    Summary

    It is the first time that creation stumps them, the first time their fists clench.

    Love watches from afar and cackles with two sharp-toothed mouths, tilts his many heads in imitation of the charming sparrow and wicked vulture that sit on his shoulders. Because, Oh, silly them, they who attempt to shape these miniscule souls, these humans who aren’t meant to be all-knowing, all-holding, all-being.

    Summary

    There was no doubt that the Olympians saw mortals as their pawns and playthings, only to wreak havoc and then discard their short lives for Thanatos to collect, Ares was just honest about it. Sometimes, the souls that he sent him felt like love letters, with the way the God of War admired Death. Their methods were different but contributed to the same cause. When death was there, Than was there, so when Ares had his fun, it followed he would run into his old friend Thanatos.

    Summary

    "War's an ugly thing," you tell her once; the stars are thick in the sky, smell of summer heat fading yet, the torchlight and victory feast ongoing.

    "How odd," she says. Her finger traces the back of your hand, light as the secret in her smile, hotter than any brand. "You never make it seem that way."

    “I assure you, it is only the company,” you say. “You have a gift.”
