Let’s Laugh At Mortals


Episode Two: Here we have a normal 16 year old mortal who has convinced another that she is Percy Jackson. It takes a very long time until the unknowing mortal realizes anything is amiss. Let us all laugh at this mortal hahahahaha.

CAN I JUST LOVE YOU?

You may love me.

Ships

Ships

Episode 1: The S.S Percabeth


Here you will find the biggest ship in Greek Mythology. The Queen Anne’s Revenge, more commonly known as the S.S Percabeth, was actually sailed by Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase on their adventures in the Sea of Monsters. This ironic fact has only made this ship bigger. Most decent human beings would agree that the S.S. Percabeth is one of the better ships. The S.S. Percabeth has experienced a first kiss under Mount St. Hellen, lots of arguing fueled by romantic frustration, a date that ended with retrieving Lord Hermes staff (but don’t tell anyone, that’s a secret), overcoming other ships, a separation for 6 months….oh and a little fall into Tartarus. 

Mythology Mondays: The Muse Euterpe ( Eὐτέρπη )
And we’re back with our fourth installment of this week’s Mythology Mondays! We’ll continue with the Muse of Song and Lyric Poetry Euterpe! Normally she’s really shy but I think her sisters convinced her to make an appearance! since her other sisters decided to invite themselves. Well, give me a second while I check outside!
Yep here she is! Euterpe! 
Hi everyone…
So I’ve heard that you’re one of the shyer Muses, yet your main role deals with something almost universal! As Muse of song and lyric, is it easier for you to express yourself through these mediums?
Yes, I find myself easier to communicate my inner thoughts and feelings through a musical and melodic medium…
We heard from your sister that you play the flute, some even say that you invented the aulos, or double flute. Which is why you’re often depicted with them right?
Yeah, but Erato wants me to branch out so I helped invent the harmonica a couple hundred years ago…
Woah! That was you? 
Haven’t you noticed how widespread the use of one is? It’s an easy instrument to learn and has so much diversity. It exemplifies how mortals perceive music and song.
The name Euterpe means “giver of delight” which seems an excellent name for the Muse that brings joy to the world through music. It is also appropriate given that your art can be understood by anyone who listens to it, regardless of language. 
  Thank you, it also brings me great joy to see others enjoy my domain. 
And I’m sure our viewers can agree that they’ve enjoyed music as well! Well I know you want to get back to your flutes and harmonicas so I think we can end our segment here! Thank you so much for dropping by Euterpe!
Thank you for taking the time to make this segment Pearl.
Alright viewers, next is Melpomene!

Mythology Mondays: The Muse Erato ( Ἐρατώ )
Hope all of you are enjoying the Mythology Mondays segments so far! From the strumming I hear I can only assume that’s our next Muse coming in the door! Hi Erato, how’s it going today?
It’s going really well! Calliope, Euterpe and I just had a really great jam session! 
I forgot! You three have a sort of band right? Calliope writes lyrics, You play the lyre—
Actually I recently switched to playing the guitar! It gets a lot less weird looks when I travel into the mortal realms! I hate messing around with the Mist so I’d rather just blend in the natural way.
Nice! And Euterpe plays the flute right?
Yep, we sounds pretty great if I do say so myself!
Well back to learning about you. The name Erato is most likely derived from the same Greek root as Eros, the god of love. Which makes sense since you’re the Muse of love poetry. 
But I’m so much more than that! I can also be the driving force that pushes mortals towards finding what they love. Not just in a relationship, but with life in general. Poetry is just the easiest way for me to help others express their different kinds of love. 
That’s so lovely! So you help others find their calling? Does that mean in some cases you also lead them towards your sisters who might be able to inspire them further?
Absolutely, I seem to be the most accessible of the nine, maybe Thalia and Terpsichore come close, but everyone has had experiences with love, desire, and caring. So if I can help them find their way to one of my sisters of course I’ll nudge them in that direction!
That’s true! Even Virgil himself called upon you in his Aeneid even though some of your sisters may have been a little more appropriate to the poem. 
That was indeed very flattering! And a great way to show everyone that history, epics, and tragedies can also have at their core an aspect or theme of love that can transcend and transform even the stuffiest of pieces. 
Wow Erato I don’t think I’ve ever heard you sound so serious!
Love is a serious business! And I hope that everyone can find something  to love as much as I love LOVE.
I hope our viewers understand that… Well Erato it looks like we’re nearing the end of our segment! I hope our viewers enjoyed learning about you! Next up is your sister Euterpe!

