Week 1, Student Blogging Challenge, Part 2

HELLO!

And WELCOME!

To a VERY long post!

🙂

As I said in Part 1, I couldn’t think of an idea for this part, because this is the About Me part. I already have an About Me page, and I did a post last year

But I came up with an idea!

I was looking at other people’s blogs, and somenone listed their favourite songs and how that explained them. I thought it was a cool idea, but I didn’t relaly want to do songs, because my favourite songs don’t say an awful lot about me. I like my favourite songs because they sound nice, not because of the meaning.

And then it came to me: I should do the same thing, but with my favourite/least favourite characters from Harry Potter, Star Wars, and Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus! (I’m part of a lot of other fandoms, but those are my main fandoms)

I’ll try keep the spoilers to the minimum, in case you haven’t read/watched the books/movies, but it probably won’t work.

But let’s do this anyways!

Harry Potter

Hermione Granger – favourite: Hermione is brave, smart, logical, and all around awesome, in my opinion. I’m bravish, I guess (well, I am in Gryffindor), I’m pretty smart, I can be logical at times, but sometimes I do whatever, and I guess I’m pretty awesome. Plus, we’re both in Gryffindor

Harry Potter – one of my favourites: Harry is very brave, has strong instincts, is humble, and caring. I’m bravish, I do follow my insticts sometimes, people tell me that I’m quite humble, and I guess I’m pretty caring. I’m also in the same house as Harry

Luna Lovegood – one of my favourites: Luna is independant, creative, and is not afraid to be herself. I guess I’m quite independant, I am quite creative, and I’m notn afraid to be mysele

Dolores Umbridge – least favourite: Umbridge is cruel, mean, despicable, and EVIL. I think that reflects on me because I don’t like people who are evil

Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus

Annabeth Chase – favourite from PJO, one of my favourites from HOO: Annabeth is logical, brave, and smart (pretty much like Hermione). My answer is also similar to the one for Hermione. Also, Annabeth and I are daughters of Athena, and we both like architecture

Percy Jackson – one of my favourites from both: Percy is similar to Harry, although not as humble as Harry. Then again, Percy is more loyal to his friends than Harry is, not to say that Harry isn’t loyal. Once again, my answer is the same as the one I did for Harry. And I’m also quite loyal to my friends.

Leo Valdez – one of my favourites from HOO: Leo’s loud, funny, loves to build, but on the inside, he hides a lot of despair and saddness. To be honest, I don’t relate to Leo very well, apart from the fact that I can be quite loud and funny with my friends. And maybe the sadness bit it relating to how sometimes I can be quite pessimistic?

Nico di Angelo – one of my favourites from HOO: Nico is quite dark and death-like, which doesn’t make a lot of sense, but it’s true! Nico is powerful, prefers to be alone, and likes the dead (ghosts, skeletons, spirits, whatever) better than the living, can get quite angry, and is pessimistic and sad. I’m not sure how I relate to Nico – I don’t exactly like the dead, let alone more than the living, and I don’t get that angry. I guess I can be pessimistic sometimes. and I don’t really know about the sadness part. I do prefer being alone or in a small group than being in a large group, though, and I think I’m pretty powerful 😛 Plus, Nico is a son of Hades, and I’m a legacy of Pluto, which is the Roman form of Hades

Hazel Levesque – one of my favourites from HOO: Hazel is kind, powerful, and generally awesome. I guess I’m pretty kind, powerful, and awesome, too 😉 Also, Hazel is a daughter of Pluto, and I’m a legacy of Pluto

Octavion – least favourite from HOO: Octavion is a mean, evil, brainless, git. And what does that mean? It means I don’t like mean, evil, brianless gits

Star Wars

Rey – my favourite from The Force Awakens: Rey is brave, strong, and just AMAZING. I think those are pretty good things to be, which is maybe why I like Rey so much

R2D2 – my favourite droid: I don’t even know why I like R2. You can’t even tell what R2D2 is saying. R2 is just awesome.

