100DoN - November by emedeme 100DoN - November by emedeme
I'm having feelings over a pairing that is thousand years old and that's ok. I'm just dying but it's ok :'D

This is supposed to happen the first time Persephone is back to the Underworld....so I went and made a sequel for a comic that hasn't even happened yet. Wibbly wobbly timey wimey.

on tumblr: emegustart.tumblr.com/post/482…

Shared idiocy with :iconavastguitars:

Side note: I'll name all the Hades/Persephone shit with "100DoN", so you know if you want to skip it ;)

EDIT: You probably know because I just don't shut up about it, but the real comic is already available to read 100don-comic.com We update every Monday and Thursday!

So what does Persephone does while she is away? I know that Hades basically sulks/ buries himself with  job but what about her?

He doesnt sulk too much, that's just his natural self.

I really like your design for Hades. He has a certain... frazzledness about him that I would expect from someone as busy as the Lord of the Dead. Plus he's pretty cute - I can't look at that smile in the last panel without grinning myself.

Thank you! That's what I was trying to achieve. I don't see him being super muscly or a pretty teen boy... I see him more like an office man, very very tired and busy and frazzled XD

I hope this is a troll comment... Firstly, because what we're doing here is a retelling and interpretation of a myth (guess what, as a myth has so many versions that it's kind of impossible to say which one is the "true" one... do you know that actually in one of the versions they plot together the whole kidnapping thing? Do you know that the kidnapping thing could be also a metaphor for "taking the girl from her parents' house" in the Ancient times...? For a better explanation of all this I recommend reading this post, it's way better explained and I just woke up emegustart.tumblr.com/post/516… ... do you know that gods can't die, so she didn't really need to eat the pomegranate to live...? I want to think she wasn't stupid, so she kind of know what she was doing when she eat those seeds...). As a myth, it can have many readings and many interpretations. I just find rude that you come here assuming things based on a certain point of view, specially when I'm drawing a comic about this story and apparently you don't know anything about our characters and how the whole thing is going to go for them. Or how they're going to get to this very point where, yes, she's happy to see him.

Secondly. Congratulations for having such a good relationship with Persephone. So good that she can personally tell you about her likes and dislikes.

I sincerely apologize for the pure and utter stupidity of the comment i left. It was rude and uncalled for. I had no intention to insult your comic, i was just confused about what was going on. After you explained it to me in your reply I understood. Now i feel like an idiot and a jerk. As a child, I was always told the story under the implication that Persephone was held against her own will. Maybe i just wasn't open-minded enough to think about the multiple possibilities and interpretations of the myth. Honestly, i did not think through my hurtful and offensive comment. It was disrespectful and thoughtless of me. I should have thought through how my comment implied that i was insulting your interpretation of the myth. I Honestly love your comic and art. I guess i wasn't thinking when i wrote that comment.  I know i already said it, but i am truly and honestly sorry and i hope you do not take any of it to heart.

I was just having a stressful day and had no right what-so-ever to write that comment.

Once again, I am Sorry

Actually her mother was the one upset by her disappearance [and she did a lot of damage both through her bringing of winter, and through killing people and making a lot of families miserable] 
But even ignoring that, Hades wasn't the bad guy in the story, Zeus was.
See in the greek culture, you asked the father [in this case, Zeus] if you could marry the intended bride, and if he said yes, you were in the right. Hades did everything he was supposed to according to the culture and traditions of the time, Zeus fucked up because he never TOLD her OR her mother, thus making for the 'surprise' disappearance when Hades took her to his home.

Several places in greek held festivals to celebrate their union because they were revered as essentially the only faithful couple among the gods because neither of them ever cheated on the other.
Plus some interpretations of the myth show Persephone as beyond happy with the situation because her mother was very oppressive and overbearing.
In some versions of the myth Hades asks her if she would be happy with the arrangement before he ever goes to Zeus, and again it's Zeus' fuck up because he never told her mother.
And in some versions no one told her mother with good reason because they knew she would attempt to prevent the union.

But even in the versions that don't have her blatantly happy about the situation, even in the versions that talk of how she misses the upper world, her friends or family, none of them talk of her hating or even disliking Hades.

We often compare Hades with Satan because that's what we consider our closest analogy, but in reality Hades wasn't someone to hate, he was a GOD he was to be feared and RESPECTED.
You dare not utter his name, not because he was evil, but because there was good reason to believe you could offend him, or he may not want to be spoken of, he wanted to be left alone because he was both busy and bitter, and you damned well didn't bother him.

So no, he did not force her, and there is no proof of her not liking him, and in fact are often versions with her distinctly liking him.

This was actually a fantastic and wonderfully symbolic story, it's always been one of my favorite myths uwu

... thank you. I can understand many people differ about this myth (because of the different versions and translations), I was just annoyed because of the way you commented and because I had a bad night and I literally had just woken up ^^; Don't worry about it :)

Im a big fan of this "ship" if i can call it by that name.

There is nothing wrong with it!.

Actually... I always wanted to see this story in a comic (i have to say da true, I WANTED TO MAKE THIS COMIC, but i feel so untalented [?]).

Thank you so much for bringin a bit of life to this old love story, i can say that you make one of my childhood dreams come true... :heart:
