    Summary

    “Together,” Creon said. “Jocasta, Eteocles, Polyneices, Antigone, Haemon, Eurydice.” He took a deep breath. “And you and me. The only ones left.”

    Ismene looked at him. A week ago she would never have thought that after everything, out of everyone, she would be left with Creon to pick up the ashes. But here they were, alone in the aftermath together. Fate was a capricious god, but if it would take the whole world away, at least it had left them each other. 

    Shortly after the deaths of Antigone, Haemon, and Eurydice, Creon and Ismene talk about what happened, what they've learned, and how to live in the aftermath of family tragedy.

    Summary

    What happens when you don't tell a boy about his family? Sometimes, he burns down the Jedi academy. Sometimes, he kills his father and marries his mother.
    Kylo Ren has "Greek tragedy" written all over him, but for all the Hades-Persephone fics, there doesn't seem to be a serious Oedipus myth retelling out there.
    Unfortunately for all of us, I have now written one. Please don't hate me.
