    Summary

    Nacida en los '90, universitaria, bajita y con muchos amigos humanos: Perséfone realmente tiene un pésimo currículo divino. Los mortales no le rinden culto, los Dioses no la invitan a sus eventos, y eso funciona para ella. O al menos eso es lo que cree.
    Todo cambia cuando conoce a Hades, Dios de los muertos, en una ponencia. Él también tiene sus problemas: trescientos mil años de edad, siete pies de alto, al menos veinte títulos en su nombre. Pero también es el único que comprende la pasión de Perséfone por las leyes, así como el único que parece tan incómodo como ella entre las otras deidades. ¿Cómo podrían no entenderse?
    Ellos entrelazarán sus destinos y trabajarán juntos para resolver un juicio controversial, colaborando en una investigación en la corte del Inframundo. Y también, entre la ironía y la seriedad, la justicia y el rigor, la vida y la muerte, esta es una (semi) moderna interpretación de un mito que nunca dejó de contarse.

    Summary

    "If we were in a different time or place, this story may have begun with ‘once upon a time’, or even ‘In a hole in the ground, there lived…’ But as it so happens, we are in this time and place, in the outskirts of London, where there are no ‘once upon a times’ and the only holes in grounds lead to sewage tunnels. There does happen to be, however, a man who has dedicated a great deal of his life studying these ‘once upon a time’s. He is an English teacher, enjoys afternoon teas with homemade raisin scones, and he most certainly does not believe in fairy-tales.

    His name is Bilbo Baggins, and that last bit about him is about to change."

    Bilbo Baggins, an English teacher who has never been outside of England, suddenly finds himself thrust into an adventure when a strange man named Thorin Oakenshield requires his help to fulfill his father’s dying wish. Turns out studying the niche topic of the ancient, fictional society of dwarves was more useful than his parents could have imagined. Plunged into a forgotten land, Thorin and Bilbo must find the mythical Arkenstone, before the legends of the past come back to haunt modern society.

    (Modern AU, slow burn Bagginshield.)

    Summary

    Imagine, if you will, two gods on earth,
    pretending that they’re mortal men to test
    whether, within the realm of death and birth,
    the laws of hospitality for guests
    were honored in the heart or were repressed.

    Summary

    A Supernatural retelling of the fairytale East of the Sun, West of the Moon.

    Castiel is cursed by his angelic brothers for being too close to humanity. They put him in a form that will force him to watch humans but never be able to interact with them. To break the curse, Castiel must live with a righteous human for a year. They must sleep in the same bed together at night with Castiel in his true form. The catch? He can't explain what's happening and the human can’t ever look upon him at night during that year.

    The minute Castiel sees Dean, he knows this is the human that can help him. And with Sam sick with a terminal illness, maybe Castiel can help Dean too.

    Summary

    The plague came out of nowhere. No one knew
    What god or goddess sent it, and the signs,
    When not ambiguous, were all too few:
    The oak leaves still, the livers whole and fine,
    From left and right the birds flew in straight lines,
        And worst of all, the tea leaves all refused
        To form a pattern readers could have used.

    Or, because the mythographers were mistaken about certain fundamental facts of the natural history of ants, such as that workers and soldiers are female, they got several stories completely wrong.

    Summary

    Eurydike knew immediately which one the god-born was. Him and his swagger weren’t hard to miss. He was sitting at the furthest table on the terrace - the one closest to the sea - and he was dressed in a black bomber jacket and sunglasses. The breeze played through his dark curls; his eyes were hidden under sunglasses, but were no doubt some brilliant colour like all the god-born. He had his legs stretched out and his feet propped up on a battered guitar case. Silhouetted against the waves, it made for a handsome picture.

    Eurydike scoffed. It was late spring. It wasn’t cold enough to need a jacket and it wasn’t bright enough to need sunglasses.

    --

    Just a modern retelling of an old story.
