 Orpheus and Eurydice

Title: The Gods Must be Crazy Playwrites (Right?)

Reader/Writer: fresne

Fandom: Sherlock BBC, Greek Mythology

Pairings: Sherlock/John (aka Orpheus/Eurydice), for that matter Lestrade/Molly (aka Hades/Persephone (who is also Kore and Hecate), Jim/Sebastian (aka Jason/Hercules), Jim/Irene (aka Jason/Medea)

Series: Variations on an Equation series, this is a series of Omegaverse stories that AU each other. Each story offers a variation on a gender pairing of Sherlock/John as male, female, alpha, omega, beta. This particular story is AlphaMale-Sherlock/Other-John. 

Rating: NC-17

Size: 10.4, 29:49

Music Credit: Dance of Satyrs from... practically impossible to tell given the youtube entry - Ancient Greek Music, Macedonia is Greek.

Image Credit: Edward Poynter - Orpheus and Eurydice, with cough, some mods

Warnings: Omegaverse. Err...cracky, cracky mythology. Wait, myths generally are pretty cracky anyway. John's a hermaphrodite in the mythological sense, ie. two genders as a result of being descended from Aphrodite and Hermes. There's... herm preg. Temporary death. Consensual (if not entirely on the same page) BDSM.

Summary: Where it was a generally acknowledged truth among the Argonauts that there was truly only one gender. Jason was the one who understood this, which was an opinion he expressed at length.
It should also be understood that during long sea journeys such as the Argonauts underwent,  there wasn't much to do at night but look at the stars, discuss natural philosophy, or fornicate with each other.

This isn't a crossover, so I'm not counting both fandoms for points purposes, but please tag it with both fandoms on the archive. : ) Oh, and the post needs a Hadestown tag.

Fandom: Hadestown (musical)
Pairing: Hades/Persephone
Rating: G
Length: 00:03:30
Author's Summary: Hades' greatest enemy is the one who loves him most.
Reader's Notes: Thanks so much to keerawa for giving blanket permission to podfic! This is just a tiny story, but I couldn't resist the beautiful language and imagery.

Music included in this recording is How Long? from Hadestown. Since it's a music-based fandom, this is my preferred version, but I've also included a no-music version since I speak over the music at the beginning and I know that's a problem for some people. The cover art is taken from the album artwork by Peter Nevins.

Pairing: Actaeon/Pentheus, Dionysus/Pentheus
Rating: R
Length: 59 m 07 s
Author's summary: When I was a very small child my Aunt Semele was struck by lightning and died.
Notes: This is--well, it's almost a horror story, so mind the warning tags on the AO3 page above. It's a gloriously creepy and well-written bit of mythology, and you don't need any knowledge of the play to read/listen to it, just a general knowledge of Greek mythology. Thanks to the author for letting me record it!

Download at Sendspace.

We can probably archive this under Greek mythology? It seems unnecessary to make a separate tag for the play.

Title: Gods Versus Aliens
Author/Reader: fresne
Fandom: Greek Mythology, Mahabharatha - Vyasa
Pairing: Iphigenia/Artemis, Penthesilea/Achilles, Mahabharatha-Gen
Rating: PG-13
Length: 23:18, 11.19 Mb
Music Credit: Star Trek Original Series sounds and closing credits
Summary:It may be generally understood that the Greek gods were arrogant a******s and Artemis was really good at violence.

At the dawn of the Trojan War, Iphigenia was prepared to be a willing sacrifice to Arrow Rain Showering Artemis (she's so moon-struck dreamy). Penelope was ready to do the practical thing in Ithaca. Circe had vital experiments to complete. Vital! Penthesilea was just waiting for the war to start. Achilles was looking forward to some lovely encounters with heroes. Helen was taking a hot steamy bath.

Which is why the aliens really shouldn't have tried to shock and awe the earthlings by beaming up the Queens and stealing Artemis' sacrifice. Big mistake. Huge really.

Or, how Iphigenia escaped certain death and Helen found new opportunities.
