    Summary

    AU. Orpheus and Eurydice are apartment neighbors; she moved in first, then him, the floor above her, and she gets into the habit of listening to him play through the ceiling. Their schedules don't line up well enough to cross paths--she doesn't actually see or talk to him until five months later.

    Hermes runs the bar across the street and the Fates are street vendors in the same spot; watching Orpheus and Eurydice out on their balconies becomes their entertainment. Hades owns the building with his wife, Persephone.

    A collection of one-shots.

    Summary

    Hades has turned cold, and he makes those up above go in and fight for their lives. Winning means glory, losing means eternal overtime in Hadestown. Orpheus and Eurydice go in together and plan to emerge together as well. Down below, the gods are trying to work their own problems out. Up above, the fights are even bloodier. In both places, a revolution is brewing. People get mean when the chips are down.

    Summary

    A song in five parts of Orpheus's pleas for the world to wait.

    ~*~
    As a young dreamer, he feared he would never know a love greater than his song. Orpheus saw her one sun-struck morning, and he all at once realized that no, he would never know a love greater than his song, because she was his song. As she spoke, his melody soared, and as she smiled, the lyre strings he tightroped across, snapped beneath his weight.

    ‘Wait for me,’ he pleaded to Eurydice, ‘I have so much I still need to show you.’

    Summary

    “La, la la la la la,” she tried, but the sound felt metallic on her tongue. She didn’t have the crooning voice that her Orpheus had, and she was getting more and more frustrated as time went on.

    “Fuck, fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck,” she sang to the same tune, before she finally put the lyre down in front of her, frustrated at her lack of ability to play.

    ***

    Spring is just around the corner, and Eurydice struggles with Orpheus' birthday present.

    Summary

    A series of one-shots that take place in a canon divergent world where Orpheus doesn't look behind. It's not all happiness though, in fact there is a lot of angst.

    The first chapter serves as the linear beginning of the series, but otherwise the chapters aren't in chronological order necessarily, or at least they're open for interpretation.

    Summary

    Eurydice hated her birthday.

    It wasn’t so much about the fact that she had made it another year — she was always thrilled about that. But it was where her birthday fell on the wheel of the year that always made her want to disregard the day in general.
