Fan Fic / The Jackson Legacy

Go To

"Prophecies, blah-blah-blah, fate of the world lies in one child, yeah, we get those a lot. Mind if I request for something new and refreshing?"
- Mr. Flamingo He's actually Leo.

The Jackson Legacy is a Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus fan fiction written by notyourleo, well-known for writing Leo/Piper stories, notably The Bridges Ablaze.

Seven years after the events of The Heroes of Olympus, Percy Jackson mysteriously disappears from the face of the earth. His "disappearance" causes a lot of problems for the demigods, mainly half-bloods being chased and hunt down by monsters more often than usual, especially the Prophetical Seven from the second series, which forced them to go into hiding and travel from one place into another, and basically lives just got harder for all of them.


Jump another seven years later, a boy name Peter, a kid who knows of the godly world for a long time through his brother's storytelling but never truly believed in it until recently, comes to Camp Half-Blood and claims to be Percy Jackson's young mortal brother. He also claims to know where the missing Percy Jackson is, thanks to a dream, despite actually not knowing where his brother actually is. Peter is then forced to go on a quest to find his older brother, and he is dragged into a series of events where he discovers dark secrets that Percy did not include in his stories.

The first original fifteen chapters has been taken down by the author, and the revised first chapter is up. The author plans to rewrite the story from scratch under the name title, Graveyard Of Heroes. You can still read the original chapters here.

  • Another Dimension: Nameless is implied to be this.

  • No Body Left Behind: What makes some think that Percy is still alive.
  • Older and Wiser: The canon characters in the story.
  • Unfazed Everyman: Peter.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Leon and Claire.

    • In chapter eleven, one of the people in the list is "Andrew Wiggin".
    • The author mentioned in one of the author's notes that the names Leon and Claire are inspired by a certain survival horror game.
  • Smoking Is Cool: Subverted with Leo. He didn't like smoke, but he needed something to mask his demigod scent.

  • Catch a Falling Star: Leo to past!Piper. There was no Jason to save her.
  • The Dark Times

  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: In Piper's vision, she sees Leo holding in his arms a lifeless body of herself.
  • In Medias Res: The prologue of An Act Of Defiance.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong
  • Shoutout: Leo asks Hera for a deLorean.
  • Stable Time Loop
  • Reset Button: The reason why Leo and Piper went to the past is because the past was suddenly changed (because of what Leo and Piper had done, whatever it was) and an AU timeline clashed to the current timeline they currently live in and the two timelines was slowly merging into one, with the AU timeline dominating. It's making a total mess. Greece and Rome is destroyed, Gaea has fully risen, basically the world has gone to hell. It''s really complicated.
    • The ending of Road Of Defiance has the opening lines of The Lost Hero.
