>> Capture the Flag

Will and Nico have to be on opposing teams in capture the flag because if they were on the same team, there’s no way the other would win. ((Reyna and Nico think they’re such badasses but it’s okay cause they totally are.))

Will trying to use his sunlight control to throw Nico off his shadow-traveling game. Golden. ahaha. ((Mansi’s sunlight-controlling headcanon. His art is awesome, you should check them out!!))

I’ve been meaning to draw Percy Jackson lately, so here he is in all of his battered, salt watery, sandy glory. GDI Take a shower Percy. And no, your midnight swim in the ocean does not count.

Dark god AU Part 1

Lincoln couldn’t believe his facking eyes.

Like a scene straight out of a movie, the moment he was summoned, the world seemed to get darker. They were just standing on a rocky cliff, the sun high above them as gentle ocean waves crashed against the rocky shore below. Now, grey and heavy storm clouds rolled out of nowhere and blanketed the sky, hiding the sun and threatening to send a cascade of rain atop their heads. The once gentle ocean now churned and crashed against the cliff side so hard, Lincoln was sure that it was trying to bring the entire rock face and them with it down to the bottom of the sea. Somewhere along the sea horizon, thunder rolled.

And there he was. Standing tall and menacing before them, surrounded by a thick, neon green mist that circled around his calves. His eyes piercing the dark like two cursed emeralds, dangerous and threatening, and even though all his instincts told him to look away and bolt like a wee barra into his mother’s skirts, Lincoln couldn’t help but stare back into them.

He was staring into the eyes of a god. The god. The god he had been warned to never be in contact with. The god that had more rumors spread about him than legends. The god that even the other gods, his own father included, never talked about.

The god that had been lost for generations, was standing right before his very eyes. Glowing, practically overflowing with unused ancient energy that seemed to course and surge around him like green venomous lightning.

All because some fourteen year old girl called him a Seaweed Brain.

Hi, I was wondering if you could give some examples of lesser used Greek mythology monsters, and what kind of personalities they may have. Thank you so much. I love your blog so much.

Ooooh boy, this was my obsession growing up.  Here are my favorite top five that you probably haven’t heard of.  

Spoiler alert:  they’re weird.

5.  Ichthyocentaurs. 

“Ichthyocentaur,” by Chrisgiz12@DeviantArt.  

Or as I prefer to call them, mercentaurs.  They’ve got the arms and torso of a man, the front legs of a horse, and the tail of a fish.  They also have “lobster claw” horns on top of their heads.  

The two best known Ichthyocentaurs are the wise Aphros and Bythos, who are half-brothers of the Centaur Chiron (the fella who raised Jason, a la Jason and the Argonauts.)  In some version, it was the Ichthyocentaurs who hoisted Venus out of the ocean on her clam shell.

Their names really do translate roughly to “fish centaurs.” 

4.  Amphisbaena.

It’s like CatDog, except both ends are snakes.  In Greek mythology, when Perseus killed Medusa, the Pegasus was born out of her corpse but her blood on the ground birthed the Amphisbaena.  In some versions, it rolls across the desert by biting onto its other  head and forming a wheel, and it feasts on insects and human corpses.  Not friendly.

3.  Phorcys.

You heard of mercentaurs, now get ready for mercrabman.  Crabmerman.  Mermancrab.  Whatever, I’m still working on the name.  In Greek mythology, they called him Phorcys, and he was essentially a merman with the front claws of a crab and spiked red skin.  He’s purportedly a child of either Oceanus and Tethys or Pontus and Gaia (it varies from myth to myth) and is the father to a host of notable monster children, including the Gorgon sisters and possibly Echidna. 

Sufficed to say, he’s a big player in Greek mythology.

2.  Ophiotaurus.  

(Art via: https://mrpsmythopedia.wikispaces.com/Ophiotaurus

This one’s part bull and part serpent:  it’s got the front half of a bull and a snake’s tail.  That might sound like the end of it, but whoever burns the entrails of the Ophiotaurus is said to possess the power to defeat the gods.  It was attempted by an ally of the Titans during their war with the gods, but Zeus took the form of an eagle (or sent an eagle, depending on the myth) to retrieve them.  

I’m inclined to be fond of the Ophiotaurus, but I might be a bit prejudiced because of how endearing it was in Percy Jackson.

1.  Hippalectryon.

“HIPPALEKTRYON DE BRUYERE” by Fabian Palmari

I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried.  It’s part horse, part rooster, specifically in that order:  the Hippalectryon has the head (and sometimes front legs) of a horse and the hind legs, body, and wings of a rooster.  Its function and any notable myths about it remain unknown, but Aristophanes described it as “an awkward looking creature.” 

I’d imagine so, Aristrophanes, I’d imagine so.
