ruffboijuliaburnsides: oatmealraisinbagel: I know tumblr really loves Persephone and Hades, which I get, but my favorite Greek Mythical figure has to be Ariadne.  Until this year I had pretty much only ever heard of her in the context of the Theseus and the Minotaur myth, but her story actually continues past that and I love it.  (Disclaimer, as with any Greek myth there’s a billion versions, but my favorite goes like this) Ariadne helped Theseus kill the Minotaur.  She had to betray her family, but she knew she had to in order to stop the yearly sacrifices.  Theseus promised her he would marry her as thanks for her help. Theseus and Ariadne left Crete together, but since Theseus didn’t trust Ariadne to be a good wife, he left her behind on Naxos while she was napping.  Why didn’t he trust her to be a good wife?  She had betrayed her family. While on Naxos, Dionysus, god of wine, fertility, madness, theater, and celebration, happens to stop by.  He meets Ariadne and the two fall in love. Dionysus marries Ariadne.  Note: There are plenty of retellings of this myth, but almost all of them emphasize how happy Dionysus and Ariadne’s marriage was. Ariadne is killed and goes to Hades. Dionysus descends into Hades to get his wife back.  Ariadne gets to join the gods in Olympus, become immortal, and takes her place as the goddess of the labyrinth, mazes, paths, fertility, wine, and passion. Meanwhile, Theseus dies after being thrown off a cliff by Lycomedes. Ariadne is practically the personification of “the best revenge is living well” and I think that’s great. this is good shit. : Same thing as yous Theseus. ARIADNE! What are YOU deing here? We're in THE UNDERWORLD. T got MURDERED raugh got thrown Oh, yeah, yikes. Me too, L+was was in though exile. ght off this It was cliff. Pretty bad.

queerpaccino: mystonerlife: misterpuffnpass: setbabiesonfire: kropotkindersurprise: January 15 2015 - Peaceful protesters on Martin Luther King day are pepper sprayed by Seattle police. [video] Dude’s just walking on his phone. Fuck police. Fuck government. This happened right in Seattle, that was a teacher from Garfield High School on the phone with his mother. He’s suing the city for $500,000 dollars. This was at the MLK peaceful march against Police brutality. It’s always be and well in Seattle. They actually just arrested an elderly black man in his 70s for walking Down the street using a gold club as a cane. Bitch ass cop said he swung it at her, but they finally released dash cam footage showing he didn’t. But no, of course the US isn’t a fascist, white-supremacist police state. Cuz you know. Freedom and democracy and stuff. : GHT RGNTS queerpaccino: mystonerlife: misterpuffnpass: setbabiesonfire: kropotkindersurprise: January 15 2015 - Peaceful protesters on Martin Luther King day are pepper sprayed by Seattle police. [video] Dude’s just walking on his phone.
