AKILIANO: The Beginning

MYTH: In the beginning there was nothing, an endless black void. All the particles and matter in the void just floated. This was the reality for roughly 25,000 years until a particle collided with another one and so on and so forth. Roughly 18,000 years later a rough shaped, human-like creature was formed, being the only living creature so far, the new creation named itself Akiliano. Akiliano had no gender, race, etc. and was not like any 21st century human. Akiliano had a head with eyes, a nose, ears, and a mouth, but Akiliano had no legs or arms because they were unnecessary because Akiliano’s body was made for void travel. Akiliano didn’t need air and while it could speak it didn’t need to, Akiliano was bored so it wandered the void looking for a companion to express itself to but it could not find anyone, so it figured it would make someone itself. So Akiliano took a but if itself and formed what would be called a woman she would be the first woman, Akiliano wanted her to be perfect so that is how she was; perfect. Akiliano named her Amdis and Akiliano was pleased with her so her took her and wrapped in a cocoon so she could grow and Akiliano waited, and waited until she lived. Akiliano had gotten smaller creating amdis but Akiliano was happy anyways.

When Amdis was “born” she couldn’t breathe and Akiliano panicked and wrapped its body around her and his body became the earth. When Amdis awoke everything was formed around her, trees, animals, light and dark, and she was scared because even though she had only been alive a little while she had always had Akiliano to protect her and now she was alone. Akiliano was not dead but its spirit lived above in a paradise that it would call home and where it could watch its creation thrive, but when Akiliano looked down at Amdis she did not seem happy and that upset Akiliano so it made her a new companion which would be the first man. His name was jalis and he fell in love with Amdis but Amdis did not fall in love with Jalis, she missed Akiliano and wanted nothing to do with anyone else. Akliano tried again and again but Amdis stood her ground and refused to love anyone else. Akiliano wanted her to live on earth, but Akiliano also wanted her to be happy so Akiliano killed her which broke its heart but her spirit was sent to paradise and Akiliano and amdis were reunited. After a while everything was peaceful, humanity was thriving and Akiliano and Amdis were happy but AMDIS WANTED CHILDREN SO THEY HAD CHILDREN; TWIN GIRLS NAMED MARIEN AND mERLA, MARIEN WOULD BE THE SUN AND MERLA THE MOON. aKILIANO AND aMDIS HAD ANOTHER CHILD, THIS TIME A BOY HIS NAME WAS Syed, he never fit in with his other family members because he wanted nothing to do with his parents’ paradise or his sisters’ jobs  and he was fascinated what would happen if his parents’ creations stopped living, so he declared that he would leave paradise and roam the world finding his own paradise,. that broke his parents’ hearts and they wanted him to be happy and live his life the way he wanted so they gave him a cave deep in the center of the earth which most now know as hell. Syed was pleased and before he left he asked his parents if he could take human life, they said yes but they wanted to make sure there were guidelines for death. They were:

1. If a human is deathly ill you may take them after their sayings of goodbye

2. You make take a soul when a person becomes old and can no longer carry out their duties

3. If a person wants to die you must be reluctant and if they so choose to die you may take their soul

Those were the rules that Syed promised to uphold and he also promised that no one would suffer in his paradise, his parents watched him leave, and they were sad but now everything in the world was in order, the sun would rise and fall and so would the moon, humanity was thriving, Syed was pleased with his new life, and Akiliano and Amdis still live their peaceful lives in paradise.

Two Goddesses Creation Story

MYTH: In the beginning, there was an endless void. In this void lived two goddesses.

One was of darkness, who took the name of the void. The other of light, who took the name Eve, out of the future that was to come. Void tired of living in the nothingness with Eve, and decided to create something in order to fill the darkness. She created a dark, massive orb made up of dark, lifeless water.

Eve thought the water seemed unpleasant, and created many beautiful fish to live in it. Void was angry with eve for interfering with her creations, and, starting from the core of the water, created dry, cold ground. She did this without any regards for the fish, which resulted in many of them being killed.

Eve was unfazed, and saw potential in the earth. She pulled out one strand of her long, shining hair and cut it into pieces. She then sprinkled the pieces across the ground, creating the grasses, trees, flowers, and other plant life. Void was now furious, and created tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and other disasters in order to destroy Eve’s creations. Eve quickly shielded her creations from the vicious weather by creating sunshine and peaceful showers upon the earth.

Now, Eve decided to create animals to roam the earth and skies. She began with small, beautifully patterned and colored songbirds, to bless the trees and skies. Out for revenge, Void created large and forceful prey birds, who snatched the birds straight out of the skies as they flew. Even was discouraged, but went on, and created peaceful plant eaters such as deer and rabbits. Void then created stealthy predators such as wolves to eat of the flesh of the animals Eve had made. Finally, the two agreed to work together in their creation, and created humans to build upon the planet and make creations instead of them. Eve created their birth, their strength, their intelligence, and their kindness and empathy. Void created their deaths, their illness, and their vanity, anger, and sadness. They each sent one of their eyes out, Eve’s the sun and Void’s the moon, in order to keep watch over the planet as they set out to fill the rest of the void with more creations. And that is how the Earth came to be.

