    Summary

    Achilles doesn't reflect in mirrors, hates alliums, requires an invitation to get to Elysium, and is associated with the god of blood.

    What else is one to conclude?

    Or, an AU in which Nereids come back from the grave as vampires, and half-Nereid Achilles is still dead and in the underworld, but finds he's vampiric all the same. He's not worried, though. After all, shades don't have blood, and gods have ichor, so there's nobody down there he needs to fear harming...

    (Blame guhdong on twitter for this.)

    Summary

    He was never known to stay still for long. He always needed to be on the move, to do something. No one blamed him, he had several reasons to run. He wanted to go, he desired to leave, even if it meant leaving his heart behind.

    He had been so still for so long that part of him began to wonder if he truly was becoming a statue, another piece of art in the hall he guarded. He used to run free, he used to do more and be more. He had no fear when he was living, yet fear was what made him stay.

    Summary

    Achilles frowns. “What’s wrong?”

    “Hypnos. His mother just called to say he spent last night studying for his exams and he passed out as soon as he got home from college. So we have to find an officiant quickly. And—” he closes his eyes for a moment and takes a long breath. He opens them again. Ah, he is upset. “I thought Megaera was meant to be the ring bearer. Why have I just found out that now the one giving us our wedding ring is Cerberus?”

    Right. In the rush of it all, Achilles completely forgot to mention Patroclus this little modification in personnel. The suggestion had sounded silly coming out of Zagreus’ mouth, but as Achilles thought it over, it wasn’t such a terrible idea.

    “It was a last-minute change,” says Achilles, which makes Patroclus bring a hand to his face and let out a slow breath. “He’s being trained well, Pat.”

    “He’s blind, Achilles. And deaf.”

    or, on the verge of getting the wedding of their dreams, things get a little too complicated for Achilles and Patroclus.

    Summary

    The most powerful force on Earth must be love. Therefore, to avoid Death, you must:
    1. Make Death fall in love with you.
    2. Make Death fond of you.
    3. And achieve Death's eternal protection.

    How do you do that?
    1. I have no idea.
    2. Maybe I could seduce Death?
    3. I will have to find the GRIM REAPER AND FUCK HIM.

    Prince Zagreus is the heir of the eeriest company in all of Greece, The Underworld—a call center that specializes in contacting people on their death day. He's also in his last year of college, and for his senior year thesis paper, Zagreus wants to find evidence, ways, and theories that will allow him to cheat Death.

    Since it has to be possible... right?

    And if he has to break boundaries, cross seas, and find a way to contact the Ancient Greek gods, then you bet he fucking will.

    Summary

    And it’s then that he thinks will I forget Patroclus, too? The thought seizes him suddenly, wraps itself around his ankles and pulls his feet from under him. If so much is fading, who is to say that he will not fade too? It coils around him, and for the first time in a very, very, very long time, fear sits cold in a knotted ball in his stomach. His memories of Patroclus are some of the few things that sustain him. How would he even fare without them?

    Alone in the House of Hades, Achilles fears his memories are beginning to slip. And so he decides to write them down. (Or, how the Codex came to be written.)

    For the Hades Big Bang!

    Summary

    The rings were gold, the carved flowers inlaid with gems. One for his nose and the other a finger. They were beautiful, bright and shining in the light. Is this what it means to be wed? To be out in the light, golden and shining, filled to the brim with affection?

    Is this what Thesus' adoration of him meant?

    Summary

    The thought of Zagreus dying, over and over and over again, makes him feel physically ill. Which is remarkable, really, since there is hardly anything left of him to actually be sick. But his inner-omega is distressed… and the rush of emotions is making his skin-equivalent crawl. He may not be able to put out distress pheromones anymore, but all the other unpleasantness that came with it—the anxiety, the stomach cramps, the nausea—that’s all still there.

    And it only gets worse as Zagreus blathers on and on about risking it all to go be with his birth mother—a woman he’d been convinced, up until a fortnight ago, was actually Nyx.

    Why does the fact that Zagreus is going to Persephone make such a difference?

    He certainly didn’t feel this sort of distress at seeing Zagreus and Nyx together.

    Summary

    Zagreus was missing.

    No-one had seen him since he left on his latest escape attempt from the House of Hades. Megaera confirmed that Alecto had fought and lost against him. Eurydice had also confirmed that he had passed through Asphodel, but Theseus bragged that there had been no sign of him. This worried Thanatos more than it should have done. Zagreus was the least stealthy individual he knew, and he always left a trail of destruction wherever he went. He kept tabs on the House to check that he hadn’t emerged from the River Styx and was on his way to do another run, with everyone saying the same thing: there was no sign of him.

    ----

    Zagreus vanishes, and everyone tries to find him.

    Achilles did not expect much when Hades came to ask him to train his child. He certainly did not expect to find a son.

    Summary

    "Do you think he's still mad at me for trying to leave?" Zagreus asks. 

    He and Thanatos had argued about it plenty of times recently. Zagreus had hoped they'd moved past it. Thanatos had even been helping him, in that careful and secret way of his. Yet despite that, Zagreus can't help feeling that there's some obstacle that he hasn't been able to overcome ― some barrier that stands between them.

    "What makes you say that?" Achilles asks.

    Zagreus shrugs halfheartedly. "Maybe it's nothing. It's just..." 

    His brain fixates on Thanatos's hands, the way that they've flitted near and around him ― as tentative and nervous as a butterfly ― yet they've never landed.

    "He hasn't touched me," Zagreus says. "Not once. Not since I started trying to escape this place."

    Summary

    There's a lot to learn about the tourist trap that is Styx Beach; that it's a dry town, that it's made up of strange and interesting people, that its beholden to the only hotel generating any kind of tourism and it's stubborn owner, but there's one thing Hermes only starts to figure out five months into his time there:

    He might be falling for that boat guy.