Mythology Mondays: The Muse Clio (Κλειώ)  
Hi Viewers! Pearl here, let’s continue our look into the Nine Muses by learning about the Muse of History: Clio! Oh I’m so sorry but it looks like I’m getting a text!
~Don’t start my segment without me -Clio ~
Well, it looks like we’ll be joined by the Muse herself! But until she gets here, let’s begin. Clio’s name is derived from the Greek word κλέω (kleo) which means—
To recount or make famous. Hey Pearl, where can I put my bag?
Oh, I didn’t think you’d get here so fast! There’s some room on the table over there! But if your bag is as heavy as it was last time I’d say leave it on the floor. 
Thanks… So did you get to tell them about how I inspire mortals? Because if you’re gonna spend this whole segment on history, this segment will be neverending
I was actually going to tell them about why your bag is so heavy. Clio is often represented as carrying a scroll or sets of tablets, or sometimes seated near a chest of books. Clio why is that?
It’s just easier for me to reference specific points of history when I have the accounts with me at all times. I’d rather carry them with me instead of having to leave and find the book or scroll I need. 
Okay, that makes sense! Clio is also often attributed with the ability to inspire mortals to write down, investigate, and give accounts of events. Is that what you were talking about Clio?
Yes, mortals don’t seem to take notice that when I’m inspiring them to write something down, it’s for a good reason. Unless they want history to keep repeating itself… How will people learn from each other if they’re not sharing what they experience?
You know that actually makes a lot of sense. Well moving on, Clio is also a mother of a Greek hero, Hyacinth, who was tragically killed when he was out with his lover the god Apollo. The mortals have honored him with a festival called the Hyacinthia, where they celebrate his death and ‘rebirth’ as the hyacinth flower. 
Hyacinth was much more than a mere lover of Apollo. Apollo was the one to change my son’s blood into the flowers that still bear his name, I know that Apollo still mourns his passing into Elysium. But as mortals say, that is history and I certainly cannot spend my time living in the past…
But aren’t you the muse of History? Shouldn’t that be what you focus on?
There is a difference between learning from the past and becoming stuck in the past. 
Is there anything else you want the audience to know about you Clio?
Only that everyone should remember that history is always being made and I will always be happy to inspire others to join me in my quest to preserve history.
And I’m sure they will! All right you guys, gals, and everyone in between, next we’ll look into the world of loooooooove poetry with Erato!

Mythology Monday: The Muse Calliope   ( Καλλιόπη )
Hiya Folks! I’m your guest host Pearl the Intern and I’ll be talking about the Nine Muses! since they can’t be trusted to talk about themselves
Calliope is the eldest of the Nine Muses and the muse of Epic Poetry—
Excuse Me? They didn’t need to know I was the oldest! 
Umm.. Calliope what are you doing? I’m trying to do a serious program here…
I’m here to make sure you don’t say anything too embarrassing about me! Looks like I got here just in time!
Umm… Okay, well as I was saying, Calliope is often portrayed as carrying a writing tablet—
ω Ζευ! I’m more modern than that! Clio bought me an electronic tablet for the Winter Solstice!
Yeah well it’s not like you know how to use it yet! So can you please let me continue? 
Fine
Calliope is also known for her famous sons Orpheus and Linus, both of whom obtained immortality upon their deaths. And according to some she had a brief relationship with the war god Ares…
What? Why are you looking at me?
Nothing! I just figured you’d have something to say about the rumors of you and Ares… 
Why would I talk about my private life to YOU? 
I don’t know, you’ve been talking to me this whole time anyways so I just figured you’d have something to say. But if you don’t then I’ll go on. In the portion of the painting above Calliope is seen holding the Odyssey, arguably one of the most well known Greek Epic Poems, that many believe she was Homer’s muse for writing both the Iliad and the Odyssey. 
Of course I was his muse! Did you think Erato or Euterpe woulc get along with that guy? i’m telling you, half the time spent inspiring him went towards convincing him that these poems would become popular! He had this crazy idea that writing down these poems was a waste of time since every bard around Greece knew the stories already! Mortals! They never think into the future and how important their actions really are!
Maybe it’s because we don’t live forever! How was Homer supposed to know his poems would last for thousands of years? Also, can you put the myth of whether or not Homer was blind to rest? 
You know I don’t really remember… I was quite busy back then, what with every Yannis, Demetrios,and Giorgios calling on me for inspiration! But at least back then they would call us by name! Nowadays whenever someone needs inspiration they call upon ‘a muse’ and all nine of us have to go check it out to see who can help the most! And—
ALL RIGHTY! Well I think that’s a good place to wrap up this episode! Tune in later as we learn more about Clio!