The Big Fish Five Theory

MYTH: In the beginning there was an endless sea. Somewhere far off existed a sky, but it contained only darkness. While the sky would eventually become essential, it is, at this point in time, unimportant, so we set our focus back upon the aforementioned sea. Within it lied no earth or air, only two fish. One could easily pay attention not to the sacred creatures, but those who do will find that they were like no other fish to pass through existence. By appearance they appear to be those of koi, but larger. Much, much larger. They were so massive, that their eyes were the size of the sun that had yet to step into existence. Although there were no days, weeks, months, years, or any time at all, one can assume that the swim beholding just the two fish lasted billions of years. Koi-Oi and Nishikigoi, the two astronomical fish, continued to go on like this until one fateful moment, in which the universe was changed forever.

As the two fish prepared to pass each other by, a sudden urge to high-five his buddio crept into Koi-Oi’s head, as he was proud of Nishikigoi’s swimming abilities. As they swam nearer and nearer to each other, Koi-Oi’s desires to high-five his friend only increased. These feelings were unknowingly shared, as Nishikigoi also thought a high-five would be quite nice. As they continued to creep nearer to each other, Koi-Oi knew he could not wait any longer or he would miss out on this opportunity. He shouted over to his buddy,

“You are such a good swimmer! I’m proud of you, man! High-five!” The fishes’ fins met for a fleeting moment in the first high-five. This event completely changed the course of history. The collision caused mucus coating Nishikigoi and Koi-Oi’s fins to fly off in all directions. Every planet, star, comet, animal, human, and individual particle came to be because of this cosmic high-five.   

Koi-Oi and Nishikigoi had now completed their duty and were able to assume a state of rest. They peacefully faded away into another universe, but not without leaving their mark on this one. Pisces, although believed to be a sign of many other things, is left in remembrance and to  honor Koi-OI and Nishikigoi.

Now that you have learned this story, you may look into a starry night and see not only stars, but the place where our sacred fish once resided.

MYTH:
Once there was nothing but two types of matter, Dark Matter and Light Matter. Dark matter was made of all the evil in the the the Galaxy and Light Matter was made of all the Good in the world. One day a blob of dark matter started to wiggle and rumble. Four light years later the blob of dark matter wiggled so much the first god was born, THE GOD OF DARK MATTER, NON-BARYONIC Because of this the GOD OF TIME GOTTFRIED was born. This was new Non-Baryonic so of course like anybody would, he rammed into Gottfried. The two god flied back because right then and there the first star was made.

300 light years later Gottfried wanted revenge on Non-Baryonic so he wanted to get the help of other gods which were generated over the years. So Gottfried made a paradise like place and named it Pastoral.

After 2 trillion light years later Gottfried successfully attracted Five gods, Genero The god of genders, Stella The Goddess of Stars, Aerosol the god of Clouds, Batong the god of Elements and Clade the God Of Animals. After they got to know each other they all fused. After that other gods saw this and wanted to fuse too.

So after 300 years later  Gottfried had all of the Light Matter gods and all the gods fused together and created the ultimate god, MUSIK THE GOD OF FUSION. Now that all the gods had all fused with Gottfried… It was time to fight Non-Baryonic… But it took Musik 700 trillion light years to get to him.

But once Musik got to Non-Baryonic the two had the biggest fight ever. Every time Non-Baryonic punched Gottfried face it made a new day, Non-Baryonic punched Gottfried’s face seven times. And every time Non-Baryonic bit Clade’s arm a new animal was made! And every time Non-Baryonic kicked Batong’s arm it made a new element! And every time Non-Baryonic Hit any part of Musik that was the part of the according god it made a new whatever.

Finally, Non-Baryonic rammed into musik one last time using all of Non-Baryonic power and… that is what made the universe and why there are no more gods.

NAME: Aidyn T
TITLE: Axis & Premula, the creation of the Rose

MYTH: Axis was born into the Spartan army and only ever thought of himself as a strong, disciplined, loyal warrior, just like his Spartans brothers. He had almost superhuman strength, agility, and stamina though; and that made his generals, commanders, and allies afraid of him. He surpassed everyone in combat and fought in the bloodiest of battles, returning from them with only a few cuts. Axis had short, brown hair and Hazel eyes when he first started going into battles. As soon as you saw him, you could tell he was mischievous at times and loved to have fun. But with every village he helped pillage, and every battle won, he grew colder. His hair grew longer, and his eyes grew darker. He started to look more and more menacing, and angry at the world. His emotions grew more distant. Soon, all he knew was his rage and his want to survive every fight.

