    Tony Stark has been known for many things, but stupid is not one of them.

    Summary

    !!! IMPORTANT NOTICE !!!
    This story is being published on AMAZON. It will be available from May 31, 2021. If you're reading, please hurry up, it's going to be deleted here on AO3!

     

    Born in the 90s, university student, short and with lots of human friends: Persephone really has a terrible divine curriculum. Mortals don't worship her, Gods don't invite her to their mundane events, and all in all it would be fine for her. Or at least this is what she thinks.
    Everything changes when at a conference she meets Hades, God of the dead. His too is a heavy baggage: three hundred thousand years of age, seven feet tall, at least twenty titles on his name. But he's also the only one understaning Persephone's passion for law subjects, as well as the only one who seems uncomfortable among the other deities as much as her. How couldn't they get along?
    They find themselves intertwining their destinies and working together to issue a controversial judgement, collaborating in a trial of souls in the court of the Underworld. And so, halfway between irony and seriousness, fairness and rigor, life and death, this is the (semi) modern reinterpretation of a myth that has never stopped being told.

    Summary

    Nacida en los '90, universitaria, bajita y con muchos amigos humanos: Perséfone realmente tiene un pésimo currículo divino. Los mortales no le rinden culto, los Dioses no la invitan a sus eventos, y eso funciona para ella. O al menos eso es lo que cree.
    Todo cambia cuando conoce a Hades, Dios de los muertos, en una ponencia. Él también tiene sus problemas: trescientos mil años de edad, siete pies de alto, al menos veinte títulos en su nombre. Pero también es el único que comprende la pasión de Perséfone por las leyes, así como el único que parece tan incómodo como ella entre las otras deidades. ¿Cómo podrían no entenderse?
    Ellos entrelazarán sus destinos y trabajarán juntos para resolver un juicio controversial, colaborando en una investigación en la corte del Inframundo. Y también, entre la ironía y la seriedad, la justicia y el rigor, la vida y la muerte, esta es una (semi) moderna interpretación de un mito que nunca dejó de contarse.

    Summary

    Alexandria Silvestre [Latin for Woods] was born in the small city of Polis raised by her parents Maximus and Becca Silvestre.

    Lexa had taken an extensive interest in her father's profession at a young age and started training with the fierce warriors. Female Gladiators were people that were of an extreme rarity but they fought in the Colosseum with men as their equals.

    When a civil war struck, Lexa was prepared to fight alongside her brothers and sisters but what she was not prepared for was to lose her family and lover Costia.

    After the war, she decided that Polis had nothing more to offer her now that she had lost everything she had ever loved. In her grief, Lexa and her best friend Octavia set out to Rome to fight in the Colosseum and Lexa feels if death befalls her, it would not matter.

    The Emperor meets Alexandria personally after a match in the arena, and it seems like the perfect opportunity to set Alexandria in his daughter Clarke Gryphem's personal guard.

    However, upon meeting Clarke Gryphem, Lexa is absolutely blown away by her Empress' beauty. She continues to fight in the Colosseum to free her mind of her demons, but her Empress clouds her mind and she now fights to live.

    Summary

    After a plague sweeps through the noble houses of Cambria (Ancient Wales), Branagh decides that a life of slavery is better than the crushing loneliness of depression. However, once he's shackled and sold off to wealthy Romans, he realizes that his freedom may have been more precious to him than he previously thought. But it's too late, and now under the rule of the retired general Caelius, Branagh has to contend with the most annoying man he's ever met -- the general's layabout son, Marius. Though Branagh can see fragments of his old personality returning when he spends time with Marius, he cannot help but resent the man's abrasive and flirtatious nature. But all is not well in Caelius' household, as old rivals return with deep grudges, and a bloodthirsty beast stalks the idyllic hills of Italy. Is a monster hunt Branagh's ticket to earning his freedom back?

    Summary

    After I wrote my initial Apollo and Cyrene fic, I did a little bit more of digging and reading around. Turns out Cyrene also had a passionate romance with Ares as well and they had a kid too, the famed King Diomedes.
    Also, I wanted to show Ares a bit more love. He's underrated AF in mythology and in some romance stories.

    Summary

    (Set after the events of THE AVENGERS and IRON MAN 3, so act like the plot lines of the net movies never occurred.)

    The Other seeks to torture Loki for his failures during the Battle of New York. The Frost Giants seek a new monarch ever since Loki murdered their king Laufey. Steve Rogers cracks and makes a friend online that he relates with very well. How do these three intertwine?

    Let's just say it takes two sisters on a trip to the US from Norway to shake things up. One demigoddess and one mortal. An immortal bastard with self-esteem problems and a hedonistic teenager without boundaries.

    Summary

    I really like Blood of Zeus's characterization of Apollo, and seeing as how we've canonically seen him with Hyacinthus, I was curious about how he would interact with other major mythological figures.
    Also, I think the myth of Apollo and Cyrene is underrated.

    Summary

    I'm currently rewriting an old fanfic, that I don't quite like anymore. I have changed some stuff both in the plot and in my characters, so I'm rewriting this whole damn thing.

    Ares and Athena start out hating each other, but circumstances force them to grow together over a long time frame.
    But they are immortal gods, who have all time of the Kosmos.
    And as they slowly learn to actually know and understand each other, they grow closer to each other, until they are able to form a deep bond between their souls.
    Before Athena knows what's happening, she realises, that love doesn't need to be physical.
    Also the Olympians being protective and a tight-knit family, when push comes to shove.
