    Summary

    Achilles stood up. He had been expecting the stranger since Megaera had stalked past him, elegant despite the anger and blood dripping from her.

    An AU where Zagreus was raised by Demeter and ends up fighting his way through the Underworld regardless - just in the opposite direction. Guarding the entrance out is the terrifying monster Cerberus, but guarding the entrance in is Achilles, best of Greeks. And he has strict orders not to let anyone in.

    Summary

    Zagreus couldn't remember his mother. Or where he lived as a child. or his childhood at all, really. All he really has is vague memories of a boy his age, sand between his toes, and the name of his mother. But there's so much more his father refuses to share, refusing to explain why they left or why Hades kept such a strong, painful leash on him for his whole life.

    He leaves, with the phone numbers of estranged family he found in a rotting phone book and an unmarked key he stole, he runs.

    Returning to the ocean he hopes of figuring out who his mother is, and why he is so drawn to the ocean despite how much it terrifies him.

    or; Zagreus lost his memories in that coastal town, only to return one day looking for answers. He ends up finding people who know more about him than he does.

But as he and his new coworkers are about to find out, the Alliance's purpose isn't quite as magnanimous as they claim...
