Summary: Percy has lost all of his siblings and his father in the war. But with a cunning plan and illegal time travel, he may just get them back.

This story is unusual in a number of ways. It's Percy-centric. It's Percy-centric time travel. It's an AU where the near-misses of canon... weren't near-misses. I'd forgotten how many near-misses there were. It's also symmetrical: the time travel happens in the middle of the story; it comes full circle.

I like how Percy is portrayed here: desperately loving his family, missing them... and meticulous enough to make such a plan work.
