    Default Who's your favorite Greek deity?

    The topic is what the title says. And I mean Greek, no Roman duplicates.

    I thought I'd have an answer, but I'm finding it's actually pretty hard to choose.

    Some represent neat things, while others have better stories. I guess Persephone, Prometheus, and Nemesis are some of the first that come to mind as favorites for me.

    I don't read a lot of greek mythology, but I always liked Hermes.

    I've always liked The Fates:
    • Clotho ("spinner") spun the thread of life from her distaff onto her spindle. Her Roman equivalent was Nona, (the 'Ninth'), who was originally a goddess called upon in the ninth month of pregnancy.
    • Lachesis ("allotter" or drawer of lots) measured the thread of life allotted to each person with her measuring rod. Her Roman equivalent was Decima (the 'Tenth').
    • Atropos ("inexorable" or "inevitable", literally "unturning", sometimes called Aisa) was the cutter of the thread of life. She chose the manner of each person's death; and when their time was come, she cut their life-thread with "her abhorred shears". Her Roman equivalent was Morta ('Death').


    Oh and my namesake Proteus!!
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Hephaestus. God of technology AND volcanos. Had family issues, too. A very relatable god.
