Hello. My name is Achilles. You killed my best friend. Prepare to die.
The Origins of Heroes. From Barry B. Powell’s new free verse translation of The Iliad by Homer. Barry B. Powell is Halls-Bascom Professor of Classics Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
Oh, look at that. I’ve been impaled.
"Hateful to me as the gates of Hades is that man who hides one googly eye in his heart and speaks another."
On second thought, let’s not go to Troy. It is a silly place.
I’m on a boat motherfucker take a look at me
Straight flowin’ on a boat on the deep blue sea
Bustin’ five knots, wind whippin out my coat
You can’t stop me motherfucker cause I’m on a boat
I’m ridin on a dolphin, doin’ flips and shit
The dolphin’s splashin’, gettin e’rybody all wet
But this ain’t Aegae, this is real as it gets
I’m on a boat motherfucker, don’t you ever forget.
OP: Name a canon that is utterly unsuited to a coffeeshop AU. Let meme prove it can be done. I will start with the Iliad.
These so-called ‘feelings’ are ruining my reputation as a heartless bitch.
