    Summary

    Young godling Zagreus grows up with his mother in their humble cottage, spending his days rummaging through the garden and basking in the sun. But at night, he meets another in secret: the boy with golden eyes who can shape the dreamworld however he likes.

    Hypnos finds him in his dreams, and though they've never meet in the waking world, they quickly become close friends. As the pair grow up together, though, they find themselves longing more and more to finally meet in the flesh, despite the risks. (But then, when has young love ever minded a few risks?)

    Summary

    A new addition to the Underworld's royal family sends Zagreus spiraling down a dark place, pondering the childhood he never had. Luckily, Patroclus is there to hold him steady.

    ~

    Zagreus might be clueless sometimes, but not so much that he hasn't seen how the House spent the last few weeks talking about what an excellent brother he'll make, what with his bleeding heart. Similarly, it's hard to miss how for the last two days, everyone glances at him and whispers their rumors, their scandalous guesses at what might have finally made the prince crack.

But what happens when people talk to him about their worries and lives? What happens when even his friends visit his workplace to vent to him?

    Summary

    Ever since they spent That Night together, Hypnos had one mission: to keep Zagreus from leaving the House. Whatever it took. And right now, Hypnos was brimming with - he didn't want to say fantasies; creative visions, perhaps? And if a lot of those visions involved kissing Zag, and not wearing many clothes at all, and expanding their repertoire of, uh, best friend activities - well, that sounded like it would be a great start.

    ---

    Hypnos has one goal: to keep his best friend, the prince, at home where he belongs - through any means necessary. And, you know, we're not saying that his mind immediately jumps to sexy means, but... we're also very much not not saying that.

    Summary

    “Why are you trying to help?” He asked, “We don’t even know each other’s names.”

    The stranger sat down on the grass beside him and held out a hand. Zagreus took it and they shook.

    “My name is Thanatos.”

    “I’m Zagreus, ...It’s nice to meet you?”

    “Hm.”

    ***

    After a fight with his father sends Zagreus on a quest to find his mother, he meets and falls in love with a beautiful stranger. Unfortunately for Zagreus, Thanatos is much more complicated than he appears.

    A thanzag AU where Zagreus (and most of the cast) is human but Thanatos isn't.

    "You can get to the surface?" Zagreus asked.

    "Of course I can?" Hypnos frowned. "I'll tell ya, the only thing mortals do more often than die, is sleep."

    Summary

    When Hades asks Achilles to raise his infant son, Achilles refuses without thinking, as the idea of raising a child without Patroclus is too painful to contemplate. As it turns out, his mindless refusal of the God of the Underworld changed his fate for the better.

    Summary

    The Prince of the Underworld has never quite felt at home in his birthplace. There are very few comforts within the walls of the House of Hades, and it's been eating at Zagreus' core for as long as he can remember. The expectations and ridicule of his father have driven him half mad, and it has gotten to the point where he can't take it anymore. He would leave this wretched place, or die trying.

    And die he did.

    And he soon learned that no matter how he tried, he always found himself right back where he started. A vicious, bloody cycle of never-ending torment.

    Summary

    When it became clear he couldn't escape the human's arms yet again, his passion bled away, leaving him limp and pathetic there, pressed into the sand. The human released him; he cannot say how long after, as this is when his memory begins to crumble into fragments.

    He thinks...he thinks the human wasn't pleased. It spoke to itself, walked around him and he didn't listen to its words.

    Then the human...grabbed him? Pulled him. And he hadn't fought. He hadn't listened, either--he should have listened; it could have been explaining things. He could have listened, and learned what it said to bargain for his passage onto the ferryman's boat.

    The Bull of Minos is brought to Elysium by his murderer and begins the long trial of acclimating to an afterlife as one of the exalted; a great oddity among great men.

    Summary

    It’s with a buzz of self-satisfaction that Zagreus walks through the last section of Elysium and towards the twisted hedges surrounding the outer edges of the Rings. It’s been a bit since Zagreus was last here. He has to keep up the pretense that he’s still trying to get out into the city for the sake of his relatives, and though he knows it’s for the best, he doesn’t love the commentary on his “failures”.

    Still, he doesn’t really know how they’re going to fix that particular issue. It’s felt like a far off problem - until today.

    Or: What is the Hades storyline without inevitable family drama and Zagreus trying to get people to just deal with problems?

    Summary

    When he folds to his knees the first time, cheek against the soft grasses of Athens, heart bleeding out of his chest, he also feels the press of something into his hand. Then, his mother’s words trickle slow, honey-like into his ears, as she says:

    “There’s too much fruit in this garden for me to eat alone. Share it with someone else you love, until you can share it with me.”

    Summary

    Zagreus has been successful: Persephone has returned and their family is whole once again — Olympus included. The completed royal family of the Underworld lives peacefully, with no other looming threads to face. But, they have not dealt with one:

    Hades would not have an Heir. The Fates do not falter, nor do they ever declare a prophecy in jest. Hades would not have an heir…

    ...Perhaps this is what they meant.

    (There is something different about Zagreus).
