i have so many hades and persephone feels

BTS Fic Recommendations

 There seems to be a weird divide in this fandom between reader x member and member x member stories, but I’m just here in the middle like “all Bangtan smut is good smut!” A good story is a good story and good writing is good writing. Some of these have no smut at all and some are so filthy that I can’t believe I’m recommending them, but, you know, BTS ruined my life and I have no shame anymore. 

I’ve probably read hundreds of BTS stories by now and these are the ones that I go back to over and over. I tried to pick only one per author, but all of these authors are amazing and you should go check out their whole masterlists. These are the authors that I personally fangirl over and stand in awe of. None of these are particularly similar to mine (eg. they are way better) and none of them are particular similar to each other. These are the fics that, for whatever reason, I couldn’t forget about after I read them.

Warning: Some of these are very explicit, so use caution. Anything marked with an M is definitely NSFW. 

Hope you enjoy!

You won't regret it

So…

I read.

And I read a fuck ton, when I have time, of course.

And there’s so much out there to read and cry over with a scoop of ice cream or a bottle of scotch; I prefer the latter, but heyyyoooo drink responsibly and legally, kids. There’s so, so, many great stories there ready for you, waiting for you to find them and be engrossed in it. Those words. Those characters. The scenery. The prose and pace. My god, the plot. *hyperventilates*

And if you’re deprived of a good reading like I was, dozens of moons and late-night burgers back, look no further than Receiver of Many by Rachel Alexander. This, my friends, is special. Very special.

This book first started as a fanfiction (it’s nothing anything like 50 Shades of Lameo or those good fanfics that were last updated in 2007, if you’re scared), and it’s a retelling of the Greek myth of the rapture of Persephone, and sweet Jesus, you need to read this. Not even kidding, I highly recommend this. Why? Because of its twists of the ancient myth, the fleshing out of the Olympian gods’ character development, the budding romance of Hades and Persephone (the sex is extremely hot and sexy btw; 10/10, yo), the amount of effort in the author put into making this for herself and for us to enjoy too (she knows her history, and did her research thoroughly, this lady knows what’s up, yo).

If you’re tired of the same “boy meets girl and instant facebook relationship #love5ever” type of story around your dashboard, then book is for you. It’s cheap, you support an independent author, you get a good time reading it (knowing the myth or not), it’s available on paperback and digital, it has strong female characters that are not one dimensional!!!, a hella good and detailed plot, sexy times in great detail (it’s romance/erotica; be responsible if you’re 18 and under, yo), all the plot twists that come back each time, badass Hades defending his flower, Persephone being her fabulous self and maturing as the story goes on, more development of Demeter and her maternal role, and the ending!!!

So, yeah.

If you need a good reading that keeps you up at night biting your nails chapter after chapter and having all the feels imaginable (and you will have all the feels, trust me), then this is for you. I’m telling you, you won’t regret it at all. I wouldn’t recommend something I didn’t like to read and reread (someone talk to me about this, because damn, that ending tho).

So, what’re you waiting for, dottie? Join this love club.

Working on A Hades x Persephone fanfic. Thoughts?

So I’m in the process of working on a Hades x Persephone fanfic and I want some opinions on how the beginning sounds. It goes something like this: I am what remains unseen, unheard and untouched. You cannot feel me yet you experience me without your knowing.  I move the very fabric of the universe just by existing. I am an obstacle for many. I am eternal. I have existed before the creation and will exist long after it’s destruction. Who am I you ask? I go by many names: Chronos, Tempus, καιρός (Kairos). But I am known to you mortals best as Time. For I am a Teller of stories yet I am also the Weaver of many tales. And it is with my greatest pleasure to share with you some of the most ancient stories known in existence.

Now these stories are just that, tales woven by generations of mortals to explain the happenings of the earth. The ones I’m about to tell you date back to ancient Greece to the beginning of the universe, or so to what they believe was the beginning.

In the beginning there was a black void. Within this void was the goddess Nyx (goddess of the night/darkness) who had wings as black as the void itself. With her power she laid a golden egg within the winds. It is from this egg that hatched the god Eros (god of love) who cast the upper half of the egg shell to what became the heavens and the lower half of the egg shell to what became the earth. The heavens became Uranus (god of the sky/father of the gods) and the earth became Gaia (goddess of the earth/mother of the gods). It was then by Eros that he made the two fall in love and thus began the era of the Titans. From Gaia and Uranus came several children including the two most prominently known God’s Kronus and Rhea. Together they had six children all but the last one were swallowed whole by their father who was afraid of the prophecy which foretold of his demise should his children rise against him. The last child known as Zeus who was to be swallowed was cleverly hidden away by his mother Rhea. And when it came time for him to be swallowed she disguised a rock in a bundle to give to her power hungry husband. Zeus grew up far away from his parents where he was raised to fight against his father. When Zeus finally came of age he challenged his father who was taken aback by the fact that his wife had tricked him. Zeus sliced open his father’s stomach to release his brothers and sisters who were all fully grown by this point. And together they fought in the War of the Titans.

it was not long after the war that the three brothers came together to decide who would have control over which domain. Zeus decided they should pull straws. He knew he would pull the longest straw and so the heavens became his domain. Next Poseidon drew the second longest gaining domain over the oceans. And Hades eldest of the three brothers gained domain over the Underworld.

