book! romans

The whole “maiden, mother, crone” triple goddess archetype thing can be really overapplied in neopagan circles sometimes. I just saw someone refer to Minerva as “the Crone figure of the original Capitoline triad” which, given Juno’s associations with childbearing and marriage, only works if you make Jupiter the maiden.

If this is where you wanna go I’m totally into hearing this interpretation, but given context I’m forced to assume this was an accident.

I headcanon Logan to secretly read romance novels. Really old ones. I don't know why.

He and roman have a book club. Roman is the only one that knows about the romance novels, and he recommends new ones to Lo

I wish someone would’ve just sat me down, five years ago, ten years ago even, and told me how much growing up would feel like digging my soul out of my body by teaspoons and burying it.

You make me feel like I’m worth something. But I don’t want that. I don’t want to only be able to feel okay when I’m with you. I want to be happy by myself, before I’m happy with you.

Publius Ovidius Naso, known as Ovid in the English-speaking world, was a Roman poet who lived during the reign of Augustus.  He was a contemporary of the older Virgil and Horace, with whom he is often ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature.  Ovid enjoyed enormous popularity, but, in one of the mysteries of literary history, was sent by Augustus into exile in a remote province on the Black Sea, where he remained until his death. Ovid himself attributes his exile to “carmen et error,” “a poem and a mistake,” but his discretion in discussing the causes has resulted in much speculation among scholars.

Ovid is today best known for the Metamorphoses, a 15-book continuous mythological narrative written in the meter of epic which is how we know much of Roman mythology, and for works in elegiac couplets such as Ars Amatoria (“The Art of Love”) and Fasti.  His poetry was much imitated during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and greatly influenced Western art and literature.
