"You do not sound as sure of yourself as I would need you to be right now, Seph. I can honestly say that I do not have full faith in any of this."

"Yes, well, I’m one of the few who actually think this situation is far from horrible.  It’s not indecision you hear, it’s reluctance.  I’m reluctant to keep a bitterness for this situation when it feels more an opportunity.  I, however, have no ill thoughts of humans.  At least not that matter when they are living."

Persephone noticed Zeus standing and looking upward into the sky.   She felt a little bad for their previous interaction and how she had snapped at him.  Now was as opportune as ever to try and make up for it a little, and she walked up from behind him to his side and took his hand in a gesture of familiarity.   She said nothing however, instead looking up to see what it was he was looking at, curious what had caught his attention.

You seem a bit… somber, I suppose. Somber would be the right word. Me? Oh, I’m fine. I’ve thrown myself into my work, but it’s satisfying. 

Somber?  You should have seen me a few days ago.  You could have seen the burdens openly.  No, I’m coming from that, and I’ve calmed down, things are definitely better.   What about you?  How have you been?

"Sorry…. I don’t mean to lecture.  Emotions seem to came far easier than they used to.   Things will get figured out… who did this… why they did it… all of it.  Until then, we just sort of have to go with it."

counsellingtitaness:

"I do not like this idea. What if something bad happens? They don’t follow rules. Anything could happen to us."

"Sadly, that’s part of the package.  I can tell you, however, all the issues I’ve had since this change have stemmed more from our own than any of the humans here.  You’ll know better what warning signs to look out for than most, so there’s that as well.  This town seems quiet enough not to really harbor any issues you truly need to worry about."

counsellingtitaness:

"Maybe we should be wiped out seeing as we failed them. You’ve seen the Underworld, but I have seen the beginning of the world. I’ve seen the beginning of man. I was around before your husband and his Underworld. There are things that you could not imagine. Your sights are dark, yes, but I still believe that I have seen worse."

"Right.  Well then perhaps it’s time you took a step back.  You’re mortal.  Why not trying to live like one?  See what it’s like.   It may change your opinion a little."

counsellingtitaness:

"Or perhaps you should look into it so you can see that not everything is flowers and charities. I am older than you, Persephone dear. I have seen more and I can say that this world now is falling on a dark time once again.We may as well put this miserable race right and it pains me to say the only way would be by ending them completely, but it just may be the only way."

"There seems to be a few things you’ve forgotten dear Themis.    You may be older, but I’ve seen my fair share of darkness.  I’ve seen the good and the bad of each soul that has crossed the River, far deeper than any human would willingly admit, even to themselves.   Secondly, we are all mortal ourselves, we have no power.  If we did, wiping out all the mortals would mean the wiping out of ourselves.  Not the most intelligent plan."

counsellingtitaness:

"One good deed does not make up for thousands of injustices."

image

"Perhaps not, but there are far more than one in history.  If the internet is such a negative place that it cannot show the good on this planet, then perhaps it’s best to stay away from it."

counsellingtitaness:

"There is no good in them."

image

"That’s a bit extreme an assumption, given you were just talking about how this ice bucket challenge is for a good cause."

counsellingtitaness:

"Greed. Corruption. Selfishness. Persephone, they are so selfish. As if they’d do anything for their own self despite laws and rules. They just cast them aside! It’s horrible!"

image

"They can be good too though.  Plenty call the flower shop for gifts.  Some to show love, others to cheer up, some still to simple share.  There’s good and bad in everyone, light and dark."
