    Summary

    Perhaps it was the influence she held herself under like a head under water, perhaps it was wishful thinking of a wife who could no longer tell love from hate. But - with all the resentment she held for that man - she never once had doubt in his loyalty.

    Summary

    She knew it was a work in progress, they both did—one couldn’t patch a gaping wound with a single plaster, had to instead sew it up one stitch at a time. Their wound was closed but still raw, a ripe, angry red that still throbbed and ached when her mind fixated upon it for too long.

    Summary

    Desperate times call for desperate measures, as they say. Some take this as moving around at the sudden sense of change, or working relentlessly to keep a sense of order; as though that will allow the right to be given a legacy. Others only want to restore things to the way they were, or find a way to help those struggling the most recover, at least for a little. Whichever way the wind may blow, it takes a lot to create good harmony with love. See, someone’s got to tell the tale, whether or not it turns out well. But maybe it will turn out this time?

    An old song given new voices and some slight modulations. Characters from Soul Eater combined with the musical Hadestown: The tales of Orpheus and Eurydice, along with Hades and Persephone, in folksy jazz and blues. This time, you could say there’s a little more madness and soul involved.

    Summary

    it’s 1939, and there’s no better place to be than nyc. Hades, the president of one of the largest and wealthiest industrial firms, only gets richer as everyone tries to move on from the Great Depression. Eurydice, his shy, soft-spoken intern, is especially floundering at the moment, but at least she has her lover, Orpheus, a “relative” of Persephone. with Orpheus’ part time job as a bartender at Mr. Hermès’ place—the best jazz bar that side of Broadway—it’s barely enough to keep the two of them afloat.

    Summary

    “I’ll do anything,” Orpheus says. His knees are beginning to buckle under him. “I’ll work in the mines. I’ll work on the wall.”

    “Son, you wouldn’t last a day down there,” the god drawls.

    “Then I’ll sing,” he croaks. “I’ll sing for your workers to keep them in line. I’ll sing for your wife, to keep her underground. Please…” He glances back at the house—really more of a shack—where Eurydice lies by the dwindling fire. “I can’t let her starve.”

    Silence. Then, a quirk of the lips—not really a smile, but the gesture of one. “I suppose I could use a canary.”

    Summary

    It was Hades who broke first, his dark eyes locking again onto her honeyed ones and pinning her in place. 

    “I missed ya.”

    The words were the same, always the same, but held such a vastly different meaning this time ‘round.
