greek theme

And if there were only some way of contriving that a state or an army should be made up of lovers and their beloved, they would be the very best governors of their own city, abstaining from all dishonour, and emulating one another in honour; and when fighting at each other’s side, although a mere handful, they would overcome the world. For what lover would not choose rather to be seen by all mankind than by his beloved, either when abandoning his post or throwing away his arms? He would be ready to die a thousand deaths rather than endure this. Or who would desert his beloved or fail him in the hour of danger? (Plato, Symposium)

[JalecMonth - Week Two: Parabatai Bond]

Ξέρετε, ενα απο τα πιο όμορφα συναισθήματα ειναι να εχεις τον ανθρωπο σου ξαπλωμένο στην αγκαλιά σου και να τον κοιτάς για ωρες , να χάνεσαι στο πρόσωπο και τα ματια του.Να γεμίζεις τοσο μεσα σου που να λες ,δεν μου λείπει κατι αυτη τη στιγμη.Ολοι έχουμε ανάγκη απο αυτο το συναίσθημα ,όλοι στο τελος της μέρας θελουμε να νιώσουμε την αγαπη που κρύβει μια αγκαλια.

Now THAT‘S what I‘m talkin‘ about!

I’m not even joking, I seriously think that this is the sort of design they should have gone for in Marth’s remakes.

I mean, okay, it’s silly but Shadow Dragon and New Mystery are such dull-looking games that I think a bit of early 90′s goofiness would have at least made them more visually interesting.

Besides, given the ancient Greek/Roman theme that the original Fire Emblem had going on in terms of its world and its design (as we can see in the names of places and legendary weapons) as opposed to the French mythology in the Elibe games, the Nordic influences in the Jugdral saga, or the Arthurian undertones in Path of Radiance, I actually think that going with this sort of look with the old school tunic and circlet and what have you might’ve made Akaneia stand out just a bit more.

Oreste et Les Furies - Jacques François Ferdinand Lairesse. Français. 1850-1929.

The Erinyes - in English, the Furies - were some seriously fearsome creatures. They were conceived when Uranus’ spilled blood hit

Gaia’s body, and were, therefore, older than any of the Olympian Gods. “These Erinnyes are crones with snakes for hair, dogs’ heads, coal-black bodies, bats’ wings, and bloodshot eyes. In their hands, they carry brass-studded scourges and their victims die in torment.” It isn’t a great idea to mention their names in conversation, so instead you should call them the Eumenides, or the Kindly Ones.

. There are three:

  • Tisiphone, the Avenger
  • Megara, the Jealous
  • Alecto, the Unresting

Their purpose was to torment sinners, which they did on Earth as well is in Tartarus. The sight of one could cause insanity, and they often drove offenders to suicide. Originally they punished only offenders of patricide, matricide, or breakers of oaths, but after a while, they punished any sins. They lived in Erebus (Darkness) but traveled the Earth constantly in search of transgressors. 

Girl Interested in Greek Mythology (Writing Prompts)

28-mai said to alloftheprompts: Got it - I mean I’ve got the main character, which is a teenager girl who loves the Greek Mythology and always dreams about being wise like Athena, courageous like Artemis, beautiful like Aphrodite, etc. but she has a miserable life. The end has to be tragic - I hate the happy endings, but it needs to have up to 30 chapters, so, can you help me now with some prompts, pleaase? :o3

  • The gods pity the girl and offer her the option of undergoing several tests, but she fails the final one.
  • The girl succeeds, but the success means having to leave everything she ever knew.
  • The girl succeeds but the means her death.
  • One of the tasks she is given is something she simply cannot do for personal reasons.
  • The gods pity her, but in the end only turn her into something after her death to mourn/commemorate her.
  • The goddesses are offended by her even thinking that she could be equal to the in anything and punish her.
  • She reaches a point where she believes she could be equal to one or more of the goddesses and challenges her, and is punished.

Also, I’d suggest that for an interesting story that could take 30 chapters, the character shouldn’t just dream but actively try to achieve those dreams, even if her efforts end up being futile.

Also: The worship of Greek gods still exists today, so you may want to research Hellenism and Neopaganism. 

I hope this helps :)

β👊😈Beta Ghoul😈👊β

I’ve dubbed Old Water/New Aether “Beta Ghoul.” 

Omega will always be Omega, regardless of whether or not he’s coming back (crossing my fingers on that one). 

But a lot of people think it doesn’t make sense to have “Alpha” without “Omega.” 

So in keeping with the Greek alphabet theme, and using a bit of a Water pun (Betta fish 👀), I present to you: Beta Ghoul 💙
