I wonder what Neal would think if he could see Rumple now. There was only one thing I liked Neal for and that was how he wouldn't put up with Rumple's shit. He warned Rumple in 3A that he'd spend eternity in Pandora's box if Rumple betrayed him and now Rumple only does something for himself. He doesn't care who he has to hurt to get his way.
I would absolutely agree with all of this if Neal hadn’t been the one to resurrect his damn father. Like the only reason Rumple was able to come back and continue to dick around in everyone’s lives and screw things up was because of Neal. Rumple was gone. Not an issue anymore. And Neal undid all that, got himself killed for him, and then has no unfinished business (like the woman and son he supposedly loved so much, he was willing to bring back the very asshole who he supposed hated so much? Yeeeeah, okay…).
Neal ended up hurting a lot of people by bringing his father back because he didn’t care who got in his way when it came to getting Emma and Henry back… so apple doesn’t fall far from the tree there.
These are just a small selection of things I’ve seen and heard people thinking on the internet. A lot of this comes from Greek Mythology based media, which has become increasingly popular. So I’m here to clear things up!
Hades was really good, he did all he could to make the underworld a comfortable place for his wife Persephone to live. He also was faithful to her and never sought out souls for his underworld, but waited for them to come to him. A lot of his perception as evil comes from the modern interpretation of Satan. Edit: If you are still unconvinced because of the Persephone story please click here and read two very well written responses as I am a terrible writer. If you need further clarification feel free to message me, but be respectful. I’m tired of being yelled at because people can’t be bothered figuring out what historical context means or that there isn’t one absolute correct version of myths.
There are some that seem like exceptions to this one, firstly is Heracles, who actually was just intensely determined and no stronger than a mortal could be if they poured effort into it. Dionysus is the other, as he became an olympian. But he generally gets a pass from historians, since Zeus actually gave birth to him, and that’s said to have an impact.
Hercules is Roman. You can imagine I cringe every time I hear his name in the Disney movie since he’s the only Romanised name in the whole thing.
Hermes was often painted with his sandals to identify him and this leads to the idea that he needs them to fly.
So basically the olympians started the big war, but Cronus kind of had it coming since he ate all of his children in order to stop the possibility of them overthrowing him like he had done to his father. So when Zeus freed all his brothers and sisters, that’s exactly what he did.
In most texts, Ares almost always was on the losing side of wars, whereas Athena was almost always on the winning side. Turns out in war you need more brains than brawn. At least you got Aphrodite, buddy.
In classical Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman on Earth. Pandora was given a beautiful jar with instructions not to open it under any circumstance. Impelled by her curiosity (given to her by the gods), Pandora opened it, and all evil contained therein escaped and spread over the earth. She hastened to close the container, but the whole contents had escaped, except for one thing that lay at the bottom – the Spirit of Hope.
19-year old Aliza Razell is exploring a perfect blend of reality and myth in her photo series, Anesidora.
Inspired by Greek story of Pandora, the first women on earth who Zeus gifted a special jar on the day of her marriage to Epimetheus. Zeus ordered that the jar not be opened but a curious Pandora opened the jar releasing all the bad things in it out into the world.
Razell’s burst of watercolors splash across the muted tones of the photographs spilling out into the other realm of the image creating a new twist on an old tale.
