    Summary

    "I'm looking for books about Greek mythology," Percy told the librarian. "About a boy who fell out of the sky." 

    "That would be Icarus, dear," she said. "He accidentally flew too close to the sun and paid the ultimate price. It's a fascinating myth, if sad. He fell into the sea and drowned." 

    Percy bit his tongue to stop himself from crying out. He could remember someone calling him by that name, long ago. Someone who had loved him beyond measure. He could hear the roaring of a monster and furious shouting, could see a young woman with sad eyes and a hero holding a ball of twine in one hand and a sword in the other. He saw the golden man again. His eyes bore into Percy's very soul, tearing him apart and leaving him bare. 

    Icarus hadn't accidentally flown too close to the sun, Percy suddenly knew. He'd wanted to burn, wanted to fly. He'd wanted to fall. 

    ———————

    Or, in another life, Percy was Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the sun. Apollo is still the same.

    Summary

    Percy never thought he'd say this, but he felt a smidgeon of sympathy for a Titan. If hindsight was 20-20, then there was no way that Epimetheus, with his shoddy vision, ever walked anywhere without crashing into innumerable walls.
    For Percy, after all, the clues had been as obvious as a trail of breadcrumbs.
    But it still took Daedalus showing Percy, not Icarus, the marvellous mechanical wings the inventor had devised to escape the Labyrinth, for the demigod to notice the arrow speeding straight for his face.
    Being stuck here, not in a dream, but in someone else's body, was the wall that Percy had crashed into and brought down on himself.

    Percy had landed in the past – and he had no one but himself to blame.

    Summary

    (Fem!Percy)
    After finally defeating Kronos, Percy had expected peace, not a flash of molten gold after which she found herself as a twelve year old girl in a village recently reduced to rubble, surrounded by forest and Ancient Greek.

    A little too much Ancient Greek.

     

    (Or, Percy is flung back into the past and gets a hands-on history lesson when it comes to living during the Greek classism.)
