    Summary

    And the way the shadows on the wall are cast
    Look like a twisted apparition from the past
    And all the memories come flooding fast
    A wilderness you kinda miss
    But were taught you ought to cut it back
    So you shut it out
    You shout it down
    Until you're all white-knuckled
    You got a lot to learn, if you'd settle down
    Let be what is, let be what isn't
    It's a natural world in which we're living
    And if you let it alone, it will surely grow
    Just leave it alone, child, and let it go

    based on grow by the oh hellos

    Thus the 'of darker soil' universe.
    (a series of one-shots in a universe where SBI and other mcyters are Greek gods.)

    Summary

    My take on the origins of the Oedipus story. Laius, a Theban royal, kidnaps and rapes Chrysippus, the bastard son of King Pelops of Pisa, which later curses Thebes to love the events of the story of Oedipus. The play is lost to time, so I thought why not write a sexy dark fic based on it.

    Summary

    Strangely enough, Izuku meets Charon before he dies. Charon is both everything and nothing he expected.
    Contrary to what the myths would have like him to believe, the Underworld is a gentle, gentle place. It's a resting place. A home for all those that are lost and still wander. It teaches him that death has always been, and will always be, an ending with many faces.
    (The fruit of the Underworld is forbidden because it seeks to keep. Izuku does not mind. He likes being wanted.
    The first bite of pomegranate is tart and sweet and tastes like relief.)

    Summary

    Greek/Normal Universe AU

    here is essentially all you need to know:
    Dream is Achilles
    George is Patroclus
    they died at the same time but dream got them out of the underworld so now they're immortal
    starts as an ancient grecian mythology world but switches to a normal universe midway? don't question it...

    chaos ensues...

     

    "Dear reader, it’s important you know that the future of these two boys will not be all serenity and saccharine kisses on sweating foreheads. Life comes and life goes, we make friends, enemies, and lovers. George and Dream were all three. But in the end, it doesn’t matter how they spend these lifetimes; in betrayal or peace, halcyon or hailstorm, they spend it together, related in some way. When they place each other's heads on spikes outside the palace of their own yearning, a rose will always be positioned between their lips. Old lovers seem to be that way; complex and deceitful. But oh they make the best of stories. They write eachother love poems that disguise themselves as death threats. Obsession is the greatest form of love: is it not?"

    Summary

    Persephone goes up to Argentina to visit her mom for spring as always, and Hades decides he wants to see what spring is like (and maybe wants to spend some more time with his wife) and joins her. At first, while Demeter feels awkward about being around her daughter's husband who she does not know well, she eventually realizes Hades knows nothing about spring or agriculture and decides she must show him the wonders of the flora of Earth in spring. Persephone is just happy to spend some more time with her husband, and all the while Hades is desperately stumbling through one disastrous social interaction after another.

    Basically a modern-day Greek mythology fic about family, marriage, and spring. Takes place in Argentina which I know nothing about, I apologize.

    Summary

    “It sounds as if you already have everything you need to live a long, healthy, prosperous life, mortal.” Jeongguk flinches at the bite in his voice. “I would not curse it by asking for something that will only end in pain.”

    Jeongguk leans back on one leg, crossing his arms defensively and pursing his lips. “I may be young still, but I’m old enough to find love.”

    Jimin chuckles at the boy’s naivety. “You misunderstand,” the god tuts. “Age is not the downfall of lovers."

    --

    Jeongguk, a mortal, has everything going for him - strength, wits, beauty and a kind heart. The god Jimin will not allow Jeongguk to sabotage such gifts with something so destructive as love.

    Summary

    Zhongli was nowhere to be found when Ajax snapped out of the vision that stung, together with the Hunter that stank of the deepest hell.

    In a blank sense of emptiness, he blinked once, twice, then realized that since when his kin had impaled him through the lower abdomen.

    With mere hand.

    "What an embarrassment you are, Ajax." Tartaglia hisses in venom; the predator appreciating his struggling in vain from above.

    Summary

    Namjoon meets a group of peculiar people while working as a curator in the Greece pabellion, at one of the most famous museums of France. It was never too weird, not even when his co-workers knew things related to his dreams, or to his childhood (which he had never mentioned), or when they knew exactly what to say or do in order to calm him down. However, Seokjin Kim is a very weird guy.

    A very weird guy that makes butterflies flutter in Namjoon's ribcage.

    Or; Seokjin is an immortal demigod who knows every tiny detail on the history and myths of Ancient Greece.
