What is Magic? Magic is the power to affect change by supernatural means. Magic can often be split into black and white, though depending on the situation, may also be neutral. All humans are connected to this power and may access it through practice and training. Whilst everyone has the ability to cast spells and perform other feats of magic, witches generally have more knowledge over the mystical energy and supernatural forces that permeates the entire universe. Humans who practices magical powers are called "witches." The origin of witchcraft remains unknown; however, it is known that witches have existed for many millennia, passing down their knowledge and skills through generations of family lines. Contrary to popular belief, not all w…

Season of Autnmn

The Dryads and Hamadryads were Wood-nymphs. Among them was Pomona, and no one excelled her in love of the garden and the culture of fruit. She cared not for forests and rivers (like her sisters), but loved the cultivated country and trees that bear delicious apples. Her right hand is armed with a pruning knife. Armed with this, she worked at one time, to repress the too dense growths, and curtail the branches that straggled out of place; at another, to split the twig and insert therein a graft, making the branch adopt a nursling not its own. She took care, too, that her favorites should not suffer from drought, and irrigated streams of water so the thirsty roots might drink. This occupation was her pursuit, her passion; and she was free from that which Venus inspires. She was not without fear of the country people, and kept her orchard locked, and allowed not men to enter. Pomona wasn't stupid, she know about the sexual acts and behaviors of satyrs and countrymen and she want par…

To Heroes of 9/11

Mnemosyne, Titan goddess of memory, was considered one of the most powerful goddesses of her time. After all, it is memory, some believe, that is a gift that distinguishes us from the other creatures in the animal world. It is the gift that allows us to reason, to predict and anticipate outcomes, and is the very foundation for civilization.
Ironically, the goddess Mnemosyne is largely forgotten, lost in the mists of time.  When she is remembered it is usually only in the context of her being the mother of the Muses, though all acknowledge that without memory the lively arts of the Muses would never have been possible.
Mnemosyne was a Titaness, a daughter of the first generation of deities in Greece.  Her parents were the rulers Uranus and Gaia, Mother Earth.
The goddess Mnemosyne is sometimes credited with being the first philosopher, her gift the power of reason. She was given responsibility for the naming of all objects, and by doing so gave humans the means to dialog and to conver…

Atlas Bearer of Heaven Titan God of Astronomy and Navigation Titan God of Daring Thought and Endurance Former General of Titans’ Army
Atlas, Titan God of Endurance and Weightlifting, was known for his strength and might. Atlas had huge muscles and was very large. He was very powerful with both his mind and his strength. Atlas was also known for being very pride and headstrong which got him into a lot of trouble in the end. As Kronos' General and second-in-command, Atlas was chosen to lead the other Titans in battle. He initially had the upper hand in his battles with the gods, since he was a very skilled swordsman and a much more experienced warrior. Hence, Atlas was initially known as the "terror of the gods." However, the gods quickly became skilled warriors as well, and with the help of their new extremely powerful weapons (Zeus' Master Bolt, Poseidon&…
