883. the first time katie spoke to leo, it was when he accidentally set fire to demeter cabin’s grass roof. she decided she liked him when he made an automatic watering system for them to make up for it.
650. travis stoll once gave katie gardner a bouquet of yellow tulips. katie thought that it was an incredibly sweet gift until she found out that her entire patch of yellow tulips were picked. she forgave him anyways because she remembered the meaning of yellow tulips: hopelessly in love.
585. katie gardner likes to say her first car was her dad’s lawn mower.
519. percy, leo, and katie gardner once accidentally traveled to the world of avatar together. at first they were extremely confused by the shift in universe, but once they got used to it they spent a few weeks in republic city. the three of them completely decimated the pro-bending arenas together, even managing to beat the fire ferrets.
435. travis loved to prank demeter’s cabin because he loved to see katie’s face when she’d find them. everyone knew that he had a crush on her. even after they started dating and it got serious, he would prank demeter’s cabin and katie would get so mad. once, a few years after they started dating, the whole cabin was covered in chocolate bunnies. katie was about to yell at travis for the millionth time, but there was a bunny with a note attached to it, and a little thing that looked like a ring. the note read, “marry me?”
384. arion liked to talk to percy about how awesome katie’s butt felt when she rode him, much to the boy’s abhorrence. though, the species difference was too weird for him to even think about, so he usually responded with, “dude, she’s your sister.”
381. katie couldn’t understand what percy had against their brother; arion seemed pretty cool to her—she and percy were the only ones besides hazel who were allowed to ride him consistently. but every time the horse stood remotely close to percy, percy would shoot disgusted glances at the horse.
333. percy often helps katie and the demeters water their garden. the campers of cabin 4 have a game to see who can surprise percy with the hose first and get him wet, which gets surprisingly creative.
