~ All the King’s Horses: Tales of Apotheosis ~

“Those who know, not only that the Everlasting lies in them, but that what they, and all things, really are is the Everlasting, dwell in the groves of the wish fulfilling trees, drink the brew of immortality, and listen everywhere to the unheard music of eternal concord.”

~Joseph Campbell

A note to the reader: Some stories will happen concurrently with others. To denote this extra lines will surround the parallel stories.




Lies

Through an elaborate set of illusions Harlan is able to trick the world, himself and even Fate itself into believing he was ever mortal to begin with.

Up and Over

Laurel sets her sights on reaching the top of Mount Olympus. After a lengthy climb, an encounter with an old enemy, and a fate-spinning spider she reaches her goal. Her half-uncle Ares assists in the removal of her mortal shell.

Down and Out

Gunnar, Brendan & Ciara begin a descent into Míctlan to rendezvous with the dead god Vidar in the hopes of finding a way to stop the Aesir/Atzlánti war from behind enemy lines. Fearing for Laurel’s life Gunnar ‘Comes Running’ with Ciara, Brendan and the husks of 4 dead suns in tow. The suns burn away the impurity of Gunnar and Brendan’s mortality as they arrive on Olympus. Ciara’s mortal essence was made of sterner stuff though and she was lost to the band somewhere between Here and There.