I have yet to finish this up because I’m not sure if I should make a whole chapter dedicated to Hades rebirthing the underworld or if I should just keep it in summary form up until the point that the real story starts. I need some opinions so if y'all could reblog or comment on this please do. It would be much appreciated. Don’t just favorite it and skip on down your dashboard. That doesn’t help me even if it is flattering. Love y'all :^) !

Greek Wolfology

Saw yet another Greek Wolfology mashup and I’m a HUGE mythology geek, so I (yet again) put way too much thought into whether or not I agree. For the most part I disagree with the usual role matchups, Peter/Hades, Stiles/Apollo Sheriff/Zeus Chris/Ares etc.

Here are my feelings on the subject -

Zeus > Chris Argent The only thing Zeus is remembered for is his womanizing, so at first glance he doesn’t fit Chris. However, he was also the ‘Lord of Justice’ and acted as a peacemaker, upholding the law and defining the rules of morality for everyone. He saw the evils in his father’s rule and took down the entire Titanomacy, rebuilding and recreating the kingdom of immortals from the ground up, focusing on keeping the balance of the entire Olympian Pantheon. He was strong and imposing and everything hinged on his verdicts. He was primarily a protector but would unhesitatingly smite the fuck out of anyone who deserved it. Judge, jury and executioner.

Hera > Victoria Even Zeus feared her temper and bent to her will without being able to stand up to her. Known for cold, implacable fury. She was a majestic, solemn goddess who was ruler over marriage, but had very little to do with love. Her worship far outdated any male deity and she is considered one of the original female powers. Her depiction as a jealous shrew was an attempt to lessen her and submit the previously powerful female figure to the dominance of men. The Greeks were some of the first to worship the male as more powerful than the female, much like Victoria lost her power to Gerard and was eventually killed by Chris.

Hades > Sheriff Stilinski This is probably a surprise, but Hades was a really laid back guy most of the time. He stayed in the underworld and kept out of things until someone pissed him off. Most of the terrible things he’s remembered to have done were actually Persephone. (I have so many Hadinski feels that he has to live without his wife) He was loyal to his wife, even in her absence. He was actually one of the fairest and most just of the gods, known to be somber and dignified and work oriented. Also, he had nothing to do with death/dying (that was Thanos) he just ruled the dead. There are several myths where, when a god or hero actually made the effort to travel to Hades, he would give permission for a dead soul to return to life.

Poseidon > Peter Moodiest, greediest, most vengeful god on Olympus. He loved throwing earthquakes and tidal waves at those who upset him. He spent 8 years plaguing Odysseus for killing the Cyclops. Tried a few times to overthrow Zeus. Most of his myths involve schemes to edge out the other gods and expand his domain. 'Nuff said.

Dionysus > Stiles The god of wine, madness, hallucination, homosexuality and effeminacy. He alternated periods of deep profound meditation with maddened frenzies and revelry. He’s sometimes laid-back and called a 'joy-god’ but he is also known to be unbelievable cruel. He wandered wherever he wanted and any king who objected to his presence was driven completely insane (sometimes their whole families or their entire country was as well) to unbelievably bloody effect. He’s two-sided and unpredictable, showing both the heights of greatest potential and the darkest danger of harm to ourselves and others, very much like Stiles. People tend to gloss over how vindictive he can be. He was however, one of the few gods to be faithful and respectful to his wife.

Artemis > Allison I feel like this is overdone b/c of the archery but it’s deeper than that. Goddess of hunting, wilderness and sudden death, protector of young women. Artemis was very confident and prone to losing herself in her impulsive vengeful rages. She only truly loved one man and was tricked into killing him, much like Gerard tried to do. She brought sudden death to infants, girls and women, her role as protector had another side as she was also the instrument of their destruction.

Apollo > Jackson The original overachiever, literally the golden son of the pantheon. Disgustingly good at everything and never humble about it. Hated being shown up at anything and took vicious revenge for it every time (once skinned a satyr that played better music than him and gave the judge permanent donkey ears). Wicked jealous streak. Hated the intermingling of mortals and gods, felt that they should 'know their place’. His symbols were wolves and snakes.

