Amateur theory here. Happy to be corrected.

You pass the event horizon and the entire rest of the universe occurs blueshifted indefinitely directly over you. Any event horizon, regardless of the mass, is uncrossable in a finite amount of time. The amount of time it takes for a black hole to evaporate is finite.

You become part of the black hole long enough to become its hawking radiation, and disperse your energy among the...well...

Nope. You only appear to be part of the event horizon to a distant observer. You actually travel to the center of the black hole and are crushed and die. It is inevitable because all paths inside a black hole flow to the center. It is actually impossible to not reach the center. Even if you change direction you reach the center. It is as inevitable as time itself. Trying to go out of the black hole is like going back in time and so is impossible.

You are confusing what a distant observer sees to what happens to you.

Is there not also an infinite amount of time passing in the universe above the event horizon, instantly evaporating the entire black hole according to the internal observer?

Or do black holes break causality?

No man, you fall in and you die. The black hole still is there. Sorry that is how it works.

Time is slowed for you and the black hole. So it will live on far far after it has crushed you into a pulp.

You are confusing reference frames. If your time is slowed, the black hole's time is slowed relative to an outside observer. So you are experiencing the same time. Not sure how it could age more quickly than you or more quickly than the outside observer when it is also experiencing time dilation.
