    Summary

    There is a contest, a battle of wills. Athena and Arachne, Apollo and Icarus, Medusa and Poseidon.

    They will say that it is hubris to challenge a god. They will call pride a fatal flaw, say that anyone who dares fight a god is destined to fail.

    They will say a lot. Very little of it will be true.

    Icarus falls, and Arachne weaves a net to catch him. Arachne is turned into a spider, and Medusa turns a goddess to stone. Medusa’s gaze turns mortals to stone, and Icarus uses his knowledge of anatomy to speak healing enchantments into her flesh after she gouges her own eyes out.

    Jealous gods take what they want, but they cannot stop the mending that comes afterward. They cannot stop the stubborn will of humans who love things to destruction, who would rather burn than run.

    Summary

    Expanded from The Tale of Beren and Luthien Tinuviel, a short story in The Silmarillion, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The original story ends the same way as The Return of the King, so I changed Morgoth from a fiery monster into a Cthulhu-like dark god by borrowing from H.P. Lovecraft, and added a few surprise twists here and there. Enjoy!

    Summary

    This is just a short little thing that popped into my head looking at poems about Greek Mythology on Tumblr. I wrote this in about 15 minutes, so it's not going to be a work of genius, but I feel like it is a pretty good base for something I may want to return to later. I had intended to go into it as a free form poem, but it sort of morphed into a prose work. As always, any suggestions or constructive comments would be greatly appreciated.

    This poem and more can be found in my new Chapbook for Amazon kindle: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZSF9QDQ

    Summary

    The myth of Arachne by Ovid, rewritten (originally for a class assignment). Arachne is a young painter under the tutelage of Minerva. She has outgrown the need for her teacher, though Minerva isn't going to easily accept that. Warning: from the POV of a not-mentally-sound Minerva.

    Summary

    It's never wise to anger a goddess...and when a Mortal princess does just that, Hebe realizes exactly why not.

    The story of Athene and Arachne - told through the eyes of Hebe. A companion to "Daughters of Zeus", though reading that first isn't a requirement (it may be helpful, though.)

    Summary

    Die spinnen, die Römer, wusste schon Asterix. Hier ein paar Impressionen aus der Gruppentherapie der Metamorphosen von Ovid. Recht kurz, sehr viel Crack und ich werde irgendwann auch noch eine „gescheite“ Geschichte zu den Metamorphosen schreiben. Aber wie sang schon Roberto Blanco – ein bisschen Spaß muss sein.

    Summary

    Hey. I’m Zeus. You might know me as the king of the gods and leader of all Olympus. And trust me I wish I could be, but unfortunately right now the only thing I am king of is the prom. Yeah, I’m a high school student. Yeah, it pretty much sucks. The Oracle told me to start a little diary about all my future subjects. Apparently the more I know them the easier it will be to rule them when I get older. So here we are, welcome to the inner workings of Olympus High.