Obi-Wan Kenobi – one of my favourites in general: Obi-Wan is wise, and is awesome. (Sorry for the bad explanations of characters – I just can’t really think of anything.) Wisdom and awesomeness are some of the many qualities I try to be, so I guess that’s why Obi-Wan is in my top 4 favourite Star Wars characters

Anakin Skywalker – my favourite from the prequels: Look, I don’t even know why I like Anakin so much. The only words I can think of to describe Anakin at the moment is powerful, strong, fearful, and whiny. I don’t (think) I’m whiny…?

SO THAT’S ME DONE!

Not quite

😛

I have one last thing

Look at the background image!

I made the collage, and the pictures are from here (the Harry Potter picture), here (the Luke Skywalker picture), and here (the Percy Jackson drawing. Notice how I didn’t do the actor of Percy Jackson, because the movies are NOTHING LIKE THE BOOKS!!!)(Also notice how I didn’t do the Percy Jackson official art, because the fan art is WAY BETTER!!!)

Okay, sorry for the Percy Jackson rant

I used Font Candy and Pic Collage for this (I think)

LOOK AT IT!!! 😀

Daughter of Artemis -Part 4

***Wow, it’s been ages since I last wrote a Daughter of Artemis chapter! Recap: Amelia Johnson is Artemis’s daughter, even though Artemis is a maiden goddess, Amelia went to camp, she was lonely and undetermined in the Hermes cabin, Amelia became friends with Bella and Jake, at the end of Part 3 Amelia said that something ruined her life***

So: the beginning of when my life went downhill (but also uphill in a way) was when a familiar-looking auburn-haired girl with a silver bow marched in camp, accompanied with a girl with braided, dark hair, also with a silver bow.

People stopped what they were doing and stared at girls. They ignored everyone and walked directly to the Big House.

‘Who’re they?’ I asked Bella and Jake. We had been sitting outside on a grassy hill, near Thalia’s tree (Bella explained the story about how Luke, son of Hermes, Annabeth, daughter of Athena, and Thalia, daughter of Zeus, had arrived at camp, with a satyr named Grover). ‘I don’t know’ replied Jake. ‘Must be Hunters of Artemis. They both have silver bows, and they have a silver aura. See?’ asked Bella, pointing at the girls, who had just entered the Big House. ‘One of them had a silver circlet braided into the top of her hair, which means she’s lieutenant.’

‘Hunters of Artemis?’ I asked, ignoring the little pang I felt inside me when I heard my mother’s name, also ignoring the feeling that I knew the auburn-haired girl. ‘Artemis’s followers. You have to be a girl, and you get immortality if you join, but you can still die in battle. You have to become a maiden forever; no romantic love’ Bella answered.

A horn sounded throughout Camp Half-Blood. ‘Lunch’ I said. ‘No’ Bella said. ‘Too early for lunch.’ ‘We better get down there. We don’t want to be late’ Jake said. Together, we walked down to the pavilion.

Everyone sat down at their tables. I sat next to Jake. ‘The Hunters’ whispered Jake, pointing at a table that was usually empty. A group of about 20 girls sat there, talking and laughing. I recognised the girl with the silver circlet on her head, and the auburn-haired girl. Mr D stood up, and everyone went quiet.

‘So, hello, brats. As you can see, Artemis, with the Hunters of Artemis, have dropped in.’ Dionysus sat down abruptly. Everyone stared at Mr D as he sat down, and began eating some grapes. Chiron (in full centaur mode) stood up.

‘We would like to welcome Lady Artemis and the Hunters. They have visited, seeking more girls to join the Hunt. As it is a tradition, we shall play Capture the Flag, Lady Artemis and her followers against Camp Half-Blood tonight. This -‘

That’s when I stopped listening. I had been staring at the auburn-haired girl, when she looked right at me with her odd, bright silver eyes. And in that moment, I knew who she was.

Artemis. My mother.

Holidays (and 105 post)!

YES!!! It’s the holidays!

I’m sorry I haven’t updated my blog for about a week, we just had the Yr 7/8 production (it was so fun, though I’m really sad it’s over)! The week seems like it’s gone on for ages, with the production and a hip-hop competition and last week of school.

