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.


We have all got to exert ourselves a little to keep sane, and call things by the same names as other people call them by.

Watercolour, roughly 11x17, Queequeg and Ishmael on the morning after their totally-not-a-wedding. Update to an earlier piece (note the new positioning of Queequeg’s arm! now 60% more tender!). Yes Queequeg’s tattoos were freehand. Did some experimentation w/ lighting, and also forgot to tape down the paper before I started painting, because I am an idiot, which makes this piece hella wiggly and kind of unsellable.

"Upon waking next morning about daylight, I found Queequeg’s arm thrown over me in the most loving and affectionate manner. You had almost thought I had been his wife."


Hazel and Frank stumble upon each other after their respective sex eds. 

They got a happy ending despite all their very eager friends who has good intentions indeed, but not always the best solutions concerning sex ed. You just keep on slaying monster, guys.

Hazel’s and Frank’s sex ed adventure.


Four girls and a boy had a crush on Percy and y’all are trying to tell me Piper is a Mary Sue

Well I wouldn’t put them exactly in the crush category but Reyna arguably made a pass at him and Kinzie definitely did

I need all of these hanging on my wall as soon as humanly possible.

…and the world is so inconveniently constituted, that the vague consciousness of being a fine fellow is no guarantee of success in any line of business.

Another PJO tumblr theme! (after Percy`s)

I had a very clear idea of what I wanted for Frank`s background, so I went ahead and made it rather quickly. I think I’ll try and do 12 theme so that I can switch every month or so. I`d do the 7 heroes +Nico+Thalia +Reyna+ Grover+???

I’m missing one, anyone has a suggestion? Maybe Rachel?

Again, feel free to use it as a tumblr theme or just a background as long as you leave the credit there. You can also edit, just leave my name there.

Useful Crafts - Chapter 4 - Minutia_R - The Heroes of Olympus - Rick Riordan [Archive of Our Own]

In his defense, Leo was spending most of his energy a) running and b) being scared out of his mind. He’d barely survived Mr. D’s fan club the last time, when he’d been on his home court and they’d been underage maenads. These ones seemed older, more vicious.

But what really freaked him out was remembering how badly he’d wanted to join their party and let himself be ripped apart, that time at Camp Half-Blood. It had seemed like a great idea. It had felt exactly like one of his own crazy, brilliant ideas. And if it happened again, Piper and her charmspeak weren’t here to snap him out of it.

So he didn’t realize what was wrong until Annabeth suddenly stopped running in a room full of television screens mounted on a framework. He almost crashed into her. Then he spent a hopeful second thinking that Annabeth would let him dismantle this—it had a lot of good parts he could probably use. (Even if it was Art and probably worth a bajillion dollars.) But Annabeth said, “They’re not chasing us. This is bad.”

Chapter four is up, y’all!

(For those of you seeing this for the first time, Useful Crafts is the one where Rachel, Leo, and Annabeth go on a quest to the Guggenheim museum around the same time that Son of Neptune is happening elsewhere.)


That’s it guys, the conclusion of the “Jason finds out” mini-arc. ^___^ 
Links to part 1,2 and 3, as well as the Chronology of a friendship masterpost
This particular dialogue completely wrote itself in my mind when I first read a post from someone thinking Nico would hate Jason because of what his father did, and then I got carried away with this little story and it ended wayyyy longer than I first intended. ;p
I genuinely don’t think Nico would judge Jason based on what Zeus/Jupiter did. Let’s not forget that the first thing Nico did after discovering the truth about his past and his mother’s death was to convince Hades to forget his resentment and join the Olympians in the war against Chronos. 
I might not have made that noticeable enough in the way I draw them, but to me this mini-arc happens a couple of years after Gaia’s defeat, so Jason has had the time to break through Nico’s walls and they already share a real friendship by the time the events of part 1 happens .

Thanks to Fimyuan for beta-reading the comics for me, to Cece for her willingness to help, and to all of you who answered my questions about posting multiple pictures ^^ 

Yaay it updated!  I’m so happy!

And it’s nice to see Nico being so relaxed and sensible.
