I rly love ur medusa, they r rly cute and I would love to see more of them!!

OMG, i’ve planned sooo much with their stories?? Just…all of three of these kids have shitty as hell lives and they learn to be happy again through each other’s support…and im sO EMOTIONAL FOR THESE KIDS SNKVFKKVDJ

Medusa who lived on the run for almost a century finally gets a warm, safe home to call her own; 

Perseus who grew up in an ivory tower with only the occasional assassins as company slowly learns trust and unconditional love;

and Andromeda who was forced to single-handedly shoulder her country’s safety now has a girlfriend someone fighting by her side….

Just a note about Monika that I found kinda interesting, her ‘catchphrase’, as Yuri and Natsuki put it, is “Okay, everyone.” which in Japanese (romanised) would be “OK, mina!” which is an anagram of Monika.

anonymous asked:

diana w/ a baby? she was so excited to see one and she never got to hold one it was so Sad

I KNOW, @ DC GIVE DIANA A BABY YOU MONSTERS

  • Diana canonically loves children and is Good With Kids, but I can’t find many comics where she gets to interact with a baby tbh? Which is heartbreaking because babies would love her.
  • Part of the whole demigod thing is that she can literally stay still for hours without her limbs falling asleep, which is an ability she can and will use any time a baby or small child falls asleep on her. 
  • I feel like babies can kinda tell??? what kind of person you are??? It’s like puppies, they have a sixth sense for who is a Safe Person™ and who isn’t. Babies and puppies both love Diana.
  • Her hair is the perfect length for grabbing in little fists, and she’s often wearing some very shiny headgear, so babies get distracted by her very, very easily.
  • It becomes a running joke among the Justice League that one of Diana’s lesser known powers is the ability to instantly calm crying infants. If a crying baby is handed to Diana, they will without fail quiet down in a matter of seconds.
  • 100% guilty of Baby Talk, but only in Ancient Greek??? She gets so overwhelmed by the cuteness that she reverts back to her native language. 
  • She also knows a lot of really cool Themysciran lullabies (also in Greek) which have babies and nearby adults alike totally captivated on the rare occasion that she sings.
  • Extremely protective of any small child that comes within fifty feet of her. This goes double for infants who aren’t yet capable of defending themselves. No, Wally, you can’t have a turn with the baby, Diana doesn’t trust you not to break it. 

Annie Smith Peck (1850-1935) was in many ways a trailblazer for women and their ability to have the same opportunities and adventures as men. She was one of the first female mountaineers, and sparked the discussion about what women can and should do in society.

She studied at the University of Michigan very soon after the institution first opened its doors to female students, and gained a degree in Greek and Classical Languages; she also spoke French, Spanish, and Portuguese. In addition to mountaineering, she studied and taught archaeology. She was president of the Joan of Arc Suffrage League, and placed a “Women’s Vote” banner on the top of Coropuna peak, which she climbed at the age of 65.

Guys GUYS GUYS, a list of fascinating (but probably useless) facts: 

Mary Wollstonecraft is the mother of Mary Shelley

Jane Austen and Napoleon lived at the same period

Oscar Wilde was still alive when Agatha Christie was born

Jules Verne was born before and died after Oscar Wilde (whose grave is in Paris btw)

Agatha Christie could have been a professional pianist but was too shy (also, she accepted the presidency of a club on the condition that she would never have to do a speech)

Madame du Chatelet could read in german/french/english/latin/greek at 12yo (also, she dressed as a man to take part in discussion at the litterary salons in France) and she was the first to translate Newton in french (and was the first woman to be published by the french Academy of Science) 

Marc-Anthony killed himself because of fake news

At like, 20yo, Cleopatra was raising an army to take back Egypt

Sappho was referred to as ‘The Poetess’ and Homer as ‘The Poet’ (and Shakespeare’s ‘The Bard’

George Orwell resigned from the Imperial Police and live the life of a poor when he realized how oppressed the Burmese were

Tolkien and Lewis both hated technology and neither knew how to drive

Agatha Christie was the first (British) woman to surf standing up 

Homosexuality was decriminalized in France in 1791 (tho you could still be arrested for indecency etc and there was lots of discrimination)

Les Amis Demigods AU (4/?): Feuilly - Child of Hephaestus

Hephaestus is the Olympian god of fire and metal as well as that of the craftsmen, artisans, sculpturs and blacksmiths. He is the son of Zeus and Hera but was rejected by his mother and thrown down to earth although he later regained his place alongside the gods. Almost every piece of metalworking with divine powers in greek mythology is said to have been made by Hephaestus in his forge on Mount Olympus including Hermes’ winged helmet, Helios’ chariot and Eros’ bow and arrows.

The lesser-known day jobs of the Twelve Olympian gods
  • Besides their better known responsibilities (eg Aphrodite as the goddess of love), here are the slightly more obscure roles of the main gods of the Greek pantheon.
  • Aphrodite: Pleasure, procreation
  • Apollo: Plague and disease, healing
  • Ares: Masculine valour, civil order
  • Artemis: Childbirth, protecting girls below the age of marriage
  • Athena: Pottery, heroism, mathematics, good advice
  • Demeter: Bread, the codes of morality, the cycle of life and death
  • Dionysus: Vegetation, ritual madness (bakkheia), religious euphoria
  • Hephaestus: Sculpture, masonry, fire
  • Hera: Women, marriage
  • Hermes: Thieves, trade, diplomatic relations, farm animal husbandry, astrology, astronomy, travel
  • Poseidon: Drought, horses
  • Zeus: Law and order, weather

Annabeth Chase is totally that overachiever (we all know one of those) like whenever she’s brought up a demigod always has something new to say about her such as,

 “Yea, she came to Camp when she was only seven.” 

“I heard she was part of two major prophecies.”

 “Her cousin is also a demigod, but not a Greek or Roman one.”

“She defeated Archane all by herself.”

“…and she managed to do all that and still graduate high school and college.”
