Cold Solace
by Anna Belle Kaufman
When my mother died, one of her honey cakes remained in the freezer. I couldn’t bear to see it vanish, so it waited, pardoned, in its ice cave behind the metal trays for two more years.
On my forty-first birthday I chipped it out, a rectangular resurrection, hefted the dead weight in my palm.
Before it thawed, I sawed, with serrated knife, the thinnest of slices— Jewish Eucharist.
The amber squares with their translucent panes of walnuts tasted—even toasted—of freezer, of frost, a raisined delicacy delivered up from a deli in the underworld.
I yearned to recall life, not death— the still body in her pink nightgown on the bed, how I lay in the shallow cradle of the scattered sheets after they took it away, inhaling her scent one last time.
I close my eyes, savor a wafer of sacred cake on my tongue and try to taste my mother, to discern the message she baked in these loaves when she was too ill to eat them:
I love you. It will end. Leave something of sweetness and substance in the mouth of the world.

I still think it’s hilarious that Onawa will literally have candles and a fireplace burning in the middle of a Texas summer. Like she can’t handle the cold whatsoever, but she can withstand fucking 4 million degrees in her house just because she likes fire

So y’all remember how Aphrodite’s face kinda changes depending on who u find attractive? Like Percy saw that one teacher or actress he had a crush on and 𝖆𝖓𝖓𝖆𝖇𝖊𝖙𝖍 (𝖒𝖞 𝖖𝖚𝖊𝖊𝖓).
But...
What would happen if she was confronted with a guy who’s gay? Like Nico, would he see a female version of Will or would she change into a man?
Help me, my family’s worried, I’ve been spending to much time on this equation

in the nico solo book i just wanna see Will have an argument with an asshole and then the next day said asshole has a really bad cough and Will is like “oh wow what a coincidence :) karma i guess:)” as forshadowing for him figuring out he has plague powers is that too much to ask

I JUST HAD TO SAY THAT I LOVED YOUR MERMAID STORY. OMG ITS LITERALLY SO GOOD. I’ve never been able to find a good story with mermaids and with you even adding not knowing social cues is just *chef kiss* I look forward to your next chapter! 😍👏💞💞💞
I honestly just love the idea of someone from another place entirely being smart in their own way, but being a complete dumbass when it comes to the others way of life.
Y/n: I can survive the brutal ocean while maintaining secrecy and still enjoying life. But also what the actual fuck is language?

Nico: I don’t have any emotions. I don’t form meaningful relationships with anyone apart from dead people. Happiness? I don’t know her, I only know pain. Pain is actually my middle name, after death and suffering. Everyone I’ve ever loved is dead, I don’t have anyone I truly can trust-
Will:
Will: I’m about to end this man’s whole career
