral, Trinity moved to her feet. Wes pushed off the ground with his hand and moved to stand beside her. His gaze passed over all the different campers. He couldn't imagine how many of them lost someone their cared deeply for. He couldn't imagine that. As the reality of it all sunk in, his hand slid down the take Trinity's.

"Would anyone like to say anything before we start?" Wes didn't know what to say. He was one of the more fortunate campers at the result of the war.

He could see her trying fight back tears and it was entirely understandable and okay. She could show her range of emotions in front of him, he wasn't ever going to judge or think she was weak for it, he was going to be there for her.
"You're right, Duke. Thank you. I'll be okay since I still have you and Aj." He smiled slightly and nodded to her. He didn't need to tell her she'd always have them by her side. "I'll ask Andy when the time is right. I'm sure she's going through hell right now."
Duke bowed his head to her statement. "Of course. It was just a suggestion on my part. We can make tombstones for them here if you like in memory of them and somewhere to honor that memory. Or not. Just whatever you need of me, I'm here."

Image Alex lead the way back down to the beach and the amount of pyres and Duke trailed behind at a respectable distance. He stood tall with his fellow camp mates until Ajax requested Duke do the honors. He stepped up to Aj and hovered his fingers by the torch until it caught flame then clasped his hands in front of him. "Actually I would like to say a few words."
Duke cleared his throat. "I pray their souls haven't departed yet because I want them to know about the heroes they were and how their death was not in vain and that each of them and each of us, are a valuable member of camp. We all stood and fought bravely against an army most of us thought was a myth and it was because of these people and their sacrifice that the world is a safer place and our homes are still standing. No amount of thanks will be able to cover it. They deserve the absolute best in the next life. They will be remembered."
Duke nodded to Ajax and stepped away, avoiding eye contact as he stepped back into the crowd.

Alex's Speech: #D63B71 --- Ajax's Speech: #085804

Image As Duke made his speech, Ajax swallowed and looked away. They didn't just feel like other members, they were like family in a way, and every word that passed Duke's lips, sunk deep into Zeus' son.

Duke nodded to Ajax once he his speech had come to an end, then headed back into the crowd, avoiding eye contact with anyone. Alex's eyes followed Duke, her expression looking proud as her hand reached out to him. "That was perfect," she whispered, a smile appearing on her lips. No one clapped since it would be inappropriate at a funeral, but they respected Duke for being the first to step up. Ajax decided he was next.

"I can't really say much since Duke pretty much did an amazing job at covering everything for us. Thanks, man." he nodded before looking around at the others. "but I do have a couple of things to add." as he held the flaming torch that Duke had lit for him, the warm glow illuminated the right side of his face as the rest remained in shadow. "Don't ever feel guilty for still being alive. They'll be watching over every single one of us. Make them proud, and keep their memories alive." his gaze landed on Andy for a second. He was glad she had decided to show up. He managed a smile towards her before quickly returning to the rest of what he wanted to say, "We must live... for them. This isn't goodbye forever. We'll see them again. One day." Ajax lit the first pyre, causing someone to sob as it was time to finally say goodbye to their loved one. Ajax looked over at them with furrowed brows, pain etched into his features since he could imagine exactly what they were going through. He made his way towards the next pyre.

ImageOnce all the pyres were lit, the flames grew, reaching up towards the nights' sky. Alex's hand steadily slipped into Dukes, her eyes on the burning pyres as tears softly trickle down her cheeks.

Even the man in the moon seemed to be looking down towards them with sadness in his eyes.

As their souls departed from their hosts, almost everyone gasped with shock. Alex watched as wisps of silvery light danced around the other souls, and around their loved ones before making their way towards the heavens. Alex's eyes remained full of tears. It was the most beautiful thing she had ever witnessed. They almost looked like fairies dancing and leaving trails behind them.

Nothing to see here. Move along, 2724483.

She narrowed her eyes playfully on Wes after he stole a quick kiss. "Just had to make sure I wasn't dreaming," he said. She laughed lightly and looked away shaking her head to conceal the faint pink that had touched her cheeks.

It was colder near the gathering around the pyres despite the crowd and body heat and she felt Wes's hand take hers and sighed out gently in relief but kept her gaze trained ahead.

Duke stepped to the front and gave his speech, giving credit and respect to those who died in battle. Every word he spoke was true and sunk in for Trinity. It wasn't an exaggeration, they had stopped an invasion and saved countless homes and lives.

ImageAjax offered forth his own speech, not just for the deceased but the ones left still standing and having to clean up the pieces of the war. "Don't ever feel guilty for still being alive." Those words stuck like glue and echoed in her head. She didn't often feel guilty in battle scenarios but many of her comrades did. Trinity didn't even know a person could feel that way - guilty of not saving someone in time maybe, but their existence... Trinity gave Wes's hand a gentle squeeze.

