Defeated, Zagreus leans his forehead against the wall. Or, rather, he slams his forehead into the wall. He’d been so close to escaping silently into his room after dying for the thirteenth time that week (had his father sent out another reward poster?), but then of course his father had to acknowledge his existence. He only seems to do it when Zagreus very much wishes he could disappear into the floor.
“Father.” Zagreus does his absolute best to not scowl. “How can I help you?”

“Thanatos?” Zagreus’ brow furrows in confusion, and the worry on his face makes the butterflies in Thanatos’ stomach launch a violently militarised assault on his insides. Thanatos suddenly finds himself feeling quite strongly, and entirely against his will, that nothing should ever be permitted to make Zagreus unhappy; he wants to reach out and smooth the lines marring the otherwise flawless expanse of his forehead, wants to lay a soft kiss on the delicate curve of his perfect brow ridge, wants to cradle him gently in loving arms until his expression reverts to its contentedly gormless default.
“I wish I was mortal so that I could kill myself,” Thanatos says, fervently and with great feeling.
In the middle of one of Zagreus' escape attempts, Aphrodite's Charm works its magic on a singularly unlikely target.
"I'm not insecure, Zagreus," Than tells him. And it's true, mostly.
"That's good." Zag's blunt nails graze Than's scalp. He feels the touch all the way to the base of his spine. "I just want to reaffirm that you've no reason to be."
Thanatos rolls his eyes. "That, and you like seeing me squirm."
Zag grins, wolflike. "What can I say?" His fingers leave Than's hair to fan out over his cheek. "Gold's your color."
or: Gods, too, can worship.
Per the Fates’ decree, The Prince of the Underworld will have free reign only over the domain of his divine birth and divine blood. Zagreus is clever, despite his warm-hearted optimism so often read as foolishness—clever enough to recognize that divine blood, in fact, also includes the part of his pedigree from Olympus.
All cleverness aside, making it to the mountain of his kin seems to ignite Zagreus’s Olympian blood in ways not entirely expected. Unexpected, but not in the least unwanted.
