    Summary

    In which Zagreus is more Persephone’s son than Hades’ and Persephone is more Chaos-bringer, than the wife of Hades.

    Or: In which, Zagreus is born in the land of the living, becomes the god of blood, figures out how to be the prince of the underworld, and courts Death. Not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    Following a trip to New York City, Hermes, Apollo, and Dionysus decide to introduce the new play about the gods to the others: Hadestown. The catch is that they must go to the Underworld, considering that Apollo hopes that their Uncle Hades would be kind enough to let certain shades join them. The question is: how will the King and Queen of the Underground, along with the two souls that changed them forever, react to the way their story is being told?

    Summary

    Eurydike knew immediately which one the god-born was. Him and his swagger weren’t hard to miss. He was sitting at the furthest table on the terrace - the one closest to the sea - and he was dressed in a black bomber jacket and sunglasses. The breeze played through his dark curls; his eyes were hidden under sunglasses, but were no doubt some brilliant colour like all the god-born. He had his legs stretched out and his feet propped up on a battered guitar case. Silhouetted against the waves, it made for a handsome picture.

    Eurydike scoffed. It was late spring. It wasn’t cold enough to need a jacket and it wasn’t bright enough to need sunglasses.

    --

    Just a modern retelling of an old story.

    Summary

    Hades burdened Orpheus with the task to investigate "brutal disturbances" up in Asphodel, leading to solving not only murder but also mysteries and a threat more dangerous than anticipated. Orpheus obliged, mostly due to the reason to see Eurydice more often. The murdered shades will know who was repsonsible for this. It shouldn't be hard to bring these matters to an end and regain order in the Underworld, right?

    Right?

    “To know how it ends
    And still begin to sing it again
    As if it might turn out this time
    I learned that from a friend of mine”
    Road to Hell (Reprise)

     

    Or, maybe, just maybe, if Calliope keeps singing his song her boy will get a happy ending.

    Summary

    Two lady thieves who would give each other the world if they could.

    A smuggler with an eye for magic.

    And a golden apple, ripe with the promise of a lifted curse with only a bite.

    Five people, four curses, one heist.

    When Gods walk among men, anything is possible.

    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

    "No. He's not good enough for you, my dear. Did you see him? He may have been trying to cover it up with his fancy suit, but I can see through that. He has all the markings of a badboy - someone you don't want to get involved with."

    Persephone doesn't understand why people can't just leave them alone.

    OR

    5 times people make assumptions about Hades and Persephone's relationship + the 1 time they prove them wrong

    Summary

    "Hades raised her hand to silence him. She pitied the boy, she truly did, she's had to spend half the year without her husband for centuries and it never once got easier. But, but she had Zeus kill Apollo's son for raising the dead, and while there's nothing they can do to her for breaking the rule one time or one-hundred times, it's the principle of the thing."

    Or, the Tale of Orpheus and Eurydice ft. Genderbent Hades and Persephone

    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

    For almost a full year, I’ve been writing lots of baby drabbles for Orpheus and Eurydice’s children but I haven’t posted them because of the lack of context. So I’m just going to give the context at the beginning of every chapter and post them for fun.

    This is an extension of sorts to my baby series that I posted a while ago.
