The Gods predate man. Their reign powerful, eternal and revered. But since the dawn of the Gods, there have always been those sworn to end Olympus. The golden throne, the seat of the righteous, king of the Gods, Zeus. It is the core of their world. Many seek to destroy it, dethrone Zeus and end the reign of the Gods.

Camp Athens, a safe place for demigods, children of the Gods. A place for them to live, grow and train. That was the intent. The demigods were never supposed to be the warriors for the Gods. Their parents wanted them to grow up safe from the world that threatens to end them. But the ruler of the Underworld, Hades, sought after the golden throne for himself, the demigods had no choice but to fight.

The campers faced many trials that tested them on levels far greater than they ever imaged. It was but the first day of the summer, demigods flooding into the camp, when a minotaur stormed its way through. A distraction while a son of Zeus, Ajax, was stabbed by an Underworld blade and poisoned. When things seemed to die down, it was only the quiet before the storm. Ajax was later taken prisoner by Hades, only set free when his soul was taken from him in exchange for a daughter of Hecate.

And all the while, when some of the most powerful demigods were nowhere to be found, the rest of the campers had to band together to take down their toughest foe… A Hydra. Then there was death… at the hands of a God and at the hands of a daughter of Zeus. It seemed, when at their weakest, Hades attacked.

The war. Something the demigods had been preparing for, but never thought would come. Giants and minions flooded their way onto the grounds of camp. The Gods stood side by side with their children in a fight for Olympus. It tested them more than anything had before… And in the end, they succeeded. But not without great loss. Wounded, weak and broken, the demigods came together victorious.

It’s been a year since that war. New demigods have found their way to the camp. The heroes of the war found ways to cope with their losses and train harder. Although the war is over, no one can rest. Something lurks in the distance, like a storm on the horizon. They don’t know what it is or when it will come… But they must be ready.

WIPs will not be accepted x / / x WIP tends to lead to people assuming they do not have to complete CS. So, due to that I will not accept a character until the CS is completely finished. It helps us and you to have a fully flushed out character before you post. Password 1 : Who was stabbed with an underworld blade?

Demigods x / / x There will only be two demigods per God. This keeps the number of characters at a balanced manageable level. Discussion could be made to potentially add another God, but we don't want to overload the RP. Also the deceased campers will remain, and prohibit the possibility of a new camper their place. Their life and death had significance in the first year of Camp Athens, and for other reasons it is necessary.

Reservations x / / x Reserving a character will be done through the OOC discussion board. All reservations must include the God/Goddess you intend as the parent, FC, how often you are online and average word count per post; along with the answers to the passwords. If you want more than one character you are welcome. But, if you would like to reserve both child of a single god you must ask. Depending on the circumstances it may not work for diversity's sake.

Character Guidelines x / / x Throughout the balancing of the characters, a good mix of male and female roles would be appreciated. That doesn't necessarily mean each God has a male and female child, but that throughout an even amount would help the RP be balanced. Ideally, FCs should look close to the age of your character. Abilities shall be taken from the provided list. If you are wanting your character to have an ability not listed, please contact me and we shall discuss it.

Inactivity x / / x Inactivity and ghosting is a plague in RPG. It seems people cannot stick to RPs for the life of them. I get it, life happens... It happens to all of us. But, we all want RPs to succeed. The first year of Camp Athens made it to the end, but by that day there was only 5 writers out of the numerous that were originally part of the RP. So, that being said, if life happens please just contact us and let us know, we are very understanding. If you're MIA from OOC, posting or PMs without explanation or word, we do reserve the right to write past your character if it's keeping us in limbo. I'd rather you back out of the RP versus disappearing. Password 2 : Which Demigods are deceased?

General Rules x / / x Violence, adult language and adult situations will happen so if you cannot handle that you may not want to join. I encourage romance, it’s fun and we all enjoy complicated romance stories. Kissing and what not is fine, but when this get handsy... or naked. Just fade to black, and have your characters imply it later or whatever. We have imaginations, plus site rules and stuff :p Don’t control someone else’s character without their ok, this includes their NPCs. Also this meant to be fun so please no OOC fighting. Any issues can be directed through me and I'll handle it :)

Eve had to restrain herself from glaring at her brother. She’d gone round to his cabin with good intentions, hoping a good dose of gossip would snap him out of his moody funk. All she received for her efforts were his scowls. Pete nodded across the dancefloor, ”Looks like lover boy found someone new.” Eve’s eyes followed his and saw Mason starting to dance with Iliana, her eyebrow spiked upwards at the bizarre pairing.

She looked back at her brother with a coy smile. “So you were listening today.” She decided that she just had to investigate further so she gave a half salute to Pete and Liv, “Laters. Enjoy being all sulky you two.” Then she delved into the party, heading towards the dancing pair, getting there in time to catch Mason’s smirk towards Heath. It didn’t take a genius to figure out what the smirk was about and Eve was almost proud to see him pushing someone else’s buttons.

She decided pretty quickly to help and sidled up to Heath and the guy he was a talking to, hearing the end of Heath’s comment about watching Iliana dance. She smiled up at both of them then flicked her eyes to dancing couple with a smirk “I get to see Mason dancing? Is it my birthday?” She eyed up Heath, flicking her eyes from him to Iliana and back a few times. Deliberately making herself look concerned as she leaned towards him. “You know, I’m super impressed with you. I thought you’d be over there all growly and ripping the two of them apart.”

She placed a hand on his arm using it to influence his thoughts, Be protective of Iliana. Keep her away from Mason. She didn’t say the words out loud, not wanting to give the game away, so her magic would be less binding. But if he was already feeling a little protective or conflicted, her magic would seep in and mould his thoughts like putty.

Dropping her hand she shifted her attention to the brunette with Heath. She eyed him over, he looked familiar, but surely she would have noted a good looking guy like him, not to mention she’d be aware if Mason had a friend. She didn’t count Andy. “And you,” She chucked a thumb towards where Mason was off dancing. “I would have bet serious money on that guy having no friends.” She laughed running her hands through her hair and lowering her voice to a false whisper. “Between you and me, I think he fancies himself as some kind of big scary wolf.” She flashed him a playful grin, to show that she meant no harm. Playing the friendly card until she knew what kind of guy she was dealing with. “I’m Eve.”

