How long.

What do you see?


But no lightning.



Do you think I stole?

Omnipotence has blinded

the brother.

We are forbidden to steal

the powers of each other.

But our children did not return.

You are accusing my son?

Do not see him since

he was a baby.

He does not know me or know

who he is, because of you.

If your child is a thief,

I will send to the bottom

of Tartarus.

If you hit him, will the

war of your life.

He should give me the radius,

in 14 days, until midnight

of the summer solstice.

Or will there be a war.

And he is alive.

Percy Jackson is the guy.

- How long will I?

- Seven minutes.

- Seven minutes?

- Yes

This is crazy, you

know How do it?

I do not know, just like

being in the water.

It is the only place

I can think of.

I would spend all day on the

water, instead of this site.

I understand, this is like high

school, without the music.

Every day is the same thing.

Good morning, I'm Mrs. Dodds.

Substitute teacher of English.

Can anyone tell me

what Shakespeare

meant in this passage

from Othello?

Percy Jackson.


UNDERSTAND anger in words

but not his words.

Sorry, do not know.

Anyone else?

- Mom, I.

- Up here, dear.

- Hi

- Hi, Mom.

- How was school today?

- The usual.

This thing of dyslexia

is getting worse.

Why do you think that?

I do not know, maybe it's ADD.

I found the school existed

to make things better.

Percy, I know it's terribly


But someday, everything

will make sense.



Today? Tomorrow? When?


Hello Gabe.

Where's my beer?

The refrigerator.

Then it will magically

appear in my hand?

Are you serious, you

need to do it here?

It's disgusting, we

are in the kitchen.

Very charming.

Show some respect.

Is my mother.

This is my home.

You show some respect.

Why is with this pig?

It smells like sewage.

He sleeps until noon, and

is not in any employment.

Why is he with?

It helps us in a way that

you do not understand.

You are right, do

not understand.

Prepare, Percy, everything

is about to change.

Everything will change ...

There are 12 Olympian gods.

The big three are all brothers

Zeus, Poseidon and Hades.

Obtained the power, overthrowing

his father, Cronus,

cutting it into pieces.

The three are rivals since then.

Always arguing, always

threatening a war.

On several occasions,

came ? Earth.

E. .. how can I talk ...


They going out with mortals.

The fruits of these meetings were

half god and half human.

Can anyone tell me how

they were called?


Sorry, that Mr. Brunner?

What is the right name of the descendant

of a human and a God?

- Semideus.

- Exactly.

Many have become great heroes.

Hercules and Achilles.

Know the name of some other?

I'll give you a hint.

Do you have something in common.

Persian defeated CETO

Percy ... Perseus?


Here is a picture of Hercules

defeating the Nemean lion.

Hercules killed the monster

with his own hands

and took the skin as a trophy.

- Percy ...

- Yes, Mrs. Dodds?

We need to talk.

I did something wrong?

Mrs. Dodds?


Where is it?

How did they get up there?

You stole my thunder!

- I do not know what you're talking!

- Give me!

Give me now!


Let him go!

You ...

Drop it or I swear I'll

cut to pieces.

I'm going crazy.

Should go on vacation.

Percy, calm down.

Everything will be fine.

God, wait.

... It really happened?

She turned that thing?


Hidden in our school, I

should have imagined.

Hold on. Fury? What is a Fury?

And who said he could
