4 Works in Daeira (Ancient Greek Religion & Lore)
Daphne, trapped in a relationship with Apollo, suspects his involvement with Persephone is not quite what he portrayed.
Post-rescue of Persephone, Hecate has assumed temporary leadership of the Underworld and has capitalized on its technological infrastructure to collect evidence against the Olympians.
Persephone's rape will be discussed in this work, but I don't plan on going into much detail.
Non-canon, no FP spoilers to worry about. :-)
There will be multiple chapters, including a romantic interlude (eventually).

"Who are you?" she said, barely able to hear her own words as her heartbeat thrummed in her ears.
"This is your dream, remember? Tell me who I am," he said smiling, absently coiling a tendril of her long brown hair around a finger.
She narrowed her eyes at him. "If this is my dream, oneiroi, then answer my question. Who are you?"
He was hearing her true voice: that of a natural ruler. She watched him smile at her fearlessness, even as he loomed over her. He leaned down and whispered in her ear, "I am your lord husband."
I know you have made your own decisions, daughter dearest and I know that my words mean very little to you. But I also know what men can do to a woman’s mental state and so I gift this small ream of paper to you, pressed with flowers made in your first spring and bound in the leather of the cow that was slain to celebrate your birth in the hopes that it reminds you of home and all the hopes and dreams by which you were born. Never forget who you are and never lose yourself to love. Use this paper as you see fit and I pray it will see you through many trying times. Know I am always here for you, my beautiful Kore. Even if you may feel like I do not understand, I do. I will always be here to listen to you and to offer my advice, what little it may mean.
From, Your Dearest Mother
- Part 1 of Persephone's Diaries
30 Jan 2016
The marriage of Hades and Persephone blossoms and their mysterious grove in the world below thrives…
…while the sunlit world withers.
Demeter holds out in Eleusis, pushing both mankind and the gods to frozen starvation in order to reclaim her daughter. The newly married rulers of the dead must reach an accord with Persephone’s mother to stay her deadly course— and come face to face with sacrifice, responsibility, and the balance of power among the gods.
Destroyer of Light concludes the erotic romance begun in Receiver of Many: a battle of wills among the gods is writ large across the dying earth, a cruel sorcerer-king faces his trial, and the King and Queen of the Underworld realize a destiny that the Fates alone could have foreseen.
