Why this must be read: Pre-series with little child Percy, this short story focuses on Sally Jackson-- a low-income single mother in NYC with the added burden of caring for a child who is hunted by monsters-- and how she came to be with Gabe Ugliano. Sally Jackson is, to me, the real hero of the Percy Jackson series, and this ficlet addresses her hidden heroism.

Why this must be read: This is a great introduction the the charms of this fandom to anyone who is not familiar with the books. In other fandoms, this would be crack fic, but in PJO it's pretty much your standard day. Even if you are already a PJO fan, you should read it because it's hilarious!

Why this must be read: First of all, this is post-Mark of Athena and is majorly spoilery for the ending of that book, so this is for people who have read that far. But if you have, you do need to read it. It's a completely different-- and far more 'literary'-- perspective on the ending. It explores themes of life and death, winning and losing, and how death is not always losing, nor is living the same as winning even when you are in a battle for your life. It's a majestic piece.

But she should have known that nothing keeps when you're a demigod. At some point, you end up in a situation that's truly hopeless, that cannot be avoided and cannot be beaten.

Why this must be read: In general I am enchanted with the idea of a poor single mom in New York City trying to raise a demigod as if he were normal. There are some things we know about Percy Jackson, such as the fact that he and his mother took vacations to the beach every summer. How did she get to such a place emotionally? This is Percy's hypothetical first trip to the beach from Sally's point of view.

Why this must be read: This is not just a post-Mark of Athena story, but actually in theory takes up somewhere near the end of where House of Hades supposedly might go, so it's definitely spoilery. It deals with some of the complexities of post traumatic stress in an environment of fluff and friendship. There are terrifying flashbacks to the circumstances at the end of Mark of Athena that cause the post-traumatic stress. This is specifically a good one for someone who has read all the books but has not entered the fandom at all and would like a first fic as a good starting point with the main canon characters & pairing.
