    Summary

    Silence. Theta holds her breath, praying to all the gods she doesn’t know she if she believes in for the professor not to pick her. 'Please don’t pick me, please don’t make me say that…' she silently begs. The professor’s eyes settle on her and her own go wide, hearts pounding -
    “Koschei.” He suddenly says, and when she snaps her head round to the boy sitting beside her, her eyes widen further when she sees his hand in the air.
    “Intercourse.” He answers calmly, and Theta jerks her gaze away, hearts going mad in her chest.

    Summary

    Koschei's name was drawn the year before hers, and he slaughtered almost half the tribute field personally, claiming the first victory for their District and becoming an overnight sensation. Media darling Caesar Flickerman had dubbed him The Master, a title that stuck, and he plays his part well, but as soon as the cameras are off, darkness always comes floating back towards the surface. He mentored Theta while his own pain was still fresh, and dismissed her as a lost cause as soon as the second name was drawn. The other tribute for District 3 that year was Koschei's friend, classmate, and neighbor, and Koschei all but told her that he would throw her to the wolves and focus the entirety of his attention on supporting her male counterpart.
     
    That favoritism did not matter in the end. His friend died first, and Theta won the shortest games on record. Thirty-six hours, one meticulously engineered mass slaughter, and it was over.
     
    Fifteen years have passed since then, and he still has not forgiven her. 

     
    Sometimes you just impulsively start writing a Hunger Games AU without knowing whether or not people still read those.

    Summary

    Poseidon keeps getting offerings from Percy’s baby sister. He doesn’t quite know how to feel about this small child vying for his attention…At the very least he would keep Zeus from blowing up whenever her prayers interrupted council meetings.

    Or

    Rick Riordan gave us Estelle Blofis and I am thrilled. She's going to get Poseidon to attend family events even if every god on Olympus kills her.

    Summary

    Aziraphale wakes up after a celebratory dinner at the Ritz and finds himself in a world where Hell won, Heaven lost, and angels have been taken as prisoners of war and subjected to all sorts of heinous behavior at the hands of demons in Hell. To right the world, Aziraphale will have to make strange alliances and figure out how to get Crowley, his new "owner", on his side.

    If only it were that easy.