This happens to be my 105th post! I can’t believe I’ve done over 100 posts! I don’t even remember when I posted for the first time, though I do remember when I posted for the 1oth time.

I would have celebrated my 100th post, but I only just figured out how to find out how many posts I’ve published without having to go count every post, and it just so happens this is my 105th post!

I used to post every 2 days, but I don’t think I can do every 2 days 🙁 Maybe once a week or something? I don’t know, I don’t really have anything to post. Most of my posts were the Hunger Games story I did, but now it’s over. I have started a new story called Daughter of Artemis, but nothing’s really happened, mostly because I have NO IDEA on what to do! I put a poll up on what should happen next, but only Nikita315 has voted, so I don’t really know.

Just because I SERIOUSLY want you to vote, I’ll copy and paste the poll here. Please vote, even if you don’t read my story!

Here is the poll:

 

a) Amelia dies randomly, and the story ends [-2 votes] [Nikita315 and I did a negative vote each]

b) Amelia goes on a quest with Jake and Bella (though I’m not sure what the quest would be for) [2 votes] [Nikita315 and I did a vote each]

c) Artemis accidentally claims Amelia as her daughter (suggested by Nikita315. But what would happen to Artemis and Amelia if Artemis claimed her by accident?)  [2 votes] [Nikita315 and I did a vote each]

d) Amelia gets really annoyed that people had begun to whisper stuff about her again. In her anger, Amelia reveals that her mother is Artemis. Since Artemis swore on the River Styx that she would remain a maiden (swearing on the River Styx is the most serious oath someone can take. You die if you’re mortal, I think), the power of the River Styx removed Artemis’s godly power (like what happened to Poseidon and Apollo when they were part of a rebel group trying to take down Zeus). Artemis still has deadly accuracy with a bow, and she’s still really strong and fast and Artemis also has the Hunters of Artemis with her. Amelia, Bella, and Jake are forced to run. [1 vote] [I did a vote]

e) Amelia doesn’t like camp, and she joins the Hunters of Artemis (not sure what would happen after that, though) (maybe Bella joins the Hunters of Artemis as well?) (if this option is chosen Zoe Nightshade will be featured!) [2 votes] [Nikita315 and I did a vote each]

f) Amelia and Bella join the Hunters of Artemis, and one of them starts dating Jake (even though as a Hunter, you’re not meant to). All three of them have to hide the fact that Amelia/Bella is dating Jake [-1 vote] [I did a negative vote]

g) Amelia becomes more popular at camp, she gets more friends, people stop talking behind her back, and life for Amelia generally gets better, and the story ends

h) Amelia is really talented at archery and something else/Amelia is really popular. A god/goddess other than Artemis notices her talent, and claims Amelia as their own daughter. Amelia gets annoyed that everyone thinks that she’s a daughter of _____ and/or Artemis gets annoyed that everyone thinks her daughter Amelia is the daughter of _____. Amelia/Artemis/Both of them are really mad that this god/goddess has claimed Amelia as their child, but they can’t admit that Amelia is the daughter of Artemis, because Artemis was meant to remain a maiden [1 vote] [I did a vote]

i) Other (you write what you think should happen next in the comments)

 

So please vote! I’m going to go relax now, because it’s the HOLIDAYS! YAY!

Book quizzes

Image from here (I know the first person listed is Clary from the Mortal Instruments. There aren’t any Mortal Instrument quizzes here because it’s kind of inappropriate, but it’s a really good series)

One of my friends asked me whether I could put a bunch of book quizzes on my blog, so this is the post about book quizzes. Hope you enjoy these quizzes (you better do. I took ages on making this list)! Includes quizzes on Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, The Hunger Games,

Harry Potter quizzes:

Pottermore – Pottermore isn’t a quiz, but I really want to mention it. Pottermore is the official Harry Potter website, with information from JK Rowling about stuff not mentioned in the book. When you make an account, you start off with the official Sorting Hat quiz, that decides which house you’re going to be in: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Slytherin. You can do things like make potions and learn spells to earn House points for what House you’re in. You get to read information about characters that wasn’t covered in the Harry Potter series, from JK Rowling. Basically it’s a website on more about Harry (I think that’s why the website’s called ‘Pottermore’). Click here to go the Pottermore website. Make an account, and have fun!

