OK…first off, it seems some of you guys are in need of this.

I mean, I gush over Calypso a lot myself, but my gushing seems so tamed compared to the attention Aeson seems to have been getting these days. :laughing:

There’s no such thing as getting too much into headcanons. Even if such events don’t actually happen in the game, stuff like that help a great deal when practicing character building. And a good mark of a game is often understanding what type of choices the reader will want to make and when are the right moments to bring such choices up.

Besides, sharing our Bearer headcanons are a good way to pass the time until the next update and for fine tuning things about our Bearers to make them more well-rounded and grounded characters.

This is Vito Basso, just in case you were wondering. :blush:

Very serious question incoming.
Do you think Aeson’s abs are hard enough to grate cheese?

That is all.


#13237

Holy shit. Violet, thank you for the pictures of Aeson. Especially the one with the abs. Just kidding, the puppy is more valuable than the abs.

The picture of Aeson and the puppy should be called:
Dat boi and the good boi. Best duo ever.

Honey, he could grate diamonds.


#13238

…Yeah, you guys keep staring at those abs. I’m just going to be sitting over here, being my patient wolf-y self, staring at the Tumblr in anticipation for the next little writing short (I hope it’s going to be one of the girls; they don’t often seem to get much spotlight). :sweat_smile:

#13239

Hey, I love everyone’s abs equally! I bet Calypso’s abs could reflect light and blind innocent bystanders.


#13240

:heart_decoration: Always, hun! I’m your gurl. :wink:

“Dat Boi and the Good Boi” should be framed in the Louvre.

Now you’re talking! Finally, someone’s asking the important questions.

:100: :gem:

Found some cool little songs that make me think of a bearer trying to be a hero but failing miserably-
Monster by MILCK

Lyrics

Mercy, mercy
Chains all wrapped around me, around me
Try to break free from the darker part of me
Mercy, mercy, please

I forget myself and my good nature
When I let temptation get the better of me
Oh, mercy me

All I see (monster)
Is a monster in me
All I see (monster)
Is a monster in me

She is made of skeletons
I tried to bury long ago
Her fingers always on the trigger
Oh, no, no, no

All I see (monster)
Is a monster in me
All I see (monster)
Is a monster in me

(Oh monster, oh monster
Oh monster, oh monster)

The monster is me

(Oh monster, oh monster
Oh monster, oh monster)

I want to be the hero you need
I want to be brave, I want to believe
But I take all the light and make it go black
Who could love somebody like that?

All I see
Is a monster in me
All I see (monster)
Is a monster in me, me

(Oh monster, oh monster)
That monster is me
(Oh monster, oh monster)

All I see is a monster
A monster, in me

-and a bearer siding with Cronus

Dark Matter by Les Frictions

Lyrics

I am the keeper
I am the secret
I am the answer
I am the end
Dragged by the wind
Taken by the stars
Carried with the madness and scars
Tear down the hallows
Take back eternity
Puppets learn to pull strings
And cut down the user’s lead
Don’t stop, don’t think, move up and don’t blink now
On your knees
Pray for rain
Don’t breathe when you take your aim
On your knees pray for rain
Don’t breathe when you take your aim
So climb up and come clean
Blow back that smoke screen
It’s all here, It’s all you
Get clear on the darker view
Don’t stop, don’t think, don’t look back
You’re a bolt of lightning in the sky now
Don’t stop, don’t think, don’t look back
I’ve pulled you in, prepare to die now
I am Dark Matter
Your road to ruin
I am Dark Matter
I’m your undoing
Bring me your soul
Bring me your hate
In my name you will create
Bring me your fear
Bring me your pain
You will destroy in my name

I feel like the Cronus one can be a combined POV of Cronus and the bearer but the duality of it makes it even more interesting to me :eyes:

Personally as for the song thing, I always felt that “Empty Words” by Death was the perfect fit for Aegon. Here’s the lyrics.

Summary

Ashes and promises share a bond
Through the winds of change
Words are blown away
When visions that should be
Are tattooed in your mind
The power to let go
Is sometimes hard to find
The answer cannot be found
In the writing of others
Or the words of a trained mind
In a precious world of memories
We find ourselves confined
Claws so razor sharp
Ripping at the spirit
Promises a potential to hurt
Is anything real?
When forever is to be until
Deep inside, in the world of empty words…
No escaping from those haunting
Empty words…
Do you ever feel it?
A craving that is so strong
To by thought rewind in order to find
Expectations that shined through the doubt
That soon would turn into the price
Of what a word will be worth
When tomorrow comes
To be and we are left
Standing on our own-
And seeing what is real…
The answer cannot be found
In the writing of others
Or the words of a trained mind
In a precious world of memories
We find ourselves confined
Claws so razor sharp
Ripping at the spirit

And for Loki, it would have to be “Circle” by Slipknot.

Summary

Give me the dust of my father
Stand on the face of the ancients
Bare the secret flesh of time itself
Follow me (follow me)
I’ve come so far behind again
Follow me (follow me)
Wish so hard I’m there again
Follow me (follow me)
Follow me (follow me)
All that I wanted the dreams I had before
All that I needed I’ve never needed more
All of my questions are answers to my sins
All of my endings waiting to begin
I know the way that I faulter
Can’t be afraid of my patience
There’s a sacred place where Razel keeps safe
Follow me (follow me)
I’ve seen so much I’m behind again
Follow me (follow me)
I feel so bad I’m in love again
Follow me (follow me)
All that I wanted the dreams I had before
All that I needed I’ve never needed more
All of my questions are answers to my sins
All of my endings waiting to begin

A song for my Damon is “So What” by Pink. The song Centuries is also one for him.


#13248

My sides! I can’t stop laughing lmao that was completely unexpected


#13249

I don’t have any songs for my Bearer because my playlist is almost entirely made of Disney Songs :frowning:


#13250

Why so many people and comments?


#13251

Probably because this WIP happens to be one of the most popular ones on this website right now


#13252

That and most people tend to have some level of familiarity with Greek mythology and the Greek Gods/Goddess, so there’s a good deal of things that can be discussed about Children of the Gods while the rewrite is being done.


#13253

You can thank Disney, world history classes in school and video games for that.
