-You can interpret this as either romantic or platonic!
Satan was born out of Lucifer's wrath. After every fit of rage, Satan is filled with regret. From his perspective, he is feeling Lucifer's emotions and not his own. In comes the identity crisis.
After getting to know you, Satan really began valuing your opinions. That's not to say he thinks you are always right but rather he really cherishes your view on things and always takes it into account. Whether the topic is morality or whether apple juice is better than orange juice, he likes to hear your thoughts on anything and everything. Great start! So when you tell him that having a common emotion with Lucifer is okay he is listening and actively thinking it over. You know when to use reason when it comes to Satan.
But you never put emotions on the back burner. Being the more emotionally experienced of the two, you more than encourage him to make sense of his feelings and accept them. It could be in big or small ways but you always pay attention to his thoughts and emotions and validate and explain them. Bonus points for finding books with emotionally complicated characters for him.
Of course he is not the one to leave such a thing without showing his gratitude properly so hang out sessions are often planned according to your needs and wants. He will get blushy and sad if you try to refuse him! You need a break from Luci's lecture? Satan is ready with an excuse! He has spend more time reading books featuring and starring humans so he could understand you better and watch out for you the way you do for him.
• he barely ever sleeps, so good luck getting him to sleep at the same time as you
• but on the off chance that you convince him to go to sleep, he's very much a big spoon
• but sometimes he'll just have you lay your head on his chest
• boi is NERVOUS
• for no reason
• tries to be all macho and be the big spoon, but by the end of the night, he's probably the little spoon
• also nervous for no reason
• definitely asks to be the little spoon though
• after doing this for just one night, this becomes your permanent sleeping arrangement
• first he has to clean all of the books off of his bed
• then you two will lay facing each other, legs entertwined
• you read until the both of you fall asleep
• before you guys actually sleep, he has you go through a nighttime skincare routine
• but once that's out of the way, you guys definitely cuddle
• he's not picky about how you're cuddling, he just wants to hold you!
• he has you sleep on top of his chest
• no blankets because this man is a space heater
• he also snores like a chainsaw, so good luck actually sleeping :/
• cuddle bug!
• both of you hug the other while facing each other
• or he'll lay on top of your chest and have you play with his hair
This is part 2 of the Hadestown AU. I will continue with the characters. Sadly not all the OM! characters have a role of their own, there simply aren’t enough important named characters in Hadestown. Think of Barbatos, Simeon and Solomon as Diavolo’s workers. No Luke here, no need to let the small angel work. :)
Satan and Asmodeus
Satan and Asmodeus are the sons of Diavolo and Persephone, who now are the ones to bring spring and summer back to the world up above. In the musical, Persephone is shown to drink a lot of alcohol, this part will be taken over by Asmodeus, Satan is the more serious of the brothers. The two sing the songs in the musical sung by Persephone, most of the time simultaneously. I will make that clear, once I write out the songs. They miss their mother very much. Though they think the way Diavolo handles her death is just wrong. You’ll see this in the song Chant.
Lucifer is Hermes, he took Leviathan in and cared for him until he met Eurydice. He’s like the narrator of the story and I couldn’t think of any other OM! character better suited for this role, than Lucifer.
Mammon, Beelzebub and Belphegor
Mammon, Beelzebub and Belphegor are the fates, the voices inside of the characters’ minds. They represent Eurydice’s hunger and tiredness and Diavolo’s possessivness (he wants to keep Eurydice as his wife). In the musical, the fates sing together most of the time, I thought it would be fitting to let the characters sing specific lines on their own. I’ll make that clear too, once I write out the songs.
You sat in your room, wondering why the brothers thought you were like Lilith...: "I'm not Lilith, I'm Mc... Did everything we've been through mean nothing.. Am I just another Lilith? Do I even belong here?... Ugh, to many questions without answers... Maybe I should talk to Diavolo about this, I could ask to go back to the human world."

