Mitolojik kahramanlara ilgisi olan Guerin’in resimdeki ilhamı Morpheus ve Iris. Mitolojide rüyaların tanrısı olarak geçen Morpheus’un kendinden geçmiş hali ve ona hayranlıkla bakan gökkuşağı tanrısı, aynı zamanda mesaj elçisi güzel İris. Guerin’i 17 Mart’ta anlatmıştım, hatırlamak isterseniz linki http://goo.gl/M0Yus .

First of all I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! "For all your Greek Mythology needs ! " is an accurate representation. Can I request a Hermes since he is my fav greek god. Lastly, do you have any crack ships/OTPs in greek myths ? XD

Thank you so much! Here is your Hermes 

As for OTPs/Crack Ships

  • Apollo + Hyacinthus
  • Eros + Psyche
  • Morpheus + Iris
  • Thanatos + Medusa
  • Hypnos + Thanatos
  • Hades + Hera (young love)
  • Hephaestus + Happiness
  • Achilles + Patroclus (I know, I know)
  • Dionysus + Ampelos (c’mon, it’s cute)
  • Persephone + Hermes (before Hades)
  • Eros + Thanatos (love n’ death trope)
  • Zeus + his hand
  • Ganymede + Zeus

And the generic ones like Hades n’ Persephone - the more I think about it the more I realize I don’t have that many. I have a lot of pairings that I think would happen as a ‘friends with benefits’ way but not romantic ie) Eros + Hermes. I also like to picture the Gods tucking their mortal lovers into bed and just being protective of them but we all know how that relationship usually goes.. I might reblog this later/add on after thinking about it more, thanks again for the compliment!
