Hey! So this is my very first fan fiction! It is a crossover between Percy Jackson and Wings of Fire. I'm probably not going to try and incorporate all the dragon tribes into the story, because that'll be so-o hard. If you have any ideas on how might be able to do that though, I would be more than happy to hear them.Anyway, this story does not have Percy or any of his friends in it, so I'm thinking it took place awhile after they all are gone. The main character is Glory, because she is my favorite, and I hope you all enjoy! Constructive criticism is appreciated. Happy reading! :D
It all began in the most cliche place possible: School. It started when our class was on a trip to the Statue Of Liberty. I'm not really sure why: We've all been there before. If you live in New York, you've been to the Statue Of Liberty at least once. But none the less, here we were. My homeroom teacher was droning on about it's historical value, or whatever, while most of the kids were basically ignoring her and goofing off and we rode the elevator to the lunch area.
"Hey Glory." I turned around to look at Sunny, my best friend. She's holding two raspberry lemonades, and offered me one.
Sunny has been my best friend for forever. We're in the same orphanage together, and the only reason I've survived life so far is because of her. Of course, I'd never admit it, but she's the one bright spot in my life. Her, and guavas.
Sunny is short, with golden-blonde, shoulder length hair, and greyish green eyes. She's super sweet and nice, and if I'm being honest with myself, just a wee bit ditsy and a bit of an airhead. But she's also smarter than I give her credit for.
"Thanks." I said, accepting the lemonade and taking a long swig. It's really good, and I make a note to find the recipe if I can.
We sat down at a table to finish our drinks, and Sunny shared the great boardwalk fries she found. I slathered mine with ketchup, while she just ate them plain.
I felt something hit me in the back of the head, and heard a peel of loud giggles from behind. Sighing, I felt at my head, only to find my hair with streaks of mustard in it.
I whipped around to glare at the culprit. Ashley Parker and her gang. I feel heat rising to my cheeks as I see their innocent faces smiling back at me. I refuse to let my anger show. Instead, I take a napkin from the table and wipe the mustard out.
"They are such jerks." Sunny muttered, glaring at the table. I smiled at her. It takes a lot to get Sunny angry, and it feels good to know she cares about me.
"Do you see any mustard left?" I asked, turning my head to show her.
"Nope. 'Sides even if there was mustard it'd blend in."
She's right. My hair is long, nearly going to my hips, with choppy bangs and choppy edges. It's also red, blue, green, yellow, purple, pink, and basically every color under the rainbow dyed in streaks.
"Point taken." I agreed, "But it's not on my shirt right?" Today I was wearing jeans and combat boots, which was normal, but I was also wearing my favorite dark blue tank top. And if Ashley had gotten mustard on it, no amount of self control would stop me from ripping her to shreds.
"It's fine." Sunny assured me. I signed quietly in relief.
With all that drama out of the way, I looked around at all the vendors, hoping for something cheap. As delicious as the lemonade and fries had been, I needed some more food.
Quickly spotting a fruit vendor, I stood up to go search for a guava.
"Be right back." I told Sunny, and walked to the booth, sticking my middle finger up at Ashley as I walked by.
"Hello?" I asked, tapping the counter. The fruit vendor looked up, her orange eyes narrowing. I feel a lurch in my gut, and my heart skipped a beat.
"Hi sweetie." she croons, a huge smile plastered on her face. I swallowed nervously, thoroughly creeped out by this woman.
"Uhh.. Hi." I choked out. "I'd like this, please." I picked up a guava. Her smile got wider, if it's even possible.
"I'm sorry. This fruit is over ripe. Please come with me, and I'll get you a new one."
I shifted from foot to foot. "It's just a guava. Do you really need me there?"
"But of course! It's our policy to let our customers pick out the fruit they buy. Scientists say that by picking out their own fruit, it makes the fruit seem better."
I shifted away nervously, not believing a word she says.
"You know what? I'm not hungry. Sorry for wasting your time." I said, turning to go, only to to feel her hand snatch my wrist in a viselike grip.
"You're coming with me." she hissed. I took a deep breath, then twisted my arm out of her grip and slammed the heel of my hand into her nose. Then I screamed.
"Glory." Dune, my teacher, was by my side in an instant. "What's wrong?" Then he saw what I saw.
The fruit vendor was transforming. She became almost transparent, made out of swirling winds. Dune reached into her pocket and pulled out a small device.
"So you finally decided to show yourself, huh?" he asked, clicking a button on the side. Flames spewed out of it, and I jumped away. He lunged at the creature, swiping his fiery-thingy at her.
I looked around frantically. Students are running away screaming, and I needed help. Dune only has one leg, and he's not that fast. I turn to look at how the fights going. The numbers have multiplied, now with five more. I'm about to face defeat and go to help Dune anyway when I see the answer to my problems.
Kestrel. She has short, spiky red hair and a temper just as firey. Shes a complete and total jerk who works at my orphanage's school. She teaches PE, but instead of normal sports, she makes us do wrestling and stuff. And no matter how hard I try, she still hates me.
But I'm out of options. And Kestrel is already running towards me, Sunny on her heels. I cringed, wishing Sunny would stay out of this.
But now I can't stand here forever, and I remember Dune. He's still alive, but bleeding badly. The only reason he hasn't been killed yet is his fire device. I'm about to jump in to help when Kestrel stops me.
"Sorry to burst your bubble kid, but replacement or not, we need you for the prophecy to be complete. So just stand to the side and let your minders take care of this, okay?" Then she lunges into the battle. I stand there, confused and shocked. Kestrel is lashing out with some serious kung fu stuff, while the monsters press on from all sides.
Then one of the monsters saw me and Sunny.
And thats when things went wrong.
She cackled with evil glee, and lunged at us, screeching, "There's the prophecy pets!"
Instinctively, I dodged to the side, kicking fiercely at her when she reached for Sunny.
"Glory!" Dune cried as the monster whipped around to face me. His distractment allowed his guard to slip, and one of that monsters slashed her claws across his throat.
"Dune!" Sunny cried, running to help him. I snatched his fire device from the ground where it had skidded across to me. Clicking the button, I stabbed at the monster nearest to Sunny, disintegrating her to smoke. Another took her place, and was about to leap on me when-
The monster looked down, confused at the sword that had just appeared in her chest. Then she dissolved into smoke. Turning, I saw another one of my teachers, Webs, remove his sword and swing it around to meet another monster. I saw them fall until there was only one left. I saw her snatch up Kestrel and crash through a window. I heard Webs telling me everything would be okay.
And then I heard nothing, and saw only darkness.
Phew! It's Done! As you can see, I'm following the basic Percy Jackson storyline for now. Don't worry, I can assure you that I'm not going to have everything the same with different names. In the meantime, post your thoughts! Even if you don't have any thoughts, just say if you liked it! :)
