    You know, I told myself I wasn't going to do another one of these so soon - honest I wasn't! But, today is the first day of spring, so that seemed like the perfect time to celebrate and honor one of my absolute favorite works of fiction and art beyond the Star Wars universe. With that said, it is my honor to present . . .

    The Lore Olympus Quote Roulette!


    [​IMG]

    Lore Olympus is a digital comic written and illustrated by Rachel Smythe. (You can read the entire series for free over at Webtoon.) It's a retelling of several stories from Greek Mythology - though its primary focus is on the tale of Persephone - with a blend of modern and classic aesthetics, and, most importantly, with modern sensibilities in mind. It's by turns funny and heartbreaking and romantic, and the style of the artwork is just drop dead (hee :p) gorgeous, to boot. Every page is a true joy to read!

    So, step right up and claim a number, and I will give you a quote from the series and its corresponding page for reference! These stories have inspired for ages; let's see if they can inspire your muse now.

    (Also, as a disclaimer, the comic isn't entirely TOS compliant, so the link I gave you only takes you to the main page. But, all the pages that will be linked for the purpose of this challenge are good to go. I just had to make sure to cover my bases there as a Mod by saying so. :p)


    The Participants
    1
    . @Ewok Poet
    Persephone: I’m okay, I’m okay. I just - (reaches out and covers Hades’ eyes)
    Hades: W-what are you doing?
    Persephone: I just don’t want you to see me cry again. (Ep. 40)

    2. @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha
    Eros: She told me she was planning on crushing all her feelings down until they whither and die.
    Aphrodite: But that’s so boring and depressing!
    Eros: That’s what I said! (Ep. 68)

    3. @amidalachick
    Hades: Metis once told me that I shouldn’t be frustrated by my slow recovery. She said it was because “I had more sorrow in my blood”. I suppose we would call it trauma now.
    Persephone: Does it ever go away?
    Hades: I’m not sure . . . not completely. But it does get smaller . . . easier to manage. (Ep. 133)

    4. @earlybird-obi-wan
    Fate 1: Isn’t it obvious? The king has lost a valuable memory to wine.
    Fate 2: And this memory involves a young lady?
    Hades: I just want to know what I did and how embarrassing it was! (Ep. 75)

    5. @ViariSkywalker
    Aeres: Last time I saw you, you were plump with optimism. But now you’re so angry, you’re practically rotting from the inside. Bringer of Death, what did you do? (Ep. 86)

    You get this heartbreakingly adorable quote from one of my favorite parts of the comic:

    Persephone: I’m okay, I’m okay. I just - (reaches out and covers Hades’ eyes)
    Hades: W-what are you doing?
    Persephone: I just don’t want you to see me cry again. (Ep. 40)

    You have a sixth sense for these quotes, you really do. :p (Also: I know, right?? [face_love])

    Aeres: Last time I saw you, you were plump with optimism. But now you’re so angry, you’re practically rotting from the inside. Bringer of Death, what did you do? (Ep. 86)

    :D

    What's more rainbows and sunbeamy than the personifications of Love and Beauty themselves? ;) I betcha you can do something with good ol' #2:

    Eros: She told me she was planning on crushing all her feelings down until they whither and die.
    Aphrodite: But that’s so boring and depressing!
    Eros: That’s what I said! (Ep. 68)

    Just want to say, even though I've never been big into Greek mythology (ancient Egypt was my thing :p), these quotes are so awesome and such a cool idea for a spring challenge! :D

    You got it! #4 is ripe for comedic potential with . . .

    Fate 1: Isn’t it obvious? The king has lost a valuable memory to wine.
    Fate 2: And this memory involves a young lady?
    Hades: I just want to know what I did and how embarrassing it was! (Ep. 75)

    Although, let's be honest, I could have quoted so many things from that page. :p


    That leaves just #3 up for grabs! It's a bit of a bittersweet prompt, if that sounds like something you'd be interested in. [face_mischief]

    @Mira_Jade I wasn't going to do this because I probably won't end up writing anything and I don't need any more prompts to fail at anyway. But these are such great quotes, and with #3 sitting there all by its lonely little self, it's hard to resist. [face_batting]

    So if it's okay with you, could I conditionally ask for #3? Like if someone comes along in the next few days and wants it, give it to them, but if it's still unclaimed by, say, Friday (or whenever you choose), I'll take it?

    Fantastic! I'm adding it to the index now. :D [face_dancing]

    And, @amidalachick, I'm just going to go ahead and give you #3. There's no one better for this quote, and I hope it inspires you! [:D]

    Hades: Metis once told me that I shouldn’t be frustrated by my slow recovery. She said it was because “I had more sorrow in my blood”. I suppose we would call it trauma now.
    Persephone: Does it ever go away?
    Hades: I’m not sure . . . not completely. But it does get smaller . . . easier to manage. (Ep. 133)


    With that, all of the Lore Olympus quotes are claimed! Who else has a challenge in mind? Step right up and don't be shy! [face_dancing] [:D]

    Wow, that hits me right in the feels for a few different reasons. And it ties in with a Springsteen song (shocking, I know :p) that I've been wanting to do something with! Thank you so much, Mira. [face_love]
