    Summary

    Zagreus hardly sleeps anymore, but when he does, he finds his body does remember: all the ways Meg has killed him, the whip wrapped around his ankle, her heel against his throat. Thanatos’s hands cradling the back of his head, dragging him gently down.

    It’s almost lonely in the house. They don’t touch him then.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “No, not really. I can’t imagine you actually raising a blade against me. No offense.”

    “No,” says Thanatos, not meeting Zagreus’s eyes. “Neither can I. Maybe it would be easier if I could.”

    Summary

    Zagreus is going to leave, and this will be all he has to remember him by, won’t it? Bottles of nectar, the memory of blood, and the smell of pomegranates.

    (Was this what it was like for Hades? Will it ruin him the way it ruined his master?)

    Summary

    The first time you see him is Day 1 of Sburbian Mythology 101.

    The lecture starts in two minutes and the flow of students into the hall has slowed to a trickle, which is how you notice out of the corner of your eye a pale human in all red sauntering into the room, wearing a set of douchey shades in perplexing defiance of the torrential rainstorm that's been plaguing the city all week. In fact, you register, he seems to be the only one in the hall to not be drenched or at least somewhat wet, as if he's somehow managed to convince his clothes to ignore the godawful downpour outside.

    You're about to turn back away when he stops and seizes up mid-stride, the abrupt tension in the human's posture visible even from a distance. He's looking in your direction, you realize, and though the sunglasses are in the way, you have an unshakable feeling that his eyes are staring straight at you.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He starts to sing, or like, do that annoying Kesha talk-singing, but you don’t catch any of the words. You’re too busy watching him. He’s a lot to look at when he’s sweated off half his makeup and hunched in the corner around a bottle of liquor. Done up and color-edited he is incendiary.

    Summary

    Dream-sharing. A highly illegal little industry in which agents delve into people's dreams and unearth their deepest secrets and memories. And the Strider-Lalondes are the best in the business.

    Until Dirk Strider gets his fool ass trapped within the confines of his own subconscious, with his Auto-Responder playing malicious prison warden. To save him, it's going to take a team of the world's most talented dreamers to save him.

    Backed by the token rich friend, lead by the surliest extractor ever bribed out of retirement, haunted by the shade of the l8est and gr8est agent in the biz, and on the run through a dangerous tiered dream in a hostile mind, it's going to take a miracle to pull this one off.

    Oh Orpheus, sing to me all night...
