    Summary

    “She’ll never claim me,” he whispered. Silena shook her head, eyes wild as she looked around for anyone who could be watching.

    “My mother doesn’t remember half of her children as it is,” she said with a note of bitterness. “If you do something to impress her, it won’t matter. Return the bolt in her name. She’ll claim you if you act the part. If you stay unclaimed then they'll figure out what you really are," she said, squeezing his hands tightly. Percy's heart sped up.

    "I - I don't know the first thing about Aphrodite-"

    "My mother was born of sea foam," Silena cut him off. "And if you're really who I think you are... you are the sea. You can pull this off," she said and touched his cheek. "Get the bolt. Survive," she said. Percy swallowed.

    "What if I can't act the part?" He asked. Silena's expression went blank for a moment. Slowly, she slipped off her bracelet and placed it in his hands.

    "If you're going to be one of us... you better learn."

    Or

    AU where Percy has to hide the fact he's a Big Three kid otherwise he'll be killed on the spot. Unfortunately for him, unclaimed kids tend to raise the most suspicion... but he might have found a loophole in the form of Aphrodite.

    Summary

    Naruto never had much growing up. Even later, he only managed to keep hold of one thing. His name, his history, his sense of self. Time eventually managed to take that from him, too. But he gets something back for it.

    He gets more time. He gets the chance to change everything.

    Unfortunately for him, Naruto has absolutely no idea where to start.

    (Shikamaru always said the best laid plans never survived contact with enemy)

    Summary

    Over the years, Kakashi’s become an expert in activating the Sharingan for the smallest moment if he wants to take a picture. A few seconds for a video. Now that he’s getting closer to the end, he’s made sure to document all the little things. Chakra exhaustion is worth it for these precious memories. Besides, he’s in War Ops now, which means he should be fine.

    And he is, until he isn’t.

    Summary

    “You know,” Ouyang Zizhen says thoughtfully over dinner one day, “I’ve never seen Wei-qianbei get jealous before.”

    Lan Jingyi pauses for the briefest second, remembers the sect rule of keeping silence during meals, and decidedly forgoes it. “What?”

    “Well,” Ouyang Zizhen continues, “Hanguang-jun always has a lot of admirers everywhere we go, but Wei-qianbei never seems to mind it.”

    “Why are we talking about this?” Jin Ling asks flatly.

    -

    Four times Wei Wuxian doesn't get jealous, and the one time he does.
