mythology meme | [1/5] OTPs

That night she came to me of her own free will, took off the disguise of daughter and lay down. Next morning she was queen of the dark.

Nothing last forever even if you’re a god and everything last forever. Demeter would have let the earth die if she didn’t get her daughter back, at least for half a year.

Next morning I watched her dress. Then she put my hand on her heart, kissed the nape of my neck as she liked to do, and disappeared.

Persephone is the goddess of the underworld and daughter of Zeus and Demeter, goddess of the harvest. Hades, who had fallen in love with Persephone, abducted her as she was collecting flowers on the plain of Enna. Altough Zeus had no objection to their marraige, Demeter was enraged and the earth longer prospered. Unable to ignore this any longer, Zeus sent Hermes down to Hades in a plea to release his daughter. Hades grudgingly agreed, but had tricked Persephone into eating six pomegranate seeds. Because she had consumed food in the Underworld, she was forever bound to it, forced to reamin there for one-third of each year.

persephone; "the one with the delicate ankles…was filled with a sense of wonder, and she reached out with both hands to take hold of the pretty plaything."

dread persephone

and when you have sailed through the river okeanos, you will see before you a narrow strand and the groves that are persephone’s - the tall black poplars, the willows with their rotten fruit…

she killed the king a long time back. he dared? he dared to touch her, take her, pose her like a doll on his hellish throne? perhaps he thought she would learn to love him and his gloomy kingdom. she killed him instead, and the kingdom of death bowed down low and now the gates of tartarus open only for her. 

she can’t remember how she did it. she’d like to think it was something artistic, something slow - poison, maybe, in his food, in his cup, in his sickly cloying pomegranate wine - but in her dreams, he dies screaming. 

it doesn’t matter, anyway. she killed the king and threw his body in the river. sometimes, on the riverbank, flowers bloom.

London, 1912 - Freya (Hawes) is the leader of a local suffragette group, fighting for the women’s vote; Evelyn (Cohu) is stuck in an unhappy marriage to Humphrey (Macfadyen), a politician who opposes it strongly. A docile wife at the beginning of the movie, a chance meeting with Freya turns into the trigger of her awakening, both to her own individuality and the situation around her.

Then Humphrey is found dead, a bullet in his chest.

While the police eye Evelyn for the murder - a strong suspect on account of the marital tension that in recent time has often led to loud arguing and even physical abuse - it is Freya who does everything in her power to free her friend from the charges.

In the end, the suffragettes ban all men from London and found an Amazon city state, burning all remnants of masculinity from their homes.
