I know this is a lot of just Helen and Hector talking. I wish it was more fun -_- BUT IT EXISTS. Oh. My. Goodness. I almost had this all ready yesterday afternoon and then there was a problem with one of the pictures and then I fell asleep and then I had to work AND THEN IT WAS TOO LATE. *swoons*
HOWEVER. It is here for you now. The lady next to Helen is Aethra, who will show up later, hopefully, if I can get the Laodike post put together. It is hard to write comics when you are working 40+ hours a week and also trying to maintain friendships and also eating and sleeping and taking care of your introverted self. WHO KNEW.
Okay. I’m done capslocking it up. I actually did have some commentary I wanted to make.
Homer tells us that Paris built his house between Hector and Priam. I feel like this is Paris trying to show dominance over Hector. Hector is the top son, in line to take over the throne. I feel like Paris, the unaccounted for, miraculously found because saved by shepherd, upstart, wants to take over and rule Troy after Priam dies. I don’t know for sure, but I feel like maybe that is happening? Oh, Paris. He plays himself off as a silly pretty boy, but maybe there’s a devious mind at work here?
So frustrating, the way Helen is always calling herself a lady-dog and blaming herself for everything and talking down about herself. So. Frustrating. I want more from Helen and it’s just not something I’m going to get from Homer. (Which is why, I know I talk about these all the time, but really, this is why I love Helen of Sparta and By Helen’s Hand, because it gives me a Helen that does not continually call herself a lady-dog and etc.)
ANYWAY. I hope you enjoyed grumpy little Hector. Have a lovely day!
