    Summary

    Five perspectives on Thanatos and Zagreus as they fall, and in the aftermath.

    “He's not leaving,” Thanatos bites back. “There's nowhere to go.”

    Ah, the words of a god. To Achilles’ once-mortal eyes, there are cracks and open windows and doors with just the right key and escape routes aplenty from the House. “So you'd think. I guess wherever he goes, you'll be seeing him either way.”

    Thanatos turns to him and it's as if this had never occurred to him. “What do you mean?”

    “Didn't you tell him? It's a hard world out there. I’m sure he'll find out, and I don't know anything that can bleed that doesn't wash up here eventually.”

    Summary

    This time there is something intoxicating about it, the dusty scent of obols, shackles and candle-wax mixing with the soot of burning coals and purifying incense. It stings like spices when inhaled, glides hot and sharp down his throat and Thanatos feels it in his stomach, a reminder of cravings unfulfilled.

    Summary

    Thanatos sees it now. His time with Zagreus gave rise to more than just reverent adoration, far more than what awkward confessions and quiet, gentle lovemaking could slake. There is so much more that lives inside of him, feelings that don't have words and those that do (but should not be said out loud). Ugly, raw feelings that burn him up from the inside out, as impossible to control as they are to deny.

    And Thanatos can no longer do either.
