She wasn’t enamored with him. Not like the other women (who really only ever expressed interest in him because he had not done so to them.) At first, she hadn’t seen any b e a u t y in her cold-blooded captor or his dark kingdom - the Queen Persephone was dangerously smart in a way only King Hades seemed to notice. They are so s t r a n g e, those two. He is what dies and she is what grows. And yet, they are bound deeper than our spirits are to our bones. He loves her with such intensity that it is blinding. This is King Hades - eldest child of of Cronus and Rhea. The first to be unwanted. He is strength without brutishness. But before Persephone, before his Queen, he is debased. For her alone, King Hades is w e a k.

Anon Requested - “Apollo and Dionysus or Hades and Persephone?”

THE HEART OF THE MAZE: 1/6

Bagginshield: Theseus and the Minotaur AU. My second entry to the 2015 Hobbit Big Bang! 

What is the great beast that lives in the labyrinth beneath King Thror’s palace? Some say it is a serpent, drawn from the depths of the oceans; others that he is a God trapped in the form of some monster from another age. All the people of Crete know is the guilt that they carry for every victim sent into Smaug’s dark tunnels, the screams of both man and beast echoing through the very stone of the island. Bilbo, sent as a tribute, one more sacrifice for Thror’s greatest regret, doesn’t even know this, but he’s determined to find out, and to find a way to save them all.

when asked about their love lives, the women of greek mythology responded thus //

this is by far my most popular poem and i realized i never posted anything more than the initial run. it grew into a bit of a beast, so here’s the edited rest of it.

JUMPS UP AND DOWN WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE MYTH FROM YOUR FAVORITE PANTHEON???

I think I may be the only Egyptian Mythology ‘fan’ I know but I always enjoyed the myth of the weighing of peoples’ hearts against the feather of truth. Also the fact that if you failed this test, you got thrown to the hippodilion. Not that actual name, but that’s what he was - a hippodilion.

Anubis is judging you. Literally.

Hippodilion sits next to Thoth like a puppy. Thoth is undoubtedly posting a snapchat of this.

Actually, aside from this crucial moment where the deceased’s soul faced judgment, there were apparently many other trials and obstacles that had to be navigated in the afterlife, to the point where most Egyptians had a sort of book lying around with instructions in it. This is commonly known as the Book of the Dead. I have a copy. It’s really amusing to read about what to do should you encounter a snake in the road. In the afterlife.

Egyptians never really had it easy. “Here I am enjoying eternal paradise, everything is fine and SNAKE! OH MY GOD SNAKE! Where’s the book? Where’s the book? Find the page on snake. Where is the page on snake WHY IS THIS HAPPENING”

mirthfulmeg asked:

Loki ;) Mythology ask...

LOKI:What is the best trick you’ve ever pulled on someone?

Gosh, I’m terrible at pranks or tricks. I either can’t keep a straight face or, more often, just feel like it’s all too mean spirited (Spoilers: I’m a big softie, irl, if the sloth gifs and obsession with food didn’t tip you off).

Racking my brain, trying to answer this, the first thing that sprang to mind was the time I scared the pants off of you, mirthfulmeg, after we watched the Doctor Who episodes “Silence in the Library” and “Forest of the Dead”. 

No spoilers here for the unintiated, but suffice to say we had turned off all the lights and were standing at the foot of the stairs which led up to our respective bedrooms, when I called out from behind her:

“HEY! Who turned out the lights?” 

I’ve never seen a woman run so fast up the stairs while simultaneously cussing me out.

Bravo, Madame.

Yes ~ the reason I only have one, best friend.

I convinced them it was a spirit/dress-up day for school when it wasn’t.

No, I would feel too guilty although I threaten to steal people’s dogs all the time. 

Sorry I took so long to answer this! Thank you for asking! 💜

elf-stuck-on-earth asked:

Persephone and Hades, if you do not mind.

Hey, it’s my mythological otp! Thanks Erin :)

Aphrodite: what you find attractive in a person

I really like people who can make me laugh, and who are good at/passionate about something (they really devote themselves to whatever it is they enjoy doing–like me with my acting). 

Hades: do you believe in life after death?

Kind of…I think that after you die, your consciousness becomes part of the fabric of the universe, in a way.

Send me a God

klainelover1221 asked:

Aphrodite, Apollo, and Hades?

Aphrodite: what you find attractive in a person

On a strictly physical level, I have to say that beautiful eyes go a long way 

On a more general level, I am widely attracted by someone’s passion

I did Apollo ;)

Hades: do you believe in life after death?

