  1. I've been meaning to make a thread like this for a long time. I've been searching this forum for a long time and have yet to find a single greek person other than me dwelling here. I'm starting to believe that there is none... hell from what i know from talking around with people there is none that knows even remotely what the situation in Greece is like. So i am going to make a simple... yet very hard question. How much do you really know about Greece? I realize this might seem like a very general question but it's a start from which other questions can come from. Like... what do you think about the Greeks, the current situation of Greece e.t.c. If there is something you always wanted to ask, or an impression you always had upon Greece please feel free to mention it here. However know that if it is false i will not hesitate to correct it... always keeping my cool and kindness on. Warning:Political issues, history, economy may be discussed here. Just sayin...
  2. If each of the Mane 6 were Demigods which Greek God would be their parent? My list is: Twilight: Athena Pinkie Pie: Dionysus Rarity: Aphrodite Rainbow Dash: Hermes Fluttershy: Pan Applejack: Demeter
  3. In classical Greek mythology, when Pegasus struck the ground on a mountain's sides, it caused springs to burst out. These springs became sacred to the Muses, who raised Pegasus after Athena brought the winged horse to them, earning his association with the Muses and inspiration. Since Rainbow Dash herself is a pegasus, how do you think she would also be as inspirational as the classic Pegasus of mythology?
  4. I'm looking for information from fellow bronies/pegasisters. I am not a history expert so, I don't know. This is what I found while I was looking on google: Augustus was the founder of the Roman Empire and its first Emperor, ruling from 27 BC until his death in 14 AD. He was born Gaius Octavius into an old and wealthy equestrian branch of the plebeian Octavii family. I also looked up just Octavia on Google and got cars, the pony of course, and Octavians sister, Octavia the Younger: Octavia the Younger, also known as Octavia Minor or simply Octavia, was the sister of the first Roman Emperor, Augustus, half-sister of Octavia the Elder, and fourth wife of Mark Antony. I'm still not seeing it, so any help, please?
  5. I wish to touch multiple issues with this so mods... bear with me even if the tittle doesn't touch all subjects. So... let me say a few things about myself first. My name is Dennis or Dionysios and i come from Greece. Unfrotunately while i have found some greek bronies upon the Internet i unfortunately haven't stumbled upon any of you who share the same nationality with me. I litterally feel like i'm the only greek guy out here. It's seriously baffling... maybe Mlp isn't that popular in Greece? Hmmm.... In any case let me just start to say something here. I have noticed some people here on the forums mistakenly quoting popular greek myths just from the way they have seen them from movies. I sometimes feel that shows and movies litterally KILL the myth they choose to depict. That's not just the myths though... that's history as well. Let me just say an example... The "300" movie were supposedly 300 stood up against the Persian army... was a joke... I'll have you know that there were actually over 1400. I will not delve more into the subject because i could talk hours about this i'll just say out of 1400 we glorified the time-old tradition of 300 war mongering spartans. That is all. Now back to MLP i have seen that MLP has taken a quite... better view of the mythology. In any case it at least respects and is truthful to the myth even if it changes the attitude and it's approach on the myth. So far i haven't seen a case of inaccuracy as far as i'm concerned. So question number 1:Do you feel like MLP has respected the mythos and general legends it has touched? That being said i see many similarities with the non-directly referenced things in Mlp. For example see this... In Greek mythology, Nike (Greek: ???? , pronounced [n? ?k??], meaning Victory), was a goddess who personified triumph throughout the ages of the ancient Greek culture. She is known as the Winged Goddess of Victory. Nike is the Goddess of strength, speed, and victory. She is a symbol of how fast the news of victory can travel and the fastest deity in ancient mythology. http://genzoman.deviantart.com/art/Nike-goddess-of-victory-120719773 Notice the similarities anyone? Also did you know? Luna's Original name was Selena http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selene Great similarities i might add... Or perhaps Twilight as Athena with her owl Owlicious? http://himawari-chan.deviantart.com/art/Athena-Twilight-Sparkle-Colored-282291813 Or Applejack as Demeter? http://himawari-chan.deviantart.com/art/Demeter-Applejack-266651025 Fluttershy as Artemis? http://himawari-chan.deviantart.com/art/Artemis-Fluttershy-266662496 Or Pinkie Pie as Dionysos? http://himawari-chan.deviantart.com/art/Dionysus-Pinkie-Pie-266654146 Or... well perhaps i don't think it fits her but Hermes Rainbow Dash? http://himawari-chan.deviantart.com/art/Hermes-Rainbow-Dash-266277121 Or Aphrodite Rarity? http://himawari-chan.deviantart.com/art/Aphrodite-Rarity-266278493 Or Octavia/Lyra Apollo? http://twiddlechimp.deviantart.com/art/Octavia-the-Ponyess-of-Music-244006276 I personally see similarities of Queen Chrysalis to Metis who is a titaness shapeshifter of cunning and wisdom. Or perhaps Proteus "God of Elusive Sea Change" who was capable into transforming anything! Question two:What figures do you see resembling acnient greek gods and why? Or in fact do you see them resembling other pantheons? If so then why... So three... i thought that MLP had stopped referencing Greek Mythology for quite some time... then comes Orthros... allegedly as the myth says brother to Cerberus two-headed dog. Well i was mistaken... it seems the Greek Myth influence is still strong with this one. There are a lot of things that could be encountered... like Scyla and Charibdys or new species like mermaids, or i don't know... anything! So here comes my third and last question... Question number 3:Do you believe that we will see more greek mythology references? Which are the ones you would like to see? What kind of creatures from said mythology would you like to see? LET THE FUN.... BEGIN!!! Note to mods... i know there might be threads about this topic but they seem to be like a year or more old so i figure it's about time i refreshed this.
  6. I just had to make this thread, since I'm so obsessed with Greek mythology (I blame the Percy Jackson series). So, write what each pony would be like. Gender doesn't really matter. example: Twilight: Athena Celestia: Apollo Luna: Artemis Cadence: Aphrodite and so on, and so on. Please post, I need to stop my obsession!
  7. and why Zeus-King of the gods Hera-Queen of the gods, and marriage Poseidon- God of the sea Demeter- Goddess of the harvest Ares- God of war Athena- Goddess of wisdom Aphrodite- Goddess of love Apollo- God of the sun, poetry, prophecy Artemis- Goddess of the hunt, wildlife, virginity, and the moon Hephaestus- God of fire, blacksmithing, and invention Hermes- messenger of the gods Dionysus- God of wine my favorites would be... God - Poseidon, I love the ocean. Goddess - Demeter or Aphrodite I like all the goddesses except Hera.
  8. I myself am Gnostic (The Golden Dawn/Samael Aun Weor kind) and have been venturing into the belief systems of others for quite some time. And yes, I do consider Atheism a valid form of spirituality since it does touch on the physical universe. What dose everypony here practice/believe?
  9. Good afternoon, all! I am Odysseus, King of Ithyca. I led my armies into the Trojan war, came up with the idea to build that giant horse, it took me 10 years to get back home. I have traveled much in my time, so if you have any question about anything, ranging from my journeys to the modern world, I will gladly give my take on it. I will admit, travel hasn't done much for my complexion, or hair.
