Hey all! Today is Saturday, which means it's time for me and Caroline's second Percy Jackson discussion!
Today's Topic: What Would You Do If had the Golden Fleece?
Now that is a good question. For those of you who don't know, the Golden Fleece as healing powers beyond imagination, potentially even rivalling the gods' healing powers. Even poison from the depths of Tartarus doesn't stand a chance against it.
I think if I had the fleece, the first thing I would do would be to heal myself (the fleece is guarded by Polyphemus and a flock of man-eating sheep, so stealing the fleece would have been no easy feat) while travelling back to Camp Half-Blood. Obviously I'd heal Thalia's tree first, and once that was all good, I'd casually sneak off and do my stuff.
My first stop would probably be to the hospital, where I would heal the most severely ill or injured. A stop to the children's wing would be a must, too. Though I'm not quite sure how I would go about choosing who to heal first...
I think after that I would shift my attention to the environment. Cleanse brownfields (areas that used to have factories, but upon being shut down, was not properly dealt with and thus has contaminated the environment around with toxic waste and whatnot), cleanse polluted waters, heal coral reefs, and such. I'd also maybe even try to see if the fleece would regrow trees and vegetation. You never know, right?
What about you guys? What would you try to heal if you had the fleece? Let me know in the comments!