One day as Axis and his allies were taking over a town, he saw a woman. She was standing on the side of the street watching her people being killed, and she seemed to be stuck in shock. All of a sudden, it was like a switch was flipped. Axis felt the need to protect her. This new feeling of his hit him full force and it stunned him for a second. He had never felt this before, because the people he was closest to had never needed to be protected, they were ready to die for Sparta. “I can’t let her die” he thought to himself, and before he knew it, he had sprinted over towards her and tackled his Spartan allie who was about to stab her. His allie pushed him off, quickly got up, and yelled “traitor!” as he charged. Axis, who was still getting up, couldn’t dodge out of the way. Next thing he knew, a spear had gone through his gut. He had felt the pain, but strangely, he didn’t feel himself dying. Well, at least what he thought it would feel like. Instead, he felt fine. He still had all of his strength. Now he could feel his rage take over. He reached down, broke the spear, and pulled himself off. He watched as his former allies face contorted into horror, and Axis bared his teeth. He lunged at the Spartan, grabbed him, and slammed him into the ground, proceeding to brutally beat his head into a nearby rock. He then stood up, turned around, and stared at the woman. He had completely forgotten at this point that he had been stabbed, until she stared at the spot with wide eyes. He looked down and realized...the wound had fully healed. He didn’t have time to think about how though, they had to go. Axis quickly grabbed the woman and helped her onto a nearby horse, then climbed on and they were off. Where they were going, Axis had no clue. He just knew they had to go far away.

The day had started like any other, with Premula being the first one up. She was part of a den of well known thieves, called the Jackals. She moved into the morning sunlight coming through the window and stretched. She knew that today was the perfect day for stealing and not getting caught, there was a huge carnival going on which meant she could get 3 things easier than usual: free money, free food, and fun. She loved the feeling of being chased, and getting away by climbing. She loved feeling of being better at something than the rich people and guards, even though they thought of her as scum. She put her bag on her belt, slipped her small dagger into the sheath in her boot, and went into the street.

Premula weaved her way between the tightly packed people, taking coin pouches here and there, and finally made her way to the market where a part of the carnival was going on. It was always nice to see all the people dancing, playing music, and having fun, but she couldn’t stop and stare. She was hungry and saw an apple stand nearby. She walked over and put only 3 apples in her bag before someone yelled “Hey, put those apples back!” and she had to run. With her small stature, it was easy to move through the crowd and then climb onto a building. The guards weren’t that lucky though, and were constantly having to stop. As Premula looked over the edge at the guards and grinned, she could see them seething with hatred as they walked away. Premula knew that her friends had to all be waking up by now, so she started walking to the den, happily eating her apple. She was walking down the street near the end of town when she heard a huge rumbling noise. It was so loud that she thought only elephants could make the noise. As she looked around, she saw that she was very wrong. She saw hundreds, if not thousands, of soldiers jogging towards her town. She stared in amazement with the other townspeople at the soldiers as they got closer. Their amazement soon turned into terror, as the soldiers began killing everyone.

Premula was stuck standing at the side of the road, frozen with shock. After a bit of standing there, a soldier came up to Premula and raised his spear. “He’s about to stab me, I need to move!” she thought to herself. She couldn’t though. It was like someone had nailed her to that spot. All of a sudden, the soldier in front of her was tackled by...another soldier? She watched as soldier 1 pushed the other one off him, yelled something, then charged. Her head was so fuzzy, she couldn’t make out any noises. They were all just really loud and molded together. She saw soldier 2 get stabbed in the gut, but he did even look close to dying. Instead, he looked angry. He snapped the spear, got off it, then grabbed the first soldier and slammed him into the ground. Premula finally got the ability to move and looked away as she picked the sound of something cracking, out of the ball of noise she was hearing. She looked back at the remaining soldier after he was done, and saw him turn around. She forced herself to look at the spot where his wound was, and was stunned to see that it was gone. The soldier briefly looked at it too, then quickly grabbed Premula and helped her onto a nearby horse, climbed on himself, and there they went. Premula didn’t try to stop him, because she saw what this beast could do. So off they rode, a terrified Premula and a soldier that seemed to know what he was doing.

As they neared the mountains, Axis relaxed a bit. He knew that no one would look for them here, and he soon found a cave to rest in. Axis finally spoke as he got off the horse and started to lead the way into the cave. “We should be safe here, are you okay?” After getting off the horse and a second of catching her breath, Premula found her voice. “Um..yeah, I’m fine. Who are you? Why did you save me? Where ARE we?” “I...I do not know why I saved you. I just felt the need and acted on it. We are on Mount Ossa, and my Name is Axis. What’s your name?” “My name is Premula. Although I do appreciate you saving me, you “acting on your needs” must get you in a lot of trouble in the army, yes?” “Actually, no. This is the first time I’ve ever done it. I’m a-well, was, a Spartan soldier. We are taught throughout our training to never give into needs or wants. We are taught to stay loyal to Sparta, and fight until we die.” Now, Premula had heard of the Spartan army before. They were a very feared army everywhere, yet barely anyone ever talked about them in her town. “Right here is good, we are out of view from anyone going by the cave.” Axis said, interrupting Premulas thoughts. “I saw goats and other animals close to us when we were on our way here, I will go hunt.” Premula let him go, even though she knew she still had apples. Axis had taken 3 trips back and forth and was gone for only an hour before he came back with a pile of sticks, 3 goat corpses, and some fruits. After he skinned the goats, Premula took the skin and sewn them into blankets. Axis and Premula had things going good, and were falling in love with each other, as the weeks went on. After those weeks, everything went bad.

