30 Days of Mythical Tricksters  → Day 27: Dionysus

“Dionysus was the god of the most blessed ecstasy and the most enraptured love. But he was also the persecuted god, the suffering and dying god, and all whom he loved, all who attended him, had to share his tragic fate.”  — Walter F. Otto

Okay but hear me out
I’m pretty sure that the last 8 episodes will include lots of angsty stuff like

We still don’t know Kobayashi’s entire past, but he will most likely remember it at some point and we don’t know how he will react
20 Faces will definitely make his turn sooner or later and assuming that the second half of Trickster keeps having these parallels to the first half, he could possibly try to manipulate Kobayashi like he did with Hanasaki
Also I don’t think Hanasaki has entirely recovered yet so what if he gets his weird stress pain thingy again

All in all they might cry at some point

Thank you for your attention

30 Days of Mythical Tricksters  → Day 18: Kitsune

The red fox crosses the ice
intent on none of my business.
It’s winter and slim pickings.

I stand in the bushy cemetery,
pretending to watch birds,
but really watching the fox
who could care less.
She pauses on the sheer glare
of the pond. She knows I’m there,
sniffs me in the wind at her shoulder.
If I had a gun or dog
or a raw heart, she’d smell it.
She didn’t get this smart for nothing.

She’s a lean vixen: I can see
the ribs, the sly
trickster’s eyes, filled with longing
and desperation, the skinny
feet, adept at lies.

Why encourage the notion
of virtuous poverty?

It’s only an excuse
for zero charity.
Hunger corrupts, and absolute hunger
corrupts absolutely,
or almost. Of course there are mothers,
squeezing their breasts
dry, pawning their bodies,
shedding teeth for their children,
or that’s our fond belief.
But remember - Hansel
and Gretel were dumped in the forest
because their parents were starving.
Sauve qui peut. To survive
we’d all turn thief

and rascal, or so says the fox,
with her coat of an elegant scoundrel,
her white knife of a smile,
who knows just where she’s going:

to steal something
that doesn’t belong to her -
some chicken, or one more chance,
or other life.”

Margaret Atwood
