    Summary

    Keith, a trader from a river on the edge of civilization, is captured and sold into slavery, ending up in the heart of one of the great kingdoms of antiquity, the Keft of King Minos. His ultimate destiny: to be tossed into the legendary Labyrinth, located inside a mountain on an island archipelago called Qhera. Alongside seven youths and seven maidens offered in tribute from a backwater city, he is expected to meet his end-and, if he's especially unlucky, the Minotaur, a half-man, half-bull abomination said to eat human flesh.

    But nothing about the Labyrinth, or it's legendary monster, is what it seems. Keith himself bears a burden that may ruin those who get too close to him. And no one has accounted for the the role the gods might play in the events about to unfold-for in the center of Qhera's waters lies a terrible secret that will change the world, and those who live to tell the tale, forever.

    Summary

    Promising a great reward for her success, Queen Hera sends Quince on an epic journey across the mortal lands of Greece. But when her travels uncover painful truths – and even more painful enemies – Quince realizes she has become an unwitting participant in a power-struggle between the unforgiving, unforgetting Gods of Olympus.

    Or: a very familiar slow-burn plot, in which our heroine repeatedly tries – and fails – to make it from Mount Olympus to Taenarus, the entrance of the Underworld.

    Takes place after the events of Hades. (I really want a sequel.)

    Summary

    Fujimaru Ritsuka and his servants travel in the world of omniscient reader's viewpoint to get the holy grail as it creates a singularity? That disturbs the probability. I do not own either of the stories, namely Fate/Grand Order (made by Kinoko Nasu) and Omniscient Reader's Viewpoint (made by Sing Shong.)

    Summary

    Time has a habit of making everything come full circle and justice? Justice tends to fly away from closed fists.
      
     
    The story of an officer drowning too heavily in murderous vengeance to still be considered good, and an assassin struggling too hard to grip his humanity from the icy cold fingers of death to be simply cast-off as evil. Will Lauren and Kieran be able to handle the truths that they uncover, or will they succumb to the stifling guilt that seems to have taken up the air?  

    Or will they find remnants of something else lingering in the winds of change?  

    Season 1 compliant. Season 2 divergent.

    Characters and vision belonging to Sophism and Ephemerys. Castles from their original work made into air by yours truly.

    Summary

    What do myths, fairy tales and folklore give us modern mortals? A taste of the past, our ancestry, and the hopes of the ages. People never change, and history repeats itself. Still, the world wants life to be happier, better, and kinder. One cannot help but be drawn to ancient stories that impart some wisdom in the midst of neverending madness. Trigger warnings apply in general, because (hello!) Greek mythology is a trigger warning all on its own.

    Summary

    The story of the undying love of the Underworld between Hades and Persephone in Hades' perspective. That's basically it. I'm making it up as I go along.

    Quick notes: I don't own any gods. I will be reading different versions of the myths that revolve around Hades and Persephone and trying to combine them into a weird potion. Kore is Persephone before she is kidnapped. I will be making up some stuff just for the sake of more plot.

    Aka, Hera writing out all her frustrations and thoughts into a journal and basically recording her life. Includes annoying gods, cheaters, immortal-killing chairs, and miles-long graphic rants (bleeped for better enjoyment but the basis and summary would be there) that are about said stupid annoying gods who have nothing better to do than disrespect and annoy their queen.

    Summary

    Orpheus would’ve been fine with wandering the world alone forever. In fact, he’d been expecting it. Then again, much like the Spanish Inquisition, no one ever expects the Argonauts.

    Or: Hadestown’s ending ruined me, so I wrote a comedic road trip sequel to make myself feel better.
