    A sacrifice and a lover leads Macaria to face her Fate as a goddess of death.

    An exploration of the story of how Macaria becomes Makaria the Goddess of Blessed Death and somewhat also an exploration of some of the gender issues that can be found in ancient myths, specifically Greek ones such as in Herakles.

Great for those interested in learning more about lesser-known gods, goddesses, legends, and myths as well as more famous ones, great for fans of or those looking to learn more about art and history!

    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

    A trade deal, a successful negotiation, that was what her father was known for. He dealt with alien communities that would help their galaxy. His agency, Olympus Outreach, handled such situations with ease. Yet it is this organisation, Tartarus Inc. that proves to be a thorn in their side. Or is it perhaps their leader, one Lord Loki, who drives a harder bargain that most?

    That is, until he sees her and demands but one condition upon which to settle this agreement. She is to be his wife.

    It is her mother, the head of Demeter AgriCorp, a galaxy-wide organisation, that throws a wrench into the plan. She demands that her daughter remain with her for half the year.

    Being raised in the light and among nature, will she adapt to the shadows of her new home? Will she learn to see through the eyes of her heart and see the beauty offered by the dark?

    Summary

    The world is cold and dark, summer is short and winter is long. The seasons are out of tune - out of time, all because two gods have forgotten the song of their love, but there's hope. Maybe this time, it'll go just right.

    Summary

    What happens when you combine the magical world of Harry Potter and Greek Mythology? You get witches and wizards who fulfill the roles of gods and goddesses and straddle the Wizarding and Immortal or mythical realms. The plot begins during the summer between "Half-Blood Prince" and "Deathly Hallows."

    'Lost in her thoughts, she didn't notice the rustle of wind behind her and the shiver that ran down her spine until someone grabbed her. The coldness of the hands made her think of a dementor, but Hermione couldn't think much more about that as her stomach dropped and she realized she was flying on a broom. Her eyes were closed, too afraid to look to see how high she was.

    “Scared, Granger?” a deep voice growled in her ear. It was familiar, but in the gravity of the situation, she couldn’t place it.

    Daringly, she opened her eyes, enough to glimpse where she was being taken, a strong arm secured around her waist. Her world went black as she saw they were headed straight for the ground.'

    Summary

    “You are a naiad?”
    The nymph rolled their eyes. 
    “You are a cow? Or a man. Both?” Their tone was sarcastic. Simon didn’t notice. 
    “I am a man,” Simon frowned. He hadn’t tucked his tail very well- it twitched free as if it wanted to argue with his statement. Simon pretended he didn’t notice. “You don’t… seem like a nymph.”
    “And what, pray tell, does a nymph seem like?” Sneered the nymph.

    Or,
    Orpheus & Eurydice au, but Simon is a minotaur and Baz is a naiad.

    Summary

    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.

    Billy Batson was 10 when he was chosen to be Shazam's Champion and wield the power of Zeus.

    It was kinda weird for him, considering the guy's his uncle.

    Yeah, his dad isn't too pleased about his day job.

    Summary

    (NOTE: Hercules: The Animated Series - Hercules and the Tapestry of Fate AU, but with a darker turn)

    When Hades decides to alter the Tapestry of Fate, everything seemed fine. Wonderboy was out of his way, despite being alive, he was the King of Olympus, and no one could stop him. Everything was peaceful and perfect for him. Indeed, he did maintained some things... But at what cost?

    What he didn't knew is that letting Zeus and Metis conceive Athena, plus taking the child away and use her for his own personal gain and power would soon result in his demise.

    ------

    Despair.

    It was a rare, yet curious term the child read. She repeated the word in her mouth several times. Trying to grasp the meaning of it. Indeed, she knew what it meant. She perfectly knew what it means...

    Yet, why was she so drawn to it?

    NOTE: This is inspired in Danganronpa and one of AngelicaR2's fics. So far, it's a rough draft. Feedback is appreciated!