One day as Axis was sharpening his sword and Premula was cleaning her dagger, they heard a huge boom from right outside the cave. “AXIS, MY SON. COME OUT SO I CAN SEE YOU!” Axis immediately jumped up and started walking towards the entrance, angry that someone scared him, found his hiding place, claimed to be the father he never knew, but most of all: Angry that now, someone could hurt him and Premula. As he got to the entrance, he saw a man with a flaming spear, and flaming skull for a head. Axis immediately recognized the man as the god of war, Ares. “What do you want with me, Ares? Why did you call me son?” Ares smiled and then spoke. “I want you to come with me and be in your rightful place. Also, I called you son because I’m your father. If you don’t believe me, just look at your fighting abilities. Also, don’t forget about that stab wound that healed itself.” “No. I’m not coming with you, Ares. I’m staying here.” At hearing this, Ares frowned. “Fine, have it your way. I was gonna be nice, but I guess if you won’t come with me, I’ll just kill the person you love.” And he threw his spear at Premula, who had followed Axis out of the cave and now was standing next to him.

Axis moved at speeds he didn’t know he could, and grabbed the spear out of the air inches from Premula, spun around, and threw it back at Ares. The handle was so hot, that even after a couple seconds of holding it, Axis had burns on his hand. He didn't care though, as his rage took control. This god had just tried to kill Premula, and he wasn’t going to let that happen without a fight. The spear hit Ares in the chest and he laughed as pulled it out. “Try again.” Axis charged him with his sword, and managed to cut off Ares’s hand. It instantly grew back. Ares then moved at unimaginable speeds, and stabbed Axis in the chest. Axis could feel his insides burning up as he looked over to Premula, who then jumped onto Ares and stabbed him in the neck with her dagger. Ares unstuck his spear from Axis and let his body fall to the ground. Then he grabbed Premula by her arm and stabbed her too. Her body hit the ground as Ares threw Premulas knife to the ground next to her. “Weaklings.” he said to the bodies, and then left.
Aphrodite, the goddess of love, saw everything from her spot on Mount Olympus. She saw how much Axis and Premula loved each other, and how they died trying to save each other. She decided to make a flower in their memory, and so after only their bones were left, the first two of the new type of flowers grew from the center of Axis and Premulas piles of bones. After they bloomed, Aphrodite went down to the humans and told them of Axis and Premulas story and that they would find their bones with a new type of flower called the Rose. After days of looking, the villagers that she told found the bones. They then had a funeral for Axis and Premula, and put the Roses on the bones before burying them.

TITLE: Vangu's Sacrifice

MYTH: In the beginning, there was a glimmering light. Emerging from it came the shapeless Vagnu, neither male nor female, neither black nor white, and neither human or animal. Pieces of Vagnu dropped off every day. Soon, part of him dropped off and formed what we call earth. After that, tinier chunks started falling off, forming mountains. Then he dried it. But he wasn’t done yet. Then more fell off of him, but he didn’t get a chance to dry it into solid ground because he split into the deities Egelbreth and Opleion. So became the waters.

Egelbreth created all sorts of creatures, beautiful and fascinating in their own ways. However, Opleion implanted discrimination into their minds. The creatures began to war among themselves, until Egelbreth had had enough. She wiped all of the creatures from the face of the Earth, because they destroyed Vangu in order to destroy each other. Egelbreth tried again. She created a fairer race than all of the others before them, humans. Opleion again tried his evil tricks, implanting evil into the hearts of humans. However, Egelbreth was prepared. First, she locked up Opleion in Hasar Yun, The pits of the earth. Then she wiped evil to varying extents among everyone. That is why when souls die, they are judged. The souls showing more of Egelbreth’s purity gets to join her in the cosmos, while the ones showing Opleion’s corruption share his punishment of being locked up in Hasar Yun, to remind Opleion of what he had done to the human race.

TITLE: In the Beginning

MYTH: A long time ago, before the world was created, there was a flower floating in darkness. One day, the flower bloomed and out popped Lunos the sun and Solia the moon. Lunos took Solia as his wife and the flower became the ground. The stem of the flower became rivers, the petals became animals, and the leaves became mountains and hills.

Lunos and Solia had four children, Autem the God of Autumn, Frigus the God of Winter, Una the Goddess of Spring, and Inga the Goddess of Summer. Lunos and Solia wept in joy and those tears became humans. They were called the Unto Anos, the first people.

Lunos and Solia felt pity for the Unto Anos and sent down their fifth son, Argretos, to teach them how to live. Argretos taught them how to farm plants, irrigation, tame animals, make huts, and how to hunt and defend themselves. In return, the story of their creators were passed down through the generations.

MYTH: CHAPTER I Final Destination

Our tale begins On the night when the blade of Olympus had gone missing and felled into the wrong hands and the question that was asked many times over (who took the blade, who?), the very same blade that delivered the Olympian god's victory against the mighty titans, the titans defeat during the great war, they were banished by the king of the gods to the pits of tartarus, their final destination and resting place where they lived in torment for all eternaty as the gods rised in victory, the Olympians were in total shock to have heard about the blade's dissapearence but it didn't make any sense to them and who would dare challenge their strenght, they kept on wondering and wondering but still, they didn't have the slightest clue on who would commit such a sin against the gods and conspire against his own kind, a traitor, better yet, a thief fooling around with great power.

