    Summary

    "Please consider what I’m about to say. Think of it as you return to your mother. You must put as much thought into it as you can. Will you? Please, promise me you will.”

    “Yes! Whatever it is, I’ll consider it.”

    “Eventually Lord Hades will have mercy upon you. He will. I know that must sound strange—the most severe of the gods showing mercy where his kindred won’t—but it’s the truth. The Olympians are more… unreliable. The only way I can see to protect the Underworld and in turn you and your mother is this: Bind yourself to me.” His hands tremble. He brushes his thumb along the crook of Zag’s throat, so very sweet, even when he’s rigid with tension. “Wed me.”

     

    Raised by his mother far away from both Olympus and the Underworld, a strange series of events leads Zagreus to meeting a faceless, nameless Chthonic god.

However, once Simonides sees his intended victim, he begins to have misgivings. Prince Tyrannus might have offended the gods with his very existence, but all Simonides can see is how beautiful and lonely he is.

    Or, a very loose interpretation of the Eros and Psyche myth.

    Summary

    He braces, tensing, waiting for the dagger to pierce his breast. He feels his heart rabbiting behind his ribs, hears the blood rushing in his ears, he closes his eyes as tears well in them, he can feel the pressure, that knife’s edge over his heart. His jaw clenches as he waits for the blade to strike true--

    One breath, two, a rush of air, the high, unyielding sound of a blade swinging through the air, something wet and warm splatters on his cheek--

    There is silence for a moment.

    The knife is gone. There is light behind his eyelids which was not there before, when the cultist had crouched over him, and then they are shaded again. He can’t move. He can barely breathe, he once again finds himself on the edge of a knife, trying to pull himself into consciousness.

    “Are you all right?”

    Summary

    “And you have a name?” Nate asked.

    “I told you that I’m occasionally a formless collection of energy and you’re worried about my name?”
     

    “If a formless collection of energy plans to share my bed, I’d like to know its name. It’s the minimum requirement for entry."

    There was a pause. The annoying thing about an unseen companion, he realized, was that you could only judge them by the words they spoke and the times they didn’t. It made him wish he could see his face, at least a little. Maybe just an outline in the moonlight. But he was like a dark void on the other side of the bed, an almost glaring nothingness.

    Finally, he cleared his throat. “I’m Brad.”

    “Nice to meet you, Brad. I’m Nate. And I’m going to sleep now. Don’t kill me before sunrise.”
     

    A questionable retelling of the myth of Psyche & Eros.

    Summary

    A monster feared by all creation, who had the power to control the hearts of mortals and gods alike. A human boy who only knew how to run away from the sorrow in his life. They seemed worlds apart, but once you look closer, they mirrored each other: two souls with gaping holes in their hearts, filled with their own type of loneliness. Perhaps Love never comprehended how to be loved himself. 

    Hyunjin is the god of love, or as people know him as, Eros. When one fateful day he rescues a human boy by the name of Seungmin from becoming a sacrifice, he doesn't know what to expect. He starts to experience things he would never have lifted a finger to do before, and finds himself wrestling with his cursed self and Seungmin's mortality.

    Seungmin is a human who after the loss of his parents at a young age, moves from town to town, struggling to survive. When he is rescued by none other than Eros himself, his fears and nightmares start catching up to him. Walking a fine line between a world of humans and gods, it seems his thread of Fate is finally ready to be placed on the spinning wheel.

    Summary

    In a world run by beings more powerful than you may ever know, the last thing you expect is to have one show up at your home and insist you romance her son. Technoblade certainly did not expect that visit, but it was the best thing that could have happened, and though it caused him pain and death, it also happened to be the catalyst for the happiest days of Techno's life, and he would not trade it for anything. Anything is worth it when it comes to love, after all.

    Summary

    A retelling of the myth of Eros & Psyche.

    An ancient artifact awakens in Magical Britain. Drama ensues. Hermione Granger doesn't have time for rubbish like having her marriage arranged by a semi-sentient cup, only it seems she doesn't have much choice in the matter. How is she supposed to help replenish the population of magical Britain when she doesn't even know her husband's name, and she's never seen his face? And is she actually falling in love with someone who might as well be a ghost? Of course not. That would be ridiculous.

    Herein contains: a library as a bribe (a bribrary, if you will), too much tea drinking, and more nonsense than you can shake a wand at. Enjoy!

    Summary

    The blonde twiddled the arrow in his palm, the bow suddenly feeling uncomfortable in the other. With a sigh, Dream strapped the bow to his back, and lifted the magical arrow to his cheek.

    Already, Puffy’s son began to feel a little different. He knew immediately that he’d made a gigantic mistake, but he didn’t care. Dream looked through the window once more, and saw the crestfallen prince looking just as dejected as always in his gigantic bedroom. He admired his delicate features, harkened at his gorgeous form.

    But that curiosity still danced within him to see that amazing smile - and just like that, Dream knew he was in trouble.

    Summary

    She knows him. Knows the valleys and the roughness of his hands, the safe harbor of his mouth, the lapping of his waves when they mix with hers. She knows him in fragments and, of those fragments he gives to her, she loves each one as if it were a whole. But loving him in fragments... this she can not do.

    In which the Mandalorian and the woman he trusts enough to share the safety of his own son (and his bed) with, learn to shed one piece off of their respective armors at a time, through a love of patchy darkness, unsaid caring and faltering steps.

    Summary

    Remember me in the golden fields as the seasons changes, in the blue ponds where we had once played.

    Allow the God's to speak softly of us.

    In the days hereafter, in the shadowy temple of our own minds, I shall forever remember thee.

    Summary

    He should hate Zhongli, he thinks. When he is everything that the Oracle had described him to be.

    A monster. Bad for him, something he should run away as far as he could from, as fast as his legs can carry him.

    So why? Why did butterflies invade his stomach and heart clench when he leaned into kiss him, when he holds his hand when they made 'love', when he told him he loved him?

    Work is heavily inspired by the story of Eros and Psyche. Major plot differences from there!
