This week Lore Olympus: Ri-dic-u-lous. Utterly ridiculous!
Oh right, the letter
"What on Olympus would possess you to ask this of me?" Idk Zeus, loneliness? Desperation for contact with the outside world / loved ones she can't see? What kind of question is that
Ohh the fun shot of the cracking / Persephone cracking as her hopes are crushed
"You really let Everyone down today with this" - now hold on Zeus, thats a lot of pressure and sole responsibility to put on Persephone alone especially since Your the one making the calls here. Really arent you the one letting everybody else down by not even considering to do the evaluation? Sounds like your projecting your own insecurities onto Persephone, Zeus.
But also that little caveat of "especially since Your so close" makes that comment even more harsh considering, how close is Persephone actually to living up to Zeus's standards? Its like hes adding that little barb in to give Persephone hope by saying she's "close" to being done but is she really? Probably not.
"But you make the rules" - see!
I like how Zeus immediately does a 180 like "yes I'm going to put the entire blame on Persephone and say its her fault for everyone not being able to go home" and then when she brings up a fair point - I.e: he makes the rules, he immediately goes "oh yeah, I do." And then uses said authority to go "yeah so what I say goes right? You failed" - classic lo Zeus
Pffft Zeus looks pleased as punch and Persephone ain't happy
"I call bullshit" - ayy Persephone going from stammering to standing up for herself
Why is zeus suddenly giant
What do you mean "used to living in the underworld" wasnt Persephone only there for a few weeks at most? Like before she traveled between school and work and for the trial I thought she was only there a few days or a week at most?
"Creepy caterpillar lashes" 😂
Persephone Swearing !!!!
Although Zeus does bring up a fair point - Hades may have moved on (I know Zeus is likely only saying this to be a jerk but the point does stand).
Also while I kind of understand persephones outburst is that really the best thing to say Persephone? Zeus does hold your fate in his hands and you know hes probably saying this to provoke you... If you curse at him hes likely going to use that against you even further... So while I get your angry, its probably not the best thing to say.
(Also you should probably consider the idea that Hades has moved on, even if you haven't. However painful, its still a potential reality) - at least for now.
No, no. Zeus has a point. She is not being mature nor has she learned to regulate her emotions. And its been a trying day but still, not the best reaction to have considering how zeus could react in turn.
I'm actually surprised Zeus didnt flip out at that
Persephone calling Zeus out.
Honestly they both make fair points here - persephone isn't responding very well but shes also right that Zeus hasnt always treated her fair and still isn't
Ohohohogoogohh "don't piss on my leg and tell me its raining" the Sass is coming out.
Although Persephone seems to still be wavering between trying to be polite (stuttering and being nervous) to completely blowing up in anger (shouting and swearing and not caring for the potential consequences that insulting Zeus may incur on her or anyone else) - again, zeus could Easily use this an an excuse to make the situation worse. But it also does suck that Persephone seems to have to walk on eggshells around Zeus, lest his temper come out over his fragile ego.
Finally!! A mention of Demeter! (She does deserve to come home)
Is... Persephone yelling her letter at Zeus?? What makes you think thats going to change his mind Persephone?
"Tits up" - I'll say
Hey are we Finally seeing the underworld??
... What do you mean you can't give it to him??
See even Zeus is admitting he made the situation worse... Growth??
Pffft who is this random satyr?? (I think their a satyr?) "Maybe if you let your brother have his nuptials with that pink broad") - oh I see Everyone is just gonna be passive aggressive
What happened to hades's face...
A ... Press conference??
When did Persephone have time to do that??
What is this welcome home banner... Did.. Hades think the trial was going to be fair and Persephone would be immediately moving in with him??
Pffft what is this portrait hades has (I bet he never did that for Minthe)
I mean... I guess that makes her a goddess of the underworld?? Does that mean that any god or goddess who filed to become a citizen would become a denizen / deity of the underworld then through filing paperwork?
I dont think it is a total gross misconduct Hades... I mean, does Zeus word mean nothing? He Is king of the gods after all. He does get to call some shots, even their bad ones.
So.. Wait... When is this conference happening - we had Zeus try to buy cigarettes and then immediately he was with Poseidon watching the broadcast - is this taking place in the past or like right now? Cause if its taking place right now why did Hades wait so long?
Why would you do this Hades??? Your fucking up your own economy / trade system / citizens to spite Zeus over not seeing Persephone?? Unless this is a one way thing where Olympus can't receive your goods but you can receive theirs??
Hestia?? What is this about a community center and Why is Apollo doing the honors?
Satyr guy is right. Lotta people suffering over a family squabble
Why is Eris allowed to talk to Persephone?
Eris is right, its Not persephones job to be a people pleaser / keep everyone happy all the time.
Alright who let Cerberus out?? (I guess dogs are exempt from said punishment??)
Also... What happened to zeus wanting to talk with Artemis?? I guess that convo didnt happen??
