Welcome to Mount Olympus, just recently the gods have decided to train some of their children up here, and you are one of them.

    Its too quiet... but not for long ((Open))

    Post  Carly Stewart on Sun Jan 09, 2011 4:43 pm

    Carly picked up her suitcase and walked up the stairs to her cabin. She wasn't claimed yet, but she wasn't going to let that ruin her mood. She had just come to Mount Olympus. Apparently, her mother had wanted her to come. Carly didn't believe that at all. Her mother never paid any attention to her. Carly didn't even know who her mother was. Of course, Carly wasn't going to hold that against her when she was finally claimed. The demigod went into the cabin where all the unclaimed stay until they can go to their rightful cabin. Surprisingly, Carly was the only one in the cabin. A sick-ish feeling entered her stomach. Am I the only unclaimed demigod? She shook her head. No, of course not. She thought. They're probably out doing their activities or something... Considering that made her feel slightly better. She sat next to an empty bunk and started to unpack her suitcase.

    Carly had almost forgotten about her puppy, Eloise. Eloise is a small Yorkie puppy with big brown eyes. She's the cutest puppy ever, Carly's opinion. Eloise barked happily and Carly set her on the bed. She curled up and fell asleep quickly. That surprised Carly a little. There had been a lot of excitement recently and Carly knew that she would never be able to fall asleep that quickly. Apparently, Eloise had no problem. Carly sighed as she pulled her book out of the suitcase. She would unpack everything else later.

    The half-blood laughed to herself at some of the amazing things that the characters in her book did. They were fantastic! Traveling and adventuring. Carly wanted to be able to do something like that sometime. Travel to someplace amazing and have an adventure that she'd remember for the rest of her life. Carly wanted to keep reading, but her dyslexia was making that extremely difficult. Eloise had woken up and was now barking and running around the cabin. Carly got off her bed and sprinted over to the puppy, who was pulling on someone's sheets.
    "No, no, Eloise. Those aren't yours." Carly said gently. Eloise stayed on the bed where Carly had told her to go. The demigod reached inside her suitcase and pulled out Eloise's small bed. The puppy barked and crawled into it. It was getting late, and both of them were tired.

    Carly was lying on her bed, looking up at the ceiling. She wondered why something unusual hadn't happened yet. Afterall, she was a daughter of a greek goddess, something unusual was probably going to happen, and it could possibly be the start of the adventure that Carly had wanted to go on.

    APHRODITE, Goddess of Beauty and Love
    Aphrodite was sitting on her throne on Mount Olympus. There was nothing for her to do. She watched people pass her throne and watched as some of the other gods joined her in the throne room. She was waiting for the meeting to start. They were discussing the new idea of letting demigods train on Mount Olympus. Aphrodite liked that idea. She'd get to see her children... her children! The goddess sat bolt upright. Then, she got up to speak to Zeus.
    "Father, one of my children has arrived!"
    "Really? Who?"
    "Carly Stewart."
    "Does she know?"
    "No, not yet. We have time before the meeting. May I let her know that she's my daughter?"
    "If you hurry. We only have a few minutes."
    Aphrodite smiled. And with a flash, she was in Carly's cabin. Carly was on her bed, petting a small Yorkie puppy. Aphrodite smiled as she said these words:
    "Carly Stewart, I claim you as my daughter. A daughter of Aphrodite." She waved her hand, and a necklace appeared in Carly's hand. It was shaped like a pink flower. If she touched the middle, it would become a long, rose-colored sword. It would be easy to use, because it was light and easy to handle. The sword could also become a bow-and-arrow or a dagger. Whichever Carly wanted it to be. With another flash, Aphrodite disappeared, just in time for the meeting.

    ((Just a note to other members. If you're a demigod, you DO NOT get to choose your olympian parent. That's also in the rules. Very Happy

    Lys walked to the Hermes cabin, the backpack that held his few clothes slung over his shoulder. Mount Olympus was.. magnificent. It definitely beat the streets of Manhattan, where he'd lived for years before been brought to camp. At Camp Half Blood, he'd found a home. Admittedly, it was the Hermes cabin, which couldn't really be called a home... you left your bed unguarded and turned your back, and the next thing you knew, some other newbie had nicked it. Lucky for him, he was used to sleeping on the floor. In fact, Lys could sleep just about anywhere.

