    Summary

    All the semi-incestuous tensions of the Omicron Lambda Upsilon sorority come to a head at the winter formal, their biggest social event of the year: wherein sorority sisters Venus and Min(erv)a backstab, catfight, and occasionally unite against a common foe, and also there is hatesex. Every fandom needs at least one college AU! (All knowledge of American sororities is exclusively based on watching a handful of episodes of Greek. No engineering students were harmed in the making of this story. My sincere apologies to any women's lacrosse players.)

    Summary

    So beautiful. The most beautiful. No one else more beautiful. It was a lie.

    The night he pierces me with his spindle, I fall asleep. The wall of thorns grows up again around me. I sleepwalk through this new life, through all the duties of a good Akhaian wife. I weave, I spin, I press the olives into oil, I submit to my husband, and I sleep through it all. The household around me may as well be frozen in time for all that I interact with it.
