    Summary

    She went first to the hives of Silence and requested from them their beeswax. Then she found where the clay men had hidden their newfound fire, and took from their hearth the smallest burning scrap, which she used to light a wick. As the wax melted down it, its layers dripped and hardened upon themselves, and when it lengthened into a shape she could carry in her arms, she the Night bent her head and kissed life into it. This became the infant she called Charon, half-melted and smoking Promethean fire with every breath.

    At the end of this recounting, she tilted her head and asked politely, Is this not how you have children?

    Uh, no, said Persephone.

    Summary

    Akira Kurusu’s year on probation at Shujin Academy was… eventful, to say the least. A student got arrested for assaulting the volleyball coach. That same volleyball coach got arrested for rape. A third-year’s father died on live television.

    Then, Akira had to watch the stumbling drunk who had falsely accused him of assault get elected Prime Minister. The cherry on top? When all was said and done, a “clerical error” in the court back home left him with a completed sentence, as opposed to an expunged record.

    The world is not as it should be. It’s filled with distortion, and ruin can no longer be avoided.

    For those who oppose fate and desire change? Ten years have passed… and now, it may be too late.

    idk what to say, this story has really thought out world building that affects the characters in meaningful ways, the characters are spot on to what they should be within this AU, and it's Vellaen writing all of it so the writing style is worth more than a NASA project. this is a really good story, hope it gets finished.

    Holy shit. This is one of the best one shots I've ever read in my life. The focus, the prose, the theme- God this is such a good fic.
