                                            Castor to Pollux

                                         October 25, 8:00 PM

                                                                 Yo, bro! What're you up 2
                                                                 2night?

Elysium Casino all the way.

                                                                 Again?

Not much else to do, man.

                                                                 Yeah, I know it. I can't
                                                                 believe you decided to share
                                                                 your immortality with me.

What are brothers for?

                                                                 It kind of sucks that we have
                                                                 to alternate between Olympus
                                                                 and Hades.

We're always together up in
the sky, right?

                                                                 Oh yeah, as Gemini. I never
                                                                 understood how that worked
                                                                 exactly.

What do you mean?

                                                                 How are we in the Underworld,
                                                                 Olympus, and the sky all at the
                                                                 same time?

Greeky magic, man. I don't
know.

                                         October 25, 11:00 PM

                                                                 Just saw some sailors in turtle.

???

                                                                 *trouble

Sending St. Elmo's Fire?

                                                                 Yeah, they'll know the
                                                                 Dioscuri are with them, bro!

Sweet.

                                                                 How's the Casino?

Crappy. Helen is making out
with Paris.

                                                                 What?!!!

I know. She's just asking for
trouble.

                                                                 Maybe we should've never
                                                                 rescued her from Theseus in
                                                                 Athens.

U don't mean that. She's
our salami.

                                                                 ???

*sister

                                                                 Clytemnestra's our sister, too.

Ugh, let's not talk about
Clytemnestra.

                                                                 She is pretty psychotic.

Sometimes I think that being
born from eggs really messed
us all up.

                                                                 Scrambled our brains.

lol

                                         October 25, 11:05 PM

                                                                 Who the heck is St. Elmo
                                                                 anyway?

I don't know, but I bet he
likes to be tickled.

                                                                 lol

                                         October 25, 12:00 PM

                                                                 Jason's having an Argonaut
                                                                 reunion party at his Elysium
                                                                 beach house.

You think Zeus will let us
be in the Underworld at the
same time?

                                                                 Butter him up.

Dad does not like to be
buttered.

                                         October 25, 12:15 PM

                                                                  Great, Lynceus and Idas just showed
                                                                  up.

Those jerks? Punch em in
the face for me.

                                                                  On it.

                                         October 25, 1:00 AM

Did you do it?

                                         October 25, 1:30 AM

Castor?

                                         October 25, 1:45 AM

You alright?

                                                                 HAAAAA! I totally did it.
                                                                 Punched them both right in
                                                                 the face!

Awesome!

                                                                 They started talking all this crap
                                                                 about us taking that herd of
                                                                 cattle and Phoebe and
                                                                 Hilaeria from them.

Which were they ticked
about the most?

                                                                 The cattle. :)

Did you get a KO?

                                                                 Yeah! Just like you did
                                                                 with Amycus back when we
                                                                 were Argonauts.

Nice!
