JUSTICE IS SWEETER THAN AMBROSIA/THE DESTINY OF HUMANKIND


AH JUSTICE, THE MOST ADMIRABLE FORCE IN THE UNIVERSE, AND THAT WHICH MY MIGHTY WRATH DELIVERS. PROMETHEUS IS NOW GOING TO EXPERIENCE THIS JUSTICE EVERYDAY FOR THE REST OF ETERNITY. HEPHAESTUS’S INVINCIBLE BLACKSMITH MAGIC, WHICH BOUND HERA SO TIGHTLY, HAS NOW CHAINED PROMETHEUS TO A BOULDER, WHERE HE SHALL REMAIN FOR ALL TIME. DEPRIVING HIM OF HIS LIBERTY IS NOT THE ONLY PUNISHMENT I HAVE PLACED UPON HIM, OF COURSE; THOSE WHO DARE TO DEFY ME WILL FEEL THE FULL EXTENT OF MY DIVINE WRATH. I HAVE DECREED THAT FOR EVERY DAY IN THE REST OF PROMETHEUS’S MISERABLE IMMORTAL LIFE, HE WILL BE VISITED BY AN EAGLE, THE BIRD THAT IS MY SYMBOL SO HE SHALL FOREVER BE REMINDED OF WHO HE DEFIED, AND WHOSE WRATH HE IS NOW SUFFERING. THE EAGLE WILL TEAR THROUGH THE FLESH OF HIS BELLY TO REACH HIS INNARDS, AND THEN IT WILL VICIOUSLY PECK AND PULL AT HIS LIVER, CONSUMING IT ALL. DUE TO HIS IMMORTALITY, PROMETHEUS’S LIVER WILL BE REJUVENATED IN THE NIGHT, ONLY TO SUFFER THE SAME FATE THE FOLLOWING DAY, TURNING THE BLESSINGS OF GODHOOD INTO AN UNSPEAKABLE CURSE. YES, JUSTICE IS SUCH A MARVELLOUS SERVICE, ONE THAT I AM HAPPY TO PROVIDE.

OR COURSE; IN DELIVERING THIS PUNISHMENT TO PROMETHEUS, I’M NOT GOING TO OVERLOOK THE MORTALS FOR WHOM HIS CONTINUOUSLY DEFIES HIS KING. THEY HAVE ENJOYED A GOLDEN AGE UNDER PROMETHEUS’S WATCH FOR FAR TOO LONG WHILST THEIR GODS HAVE WARRED AND SUFFERED IN THE DIVINE SPHERES BEYOND THEM. IT SEEMS ONLY FAIR, NOW THAT THEIR CARETAKER IS EXPERIENCING SUCH AGONIES FOR THEIR SAKE, THAT THEY KNOW EVIL SO THEY MAY FULLY APPRECIATE HIS SACRIFICES. OH, PROMETHEUS’S PUNISHMENT MAY BE GENIUS, BUT WHAT I HAVE DEVISED FOR MANKIND IS UNDOUBTEDLY MY MOST CREATIVE ENDEAVOUR. I, AND THE GODS OF OLYMPUS, HAVE FASHIONED A BEAUTIFUL EVIL TO GIFT MANKIND WITH.

