WHEN: The Bronze Age

Angela here with Anaisa Pye. She's the Vodun Loa of love, luck, money, and happiness. Overall, she's very pleasant and friendly and a big, stinkin' flirt. So yes, she is totes flirting with your man because she can. On the other hand, she can also be super jealous of other female immortals because she hates it when they're getting all the attention and she's not. Her feast day is July 26, so expect her to be very loud about that because it's only her favorite day ever.

So friends, frenemies, lovers, whathaveyou please!

To Do List: Wear more black. Trash talk some cubists. Intro my sinnamon roll. Release a kraken. Stop listening to hotling bling. Write my thesis maybe.

If it's on a to-do list it counts as productivity, right?

Hi, hello world ! I'm Belle (aim: bramblecrown) and this addition to the Greek squad is Ariadne. Former Cretan princess, best known for the labyrinth narrative and her marriage to Dionysus. Ariadne's spent much of the last several centuries turning up with European hedonist, popularizing the hedgemaze, and convincing architects that roads that go no where are an A+ idea. She's the reason jug handles exist, sorry New Jersey. Currently she goes by the name Erin Sinclair and runs a performance artist collective called TheLabyrinth that throws bacchanal-esque events at sekrit venues. Bad and boujee. Wakes up every morning feeling like P Diddy.

All her information put together proper like is here. Pls come love me despite the mess that I am; I am open for bzns. Plot? Backstory? Enemies? Affiliates for TheLabyrinth? Did you do something fun this weekend? Anyone release any krakens today?

Only a few more days of school left! It's almost time to pack up my classroom. As much as I'll miss all of my children, I know they'll be okay. They've learned and improved so much this year. We have all sorts of fun things planned for the last week of school, because who teaches second graders brand new material on the last week of school? Not me. This is my fun week. I want them to remember second grade as being fun.

9th Ship  
[Menelaus had not seen Helen since her return. In truth he hadn't thought she'd return again, and the fact that his heart broke a second time for her, it made him put further distance between them. He used the time to focus on Arianna, her schooling and trying to show her her father was strong. But fate was a cruel monster, and it wasn't just Helen on his mind, but the fact that Arianna's mother finally came out of hiding and sent her daughter a letter, one that he quickly tossed out without even opening it. He spent the weekend trying to find it before the trash collector came, because Menelaus was not able to just let bygones be bygones. How did the woman find him when he'd never looked for her?]

It's been six years, and that woman found me. I can't bring myself to open the letter she sent to Arianna. Burning it seems more logical, but there is a fear she wants to destroy what I've spent years taking care of. It's times like this that I'd give anything for Agamemnon to show his face.

[Poseidon had spent his time traveling over the States, leaving a trail of storms in his wake, starting in Texas and a small stop in Louisiana, swallowing the south-central part of the country in flood-like rains. He was angry and bored. In some minute way he wanted to be noticed. As much as he despised any contact with the ilk of his own family, and Amphitrite, he was in his own way reaching out, showing just what he was capable of.]

I always did love the French Quarter. I'm surprised it's still standing after all these years. I have a fondness for the food and attractions, so I haven't completely let it sink into the ocean.

   The internet is a beautiful thing. I cannot believe it has taken me this long to come up with a plan of how I can use it to both make money and get more dates! The details are still a little nebulous, but the bulk of it has come together in my head, largely in the last forty-eight hours or so.

   It is not a plan I can carry out alone. The interviews, the travel, the face to face contact, they are all things I can do. The most important part, well, that has been my bread and butter for millennia. It is the computer part with which I will struggle... and that is where my darling son comes in.

   Eros, Mother has a proposition. How would you feel about going into business with me? I have the beginnings of a very sound business plan, and a proven track record of similar endeavors which have all done very well!

I must be an animal magnet. One full grown calico already and now there's a tiny black cat sitting outside the shop as if he's waiting for something or someone. This isn't a hotel, I'm not in the habit of picking up more strays. Black cats are bad luck, and I don't need anymore if that shit. The world is leaving me alone just as I like it. The moment I let that big, green-eyed monster into my shop, I'm doomed. Zeus himself wouldn't be able to save me, and I don't need to see a single fucking Olympian or any Greek or immortal for that matter any time soon.

It's sad when someone turns their nose up at your efforts. Hitching up a date isn't easy when you have picky co-workers. I gave them an opportunity and now all they can do is whine and cry about their exes. It's a new world of possibilities. Just a shame my arrow's magic doesn't stick long term these days. They should be more grateful.

Hello everybody!

I'm James, and I bring you Aphrodite!

I know there are a bunch of existing characters who may have existing lines with the previous Aphrodite, and I'm super open to talking about those. Mostly, though, I'm just looking to get to know you all and have some fun writing times!

My Aph is very independently wealthy, because over the years she's saved/reinvested a lot of the presents her many suitors give her. She runs/owns a handful of pretty successful businesses, and has another in the works right now - but that's a surprise that's yet to come!

You can get me on faithinthesound on AIM, or email jamesalanpark1@gmail.com. There's also an ic/ooc contact post on this journal. Alternatively, depending on your proximity to Christchurch, New Zealand, we can negotiate communication via smoke signal or interpretive dance.

I'm excited about all of the plots and connections! I can't wait to get started!

[He woke up in a sweat from a reoccurring nightmare he'd had since Polyxena left. That dream of a family that had been just within his grasp and it all ended painfully. He found himself walking a snow-capped landscape, leaving a trail of blood as he forced himself through the heavy snow. Once he reached the edge the seasons had changed and a desert path ahead with treacherous winds and sand stinging against his skin like knives. Each time he thought he'd come out of one natural disaster after the other, only to find himself faced with another. There seemed to be no end in sight, no moment to catch his breath or feel anything more than a statue ready to fall and collapse into a million pieces. Just as he started to teeter over and crash, he never hit the ground, and woke up in a sweat. Things had started to change for him again, but there was the past that seemed rake at his heels and drag him back. The things he'd done to help Helen, things that made him take two steps back instead of forward.]

The days of stillness and contempt seem to be a ghost of a dream. Nightmares have reemerged and I can't erase them.

It was highly unusual for him to go this long and feel so much emptiness. This wasn't the way it was supposed to be.]

I overheard some teenagers talking about a show, 13 Reasons Why. I was curious enough to watch it, and deeply wounded afterwards. A life is of such importance. I strive to be the person one would come to and confide in before they ever make a choice they can't take back. Maybe it's time to get back into counseling like my sister, to help others when I myself can't be.

Blimey, all these relaxation tools today. Salt rock lamps, cigs, water crystals, candles and water therapy. I thought it was all bloody ridiculous.

Yet, it's all sitting on my floor in hopes I can get through one night's sleep without pitching a tent outside. I think I've gone a little loco, or I should camping for a year. The outdoors used to be home. Maybe I need to become at one with nature again when baths and a shave weren't important.

On second thought, I think that tent sounds like a good idea
