Although romantic love is the most common written about form of love. It’s often not the deepest. Agape and Philia love often goes deeper. Romantic love must have agape and Philia love to turn into a lasting love, Pragma love.

Types of Love

  1. Eros, or sexual passion. The first kind of love was eros, named after the Greek god of fertility, and it represented the idea of sexual passion and desire. We call it romantic love.
  2. Philia, or deep friendship.
  3. Ludus, or playful love.
  4. Agape, or love for everyone. Commonly called brotherly or sisterly love.
  5. Pragma, or longstanding love.
  6. Philautia, or love of the self.

 

 

      Philautia, or love of the self is very important. One must love themselves before they can extend it to anyone else.

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga," which should be finished this year. She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book came from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
