Amy, May

17

HOMETOWN:
Belfast, Northern Ireland

GODLY PARENT:
Hera

Female

White English

DOB:
2 January 2003

HEX CODE
#833f4d



ImageHEIGHT:
5'2”

WEIGHT:
121lb

APPEARANCE:
Amelia's style is one that is apparently always shifting. One day, she can be wearing an oversized army jacket, combat boots, and ripped jeans, her hair straightened and pulled into a ponytail, while the next, she can be in a midi skirt and crop top, her hair loose and curled around her face. She'll give almost any and every style a try at some point, and will probably end up combining them. Most of her clothes come from vintage and thrift stores, giving her a unique look. Despite being a rather reckless teenager, she managed to avoid scars for the most part, save for a jagged scar on her elbow from falling on glass and a small scar just above her left eyebrow from a car accident. She has no tattoos but does have both of her ears pierced twice. Day to day, she doesn’t wear all that much makeup, usually just sticking to tinted moisturiser, lip balm, and brow gel, but has been known to put in more effort just because she feels like looking a little nicer that day.

PERSONALITY

It doesn't take long for people to figure out that Amy's a daughter of Hera. In fact, it usually only o takes about as long as however long it takes them to piss her off, because once you do, she's not likely to forget about it. Amy's notoriously stubborn, and telling her she can't or shouldn't do something will probably only serve to drive her to do it. If she listens when she's told not to do something, it's a sign of respect on her part.

But these traits have their good aspects too. Namely, if you have Amy's back, you'll have to mess up to a monumental extent before she'll turn her back on you. She'll hold as many grudges as required, but she'll still be your friend. She's fiercely loyal to everyone she cares about. That loyalty extends to telling them, often in more detail than is needed, when and how they've messed up and how they need to fix it. Tough love is Amy's forte. But she does care about her friends and she is capable of showing affection in more traditional ways when required... she just prefers gently insulting them.

But Amy's tough shell is just that, a shell. She's deeply insecure. Some of it is external, people always comparing her to those around her, asking why she isn't better, being the youngest out of five step and half-siblings, but a lot of it is internal. She's incredibly ambitious and will do anything she can to earn her mother's pride. And showing weakness will only ever impede that. She refuses to let anybody take advantage of her, and if that sometimes means refusing genuine help, so be it.

BIOGRAPHY

Amelia’s father, John, actually met the love of his life seven years before he met Hera. John and Sadhbh were sweethearts in school. But John was afraid to settle down and commit, and so he broke up with Sadhbh before she knew she was pregnant. She couldn’t track him down to tell him, and so he didn’t find out he had a son until much later. He was on a business trip abroad when he met Hera. His ambition interested Hera, and she was like nothing he’d ever known. A baby showed up on John’s door a few months later, and John’s life changed.

With the help of his parents, he raised the little girl. Amelia was always headstrong from the moment she was able to adequately communicate with her caregivers. She always knew what she wanted and she would get it herself. She was always a little different in school, but always had a handful of friends. She saw her mom every year on her birthday, no matter what, but Amy didn’t hear or see much from her besides that. She missed having a woman in her life.

And then when she was eleven, John and Sadhbh bumped into each other again. Now, Sadhbh had four kids, including John’s son. It took him almost two years to make it up to Sadhbh, but they got married when Amy was thirteen. And Amy was delighted. Sadhbh could braid her hair, taught her how to look after her skin, and always patched her up when she got hurt playing with her older siblings. Amy had two older step sisters who brought her shopping and went swimming with her and painted her nails. But Sadhbh still felt she was missing something.

Hera showed up on Sadhbh’s sixteenth birthday with the present of a peacock feather ring and a revelation. Amelia discovered she was a demi-god, half Olympian, and that there was a boarding school for people like her. Amelia begged her parents to go, and of course they let her. She was so much happier there. But knowing her heritage now, she felt more of a pressure than ever to be truly great.

GRADE:
11th Grade


TEAM ROLE:
Brawn

RELATIONSHIP WITH GODLY PARENT:
Hera has never missed a single one of Amelia's birthdays, and she's never ignored her either. But Amelia's own ambition has left her feeling that she needs to do more to ensure she has her mother's favour, to ensure that Hera is proud of her.

HOBBIES:
Amy spends a lot of time training. Partially in an attempt to be the best she can be, but she also genuinely enjoys it as physical activity calms her mind. She enjoys most outdoor activities, but especially the ones with an element of danger, such as mountain biking and rock-climbing. She swims as much as she can.

AMBITIONS:
When asked, Amy will simply reply that she just wanted the glory and power associated with the tourney and with winning it. But in reality, she wants to impress her mother and prove she's a worthy daughter.

FEARS:
She's afraid of amounting to nothing, of being a nobody in some nowhere town. She doesn't like to appear afraid of anything, but enclosed, small spaces make her incredibly nervous and it takes everything in her to hold her composure.

STRENGTHS
Due to constant training, Amy is good with a range of weapons. Her preferred weapon is a longsword, but she can also handle herself with a bow and arrow or a dagger. She's in good physical condition, with a good level of stamina and speed. When it comes to picking up a new skill, she'll stick with it until it until she's satisfied with her prowess in it.

WEAKNESSES
Her fatal flaw is her pride. She won't ask for help unless she really needs it, and sometimes, only when it's too late. She's mildly dyslexic and struggles with picking up new languages or having to read long passages. She's not the most eloquent, and is a dreadful public speaker when put in a formal situation. She's stubborn and doesn't like to back down unless she really, really has to.




Image
Image
REPUTATION:
Amy's reputation is mostly neutral. Don't cross her and you'll probably be fine, and she's a good person to ask if you want someone to demonstrate a certain technique in training. But she isn't exactly beloved by all either.

FAMILY:
Her family is a little unorthodox. There's her, her half brother, Neil, and her three step-siblings. She's closest with Neil, despite there being the largest age gap of 7 years, but she's on good terms with her whole family. She adores her step-mother.


MISCELLANEOUS:

The tiny sensible part of Amy’s brain said that maybe getting drunk the night before what was probably going to be the biggest few days of her life wasn’t exactly the best idea. But the burn of the vodka burnt away the anxiety she’d been feeling before she’d started drinking. God, was she crazy? She had to be crazy to get herself into this. She was good with a sword and she was strong and fast, but she wasn’t exceptional at any of them. Elliot had told them all they were ready, but he wasn’t going to tell them otherwise the day before the Agon. Maybe she should have waited another year.

Or maybe she just needed another drink. Yeah, she probably just needed another drink. Everyone around her seemed to be way drunker than she was. She was pretty sure she’d just seen someone streaking, which she desperately hoped was as the result of way, way too much alcohol. But some of the Dionysus kids were just that weird, so she didn't want to make assumptions as such. She was at least glad she hadn't overdone it with her outfit. She'd missed out on the neon paint but had made up for it with the sheer amount of highlighter she'd dusted over her face and legs.

As she reached the nearest bar, the selection of shots was almost overwhelming. There was a moment where she contemplated going and finding something a little more manageable, or maybe waiting until Reagan finally decided to show so they could at least make dumb decisions together. But another figure at the end of the bar caught Amy’s attention. She reached for the nearest shot and downed it, then downed another one practically without catching her breath. And then she grabbed some brightly colored neon drink and made her way down to Theo. She could feel the alcohol hitting already and she grinned.

“Hey, Teddy,” she called as she reached him, leaning on the bar beside him. “Good party, huh?”

Back in Camden, Min hadn’t gone to many, if any, parties, and none of them were like this. The closest thing he’d experienced to a party was him and the two people he’d called friends playing some games together, all of them deciding they were going to rebellious and try a beer, and immediately deciding that they hated it. He’d never experienced anything like this, with the array of unnaturally coloured drinks and pulsing music and strobing lights. When he’d first arrived, things had felt so incredibly overwhelming that he’d considered turning around and just going home. But he’d been convinced to stay, and it had led to his current scenario.

