One of my comfort-zones, a literary tic if you like, is to take a well known story or myth and rewrite it from a different perspective.
My own take on the myth of Persephone is here. It never seemed to me that she was abducted, more that she was seduced, and that every year she goes willingly to the halls of shadows. And I thought it likely that Hades has upgraded from a chariot to a 7-Series.
It’s really cold tonight and snowing lightly. Still winter. I thought this story would be appropriate.