Hestia > Danny Quiet, respectful, kind and forgiving, friendly. Even with all their infighting, raging tempers and bitter jealousies everyone liked Hestia. She was worshiped at EVERY temple, regardless of who it was dedicated to.

Hephaestus > Derek Lonely, injured god often shunned and abused by the other gods, he was cast out of Olympus. Not being very social, he quickly gave up on being treated better and just wanted to be left alone to try and create something in his forges. He is known to be strong and dependable, he was a god of fire and could not be burned. Married off to a slightly unwilling Aphrodite, he was often miserable as she slept around on him despite his loyal and faithful love. I have strong Derephaestus feelings. Fun fact, Hera conceived Hephaestus with the use of an herb without any male help, I can totally see Talia doing something like that.

Eris > Kate Discord, strife, contention and rivalry, sinister and mean, her greatest joy is to make trouble. She haunts battlefields and delights in insatiable bloodshed.

Aphrodite > Isaac Hedonistic goddess of love, sex and beauty. Mercurial, meddling and weak willed. (I love Isaac, but his loyalty is very wishy-washy) Loved adorning herself with elegant, highly fashionable clothing, she was never seen without her girdle. (*cough* scarf *cough*) Stuck in arranged marriage with Hephaestus (Derek) but not loyal to him. Had many lovers of all persuasions and was very sexually free. Lover not a fighter.

Ares > Liam God of war, rage, courage and manliness, but also of fear and cowardice. Although well trained he represented not the strategy of war, but frenzied bloodlust and close quartered combat. He acted on primal and primitive instinct and actually lost more often than he won. As a child he was captured and kept in a jar, almost losing his mind until Hermes (Scott) rescued him. Had a hard time connecting with the other Olympians and didn’t make allies easily, but would often jump into hopeless fights he couldn’t win in defense of those few he cared about. Very straight forward he never used trickery and thus fell for it constantly.

Hermes > Scott God of hospitality, diplomacy, persuasion, protector of the home and guard dogs. Known as the ambassador of the gods for his persuasive negotiation skills, also the protector of sacrificial animals, shepherds and travelers. Given many responsibilities by Zeus due to his trustworthiness, even Hades liked him enough to give him a free pass to travel the underworld. Found two snakes in mortal combat and convinced them to reach a peaceful solution, they wound themselves around his staff and live forever in perfect harmony. He has helped almost every god at one time or another.

Athena > Lydia Goddess of wise council, reasoning, war strategy and defense, the arts, military victory, mathematics and skill (artistic/lingual/craftsmanship/etc). She was born in full armor and is companion to and patron of heroes. She taught humanity the skills of shipbuilding, navigation, agriculture and metallurgy, she also invented the chariot, the bridle, the pot, the trumpet, the flute, the rake, the plow and the yoke. Basically everyone is useless without her and she knows everything about everything. She is rarely the aggressor in her disagreements and uses her skills in wars of defense.

wearefallensouls said to quoted-books: Hi, can you recommend any non-romantic (at least not main plot) books that have someting to do with history or mythology. (Sorry if I accidentally send this twice)

It didn’t come up twice and even if it had- no worries at all! It is interesting to me to see how many mythology based books to feature romance. I guess, romance was featured quite a bit in the original stories too. I have to admit that I have read A LOT of Persephone/Hades type spin-offs so I can’t really say anything either haha, but here are some that do not feature romance as a main vehicle for the plot to continue! Hope these help!

Also, I wasn’t sure which age group to pick from so it’s kind of all over the place. If I picked too many ones considering in the JUV/YA category, just let me know, and likewise with Adults! I didn’t put Rick Riorden’s series on there because I feel like it’s pretty well-known at this point but that’s a series to consider too.

1. American Gods by Neil Gaiman

“I believe that mankind’s destiny lies in the stars. I believe that candy really did taste better when I was a kid, that it’s aerodynamically impossible for a bumble bee to fly, that light is a wave and a particle, that there’s a cat in a box somewhere who’s alive and dead at the same time (although if they don’t ever open the box to feed it it’ll eventually just be two different kinds of dead), and that there are stars in the universe billions of years older than the universe itself.”

2. Loki’s Wolves by K.L. Armstrong and M.A. Marr- categorized as JUV but I enjoyed it!

3. Metamorphosisby Ovid

“Happy is the man who has broken the chains which hurt the mind, and has given up worrying once and for all.” 

4. The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”

5. The Once and Future King by T.H. White

“The bravest people are the ones who don’t mind looking like cowards.”

6. The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker

“All of us are lonely at some point or another, no matter how any people surround us. And then, we meet someone who seems to understand. She smiles, and for a moment the loneliness disappears.”

I just realized I totally focused more on mythology than history- so let me know if you want some more purely historical novels too! J

Thanks for the question! Happy reading!
