    Summary

    “They just don’t understand us,” she whispers, her eyes faltering down to her bloodied hands. “We’re different, that’s all.”

    She looks up at the statue of the terrifying figure of Hades, the god of the Underworld. The moonlight glints off of the marble as the cool air sweeps like a balm over her skin, the hair on her body standing on end.

    “They say that you’re a monster,” she smiles, her eyes shining under the stars, “but I don’t believe them.”

    -

    or, in other words, a retelling of the story of persephone and hades, with a twist.

    Summary

    Hades was ancient so he should have known more than the five things He knew right now.

    1. He really should have learnt Russian
    2. There was a horse loose in the Mental Asylum/hospital he was held in
    3. His Wife had vanished and she definitely wasn't here.
    4. His Godly powers weren't working
    And
    5. The world was going to end, which is unfortunate as that meant he would work overtime and his date night was ruined.

    Hades, God of the underworld, not being a dick, Husband of Persephone and Trainer of a three headed dog called Spot, has been kidnapped by the Russians in the height of the Cold War. Of course the Russians forgot that Hades isn't Thanatos, the actual god of death, and as such people are still going to die. But they can still use Hades's power to end the world. It's up to Diana to save the world again...
    And then deal with a very strange Uncle, Eccentric Half siblings and Zeus still being a d**k.

    Dedicated to Joanna White on Pintrest.

    Summary

    The Greeks were very lenient in their ways. The only line they knew must not ever be crossed was to clash with the Gods, who are prideful in every way known to man. The tale of Queen Niobe should’ve been adequate proof of that. But the Gods also crave love, and they share man’s desire to own beautiful things. That is probably why Melantriche found herself in her current predicament.

    Summary

    First, he came down to me. Phoebus Apollo, in all of his fiery grace, descended from Olympus and stood before me. He scanned my body with eyes that struck fear deeper into me than Achilles’ spears could ever hope to. He did not speak at first, only stare.

    He said something. Motioned towards my head.

    I could not hear him. My blood pounded in my ears, far too loud to let any sound in.

    I was afraid. Not for him, though he was flame. Gods of suns and healing probably burn always, I thought.

    Summary

    “Welcome to the crib!” Apollo threw his arms out as he lead his brothers into their new living room. Their not so glorious or godly living room. “It is… small,” Dionysus commented. He didn’t feel the need to hide his scepticism. “It is authentic,” Apollo explained. “If we are going to pretend to be mortals, we need to live like mortals. We couldn’t very well get a penthouse apartment, now could we?” “Why not?” Hermes asked as he closed the door to the apartment behind them. “I have a penthouse in Chicago. It is nice.”

    Summary

    The situation is…not good. Zeus is being a stubborn fool, Poseidon is feeding into it by arguing with him, and Hades is angrily trying to get the two of them to just shut up already. Which they aren't likely to do--at least, not anytime soon, that is, even with Hera and Demeter attempting to mediate. So...yeah, not good. But then it gets worse.

    It gets worse because now Athena's butting in, and Ares is encouraging her, Artemis is doing the exact opposite of that, Apollo is loudly making sure he has medical supplies handy, just in case, Hermes is fetching whatever Apollo doesn't have on hand, Hephaestus is working, and Dionysus is just generally being drunk and disorderly.

    It gets worse when the hearth flares, suddenly excruciatingly hot, and Hestia--kind, longsuffering Hestia--looks as though she's about to start screaming bloody murder.

    It goes straight into worst case scenario when her eyes are suddenly blazing as brightly as the fire she wields, and the Big Three drop like stones, all the way across the Throne Room. It goes way past worst case scenario when she tells the remaining gods that they'll be next if they can't get their acts together.

    Summary

    Eccola, la sua condanna: era un fiore che non poteva crescere.
    Di fronte a quel giovane, il volto illuminato da un sorriso fiero sulle labbra cesellate, Giacinto si era sciolto e aveva perso tutte le parole, ogni facoltà di pensiero. Cosa poteva dire? Cos’era giusto dire? Cos’era il caso di dire proprio a lui, per far sì che restasse ancora un minuto, dieci, anche per sempre se lo desiderava?
    I suoi occhi celesti, quei capelli di grano ondulato raccolti forse in una coda, forse in uno chignon che non vedeva. La pelle ambrata coperta da una camicia chiara e dei jeans che fasciavano i muscoli delle gambe. Pareva una statua.
    E Dio, era bellissimo.