Dishonour was brought to the gods and Olympus crumbled ever since that night due to the absence of the blade caused by the betrayal of don't know yet who? and eversince that day, the sun departed from it's rightful place, the clouds of light vanished as the winds of darkness made it's turn in Mount Olympus reminding every Olympian on what yet still to come.

Hades the god of the underworld told Zeus that it's an unacceptable behaviour by this anonymous individual who takes what he doesn't really wield and what doesn't actually belong to him (The Blade Of Olympus), action had to be taken concerning that matter but where do they begin and that was the hard part.

Poseidon the god of the seas started to suspect his brother Hades by thinking that he had something to do with the dissapearence but on the other hand, Athena the goddess of wisdom and warfare turned her attention to Thanatos the god of death who had been acting very strange lately ever since the weapon had gone missing.

Zeus had two options that were suggested by Hades and Thanatos, both with different opinions, if the traitor is revealed, banish him to the depths of Hades or place him in eternal torture trapped in deaths domain for all eternaty but the king of the gods had difficulty making his decision and the next moment both gods had an argument over whom will get previllage to punish the sinner and all of a sudden a fight almost broke out between the two gods of Olympus but the sun god Helios got in the way to prevent them both from ripping each other's heads off, he had to calm them down and enlightened them that waging war against one another is not the solution to the problem but Zeus's main concern was the children of Olympus cause their lives were at stake with the blade gone and he doesn't yet know what the thief's intentions really are cause the king of the gods sensed that harm could ascend upon his children at anytime.

Poseidon feared the same as Zeus that very same moment and to them it felt like Mount Olympus had fallen piece by piece slowly and so the anonymous thief who remained witheld and finally succeeded in testing the power and getting the attention of the gods but still he had no idea what he had wrought upon Greece including himself.

The god of war suggested that he should be given the previllage to seek out this thief that placed Greece in ruins but Zeus told him straight up that he would be wasting his time apperently cause in his mind there was absolutely no way that Ares would succeed in pulling it off.

Persephone the goddess of the underworld and wife to Hades suggested that they act immediately now before it's too late cause the humanity of Greece already suffers and the children of Olympus prey to their gods every single minute in their minds to protect them from any harm no matter what.

A shadow, a ghost in the night slaying the innocent and roaming around with his prized posession, dishonoured the way of the gods and now the children of Olympus all live in fear and wonders everyday what could happen to them at any moment cause recently romours had been spreading around in the city lately that two soldiers were brutally slaughtered on that very same night of the blade's dissapearence with their heads hanging above the gates in the city-state well known as Sparta, Sparta the strange and frightening city-state wich lays in the south of the Peloponesse, the peninsula that forms the southern half of the Greek mainland, it is well known as a fierce and brutal society that was determined to keep it's neighbours in a constant state of fear as they were tought to never retreat or surrender, were tought that death in service to Sparta was the greatest glory any man could ever give to imbrase the might of the Spartan empire, their mind and imagination were occupied only with matters of war and domination, all men had to serve in the army and learning the art of battle was what they dedicated their whole lives to and Sparta was known as the city of war.

Many say that the Spartans claimed to be the descendants or the children of the legendary hero Heracles, also known to all by his latin name Hercules, from invading their own country and taking over Laconia to conquering Messenia wich made Sparta the most powerful city-states of it's time and of course those who were defeated at their hands was reduced to helots(slaves) and were forced to work the land for their Spartan overlords, farming their own land and being oblidged to hand over half of their products to their Spartan masters, as a mark of inferiority, the helots had no choice and were forced to wear animal skins and caps made of dog skin and every year they received a ritual beating and with death awaithing if they dare try to run away.

Zeus wondered why would the anonomys involve Sparta into the mess he created, it didn't make sense to the chief of the gods and the blade had already been stained by the blood of the two innocent and brave Spartans, their souls wonders around now in the depths of Hades, an unforgivable act of deceit, a man bringing dishonour upon himself and his fellow greeks and disgracing the gods in his own need for ultimate power, it did not bode well on Olympus, the king of the gods knows already that is the trail that he must follow to see exactly where it will lead him in his investigation to discover the real truth's behind it and of course his brother Poseidon assissted him along the way and helping to seek out the one who betrayed his own and put an end to all the madness that had been wrought.

The trail leaded to the cliffs of Laconia, the fertile land around Sparta but then the chief wondered why he would set foot in the fertile land and it sounded like he was leaving trails behind for them to follow and so they did, nothing stopped them along the way cause nothing or nobody could, more and more dead bodies in their path as they investigate but from out of nowhere, the two gods hears the voice of Lord Hades the god of the underworld, warning them that they'll find only spilled blood of the innocents every step they take and every turn they make. They realised too late that they were being toyed with the entire time ever since they arrived in Sparta but Zeus disbelieved that theory and continue to focus on the task that is at hand and Hades stopped convincing the king of the gods and let him walk into that reality of realising that both him and Poseidon are being played the whole time.

