greek hall

After being inspired by Greek mythology Fred and George once placed a golden apple with the note “for the fairest” on a pedestal in the middle of the great hall. The apple almost caused an all out war among the female population of the school until it mysteriously disappeared one night.

There’s nothing like being cooped up indoors for 5 months to make you wish you could put life on hold and buy a plane ticket to anywhere. Luckily, one of the best (and easiest) ways to fill the void is with books that take you miles and miles away.

The Greek Hall of Fame: Apollo’s kids. Of course after the mortal Apollo, I had to draw his boys. I’ve been waiting too long to draw my beloved Will, but after reading Trials of Apollo, Austin was just so lovely? :((( Can we discuss the fact that Apollo conceived a child with a guy? HAHAHHA And that he loves his kids so much he kisses them and calls them beautiful (because they are)? Apollo kids should be protected at all cost. They are so precious. <3

Modern Gods:

~Hades~

The eldest of the six children of Cronus and Rhea, Hades drew the smallest reed out of his brothers leaving him the reigning Lord of the Underworld. Hades due to western concept of the devil is viewed as vindictive, spiteful, and evil. When as a matter of fact he was very just, and even had the best interest of the dead in his mind. His roman name is Pluto and in his roman form he took on the role of god of wealth as well as Lord of the dead. It is also to be noted he is not the god of death only the ruler of the Underworld where the dead reside.

Stiles huffs, certain he’s going to be late. It’s not his fault that he forgot today was the day his Art History class was supposed to meet up at the museum downtown instead of in the classroom. He barely had enough time to catch the bus from campus, and now he’s running up the steps, ignoring the angry stare from a docent. He checks the syllabus; right, meeting in the Hall of Greek and Roman Art. Stiles’ sneakers skid on the marble floor.

The exhibit is empty. What?

Stiles looks around and nearly runs straight into a broad, muscled chest. He looks up into the scowl an upperclassman he kind of recognizes from their first class last week. “Hey,” Stiles says. “Um, are you here for AH 231?” 

“Yeah,” the guy says, looking around the otherwise empty exhibit. Stiles realizes belatedly he’s still standing right in the guys space— wow, his eyes are this really intense color of green and gray and gold—

Right. Stiles backs up hastily. “Sorry about that,” he says, adding “I’m Stiles.”

“Derek,” the guy says, holding out his hand, practically looking like one of the art installations himself. 

Stiles grins and says, “I’d shake your hand but there’s a sign that says not to touch the masterpieces.”

I’m so excited to do this since I am doing The Greek Hall of Fame so most of the characters would be having a revamped look! It’s not like I am obsessed with these four demigods or anything but three times the charm, eh? (Nico and Leo are the best just letting that out) I personally am very contended with the 2016 ones as I think I have found a style I am comfortable with. :D
