    Summary

    (it was a broken dream right from the start, bless their tortured tangled hearts)

    *

    "Oh, Orpheus.” Persephone breathes, seating herself beside him. There's real sorrow in her voice this time. He forgets that sometimes she does care. “It's worse this year, is it?"

    "It's been nearly a hundred years since it happened.” He tells her. He's sure she’ll get it. “I'm more than double the age I was when it happened, and I'm still alive. I can't make sense of anything."

    Summary

    Pops wants Hermes to keep an eye on Hades, and let him know what he’s up to. But Hermes has never been much of a tale teller (least not on demand) and besides, Hades is a hard one to watch. Hermes can think of no other member of their family who shuts their damn mouth and keep to themselves as much as Hades does.

     

    Apart from his wife, no one else knows Hades as well as Hermes does.

    Summary

    Orpheus walks the surface world alone, while beneath his feet Eurydice works, and works, and feels nothing. Hades and Persephone sit silent in their mansion, and outside Hadestown rattles to the same beat it always has. But change is coming on the wind, slow and steady, threatening to overtake them all. There is light in the darkness after all, rushing towards them like the headlights of an oncoming train. And soon, all of Hadestown will be singing their melody.

    Summary

    "Keep your wits about you," Hermes whispered to her. "You'll sing for the boy again if you do."

    Before she could say anything, Hermes slowly drifted away like a quicksilver grey cloud, as bright as Hades had been dark, and then in mere seconds, he was gone and she was left in the dim old hall with only the god of death for company.

    Summary

    That’s the way Persephone's world works – no endings without new beginnings. Endless sorrow tangled with endless joy. She doesn’t know what to make of this mortal suffering, of the way it cripples even the strongest of men and never promises to heal.

    Maybe if she were Orpheus she’d try to understand it with a song. But she is not Orpheus, she doesn’t understand anything about music other than the way it makes her feel alive like only love and wine can.

    It dawns on her that there is no reason why it should be this way.

    “Will you teach me?”