Meanwhile, deep within the domain of death, Thanatos the god of death finally claimed his prize well known as the blade of Olympus in the palm of his hands, he was the traitor right under the noses of the Olympian gods that took the weapon of Zeus, he was the one that stained his own hands with Spartan blood, the man who dishonoured his own fellow god brothers and sisters and of course the one that tricked Zeus and Poseidon but no one is aware that he's behind all of it so he just continued toying with and wacthing them make fools of themselves in thinking that their on the right path but appearently the weren't thanks to his brilliant idea of scheming.

The madness continued, Olympus still lives in a constant state of concern and fear and it has been chaos ever since the blade was taken from it's rightful place. Total madness and chaos all because of Thanatos's foolish and disgraceful act upon his own fellow Olympians. a mistake that cannot be undone.

Athena had the strangest feeling while on Mount Olympus and as for the god of war, he still suspected Hades, but the goddess's attention turned mostly to Atlantis the city of Poseidon, something she never felt before but she wondered how Atlantis fits in all of this and then it got to her again but this time she sensed that the god of death has something to do with all the mess, she wasn't actuslly really sure if he's the one responsible so she had to think it through and make sure first before jumping to any concluetions so she told Ares to keep an wacthful eye on Olympus while she heads off to Atlantis to discover what's really going on, she headed for the kingdom of Thanatos the god of death, a place where no man, mortal or god including goddess would dare set foot "Deaths Domain" she entered the domain and made her way up to the throne room of Thanatos to confront him on the feeling she had back on Olympus and when she got there, she realized that it wasn't necesarry to do so cause she now finally found out the real thruth and with her own two eyes she saw the blade of Olympus in the hands of Thanatos and realised that she right where she believed she was wrong, the god of death never expected Athena in his presence but didn't care really, now only she knows that it was him all along.

The goddess called him a traitor,for dishonouring their ways, it disgusted Athena to see who really made the decision to conspire against the gods, Thanatos of all gods to commit such a sin against his own kind, she was very dissapointed in him as he was supposed to be setting a much better example for a god of Olympus and the goddess couldn't stand the site of him any longer and it hit her mind immediately that she had to enlighten the rest of the Olympians about Thanatos's betrayal and deceit before it was too late but the god of death wouldn't let himself be exposed like that by a goddess and the only way she left deaths domain was in bad shape after Thanatos deciced to drove the blade of Olympus into her heart but she was still on her feet and managed to escape his wrath and he already knows that she won't live for long in her condition cause her time was slipping but still she managed to make it back to Olympus and reach her brother Ares.

She told him everything on how the god of death desecrated the land of Greece and the name of Atlantis and Olympus when he betrayed them all and aspecially the real truth that was called "stealing the blade of Olympus".

The god of war could not believe what he had heard coming from his own sister, Thanatos the god of death responsible for everything that has happened, right under his nose the entire time, that was the last words she said to Ares and she died after that shortly, Zeus couldn't sense the presence of his daughter anymore and decided to stop the investigation in Sparta and head back home, the children of Olympus cried their hearts out when they heard of Athena's death, even the king of the gods had tears running down his face for the loss of his own flesh and blood as well as Hades and Poseidon, the end for the goddess of wisdom and warfare but Ares had a hard time wondering why Thanatos would betray them.

Helios walked up to Ares and told him that he should stop wondering all the time and face the fact that the god of death had made his choice. and that they have to do what's right in the name of Olympus by looking at Thanatos the god of death as their brother no more, but as their enemy.

The life of a goddess ended within the blink of an eye and Thanatos with no regrets what's so ever, the murderer of a goddess actually enjoyed what he did to Athena.

Her death left Athens vulnaurble to the god of death but he had no intentions of taking over Athena's kingdom but still the city is left without a patron so lord Zeus named his son the god of war Ares the new patron god of Athens and the god of death didn't like the sound of that part or that decision made by the king of the gods.

The god of war never expected to rule Athena's kingdom one day but it appears that day finally came when his father named him it's new patron and Ares truly considered it an honour coming from Zeus but he took it, not because he had to, it was because he chose to, the responsibilities of Athens was placed on his shoulders as he must set an example and not disgraced the name of Olympus the way Thanatos did when he spilled his hands with Spartan blood including the blood of Athena including the part where he retreated with the blade of Olympus.

The gods rejected him for what he had done and the fact was when they look at the god of death, the only image they saw was Athena covered in her own blood, Thanatos never considered the consiquences of his actions cause conspiring against the mighty Zeus means conspiring against all gods as well and Thanatos knows it better then anybody else.

The world still in darkness, the blade still absent from it's rightful place, a traitorus god that holds a weapon of ultimate power in the palm of his right hand with nothing to lose, the children of Olympus still living in fear, the god of war with a responsebility and reputation to live up to, Zeus with the mind of taking back the blade of Olympus from Thanatos but most importantly he desires to avenge his daughter's death by slaying the god of death and making him suffer for the crimes he commited.

