    Default Favorite Myths and Legends

    What is yours? Mine would be Greek/Roman mythology. And a favorite within that:

    Hermes: Why are you depressed, Apollo?

    Apollo: Because I'm so unlucky in love, Hermes.

    Hermes: That's worth hurting over. But how are you unlucky?
    Or do you just mean you're still hurting about the whole Daphne thing?

    Apollo: No, I'm over that. But I'm grieving for a boyfriend - the Spartan, the son of Oibalos.

    Hermes: Do tell. Is Hyacinthos dead?

    Apollo: Very dead.

    Hermes: Who did it, Apollo? I mean, who could be so heartless that he would kill that beautiful guy?

    Apollo: I did it.

    Hermes: Did you go crazy, Apollo?

    Apollo: No! It was a bit of an unfortunate accident.

    Hermes: How? I want to hear how it happened.

    Apollo: He was learning to throw the discus and I was practicing with him. But that damned wind Zephyros - see, he had also been in love with the boy for a long time but the boy didn't pay attention to him, and he couldn't take being ignored. He did it. I threw my discus up, like I always do, but he blew down from Mount Taygetos, and moved it, and slammed it into the boy's skull so a lot of blood gushed from the wound and the boy died right then and there. Well, right away I shot an arrow at Zephryos and made him run off. I chased him all the way back to the mountain. As for the boy, I raised a tomb for him in Amyclai where the discus got him, and I made the earth send up a flower from his blood. The nicest and brightest flower of all, Hermes. It even has letters that spell out a lament for the deceased. Do you think my grief is unreasonable?

    Hermes: Yes I do, Apollo. You knew that you'd chosen a boyfriend who was mortal. So don't be upset because he died.

    - Lucian (ca. AD 120-ca. 185 wrote in Greek)

    The Anneid by Virgil. The story of the founding of Rome by a trojan by the name of Anneas. A really great story. Full of adventure and blood and all that great stuff.

    You Greek/Roman myth lovers should seriously consider reading the Iliad or the Odyssey.

    A translated version, of course.
    If each mistake being made is a new one, then progress is being made.

    Read them! I was lucky enough that my college had a Greek/Roman Mythology class. One of my favorite courses of all time and 4.0ed it!

    The Bermuda Triangle. People say that if you sail or fly over the Bermuda Triangle, you'll disappear. I watched this show called Truth or Scare. They talked about the Bermuda Triangle. My eyes were glued to the screen! It was so interesting!

    I also like Crop Circles. Some people say that they are messages from life form from outer space; some people think they are hoax from other humans; some say when stars and planets aline, they form. Its a very intriguing topic.

    Vlad Tepes. Otherwise known as "Dracula" or "Vlad the Impaler". I just love the story, I find it really interesting, especially because Vlad Tepes was a real Romanian man, just not a Vampire. Although he did still impale people. He was called Vald the Impaler because he impaled his enemys by stabbing a pole or spear through their anus and then exited it through their mouth.

    The whole Dracula theme really seems awesome to me.

    I really like the Christian mythology (Leviathan, Lucifer, Hell, etc.) and the various mythologies from the American natives (Aztec, Maya, etc.).

    There was a rural legend in my village saying that if you dump your face in a hot, boiling, fresh made cornbread, your freckles will dissappear.
    There's also a tale about a kid who tried it and didn't make it... alive.

    How could you forget Eris?!!! Greek mythology is so dull without her.

    Hm.... I'm just a kid so that modern mythology interests me, because I think it would be cool if we found something.

    Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, Moth Man, Jersey Devil...
    I don't know how I got into it though.

    I have always loved myths and legends. All of them seem so interesting. I read a bit of the egyptian mythology, its's really interesting but the greek mythology is what interest me most. ^^

    I've read a lot of Greek and Roman mythology

    "Aeneis" by Publius Vergilius Maro and "Libri ab urbe condita" by Titus Livius.
    I actually read parts of it in Latin... the translating took sooooo long xD

    The parts I read from Livius, were mainly about Hannibal.
    Ofcourse I didn't read all of it in Latin... I wouldn't be finished yet if I had.

    I'm also fond of folklore.. I just can't name a specific one now.

    I believe in most monster myths, and I believe they are real, but some secret or unknown reason is preventing us from discovering this

    I mean when you think about it, vampires, werewolves, witches etc etc, the legends had to originate somewhere

    Love is a favorite myth of mine. Probably the biggest hoax ever pulled off, and so many gullible suckers STILL believe in it. It's ridiculous.

    I like the myths and legends that surround the mysterious and unknown world of undiscovered animals, like: Mothman, Bigfoot, The Lochness Monster, etc. I hardly read, so that's all I know ^^;

    Oh, Hi-deeki, imagine... your kind not eating raw fish! ^_^

    Mythology in general really interests me (and to prove it I have a whole encyclopedia of all the magical creatures).

    Japanese mythology interests me the most because I'm into the country itself, but of course I REALLY love reading about creatures from myths and legends.

    One I read about in my "big book" is about a beast somewhere in England called Skriker. It appears as a dog with glowing eyes and is encountered by travellers at night. The Skriker comes up from behind, making squelching noises or it walks beside the person as if trying to lead the pace. If the Skriker appears ahead, it's trying to get the traveller away from the pathway. According to beliefs, if you beat or attack the Skriker you may die or face disaster. Nobody knows how much bad luck you get if you just ignore it. To the locals, a "skriker" is a person who moans and complains, which is what the beast does.

    So yeah, that's the kind of thing I love. If its on the creepy side it makes me love it even more. xD
    ~Thanks, Souhi! I heart it!~

    Greek/Roman mythology. Japanese mythology and legends. Faerie folklore and the like. And that Elizabeth Bathory story I find pretty interesting.

    The Book of Enoch.

    It's a biblical version of the Prometheus myth. A band of angels break the law to descend upon earth and fornicate with human women and teach them secret arts, which men begin to use to kill each other. God is angered and casts their leader into the depths of the world, and their offspring are turned into man-eating giants. One of my favorite Apocrypha.
    "If a person who indulges in gluttony is a glutton, and a person who commits a felony is a felon, then God is an iron."

    -Spider Robinson, God Is an Iron
