    Summary

    Zagreus always made stepping from the Styx look painless and elegant, what with the way he shook its blood-red waters from his hair as he strolled through an unending rain of snow-white flower petals.
    Hypnos figured that practice must have made perfect as he clumsily clawed his way from its depths, weighed down by both his own Styx soaked cloak and a general inability to get his trembling legs to hold his weight.

    OR

    In the Iilad, Hera has Hypnos put Zeus to sleep so she can go cause havoc. In the original myth, Hypnos escaped Zeus's wrath by fleeing to his mother, Nyx, for saftey. Zeus immediately backed down, unwilling to fight against the night.

    In Hades, Hypnos wouldn't have that option.

    Summary

    Animals are adept at finding the easiest route through difficult terrain--the path of least resistance, which they trace again and again, finding safety in repetition and sameness.
    Theseus' path leads him to Elysium U, and Alpha Tau Nu, and...the Bull.

    Summary

    “Don’t I? He has felled me for the tenth time in a row. I am the ruler of this realm, the god of this house. It will not do for him to make me appear so…weak.” He spits the word between them, fingers curling into the palm of his hands and Persephone tuts, takes one of his large fists between her small, delicate hands; begins to rub the tension from his joints one by one.

    “He is your son, Hades, no matter how much you may wish he wasn’t. He has your strength. And your stubbornness.”

    Or

    Persephone's return puts things back into perspective.

    Summary

    Hornet was not born of mutual love. Neither was Hollow. Both hatched into duty, with responsibility looming over them.

    Hollow's very purpose denied them anything but the most disguised and fleeting of affections.

    Yet, as they watch their father negotiate with the final Dreamer, agreeing to bring their sibling into the world so they could be sealed away and the child could lose their mother, they know their sibling's life will be different. Born into Deepnest's shadows instead of the Abyss, with a mother and a caretaker and a family at the White Palace who did not have to ensure they grew up without personhood...

    There are many steps before they can meet their sibling, though.

    Summary

    Relic Seeker Lemm was not the kind of bug that tolerated buy-backs. Once geo passed claws over a relic, all sales were final.

    At the same time, the small traveler who brought him four arcane eggs had probably earned a favor by now.

    Maybe he should at least meet this mysterious sibling of theirs they wanted to buy back a king’s idol for, to see if they’d really appreciate it…
