    Summary

     -

     In which, the Fates can be unnecessarily cruel, and Zagreus learns extensively the brutality of mortals and their desperation regarding their futile pursuits of divinity.

    Summary

    “You sound like a mortal.” She said, with the faint glimmer of amusement in her eyes. Zagreus chortled too, but then fell silent. Nyx gave him a knowing look. “What is it, my child?”

    “You said the curse is tied into my godhood, right? What if…” The words tasted unnatural in his mouth, a blasphemy before they could even take shape in the air. Zagreus coughed them out regardless. “What if I could shed my divinity? What if I became a mortal?”

    --
    Or, despite being a god, Zagreus keeps running out of time. A "Zagreus Becomes Mortal" AU.

    Summary

    Hades is irate, Nyx is despondent, and Persephone is furious. Whose fault it is; well, perhaps Zagreus is to blame, in a way, but all three of the older deities have misstepped, misspoken, or misunderstood. Persephone isn't one to let those she loves remain in pain, though, so she's going to find a way to set it all right.

    Summary

    Hades never wished for an heir, never wanted a blasted child running through the grand halls of his House.
    So, when Zagreus admits he once dreamed of living on Olympus, Zeus seizes the opportunity.
    OR
    Zeus kidnaps Zagreus at the feast to be his cupbearer.
    Zagreus quickly learns this entails far more than holding a chalice for the King of the Gods.

    Summary

    Zagreus finds himself bound to a newly deceased spirit as punishment his escape attempts. As they traverse the underworld together, the two navigate the complexities of love, jealousy, while facing (and occasionally chafing against) their divinely inspired differences.

    All the while, something dark sleeps amid the underworld's ruined chambers, and somewhere deep beneath the earth, a fallen hero obliviously rises to meet it. One with gilded hands, a sharp wit, and truly horrifying number of cheesy one-liners.

    Will the pair be able to triumph over the underworld's ghostly horde? Will anyone ever actually know what time of day it is? Will Hypnos ever stop talking? If only answers were easy to come by in the House of Hades...

    Summary

    Hypnos gets dismissed from his shift because his heat is making him (and the shades) too distracted to do his job. Nyx notices that he's gone and decides to go check on him to make sure everything is alright.

    Summary

    It is night when he leaves, under the guise of an ordinary mission and with the guidance of his mother to lead him through the darkness. He does not spare a goodbye to his brother or to Megaera, both of whom he knows will note his absence but not question it, surely, because a more pressing matter takes precedence than him leaving again. They knew before he did anyway, his duties keeping him in the dark almost as much as their prince has; Prince Zagreus is gone, has run away. The difference from his previous attempts: he has not returned.

    .
    Thanatos, a paladin of King Hades, is assigned his most pressing assignment to date: find and bring home Prince Zagreus.

    Summary

    And then Thanatos became warm. He looked around, as he heard the sound of crumpled metallic paper on his shoulders, and his eyes met a pair of heterochromatic irises.

    Red and vivid green shone fiercely in the dim light, captivating by their surreal color. Was it a trick of the firefighters truck's flashing lights? Surely it was, because as far as Thanatos knew, red wasn't part of irises color scheme.

    "There you are, sir," the firefighter said as he finished wrapping him in the survival blanket. "You were shivering."

    ______

    Thanatos Nýchta is just like any other office worker, living his life with fine colleagues, fine friends, and a lovely family. That is, until his workplace gets ravaged by a fire and leads him to meet a firefighter with very uncommon mismatched eyes. Well, nothing tells him they would meet ever again, right?

    Summary

    Zagreus really wants to take care of Persephone's garden, like she asked, but everything he tries seems to fail. He asks for advice, and he learns, because the last thing he wants to do is fail his mother now that he's found her again. But he learns that the problem might be much, much bigger than himself.

    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

    Inspired by a tweet my brain has latched onto and doesn’t want to let go of
    _____________

    Soft steps pattered against the, quite frankly atrocious carpeted floor, as he followed the smell of what seemed like some of the best food he’s ever smelled. Something fried, he thinks. He passes the door before quickly backtracking, realizing that this was the source. Maybe this is weird. Is it weird?- He raises his hand to knock anyways, and waits a few moments. Before he has the chance to turn tail, the door opens.

    “Can I help you?”

    Oh, Gods. He’s hot.

    Summary

    In a universe slightly off to the left of canon, Zagreus gives up long before he reaches the surface. Now the residents of the House of Hades must figure out how to deal with the thing walking around in his skin — and the growing realisation that the boy they all knew and loved was gone.

    Or in other words, an amateur speedrunner has to figure out how game mechanics translate to real life while trying his best to fix the mess of relationships that was Hades™, amidst a growing sense of guilt for existing.

    Summary

    “If I’m going to die, maybe I could have your name, sir?” He asks softly, so polite, even in death. “I’d like to remember it when I wake up.”

    Patroclus frowns.

    “It’s Patroclus, Stranger.”

    “Well, it’s nice to meet you, sir.”

    ------

    Zagreus attempts to put the pieces of his lost memories back together after an unfortunate run in with the Lethe, but cannot forget the Stranger who held him in Elysium as he passed on to the Styx for what he thought was the first time.

    Summary

    I want to describe this as a slice of life AU about relationships forming and growing as the characters grow older, but there are story arcs and random hints at other things going on in the greater scope of the AU world? There's also pining, sexy times, and an extreme love of coffee.

    Arc 2: Winter Holiday - Ch 8-?
    ***

    Alternating POVs (Zag, Than, Hypnos)

    Smut: Ch. 6, 7

    Same AU as Window Seat, Alleyways, Texting, etc.
