OK... Your most powerful experience with Ares?(If that's not a personal thing.)Think the closest I've come to the Greek Pantheon was getting prodded by Hermes and thwapped across the head by Helios.
The top several in the list are ones I don’t talk about on Tumblr, yeah.
Further down…okay. So I’ve mentioned before how despite the fact that he’d been around for a long, looooong time before that and had just been sort of (intentionally?) drowned out by Apollo, when I first approached Ares it was purely in a “okay so you’re in charge of my new career I should do the respectful thing and introduce myself to my new patron yes hello I am a person that exists in your general vicinity” sense.
In fact, I did the same with Athena first. And she….pretty much entirely ignored me. So I went “oookay well that’s never been my strong suit anyway I guess I’ll try with the other one I like him better anyway so there.”
Back in the day, Apollo was always my “favorite”. Far and away. My “awareness” of Ares in the mythology was in a sort of…”hey, why does everyone give that guy shit, his myths suck and they’re so biased, there must be more to him than that, the other gods should stop giving him shit about this stuff I mean he’s pretty much just doing his job, ugh rude.” So I don’t know if I’d call him a favorite, but he was probably second on my list. Not that I knew anything about them.
Okay flashback over, back to the introduction, I light a candle, give an offering, give my speech blah blah blah hello yes this is me introducing myself blah blah.
And I finish, and sit back.
And INSTANTLY a fucking WALL of emotions hit me in the face like a truck
distinctly not-mine and that’s hard to explain but yeah that’s a thing for me I can pick out emotions that are from outside sources one of the very very very few perks of an emotion-based god”phone”.
and in summary it was basically “yes good I knew you’d get here eventually this is right this is where you should be at this exact moment welcome to where you’re supposed to be welcome to us”
and apart from assorted omens that was the first direct communication I ever had with a deity
and it was…hard to put into words because emotion, but it was so certain, it was…absolutely assured of everything it was “saying”
that’s my thing
Okay so i thought i was weird because my “god phone” relied almost entirely on emotions. But thank you for making me feel not crazy.
15 year olds posting half naked photos in the pagan tag… *shakes my head*…
-shudders- That’s just…..kind of wrong.

I SAW THIS EPISODE AS A KID AND NO ONE BELIEVED ME WHEN I TOLD THEM ABOUT IT.
When a viking mistreats his lady, she may cut off his junk and hang it in her home.
- Women were in charge of the household’s money because they were believed to be magic and have the ability to see into the future.
- If a woman divorced her viking husband, he would be shamed for being divorced.
- Men weren’t even allowed to touch a woman’s hand if she had not agreed to it or he would be punished by law.
you were really cute until that offensive joke spewed out of your mouth: a guide to how to not be my future lover by me.