He had lost Percy, for a start. Had he wandered off in search of a drink or had it been Min that had gotten lost? He wasn’t quite sure. And that was the second issue. For the first time in his life, Min was drunk. Considering he’d never drank more than a glass of champagne at a fancy event, he probably should have taken it a little easier than he had. But in his defense, he was about to enter an event where he could very well die or lose any of the handful of people he really cared about. God knows, he’d needed a distraction from that.

And, well, he hadn’t realised quite how strong the jello shots were.

He was, at least, aware enough to know that he needed to sit down. He was not, however, aware enough to know that he probably needed to drink something that didn’t contain copious amounts of spirits, and so had a glass of rum and coke in his hand. He told himself that it was, at least, better than shots.

It had been ten years since Elliot’s Agon, and the parties appeared to have only gotten bigger and bolder since then. His party had seemed wild at the time, but it was nothing compared to the rave that seemed to be going on across the lake. They deserved every minute of it, though. Everyone seemed to have been putting in that little bit more of an effort in his class over the past few weeks, eager to make themselves the best they could be in time for the Agon, and his team had been training like crazy over the past few weeks. Some of them had even been prepared to train tonight, but he’d told them to take the night off and just let themselves be dumb teenagers for a while.

That didn’t mean Elliot had been sitting around idly though. He had planned on taking the night off, maybe hitting up some of the bars. But instead, he’d spent the past few hours working with Reagan, making sure she was confident. She was more than capable, but he was mostly concerned about whether or not her emotions would get the better of her. So if some last minute training would help her feel more confident, he sure as hell wasn’t going to turn it down.

He raised an eyebrow as he caught sight of the light show going on at the party, laughing a little. “You know, back in my day, we at least tried to be subtle about this,” he teased lightly. “But I’ll pretend I know nothing about it.” He was pretty sure they were all much more sophisticated now. At his Pre-Agon Bash, at least one kid had drunk an entire bottle of wine and had to be carried home by a team of Zeus’ kids.

“I should probably leave you here, if I get any closer it’ll be harder to claim I had absolutely zero knowledge about this if anyone asks.” He pulled Reagan in for a quick hug. “Go on, go enjoy yourself. Do dumb teenager things. You’ll absolutely kill it tomorrow, don’t worry about it.”

Lux had zero intentions of going to the party. Instead she sat in her room, sitting Indian style on her desk chair as she poured through survival guides, trying to cram any useful last minute information in before the Agon. She had read the books dozens of times, sharpened and resharpened her blades, checked her bow, memorized every bit of Greek lore. Yet, she still felt unprepared. Like no matter how much she studied, memorized or trained, it wasn't going to be enough. So rather than get drunk the night before the Agon and risk a hangover, she stayed in. Plus, part of her, that wouldn't admit it, was trying to avoid certain situations... and people.

Then there as a knock on the door in the melody of some song. Yankee doodle? She didn't try to guess. Instead, Lux ignored it, hoping whomever it was would just leave. But the knocks just kept going and going for the better part of a minute. "Fine. Fine!" She stood up with a groan, kicking her chair out of the way.

When she opened the front door, she found Percy standing there, waiting impatiently. "You can't hide out in here all night."

"You know it's frowned upon in most societies to murder teletubbies," Lux replied as she pinched some of the faux fur of his jacket between her fingers. "What in the hell are you wearing?"

"What?" Percy asked, before giving a flourished twirl. "It's a rave."

"Right... Not a triple X sesame street audition."

Percy rolled his eyes, before he walked past Lux and into her room, beelining for her wardrobe. "Well, you're going. Even if I have to drag you there myself." He opened the doors and began sifting through her clothing. "Don't you have anything of color... or feminine?"

"No," Lux said plainly as she closed the door and returned to her desk.

"Well, luckily for you, I didn't come empty handed." Percy took a piece of clothing from under his ridiculous jacket and tossed it onto the table in front of her.

Lux's face twisted in disgust as she picked up one of the items between her thumb and index finger. "What the hell is this?"

"A skirt," he replied from halfway inside her wardrobe. "Oh, and fishnets."

"No. No!" She snatched up the offered clothes and shoved them into Percy's hand.

He refused to take them and pushed them back toward her. "You can't go in all black."

"Sure I can. Or... I can not go."

"I'm not taking no for an answer. This could be our last party," he said as he took her by her shoulders. "People die in the Agon, Lux."

"Ok, now you're being dramatic."

"You've heard the stories. You know there is a higher chance of us dying than winning. So, can you please, for one night, be a normal person and have fun." He softly shook her shoulders hoping it would shake some sense into her. Lux sighed but said nothing. It wasn't much, but it was enough for Percy to know he had already won. "Plus, it's the one night you can look like a lady before you kill everyone tomorrow." He grinned.

Lux laughed, rolling her eyes. "Fine!" She surrendered, snatching the clothes back from him. A groan escaped her lips as she looked them over. It was more color and less clothes than she had ever wore.

While she was distracted, Percy tossed a shirt into her arms. "Wear that."

"Wait what? This is an under shirt... You'll see my bra."

"That's the point... The other girls will be in less. And how else is a brooding individual supposed to notice you unless you show off a little of the goods." Percy pursed his lips while shimming his shoulders in a teasing manner.

"Shut up." Lux took the shirt for him and went into the bathroom, closing the door behind her. "But I'm wearing my combat boots," she called after him.

* * *

They were almost there. The entire walk Lux kept adjusting the skirt, or crossing and then uncrossing her arms. "I feel... exposed," she grumbled looking down at her transparent top. Somehow she managed to leave her room with her combat boots and a beanie. A small victory, but she'd take it. If Percy had any say in the matter, she'd be wearing some ridiculous Lady Gaga type shoes that she could barely walk in. But the prospect of the party had him far too excited to fret over the details.

"After you, Elton John." Lux motioned her hand toward the entrance for him to go first. She agreed to the clothes, but there was no way in hell that she was walking in first. Maybe she'd be lucky enough and Percy would get distracted and she could make a run for it.

Percy walked through the door and instantly lit up like a neon Christmas tree. Even his pale ass chest was almost florescent in the light show. He looked ridiculous, and while less than half of the people there even dressed for a rave, he couldn't be bothered. This was the first party he's ever been to and he was living for it. "Min!" he shouted above the music when he saw his friend halfway across the room, no doubt gaining half of the attendant's attention.

Lux slunk in behind him, hoping that she was partly hidden behind her furry friend. But unfortunately, he stuck out like a sore thumb rather than blending in. She patted him on the shoulder to get his attention. "I'm getting a drink... Don't get too drunk. Your brain will be important tomorrow."

Percy returned to find Min already drunk with several empty jello shots around him. "Sorry, I had to get a party pooper out of—How many of these have you had?" He flicked away a couple of the empty plastic shots. "Well, since you're drunk and all..." He removed his ridiculous colorful sunglasses, then put them on his friend. He also quickly snagged a glowstick from a drunk blonde who wouldn't notice it's absence and put it around Min's forehead with his bandana.

"There," Percy concluded, while messing up Min's hair a little. "Now I'll be able to find you if you wonder off. And next party, I'm dressing you." He flashed his friend a playful wink.

Then his attention shifted back to the bartender as he slapped his hand on the counter. "Bartender! Your most ridiculously fruity and colorful alcoholic nonsense, please!"

On the other hand, Lux quickly slipped into the crowd hoping to disappear. She wiggled her way through people and made her way to the bar. But unlike everyone else around her, she simply grabbed a bottle of water, wanting to keep her mind as clear for the next day as possible.

