I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger lover for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love.
Today’s topic is : God or Goddess BFF (Mythological character you want as a friend)
I wonder if a God or Goddess really would make a great best friend!
If I look at all the Gods and Goddesses I know (or a good bunch of them as I don’t know all Gods and Goddesses from all cultures in the world) I have difficulites to find a good candidate for a BFF.
Let’s list them and check:
Well maybe if you are the party girl or boy but he would be drunk all the time. Not great to have meaningful chat. Plus he seemed always leering at young undressed ladies so …NO;
–Apollo? OK he would be great to look at but I bet as a womanizer he would be too obssessed courting and bedding girls to really have time for a friendly outing. And I don’t even speak of flying in his chariot every day to ensure the sun will rise. BORING. So …no!
–Hades? Well I guess it would be a very exclusive friendship as I think he would be too intimidating for other friends to join. The parties would all have to happen “down under” and no shopping trip with him as he is stuck in his realm.
–Persephone? I am not really into growing flowers and crops and all that jazz. It would also be a part time friendship as she has to go six months a year being all cozy with Hades.
Well she loves animals even if she hunts them and I love them too. A match made in Heaven? Not exactly as she is really serious on the “maiden till death” (and she never dies as she is immortal). No boys allowed then… No too strict.
Too beautiful! She would draw all the boys attention to her and I would always be in her shadow. I don’t mind a friend more attractive than I but a Goddess I would never stand a chance so …no.
OK he plays with his big hammer and based on the movie is great to look at but ….he has serious issues with his brother Loki. I predict really bad outcome and fights at every family gathering.
–Loki? See Thor above plus he is hell bent on destroying the human world…
-Poseidon? I love swimming but again it could be a little bit tiring after some time
And don’t speak of Zeus or Odin or how you’d like to name him as he usually is unfaithful to his wife and can do very bad things when he is angry!
So today, sorry Dani but I can’t come up with a God or Goddess I’d like to be BFF with!
See you next week! And if in the meantime you found the perfect God to befriend, let me know.
Thanks for reading!
