Go To

GG, Kronos, But I Have Foresight is a Percy Jackson and the Olympians self-insert Fan Fiction written by TheRealEvanSG.

All of the Greek gods are pretty much Jerkass Gods with their own agendas, Percy is a ridiculously sassy little kid, and Evan Gamble is just a punk-ass, possibly bisexual otaku making butterflies so big that they create fucking tornadoes. Oh, and he also appears to have been turned into a girl for some largely unknown reason. Screw this, she's not taking it! Kronos is getting so many blue plastic hairbrushes to the face. That's if she can survive all of the Greek monsters, butterflies, and secret plots, however.


The story can be found on FFN, Spacebattles, Sufficient Velocity, Wattpad, Archive of Our Own, and finally

Tropes contained in GG, Kronos, But I Have Foresight:

  • Accidental Misnaming: True to canon, Mr. D still refuses to call anyone by their actual name. And when he does, you know he's serious as a heart attack.
    • He calls Beckendorf, Chuck Benzenburg.
    • He calls Eve, Evana Chance (which is hilariously close to her actual name).
  • Acid-Trip Dimension: The tunnel through which Evan first falls into the world of Percy Jackson and the Olympians is described as confusion, color, and contrast.
  • Action Girl: Eve puts herself in place of Percy to fight Mrs. Dodds in the Metropolitan Museum of Arts.
  • Actually Pretty Funny: Once Eve stops laughing at his unfortunate win from the Minotaur, Beckendorf admits that yes, it was actually a little funny.
  • Adaptational Early Appearance: Beckendorf shows up as Eve's escort to Camp, despite his canon first appearance being in Book 2.
  • Advertisement:
  • Affectionate Parody: When Eve and Beckendorf arrive in Camp Half-Blood, the campers are singing This Land is Minos's Land, a campfire song mentioned in the canon series but never sung or explained. In this story, it's a parody of This Land is Your Land with locations from Crete replacing American ones.
  • And I Must Scream: Upon discovering that she is a girl now instead of a guy, Eve's first reaction (and several subsequent reactions after that) is to scream very loudly.
  • Backhanded Apology: Said by one of Nancy's bully group members to Grover after he and Percy get them to leave Eve alone.
  • Bad Liar: Percy tells Eve she is this.
  • Bait-and-Switch: In the beginning of chapter two, Eve tells Nancy she's done screaming. Then she immediately screams for the real last time.
  • Bi the Way: Eve ends up crushing on Will Solace. Since she's a guy in a girl's body, this makes her bisexual considering she still is attracted to girls as well.
  • Advertisement:
  • Chick Magnet: Unwillingly, Will Solace. He moans about how all his life, girls have always been attracted to him, and he doesn't even like girls.
  • Cosmic Plaything: In the opening paragraph of chapter 9, Percy says that it's as though the universe has some sort of grudge against him. And considering the plot of The Lightning Thief... yeah, this is kind of true.
  • Crash-Into Hello: Eve accidentally does this to Beckendorf in chapter 8, bringing them both to the ground.
  • Death Glare: Apollo earns himself one when he calls Athena stunning. He shrugs it off, however.
  • Different for Girls: Eve spends an hour trying to figure out how to pee using her new body.
  • Distant Prologue: The time that the Greek gods seem to be discussing whether to gain help from Evan or not seems to be around the beginning or end of Book 4. The first chapter begins a day before the events of Book 1, however.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: When Eve's mood about the realization of being in Percy Jackson is lowering until her thoughts get cut off by switching to another question, it leaves us with an "accidental," rather suggestive phrase: Percy Jacks.
  • Environmental Symbolism: The Greek gods' council when they decide her fate starts on the morning of the Winter Council, symbolising the closing of one chapter of her life and the start of another. It is also symbolising the end of her time as a male and the beginning of her time as a female.
  • Eureka Moment: Eve realizes she is a self-insert upon thinking about the mysterious circumstances that brought her into a girl's dorm room in New York City during 2005, and by connecting that to her love of writing fanfiction.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Will Solace.
    Michael Yew: (to Eve) Ah, I see you've found the reason why we call Will the Wife-Stealer. Although he's really the Husband-Stealer, too.
  • Evil Laugh: Done by Kronos at the end of chapter 8.
  • Eye Twitch: Athena gets one after hearing Ares denounce all plans as being stupid.
  • Fake Memories: Everyone in Yancy gets these of Eve upon her arrival due to the Mist messing with the normies' minds. Only Grover, Chiron, and Mrs. Dodds don't get affected by the Mist's manipulations, thanks to them being aware of the godly world.
  • Fatal Flaw: In chapter 7, Mr. D tells Eve that her fatal flaw is trying to change the world for what she perceives as being better.
  • First Law of Gender-Bending: Since the only way Artemis and Hera would accept taking Evan into their world would be if he was a girl, it is very unlikely that Eve will ever become a guy again.
  • For Want of a Nail:
    • Eve punching Nancy drew Mrs. Dodds's anger towards her instead of Percy, causing her to get in trouble and attacked in the museum. This also means that Percy does not realize the supposed Math teacher is a monster.
    • Since he technically didn't do anything wrong, Percy never got in trouble for the incident at Yancy. In fact, Nancy ended up getting scared and never talking to him again after Eve punched her, taking a lot more stress off of his shoulders. This caused him to not get too stressed to study and to not overhear Chiron and Grover talking about him, and even made him do better on his end-of-the-year exams. Eve punching Nancy for him allowed Yancy to say they'd accept him back for another year.