CALLING UPON HEPHAESTUS’S DIVINE SKILL, I TOLD HIM TO CRAFT A STRIKINGLY GORGEOUS CREATURE FROM CLAY, AS PROMETHEUS DID HIS HUMAN BEINGS, BUT HEPHAESTUS WAS TO CRAFT IT IN THE IMAGE OF THE GLORIOUS GODDESSES, A FORM ALIEN TO THE MORTAL MEN. WHEN THIS LOVELY CREATURE WAS IMBUED WITH LIFE, I CALLED UPON EACH OLYMPIAN GOD TO GRANT HER A GIFT TO MAKE HER ALL THE MORE ENTICING AND TERRIBLE. WITH HER WISDOM MY MAGNIFICENT ATHENA TAUGHT HER NEEDLEWORK AND WEAVING, WHILST APHRODITE GAVE HER GRACE, CRUEL LONGINGS AND CARES THAT WEARY LIMBS. HERMES PLACED UPON HER TONGUE LIES AND CRAFTY WORDS, AND GAVE HER A SHAMEFUL MIND AND DECEITFUL NATURE TO MATCH. SHE WAS ADORNED WITH BEAUTIFUL JEWELS, A GLORIOUS GARLAND AND DRESS THAT MADE HER ALL MORE WONDERFUL TO LOOK UPON. SHE WOULD BE THE FIRST WOMAN AMONG MEN. WE NAMED HER PANDORA, MEANING ALL GIFTED, AND IN HER HANDS I PLACED A JAR THAT I TOLD HER NOT TO OPEN, IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THE CURIOSITY SHE HAD BEEN GIVEN WOULD SOON MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR HER TO HEED MY WORDS.

HERMES DELIVERED HER TO PROMETHEUS’S FOOLISH BROTHER EPIMETHEUS, WHO WAS POWERLESS TO RESIST SUCH A DELIGHTFUL CREATURE. HE IMMEDIATELY DECIDED TO MAKE HER HIS WIFE, THE STUPID OAF, ENSURING HER A PLACE ON EARTH. IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE THE CURIOSITY WE HAD INSTILLED IN PANDORA BEGAN TO OVERWHELM HER, AND SHE GRAVITATED TOWARDS THE FORBIDDEN JAR. TEMPTATION WON HER OVER, AND THE WOMAN UNSTOPPED THE JAR, LETTING IT ALL OUT, EVERY MISERY, BURDENSOME TOIL AND DEATHLY SICKNESS, ALONG WITH A MYRIAD OF OTHER PAINS AND CALAMITIES THAT WILL FOREVERMORE BEFALL MANKIND. THE CAREFREE GOLDEN AGE OF MAN HAD TRULY COME TO AN END. IN TERROR PANDORA REPLACED THE LID OF THE JAR, BEFORE THE ONE GOOD WITHIN COULD ESCAPE, HOPE. I PLACED HOPE IN THE JAR SO THE HUMAN RACE WOULD SURVIVE THE EVILS THEY WOULD NOW ENDURE; PANDORA HAD RELEASED THE CALAMITIES INTO THE WORLD TO RESIDE AMONGST ALL OF HUMANKIND, BUT AS SHE HAD KEPT HOPE INSIDE, IT WOULD FOREVER REMAIN WITH HER, UNTIL SHE BIRTHED FUTURE GENERATIONS WHO WOULD CARRY HOPE INSIDE THEM AS WELL. IT SEEMS THAT THE SALVATION OF THE HUMAN RACE LIES WITH THE SOURCE OF THEIR MISERY, AND THEY MAY ONLY UNLOCK IT BY BRINGING FORTH CHILDREN WHO WOULD HAVE THE POWER TO RISE ABOVE EVILS AND SUFFERING.

I SEE THAT IT MAY BE MANY AGES BEFORE THE CHILDREN OF MAN AND WOMANKIND BECOME STRONG ENOUGH TO OVERWHELM EVILS, AND FUTURE RACES OF HUMANS WILL WALLOW IN THEIR SUFFERINGS, EXPERIENCING A STATE OF STEADY DECLINE BEFORE THE HOPE THEY BREED DEMANDS THAT THEY RETURN TO GLORY, WISER FOR WHAT THEY HAVE ENDURED.

NO MORE MR. NICE GOD


THE TIME HAS COME FOR ME TO SET AN EXAMPLE TO ALL WHO MAY DARE CONTEST MY AUTHORITY AS KING OF THE GODS AND SOVEREIGN OF THE UNIVERSE. IMPRISONMENT IN TARTARUS WILL SEEM LIKE CAPTIVITY IN ARCADIA NEXT TO THE NEW PUNISHMENTS I HAVE DEVISED.

