@caustixsoul has come forth: “You’re staring like you’ve never seen a god before.” - from eris to widowmaker if thats okay!
The assassin took hold of her sniper.
If there was one thing she learned was to never hesitate. And yet here she was, pausing at the visage of the other. Nevermind her words, the sniper’s stoic demeanor quickly shifted into that of confusion upon seeing the rather otherwordly-looking woman before her.
Was it a hallucination? Couldn’t be. As much as Talon’s intensive testing took its toll on her, as far as she knew, it was operational, and far from failing.
❝ What do you want? ❞ she spoke, somewhat monotonously. Yet still, some hint of annoyance could be perceivable on the way she seemed to refocus the nozzle of her weapon towards the other.
Another one trying to toy with her mind, she assumed. But she had about enough of that.
❝ Many have claimed to have godly powers, with words or not. They bring nothing more than suffering. You must be just like them... And frankly, I don’t care, you all will die the same. ❞
The mother’s boisterous laughter always somehow got to Atë. Even if it wasn’t about her.
The Trojan War was Eris’s greatest achievement of all time. The mortals might’ve blamed Helen of Troy and Lady Aphrodite for that bloodshed, but it was obviously well known amongst the Discordii that it was their mother’s craft. It was sung about in their history books and their feasts, and if you ever asked a Discordian about their doted mother, such a tale would be the first thing you’d hear.
Eris was the highest goddess in their eyes. The Trojan War merely set an example of power— a standard by which all her children hoped to achieve. They were all racing against time, racing against eachother, to create tragedies even remotely close to that war. And the prize? A single, precious drop of love from their glorious mother.
Such was the dream for a Child of Eris. But not for Atë... What should’ve made her heart swell with pride and bow at Eris’s feet instead pained her. Would her fate as the goddess of folly be inevitable? Was she bound to achieve a horror like that of the dreaded war? There was the tragedy upon Olympus long ago, but...
She didn’t want to think about it.
Atë’s voice was gentle, but stoic. “I understand, Mother... But must you keep all the blame on Lady Aphrodite? In the end, you did influence her with the Apple.”

Random Generator || Not Accepting || Draw: Eurydice, to Apollo: I've got a bad feeling about this
Something wicked most have come over him to even entertain an idea so idiotic that he gave into it. His better judgement warned him against letting his playful aura coax him into this negligent scheme but Apollo ignored all warning signs for the sake of cradling his beating heart.
Waves nipped at the ends of taloned feet and progress shown in his lack of flinching but subtle progress wasn't something he could ever be satisfied with. The flames that typically framed golden feathers had long since dimmed in the face of the sea and as a hand carded through bright locks the harpy wore a smile sporting confidence it had no business bragging about. "I've always wondered what it would be like and you're the perfect excuse to learn." There's a ... hesitance to his tone that he attempts to hide behind a grin and a self serving line of pride.
His feet might as well of sank in the sand with how reluctant he was to take a step further into the water.
"I've got a bad feeling about this ... "
It triggers a snort from the harpy and he's grateful her comment drew attention away from his blatant fear. "What's there to fear? You're the perfect teacher and if anything were to happen to me you'll save me, won't you?"

La Muerte sat prim and properly at the homey little table in the nymph’s cozy little abode amongst the heat and swell. It reminded her of a certain realm that belonged to someone she wished not to think of ever again.
That man’s candle flame has been long snuffed to her.
Hands are sat still within her lap, gilded eyes watching the woman rather curiously as she happily, and kindly, prepared a meal for her. Such a modest little dinner, nothing compared to the kind of feasts she was used to, but, that wasn’t a bad thing. It felt all the more intimate - personal.
“Gracias,” La Muerte would thank before taking a few bites politely. Everything about the meal could be said simply; it was warm. It was a true, home-cooked meal made with love and passion. La Muerte could tell this one held a lot of talent and drive in her.
She almost reminded her of a certain woman back in San Ángel.
When Eurydice would ask her question, La Muerte would offer a kind, saccharine smile. “It’s very delicious. You’re an excellent cook, florita. You really didn’t have to do any of this, but, I appreciate it. You must love cooking a lot, don’t you?”

“What’s that?” Sarah would ask, shoving in the giant spider into her mouth with a soft crunch between her teeth.
Her eyes were wide, full of childish ignorance and alight with mirth as she continued to just chow down on the insects crawling about. Completely unaware of the implications of her actions or what Big Words like that even mean.

Aphrodite merely raised a brow over at Theseus emerging from the bathroom. “Don’t look at me. I tried to warn you about over drinking last night...” Aphrodite gave a tut.
She didn’t REALLY warn him too much, because, well, she sort of wanted to see how Dionysus and Zagreus would fuck with Theseus once he was out cold.
Those boys were MENACES when surrounded by drunken, passed out college students.
It’s why Aphrodite always liked holding the parties at HER place.