Son of Zeus || Hex: Green Outfit for Party


Image "Hey, did I miss much at breakfast?" Duke's voice broke his concentration from the flames of the fire. Thank the Gods it was Duke that found him because he wasn't sure if he'd be able to tolerate anyone else at this point, especially not those who thrived from the very sight of drama. Where could he begin with that question?

As good as a mate Duke was, Ajax didn't want to keep piling his problems onto him all the time, even if he said he didn't mind. He kept it brief. "We're on a break for now." he knew he didn't have to say much else as Duke would understand exactly who he meant. "Oh and... one of the new campers riled Andy up to the point of Andy almost killing her."

Duke patted his shoulder. The situation couldn't exactly be reversed anyway, and it wasn't like it was a nightmare that he could eventually wake up from, so there was no point in wallowing in self-pity about what he could have done to prevent it from happening. Even though for a while he had a hunch, part of him still hoped that he was just being paranoid. Anyway, at least his friend was here. Ajax could also count on him to help cheer him up which was better for both of them. Funky moods were no place for anywhere that requested fun. "You know I noticed Alex has all these personalized items, her sword, and necklace. What if we made you something. Something fit for the future ruler? It might not be from Zeus himself but we can try."

Ajax laughed. "Please don't start addressing me as 'your majesty.' and I don't know... you know I'm not much for gifts, but I am curious as to what you may have in mind.."

"I might see if I can speed the process of food up. Want to see a master chef?" Duke grinned, and Ajax laughed.

"Good, because I'm starving. Go for it." He stood up from where he was sat as Duke hovered over the barbeque.

"Do you mind if I..." The cookers moved aside and Duke touched the BBQ turning up the heat. "Here." Duke threw a raw burger underarm at Ajax, who could it, even if he did almost drop it. "Fry that with some voltage." He chuckled and used the spatula to flip the cooking food around.

"Oh, so it's a cook-off now, huh?" he chuckled too and began to roast the raw meat in his hands. It began to smoke, and in no time it had turned out as a deep brown color which he slapped it on between two baps, covering it in his favorite condiment... Tomato sauce! he made an absolute masterpiece out of it, towering it a little with bits of salad and those little soft square cheeses. "Now look at that." He held it up, admiring it. "I call it...." he rummaged through his brain looking for the correct name/title to give it. "Well... I don't know what to call it, but I know I want to eat it." he chuckled, taking a bite out of it and moaning. It tasted so damn good too, but probably not as good as what Duke was cooking up. He would be ready for seconds.

Andy was about turn the handle and go back inside when she heard music just about blare behind her. Her face scrunched up slightly at the sheer volume of the party. She never remembered it being that loud. Who in the hell was in control of the volume? Maybe it was her subconscious telling her to just go inside or was it telling her to go to the party?

"It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life. For me. And I'm feeling good."

Andy's heart skipped a beat when she heard Daniel's—Keith's voice. What in the hell was he doing? She slowly spun around on her heels, glancing over her shoulder in the direction of the music. "Keith?"

He did some showy moves, flipping the microphone and kicking in beat with the song. "Oh freedom is mine, and I know how I feel." Andy's brows furrowed in confusion. Maybe it was everything that's been going on but nothing was sinking in. Was this some cruel prank that Keith thought would be funny? Was this Daniel? Had she officially lost her mind and was hallucinating?

"Andy, if you don't go to the party, who's gonna control your brother?" Daniel then extended his arms toward her expectantly.

"Daniel?!" her voice cracked. Andy ran toward him, jumping over the steps down from her porch. She practically leaped into his arms, nearly knocking him over when she collided into him. She held him so tight, that he'd probably complain about not being able to breathe but she didn't care.

"Hi, sis," he said quietly as he held her.

"How are you here? You died!" Tears fell from her eyes, ruining her makeup... again. But she couldn't care less. Gods did she miss him. "I can't believe you're here. I've missed you so much," she whispered.

"Now come on, things to do, people to see. 50 dollars says I can get 90% of camp's population to dance."

Daniel tried to pull her away and hold her at an arm's length. But Andy quickly wrapped her arms back around him, shaking her head. "Just one more minute, please?" She practically begged. Andy had no idea how time passed for him or what it was like. But for her, it was an eternity. Over a year without her brother. He could spare another moment or two before they went to the party. Gods knew she needed it.

Andy sighed as she finally let him free from her grasp, almost scared that if she let go of him, he'd vanish. Like it all was an illusion in her head. "Did you need to complete that outfit with a big long fluffy coat?"

She managed to actually laugh as she ran her fingers under her eyes, trying her best to fix her makeup. "It's not like I'm wearing a sequin jumpsuit," she quipped in response. Gods how long had it been since she had a normal lighthearted conversation? It felt nice. As Andy and Daniel walked side by side to the party, it almost felt like some of the weight had been lifted from her shoulders. For a brief moment she could breathe. But unfortunately, that didn't last long.

Andy's paced slowed when they reached the party as her brother quickly made his way toward Mason. On any other day she would have been right beside him but they still weren't talking. And if she smelled Eve's perfume on him it'd make her nauseous. She stood there awkwardly at the edge of the tree line scanning the people who had arrived. But before she saw anyone of worth a red head popped up right in front of her with a smile. She remembered the girl from earlier, gossiping about Andy's personal life like it was some trash TV. Suffice it to say, she did not return the smile.

"Hey. My name is Penelope, but you can call me Nelly." Andy didn't care. Maybe under different circumstances she would have been her old bubbly self. But not now. It was hard enough for Andy to bite her tongue the first time. "Um . . I am sorry if what I said earlier this morning hurt your feelings. I am known to say what I am thinking and it's gotten me into plenty of trouble. Just know that whatever my actions are in the future, I would never intentionally hurt anyone. So yeah sorry."

"Just leave my personal life out of it," Andy said before she felt an arm drape across her shoulder. Some of her tension faded away when she saw it was Trinity, even managing a soft smile.

"Look who decided to show." Andy rolled her eyes playfully at the comment. Like Trinity would have let her stay locked up in her cabin. "Hey Nelly, I'm Trinity." She gave Nelly a firm handshake, which Andy could only imagine was far more aggressive than it looked. She had to resist the urge to laugh. Trin wasn't the subtle type, one of the many reasons they were friends.

