    Summary

    Thanatos, as a favor for his coworker and friend, Achilles, goes to Elysium to check on a shade and ensure the terms of his contract were upheld.

    Turns out, Thanatos likes spending time in Elysium with Patroclus, and so offers to start taking messages between the two shades. He can't change their circumstances, but he can at least ignore his own growing feelings for the two shades and carry their words to one another.

    And this works fine... until Patroclus asks him to bring a message of a different sort to Achilles...

    Summary

    When Patroclus died, he was still angry with Achilles - angry at him for dragging them to war, angry at him for refusing to fight, angry at him for his pride.

    Patroclus knows this isn't entirely fair, so he settles into his afterlife, content knowing he had plenty of time to work through his feelings before he saw Achilles again - after all, it took a lot to kill a mostly-invulnerable demigod.

    Summary

    The thing about risking it all - the damnable thing about risking it all - is that it means you put everything on the line for a chance to make it all better.

    But it also means there's a chance to lose what little you had - and once you've risked it all, there's no going back.

    Summary

    Zagreus, sick of his father's abuse, packs some clothes and his computer into his backpack and makes his way to his best friend's apartment, hoping he can crash with Thanatos for a couple of weeks while he finds a new job and a place to live.

    Of course, he's forgotten Than just left for New York to visit his long-distance boyfriend, but his very hot neighbors are happy to put Zagreus up for a week until Thanatos comes home.

    It wasn't that Zagreus wanted it to hurt.

    It's just he's never known love to mean anything but pain.

    Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme...

    Summary

    Katherine Goodfellow, PhD. was just your average anthropologist, just had her third, largely unremarkable paper published and was giving a small lecture about it at the university she worked at.

    Imagine her surprise when she walked out on stage to a packed auditorium that was probably breaking fire codes - and every single question at the end was the exact same.

    Summary

    He stares down at the parchment, throat tight with unshed tears. It was a simple agreement: he never steps foot in Elysium and is instead a guard at the House of Hades. In return, Patroclus is allowed to spend eternity in paradise.

    Achilles doesn't ask questions before he signs.

    He really should have asked where Patroclus' soul was first.
