This is the moment when I fell in love with Diomedes. Athena seems genuinely surprised that Diomedes recognizes her, and I don’t think that’s merely because she forgot that she gave him the ability to see Immortals. I think that Athena was expecting it to have worn off by now, but that Diomedes is more aware of the spiritual landscape than most people, and therefore is able to see Them better than most. This is, of course, mere speculation. It is also possible that Athena merely forgot that she had blessed Diomedes with Sight, considering everything that has happened in between. Regardless, I definitely have a book crush on this man and his sassy self.

ALSO, I love how Athena just tosses Sthenelus out of the chariot and Homer glosses over this and moves on. Um…? Is he okay? Does he know what has just happened? It is unlikely he can see Athena for who she is, so I would guess he’s pretty confused at this point. I love it.

I really enjoyed drawing this one. Athena is one of the more complex characters to draw and, yes, she does occasionally look like a one-eyed alien, but I love drawing her. It was just fun. And yes, I am a day late, but I am not going to apologize. I have had a ridiculously busy week and was running a low fever yesterday (annnnnnd I still am) and yet despite all of life nonsense I was able to get a post together for today, and I consider that a win. Wednesday’s post will probably be a day late as well, considering the fact that I’m leaving for work in half an hour and work both jobs tomorrow… BUT, that’s okay.

Thank you all for reading and for all of your support. I ❤ you guys. *throws sparkles* Have a good day, my lovelies.
