Hades: Can’t wait until Persephone is my wife so I can say “I love my wife” and introduce her to people by saying “I’d like you to meet my wife” and get out of boring social events by saying “I have to go home to my wife” and talk about her to anyone who will listen because she’s my wife and I adore her.

athena vs ares
i’ve seen this common mistake everywhere where when athena is referred to as a war goddess, people will say “no she’s the wisdom goddess, ares is the god of war,” and you’re not wrong. she is the goddess of wisdom but she is also a war goddess. so here’s the difference between athena’s “war” and ares’ “war.”
athena is a strategist, the tactician: she represented the ‘higher’ arts of warfare, and was also known as a patron of the ‘hero.’ she guided and supported those who did heroic deeds and was instrumental in demi-gods beating their monsters. (perseus’ and medusa), while aiding heracles during his twelve labours, and enabling achilles to defeat hector. she thinks along the lines of cunningness and not just pure violence without thought.
now ares is a much bigger difference. he represents the brutality and violence of war. it doesn’t matter who is at the end of the brutality. he enjoys it, i mean his chariot is pulled by horses that are red (the color of blood). he isn’t smart or cunning (often he is alongside another deity that will aid him in this aspect or help along with his victory like nike), he uses cruel violence. this displays who worshipped him (which surprise, wasn’t many; he didn’t have many temples either)
also so it’s clarified; greek mythology has many gods, goddesses, or deities that share aspects of the same thing. hekate and artemis share the moon aspect as goddesses, athena, hephaestus, and techne (all deities of arts)

Artemis: If we're walking together please take into consideration my tiny legs. I don't want to have to sprint to keep up with you on your leisurely stroll, you titans!
Athena: Just strap on some roller blades and hold on to our sleeves.
Ares: Yeah. We don't have all day.

Bit of a random question that's been bouncing around my brain box, but in the myths Athena is often described as being Zeus's favourite child (or favourite daughter, at least) being allowed to Aegis into battle and such. Is that the case in Fields of Asphodel?
I was only wondering because I saw the ask here ages ago about the whole...Zeus swallowing Athena thing and wondered if Zeus actually wound up feeling bad about that one haha
Athena: "Father, I want to use Aegis."
Zeus: "Athena, I don't allow anyone to-"
Athena: "Hey, remember that time you swallowed me whole?"
Zeus: "......" *quietly hands Aegis over*
Zeus and Athena's relationship definitely has complications, and the incident that corresponds to that in FoA (it's not swallowing per se, but the idea is there) is the biggest one. Not to spoil too much, but being his favorite is generally understood to be a temporary and fluctuating appointment, and having it does not necessarily mean one sought it.
Though probably his favorite child full stop is Apollo, and that one's fairly steady.

Ares: I vote we-
Athena: No, sorry, and no offense, Ares, but the stakes here are too high to let someone with your limited intellectual processing capacity weigh in.
Ares: I was gonna agree with you.
Athena: Oh, great, well, that's two votes for my plan.

Hestia Next person who tells me that is getting turned into a mushroom.
Hera: You can do that?
Demeter: One way or another, in the end, everyone gets turned into mushrooms. At least, if they're lucky enough to die in a forest.

“No one can weave as well as I—not even the Goddess Athena!” Arachne boasted, unaware of who else might be listening in. 
Revisiting one of the most memorable greek myths from my childhood, the weaving contest of Arachne and Athena.

Ares in Mythology:
Kills the guy who tried to assault his daughter and refused to apologize for it when he got put on trial (it was ruled justifiable homicide by Athena btw). 
The only time he’d been captured in battle was when he was protecting his mom from being captured by giants who wanted to forcibly marry her.
Found and Freed Thanatos when he was imprisoned by Sisyphus when no other Gods could
Helps found the Amazons by helping their founder escape her abusive husband and becomes their patron God.
Genuinely loves and respects Aphrodite as her own person
One of his epithets is “feasted by women”.
Ares in Modern Media: 
Meatheaded sexist asshole out of an eighties teen movie.
Conclusion: My boy is getting done dirtier than Hades in modern representation. Ares is one of the least problematic Gods in the pantheon (except for the murders, I will grant you) and ya’ll are sleeping on him.
