    Summary

    Clarke is a young goddess charged with the care and tending of Spring. She knows nothing of death or pain or suffering until her dearest friend's lover is taken to the Underworld. Determined to get him back and see her friend smile again, Clarke journeys into Hades, where she soon learns that the stories she's been told about the dreaded "Lord" of the Underworld are false, and that death is as much a part of life as love.

    A queering of the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades, with no abduction, rape, or coercion. Inspired by The Dark Wife by Sarah Diemer.

    Summary

    There is nothing a little bedrest and irony can't cure.

    Lexa is sure the only thing that heals Clarke's mind and keeps her heart thumping against her ribs is an ill-advised amount of the first and a frustrating amount of the second. But Clarke has never been anything less than ill-advised and frustrating. If anybody will survive a hole in their brain, Lexa is sure it will be Clarke.

    (At Heda's expense, of course.)

    Summary

    “I’m sorry,” Victoria says again.

    Taylor wants to push Victoria down, to reach down into her and drag out the rest of the apology she’s owed. She wants to know that Victoria understands what hurt her, why, but it’s all so exhausting. She leans back against the door instead, still gripping the doorknob, waiting.

    “I don’t know,” Victoria sounds like she’s been choked, voice hoarse, barely there, “okay? I don’t know what we are.”

    --

    Victoria and Taylor figure things out.
