I do not own Percy Jackson and the Olympians or Heroes of Olympus

Percy POV

Waves. That was the first thing I heard when I woke up from my fall. I honestly did not want to open my eyes in case something bad was waiting for me, so instead I used my other senses. Like I mentioned earlier, I could hear waves, but also seagulls and the rustle of some sort of plant. When I moved my hands around and grabbed, I realized that what I had grabbed was sand. The last test (because I was not going to taste something) was that I took a sniff of the air and it was my favorite smell: the sea, probably because it was my father's domain.

I took another deep breath. It was now or never, I had to open my eyes sometime. When I did I realized that I wasn't alone. That Nico and Thalia had been plucked up and dropped here as well. That's good, because Poseidon knows I would be useless on my own.

Thalia woke up first with a loud groan, she sort of sounded like a whale that I had made friends with one time…but that's a story for another time. Anyways Thalia groaned and then must have realized what happened because suddenly she jumped up until she saw me.

"Percy!?" Wow, she actually called me by my name, she must be really serious. "What happened?"

"I honestly have no idea, the last thing I remember was sitting on the dock when suddenly a bright, white light appears in front of me and drops me on this beach," I thought for a moment. "I probably would have been knocked out longer if it weren't for the Achilles Curse." (A/N: Percy still has the curse despite it being post-HoO)

She just nodded and we waited for Nico to wake up. There wasn't much to say anyways until Death Breath woke up.

Nico woke up five minutes later, we knew because whenever he's about to wake up he scrunches into a tiny, little ball. I wouldn't admit it out loud, but I thought it was adorable.

"Nico, Neeks, come on kid, wake up!" I said.

"I will burn all your Mythomagic cards if you do not get up," Thalia threatened. That seemed to do the trick because Nico was up in a flash.

"You wouldn't!" Nico glared at the daughter of Zeus.

"Wasn't aware how protective you were of those cards and figurines anymore Nico. I thought you didn't play," I said.

"Sentimental value," Nico stated simply and his two cousins knew what he meant: Bianca.

"Right, so what's the plan?" Thalia asked rubbing her hands together and looked at Percy along with Nico.

"Why are you looking at me? Aren't you two the lead supporters who say that my plans suck?" I grumbled.

"Yes, but this shouldn't be too hard," Nico said.

I looked between my cousins, "Fine, I think we should find the nearest town to see where we are."

"Excellent!" Nico and Thalia said at the same time and then said "Jinx! Double Jinx! Triple Jinx! Quad-"

"Okay, enough!" I declared, getting annoyed and then took a deep breath. "Let's just go over those dunes, we'll probably find a pathway or something."

I took in more of my surroundings. We weren't on a typical "warm beach" so that meant we were probably farther up north than south, which was still far away from Camp Half-Blood.

When we got to the top of the dune, we did indeed see a small town, but there weren't any paths that lead to it, weird because usually all beaches had pathways. "I thought you said there would be a pathway Kelp Brain."

I rolled my eyes, "Usually there are trails from the beach to the nearest town or at least to the parking lots, but that doesn't seem to be the case."

"Obviously," Thalia said, rolling her eyes as we continued towards the town talking about trivial matters.

"So what were you guys doing before you were picked up and literally dropped here?" I asked my cousins.

Nico snorted and we turned to him, "Persephone was just about to turn me into a flower… again."

"Well it's good that you got away then," Thalia said with me nodding along. "I don't know what I'd do if my step-mother turned me into a flower."

"Hera probably wouldn't turn you into a flower, she'd turn you into a cow," I said with slight humor.

They both glared at me, "And what about you?"

"I barely know my step-mother, but if she were to punish me, she'd turn me into a dolphin, which I'm totally cool with because dolphins are fun," I smiled at them, while the groaned.

"Whatever Kelp Brains," They said at the same time.

"Well I was just about to kill the Minotaur with my fellow Hunters," she scrunched her eyebrows. "I hope they're okay."

"They'll be fine, they're Hunters," I told my cousin casually.

"What's that supposed to mean, Perseus?" Thalia asked with a slight glare.

"No offense meant cousin, I just remember how you guys fought at the Battle of Manhattan and how you whoop Camp Half-Blood's butt every time at Capture the Flag, I'm sure they'll kill it with no problem," I reassure her.

She sagged in relief, "You're probably right."

"When am I ever wrong?" I asked with faux confidence.

"Give me a year," Nico said. "I'll give you a list," then my two cousins burst into laughter.

We finally reached the local town when we realized that everyone was wearing outfits out of time, "Do either of you know what's happening?"

Nico looked terrified for a moment and told them in a hushed whisper, "They are dressed in clothes from the 1940s."

Thalia and my eyes went wide, "We need to verify this, let's find a newspaper or something, hopefully without being seen."

"Why without being seen?" Thalia asked.

"Have you seen what we're wearing?" Both of my cousins looked down at their 21st century clothing. "Yeah, we don't look like we belong in this decade."

My cousins nodded before Nico pointed to something on the ground, "Look there's a newspaper!" We rushed over and read over Nico's shoulder, "British and American's bomb the German city of Dresden!" Dated February 16th, 1945 from the Folkestone Press. My cousins and I looked at each other with wide eyes.

Thalia took a deep breath, "Okay so what are we going to do now? We're stuck over 60 years in the past!"

"I have absolutely no clue," I say miserably. "Usually I would say that we should talk to the gods, but we zoned out when Annabeth was telling us where Olympus was during this time period and but I do remember her saying that the mostly stayed out of the war."

I knew that the scared looks on my cousin's faces were reflected onto mine.

Suddenly Nico hit us and pointed to across the road. Thalia and I saw what was coming closer towards us was none other than a satyr.

I'm currently working on other stories and just decided to upload this story that I had written a while ago.
