Hammer Time

Another day, another set of arms, Hephaestos thought as he filled the cast for the helmet with white hot iron, his strong arms having no problem handling the heavy bucket with molten content, the heat not bothering him the slightest. But this armour was special, had to be special, as he was doing it for one of his best friends, the goddess Thetis. Or rather, for Thetis' combater of a son, the demigod Achilles. The helmet cast had been modelled with the perfect proportions of Achilles' head, it would fit him like a second skin, not straining, itching or scafing anywhere. Still, it would cover every tender and soft mortal flesh possible. The op

When a man loves a woman

Olympos was alive with three hot news items. 1. Demeter was pregnant 2. Apollo had fallen in love with a mortal MAN. Hyacintos. And ended up killing him! 3. Aphrodite was marrying Hephaestos and also taking over Themis' seat in the Dodekatheon. Among all the gods it was impossible to decide what was the hottest and the juiciest. Which story was the most unexpected. Demeter had always seemed so content with her gardening and growth and that laid-back status quo life of hers. The goddess had kept on doing her thing all through the years and seemed perfectly happy with that. Then all of a sudden she had become hotly involved with Carmanor. A n

"You did WHAT?" Hephaestos raged as he balled his fist and put on his best intimidating face. "I proposed to Aphrodite," Ares replied with a smug voice where he stood nonchalantly leaned against a pillar. "You asshole, what makes you think she want you?" "Little brother, what's it to you?" Ares was shaking his head slightly. "I mean really, you haven't bothered with Aphrodite in years and years and years! So enlighten me! Why should you be concerned by me marrying her?" "Because I care for her," Hephaestos snarled. "You care?" Ares lifted a brow. "For a woman you hardly talk to these days?" "I don't want her to end up with YOU!" "So what's

Leaning forward, Aphrodite launched Andrealphus into a fast gallop, rejoicing in the power of the strong muscles of the stallion, seeing the poppy-spangled grass turn into blur around her when the horse sped up. This was almost like flying, yet in a way different. It made her feel more connected to the earthly matters, to the nature and the mortality. The divine world could be so etheric sometimes and Aphrodite felt she needed to distance herself from it from time to time. To ground herself. She needed to experience the world as it appeared to a mortal. She needed to perceive their reality. Taking in mind her constant work with mortals, their

"You look lovely," Hephaestos complemented her where he stood leaned against the door frame, his arms crossed and his sand-coloured hair wet from a wash or perhaps a swim. "What's with the dress-up?" "I'm invited to a wedding." "Business or pleasure?" Hephaestos asked. "In this case they are more or less interchangeable," Aphrodite tittered. "So who's getting married?" "Leto's sister Asteria and the god Phanes." "Haven't they been hanging like forever?" "Yes, but it's first now they have decided to marry for real. And don't worry for not getting invited. They only want a small ceremony. Actually I'm the only Olympian going. Save for Artemi

What's love got to do with it?

Athena, Artemis, Eos, Selene, Hermes, Apollo, Poseidon, Hestia, Demeter, Hecate, Hemera, Nyx...  Aphrodite was spinning the pen between her hands, staring at those names again. Gods and goddesses without a significant other, no doubt feeling that loss even if some of them, like Artemis, tried so hard to pretend otherwise. According to Aphrodite none of them deserved missing someone in their lives. There sure wasn't anything wrong with any of them. All handsome and clever, kind and open minded people, however none of them without their fair share of quirks. Then who was without them? Aphrodite was not flawless herself. Neither were people like

"Stupid! Stupid, stupid, stupid!!!" Aphrodite scoffed while stumbling home in the late night. It was almost morning, the sky was brightening up in the east and mist was dancing among the trees, drops of dew glimmering in the faint light like discarded pearls. She had messed up again! Just when she thought she had straightened out her love life had she gone ahead and made it all the more complicated. She couldn't blame the booze, or that Helios was as hot as the sun he was working with, nor could she blame being a newbie – she had been here at Olympos almost five years now. However it had been one of those nights when everything could ha

He was missing her! He should've returned earlier! He should've talked to her! Ares balled his fists – he simply couldn't believe it! Had she taken any other god, he wouldn't have been surprised, not even that doofus Poseidon. But Hephaestos – his workaholic baby brother, who hardly poked his nose out of that workshop of his. HE had marched along and grabbed his Aphrodite while Ares was away. "How did it happen – WHEN did it happen?" he asked with frustration in his voice. "I dunno," Persephone shrugged and went on peeling her scrimp. "I was down under." "But..." "Half a year ago. I'd just left. I learned it upon my retu

It took a few months for Aphrodite to find a good match for Alcmaeon of Argos. First she had tried with a noblewoman from Mycenae, a lady about a decade younger than the Argos King and thus still in fertile ages. Having a past which included two young daughters, she was in a way at the same state in life as Alcmaeon. But what had first looked like a likeable combination proved less favourable the long run, since this Algetha, although she seemed empathic, had a bit hard to cope with Alcmaeon's dealing with his loss. Perhaps his heart wasn't in it for real either. Alcmaeon was still too preoccupied with his memories of the late Mylasia. No, Ap

Achilles' Choise

After Patroklos' death Achilles had been beside himself. To put it mildly. Or to put it more correctly, he had become a berserking madman, crazier in battle than Ares himself. To avenge his beloved cousin Achilles had sought out the Trojan Hector and slaughtered him brutally. Hector, who had generally been considered Achilles' superior when it came to fighting skills, hadn't stood a chance against the infuriated Greek. Achilles had attacked Hector with murder in his eyes, not seeking a battle kill but pure and hot blooded murder, the war forgotten; avenge being the only thing that counted. As if that hadn't been enough Achilles had defiled an

Between love and lust

Between Love And LustHow well do we know Aphrodite? She, who was prophesied to become the ultimate Goddess of Love. Save for her love affairs, very little, I'd say. As a matter of fact, it's rather scrouded in mystery how she came to Olympos and how she felt about those men who kept on moving in and out of her life. I've given this story a try, including a more reasonable view of her 'birth'. So welcome and follow the tale of Aphrodite, a goddess who became recruited to the magnificent Olympos and there became torn between the fierce love of Ares the war god and the ingenious and gentle Hephaestos. A word of warning to sensitive souls –

A first time for everything

A first time for everything I realized recently that this story has never really been told. The one about Zeus' very first love experience. The event to start all other events for the probably biggest womanizer in the myths. So I wrote it myself! http://chibichiquita.deviantart.com/art/A-first-time-for-everything-445273654 Wonderful people: ~Luddox (https://www.deviantart.com/luddox) :iconHera-of-Stockholm: :iconalienette::iconlostlook: :iconCherishedMemories: :iconjeanskitty: :iconthaloanthe: :iconspiderdroid: :iconomicronia: :iconsilverexpress: :iconsinavril: :iconkirasaintclair: :iconjacquelinedee-inc: :iconRathunta::iconlouly: :iconchromic7sky: :iconblingblingbabe:
