    Summary

    The last few weeks of the war won't bring relief, only more pain. It still has to be dealt with, however, from the realisation of the inevitable end, through the death of heroes, to the fall of a city. The humans involved in the war bleed and die and suffer for it, but the immortal eyes and hearts watching are not left untouched, either.

    The lot of sacred Troy is death and destruction, with stars and songs to carry its memory.

    Summary

    It's several hundred years after the Trojan war, even more than that since Ganymede was taken to Olympos, and suddenly everything seems a lot easier. Ganymede also has a lot more interest to spare for how life actually does go on. So what about a visit to Athens? Zeus is always indulgent, though he might have been more interested to stay on Olympos at first. And, too, this is a year of the Olympic games, as well.

    Running can be an expression of joy and life, after all, and not just an attempt at getting away (from an eagle, from your emotions, from terrible reality). And sometimes you even want to be caught, but that comes later.

    Summary

    There was a story of a wicked woman. A step-mother. A hag. A harridan. A nag. Her husband (according to him ) was long suffering. His former girlfriend the titan of memory was no help for remembering how things went.

    This woman was bad news. She screamed. She raged. She stormed. She didn't bring sweetness and light into the world. That was how the story went. At least that's how Zeus told the tale.

    Summary

    Achilles is ordered by Athena to kill a Trojan prince, but the boy is fast and flees into the supposed safety of the nearby temple.

    In war, nothing is safe, and Achilles has little patience even when sacrilege would mean angering not just a god, but also Troilus' father.

    Summary

    Ganymede is not in place to serve during the meetings in that last year of the war - how early did he get relieved of his task, and how did it happen? Apollo does what he can to soften the stress of the building conflict, but he's burdened by the knowledge of how inevitable it all is, and can only do so much.

    Summary

    Sometimes it doesn't matter how well you plan.

    Sometimes it takes only one, impossibly insignificant and terribly important person to make the wrong decision, and you just have to deal with the fallout. But before that, there are apples, and a wedding!

    Who doesn't like weddings?

    Summary

    Ganymede's first huge party comes with a lot less concern about his performance than the family party of a year and a half ago, but a lot more relationship insecurity and homesickness. There's help to get, though.

    Summary

    “... beat aside a shameful destruction from Kronos' son the dark-misted that time when all the other Olympians sought to bind him, Hera and Poseidon and Pallas Athene.” (The Iliad, Book I)

    It's about Zeus as much as it's not. Mostly it's about Hera, the lies and truths she tells herself and others, her choices in how to act and what she does during the situation she's created. It's also just as much about Ganymede and what he chooses to do during this selfsame situation, for really, does he not have some grievances as well? This doesn't even take into account choosing to take the risk to walk straight into Hera during the one chance she might have to do something about his presence on Olympos.

    Summary

    There are princes taken for such woes as women knows after a city has fallen in war, for the beauty of youth may inflame just the same.

    In a version of the past where the Olympians are leaders among the Achaean people, Troy struggles against invaders... and loses one of its most treasured princes, not to death, but to enemy hands.

    Summary

    Just an excuse to have fun with the effects of Aphrodite's girdle, as inspired by That Scene in the Iliad.

    Summary

    Zeus goes to Crete every year for Velchania to celebrate what's technically his birthday. Zeus goes to Velchania alone and quite enjoys it either way, for Hera has never found the particulars of how the three-day celebration affects her husband particularly enchanting.

    Zeus always goes alone... except this year, there's Ganymede. And Ganymede will get quite a surprise as to how Zeus celebrates Velchania.

    Summary

    For Ganymede, Olympos and its lord could just as well be an underwater abyss for as deeply unfamiliar and mysterious as both are to him. As he settles in and starts to learn, though, perhaps the water isn't so deep, the chasm not so strange and dark.

    For Zeus, Ganymede is an exception.

    Summary

    Tried to keep you close to me
    But life got in between
    Tried to square not being there
    But think that I should have been

     

    Just because you yourself have become immortal doesn't mean the rest of the world is, something which Ganymede has to face, now, decades after being brought to Olympos. He does at least get a chance to say goodbye.
