    Summary

    They say Hadestown is a place closer to Hell than Heaven, but not quite either. It steals your name, your heart, and the breath from your lungs. It's hard to get to, harder to leave, and if Newt's ever going to escape, it'll take everything he has plus a demonic miracle to do so, and that's just to start.

    Summary

    Ophelia knew the story of Orpheus and Eurydice but she was not Orpheus and Emilia was not Eurydice. Hermes told her the story was a love song for anyone who tries and she was going to at least try. But trying was just half of the battle. The rest was down to her. There's no turning back now.

    Not really Shakespeare or Hadestown but taken inspiration and lyrics from both.

    Summary

    “Do you let me walk with you?”
    <I'm asking you to marry me. Say "I do.">
    She belongs to him.
    Eurydice stared at him through water-ladden lashes. “I do.”
    <Say it isn't true!>
    < I do. >
    “I do,” Orpheus repeated softly.
    His wife inclined her head. “And keep on walking, come what will?”
    He took a shuddering breath. “I will.”
    “I will.” She nodded, before glancing at Hades.
    “We will,” they said in unison.

    Summary

    Soulmate AU
    Before one meets their soulmate, the world is grey but the only other color they can see is the favorite color of their soulmate. Until they touch their soulmates, only then will they be able to see the colors of our world.

    ~

    Grey and red. Persephone hated those colors with a passion. Her world was ugly, a slate of dull grey and she wanted desperately to escape it. She had heard from older family members about being able to see the world in all its glory. She tried to envision the world as they saw it. Colorful, beautiful gradients that stretched across the sky littered with clouds and the rainbow of flowers in her flower shop. But she did not anticipate the day it would come. She couldn't. A country girl lost in the city. What were the chances of finding her soulmate out of millions in the world?

    Summary

    Orpheus was a poor boy, with a rhythm and a rhyme.
    Eurydice was a hungry young girl, no stranger to hard times.

    She was but a wilting lily petal on the river they called Styx.
    She'd waited for the one she loved too long, so now she drifts.

    Orpheus was a sunflower, as bright as summer's day.
    Always leaning towards the light, he saw the world his way.

    When she called out to him he came, to see what she had done.
    Orpheus was a sunflower. Eurydice was his sun.

    Summary

    A prequel to Hadestown, that shows how Hades and Persephone first meet. I specifically like writing in this Universe, because not only are the women given agency, but it shows Hades and Persephone's relationship as one that started with love, and not trickery or violence.

    Hades is summoned by Zeus to aid him in a small task and perhaps have dinner together afterwards. On his way home, he meets a young woman (over 18 but no specific ages are given to anyone in this fic) singing to herself while picking flowers. It changes him for better or for worse.

    It is worth noting that Hades and Demeter are not siblings in this story, just acquaintances.

    Summary

    “Why build walls, why make folks walk single file? Divide and conquer is what it's called.”
    “It's a trap,” Orpheus realised, his voice small and hurt.
    “No. It’s a trial. Do you trust each other? Do you trust yourselves?”
    “We do,” they said together.
    “Prove it. Prove it to gods and men, that you can walk out of Hades, can you do that?”
    “We can.”
    “Then go.”
    -
    Or, Eurydice's side of the story from the time of her death to the end of the famous tale.

    Summary

    "The meanest dog you'll ever meet
    He ain't the hound dog in the street.
    He bares some teeth and tears some skin,
    But brother, that's the worst of him.
    No, the dog you really got to dread is
    The one that howls inside your head.
    It's him whose howling drives men mad
    In a mind to its undoing."


    Phoenix's songs can bring spring upon dying lands, but if they can't save a dying soul, how can you expect them to bring back the dead?
