Diamond Headshots - The Greek Gods and Goddesses as Diamonds!

These six are the old diamonds based in the fact that the were the only six born directly of the Titans thus making them the oldest deities once the Titans were defeated. The other gods will be various Quartz!

Yellow Diamond - Zeus
Blue Diamond - Poseidon
Black Diamond - Hades
Green Diamond - Demeter
White Diamond - Hera
Chocolate Diamond - Hestia

That’s all for now, I’ll draw more and post the rest later on! (Also Demeters design is my favorite so far.)

Greek Mythology:    Hades & Persephone

So I grabbed my king and ran away
to a land of death,
where I reigned and people whispered
that I’d been dragged.
I’ll tell you I’ve changed. I’ll tell you,
the red on my lips isn’t wine.
I hope you’ve heard of horns,
but that isn’t half of it. Out of an entire kingdom
he kneels only to me,
calls me Queen, calls me Mercy.                                                                                                    -Daniella Michalleni, “Persephone Speaks”

  • Can we appreciate the fact Hades offered Nico a room at his palace in the Underworld in case his son dies in battle, because he doesn’t want Nico to feel like he’s got nobody and that he’s got his Dad no matter what? That’s some special treatment there. Nico doesn’t even need to be judged or whatever to be placed in Elysium or any fields in the Underworld–he’ll go straight to the palace.
  • Can we appreciate the fact that Hades’ gift to Nico’s birthday was a French zombie–who was a professional racer–to be his son’s chauffeur that Nico can summon anytime and anywhere to take him literally any destination in the world?
  • Can we appreciate the fact that Hades protected and saved Nico (and Bianca) when Zeus wanted to kill his Italian children, because Zeus didn’t want any child of Hades to be the child of the prophecy (and lost his beloved Maria di Angelo in the process)?
  • Can we appreciate the fact that Hades wanted Nico to be an exception from all his children in the past, and wants Nico to be genuinely happy despite fate’s cruelty to any child of the Underworld?
  • Can we just appreciate this one last fact that Hades loves Nico so much and obviously his favourite child because he knows his son suffered the most than any demigod simply because Nico is his father’s son?

  • Chiron:Of course, Lord Hades. I'm sure you're here of concerning your son, Nico. He's been good but he still has~
  • Hades:Oh, uh, actually I'm here because there's a Ponyta in your Big House.
  • Chiron:What?
  • Hades:Honestly, the Underworld only holds those stupid Zubats
  • Hades:Nico di Angelo! What did I say about bringing the dead back?!
  • Nico:what are you talking about? I haven't brought anything back
  • Hades *pulls up MCRX video tweet*:I know you are the one responsible for this!
  • Nico *crosses band bracelet covered arms and flips long side right bangs*:No you don't! You don't know anything about me, dad!
  • Hades:Dear gods it's started...