    It was strangely quiet up here. Living in the city, and then at camp, you grew used to noise. But up here was quiet. There weren't even any birds, it was that high up. He saw a few satyrs around, and some nymphys too, doing tasks for the gods. Lys wondered which god up here was his father. He had a few words for him. It wasn't that he resented not been claimed, that didn't bother him. No, what annoyed him was that his father had let his mother be brutally murdered by a Cyclops. The only thing he had of his father's was the ring he wore on his middle finger of his right hand, that turned into a sword. It was a very good sword, strong and perfectly balanced. Whoever made it had spnet some time on it, and had a lot of skill where weapon making was concerned.

    What surprised Lys was that even up here, demigods had cabins. The place was full of grand houses, architecture that would make any human architect think they had died and gone to heaven. And yet, the demigods were packed into cabins, just like back at camp. He hoped that up here, he'd at least manage to get a bed. After all, not a lot of demigods had been chosen to come. He wondered why he had. Was it something to do with the fact that the Fates spoke to him sometimes? It hadn't happened often. The first time was when he was arriving at camp and had been attacked by a minotaur. In fact, he had been killed by it. But the Fates had appeared, when Lys was between worlds and told him he wasn't meant to die yet. They had brought him back to life and called him their champion, for some weird reason. Lys wasn't anythig special, he was just Lys. Just some kid who had a god as a parent, who had lived on the streets for a few years. They hadn't been good years, either. Living on the streets, you had to keep your wits about you. People liked to beat up the homeless, and if it was a kid, it was easy pickings. But Lys had learned to survive, to keep his head down. He had done honest work to get his food too, instead of stealing it, something he hated. Lys wasn't a theif, he knew that.

    Entering the cabin, he got a whiff of perfume. The expensive stuff. It smelt of rich people. Living on the streets had taught him that. And rich people tended to be grateful when you helped them. Some could be very generous and even buy you a meal as well as giving you some money to look after yourself with. There was only one person in the cabin, a girl a few years younger than him. There was a dog as well, that he assumed belonged to her. The girl was quite pretty, he'd admit that. And.. she had some weird sign floating above her head, a dove, from what Lys could make out.

    He walked to the closest bed and dumped his things down. Whoever she was, this girl had obviously just been claimed. And by Aphrodite, if the dove was anything to judge by. That would explain the perfume.

    Opening his backpack, he took out his most prized possession, a book. It was Jason and the Argonauts, one of his favourite Greek myths, that wasn't a myth but had actually happened. It was an inspiration to Lys, and something in it made him long for adventure. He wanted to go out into the world and get new experiences, wanted to defeat monsters and have songs sung about him, like the heroes of old had. And as a demigod, every day was an adventure, really. But he wanted more than just the day to day stuff. He wanted something big, something that would make people remember him. Not as the street kid, but as someone who had done something worth remembering, someone who had achieved something.

    On the streets, Lys had learnt to keep his head down. And he'd carried on with that at camp. He hadn't made many frieds, but it wasn't something he was too bothered about. After all, you never knew who was going to stay around or who was going to turn up mauled by a monster. It had happened a few times while he was at camp. It wasn't something he wanted to see again. That's why he didn't make friends. He didn't want to feel the pain of losing someone close to him again, not like he had with his mother.

    Carly had picked up Eloise and was now petting her. She rolled around happily and started to fall back asleep. Almost destroying sheets probably tired her out. Must've been a lot of hard work. Carly felt bad that the sheets weren't straightened anymore. It wasn't a huge deal, though. It could easily be fixed. Eloise jumped down and started to bark as someone came in. But, they didn't use the door.

