Fleetwood Mac - Sisters of the Moon [listen]

Some call her sister of the moon,
Some say illusions are her game.
They like to wrap her in velvet.
Does anyone, ooh, know her name?

A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide. They are sometimes associated with perilous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks and drownings. In other folk traditions (or sometimes within the same tradition), they can be benevolent or beneficent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans.

Ghosts
"The ignorant frighten children with ghosts, and the better educated assure them there is no such thing. Our understanding may believe the latter, but our instincts believe the former; so that, out of this education, we retain the terror, and just believe enough to make it very troublesome whenever we are placed in circumstances that awaken it."

MODERN ARES - a mix for the god of war who still walks the earth, picking fights from city to city and earning new scars with a bloody smile; no lover lasts, because this god only knows how to break. Ares, grown weary of war yet craving it all the same - and so time passes, but never fast enough.

GREEK MYTHOLOGY MEME | [1/6] GODS: DIONYSUS

Dionysus is the son of the god Zeus and the mortal woman, Semele (daughter of Cadmus of Thebes). Semele is killed by Zeus’ lightning bolts while Dionysus is still in her womb. Dionysus is rescued and undergoes a second birth from Zeus after developing in his thigh. Zeus then gives the infant to some nymphs to be raised. His love and marriage to princess Ariadne is one of his most famous myths.

Atalanta, in Greek mythology, was a renowned and swift-footed huntress, a favorite of goddess Artemis. Abandoned in the wilderness as a baby, a she-bear suckled her to health, and she was later raised by hunters. She swears an oath of virginity to Artemis but is forced to marry when reunited with her father. Her marriage to Melanion is a short one and ends with the pair transformed into lions as a result of laying in a sacred temple of the gods.

GREEK MYTHOLOGY MEME | [3/7] MORTAL MYTHOLOGICAL FIGURES: ARIADNE

Ariadne was the daughter of King Minos of Crete and half sister to the Minotaur Asterion. When greek hero Theseus came to Crete to slay the Minotaur, she fell in love. So strong was her love for the hero, she aided Theseus in both the slaying of the Minotaur and escaping the Labyrinth where the monster was imprisoned. She consulted the man who built the maze, Daedalus, and helped Theseus escape the maze with a ball of string. She left Crete with Theseus believing he was to marry her, but the hero abandoned her on the island of Naxos. Overcome with grief and close to death, the god Dionysus came to her rescue, fell in love, and married her. In  death she was made into a constellation.
