Hey, I'm working on a fanfiction and was wondering, does anyone know how someone would become a Hunter?
Do any of you feel that Artemis is disregarding her duties as the god of the moon to serve as the god of the hunt because she spends all of her time tending to the hunt that she doesn't pull the moon like Apollo dies with the sun. When Helios and Selene faded they carried the Sun and Moon with responsibility and when Apollo and Artemis inherited their domains Apollo was the only one that took their duties as Sun and Moon deities seriously. Also, in the books it as never shown Artemis as doing anything with the moon unlike Apollo that carries the sun every day she spends her days and nights with the hunt and does not carry the moon the same way. Does the sun carry itself with gravity and rotation or has Artemis abandoned he post as Goddess of the Moon to become Goddess of the Hunt?
I'm writing a Fanfiction on ao3 and the plot is a little particular. By the way, I'm here now because I'd like to have your help.

I got bored so I thought about this, but when Luke came to Annabeth, asking to run away, what if Annabeth had accepted? There’s a lot of ways this could’ve gone down.
First off, Annabeth would be extremely suspicious. When nightfall would approach, Annabeth would refuse to sleep, and stay guard. Annabeth would always have her knife handy, and be ready for a pack of hellhounds or a sneaky Empousa. Annabeth considers warning Thalia or Percy, and she does just that.
Annabeth informs Percy of Luke and Annabeth’s runaway, and because of Percy’s obvious (🙄) attraction to Annabeth, he informs Chiron, who—with careful consideration—gathers the Ares and Apollo cabin.
There are three ways this could play out. One: Luke escapes, and Annabeth’s betrayal pushes him to going back to Kronos. Two: Luke protects Annabeth, and Annabeth seeing Luke’s sincerity, escapes with him. And three: The Ares Cabin captures Luke, and drags him to camp.
Road 1: Luke having realized that everyone he knew and currently knows hates him, Luke finally stomps over to Mount Tam, and accepts the offer to host Kronos, thinking it’s for a good cause. That’s it. The books play out as they do, but Annabeth is struck with a painful guilt.
Road 2: After escaping with Luke, Annabeth is more comfortable around him. She even starts to think life could go back to normal; Luke and her running forever. But a part of her knows that the past is behind her, and the only future is forward. Yet she also longs for Percy and Camp Half-Blood, and knowing that running away like this will leave her home and friends behind. For what? A traitor? But also an old friend. Annabeth knows she could wake up, a curved sword pointed at her, Luke’s face plastered with a wiled smile. She knows she could wake up to a hungry hellhound staring at its lunch. She knows the risks, and they just aren’t worth it.
After a heated discussion, Annabeth packs her things and leaves, leaving Luke to fend for himself. Whether it’s from Kronos, or some random monster in the mood for food, Luke will die, though possibly from old age. Due to this, Kronos may very well win the war, as he could’ve just chosen a new host.
Road 3: Luke is captured. Annabeth is distraught over her decision, but Camp Half-Blood cheers in joy. This man tried time and time ago to thwart the gods and destroy their camp, and here they had him, right where they wanted him. Luke is shocked over Annabeth’s betrayal, and Kronos takes this opportunity, appearing in Luke’s dream. Yet this has no effect.
After a night’s sleep, they drag him to Olympus in chains, Zeus’s judgment deciding the fate of Luke. Luke stabbed the son of Poseidon (a hero of Olympus) with a pit scorpion, unleashed a hellhound on their camp, and poisoned the King’s daughter. The evidence is pretty damming (he he). Artemis steps forward, and, like any other typical twelve year old goddess, she offers to turn him into a stag and hunt him. Artemis knows that some men are good. But this one is not. Zeus, sadly, accepts the offer.
So, Artemis does just that. Luke’s spirit travels to Tartarus (or Fields of Punishment whatever 🙄), and Kronos might win the war. Again.
But where was Thalia? Well, Thalia may help hunting Luke, as she knows some people don’t change. Or, she may refuse, and Artemis agrees with her decision and respects it. Thalia cries watching Luke die, but feels no resentment, or anger. Just emptiness. A third option, she may quit the hunt entirely. Seeing her Lady kill her old friend may send her over the edge. She returns to camp, two weeks from turning sixteen. And as she turns sixteen, Kronos uses the Labyrinth to attack camp, decimating it. Thalia’s choice of quitting the hunt was the decision for Olympus to “preserve or raze”, and the prophecy is complete. Percy is stabbed with Kronos’s scythe (a cursed blade of evil), held by Kronos’s new host, Percy’s soul being “reaped”.
Whatever happens, it ain’t good. Anyway that’s what I think would happen.
I to be honest hate the Hunt for a multitude of reasons(you can probably find them on my page) but I still find it funny that the Hunt would probably disband if they all visited a therapist. Like if they just worked through there problems with a trained professional instead of becoming extremists and utterly sexist(towards men). Like if they worked through there trauma(or if there weren’t forced to join the Hunt) there would be no hunt if they just worked through what happened in there life instead of killing men for fun.
Sense Thalia is an immortal hunter of Artemis and is permanently frozen in time as a 16 year old, does she even have birthdays anymore? Like on the anniversary of her birth now that she’s immortal, is she actually a year older even though she doesn’t look like it, or she just always 16 years old forever?
It's like she joined them simply because she was told no demigod would love her. So the one character who's single has to join a group of nomad hunters and be sworn away from a romantic life. She didn't have any other motivation did she?
Let's be honest here, she wouldn't have done that if Aphrodite had shut her pretty mouth and just minded her own business huh...
Quite frankly, that's a lot more discouraging and totally not the kind of empowerment Riordan was trying to add.
Okay, so if a girl wanted to join the hunters, but they wanted to live their life first, could they? Is there a window for jointing the hunters? If there isn’t, would Artemis de-age the female? Sorry if this is revealed in ToA, I haven’t read that yet.
