    Summary

    Technoblade went by many names in your land- King of Kreig, Blood God, monster, murderer, cold-blooded killer...

    All you had ever heard your entire life were his wicked deeds, how he had overthrown King Schlatt and hung him on a spike over the kingdom walls, how he hid his face from the world with a pig skull mask.

    The very mention of him sent venom down your veins, filling you with hatred for the pain he had caused to the people.

    Nonetheless, his reputation and influence were terrible and far-reaching, so when Technoblade sent word he was searching for a bride, your parents didn't hesitate.

    Now, you had no choice but to marry the man you hated more than anything else.

    Summary

    (This fic takes place 2 weeks after the events of Episode 5 of Helluva Boss but it's an alternate turn of events that occur-meaning that Episode 6 and onward don't happen, also Blitzo's comments about Octavia from Loo-Loo Land don't happen(cause ew); however some lore/backstory vary and apply)

    2 weeks after everything almost had gone wrong at the Harvest Moon Festival, Striker arrives with Bombproof and abducts Blitzo after wreaking havoc in the Pride ring. Moxxie, Millie and Loona don't know where he's vanished to, so they're left to run I.M.P AND figuring out what happened to their boss while all of Hell was in utter chaos due to prior unfortunate events in this retelling of the Hades and Persephone myth...only with hellish cowboys.

    Summary

    ‘—I saw that they, um.’ Dick sighs again. ‘They have the Joker, Bruce.’

    Bruce’s fingertips go numb.

    (And there’s that illusion, he’s aware, that illusion like mise en abyme. A story inside of a story, a picture inside of a picture: and him inside of himself, stuck, hands against a foggy mirror. Get out, get out, get out, get out. You mean nothing to me. I would do anything for you.)

    ‘What,’ he says flatly. He’s bitten his cheek. He tastes gunpowder.

    --

    Nygma and Cobblepot have the Joker. Bruce panics.

    Summary

    "Please consider what I’m about to say. Think of it as you return to your mother. You must put as much thought into it as you can. Will you? Please, promise me you will.”

    “Yes! Whatever it is, I’ll consider it.”

    “Eventually Lord Hades will have mercy upon you. He will. I know that must sound strange—the most severe of the gods showing mercy where his kindred won’t—but it’s the truth. The Olympians are more… unreliable. The only way I can see to protect the Underworld and in turn you and your mother is this: Bind yourself to me.” His hands tremble. He brushes his thumb along the crook of Zag’s throat, so very sweet, even when he’s rigid with tension. “Wed me.”

     

    Raised by his mother far away from both Olympus and the Underworld, a strange series of events leads Zagreus to meeting a faceless, nameless Chthonic god.

    Summary

    Since usurping the throne of Alderaan a decade ago, Emperor Snoke has banned the use of magical powers within the kingdom. Only Snoke himself and his elite Imperial Guard are allowed to wield magic for their own cruel, destructive ends.

    Rey is an orphan of Snoke's war of conquest and survives as a scavenger in the wastes of Jakku. The threat of death for using illicit magic is no concern of hers - until it is.

    Kylo Ren, the most fearsome of all of Snoke's masked warriors, sees something in Rey she'd rather he didn't. To protect her from Snoke, he hides her away in his abandoned ancestral home, teaching her how to wield the powers she barely understands. Rey's lonely - until she starts being visited at night by the mysterious Ben, whose face she can never look upon, but whose soul shines to her despite the darkness...

    Or: A quasi-medieval retelling of Eros and Psyche, with lashings of Beauty and the Beast.

    Summary

    A retelling of the myth of Eros & Psyche.

    An ancient artifact awakens in Magical Britain. Drama ensues. Hermione Granger doesn't have time for rubbish like having her marriage arranged by a semi-sentient cup, only it seems she doesn't have much choice in the matter. How is she supposed to help replenish the population of magical Britain when she doesn't even know her husband's name, and she's never seen his face? And is she actually falling in love with someone who might as well be a ghost? Of course not. That would be ridiculous.

    Herein contains: a library as a bribe (a bribrary, if you will), too much tea drinking, and more nonsense than you can shake a wand at. Enjoy!

    Summary

    "Once upon a time, in a universe far, far away, there were gods. But there were a great many things that had existed too. Loneliness, longing. Love. The gods lived with all of these, struggled with them just as everyone else has had to. Indeed, life has always been life. Perhaps the only difference is that they’ve been doing this for longer.”

    OR

    Kylo Ren is the exiled god of Olympus, who stumbles upon a confused Rey whom everyone wants to kidnap. So he gets ahead of the curve and takes her first.

    aka the angsty Eros x Psyche Modern Greek Mythology AU nobody asked for, but with a touch of crack and a side of redemption.
