Why does Dove own Hope?
Dove Paxton felt completely misplaced when she was on her way to Camp Half Blood, but a beautiful butterfly flew in through the window of the car and set on her shoulder. Dove always loved butterflies; they made her feel calm, and she really needed some calm right then.
Dove saw that the butterfly had taken a liking to her, and evidently Dove had done the same. She opened the car window a bit more, to see if the butterfly wished to leave, even nudging it slightly. The fragile creature just fluttered it's wings and settled onto her finger.
So, Dove named the butterfly Hope, remembering that her dad always said everyone needed some more hope. And Dove needed Hope. In the car, Dove used her dads phone to research butterflies, sad to see they had a short lifespan. Hope sat on Dove's head until they arrived at CHB, where Hope flew off, later to be found on the window sill of the Harmonia cabin. Dove had a Hecate child put a spell on Hope so that Hope would live as long as Dove, or if Dove dies young, forever. Though Hope can't die from old age if this happens, she would be just as vunerable as any other butterfly.
Hope had followed Dove around the cabin since, not leaving CHB.
Hi! Me again, Only one thing: How did Dove and the butterfly have this telepathic link? Last I checked, Harmonia's children don't have the ability to speak to animals. And, oh, where does the butterfly reside, since it's her pet?
Telepathy links are not formed just because of something someone needs, like calmness. Telepathy needs ability, and that ability isn't under the thigns Harmonia's children can do.
From what I know, butterflies don't really have a long lifespan so if I was you I would write that once Dove got to camp, she asked one of the kids from the Hecate cabin to put a spell on the butterfly so that I would live longer than a normal butterfly
First before I comment let me just apologize how late I am... sorry busy.... either way shall we begin?
As MUCH as how I would love to accept the idea of an "immortal butterfly" lets take a look from a logical standpoint. A butterfly is small thus is prone to a lot of .... stuff? that can kill it. Like a harsh wind or maybe a fly swatter? so this butterfly may be immortal but will it survive those stuff? if it does.. doesnt that make the butterfly a tiny bit OP? so how about I suggest an alternate route? make it a nymph. When I say nymph I mean animal nymph which you can do here Claiming:Animal Nymphs 101. Good luck in anything you pick :)
Took me a while to find the edit you did but and I'm willing to claim this... if you answer me one question. This butterfly is not immortal (as it can die just not from old age...which is like 2 weeks according to google) and the eggs that come from this butterfly WILL NOT produce any immortal butterflies... right? Cause I dont want suddenly "immortal butterfly" to be given out... nor do I want someone to add that the second generation of this butterfly can suddenly survive a flyswatter..
Nope. No immortal eggs. Hope will just live like a butterfly just longer.
