Deirdre and Naoise, Domestic Scenes II“I cannot eat the flesh of a hare, you know that and they know that,” Deirdre said of the night before as she harvested leeks and cabbage with her friends, “I do not want my child born with a hare-lip.”
“Men,” Brìghid and Dearbhail said in concert, all of them sharing a look of annoyance.
Deirdre was close to fruition of her pregnancy and the cravings and the weight of her increasing belly were vexing her, together with the nights without sleep that were growing more frequent.
“Ailpean still has trouble with that, that there are things that a pregnant woman cannot eat,” said Eithne, “But he does his best. And at least my kindred are close around me; I have not gone hungry yet, with the goodwill of the Cailleach.”
“Aodh did the same thing,” Mór agreed, “I cannot complain.”
“And there’s no room to complain,” said Deirdre, her vexation ebbing, “My husband and his brothers
This group is for artwork that depicts a mythological individual, event, or theme.
Mythology isn't the same as fandom, and isn't the same as fantasy. If you are not sure, please read this journal entry:
What is Mythology Art? (CLICK HERE)
This gives some guidelines as well as specific examples of what type of work belongs here and what does not.
For visual art: if the mythological element is not overtly evident in the image, you should include information about the mythological significance of the piece in the artist's comments.
For literature submissions: If the mythological content is not obvious in the text (perhaps it is a retelling of a mythological cycle or involves characters/Gods/themes from mythological lore), please make the following evident in the artist's comments: Which Mythological Lore you are Referencing and That it is a work of fiction.
Scholarly work, research papers or otherwise academic thesis' that discuss mythological topics and ideas are acceptable. This sort of discussion is encouraged.
Finally, things to remember about the submission process itself:
PLEASE LIMIT YOUR SUBMISSIONS TO 3 PER WEEK.
We are human beings. Sometimes we hit the wrong button. Sometimes it takes us a while to get back to you. It happens, but it doesn't mean you are not important or that we hate you.
We cannot possibly offer feedback every time we decline an image. If you would like to request feedback as to why your image was refused, please submit a note to us and those who have available insight will get back to you AS SOON AS WE CAN. This can be a few days, but often no longer than a week. If you have a problem with non-immediate reactions (though sometimes they are), please exercise patience. If you cannot be patient, we're probably not the right group for you.
Absolutely none of us want any of our members or guests to feel put out, but we cannot please everyone. Many of our admins/contributors are -very- well versed in mythology, though we each have our areas of strength and weakness. If you can quote the lore, chances are we like you.
