    Summary

    (Lyricist and poet needed)

    Young Lord Potter loves his godfather Sirius. While Lord Black is kind to his godson and heir, he refused to let the boy go outside of the fences that surrounds the tower hidden deep in the forest. But Harry desires to see the whole world beyond his home so he sings and plays his musical instruments hoping to lure anybody just anybody to go to the tower to free him.

    The Winchester brothers along with Castiel come to the city after reports of people whom went missing in the forest, along with rumors of a flying motorcycle, a huge Black Dog, unusual weather changes and the music that was supposedly heard in the forest before the weather changes & the people went missing.

    When they reach the tower secret location, they found a child trapped behind the fences. When the brothers free the boy, they realize that they are now in a huge mess once again when they learn the boy's curse & that his pissed off godfather is NOT the only one they should worry about.

    Harry is happy to be on an adventure with his new friends until he learns about the secrets he must protect no matter what, the people with dark intentions towards him, and the heavy price of his beautiful unique power.

    Summary

    When Loki died—all the Æsir-bones in his neck crushed beneath the grip of Thanos—nothing happened. No eruption of magic uncaged, ripping through the spools of the universe. No diffusion of energy returning to the primordial cosmos. No cessation, no realignment, no moment to breathe out into the absence of. Just a soft, wet crack and nothingness.

    That was how Thor knew, as he pawed at his brother’s leathers and drummed out the missing heartbeat with his fists, that this was not the end.

    [A reincarnation remix of the Orpheus & Eurydice myth, by way of the most tragically codependent god-brothers around.]

    Summary

    She works in a diner and echoes every song in the jukebox like a songbird trying to forge her own melody. He writes copy for a second-rate board game series and stains the back booth with blue ink trying to spin his own legend.

    Fate weaves them together as it unravels them apart, but she’s never been one to abide easily by the rules of this world or the one underneath.

    Summary

    John is grieving Sherlock's death post Reichenbach until one day, he sees the violin case, and something inside him tells him to pick it up.
    He sits entranced, for as long as he can, before something shifts inside him and he rises. He hasn’t touched the empty chair in front of him, and he doesn’t now as he reaches behind it. The case is lighter than he expects, and he carries it with reverence that matches his uncertainty. Balancing it on his legs, he toys with the zipper for a moment, caressing the worn metal between his thumb and forefinger.

    Crossover between BBC Sherlock and the Greek tragedy Orpehus and Eurydice, wherein Eurydice is killed for her beauty and taken to the Underworld. Orpheus, being the son of Apollo (the God of Music and Medicine) travels to the Underworld to convince (via playing his lyre) Hades and Persephone to let Eurydice go. Orpheus then must travel with Eurydice behind him, not looking back, until they exit to the land of the living.

    This version of the tale ends better than the original.

    Summary

    "So far, so terrible. Overcome with grief, Orpheus travels to the Underworld to bring her back to life. He convinces Hades and Persephone to let Eurydice go, but her release comes with a catch: Eurydice must walk behind him as they ascend to the upper world, and Orpheus is forbidden from looking at her."

    Summary

    Orochimaru refused to let his lover stay dead. He did not sign up to raise a precocious genius child on his own, dammit!

    Based on the myth of Orpheus & Eurydice, in which Orochimaru is Orpheus and Sakumo is Eurydice.

    Summary

    They would see the sun.
    It felt like a myth in those dusty, stuffy tunnels. It had felt like something forbidden when the townfolk had muttered about the light that used to bless their fields and even tell the time itself.
    There had been longing in those tales but also bitterness and deep grief.
    And no one left.
    No one could

    Summary

    'Suddenly it hit Sonny that he would never have a time like that again; no more lazy sundays spent making breakfast as Mike sat and strummed out a song. The entire week had been like that, small reminders of all he had lost, no more evenings spent together cooking, no more late nights were Mike slowly let down his walls to reveal the tender, uncertain heart beneath. Instead all Sonny had was a gravestone, some memories and a dream.'

    Mike is gone and Sonny is grieving and desperate, so desperate he might just believe his dreams following the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.
