Epimetheus wasn't like Prometheus when it came to powers and magic. He had power, sure, but he'd never mastered it the way his twin had. He hadn't needed to, really. He'd never been trapped in the mortal realm after all, he came and went as he pleased- Using portals. ...Portals he generally had others open for him. However, since he was traveling alone lately, the only way to pop back home for a bit was to crack one open himself, using the only spell he knew to do so. A very blunt spell, honestly, that Prometheus had scolded him time and time again for using. 'Spells like this aren't like garage door openers, you know. They don't just open one portal, they'll open any in range,' the other titan had scolded, though all Epimetheus had said in return was 'What's a garage door?'.

That had been some time ago, but Epimetheus had used the spell many times since. He'd never noticed any ill effects personally, and didn't have the foresight to see how it might go a bit wrong. So this morning when he'd popped home to see Pandora, he'd gone on as he always did- Oblivious to any trouble he might be causing elsewhere.

(Portals are opening and closing all over london, letting things into the city from other places, times, ect. The sky is the limit here! Have anything you want slip through into the city- Or maybe let your pups go stumbling through one themselves? The choice is yours! This post will be open all next week, so tag in and then check back often! As always, we trust you guys not to go too crazy with this power, but please, no wrecking the city or doing anything that might cause gamewide issues without checking in with us first. Also, like any plot, feel free to have your pups sit out or be completely oblivious to the chaos. Assume that Torchwood and the like are keeping it out of the papers. ;) Have fun!)

Robin came back and handed him some water. "You just closed a portal like a badass," he said. "You deserve a sit-down. And." He pulled up another chair and sat backwards in it, facing Prometheus. "What are we going to do about your brother?"

The titan groaned a bit, almost sulking as he managed to sink even lower into the seat.

"I don't know. As I said, I'm hoping he's skipped back off home, but if you're talking more permanent solutions, that's not really my bag, pet. The best course of action would to trick him into pissing off Zeus or something."

He paused a beat, then looked at the puck. "Which is a terrible idea, so let's not."

"You won't find me judging you for not having family loyalty," Robin said. "My family, if you want to call it that, sucks."

Prometheus was less worried about loyalty, and more worried about putting ideas into the puck's head, but he didn't say that.

"Your family is certainly unique," the titan replied, perfectly happy to change the topic. He had no idea what he'd do with his brother if he hadn't actually left for good. ...And he wasn't keen to think on it either. Things between them were complicated. For all they bickered and tormented one another on occasion, they still shared a bond.

"I'm not even sure that family is the right word for it," said Robin, who didn't really like thinking about the other pucks, either.

"He must've been stalking you, you know," he added. "If he knew about me."

"Actually, I told him about you. ...He's not always a vindictive shit. We do have some normal brotherly conversations here and there. We talk about life, love, all sorts. You are- One of the only lovers of mine who has remained part of my life here in the realm of mankind for many, many years," the titan said softly. "I don't think he knows what to make of it, honestly."

"I think he finds me a curiosity," Robin said dryly. "His brother's favoured lover." That was a quote, but he sounded as if he didn't like the term very much.

"Yes, well, given that his love used to be a bloody statue, I don't see what he finds so odd about it," the titan huffed. "Look, he was probably just trying to wind you up. It's nothing to fuss about, I'll handle it. It'll be fine."

Though, honestly, he was a bit unsettled by the fact that Epimetheus had gone out of his way to speak with Robin on his own.

"You don't have to handle anything," Prometheus said. "He insulted me, which annoys the shit out of me, so yes, he succeeded in winding me up. But it's not like you have to defend my honor or something."

"I just don't want to see you harmed or hurt," the titan said quietly. "If I need to protect you from him, I will."

"I could take him," Robin said, sounding more sure of himself than he probably felt on that point.

"I'm not doubting your abilities, Robin," Prometheus insisted softly. "But he's an idiot, and he's powerful. ...That's a dangerous combination."

"I just don't want you to worry about me," said Robin. "You have enough to worry about on your own. Besides, how am I supposed to protect you if you're protecting me?"

"We could always flip a coin," the titan quipped, offering a faint little griin.

"I think we'll be okay just watching each other's backs," Robin said. "How are you feeling?"

"Just tired," the titan admitted. "Wasn't expecting to close a portal today. I'm alright though, really, Robin. ...I do think we should head back to yours- ours- though. Make sure nothing's popped open there."

Robin groaned. "Please let there not be a portal opened up in my living room. The housekeeper was just there yesterday."

"I'd be less fussed about the carpets, more worried about the multitude of hell dimensions that could be emptying themselves into your kitchen. ...Or worse, something whimsical and covered in glitter. Some dimensions have glitter that's near impossible to remove you know. I once scrubbed myself raw trying to get clean after an accidental trip to- Well, that's not important, point is, it's messy and it's dangerous, and my bloody brother should know better."

"Glitter is very hard to get out of those hard to reach places," said Robin.

He really, really hoped there was not a portal open in the middle of his living room. If he did, he was absolutely going to blame Prometheus' asshole brother.

He stood, and offered Prometheus a hand. "Come on, let's go check."

The titan downed his water, then took the puck's hand and hauled himself to his feet.

"Hopefully I'm just being paranoid," he said, reaching for his coat.

"I hope so too," Robin said. "I don't want to have to clean the carpets. But I'll tell you what - if you're wrong, and everything is fine there, then we can hide from the rest of the world for a while. Let it take the fuck care of itself."

Putting an arm around the puck, Prometheus led him out the shop, pausing to lock up.

"If that's what you'd like," he said, though part of him felt responsible for this mess. Like he ought to clean it up.
