Daily Deity #13 PrometheusHey, if you ever were curious as to how humans discovered fire, do the Ancient Greeks have a story for you!Daily Deity #13 Prometheus by mythgirl68
You can thank Prometheus here, who gave it to us... Oh, I'm jumping way ahead of myself.
But that's what this guy is really famous for right? The whole "bring fire to mankind and be punished severely for it." Ah, yeah, according to Greco-Roman myth, we owe this Titan a lot.
Let's start there. Titan. Not god. Titan. The Titans were before the main race of beings before the gods took over management. I heard that the business negotiations were a blood bath! Anybody? The Titan vs. God war? That let the gods take over... Ah, never mind.
So yeah, Titan. I swear, the Titans seem to have harder lineages to learn than the gods do. Granted, nearly every god is from Zeus so have the battle is over. But, Prometheus was the son of Iapetus. Now the next part is kinda odd, because Prometheus is always mentioned with his brother, Epimetheus, which is probably because of the whole Pandora thing.

The book was packed with legends of gods and goddesses and stories. I stopped reading when I heard the locals saying about a legend of a magical fig tree that was able to grant wishes!! The next day, people went out and searched for the tree. They searched for 2 weeks, but failed. I decided to go on a solo trip to find it for myself. I got the basic supplies, and head out into the desert.
I walked for 2 hours until I spotted something in the desert. I ran to it. As I got closer, it revealed to be the fig tree! I stopped running. The tree was glowing with sparkles. It had a rich abundance of decadent figs. I smiled at its grandeur. I could stare at it forever. Out of nowhere, a disembodied voice said, “Behold the Great Fig Tree! One who eats the figs, will FOREV
Daily Deity #7 Ariadne* First off, I would like to apologize for not posting a Daily Deity yesterday. I unfortunately had a family matter to deal with, and that comes first. *Daily Deity #7 Ariadne by mythgirl68
Now, I had originally planned for this Daily Deity to be about Cerberus, but I just finished translating a story about Medea (that's not as weird as it sounds, I take Latin) and that led me to think about other females and plans that fail. Well, more specifically: other females, plans that fail, disobeying their fathers, being dumped by a hero, and rescued by a god/godly force.
And actually, that narrows it down to several other female characters from all mythologies, but the first that came to my mind was Ariadne.
Ariadne appears in the Theseus story line. You might know, or remember from my first Daily Deity, that Theseus is the hero that slays the Minotaur. Ariadne actually plays an extremely large part in Theseus's success.