Thanatos really enjoyed what he was witnessing from his throne room in deaths domain with the blade in his possession as he sat in his chair feeling like he's unstoppable, he knows the gods will not rest until he suffers but there was no fear, worries or concern in the eyes of the death god as he pretty much enjoyed seeing Olympus lying in ruins before his very eyes in this time as he wanted to make humanity recognize him as the one who made Greece fall but apparently he was mistaken cause the king of the gods including Hades and Poseidon was in his way and he knows it's not easy getting rid of the three most powerfull of all the Olympian gods so he wouidn't dare try to challenge one of them for that matter but still he had them right where he wanted them( in pain and suffering) but to Zeus, the god of death didn't know the meaning of the words (pain and suffering) and still nobody has a clue why he's doing what he's doing but it didn't matter to the king of the gods as Thanatos is already aware of the consiquences that lies within the choices he makes but the god of death still didn't care, a man that was erected before the gods of Olympus but still, it didn't give him the right to spill his hands with Athena's blood and the blood of brave Spartans, violating the rules of the gods was the worst sin the god of death committed, no shame but only a cold hearted and cruel mind for a man who calls himself a god, darkness is what he brought upon his own kind, darkness that has no end and on top of it, he pushed the mighty Zeus to the brincks of madness,

Consumed with vengeance in his heart, the king of the gods already knows that he had to do what's right in the name of Olympus and that was to take down the god of the death with his own two bare hands so he made his way to the domain of death(the kingdom of Thanatos) to end this once and for all but he wasn't alone, Hades and Poseidon joined him as well in case he walks into an ambush.

Thanatos wasn't actually that suprised to see them but he was curious to find out how they were able to enter his kingdom and then Poseidon showed him the key to entering (deaths domain), the skull of Keres but he wondered how the god of the seas got hold it and then poseidon told him that he got it from Athena before she died. Thanatos wasn't aware that day that she took the skull but it didn't matter to him anymore cause he still holds what Zeus seeks to take back from him(the blade of Olympus).

A Confrontation broke out between the god of death and the chief of the gods and it turned out that Thanatos was accompanied by non other than Stheno, Euryale and Medusa all well known as the gorgon sisters, he enlightened Zeus that it wasn't him that killed the Spartans that day at the gates, it was all the gorgon's doing but he admits that it was he who arranged for it to happen the way it did but he already knows that it's too late to confest now cause what's done is done and can't be undone and the gods just couldn't ignore what he had wrought upon Greece cause the evidence was there, his judgement day awaits him but he made sure that day doesn't arrive anytime soon cause he fleed out of deaths domain by using the gorgon sisters to cover his escape wich made Zeus recognised him as nothing more than a coward that was afraid to face his fears, fleeing was his way of a fight, instead he had the gorgon sisters do his dirty bidding for him and the king of the gods called him a disgrace for walking amongs the gods when he knew that he had done wrong.

The gorgons had their hands full with Poseidon and Hades, as for Zeus and Thanatos, it was the fight of the centuries, much worse than the great war with the mighty titans, two powerful gods clashing in the city of Atlantis for survival, the atlantian watched the inevetable with their very eyes and the rest of the Olympian gods witnessed the impossible from the gods chamber, two gods, one left standing and of course the ultimate price, the blade of Olympus, one walks away with it, the death of Thanaots was all that mattered to the gods of Olympus cause only his death will set humanity free from fear and darkness, a fight to the end, as for the gorgons, they met their end at the hands of Poseidon and Hades, for their punishment, they joined the mighty titans in the pits of Tartarus, their final destination and resting place, living in torment for all eternaty.

Meanwhile, in Atlantis, the fight was still on between Zeus and Thanatos, an unforgetable event in the land of Greece and it was all because of Thanatos's betrayal, Hades and Poseidon sensed that it was still on, so they left deaths domain to witness the final shodown, Zeus vs Thanatos.

When they got there, Thanatos turned his attention to them both, he tought that there was going to be some interference by the god of the seas and the god of the underworld, than again he was mistaken, but his biggest mistake was turning his attention away from Zeus and that allowed the king of the gods to retrieve the blade from his hands and drive it into his heart, the same way he did to the goddess Athena and that was the end for the god of death, Hades took his soul as he promised he would, Thanatos became a fallen god at the hands of Zeus and now a prisoner in the underworld, trapped for eternaty in the depths of Hades, the skies turned blue once again and the clouds of darkness vanished without a trace, the blade was wield by Zeus once again and Olympus was freed from fear and darkness.

The gods are aware of what's yet to come but they promised each other to always put their differences, becoming one and fight for what's right, no waging war against one another, stand together and do everything in their power to ensure that Olympus prevails no matter what and as for Thanatos, his energy signal dissapeared and at last, his days of bringing corruption upon humanity was finally over, Greece was saved at last.

After everything went back to normal on Mount Olympus, the gods celebrated their victory and it reminded them that there's nothing more important than being heroes and standing up against evil and fighting for what you believe in, what happened on Olympus was unforgivable and will never be forgotten. Thanatos paid dearly for his crimes and now (deaths domain) doesn't have a ruler but the gods considers to seek out who's worthy of the title and power called, the god of death, a task that won't be that easy for Zeus to accomplish but his brothers agreed with him that there is someone out there, worthy of the title to be a god, everything falled into place ecxept for deaths domain that has no patron, Athens has Ares the god of war already but in due time said Zeus they will find someone that can live up to such responsebilities as a god, setting a good example and not failing and dishonouring the gods in the way Thanatos the fallen god of death did.

