Hi there! I'm Minutia. I write fanfiction, draw the occasional fanart, and burble on about fannish things. I also do other things, but not with this identity.
hazel actually getting to meet her father with her friends and her brother all round her, every last one of them terrified that this is it, this is the moment they have to say goodbye, pluto is going to have to take hazel way for good now
instead pluto looks at hazel dispassionately and says, “if i’m not mistaken, you were judged worthy of elysium, were you not?”
"erm," hazel says, looking back at him nervously. "well, yes, technically, but—"
"then what," pluto continues, "is the problem? the souls judged for elysium are given freedom to choose rebirth. did you not want rebirth?"
"no!" hazel said. "i mean, yes. i mean, no, i did want rebirth, that’s what i picked"
pluto nods. “good. because once you choose rebirth you’re chained to another mortal life until you die, and killing one’s demigod children is the sort of heinous act i leave to my brother.”
no one bothers pointing out that hazel was judged worthy of elysium but sent to asphodel instead. no one mentions she’s only alive again because her brother defied their father to bring her back.
no one cares about a liberal interpretation of the laws of nature, frankly, because it means the lord of the underworld is willing to turn a blind eye and hazel can stay with them.
hazel minds least of all.
Sometimes I think about older benevolent billionaire ceo Hazel Levesque who is really intelligent with finances as well as having a keen eye for business and seeing through deceptions. More importantly, she does charity work at soup kitchens on the weekend and donates a large portion to it herself so people can eat the good food her mom always wanted Hazel to eat as a kid. She also donates money to various charities as well as to failing schools and art programs so young kids interested in art like she was have a chance to use and develop their skills. I really need everyone to think about this, too.
Oh, is this the one where Hazel is thinking of going into business so Rachel is like, if you want an internship or something I know some people? And they spend their free time working on arts programs for underfunded schools. And when Rachel introduces Hazel to her dad it’s like
RACHEL’S DAD: OMG it’s the daughter I always wanted
RACHEL: I love you too, Dad, by the way Hazel and I are dating
RACHEL’S DAD: Yes finally you make a life choice I approve of, this is so much better than when you were interested in that Percy dude
RACHEL: A good point, well made.
HAZEL: It’s such an honor to meet you, Mr. Dare. Can we have a long conversation about ethical land management and corporate practices?
RACHEL’S DAD: And grandchildren?
HAZEL: … Fine.
