With percy jackson content AND greek gods in the mcu this is the closest thing to an apology everyone around me is getting for the person im about to become
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.
hello it’s summer and it’s hot as hell, have a Hephaestus at the beach.
Aphrodite: I can rearrange your guts.
Hermes: As in sex, right?
Aphrodite: *cracks her knuckles*
Imagine being a sex worker in ancient Athens named: Mnesarete but everyone calls you:
and then some guy named Praxiteles looks at you and goes, "I'ma make you a naked statue, but not just any statue, a naked Aphrodite statue," sells it to Knidos and calls it "Aphrodite of Knidos."
Which turns you into such a legend making so much money that your ex lovers are suing you and your current lovers are defending you, and you get acquitted by showing off your breasts to the judges to prove you have the favor of the gods:
But you showing off your bits is debatable because so many ancient people are writing stories about you, so we don't know if you showed off your bits, your lover did, the judges requested it or what but we do know you went to court.
You are literally the face of Aphrodite
and your statue is so famous that it breaks the minds of ancient Greek people who have never seen a goddess depicted naked before. Your statue also gives Praxiteles massive fame and the invention of the Praxitelan S-curve.
Your statue has a famous legend attached to it:
about a young guy who commited suicide after breaking into a temple to try to have sex with your statue and getting caught by the priest: (LINK)
Also everyone is trying to buy your statue and putting the small town that bought it on the map because every one and their mother is going to see this statue, so it becomes a big tourist attraction and a major source of income for the town.
And if that's not all, even after you DIE the Romans become OBSESSED with your statue and they make different versions and poses with your FACE on them and canonize your face as Aphrodite to future generations forever.
and you were just this poor sex worker trying to live in a world that hates you and the women who are in the same boat as you, but Aphrodite looked at you and inspired Praxiteles to be like "Yup, that's her, that's the face of Aphrodite" which proves the idea of Aphrodite being known as the oldest fate: (The one that changes your fate in an instant because going from poor to rich AF in ancient Greece for an independent woman was practically IMPOSSIBLE).
And people still believe that Aphrodite does not protect or even likes sex workers while they look at the literal face of a sex worker whenever they look at a traditional statue of Aphrodite like...
Zeus: WHY IS THERE A 800K CHARGE ON MY CARD
Dionysus, who just bought a new leopard: dad im a material girl!
Zeus: GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!
A re-design of Persephone, I did try to accurately copy what was in the movie, but with a little adjustments like making her look more mature.
Gahh i like how she turned out, the very lovely wife of Hades.
Also a bit busy but not too much thankfully, just enough to have some breaks so I could do things I enjoy.
Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl -The Tomb of Achilles
Patrochilles's love is just like ( eating figs together), (doing swimming races), ( tracing hands on each other bodies), ( laying awake stargazing), ( just pressed on each other's chest), (racing each other through the mountains), (playing lyre), (listening to stories), (telling each other how they spent their day), (helping people together), (remembering herbs name), (visiting Uncle Chiron on his hill), (just laying on top of mountain murrmurring thousands of I love yous and promises to each other).
