Ok so first things first: to this day Minotaur Hotel is the best VN I have ever played, the Story, the Characters, the amount of detail and love put into this game is nothing if not astonishing. Also the community around it seems to be so chill and welcoming. So a big thank you to everyone.
I don't know if I'm just being delusional and hoping for an Ending like this, but I could see the MC turning into a demigod after finishing Hermes' task so that he and Asterion might have a beautiful eternity together after everything that lovable minotaur had to endure by the hands of the god.
My reasoning for this is: like the Hero Herakles (after finishing his 12 tasks) with helping the Gods to get back to lucidity and power they might be greatful enoug to not only free Asterion from his fate but also grant his love to stay by his side ,so they might keep the Hotel up and running to bring shelter to those lost souls who might need them.
Especially defeating the creatures of the valley that might have powers linked to the ancient greek gods doesn't seem to be an easy task. Even when aided by our mythical friends from the hotel.
Also it is just mentioned that Humans cant be made Immortal or be made into gods, neither would apply to the likes of a demigod.
Demigods are still able to die and they are not fully fledged gods.
Another theory of mine (even if a little dark) is that even if the MC is dying of old age and he can't stay with Asterion, he (Asterion, assuming that he is freed from the bounds of the Labyrinth) might be able to choose to turn to stone, so he might rest as well at the foot of the grave of his beloved.
That might be a little far fetched, but when starting the game we do see the statue of a Minotaur resting and with time getting brittle and crumbling. Also Asterion wonders in one of the earlier chapters, if it might be possible to turn to stone when loosing your purpose and being locked away for so long.
So even if that might be a little tragic but also somehow kinda poetic and even slightly romantic, he might choose to turn to stone so he and his love might rest together. Him eternaly wathing over the grave and guarding it so his beloved master might find the peace, that he gave Asterion during his live.
The last theory is a short and sweet one but also a little tragic.
After finishing the task that the MC is given by Hermes, he is acknowledged as a Hero like Herakles, Theseus or Perseus and also granted afterlife in the elysian fields so if Asterion is also not bound to the Hotel anymore and he dies someday, they might be reunited under Asterions previous Lord, Hades , in the afterlife where they can live happily ever after. (Even in Death)
I don't know,... the thought of either of them loosing the other (even if it is human and normal to die) pains me.
Especially if Asterion is still not able to die and having to watch his true love die of old age (or illness) while he himself is again left behind to mourn the dead. That just seems so cruel after what he has been through.
I'd love tho hear what other might think about my theories or theries that the have themselves.
