Hi I don't know who Hestia is but would you please tell me about her?
LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT MY HOME GIRL HESTIA.
Meet my gal.(photo cred: http://www.theoi.com/Ouranios/Hestia.html ) Hestia is Zeus’s oldest sister. See, Cronus didn’t give a shit about his kids’ gender and ate em all to protect himself. So Hestia got stuck at the bottom of Cronus’s stomach, with all her brothers and sisters on top of her. She didn’t complain once.
Because Zeus has to rescue his siblings in order, Hestia got rescued last. She still didn’t complain.
After the Titan-Olympian War, Hestia became goddess of the Hearth. At the time, it meant fireplaces and also home, because the fireplace was the central part of the Grecian home.
This quiet-ass bitch doesnt show up again until Zeus’s like 18th kid, Dionysus, comes to Olympus looking to join his immortal fam. Problem is: there ain’t enough seats. So, my home girl Hestia just straight up gives her nephew her seat and is like “yeah my throne’s the fireplace anyway, so i’ll just sit on the floor in front of it it’s chill”
Did i mention she’s one of only three vestigial (non-sex havin) goddesses in the entire Greek Parthenon? Yeah. She is.
She’s literally the chillest Greek deity ever.
There’s really only one myth about her, and it’s that she screamed so loud she scared the shit out of an attempted rapist because she heard a donkey bray.
She never turned anyone into animals, no curses. Just chillin by the fireplace, fendin off fuckboys and being ace/aro as fuck.
TL;DR: Hestia is super duper chill, probably ace/aro, selfless, and just really wants to tend her fire alone thanks.
