    Summary

    Hades is at the end of his rope with his unruly and wayward son. Zagreus is becoming far too...inquisitive...for Hades' liking. He needs something to ground the prince. Something to give Zagreus purpose. Something to make him calmer. Something, no someone, like...Achilles. The House's most stalwart shade and one that Hades has, over the years, actually come to respect. So Hades swallows his pride and asks Achilles for a favor. Not just any favor. But to teach Zagreus the ways of the sword and spear and bow. To teach him discipline. To teach him respect.

    But what Hades doesn't count on is the fact that Achilles will also tell the prince stories. Stories of the surface. And by the time he figures out that Achilles' lessons are only fueling Zagreus' desire to leave the House, it is too late. The damage has been done. The Prince's mind is full of stories of Greece and glory and war and hope and -- damn it all, why did he ever ask a mortal to teach his son?

    Summary

    After Zagreus' mother moves back home, everything is supposed to be okay. His dad still doesn't care about him, but that's normal enough. He's still trying to break out of the Underworld, but that's allowed now. Achilles and Patrocus still don't love him, but that's—well—he's trying to be okay with that. Really.
    It would be easier, though, if they allowed him to keep his space from them, and stopped asking him to sit down with them for a chat, and didn't keep asking after that invitation to their house they extended a while ago that he's been avoiding.
    He's trying not to be in their way, so why won't they let him?

    (aka: Zagreus thinks he's getting in the newly-reunited couple's way but his attempts at avoidance aren't going so well, Achilles feels bad about lying to Zagreus by implying that he wasn't in love with him, Patroclus meddles, But It's Ok Because They All End Up Havin' Sex!
    thats not a spoiler right...like it's rated e and has a happy ending tag. theres sex in it)

    Summary

    If Zagreus won't accept that there is no escape, then perhaps he needs incentive to stay.

    Summary

    When Achilles first accepted the job, he hadn't expected it to lead to this.

    After joining the faculty of the prestigious Daedalus Academy run by Nyx Adyton, Achilles soon finds himself one of the popular teachers despite his own issues and an honorary father figure for more than one student. One student in particular turns the world on its head as he attempts to repeatedly run away, pulling everyone around him into the fray.

    Summary

    Sleep lacked for nothing. He had a fulfilling job, a kind but strict boss, a soft bed waiting for him on his days off, at least one friend in the form of the realm’s rebellious prince, a friendly relationship with the realm’s most beautiful and commanding fury, and a brother who cared enough to visit once in a while. Realistically, he had everything he could ask for. Yet, as he thickened the lines of a bat he had just sketched into the decorative border he was constructing, his mind drifted to the last dream he had traveled in. The warmth of the fire and the loving gaze of the mother as she looked upon her sons.

    He remembered the mortal mother’s eyes and his heart ached. He tried to imagine Thanatos laughing with him, but the image left him empty.

    At the end of his shift a strange voice called out to him, beckoning him to the elder sigil in the back of the administrative chamber. Perhaps his extended family could help him find what was missing.

    Summary

    Or: Fuck Your Way to Freedom

    The gods of Olympus will help Zagreus get out of the underworld, but he's going to have to do sexual favors to earn their boons. And they're not the only ones after our hero's sweet booty.

    Summary

    Achilles fell in love—or at least in lust—with Zagreus the moment he laid eyes on the young god. Yet he knew his heart belonged to another, so never acted on that feeling. After being reuinited with Patroclus, however, and being reassured of his love's lack of jealosy, he feels free to finally act on those desires.

    Unfortunately Achilles is a little too nervous, a little too overwrought, after some unmeasured eternity of controlling his desires. And Zagreus, open and free with his love as he may be, is also thick as a brick.

    So it falls to Patroclus to let the young prince know that his mentor—and Patroclus himself—both wish to thank him in a very intimate way.

    Summary

    There's a lot to learn about the tourist trap that is Styx Beach; that it's a dry town, that it's made up of quiet religious retirees, that its beholden to the only hotel generating any kind of tourism and it's stubborn owner, but there's one thing Hermes starts to learn after a month into his extended 'vacation'.

    He kind of likes that boat guy.

    Summary

    “Unbelievable. No warning, no letter— he never follows customs, thinks the rules are beneath him when they don’t serve to his betterment—” Zagreus's father glared at him. “I can see why you get along.”

    “It’s not like I invited him here,” Zagreus lied.

    Summary

    Thanatos knew the moment something had gone wrong with Zagreus.
    It had happened so suddenly, startlingly so, that Thanatos’ eyes had widened as his breath caught for a moment. He felt as Zagreus’ warmth abruptly disappeared from his senses, like a candle being extinguished by someone smothering the flame.
    -
    “Huh. I guess it did get to him more than he let on.”
    “What?” Thanatos asked, eyebrows furrowing. “What did?”
    “His dreams. Or I suppose nightmares.” Hypnos said, shoulders lifting in a shrugging motion.
    -
    A soft story where Zag has a difficult nightmare and Than gives him all the love and reassurances.

    Summary

    Achilles is almost amused, “You must be truly desperate, to come to me for relationship advice.”

    --

    Remember: fear is for the weak.

    Summary

    Achilles and Patroclus are finally reunited - two souls together, bound in deepest affection (and occasionally terrible household DIY projects). Both of them also share affection for Zagreus: prince of the underworld, god of Blood and Life, and their personal divine, blessed patron.

    Zagreus has something awkward to ask.

    Summary

    Achilles has resigned himself to an eternity of servitude within the House of Hades, keeping himself busy so that he has no time to brood; but when Zagreus returns with a new keepsake to add to his collection, it spikes memories that cause Achilles to mourn a love he wishes to reclaim...

    And somehow, against all explanation, his misery manages to reach the person whom he has lost all hope of seeing, and so Patroclus weeps as well.

    Summary

    Zagreus, nicknamed The Zigzag, is the golden boy of the Darkmouth University Baseball Team. He thought he (or rather his dad) had his whole life figured out by now but when his Writing professor assigned him the stupidest and most basic essay topic ever, he found himself second guessing everything.

    Than is the new barista in Eurydice’s café, serving up some fresh baked goods that got the business booming again like a godsent boon. Their place was a hangout space for the arts and humanities kids so it surprised him how the Uni’s all-star athlete was becoming one of their regulars.

    This is a tale about food, sports, music, college burnout, and screwing Theseus’ opportunity to get into Major League Baseball. As Zag tries to figure out what to do with his graduation essay. Read on and listen carefully...

    Summary

    "It's just a bottle of nectar, right?" It's an... odd sort of chink in Achilles armor, but a chink nonetheless. And, absent any alternatives, it's the best choice that he has. "Just a... friendly bottle of nectar. What could possibly go wrong?"

    --

    Achilles is the Champion of Elysium, Theseus is Zagreus' trainor and mentor, and Zagreus is about to seduce his way out of Elysium--one bottle of nectar at a time.

    Oh, and maybe catch some feelings, along the way.

    If anyone asks, it was Theseus' idea.
