    Summary

    Persephone has lived her life, sheltered by her mother, in the wilds of the mortal realm, protected from the males on Olympus.The Fates foretold a great purpose for her at her birth, Persephone "Bringer of Death", destined to be more than just The goddess of spring. Hades has lived his life of loneliness for hundreds of years, a major part in the Titanochomy, but then cast aside from the Olympians with prejudice when he was named King of The Underworld. One fated encounter, one choice, is enough to change the course of history forever.

    A retelling of the story of Persephone and Hades, as well as other major events in Greek mythology, from their view.

    Summary

    Medusa was a monster of legend, with hair turned to serpents and eyes that killed with just a glance. She was a creature hated by the world, and her story spread far and wide, transmitting across time as well as space to reach the ears of the modern era. But what if the story we've been told was a telling of the story where shades of gray did not exist and the character's fates were edited to suit the teller's own purposes. What if the truth was lost among the lies, and the monsters and angels were confused for one another. It's all about perspective, they say, but how can we decide which version we trust if we're only showed one. Here is an alternative to a tale as old as time, and an alternative world where the hero puts down his sword.

    Summary

    [M2 - Prompt: "Buona sera. Probabilmente tua madre merita di morire" (Leander Deeny, Gli incubi di Hazel)]
    Quando, quel giorno, si aprirono le porte della locanda “Il melograno”, un locale riservato eppure accogliente, gli occhi degli uomini presenti vennero attirati dall’entrata a passo sicuro di una donna dal portamento solenne, molto alta, vestiti alla moda, occhiali da sole e capelli neri raccolti in un rigoroso chignon. Dalle orecchie pendevano dei brillanti orecchini rotondi con un ciondolino a forma di fiore.
