    Θυμάμαι ακόμα την πρώτη φορά που είπα

    τέρμα δε θα γίνομαι για σένα χαλί

    για σένα χαλί ή μήπως χάλι;

    Όχι πως η διαφορά είναι μεγάλη.

    I spent the afternoon in the dusty courtyard grounds. The palace sat on the island’s highest point, held up against the blue of the sky, and the view was pretty, despite the shabbiness. As I sat, I tried to remember all that I had heard of Lycomedes. He was known to be kind enough, but a weak king, of limited resources. Euboia to the west and Ionia to the east had long eyed his lands; soon enough one of them would bring war, despite the inhospitable shoreline. If they heard a woman ruled here, it would be all the sooner. When the sun had set, I returned to the hall. Torches had been lit, but they only seemed to increase the gloom. Deidameia, a gold circlet gleaming in her hair, led an old man into the room. He was hunched over, and so draped with furs that I could not tell where his body began. She settled him on a throne and gestured grandly to a servant. I stood back, among the guards and a few other men whose function was not immediately apparent. Counselors? Cousins? They had the same worn appearance as everything else in the room. Only Deidameia seemed to escape it, with her blooming cheeks and glossy hair.

    A servant motioned to the cracked benches and tables, and I sat. The king and the princess did not join us; they remained on their thrones at the hall’s other end. Food arrived, hearty enough, but my eyes kept returning to the front of the room. I could not tell if I should make myself known. Had she forgotten me?

    But then she stood and turned her face towards our tables. “Stranger from Pelion,” she called, “you will never again be able to say that you have not heard of Deidameia’s women.” Another gesture, with a braceleted hand. A group of women entered, perhaps two dozen, speaking softly to each other, their hair covered and bound back in cloth. They stood in the empty central area that I saw now was a dancing circle. A few men took out flutes and drums, one a lyre. Deidameia did not seem to expect a response from me, or even to care if I had heard. She stepped down from the throne’s dais and went to the women, claiming one of the taller ones as a partner.

    The music began. The steps were intricate, and the girls moved through them featly. In spite of myself, I was impressed. Their dresses swirled, and jewelry swung around their wrists and ankles as they spun.

    They tossed their heads as they whirled, like high-spirited horses.

    Deidameia was the most beautiful, of course. With her golden crown and unbound hair, she drew the eye, flashing her wrists prettily in the air. Her face was flushed with pleasure, and as I watched her, I saw her brightness grow brighter still. She was beaming at her partner, almost flirting. Now she would duck her eyes at the woman, now step close as if to tease with her touch. Curious, I craned my head to see the woman she danced with, but the crowd of white dresses obscured her.

    The music trilled to an end, and the dancers finished. Deidameia led them forward in a line to receive our praise. Her partner stood beside her, head bowed. She curtsied with the rest and looked up.

    I made some sort of sound, the breath jumping in my throat. It was quiet, but it was enough. The girl’s eyes flickered to me.

    ohhh shit as a classics student my brain is ROTATING. i need to incorporate ideas and motifs from greek mythology into my work IMMEDIATELY

    #re: the jeff the minion lore #also this is roman history but i still think that theres interesting parallels between ex and the emperor augustus #ik that sounds like a shitpost but there are certain ideas and principles that crop up and theyre INTERESTING. unintentional as they are. #like that idea of 'reforming' oneself after early years of bloodshed but it still all goes back to maintaining a public image #ACTUALLY WAIT. YO. theres so much you could do on the metafiction side of things #like. dionysus being the god of theatre and ex potentially being more affected by audience perception #since he's like. actually fictional. you could play with those motifs. #ik im absolutely insane please talk to me about greek mythology

    Growth Stories Series: Didn't have time to blog during #Covid19

    Growth Stories Series: Didn’t have time to blog during #Covid19

    It’s weird, but I haven’t blogged for almost a year now. I can’t just blame covid19 for this: I was pretty busy scaling the Orfium team. As you probably already know, if you follow my blog for the last few years, I am currently serving as the CTO of Orfium, which is quite challenging. This company has been through many faces, and it’s still growing in a highly fast-paced mode. Keeping up with…

    I am like the water when thy ship roll’d in that night Rough on the surface, but thou cut’st through like a knife And if we were not bound by fate, Never would have known from the look on thy face Lost in thy current like a priceless wine

    Life was a willow and it bent before thy wind Head on the pillow, I could feel thee stealing in As if thou wert a mythical thing, A chalice from the palace or a champion ring There was one prize I would die to win

    Wait for the signal, I shall meet thee after dark Down by the tree where thy name and mine are carv’d Now we two are bound by fate Belike I might have known from the look on thy face Every facade was a work of art