Buzzfeed What Would Your “Harry Potter” Wand Core Be? – I posted this on my blog already like a month ago or something. Click here to go find out what the core of your wand would be!

My Harry Potter House quiz – If you have an extremely good memory and have frequently visited my blog since I started it, you would have remembered I made a Hogwarts House quiz. Here is the quiz I made:

1. Which path would you take out of these?

a) The twisting leafy path throughout the woods

b) A cobblestone pathway through a village

c) The wide, open grassy field

d) A cramped, lantern-lit path

2. Your friend that lives down the road calls you on the phone to ask for help with your homework. You were very tired and were about to go to have an midday nap, when you remembered that you were half-way through a movie you wanted to finish. It’s the weekend. What order do you do things in?

a) Help my friend, watch the movie, then sleep

b) Sleep, help my friend, then watch the movie

c) Help my friend, sleep, then watch the movie

d) Watch the movie, sleep, then help my friend

4. Which word would annoy you the most if someone used it to describe you?

a) Cowardly

b) Ignorant

c) Selfish

d) Ordinary

5. What is your favourite element?

a) Fire

b) Air

c) Earth

d) Water

Results:

Mostly ‘A’s – Gryffindor! (Brave)

Mostly ‘B’s – Ravenclaw! (Smart)

Mostly ‘C’s – Hufflepuff! (Kind)

Mostly ‘D’s – Slytherin! (Cunning)

(I don’t know how accurate this quiz is :/ )

Buzzfeed  ”Which Hogwarts House Do You Belong In? quiz – This is quite a good House quiz (in my opinion). It has quite accurate answers (for me, anyways), and it isn’t really obvious which answer leads to which house (eg. on some test it says things like: ‘Which subject do you like most?’ a) Transfiguration b) Charms c) Herbology d) Potions (that isn’t even accurate. Not all Gryffindors like Transfiguration, not all Hufflepuffs like Herbology)). Click here to go to the Buzzfeed quiz.

Which Hogwarts Professor Are You? quiz – Because this list is getting really long and boring, I’m putting 2 different quizzes under the same heading. Click here for the Zimbio quiz and here for the Buzzfeed quiz

Buzzfeed ‘We Know Your Favorite Harry Potter Character Based On Your Favorite Color’ – This isn’t accurate, I just felt like putting this quiz on this massive list of quizzes. The colour representing whatever attribute part is correct, but just because you like _____ colour doesn’t mean you’re that Harry Potter character. I got Harry Potter, when my favourite character is Hermione Granger (Harry is a close second though). Click here and see what you get anyway!

Percy Jackson quizzes:

Demigod Quiz – I can’t find any official Percy Jackson quiz, but these ones are quite good. Click here to take the Quotev quiz, and click here to take some other quiz to find out who your godly parent is!

Hunger Games quizzes:

Would You Survive the Hunger Games? – Ever wondered if you would survive the Hunger Games? Find out by taking these test: Click here for the Zimbio quiz (yay! At the beginning of the year I took this and I got 0%, I took it again now and I got 50%!), click here for the

How Long Would You Survive The Hunger Games? – Even if you know you wouldn’t win the Hunger Games, it’s still pretty cool to know how long you’d survive. Click here to find out how long you would survive in the Hunger Games!

Which Hunger Games District Would You Be In – There’s 13 districts, plus the Capitol (even though these quizzes don’t include the Capitol as a result). Which one would you live in? Find out by clicking here (Buzzfeed) and here (Zimbio)!

Divergent quizzes:

What faction would you be in? – Out of the 5 factions, Dauntless, Abnegation, Erudite, Candor, or Amity, which would you be? Or would you be Divergent? Click here for the official quiz, click here for a Quotev quiz, click here for a Zimbio quiz, click here for a PlayBuzz quiz, and click here for a Buzzfeed quiz

Gone quiz:

Which Main Character Are You? – Only Gone quiz for now, I’m getting SO BORED. I’m guessing you are, as well (wait…so does that mean I did all this for NOTHING??? :O ). So this is the only Gone quiz. Click here for a Gone quiz on Gotoquiz

Oh my gods I FINALLY FINISHED THIS! This took an HOUR. Comment and tell me which quiz you took and what result you got, whether you liked this post, and whether you know a good quiz based on these books! (Most of the quizzes here were not made by me, etc.)

