    Summary

    Who weeps for Adonis? Who weeps for the hunter
    Whose ivory skin is sprawled and tainted
    By a boar’s tusk? His purple lips and sunken eyes
    Will make no kisses now.

    Summary

    Written 6/10/2020

    It might just be a phase I have to go through before i find my new norm. But I don't have the answers that I crave.

    I worry that by the time I have those answers I won't have the power to articulate it.

    I articulate this now in hopes of preserving myself. However I hope I can look back on this time capsule of my life and laugh it off as thinking i was so deep and gothic about life.

    I genuinely want to have my good humor in a forseeable future above all else.

    But if it's not just pretentious gothic prose. And I won't grow out of it. Then that means this might be my last authetic self I'm willing to share.

    This is a real, albeit warped reality that I live in. Not a metaphor for life. Every time I have an episode I lose a little more of...something. I'm not sure what that something is and I don't know if I'll ever get it back.

    I'm ready for answers and all that it entail. And I'll be sorely pissed if this is the thing I'm best remembered for.

    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

    Zufrieden lehnte ich mich an eine große Eiche und genoss die Sonnenstrahlen, die schräg von einem beinahe wolkenlosen Himmel einfielen. Doch plötzlich wurde meine Ruhe gestört. Unwirsch sah ich mich um, da lautes Rufen, Waffengeklirr und aufgeregtes Pferdewiehern von der anderen Seite der Lichtung erschollen.

Pero en medio de tanta sangre y arena, Epífanes descubrirá que los dioses todavía tienen otro propósito para él, cuando repentinamente cupido lo flecha con su flecha de oro a un sereno joven esclavo de hermoso pelo dorado llamado Martinus, cuyo amo es Benedictus, el consul más rico de Roma.

    Summary

    Antinous remembers the first time his dominus kneeled before him, but not as well as he remembers the first time he didn't let it happen.

    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

    Day Eight - Majesty

    One hand, its fingers traced with faint scars, spread over the mortar to guard the powder he was making, faintly smelling of wood and smoke and sweetness. “There is a tale,” he said, “of the myrhh tree. But it is a sad one.”

    Summary

    Thor is distraught by Loki's sacrifice on the Dark World. He never in a million years would have thought it would happen. He is determined to fix it somehow. He is forbidden from bringing him back... but Odin didn't say Thor couldn't stop it from happening at all. This time, armed with knowledge of how much his little brother bottled everything inside, Thor was going to ensure mistakes weren't repeated.

     

    A Time Travel Fix-it where Loki really did die and Thor goes back to save his brother before he needs saving. A strange hybrid of marvel bits and actual Norse mythos all crammed into angsty wrapping. Not a Quick Fix-it. Epic Length Story Warning It'll take time for things to get solved.

    Summary

    A semi-modern, queer, femme-centric retelling of the tale of Cupid and Psyche, specifically based on Apuleius' "The Golden Ass" (yes, that is the real name, and no it isn't why I chose this to base my work off) (I totally would though). Because being lonely and upset even when men worship your beauty speaks to my gay sensibilities.
