This was previously titled Strange Twists. It has outgrown that title
over the years, and so I've edited earlier parts and am carrying on. To
any one interested who has previously read this. . I've expanded some
scenes, rearranged others, changed some concepts and just generally
thrown in a bunch more angst.
This fiction mentions child abuse, both physical and emotional. There's a rape scene.
Later parts also discuss rape and has some m/f relationships. There are the strangest
family dynamics that I could think up. This is not your typical 'We hate Ares because...'
I have tried to make it plausible, if not believable, or something like that.
Most of these characters are not mine. They belong to the PTB and I only
borrow them for entertainment purposes. Any characters that you do not
recognize are mine. You can love them, hate them, and pet them and you
can even use them but please give credit where it is due.
Thank yous and all that:
Beth is the best feedbacker in the world. This works even when you are
swamped with all the worse things life can throw at you. You open an
email and she's asking about your story and bam! You feel just a little
better. That doesn't mean I wrote more. It just made me feel fuzzy.
I'd like to thank Shamenka for 'The Fool The God'. Why? Because I feel
like it. Because it is the most awesome fanfic in the world. It gave me
the idea for this in a vague sort of way. I'd also like to thank atheea for
her characterization of Hestia. I'm shamelessly borrowing from it. Last but
not least... Hergerbabe. It was 'The Plan' that got me back to writing this
Betas, I have been blessed to work with some great people through out
various sections of this fic. From its inception: Lori Bush, and D'nalia. Now
that I've picked it up again: Ellen, Christine, Star Earth Angel, and Dane, Hugs
to all of you and everyone else.
summary: When an old prophecy of the fates starts coming true, no one in
its path will ever be the same again
