    Damn it, I was hoping to mention Tyr first and not look like a copy cat :steam:

    Oh well...

    Anyhow, mythology.. has to be either Norse or Egyptian. I'd prbably like some of the Chinese or Japanese stuff but I only know the word Oni through Manga/ Anime so I can't really form an opinion.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Norse for me too. Hmm. Odin it is. In one of his poetic wise modes.

    I dunno, I have always found all mythology fascinating. I remember getting so many books out of the library as a kid on mythology. Started with Greek, moved onto Norse; those are the two I know the best (and I suppose I like Norse the better of the two).

    Have glossed over some Welsh/Irish myth, Russian myth, Assyrian myth, and African myth in the meanwhile, but more just like bits and pieces.

    I sort of veered into "personal" myth by the time I was in middle school, such as Tolkien and LeGuin and Lewis and other fantasy writers, and began working on my own ideas ten years ago or so. Gaiman's "Sandman" mythos is a favorite construction of mine.

    Not sure about a "favorite" creature from myth. I always loved some of the Greek stories (such as Daedalus). Orpheus is another great poignant story, one of the best -- such loss, combined with such heroic feat of bravery, thwarted in the end by Orpheus' humanity, resulting in tragedy. But I've always fascinated by symbols such as the unicorn or the minotaur or the medusa. The chimera is neat too, especially the way the word has been melded into medical lit nowadays to signify one of those rare individuals who is genetically two people.

    My favorite creatures are bears and ravens... so much that a pair of ravens were incorporated into the stories that my friend and I are writing, as sort of the "eyes and ears" of the Forgotten God and also us as the narrators.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I'd happily turn gay for Gaiman if he wanted me to. Or leg-hump him and ejaculate into his rug like a true INTP if that was more to his liking.

    I didn't really discover Sandman until recently through some randomly downloaded The Dreaming books. I knew of it, ofc, but I preferred novels, and loved American Gods, Good Omens etc. I hadn't realized the brilliance of the Sandman mythos. So now I have loads and loads of unread Sandman issues to look forward to.

    I love mythology, especially Egyptian & Greco-Roman!

    My favorites would have to be Thoth, Ptah, Apollo, etc

    Hermes, Horus, Heimdall, Pan

    "Horus then deliberately spreads his own semen on some lettuce, which was Set's favorite food (the Egyptians thought that lettuce was phallic). After Set has eaten the lettuce, they go to the gods to try to settle the argument over the rule of Egypt."

    I've won my share of arguments with this clever ploy.
