fake mythological movie meme » richard armitage as hades, in la recherche du hadès
When the Gods are at war, everything that happens to Earth is simply a side effect; something that cannot be helped, but result in the greater good. Distracted in battle and tricked by an unknown deity, Hades left the Underworld unguarded, giving the souls that reside there the chance to escape. And so they did. The dead found their way to freedom, and coming to Earth, the damned creatures took the bodies of innocent humans, that have no idea their form is being used as a host for people that have left this place a long time ago. A task was given to the him by the olympians: Hades must find those souls, and bring them back to where they escaped from. And as a guarantee that he will conquer, Zeus took his most precious treasure as a pledge: Persephone.
I shall be no unfitting husband for you among the deathless gods, that am own brother to father Zeus.
And while you are here, you shall rule all that lives and moves and shall have the greatest rights among the deathless gods: those who defraud you and do not appease your power with offerings, reverently performing rites and paying fit gifts,
shall be punished for evermore.
Hook + Aurora as Hades + Persephone. Because not even coursework can distract me from the siren song of Sleeping Hook.

Hades x Persephone (x)
Sansa fans will be familiar with the Hades and Persephone myth through her time with Littlefinger and his offer of the pomegranate—its hallmark symbolical fruit—when she is at the Fingers. However, in our choice of this myth for the Legendaries project, we have focused on the love story between the gods Hades and Persephone told in the early sources, something which goes against the posterior widespread notion that she was unhappy with her husband, and therefore appropriate for a Sansa and Sandor portrayal. The god of the Underworld loved his wife dearly, building for her a manse and planting an orchard for her there, so she’d have a strip of the above world to live in during the months she was with him, from where the famous pomegranates came.
And though the archaic rites of the spring festivals put emphasis on the joyful reunion of mother and daughter, there were also some less known texts in which it’s described how light and laughter and happiness came back to Hades with Persephone’s return, which is nicely conveyed by these lines from Jo Walton’s poem “Hades and Persephone”:
I see you, and you see me, and we smile,
And your smile says you are as pleased as me
With everything and nothing still to say.
All that we’ve saved and thought through all this time
Boils down to affirmation now as we
Stand here enlightened in my realm of grey.
This is very much a poem about the happiness of reunion, which we are looking forward to with Sandor and Sansa after their long separation.