Oh, and remember to vote on the Daughter of Artemis poll, even if you don’t read my Daughter of Artemis story (previous post).

Daughter of Artemis -Part 3.5 (yeah, not Part 4. Sorry)

Image from here. In the Percy Jackson series, that’s what you need to say if you’re joining the Hunters of Artemis

Hello! Just to let you know, this isn’t part of the storyline for Daughter of Artemis. WAIT! Don’t you get annoyed at me and leave my blog to look at something else on the Internet. It’s a poll for what should happen next. Please comment and vote, it will probably speed things up, because I haven’t even started Part 4 because I don’t know what should happen, and I can’t rhyme! So here are the options:

a) Amelia dies randomly, and the story ends

b) Amelia goes on a quest with Jake and Bella (though I’m not sure what the quest would be for)

c) Artemis accidentally claims Amelia as her daughter (suggested by Nikita315. But what would happen to Artemis and Amelia if Artemis claimed her by accident?)

d) Amelia gets really annoyed that people had begun to whisper stuff about her again. In her anger, Amelia reveals that her mother is Artemis. Since Artemis swore on the River Styx that she would remain a maiden (swearing on the River Styx is the most serious oath someone can take. You die if you’re mortal, I think), the power of the River Styx removed Artemis’s godly power (like what happened to Poseidon and Apollo when they were part of a rebel group trying to take down Zeus so Zeus couldn’t be king). Artemis still has deadly accuracy with a bow, and she’s still really strong and fast and Artemis also has the Hunters of Artemis with

e) Amelia doesn’t like camp, and she joins the Hunters of Artemis (not sure what would happen after that, though) (maybe Bella joins the Hunters of Artemis as well?)

f) Amelia and Bella join the Hunters of Artemis, and one of them starts dating Jake (even though as a Hunter, you’re not meant to). All three of them have to hide the fact that Amelia/Bella is dating Jake

g) Amelia becomes more popular at camp, she gets more friends, people stop talking behind her back, and life for Amelia generally gets better, and the story ends

h) Amelia is really talented at archery and something else/Amelia is really popular. A god/goddess other than Artemis notices her talent, and claims Amelia as their own daughter. Amelia gets annoyed that everyone thinks that she’s a daughter of _____ and/or Artemis gets annoyed that everyone thinks her daughter Amelia is the daughter of _____. Amelia/Artemis/Both of them are really mad that this god/goddess has claimed Amelia as their child, but they can’t admit that Amelia is the daughter of Artemis, because Artemis was meant to remain a maiden

i) Other (you write what you think should happen next in the comments)

You’re allowed to vote for multiple choices (eg. I might say that I want to vote for ‘e’ and ‘c’). You can also say things like ‘I don’t want ‘h’ to be chosen’. Please vote, because I can’t decide which of these to do, plus I want to know what you guys want! If you don’t vote, I might just pick a random choice, and it might be a choice that you don’t like, so you have to vote! I’m not putting a deadline (eg. poll closed on Tuesday 15 of September), but vote as soon as you can!

Daughter of Artemis -Part 3

Friends at camp

 

So, as you know, after a few weeks at Camp Half-Blood, I had no friends. People stopped talking about me, for 2 reasons: One, they didn’t want me yelling at them after my last angry outburst, and two, another demigod had arrived at camp. People were more interested in the boy that arrived, because he was easier to guess (I thought that he was a son of Hephaestus, along with pretty much everyone else).

Another prank was pulled on me by some Hermes kids, and everyone started laughing real loudly, because a whole bunch of toothpaste was in my sleeping bag and I hadn’t realised (since I was so upset about not having any friends) until I was smothered in toothpaste. I wasn’t mad at people laughing at the prank, because it actually was quite funny, but it felt like everyone was laughing at me, and I just felt so sad, and lonely. I just walked into the bathroom, quickly washed off the toothpaste, then lay my pillow and stared at the ceiling.

