Euterpe, Muse of Song.

See the other Muses:
Calliope - Clio - Erato
Polyhymnia - Melpomene - Thalia
Urania - Terpsichore - Euterpe

And with this design, I have completed all nine Muses!

Euterpe had me the most stumped out of all of them as far as what to do with her.  I kept trying to think of something that was very reserved, almost like in her living life she was a very conservative opera singer or something.  As soon as I started thinking of torn up half-skirts she finally started cooperating with me.  I'm really not sure why I was avoiding giving her more of a rocker edge, since I, well, love rock 'n roll.

Euterpe is one of those people who loves all types of music and will listen to anything, though.  I think maybe that's why I was having such a hard time figuring her out.  There's so much you can do with "song."

I still think she's usually quiet and shy until there's an instrument in her hand or she's belting out some song.  We'll see though, she still hasn't told me much about herself.  However, her color scheme being similar to Melpomene's?  That might have been on purpose.  They might have a strange/complicated relationship.

Euterpe and the other Muses appear in my Rise of the Guardians fanfic. Euterpe spends most of her time with Terpsichore.

Holy shit guys I was up all night doing this the sun is coming up what is my life?

Something Quite Peculiar - Chapter 01
Chapter One: Reminiscing
The cabin could barely be called a cabin. It was more of a hut: a building in the loosest sense of the word. It had four walls and a roof, a door, a window, and a chimney that looked as though it were ready to fall over. Truthfully, it appeared that a strong gust of wind could knock down the shack, with signs surrounding which read, “Condemned” and “No Trespassing.”
The small structure was concealed behind several large trees, and was incredibly easy to miss, nestled within the forest that rarely anyone ventured into.
It was always snowing around this cabin, regardless of the season.
Inside was exceedingly less interesting than outside, if at all possible. There was only one room, which contained a mattress and pillow in the corner, a fireplace that appeared to have not been used in decades, and a few shelves on one of the walls.
The shelves proved to be at least somewhat intriguing, containing items such as a matryoshka do

Damn. She just shot up to be neck and neck with Calliope to be my favorite design.

And I see da sun! Though I was looking for it.

Lol, oldest and youngest!  Glad you like her. =]

And lol, yeah, her sun symbol was not really hiding in this one.

Hm, it is oldest and youngest, isn't it?

I like how you can incorporate the designs so smoothly, not just adding them somewhere so they all have it. You don't even notice it much until it's pointed out, either, which I think is neat.

Thanks!  I tried not to force it too much, but I did want all of them to have it somewhere.
