    Summary

    In the post-Trojan War Bronze Age of ancient Greek myth, an enigmatic new God with a gift for deduction is sent to put a stop to the lifesaving ways of a warrior-prince with healing hands. But suddenly Prince Iaon's moved in with the Consulting God and they've started solving crimes together. And what follows after that is... most unexpected.

    Warning! Contains: quite a lot of Greek wine, embedded casefic, explicit industrial-strength smut (starting around ch. 19), the birth of firearms discipline and other freeform but entirely justified anachronism, invisible hand(maiden)s, body parts (some still splendidly, if not magnificently, in use), and True Love tested to destruction… and final triumph.

    Just posted: Ch. 32. The Consulting God and Prince Iaon begin delving into the case of forty-nine women who may have been sent to Hell by mistake. Can even the God manage to prove their innocence?

    ETA: Till We Have Cases is a Holmsie nominee in the Best Longfic / Slow Burn category. If you've enjoyed this fic in the past... voting closes September 1st.

He's determined to return to Greece and find his family, to rejoin them again.

    But he catches the eye of a brunette during a fight and Venus decides to curse them, crossing their stars. A story of freedom, love and inner daring.

    (Also, Greeks and Romans need to sort out their religions. "Killius, I swear to Zeus-" "Wait, you mean Jupiter, right?")

    Summary

    The year is 445 BC, Athens is rebuilding after decades of war, and the city is tired. Peace has been won, but at a cost, and civic unrest grows worse with each passing day. Wealthy families suddenly find themselves ruined, the disenfranchised are expected to provide for a city that denies their rights, and the old men sit in their assemblies and mutter amongst themselves.

    Bilbo just wants a comfortable life; all Thorin is after is the right to a home. If they can put aside what separates them, they might just succeed.
