Sun Wukong's Greatest Feat of StrengthLast updated: 08/10/2018
Now that I’ve written an entry debunking the idea that Sun Wukong’s staff anchored the Milky Way, I now want to write a piece about his greatest feat of strength in Journey to the West. This feat takes place in chapter 33 after Zhu Bajie has been captured by two demon brothers, Kings Goldhorn (Jinjiao Dawang, 金角大王) and Silverhorn (Yinjiao Dawang, 銀角大王). King Silverhorn, the younger of the two, then sets out to capture Tripitaka but is forced to resort to trickery when he learn
Prayer of Peace to The People of DanuWe should be defending the global
Environment, but we have to fight instead
To defend fundamental human rights
In this disgraceful, exhausting chaos…!
The majority of people are not violent;
Is there a discrepancy so great between us that
We cannot reach some understanding? I know my
Own perception, therefore may I listen in patience…!
I know the constant reports,
Everybody knows them, therefore how
Can a discussion happen between all views and we
Reach an agreement that mitigates volatile contention?
Son of Lir, O Manannan who is the Lord of the
Sea, of the Land of Promise, may we survive
This horrific storm, offer your
Goblet of Truth that we will be enlightened…!
O Brigid, I ask that You would change
The fire of strife that it will be Your own
Fire of Healing, let us avoid the
Descent into contention again, I desire resolution…!
Airmed, I desire that You would reinforce
All the Flora of the World, that they will return
To their home domains, tha
This group is for artwork that depicts a mythological individual, event, or theme.
Mythology isn't the same as fandom, and isn't the same as fantasy. If you are not sure, please read this journal entry:
What is Mythology Art? (CLICK HERE)
This gives some guidelines as well as specific examples of what type of work belongs here and what does not.
For visual art: if the mythological element is not overtly evident in the image, you should include information about the mythological significance of the piece in the artist's comments.
For literature submissions: If the mythological content is not obvious in the text (perhaps it is a retelling of a mythological cycle or involves characters/Gods/themes from mythological lore), please make the following evident in the artist's comments: Which Mythological Lore you are Referencing and That it is a work of fiction.
Scholarly work, research papers or otherwise academic thesis' that discuss mythological topics and ideas are acceptable. This sort of discussion is encouraged.
Finally, things to remember about the submission process itself:
PLEASE LIMIT YOUR SUBMISSIONS TO 3 PER WEEK.
We are human beings. Sometimes we hit the wrong button. Sometimes it takes us a while to get back to you. It happens, but it doesn't mean you are not important or that we hate you.
We cannot possibly offer feedback every time we decline an image. If you would like to request feedback as to why your image was refused, please submit a note to us and those who have available insight will get back to you AS SOON AS WE CAN. This can be a few days, but often no longer than a week. If you have a problem with non-immediate reactions (though sometimes they are), please exercise patience. If you cannot be patient, we're probably not the right group for you.
Absolutely none of us want any of our members or guests to feel put out, but we cannot please everyone. Many of our admins/contributors are -very- well versed in mythology, though we each have our areas of strength and weakness. If you can quote the lore, chances are we like you.
