Again, I am in awe at how you wrote this one. It is hauntingly beautiful - the imagery and the cultural allusions to war in the dream so vivid. Like the other commenter, I fail to see why this doesn't have more reviews!
I adore your characterizations for both Greece and Japan. Your writing really brings out the depth of their characters.

I cannot figure out why this story has no more reviews than one, because it was simply amazing.
There were handfuls upon handfuls of imagery embedded in the words; the dream sequence was amazing, and very dreamlike to boot. This can be a hard feat to manage, as I have tried. The animals being used to personify beings, and also keeping with Japanese lore, was a superb way to capture the story. The odd languages used throughout the story was appealing to me, maybe annoying to others, but I love the use of other languages.
Heracles and Kiku were very much in character. I find it increasingly hard to find an IC fanfic of Giripan, but you have captured it. Neither Heracles nor Kiku were flambouyant about their relationship, which, I believe, is exactly how they would act.
All in all, a very good story. Keep up the good work.

I really, really, liked the imagery you used for Kiku's dream here. :) I had fun guessing which animals represented which countries (yay, I got them right!), and the indirect way they fought him was definitely cool to read, and I could vividly picture everything going on, almost like a sort of movie in my head.
It's also really sweet how Greece comforted him, being calm and affectionate enough without being too over-the-top about anything. (Maybe that's why we all love him, eh.) He's just a very calming sort of person, and the song really fits well, too
Keep up the great work!
