Hello all! Blame the plot bunnies for this one. -_- I forgot to feed them potatoes again. BAD BUNNIES. ANYWAYS!
Brand new story for you guys! This is beyond AU... One big change is that all the Glee kids were born in 1986 (you'll see why **). Rachel has known Shelby for about three years now, and the Charmed Ones' lives have been pushed back seven years. Well. Not all. Most. You'll see!
Did I say Charmed Ones? Oh yes, yes I did. This is my very first... *drumroll* THREE WAY CROSSOVER! Percy Jackson/Glee/Charmed! The insanity!
Will I be talking to the characters after each chapter? Yes! If you'd like to either: A) Question them B) Critique them C) Hug them D) All of the above or E) Other... Submit that in your review. :P
On to the story! Much love and thanks to my beta, Mint Pizza Queen... I LOOOOVE YOU! Thanks for the endless support. And teasing. :P
Disclaimer: If I owned any of these, Luke wouldn't have died, St. Berry or Raine would be a reality, and Chris and Wyatt would have their own goddamn spinoff.

"Hey Rachel!" Finn Hudson strode over to his girlfriend's locker, where she stood, putting books away. He grimaced slightly at her outfit. He didn't really think it was cute when she wore those animal sweaters. They looked kind of ugly. Oh well. It didn't matter to him, that much. He leaned against the lockers. "Are you busy this Friday night?"
Rachel Berry turned to look at him, her brown hair swinging over her shoulder. "Actually, yes I am, Finn. I told you yesterday when you asked me. I'm going to Shelby's on Friday. It's our monthly catch up dinner." She closed her locker and started down the hallway to Glee club. "Besides, Friday nights are also when I have my dance classes."
"Oh. Yeah, huh. Well, can't you skip this once?" Finn jogged up to her and walked next to her. "I mean, you go every month. Can't you just skip one dinner and one class?"
Rachel whirled on him. "Finn, you know how important it is to me to have a relationship with Shelby!"
"She should've kept you!"
"I would've been on Vocal Adrenaline. And besides, I refuse to miss this class!" Rachel snapped. "Come on, let's get to Glee." She turned back around and walked briskly to the choir room.
Finn rolled his eyes. Rachel could be such a drama queen sometimes.

"So, are we on for tomorrow? Quinn's throwing a major party. It's gonna be totally awesome." Finn grinned at Rachel, who rolled her eyes.
"Finn, as I told you several times this week, I'm going to Shelby's, then to dance!" She closed her locker, crossing her arms.
Finn shrugged. "It was worth a try." He bent down and kissed her cheek. "See you tomorrow," he said as he walked away.
Rachel rolled her eyes. Finn could be so difficult.
"Hey Rachybee!" Santana walked up to the girl. "You going to the party tomorrow?"
"Ah, no, Tana. I have my monthly dinner with Shelby." Rachel grinned at the Latina. "Then I have dance after. You know I can't miss either of those."
Santana pouted. "Are you serious? One of my best girls isn't going to be at the best end of the year party?" She sighed. "But, yeah. Your dinners are important to you. I know." The Latina grinned.
"If Finn could understand that, it'd make it so much easier." Rachel sighed and started to walk down the hallway.
Santana rolled her eyes. "I don't know why you're still with that Neanderthal. You deserve so much better, Rachel."
"I… well…" Rachel stuttered nervously. Santana had a point. She dropped her voice to whisper in the other girl's ear. "I was planning on, well, breaking up with him tomorrow anyways." She saw the look of shock on her friend's face. "Don't tell. I really want this to be a clean break."
"I won't tell! Don't worry." Santana smiled over at her. "If you need any backup, say no more. Me and Brit will back you up."
"I'm hoping it doesn't get that… difficult." Rachel grimaced. She could already tell that Finn would take it incredibly hard, asking if there was another boy or something.
"Sweetie. It's Finn. What do you expect!" Santana scoffed. "You're screwed, Berry." She chuckled. "See you tomorrow, Rachybee," she giggled as she sauntered away.
"I'm screwed." Rachel shook her head and walked out to her car. She needed her ice cream.

"I just want you to know that I am incredibly proud of all of you. We may not have won Regionals this year…" Will Schuester paused to look at each of the Glee clubbers. Rachel was ignoring Finn, who was obviously arguing with her, and exchanging pointed looks with Santana, who had her legs on another chair. Kurt and Blaine were holding hands and smiling at each other. Quinn was leaning her head on Mercedes while holding Sam's hand. Lauren and Puck were sitting extremely close to each other. Brittany was sitting on Artie's lap. Tina was sitting on Mike's lap and kissing his cheek. Will smiled. "But we'll win it next year. We're gonna get it." The entire group clapped and whistled, cheering loudly. They may have not placed at Regionals, but that didn't mean anything to them. Will grinned at them. "Alright, you guys. Have a good summer, get some rest! Next year, that trophy is ours!"
The group started to filter out, all of them talking about Quinn's party later on that night. As Santana passed Rachel, the girls exchanged looks. Santana nodded her head and continued out. Rachel grabbed Finn as he started to leave. "Finn. We need to talk."
"Yeah, sure. Can you make it quick though? I need to go help Puck get the food." Finn sat back down.
Will stood in the corner, clearing up a few papers. He noticed the two Glee clubbers still in the room, but didn't tell them to go. The two of them had had a rough year.
"Finn, I don't think this is working. By this, I mean us. We just don't belong together." Rachel had spent the night practicing what she would say, and decided on brutally honest. "You hate my clothes. You're easily annoyed by my personality. I can see it in your face every time. You don't care about Broadway or New York like I do. You find it boring. I'm just your rebound girl, Finn. We both know it."
Finn gaped at her. "Are you breaking up with me?"
"Yes. I am. Finn, we just can't be."
"What the hell, Rach? Is there another guy?" Finn stood up, his face turning red quickly. "Are you cheating on me?"
"For the record, Finn, I never cheated on you! You cheated on me. You had sex with that Cheerio." Rachel kept calm, knowing the last thing she'd want to do is blow up at him.
"No buts, Finn. We're through." Rachel picked up her bag and turned to leave. She turned back. "I hope we can still be friends, Finn. I really do." Turning sharply, she started to walk out. "See you next year, Mr. Schuester."
"Bye Rachel." Will glanced at the brunette.
"This sucks." Finn dropped into a seat. "This really sucks."
LET THE FINN BASHING COMMENCE! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *cough* I'm eating doughnuts. I'm sorry.
