two octopi

anonymous asked:

Isn't it kind of unrealistic to have a lot of gay characters in a medieval game?

bucko so far the fuck squad (one of whom is a half-orc oracle who is currently wasting away, like, physically) took a magical elevator down to a system of caves where they used spells and a mishmash of weapons from various historical locations and time periods to defeat a giant spider, a bugbear, several enchanted octopi, and two dudes who were turned into clockwork soldiers by having fuckass big keys stabbed into their backs

i think realism is out the window

Extremely Rare Minoan Ostrich Egg Rhyton, 16th Century BC

This is an extremely rare example of a painted ostrich eggshell belonging to the Minoan (2000-1500 BC) or Mycenaean (1600-1100 BC) civilizations. It’s beautifully decorated with depictions of two giant octopi in red paint.

Ostrich eggshells have been discovered on a number of Greek sites, for instance, in Mycenaean levels at Mycenae and Minoan levels at Knossos on Crete. Eggshells are known in contemporary ancient Egyptian, Levantine and Mesopotamian civilizations and in the millennium that followed in Etruscan and Phoenician society. They are frequently discovered amongst high prestige grave goods and were traded widely and this explains their broad geographical spread in the Greek Bronze Age.

Would you ever do a Triton, Thanatos, Percy story?

…Can’t tell if general question for fanfiction, or if I’m supposed to do the polyship meme. *blinks doe-eyed* In case of first one: The ship is coming up in my “Alphas of Percy Jackson” series for January 8th. Now for the meme:

1. Who’s the best gift giver? Do they go in on gifts or do it separately?

Triton. Being a king and all, he has the most beautiful corals and pearls at his disposal to make his lovers beautiful jewelry. Thanatos likes to court with food. Percy gets them dorky mortal stuff that amuses them.

2. Sleeping arrangements: Do they push the beds together? Who takes all of the blankets in bed? Who’s practically draped over the others?

Triton and Percy clinging onto Thanatos like two octopi. No blankets involved, only Thanatos’ wings draped over them both.

3. Who is always in the middle in triad cases?

Thanatos, with one son of Poseidon on either side ;D

4. How do date nights look like?

Fantastic. Between the underworld and the underwater world, Percy is always in for a magical beautiful date. Sometimes, he drags his gods up to New York for something mortal and they are more than curious how that goes. They go to aquariums A Lot.

5. Do any members get jealous? How do they act when they do?

Mmmh… Triton. He gets jealous easily. A lot. And then he gets possessive and physical, groping and holding onto his lovers to show “This one is taken, fuck off”.

6. Who asked who out? How was the first date(s)?

Thany did. First Triton, maaany centuries ago - a walk along the beach which was weird for them both - and then when Percy joined them. No spoilers about that though *grins*

7. Who brings home stray pets and convinces the others to keep them?

Percy and Triton. Triton tends to adopt fishes and dolphin babies and such. Percy… soon adapts that, after moving into the palace with Triton. Thanatos finds the concept curious but is happy to see his loved ones happy.

8. Who are the reckless ones that make Bad Decisions? Who are the sensible ones who follow after them to make sure they don’t die?

Percy. Always. All the time. Honestly, do I have to even answer this one for Percy-pairings anymore? Thanatos being the literal Death God… yeah, he keeps his Sea Prince alive.

9. Who’s the one who remembers everyone’s favorite orders at cafes/restaurants?

The cook at Triton’s palace does that for them ;D

10. Would/do they have kids? Who are the Responsible Parents, who are the Cool Parents™ to the polywogs?

Thanatos is the Responsible Parent, Triton is the Stern Parent and Percy is the Fun Parent who gets into trouble with his kids.

Pardon me if the joke has been made already, but is the reason Daisy uses the Octobrush so that she can be a beakon of sin?

PFPfptptp! That, and a few other reasons.

#1. She is Tanrine’s cousin and I wanted to give them similar weapons.

#2. It has the kraken

#3. I found out about this later but in Japanese version the brush is named after Hokusai, a famous Japanese artist who did a pretty interesting painting with a woman and two octopie, *cough*

I have one Hades x Poseidon x Percy

1. Who’s the best gift giver? Do they go in on gifts or do it separately?

Yeah, Hades, still. He loves spoiling his lovers with expensive gifts and his oceans love being spoiled by him because they know it makes him happy.

2. Sleeping arrangements: Do they push the beds together? Who takes all of the blankets in bed? Who’s practically draped over the others?

Hades, essentially suffocating between the two octopi he calls lovers. Also, giant-ass godly king bed, of course.

3. Who is always in the middle in triad cases?

Hades, definitely.

4. How do date nights look like?

Poseidon keeps forgetting them because he’s so busy, Hades keeps planning them and Percy keeps ruining them by being abducted, attacked by a monster or dragged into a prophecy. *cough cough* It’s a bit of a mess, but most of the time they still manage to make it work somehow.

5. Do any members get jealous? How do they act when they do?

Mmmh… Not really, no. They’re all pretty chill and know what they’re in for.

6. Who asked who out? How was the first date(s)?

Hades did the asking out. Though only because Persephone wing-womaned him and gave him a push. The first date was really cute and sweet, maybe a trip on a boat and a picnic. (I really like the idea of picnics for a first date, if you haven’t noticed yet. Well, I didn’t until this meme. It’s weird. I’ve never even been on a picnic *blinks*)

7. Who brings home stray pets and convinces the others to keep them?

All three of them. So no convincing needed. It’s just a giant mess of sea-monsters and ponies and unicorns and hellhounds.

8. Who are the reckless ones that make Bad Decisions? Who are the sensible ones who follow after them to make sure they don’t die?

Yeah. Percy. Always. Ever. Hades and Poseidon try their best, but the gods can’t interfere a lot, so there’s that. Though Hades usually sends Nico to keep an eye on Percy.

9. Who’s the one who remembers everyone’s favorite orders at cafes/restaurants?

None of them, because it’s not really important to them. Also, the underwater palace and the underworld palace both have cooks, so there’s not really a need for it.

10. Would/do they have kids? Who are the Responsible Parents, who are the Cool Parents™ to the polywogs?

Hades is the Responsible Parent, Poseidon is the Cool Parent and Percy is the one who fusses (because well obviously Zeus is not pleased with this union and that does put his kids into a dangerous position)
