    Summary

    Centuries after the destruction of earth, the Knights of Ren remain behind on the planet’s unlivable surface, an ancient order tasked with reaping the bodies sent to the ground from the ship that orbits above the dead planet. These solitary survivors on the underworld have become feared and hated by those who live in the skies, believed to be masked harbingers of Death…but their master, Kylo Ren, believes that one of the sky-walkers may hold the key to healing his land and bringing humanity home.

    Summary

    Hwang Jiyu reaches Camp Half-Blood covered in dirt and blood, her cheeks and arms slashed and stinging. It doesn't help that she enters through the worst place possible: the woods, where she finds an unimpressive looking boy and three giant ants. Why did her father have to be the powerful Olympian god of too many things she had already forgotten?

    Summary

    "In years to come, mortals would write novels and sonnets about this chapter in the story of the gods—how the god of the skies and his embittered brother, the lord of the Underworld, made arrangements for the date and place when the latter’s chariot would arrive to fetch the maiden.

    How the fair young goddess was sitting peacefully in a field beneath the foot of Mount Krakenburg, gathering flowers for her beloved elder sister, when the dark chariot materialized to collect her.

    How the goddess, unaware, was pulled into the chariot, scattering rose petals in her wake as she was stolen away to the Underworld."

    Or: the story of a massive misunderstanding, an accidental abduction, and how the goddess Corrin fell in love with the lord of the Underworld.

    Summary

    Princess Andromeda was the daughter of King Cepheus and Queen Cassiopeia and lived a plush life in her Midgardian kingdom of Aethopia. The princess grows up to be beautiful, one of the prettiest girls in all the land. Many gentlemen callers come to the kingdom to ask for her hand, but Andromeda refuses, only for her parents to arrange a marriage between her and her uncle, Phenius. The young princess is heartbroken, because after all these years, she still thinks her dark prince will come and save her.

    This is the myth of Andromeda, retold by me. All the names are the same, the characters are different.

    Summary

    I originally wrote this for my Latin class as a reception of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth (yes, you got that right, I wrote fanfiction of my OTP for school), but it could also be looked at as an alternate ending for when Fitz tried to rescue Jemma from the other universe in season three.

    Summary

    Taehyung was born into nature. As the God of spring, he is destined to give life back to the earth, spending his days making the flowers bloom and the meadows flourish. All his life, he’s been convinced that the Gods of the underworld can only mean disaster; they bring death in their wake, which completely contradicts the work he puts forth in order to keep things alive. Still, he finds no reason that he can’t get along with Jeongguk, who is nice despite the deadly world he was born into.

    Your origins don’t define you - this is what Taehyung believes. It’d be so much easier if their parents thought the same.

    (Or: The Persephone/Hades!au that no one asked for)

    Summary

    It's a Greek Goddess Clexa AU with fake marriage, fam.

    //

    When Demeter!Abby meddles into her daughter's life once again, Persephone!Clarke has enough and flees Mount Olympus in hopes of finding shelter in Underworld - the only place where Olympian Gods' influence does not extend to. Enter Hades!Lexa, one of The Mighty Three, The Ruler of Underworld, and dog enthusiast. Will Clarke be able to strike a deal with the seemingly cold and ruthless Queen of Death?

    When Fury!Anya pesters Hades!Lexa about taking a much needed vacation, she begrudgingly agrees and travels to the nearest woods. She didn't exactly expect to stumble into a young runaway goddess of spring. She also certainly didn't expect her to propose an odd deal, and she really didn't expect to go along with it. Yet, here she is, about to fake-marry the daughter of Demeter.

    Anya was about to have a field day with this.