THE FIRST WRETCHED, DESERVING SUBJECT OF MY JUST WRATH IS THAT DESPICABLE LITTLE TRICKSTER PROMETHEUS, WHO HAS ONCE AGAIN CHOSEN TO DEFY MY JUDGMENT. WHEN HEPHAESTUS’S FORGE WAS CREATED AND EQUIPPED WITH FIRE, THE LITTLE BASTARD REALISED THAT THE ELEMENT I HAD TAKEN FROM HIS PRECIOUS LITTLE MEN WAS ONCE AGAIN ACCESSIBLE TO HIM, AND, FULL OF ARROGANCE AND VILE REBELLION, HE LIT A TORCH FROM THE FIRES OF THE FORGE AND RETURNED IT TO THE MORTAL BEINGS. I CANNOT ALLOW SUCH A FLAGRANT ACT OF DEFIANCE TO MY AUTHORITY (FROM A TITAN, NO LESS!) GO WITHOUT SEVERE PUNISHMENT. PROMETHEUS’S LITTLE PETS WILL LEARN THAT THEIR NEWFOUND ENLIGHTENMENT COMES AT A SEVERE PRICE, AND THIS TIME THEY WON’T BE THE ONLY ONES TO SUFFER MY WRATH!

I'M BRINGING ORDER BACK, YOU MOUNT OLYMPIANS DON'T KNOW HOW TO ACT

MY SUPREME WISDOM HAS KILLED TWO PUNY MORTALS WITH ONE THUNDERBOLT, AS THE SAYING GOES, AND ONCE AGAIN RETURNED PEACE TO MOUNT OLYMPUS. FACED WITH THE NEED TO LIBERATE HERA FROM HER MAJESTIC TRAP (AND THUS SAVE THE SANITY OF THE REMAINING OLYMPIANS FROM HER MADDENING SHRIEKS) AND SETTLE THE QUESTION OF WHO WOULD TAKE APHRODITE AS THEIR WIFE, INSPIRATION STRUCK ME AND EVERYTHING FELL INTO ITS RIGHTFUL PLACE. I WOULD TRADE HERA’S FREEDOM FOR APHRODITE’S HAND IN MARRIAGE, AND THUS BOTH OF MY PROBLEMS WOULD BE ELIMINATED IN ONE JUST THUNDERCLAP. BETTER STILL, THE ONE GOD WHO WOULD BE ABLE TO FREE HERA WOULD BE THE GOD WHOSE FAVOUR I WISHED TO WIN; HEPHAESTUS, FOR, GROTESQUE AS HE IS, HE POSSESSES VALUABLE DIVINE SKILL.

I SENT FOR HEPHAESTUS, AND ALTHOUGH HE INITIALLY FEIGNED A FAILURE TO REALISE MY SUMMONS, A FEW PRECARIOUSLY PLACED THUNDERBOLTS AROUND HIS PERSON CONVINCED HIM TO HEED MY CALLS. HE STOOD BEFORE ME AND I PRESENTED MY DEAL, AND TO ADD A LITTLE EXTRA AMBROSIA TO THE OFFER, I ALSO PROMISED HIM A FORGE WORTHY OF A GOD SUCH AS HIMSELF, EQUIPPED WITH FIRE, A TOOL EXCLUSIVE TO MOUNT OLYMPUS THESE DAYS, AND THE ASSISTANCE OF THE INDUSTRIOUS CYCLOPES. ALTHOUGH HE ARRIVED WITH THE CONVICTION THAT NO WORDS WOULD CONVINCE HIM TO AID HIS MOTHER’S RELEASE, AS I LAID OUT MY OFFER I COULD SENSE HIS STUBBORNNESS SLIPPING, AND WHEN I FINALLY PRESENTED HIM WITH APHRODITE, HIS ATTITUDE TURNED TO ONE OF COMPLETE COMPLIANCE. APHRODITE GRIMACED IN DISGUST WHEN SHE LAID EYES OF HEPHAESTUS, BUT I THOUGHT THE SIGHT OF THE TWO OF THEM TOGETHER, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GODDESS IN THE PANTHEON ALONGSIDE THE UGLIEST GOD IN THE UNIVERSE, HAD A CERTAIN DELIGHTFUL SYMMETRY TO IT.

