i’M LAUGHING SO HARD [x]

I’m pretty sure dolphins were associated with Dionysus, not Apollo should’ve said wolf or raven instead

No, they’re associated with Apollo as well. It’s just not mentioned as often.

I just did a bit of looking around myself, and you’re right. It’s mentioned in the Homeric Hymns, and Dionysus is a latecomer from the East to the Greek pantheon, so the sharing of associations is…”understandable” isn’t exactly the word I want, is it?

Are we not going to mention hyacinths were made from the dead body of Apollo’s best friend Hyacinthos, whom Zephyrus killed because he loved Apollo and was jealous of their friendship? HUGE SLAP TO THE FACE

that’s why it’s so funny or at least why I find it funny

Get ready for the Disney movies, people.

So I’m reading the article and then this:

 For example, there is the tale of a maiden who escapes a witch by transforming herself into a pond. The witch then lies on her stomach and drinks all the water, swallowing the young girl, who uses a knife to cut her way out of the witch.

German fairytales are so brutal. (I love that)

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
