    Summary

    Clint was the first one to notice the kid, maybe sixteen or seventeen years old, wearing an old blue hoodie over a faded orange shirt and sitting cross-legged on a bench in Central Park eating a sandwich.  All normal things for teenage boys to be doing.  He shook his head and brushed black hair out of his face as he took another bite, completely unconcerned.

    Meanwhile, Thor flew two feet in front of him at the speed of sound as a giant robot flung him away from the fight happening literally right in front of the bench.

    Or: Percy Jackson meets Clint Barton because he's doing things he shouldn't be doing. As usual.

    Summary

    Percy was at least happy that this wasn't a prophecy. Stealing back some demigod weapons from a mortal? Sure, Iron Man was a superhero and a genius, but after dealing with Gaea, that was nothing. They just had to steer clear of anyone who might recognize them, and they were positive that they could pull it off easier than most of their quests. And potentially land Leo a job, while they're at it.

    But Percy should have known better. Nothing is ever that simple for a demigod.

    Summary

    Well,” she says, long and drawn out, and from the glint in her eyes he can tell this is some kind of inner joke, kept from him. “I’ve been a diplomat, and a race car driver, and a chef, and an astronaut, and a veterinarian--”

    “An astronaut,” he repeats dryly. He wants to call her on her lie - but. But. How strange. There’s no indication of a lie: no rise in temperature, no quickening of her pulse, no change to her eyes, nothing.

    She laughs. “You don’t know the half of it."

    Summary

    “I’ll think about it,” Charlotte says with a false, tremulous smile, already knowing she will not take it. Tia had been too proud to take her help before: she remembers wanting to help, wanting so badly, and Big Daddy holding her hand and telling her that Tia’s family would not take anything they didn’t feel like they’d earned. She’d thought it stupid, then, and she still thinks it’s stupid, now. Charlotte will take whatever is offered and then more, but not this. “But I think I’d rather stay. This is still my home.”

    It’s her home, but for how much longer? The creditors are fewer, but with Big Daddy around, they at least knew there was a good chance of getting their money’s worth and didn’t bother pushing too hard. Now there’s only Charlotte, and Big Daddy had always kept her away from the business side of things, so she knows nothing. All she knows are the growing piles of correspondence untouched by the entrance, and the people clamouring at the mansion’s gates, and the pitying looks she gets whenever she tries to venture more than one step outside.

    She wants Big Daddy back. No matter the price.

    --

    Charlotte has always been all about wanting. Wishing on stars just didn't cut it anymore.
