The door opened with a soft click, the sound nearly inaudible to human ears, but he hears it. He looked every bit as hale and hearty as ever; a god in his prime, immortal and every young with a beauty to match. And yet, he pulled his aura close to him, his eyes distant as he moved. The god was exhausted; he always was when he came back from the world he’d just visited. There, he was alone, a lone god to a universe full of people. People who cried out in his name for everything from a good harvest to political success to entire wars won in his name.

Seth had never wished for violence to be done in his name, not by his worshippers, his faithful. His priests knew that, preached a reverence for all life, and yet there were droves of men and women alike who felt that it was against some unspoken rule for people to choose not to pray to him.

Sighing, the god leaned back against the door for a moment, eyes closing as he took a moment to try to release the tension. Failing, he strode to the balcony, his form shifting as he took wing and flew over the sky of the Hub, letting the dusking sun warm his small body even as he flew upwards before dipping back down, alighting on a bench, the soft feathers of the owl fluffing out and back down where they belonged.

It was so much quieter here where no one called out his name for their wars or lives or crops. He could never simply walk away from his responsibilities, but here, at least, he could have a reprieve from them.

The feeling of her mate unsteady, unsettled, discontent in his being should not in a fairer universe be as common as it was. But than who better than Gods knew of the inherent unfairness of the universe.


A henna covered hand rose, stroking over his feathers, a gentle familiar touch. Adhira shifted on the bench, the long curl of her tail visible peeking out from the folds of her sari.

She felt his exhaustion and did what she could to soothe it.

There were no fair universes. Some were easier than others, some were kinder, but none were fair.

He hadn’t actually come here seeking his mate, looking for comfort, but neither did he shy away from her touch and comfort. Large dark eyes that spoke of the night sky closed slowly, the owl making a soft sound.

It’s always war with them. Unnecessary war. Sometimes I wish I could just reach out and take the idea away from them, snatch it from their thoughts permanently. His voice was a whisper, less spoken, even in her mind as much sighed through his aura against hers.

He hadn’t been meant to rule alone. He didn’t enjoy it, would much prefer her or one of their children, or both of their children, at his side… But to do so would be to invite the same travesties that they had befallen in the past to be revisited and he had no interest in that.

He had never been mean to rule, much less alone.

Seth was so much closer to the nature he had been created as; while she...she had become what was needed, what she needed to be.

Adhira could rule alone, ruthless and cold as humans demanded of their multifaced Gods. And Seth rebelled against that same aspect.

Adhira slipped her fingers over his breastbone, stroking the feathers there, “We’ve known this since the beginning, it was humans who stole our child’s sweetness to twist into the God they demanded for their punishment.” It was a cold comfort she offered. But her presence still reached for him.

She could think he’d never been meant to rule, but it should have been him, by all rights, to rule over half of Egypt, to care for the people there. Instead, it had gone to his brother, not due to any wrongdoing of his own, but because of nepotism. And while it had angered him, Seth had quietly done what he could. He had fulfilled his roles with honor and dignity until his nephew’s pride and greed had lead to the destruction of his priesthood. She wasn’t wrong that he hadn’t changed as much as she had, though. He was still the god he had been born as, though he took on his original form less often now than he had in the past. People found the Sha frightening, but then, it was a predator, and humanity was vulnerable to such creatures.

Where Adhira’s original domains had been filled with warmth and gentleness, Seth had been born into a domain that was by default cold and inexorable. Humanity looked at death and saw evilness and cruelty, but that was an illusion. Seth had never wanted to be frightening or impassive, thus he fought against being so harder than Adhira might.

The reminder was almost cruel. The bird shuddered, caught between enjoying the caress and shrinking away from the statement his mate made. Still, he didn’t shy away from her. “How thoughtful of you to remind me.” The words were spoken this time, coming from the owl, though the voice was the same she’d known for millennia. “There are times when I hate them.”

The death of their first child, the corruption of her beloved second...it had twisted her; Adhira blamed herself for not seeing the changes for what they truly were, the same corruption that took their son had slipped into her. Made her all to willing to be ‘evil’. If humans wished a god of punishment, a god of war and pain...she had filled those aspects with the grief filled vengeance of a mother wronged.

Seth hated Ruda for killing their son. Adhira had hated her self for letting her babies fall, betraying the core nature of ‘mother’. After that...there had been hardly any choice but to embrace the shift in her nature that had started with her sons traumatic birth.

Green slitted eyes turned to meet his, she did not need to respond; the millennium had dulled the pain, the memories, but the scars lingered, and his presence with their children only served to deepen the ache. “I think I always hate them.” Her voice was sillibant around fangs and forked tounge.

Their sons had been loved. Kayin by his father, the humans who had watched him grow, and the masses of humans who had adored the godling from his birth. Rudra had been loved by his parents, his brother, and the humans that had been closest to his parents. But their second son had grown twisted over time.

Seth blamed Rudra for killing Kayin, yes. But what tore the death god apart was the fact that he hadn’t stopped loving either of his sons. He grieved for his murdered child, and he grieved for the son that had been taken from him in a different way. A god of death and the dead, able to visit any of the souls within his kingdoms, Seth would never see either of those sons again. It was a fact he still lamented untold eons later.

To always hate… Sadness crept over him. Once upon a time, long, long ago in a universe that he had to force himself to remember the location of, she had been the voice of reason between them. It had been so long since that little island in the middle of the sea that it was easy to misplace the memory, to forget that this was not always how his beloved mate had been. The owl’s head cocked to the side, dark eyes opening to watch her, “All of them?”

The face that had never been human no matter how close she had drifted elongated, shifted, scales slipping down her form, leaving a sunset green hued constrictor speaking to and owl about the pain of loss, and the cold hate of a mothers heart - “yes all of them. I became Vengeance-“ so so long ago, that first broadcast where her skin showed finger prints - “A woman’s hate for injustice forced.” The snake rose its head, staring at the Owl - “How can I ever forgive for what they did to our babies?” Snakes could not cry, there was only the endless void of grief.

A mortal passing by would likely think it an odd sight; a bird and a snake, sharing a bench peacefully, but any who could see deeper would understand there was more than just two animals present.

She had become a goddess of vengeance for women eons ago, but Seth remembered when it had happened. He remembered his own rage at the realization of what was being done to her. She was his beloved, his mate, even if she’d left him back then for a time, it hadn’t changed that fact. Hurt, angry, anguished, he had never stopped loving her. “There are those whose hearts hold no evil, my love. What of them? What of the mothers whose children were also taken from them, who grieve as have?”

He couldn’t, not for all of his rage, his grief, or his pain, hate all of them all of the time. There were those who were innocent, after all. And it were those souls that drew him away from his hatred. “Is there none who you would find innocent?”

Scaled lips drew back; a passerby might wonder if the snake had at last decided to take its so sweetly offered meal - “shall we War again?” The simple words belayed a history of violence that left worlds ruined across the eons.

Adhira and Seth; they were circular, when one would rise into ‘maddness’ the other would gather their forces to battle. Sometimes it was Adhira protecting the children he wished to cull for disobedience, sometimes it was Seth bringing order to her Chaos.

In the end the reasons hardly mattered; the Gods made war with the same ferocity they loved. And Seth and Adhira’s Love has burned stars from the sky’s across the multiverses.