As she went to leave, her gaze drifted down the bar until it met Wes who was lost in a sea of women. Lux didn't let her eyes linger there long before she quickly looked away and turned from the bar. She had no desire to hang around the numerous of already drunk teenagers who were trying to get one last lay in before the Agon. Instead she headed over to the lounge area and found a large plush chair that could easily fit two or three people.

With a sigh, she sat down on the chair and propped her feet up on the coffee able in front of her. Lux made a mental note to stay as long as her water lasted, then sneak out before anyone noticed her.

The party was already bustling and it was barely dusk. Sebastian had no idea whose idea it was to make the theme a rave, and to be honest, he hadn't decided if he wanted to thank them. While the lights flashed so much it could make anyone epileptic, but on the other hand some daring women, not much but enough, decided to embrace the race culture by wearing clothes that barely passed for clothing. Neon or holographic lingerie, sequins and the occasion nipple pasty. What wasn't there to like? He didn't quite embrace it like some of the others but he made sure his outfit had enough color to pop just enough under the black lights.

Sebastian lost track of how many women in the surrounding hoard were there for him or Wes. Most likely him. After all, he was the most attractive guy at the Academy, if he did say so himself. He did have the benefit of his parentage working in his favor. Anyone born to Aphrodite was gifted with ungodly attractiveness and charm. And while he was the most desirable, that wasn't to discredit his best friend. The man had a reputation that nearly rivaled his own... nearly. He was certain some of the girls were there for him as well. He's known his fair share of women to appreciate the tall, dark and brooding type.

He made all the right moves. Smiling at the girl just when he could sense she desired it more. Giving another a sly wink before he took a sip of his whiskey. Then waiting until the opportune moment, to lean in and whisper in the naive blonde's ear. He didn't have to be a child of Goddess of Love to know his methods were effective. Sly words from a silver tongue with enough velvet seduction to make her shift where she stood, clenching her thighs. Hook. Line. Sinker.

Seb spared glances in Wes' direction every so often. His friend was usually up there with himself trying to catch what prey he could. But something deep down wasn't the same. It hadn't been for awhile. It was something only Seb noticed, not these air-headed women that created a barricade around them. The man didn't give himself away, it was his emotions. He might have been flirting, and making the moves but his heart wasn't in it.

Almost like a trigger deep in the pit of his stomach, something in Seb told him to look toward the entrance. It was a sensation all too similar to the one he felt coming from Wes. His gaze drifted in that direction only to find another blonde joining the party. Not one he intended on seducing but grew nauseous at the sight of. Someone nearly as repulsive as Abby... Lux. He was surprised she showed up at all, especially looking like... a female.

Seb's right arm was hooked around the waist of the, all too ready, blonde, his left arm snaking its way around the shoulders of a striking brunette to his left. "Doesn't my dear friend look absolutely dashing this evening?" he asked, pointing his hand that held his drink and ran across the girl's shoulder at Wes. "And you think he looks good now... Without a shirt." He whistled. "I'd even fuck him." Seb's tactic might have been a little obvious, but anything to keep his friend's attention focused on the fruits ripe for the picking instead of a rotting one that just joined the party.

Leave it to Reagan to be training up to the last minute before the Agon. She was nervous. Beyond nervous. Sure, she had many of other things mastered, but her emotions weren't one. And without those within her control, she could be more dangerous to her team than the trials. She also worried about using water breathing for herself or her teammates.

Luckily for her, Elliot was always willing to help her whenever she needed it. And if she didn't know better, he seemed just as nervous about the next day as she was. In the midst of all the training, she almost completely forgot about the party until he mentioned the time. Thankfully, she was smart enough to prepare her outfit in her locker off the Academy's pool. She was almost mad at herself for being so predictable.

He offered to walk her to the party, so Reagan hurried off to change into the most bright and obnoxious clothing she owned. After all, it was a rave, not that she had ever been to one. But if there were black lights, she'd at least look a little in character. Of course, her hair still hand remnants of pool water and her face was dressed up in a sad excuse of makeup that she could manage in a couple minutes.

"You know, back in my day, we at least tried to be subtle about this." Elliot laughed at the sight of the bright lights in the night's sky. "But I’ll pretend I know nothing about it."

Reagan laughed as she walked in pace with him, while adjusting her attire. "In your day? What? The stone age?" She jested. Although it wasn't like he was much older than her. Ten years is a big gap, but as a whole it isn't much at all. People got married with larger age gaps. And in her eyes, Elliot was more of a friend than an adult figure. "Let me guess, your party was all punk rock and emo," she added while ruffling his red hair.

"I should probably leave you here, if I get any closer it’ll be harder to claim I had absolutely zero knowledge about this if anyone asks."

Her gaze drifted off to the party as she exhaled deeply. This was it. Her last night before the Agon. Just the thought of it made her hands tremble as she contemplated retreating back to her room. But before she could do either, Elliot embraced her in a quick hug. "Go on, go enjoy yourself. Do dumb teenager things. You’ll absolutely kill it tomorrow, don’t worry about it." She gave her best confident nod before hurrying off in the direction of the party.

By the time Reagan walked through the entrance, the night's events were in full swing. Half naked teenagers made fools of themselves as they drank themselves into a stupor. Although she wasn't the only one to dress for the theme, she was one of the more modest ones, although she looked light a highlighter in the black lights. It took a couple of minutes for her eyes to adjust to the flashing lights and for the loud music not make her brain feel like it was rattling in her skull.

She made her way over to the bar and surveyed the available drinks. Reagan had never drank, well... anything. The thought of alcohol already churned her stomach, but perhaps a little liquid courage was necessary to handle the next day. She grabbed the brightest neon drink she could find that seemed to matched her and took a sip. As she coughed at the surprising sharpness of it, she noticed Amy at the other end talking with Theo. For a moment, she contemplated joining them, but decided not to be a gate crasher.

Instead, Reagan left the bar with drink in hand. Like a beacon in her neon outfit, she sifted through the crowd scouring for Ali.

Child of Hades // Special // Attire // Location: Legacy Academy // #575772

Theodore stood there by himself as he enjoyed the beat of the music overhead and the alcohol in hand after he had it refilled once again as Erin walked off to go do whatever it was that she was going to do. The amount of alcohol he already had in such a short amount of time was clearly having an affect on him and his attention and memory was slowly starting to black in and out as time went on. All his mind kept focusing on was what was going to happen tomorrow, maybe their lives would change after all of this, and they’d lose people they cared about, or maybe they’d even die in the process. The fact that people died in the Agon actually terrified him, partially why Theo even really questioned himself after he said he’d join. Sure, his team did have some good students in it, and he trusted them all with his life, but part of him felt like maybe joining this year was a bad choice.

His attention was snapped back to reality when he heard a familiar voice call over to him. Looking up, a large smile overtook his lips as he saw that it was Amelia May, or simply Amy, he couldn’t help but feel a little at ease. His shoulders relaxed a bit as he leaned against the bar, looking at her with a large smile. “Well well, if it isn’t Amy. Glad you could finally make it to the party.” Theo joked as he took another sip of his drink. Theodore bit the inside of his cheek as he thought for a moment, before resting one of his arms on Amy’s shoulder, “So, are you just as nervous about the Agon as me, or is it just Theo being Theo and is being over dramatic as always sort of thing? Cuz it could honestly be both.” he said with a small chuckle, bringing her in for a small hug for a moment, maybe Theo did have just a bit too much alcohol. “Ya know, before everything hits the fan and our lives are torn a sunder, how about we go try to hunt down one of the usual hermits and see if she actually showed up, hm? I haven’t seen your favorite dumbass here yet, so I’m assuming Riles’ stood us up again?

