Tartarus was a petrifying scene. As both Ares and Hercules looked down at its profound abyss, they could hear the echoes of thousands of tortured souls begging for freedom. Both men searched for the harpe through all parts of Tartarus, from the Fields of Punishment to the Asphodel Meadows. In the process, they faced numerous beasts, consisting mostly of venoumous serpents, Crocottas, and wild Lycans. The serpents were killed using sound distraction; Hercules would throw rocks in one direction and Ares would come at them from behind and step on their heads. As for the Crocottas and Lycans, they battled the animals with their own fists, sometimes pushing them down into Tartarus' ghastly pit. But they still couldn't find the harpe. So, they decided to change their methods and began to compromise with the prisoners from the Fields of Punishment. They offered freedom to any prisoners behind bars who would help them find the divine object.

After hours of searching with the help of the prisoners, they finally found it. Ares holds on to the harpe in triumph, revealing a mischievous grin at Hercules. Ares' son, Kyknos, was killed by Hercules years ago from a task assigned to him by Apollo. But the young demi-god had no idea Kyknos was related to Ares, and now it was too late to ask for forgiveness. Thus, battle begins. Ares was a skillful swordsman, and unsurprisingly he spins the harpe cutting Hercules hit after hit. Hercules had no weapon to defend himself and whenever he tried to approach Ares, the god would ferociously put the harpe between them, keeping a strong offense. Hercules was bleeding horribly and he knew he wouldn't make it if he didn't think of something fast. Then, Hercules had an idea. Ares was never defeated in battle before, he was the God of War after all, so he probably didn't have much experience on ground fighting because no enemy was ever good enough to bring the god down to the floor like that. Hercules throws dirt from the floor to distract Ares and pushes the god down. The clever demi-god grabs on to the harpe and forces its side against Ares's neck, hoping that it would knock him out. Ares struggles and chokes, attempting to get Hercules off of him. After a few minutes the God of War loses conciousness and passes out.

...

There Hercules stood, in front of the Cerberus. The beast was about three times his size, with three canine-like heads and eyes as red as fire. Hercules wasn't at full disadvantage though; he had the harpe, which should not be underestimated considering that it was the weapon that defeated Uranus, the past ruler of the Universe. Hercules approaches the beast and swings the sword towards the neck of the Cerberus's left head. He misses it. The monster was one step ahead of him and lashed Hercules' wrist with its tail. The harpe falls from the demi-god's grip. As Hercules moves rapidly to obtain his weapon the Cerberus's eyes come to life, shooting fire at Hercules' sword. The sword melted in seconds. Ah, so much for divine objects... Following, the monster moves its heads to attack Hercules next, but the demi-god runs away from the beast and hides behind a thick boulder rock. For now he was safe from the Cerberus' fire he thought to himself.



My interpretation of the Wild Lycan:

As Hercules was trying to come up with a solution, he heard clank of an armor. He peeked from his safe spot only to see Hephaestus coming his way, avoiding Cerberus' attacks. "A young woman, devoted to Persephone, prayed for my help with nice sacrificial gifts, she worried about you being gone so long!" he quickly explained as he handed Hercules a special armor from adamantine, resistant to fire and any damage. Hercules quickly dressed while asking his savior for a favor: "Can you please deliver Ares to Persephone? He passed out and i can't take him on my own.." And so divine blacksmith took the god of war and left. He did betray me after all, our hero thought to himself, remembering Charon's words.

There was no time for thinking though. Cerberus was still after him and he just came around the corner of his hiding. Hercules barely escaped monsterous teeth by rolling away. Sure, armor protected him from fire but nothing protected his head from decapitation! He had no weapon, how was he supposed to kill a monster now? But then he got a brilliant idea. Armor would allow him to get close enough to touch the 3 headed dog. After that he can only rely on his brutal force, which he as a demigod possesed quite some.

Hercules ran towards his opponent with all his speed, not caring about fiery attacks. He jumped, did a sault mid-air and landed on beast's back. He pressed his thighs together and gripped with them as much as he could as the dog ferociously tried to shake him off. Hercules used all his strenght to grab Cerberus by the throat and choke him harder than any sadist ever dreamed of doing... The three heads slowly gave up resisting and trying to bite and one after the other collapsed to the floor. All there was left to do was get the eyes, take them to the witch and he could finaly save his beloved Althaia. If it wasn't too late? And what should he do with Athena who helped him so much? He can't just lead her on, no?

Whoever posts next is the 10th and last person (if i count corectly) so please keep in mind you have to finish the story in next post...