Trinity turned her attention to Andy. "Did you want to get a drink, Ando?" She was doing what any good best friend would do, getting her out of an awkward encounter. In time she'd forget Nelly's comments, but it was still fresh and she was in no mood to fake friendly. Trin's head then leaned toward hers as she spoke lowly, "You good?"

Andy held her friend's gaze and gave such a minor shake of her head, anyone else might have missed it. But it didn't seem Trinity was good either. The arrival of Wes caused the blonde to instantly tense. "I know that look," Andy said quietly.

But before she was able to tug Trinity away toward the drinks table, or just far enough away from a private conversation, Nelly had more to say. "Hello, Trinity. Nice evening huh? I got in last night so that's why I am late. I am still learning the ropes here so if you have any recommendations, I'll gladly take them. Is this ya'll's first year here or have both of you been here before?"

Andy's arm wrapped around the middle of Trinity's back, her hand gently grasping her friend's side. "Sorry, not to be rude." Although she kind of did. "But we need a moment in private."

Without anything else to add to the present conversation, she led Trin away, slowly walking them toward the drinks. Which, coincidentally, was where Wes was. "Do you think maybe you're being a little hard on him?" Andy asked, nodding her head toward Wes who's back was toward them. "He never questions you about your male friends." She saw the look Trinity made when she saw him with Alex. She understood her jealously, it was natural. But Wes had better tastes than Alex. "I doubt he has a dishonest bone in his body. He's arguably one of the nicest guys at camp. He's crazy about you... And he makes you happy." With her final words, Andy slowed them both to a stop, turning to face Trinity.

"Don't be dumb like me and ruin a good thing." She gave Trin's arm a reassuring squeeze with a smile. "I'm going to go take a shot... or like five," Andy joked. "But you should go talk to him. 5 bucks says, he's already forgiven you." Not that Trinity was in the wrong, she was entitled to her own feelings. But if she tried to apologize, Wes was already over it. He was too infatuated with her to stay mad.

Andy retreated, walking backwards towards the refreshments. She motioned her thumb toward Wes's back and gave Trinity a wink. She then spun around and went to the far end of the drinks table, giving Wes and, in particular, Alex, a wide birth. Have a good time. Don't think about it and don't get too drunk. Easy. Then it seemed the second that all went through her head, it went out the window. Andy took two shots of whatever was out, then grabbed a bear. No more.

She started toward the bonfire and almost froze when she saw the back of Ajax. Andy took a deep breath, not wanting to divert her path. She felt like that would be obvious and someone would notice, someone like Mason. But he wasn't dumb and probably could tell without anything being said. Andy slowly approached and took a seat on a different log than the one he and Duke sat on that was a couple feet away. After taking a couple sips of her beer, she sparred a glance toward Ajax as he stood up to follow after his friend. When she caught his gaze, Andy gave him a slight wave of her fingers and a brief smile before he left. It was weird. They were so close but felt miles apart. Any other party she'd be right there beside him, maybe even sitting in his lap if he had his way. But, now they were like strangers.

Evelyn did not seem pleased about Sylas asking her for a favor. And here he thought she'd love the opportunity to have the upper hand, a moment to revel in the fact that he came to her for help. Regardless of how minor his ask was. After a moment she took the bottle. "I would but you didn't even say please." Her smug expression made Sylas chuckle. "In fact, you should be begging me for this small little favor of yours. Or at least make your case of why I should help you," she added as she hid the bottle behind her back.

Sylas took the bait stepping forward to close a little bit of the distance between them. "Please, Evelyn, would you satisfy the demon in me by charming that little bottle?" His brow raised while the rest of his face remained fairly serious. He leaned his head in so that his lips were near her ear as he spoke softly. "I'll make a fair trade for your services." Sylas pulled his head back just enough so he could hold her gaze. "I'll give you one question," he said as he held up his index finger. "Any question and I'll answer it, honestly. No lies, omissions or ambiguity."

After a moment or so, Evelyn withdrew the bottle from behind her back and held it out to him. "Our little secret."

"My lips are sealed," he grinned as he took the bottle from her delicate fingers.

"Don't get too excited. Really wanting somebody varies on intention." Sylas nodded his head and gave her a silent salute with the top of the bottle to his forehead. "I look forward to seeing who you're after. Good luck."

Sylas might have added a comment about how he didn't need luck, or something else around those lines. Instead he gave her a wink and headed toward the bonfire where he planned to announce his fun activity. But then he saw the big idiot arrive with none other than his sister, which temporarily diverted his attention.

The fresh air from their walk to the beach cleared Sloane's head. Being lightheaded and dizzy was not an ideal condition while drinking. Not that she was the drinking type. She stopped just outside the tree line, taking everything in. Nothing too crazy was going on yet, some dancing and drinking, but fairly calm. Maybe she'd be lucky enough to wonder about for an hour then disappear back to Liam's cabin, away from everyone. She was about to take a step forward in the general direction of the bonfire when she caught sight of her brother beelining straight for them. "He's coming this way," Sloane said under her breath toward Liam, but didn't divert her eyes from her brother's fiery and direct gaze.

Before Sloane could even try to grab Liam's arm and divert them in a different direction, Sylas was there. "Sloane. Liam." He gave his best fake smile as he grabbed Liam's shoulder. "How's the new roomie situation going?" he asked with a grin and a tight squeeze of the brute's deltoid. While they were still in physical contact, Sylas let his powers flow into Liam. Kick her out. You don't want Sloane. She's a burden. Pathetic. After a moment when nothing happened, he moved his hand from Liam to point at his sister. "You used your powers on him... didn't you?"

Sloane shifted where she stood, her fingers twiddling and tugging at the sleeves of her shirt. She didn't say anything, just sideways glanced up at Liam before looking back to her brother. Sylas shook his finger as he laughed smugly. "She's a smart one isn't she?... Makes me wonder what she sees in a big idiot like you?"

Sloane quickly spun on her heels, moving between the two. She turned her back to Sylas as she pressed her hands to Liam's abdomen, trying to stop him from lashing out. "Don't. He's just trying to get under your skin. If you to hit him first, you'll look like the bad guy," She said quietly as she looked up at him. Sloane wouldn't be able to stop Liam if he was set on murdering Sylas in front of everyone. But she hoped he'd listen to her rather than her brother.

"Yes, tame your beast. It's only a matter of time before your control over him fades. And then what, dear sister?"

"I don't control him," Sloane replied coldly, before looking over her shoulder toward her brother. "I'm not you."

