OK BUT MODERN MYTH AU where the children who enter the underworld are all like ‘but…. why isn’t your hair blue fire?’ and persephone is just ‘ i know right, i keep telling him it would look fine af’ and hades is just sighs
Persephone is the girl who drinks pomegranate juice
And sits in the corner
She takes photos of nature

There is something dangerous about a teenage goddess. These abnormal, peculiar youths. One possesses a skilled tongue, silky and delicious, yet so dangerous, curled in a pool of poison. Another only wakes at the howling of her huntresses and another could make the world quake, her wit as her only weapon. One is beautiful and indispensable, she feeds the world with lies and burning ashes. Another tie souls to each other, leaving them to rot and decay together until only one survives and another became so sad and overpriced that she became something no one could receive, no one deserved. These girls were queens, rulers amongst men and feral beings that slowly learned, by the centuries, how to tame their darkness.

« the sun and the moon. dearest brother and sister, opposites and incomplete. their love for each other is brutal, yet hidden under a veil of stars. they rarely agree on anything, really. one shining bright in the sky, the other guiding lost souls in the dark. but you know what they say about twins; they are two sides of the same coin. a golden coin. »

She is loved by many, her popularity obvious but never mentioned by her own lips. Her foot taps along to the latest tunes, always one step ahead of the top 40 charts, unearthing new music as if hidden gems hidden beneath the dirt. Slender fingers twist around headphone wires, smiling as she spots a pretty girl on the bus. Or in the park. Or from across the classroom. Gracefully, she introduces herself, eyes sparkling with the prospect of another person to share her love.

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix,angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night,who poverty and tatters and hollow-eyed and high sat up smoking in the supernatural darkness of cold-water flats floating across the tops of cities
