Greek-legend

I think I’ve fallen into a new level of hell… and it has a name… Patrochilles.

I’m so emotional that even the MENTION of Troy, or Achilles, or anything to do with Greece, right now is going to make me burst into fits of screaming tears. Just let me bury myself in pain… I don’t need my heart anymore…

ART HISTORY MEME > [2/8] mythology

Borrowing stylistic influences not only from the earlier Pre-Raphaelites but also from his contemporaries, the Impressionists, John William Waterhouse’s artworks were known for their depictions of women from both ancient Greek mythology and Arthurian legend.

Tristram and Isolde (1916), The Household Gods (1880), The Siren, Undine (1872), Ariadne (1898), Hylas and the Nymphs (1896), The Awakening of Adonis (1899), A Mermaid (1901), Pandora (1898), Psyche entering Cupid’s Garden (1903), Nymphs Finding the Head of Orpheus (1900), Boreas (1903)

Stannis Baratheon = Agamemnon

After this recent game of thrones episode my greek tragedy fangirl side of mine was intrigued I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between these two men both were stalled from war by weather agamemnon stalled by no wind for his ships to take sail to Troy and Stannis by the blizzard both men had oracles or mystics tell them sacrificing their own daughter (Iphigenia and shireen) their deaths would be the key to appease a god and continue the war and both men very publicly sacrificed their daughters to the horror of their own wives 

I hope this means only one thing that Selyse is Clytemnestra and Davos is Aegisthus who together plotted after the war was finished to fuck Agamemnon up for what he did to Iphigenia and they murdered him while he was in the bathtub and killed all the men who helped and also his killed new mistress/war prize Cassandra of troy who could see the future and her death coming but was cursed so no one would believe her predictions 

it is also to be noted that Agamemnon pissed off Artemis the goddess of the hunt whose was symbolically linked to the stag or deer who in turn stalled the winds so his ships couldn’t sail 

my powers have come to me now: a persephone fanmix

Pluto was named by Venetia Burney, an 11-year-old from England, while she was having breakfast with her grandpa, who was reading about the new planet and wondered what it would be called. Since she’d read about Greek and Roman legends, she said ‘why not call it Pluto?’ So Grandpa suggested it to an astronomer at Oxford University, and the rest is history. Source Source 2