Daughter of Dionysus // Support // Attire // Location: Legacy Academy // #8c066d

Erin began making her way back to the dancefloor, drinks in hand as she looked around for Tarra in the crowd, who seemed to disappear out of eyesight. Arching an eyebrow, she tried looking for a familiar face to see if anyone knew where she went. Finally seeing one she sighed and walked over, not exactly wanting to talk to him but he was her best bet to know where she went. “Hey asshole, you see Tarra in the last, four minutes? I went to get her a drink and she’s gone now.” Erin asked quizzically. Logan simply shrug his shoulders as he looked at her, “She’s your girlfriend, is she not? Thought it was your responsibility to keep her in check. But last time I saw her, she was talking to Chadwhick and the two walked off. That’s all I know. Now fuck off.” he snarled as he turned back around to dance with the girl he had been speaking to. Erin rolled her eyes at the comment, latching her hand back onto Logan’s arm as she turned him back to face her, “Well, that’s for letting me know, but second, you can learn a few fucking manners. At this rate you’ll never get laid, bud.” Erin quickly retorted with a pat on his back and walked off before Logan could really do anything, not like that comment would bruise his ego too much.

Erin sighed as she walked through the crowd, still with two drinks and she wasn’t about to waste one, nor was she just going to give it to just anyone. She’d try to find someone, even anyone at this rate to occupy her time with. Not that she had much to do besides go back to the dj station, which she was beginning to reconsider as she really wasn’t in the mood for it anymore, even she had promised to come back after her break. They could handle the music for a bit longer. Besides, it was a party and she hadn’t even been able to enjoy it yet for herself. Which, she would change starting now, especially as she saw a few familiar faces in the crowd.

A few feet away, Erin could see the two familiar faces of two Hermes children, and she was at least friends with one of them, so she could handle her brother. Even if he was an ass, she had asshole friends herself. So she figured she could deal with him for a short few minutes. Erin sauntered over, pushing one of the drinks into Ann’s hand as a greeting, “Hey boo, sorry I wasn’t around earlier. By the looks of it I missed some good bets?” Erin mused, knowing full well how the daughter of Hermes worked at parties. They did start up that whole underground gambling ring around Olympia. Erin wrapped one of her arms around Ann’s shoulders as she greeted one of the few people she could actually tolerate in this god damn place. “So, what kind of chaos are we going to start up tonight before the rest of our lives is entirely fucked over by the Agon? Eh? Any ideas, cuz I have a few, and most involve alcohol and good vibes.” Erin said with a raised eyebrow as she looked at both of the Hermes kids, seeing how either one of them would be able to come up with something for them to bring some real fun to the party.

Theo's bright smile made Amy's own smile widen a little, starting to feel the alcohol numbing her senses and her worries. Maybe she could just relax and enjoy the party now, just have a good time and... forget about tomorrow. Forget about the fact that she was the only brawn member on the team and that every winning, hell, pretty much every surviving team in previous years had at least two. She took a long sip of her drink.

She laughed as Theo rested an arm on her shoulder, although her smile slipped a little as he mentioned the Agon. "It's definitely not just you, dude, I think everyone here is kind of freaking out. That's... at least a third of the reason why everyone here is so drunk," she said. She grinned as he pulled her in for a hug and held on tightly for the second. She raised an eyebrow as he mentioned going to find Riley, shrugging a little. "I... haven't seen her yet so it's very possible she's not here. Buuuut we'll give her the benefit of the doubt. Let's go see if we can't find her. And you'll just have to bring me for a dance if we can't find her," she said with a shrug. She laced her hand through his. "Just so I don't lose you," she said, before downing the rest of her drink and pulling him away from the bar.

She was beginning to think that Riley had either just not shown up or else had already gone home, and was about to say something to Theo, when she spotted Riley a short way away. She let go of Theo's hand and ran over to her, ambushing her in a hug. "Riley!! I thought you'd gone home and abandoned me," she said enthusiastically. "You look awesome!"

Child of Hades // Special // Attire // Location: Legacy Academy // #575772

Theo's smile slightly lessened for a moment when he saw that his comment about the Agon hit a bit of a nerve with Amy, "Oh shit, I didn't mean it like that...I don't know why I said it, really. I'm sorry. I guess I'm just...nervous." he stuttered, with an awkward chuckle as he rubbed the back of his neck. He looked back up when Amy confirmed that she hadn't seen Riley either, which wasn't much of a shock considering she wasn't exactly the uh, most socialable person he had met. Which, was fine just, made keeping track of her rather difficault sometimes. He grinned at the last bit of having to owe Amy a dance if they couldn't find their lost friend, "Deal!" he said a bit too excitedly, "Uhm, I mean cool. Cool. I think I can manage that." he stuttered, Nice save, dumbass, he thought to himself. Real smooth save there too. Theodore shook his head, immediately feeling dumb.

He gave a small smile as Amy laced her hand with his, saying so she didn't lose him in the crowd of people. Tightening his own hold on her a bit as they weaved through the crowd of drunken, hormonally charged teenagers that danced to the beat of the music. With his rather tall build, he had a bit of an advantage of trying to find their lost friend in the crowds of people, trying to spot someone off by herself or trying to strike up a conversation with someone she knew. Almost walking into Amy at one point as he got a little distracted before she took off running, letting go of his hand. "Yeah there...There she is..!" he weakly called out, putting his hand down as he didn't really to need to confirm that he saw Riley as Amy had ambushed her in a hug.

---

Riley had been enjoying the music as she attempted to find someone at least, that was until a person out of nowhere tackled her from the crowd. Almost entirely throwing her off her feet. "Holy shit, Amy! You scared me!" the daughter of Artemis called out as she was practically tackled by the small red haired daughter of Hera. "And hey now, I was trying to find you! So, I have no idea what you're talking about, dumbass." she retorted, happily wrapping Amy in a hug. "Theo!! It's great to see you!" she called out as she saw him making his way over to them.

"Hey Riles. Always good to see you." he said with a smile, giving her a side hug. Riley returned the hug with a smile, "Likewise! And Amy, you're one to talk about looking good. You always look amazing, so I don't want to hear it." she said with a small chuckle. "So, what're you guys up to? I'm currently trying to...Not have a nervous breakdown about tomorrow. But, putting that aside, I'm trying to enjoy myself."

"Well, Amy here wanted to track down her favorite dumbass and made sure she even came to this party. But, me...I'm not up to much. And I'm sure you'll be fine, Riley. You got a good team to watch out for you." he said with a smile.

Daughter of Dionysus // Support // Attire // Location: Legacy Academy // #8c066d

Erin gave Ann a small smile as the daughter of Hermes said she had missed Erin. "I mean hey, I'm not a very easy person to miss." she retorted, flashing her friend a toothy grin. Giving Ann a side eye as her shoulder was poke, "I will have you know, I was very busy with what I was doing. I was DJ'ing this party for a while, but then I needed a break and got a few drinks....And then Tarra kinda dissapeared. So, I'm not pestering you, dear friend." she said with a grin. Wrapping her arm around her friend in a quick hug as she placed a kiss on the other girl's head for a moment before eyeing her handing what looked to be like pills to Asher.

She raised an eyebrow in slight confusion as she watched Ann down a pill of her own, and watched as she stiffened for a moment before her pupils dialated and seemed to be in an odd daze like state of mind. Clearly a drug induced trip. Erin gently kept her hand on Ann, helping keep her stable until she came back down from the most intense moment of the high, giving a small chuckle as Ann began talking again. Saying how it wasn't such a big deal, but she needed to try the pills she had.

The daughter of Dionysus took a slight step back for a moment as uncerainty began to fill her, "I dunno, Ann. I'm not exactly into uh...Taking pills." she said with a small raise of her hands for a moment. Erin may have been into getting intense highs and trying out different drugs and experimenting with what she could handle. But pills? Wasn't exactly anything she ever considered, and she was tempted to turn it down. But, after a moment of reconsidering, especially if this was going to be one of the last few days where she could just say 'Fuck it' and throw caution to the wind? Why not. "Ah fuck it, gimme some of the good shit." she said with a sly grin, and took the ones Ann handed over.

