Summary:

Have you ever heard the story of Orpheus, the Greek hero who traveled across deserts, oceans, and Hell itself; passing Cerebrus and Hades with the power of music, all to recover his lost love?
Have you ever wondered what that would look like done by a sarcastic, unmotivated student instead?
I...I swear it's funny.

Ok I knew the myth so I was wondering if it was a twist.  I loved this though :)

It's based on the original myth of Orpheus in the Underworld, where Hades tells Orpheus he cannot turn around to look at his wife before she stands in the light. But he does turn around, so his wife is gone. The myth doesn't make a whole lot of sense without a wife to search after but I tried.

This was really funny and I liked it but I don't understand why she can't speak.  Other than that it was excellent.
