    Summary

    My very own spin on the classic tale of Hades and Persephone. Summary: Demeter was all that he had ever wanted, but with her sudden disappearance, Hades returns to the cold and aloof god that he once was. One day, a new goddess is presented to the court during one of Zeus's infamous parties. She is Persephone, goddess of Spring and Demeter's daughter?! Hades wants nothing to do with her, having felt betrayed by his one true love. Persephone wonders why the god always turns a cold shoulder to her whenever she enters the room. Will the two ever come to a mutual understanding of each other? Or will Hades's broken heart get the best of him?

    Summary

    Psyche had been taught love, now it was time for her lesson in pain.

    After striking a deal with the goddess Aphrodite, Psyche completed her three tasks to earn the right to speak to her God husband, Eros once more. But the chance was taken from her the moment Aphrodite caught her cheating and Psyche was forced to turn from the temple and away from her husband.

    Left to wander the world alone for an eternity, Psyche vows to make the best of a bad situation. With the help from an unlikely source, she finds herself moving on in life as she leaves behind her royal past for the future of a common individual and soon her pain just becomes another familiar friend.

    It isn't until her world is completely upsided by the arrival of her husband, Eros, who claims he had been searching for her for the last several thousand years and the painful memories slowly resurface. Will Eros find out the ugly truth of Psyche's punishment? And will she be able to reveal over two thousand years worth of secrets?

    A modern telling of what happens after Psyche completes the trials set by Aphrodite and veers completely away from the original ending of the myth.

    Summary

    The love story of Hades and Persephone is overlooked and this fic will be retelling the beautiful tale...but there's gonna be important themes--such as self identity and entering adulthood--tied in with the fic's mature content.
    Give it a shot--it's worth a try.

    Summary

    The crack of a thunderbolt, the splitting of the skies, the wrath of a spurned god- hellfire against damning waters once more. Again, he was bound and judged, in the exact same scene that had played out eons ago. She loomed over him, brows creased in rage, blonde hair falling back in rolling waves.

    “Hello,” he said, in that tongue he hadn’t used in oh so long, “Hera.”