"To eternal youth, or may we all be damned. If things go south, I'll see ya'll in Hades when this is all over." she retorted with a grin, and quickly downed the pills dry. The taste that hit her tongue for the briefest moment, was an odd mixture of sour and...purple? If one could even taste a color, it's what she assumed it would be. After a few seconds, the affects of the drugs kicked in and what flashed before her mind was flashes of images from her past, some things she didn't remember and then a quick flash of a sword and someone else's hand holding her's. Whatever the fuck that meant, she didn't care. The visions were soon over as she found herself gasping for air, falling back slightly, but just able to catch herself from falling over as she grabbed onto someone's shoulder.

"Holy fucking shit, what the absolute fuckballs was that??" she exclaimed, a large grin spreading over her lips as she stepped back over to Ann, wrapping an arm around her. "Those are some tricky ass pills you have, I've never experienced anything like that before." Erin chuckled, almost losing her balance for a moment until she was able to stabalize herself again. "What else do you guys want to do while we say fuck it? Tomorrow our lives could be over, so why not do something we never thought we'd do? I might even go fight god while I'm at it. What else can i fucking lose?"

Amy laughed at Riley’s reaction to her arrival, raising an eyebrow as Riley said she had been trying to find Amy. “Mmhmm, I’m sure you weren’t just trying to sneak out without any of us noticing,” She said, elbowing Riley in the ribs gently. She grinned and twirled a little as Riley told her she looked good.

“Oh don’t be silly, you were helping me look for her. And you’re stuck with us now, if you think I’m letting you go brood in some corner somewhere now, you’re wrong,” she teased. She raised her eyebrows at the mention of Riley’s team. “Sure, her team is good, but it’s not great. Everyone knows a daughter of Hera is the vital ingredient in a winning team.”

“Come on, if we’re going to be risking our lives tomorrow, we may as well go have some fun, right? Or do I need to get some more alcohol into you two?” Truth be told, she knew that they all needed the distraction. They needed to be doing something dumb, they needed to be having fun, because who the hell knew what awaited them tomorrow? Who knew that they were about to walk into?

Everything felt like a blur- but in the best way possible. They were just fooling around, being the dumb kids they were supposed to be, just having fun because they could. Everywhere, the bright colours seemed to bleed into one another in a hypnotising, entrancing way, giving everything a slightly surreal feeling. For once, Min didn’t care how people perceived him or what he looked like. He just wanted to have fun with his friends. At some point, Percy draped his colourful coat around Min. Min knew now that he had to look ridiculous in Percy’s borrowed clothes, and he loved it.

Cadence seemed to suddenly stop dancing. She had her usual cheery tone back on by the time Min turned to look at her, but even he could tell something was up. But perhaps that was understandable, given what awaited them tomorrow. He really couldn’t blame anyone for feeling a little off or distracted.

Percy drew Min’s attention back to him, teasingly shaking his butt at Min and getting a laugh in return. Almost as if he’d been able to read Min’s thoughts, he referenced the fact that this was the end of a chapter, and that they should fulfill something from his bucket list. As Percy grasped his shoulders and spoke in his ear from behind, Min could feel his thoughts wandering somewhere they never would have done sober. Percy came back around to stand in front of him and fixed the collar of the coat, and joked about not being able to organise skydiving or a lottery win. Min laughed, but there was something about Percy being that close, close enough to be able to see the shine of sweat on his skin, that transfixed him. Given what they were facing into tomorrow and what lay ahead of them, Min knew that this could well be his last chance to say something, to do something. But that fear of ruining things between them was always running under the surface, numbed by the alcohol but still present.
“Well, given you’ve just ruled out the first two items on my bucket list… I just want to do something really, really dumb. Like something stupidly ridiculous, like… something that will make us shake our heads when we’re older and wiser. And I want to do it with my best friend.”

Music played overhead as two bodies danced all-too closely on the dance-floor. Hormones, alcohol and the idea of their lives possibly coming to an end in the ensuing few days were a messy cocktail for anyone. Nevermind for a child of Apollo and a daughter of Aphrodite. The vibrations from the music could be felt through their very veins as they danced together. The child of Apollo felt a sudden sensation placed against their lips, which caused them to take a step back. Blinking in slight confusion for a moment. "What's wrong, Cas? Afraid of a little...temptation?" the blonde haired daughter of Aphrodite grinned, leaning in for another kiss, which Cas pulled away from, turning their head to the side. Feeling lips press against their flesh before feeling the kisses begin to trail down to their neck, which caused Cas to push the woman away. "What? No...No. Just..." Cas looked down and sighed, combing their fingers through their hair nervously as they fidgeted for a moment, trying to find the words to what they wanted to say. "Look, I like you a lot but...With the Agon...I don't want to...If anything were to happen, I wouldn't want to hurt you. Ya know? I just-" a scoff came from the other woman as she took a step back, seperating the two even more than they were moments prior.

"Oh please. As if it'd be anything more than a one night thing anyway. You're cute and real sweet, Cas. You really are. But there's nothing to go from here, with us. Things have been fun but, it'd be nothing more than a hookup. I'm sorry but, it's just not...That, with you. If that makes any sense." she gave a forced smile and nod of her head. Cas took a deep breath to keep theirself calm and collected. Nodding as they bit their bottom lip, internally cursing theirself for thinking anything was going to come from this. How stupid would they have to be, to think anything would ever come from anything. Well, anything good anyway. It was so stupid and foolish of them to have though otherwise. Cas nodded once more, digging their hands into their pants' pockets, "I..I get it, Nicole. You're just, not interested in me like that. I...I get it. It was stupid of me to have thought otherwise. I'm sorry for wasting your time as much as I have." they gave another nod, and a bitterly forced smile in the woman's direction. Nicole sighed and reached out for Cas, grabbing them by the bicep, "Look, I didn't mean anything like that. Can we just, pickup where we left off and-" Cas scoffed, pulling their arm away. "So, you just wanna hookup cuz you can, and then just move on and pretend like nothing happened? Yeah no...I...I don't swing that way." the child of Apollo said, backing away slightly.

The daughter of Aphrodite smirked and clicked her tongue as she eyed Cas up and down for a moment, "Well, that's what the rumors say about you anyway." the blonde crossed her arms for a moment. Cas bit back a forced laugh, doing their best to keep the hurt and pain from seeping out fully. Cas combed their fingers through their hair once more as they shook their head, "Fuck those rumors. Whoever started that shit can fuck off for all I care. Think what you want about me, but whatever you may have thought before? Just...Just fucking forget it. Have a good night, Nicole..." Cas shook their head once more as they stepped away and turned on their heel, headed towards the bar for a few more drinks. Maybe a few could help bury the slowly growing emotions they could feel boiling within them. They already felt nervous and scared about the Agon the next day, and wanted to come to this party to just forget about it for a little while. Enjoy their time and forget about life, or well, the possible prospect of dying in the Agon anyway. But, here they were, immediately regretting everything about this whole night. Maybe having stayed in the dorm would have been better after all..?

Riley forced a smile when Amy called her out for trying to escape the party, as much as she wanted to deny it, Amy had a point. This wasn't exactly her seen by any means, and being called out on it didn't exactly make the daughter of Artemis feel any better. Giving her friend a small smirk as she was nudged in the ribs playfully, before her attention got taken by Theo who commented on Amy trying to hunt Riley down. She rolled her eyes at his comment before chuckling at Amy's retort, before her eyebrows furrowed as she rolled her eyes. "Oh c'mon. I wasn't going to 'brood'." Riley retorted back quickly, "I call it...Sitting in a corner while reading a book and pretending like I don't exist." she shot Amy another forced smile, which quickly faltered when Theo brought up the teams and the Agon. Something Riley was trying to not think about.

