    Summary

    “I’ll do anything,” Orpheus says. His knees are beginning to buckle under him. “I’ll work in the mines. I’ll work on the wall.”

    “Son, you wouldn’t last a day down there,” the god drawls.

    “Then I’ll sing,” he croaks. “I’ll sing for your workers to keep them in line. I’ll sing for your wife, to keep her underground. Please…” He glances back at the house—really more of a shack—where Eurydice lies by the dwindling fire. “I can’t let her starve.”

    Silence. Then, a quirk of the lips—not really a smile, but the gesture of one. “I suppose I could use a canary.”

    Summary

    The first Hunger Games were little more than a series of televised executions. The tributes were not picked at random—one from each district was the child of a rebel leader, and the other the child of a family who had kept their heads down, waiting for the war to end, refusing to defend their Capitol and daring to survive anyway. And—most crucially—not a single tribute was to be left alive. The Capitol would be the only victor.

    “There are no innocents among you,” they proclaimed from every Justice Hall balcony. “You will be killed and your children will be killed and that is all that you are good for. Let this be a reminder of the horror you brought upon yourselves.”

    Summary

    All across Europe, witches were being hunted, for there was nothing authority feared more than a powerful woman. And it soon became clear that men, wizard and Muggle alike, would do nothing to save them if there was a chance it could endanger their own survival. It was up to the women to save themselves and each other.

    Based on Tumblr user aprilmaclean's all-female founders AU.

    Summary

    “Oh, Goddess,” Quill continued, eyes widening. “Lorr are shapeshifters. It could be a shapeshifter. What if it comes out and it’s an ostrich? Or something with antlers? What if it comes out looking like a fucking Rhodia? Because I swear, if it does, I’m dying on the spot.”

    Matteusz laughed despite himself. Quill gave him an annoyed look, but couldn’t hide the smirk tugging at the edge of her lips. “I’m serious,” she said, then looked down at her stomach again. “You stop that. Ow.”

    Matteusz cares for Quill during an important time in her pregnancy, and finds himself cared for in turn.

    Summary

    “Like, finally here's a poem that isn't just some bloke whining about how a beautiful girl won’t give him sex, and it's basically ‘sweet mother, I’m too gay to do my chores, blame Aphrodite’. Like, honestly? Most relatable thing I’ve read in years.”

    Bill meets Sappho.

    Summary

    “It's like the old folk ballads,” April tells him. “They'll change me into all kinds of monsters and nightmares and deadly things. They'll do anything they can to make you let me go. But you can't let go, Ram. No matter what you do—don't let go.”

    Here, as he lies on the forest floor amid wild roses and fallen leaves, staring into the mesmerizing blue of April's eyes, it is easy to believe that he will be brave enough to keep his arms around her. But at midnight on All Hallow's Eve, with the shadows of barren trees looming above him and the roar of the Shadowkin horde in his ears, Ram isn't sure he can believe in anything.
