So much to do. So much to consider.
Darkness had settled hours ago and the house was finally quiet. Though weary from a long day, Diana knew that sleep would be a difficult prize to claim, especially with everything in her mind that vied for her attention. She lay on her back, right in the middle of her spacious bed as she stared at the ceiling with troubled blue eyes. With one hand laying on her belly and the other arm curled around her head, she did her best to relax her body, hoping that her mind would soon follow. Her long black hair was pulled to one side and was flailed out on her pillow and bed. Her spacious bedroom was dimly lit in the warm blue glow offered by the full moon. There were not many furnishings, only the bed, desk across the room under the window and a wardrobe that was made of some dark wood. Two other pieces had joined the

Though it was a sunny and lovely day, everyone was too distracted to notice the rare moment of peace in their kingdom. This was because it was the week before Valentine's Day in Mushroom Kingdom!
The streets and item shops were filled window displays of gift ideas, shades of pink and red, roses, and toads rushing here and there searching for the perfect gifts to give! Excitement, suspense, and love was filling the air! Every minute that passed meant they were a minute closer to the special day!
Mario and Luigi were also among the many who were searching for the perfect gift.
"THIS IS MY YEAR, WEEGI!!" Mario declared.
For years he had trouble and doubt about gift giving, but he promised he had the best idea this time. However, Luigi wasn't impressed or as optimistic as his older brother.

Top Ten Myths About The AmazonsTop ten myths about the Amazons.Top Ten Myths About The Amazons2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
1) Amazons are purely a myth.
This is purely a false statement. Evidence from the ancient world provides documents of a matriarchal society in Asia Minor run by a queen. This society was the location of Amazonia, the ancient kingdom of the Amazons. There are records suggesting that this civilization run by women was a powerful force in the ancient world. Babylonian, Greek, Roman, and even Egyptian texts suggest that many countries including Troy were allies and enemies with Amazonia. There is also historical evidence that these women came from the north from the land that is now Russia. Even Alexander the Great is recorded meeting with an Amazon Queen during his trips through Asia Minor.
2) The Amazons hated men.
This statement is also a false myth stated in Greek culture more than Greek text. In the ancient world, women in power were viewed as evil or dangerous. Greece was a society ruled by males. A culture with a woman in power wou

The Pandora Paradox
First off there’s the element I call the Pandora Paradox. Marston had the myth of Pandora in mind when choosing Diana’s origins. For those who are fuzzy on the myth, Pandora was created from clay by Hephaestus, god of the forge and given several unique gifts by the gods. Pandora was actually created as a punishment for the sins of the Titian, Prometheus. Prometheus had tricked and robbed the gods of Olympus twice and given the sto

A misunderstood goddess
Lilith shines brightly
Lilith's a beacon
She's a true pillar of strength
Though she's deemed deadly
Betrayed by a man
Cast out by a loving god
What was she to do?
She was on her own
And even that was a sin
So why not just live?
Lilith held a flame
And a spark of true courage
To live out her life
Harlot or mother
Demon or just a lost soul
This is her torment
To never find rest
To always wander the world
Can she find repose?
Branded a traitor
The angels still pursue her
She cannot even cry
Not for her lost home
The husband who turned his back
The children Eve stole
She must look ahead
As she carves out a new path
And watches her back
She's still wondering
And is still empowering
To those who call her

To the young lady the guard was no more than a watchdog, meant to intrude on her life. To Corvo, it was the only thing he was trained for. And he was trained in many things.

Welcome back to Girl Power Month on SithVamp Reviews! Well, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice will be out in theaters next year, and in that movie we’ll see the Amazon Princess herself: Wonder Woman for the first time in a live-action movie, and in 2017, she’ll get a movie of her own. But before we see how Gal Gadot portrays the Amazon Princess, I’d like to take a look at the first movie about Diana. An animated movie, with the title same as the Superheroine’s name: Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman came out in 2009. The movie opens with the Amazons, led by Queen Hyppolita, fighting an army of demons, led by Ares, the God of War (voiced by Alfred Molina). It’s a long and violent battle between the two armies and many Amazons get killed. Among the Amazons there are Artemis (voiced by Rosario Dawson, and no, this Artemis is not Young Justice Artemis), Alexa (Who's more of a bookworm than a warrior, and is voiced by Tara Strong) and Persephone.
