    Summary

    "Anne’s feeling that word where you’re missing something you never had,” explains Diana, as they come to a stop outside of Terran Outpost AV1883's lone lab entrance.

    “Weltschmerz,” says Gilbert immediately.

    “I am not,” says Anne, “feeling weltschmerz.”

    Summary

    Maybe he was so relieved that it was all finally over that his guard was down. Maybe the lack of sleep and food was messing with his head. Maybe the idea of resting in a cot for a few days was more tempting than he would ever admit. (He wouldn't have to talk to anyone, do anything. Ambrosia and nectar would be brought directly to his bedside. There was even a distinct possibility that he could get a chance to sleep, for once.)

    So maybe when Will Solace had grabbed his shoulder and gritted out, "You promised me, Death Boy," like fighting him on it would be useless, Nico gave in almost immediately.

    It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    (or; Nico and Will get to know each other the summer after the war. Spoiler alert: they fall in love.)

    Summary

    Over the last few days, Annabeth has spent a great deal of time imagining what Travis and Connor stole from Percy. She imagined valuables and prized possessions and even—thanks to Malcolm—something as ridiculous as an engagement ring. Surely, it must have been something special to warrant this much antagonism and strife.

    But never, not once, had she considered the possibility of a baby doll. Because who in Hades would?

    “That wasn’t,” someone snaps, “just some children’s toy!”

    Percy’s voice, freshly woken from his stunned silence, is shaking in a way that she has never heard before. He stands, brusquely pulling his shoulder out of Annabeth’s reach. Right now, Percy’s rage is a palpable entity, like the briny wind of a sea storm, forcing the Stolls to shrink slightly as Percy rises to his feet.

    “That doll,” he grits out, “is worth fifty percent of my Home Economics grade!”