Depends on my mood

Being agnostic is hard on that subject

i just don’t know if I do, to be honest, but some days I want to ?

anonymous asked:

Freya

Have you ever been in love?
I wouldn’t say love, i’ve had my heart broken but i don’t think i actually loved them… idk maybe but love is weird and who knows, maybe i’ll learn in the future (i’ve loved people in other ways though, like super-friends)

ask-2p-fem-america-ally asked:

Alexandra smiles as she watches the women of her temple sing to their great goddess, Artemis, humming softly along as she polishes her shield from the temple steps. It was the night of the hunt and full moon, a great joy to her sisters, as they prepared to hunt and feast on the animal their goddess would reward them. She froze when she heard the large wolves they tamed growl and bark from not far off, a sign of an intruder.

Byzas was following his instinct. When one was an oracle of Apollo, that was generally a good piece of advice. However, he noticed that today it was not. This gut feeling had lead him into what appeared to be a large den wolves.  “Uh, Hello there..” he said neroucoly waving his hand and keeping the only weapon he had brought with him, a glowing golden dagger at his side.

vocalisistic asked:

Morrigan, Aphrodite, Minerva huehue

Morrigan: What do you think happens when we die?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Ok, actually I have this kind of theory where since energy in the universe never dies, the energy from our bodies disintegrates and recombines thus creating something completely new, whether it’d be plant, animal or another human. But from that point the ‘you’ stops existing, so it’s like you don’t really die but you are not yourself anymore. Still I don’t like this topic, death terrifies me.

Aphrodite: What do you think of yourself?

Im not really that old but I kind of feel like it’s been a really long way, there were ups and downs, I often felt like worthless shit but I guess it’s all behind me and I’m at peace with myself and really appreciate my life. Also I really enjoy being this sarcastic asshole :’)

Minerva: Do you generally give good advice?

It’s funny but I often give advices to situations I never have experienced, but I suppose my advices are usually good and well-considered.

anonymous asked:

Bragi

What kind of music do you listen to?
I literally listen to every kind of music but I’d say mostly punk-rockish but i vary so much like i love surf pop and folk too i generally just listen to anything i like and dont worry about confining myself to one genre

mecharisexual asked:

Mythology Asks --> Atum, Hathor, and Olwen!! :>

Atum: What are your greatest imperfections?

I’m very hypocritical in a lot of ways. I avoid doing a lot of things I don’t like until someone else does them for me, or it just never gets done, or I have no choice but to do it or face consequences. It’s pretty bad.

I also do this thing where I backseat drive. It’s terrible. I feel so bad for my boyfriend because that has to be the most annoying thing on the planet.

Oh and I’m terrible at contacting/keeping contact with people because I always think I’m bothering them. 

Hathor: What brings you joy?

Drawing… like just in general. It just makes me feel better.

Driving/being in the car. I don’t know what it is… but I get really calm in cars. It’s about the only way my dad and I get along sometimes.

Dogs. And Cats. And LIzards. And animals in general. 

And playing good games C:

Olwen: What is your favorite flower?

Oh my gosh I have no clue. I don’t really know much about flowers. Roses first came to my mind because I grew up with a lot of them in the garden. 

Then there are these cute little blue flowers up at the job site that I’m working at… They’re so pretty and bright in this really dusty, dirty place, that I just can’t help but stop and stare at them every once in a while. One of these days I’ll figure them out xD

kayaczek asked:

Tree, Jupiter, Proserpine dajesz!

Tree: What have you done with your life? What are you going to do with it?

(why are you doing this to me you asshole) I have no idea what I’m doing with my life, just enjoying small things while they last trying not to think about future which scares the living crap out of me : D

Jupiter: Would people say that you are intimidating or fairly approachable?

It depends. There are days when I have shitty mood and my face reflects it so perfectly that people sidestep from my way terrified :”D it also happens with my interactions with strangers. But as soon as I make some friends I can be really endearing.

Proserpine: Have you ever felt trapped?

I guess I kind of feel trapped right now because I need to make my diploma project with deadline hanging over my head and as a perfect example of procrastinator I do everything besides that..It makes me really stressed out and unable to just 100% calm down and relax

redfeathered asked:

Hœnir & Morpheus ?

Hœnir: Are you a silent or talkative person?

It depends, if I’m by myself or with one or two other people I’m quiet but if I’m with a whole group I’m very talkative.

Morpheus: Do you daydream often? Of what?

Sometimes, usually about what I’ll be doing in the following days if it’s something special, like a vacation.

kr-trap-deactivated20141207 asked:

Bran, Loki, Odin.

Bran: How is you’re health?

I would like to think my health is just fine but I know I would be lying to myself I chain smoke and drink a lot, on top of that I don’t sleep that much and do the work of five others by myself So, its probably shitty -laughs- But I think my mental and emotional health are okay

Loki: What is the best trick you’ve ever played on someone?

I’m not much for tricks usually; I have been nown to pull a really good sarcastic jab here and there though

Odin: What is your family like?

I won’t go into this too much since I dont really talk about my family that much in the open, but I will say my family is my family We are flawed and have been through a lot of harsh times But I do love them still and even if in some ways my family has been broken I would still do all I could to protect them

Send me a God
