The One Consumed - Zillabird - Batman (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
Jason is a nature god with too much power and not nearly enough control. A mistake makes his father, King of the Gods, send him to the Underworld for a short period of time to see the consequences of further reckless behavior. There he meets King Richard, ruler of the Underworld and god of the dead, lonely and desperate for affection. But nature gods weren't meant for darkness and death and soon Jason is eager to return to the surface.

Only Dick might not be ready to let go...

Kingcup and xeranthemum for exr, please?
(Sorry for the wait, Anon! I hope you enjoy it all the same. Have some ancient Greek AU with some mythological elements and way, way too many references and allusions and outright textual echoes. CW for canonical character death.)

Kingcup- youth, innocence, dawn; Xeranthemum- eternity, immortality

Silence is the Speech of Love
Grantaire's life has a pattern: he pays his respects to Aphrodite, he goes to work, he loves Enjolras and provokes him because he can't bring himself to do otherwise. That seems unlikely to change, at least until Enjolras speaks out against the gods and ends up cursed. Grantaire does his best to help him, but it turns out it's just as hard to love Enjolras up close as it is from afar.

A Private Confrontation - tothewillofthepeople - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Feuilly speaks up for the first time. “What you have to understand is that we exist solely to inspire art and literature– and science, though not as it’s known now.” He spreads his hands to indicate the entire world. “It isn’t plausible to assume that we’re in some way responsible for every possible work in those fields. Does humanity need us? Yes. Can they still function without us? Yes.”

“So we go along living our lives and knowing that people all around us, who see or hear us or know us, are inspired,” Bossuet says thoughtfully. “It’s a beautiful thought, for the most part. But we have no way of knowing everything we influence. No one dedicates their work to the muses anymore.”

The Subtle Grace of Gravity - samyazaz - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
There are plenty of rooms on the ship that have windows, but they've always been given to Security, and to those whom Security values or desires something from. Still, they can't keep the stars entirely to themselves. There are cleaning crews and service technicians who must be allowed in to do their jobs, and word spreads through them, in brief whispers exchanged in the corridors, in notes and hearsay and rumor.

There's a planet outside, an actual planet.

The Lonely Sea and Sky - samyazaz - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Grantaire once swore that he'd never set foot on the shore so long as there was a drop of ocean left to swim in, but when his fellow selkies start going missing, he sets aside his own distaste for the people of the land in order to come up and find out what's happened to them. He doesn't account for meeting Enjolras, however, or his passionate group of friends who are very concerned about the dwindling population of the local "seals", and the poaching that they're sure is taking place. When Enjolras seizes upon Grantaire's pelt as his prime piece of evidence, Grantaire has to figure out how to get it back before it's too late, and he ends up trapped on land forever.

Not sassy, angry. There's a difference. (Monster Grantaire: Day 16)
Enjolras waits by the computer. He’s memorized the difference between their respective timezones–6 hours–and he has his google calendar set to alert him exactly when it’s dusk over in Paris. He never does things halfway; Enjolras is thoroughly prepared.
So he grabs lunch on the go and goes to the same empty classroom as usual, munching away (it was the only way his friends could make sure he was eating lunch consistently: if he was eating it with his boyfriend) and waiting for the skype connection to load up.

“A favour,” Grantaire repeats, and his lips curl up slightly, not quite a smile yet. “What would I get out of doing you a favour, fair Aphrodite?”

“A boon of your choice,” Enjolras tells him, because that much should be obvious. His eye catches on a bead of sweat travelling down Grantaire’s bare torso, and it is in this moment of distraction that he adds, “Anything you wish.”

The Undone and the Divine - prouvairing - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
“Ah yes, the usual tale?” he mutters. “What is the god of love and beauty doing, with such a hideous wretch for a husband?”

He says so lightly, like he has heard it a thousand time. He has. He says it like it is a joke, not to be taken seriously. Enjolras knows better, knows Grantaire hurts way more than he shows.

So his thumbs brush the soft skin beneath Grantaire’s eyes and he smiles.

“Loving him,” he says.

Maybe something like: E/R, Persephone and Hades AU, but with Enjolras as Hades? That idea has been floating around in my brain, make what you will of it! :) Thanks for being wonderful, your stories always make me smile.

Pandemos - Chapter 1 - prouvairing - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
The first time Aphrodite appears in his workshop, Grantaire thinks he must be hallucinating.

Life does not change very often, for the deathless gods.

But Enjolras is quickly running out of places to hide from his relentless suitors. There is about one place where no one is likely to look for the god of love and beauty – the heart of Aetna, where the smithing god lives. Except Grantaire is not quite sure what Enjolras would ever be doing in a burning-hot furnace, watching him work day in, day out. And it might just turn out that despite their disagreements, they get along better than expected.

Even the Fates know that this changes everything.

He recognises the naked man. And it’s not even because he’s a widely televised serial killer. Grantaire recognises the naked man because he’s spent the last two months of his life carving said naked man out of marble.

“Oh my God,” Grantaire says again. “Apollo.”

“I don’t like that name. I never liked that name,” Not-A-Serial-Killer says. “Can I have another, please?”

His Loving Lips of Wine by RsCreighton & samyazaz
There's a child on the other side of the door, smudged with dirt and looking not sorry at all for the disturbance. "Begging your pardon," he says, and doesn't sound like he means it one bit. "But the carriage is waiting for you."

"Carriage?" Grantaire laughs, but stops quickly, as it only makes his head hurt worse. "You have the wrong door."

"I don't," the child says, sticking out his chin and giving Grantaire a look like he'll drag him out by his shirt tails if it comes to it. "You're Grantaire, and I'm here to escort you, and you should really stop blinking at me and get your boots on. It doesn't do to keep these folks waiting."

Grantaire squints at him for a long moment, but the child stays as he is, heaving a great sigh and rolling his eyes toward the ceiling. "I'm not hungover. I'm still drunk," Grantaire says, with the weight of proclamation.

The child heaves a sigh and leans in, through the doorway, and grabs Grantaire by the sleeve of his shirt. "Congratulations," he says, dry as dust, and pulls Grantaire down the hallway to the stairs, and outside to the street. Where there is, in fact, a carriage, and a bay stallion pawing at the cobbles and tossing his head as he waits for them.
