    Summary

    Kissing him feels like a drug, intoxicating and smoky and oh-so-addicting. Like you've got a deadly disease and his lips are the only possible cure.

    Summary

    Not all individuals who encounter trauma will manifest; likewise, not all who manifest have faced trauma. In spite of this, there is a startling correlation. This paper will examine several case studies and seek to understand how we may more closely study this phenomenon.

    Adam can’t breathe.

    It’s worse - worse than what, he doesn’t know anymore, because his brain is mush and his head is spinning and his memories refuse to contextualize - hospital, bathtub, locker room, sticky sharp pain, bandages that itch, scars like moonlight - but he knows it’s worse. The world has closed in on him.
    ----
    A canon divergent AU where Adam Hayes manifests as an atypical during Safe House that explores his journey as he struggles to control his new ability, contend with his family’s shady history with the atypical community, and communicate with the people he loves. Framed with snippets from an academic paper about atypical manifestation that explores how trauma can be a trigger for many atypical abilities.

    Summary

    “Meg,” Apollo says, instead of doing something undignified like dissolving into a puddle of tears on the floor, and then he says it again for emphasis. “Meg. What – you – this is my palace.”

    “Duh,” comes the typically eloquent response. “Where else was I gonna find you?”

    or,

    Something’s wrong with Meg. Something’s up with Apollo. Neither of them are talking about their respective things. Things will most definitely get worse before they get better.

    Summary

    “Percy, wait!”

    Percy turned back around. “What’s up?”

    “T-thanks,” Leo said, “for the lesson.”

    “Uh, yeah. No problem.”

    Not what Leo wanted to say. He needed to say it, because he was thankful that Percy took the time to teach him. But it wasn’t what he’d planned out in his head.

    “And one more thing.”

    Percy lifted an eyebrow. “What’s that?”

    “Does the Poseidon cabin have any open bunks?”
    ————————————————
    The Hephaestus cabin is out of service and Leo needs a place to stay. Where better than one of the only cabins in camp that stays (almost) completely empty? Told from Leo’s POV.
