oh medusa

I made a collage for my blog’s header with my fave voltage guys and girls~ 

Sometimes I go through phases where I can’t be bothered to put on make up or tame the wild floof that is my hair. So I’ll go weeks looking like Old Greg and then I put make up on and do my hair for some meeting and forget that I have then when I walk by a mirror I’m completely and genuinely surprised to not see a gremlin staring back at me. Does this happen to other people too?

Hunters T5

I just saw the post aaaand… I don’t like any of them. T_T

They’re cool looking and all but eh. Elements? Really?
At least they’re not the dragon or demon ones I saw but…
Finally no more “smite: angel & demon wars”

I like the fact that none of the 3 concepts change form by evolution
like archon thana tho. What an innovative ide-








Oh…

Been studying art and look, I finished my first official fanart (using cheap art supplies) I forgot the quiver and obviously the thing she has over her shoulders (not to mention the boobs are awkward and that fekn bow is bleh) but what the heck this is my first time. It’s just to see the things I’m horrible at (which is almost everything really).

It really bugs me when people accept Ovid's Medusa story as the canon original, they're always like "Athena's such a bitch, she cursed Medusa for being raped by Poseidon! Oh, poor Medusa!" Whereas Hesiod (Who predates Ovid's telling by close to 800-900 years) states that Medusa was BORN a gorgon, but Poseidon still thought she was hot as Hades and they had sex in a beautiful spring meadow, and it was fucking consensual too. Then again Ovid does mess up mythology a lot.

nothing in mythology is the original bc we have literally no clue which one is right,,, the only way we would know is if the gods themselves came down and told us

A princess is chained to a rock –
oh, what’s that? You know
how this story goes?

Yes, yes, but listen – listen.
A princess is chained to a rock
and there’s a prince on a pegasus
flying over the seas –

What? You know how this ends?
Fine.
Tell me how this ends.

The prince saves the princess.
Everybody lives happily ever after.
(Oh, except the sea monster
that never got her sacrifice.

Oh, except Medusa, who lost
her head and her maidenhood
to the cruel games of the gods.

Oh, except the princess, who lost
her innocence, her trust, her love
for her parents, her open heart.

But that’s not how the story goes.)

So, the prince and the princess
fall in love, and they go back
to her kingdom and – what now?

You want a different ending?
Happily ever after isn’t good enough?

What do you want?
Andromeda – taking revenge.
Andromeda – facing her father.
Andromeda – slaying the monster.

Andromeda – saving herself.

Oh, look at that.
She’s broken her chains.

Well, now you’ve done it.

(And the constellations shift to say:
HERE LIES ANDROMEDA
SEA BEAST SLAYER
PRINCESS AND HEROINE)

What About Medusa...

Okay but like get this.

What if Medusa after Medusa was caused, she lived in seclusion in this old cave in the middle of the forest and she’s so jaded and bitter and angry at everyone because men keep coming to kill her and she just wants to be left alone.

But then one day she’s walking by the river and she sees the body of some beaten guy thats bruised and bloody with a bang wrapped around his eyes and his clothes missing. And for some reason she decides to take him back to the cave so he doesn’t die (because she’s not completely evil). And then he wakes up and he’s blind. And so she decides he can stay while he recovers but she still ties him up because lets be real when men constantly try to murder you, you develop trust issues. 

BUT THEN she realizes that he makes her laugh because he’s sassy af and he tells her how the world has changed and she starts to tell who she is, but like he really doesn’t give shit because its not like she can turn him to stone. And he thinks her laugh is the most beautiful sound he’s ever heard and she thinks his optimism is ridiculous but it gives her hope.

 And they teach each other how to love because she can look at him without hurting him and she’s not afraid let her guard down. And he thinks her heart is so precious and he doesn’t feel helpless around her. And they dance in front of the fire, and she reads him her favorite book when they lay in bed and he always tell her she’s the most beautiful thing he’s ever known and they’re both SO HAPPY.

Injuries - Season One

Ariadne:

1x01: hit in the face

1x05: drugged unconscious

Medusa:

1x02: sliced hand (to save Hercules)

1x06: possibly enchanted by the song of the sirens when Hercules attempted to put her under a love spell (since it was actually a trap, we don’t know that it worked - Medusa’s feelings may have been her own - but Hercules is still an arsehole)

1x06: cursed by Circe (Hercules’ fault)

1x09: cursed by opening Pandora’s box (also Hercules’ fault)

Pythagoras:

1x01: fell and hit his head

1x06: clawed on arm

1x09: fell from balcony, then knocked out (long enough for a fire to spread through the house, be put out, and then for Jason and Hercules to be declared dead and hauled away)

1x09: sliced hand (he needed blood to wake Jason and Hercules)

1x12: drugged unconscious

Hercules:

1x06: shoulder injured while wrestling (it looks like there’s a cut when Pythagoras is tending to him, but there’s clearly no cut directly after the fight - Pythagoras is also doctoring the opposite shoulder)

1x06: turned into a pig by Circe

1x08: injured back due to being thrown against a rock wall

1x09: knocked unconscious

1x09: knocked unconscious again

1x09: drank poison that “will slow your heart until only the faintest traces of life remain“ in order to enter Hades (you threaten a man’s life to get information, he gives you a vial of poison while going “yes, here’s how you get to Hades” and refers to you and Jason as “the bodies” - and you actually drink it?!  WTF is wrong with you?!)  

1x09: whacked and tossed against a rock wall (but I don’t know if this counts, because he wasn’t physically there)

1x09: smoke inhalation

1x09: buried (I’m calling this an injury because who knows how long he was without oxygen)

Jason:

"stabbed through the arm there in the third week” - this is actually Jack’s scar, gotten during filming

1x01: woke up on the beach (meaning passed out while in the water)

1x01: shot with arrow (caused the scar on Jason’s upper, left arm in every episode)

1x03: voodoo dolled by Pasiphae

1x06: magically burned by Circe

1x07: kneed in the stomach by Hercules (might have gotten the crotch a bit also)

1x07: tossed around by Hercules and Pythagoras to train him for the Pankration

1x07: kneed in stomach again and separated shoulder

1x07: separated shoulder fixed by Hercules

1x07: “feverish”

1x07: smacked around in the arena, injured shoulder was targeted

1x07: smacked around in the arena again - Heptarian went for his injured shoulder also and added another yet another blow to the stomach, then went for the other shoulder and punched him in the face

1x08: punched in the face

1x09: drank poison that “will slow your heart until only the faintest traces of life remain“ in order to enter Hades (you threaten a man’s life to get information, he gives you a vial of poison while going “yes, here’s how you get to Hades” and refers to you and Hercules as “the bodies” - and you actually drink it?!  WTF is wrong with you?!) 

1x09: smoke inhalation

1x09: buried (I’m calling this an injury because who knows how long he was without oxygen)

1x10: axe, sword, or knife wound (knife assumed, although there was no blood on it, but Jason definitely stabbed somebody with it, so the lack of blood means nothing) - healed by Atalanta

1x11: cursed into being a Kynikoi (oh, who are we kidding, I’m just gonna say it: werewolf)

1x11: bitten and tossed against a wall

1x11: drank silver to cure the curse

1x12: arrow again (the amount of blood on the arrow goes from rather serious to “OMG, how is he not dead?!” between shots)

1x12: grazed by spear (even though it looks like it misses him by a good couple inches - serious enough to require bandaging)

1x13: scratched arm (no idea how this happened)

1x13: knocked unconscious by blow to the head