The daughter of Artemis turned back to Amy and smirked as she raised an eyebrow, "Oh well I'm sorry. There weren't enough Hera children to pick from, my bad." she retorted back, a tone of sarcasm was evident enough. Riley sighed for a moment as she dug her hands into her pockets for a moment, looking back up when Amy brought up the Agon once again. Why couldn't anyone just avoid bringing it up? Was it too much to ask for? Like, at all? The whole entire point of this party was for them to all be able to not think about possibly dying in the next ensuing days. But here they were, bringing it up once more. Because why the absolute fuck not? Riley nodded to Amy's question about more alcohol, they could sure as hell use it, well, Riley could. By the look on Theo's face, what he needed was his dorm-room and bed. He looked like shit already.

Riley managed to catch a flash of color cross the dance floor and walk over to the bar. That stupid, bright colored mop of hair only belonged to one person in this entire damn Academy, and for once, it was a relief for Riley. But with the brief look on the person's face was enough for Riley to become concerned immediately for them. "Uhm...Drinks, yeah?" Riley started, looking at the other two for a moment. "I'll go get some more and be right back, yeah? Cool." Riley immediately swiveled on her heel and sauntered through the crowd, worming her way through the crowd before she found herself more or less almost falling into the counter of the bar itself, managing to catch herself. Giving the person that was sitting down a small smile, before she walked over and took a quick seat next to them at the bar. "You look like shit." she mused, flashing the person with multi-colored hair, a small smile. "Wow, thanks, Hayfield." a light Irish accent escaped the individual's lips as they spoke. Returning Riley's own small smile for one of their own. "The fuck you want, cousin?" they asked before taking a sip of their drink from a shot-glass that they rolled in their hands.

The brunnette chuckled at her cousin for a moment, shaking her head slightly. "Just...Noticed you looked a little down, is all...Ya know?" she gave a half smile, gently placing her hand atop their's for a moment. "I worry about you, Cas. That's all...You know that." she gave a reassuring smile. Cas slowly nodded, returning a small and genuine smile of their own. "I know, and I appreciate it, truly. But...I'm fine. You...You go and enjoy the rest of the party. I'm just gonna finish my drink here and...Probably head back to the dorm. I...I'm gonna call it an early night. All things considered." the child of Apollo said cooly, before downing the rest of the liquid in the glass. Slowly standing up as they pushed themself away from the bar counter. Riley nodded her head before she turned to the bar-keep, "I'll take three shots, please? One for me and, the other two for some friends?" the bark-keep nodded his head and went to retrieve the drinks. Riley smiled at Cas for a moment as they placed their hand on her left shoulder, giving it a gentle squeeze as they exchanged goodnights, and Cas disapeared into the crowd, headed off into the direction of the dormatories. Riley collected the drinks shortly after and headed back to her friends, to hopefully enjoy the rest of the night, if she could that is.

Amy just rolled her eyes as Riley claimed she wasn’t going to brood as such, laughing a little. But as the discussion continued, Amy got the impression that Riley didn’t particularly want to talk about it, and made a mental note not to bring it up again. This whole party was a reminder of what they were about to face into; Riley didn’t need it being shoved into her face by them too. Even if Riley didn’t seem to be the type who was there to straight up forget about the whole thing.

She disappeared to get drinks, rather suddenly, and Amy raised an eyebrow. “Think we hit a nerve,” she said, with a grimace. “But… can’t say I blame her. This whole thing seems kinda absurd and yet… not sure I can blame anyone for anything they do tonight. Most normal schools have proms. We have a big party before we all go fight in this tournament that might just get us killed,” she remarked.

She was about to continue along that line, when the song choice suddenly changed very obviously, and Amy almost snorted with laughter. “Are they actually serious? How cheesy can you get?” She remarked. "They’re just encouraging people to go make some dumb decisions in the trees or in the dorms or something. Bet anything an Aphrodite kid just got their hands on the playlist.” For one crazy moment, she thought about asking Theo to dance, but on glancing back out at the crowds, she couldn’t help but feel that she’d probably crush his toes and that they’d both just be awkward. So instead, she just leaned against him and laughed to herself again. “Bet you anything there’ll be a few shock pairings tonight and we’ll probably miss all the gossip when we’re in the Agon.”

Percy’s frustrated reaction to Min’s answer made him laugh, raising an eyebrow a little. Truth be told, he had no idea what he actually wanted to do. Even when they were stone cold sober, Percy was always better and coming up with these types of things than Min was, and Min was a long, long way from sober. He was about to say so, suggest that Percy came up with something, but a sudden change in music stole his attention. The contrast was almost laughable; from pounding bass and hypnotising lights to an almost sickening love song. There was a sarcastic comment on his tongue, but the feelings of hands on his hips completely wiped it from his mind.

Unsure of what else to do with his hands, he rested his arms on Percy’s shoulders. His thoughts were racing and yet, at the same time, he couldn’t seem to figure out a single coherent thought. He would have blamed it on the alcohol, except he wasn’t sure that the alcohol was solely to blame. Their previous conversation was entirely erased from his mind, his mind only able to focus on the feeling of hands on his hips.

So when Percy asked for an answer, Min stared blankly at him for a moment, trying to remember what it was in relation to. And then he laughed to himself. “I don’t even know. You’re always much better at this than I am,” he admitted. [color=2f444b]“But I like this.”[/color] The words were out of his mouth before he realised, it feeling a little closer to home than expected.

And then came the crushing, overwhelming fear that he could ruin everything by saying or doing the wrong thing. For some people, the pre-Agon bash was a chance to do dumb things, because did things like that matter when they were all putting their lives at risk anyway? But it didn’t seem that simple, and Min found himself afraid of ruining things if he wasn’t going to have a chance to make it right.

[color=2f444b]“I need to grab some air,”[/color] he said, forcing an apologetic smile and pulling away, making his way through the crowd to somewhere a little quieter. He just wanted a few seconds to pull himself together, but the minute he got out of the crowd, he could feel the hot sting of tears burning at the back of his eyes. He took a deep breath, trying to calm down a little.

Eden’s reputation was primarily that of the “Mom Friend” and he’d been fulfilling that role from the minute she’d shown up to the party. Except half of the people he was helping out were really just acquaintances who had gotten overly drunk, been separated from their friends, and who had then landed eyes on Eden and had roped him in to help. He had reunited more friends than he could count and had narrowly avoided being thrown up on three times. But he had at least gotten a few drinks out of it, which was better than nothing.

But as a result of reuniting groups, Eden had lost the people he was supposed to be meeting or was hoping to come across. After a quick scout confirmed what he thought, that he had no idea if they were even here or where they were, he sighed, draining his glass. Usually, he loved a party, but he was tired and vaguely fed up with the whole thing. So when the music shifted to some slow, romantic love song, he took it as his sign to abandon ship.

He began trekking back up towards the dorms, figuring he could at least hope for a half decent night’s sleep. But spotting a familiar figure up ahead of him, he frowned slightly, and broke into a slight jog to catch up with them.

“Cas!” He called as he caught up with them. “Good to know I’m not the only one done with this whole thing,” he joked. He took one look at them and frowned, folding his arms. “Alright, come on. Out with it. What’s up?” He asked. “And don’t bullshit me, I can see right through it.”

