God of Wine Ariadng I completely fargat weren't immortal We need to fix that Theatre and Ritual Madness is the official ttle I +hink you Well decide laterSounds ike Plan And hey Theseus? what do be the goddes thinkin passion NIce job with the minotaur want to a let's now out Just get of here For Yes? ruffboijuliaburnsides oatmealraisinbagel I know tumblr really loves Persephone and Hades which I get but my favorite Greek Mythical figure has to be Ariadne Until this year I had pretty much only ever heard of her in the context of the Theseus and the Minotaur myth but her story actually continues past that and I love it Disclaimer as with any Greek myth there’s a billion versions but my favorite goes like this Ariadne helped Theseus kill the Minotaur She had to betray her family but she knew she had to in order to stop the yearly sacrifices Theseus promised her he would marry her as thanks for her help Theseus and Ariadne left Crete together but since Theseus didn’t trust Ariadne to be a good wife he left her behind on Naxos while she was napping Why didn’t he trust her to be a good wife? She had betrayed her family While on Naxos Dionysus god of wine fertility madness theater and celebration happens to stop by He meets Ariadne and the two fall in love Dionysus marries Ariadne Note There are plenty of retellings of this myth but almost all of them emphasize how happy Dionysus and Ariadne’s marriage was Ariadne is killed and goes to Hades Dionysus descends into Hades to get his wife back Ariadne gets to join the gods in Olympus become immortal and takes her place as the goddess of the labyrinth mazes paths fertility wine and passion Meanwhile Theseus dies after being thrown off a cliff by Lycomedes Ariadne is practically the personification of “the best revenge is living well” and I think that’s great this is good shit Meme
