    Summary

    In Konoha mythology, shinobi summons live in the underworld, mingling with the spirits of the dead. Twice a year, when the day and night are of equal length, doors open between the two worlds, allowing those who stumble upon them to pass through.

    When Iruka unknowingly passes by one of these doors, something is waiting for him in the shadows. Something that smells the kyuubi on him and lures him through into the other world for its own nefarious purposes.

    Kakashi follows him into the underworld, determined to bring him back. But he better find Iruka before the dawn, because once the sun rises the doors will close, and whoever’s left on the wrong side will be trapped with no way home.

    Summary

    The story keeps finding its way to Inej again and again, endlessly repeating, like the eternal refrain of a song.

    Once, there was a man named Orpheus who so loved his wife, that when she died, he journeyed to the underworld to bring her back to life.

    And Inej does not know why she keeps hearing it, or why it keeps coming to her in dreams, the story echoing loudly in her heartbeat. It is as if the universe is saying, This is important. Listen.

    And so she does.

    Or: Kaz and Inej before, during, and post Six of Crows, their lives running parallel to the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice.

    Summary

    In which Tommy is hailed as a god by the people of a hidden island and SBI tries to get him back from the grasps of a sinister masked prophet.

    Tommy woke to the taste of blood, eery darkness, and unbearable pain. Like every bone in his body had shattered into tiny shards and pierced into his skin like steel knives. Like he’d been lit on fire from the inside out.

    Burning raging pain across his skin on his left arm and wing, raking across his skin in tiny, sharp bolts of pain as he desperately tried to move- to do cry out in pain, to roll over, anything.

    “He wakes! His eyelids are fluttering, my lord!” A voice yelled and Tommy winced backwards at the sound.

    There was a sound of a scuffle, and Tommy glimpsed a faint white light growing stronger by the second.

    And then, pressure over his wounded wing. Claws, sinking into his feathers, ripping away at them, scorching him. Fire exploded through his veins, burning, scorching his insides like liquid magma.

    Then agony subsided into the welcoming darkness of unconsciousness.

    Summary

    “‘I’ll wait for you forever,’ Nico had said.

    ‘He’s waiting,’ he thought, ‘don’t keep him waiting.’

    But everyone here seemed so opposed to the idea of him dying. Why did he have to defy the odds so well? He should have bled out on death’s feet in the elevator from hell, why was he here?

    Don’t keep him waiting.

    Just then, he got the stupidest idea he’d ever had in his life. If he couldn’t be dead with Nico, then he’d be alive with Nico. One way or another he would do it.”

    Summary

    “Lan, heed this old king. You may enter the gates of Diyu and witness for yourself the Ten Courts of Hell. What you see will forever taint your mind and spirit, as for the wish you so beg of me...you may try. I will give you no map, nor guide to find him, and if, by chance you do, you may lead him back to the mortal realm. On one condition”
    Wangjis heart was rapid, he knew the journey would be near impossible, and that he would face the consequences, however, the coward in him feared for himself.
    “Wei Wuxian will walk behind you, unable to touch or speak. Lan, you must keep your head forward and your heart stubborn if you wish to succeed. If doubt begins to plague you and you turn to take a glance, then hell will take him from you, you will get no second chance.”

    Summary

    It’s an old song. It’s a sad tale-

    It’s a tragedy.

    But we tell it anyway, in the hopes that maybe, maybe, this time will turn out better. Maybe there will be a happy ending, at some point.

    Maybe this time, we will finally see the ending they deserve.

    Summary

    Argonaut stops thinking, stops trying to think about if he even knows what thinking about something feels like. The hellhound is dragging him somewhere, long canine teeth digging into his leg. Is this what pain is? Or is it the absence of pain, that dull ache that’s pervading Argo’s every fiber of being in such a way that he’s never felt before. Maybe he has felt like this before. He’s not sure he’d know the difference between fact and reality at this point, or if he ever did.
