I’d rather have a Hades in my life than a Zeus. There’s something far more appealing in a man who is as dark as the night sky but loyal, as opposed to a man who is brighter than the sun but has a dishonest heart.

All the Greek gods either ace or pan. And not even regular ace or pan, but extreme. Like ace, will not tolerate any love or affection what so ever, even as friends, and pan, attracted to literally everything. Like you see that goat? Zeus fucked that goat. And that rock over there? He probably fucked it too.

Guys stop rebloging this it’s not even a good post why are you like this. @biggest-gaudiest-patronuses i blame you

Hades: I AM HADES

Hades: LORD OR THE UNDERWORLD

Hades: RULER OF THE DEAD

Hades: FEAR ME

Hades: THOU SHALL BOW BEFORE THY LEADER

Hades: … how was that?

Hades: I sounded pretty tough right?

Persephone: *peers over phone as she strokes a sleeping Cebrus*

Persephone: I nearly pissed myself. That was amazing. Top notch.

Hades: *fist bumps the air before sitting in his fluffy pink chair*

Hades: nailed it.

Part 2 of Black Gods and Goddesses [Greek]

There’s probably going to be Part 3 and I may edit this one. I’m a little unsure of Hermes. I think Glover would be a good Pan, God of Wildnerness and Fertility 🤔 You can find Part 1 on my Dashboard or under the tag #blackgodsandgoddesses

Greek Myth:         Goddesses  - Artemis ☾

Artemis was one of the most widely venerated of the Ancient Greek deities. Her roman equivalent is Diana. Homer refers to her as Artemis Agrotera, Potnia Theron: “Artemis of the wildland, Mistress of Animals”. In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo.

Like full offence but wtf did we do to deserve anything and everything that Rick Riordan ever wrote???

Not only does it encourage kids to learn about mythologies and shit and other cultures (which children in specifically America definitely need more of) The amount of representation in his books is crazy and amazing. I mean he’s got gays, mental illness, disabilities, gender fluid characters, and a whole host of healthy platonic and romantic relationships that as a kid reading fantasy books I didn’t see a lot of. 

I mean every romance mainsub-plot that was in a fantasy YA novel was like “girl meets boy, girl hates boy, boy is hot, boy doesn’t respect girls boundaries, then girl falls for boy” it was creepy and was waaay too normal. Then Rick comes in with healthy relationships and a variety of not only romantic but also platonic ones. it’s amazing. 

That’s not even me starting on the character diversity. IT’S FANTASTIC. Oh my gods I could go on and on about it, but the whole deal with Nico and his coming out and the inner turmoil he faced, it was so real and I related with it way too much and it helped me get through shit in my life. 

TD;LR Rick Riordan is amazing and anything and everything he’s written should be read and loved because it’s amazing. Thanks for coming to my TEDtalk
