    Summary

    The prophecy had been set since the beginning of time. The sons of God Apollo and Underworld King Hades were fated to battle to the death, the victor to be blessed with ultimate power.
    Beomgyu’s father had never informed him of the prophecy, seeing as Beomgyu has never even met him. Taehyun’s father never stopped reminding him of his awaited fate, and sometimes he wishes he had never met Hades.
    But when Beomgyu starts attending Pandora Academy, he finds that his naivety surrounding their world is common knowledge among his peers.
    Taehyun struggles with whether or not he should reveal the truth about their inevitable battle, which is growing closer with each passing day.

    It doesn’t help that he finds himself starting to fall in love with the boy he’s supposed to murder.

    The story of Pandora’s Box in Greek Mythology claims that things which contain fear should be left alone, but if Beomgyu and Taehyun try to avoid their fate; how will they discover the hope that both will come out alive?

    Summary

    Summary

    Summer was always dry heat and scorching sun in Phthia. It was long days on the farm and listless evenings by the creek or beneath the shade of the coolabah tree. It was foreign touches and shaky hands and held breath.

    --

    Following the events of 'Feral and Stray', Achilles Pelides grapples with his past and present with Patroclus as they ready themselves for the new semester.

    Summary

    I yawned, bored with this as I kept lazily playing, “What’s your name?”

    I thought I had been loud enough but the room remained silent except for my lazy playing.

    I repeated, “What’s your name?”

    This time he answered, “Patroclus”.

    I stopped my playing and turned to my side to get a look of him. He had an accent that was thick and rich. His name rolled off his tongue and I found myself repeating it.

    Patroclus. Patroclus. Patroclus.

    He was once a Prince, but had been exiled for murder. He didn’t look like a murderer. I had expected him to be bigger and to be more muscular like the other boys. I remembered the servants telling me about him. Instead, he was smaller and tanned from his journey here. He didn’t look me in the eyes, but I wished he did. I smiled at him, hoping that it would draw a smile out of him.

    “My name is Achilles.” It was an attempt to get him to talk again. I wanted to hear his accent again.

    ----

    A retellings of "Song of Achilles" from Achilles perspective.

    Summary

    They were born from Chaos.

    *****************

    Have you ever tried to untangle the Greek mythology family tree? How well did you do? Have you succeeded?

    As far as my own attempts go? I think not.

    But still gotta try, because perseverance is key and I’ve given up on Goddess-Core which sucks because I really like it. Have this instead, in technically the same universe!

    *****************

    A collection of short character studies, idk if they’re short enough to be drabbles. A few paragraphs for each deity!

    Summary

    Sleep, king of Gods, and men of mortal birth, sov'reign of all sustain'd by mother Earth;
    For thy dominion is supreme alone, o'er all extended, and by all things known.
    'Tis thine all bodies with benignant mind in other bands than those of brass to bind:
    Tamer of cares, to weary toil repose, from whom sweet solace in affliction flows.
    Thy pleasing, gentle chains preserve the soul, and e'en the dreadful cares of death controul;
    For Death and Lethe with oblivious stream, mankind thy genuine brothers justly deem.
    With fav'ring aspect to my pray'r incline, and save thy mystics in their works divine.
    -Orphic Hymn LXXXIV (Orpheus)

    Once a king, now a lonely shepherd of dreams.