    A woman who looked a little like Carly, maybe just a little older, was standing in front of her. She had curly blond hair that went slightly passed her shoulders. She had bright blue eyes and was wearing a long, salmon colored dress. She smiled at Carly, and said
    "Carly Stewart, I claim you as my daughter. A daughter of Aphrodite." So the lady was Aphrodite! Carly was amazed. Then, a flower-shaped pendant appeared in her hand. Carly didn't know its power, but she'd try it out later. Most magic items have the power to transform into different kinds of weapons. Just then, Eloise stopped barking and went back to sleep. Aphrodite disappeared with a flash, and Carly was alone in the cabin again. With Eloise, of course. Carly said one thing to herself, even though Aphrodite had left. Thank you, mom. Carly smiled, she was very happy.

    Then, someone else entered the cabin. He walked over to a bed and started to read a book. Carly went over to say hello, even though she didn't know who he was. Carly was usually very friendly and liked to talk to people.
    "Hi," she said in a cheerful voice. "I'm Carly." She didn't add 'daughter of Aphrodite' because some people might not care. It also would've sounded weird for her to say it, because she'd just been claimed. And, the other demigod might've noticed Aphrodite. Then, she looked down at the book he was reading. Carly had read it before. It was similar to the book that she was reading. "The things these people do in those stories... its just amazing." Carly said, looked up from the book cover. "I'd love to go on a big adventure someday. It wouldn't be too far out of reach either, for a demigod."

    Lys looked up as the girl walked over to him and introduced herself. Her dog seemed to have fallen asleep on the bed, after tiring itself out trying to rip one of the bed covers to pieces, from what Lys could see. It wasn't like anyone would notice. This was the Hermes cabin after all. Once a few more people came, the cabin would look like a bombsite. A small part of him wondered what the gods would think of it if they came in and found the cabin in such a state. This was, after all, Mount Olympus. It looked so.... clean. Not that Lys cared, though. Hopefully, he wouldn't be in here for long. Hopefully, he'd get claimed and be able to go out questing soon. A quest was the thing he wanted more than anything. To go out and have a real adveture. Be just like any of the characters in the book he was reading at the moment. Although he doubted he'd be much like Jason.. he had too much god blood in him. Jason was, after all, just a regular mortal. Well, more than regular, judging by what he did in the book. And if he was the Fates' champion, what better way than to prove himself on the quest? He'd heard that some demigods had a god that was their patron, but he hadn't heard of any that had had the Fates as one... or three.

    "Hiya Carly. I'm Lysander.. But please, call me Lys." One thing Lys had picked up in life before he ended up living on the streets was manners. And he'd kept them. They were important, or at least, they were to him. Carly looked at the book and spoke about how amazing it must be to go adveturing like that, as if she could read Lys's thoughts. Aphrodite kids couldn't do that, could they? He didn't really know much about their powers. Just that they looked good, could tell your emotions and make you fall in love, and some could charmspeak. He didn't think mind reading came into it. He didn't think any god or demigod could. He hoped not, because his mind was the one place where he could say or think what he wanted. "Yeah, they are... And I'd love to go on an adventure too. Could you imagine going on a quest? I mean, yeah, it would be dangerous... but that's just a part of it. Just the experience.. it's something you'd never forget, and to be able to go anywhere like they did... it would just be awesome."

    He was glad Carly hadn't added on her parentage at the end. It wasn't that it bothered Lys, it just showed that she cared enough not to just in case it did. He thought it was quite obvious that he was unclaimed and not a Hermes kid, because he didn't look anything like one. He didn't have those elfish ears, or the look on his face that said that he was going to steal anything he could get his hands on. He wasn't much of a prankster or trouble maker. He liked to keep quiet and keep to himself. He had done that at camp too. And he hadn't bragged about the Fates talking to him, or told anyone. Not even Chiron knew, and he doubted any of the gods did. After all, the Fates ruled them too. It was a scary prospect, having them watch over him. He wondered what they had planned for him, because the Fates controlled the lives of everyone, didn't they?

    The other demigod introduced himself as Lysander, but asked to be called Lys.
    "Nice to meet you," Carly said. She smiled when he said that he thought it would be amazing to go on adventures too. She was glad that it was something that other demigods were interested in as well. Then, Lys mentioned a quest. Carly had heard about some demigod quests that had happened fairly recently. A few years ago, Percy Jackson had recovered Zeus's lightning bolt, the most powerful weapon ever made. It was still fantastic in Carly's mind, and probably to a lot of other people too. A quest... it would be great to go on a quest. There had to be some kind of quest that a few demigods could go on. Maybe even to find some demigods and bring them to Camp Half-Blood... or Mount Olympus.

