    Summary

    Andrew and Neil don’t meet in life. They meet in limbo.

    Andrew is a Reaper – a ‘ferryman’ charged with taking the souls of the recently deceased through limbo to the Other Side.

    Neil wakes up dead – killed by his father – or so he believes.

    But as ever for our Foxes, nothing is ever as simple as it seems.

    Summary

    There’s a new god in the pantheon; Andrew remembers hearing about the scandal a while back, the newest Demeter having a child with the current Zeus and then going on the run, child in tow. They call him Persephone, the god of springtime and new life, the antithesis of Andrew's realm. It would be ludicrous of Perspehone to ever interact with Andrew at all.

    If only someone told Persephone that.

    --

    “Hades, right?” Persephone asks.

    “Andrew,” Andrew responds, and Persephone hums.

    “Nice to meet you, Andrew. I’m Neil,” Neil responds. Andrew cuts a look sideways to see Neil watching him, something assessing in his gaze. Andrew nods in response. “I have to say, you’re not nearly as scary as everyone says you are,” Neil continues.

    “You barely know me. Give it time,” Andrew says, because the rumors don’t exaggerate. People fear him for good reason.

    “I’d like to, I think,” Neil says. Andrew quirks an eyebrow at him. “Know you,” Neil clarifies. Before Andrew can think of a response, Neil’s head turns. “I have to go. Zeus called for me, and he’ll notice if I’m missing. Thanks for the cigarette.”

    Summary

    Justin: John Doe says “I am a student athlete and I have an issue with someone on my team. The first time I ever met him, he hit me so hard in the stomach with a racquet that I went flying to the floor-

    Griffin: Okay, wait, I know the answer to this question, get a restraining order. Or leave the state. Probably leave the state. Leave the state might be the right answer.

    Justin: Let me finish, it gets so much worse. He hit me so hard in the stomach with a racquet that I went flying to the floor. However, over this year, though he has threatened me with death on a number of occasions, he has promised to keep me safe from my past (don’t worry about it).

    Griffin: DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT?

    Summary

    Andrew's eyes slide to Neil’s own, hazel and framed with eyelashes dark enough to belie his natural hair colour, and his expression does something complicated. “Neil, I presume?”

    Andrew,” Neil nods, confirming and asking all in one.

    Andrew hums. “Audacious of you to laugh at my height when you look to make a pretty decent arm-rest for Kevin, yourself”

    “Not your height,” Neil allows, “your pride. I would have gotten a stool”

    “I would have pushed you off of it”