"How adorable. You asked his permission didn't you?" Sylas shook his head, laughing softly as he tossed the bottle in his hand. "She's obviously taking advantage of you big boy. You fought her battles, give up your home... even let her worm her way into your mind willingly. Is she that good in bed?"

Sloane's jaw clenched as her gaze moved to the ground and her hands fell from Liam's chest. Her cheeks began to flush, getting so red it nearly outshined her lipstick. "Who are we kidding? Sloane here is a prude." Sylas raised his hand to stroke his sister's cheek with his index finger. "I doubt she's ever been kissed." He chuckles before wrapping his arm around Sloane's shoulders. "Let's change that, shall we?"

Her eyes went wide as Sylas tugged her away from Liam. Although his face was friendly and he appeared to be walking with her amiably, his grip on her arm was strong, almost challenging her to struggle against him. She was barely able to keep up with his long strides, frequently glancing over her shoulder toward Liam. She didn't want him to start a fight, not here in front of everyone. That'd give her brother what he wanted. He was going to continue to push Liam and herself until one of them caved.

Sylas came to a halt near the bonfire, but didn't release his hold on Sloane, instead leading them both to step up on a log. He raised his free hand to his lips letting out a loud whistle. Once he had everyone's attention, he gave a charming smile before speaking. "I don't know about all of you, but my sister and I think that what this party really needs... Is a game!" He holds up the bottle, wiggling it slightly.

He jumps down from the log, leaving Sloane to slowly step down on her own while he walks around the fire. "I'm sure you've all heard of 7 minutes in heaven." Sylas smirked. "I was content with a simple game of spin the bottle, but Sloane's itching for something a little more exciting." He slowed his pace until he was standing before Andy. "Andy, would you mind conjuring up something a little more... private?"

Andy slowly sat up right, tapping her fingers against her beer. She didn't want to be a part of this game, but Sylas didn't look like he was going to let anyone get away with sitting out. She sighed, before extending her left hand with her palm up. As her hand raised, a closet rose up from the ground on a farther edge of the beach, a hundred or so feet away.

Sylas smiled as he turned back around to face the rest of the campers. "I'm sure you all are familiar with the rules." He tapped the brim of the bottle to his bottom lip as he scanned everyone. "Now who should go first?" At one point he slowed down before Sloane. "It'd be unfair to give it to you first. After all, this was your idea... You'll just have to wait your turn." He grinned looking between her and Liam.

But then he spun around and walked directly up to a particular blonde, that he was very interested to learn more about. Eve. Sylas flipped the bottle in his hand, before holding it out to her. "The honor is yours."

Sloane crossed her arms over her chest. She hated when he did stuff like this, spun things around on her. He made it seem like this was her master plan, so if she left... Well, she couldn't. With a sigh, she took a seat on a log as far from her brother as possible. This was going to be a long night.

"You've never allowed one arm to get you down, though, which is pretty damn awesome if you ask me."

Wes chuckled softly. "Well, thank you. I couldn't very well bitch about something that was my own fault, now could I?"

Alex hooked her arm in his as they headed through the woods toward the party. She seemed happy at the little decorations of lights leading to the beach and the prospect of a party. It did always seem to lighten moods for most of the campers. Wes just hoped that it might be an opportunity for him and Trinity to... move forward maybe. If that was still an option. He hated it that she was mad at him for something he didn't do. Or maybe he did and he was just too much of an idiot to realize it. Wes just hoped, whatever it was, he could fix it.

"Let's make this a night to remember."

He smiled toward her, then quickly ducked away when she tried to tickle him. "Woah, none of that." He laughed, holding his index finger up in contradiction.

Wes slowly trailed after Alex toward the concession table, where there was an ample amount of food and a variety of drinks available. He hadn't quite realized how completely famished he was until he smelled the food. He wasted no time fixing up a burger and snagging a beer to drink along with it. He barely ate all day with his stomach in constant knots. Now with food in front of him, he had to fight to urge to shove it down in a single bite.

"If there's any dancing... you going to ask Trinity?"

He froze with the burger held to his lips. "I want to... I just... I don't know if she'd agree."

Wes took a large bite out of his food as he turned around to observe the party. He froze, mouth full, when he saw Trinity standing a few feet in front of him. He stood there... awkwardly as he tried to quickly chew and swallow the the food. "Trinity... You look gorgeous." Wes looked awkwardly between his burger, beer and then Trinity. He quickly set what he held onto the table and dusted his hands off on his pants. "Can I get you a drink?"

Shortly after he asked, Sylas made a loud show beckoning everyone to join in on a game. Wes didn't know how he felt about partaking. He didn't need another reason for her to be mad at him. He slowly took a step toward Trinity, motioning toward the bonfire. "Did you want to join? I wouldn't kiss anyone... just stand there awkwardly for 7 minutes." He quickly continued adding another comment. "I mean, you can kiss whoever you want though... Or we could just walk around. Or I could leave you alone. I just want you to enjoy yourself... to be happy."

Gods was he putting his foot in his mouth. Wes awkwardly chewed on his bottom lip. He didn't know how to fill the silence, so instead he grabbed another beer. He popped it open, then held it out toward her, almost like a silent peace offering. He was content to wait until she decided his fate for the evening.




7 minutes in heaven


1. The person who receives the bottle, spins it and it will land on whomever they want. Doesn't have to be for romantic reasons, just whomever they desire.

2. They are locked in the closet for 7 minutes.

3. Afterwards the person who the bottle landed on (not who spun it) picks who goes next.

disclaimer: I suggest writing a collab between the two characters going into the closet, so that it isn't a bunch of back and forth posts and so it doesn't take forever for one round. It could be easy enough to include the spinning of the bottle, time in the closet and choosing the next person in a single collab.

Any questions, let me know :)

Image They'd talk later about the details. He mentally promised. For now the priority was for Andy and him to have fun and own the party.

Peer pressure mixed with a dash of guilt trip worked every time. But he couldn't revel in the moment because some different faces approached him. "Good evening, um, Keith? Did something happen to you? You look different," Heath observed.

Mason outright laughed and left with the quiet girl which seemed to distract Heath entirely.

"Sorry, not use to seeing my sister dance," Heath explained. Daniel looked between the dancing pair and the brother. Daniel nodded, seeing it already. "I don't know if you know this, but Iliana and I aren't blood related. My father adopted her after her own biological father was killed. Anyway, back to that question?"

