I don’t even know where I was going with this but it’s another headcanon @-@
APOLLO, THE MOOD BOARD
though note that the particular medical symbol with one snake is the rod of asclepius, who is actually apollo’s son and the god of just medicine
the one with two snakes and feathers, however, is actually a symbol of hermes and associated with commerce - it got confused with the rod of asclepius over time as the two look similar (although, some could argue that some medical practices DO value commerce over health, but that’s another issue, haha)
sorry to correct your lovely board, i just wanted to comment on that!

Medusa was a beautiful maiden but was a high priestess in the Temple of Athena in Athens, sworn to be a virgin. However, but when she was caught being raped by the Lord of the Sea, Poseidon, while worshiping in Athena’s temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa’s beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone. She would sometimes be described as the “living personification of death.”
a quick middle of the night drawing of that heartbreaking scene in the middle of the battle of the labyrinth.

I was trying to find something worse than my family reunion and then it hit me…
Octavian’s family reunion.
He’d rather stay in Camp where everyone hates him than be with his family
Nico di Angelo being really nervous about asking a boy out and him bringing flowers with him but he’s so nervous that the flowers end up wilting in his hands and he’s freaking out even more and it’s too late to replace them with new flowers and I don’t know where I’m going with this but imagine really cute flustered nico asking out a boy
Then imagine the flowers suddenly going back to looking beautiful and he looks behind his shoulder and Persephone is there and he’s super confused because “WHY I THOUGHT YOU HATED ME” and she just rolls her eyes like “I just want you to move out of the house someday, kid” but she’s actually just acting tough cause she’s about to offer the boy Nico likes some FRUIT if that’s what it takes because Nico deserves joy
Bianca gets flustered super easily and Thalia can’t resist uwu
commission for Medusa! i wanted to draw a pretty Medusa with a fancy snake bun
(9/9) Greek Gods/Goddesses
POSEIDON (/pəˈseɪdən/; Greek: Ποσειδῶν, pronounced [pose͜edɔ́͜ɔn]) God of the sea, brother to Zeus and Hades. He is also referred to as the Earth-Shaker or Tamer of Horses, being the God of earthquakes, storms, and horses as well. According to some folklore, he was saved by his mother Rhea when his father Cronus tried to devour his children. She concealed him within a flock of lambs and told Cronus she had given birth to a colt. He was in the running to become Patron God of Athens against Athena, but when the people chose her, Atlantis became his domain.
