    Summary

    Кора устала от того, что ее способности не находят никакого применения — и ей кажется, что она, возможно, нашла кое-кого, кто согласится объединиться с ней в одну команду. Она почти уверена: он никакой не злодей.

    Summary

    Persephone stumbled backwards and froze, caught in the gaze of the strange dark woman before him, her crimson gaze penetrating and unflinching. Hades silently eyed the sun-kissed, messy haired man before her to decide what to make of him. There was something genuine and disarming about this young god she found sleeping in the flowers, gaping up at her in awe... Genderbent (Female Hades, Male Persephone)

    Summary

    Just another sweet retelling of the Hades and Persephone story, in which Persephone is a young goddess trying to find her place in the world, and Hades is the lonely Lord of the Underworld, dedicated to his duties and his doggo, slowly giving more of himself to his duties and slowly wasting away... When Demeter is ordered by Zeus to bring her daughter, Kore, to Olympus for the festivities of Hephaestus and Aphrodite's wedding, the Corn-Mother is naturally anxious. Persephone steals a few moments to herself and wanders the vast palace complex, where she stumbles upon Hades who had also been seeking solitude amid the revelry. The two spark up a conversation, and neither is quite the same afterwards...

    Summary

    Unseen and unheard, Ganymede moves through the palace of Olympus with the ease and inconspicuousness of a servant, or at least the gods and goddesses of Olympus do well at playing their part. What reasons have they to worry from a lone human amongst immortals?

    Raised in luxury and tasked with keeping Zeus's goblet and plate full of nectar and ambrosia at all times, Ganymede has never wanted for anything under the watchful eyes of Zeus and Athena, never feared even the volatile Ares, trained as he is at being invisible.

    Until now.

    Summary

    Hades’ tight curls hid most of the toddler’s face, but Demeter caught a glimpse of deep brown eyes – his – and an aquiline nose – his – and lips as red as crimson – even that, his.

    Summary

    Movement on his computer monitor caught her attention. Her eyes fixated on the colourful pop-up, confused. It was so bright, especially compared to the dull spreadsheets and linear graphs that took up the entire background. A revealing amount of pink skin stared back at her trying to tempt her with "HOT FLOWER NYMPHS IN YOUR AREA WANT TO TALK TO YOU!!"

    "Hades?" she spoke, breaking his stride, "What's this?"

    Summary

    Hades and Persephone. (CONSENT)

    Woven into fairytales.

    Bad at description.

    Except:

    As she grew, Persephone was the apple of everyone's eye. Day began and ended with her as even Eos, Helios, and Selene thrilled in hearing the little princess's joy at seeing the morning sun come up and going down at night. And Hades would hear of it all at their return. After all, the Titans were doomed to live down under. The king of hell would hear the sibling Titans ramble off about Zeus's dear daughter, and Hades would listen with a distant face, yet unknown to even him, his heart craved to hear of all the things the Titan siblings told about Persephone....

    Based on the following prompt by @writing-prompt-s on tumblr.

    A woman walks through an ancient history museum. She sees a painting of the Greek God, Zeus. She finds the immortal very attractive. Suddenly, a flash of light blinds her. She turns around and a man is inches away from her face. “So,” he says, “wanna get a drink?”

    Summary

    It was different this time. His hand reached out, cupping her face. Persephone shut her eyes when she felt his lips touch her forehead. The waterfall that guarded the mouth of cave roared, though its sound was a distant and gentle rush in her ears. She felt his warm breath tickle her face, his scent of earth and sweat filling her nose. He sighed.
    “Do you want this?”
    “Yes,” she answered.

    Summary

    You are Adonis.

    You are at a crossroads - you could stay with the goddess who is by all rights your mother, or you could follow the other goddess and leave your home behind.

    You choose to leave.

    (It is not for a reason one may expect.)
