    MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 35-36 ~ Short Stories - Mythology!

    MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 35-36 ~ Short Stories - Mythology!




    This fortnight's art contest category is Short Stories with the theme set as Mythology, as suggested by Akia999. "Mythology" is a rich theme and people can dig all those ancient tales to provide us their own view about them. Here's an example:

    Quote Originally Posted by A Broken Mind
    There are many tragic tales and sorrowful myths spread from the lips of one dreamer to another, but no tale is quite as morose as the story of dear, sweet Cassandra. Cassandra was a beautiful, young princess in the time when there was not one god but many, in the time when Zeus ruled the Heavens and mortals feared the vengeance of the god's distemper.

    Cassandra's beauty brought many suitors, but none more powerful or handsome than Apollo, the god of prophecy and light. Apollo saw the fair Cassandra singing by a stream, when he decided he must have her as his own. So, he came to her in her dreams, time and time again, offering her anything she wished. Cassandra, believing these visions to be nothing more than fantasy, asked for a beautiful golden chariot and horses as white as winter snow. The next day when she awoke, there was a chariot of gold led by two alabaster horses. However, Cassandra was no daydreamer, she was practical in everyway, and to believe a god would so woo her, was not what logic told her must be true. So, she ruled it off as coincidence.

    "Mythology" - "Retrieving Mjolnir" by "yukihime03"

    Spoiler show


    I admit this is not my best story since I wrote it only in two hours and I'm not used to short story, but since I have some time and I love mythology, why not?
    It's about Thor and Loki on their quest to retrieve Mjolnir, Thor's hammer. I was thinking of writing a Greek myth, but then I thought it's too mainstream, so I wrote a Norse myth instead. And hey, I love Loki.

    Mythology - "Odin, Gungnir and Sleipnir" by FaustXIII

    Spoiler show


    I'm not an expert in Norse Mythology, so I read some details about it in the internet, acquired an idea and made this story. Hope you guys will like it. It's very predictable though. I apologize for the grammatical errors and typos.

    Mythology - "Dido's Lament" by riki

    Spoiler show


    This is based off Book IV of The Aeneid. I remembered translating the epic when I took Latin in HS and enjoyed reading it especially that book. I wrote it from Dido's point of view and hopefully did a good job of it.
