Yeah.

So.

The Greek world was not pro-consent. *insert evil look here*

Also, Achilles is definitely the son of Peleus. Crying by the sea runs in the family, apparently.

This has been your extra post, and unless something weird happens, we shall return on Sunday for part 5.1.

  1. Briareus is kind of disturbing, which just goes to show I should probably NOT come up with character designs late at night.
  2. Thetis is much sassier than I had originally thought she would be, which pleases me greatly.
  3. Achilles didn’t necessarily blackmail his mother, but I wouldn’t put it past him, especially with Thetis’ sketchy relationship with Peleus (there will be more details about this in the future).
  4. I only now realized that half the time I use Latin spellings and half the time use Greek spellings for the names of people and places… which is inconsistent of me and I apologize. If I ever put this together as a book I’ll have to go through and fix that. Ah well. When you do research you’ll see it’s pretty inconsistent out in the world too.

Next time we will learn what is going on with Odysseus…

One: I don’t know what happened to Briseis’ eyes – but her life is terrible.

Two: I doubt Patroclus actually gave Briseis a knife, but I have my reasons for putting this in.

Three: Talthybius and Eurybates were not on the character list (they aren’t very important and only show up like two more times). Talthybius shows up in Euripides play Hekuba and Eurybates is Obdysseus’ squire and is, apparently, described as “dark-skinned and curly-haired.” I originally drew Talthybius as the shorter one and Eurybates as the taller one, but after reading that I switched them around. [ALSO: if I ever turn Hekuba into a comic YES he will show up there… There is a mid-to fair chance this will happen one day before I die.]

Today’s post is shorter, but Sunday will probably end up being long *sigh*

WHICH by the way, will be called something like Achilles Cries to His Momma, so be excited for the appearance of Thetis.

Achilles has some great insults I’ll have to keep in mind for the future…

Also, there was something else, but I don’t remember. *ponders* Oh! If you want to see what real Hellenistic bronze age helmets look like, instead of whatever it is I put on Athena’s head, see this page here or this page here.

Next Sunday will be Book 1 Part 3.1… which will probably be named the Insults of Achilles or something. I’m not sure yet, as I’m still writing the script for it. In the meantime, have a lovely day!
