    Summary

    Persephone had only ever known her mother's farms and gardens, but everything changes when a dark stranger meets her at the gate. Suddenly, Persephone is ready to throw everything she knows away for her pursuit of happiness.

    A multi-chapter fic where I flesh out how I think Persephone and Hades married in the Hadestown universe. Naturally, there will be some deviation from the actual mythology, but hopefully it'll be fluffy and fun.

    Summary

    We all know Greek gods and goddesses and we have a mental imagine of them, a world with its own twists where they live on our rules. I've done this too.
    Have you ever applied the common cliche of sadness behind a smile to Dionysus? The god of wine and ecstasy has to be the happiest of them. Maybe he's not. Plus he's the god of madness and, honestly, what do we know about madness? Shall we take a look on the god's life?
    This is Dionysus' journey as a god, but not only that: there's a world around him, a world that wants something from him. Where is madness going to take him? A world has gone mad and now it reclaims his lord.

    "Sometimes madness is the only way to stay sane."

    Summary

    “Divine, perfect Persephone.” He crooned, tangling his hand in her hair and kissing her once again.

    It all made sense then, the goddess of Spring and the god of the Dead.

    Summary

    Re-telling of the Olympian Rebellion against Zeus.

    "My love," Zeus said, his voice sounding absolutely terrifying in its calm. "I suggest that you release these bonds now. I could possibly see myself being lenient with you, with you both... unless you hesitate. What you have enacted here is treason and there will be a price for it."

    Summary

    Hades and Persephone has always been a cautionary tale, of how disobedience leads to destruction, of how Death is dangerous and cruel and cunning, of how easily innocent maidens can be fooled. But what if the tale that has been told and retold for centuries wasn't true? What if Hades and Persephone was truly a tale of hidden potential, self-discovery and love persevering against all odds?

    ~~

    Or, a tale of the Ruler of the Underworld and the Goddess of Spring, except they are both powerful this time

    Summary

    So if you haven't able to tell based off everything about me, I love Greek Mythology. I've been wanting to write a story like this for a long time and I finally started making it. These are just retellings of popular stories from mythology.
    This work is mostly dedicated to my main encouragers from the octonauts fan-discord. They sit through my rants about men forced to sleep by their lovers and heroes slaying demons. I care about them more than I can put into words. So as all my works are and will be, this is dedicated to them. Love ya'll.

    Oh also real quick, I posted a bust of each of the muses on my tumblr if you're curious of my version or need to put a name to a face. (https://squijis-art-hole.tumblr.com/)

    Disclaimer: Greek Mythology is fucked up in all kinds of ways. There are also many different versions to one story. I do have bad news that I'm most likely going to keep some of the terrible things humans and gods alike have done to one another. I'm trying to humanize gods and humans more but still, gods are fickle and do as they please, humans are more monsters than the ones they pray to their gods to remove.
    I'll give warnings at the beginning.

    Summary

    Persephone goes up to Argentina to visit her mom for spring as always, and Hades decides he wants to see what spring is like (and maybe wants to spend some more time with his wife) and joins her. At first, while Demeter feels awkward about being around her daughter's husband who she does not know well, she eventually realizes Hades knows nothing about spring or agriculture and decides she must show him the wonders of the flora of Earth in spring. Persephone is just happy to spend some more time with her husband, and all the while Hades is desperately stumbling through one disastrous social interaction after another.

    Basically a modern-day Greek mythology fic about family, marriage, and spring. Takes place in Argentina which I know nothing about, I apologize.
