Actualy, they are in the Underworld which is far more wholesome than Hell. They have places like Elysium for instance.
Ah, Hades and Persephone. Even with the kidnapping the second most wholesome couple in acient Greek myth.
Yeah and why is a mythological character referring to God?
I mean, compared to Zeus and Hera, almost any couple would be.
The sheer NUMBER of people and other lifeforms Zeus doinked...
Many Helenes believed in both mythological figures, and a sort of philosophical singular Theos, that is kind of like if a hindu story had Krishna talk about Brahman.
I'm convinced we wouldn't have nearly as much drama in terms of mythology if Zeus had just kept it in his pants.
Don't be a buzzkill, Persephone. He is three good boys.
Jason and the Argonauts, Perseus, Hercules, the list goes on and on. And the ways he did it! Golden mist and turning into a swan. A fucking swan. Why? Just why?
There were some early retellings of the story in which she very consciously ate the food in the Underworld because she thought Hades was fiiiiine.
Ha. A fucking swan. I see what you did there.
It's her equivalent of saying "dude"
"Oh my dude."
Reminds me of a passage out of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series. The lord of the underworld has a dog, and named him Spot haha.
Because she's talking to Hades, her god! :)
it's a swan. Made for fuckin'
He's right, references to a singular all-encompassing god were in fact extremely common in hellenic thought. Orphic traditions believed in a single creator deity without name or characteristics who shaped the primordial nothingness into ordered being.
Well it's impossible for them not to be good boys.
Spot is actually what some believe to be what Cerebus means, which meant that Hades named his dog Spot. Source: https://www.behindthename.com/name/cerberus
The number of the hecka good boye beast!
Did you know swans can be gay?
This is Hades and Persephone from Greek mythology, not Norse.
It she's a god as well
Go to hell ;)
Oh no. When I checked this it had 666 karma! XD
I think I'm going to cry.
and the trikephaloid pupper ain't there to get punished. Silly Purse should know that after all these years.
Actually hel is goddess of the underworld in norse mythology. She takes in the lost and the damned who did not reach Valhalla and shows them eternal love and compassion forever regardless of how wicked or depraved they were, because she's just as wicked and depraved and understands them.
I found nothing about a "philosophical singular". It just seems to be the singular of "gods"
But he does not wear pants. Pants are so barbaric, no Greek god would wear them.