    The Hermes cabin seemed like it was pretty crowded most of the time. There must be quite a few unclaimed or Hermes kids. It had occured to Carly that she'd need to move into the Aphrodite cabin soon, but she would worry about that later. Carly didn't ask if Lys was claimed. It was a bit obvious that he was either unclaimed or a Hermes kid. Why else would he be in the Hermes cabin? But, he could be visiting a friend here, or waiting for someone to return to the cabin. The daughter of Aphrodite looked around a bit more. She started to notice the colors of everything inside the cabin. She heard sounds from outside and saw some light trail in from the windows. Probably from street lights, or torches. Whatever lit the Mount Olympus streets when it was getting dark.
    "So..." Carly said after her ADHD had stopped making her space out. "Are you new here?"

    ((Sorry it's really short. XD))

    "New here on Mount Olympus, yes. As you can probably tell, I just got here... Manhattan traffic is horrible. And I got chased by a Laistrygonian... had to cut it down before it burst into the Empire State Buildig." Lys said, as if it was nothing. To someone who had been fighting off monsters for years, it really was nothing. Lys didn't take any joy in killing monsters though. He wasn't a violent person by nature, and fought only when he really had to. Or if he was too angry to run away. Some monsters got on his nerves, and he had a special spot reserved to hold his dislike for Cyclopes after what they did to his mom. "But I've been at Camp Half Blood for a couple of months. I don't know why I was chosen to come up here. It's not like I'm special or anything. Just as special as any other unclaimed demigod, really."

    Lys wondered if the demigods had been brought up here to be inspected to see if they were ready for a quest, or at least if they were quest worthy. He'd like to think it was for that reason. He was ready for a quest, he knew that. He could fight if he needed to, and living on the streets had given him the gift of quick thinking. But there was probably more to the quest than that. And Lys wondered what the quest would be for. Would it be something really big, something important? And what about the quest prophecy? Instead of the Oracle, would it be Apollo?

    Lys had heard about Percy's quests, and was slightly jealous. Not of the glory he'd had, that didn't matter much to Lys. No, it was that he basically got to quest five years in a row. Lys had been in Manhattan when the war happened. He'd had to kill a few monsters, but had mostly gone unnoticed. Which was lucky for him, because he hadn't had any armor, and he only had his sword. He knew for a fact that if he'd got into the thick of things, he'd have been killed. And, to be honest, Lys didn't want to die any time soon. And that was if the Fates wanted him to. He had a feeling they had something planned for him, though he had no idea what. Up til then, they'd probably keep him alive.

    "What about you, Carly? How long have you been here? It must have been long enough to get claimed, cos I saw Aphrodite's sign above your head when I walked in."

    Carly nodded as Lys told her about how long he'd been here, but looked at the floor when he returned the question. Carly felt a little bad that Lys had just come and he was unclaimed, most likely. Afterall, Carly had just walked in the cabin when she was claimed. It didn't seem fair that the gods didn't claim him as well. But who knows?
    "I actually just got here as well." Carly said, still studying the floor. "And yeah, Aphrodite. It's a bit of a surpise to me. I wasn't expecting that." She wondered if the gods claimed their children more when they got to Mount Olympus. They'd be closer to their children, that's for sure. Carly wondered if she'd ever be able to meet her mother... probably not. The love goddess probably had better things to do.

    Carly thought that being at Camp Half-Blood was very different from Mount Olympus so far. They were closer to the gods, so it felt a little safer. Although, in a way, it could be more dangerous. Sometimes being farther away from the gods was a good thing. Carly would try her best not to get on their nerves. The daughter of Aphrodite had heard about how Percy Jackson had gotten on Ares's bad side a few years ago. Carly didn't want an immortal enemy. She didn't know of anyone who would, either.

