Depth’s of Tartarus

By Eli (AKA Fantastic Torch)

As Percy fell, he could feel the aura of Tartarus. He felt around for Anaklusmos in his pocket. It was there. He couldn’t see Annabeth but he knew she was there.


“Uhhh,” Percy groaned.

“Percy, where are you!!” Annabeth yelled.

Uma Thurman as Medusa in Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief“Here,” Percy said a couple feet away. Percy took out Riptide. The faint glow was just enough. He saw Annabeth in pain and covered in large black and blue bruises. Fifty yards away Percy and Annabeth saw a Scythian dracenae to their left and two gorgons to their right.

“Ready?” Percy asked.

“Ready,” Annabeth confirmed.

Percy’s sword was a ‘pure arc of destruction’. So the gorgons got slashed at the head and legs. Annabeth completely destroyed the Scythian dracenae. So it was a neat pile of dust.

“This will not be easy,” Percy stated.

“Definitely,” Annabeth agreed.

They walked together in the light of their sword and knife. As Percy walked he smelled the worlds worst stench. Then he saw it, His first monster…the Minotaur.

Well I guess he doesn’t have to bathe when he’s in Tartarus, Percy thought.

Then he smelled us. He did his first instinct, he charged.

“I’ll boost you up, so you can stab him in the head,” Percy told Annabeth.


“I’ll boost you,” Percy restated, “ready, set, go!!!!”

Annabeth did. She hopped on Percy’s interlocked fingers and she jumped. In the air, she slashed at his head. And the Minotaur was a sandcastle in a turbine fan.

They kept walking and they saw light. So they sprinted toward the light. When they got there they saw Nico Di Angelo staring right at them.

    It should be ‘Depths of Tartarus’ instead of ‘Depth’s of Tartarus’. The word ‘depths’ isn’t used as a possesive.
