miabria: Those Who Dare
Many have heard the timeless story of Persephone's abduction, but very few know the true story. Persephone, formerly known as Kore, stumbles upon the Underworld one day and, much to the surprise of Hades, decides to stay. This is the story of Persephone's immortal life in the Underworld and everything she has endured as its queen. (Story also on under the same username)

Greek mythology: Kore by oneiriad
Summary: The day her mother gives birth to a horse is the day Persephone decides that she really needs a plan.
Reccer's Notes: In which Demeter wants her daughter to marry and have children. At first Persephone don't get what the fuss is about, but once she does... well. She is not very onboard with any of it. Luckily, family is here to help!
This is a very light-hearted story, fun and at time very tongue in cheek (but don't tell Zeus), but it also covers serious matters.

Greek mythology: Kore, by oneiriad
Summary: The day her mother gives birth to a horse is the day Persephone decides that she really needs a plan.
Reccer's Notes: This is a lovely fic, filled with humor and an excellent portrayal of asexuality. Persephone's mother is REALLY set on the idea that Persephone will get married someday. You'll never guess what Persephone comes up with to get out of it!

My Dinner With Persephone - Rules for Anchorites
I have a lot of things. Bad parents, abandoned kids, broken girls getting whole, poorly socialized psyches incapable of understanding social systems. I have a lot.

But in the end, I just can't stop writing about Persephone.

spuffyduds: Persephone Lied
The truth is, I was bored.
My mother blissing ahead of me, rosebuds rising in her footsteps,
And I skulking behind, thinking,
Oh look. She walks in beauty.

Love Like Other Things - lettered - Greek and Roman Mythology [Archive of Our Own]
She outgrew love like other things: home and flowers blown, fruit fallen from the vine. Winter came and laid its blanket down. Six seeds within her pulled her underground, with stones.

Fingernails still grow after death, and her skin grew white within those walls. Tresses, lips and lashes grew black with fungus. Like decay, she grew into a queen, all her flowers gone.

Underneath, grain and home curled in sleep. They did not disturb her now, like other things.

She never grew to love him.
