    Summary

    To me, canon Olwe and his people are callous and selfish, and their behavior is beyond disgusting. But what if they had good reasons? Maybe they knew the Valar’s true nature more accurately than even Feanor did. Can we guess what would have happened to the people of Alqualonde if they had agreed to ferry the Noldor to Middle-earth? There is a precedent, in one of the oldest preserved masterpieces of literature.

    Summary

    Patroclus is not the Chosen One; he is not even sure he belongs in this world half the time. He knows the Chosen One and he's a boy just like himself—except he’s golden and perfect, he’s the star Quidditch player and he's the most powerful and gifted wizard in history. He’s destined to save all of magic someday. Patroclus kind of wants to hate him but Achilles makes it impossible.

    The Harry Potter and Song of Achilles mashup you never knew you wanted (hopefully).

    Summary

    "The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep." ~Robert Frost

    -

    Rhea thought the fight was over when she handed Luke that blade. The war she fought for others was over. She was wrong.
    Now a thousand miles and a thousand years from home, all alone with just the ghost of a curse to accompany her in her travels, she will only fight for the wars she chooses.

    -

    "I promise."

    It tastes like a lie, but I know I’ll do my best to fulfill it. How am I to make the gods listen when they don’t even know who I am?

    Summary

    Odysseus has all the secrets. His fault? It's all in a notebook and that notebook gets stolen. Paris threatens Helen and drama that resembles the events of The Iliad and Greek Mythology occur. Patroclus/Achilles also happens.
    OR
    Characters from Greek Myth are dropped into a high school setting. I focus mostly on Odysseus but Patroclus/Achilles does happen.

    Summary

    The Overtakers went out in search of a new magical power, only to realize that one of their most annoying foes has laid a trap for them. Deprived of their powers and any way to get back home without sailing the dangerous seas, they set out on a path that just so happens to retrace a rather famous story here in the world that houses Olympus...

    ***

    A gift fic for GAVillain. A non-canon spinoff of his "Quite a Glittering Assemblage" crossover fic series. More explanation in A/N's of first chapter. This will REALLY make no sense if you aren't into QAGA.

    Summary

    Brazier fire dances over his russet curls, as he animatedly spins another yarn about the rich wonders of his murky and probably quite cold home island at the northern edge of civilization. Clytemnestra stifles a yawn. "Tell me you're not serious about him," she mouths at her sister across the table.

    Summary

    When her beloved husband, Odysseus, had left to fight in the Trojan War 20 years ago, Penelope was heartbroken. The dreadful war had raged for 10 long years, but once Penelope heard it had ended, she was elated for Odysseus to return home. Three months passed and there was no sight of her husband, so she was pushed to think that maybe Odysseus would not be returning home. With no sight of Odysseus, male suitors from wealthy, powerful families began to fill the palace, all competing for her hand. Now 20 years later, Penelope still refused to give up hope that her husband would come back to her. Odysseus was the most cunning man she had ever met and Penelope knew that if anyone could find their way home, it would be him. Still, not everyone shared her beliefs and many thought Odysseus died on the journey home.
    ......

    book nine from 'The Odyssey' written from Penelope's P.O.V because I thought she probably was going through a lot during this.

    Summary

    “It must have been quite thrilling with Calypso in that cave, was it not? Did she stun you?” Perimedes asked with a smirk.
    Odysseus's face turned a bright shade of red. “Did she stun me! Do you think that being held captive in a cave for seven years was pleasant?"
    “I know I would have enjoyed myself. C'mon live a little. Have some fun for once, miserable old hag.”
    Then, it all went down hill.

    Summary

    "The kind god tries to warm you back to life, and next endeavors to attend your wound, and stay your parting soul with healing herbs. His skill is no advantage, for the wound is past all art of cure. As if someone, when in a garden, breaks off violets, poppies, or lilies hung from golden stems, then drooping they must hang their withered heads, and gaze down towards the earth beneath them; so, the dying boy's face droops, and his bent neck, a burden to itself, falls back upon his shoulder" - Ovid, Metamorphoses

    Hyacinthus is the new student who is quickly enveloped into schemes of love and war between the teens who resemble the old Greek Gods a little too much.
    Psyche is the prettiest girl at school, or at least she would be if it weren't for her enemy Aphrodite who longed for nothing more except to be known as prettier than Psyche.
    This is a story of romance and deception following the lives of two famous Greek heroes who are now in the modern world, with no memories of their past or of the dangers that face them if they continue to contend with the fates.

    Summary

    Nausicaa, the Phaeacian princess, features in one book and a handful of lines in Homer’s Odyssey. She deserves so much more, as her compound name, ‘Burner of Ships’, suggests. So queer ancient Greek myth pirate adventure it is.