Diavolo- The Demon Prince finds Nina quite interesting. With her first hand knowledge of the human world they normally sit together for afternoon tea, her happily answering whatever the Prince has inquired. He also finds Nina impersonations of all the brothers, especially Lucifer rather hilarious.
Barbatos- Her and Barbatos, when he isn’t overly busy are often found in the kitchen with Luke learning new recipes and wiping up a new batch of sweet tarts and cookies for afternoon tea as well as teaching a few human world recipes in return. She loves learning how to make Devildom food.
Lucifer- At first Nina and Lucifer did not like each other at all, from his cruel comments and punishments of Mammon; in which she very vocally objected to, and in her words “his attitude problem” and the way he treated her at first. But she slowly learnt that like her, behind the front he puts up is a soft heart. They understand each other a little better now and are often seen drinking tea together with the Prince but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t join in on Satan and Belphie’s ‘pranks’
Mammon-They had quite a weird relationship to start off with, Mammon being a typical tsundere and Nina not really knowing how to deal with him at first, but over the months of getting to know each other and opening up to one another they now have an unbreakable bond. They can still get on each other’s nerves at times, like Nina trying to stop Mammon with another one of his ‘get rich quick schemes’ but she just doesn’t want him to get into trouble or in even more debt.
Leviathan-At first Nina thought Levi hated her but she soon realised he was just socially awkward. At the beginning of their soon to be friendship he introduced her to TSL, she of course read all the books he gave her in a day and is now a huge fan, although not as big as Levi. They are often seen rewatching and marathoning the series as well as recommending each other some anime and manga which Levi’s always declares that they’re too ‘Normie’ for him but he secretly enjoys all her recommendations, especially Madoka Magica.
Satan- Don’t tell the brothers but Satan is Nina’s favourite brother. From both having a love of books, from fictional stories to history they almost immediately were drawn to each other. They are often seen together either reading, studying or discussing a topic they both found intriguing into the early hours of the morning and on occasion going on a ‘date’ to a cat cafe or to the museum to see a new exhibit...if Mammon doesn’t insert himself and basically third wheel.
Asmo- After many late night cram sessions and the stress that accompanies studying Nina has a great appreciation for skin care so automatically Asmo and Nina got along quite well, he often loves to braid her long hair for her before she goes to sleep. He often helps her with her sketches, modelling for her pose study (in which Mammon gets very sulky about) She also loves going shopping with him, Mammon and sometimes Solomon.
Beel-Beel and Nina often find each other in the kitchen in the middle of the night, her from staying up late and Beel well because he’s Beel. They help each other make the best late night snack (without waking Lucifer up of course) they have a great relationship, Beel normally helps out in the kitchen whenever Nina is making food cause he gets to taste test. She also tries to help both Beel and Belphie when they have nightmares.
Belphie-After the unfortunate events (Lesson 16👀) Nina just couldn’t come to hate him so she welcomed him with open arms and became some what of an outlet for him. They often spend their time together either in Nina’s room or in the planetarium, most of the time Belphie falling asleep. He also has played a part in helping Nina’s messed up sleeping schedule, increasing the amount of naps she has as well as finding the best places to nap at RAD. Lucifer thinks he’s a bad influence when it comes to her studies.
Solomon-Nina finds Solomon quite intriguing and funny. She often becomes the guinea pig (mostly voluntarily) of some of his spells and other magic he performs but only in return he teaches her some magic too. They go shopping together with Asmo and Mammon.
Simeon-How can anyone ever hate this man, was her initial thought when they met. They often attend coffee shops, mostly drinking tea together and Nina secretly trying to get info on the next instalment in TSL and giving feedback when asked. (She would never tell Levi, she thinks it’s quite hilarious that he hasn’t figured it out)
Luke-She first found Luke rather funny when they first met; I mean...chihuahua and patted him on the head, in which he protested. They soon bonded over sweets and food and they both give each other cooking lessons. It’s also now mandatory that Nina spends at least one evening every fortnight over at Purgatory Hall so they can cook and have dinner together.
