    Summary

    “Raise your foul weapons and fight me!”

    “Why do I even bother?” he hears him say. A sigh, and then the daemon lowers his weapon fully to his side. “Theseus, I know where Asterius is.”

    At that, Theseus—in the middle of prepping another toss of his spear—freezes.

    “Speak those words again.”

    “Well, I don’t know exactly where he is, but I’ve been everywhere throughout my father’s realm, so I have an idea where he might be held.”

    “So you lie!” Theseus cries, aghast.

    Or: Asterius is taken by Hades as punishment for Theseus' inability to defeat Zagreus. Zagreus feels guilty that he's caused the shades around him so much pain, but he's unwilling to give up on his quest. Instead, he suggests they find Asterius together. What could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    opia
    n. the ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which can feel simultaneously invasive and vulnerable—their pupils glittering, bottomless and opaque—as if you were peering through a hole in the door of a house, able to tell that there’s someone standing there, but unable to tell if you’re looking in or looking out.

    from the dictionary of obscure sorrows

    Summary

    “I’m not supposed to be interacting with you, Zagreus,” Patroclus says sternly. “I’m to be a silent observer in the narrative of you and your clan’s lives.”

    Zagreus merely bumps his idiot little meerkat head against Patroclus’ camera.

    -

    Patroclus’ husband, Achilles, is away for a year on a once in a lifetime opportunity to film footage of the elusive Philippine Eagle. Bereft of his lover, Patroclus does what any depressed wildlife cinematographer would do in this situation.

    He says yes to filming a movie length reboot of Meerkat Manor.
