Hello! Ok guys, this is an idea I got while in my Language Arts Literacy class, we are studying Greek mythology (YAY!) and right now we are reading a book about the wanderings of Odysseus. One of the homework questions was: "Why do Cyclops not worship Zeus the All-Father?" My teacher and classmates were saying pretty funny stuff to insult the gods and mostly random stuff but it is funny once the Olympians see what mortals think of them in my grade! Please read and review! Maybe a one shot or two shot. Could be a story with one-shots if this one gets at least 5 reviews on the first chapter!

On Olympus: 3rd POV
The king of the gods was bored than usual on the Winter Solstice (Pretend its winter and not fall). Hera was on a roll about how important family is. Artemis and Aphrodite were talking about how love was useless/ important. Athena and Poseidon were again fighting about who was supposed to win Athens. Hermes and Apollo were whispering to each other as Dionysus and Hestia looked at them suspiciously. Ares and Hephaestus were arguing about Aphrodite. Demeter and Hades were bickering about Persephone and once again in a millennia, cereal. So now you know why Zeus was bored and rather be with his father.
"ENOUGH! Each year you always argue about the same things! STOP IT and do something that is actually USEFUL!" that shut them up.
"Father is right. Each year we are wasting time." Athena spoke up.
"SO what do we do?" asked Hermes.
"Anything but this," Muttered Zeus.
"We should prank people!" yelled Apollo and Hermes.
"No make people fall in love!"
"Love is for losers! We should turn men into jack lopes!" (Did I spell that right?)
"NO! We should cause a WAR!"
"NO! We need to eat our cereal!"
"Enough with your cereal!"
"We could drink wine…."
"We should all talk about PERFECT FAMILIES!"
"NO! You threw me off a mountain!"
"We should act like a family and not fight!"
"SHUT UP!" Poseidon yelled enough to shut everyone up. He then motioned to Zeus.
"Poseidon is right. You should all shut up and not waste time-"
"Father! That was my idea!" whined Athena as Poseidon smirked.
"ANY WHO! We will not prank people, cause love, turn men into animals, cause war, talk about how family is important, eat cereal, or drink WINE!" each god/ goddess blushed and looked away.
"The more we argue, the less time we could get before we fade." spoke Hera up.
"Yes. We could check on how much mortals look up to us."
"Athena, that is brilliant! Hermes, check a classroom where the kids are learning about us."
"Yes." Hermes flashed out and came back with a spray gun and was holding Apollo by the ear.
"HEY!" Hermes rolled his eyes before Athena said,
"You're a god. You could have simply asked Poseidon to create a rainbow along with Apollo."
"I knew that!" Hermes blushed as everyone else chuckled and quickly sat down as Apollo followed.
"Anyways, the classroom is room 888 (fake) and the school is Lincoln School in New Jersey (I have no idea if that's true b/c I don't even live there)." Hermes told Athena. She nodded as a rainbow appeared.
The classroom was not too big or small. The wall's were surrounded with tips on writing and educational posters such as 'warning: Due dates are closer than they appear' (my homeroom is this class and we actually have this poster! :D). The teacher's desk was in front of the windows and the students desks and two tables (where kids were sitting at) were facing the teacher. One chalkboard was on the left and a whiteboard on the right. A projector was set up. The counter on the back were filled with cut ins of shields (we are doing Greek shields!). The Olympians gasped because one of the kids was the one who almost found out their secret, Cindy Lopez. (Fake but its "me".)
"Alright class, next question of the homework assignment is: "Why do Cyclops not worship Zeus the All-Father?" About 8 kids raised their hands.
"I have a son named Kyle."
"He could be yours, Apollo."
"No Demeter, his eyes are not blue or bright enough."
"Because their father is Poseidon and they think that they're more powerful than Zeus and the others."
"WHAT? That is a lie!" screamed Poseidon.
"I always knew you were jealous of me!" Zeus smirked.
"Correct. And also, Zeus and Poseidon have about the same rank of power so they were not afraid because Poseidon would be there to protect them." Ms. Santos said.
"That is true. I protect my children."
"Except for Matthew,"
"THAT was an accident! I never knew he would use my Trident!"
"Right," Athena replied as she rolled her eyes.
"But I thought Zeus was more powerful!" exclaimed a girl named Danielle.
"HA! Someone says that I'm better than you!" Zeus got up and started jumping around with excitement. What he didn't know was that a secret two trouble making goddess' were recording everything.
"Yes, but remember they live forever so their powers are about the same."
"HA! We are even!"
"Men," Artemis muttered.
"That must be boring." Hayley muttered.
"Yes. That's why in the movie Troy, Achilles said that the gods envy mortals because they die and have a true reason to live. Remember?"
Everyone nodded, but not Cindy.
"It's not boring!"
"Apollo, shut up."
"Yes lil sis."
"I'm not your LIL SIS!"
"After all, would you not get bored of living forever and forever?" asked Ms. Santos.
"No. But it might be… Nah," Hermes said.
"Too boring," Kyle said.
"That's because you 'enjoy' yourself."
"We've been through this, Hera!"
"I'd buy pizza." Said Susan as some people laughed and nodded.
"You could make it appear."
"Oh." Apollo blushed.
Ms. Santos rolled her eyes before saying,
"So yeah, when Achilles said that he said that that's why they meddle in with humans."Then she got up and did an imitation of a god.
"I'm bored so let's go mess a human lives up!" Everyone laughed.
The Olympians were mad but had to admit that it did look funny.
"So was the Cyclops immortal?" Janet asked.
"OF COURSE NOT!"
"Nope, Polythemus only got 'poked'."
"That's a funny way to put it." Athena said.
"Wait. What are they talking about?"Dionysus asked before yawning.
"So monsters are not immortal?"
"No and I have to show you a clip for what we read so far."
"I think I would still buy pizza if I was immortal." Susan muttered.
"That's it." Hermes told Zeus before laughing.
"What is so funny?" asked Zeus.
"Well, it turns out that after the whole thing, you are still jumping around with your lightning bolt and PJ'S!"Hera yelled. Everyone was laughing as Zeus turned a dark shade of red.
"This would make a great video on YouTube."
"Nemesis? Eris?" asked Athena.
"Yep. We thought we would mess around and so far we have." Eris said, goddess of discord (trouble).
"What do you mean?" asked a pale Hermes. The last time they paired up, they recorded the gods each singing in the shower.
"Well, we knew about the class, so we thought to record you guys." Nemesis said goddess of revenge.
"So, this video is going on God Tube and YouTube!"With those last words, the two goddesses disappeared.
"We Are Doomed."
"No duh Apollo."
"SO who wants pizza?" asked Ares.
A/N: Not sure if it was good or not but it was a random idea. Plz review and maybe I'll make it a story about the gods and what they do throughout the PJO series. Also this is before Thalia was born. Please review. Ideas and flames are appreciated.
