DT: Review Si  
The Fic: I Won't Say It
The Author: Melora Maxwell
Rating: PG-13 (I absolutely refuse to use the FFN system)
Fandom: Disney's Hercules
In a Nut Shell: "After the little incident with Hercules, Hades has been repaid on the scales of cosmic justice by finding Persephone, goddess of rebirth and woman of his dreams."
Stand-out Pairings: Hades/Peresphone (duh), and smatterings of Hercules/Megara and Bremos/Nike (You'll see...)
Grammar/Spelling: 9.5/10. The occasional misspelling and grammatical error, but everyone does that.
Originality and Creativity: 10/10. The way this author manages to combine the original Greek myths with the Disney version is outstanding. And after taking care of the actual abduction-myth-with-consequences, things get interesting. Plus, this gal includes the other pantheons - the Egyptian one is playing a prominent role in the latest chapters.
Plot and Characterization: 10/10. Squee! Aside from the bit of mushiness, Melora does an excellent job of keeping Hades in characters, and her takes on the other gods stay faithful to those in the Disney version (with some liberties, obviously) as well as inserting "original" characters (her own takes on the gods not present in the movie) that fit in beautifully with the established setting but still retain their own quirks and personalities. <3
Status: WIP at 49 chapters, 120,013 words.
Nota Bene: Yes, Virginia, there are good Disney fics at there. And don't ask me what I was going in that section of FFN, I'm not sure myself.
Spoonage: None, unless you can't stand the Disney movie or you decide you don't like how Hades is portrayed.
