    Summary

    Women in Ancient Greece were considered to lack the control of the deliberate part of the soul. A common idea about beings with some perceived flaw in their soul is that they are monstrous, while portrayals of trading or losing the soul for magic are also a common theme. Women, greek and barbarian alike, are often portrayed by Greek Myth as magical (in an implied or outright sinister fashion), or as monstrous. I intend to investigate the label of the monster as a way of othering and marginalizing women, especially barbarian women, w this question:
    How did the portrayal of women in myth as magical and monstrous help perpetuate the associations of women as conniving poisoners or deviations from the male norm?
    By portraying women, especially barbarian women, as magical and monstrous in myth, it was easier to rationalize the otherness of women and explain why they were imperfect creatures that could not be trusted, further codifying the marginalization of women into the accepted academia by sealing it into the very fabric of their literary religious history. Further, the associations of these fictional women as sex-obsessed or sex-ruined were meant to display to real Greek women the dangers of sexual agency.

    Summary

    The life and times of another. Unknown to the Boy-Who-Lived, another group of students dared to plunder the hidden depths of magic and history forgotten by all. History and time itself will unravel, and the Wizarding and Muggle worlds will never be the same.
    This story uses the original material as a blueprint to create a mostly canon-compliant tale that is separate, yet connected to the main series. Copious usage of Original Characters, to the extent that they make up most of the main cast. Scarce romance as this is only the first installment in the series. Hints and implications may ensue, however.

    Summary

    The first time San saw Wooyoung was across a dance floor, cast in blue light and velvet shadow. His eyes were bright in the darkness, steely gray and reflective, heavy black shadow brushed stark against his skin.

    San’s breath caught in his throat and he couldn’t move, couldn’t take it down to fill his lungs, no matter how hard he willed himself to breathe, breathe.

    Summary

    -

    Lena's never particularly had a thing for dragons.

    Everyone is always head-over-fucking-heels for them, though, like seeing a dragon walk by is the equivalent of meeting 2006 Gerard Way. But Lena grew up living with them, so a large part of their mythical charm is sort of lost on her. She knows underneath the fire-breathing and shiny scales and award-winning smiles, there's just the irrefutable fact that they're all a bunch of massive dorks: they're ridiculously shy and they make bad jokes, and have gorgeous curly hair and too-big eyes, and rose-colored lips that look terribly fucking soft.

    Ugh, fine, so maybe she does have a thing for one dragon.
     

    OR,

    au; kara's a shapeshifting dragon, and lena's a gorgon who happens to be in love with her