A boy who was about 10 seperated himself from the mass of laughing Hermes kids, sensing how upset I was. ‘Are you alright?’ he asked. ‘Not really’ I mumbled. ‘Sorry about that prank’ he apologised. ‘But you know, that was pretty hilarious.’ He grinned with the air of someone trying not to laugh. ‘Yeah, I guess it was quite funny. It’s just that I don’t really have any friends…’ I felt ashamed and sad that I had no friends. We continued to talk, while everyone else kept roaring with laughter.

I found out his name was Jake Wells, and more about him. He had a step-father, a mother and 2 step-sisters, and had a pretty good life (even though Jake thought he had no real father), until funny things began to happen. A satyr found him just before he turned 10, and he arrived at camp soon after.

I had to lie quite a lot when it was my turn to tell my life story. I lied and said I used to live with just my father (I made up a name and said he was Brendon Johnson instead of Michael Johnson). A satyr found me when I was 11 and when I finally arrived at camp, I was 12 (that part was true).

When I went to bed that day, I was extremely happy. I finally had a friend!

The next day Jake introduced me to his friend, Bella Shortbird. She was an 11-year-old Athena girl. Bella was nice, and we quickly became friends.

I found out that Bella wasn’t very happy when she lived with her father and step-mother. Bella argued a lot with her parents, and it was getting to the point that she wanted to run away when a satyr found Bella at school, with a monster attacking her.

It was nice, sitting with my new friends Jake and Bella by the lake, talking about ourselves so we could get to know each other better. I felt so happy that I felt like I would explode with joy, because I finally had friends! But, of course, something came along to ruin EVERYTHING.

So, what hap – oh, there’s Bella calling for me (I bet she lost that massive science book again). Gotta go. I’ll tell you what ruined my life next time! (Yay…)

-Amelia Johnson, Daughter of Artemis

***Mwahaha the cliff hanger. May be a while for the next Daughter of Artemis to come out, because I still haven’t made up a STUPID PROPHECY. Why do they have to rhyme?!?!

Anyway, thanks for reading!***

Daughter of Artemis -Part 3 (actually no. This doesn’t really count as Part 3. I’ll just call it Part 2.5)

***Hey guys! I’ve decided to write a Part 2.5 for Daughter of Artemis. It’s basically just a bunch of facts about the characters that have been introduced so far (which isn’t many). I’m doing this because I’m still trying to think of what should happen next. Basically I’m just stalling for time. It’s quite short, sorry. Part 3 will be up soon (with a load of luck)! (I really doubt that Part 3 will be up soon, but keep faith!) Anyways, enjoy!***

Life at Camp Half-Blood

 

At 11 years old, I was attracting too many monsters to the valley in which I lived with the nymphs. To not raise suspicion, Artemis told the nymphs to take me to a normal school, so a satyr could find me, like how all the other demigods are found.

I went to the school, and that’s when I found out: I hadn’t learnt how to read, do maths, or write with the nymphs. Nymphs don’t home-school. So naturally, I fail everything at school. I can’t do the simplest equations. I can barely write a word. And, when I look at words and letters, they seem to float around, and I can’t see what the word is.

I was bullied a lot, because I was quiet and failed everything. Mostly I ignored it, but I always had an angry feeling boiling inside me.

Eventually, a satyr came and brought me to Camp Half-Blood, when I was 12. We only just got over the border, with monsters right on our heels.

When I first arrived, I got given a tour by the head of the Demeter cabin, Lily, who was 4 years older than me. The pegasus-stables were quite cool. The climbing-wall looked really dangerous, as lava was pouring down everywhere. When I first went to the place where all the cabins were, I instantly liked Cabin 7, a faintly glowing silver cabin. ‘That’s the Artemis cabin. It’s just for honour, no one uses it because Artemis is a maiden goddess. The Hunters sometimes use it, but not often, as a while ago they burnt it down. Long story’ Lily told me. I nearly said that Artemis was my mother, but then realised just in time that I couldn’t say.