The pyres were lit and it soon turned to a beautiful show of silver wisps that even Trinity was entranced in. But she wasn't so lost in it's beauty that she forgot they were once bodies of people she knew, no longer in her plane of existence. Trinity turned to watch Wes's expressions carefully and her eyes couldn't help but dip to the stump where another limb should have been. No way was he joining the others soon. She slipped her hand out his and she spoke only after he had absorbed the peaceful display of their souls departing.

“I don’t know if you’ve got your own cabin or you’re required back at the med hut but you can sleep with me whenever you want,” she told him quietly. Her eyes widened. “Not 'sleep sleep' with me. You can...” Trinity sighed out in defeat. “You know what I mean,” she said.

“I could actually use some company these next few nights,” she confessed, her voice turning to a whisper. Something to keep nightmares at bay and stop her nerves and senses from overdrive, something to keep her warm and Wes himself close rather than stress if he was okay.

Andy stood silent towards the back of the crowd, her foot mindlessly tracing circles in the sand as her hands picked at the hem of her shirt. Her attention was drawn back to the funeral when she heard Duke mention he wanted to say a few words. Her gaze fell to the sand as he spoke, each word sinking into her heavier and heavier.

"...They will be remembered." She prayed she'd remember. Andy already knew this would be next to impossible to get over. She's never lost anyone close to her because all she's ever had was her father. Now, she got a brother, someone else she cared for, only to have him ripped away from her. The only thing that could hurt worse is forgetting... Forgetting Daniel. His face, his smile...

Everything was like white noise while Ajax's words echoed in her head as he spoke. "Don't ever feel guilty for still being alive..." Andy was barely able to manage an upwards glance towards him, only catching a glimpse of his smile towards her.

Don't feel guilty. She inhaled sharply, clutching at her abdomen as the tears ran down her cheeks. Andy's knees were barely holding her up, as her breaths shook her body. Gradually, something materialized in the palm of her hand. She raised her hand before her, slowly pulling back her fingers to find a locket in her palm. Part of her hoped it was her own subconscious, but deep down she knew... it was her mother's doing. As the pyres lit, Andy had half a mind to chuck the necklace into the flames and walk away, but instead she managed to open it with her trembling fingers.

Inside was two photographs. One, of Daniel. The second, of the last moment Andy shared with him before the battle. She gasped, bringing her hand to her mouth as tears flooded down her cheeks. She clutched the locket to her chest, as she stared at the sand. She couldn't bring herself to look at the pyres knowing that Daniel wasn't among them and that she didn't have a chance to say goodbye.

Without a word, and her grasp tight on the locket, Andy snaked her way through the crowd of crying campers, beelining for the woods. At first she made her way towards her cabin, but began to drift away the more she walked. That's where she'd be looked for and she didn't want to be found. Not now. She appreciated the care and sympathies but she was tired of the sorry's, the condolences... everything. She wanted David. He wouldn't try to sugar coat it, or tell her it'd get better. He understood more than anyone what she was feeling.

Next thing she knew, she found herself at Jennova's grave on the cliff. With a sigh, she sat down beside it with her locket still tight in hand. Her gaze slowly drifted over to the grave stone. Andy's shaky had rested on it. "I know... I know we didn't know each other well," her voice croaked. "But could you look out for him down there?... Please?" she begged, patting the gravestone.

***

Wes remained silent and respectful as Duke and Ajax spoke their reassuring words to everyone else. No one seemed to get away unscathed. Everyone was bandaged, or weeping. Even a lot of both. Injured body and soul. He felt guilty for feeling thankful that all he lost was his arm, and that... Well, his best friend and Trinity would all still in one piece. But he still wished he could have done more. His gaze fell to Andy who stood hidden in the crowd on the other side of the pyre. He didn't even realize... Not until that moment that Daniel was no where to be found.

His heart sank, taking in her appearance. Andy looked like a ghost. A shell of the vibrant person she was. Sure, they weren't the closest. But he never saw her without a smile on her face, or a look of kick ass determination. Now, she was just... Lost. Wes' gaze fell to the ground before he shut his eyes, taking in a deep breath. When he felt Trinity's hand squeeze his, he opened his eyes to take in the sight of the pyres going up in flames. But through the smoke, he saw Andy turn and leave when no one else was paying attention. He had half a mind to follow her until he was distracted by Trinity removing her hand from his.

