Film Noir Hades by suburbanbeatnik Film Noir Hades by suburbanbeatnik
I've recently become obsessed with Hades from Disney's "Hercules," and after reading Quantum_Witch's excellent fanfic "Hope Springs Eternal," I was racking my brain, trying to figure out how I could pull off my own Hades/Persephone fic. Well, one day a light bulb went on over my head. There was no way I could pull off a Greek mythology setting, as it had already been done plenty of times before; but if I took the basic story, with the dynamics as established in the Disney movie, and set it in 1940s New York... well, hey presto! I now had something I could sink my teeth into.

So, Hades, in this as yet untitled fic, has become Nick Haden, nightclub owner, gangster and the fast-talking, embittered half brother of Rex Marchan, a newspaper magnate so powerful he practically owns Manhattan. Haden, of course, has a brain which never rests, and is busy with his own schemes to bring down his brother and once and for all take control over Olympic News Corporation, Inc.

It is a pretty good idea, but I've stopped writing fanfic. Maybe I'll recycle it for an original story at some point.

Why, thank you! And I have more sketches to upload as well. By the way, what do you think of the whole concept of the AU 1940s fic to begin with? I know it's pretty out there...

the 1940s thing is pretty wiggy. I've never read anything like it. I've seen takes on modern Hades & Persephone, but nothing where someone's actually taken them back-in-time-yet-forward-in-time. it's creative. is it just a basic love story, or is Hades + Persephone only the foundation, it gets complicated, etc.?

Wow, how shall I begin? It's quite complicated, actually- in essence, it's basically like an old film noir movie from the '40s, with lots of intrigue, sex, backstabbing and violence. The Hades character, Haden, is only laying the groundwork for a complicated new scheme against his hated brother when he approaches the Persephone character (Tricia)... he little expects, of course, that he'd end up falling for her. As in the best noirs, the affair acts as a catalyst, and things spiral out of control- and all hell (figuratively speaking) breaks loose. There's cocaine, counterfeiting, blackmail, courtroom drama, and a club called Hell, guarded by a big black mastiff named Cerberus. (Pain and Panic are in it too, as two bumbling jazz musicians named Pat and Pauly, who play the French horn and the tenor sax, respectively.)

I can tell you about this more on Livejournal, if you're willing to friend me. I can be found here... [link] Thanks for being interested in all this! :D

...forgive the double post, but I just realized you two fans met. And I'm to blame, partially.

What have I done? (j/k)
