Characters/Pairings: Annabeth/Jason and Annabeth/Percy
Spoilers: Just general spoilers for Heroes of Olympus, as usual.
Summary: Jason's supposed to be the one for her. So why is Annabeth drawn to the dark haired son of Neptune instead?
Notes: Wrote a simpler verison of this fic for a tumblr AU meme, then when I tried to re-post it last week, my brain was like, "Nonono, you didn't do a decent enough job, go sit in the corner and re-write." So there you are.
( After everything they’ve been through in the last ten years, everyone naturally expects Annabeth to end up with Jason Grace when the saving the world from Kronos bit is all said and done. )
Summary: Jason's not even sure Reyna particularly likes him, but he figures it won't hurt to try.
Notes: Wrote this a while ago for princesarah for some meme-related fic writing thing on my tumblr and meant to repost it over here since it was longer than a few sentences, but I never got around to it! Enjoy.
( Before he was elected praetor, Jason hadn’t paid much attention to the daughter of Bellona. )
Title: From Where You Are
Spoilers: For Son of Neptune.
Summary: Percy deals with the unexpected aftermath of the Argos II's landing.
Notes: This the alternative ending to All Roads Lead to Rome aka what will actually happen in Mark of Athena because RSquared is a troll and he is going to milk this as hard as possible.
Me, bitter, what? Title comes from the Lifehouse song From Where You Are which I'm astounded has not ended up on a pre/post-SoN fanmix that I've seen.

I tried to be as accurate as possible, but there's probably a 1-2 year error on anything that isn't specifically stated with a year date in canon which wasn't much, to tell you the truth. I based most of the PJO events on Percy's birthday since it was one of the few dates we actually had in canon and to get his year date, I subtracted 16 from the year The Last Olympian was published (2009) to get his birthdate at August 18, 1993. Everything else was based largely on what was found in canon, but some of that is still contradictory and up to interpretation.
Feel free to ask questions about how I decided on certain dates or argue with me about stuff on the timeline. I love to nerd out about this stuff. I'll probably update the timeline as more information comes out.

Characters/Pairings: ensemble from both series, Percy/Annabeth, Jason/Annabeth (if you squint)
Spoilers/Warnings: Major spoilers for The Son of Neptune.
Summary: If Rick Riordan had written
Author’s notes: So, funny thing. I wrote this as an, “Eff you and your cliffhangers, Riordan,” fic...
( ’Oh, sure, just fine,’ Will Solace said. 'Just nearly got impaled, no biggie. Good thing I've got abs of steel.’ )
There are also minor spoilers floating around on tumblr and the Camp Half-Blood wiki, so beware! Unless you're weak willed at the last minute like me, then it's all fun and games.
I'll be turning comment notification off on this post sometime tonight. If you have the book already, please wait until tomorrow to post comments with spoilers and if you are posting spoilers, please warn as much as possible.
eta: If you have a Kindle, copies of SoN are downloading early.
Oh, who am I kidding, waiting for this book to come out has been totally and completely painful. And we've still got one more week to go!
I've decided to compile a list of things we do know that's going to happen in the Son of Neptune, plus links to the new character profiles if you haven't seen them already, and then my BIG LONG WISH LIST of things that I want to happen in this book and/or questions I want answered.
This probably won't be the last post on SoN I'll have before the book comes out. Riordan will probably drop another, "Nico isn't going to be in this book, haha suckers!" bomb three days before it's released like he did last year, thus ensuring my eternal wrath and his place among the most trolly of authors ever. But if you feel the urge the make last-minute gif spams, drop some new news tidbits, or share your own theories, definitely make use of this post!
( i. What we know so far )
( ii. The characters )
( iii. Theories/Speculation/What I Want Answered, Dammit )
Since I'm a Grown Up now and have a job, I probably won't get to read SoN as fast or immediately as some other people. I'll probably have a discussion post going up at some other point as Oct. 4 draws closer and if you're going to comment or squee on that, please be respectful about spoilers. I had several people last year commenting with spoilers after I specifically asked for people not to, and it was totally annoying.
But until then, have fun and speculate away!
( Slight spoilers be this way~ )
ETA: tatooine has been kind enough to transcribe the audio!
The excerpt was read out loud and I wasn't smart enough to grab a screen grab of the cover art (although I'm sure it'll be online by the end of the week), so here's a recap of what was said!
( CUE SQUEE AND SPOILERS BENEATH THE CUT )
An excerpt from the Son of Neptune is now online! It's different from what was read at the event, but still. PERCY.