I was moved into the over-crowded Hermes cabin, since I was undetermined. The space that was mine was tiny. I didn’t have anything, but a few Hermes people went and stole a toothbrush, some clothes, and a pillow for me. They were pretty much my only possessions.

The next day we did all these training-activities. I wasn’t that great with a sword, but a tiny bit better with a knife. I was quite quick in learning the basics of pegasus-riding. When we went to read Greek books, I could read it a lot better than I did at school. When we went to the archery range, on my first shot I nearly got a bullseye.

Everyone was real impressed when I got the middle of the target on my 3rd go. ‘Apollo’ I heard several other Hermes say to each other

I was still quiet, so I didn’t really have any friends. I was nearly always alone, but I didn’t mind too much. It can be nice to be by yourself.

After a few days, everyone was confused. The Hermes cabin often betted money on who was what god’s child, but no one could decide on whose child I was. Plenty of people thought Apollo, since I shot arrows really good, but I was pretty quiet, which made not a lot of sense. Apollo tended to be quite flashy and loud, which was completely the opposite of me.

‘I’d say Artemis, if Artemis wasn’t a no-love goddess’ I heard people whisper to each other as I walked past.

After about a week, I got annoyed with everyone talking behind my back. I still had no friends, and I hated being in the Hermes cabin by now. Multiple pranks had been pulled on me, one ending with me with whipped cream and confetti in my hair. I hated that I couldn’t tell a single soul about my mother being Artemis, I was getting bored of being another undetermined kid in Hermes.

Whenever I heard snatches of conversations about me being a daughter of Apollo/Artemis, I would get really mad. Eventually, I lost my temper, and I started yelling at everyone. People stopped talking about me, which was good, but people began to ignore me, which was probably even more irritating.

Eventually I made friends with a few people, but that was a few weeks after I arrived at camp.

I’ll tell you about my friends another time, but I won’t now. Going over this stuff still makes me mad.

So, yeah. I’ll just go and calm down before I get so mad that I get out a bow and start shooting people

Just joking 🙂

***Thanks for reading! Again, PLEASE help with the prophecy by suggesting 2 or more lines in rhymes that relates to the story! If you can’t rhyme either, comment anyway and tell me what you want to happen. Daughter of Artemis is proving harder to write than The Hunger Game. I mean, there’s only so much you can do in a death arena, whereas with this, anything could happen. Amelia could tell everyone her mother’s Artemis, Amelia could sneak into the Artemis cabin and pray then get caught, Artemis might ty and kill Amelia to make sure no one finds out about Artemis breaking her vow, Artemis might give up and tell everyone that she broke her how, ANYTHING!

So please show some support and comment! If you don’t have an Edublogs account and can’t comment, make an account, then come back here and comment! 🙂 Joking. Just comment if you can!***

Daughter of Artemis

***Hi guys! This is a Percy Jackson/Greek mythology based story, so good idea to read Percy Jackson (or learn about Greek mythology). Special thanks to Nikita315 for suggesting the main idea to the story!

This is set before the Percy Jackson series. Enjoy!***

 

Birth of the Daughter of Artemis (and other stuff)

 

My name is Amelia Johnson, Daughter of Artemis

I know you’re thinking What? Isn’t Artemis a strictly no-love goddess? How could she have a child? Because, once, just once, she fell in love with a mortal man (who ended up being my father).

His name was Daniel Johnson. Daniel was pretty everything Artemis was, swift, a good hunter, and strong. Artemis met him once when she travelled to a town to look for girls who wanted to join the Hunt. Artemis secretly liked him, but was slightly worried and confused. She was a maiden goddess; why was she having feelings for a mortal

Eventually Artemis left the Hunters of Artemis to camp for a few weeks in a forest without Artemis, and she left, pretending that she was leaving to visit Mount Olympus for something. Artemis sneaked back to the town where Daniel lived, and they fell in love with each other.

After Artemis returned to her followers, the Hunters noticed that she seemed slightly different. Artemis isolated herself, only talking when needed, and seemed kind of odd. None of the Hunters said anything, because they didn’t want to say anything that offended her in some way.

