    Summary

    Yet another drabble I may work with into a longer work, I like to post them when I get an idea.
    Basically an ancient greece au, take place in Thebes while the city is growing and gaining more power. Ryo is the son of a great scholar and currently trying to become a poet, though he finds himself in a major writer's block. He always stares at the soldiers from afar, but has no idea what to do when one suddenly shows up at his house to deliver a message to his father.
    Going to keep their usual names, but may change a few to Greek depending if I work more with this au, let's just say it's in ancient greece but they just have their usual names.

    Summary

    The gods are locked in war and Themyscira, a city crafted by the Five Goddesses as a refuge for women, slips inexorably towards disaster as its queen clings to peace with a desperate and blind tenacity. It falls then to Antiope, daughter of Ares and sister of Hippolyta, to fight for her people as the gods tear the world apart around them. At her side, guiding her, is Menalippe, a wanderer with the blessing of Hermes to divine the future--or so she claims. Together, they must save Antiope's people. Failure cannot be an option.

    Ancient Greek Wonder Woman AU inspired by Hesiod's Heroic Age and the Peloponnesian War.

    Summary

    After hearing a disturbing prophecy that her future husband will be a 'faceless monster, whom things neither living nor dead can resist,' Christine does anything and everything to escape the fate that has been given to her. What is fated and what is chosen, however, are not always so different, and the line between 'monster' and 'man' often runs very thin.

    ANCIENT GREEK AU, with lots of mysticism and lore, prophecies and monsters, fear and longing, love and hate-- all that fun stuff, but all with a healthy dose of the normal Phantom that we all know and love.
    --
    Inspired by the Myth of Cupid and Psyche and the legend of Orpheus and Eurydice.

    Summary

    She's never stepped foot off of the small, isolated island of Jakku. She's never considered leaving, never once thought about stepping off the shores to visit the mainland. She never thought about attacks, about the Empire ruling just beyond the waves, about the Emperor and his soldiers. She didn't even think, not about the Emperor or his cruelty or his consort back on the mainland who has no idea he's about to befriend a woman who's never known a world outside of marble columns and an old statue.

    Summary

    Euhemerism [yoo-hem-uh-riz-uh-m]
    (Noun)
    1. (Often initial capital letter) the theory of Euhemerus that the mythologies of various gods arose out of the deification of dead heroes.
    2. The theory that mythology is derived from history.

    The war has been waging for four years now. Two ancient cities who can't seem to stop themselves from comparing sizes. And you? You're at the center of it.
    After being kidnapped by the Thebans, you, the one and only princess of Orchomenos, are about to be forced into a marriage with a member of the royal house in an attempt to end the war on a somewhat peaceful note.
    So? Who will you pick? The rich magistrate with a cold exterior? The young actor with a broken history and a large ego? The twin who likes to joke, or the one who seems to have two personalities? Maybe the younger prince who like to play games? Or maybe the only girl who likes to clean? The choice is yours.

    Summary

    “You saved me,” she stated, as if she didn’t believe it herself.
    “I did,” Kara replied. “But are you okay? Are you hurt?”
    “No,” Lena shook her head. She stared at Kara, as if memorizing her face. “I’m fine. You were just in time”
    “Good.” Kara said.
    “It would be a shame if someone so beautiful was hurt,” Kara didn’t say, but thought it.
    They looked at each other for just a second too long. Kara couldn’t help but notice just how stunningly gorgeous Lena was. Finally, she turned to walk away, knowing that even leaving wouldn’t be as weird as continuing to stare at Lena’s face, and her jaw, and the way her eyebrows were furrowed together, and how her lips were pressed together in careful consideration, and how her hair was pulled away from her face in a loose braid that framed her face, and how the brilliant green of her eyes stood out against her pale skin.

    OR

    Lena and Kara are gay messes who run away from their problems - until they're forced to face all of them at once.

    Summary

    "During the pinnacle of drastic times and underneath the interminable hellish arrays of war, a Savior shall emerge. Solitary, hapless, unknown, he who faces detest in the eyes of thy common man yet his courage withstands, as he knows greatness is imminent. The malevolent will fear him. The righteous will honor him. The God's will bless him, for he has been patiently Awaiting Glory."

    Orochimaru, tyrant of the Persians' unruly Kingdom, has declared war throughout the lands of Ancient Greece. Numerous onslaughts from their incomprehensibly colossal regiment of barbarians has left a gaping wound in the remaining cities. A Prophecy has roused in the midst of this heinous bloodshed and suffering, word spreading quickly across a broken but not yet defeated Greece. The prolonged desolation brings corruption ensuing in Sparta's once formidable Empire, and although diminutive in numbers compared to their enemies, they continue their pertinacious ways and grasp onto this Omen as a final beacon of hope.

    A final testament to their Spartan will.

    A final prayer in their darkest hour.
