capturing goddess

princess diana was so beautiful wasn’t she, it’s just so sad. she emulated the cancer majesty with such delicacy. the sun is the king. but the moon symbolises the people’s princess, commoners, and guardianship. princess diana was the people’s princess. when you see the image of her running to hug her children with that smile, she was the royal cancer mother in motion a mirror through her 7th house sun and neptune in the 10th house, she captured the cancer goddess with such grace, an ideal with that neptune 10th house. on another note for people who are interested she also had pluto, uranus, and mars conjunct leo in the 8th house

Imagine being famous for being a “maiden goddess” of a massive lake. Your worshippers come to your lake and lavish you with gifts. Imagine one day meeting Loki and the two of you hit it off. The two of you grow quite close, Loki often visiting your lake, all the while keeping the relationship a secret. Imagine the two of you eventually growing intimate and just opting to keep the maiden title as a private joke but not telling your worshippers.
Eventually someone discovers you’re in a relationship with Loki and they question you, you and Loki laugh it off and perhaps you admit it’s been years since that was the truth. Or as the lover of the god of mischief, you keep it a secret.

“O Goddess, do you hate your servant for what he has done? These evil hounds forced my hand and here I am before you in utter audacity seeking your guidance and balance still.
                                 “Forgive me.”  – Hieronymus “Ptolemy” Ptolemaeus

A Meracydian slave forced into service for the Allagan Empire, Ptolemy was one of many who was ordered to capture the Meracydian Goddess and place her in captivity. For his sins, the man suffered greatly by the hands of fate.

So it’s funny, even in my “ideal AU” the Jedi order still falls and the Empire still rises. Not all the Jedi die but a lot of them do (so enough that they can’t just relocate and restart the Order).

Anakin + Obi Wan + Padme don’t die and after much hiding & traveling & adventuring they end up with a farm, the twins + Ahsoka and a handful of clones + Padme’s handmaidens (it’s a pretty big farm okay)

The Emperor knows where they are but leaves the alone because:

- He thinks Anakin + Obi Wan (+ Ahsoka) are exiling themselves for “failing” the Jedi Order
- He is a little nervous about attacking the place not because he thinks he’ll loose just… probably suffer a lot of damage and that isn’t good when you’ve just set up your Regime
- They can have the twins for their early years, he’ll come kidnap them later (hopefully after everyone else’s battle skills go a bit rusty)

He doesn’t think them much of a threat but keeps an eye on them just in case.

He is dead wrong.

Every single person on that farm is a part of the resistance (well, except the babies) and it is absolutely a front for the Resistance activities. The know they have eyes on them so they’re careful but
- The basement is MASSIVE (they’ve extended it) and filled with weapons and sparring space
- Just about every Jedi still alive has stayed there at some point. They just didn’t go outside (because eyes watching)
- Many important meetings have been held in the living room

And Palpatine is none-the-fucking-wiser

((And eventually the events of the original trilogy happen… just slightly different greater context))

Head-Canon Hades

This may not correspond exactly to myth but inspires my work.

I enjoy the telling of two star-crossed lovers, but I can’t shake the thought that Hades had a former life before Persephone.  That his capriciousness in the capture of the young goddess–by force instead of by heart, was spurned by a desire to regain a piece of himself that died with the nymph Leuce.  Obviously he wanted to avoid going through Demeter, but I think this coupled with desperation and a real need for a queen made him impatient.

As a result of his haste and indiscretion–traits not congruent with his usual prudence, Hades brought shame on himself in the eyes of the other gods. Though bound in marriage, he can only hope to see his wife for part of each year. 

Interesting that as a king he is also a judge; so he must understand when his shortcomings earn him disrepute and forfeiture.

Janeweek Day 6: Post-Sburb


The Statue of Revered Goddess of Strength and Health,

The Maid of Life,

Jane Crocker.

so post-sburb right? im talking about yeaaaaaaaaars post sburb, religion and myth is formed around our beloved players. Temples and statues are built to worship them. painting, murals, and vases are made to capture the gods and goddess greatness. Songs, poem and literature written and told to their descendants that tells the epic journey of world’s creation. Guess who’s been setting the art trend at that time? (its rose. and dave; much to jane’s dismay).

So, this Jane’s statue is built to be put in Temple of Life. It is made with mysterious material and posses healing attribute to those near them, after Jane put her Grace into it (because she likes the artist who made that very much, you see. a very spirited prospitian). Hundreds of years later, Temple of Life doubles as hospitals. A new magical constructs are invented to spread the healing properties of the statue throughout the building and around them.

Fen'Harel and the Tree

“In the story, Fen'Harel was captured by the hunting goddess, Andruil. He had angered her by hunting the halla without her blessing, and she tied him to a tree and declared that he would have to serve in her bed for a year and a day to pay her back. But as she made camp that night, the dark god Anaris found them, and Anaris swore that he would kill Fen'Harel for crimes against the Forgotten Ones. Andruil and Anaris decided that they would duel for the right to claim Fen'Harel. He called out to Anaris during the fight and told him of a flaw in Andruil’s armor just above the hip, and Anaris stabbed Andruil in the side, and she fell. Then Fen'Harel told Anaris that he owed the Dread Wolf for the victory and ought to get his freedom. Anaris was so affronted by Fen'Harel’s audacity that he turned and shouted insults at the prisoner, and so he did not see Andruil, injured but alive, rise behind him and attack with her great bow. Anaris fell with a golden arrow in his back, badly injured, and while both gods slumbered to heal their wounds, Fen'Harel chewed through his ropes and escaped.”

Male slave surrendering his body & soul the the Priestesses of the Goddess who captured him!First he will serve Them all as a slave.Then he will be sacrificed to the Goddess,& feasting on his flesh will be Their way of paying homage to Her!

the moon is in a holding cell;
grasped between the bones of my
failing ribcage. she is so cold,
gods, she is so cold.
i do not remember the last time i
felt sun on my face. there is only this;
silence, cold, and the frozen moon
in my black hole chest.
something has taken my warmth
and replaced it with a starless sky.

—  This story becomes approximately 50% more ridiculous when you remember what Solas is like, and also that Felassan is one of his best friends and is just sharing embarrassing deets about his bro
