making up for lost time

Work Text:

Piper McLean died in the fight against Gaea, don’t you know.


Forget Leo Valdez and his bronze dragon - Piper went down to the ground and didn’t get up again. There was a ceremony. A burial shroud bedecked in the Aphrodite colors, colors that never seemed to fit Piper all too well in the end.


Jason Grace said a few words - it was really only a few. 


But when Piper came back, it wasn’t Jason that she ran into the arms of; it was Annabeth, and when she kissed her, the world felt ever newer. 


Death smartens you, don’t you know.
