realm of the gods

The wonderful thing about praying is that you leave a world of not being able to do something, and enter God’s realm where everything is possible. He specializes in the impossible. Nothing is too great for His almighty power. Nothing is too small for His love.

luke skywalker will use his vocal cords to emit sound out of his mouth in the form of communication to another human being and the shock waves of such an iconic act will make me astral project across space and time into a metaphysical realm not even known to god himself

the realm. do you know what the realm is? it’s the thousand blades of aegon’s enemies, a story we agree to tell each other over and over, until we forget that it’s a lie. but what do we have left, once we abandon the lie? chaos? a gaping pit waiting to swallow us all. chaos isn’t a pit. chaos is a ladder. many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. the fall breaks them. and some, are given a chance to climb. they refuse, they cling to the realm or the gods or love. illusions. only the ladder is real. the climb is all there is.

Children of the Gods: Hypnos, Greek God of Sleep

The realm of sleep is where these demigods hold the greatest sway. With soft brushes of their fingers and soothing, soporific whispers the children of Hypnos offer slumber and peace. Look for them as your eyelids grow heavy, or as dusk settles upon the land like a comforting blanket. Their persuasive lips weave hypnotic thoughts, while a harsh snap of the fingers may just as easily bar sleep from any who have misjudged them.

“Yet, there was once a king worthy of that name. That king was Arthur. (…) Arthur! He was the fairest flower of our race, Cymry’s most noble son, Lord of the Summer Realm, Pendragon of Britain. He wore God’s favour like a purple robe. Hear then, if you will, the tale of a  t r u e  k i n g.”  {requested by @mistresspendragon​}

Mokoš (Old Russian Мокошь) is a Slavic goddess mentioned in the Primary Chronicle, protector of women’s work and women’s destiny.She watches over spinning and weaving, shearing of sheep, and protects women in child birth. Mokosh is the handmaiden of Mat Zemlya.

Archeological evidence of Mokosh dates back to the 7th century BC. As late as the 19th century, she was worshipped as a force of fertility and the ruler of death. Worshipers prayed to Mokosh-stones or breast-shaped boulders that held power over the land and its people. In Eastern Europe and especially in modern day Russia, Mokosh is still popular as a powerful life giving force and protector of women. Villages are named after her. She shows up in embroidery, represented as a woman with uplifted hands and flanked by two plow horses.Sometimes she is shown with male sexual organs, as the deity in charge of male potency

"Humans are weird" - Imagination

One of those “humans are weird” things but what would imagination - like almost boundless limitless imagination - look like to aliens?

They’re baffled by the millions of fictional universes we’ve created - the fact that people can live with a whole imagined universe in their head with characters that are practically real people if they weren’t imaginary - omg, imaginary friends! What would that appear like?

Lord, but what would aliens think of the concept of ‘day dreaming’ - like suddenly their friends seem to not be there and when nudged only responds with a shrug and a smile “sorry I was miles away” - that we can seemingly interact as if we lived there in those imagined universes ourselves.

That’s not even getting into what kinds of fictional universes people have created - some truly remarkable stories and realms of fantasy or sci fi - God, what about Lovecraft, probably be even more horrifying?

A (slightly insane) theory

What happens when the Gods and Goddesses go back to their own realms? Are they still like Gods and Goddesses of Erilea? Or will they need someone to replace them all? Because we know already that Mab became Deanna, so mortals can become Gods/Goddesses. And in EOS, Dorian mentioned that it seemed like more than just a coincidence that everyone in their group was blessed by different Gods.
