    Summary

    When Zagreus goes missing, Thanatos searches the mortal world for him until he finds him imprisoned on the surface by Demeter in a tortuous state between life and death. Hades and Nyx want to negotiate with Demeter to prevent the feud from escalating, but Thanatos fears that Zagreus may not have time to wait. He might be a god but there is enough mortal blood in him that death could be permanent if he is pushed too far past his limits.

    Forbidden from interfering, Thanatos is forced yet again to make difficult choices between his loyalties.

     
    Written for the Hades Big Bang 2021.

    Summary

    Years after leaving his father's house and reuniting his parents, Zagreus is comfortably settled in a new place, with a new job, and his past put comfortably behind him. Old relationships have been replaced with new friendships, and life is, for the most part, straightforward.

    And then, because the Fates are bastards, Thanatos reappears, and everything changes.

    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

    I’m not afraid of the world itself. I’m afraid of waking up knowing that you’re not in it. I tried to keep my distance—but the world doesn’t work without you in it.

    or

    Zagreus believes it’s finally time for him to break free of his father’s grasp. Thanatos promised to help him, but he can’t think of what it would be like to let him go.

    Summary

    “Does it ever get easier?” Thanatos finally asked one day.

    “No,” Achilles said, the gentle hush of his words like the breath of the breeze through meadow reeds, “But it does get easier to hide.”

    Summary

    "Thanatos hears a lot of last words. It’s a side effect of his occupation—his domain, his obligation. Unfinished sentences, partial phrases, and cut-off words echo in the back of his mind constantly. They usually come right before he has to make his appearance on the mortal surface, serving as a useful reminder of his appointments. But really, he always knows where he needs to be, so the stream of doomed consciousness usually falls to a background drone.

    Which is why an all-too-familiar voice stands out from the rest of the chorus and strikes through Thanatos like a spear."

    Thanatos listens to Zagreus die over and over again.

    Summary

    But what Zagreus really liked about Mondays, what he looked forwards to more than anything, was the first chance to see him.

    It when after the mad rush, where it was just him and Dusa tending to the café and cleaning out the coffee filters, that he appeared at exactly quarter to nine. Immaculate charcoal grey suit, black shirt, gold tie, neatly trimmed silvery-white hair with an undercut at the back, tanned skin, and the most mesmerising golden eyes that Zagreus got lost in repeatedly.

    ----

    Zagreus, who works in a cafe run by friends of his parents, has a crush on office worker Thanatos.

    Summary

    Zagreus' life in the most boring Midwestern town imaginable is decidedly ordinary. It becomes less so when he learns that nineteen years ago, his mother, who happens to be a goddess, escaped the Underword and moved so far away from home that none of his relatives there or on Olympus would ever find them.

    And he's a god. Apparently.

    Now that Hades has found out Zagreus is alive and on the surface, he wants his son to return to the Underworld—and he'll take him back by force if need be. The only safe way to keep Zagreus above the surface is to get him to the Olympians, but he can't make it there alone. Nyx assigns one of her sons to escort him: Thanatos, Death Incarnate, who doesn't know how to drive, hates Zag's taste in road trip snacks, and has never been kissed.

    Zag's not sure why that last one feels so important.

    Summary

    Achilles is almost amused, “You must be truly desperate, to come to me for relationship advice.”

    --

    Achilles is roped into offering an utterly hopeless Zagreus relationship advice, and learns a thing or two about his relationship with Patroclus along the way.

    Remember: fear is for the weak.

    Summary

    "He tirelessly serves his foreign Master, whose son at least he adores, despite their opposing manner and outlook. Thanatos would never speak of this, but it is clear, to me. Whence came the bond they share? My thought is that the Master's son must be the god of blood; of life. Thus, they are inexorably drawn."

    The odyssey of Zagreus, God of Life, and how each step in his journey inexorably brought him back to Thanatos, God of Death.

    Summary

    Zagreus had reunited Patroclus with Achilles, and everything was going well between the two of them.

    That is, until one day, Patroclus wakes with no memory of himself or who he once was.

    Patroclus may not know who the golden haired man was that came to visit him, but there is something about him that draws him in—And he wants to know more.

    His memories are not the only mystery to be solved, as Achilles, Zagreus, and Thanatos set out to find what made the fallen myrmidon drink.
