Gerald for the fanfic thing

He was what you would call “the new guy in town”. Gerald was walking through the colorful streets of the Land of Remembered with a bag, admiring how colorful and vibrant the dead were. Endless fiestas at every corner, the music, the food, it certainly made him feel like an outsider and yet never more at home. 

He noticed stares and whispers from citizens as he and Rahui passed through one of the main streets. “You must forgive them, Gerald, they haven’t seen an angel pass through here since… well since my father and uncle. Ah, so he is an angel. Gerald concluded, convinced with Rahui’s cute white, feathery wings and his rather angelic face. He was extremely thankful to have Rahui helping him adjust to his new home, smiling as Rahui played a tune.

“I hope I don’t leave a bad first impression then.” 

author’s note: Gerald, featuring Rahui! @the-musical-cc‘s oc

Summoning - Land of the Dead (Oath Bound, 2006)

As faint as deepest sleeper’s breath
An echo came as cold as death
Long are the paths, of shadow made
Where no foot’s print is ever laid

No moon is there, no voice, no sound
Of beating heart; a sigh profound
Once in each age as each age dies
Alone is heard. Far, far it lies

choir:
Upon the plain, there rushed forth and high
Shadows at the end of night and mirrored in the sky
Far far away beyond might of day
And there lay the land of the dead of mortal cold decay

GREEK MYTHOLOGY MEME 
↳ [1/1] Favorite Underworld Story - Hades and Persephone 

Hades took Persephone before she could even think to utter a word, she was whisked off her feet onto the God’s golden chariot. As the crack of the whip upon his majestic horses brought her to her senses, she realized she was about to taken into the black depths from which he’d come. The thought of this brought terror to her heart, yet any screams of protest were soon lost within the darkness, as they descended quickly into the Underworld below.

While Persephone’s cries could not be heard above the ground, the pain in Demeter’s heart quickly alerted her to the fact that something was terribly wrong. She searched high and low for her dear daughter, who had vanished from both the heavens and the earth. Consumed by depression over the loss of her child, she soon ceased to remember her worldly duties as Goddess of Grain and Growth. As she watched the plants wither and die all around her, she felt her own hopes begin to fade as well.

At the same time, deep down in the realm of the dead, Hades hoped to explain his actions to the sweet Persephone. Professing his love, he told her of the plan her father helped deploy and begged her to stay and be his wife. Yet, Persephone longed for something more, the comforts of her mother’s home and a view of the lush green grass and blue sky up above..
