    Summary

    Persephone stumbled backwards and froze, caught in the gaze of the strange dark woman before him, her crimson gaze penetrating and unflinching. Hades silently eyed the sun-kissed, messy haired man before her to decide what to make of him. There was something genuine and disarming about this young god she found sleeping in the flowers, gaping up at her in awe... Genderbent (Female Hades, Male Persephone)

    Summary

    Just another sweet retelling of the Hades and Persephone story, in which Persephone is a young goddess trying to find her place in the world, and Hades is the lonely Lord of the Underworld, dedicated to his duties and his doggo, slowly giving more of himself to his duties and slowly wasting away... When Demeter is ordered by Zeus to bring her daughter, Kore, to Olympus for the festivities of Hephaestus and Aphrodite's wedding, the Corn-Mother is naturally anxious. Persephone steals a few moments to herself and wanders the vast palace complex, where she stumbles upon Hades who had also been seeking solitude amid the revelry. The two spark up a conversation, and neither is quite the same afterwards...

    Summary

    Unseen and unheard, Ganymede moves through the palace of Olympus with the ease and inconspicuousness of a servant, or at least the gods and goddesses of Olympus do well at playing their part. What reasons have they to worry from a lone human amongst immortals?

    Raised in luxury and tasked with keeping Zeus's goblet and plate full of nectar and ambrosia at all times, Ganymede has never wanted for anything under the watchful eyes of Zeus and Athena, never feared even the volatile Ares, trained as he is at being invisible.

    Until now.

    Summary

    Hades’ tight curls hid most of the toddler’s face, but Demeter caught a glimpse of deep brown eyes – his – and an aquiline nose – his – and lips as red as crimson – even that, his.

    Summary

    Hades and Persephone. (CONSENT)

    Woven into fairytales.

    Bad at description.

    Except:

    As she grew, Persephone was the apple of everyone's eye. Day began and ended with her as even Eos, Helios, and Selene thrilled in hearing the little princess's joy at seeing the morning sun come up and going down at night. And Hades would hear of it all at their return. After all, the Titans were doomed to live down under. The king of hell would hear the sibling Titans ramble off about Zeus's dear daughter, and Hades would listen with a distant face, yet unknown to even him, his heart craved to hear of all the things the Titan siblings told about Persephone....

    Summary

    It was different this time. His hand reached out, cupping her face. Persephone shut her eyes when she felt his lips touch her forehead. The waterfall that guarded the mouth of cave roared, though its sound was a distant and gentle rush in her ears. She felt his warm breath tickle her face, his scent of earth and sweat filling her nose. He sighed.
    “Do you want this?”
    “Yes,” she answered.

    Summary

    This summary thing is definetly subject to change because I suck at summaries so this is it for now. Basically this is all in goldie’s perspective. It also just covers the beginning so you won’t be seeing some of the other gods yet.

    Summary

    There is a tension in the air like the first raindrops steaming off the bitumen, on the brink of a summer storm: the sky holding its breath. Her husband says, "You keep comin' back. Every time I think I've finally cut the tether, you're there again."
    Maybe, just maybe, everything that falls down eventually rises.

    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

    (In an epic voiceover) This season, witness a classic love story like never before. Set in a conveniently confusing time and place. With thrilling action adventure fighting badass stuff; 4th wall breaking; lots and lots of 4th wall breaking; cheesy romance with extra cheese; memes; smut? Probably not, as Author-chan is a prude who’s not very comfortable writing that; but did I mention 4th wall breaking? Staring beloved mythological characters trying to be funny and #relatable to an audience with whom they are already insanely popular to a point where their story doesn’t really need another unoriginal retelling but will get one anyways cos they’re public domain dam it! Hades and Persephone~ now just a click away from you.