    Carly wondered why the gods hadn't invited all the demigods to Mount Olympus. Or maybe they did, but they hadn't arrived yet. Or, they were all claimed by someone other than Hermes or just weren't in the cabin. Thinking about claimings again, Carly wondered what powers she had now as a daughter of Aphrodite. She'd heard of this one girl at Camp Half-Blood who was also a daughter of Aphrodite. She even got to go on a quest. And, she had the ability to charmspeak, something that not all Aphrodite kids can do. Carly would have to test it out sometime.

    "I wonder if there will be a quest..." Carly said, looking back up at Lys. "And I wonder how they choose which demigods go on it... do you know?"

    "You just got here too? Wow, that's a fast claiming... then again, I guess they will be here, cos we're closer to the gods..." Lys said, putting his book down. It could wait til later. He put it back in his backpack, because he was in the Hermes cabin, after all. If he left it lying around, it wouldn't be there for long. "To be honest, I don't think most people expect to get claimed by the god that's their parent... I mean, it's always a surprise, isn't it?"

    Coming up to the cabin, Lys had noticed some similarities to camp. They had a beach here, that looked a lot better than the one at camp. The sand was white, and the water was a deep, clear blue and looked warm. There were fields too, but there was all sorts growing in them, not just strawberries like the fields back at camp. He'd noticed some stales as well, which is probably where pegasi were kept. And they had some woods here. Lys bet that it had a magical barrier around it to stop monsters getting out. After all, the gods wouldn't want monsters coming out and attacking Olympus, not when they'd just finished sorting it out from the mess it had been before, when the war had finished. Maybe he'd go explore later. It would definitely be fun.

    Carly then asked him if he knew how they chose people for the quest. He shrugged his shoulders.

    "To be honest, I don't have a clue. I think they choose who they think is the most able to go on it, who had the highest chance of success. Probably why Percy got a lot of quests, because he was really powerful, been a son of Poseidon. Well, that and the prophecy..." Lys wondered as well how they chose. That had been a guess, it could have been wrong. Who knew how the gods and quests worked? They were mysterious things, both of them. Like how the gods could be in a lot of places at once. Lys couldn't imagine how that must be. To him, it just seemed.. freaky. Looking around, he noticed it was still just Carly and himself. It really was quiet up here. "You know, I think we might have been the first to arrive... If we weren't, I don't think it would be this quiet."

    ARES, God of War

    The war god, Ares, looked up from his magazine. Things were way too quiet on Mount Olympus. There had to be something wrong. Ares didn't like it when things were too peaceful. He got off his blood-red throne and looked down at the cabins area. He smiled in an evil-like way. One of his children had arrived! He was in the Hermes cabin.
    "Better get down there," Ares said, slipping away in a flash.

    In an instant, he was standing in the Hermes cabin. Two half-bloods were talking. They were discussing quests and adventures and things like that. It seemed like all half-bloods were interested in them, Ares's opinion. Enough stalling, he needed to claim his son.
    "Lysander Davis, I claim you as my son. This item could be very useful..." he handed his son a blood-red keychain. It was a silhouette of a boar, Ares's symbol. "It will help you in battle," Ares added before flashing back to the throne room. The keychain could turn into a strong dagger. To turn it into a dagger, Lysander would have to touch the back of it. Ares hoped that his son knew the way to the Ares cabin.


    ((I know this is really short, especially for a claiming post, but congratulations, Lysander! Very Happy ))

    Carly nodded in agreement when Lys said that her claiming was fast. Carly hadn't expected to be claimed so quickly. Were all claimings this fast? Or... at least some of them? Apparently it was possible. Carly looked up as Eloise started to move around. The little blue tag on her lavender collar was jingling. Being ADHD, it got Carly's attention. Eloise flicked her short tail and returned to sleeping. When Lys said that he didn't know how people got picked for quests, Carly had to agree with that too. If there was a problem that could be solved with demigods' help, they half-bloods on Mount Olympus would probably be notifyed, maybe even by the gods themselves. That would be exciting. Speaking of the gods... one of them appeared in the cabin and stood in front of Carly and Lys. Carly covered her mouth with her hands in shock.

