6 Percy Jackson and the Olympians/The Heroes of Olympus Recs, Various

My kid sister's finally hooked on reading, and she loves this series to death. I'm slightly jealous, since she got to read Mark of Athena already - oh, the time you have when you are young. Anyway, wanted to rec a few of these ages ago, and I'm finally getting around to it. :)

Fandom Category: Percy Jackson and the Olympians 
Pairing: Annabeth Chase/Percy Jackson
Fic Title: Three
Author: icy roses
Link: Three
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Romance, Drama, Humor, Angst, Etc. The Things That Make a Life (or Three)
WIP?: No 

Why This Must Be ReadOne life is not enough for love; Percy and Annabeth try for the Isles of the Blest, but it seems that fate is not always kind to them. Okay, tell me, how can you resist a summary like that??? TELL ME, because then I might finally be able to break my addiction to awesome fanfiction...oh, wait, why would anybody want to do that? :D Anyway, read this, because it's epic. No, serious, it's EPIC. The author says so herself (by the way, you want other awesome Percabeth works, she's one of the best). In addition to its EPICNESS, it's also so very, very in-character, from the first word to the last. It's Percy and Annabeth, even when it's not; and wow, does that sound weird, but even when they're different people they're still them and they still manage to find each other. And that, my friends, is what makes this fic beautiful. The what-if tone of it, the way it explores all the different facets of their personalities, how they might be if things had been different. It's lovely, and gorgeous, and simply, simply amazing. Go. Read it. Bring tissues, and prepare to laugh even as tears run down your face. :)



Excerpt:

"Bad things are guaranteed to happen if you don't come with your husband to the bedroom right now." He puts his hand on her waist and steers her out of the kitchen. She snatches the baby monitor off the counter just before it goes out of reach. 

Her hair is in a frazzled bun and a baggy, loose maternity long-sleeve clashes with her dark blue teddy bear pajama pants. "I feel completely un-sexy."

"Well, that's why you have me. So I can make you feel sexy again," he says as he shuts the door with one foot.

By the time one of the boys starts sniffling on the monitor, Percy has succeeded in the task, of course, and Annabeth can't complain. 





Fandom Category: Percy Jackson and the Olympians
Pairing: Annabeth Chase/Percy Jackson
Fic Title: Sense and Sexuality
Author: greenconverses 
Link: Sense and Sexuality
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Future-fic, Humor
WIP?: No 

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's HILARIOUS, that's why. Annabeth, true to form, plans a pain-staking seduction, and Percy, also true to form, is clueless. Cuts off before sexy-times are to be had, but it's still hot and cute and funny.

Pairing: Annabeth Chase/Percy Jackson
Fic Title: Fireworks

Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Future-fic, Humor
WIP?: No 

Why This Must Be Read: 
Percy Jackson has been in love a grand total of four times in his entire life. Wait. Why are you staring like that? Stop it. Four is a lot for sixteen whole years. Funny, in-character, and such a good look at the way Percy thinks and feels and loves (with all his heart and will). And, of course, it has some Percy-obliviousness thrown in. Every Percabeth fic needs that. :D



Fandom Category: Percy Jackson and the Olympians/The Heroes of Olympus
Pairing: Reyna/Jason Grace
Fic Title: If We Win
Author: icy roses 
Link: If We Win 
Rating/Warning(s): PG, Spoilers for TLH and SoN (if you don't know who Reyna is, you'll be lost)
Genre: Pre-TLH, Humor, Friendship, Some Angst

WIP?: No 

Why This Must Be Read: Why, oh, why are these two not canon? Sorry Jasper fans, but you've gotta admit that Reyna is awesomeness incarnate, and she and Jason totally could've been the Percabeth of New Rome - and this story shows you why. It reveals some of the depths that Reyna possesses that you caught glimpses of in the books; it gives her a history, a reason for her dignity and poise, a distinctive voice that is hers alone. And it shows how she comes to trust Jason, shows you the people they really are behind their roles as leaders of the Roman demigods, shows how they have hopes and dreams outside of pure survival. It's not explicitly romantic, but i feel it is a unique look at a special relationship between two friends who know sides of each other that no one else could.

Pairing: Reyna/Jason Grace
Fic Title: It's All In The Timing
Author: greenconverses 
Link: It's All In The Timing
Rating/Warning(s): PG, Spoilers for TLH
Genre: Pre-TLH, Humor
WIP?: No 

Why This Must Be Read: I stumbled across this fic and it solidified my love of Reyna/Jason in less than 500 words. It's that good. A little peek at the might-have-been romance between the two. I especially love the patient, quiet, but nevertheless determined manner to Jason's courtship. :)



Fandom Category: Percy Jackson and the Olympians/The Heroes of Olympus
Pairing: Various (too many to name)
Fic Title: Maps
Author: koalakoala 
Link: Maps 
Rating/Warning(s): PG, Spoliers for all of PJO & TLH, SoN, MoA
Genre: Romance, Friendship, Humor, Adventure, Angst, Etc.
WIP?: Yes (each individual drabble is stand-alone, though)

Why This Must Be Read: A beautiful, beautiful collection of brilliant, well-written, thoughtful, funny, and absolutely lovely drabbles. Practically every pairing you can imagine is represented in this collection (oh, not to worry, it's all het), and a few you didn't even know you wanted to read (for example, my love for Nico/Thalia started here). Each piece is a joy to read, because every character is wonderfully true to themselves, and so much is said in so few words that I simply marvel at koalakoala's skill. :)