Well that was just a casual bomb to drop on his head. Daniel blinked stunned Heath was able to say it all without emotion. "I guess I'm sorry to hear if you are?" Daniel said uncertainly. But as Heath seemed eager to press on, Daniel adopted a less sympathetic and uncertain attitude with a clap of his hand. "Back to that question though, I'm glad you've noticed my new look. A lot has happened. I caught the love bug, lost my virginity, tried make up, Ethan's serenity inducement is having max effect." The things he listed off probably served as a slap to the son of Athena's pride and intelligence. But he didn't lie to be harmful, he lied to be bluntly evasive. "It's a long story and the party's not the place for it. But you can call me Daniel if you like."

"Hey, Cherise's boy toy - grab us some beers and get some good music going!" A girl called out. Daniel frowned at her charm but obeyed one request, the music was something he was happy to provide. Something upbeat to get some head bopping or toe-tapping from the reluctant movers and dancers to fully indulge.

Daniel was about to head over and grab four beers when another girl approached Heath and him. “I get to see Mason dancing? Is it my birthday?” Was a blonde's way of entering the conversation. “You know, I’m super impressed with you. I thought you’d be over there all growly and ripping the two of them apart.” Was the guy really like that? He seemed to have a bit more composure than that but when it came to sisters he supposed anything could happen.

Daniel watched his mini dare take place with very tame actions and moves. He also saw Cherise and another girl with Ethan, dancing like clowns, bringing a warm smile to his lips. She was absolutely beautiful and carefree. “And you, I would have bet serious money on that guy having no friends.” Daniel glanced to the blonde. Normally that was a pretty safe bet. “Between you and me, I think he fancies himself as some kind of big scary wolf.” Daniel grinned as she did. Also, half accurate.

"I always thought a lone biker,” he jested back.

“I’m Eve.”

"Daniel," he said in turn, offering the girl a smile. "So you know Mason? Well...relatively?" he asked, wobbling his hand. The son of Hades managed to prove unpredictable time and time again.

He didn't get quality greeting time with the girl before a loud whistle pierced the party. Daniel turned towards it waiting for the big announcement from Evelyn's intimidating boyfriend. "I don't know about all of you, but my sister and I think that what this party really needs... Is a game!" A part of him wanted to whistle and applaud but that might show too much enthusiasm. "I'm sure you've all heard of 7 minutes in heaven. I was content with a simple game of spin the bottle, but Sloane's itching for something a little more exciting." Ah a modern day Janet. There was no denying 7 had the potential to be a lot more exciting. For the people locked in heaven. Or a small space for to feel claustrophobic. It was all in perception.

The dude crept around and bestowed the bottle upon Eve. "The honor is yours."

"Let the games begin," he muttered to himself, rocking back and forth on his heels with boy like excitement. However, seeing as Eve would soon be busy cozying up to whoever, Daniel looked around for some new company. The company he sought was like being doused in a cold shower. There were a few redheads on camp but fewer with the aura of Evelyn.

Daniel gravitated towards the girl who may not be locked in a closet until her turn and wasn't busy busting moves. He hooked his arm through hers and gestured off for a little walk. They could talk wherever she pleased, she wasn't the kind you could drag away. But he'd rather lead her a couple paces off, remaining in party vicinity of course.

He unwound his arm from hers and stood in front of her. There was something nerve-racking about standing before her as someone new in a sense with the whole crossover identity issues. He grinned bashfully and held out his arms. "Problem solved. Hi, I'm Daniel." He reached out for a shake. "I'm the son of Hecate, most my injuries are self-inflicted. I have a debatably bad habit of playing with illusions and conjurations." He pulled down his collar, exposing his neck and shoulder, "Wendigo conjuration," he rolled up a sleeve and pointed to the bite on his arm, "zombie," then he pulled up his top showing his abdomen, "crossbow," he smirked to Evelyn. They both knew the latter well.

He tapped to his last big scar. "And spear. This is the one that killed me," he explained softly. That part wasn't so humorous. Hecate had brought him back but Daniel was deceased for a long time. "Thank you for your help, Evelyn," he added sincerely. Without her, he'd still be the awkward geek that had no concept of his powers that lived inside a shell. That was the worst thing about Keith, otherwise, he wasn't a bad persona - but Daniel being Daniel again, he was beyond grateful and appreciative for that. How could words express it? He kissed her cheek. "You look beautiful by the way."

Daniel gestured to the refreshments. "Can I get the lady a drink? Theeen maybe steal a dance?" he suggested, quirking his brow up for her assessment. Slender Man liked to move about so he probably wouldn't pay attention to his redhead for a while.

Image Somewhere inside Mason was hoping for a rejection then he could report to Daniel he tried and failed. Iliana's consent was equally as pleasing and surprising though. He kept his moves small to avoid startling the girl, that and he wasn't big on dancing. At one stage he placed a hand on her waist and grabbed her hand to sway them about but beyond that, not much of a graze came of their dance. Mason gave Iliana a twirl or two. "Not so bad is it?" he asked her. Mason caught his booty call with Heath and Daniel. He smirked at her raising his brows and tilting his chin up.

Their dance wasn't long lasting which was for the best. Sylas whistled, managing to reach beyond the speakers. Mason shuffled closer to hear him speak. He proposed a game of 7 minutes in heaven - him or Sloane whoever, it made no difference. Mason hung onto the words waiting for the catch but it was a regular game of 7 minutes in heaven. He rolled it over in his head if it was worth joining then ultimately decided why the hell not. There was no better way to get to know your camp buddies than being locked in a closet with them. Mason poured himself a shot of vodka, downed it then picked up a beer along the way. He felt in his jacket pocket to grab a cigarette. He patted over another pocket then sighed, muttering out a curse. Mason forgot them. But he didn't really want to double back to his cabin until he saw who the poor soul that would be trapped in a closet with Eve was. At least her powers would make them feel lucky.

He didn't know if the willing participants were merging together or what as there wasn't that much movement, but he managed to bump into Alex. Hard. Rather than give her a look or words that said how badly he wanted her to drop dead, he remained stone-faced. "Open your eyes much? You gonna decapitate me too now?" He looked her over. "Got an object you can blame another curse on?"