The fresh night air wafted across the child of Apollo’s skin as they walked back to the dorms, not fully paying attention to the world around them. Absentmindedly even bumping into a few other students as their mind was...elsewhere. It was only when they heard something that took them a full moment to process that their attention was being called. Cas blinked for a solid moment, shaking their head as they turned to look at who had called for them, seeing that it was only Eden. Cas blinked once more as he spoke, slowly processing what was being said, as their mind was still partially somewhere else. “Oh, hey Eden!” Cas forced out with a small smile, a small chuckle escaping their lips at their friend’s words, “Yeah uh...Party kinda...Lost my attention, I guess. Figured I’d call it early. Ya know?” the Apollo child reassured, giving a small nod of their head for a moment. Taking a deep breath as they gave a small shrug. Cas’ brown eyes scanned over the male’s face for a moment, before they began to turn as if attempting to walk, but knew full well Eden wasn’t going to let them leave.

Cas sighed softly, combing their fingers through their colorful hair for a moment as they took a deep breath, trying to think of something that they could say to get him off their back. Cas wasn’t the type to normally try to bullshit things, nor were they exactly the kind to want to come across as an asshole. That just wasn’t who they were, and anyone that knew them, well, truly knew Cas, knew they weren’t out to be an ass. “Look, Eden. It’s really nothing, okay? You don’t have to-” but they were quickly cut off as Eden immediately went from asking what was up, to telling them to try not to bullshit him. Warning how there wasn’t even a point in trying. The Apollo kid sighed as their head dipped down as their shoulder slumped forwards with a shrug, digging into the ground with the tip of their shoe for a moment. All the actions of one large, none-verbal, ‘I don’t know’, but Cas knew he wouldn’t fall for it.

Cas immediately bit their lip, an overly drawn out exhale sounded as they threw their head back with a grown, “I hate when you do this shit, ya know that?” their tone was raised, their light accent appearing for just a moment and was easily gone the next. Eden raised an eyebrow and grinned slightly at the victory.“Ya know that girl, Nicole? The one I asked to the party? The uh...The Aphrodite chick?” Cas started, looking back down as they were ashamed to verbally admit the next part aloud, “The one that uh...I kinda had a thing for? Yeah well…” Cas combed their fingers through their hair once more, pulling it back a bit as they looked around nervously, fiddling with their hands for a moment, “Safe to say she...Kinda sorta didn’t...We didn’t really vibe like I thought we would, yeah? I put myself out there again, Eden and...It blew up in my face..” Castiella bit their lip again, “I was stupid and thought something...I don’t know, maybe something would actually come from this but...Apparently that’s not how how she looked at me. Apparently she’s kinda the uhm…’One and Done’ sorta deal, if you get me.” they said with raised eyebrows, hoping Eden got it. They didn’t want to have to say it outloud.

As soon as Cas mentioned Nicole, Eden had a vague idea of where this was going, and had to stop himself from grimacing. He sighed as Cas explained everything that had happened and that things hadn’t worked out between them. It was no wonder that they looked so deflated, that wasn’t the type of thing you particularly wanted to happen right before you went into a tournament in which you’d be risking your life.

“I’m sorry Cas, that really sucks. But listen, it’s her loss. Honestly, she doesn’t even know what she’s losing out on,” he said. “And besides, you could do way better anyway, just putting that out there. Wait till we emerge from the Agon victorious, everyone will be falling at our feet and begging for our favour,” he added. But studying Cas for another second or two, he knew words weren’t going to be quite enough, and so he held his arms out for a hug. “Come here, you dumbass.”

Cas simply just nodded their head at their friend’s words, giving a small shadow of a smirk at his comments. Truth be told, Cas didn’t believe any of it. They weren’t some big hot-shot on campus like some of the other students. Sure, Cas had a reputation on campus but, it wasn’t exactly always for the best reason(s). They just wish they had done a few things differently, yet here they were. Unable to change anything.

They looked at their friend and gave a simple shrug, “Oh yeah, cuz you know all those kids will just be so floored by our impressive skills. No doubt about it.” Cas grimly joked back. The more they thought about the Agon, and what exactly could transpire during it, caused that small pit they already had in their stomach, to only get bigger and bigger the more they thought about it. And Cas knew the more they focused on it, eventually it would just end up swallowing them up inside and they’d be lost to that eternally, dark pit of anxiety and dread. It was only when Eden opened his arms and demanded that they came in for a hug, that Cas was only able to nod and walk over to their friend, returning the hug. Cas found themself burying their face into his shoulder for a moment, allowing the hug to linger on for a little bit longer than either of them may have initially intended. But Cas knew Eden well enough at this point, that he’d stay there in the embrace for however long they may have needed it.

After a few short more moments, Cas finally released Eden from the embrace, taking a few steps back as they took a deep breath. A failed attempt at trying to compose themself a little while longer. Cas fidgeted with their hands for a moment before looking back at Eden, “Uhm..I think..I think I’m gonna call it a night, Eden. We...We got shit to do tomorrow and, I think it’d be best if we got as much sleep as possible, ya know?” they gestured with a nod, “That and, I need to stop by and get something for Lex. I doubt she had dinner again. You know how she is…” Cas said with a small smirk, before taking a few more steps back, “See you bright and early, Eden? Let’s kick some arse, aye?” they gave him a small smirk, and nod of their head before they began to turn and make their way back to the dormitory.

The hug lasted a while longer than expected, but Eden also knew that Cas wasn’t the type for prolonged hugs unless they really needed one. He held them for as long as they needed, then nodded sympathetically as they stepped away. Honestly, with the Agon looming, it seemed that most people needed a hug tonight anyway, even people who were having significantly easier evenings than Cas. He could read them as they tried and failed to compose themselves; so when Cas said they were going to head back to the dorms, he nodded again.

“Cool. I should probably head back and make sure nobody makes any ridiculously dumb decisions anyway,” he said. In reality, he wanted to head back to the dorms himself as well, but he got the impression that Cas wanted to walk back up to the school by themself, and he didn’t want to intrude. “Tell Lex that I say hi. And sleep well, we need those mad archery skills at their finest tomorrow, ya hear?” He instructed with a grin.

They formed a small smile as a small chuckle escaped their lips as they looked back at Eden once more, “Oh for sure, you keep them in line, Eden.” they gave him a playful wink before nodding, “Oh, always. We’re gonna smoke those Artemis kids. Have them running for their money.” Cas grinned, before shaking their head. “Well, I’ll let you get back to all that fun party stuff. Make sure to get at least some sleep. I'll be sure to tell Lex you say hi. See you tomorrow, Eden.” Cas said with a small, but genuine smile and finally turned back around and left for the dormitory.

Theo stood by awkwardly as Riley and Amy conversed, being able to detect the ever looming awkwardness by the second. Theodore was never really one for socializing either, so he could understand where Riley was coming from at least. And then of course, there was the residential, social butterfly of a friend, Amy. He simply stood by and nodded as Riley excused herself for a few drinks, watching her dart off towards the bar and then disappear into the crowd. Theo looked back at Amy when she mentioned having hit a nerve with Riley, and simply nodded his head a bit. It made sense, for all they knew that tomorrow, could be the day that they all signed their lives away just for some sick competition. Yet here they were, trying to act as normal as any other day would have been, even though they all knew deep down that they were simply bullshitting themselves. Nothing about this was normal. They were a bunch of kids, some barely even out of High School, were willing to be killed for some damn game. It sent a shiver down his spine and a pit to form in his stomach as Amy continued to speak.

He gave her a small nod as the music changed from an upbeat, dance song, to a slow-dance. He couldn’t help but awkwardly shuffle on his feet as he looked down for a moment, before looking back up and tucking a few strands of hair behind his right ear. “Oh I bet that was the case...I don’t see Erin up on the stage anymore, and I doubt she’d ever play anything this...well..Not exactly in her style of music, I guess.” he stated calmly. While he wasn’t exactly the closest with the student in question, he knew her at least well enough to know her music taste, and this sure as hell wasn’t it. Theo looked back at Amy when she joked about all the ‘shock pairings’ that could potentially happen. He couldn’t help but chuckle and roll his eyes at the thought. Young adults, alcohol, hormones, all mixed with the potential ideal of ones life ending...Wasn’t too farfetch’d.

