    Summary

    Zagreus had reunited Patroclus with Achilles, and everything was going well between the two of them.

    That is, until one day, Patroclus wakes with no memory of himself or who he once was.

    Patroclus may not know who the golden haired man was that came to visit him, but there is something about him that draws him in—And he wants to know more.

    His memories are not the only mystery to be solved, as Achilles, Zagreus, and Thanatos set out to find what made the fallen myrmidon drink.

    A Hades AU based on the main premise of Valhalla: Cyberpunk Bartender Action, where Zagreus is working at the coffee shop his father has called Elysium, a little paradise at the underground passages of Athens for people to relax and talk. But what happens when people talk to him about their worries and lives? What happens when even his friends visit his workplace to vent to him? One thing is sure, young Zagreus is in for a long ride and is surely about to change many lives.

    Summary

    Nyx gets word from the Fates that Patroclus’s time in Elysium is up and should return to Tartarus, while Achilles goes to Elysium as planned. As Achilles accepts his fate in potentially never seeing Patroclus again, Hades strikes a deal with him.

    “You will journey to Elysium and find Patroclus. There’s a rumor of Hector, the Trojan Prince that ended your lover’s life, has taken interest in him. Be warned that the rules of paradise are not the same within these walls, the dead don’t need honor...Elysium is massive and souls might be territorial. Watch your back and...don’t keep me waiting Pelides”

    Achilles must travel into the depths of Elysium, encountering familiar and unfamiliar characters from his mortal days, to find Patroclus and change fate once again.

    Summary

    When it became clear he couldn't escape the human's arms yet again, his passion bled away, leaving him limp and pathetic there, pressed into the sand. The human released him; he cannot say how long after, as this is when his memory begins to crumble into fragments.

    He thinks...he thinks the human wasn't pleased. It spoke to itself, walked around him and he didn't listen to its words.

    Then the human...grabbed him? Pulled him. And he hadn't fought. He hadn't listened, either--he should have listened; it could have been explaining things. He could have listened, and learned what it said to bargain for his passage onto the ferryman's boat.

    --

    The Bull of Minos is brought to Elysium by his murderer and begins the long trial of acclimating to an afterlife as one of the exalted; a great oddity among great men.

    Summary

    It’s with a buzz of self-satisfaction that Zagreus walks through the last section of Elysium and towards the twisted hedges surrounding the outer edges of the Rings. It’s been a bit since Zagreus was last here. He has to keep up the pretense that he’s still trying to get out into the city for the sake of his relatives, and though he knows it’s for the best, he doesn’t love the commentary on his “failures”.

    Still, he doesn’t really know how they’re going to fix that particular issue. It’s felt like a far off problem - until today.

    ----
    Or: What is the Hades storyline without inevitable family drama and Zagreus trying to get people to just deal with problems?

    Summary

    When he folds to his knees the first time, cheek against the soft grasses of Athens, heart bleeding out of his chest, he also feels the press of something into his hand. Then, his mother’s words trickle slow, honey-like into his ears, as she says:

    “There’s too much fruit in this garden for me to eat alone. Share it with someone else you love, until you can share it with me.”

    Summary

    Zagreus has been successful: Persephone has returned and their family is whole once again — Olympus included. The completed royal family of the Underworld lives peacefully, with no other looming threads to face. But, they have not dealt with one:

    Hades would not have an Heir. The Fates do not falter, nor do they ever declare a prophecy in jest. Hades would not have an heir…

    ...Perhaps this is what they meant.

    (There is something different about Zagreus).

    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

    He told us too of Heracles, his labors, and the madness that took him. In its grip he had not recognized his wife and children, and had killed them for enemies.
    Achilles asked, "How could he not recognize his wife?"
    "That is the nature of madness," Chiron said.
    [...]
    Achilles' eyes were bright in the firelight, his face drawn sharply by the flickering shadows. I would know it in the dark or disguise, I told myself. I would know it even in madness.
    __
    “She took him, Achilles.”
    Peleus saw him freeze, could feel how his blood ran cold.
    “In the dead of the night, shrouded by Mother Nyx, she took him.”
    Peleus’ heart ached for his boy, but he knew, even as he wrapped his son in an embrace, there was nothing he could do to soften the blow of his next words.
    “As you slept, Thetis, your mother, took him to the caves under the sea.”

    Summary

    Two young men sit together on a bus. One has fallen deep into a drunken sleep with a bottle of ambrosia in his hand. The other is holding him and smiling, just as tired but unwilling to let the moment fade. Both of them are madly in love.

    After months of secretly texting each other, of daydreaming about a life together, it has all culminated in this: Hypnos and Dionysus have eloped, each fleeing their own kind of familiar hell, and now they're on the road towards an uncertain future together.

    Summary

    Young godling Zagreus grows up with his mother in their humble cottage, spending his days rummaging through the garden and basking in the sun. But at night, he meets another in secret: the boy with golden eyes who can shape the dreamworld however he likes.

    Hypnos finds him in his dreams, and though they've never meet in the waking world, they quickly become close friends. As the pair grow up together, though, they find themselves longing more and more to finally meet in the flesh, despite the risks. (But then, when has young love ever minded a few risks?)