Hades just made a change all of a sudden when he decided to banish the fallen god from the depths to the pits of tartarus where he joined the gorgons and his rivals the mighty stitans, a nice treat from the god of the underworld.

Cronos wasn't surprised to see the christmas package that Hades delivered in the titans tomb, actually non of the titans was surprised to see an Olympian god in tartarus cause it reminded them of the day when Zeus betrayed them all, Thanatos was unwelcomed in their presence but he cared less wheter they liked it or not even though he was tied in chains just as the titans were.

Gaia just laughed when she saw Thanatos now the fallen god of death and she said "well look who's here, the traitor of Olympus, the fallen god and now your throne has nobody, you should worry Thanatos cause the chief of the gods plans to seek new air to your throne room wich means that a new god of death will be born making you not only the fallen, but the forgotten god of death) and he translated "oh im sorry Gaia have you forgotten that it was we the gods of Olympus that defeated you and the rest of your titans in the great war and we gods are actually the reason your in here" and Cronos interveened " silence you fool, your in our domain now so you can kiss your precious "deaths domain" goodbye you fallen god cause you no longer weal it" Thanatos just smiled and Cronos wondered what was there to smile about when your in hell and the fallen god responded back to the leader of all titans "you're the fools here cause i still have allies out there and you think this is the end Cronos, no this is only the beginning of things far more worse then me out there that awaits the gods and everything they stand for, Zeus thinks this is the end, well it's only the beginning of the end" so they can enjoy their peace and harmony for now but sooner or later, darkness will need a challange against the light and breathing natures of life and air wich was "The Gods Of Olympus" said Thanatos and there it was, rotting for all eternaty, tartarus, the fallen god of death's final destination or in other words, his last stop destination, hell.
NAME: Jake
TITLE: The Wife Napped

MYTH: Have you ever wondered what Athena does when she gets mad we’ll listen in and you will find out, one day there was a man named Christopher he lived with his wife and his 2 kids. His wife’s name is Jessica and his sons names are Zlatan and Brett.they lived of the island of melanthios the population of the island would be about 500 people. Christopher was the king of melanthios and his wife was the queen. On the island of melanthios it is always sunny not ever many clouds or rain.

Suddenly one day when Christopher and Jessica and their 2 sons are eating dinner a huge rain storm comes in and then Athena appears and steals Jessica and takes her away. After the storm leaves and everyone stands up again Christopher screams “this is all my fault I’m the one who upset the god Athena.”

“Why have you done this” screamed Zlatan “our mother is now gone.”

“It is okay Zlatan I will go to Mount Olympus tomorrow morning to go see where your mother is,” said Christopher “now go get the maid I will tell her the bad new and she will be watching you when I am searching for your mother."

“What did you do” asked the maid

“I’m sorry I have stolen from my good friend Garrett, Athena was protecting him from hades” said Christopher “I think Athena thinks was trying to help hades so she punished me by taking my wife Jessica. You will be staying with Zlatan and Brett when I am gone.”

The next morning Christopher set for sail to Mount Olympus. His ship had 50 men on it. As they are travelling to Mount Olympus Athena shows up and say that Christopher only has thirty six hours to save him wife from the island of the sirens. As Athena leaves Christopher screams “ let hurry up we only have 36 hours we have to get to Mount Olympus to ask Zeus where the island of the sirens is. As Christopher gets to Mount Olympus Christopher goes into zeus's room and pauses for a second and notices the he only has twenty four hours left the he asked Zeus how to get to the island of the sirens.

“You will have to travel past the whirlpool monster which will take you ten hours to get there” proclaimed zeus “and then you will have to sail for twelve hours straight and you will make it to the island of the sirens.” “That means we will only have two hour to find Jessica” said Christopher “ we have to leave now. Thank you for helping me Zeus.”

As Christopher gets to whirlpool monster after ten hours of sailing he doesn’t notice that it is right in front of him and at the last second one of the men o the ship scream to turn the boat. They just barely make it out alive, the whirlpool monster was mad that he didn’t pull the ship in so he started chasing him. After three hours of the whirlpool monster chasing the boat the whirlpool monster just gave up.

Finally they get to the island of the sirens with two hours to spare.

“Let’s start looking for her but just remember leave the bees wax in your ears or you will fall in love with the sirens forever.” After an hour of looking around the island everyone meets up again.

Once everyone gets back to their boat Christopher asks “has anyone found anything about Jessica?” No says all of the other men. “Then let’s keep looking for her so everyone put some more ears wax in.” Christopher starts running around looking for jessica.

He goes and looks in this cave and a minotaur jumps out at him Christopher starts running the complete other way. Once he gets back to the ship no one else is there so he hides from the Minotaur and waits until everyone gets back. After 20 minutes the Minotaur gives up looking for Christopher. When he comes out of the bush he was hiding in he finds his ship crew. Christopher starts thinking of other ways to find her and he takes one more look in that cave and there she is. “I am so happy to see you” says Christopher As everyone goes to leave Athena says “good job you have have complete you first of many mission. Your next mission will start now.”