Mason kept walking not caring for her reply and sat on one of the vacant logs. People could say what they wanted but there was a lack of accountability on the Gods and Alex's side so yeah, Mason was still pissed and if the bottle managed to land on her, he'd happily strangle her.

Image "Please don't start addressing me as 'your majesty.' and I don't know... you know I'm not much for gifts, but I am curious as to what you may have in mind.."

"Whatever your majesty prefers," Duke joked. Honestly, he couldn't see himself addressing Ajax in that formal of a manner even when he became superior in Olympian standards. They'd have to find a more comfortable title when the time came. And for now, Duke let the gift comment slide.

As the cook off began and Duke piled the cooked ones to the side, Ajax got his attention. "Now look at that." Duke looked up to his masterpiece of a burger and grinned. "I call it...." Duke waited in suspense for the perfect name for such a burger. "Well... I don't know what to call it, but I know I want to eat it."


Duke chuckled and nodded. "Probably the best choice."

Ajax bit into it and made noises like the cameras were rolling and he was advertising his burger, making Duke give him another amused glance. Duke even looked around, to the left and right and over his shoulders pointedly. "You done? I mean you've had a burger before right? Watch..." Everybody did it differently but Duke placed a burger on a bun, put the chilly sauce on the meat, showed Ajax a whole sliced piece of cheese then popped it on the burger, then sliced letters, tomato and some onion bits."Annnd" Duke popped one more hamburger on it, topped it with sauce then stepped back, compressing the burger. He was not a fussy eater but he was a man that worked up an appetite and loved his meat.

Duke left the cooking station, covering his mouth as bits of lettuce fell from his mouth. "I got a bit ambitious," he admitted. "But revisiting this gift...Do you want a shield? Warhammer?" Sure the boys knew each other but he didn't want to waste resources on something Ajax didn't use or admire at least. "That's why I'm kinda hoping you tell me the design details and we work from there. When you're ready."

Duke had another mouthful of food when an announcement of 7 minutes in heaven happened. He shook his head automatically. If people wanted to be intimate there were actual roomie cabins for that and better, it could be with a person you actually liked. The games and minds of his peers were unfathomable. Logic and the straight road sat right in front of them and they wanted to go over the river rapids. "You going to join? I mean technically you don't even have to do anything..." He didn't know why he was trying to nudge Ajax towards the game. Probably because he hadn't played a group game with campers in ages and it'd be a nice change. It'd distract him from his thoughts.

Liv did not bother to make much in the way of conversation with Eve. If Pete wasn’t going to play the game, and the little blonde minx wasn’t implanting suggestions, then there was no reason to stir the pot. She just offered her a thin sarcastic smile and looked over her outfit. The daughter of Poseidon really overdressed for this occasion. Though, she supposed it was just the girl’s attention seeking style. Not that it was wrong. It was cute attire and very much in the spirit of a bonfire at the beach.

“Yeah, if we don’t hurry up we’ll miss all the good songs,” Pete had said, and Liv didn’t reply because she felt he was more or less trying to urge them on before Eve embarrassed him more. Though, when he turned to smirk at her, she couldn’t help but cast her eyes to the ground and suppress what could have been a chuckle.

As they arrived at the party, she noted that he was all too eager to get his sister away from him. Pete taunted Eve with the thought that Mason was getting along with another woman. One that was not her. “Looks like lover boy found someone new.” After that, the vixen took off to bother other people, and thankfully so. Liv was tired of it already, and women like Eve were not her type of friend or acquaintance. She wasn't about to talk bad about his sister to his face, as that was a job for him alone. So, she let the topic of Eve flutter away like the woman herself.

“Drink?” He inquired, already headed for the booze just seconds after relief from his sister. She couldn't blame him and was partly glad that she didn't have a brother here. It meant that she could keep to herself and only venture out when necessary - training or, in this case, mandatory fun nights. If she had holed herself up in her cabin, someone would have probably come and dragged her out. There was nothing fun about mandatory fun nights, but maybe she'd catch a break from the nuances of trying to socialize with the camp's typically drama-mongers with Pete. "Don't mind if I do," she replied finally whilst snatching not one, but two from the cooler.

She strolled with Pete for a bit until they could find a spot that wasn't occupied by anyone, and she plopped her rear-end on the sand. She didn't care if he was opposed to it and sat on one of the logs, but she rather enjoyed the sand. Understandably, a lot of people did not. Liv had watched his gaze fall onto Alex, and her attention flitted from one demigod to the other. "I guess I should have dressed down for this party," she noted, mostly to herself, but he'd be able to hear it without a problem.

Her head cocked to the side, and she glanced back and over at him when he offered an apology without any actual context, “Sorry.” She assumed as she does often, that it had to do with Eve and the fact that she was a loquacious little thing that had spoken a little too much for both their comfort. Luckily for him, Liv was relatively easy-going in good company, and Pete is just about the sanest person around.

She offered him a small shrug, taking a long sip from her beer. "It's fine. I'm used to it by now. I think I am learning that the less I respond, the more people leave me alone. The more I can train, and the less they do while they are all wrapped up in their ridiculous bullshit." A sigh fell from her lips and she found herself looking over at the darkened beach and the moonlight that scattered over the catspaws of calm waters. "Have you ever been to the beach this late at night and actually get in the water? Not just drink and do dumb things like-" The announcement from Sylas came about, and she jerked a thumb toward him to wordlessly complete her sentence. "The gods are probably looking down at us trying to figure out why we would stuff two people in a closet when there are perfectly good cabins to make out in." She laughed at that.

She looked back at him to see if she could get a little something out, "Which gal would you go into a closet with?" She gestured to the various women with her beer hand while leaning back and bracing her torso against an arm.

"He's coming this way," she warned. The son of Ares knew that his night was not going to be easy. So, when Sylas caught his prey in those predatorial eyes, he wasn't surprised at all. Part of him understood that he'd be roped into playing these games, into being made to look like an Ares kid hellbent on beating up kids in floral blouses. Not that a kid wearing that shirt was undeserving of a beat down.

For a second there, the arm closest to Sloane instinctively reached out, as if it would have wrapped around her so that they could withdraw from this situation. It just so happened that it was at the same time she thought about grabbing it herself. But the snake had rapidly slithered over, and he didn't want the other campers to take note of the fact that she needed protecting.

