    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

    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

    For the last twenty-five years, no one on the island of Ithaca has died. How Thanatos did not notice was beyond him but after a harsh reprimanding from Lord Hades, the God of Death is tasked to investigate. Thanatos discovers that the cause of his issue may be centered around the adopted son of the island's governor: a strange young man by the name of Zagreus.

    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.

    Summary

    “Some believe that black butterflies are symbols of renewal—rebirth.” She smiles wistfully as one of the fragile little creatures perches on her finger, “Others believe that they are harbingers of death and other misfortune.”

    “A harbinger of death…” He traces a finger over the left wing of the pinned butterfly that Thanatos had gifted him. Persephone’s smile widens, a knowing gleam in her gentle green eyes as she beholds her son.

    “You know…” his mother taps him on the shoulder, an inch or so away from his keepsake. “Purple butterflies have a very special meaning as well. They’re a reminder to be patient and keep the faith, to have courage and trust in yourself.” She says.

    Zagreus blushes violently, “I… really don’t know if Thanatos put that much thought into it…” Oh, what is he saying? Of course Thanatos had put that much thought into his keepsake. Thanatos thinks deeply about everything.

    Persephone shrugs, unconvinced. “A mother knows these things, darling.”

    Summary

    Zagreus doesn't know as much about Thanatos as he thought he did. He didn't even know that he had a twin.

    What he does know, though, is that he's tired of being lonely.

    Summary

    “And I’m grateful for your understanding and support, truly,” Zagreus presses on regardless, stepping closer to the still hovering Thanatos, his flaming feet doing little to scorch the lush grass below them, “I just thought that, should I make it out of here, at the very least I should say--”

    “No.” 

    “No?”

    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

    Megaera knows well her place in the Underworld. She understands the shape of her responsibilities, the walls of her limits, how she fits within them. But things always shift when someone else gets involved—even Thanatos, who is as dutiful as she.

    So add Zagreus to the mix, and things really get complicated.

    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.