Did he have all of Greece's attention? Good.
"Ho I doubt anyone could look away with such an irresistible display of persuasion! They've a way with their body that most would find in words and I must say ... they've caught my attention more than once." His eyes fall shut as the silhouette of the aforementioned charmer appeared vividly within his mind. A smile etched into the King's otherwise stern expression, only giving way to his mood by his jolly tone.
"Yes, they fascinate me more often than not. My eyes are often trained to the stories those hips could tell." Olympus’ King trials off as he slips into a deep thought—fantasy, more like. “And dare I say they’re no stranger to attention in the slightest!”

A low hum emits from the goddess as his lips press against her wrist, her hair flowing with ease about her to show her content.
Ah ... He was always such one to feed her delicious affections!
Lashes flutter in innocence, lips pouted as she played up her melancholy - which, truthfully, was far from genuine. But, of course, she was merely here looking to get coddled.
This was a two way street, after all!
“Oh, dearest Theseus, you would not BELIEVE the amount of women who hold such vicious envy toward me! They can be SO cruel to me ... Even as I offer them help, you know! I’ve been spat right in my face! Having tried SO HARD to help someone who came to me in need, and in repayment I get scorned!”
A low whine - a pout.
“I needed the reminder that I at least have such faithful devotes like you... You NEVER betray me, Theseus! I always offer you the upmost care, do I not?” Another blink of her lids, taking a hold of his hand now in turn to return his kiss with one of her own onto his palm.

A chuckle bubbles as he sets himself upon the coast's rocky shore, golden tail waving within the edges of the sea as she spoke. "Buttering me up?" Teasing happened to be a trademark of his but his eyes finally fell on hers with a cant of his head and that alone made them widen just a bit. Anyone who rivaled the sea's people were people to be wary of and that lesson had been drilled into the merman's head ever since he could talk but not even potential dangers could deter his curiosity.
She was stunning! It didn't really matter what species he was to be mindful of, a beautiful face was worth talking to.
"And here I thought I'd seen it all." His hair fell to rest at his back, golden locks curling due to the sea's gentle touch. "If I don't get your name it'll drive me crazy because I'm certain I'll only leave here dreaming of you."

« take my sword, and do try not to stab yourself in the foot. » For Theseus from Zag
Zagreus barely finished his line before the Champion could let out the loudest, most annoyed of scoffs.
Truth be told, he’s been fascinated by the fiend’s arsenal for quite some time, now. He came by with a different weapon everyday, each one of them more powerful than the one before, and he would’ve loved to try to use one of them that jab made him change his mind immediately.
His pride can be a curse, sometimes.
“Why would I need that old piece of metal when my spear and my shield could rival the Gods’ finest weapons?” he grumbles, crossing his arms “You better keep that close. The residents of Elysium woudln’t hesitate to attack a daemon like you, armed or not.
The least you can do to is giving them a proper fight instead of bore them with an easy battle.”
@caustixsoul asked : “All right, all right! If you’re so against it, then we can work together to sabotage our own wedding!” Theseus and Cass :) ( interaction prompts // accepting ).
"you’re king theseus, just say you had a change of hearts! say one of my sisters beauty has gotten to your head. I can tell you which of them would be most suitable, just tell me what you want in a wife.” it would at least get one other away from here. if she had to do this song and dance with every suitor coming for her, then so be it.
cassandra hesitates for a moment, simply looking at theseus, trying to decide what kind of man stands before her. not that it really mattered that much. “look, I am definitely the worst choice. have you not heard that apollo cursed me with madness?” or at least that is what people say, certainly she is cursed though. “your court would probably come to hate me, your people too. so I am against this marriage for your sake too.”

but I think there is more to them. there is more underneath all that shine and glory. a gentle heart, perhaps even a romantic one. anyway they are a pain in the arse, but what can I say. I always had an exceptionally cruel taste in people.”

There's a bit of irony lying between them and it does bring a rather notable grin to Apollo's lips. "Fall out of love with you? You'll live a long life then, I'm certain." Called to the sea foolishly one day he was lucky it hadn't been a SIREN'S call. The crashing waves and vicious sea always challenged his flames—its natural enemy. Never daring to get too close he took his first steps near the coastline without hesitation that day. It was absolutely foolish, thinking back on it but thankfully the source of that voice was nothing other than friendly.
As well as gorgeous.
Again and again he came searching for the mermaid that charmed him and day after day he stole hours of her time, if she would let him. Hours spent admiring the light in her eyes and shine of her smile anytime he could bring it out of her—and oh how her voice soothed him. Word by word he slip further and further down a tunnel he was all too familiar with.
Although love tended to end bitterly for him.
"I knew what I was getting into long before this moment, Eurydice. The moment I chose to return to you after stumbling across you the first time, my fate was already sealed. Every second I spent with you from that day forward was another day I fell for you and tomorrow will be no different, I assure you." The harpy once afraid to even glance at the ocean for too long now stood barefoot in its presence, letting the waves rush along his feet as he called out to her.
"If I steal you from the ocean now, I'll be sure to make it regret ever letting you go."

