Ichthys is my unexpected other favourite. I love him. I know I love people who are a little bit like him in real life, and I know they also exasperate me. But there is something so irresistibly pure about Ichthys, something so innocent – there’s great beauty in that.
Since I recently decided to read all of his stories, the obvious place to start is his sequel, which I viewed with a measure of trepidation, because apparently somebody is trying to kill my darling. That’s what the blurb says, but, as we’ve discovered frequently with Voltage, that’s not entirely true. Ichthys is just collateral damage, as the real targets are his parents. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

L’État c’est Moi
Me: Gah! You mean I have to PLAY the bastard?? 😉
The Librarian: You will learn to… tolerate him. 😝😝
Me: The hair will probably save him. And [my] having read Zyglavis’ sequel.
The Librarian: As it does most Leos. He might actually be more up your alley than Scorpio. The MC is required to be a bit more forceful and brash to get along with him.
Me: Damn. Now I’m almost excited!
The Librarian: Pro tip: shoot Zyglavis dirty looks whenever you can.
Me: I COULD NEVER! He’s my man. 🖤 Wait. That means you totally did!
The Librarian: No, I didn’t!!! I didn’t even know him and couldn’t. But it was one of the options and in the POV it’s made clear that it was the correct choice.
So, Voltage has finally transferred Star-Crossed Myth to Love365, and as a treat, they offered us Leon’s route for free. Well then. I guess I have no choice but to read it. The things I’ll do in the interest of… uh… SCIENCE! Yes. Science.

Breaking the Law
Since Voltage are leaving me high and dry with the next instalment of the Paradiso Four, I’m going back to my greatest love of all: Star-Crossed Myth. Now you also have a Whitney Houston song stuck in your head, or the one from Judas Priest. Either way, you’re welcome.
Zyglavis is my man. We’ve established that. When I saw the cover image of his sequel, I knew I HAD TO KNOW. How dare you throw my man into a dungeon? What could he possibly have done? And how can it possibly not have been entirely justified? This is Zyglavis we’re talking about! Never was there anyone more proper, more just, more inherently LAWFUL GOOD than this man! HOW DARE YOU? I’m looking at you, King.

The Abyss Also Gazes Into You
Ah, Partheno, the most beautiful of all the gods! Adored in the heavens for his charm and beauty, he is the paragon of gods, and your true champion… Or so you thought.
Before I began to read, I was aware that Partheno probably required a trigger warning of some sort. I knew this was going to be the most difficult of the stories I’ve read. This, because Partheno is, actually, twisted. In this case, it’s not an exaggeration of some harmless fun and games, no: there is a real abyss here, and as the MC, you walk right into it.

Of Love and Duty
Maybe I’m doing the Wishes guys wrong, but I think that the job really isn’t as hard as working in Punishments. Humans do not tend to be overjoyed when they’re being punished for their wrongdoing, so the gods in this department face a lot of adversity.
Here, now, is the Minister of Punishments himself, Zyglavis, god of Libra, he who holds the scales of justice. He is calm, composed, rational, and very, very pretty. But I digress. I wanted to see a story from the second set, and Zyglavis is simply the guy who interests me the most. He is my type, of course.
