In one of the future books of the UnHoly Pursuit Medusa is mentioned. But not according to the legend. I looks at a legend to see if make sense before embarking on the task of writing about it.
The story of Medusa makes no sense at all. Poseidon raped the beautiful priestess in one of Athena’s temples, the goddess was so pissed off that Medusa had somehow not managed to fend off the advances of the god of the sea she turned her into a monster with snakes for hair, and then she later helped Perseus kill Medusa.
Maybe I only needed to look at mythology for the answers to the Hypothetical Question post.
How on earth were a mere mortal supposed to fend off a god if they were as powerful as mythology say. I saw it as an ancient case of blaming the victim rather than confronting the offender. I guess this would have resulted into a fight between Zeus and Poseidon had Athena confronted him. Poseidon was a first tier god and Athena wasn’t. But still it created a formation of blaming the victim for what happened to them. So I wrote it differently.
Aren’t you glad mythology isn’t true? Imagine some jerk god being able to turn you into a monster all because he or she felt like it. Now, what happened as to why the legend or sorry was created? I don’t know but it was created to explain something which occurred. All mythology is.
