    Summary

    “She’s gone,” Orpheus whispered, his voice just another breath amongst the many that blew on the wind.

    Summary

    Eurydice was a hungry young girl looking for something to eat.

     

    And Orpheus was a poor boy working on a song.

    They had no reason to know each other or meet each other, or fall in love. But they did. Between worlds, and stories, and songs, and two kids trying to survive, these two kids would fall in love. Whether it turned out well or not. They would fall in love.

    AKA: A High School Hadestown AU

    Hey there! I've never written fanfiction before, and I have no idea where this one is going, but I'm really excited! I love Hadestown, so if you do too, read this!

    Summary

    “You and Dream will leave, but you shall do so without a guide, no one will give you directions, no one will address you, no one will lay their eyes upon you. You will be on your own, Robert Gadling. Much like beautiful Orpheus was. As for Dream… he will follow after you, but you cannot look back at him or you’ll sentence both of you for eternity of damnation. Only once you pass over to the Dreaming, will you be free of my rules.”

    Hob frowned, not knowing what to make of Lucifer’s proposal, so he uttered the one question that seemed the most pressing among the others “But how will I know that you held up your end of the deal? How can I be sure that Dream will be with me?”

    Lucifer’s bright smile transformed into a grin, as they proudly stated “You can’t. That’s why it’s going to be so interesting, Robert Gadling.”

    Summary

    The stories of her life litter the fabric, in mismatched patches and an assortment of buttons that have been replaced time and time again. Ribbons and pins serve as tokens and memoirs from her travels, from spring festivals and multicolored ribbons, to silver safety pins she keeps to repair the next inevitable tear until it can be carefully sewn.

    Or: Eurydice's coat and all it has done for her pre and post the journey to Hadestown.

    Summary

    Melody and Poppy stared at the large metal train in front of them as Persephone waved goodbye. Before anyone could blink the twins climbed on.

    “Wait for us, Aunt Persephone!” They exclaimed.

    “No!” Eurydice screamed trying to pull her daughters off the train when the doors shut in front of her face. The whistle blew once more as the train began and after awhile was out of sight.

    “Orpheus, we have to go after them!” Eurydice sobbed, holding her lover tight.

    Numb and unable to comprehend the situation, he nods “Okay.”
    ——————————-
    What if Orpheus didn’t turn back to see his lover’s beautiful face? What if he made it back into town a hero, making sure all of their once dead relatives returned home safe and sound? But in return for this change in this old tale, Orpheus’ next of kin, gets into a little deadly trouble.

    Summary

    Suddenly, they stood in a pool of light. Orpheus looked at Eurydice, who was smiling even more brightly than the sunlight that gently tumbled down her shoulders.

    “Sunlight,” she said, breathless. “How? How can you call the sunlight down here?”

    The melody trailed off, and the light and warmth faded. “I don’t know,” Orpheus said. “Maybe when the Lady came to the underworld, she brought the sunlight here, too.”

    “And when she up and left,” Hermes said, staring grimly at them both, “it left along with her.”

    Summary

    Jax really had to deal with this nonsense, right here, right now, so he stepped away.

    “M-Might I ask what your name is?” He questioned, his voice softer than he expected.

    The man’s eyebrows furrowed, but he seemed to comply when words fell out of his tongue. “Geralt of Rivia.” He spoke, “And what the fuck is wrong with you?”

    Or, Geralt of Rivia meets Jax from Hadestown, since he's become a regular there, and they make good ale. That goes about as well as you expect.

    Summary

    Once upon a time there was a railroad line, don't ask where, brother, don't ask when
    It was the road to hell, it was hard times, it was a world of gods and men
    It's an old song, an old tale from way back when
    It's an old song, but we're gonna sing it again
    See, someone's got to tell the tale, whether or not it turns out well...
    Maybe it will turn out this time
