    Summary

    AKA Helen Goes Husband-Hunting Down Below

    At the completion of things, Menelaos went to Elysium without death getting him there, as Proteus had predicted. Helen was taken to Olympos, frankly relieved to leave everything behind. But what might originally have brought relief can become something missed, and Helen is the daughter of a god.

    Does she not have the right, after everything, to be a little greedy, to want more than she could have imagined while mortal?

    Summary

    CLYTEMNESTRA: “You’ve married me by brutal force and by murder. You’ve murdered Tantalus, my first husband and with even more brutal violence, you’ve torn my baby from my breast and dashed it hard against the ground! So angry were my twin brothers, the Dioscuri, that they came charging down from Zeus’ side on their glistening horses to fight you but you went begging to my old father, Tyndareus and he, not only saved you but made me your wife!”

    - Euripides, Iphigeneia at Aulis 1150-1151

    Summary

    War was a Horseperson of the Apocalypse who had fallen in love with Princess Helen of Aetolia- known to history as Helen of Troy. The two adored one another, more than anything in the world. When time came for Helen to marry King Menelaus of Sparta, War came up with a delightful little plan for the two to run off together, away from the restrictive duties of Helen's birthright.

    This is the story where Helen actually decided to take that leap and go off with her, and the following consequences of abandoning your eternal purpose for love.

    Summary

    Vignettes from the point of view of Helen, from her childhood to the Trojan War.

     

    This is just my personal take, and one interpretation out of an infinite many. I have just been thinking about the most beautiful woman in the world who she might be, as a demigod, as a wife, and as a person.

    Work in progress, but just wanted a place to get it out and force me to give each episode a try.

    Summary

    “Congratulations, you’re officially a constellation! Welcome to the Temple of Stars!” squeals the cloud nymph when all that’s left is the vaulted ceiling above them, a friendly cobalt blue once more, and the unnatural glow on Zöe’s skin. “That was magnificent to watch, truly magnificent! In the olden times, it would take the constellations fifty years after their deaths to be transformed—the line and paperwork was ridiculous, you see—so we cloud nymphs would have to watch them marinate in their own deaths… Now, though, the Lady receives not as many requests—"

    Zöe struggles out of the cloud nymph’s embrace and falls into her own puddle of blood.

    ---

    or: i pull a whole afterlife out of my ass and play fast and loose with greek mythology to give zöe nightshade the following: closure, character development, a second chance at life, friends, and a wife. not necessarily in that order.

    Summary

    Brazier fire dances over his russet curls, as he animatedly spins another yarn about the rich wonders of his murky and probably quite cold home island at the northern edge of civilization. Clytemnestra stifles a yawn. "Tell me you're not serious about him," she mouths at her sister across the table.

    Summary

    “But don’t you want to marry me?” he asked, enough of a lilt in his voice that he could beg off as teasing need be.

    Penelope was too sharp to be fooled by his tone. “I believe it’s my father you’ll be needing to speak with about that.”

    Or: Penelope is used to being outshone by her cousin Helen, and even Clytemnestra. Odysseus is used to having things go his way, through luck or cunning. They never realized that meeting each other would undo all of that, and themselves.

    Summary

    The players: Antilochus Pylos (19), very high Troy College sophomore. Castor Dioscuri (19), not as high Troy College sophomore. Pollux Dioscuri (19) possibly unconscious Troy College sophomore. An oncoming gang of leprechauns and one dude in a shirt that asks onlookers to kiss him because he is Irish.

    He is not Irish.

    “Listen carefully to what I say,” Castor has his hands on his shoulders, probably for balance as they’re synchronized swayers in the night, as serious as he can be. “Remember the first rule: I will be an enemy to your enemies and will oppose those who oppose you.”

    Summary

    Yet another retelling of the Trojan War cycle.
    Tired of those yet? But we all know there can never be too many.
    Let's try to approach it from the beginning.
    And... not disrespect the source material too much, if possible.

    Trolling Paris? Always a delight.