“I don’t know if you’ve got your own cabin or you’re required back at the med hut but you can sleep with me whenever you want." Maybe it was everything going on, but the statement didn't hit him fast enough for him to make a comment before Trinity started to ramble. “Not 'sleep sleep' with me. You can...” She sighed. “You know what I mean." Trinity paused for a moment before whispering, “I could actually use some company these next few nights."

"I think Andy rebuilt my cabin for me... After the, ya know... Hydra." Wes gave one last side glance towards Andy motioning towards her with his thumb, but she was no where to be found. He finally focused on Trinity, figuring if Andy wanted to talk to someone, she would have stuck around. He cleared his throat once he realized what she was mentioning. No longer focusing on Andy and where she was. "But I can stay on your couch... however long you need it."

He gave her a soft smile, reaching out his hand to gently rub her upper arm. "Plus... I think the nurses would actually kill me if I tried to sleep without some sort of supervision. Apparently the meds they have me on or whatever could cause some serious problems if I abuse them... Or something like that." He gave a halfhearted chuckle and shrug.

Image"That was perfect," Alex whispered to him. He wasn't expecting it but he received praise for his speech and felt somewhat assured by it. While it was the right thing to do, it was still incredibly nerve racking to speak on the dead's behalf and the survivors especially since he hadn't formed an intimate bond with anyone that passed, but some of his camp mates did. Duke smiled slightly to her in silent thanks.

"I can't really say much since Duke pretty much did an amazing job at covering everything for us. Thanks, man." Ajax had said grabbing Duke's attention and Duke met his eyes in acknowledgement. "But I do have a couple of things to add. Don't ever feel guilty for still being alive. They'll be watching over every single one of us. Make them proud, and keep their memories alive. We must live... for them. This isn't goodbye forever. We'll see them again. One day," Ajax said. He lit the first pyre which caused a sob among the crowd.

Death was always a possibility and they had the chance to leave. Things didn't need to be like this. Or maybe he told himself that so he didn't go into teddy bear mode, hugging those who were grieving and needed support. Duke's eyes sought out the steeley child of war to see how she responded before watching each pyre light up the sky and illuminate people's sombre features. He felt something touch his hand as the last pyre was lit and realized it was Alex's hand. At first he thought it was an accident but a brief look at her proved it wasn't. Duke closed his hand around hers and gave her a gentle squeeze as he turned his gaze back to the spectacle ahead.

He stood with Alex for some time even when their souls had long departed until he eventually turned to her. "You should go hug your brother. He's had a long day," he told her softly and he knew for a fact that's where Alex would feel most assured and it would comfort Ajax too.

Alex's Speech: #D63B71 --- Ajax's Speech: #085804

Image When Duke closed his hand around hers and gave it a squeeze, it felt like he had managed within that split second to pull her out from her spiraling depressing thoughts. She didn't feel like herself anymore, so maybe at the end of this term, she could spend time getting to know herself again and to find herself.

The Alex that everyone had met during her first day at Camp Athens was still there, just buried beneath the layers of rubble that had fallen onto her, crushing the very warmth and life out of her. Some days she felt as though she was suffocating on the pain that crept beneath her chest, but she never allowed it to control her completely. She had already tasted the darkness, and being trapped in it would surely destroy the person her parents had brought her up to be. Alex needed to remain true to herself in order to keep her mother's memory alive, and her grandmother's. She turned to Duke, "This shouldn't happen" she told him. Most of them were still just kids/teens. They should have been able to go on until a good old age instead of, well... this.

With the warm glow from the burning pyres, Alex could feel her body slowly shutting down on her from exhaustion - mentally and physically. "You should go hug your brother. He's had a long day," Duke told her, his voice soft.
She nodded. He was right. Her brother had to try his best to comfort his grieving girlfriend, stay strong for sister, but also to remain strong and level headed for the rest of the camp since they all constantly looked up to him for guidance.

Image With one gently touch to Duke's arm, she began to walk past him, heading in her brother's direction. He was talking to one of the others who had thanked him for giving them a respectful funeral. "Please, don't thank me. I just did what anyone else would have done, okay?" He held his hand on the top of their arm, giving them a smile. "get some rest.." they smiled and headed off with the others, making their way towards their cabins. Ajax sighed as he watched them leave. If only he could do more for them, like.. have the power to bring back those they have lost, but not even a God had the power of resurrection.

Image Without a word, for now, Alex wrapped her arms around her brother. They held each other in a sibling embrace as Ajax clung onto her for dear life since he was now more scared than ever to lose her. It had almost been her on one of those pyres tonight. He felt like his thoughts were being selfish since he was glad it hadn't happened to her. "Everything is going to be okay..." she said, her voice muffled against his shoulder. He closed his eyes with his hand on her back to hold her in place as the world around him faded into the background.



Hopefully, next year was going to be better...
