Medusa's Tale, by Area 51 Fugitive

  • Recommended by: Sasha Honeypalm
  • Status: One-shot
  • Synopsis: Medusa tells her story to Perseus.
  • Advertisement:
  • Pairing(s): hints of Medusa/Athena, but can be taken platonically.
  • A version of the Medusa story that amazingly manages to keep Medusa, Athena, and Perseus all sympathetic.

Loved by Death, by Airam S 720

  • Recommended by: Mya Applesauce
  • Status: Completed
  • Synopsis: Ironically enough it was Demeter who finally got Persephone to forgive her husband.

Though it certainly wasn't on purpose.

  • Pairing(s): Hades/Persephone

''Entanglement, by Frecklehead

  • Recommend by: Shatterstar
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Poseidon and Amphitrite - how they came to be.
  • Pairing: Amphitrite/Poseidon
  • An extremely well-written romantic comedy fantasy story that took a character that is barely a footnote in mythology and transform her into one of the most compelling, vibrant and entertaining goddesses. Reading the story, it is easy to see how in love as well as dysfunctional the two of them are.

''The Aeneid, by Virgil

  • Recommended by: Pretty much ever literature professor.
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An expanded story for the minor character Aeneas.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

  • Recommended by: Sigrun Naryon
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The greek gods and heroes in modern times. What could go wrong?

''The King's Cup, by Pondermoniums

  • Recommended by: Andi Man
  • Status:Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Unseen and unheard, Ganymede moves through the palace of Olympus with the ease and inconspicuousness of a servant, or at least the gods and goddesses of Olympus do well at playing their part. What reasons have they to worry from a lone human amongst immortals?

Raised in luxury and tasked with keeping Zeus's goblet and plate full of nectar and ambrosia at all times, Ganymede has never wanted for anything under the watchful eyes of Zeus and Athena, never feared even the volatile Ares, trained as he is at being invisible.


Until now.

  • Pairing: Zeus/Ganymede
  • Good characterization of all parties involved, engaging writing with an enthralling plot to keep things interesting.
