* [[spoiler: Minthe drugged Hades with ergot (And by Minthe's own admission, the amount she used would be a lethal amount for a mortal) and if it wasn't for his mental link with Persephone, he would've been '''raped'''!]]

to:

* Imagine this: You are informed that your partner wants to see you alone in your room, so you go. Inside the room you find a drink that you prepared earlier, so you drink it; instantly your mind begins to blur and you start hallucinating. Your body starts numbing and you can no longer move or control it and you collapse onto your bed. To your horror, another figure appears and you realise that you have been deliberately drugged and as you begin to black out, the figure attempts to rape you. [[spoiler: Minthe drugged This is what happens to Hades with ergot (And by Minthe's own admission, the amount she used would be a lethal amount for a mortal) and if in chapter 23. If it wasn't for his mental link with Persephone, he Minthe would've been '''raped'''!]]succeeded in '''raping''' him! And by Minthe's own admission, the amount of ergot she used would be a lethal amount for a mortal.]]


* Say that youíre a single mother living in a deeply patriarchal society where women are controlled by the men in their lives. Youíre pretty much pressured into betrothing your daughter to a man twice her age while she was still in the womb. After being abandoned by your baby daddy and finding out that your daughterís fiancee lives isolated from the rest of the world, youíre faced with the possibility of never seeing her again. Then, years later you discover that youíre daughter has been kidnapped by her fiancee with her fatherís permission. You donít see her for two months and you have absolutely no idea whatís happening to her. Thatís everything that is going through Demeterís head. [[AdultFear Adult Fear]] at its finest.
** Almost averted with the fact that Demeter wasn't pressured into the betrothal and people were constantly telling her that her daughter was completely safe. Not only that but Hades later told Demeter that she had full permission to see her daughter whenever she pleased because ''he'' doesn't follow the principles of what ''mortals'' do with marriage. Also when Persephone returns to the Upperworld, Demeter ups her MyBelovedSmother tendencies and later she goes out of her way to completely attempt to sabotage her daughter's marriage to the point that [[spoiler: it leads to Hades' being drugged and almost raped by Minthe.]] All this leads to Persephone CallingTheOldManOut and declaring that if she (Demeter) ever tries to interfere again, she'll never see her (Persephone) again because the seasonal deal doesn't mention that she ''must'' be with her mother during the summer months.

** [[spoiler: When that scene happens in the book, while Thanatos is acting all fine and dandy and telling Hades to get it over with, he (Thanatos) looks at Persephone and she can see that it's an act because she can see how ''terrified'' he ''really'' is.

** The Hekatonkheires. As their name suggests, they have one hundred hands on each arm and fifty heads. And they have the ability to subdue gods. And there's three of them. Think about that.



* [[spoiler: Since receiving the underworld, Aidoneus has been hearing Kronosí voice trying to tempt him to start an apocalypse. Then there's the fact that Kronos can eavesdrop on Aidonís private thoughts and use them against him...]]

to:

* [[spoiler: The vision Kronos shows Aidon and Persephone in Tartarus. It starts out fine and dandy with Hades and Persephone ruling over the heavens and expecting a child...then Persephone sees Hadesí face morph into Kronosí and it all goes downhill from there.]]
** [[spoiler: Persephone watches as a fifty foot tall Kronos terrorizes Hellas and devours all the gods, including her mother.]]
** [[spoiler: Then the vision shifts to Persephone being raped by Kronos and Aidon being forced to watch while chained to a rock with an eagle eats his insides.]]
** [[spoiler: The worst part is if Demeter doesnít put an end to Winter and balance isnít restored to the cosmos, thereís a very real possibility that everything from Kronosí vision could happen.]]

''Destroyer of Light''
* [[spoiler: While heís escaping the underworld, Sisyphus uses the Chains of Tartarus to injure Thanatos. [[{{Squick}} The chains were woven into his flesh]] and Aidon had to break both of his arms to get him free.]]
*[[spoiler: Sisyphus exploiting Winter by stealing whatís left of the earthís fertility, weakening the gods in the process and throwing the cosmos further out of balance. Eventually, he manages to accumulate enough power to possibly destroy the gods.]]
*[[spoiler: Doubles as awesome, but the scene where Persephone pulls Sisyphus from the ether, breaks his legs, summons the Keres and the Hekatoncheires, and sends him straight to Tartarus. By the time sheís done with him, Sisyphus goes from being the hubristic sorcerer king of Ephyra to a groveling, sniveling mess. Ares was visibly shaking by the end of it.

* When Minthe goes to make an ally of her father Kokytos on Demeterís orders. [[spoiler: He convinces her to stay until the famine ends, then he pretty much sells her to the men of his court. And right in the middle of an orgy between a bunch of nymphs, humans and satyrs, she gets drugged and raped by one of the satyrs.]]
** Kokytos isnít exactly harboring and feeding the mortals in his court out of the kindness of his heartÖ[[spoiler: heís keeping them as a food source for his people in case the famine doesnít let up.]]


** The Fields of Punishment are used for sinners the gods wanted to make examples of. The kicker? All the punishments they suffer are in their heads. You heard me. ''Their minds are the real prison.''
