    Summary

    Zagreus had reunited Patroclus with Achilles, and everything was going well between the two of them.

    That is, until one day, Patroclus wakes with no memory of himself or who he once was.

    Patroclus may not know who the golden haired man was that came to visit him, but there is something about him that draws him in—And he wants to know more.

    His memories are not the only mystery to be solved, as Achilles, Zagreus, and Thanatos set out to find what made the fallen myrmidon drink.

    *Spoilers for Hades Clear 10 and The Song of Achilles

    (This fic was loosely inspired by “Leave by the River” by firefly_quill !)

    Summary

    Zagreus' life in the most boring Midwestern town imaginable is decidedly ordinary. It becomes less so when he learns that nineteen years ago, his mother, who happens to be a goddess, escaped the Underword and moved so far away from home that none of his relatives there or on Olympus would ever find them.

    And he's a god. Apparently.

    Now that Hades has found out Zagreus is alive and on the surface, he wants his son to return to the Underworld—and he'll take him back by force if need be. The only safe way to keep Zagreus above the surface is to get him to the Olympians, but he can't make it there alone. Nyx assigns one of her sons to escort him: Thanatos, Death Incarnate, who doesn't know how to drive, hates Zag's taste in road trip snacks, and has never been kissed.

    Zag's not sure why that last one feels so important.

    Summary

    “Why do I have to take care of her? I don’t know anything about her! I don’t even know her name!” Hades spoke aloud. They couldn’t just put him on the spot like this.

    “You have to take care of her, because she’s like you, also because WE SAID SO!” Hera spat back, motioning to Zeus and herself.

    At this point they were bickering like children.

    “Well I don’t care if you said so-“

    Then she walked in, bandages, bright white eyes, and looking as fragile as a flower.

    AU!! *this is non canon*

    A story where Persephone has scars just like Hades, and he has to take care of her because well uh she’s in danger of getting more of those scars due to a ahem, CERTAIN GOD.

    and our sweet bb is hurting real bad :,(. But that’s okay because we have a blue boy to help heal her. :)

    Summary

    I’m not afraid of the world itself. I’m afraid of waking up knowing that you’re not in it. I tried to keep my distance—but the world doesn’t work without you in it.

    or

    Zagreus believes it’s finally time for him to break free of his father’s grasp. Thanatos promised to help him, but he can’t think of what it would be like to let him go.

    Summary

    !!! IMPORTANT NOTICE !!!
    This story is being published on AMAZON. It will be available from May 31, 2021. If you're reading, please hurry up, it's going to be deleted here on AO3!

     

    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

    Zagreus has been successful: Persephone has returned and their family is whole once again — Olympus included. The completed royal family of the Underworld lives peacefully, with no other looming threads to face. But, they have not dealt with one:

    Hades would not have an Heir. The Fates do not falter, nor do they ever declare a prophecy in jest. Hades would not have an heir…

    ...Perhaps this is what they meant.

    (There is something different about Zagreus).

    Summary

    Zagreus has been dying more often, in styles of gradually increasing hilarity. Though this in itself isn't too unusual, there is the matter of his poor recollection of these deaths, strange occurrences throughout the Underworld, and how the records appear to be lying about the causes of his demise. He soon takes matters into his own hands, though as the anomalies persist, Zagreus finds himself plunged into entirely unfamiliar territory—a domain out of even the Olympians' reach. One that intends to keep him locked in.

    (Or, a tale of gods "helping" gods, featuring unsolicited therapeutic healing, child cults, the power of increasingly tenuous one-sided friendship, gardens that grow in your head, conflicting prophecies, and the unfortunate implications of afterlife)

    Summary

    "Persephone knows that she should be happy about it. About how everything in the world is trying to show off its very best for her. She should. Everyone expects her to. Everyone thinks the smile on her face is real, but it’s not. It’s a mask, one she’s grown tired of wearing. It’s exhausting after so long. She wishes she could just make it all stop."

    What if Persephone found her way to the Underworld on her own? What if she chose to stay there because it was a much kinder place than the surface? What if she found a new family there, one that was far better for her than the one she knew from Olympus?

    Summary

    As the doors to the train car closed, 51% of Kim Dokja stared out. Moving closer to the window, he silently watched his companions and Avatar walk into the sunlight, laughing excitedly in their new life. With a silent jolt, the subway train began to pull out of the station.

    This was made as part of a Fanwork Sprint I hosted on the ORV Discord.