"You know, if we're to commit to this bit I think I'm deserving of some pet names." Resting on the edge of her bed with a hand combing through golden locks that rivaled the bright atmosphere Asphodel had too offer. A delicious aroma drew him closer to the little kitchenette she currently stood at but remained parked in his cushioned spot just a few minutes longer. Every second thus far spent pulling a smile out of the shade beside him, putting her in good spirits as he often made a habit of.
It all just felt natural.
"Sweetiepie, Honey, Darling—you fancy any of those?" Apollo cracked a grin and while his suggestions weren't necessary, he did want to hear her honest opinion—joke or not. "If we keep that up I'm sure we'll be the talk of the Underworld soon enough. We'll have fake popularity and fans that adore our witty dynamic and perhaps the music we make together will even move that stubborn uncle of mine." He was exaggerating, he knew, but where was the fun in staying realistic? So long as they were entertaining this silly little charade, he might as well take off with it.
With his ego he rose, unable to resist peeking inside what she may have been stirring up. Careful steps led him around her, leaning on the counter to give himself the pleasure of observing her whilst talking her ear off.
Innocent eyes flicker back up to her. "And maybe I should— ! " A thought cut short by the rather domestic scene set up in front of him. Light eyes stared at a pair of stained lips and all froze under her influence. Tongue gliding across lush lips and captivating the Sun effortlessly and putting a stop to his senseless jests.
Surely she had done something so simple around him time and time again, hadn't she? Yet this was the first time it caught his attention so abruptly. "Hm. " Is all that makes it out while he's lost in thought. Teeth sink into his lower lip before he finally catches himself and fist rose to cover what trace of curiosity was left upon his lips. Clearing his throat to help bury the evidence he remained silent and turned to gaze about the rest of her humble abode, a little flustered but he chose not to sweat over it.

"A dance with you? How could I refuse?"
The God's steps were heavy and stiff in comparison to what the dance ultimately required but his optimistic attitude kept many negatives from getting under his skin. A smile suggests Ares is not only pleased with his own efforts but with his current dance partner, eager to pick his brain for as long as he had her.
"Do tell, what mysterious ploys lie just beneath the surface of this innocent little number we're indulging in? The very moment you step foot into the presence of man or god alike the room falls victim to an ominous chill and naturally, my heart begins to beat. May it be true that your desires are often selfish in nature but the aftermath of such a decision only increases the chances of War, which has only been a friend to your line of work, I must say."
An arm lay lightly along her waist, the other raised to fit her hand in his own. "Every moment our eyes meet I am filled with glee, the anticipation consuming me. I'm a fan of surprises, you see, and you are always full of them."

There's a moment of confusion that washes over him as he took a moment to process what she had just relayed to him, eyes subtly scanning the area quickly in hopes of finding the poor sap before they inevitably find her again. His lips separate for a second and then tighten into a smile once he realizes the possibilities he's left with.
She wants to make him envious, does she?
"Oh, it'll be my honor. Just make sure he's looking and follow my lead." A hand searched for hers while his thumb ran along the backside. With how gentle he made every movement and how tender he made every glance, one might have thought the world stopped when he looked at her. Her knuckles were brought to his lips and he made sure to let it linger just a second longer before letting it fall at his waist.
There wasn't a better choice of partner on earth, he thought—even if it was just an act. The smile he wore has melted into one of pride, already complimenting himself on a job well done before he's even finished. Apollo's tone died down to a whisper and he could hardly contain his enthusiasm. "Think he got a good look?"

how did her little trick work again? it’s been years since she had to use her ability to fake cry on command ( a great gift if you were a little sister like her ). she is tearing up, giving a rather pathetic little sniffle “I thought... that we are already friends, king? are you saying you do not care?”
of course she can barely finish the sentence without starting to giggle, quickly hiding her laughter behind her hands “ ‘m sorry. ‘m sorry, I had to! hate to break it to you, but we are friends.”
I mean. at least cass thinks they are friends. they are fun to write, because both are usually rather deflective - theseus with his pride and ego and cass with her her cynical attitude. you’d think that’s a combo ready for disaster but they work surprisingly fine as friends, even though they to bicker and have arguments.
but I adore their softer moments, the moments where walls somewhat drop, when they talk about the reality of their pasts. how that helps them seeing eye to eye, or at least, trying to understand the other despite extremely different lives lived.

YEAH BABY! Alright admittedly I have really grown to like these two together because their interactions are always so sweet and so lively I love it. Apollo really loves being in her company and she just indulges him in most anything, it’s perfect! I mean who else is going to let him twirl them around and sing out of the blue? She’s a gem!
Not only that but he really just ... connects with her. She’s just a soul he could really fall into, get to know, and even hold dear. Apollo may be vain and come on a little strong but he’s full of love! Eurydice is a name that brings him peace and sparks a child-like sense of joy within him. His visits may steadily increase if she keeps it up because whenever he’s with her she really makes it hard to leave. She’s become his home away from home, of sorts!