"Sloane. Liam," the serpent practically hissed as he grabbed Liam's shoulder. At that second, the beastly man's jaw set noticeably - he could snap at any time now. All of the muscles in his head were tense; they even pulsed to the clenching of his teeth. It was his infamous tell that all the blood in his veins was beginning to run hot. His fingers curled into white-knuckled fists. He was gearing up for tearing Sloane's brother apart in front of everyone.

"How's the new roomie situation going?" He continued to taunt him like the obvious idiot he was. Yet beneath those words were something else, something that made the hair at the back of his neck bristle. It was unsettling. He rubbed that spot for a second, having long since forgotten that Sloane told him to tell her when he felt this. Right now, he wasn't remembering much of anything save for how much he is really wishing he would have killed this guy.

Sylas' attention withdrew from Liam and fixated upon his own sister, "You used your powers on him... didn't you? She's a smart one isn't she?... Makes me wonder what she sees in a big idiot like you?" Liam hadn't spoken at all. There was no reply - no retort, only a deathly stare pinned to Sylas. He was watching. Waiting. Any second now, and he'd have the perfect excuse to knock his head off of his little ass neck, and he didn't care if anyone saw it.

Just when he thought he was going to do it, Sloane stepped in between him. Her fingers pressed against his stomach, which was tense like every other muscle in his body. It was like he was all coiled up and poised to strike. "Don't. He's just trying to get under your skin. If you hit him first, you'll look like the bad guy."

He wanted to tell her that he was a bad guy. Liam was good in Sloane's eyes because that's the only part of him she had witnessed thus far. He peered down at her as she looked up at him, and there was not a kind expression on his face. Something about his posture, the glare of red in his eyes, and his silence was all in warning. Sloane had stepped between the son of Ares, of whom was approaching the apex of his patience for the guy just right behind her. All he needed to do was go through her, and if it weren't for the simple fact that he was in control of himself, he would. Had it been any other woman, he would have pushed her aside without a second thought. She tethered him to his own self-control, and he didn't even know it was actually happening. Without him even realizing it, he was gripping her fingers in his. Palms that tightened and tightened without any sign of letting up. However, when she likely began to feel discomfort, he released her slowly.

He seethed as the sibling pair continued to bicker, "I don't control him. I'm not you."

Still, Sylas continued on his way, knowing full well that the only thing that would hold Liam back, for today was Sloane. Deep down, he knew that was because they were in view of an audience, and he wasn't going to embarrass her. "How adorable. You asked his permission didn't you? She's obviously taking advantage of you big boy. You fought her battles, give up your home... even let her worm her way into your mind willingly. Is she that good in bed?"

Liam then drew from the well of all his comebacks, knowing full well what Sylas was looking for. With all the rumors that would circulate from her staying in his cabin, he really wasn't saying something that others weren't thinking. It would probably shut Sylas up. Liam looked him deadpan, visibly relaxed himself, and smirked, "She's great in bed, actually. It must be really hard to watch your sister get laid while you're still trying to woo that sweet little redhead over there. Look, she's with another guy. You really must have a small dick, dick." he even goes as far as looking over at Evelyn. "I wonder if you’ll have to beat her up to get her to sleep with you, since you’re such a fucking coward.”

Whatever Sylas said next went in one ear and out the other. He didn't care. Soon enough, they were headed toward the bonfire. The fact that he latched onto his sister and led her out ahead of him wasn't a real concern. The little fucking coward won't do shit, but it still irked the fuck out of him.

Neither Sloane nor Liam were going to play this game in front of everyone right now. As much as it bothered him to sit back and let Sylas command them, there was no other option. Sure, Liam was strong, but that didn't mean that other Demigods couldn't beat him. Given Sylas' tenacity for persuasion, he didn't want to risk it.

Sylas thought he was a dumb idiot, but Liam is a strategic man and this is slowly starting to become a battlefield. After the Trial, and with all of the drama coming - with Hades carted away - the hammer was going to fall eventually. When it does, he didn’t want himself and Sloane to be caught on the wrong side of things. He didn’t need the campers thinking that he was the bad guy in this story.

Everyone began to sit, and Liam did, too. Only it was not next to Sloane, it was across and slightly to the right of her. She knew he was close, and he knew that Sylas was a smart man, too.

“Please, Evelyn, would you satisfy the demon in me by charming that little bottle?” Close to being persuasive. Not quite there yet. He leaned towards her, his lips by her ear. “I'll make a fair trade for your services.” Sylas pulled back to hold her gaze instead. “I'll give you one question,” he said. “Any question and I'll answer it, honestly. No lies, omissions or ambiguity.”

Making such a deal was a little sweetener in the mix. She scanned his eyes for a trace of doubt, a trace he would try to pull the wool over her eyes but he remained calm and serious. For that, he got his precious reward and went about disrupting someone else's night. Meanwhile, Evelyn went to loopholes her or Sylas could find in their trade, or what her question should be. They'd have to have another talk clarifying the terms and conditions as any good deal was made.

It didn't seem long before she heard the same voice, loud and proud regarding a game of 7 minutes in heaven. She never played before but there were enough references floating around the world for her to get the concept. You spin the enchanted bottle and spend 7 minutes with the person you desire. Her peers were lucky today, to a degree. To another, unlucky. Sylas and her would only have to navigate the desire behind the bottle and dirty secrets were revealed.

As she approached the circle somebody slid their arms through hers. Keith invited her to take a walk and Evelyn let herself be led by him. He was happy and energetic but there was also a difference at the core. One could have such luck and simply change moods to ecstatic but this was something else. He stepped in front of her for display and after a moment's silence, he spoke. “Problem solved. Hi, I’m Daniel.” He held out his hand and Evelyn raised her brows, shaking his hand obligingly. There was a large amount of bizarreness to this circumstance but a slither of it made sense all the same.

“Hi, I’ve heard so much about you.”

“I'm the son of Hecate, most my injuries are self-inflicted. I have a debatably bad habit of playing with illusions and conjurations.” Daniel reacquainted himself with her. He started to pull on his top, revealing the corresponding events with the scars. “Wendigo conjuration, zombie, crossbow.” He smirked and Evelyn had to suppress the urge to roll her eyes. He was like a naughty kid that played with fire. Somewhere, she was relieved they were self-inflicted opposed to the alternative. “And spear.” He concluded. Evelyn's eyes drifted to the scar. She didn't need to see his back again to know it was the twin. “This is the one that killed me.” Evelyn met his eyes. He didn't say almost killed him, he said it killed him. She lowered her eyes unsure of how to respond. “Thank you for your help, Evelyn,” he said.

