    Summary

    After Ares' war and Demeter's winter has ended, Hades informs Thanatos that he is to take a vacation and he is to take it several weeks over the year off. Thanatos is then informed that Zagreus is to take his own vacation at the same time.

    Persephone has an idea and requests Thanatos' help.

    Summary

    “I sympathize with being put in such a situation, Meg, but forgive me...I don’t understand how this is relevant to the topic at hand.”

    “The way you were summoned,” Meg said simply. “I felt that as well, just as you say. Every time Zag chooses to initiate that clause of the pact, I can sense it.”

    The soft hint of sympathy in her tone only made the dread within Than spread.

    'Oh, gods,' he thought. 'What have I done?'

    'Major Character Death' both in the sense that Death is the major character, and also, y'know, Zag. (a.k.a. this is what happens when hearing that gong when I didn’t expect to during a Pact of Punishment run gave me feelings, apparently).

    I added the graphic violence tag warning just to be safe; it can be skipped without missing much context if you just want the ThanZag fluff!

    Summary

    "Thanatos hears a lot of last words. It’s a side effect of his occupation—his domain, his obligation. Unfinished sentences, partial phrases, and cut-off words echo in the back of his mind constantly. They usually come right before he has to make his appearance on the mortal surface, serving as a useful reminder of his appointments. But really, he always knows where he needs to be, so the stream of doomed consciousness usually falls to a background drone.

    Which is why an all-too-familiar voice stands out from the rest of the chorus and strikes through Thanatos like a spear."

    Thanatos listens to Zagreus die over and over again.

    Summary

    [ EDIT ] On hiatus for an undetermined length of time — until I figure out just WTF I’m doing. ;;

    ‘Devotion’ — The House of Hades & its Fiery Prince, seen through Thanatos’ eyes …
    — ‘Oh, Thanatos! Meet your new little brother, Zagreus.’
    … She put the baby in my arms, and I was shocked by his warmth and weight. His wide eyes looked up at me as if in wonder. His little feet glowed bright orange like coals in a fire.
    I felt a sort of glow inside of me. ‘How?’ was all I dared to ask …
    Out of curiosity, I touched one of the glowing feet with a gentle finger. It was very hot, right on this side of a burn, but it didn’t hurt. My touch seemed to tickle him and he let out one of his little baby giggles. Surprised, I felt a smile tug at my lips. Mother frowned slightly, and took the baby back. My body felt very cold suddenly.
    Had I done something wrong? …

    Summary

    Megaera knows well her place in the Underworld. She understands the shape of her responsibilities, the walls of her limits, how she fits within them. But things always shift when someone else gets involved—even Thanatos, who is as dutiful as she.

    So add Zagreus to the mix, and things really get complicated.

    Summary

    As the God of Death, Thanatos was accustomed to collecting the souls of the dead. He was the gentle death, delivering the souls of those who pass peacefully, unlike those ushered through by Ares or Apollo.

    Mortals were predictable in that they feared Death, with his scythe and his toll. So why was it he who was fearful now?

    In which Than has to collect a certain Prince from Death by Natural Causes.

    Summary

    “Zagreus told me he didn’t like my hair,” he said. “He is extremely bold. Most everyone else is afraid of me. Most mortals are just afraid of me. No one ever speaks to me like that. No one speaks to me at all.”

    Summary

    “It’s true then, Mother?” Thanatos whispers, low enough that Lord Hades can't hear. It’s barely a question at this point, more of an acknowledgement of the growing ache in his chest.

    “Zagreus wants to leave The Underworld?”

    Zagreus’ departure from Thanatos’ point of view.

    Summary

    Zagreus dies. It's become a fact of life, as such it is. He fights his way towards the surface, over and over and over. And sometimes he dies on the way, killed by the foes he meets. But even should he make it, past all the gates and their guardians, his fate is to always die.

    And it hurts, every single time. It hurts, because Thanatos sees his pain. He feels it, every time Zagreus dies. It makes him want to scream, rage against the decision his lover and his lord made. What kind of job is that, to constantly die? Why does Thanatos have to witness it, every single time?

    He is Death, and for the first time he resents it.

    Summary

    Death is impartial. Death is unchanging. Death only takes.

    Thanatos never forgets himself nor his station. But he's inexorably drawn to the life in Zagreus like a moth to a flame. And if he ever strays from his path, if it's for that—if it's for him—Thanatos is willing to try.


    A character study where Thanatos's love for Zagreus is for the ages.

    Summary

    Zagreus stops in front of him, head tilted up to look at him. There’s a cut on his face, and without thinking Thanatos reaches out, runs his thumb over it to soothe it shut so at the least he does not bleed.

    Zagreus is still looking at him, quiet.

    “Zagreus?”

    “You came,” Zagreus finally says. He smiles; it makes all the flames that curl around his laurels spark. There is such a soft and tender pleasure in his words. “After all this time.”

    Summary

    There is nothing admirable about being a stubborn fool, Thanatos thinks. If this godling wants to die so badly, then Death will oblige. He brings down his scythe and watches him bleed out again and again. He has reaped thousands of souls. This one will be no different.

    In which Zagreus repeatedly fights his way into the underworld in search of his kidnapped mother, and Thanatos is sent to stop him.

    Summary

    “I never really know exactly where I stand with you,” Zagreus continued, in a gentle- a painfully gentle voice. “But I know how I feel, and I'd rather be up front with you, even if it means risking our relationship, such as it is.”
    “Our relationship?” It came out as a scoff. Much more of a scoff than Thanatos intended. But his breath didn’t seem his own to regulate just now. Something was pressing relentlessly on his chest. And even so, Zagreus barely seemed to react. Barely seemed to notice. Like he never seemed to notice. “It wasn't long ago you were prepared to throw it all away while making for the surface, if you don't recall,” Thanatos said wryly. It still stung, the way Zagreus had greeted him as some sort of potential adversary when he had finally found him. But he didn’t look at him like that anymore. Certainly not now.

    Summary

    Zagreus sees Megaera and Thanatos relieving some tension in the garden of the House of Hades, and gets it into his head that he's just another casual distraction for the god of Death. When Zagreus fails to emerge from the Pool of Styx after his latest escape attempt, Thanatos searches for him.

    Summary

    Of course, the son of a goddess able to summon a garden in a lightless realm and the Lord of the Underworld would be the one capable of planting a heartbeat — a wanting yearning aching heartbeat — into Death Incarnate. And of course, Thanatos would realize he was in love with Zagreus the instant Zagreus was determined to leave him behind forever.

    Summary

    Thanatos does worry about his brother, he really does. He just has a funny way of showing it. Luckily Zagreus is there to subtly point this out to him, and Megaera is there to not so sublty give him a final push to put it right.
