Welcome to our newest monthly feature, a monthly “round up” of fan creations and original creations by people involved with Duck Prints Press! This list is “opt in,” so these three works were submitted to us by their two creators. We only opened the list for submissions a few days ago, so July our list is small, but we look forward to featuring a growing diversity of works by people who work with us in the months to come!
and the fierce reluctance of disastrous stars by nottesilhouette / @nottesilhouette
fiction || percy jackson & the olympians || no ships, platonic or familial || teen & up || major character death || 2,488 || ongoing series
summary: That voice, so full of hope and horror, is shouting now, banging and scratching and tearing itself raw against the bars of his compartmentalization. Something is wrong, and it wants Nico to know — to notice.
Nico doesn’t care. His bones have calcified this quiet numbness, and his body saps strength from the hellscape of Tartarus, and his heart glitters red like a pomegranate’s shell. He survives.
At this rate, the voice will not.

and mix his immortality with death by nottesilhouette / @nottesilhouette
fiction || percy jackson & the olympians || no ships, platonic or familial || teen & up || major character death || 639 || ongoing series
summary: Luke is a brother turned enemy to the people he called family, whom he raised and praised till the heavens came crashing down to crush his heart.
Iapetus is a titan turned ally to the people he called nemeses, whom he despised and demised till hell rose up and held its hand out to hold.
In Tartarus, any kind of kindred spirit is more alive than the death that swallows their hope whole.

The Meaning of Home by Tris Lawrence (tryslora) / @tryslora
fiction || original work || poly (one gender: male) || teen & up || no major warnings apply || work in progress
summary: Chapters 28-31 of the serialized novel “The Meaning of Home.” In which Pawel manages to send his son’s mother off to disappear (again), and gets in far deeper with Leo and Colt than he expected. A story of magic, second chances, and avoiding looking at the relationships in front of you by investigating every possible mystery that presents itself. All while dealing with a lot of kids.
