    Summary

    Imperious God of the Underworld, Hades, deigns to have a long overdue conversation with his impetuous son. Thus begins a mythic instance of "family bonding."

    [Hades asks Zagreus about his relationships—and his intentions, going forward—and reveals a bit about his own. Y'all ever get a moment of emotional vulnerability from a distant father figure? It's weird as all hell.]

    Summary

    The butterfly in his hand shines softly, and that tells him he's in the right place. Putting his hands in the pocket of his hoodie he moves forward, glancing into each room as he passes by. It shouldn't feel this awkward, what with him being invisible, but being up on the surface at all makes Zagreus nervous, and part of him just wants to get it over with.

    Then he passes a window, and the butterfly in his pocket grows warm as he spots a familiar figure standing next to one of the beds.

    Summary

    He can feel it in the burning soles of his feet, in his bones, in the ever-present buzz that—in his few moments of stillness—he can hear underneath the thrum of his fragile, immortal heart.

    It’s strange, but not unfamiliar: a someone else there, an ancient presence that should not exist, something broken, destroyed, and long-forgotten. But there, beneath his skin. Beneath him.

    (or: the origins of love.)

    Summary

    16 times Zagreus has walked in on Achilles and Patroclus sharing an intimate moment in Elysium. The 17th time Achilles decides to teach him a lesson. The sexy kind. The sexy and consensual kind because Zagreus is a thirsty hoe.

    Summary

    Thanatos' heart lies outside his body.

    Styx takes Zagreus’ pieces from Thanatos’ grasp and makes him whole once more. It takes longer than he thinks it ought, for flesh to knit and soul to settle into its place; for the woven multicolored thread of Zagreus’ life to be re-spun, knotted over like scar tissue, and the next first beat of Zagreus’ heart to resound in Thanatos’ breast.

    Summary

    Patroclus felt no small amount of guilt that the prince was on his mind in this way. He was happy--and quite satisfied--with Achilles and his regular visits to Elysium. Achilles was his truest and deepest love, above or below the earth. He would choose Achilles in every life he could imagine.

    But now, in eternal paradise, was he really only bound to one choice?

     
    OR: How to Seduce a Himbo--based on the in-game dialogue that's a full-tilt porno intro: "if there's anything we can do to repay you-"

    (This is a follow-up to my Patrochilles fic Forever Starts Tonight, but it can be read as a stand-alone!)

    Summary

    “No hard feelings about the whole battle-to-the-death thing last time, right, Charon? Especially since you absolutely demolished me. I was just messing with you, you know that, right?” Zagreus asks.

    Charon lifts his head, ever so slowly. He catches a glimpse of the boatman’s glowing purple eye beneath the wide brim of his hat, before his entire face is obscured in a cloud of dense, purple smoke. “Nrraaauuuggghh…!”

    Zagreus flinches. “Missing… one gold obol, you say? How odd, seeing as I happen to be in possession of one additional gold obol…” He takes it out and places it on the boatman’s podium, taking the initiative to slide it toward Charon’s twitching hands when he makes no move to take it from him himself. “There—all better now.”

    It is most definitely not all better. And what kind of shopkeep would Charon be if he didn't punish thieves?

    Summary

    “Uh huh...” Hypnos looks down at the skull, almost expecting it to come back to life somehow. Perhaps he’s just too used to chatting with Skelly every now and again on his breaks. The skull in his hands does in fact, not come to life though, so it seems to be a regular one. “Right, yes, um! What is the meaning of this? Who sent this?” Is what the Sleep Incarnate finally questions.

    Hermes gives him a knowing look, already breaking off into a quick tangent. “Why, who else could it be from, lad? Why none other than the God of War! Might I tell you I was awful surprised to see him using the delivery service today. He hasn’t gifted anyone through mail in like, a century or something! Or at least that’s my guesstimate. I think in-person wooing is more his style, so I was curious of course when he called upon me!” Hermes folded his arms. “Then I found out it's for you and of course I have questions.”

    Summary

    Alarm, again. Groaning, fumbling--alarm off, again. Face turning from pillow enough for the smell of coffee to penetrate. Opening eyes, closing them, pressing face to pillow.

    The coffee will burn.

    Summary

    You work together, off and on, for years and decades and centuries; you meet the dawn and there he is, scowling as the sun makes his way across the sky and you want, every time, to kiss the dip of his eyebrows. You don’t; you laugh, instead, you say something trivial, trite, because it makes him snort a quiet laugh.

    That’s the sound you start your day with for years, decades, centuries—Death’s quiet little laugh, forced out of him, as you take over where he left off.

    Summary

    When Zagreus had first set himself the goal to escape the Underworld in search of his mother, he’d never have been able to predict the thing that kept him going back.

    An observer might apply the human expression as behaving like a man possessed. But Zagreus was no such thing, not least of which because he was not a man, but a god.

    Summary

    "A special concoction of my own design. I figured it would suit someone as adventurous in the bedroom as you are, my daring darling," Aphrodite purrs, the wink implicit in her tone.

    "Oh," comes the eloquent response, the realization dawning on the Prince on exactly what her gift entails.

    Summary

    Someone must put an end to this indecency before they are all swept away in its riptide, and who better than Asterius?  Stolid, dependable, dear Asterius.  Theseus waits expectantly for his friend to put their enemy in his place.
    “...I would take you both to bed.”
    Theseus opens his mouth to object...and closes it again, flushing.

    Summary

    Thanatos nodded, grateful. “What brings you back this time, Zag? I didn’t even hear you come in.”

    His face twisted into a pained grimace, the hand not tucked against Thanatos moving to press over his sternum. “Strongbow arrow, right through the chest.”

    “If you’re having trouble, you should call for me.” Thanatos gingerly curled his arm around Zagreus’ middle, hand lowering until his fingertips rested against the swell of Zagreus’ thigh. “I’ll be there in a flash.”

    Zagreus catches Thanatos on a rare break from work, indulging in a little one-on-one time whilst he can.

    Summary

    “My ultimate point is this, daemon: that in an epic act of sacrifice, I shall permit you to pleasure me with your terrible body. A besmirchment though it may be!”
    In the silence that follows, a muffled roar rises within the arena. The Lethe whispers by. Faint, sweet Elysian music tinkles in the distance.
    “...What,” says the daemon.
