Webcomic / The God in the Field

Go To

The God in the Field is a Fantasy Web Comic created by the writer/artist duo VVBG (Very Very Bad Girls).

The age-old story of Hades, Persephone, and a love that causes the seasons (with a yaoi twist.)

Anyone familiar with greek mythology will know that they are in for a ride. This comic will contain kidnapping, a coercive relationship with unequal power dynamics, and various other scenes from the underworld that Hades presides over. It will contain NSFW scenes.

Hosted by Tapas Media and can be read here.


This webcomic provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Adaptational Consent: Downplayed. While Hades whisks Persephone to the Underworld against his will, he is quick to take on Hades as a lover. He still has doubts about the arrangement no matter how comfortable be becomes with the Underworld, refusing to eat for fear that the food would make him forget about the surface.
  • Adaptational Sexuality: While most of the gods were known to play for both teams depending on the myth, Hades is arguably the most heterosexual, taking Persephone as his bride and any adulterous relationships he may have had (like with Minth) were women as well. Here he marries Persephone, who in this case is a male.
    • Orpheus is female in this story, but is still with Eurydice.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: Being the ruler of the realm of dreams and the dead, Hades seems to have certain customs and understanding of things different from those on the surface. For example, he was the one who planted the narcissus flowers in the field as something of a proposal ring for Persephone, believing that he said "yes" when Persephone tried to pick them since Hades considers them his flowers (having a field filled with nothing but narcissus in the underworld).

  • Claimed by the Supernatural: The moment Persephone consents to Hades' advances, his hands and feet are blackened.
  • Rule 63: The story is about Persephone being portrayed as a god instead of a goddess.
    • Orpheus is portrayed as female.
    • In mythology, the Furies are often portrayed as all female. Here, one of them is male.


How well does it match the trope?
