This is Part One and Two of Persephone Quest by Neiges! The photo is mine that I took over the weekend! The flowers were beautiful and it felt very much like Persephone!
It all started like this.
Persephone had been kidnapped and spring and summer were never to come.
Of course, Nick, being the god of snow, he decided that winter wasn’t going to come, either. See, Nick was the god of snow. So he was in charge of winter. So winter wasn’t going to come until Persephone was out of the pit. Demeter was really down in the dumps. Literally. She had imprisoned herself in Hephaestus’ junkyard until Persephone was rescued and she was happy.
So Camp Half-Blood arranged a quest to save her. Unfortunately, Persephone was imprisoned in Tatarus, so a god along with two demigods had to save her. Fortunately, they knew the perfect god. Nick. He along with the two demigods would save her. The two demigods would be Rebecca, daughter of Nike (goddess of victory) and Jojo, daughter of Apollo. Gavin, son of hades, would be helping out (which Jojo wasn’t to happy about, they had a rivalry.) Since he knew the underworld he would navigate us to Tartarus.
And nobody knew what lay ahead.
Because in Tartarus, Typhon was reforming.
It was thought that there could be no worse quest. Chiron started them off with a pat on the back. Dionysus gave them all goodbye kisses. It was awkward. Percy let them borrow riptide. Jojo would use her half steel, half bronze dagger, Nick would just use his godly power, so Rebecca would get riptide. Then they were all going to use one weapon.
Hazel. She would lead them to the ruins of the Labyrinth to the entrance to the underworld. The Lethe was in their way, so Hazel would cut a short tunnel for them then return to the overworld. Gavin guided them through the underworld to Tartarus.
“Bye, sunshine. Bye, Gavin. Tell yourself I hate you,” said Jojo.
“Bye, Camp Half-Blood. Bye Gavin,” said Rebecca.
“Bye, Olympus. Bye, Gavin,” said Nick.
And with that, they let go of the edge of the pit. Bye, overworld. Hello, Tartarus.
