crown-and-glory:

the homeric hymn to artemis

i lift my voice in song to flaming artemis of the pure golden arrow—beloved, eternal maiden, bull’s-eye archer, who with one shot fells the mighty stag… she who stands firmly on the wind-swept peak of the shadowed mountain to draw back her golden bow, to loose her fatal, piercing arrows in the ecstasy of the hunt. the tops of the high mountains tremble; through all the dark forest echo terrified cries of the creatures of the woods. the earth shakes… the goddess of the invincible heart springs out, surrounds everything, unleashes merciful, sudden death among the wild beasts of the wood.

notbecauseofvictories:








if the devil wants to play his card games now he’ll have to play without an ace in his deck







bluffing with blank cards—Deck City is sprawling, anarchic, a battleground wrought in iron and steel for the four women who vying for control over all of it. Starring Viola Davis as the spymistress Queen of Spades, Noomi Rapace as the wealthy Queen of Diamonds, Jessica Chastain as the temptress Queen of Hearts, and Charlize Theron as the coldly violent Queen of Clubs.
Also starring Lucy Liu as the Dealer, a shadowy figure who straddles the line between narrator and character, refuses to tell you the rules, and smiles all the time.
Place your bets.

favourite faces for favourite mythic ladies: Celaeno with Hilary Rhoda

Where dreadful Celaeno and her coven of Harpies dwell, now the house of Phineus is barred and in fear they have left their pristine banquets. No viler monstrosity than they, no pest more atrocious did ever the wrath of god conjure up out of hell’s swamp. Bird-bodied, girl-faced things they are.

Her sisters barely marked him, but to Celaeno there was something about the young prince that caught her. So young, so fair - Celaeno was neither. Sea-faring queen, monstrous maiden, sky-prophet that she was, Celaeno tilted her head from the perch above and Aeneas hardly dared to look at her. Smarter than his brothers. She and her sisters could swallow him down, crunch his bones in their teeth, make a nest of the flesh he left behind. No better nest than the still-warm skin of a hero.

And so she gave him his future, laid it out like a banquet, laid it out like a furrowed field, waiting but ignored. She passed her curse to him from a clawed hand and didn’t expect that he would heed her. Heroes never heard the words of women, monsters or not.

mythology series  the laurel nymph daphne [Δάφνη]

just give me time
you know your desires and mine
so wrap my flesh in ivy and in twine
for i must be well

keep the earth below my feet
for all my sweat, my blood runs weak
let me learn from where i have been

oh keep my eyes to serve, my hands to learn

keep the earth below my feet

story time | mermaids are the sea. beautiful, turbulent souls rising like waves to crush seamen, seducing the coast with legendary awe, and marking victims with a salty kiss.

ilvalentinos:

hundred years, hundred more,
some day we may see
a woman king, sword in hand
swing at some evil and bleed

hundred years, hundred more
some day we may see
a woman king, bloodshot eye
thumb down and starting to weep

for woman kings who are also symbols, for bleeding women in battered armour who are also glimmering idols worshiped by thousands. for priest-queens and woman kings, who are the same.

There’s a hatred the gods have for solitary Calypso. And I know it well, from when I sent the man I loved back to the sea to his sadness. (x)

mythology series  the queen upon the heavenly throne hera [Ἥρα]

his crown lit up the way as we moved slowly
pass the wondering eyes of the ones that were left behind
though far away, we’re still the same 

howling ghost they reappear
in mountains that are stacked with fear
but you’re a king and i’m a lionheart

and in the sea that’s painted black
creatures lurk below the deck
but you’re the king and i’m a lionheart