The reason Artemis was alone a lot because she found out she was pregnant (with me). Artemis didn’t know what to do, because she couldn’t admit that she loved Daniel, because then everyone would know that Artemis broke her vow to be a maiden forever. Artemis didn’t know anything about having a baby, and she didn’t know how to hide and take care of her unborn baby.

Artemis went to some nymphs in a distant valley (making up some excuse to her Hunters again), and asked them to help her. She promised them immortality if they helped her, but Artemis said that if they told anyone, she’d shoot them with her bow, over and over again (since they would be immortal). The nymphs agreed to help Artemis, and to keep her secret. Something like 9 months later, bam! Amelia Johnson (me) was born!

I was brought up by the immortal nymphs that helped Artemis, and I had a nice peaceful life in the valley. I didn’t do much there. Not many monsters attacked me there, so pretty much everything was calm.

Artemis returned to the Hunters, and never visited me, except once. When I was 7, Artemis came back and delivered me a warning.

‘Amelia, you must not tell ANYONE that you are my daughter. No one in the world apart from you, me, Daniel and  these nymphs here should know that you are my daughter’ Artemis said to me. I asked her who Daniel was, and Artemis explained that Daniel was my father, because up until then I hadn’t known who my father was.

Around about 11 years old, monsters began to attack me. It’s a little late for a demigod for weird things to happen at 11, but the place where I was brought up was quite a secluded spot.

The nymphs got tired of all the monsters attacking all the time, so they asked Artemis whether I could go to Camp Half-Blood. Artemis agreed, and then I arrived at Camp Half-Blood, a satyr guiding me to Half-Blood Hill at the age of 12.

And that’s pretty much my childhood. Next time, I’ll tell you about my life at Camp Half-Blood.

But now, I’ll need to go.

***Hello readers! I don’t know whether this is going to have more parts coming afterwards, like the Hunger Games story I did. I would like to write more parts to Daughter of Artemis, but I don’t know what would happen. Anyone have an idea for what could happen later on?***

Swimming sports (and book tests)

Yesterday was swimming sports for the Yr 7/8s. For the races, you could pick either non-competitive or competitive, but not both. I decided on non-competitive, as well as my friends Jiya and Zoe. Annabelle was forced to pick competitive.

While we were waiting, I did the Harry Potter house test, the Percy Jackson godly parent test, and the Divergent aptitude test on my friends. The results were quite pretty interesting, and certainly kept us occupied while we waited for our races.

For the Harry Potter test, Annabelle and I got Gryffindor, Zoe got Hufflepuff, and Jiya got Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff (so basically Jiya is Divergent. Actually all 4 of us are, but we tend to be more Dauntless, or Erudite, or whatever). Any, since I was serving as the Sorting Hat, I let Jiya choose her house, and she chose Ravenclaw.

For the Percy Jackson test, Annabelle and Zoe both got daughter of Poseidon, Jiya got daughter of Zeus (wow, a Divergent daughter of the king of the gods), and I got daughter of Athena.

For the Divergent test, we all got Divergent (no surprise). Annabelle is Dauntless-Erudite, slightly more Dauntless. Jiya and I both got Dauntless-Erudite as well, but leaning towards Erudite. Zoe got Erudite-Abnegation-Dauntless. (If you’re wondering, normally all 4 of us get Dauntless-Abnegation-Erudite. This test only had 3 questions, because I was making up the questions on the spot.)

For our swimming races, all of us came 2nd to last in nearly all our races, even in our class relay, we came 2nd to last.

Oh, I nearly forgot the noodle-race. Jiya and I competed in the noodle-race (the noodle-race was non-competitive). Before the race, all the Yr 7 girls competing made a deal – all of us would try and stick in a massive pack, and try to all tie. It pretty much worked, except we didn’t all tie.

The End.

(If you are regularly reading my blog and are getting bored of listening to stuff about my life, don’t worry. Next post will probably be the start of my Percy Jackson fanfiction!) (Mwhahahaha I’m not gonna tell you what it’s about 😉 )
