[On Monday night, Urania considers going over to see Melpomene, perhaps taking her a coffee and sitting quietly. They live so close, their buildings only separated by the street that runs between them, close enough that she can just feel the tingle of immortality on the back of her neck when people are approaching.

Turning her telescope to Melpomene's window, she spots Thalia and Calliope moving around inside with her majesty of tragedy. Perhaps another time for coffee.

She puts in an order to postmates to be delivered to Melpomene the next morning: a couple bags of chocolate covered coffee beans.]

[Tragos’ conversation with Kaden about Aphrodite goes about as badly as Tragos predicted it would. He struggles to impress the seriousness of the situation on Kaden, who’s sleep deprived from trying to catch up on homework and who can’t reconciliate an Aphrodite who would attack someone in the street with the Aphrodite who’d been so kind to him and Marcie. Tragos shouts trying to get his point across, his fear across, and Kaden shouts right back. It's a mess.

“Maybe she just wants to look after the baby!” Kaden yells, turning in the doorway with his hand on the door, poised to slam. “Maybe the kid would be lucky to have two mothers who can’t die!”

When he storms out, he slams every door as he passes it, even stopping at the car in the driveway to open the door and slam that, too.

Tragos doesn’t go after him because the raw hurt in Kaden’s voice isn’t something he knows how to soothe. The boys never talk about their mother, but Tragos can see the ghost of her ripping at Kaden today.

Kaden doesn’t know where to go or what to do. He puts a lot of distance between himself and his house very quickly because if he doesn’t run full tilt something is gonna catch up with him and he doesn’t wanna hang around and find out what it is. There’s a freedom of thought in running this fast, and for a while that’s the only thing he needs to know.

He ends up in McDonalds because it’s open and familiar and bright, those arches like a beacon. It’s not the one he took Melpomene to but it might as well be. Kaden thinks about her and about goddesses fighting over a baby and still can’t get over it enough to see the problem, kinda blinded by the fact that the kid’s so wanted, before its born, even. And by two rich, generous goddesses, who’ve both shown him unexpected kindness.

He takes his tray of food to a corner so he doesn’t have to look over his shoulder for anything, and pulls out his phone. His stomach is squirming and he tries to calm it with a deep drink of cold raspberry coke, slowly and uncertainly typing out a message.

He stares at his phone a long time before he finally decides, and sends it to both of them. Separately.


Tragos told me about your fight. I hope you're ok.


Tragos told me about your fight. I hope you're ok.

Figured I should actually intro these two properly. First, Thalia, Muse of comedy and pastoral poetry. She's been in LA for a couple of years writing on a TV sitcom; now it's been axed, she's back in New York, teaching improv and working as an MC at Merlin's comedy club.

Second, Arthur a Bland, who took to an off-the-grid cabin in December 1999 to escape the coming Y2K apocalypse and has been chilling there ever since. Sure, he's somewhat unhinged, but he makes up for it in raw enthusiasm! Before he started spiralling in the nineties, he was a hardcore activist.

Plots, connections, friends new or old, I am down for anything!

How excited are you for tomorrow?

I was thinking...maybe in a few months, before the baby comes, we should go to California? My family has a place there, and we could go to West Hollywood and see drag shows and eat at Hamburger Mary's and just have so much fun. If we went early in June, Addy could come too if you wanted her to be there!

I was right, Aphrodite wants my baby. And I have the clawmarks and bruises to prove how desperate she is to take him from me.

Just call me Ofares, right?

[ mood | lonely ]

I feel at a loss. What to do? I am unanchored, drifting on the tide. I am a cabin in the mountains, isolated and windswept.

I am going for a drink.

Filtered to Marcie [24 Feb 2021|11:53pm]

Your never going to fucking believe what happened today, babe.

[24 Feb 2021|11:28pm]

[ mood | amused ]

Wil, Ella and I ordered pizza tonight and upon discussing why the chicken pizzas cost a bit more Ella said, "Because chickens are harder to catch than cows!" She was also complaining she was tired, so I suggested an earlier bedtime and she 'cancelled' me. "Dad, you're cancelled".

I told her cancelled dads can still set bedtimes.

...she is still watching Moana...

In not tiny sassmaster news, I am taking on the largest case we've ever tried at the heritage center, so this should be interesting. I never realised I missed law so much until I got back into it.

Hej Much, hope that load of cans made their way to happy new homes!

Talking to you was an absolute pleasure, and it made me a little bit nostalgic for the old days. I have been looking at expanding my social circle into the global pantheons and I'd love to get to know your people. You sound like a right laugh!

I feel like (I hope!) Winter is in its last gasp. The end of February approaches and with it the Sun, gradually extending his time with us in the sky. It is no Nordic winter of course, but I do like a more temperate environment. Warm breezes and sunny skies are my home!

Freyja, how is Washington? I hope you are keeping warm x

[Merry Men]

Got the 700K. Can I use some of it to fix the roof here? The rest of it, I know some charities, but I am sure the rest of you would like to nominate some too.

There's something else I wanted to mention- In the past when I have wanted to avoid pain, I have occasionally turned to substances. Opiates tend to be my substance of choice. And a few times recently I've typed out a text to Codeine, though I haven't sent it.

I'm telling you so I don't do it. I don't want to. I don't want to slip away. So, I guess...I don't know. I don't even know. Check in with me? It'll keep me from fucking up.

[22 Feb 2021|10:49pm]


WHO: Melpomene, Tragos, Aphrodite, Ares later
WHEN: Monday afternoon
WHERE: Outside Ares' gym
WHAT: Melpomene Areia, Aphrodite Areia

And I'm thrashing on the line - somewhere between desperate and divine )

[Muses and Apollo, visible to Will Stutely]

Will and I were out for dinner on Saturday and Lucifer found us. He burned my leg and threatened...worse.

I am not doing well. I am not leaving my home for the foreseeable. I thought I should tell you.

[22 Feb 2021|10:24pm]

[ mood | calm ]


I'd like to see you, with your baby being so close to delivery. I can bring you some old baby things of Theo's that I kept, and a few new things as well.

I know things have been difficult for you of late, sister. I hope I can offer you some support.

When is good for you?


I feel like you and I should talk, Musagetes. We have a lot to catch up on.