    • When the Greyhound breaks down in the country lane, Percy and Grover witness the three Fates cutting two strings instead of just one.
  • Gender Bender: Eve was originally a boy named Evan. However, when the Greek gods and goddesses were discussing what to do about her in the prologue (or chapter 1, if you read it on, Artemis and Hera decided that they couldn't accept a boy to do a job a girl could do just as easily. Aphrodite suggested swapping Evan's gender to satiate them.
  • Genre Savvy: Eve has read all of the Percy Jackson books to date. Furthermore, she's written enough fanfiction before this fiasco to recognize that she's likely in a self-insert.
  • Gut Feeling: Apollo states that he has a hunch Hypnos's dream about Evan might be the way forward.
  • Head Desk: Eve ends up introducing her forehead to the mess hall table after drooling over Will while trying to make intelligent conversation.
  • Heroic BSoD: After Mr. D's speech about why changing the future will only make things worse for everyone even if it does work, Eve enters one of these states and is unable to fall asleep. Eventually, she reaffirms her confidence in her ability to save the lives of the other campers by deciding that she can't focus on the what ifs and should only focus on what will happen if she doesn't do anything (while also planning things out carefully to avoid any bad effects).
  • Humans Are Bastards: The first time she really gets mad at Nancy/Nancy's friends, Eve manages to calm herself down by telling herself that all people are jerks.
  • I Come in Peace: Eve's first words to Nancy are, "Hello, Earthling. Are you Russian?"
  • Impaled Palm: Thanks to her inexperience, Eve completely fails to catch Riptide when Chiron throws it at her in chapter 4, and it impales her through her hand. Since she's a human, though, the Celestial Bronze doesn't hurt her, so it's just stuck in her hand with everyone hilariously jaw dropping at it.
  • In Spite of a Nail: Even though Eve and Beckendorf killed the Minotaur, and even though Percy and Grover made it to Camp Half-Blood safely, Sally still ended up getting attacked and captured, although in this case Hades may have rescued her.
  • It's Probably Nothing: Even though Eve catches the vague figure of something huge and furry with horns, she desperately refuses to believe it's not the Minotaur, and instead a really huge bison or something. (It's the Minotaur.)
  • Jaw Drop: Eve gets one at just how much of a jerkass Nancy is.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: Of the four people witnessing, Percy is the only one freaking out about the sword stuck in Eve's hand. Granted, this is merely lampshaded since she's not actually injured thanks to it being made of Celestial Bronze, but it's still funny.
  • Mediator: Poseidon acts as this for his two Big Three brothers in the prologue, when Hades gets angry at Zeus.
  • Muggle Best Friend: For Percy and co., Eve is this. She's just a normal human, the only things special about her being the fact that she's from another world, has future knowledge, and can see through the Mist.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: One of the things that makes Eve realize how serious Mr. D is about his speech in chapter 7 is that he actually calls her by her real name; and not just her girl name, either, but her original, male name.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Eve gets one when she realizes her first class with Mrs. Dodds could involve Eve being late, thanks to Nancy waking her up a mere ten minutes before the bell.
    • Beckendorf gets one when he sees the Minotaur for the first time.
  • Pun: Grover unknowingly makes one about Mrs. Dodds, calling her furious; the joke being that she is actually a Fury.
    • Chapter 3's title is "I Have Fury," a play on both the fact that Eve gets angry at Nancy and that it's Mrs. Dodds's first appearance. It's ALSO a reference to Fawful, who commonly shouted this in the Mario and Luigi games.
  • Rule of Three: Used at the end of Chapter 5 for Eve's, Beckendorf's, and the taxi cab driver's exclamations after the appearance of the Minotaur.
    Eve: Meep!
    Beckendorf: Oh, Hades.
    The driver: GODDAMNED TRAFFIC!
  • Sanity Slippage: Nancy apparently texted her friends that Eve's sanity finally snapped, due to the excessive amount of screaming she did for seemingly no reason (to an outsider's point of view).
  • Self-Insert Fic: Eve is a gender-bended version of the author, Evan.
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Lee Fletcher jokingly says this applies to Will sometimes.
  • Suggestive Collision: When the door to the room Eve ends up in during chapter 1 opens, and she accidentally knocks into the person coming in and gets her vision blocked, she desperately hopes it's not this cliche.
  • Tempting Fate: In chapter 9, Percy states that he'll go looking for trouble when pigs fly. Later in the chapter, the Crommyonian Sow sent by Kronos attacks Sally, leading to Hades either inadvertently or purposefully rescuing her by capturing her as in canon.
  • These Are Things Man Was Not Meant to Know: Eve states that going to the bathroom as a girl is one of these things.
  • The World Is Just Awesome: Eve describes the sight of Camp Half-Blood coming up across the other side of the hill as being able to wipe away the awkward sadness she and Beckendorf fell into upon seeing Thalia's tree.
  • Time Travel: The Book 4-ish gods manage to not only pull Evan across dimensions and turn him into Eve, but also send him to the beginning of Book 1.
  • Training Montage: Chapter 8 has one of Eve in Camp Half-Blood. The chapter's even called Obligatory Training Montage.
  • True Sight: Eve has the ability to see through the Mist despite being a normal mortal.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Eve punches Nancy in chapter 3.
  • You Cannot Change The Future: Mr. D warns Eve that no matter how hard she tries, she won't be able to save anyone's life. In fact, even if she does, it could just make it worse for other people.
