    There will be lots of angst at first, but eventually things will turn erotic.

    This is not related to my other H&P fic.

    Summary

    “Oh, I’m ever so sorry—” Kore begins to apologize before she looks up into the face of the person who caught her. “Oh,” she whispers with wide eyes.

    It isn’t a satyr or dryad who held her in their arms. It was a man. Handsome, she notices absently, with lush black hair and dark eyes blown wide as if he’s just as surprised to find her in his arms as she is. A long, thin scar marrs his face, but it makes him no less beautiful. If anything, it makes him more so. They stand there, frozen. Neither able to break the embrace, both shocked by the circumstances they find themselves in.

    It’s the man who breaks his silence first.

    “Hello,” he breathes. “Are you alright?”

    Summary

    I'm currently rewriting an old fanfic, that I don't quite like anymore. I have changed some stuff both in the plot and in my characters, so I'm rewriting this whole damn thing.

    Ares and Athena start out hating each other, but circumstances force them to grow together over a long time frame.
    But they are immortal gods, who have all time of the Kosmos.
    And as they slowly learn to actually know and understand each other, they grow closer to each other, until they are able to form a deep bond between their souls.
    Before Athena knows what's happening, she realises, that love doesn't need to be physical.
    Also the Olympians being protective and a tight-knit family, when push comes to shove.

    Summary

    Various one-shots about my favorite superhero Billy Batson a.k.a Captain Marvel (I refuse to call him Shazam). I obviously don't own him, if I did, I wouldn't be writing fanfictions. Some of them are canon, some of them are non-canon. Some are AU while others are OOC. So if there are any people, who get butt-hurt over slight canon deviations then this is not for you.

    Summary

    This is just gonna be where I place random one shots that I write when I'm bored. The titles of the chapters are/is the main character/s that is/are centered around the chapter. The ones titled like "Odysseus and Diomedes" are just those two interacting with each other (either being besties or sworn enemies) while the ones like "Odysseus x Diomedes" are actual ships and include romantic stuff (no smut, lemons and such tho, I can't write porn)

    I swear my writing kinda gets better as time goes on? Just be wary of, you know, how fucked up various myths can be.

    Summary

    Born in the 90s, university student, short and with lots of human friends: Persephone really has a terrible divine curriculum. Mortals don't worship her, Gods don't invite her to their mundane events, and all in all it would be fine for her. Or at least this is what she thinks.

    Everything changes when at a conference she meets Hades, God of the dead. His too is a heavy baggage: three hundred thousand years of age, seven feet tall, at least twenty titles on his name. But he's also the only one understaning Persephone's passion for law subjects, as well as the only one who seems uncomfortable among the other deities as much as her. How couldn't they get along?

    They find themselves intertwining their destinies and working together to issue a controversial judgement, collaborating in a trial of souls in the court of the Underworld. And so, halfway between irony and seriousness, fairness and rigor, life and death, this is the (semi) modern reinterpretation of a myth that has never stopped being told.

    Summary

    At the bottom of the stairs, a man bowed and offered his hand. "Goddess. We've been expecting to see you." She took his hand for support, her other hand resting on her nearly flat stomach. "This way. The oracle is ready for you."

    Demeter finds out she is pregnant and asks the Oracle at Delphi if her child will be happy. Here's what the Oracle sees.

    Persephone/Hades-centric!

    Summary

    Her husband is in hell now, and sometimes, Rhea visits. Hades, as always, accompanies her down, though his presence could hardly be called comforting.

    When Rhea comes up from the down below, she is alone, until the time she isn’t.

    “What’s it like?” Demeter's daughter blurts out. “The Underworld, I mean?”

    Summary

    A trade deal, a successful negotiation, that was what her father was known for. He dealt with alien communities that would help their galaxy. His agency, Olympus Outreach, handled such situations with ease. Yet it is this organisation, Tartarus Inc. that proves to be a thorn in their side. Or is it perhaps their leader, one Lord Loki, who drives a harder bargain that most?

    That is, until he sees her and demands but one condition upon which to settle this agreement. She is to be his wife.

    It is her mother, the head of Demeter AgriCorp, a galaxy-wide organisation, that throws a wrench into the plan. She demands that her daughter remain with her for half the year.

    Being raised in the light and among nature, will she adapt to the shadows of her new home? Will she learn to see through the eyes of her heart and see the beauty offered by the dark?

    Summary

    It was different this time. His hand reached out, cupping her face. Persephone shut her eyes when she felt his lips touch her forehead. The waterfall that guarded the mouth of cave roared, though its sound was a distant and gentle rush in her ears. She felt his warm breath tickle her face, his scent of earth and sweat filling her nose. He sighed.
    “Do you want this?”
    “Yes,” she answered.

    Summary

    "No. He's not good enough for you, my dear. Did you see him? He may have been trying to cover it up with his fancy suit, but I can see through that. He has all the markings of a badboy - someone you don't want to get involved with."

    Persephone doesn't understand why people can't just leave them alone.

    Summary

    The atmosphere of Hadestown hadn’t changed, though not a lot of time has passed since Orpheus led Eurydice to the surface, an amazing feat unto itself. Persephone feels the love she once had for her husband blossom once again, like a spring flower. But what changed the most was the faith Hades has in his wife. Jealousy of the surface summer no longer clouding his mind. He feels something he thought was lost.
    Hades has become a more lenient king. Hadestown was never meant to be another version of hell. So once again, something that had not happened in a long time, the workers were allowed to clock out if only for a few hours. There wasn’t much else he could do. They had sold their souls for the relief of the numbness that Hadestown offered. Hades felt true happiness with Persephone willingly by his side. It had been many years since she could stand to be around him.
    Though one song can not mend everything.