    Carly couldn't tell who it was at first, but then she realized that it was probably Ares, the god of war. She studied him for a second. He had on blood-red armor and looked very warlike. Yep, it was Ares.
    "Lysander Davis, I claim you as my son. This item could be very useful..." Ares said in a very relaxed voice. He handed Lys a keychain and flashed out of the room. Carly smiled, though she didn't quite see how the war god fit Lys. Then again, Carly didn't know him too well, and it was possbile.
    "Congratulations! That was a pretty fast claiming as well." Carly said. Two claimings in the same room within a few minutes of each other. Maybe when Aphrodite returned to the throne room, she told Ares that a son of his was there. Or, now that they were on Olympus, the gods noticed there children more since they were closer.

    Lys looked up as a god appeared in the cabin. He wore a leather jacket over blood red armour and shades, and he looked like he had seen thousands of battles. Lys knew in an instant who it was. Ares, god of war. The only god that he wasn't too keen on.... and now Lys found out why. A boar's head appeared above him and Ares, his dad, handed him a keychain with a boar's head on it. Ares said it would help him in battle, and then disappeared.

    "HEY! Get back here!" Lys shouted after the god, knowing it was too late for Ares to hear him. He clenched his fists hard, keeping calm. He was on Olympus. He could go see his dad any time he wanted. And he would do. He wanted to know why Ares had let his mother be murdered. He was a god, he could have at least tried to save her! "Damn you, Ares.... damn you." He muttered.

    Looking down at the keychain, Lys wondered how it worked. It was obviously a weapon or something, because Ares had said it would help him in battle. He moved it round in his hands, pushing it in places. As he pressed the back of the boar's head, a dagger appeared in his hand. He had to admit, it looked pretty cool, and looked really strong too. It was a decent gift, but nothing could make up for the loss of his mother. Lys looked over at Carly.

    "Wow... Ares."
    He said. "That was totally unexpected...."

    Even though he was angry at Ares, Lys was happy that he had been claimed. At least he knew who his father was. He broke the stereotype of Ares kids been stupid, mean bullies. Lys wasn't a genius, but he wasn't dumb either, he couldn't stand bullies, and mean was really the opposite of him. The other Ares kids might not like it but... Oh, wait. So far, he was the only Ares kid here. Which meant he was cabin leader. Lys let a smile creep across his face at the thought. That would be fun, keeping his siblings in line. Or at least, attempting to.

    Carly noticed that right before Ares left, Lys was angry. Carly could feel it... she didn't know why. Probably an Aphrodite thing. Lys was still pretty happy about being claimed, though it was a surprise to him. Carly nodded when Lys said that he wasn't expecting that.
    "I don't think any of us have a clue who our parent is until we're claimed. Unless you start experiencing your powers before you're claimed, somehow..." Carly thought about that for a little while. Was it possible that you could use powers before being claimed? The daughter of Aphrodite had heard that Percy Jackson had splashed a girl in a fountain, apparently by accident. Carly remembered from the story that he was really angry at her, then, next thing they knew, she was soaking wet. So it was supposedly possible. Carly wondered why Lys had gotten so angry before Ares left... she wanted to ask, but decided not to. It wasn't any of her business. Everything was quiet in the Hermes cabin again. There really wasn't any reason for anyone to be in here now. Carly needed to move into the Aphrodite cabin and Lys needed to move into the Ares cabin.

    "I guess there's no reason for anyone else to be in this cabin..." Carly said, shifting a little. She'd been sitting still for a long time, and really couldn't take it anymore. She walked over to her bed and picked up Eloise. "Sorry about this, girl, but we're moving again." She said to the Yorkie. She went back over to Lys, still holding Eloise. "Oh, this is Eloise, by the way." She pet the puppy's fur. "Guess we should move into our rightful cabins now, right?"

