I'm so glad you pointed that out! I am not even devoted to any gods really but absolutely adore greek mythology and hades has always had a special place in my hear bc he is literally seen as the worst by anyone but I see him as so great for getting screwed over by the other gods but still doing his job and not raising hell like i sometimes think he should lol
Right!?!?! I hated the way Haides was treated in movies even before i knew what a Hellenic Polytheist was! Its not even just about being disrespectful to the gods, its also flat out lazy and unoriginal storytelling. Its sooooo obvious these are all just Christian stories and themes just using the faces of the Greek gods. And the really sad part is that the ACTUAL Greek stories and thr true nature of the gods are WAYY more interesting from the standpoint of a writer. Its the first reason I got into Greek Mythology as a kid. I found the myths so unique and so smart. The gods were so interesting and fully realized. And they seemed more real than anything bc they weren’t all good or all bad. Like theres a reason that even if the mass population doesn’t believe in the gods, they still tell their stories.
Lol sorry for the rant and ramble. Im very passionate about this and once i start its hard for me to stop! XD
@ Mod Hades, if it helps I have the absolute worst laugh ever, it sounds like a really squeaky door and Marge Simpson, I also have this really bad loud snort laugh (if I snort laugh everyone notices and tries to make me laugh harder than they laugh and it results in me breathlessly snort laughing and I can't)
