On the day of Andromeda's long-awaited Sector Ceremony, new information comes to light about the heroes of the old. Led by Heracles, the Circle of Ancient Heroes begin a revolt against the gods and all that they stand for. Watch as Andromeda and her friends become part something big, godly big that is. Will she rise to her warrior heritage as the God's Champion? Or will she succumb to the allure of the Ancient side?


7. Some Things Never Do Change

A/N: Okay, I know naming someone after the 2 previous Illinois capitals is strange, but I wasn't feeling too creative name-wise today. Enjoy!

"NEW EDICT! NO SECTOR LEADER IS ALLOWED TO BE SET ON FIRE WITHOUT A LICENSE OR UNDER AN EMERGENCY!" That was the announcement Alexander blared out as Andromeda and her friends woke up.

"Told you!" Scarlett groggily mumbled. As they got ready for the new day, they all moved very slowly, as if that would slow down time enough for them to get more time to spend together. They had lived together in this barrack since they could remember. In Cloria, parents only raise their children until age 5, then they get put in barracks for education and training. It may seem harsh, but Clorian children have a greater aptitude for learning than a normal mortal child since they have godly blood somewhere in their ancestry.

"I guess this is in," Melissa stated sadly.

"Yeah, those were 8 good years," Andromeda added.

"At least you guys don't have the annoying people in your Sector!" Scorpia complained.

"You're the one who chose the trickster Sector!" Cassiopeia shot back. "I can't stand guys, so that is why I chose Artemis!" That was true. No guy was allowed into the Artemis Sector. If one tried to.....well...bad things would happen. Let's just say that the last guy that tried....the Apollo doctors are still in the process of reattaching his limbs and other vital parts. At least she's not as harsh as she was during the Ancient Era. Back then, the body would be so subhuman that they couldn't tell one part from another.

"The only annoying person in my Sector that I know of is Jasper," Andromeda commented.

"Yeah, that guy can drive a lot of people crazy!" Scarlett added. "I heard that there is this absolutely crazy guy that joined Aphrodite! Let me think of his, I'll think of it later." They all continued packing until they all had all of their property safely locked in their bottomless-Hermes specialty-travel bags.

"Well, I guess this is it," Andromeda declared. They all took one last look at their barrack, and headed to the the headquarters of the Tyro Compound, where they would be separated by Sector, and brought to their new temporary barrack. Upon their arrival, they were greeted by some representatives from each Sector, and walked off to join them. Andromeda strode over to the Athena representative, and walked up to her. She noticed that the only other ones there were Clytemnestra and Marius, and a few others she didn't know.

"Hello!" the representative started. "I'm Vandalia Kaskaskia, but call me Vandalia, and I will be your representative for today! Please let me scan your arm so I can check you in!" That was another reason Andromeda wanted to join Athena. When someone decided his or her Sector and the Sector insignia was imprinted on their arm, somehow, all their identification information was transferred into it as well. Pretty much everyone from the Athena Sector have scanners implanted into their index finger, whether they are extremely old, or newly-Sectored. The only way to lose it would to commit a crime or felony. Andromeda held out her forearm as Vandalia scanned it, until she heard her gasp.

"What? Is their something wrong?" Andromeda asked nervously.

"No, it's's just that you have an audience on Olympus! THE Olympus!"

"Oh yeah, I forgot about that, with rampaging rodents and all....." Vandalia looked at her incredulously, "I have to help the gods resolve a crispy critter problem!" Sudden increase in incredulousness.

"If you head over there, a transporter is waiting for you!" Vandalia exclaimed. Andromeda headed in the general direction that she pointed, and searched around for a person. Sure enough, there was a woman standing around waiting for her.

"Hello, are you my-" Andromeda cut herself off when she saw the woman's eyes. Her startling gray eyes to be exact. "Lady Athena, thank you for-"

"Not here!" Athena whisper-shouted. "I have to get you from here to there without drawing too much attention! Now take my hand, and let's go!" "Of course!" Andromeda replied as she took Athena's outstretched hand. "Let's go!"


Upon arriving on Olympus, Andromeda immediately drew her spear and shield to protect from a flying thunderbolt. After the fact, she was only left with a flimsy charred spear, and a pile of ashes that used to be a shield. She made a mental note to buy some Athena weaponry with the extra durability factor.

"Great Zeus! You vaporized our Champion's weapons!" Poseidon jeered.

"At least I'm not the one that flooded his whole Sector compound!" Zeus shot back.

"She may not even be our Champion!" Hera interjected.

"QUIET!!!!!!" Athena screamed. "I LEAVE FOR 5 MINUTES TO PICK UP MY TYRO AND I RETURN TO HER ALMOST BEING BLASTED TO SMITHEREENS! SOMEONE IS GOING TO GET IT!" The silence following her rant was so dead that you could have heard a feather drop. No one ever wanted to face Athena's wrath. "Thank you! Now, can we be civil enough to get through a conversation without frying anyone?" Arguing along the lines of, "I was civil!" and "Tell that to so-and-so!" broke out. "THAT'S IT!" Athena cried, exasperatedly. She then raised her fingers to her lips, and let out one of the most ear-piercing whistles ever. Everyone in the room, sans Andromeda who Athena put in a protective bubble, had their eardrums practically burst out.

"WHAT WAS THAT FOR!?!?!" Zeus, along with most of the other gods shouted. Athena only held up one finger, and calmly spoke,

"Wait for it.......wait for it.....NOW!" Upon saying "now" hundreds of owls flew through the windows and to the gods. Some got their eyes pecked on ferociously, others got little birdie presents on them, but one thing they all received was a shrill piercing hoots coming from each and every owl.

"STOP! STOP! WE'LL BE CIVIL! JUST STOP!!!!" all the gods exclaimed. After a few minutes, Athena let up and sent the birds away. Andromeda found it highly amusing to see the gods covered in bird presents! If it wasn't for her warrior sense of self-control, she would be laughing like a nutter on the floor.

"Now, can we reconvene? Athena, that was highly uncalled for!" Zeus proclaimed. He appeared to be going for "powerful leader" but instead, he got, "idiot covered in bird goo"

"Yes, Zeus, I think you all understood my subtext!" Athena replied, smirk evident on her face.

"Ok, when you were gone, we established that something had to be done about Theseus, that Andromeda is our Champion, and that Poseidon is the idiot that flooded his own Sector!" Several gods looked at Zeus with raving expressions, ranging from, "You really want to go through that again?" to "It was your fault I flooded my Sector!" Only a moment of silence was available until the bickering resumed. Andromeda then thought, Wow, some things never do change!