    ((Haha, no problem! And I'd figured that out. XD))

    "Yeah, maybe. But I bet that's really rare." Lys said, wondering what his powers were. Ares was the god of war, so Lys would probably be awesome with any weapon and fighting in general. That could come in handy against any monsters, or if he did get sent on a quest. He saw that Carly noticed his anger, but she didn't ask what was wrong. Lys respected her for that, especially as he wasn't really ready to tell anyone about what had happened yet. The furthest back he was happy about telling his past to people was living on the streets. He didn't like to say why, or talk about his mum. He would only tell his closest friends that. And while Lys regarded Carly as a friend, they didn't really know each other that well. Maybe he'd tell her once he got to know her better.

    Carly then said that now they were both claimed, there wasn't really any reason to stay in the Hermes cabin anymore, before picking up her dog, who she introduced to Lys as Eloise. He stroked the yorkie puppy. Lys loved dogs. Well, the ones that weren't crazy and tried to attack you. A stray had decided to stay with him for a couple of weeks back when he was on the streets, before he got caught and took to the kennels. Lys hoped that he had a home now. It was a sad thing to see a dog living on the streets, obviously abandoned by the family who should love it.

    "Yeah, I guess we should move to our cabins..."
    Lys said. He grabbed his backpack and walked out the Hermes cabin, holding the door open for Carly. Looking around at the cabins on the same side as the Hermes one, he spotted the Ares one. Like back in camp, it was bright red. But it didn't have the barbed wire or boar's head above the door. There was a banner on top of the cabin, waving like a flag, that had a boar's head on it. It was definitely more tasteful than the cabin back at Camp Half Blood. He guessed up here on Olympus, everything had to be kept looking nice.

    ((I'll reply in a little while, but are we going to continue this when they go to their cabins, or is this thread ending here?))

    Carly stood up and brushed down the ruffles of her shirt. She packed up Eloise's dog bed, which was all that she'd unpacked. That was a good thing; she wasn't here very long. Eloise followed Carly as she started to walk out the door. Lys had held the door open for her. Carly smiled.
    "Thanks," She said, leaving the cabin. Lys was different than Carly expected Ares kids to be. She'd heard that they weren't too nice... though some of them probably were. Carly knew all the stereotypes about the Aphrodite kids. Most only cared about their appearance. But not Carly. She cared about other things as well. Thinking about that made her wonder if she already had siblings in her cabin. Maybe 2 or 3, but it didn't seem to busy here.

    Carly spotted the Aphrodite cabin and started towards it. With Eloise close behind, Carly had a feeling that she was going to like it here.

    ((Sorry this is so short. There's not much left to work with in this thread...))

    ((Yeah, you're right... Maybe we could make a new one set later in the day, like in the mess hall or something. Unless you want to go to the woods and do some hunting?))

    Lys looked around as both Carly and himself walked out of the Hermes cabin. It was still quiet here... he hoped more people would come soon, otherwise it would get boring up here. It was great been on Olympus and near the gods and everything, but without any other half bloods around, doing demigod things, it would be a bit boring.

    "No prob."
    Lys said, as Carly thanked him. "Hey.. wanna go hunting or something later? The woods up here look awesome. I mean, if we don't come across any monsters, it would always be fun to explore." As he talked, Lys's stomach let out a growl in protest. "On second thoughts, I think I'll unpack my stuff then go for something to eat. I'm a bit peckish.... Well, see you later, Carly."

    And with that, Lys turned and walked to his cabin, ready to unpack his things and begin a new life up on Olympus as the son of the war god. Lys knew he'd be surprised about that for a long time. He wasn't very warlike... but heck, just because he was the son of Ares didn't mean he had to be like him, right? Sure, he would probably be good at fighting, but he wouldn't go out purposely looking for a fight. Well, unless he was hunting, but that was the whole point of it.

    Carly turned around when Lys said something else.
    "Sure, we can maybe go hunting." Carly said, thinking for a second. "We should go to our cabins and get settled in for a while." Then, Lys said almost the same thing. "See ya," Carly said. Eloise followed her into the brightly colored Aphrodite cabin. It smelled like perfume, even though there was only about 2 other people in there. Both were asleep and Carly didn't want to disturb them.

    Somehow, Carly felt right at home. It must've been the fact that she was finally home. She was going to like it here.

    ((OK, sorry this is really short. LOCKED!))
