    Summary

    A sacrifice and a lover leads Macaria to face her Fate as a Goddess of Death.

     

    An exploration of the story of how Macaria becomes Makaria the Goddess of Blessed Death and somewhat also an exploration of some of the gender issues that can be found in ancient myths, specifically Greek ones relating to Herakles, and the dramas that they inspired, particularly Eurydice's Heracladaie.

    Summary

    After Demeter left the world of the gods behind forever, to raise her daughter as a mortal, the world she knew changed. Persephone Chloros broke from her mothers restrictive hold and fear based teachings, taking shelter in the big city of New Olympia where she would meet The Big Six, the Gods who now controlled every aspect of mortals lives through business and property. Among those she meets Hades, who aids her in figuring out exactly where she belongs.

    Summary

    In life we come across different people at different times of our lives. How they once were can change quickly to who they are, but what causes something like that to happen? Take this journey into a modern telling of a forbidden love story between the Queen of Olympus, Hera, and the King of the Underworld, Hades. The love that they share will result in a life being born, but not an ordinary life. No, a life that was born from both Light and Darkness that shall overthrow a tyrant King and rule everything from the highest of the Heavens to the lowest of the Underworld. Can this child live up to the prophecy told about her, or will she crumble under the pressures of life and the secrets it holds?

    Summary

    Subtly but persistently, the megalomaniac Skyfather Zeus promotes a culture of rivalry and enmity among his subjects to ensure his reign over Olympos lasts for an eternity. And though Zeus' methods work spectacularly, each Olympian still retains some kin that they love and cherish — while utterly despising many others. This compilation shall explore the love, the hate, the loving hate, and the hating love on Olympos. For in the end, these feelings may all be one and the same.

    Summary

    Persephone leaned back; her body propped up by her elbows. She then untied her wrap at her waist, freeing her legs for more movement. Hades eyes widened as she lifted her delicate foot in the air, her toes dragging along his forearm and bicep, until her ankle rested on his shoulder. The edge of her chiton had raised up as well, and her thighs were exposed, to his delight. Hades let his fingertip trail from her thigh, swirling around her knee and calf, on up to her shin, until he captured her ankle. He brought it to his face, letting the tip of his nose trace lines up and down the side of her leg. He held eye contact with her as he pressed a kiss to her ankle, and then parted his lips to lick where she had asked. To her erotic surprise, he extended his full serpentine tongue, letting it slither and slurp her flesh as it circled her ankle before he sucked it back into his mouth.
    She made a guttural noise in her throat, deep and ravenous, as she watched him loop his tongue around her ankle again before drawing it back and placing one last kiss on the side of her ankle. He grinned another sharp toothed grin, the sclera's of his eyes flashing red as she quivered.
    “Where else shall I kiss you?” he asked.

    Summary

    Seraphina would have smacked you in the face with a sharpie(don't try this at home ya'll sheesh) if you had told her that she'd be evading Tom Riddle's advances and trying to survive Grindelwald's attacks while completing dangerous tasks given to her by the Greek Gods at the same time. In the 1940's of all things.

    Life as a demigod certainly got weird as hell, but nothing could have prepared her for Dumbledore sending her to the past and declaring her status as dead to her friends.

    She is tasked to prevent the Wizarding Wars, and she is determined to do so.

    But a certain Slytherin is too curious for his own good, and doesn't know how to take a hint.

    OR where Tom Riddle is the bane of her existence, but they adore each other so it's kind of fine.

    Summary

    Nacida en los '90, universitaria, bajita y con muchos amigos humanos: Perséfone realmente tiene un pésimo currículo divino. Los mortales no le rinden culto, los Dioses no la invitan a sus eventos, y eso funciona para ella. O al menos eso es lo que cree.
    Todo cambia cuando conoce a Hades, Dios de los muertos, en una ponencia. Él también tiene sus problemas: trescientos mil años de edad, siete pies de alto, al menos veinte títulos en su nombre. Pero también es el único que comprende la pasión de Perséfone por las leyes, así como el único que parece tan incómodo como ella entre las otras deidades. ¿Cómo podrían no entenderse?
    Ellos entrelazarán sus destinos y trabajarán juntos para resolver un juicio controversial, colaborando en una investigación en la corte del Inframundo. Y también, entre la ironía y la seriedad, la justicia y el rigor, la vida y la muerte, esta es una (semi) moderna interpretación de un mito que nunca dejó de contarse.

    Summary

    Hatsume Mei has made a machine that uses DNA to portray that respective person's alternate universes. Curious to see how they would react?

    If you like the universe, comment down if you wanna make it real.

    (For those in which I have solid plots in, I actually would make it real. Might take some time, though.)
     
    (Let's make this clear, I have every right to deny a request. If I don't feel comfortable with it, if it's too complicated for me, I will deny it as politely as possible. If I do manage to say 'okay' but fail to follow through, I deeply apologize. I care for your entertainment, but this is my story, too.)

    (REQUESTS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED)

    There will be no underage sex or something like that here. The Eri/Kouta tag is for when they're in U.A.

    Summary

    Poetry Prose retelling of Hades and Persephone in the style of the Homeric Hymns.

    - Author's Note-

    In this canon, Hephaistos, Athena, Hermes, Demeter, Hekate and Hestia and Hera, the Judges and the Erinyes are to varying degrees, the good guys in how they interact with Hades and Persephone. Artistic license has been taken to deliberately give some characters more likeability than others so certain myths about them will be omitted or otherwise discounted as non-canon to my canon.

    Dionysus rests awkwardly in the middle. The reason being will become clear in the next few chapters.

    Zeus, Aries, Apollo, Aphrodite and Poseidon are opposed to Hades and will be seen and rightfully portrayed as the morally bankrupt, lecherous, petty, egotistical, life-ruining assholes and shitheads that they should be seen as.

    This epic homeric hymn style poetry with I admit a touch of nordic edda style verse will be short. I aim to spend between 5 to 10 chapters telling this story.

    Summary

    (WORK IN PROGRESS)

    Greek mythology in a slight modern setting. It's kind of complicated but basically when they grow up, gods have to go to this boarding school called Ravenwood Academy. After graduating the various levels/ grades, they are allowed to attend Olympus. However, after every millennia, they have to go back to the academy to take a course to prove that they are still worthy of a spot on Olympus. This is the story of Hera going back. I've added in my own original characters and I played around with the mythology a bit so if you find anything unfamiliar that's probably why. I know this isn't very detailed and I'm sorry but just give it a read, that all I'm asking 😊

    Summary

    **Flower Shop AU**

    A loud, clangorous *CRUNCH!!* crackled around the man as he jerked the door practically off it's hinges, completely unhindered by the bolted lock.

    "What the hell?! Hey!" Persephone shrieked at the stranger who had just mangled her doorframe as he continued, single mindedly, towards the service counter.

    The stranger's hands slapped down onto the formica countertop with a hard *BANG!* "How do I say 'fuck you' in flower?!"

    Summary

    A re-telling of the Hades and Persephone abduction myth.

    There are countless reasons why they shouldn't be together, but perhaps their love is divine enough to conquer all obstacles.

    Summary

    Hades is meant to be alone. As the God of The Dead, he knows that logically, he was never supposed to fall in love. But when he sees her, soft and sweet, little flowers in her hair and on her skin, his traitorous heart screams to be near her, to hold and protect her, to do whatever she asks without question. To make her his Queen.

    And that terrifies him.

     

    (a.k.a. Hades is in Love and has no idea how to handle it)
