    Summary

    Telling of the myth of Hades and Persephone based on the interpretation that Hades did NOT kidnap her, with a few twists of my own sprinkled in there.

    Hades is a pragmatic God who takes his duties too seriously. Persephone is a relatively new Goddess trying to find her place in the world. When Persephone unexpectedly falls, the two learn from one another what is the real meaning of life and death.

    Summary

    Born in the 90s, university student, short and with lots of human friends: Persephone really has a terrible divine curriculum. Mortals don't worship her, Gods don't invite her to their mundane events, and all in all it would be fine for her. Or at least this is what she thinks.

    Everything changes when at a conference she meets Hades, God of the dead. His too is a heavy baggage: three hundred thousand years of age, seven feet tall, at least twenty titles on his name. But he's also the only one understaning Persephone's passion for law subjects, as well as the only one who seems uncomfortable among the other deities as much as her. How couldn't they get along?

    They find themselves intertwining their destinies and working together to issue a controversial judgement, collaborating in a trial of souls in the court of the Underworld. And so, halfway between irony and seriousness, fairness and rigor, life and death, this is the (semi) modern reinterpretation of a myth that has never stopped being told.

    Summary

    “You’ve chosen, then?” He asks.

    “I have...conditions. Demands, really.” She puts both hands on his shoulders with confidence she does not feel. He leans forward, pulls her head down to meet him, kisses her—once—on the mouth.

    “I will hear them,” he says, with all the deadly seriousness of his station.

    Summary

    As soon as Aubrey Thyme, psychotherapist, had opened her office door and seen her new client, Anthony J. Crowley, sitting in her waiting area, she was observing and assessing him. At first glance, she paid attention to the following:

    --His clothing was expensive and stylish;
    --He wore very strange but noticeable cologne;
    --His relationship to the seat he occupied could only, very loosely, be described as “sitting;”
    --He looked angry;
    --He was wearing sunglasses.

    What Aubrey Thyme, a professional, thought, upon first seeing her new client was: you’re going to be a fun one, aren’t you?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Probably one of the most upsetting fanfics i have ever read in my entire life. But in a good way.
