    Summary

    Theseus, haunted by the actions of the Minotaur before it was slain, seeks out the creature in Erebus in order to tie up the loose ends. He gets more than he bargained for: a conversation, a partner, a companion.

    (The story from life to afterlife of how Theseus and Asterius became partners.)

    Summary

    “Raise your foul weapons and fight me!”

    “Why do I even bother?” he hears him say. A sigh, and then the daemon lowers his weapon fully to his side. “Theseus, I know where Asterius is.”

    At that, Theseus—in the middle of prepping another toss of his spear—freezes.

    “Speak those words again.”

    “Well, I don’t know exactly where he is, but I’ve been everywhere throughout my father’s realm, so I have an idea where he might be held.”

    “So you lie!” Theseus cries, aghast.

    Or: Asterius is taken by Hades as punishment for Theseus' inability to defeat Zagreus. Zagreus feels guilty that he's caused the shades around him so much pain, but he's unwilling to give up on his quest. Instead, he suggests they find Asterius together. What could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    Theseus finds out that it kind of sucks to learn you're secretly a prince, and you need to go on an epic quest to claim your crown. But it also gives him an excuse to hire the absolute mountain of a minotaur who is looking for mercenary work, so it can't be all bad, right?

    A western European medieval fantasy AU with some fairytale elements, and Theseus having the poorest decision-making skills that somehow work in his favor. Mostly.

    Summary

    “I am repulsive.”

    Zagreus leaned back, mismatched eyes tracing Asterius’s face thoughtfully. Asterius often made self deprecating comments, but the use of the word ‘repulsive’ didn’t sound like it came from his own mouth. Someone had placed that word there in Asterius, a long time ago.

    “I know you were told this in life,” he began gently, slowly sliding the shoulder of the bulls chiton down. “By angry mortals, who felt powerful by belittling a child. I know all your time alone must have branded their words into you. So let me change them?” He cupped Asterius’s face in his hands, holding him so preciously. “I’ll teach you how beautiful you are.”

    Summary

    Theseus and Asterius finally start reuniting with people from their lives. Some reunions go well, others far less so.

    A comedy, a tragedy, a little bit of a love story.

    Summary

    “Lord Zeus, I call upon you!”

    ...Wait, Zeus?

    But Zagreus already has Zeus's Aid on his side. Surely the Gods of Olympus cannot double-book themselves.

    The moment is tense. Usually, this would be when Theseus surges with power and becomes invulnerable for a short while, as he barrages Zagreus with an assault from the god of his choosing. In this case, Zeus, apparently.

    Yet today, it does not come.

    Theseus calls for the almighty Zeus and his call is left unanswered.

    ---

    King Theseus finds that the daemon prince and the Minotaur stir something within him that he wishes could remain long buried. But the past refuses to stay in the past.

    Summary

    Ну и что, что он много рыбачил? Ну да, это просто предлог, чтобы провести больше времени с Астерием! В этом нет ничего такого! Ну, разве что... он до сих пор не решил, что делать со всеми этими устрицами.

    Summary

    It's not unusual for them to use sexual favors as a wager: the victor takes what he wishes, and the loser gives it. That is how rivalry is, Theseus has explained.

    Asterius isn't so sure that this is about winning and losing anymore. Perhaps the king wants something else.

    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

    "They are ignorant fools," Theseus said. "As I was, before I knew you." He put his hand on Asterius's shoulder, turning him so that they faced one another. "They don't know anything." Theseus stretched up on his tiptoes, drawing Asterius down to a reachable height. "I will prove to them that you are my husband in more than just name," he said, and kissed him. Their mouths felt strange against one another, but Theseus persisted in his efforts, and gradually Asterius began to open to him, his thick tongue grazing against his lips.

    "Come to bed with me, Asterius," he said when they drew apart for breath. "Let me prove the truth of my feelings to you too."

    Summary

    When it became clear he couldn't escape the human's arms yet again, his passion bled away, leaving him limp and pathetic there, pressed into the sand. The human released him; he cannot say how long after, as this is when his memory begins to crumble into fragments.

    He thinks...he thinks the human wasn't pleased. It spoke to itself, walked around him and he didn't listen to its words.

    Then the human...grabbed him? Pulled him. And he hadn't fought. He hadn't listened, either--he should have listened; it could have been explaining things. He could have listened, and learned what it said to bargain for his passage onto the ferryman's boat.

    --

    The Bull of Minos is brought to Elysium by his murderer and begins the long trial of acclimating to an afterlife as one of the exalted; a great oddity among great men.

    Summary

    Dionysus wants to get his mother out of the Underworld, and his wife, Ariadne, wants to meet her half-brother, the Minotaur. That was the plan, originally. But it turns out, the Fates have other consequences in mind for their visits to Hades.
    Alternatively: Dionysus wants to see his mama, Ariadne wants to see her brother, Hypnos gets a gf, and ThanZag get a baby at the end of the day.

    Summary

    Trials of Apollo (Specifically Burning Maze) Spoilers! Skip if you haven't read.
    There's a prologue to this named 'A Prelude to Chaos'. Read for context!

    ASTERIUS had wished for this for a long time. If only some mortal had told him the idiom about that.

    JASON would really prefer it if he could adjust to being a minotaur in some place close to home, but not everyone can get what they want.

    WILL is just trying to keep up. It's not his fault that the gods paired him off with the two smartest people in the group, is it?

    ALEX knew that nothing compared to Valhalla, but darn, this place wasn't even trying.

    Twelve demigods get stuffed into a brand new world and try to make sense of it all. If only there weren't people actively trying to destroy it.

    An isekai fic! If you don't know about FFXIV, it's alright, the demigods (and Asterius) don't either.

    Summary

    Nyx gets word from the Fates that Patroclus’s time in Elysium is up and should return to Tartarus, while Achilles goes to Elysium as planned. As Achilles accepts his fate in potentially never seeing Patroclus again, Hades strikes a deal with him.

    “You will journey to Elysium and find Patroclus. There’s a rumor of Hector, the Trojan Prince that ended your lover’s life, has taken interest in him. Be warned that the rules of paradise are not the same within these walls, the dead don’t need honor...Elysium is massive and souls might be territorial. Watch your back and...don’t keep me waiting Pelides”

    Achilles must travel into the depths of Elysium, encountering familiar and unfamiliar characters from his mortal days, to find Patroclus and change fate once again.