Theo shook his head as he wrapped one of his arms loosely around Amy’s shoulder, looking out at the crowd, “I mean, I’m pretty sure I saw like...A whole group of students walking back towards the dorms and...Well...People are definitely making mistakes tonight, that much is for sure.” he said rather mockingly.

Amy laughed at the mention of Erin. She’d only met the daughter of Dionysus a handful of times, but she got the impression that this very much wasn’t Erin’s style of music. She wasn’t alone in that. Even if Amy wasn’t opposed to the odd cheesy love song, it wasn’t the right type of music for a big, dumb party like this. Parties were supposed to have music you could dance to, music that could make you feel drunker than you already were. Slow, emotional love songs just made the realisation of what they were facing worse.

She smiled at the feeling of Theo’s arm around her shoulder, before laughing at his comment about people making mistakes. “How many teams do you think are gonna be made super awkward as a result?” She asked. “Because I will be shocked if nobody fucks up and sleeps with their teammate.” But watching all of the slowly moving couples across the dance floor left Amy with a feeling of longing. It was cheesy and honestly ridiculous considering the whole idea of the party was to let loose and have fun, but that didn’t mean Amy didn’t want the teen movie moment. She straightened up and stepped in front of Theo, holding out a hand.

“Well, when in Rome, right?” She asked. “Fair warning, I will probably step on your toes, I’ll almost definitely twist my ankle in these shoes, and I will definitely get the giggles. But that might just save a few people from making monumentally terrible decisions so it might be worth it. What do you say?” She asked. She played it town as being chill and more about having fun than anything, but her heart was pounding in her chest, unsure of what was going to happen next.

Theo chuckled at the question he was asked, pondering for a moment, “I honestly don’t know.” he started, rubbing his chin for a moment as he thought, “I feel like it’d be safe to say more than enough.” he shrugged. He chuckled once more at the mention if no one fucks up and makes things awkward for the teams. He already knew a few of the other teams had people either secretly hooking up, or were already together in some fashion. But someone would for sure have to make a major fuckup, he was just somewhat curious for who it’d be.

He was snapped out of his brief train of thought when he felt Amy escape the loose grasp he had on her shoulder and stepped in front of him, hand extended. Theo blinked in confusion for a moment as he tried to figure out what was going on, but it clicked when Amy cleared the air and was only asking him to dance. He felt himself fight back an awkward chuckle, thinking she was only joking, until he realized just how serious she was at the time. He gently took her hand in his and nodded as they slowly made their way to the dance-floor, “I’m no proper dancer so...I can’t judge too hard.” he joked. “Well, as long as you don’t mind us both making proper fools out of us tonight well...Who could a single dance hurt, really?” he questioned with a small smile. He could feel his heart beating rapidly in his chest as he placed on hand in Amy’s and the other around her waist, keeping them just a bit apart. Theodore wasn’t exactly the bold type, but he had his moments of being a gentleman and this was no exception. He always knew he had unspoken feelings for Amy, someone who was one of his closest and dearest friends, and the prospect of them possibly both dying, or one of them in the Agon that would follow from tomorrow on out, well...To say he was scared beyond belief for both of them, was an understatement.

Amy smiled encouragingly at Theo as they stepped out onto the dance floor and Theo rested his hand on her waist, ever the gentleman. It felt like her heart was in her throat, the distance between them at once too close and not close enough. The first few steps were slow and unsure, both of them still finding their feet. Amy knew that this was the closest thing she would get to a prom, and it was nothing like how she’d pictured it when she’d imagined her prom. Everyone was dressed all wrong, and the threat of death or injury certainly hadn’t been hanging over her in her imagination. But she was here with a person she liked and she was having fun, and at least the reality matched that much of the daydream.

And then she stumbled over her feet for the first time, and she began to laugh. From there, it was a disaster in progress. They both began fumbling over their feet and losing their footing, and Amy’s laughter was just making her coordination worse. It ended with her twisting her ankle and losing her balance, trying and failing miserably to catch herself. And then she sat on the ground, laughing enough to make her tear up slightly.

“Jesus Christ, and they want to let me loose with a sword tomorrow?” She remarked, looking at Theo and laughing. She could feel the dirty looks she was getting, but she didn’t care in the slightest. “It might be a good thing you’re not on my team, Theo dear.”

Theo couldn’t help but chuckle at the comment of letting her wield a sword, it truly was a good question if he was being honest with himself. Well, not really. Truth be told, he was genuinely impressed by Amy and her ability as a fighter. Sure, he himself had the potential to be a very combative person, being a child of Hades and everything that came with it, but he wasn’t a fighter. Not like the others. He preferred using his abilities to help the others in training or combat, he didn’t personally like being one to engage in combat. Just wasn’t his way, as well as his fear of some of his abilities. Theo shook his head as Amy spoke up again, breaking the momentary silence he felt as he thought. “I mean, there are far worse people to be teamed up with, so…” he shrugged a bit, looking to the side for a moment before looking back down at Amy, pausing for a moment before he spoke, “I know you are more than capable of taking care of yourself out there but...Please, promise to take care of yourself out there, yeah?” Theo questioned with raised eyebrows for a moment, “I just don’t want to lose anyone out there, preferably no one dying, truth be told..”

Theo’s remark about there being far less people to be paired with earned a grin out of her, but the request to take care of herself turned it into a smaller, more bashful smile. It was followed up with a comment about not wanting to lose anyone, and she just laughed.

“You’re not gonna lose me, Theo,” she said, somewhat seriously. “I’m far too stubborn for that,” she added with a grin. “Come on then, it’s not gentlemanly to leave a lady sitting on the floor, even if it is her own bloody fault that she got here,” she said, holding out both hands to him for a hand to pull her to her feet.

Theo couldn’t help but chuckle, as he in fact hadn’t yet helped Amy back to her feet in his drunken state. He reached down and gently helped Amy back up onto her own two legs, almost falling over in the process. Maybe he did have too much to drink, he thought to himself. Once he had found both of them back on stable ground, Theo let out a soft sigh as he nodded his head, “I know you’ll be fine. I just...Sorry. You’ll do fine.” he said with a tone of reassurance, nodding his head once more. “So, other than tripping over our own goddamn feet all night, what else do you want to do before tomorrow morning comes and we’re faced with endless dangers?” he said with a playful grin.

Amy got another fit of the giggles as Theo nearly fell too, and had to keep her own feet planted firmly on the ground. She just signed and grinned at him as he said she’d do fine. “You’ll do just fine too, Theo. Just gotta have a little faith.” She said softly. At the question of what she wanted to do next, she stopped to think for a second. “Well, I’ve got to say, slow dancing kinda sucks, so I’m okay with not trying that again. We should probably go find Riley and make sure she’s not sulking alone in some corner somewhere,” she said. Then she grinned at Theo, raising an eyebrow slightly. “Unless you still want me all to yourself,” she teased, raising an eyebrow slightly. Part of it was just that, teasing. Theo was especially adorable when he got flustered. But part of her also wondered. Wondered if she should take a chance given what faced them tomorrow. Wondered if it was worth potentially ruining everything for food.

Theo forced out a small smile at Amy’s comment, he was nervous but he'd try his best to play it off as well as he could anyway. The son of Hades let out a small, genuine chuckle as Amy commented on the fact that slow dancing sucked. “Yeah uh, you got a point there.” he nodded in agreement. As for finding their long lost friend, well, Gods knew where she was. If she hadn’t ditched them yet, it was only a certain amount of time until she did. Theo nodded, “Alright, let’s go find her and bring her back to have some fun before the night’s over. Or so help us, we’ll never let her live it down.” Theo chuckled, grabbing Amy’s hand with his own and the two went on a search for their friend, wherever the hell she had gotten herself holled away to.