Feeling nothing but sincerity coming from him, she nodded. “Of course.” With the air cleared and heavy subject covered, Evelyn shifted her attention back towards the converging demigods. She thought it was about time to officially join the festivities.

Daniel kissed her cheek. “You look beautiful by the way.”

She was torn between a sigh and a smile. She must have had a kiss here sign. It was a kind gesture and he offered a compliment, she had no problem with that, but the pattern normally followed a request. “Thank you.”

“Can I get the lady a drink? Theeen maybe steal a dance?”

“That's kind of a hidden request,” she muttered to herself. Daniel only sprinkled it with a lot more suggestion and apparently thievery. Evelyn glanced anxiously to the gathering demigods. She didn't like to be unpunctual or the odd one out, even for the sake of a ridiculous game. A ridiculous game that hinted at some personal information. “Should we not join the others?” Evelyn looked back to Daniel.

Strange that she couldn't simply abandon him. Whether that was etiquette prompting her or something else, she wasn't sure. Perhaps because she had very recently met this new man and they were on a fresh slate. “One,” she enunciated, seemingly out of the blue. One drink. One dance,” she said holding up her index finger, emphasising to use his chance wisely.

She linked her arm through his and led them closer gradually. There was no rush to attend to the game herself but she would like to be in observing range, see whose bottle fell on who. “You're going to have to tell me why on earth you were compelled to conjure flesh hunting creatures. I cannot begin to understand....If your reason is ‘just for fun’ however, then please spare me.” This time she unhooked their arms standing in front of him. “I'd sooner hear more on the myth of the wendigo. I know very vaguely of them but one can never be too careful. It's a myth eat myth world. To some, we shouldn't even exist.” A single brow shot up followed by an amused smile.

“Hello, Trinity. Nice evening huh? I got in last night so that's why I am late. I am still learning the ropes here so if you have any recommendations, I'll gladly take them. Is this ya'll's first year here or have both of you been here before?”

Trinity opened her mouth to give her some recommendations alright but Andy quickly led them elsewhere. “Do you think maybe you're being a little hard on him?” Trinity huffed out. “He never questions you about your male friends. I doubt he has a dishonest bone in his body. He's arguably one of the nicest guys at camp. He's crazy about you... And he makes you happy.”

She tapped Andy’s shoulder as a playful scolding. “What the hell? Don't reverse psychology me, I asked you first and just be on my side.” Trinity sighed out shaking her head a little. This time it wasn't jealousy...well pure jealous anyway. All day she had been softening herself up, getting into a vulnerable state of mind and he comes with Alex clinging to his side. “Throw me a frickin bone,” she teased. She didn't come walking arm in arm looking bright as daisies with one of her male friends. And Alex was Alex, a very touchy-feely, flirty, beaming young woman. Trinity had half a mind to paint the picture better to Andy and Wes, acting like that with Mason before remembering their talk and Andy's conflicted feelings for him. Whether she was the jealous type or not, it wasn't a nice feeling. This wasn't about, Alex. It's about him and me.

“Don't be dumb like me and ruin a good thing.” Andy squeezed her arm. “I'm going to go take a shot... or like five. But you should go talk to him. 5 bucks says, he's already forgiven you.” Trinity glowered after Andy. Trinity wasn't done with her.

She crossed her arms then turned in time to meet eyes with Wes. “Trinity... You look gorgeous.” Be nice, she gave a mental note to herself. At the moment that meant looking between him and his hands full with his priorities. He set them on the table. “Can I get you a drink?”

The corner of her lips twitched up into a smile. She looked over to the drinks. “I’m more than capable of getting my own, thanks,” she said. Looking back to him, she caved and she smirked playfully. “Besides, I wouldn't want you to miss out on the rest of your burger.”

Then a male spoke up and suggested a game. 7 heaven. Yikes. “Did you want to join? I wouldn't kiss anyone... just stand there awkwardly for 7 minutes.” She looked up at Wes who had crept closer. “I mean, you can kiss whoever you want though... Or we could just walk around. Or I could leave you alone. I just want you to enjoy yourself... to be happy.”

“Well with your permission...” she broke off and chuckled. She should really stop tormenting the man. Trinity pat his chest, “I trust you.” She smiled up at him proudly. They both knew her statement wasn't as casual as she said, it was true and held all the depth in the world.

“I won't know what happens behind...the literal closed door, whether you kiss them or not Wes, but I know how you feel for me. That's something a kiss, a touch and the horizontal tango won't erase.” Looking at the closet Andy summoned, she quickly corrected herself. “Vertical tango, no - ” no that just became the tango, Trinity sighed out. “You get it. Besides I would never dream of denying the ladies a chance with the son of Aphrodite. You can just make up a safe word if they get too handsy and I'll come running.” She chuckled. Wes was likely used to fighting off some lust monsters.

When she saw Eve get the bottle, she shifted in front of Wes and reached back for him, pushing his hip gently to prompt him to scoot behind her. Obviously she couldn't make the guy disappear entirely with the size and frame difference but it was better to be argued about who it landed on than him be couple obvious inches to the side. Trinity tilted her head back at Wes. “Still trust you. Don't trust her,” she explained. “You look very spunky by the way,” she added.

Her strategy was to mosey on over and by then the blonde would have spun and not landed on Wes. Then she saw Liam sitting there, tense as ever, looking ready to rip into someone at the word, and she just wanted to scream. She couldn't block everyone. Quickly she decided to be a warning at least. She opened and closed her hand waiting for Wes to hold hers and Trinity plucked herself a drink and sat next to Liam. She left a decent gap because he was massive and didn't need somebody squished against him on a log, but by gods if any girls tried any funny business sliding between them... “Who do we want to kill or severely harm now?” she muttered leaning towards him. There was always somebody on the hitlist, for herself anyway.

For all she knew it could just be the social and gaming scene bringing out the worst in his mood. Trinity pat his back twice in the best 'there, there' gesture a daughter of Ares could give to her sibling. Although it wouldn't surprise her if he bit her head off in which case she'd happily respond with equal aggression. Liam and her still had a very rocky, test the waters relation. She felt an embedded loyalty and care for him but reading him or knowing how he'd respond to stuff...no.
