ONE MORE trans camp half blood meme before I go to bed: The down with cis chariot
honestly all of these messages were golden and im keeping the rest For Now but this really and truly needs to be shared. the down with cis chariot is such an iconic idea im just imagining it like….
clarisse and will ride it around camp like they’re freakin hunger games and it’s absolutely amazing. they hold hands in the air, arms spread with serious, grim expressions on their faces. this is more than pride. this is power. this is a display of dominance, a display of hope for all the campers like them.
the first time, everyone was astonished, but after a while, their joy rides just kind of became expected. the highlight of summer is always seeing those trans beauties take their ‘down with cis’ chariot for a spin, flags of all non-cisgender orientations flying behind them proudly. usually, it’s carried by pegasi, occasionally by a ton of other trans campers who even get to take turns with clarisse and will on the chariot, and one time…
oh man. chiron totally pulled it. he raised his hands in the air and ran like the wind, mr. d laughing in genuine joy as the entire camp watched. he was wearing a party pony pride parade ‘68 shirt, one hand holding a genderfluid flag, the other holding a trigender flag. this was only once, and campers who werent there dont believe it ever happened. it becomes another camp tall tale, something people speak of in curious, confused whispers as the chariot pulls through the camp once more, pulled as usual by pegasi. chiron refuses to say whether or not it happened. mr. d keeps quite too; he likes to watch everyone wonder. but clarisse and will…. they know. oh, how they know.
they speak of it like something sacred and beautiful, the way chiron speaks of elysium to frightened first-year campers. sometimes… people even believe them. and they know, with all their heart, that it was beautiful. - will
