ASPHODELS - Hades/Persephone Playlist

“I will return 
From you I will return 
I will be always in the wind that goes”

Playlist that I was listening to while reading “Receiver of Many” by KataChthonia (HERE:http://archiveofourown.org/works/690880).

“You said you loved me before you were shot,” she said, desperately trying to push those thoughts from her mind. “How long?”

He sighed. “There’s no easy way to answer that. I was often and correctly referred to as cold and hard-hearted for most of my life. I buried the need to experience love, and with it every other emotion, so I could survive— so all of us could survive. And that instinct didn’t leave me once my imprisonment and the war were ended. But throughout the aeons it took to accept the lot I received, I would often reflect on who you would one day become— and how very much you would mean to me. I often thought about you. I even… I dreamed about you sometimes. If that was… as close as I could come to feeling love, then…” He trailed off and looked down. He’d swore on the Styx to tell her.

“How long?” she whispered.

“Persephone…” Hades Aidoneus waited, made sure his wife’s eyes met his, that he had her full attention before he dared to say it. “Persephone, I have loved you and only you for forty thousand years. And I will love you and only you until the stars are shaken out of the sky.” {X}
