HSO bonus round 1 fill I did. Prompt was Jake <3 Jane, Stream of Consciousness and Myth.
Just as a warning, I really cannot pull off stream of consciousness. So this is just a kind of shoddy attempt where I basically decided on the plot, put on some music, and then vomited onto my keyboard until words happened.
I tried to incorporate Greek mythology, specifically the Minotaur myth with mentions of King Minos and Icarus. Jane and Jake are labyrinth sacrifices.
They die together at the end. I think it’s probably stupidly incomprehensible but I think some of the words look pretty next to each other and I enjoyed writing it.
"Caged like we were animals and when we were forced to take up the labyrinth we brought ourselves to the king
in hopes that we would be free soon” but they looked at them and whispered like the north wind in the tune of lies and he said he would do whatever it took to stay together. “and i made a promise as a gentleman. I would never break an oath to her never on purpose”; her light shivering fingers on him were enough to keep from pacing like they were animals. So he was thankful to her once again, for being his balance instead of his cage.
