Greek Mythology/Hera/Mythology Interpretation

Those Insightful Greeks 4
    Greek mythology is very practically oriented.
Instead of glorifying the gods as others have done,
Greek deities were deliberately portrayed imperfect so
that humans would be able to learn from them. High and
mighty the gods may be, with great powers and beauty,
but they have challenges to overcome as much as the
rest of us, and as many times as not, they fail in
those.
The Power to Express
    Hera, the Queen of the gods is also one of the
most unfortunate among the Olympians. Coaxed by the
cunning thunder god Zeus into marrying her, she is
later subjected to a series of betrayals by her
husband. Moreover, she is never allowed to express her
disgruntlement properly. Each time she would try, the
mightiest of all gods would punish her. Forced to
suppress her pain of betrayal Hera resorts to
violence.
    She is perceived by the Greeks as the most
bothersome and cruel goddess of all. The heroes who
win her favor usually regret it later; the prophets
endowed with her gift of prophecy always preach doom
and gloom. Since the emotion of hurt is not able to
come out the right way, the goddess brings it into all
of her dealings. However well she means, she spreads
her pain around, sometimes even unconsciously. Her
case teaches us another important lesson. Many people
hold the erroneous belief that if they cannot fix the
situation that bothers them, there is no point in
expressing their feeling of upset.
    They should ask themselves then if there is a
point in keeping quiet, if that helps to resolve
anything. Sometimes, aside from false considerations of comfort,
the answer would be ‘no.’ As for
expressing the emotions, there is a very clear purpose
to it. Expressing them in the right manner lets those
feelings go. It vacates that space within which they
occupy, gives the freedom to think and concentrate on
the solution to the problem.
Proper expression makes
sure that wherever the person goes, he doesn’t
unintentionally carry the pain around. The great
goddess failed to learn that lesson, how about you?

War against the White Walkers

This is game of thrones like you’ve never seen it before!
The dragon queen has reclaimed her birthright/her 7 kingdoms. However in the cold cold North beyond the wall no one cares and no thrones are respected by The Others. Queen Daenerys seeks to unite with the Wildlings to defeat this icy enemy. Where her dragons have fire to wield the enemy has ice that threatens to freeze the soul.
Dany began serving the lord of light when she had a vision in the house of the undying instructing her on how to regain her lost love, her son and stars Drogo from the otherside. The lord of light had his own reasons for this, but aren’t mortals ever the pawns of gods?
R’hllor, the lord of light, the god of fire has a brother…the god of ice and they war just as do those in the mortal realms of ice and fire.
Khal Drogo restored to the body of a Dothraki cousin with very similar features takes his place at Dany’s side to conquer the 7 kingdoms but not all believe he is who he seems. Some believe he is the Khal returned and respect him, claiming to see lands beyond death in his eyes. Others believe alright, but they mistrust and fear whatever walks in the flesh of this Dothraki king. The dragons obey him as much as they do their queen mother, though so many listen and follow.
If not for the war with The Others, Daenerys and Drogo would have put to death many of their enemies but surviving Lannisters, Baratheons, Greyjoys, Freys, ETC front their army instead. Let them die a more productive death or live in service to their rightful rulers.
    Danger as well as new opportunities abound.
Your character/characters, canon or original alike could find a place for themselves in any of the following factions or in a league of their own.
Any of the noble houses:
Red Priests:
Black priests (Others born)
Followers of the faceless
Dragon caregivers who go to war along with the dragons to supply them with food, healing ETC,
Those who remain in King’s Landing to hold the throne for Dany andDrogo whilst they are away at war. (These must be trusted for they will surely deal with much intrigue)
Wildlings
Drogo’s followers/hangers on who are awestruck by his return and wish to learn from him.
Dothraki loyal to Dany and Drogo
Maesters
 and last but most terrifying, The Others themselves and their white walkers.
This is a pbm game. Many characters are available so don’t hesitate to ask. If you like someone who was killed in the series, this game is different and will consider a plot adjustment. Come and join the war.

One million easy ways to D.I.Y an awesome Gothic bracelet, bats, pentagrams and more

love jewelry. I love Gothic stuff and bats and witchy stuff and gargoyles and bats….and…and…and buying jewelry…oh and I also lean toward expensive tastes so while I do buy I don’t end up buying everything that I see that I feel would look simply charming on me.
In order to keep myself from pining away for want of all the expensive bracelets out there, I put my creative thrifty side to work. I may be creative and thrifty but I’m a bit lazy and tend toward impatient as well…so all my awesomely crafty ideas for Gothic and witchy jewelry are very easy to make. And when I say easy I mean easy…not the  way some others mean it when they say easy, and the more you watch their videos or read their how to’s the wider your eyes grow in incredulity that anyone thought that was easy!
My D.I.Y jewelry ideas are not that sort…they don’t require loads of pricy equipment that you don’t have or want to buy and they don’t take more than a few minutes to make while still looking expensive and well put together. You will spend 10 dollars aprox or less and your completed bracelet will look as though it easily cost 50. Cause that’s how we roll.
Check out my quick and easy videos of the various bracelets I did and leave me a comment if you end up making any for yourself or tag me on instagram at jekyllhydeclub
Each link has a brief description above  it so you’ll know what sort of bracelet you’re about to watch me tell you how to make.
Bracelets made from pendants that are pentagrams, bats for one and gargoyles for the other, awesome styles and look way more expensive. My personal favorites though it’s hard to choose.
   
Bat bracelet made from a necklace, very easy and awesome looking/not a charm dangle
Bat bracelet made from a metal bat loop back button, not a charm dangle
In which i turn a bat ring from spirit Halloween into one of the best bat bracelets ever, Victorian looking and most striking.
These are earrings that I turned into bracelets due to the fact, for me, their too large for earrings but make awesome good sized centerpiece dangle charms. One is black bat wings with a red stone, very Gothic and the other is a lovely example of Victorian, Steampunk Gothic with a claw holding a ball.

The Dark Side of Harry Potter

There are so many great characters in the Harry Potter series that could have been developed so much more than the were. Characters who were intriguing with depth to them, Regulus Black, Blaise Zabini,Aberforth Dumbledore, Millicent Bulstrode, and even Grindalvald himself just to name a few.
None of these characters got an action figure sadly, but there were some that did…also awesome and unsung characters that I would love to know more  about…I can at least share their action figure reviews with you, though and they are awesome to look at…Some may even call them fantastic beasts…and they’d likely get hexed for  their pains!
Check here for Kreacher, Griphook, Buck Beak and Kreacher…Yes I am aware I typed that twice…