I MADE MY VOW WITH HEPHAESTUS, AND ASSURING HIM OF MY DEDICATION TO JUSTICE, HE RELEASED HERA WITH CONFIDENCE THAT I’D KEEP MY WORD. HE USED A FASCINATING FORM OF BLACKSMITH’S MAGIC TO BREAK HER BONDS; HE CHIPPED AWAY AT THE CHAINS WITH THE BRUTE FORCE OF A BLACKSMITH’S HAMMER, BUT IT WAS THE UNIQUE ANGLES, MOVEMENTS AND MEASURED FORCE HE USED UPON CERTAIN POINTS ALONG THE CHAINS THAT WAS THE KEY TO FREEING THE GODDESS. THE MOMENT SHE WAS LIBERATED HERA MADE TO LEAP ON HEPHAESTUS AND INFLICT AN ETERNITY OF THE MOST UNSPEAKABLE TORTURES UPON HIM, SO I GRABBED HER AND HELD HER BACK. HOLDING HER IN MY ARMS AS SHE STRUGGLED AND RAGED LIKE A INSANE, BLOODTHIRSTY BEAST WAS MORE INTOXICATING THAN I HAD IMAGINED, AND I WOULD HAVE MUCH LIKED TO HAVE CONTINUED TO HOLD HER, BUT IT HAD ALREADY BEEN DECIDED THAT HERA WOULD BE SENT TO RESIDE IN ARCADIA UNTIL HER RAGE TOWARDS HEPHAESTUS HAD SUBSIDED TO A LESS INSANE LEVEL, FOR THE SAKE OF HIS SAFETY.

ALTHOUGH THE OTHER GODS WERE BITTER, THEY ACCEPTED THAT APHRODITE’S MARRIAGE TO HEPHAESTUS WAS NECESSARY TO SECURE HERA’S FREEDOM. I HONOURED MY WORD, OF COURSE, AND ALLOWED HEPHAESTUS TO JOIN US ON MOUNT OLYMPUS. THANKS TO ME, ALL IS NOW RIGHT WITH THE GODS.

WHAT AN IRRITATING STATE OF AFFAIRS


EURGH, HAVING BEEN FREED FROM ONE HEADACHE I AM NOW SUDDENLY FACED WITH SO MANY MORE SOURCES OF IRRITATION. HERA’S SCREAMS HAVE NOT SUBSIDED, IF ANYTHING THEY HAVE BECOME MORE VICIOUS AND FRENZIED; SHE HAS BEGUN TO BEHAVE LIKE A DEMENTED MONSTER, SCREECHING AND ATTEMPTING TO LASH OUT AT ANYONE WHO APPROACHES HER IN HER ENTRAPPED STATE. NOW THAT THE GODDESS OF MARRIAGE IS BOUND TO HER THRONE, AN OLD CONCERN HAS ARISEN TO THE FOREFRONT OF CONVERSATION AMONGST THE OLYMPIANS. APHRODITE, THE BEDAZZLING, ENCHANTING GODDESS OF LOVE AND BEAUTY, HAS ALWAYS BEEN CONSIDERED A MOST DESIRABLE PRIZE BY THE GODS OF THE PANTHEON. WHEN I ESTABLISHED THE OLYMPIAN ORDER I REALISED THAT THE PASSION AND YEARNING SHE INSPIRES WOULD BE A THREAT TO THE BALANCE I HAD CREATED, FOR THE JEALOUSLY THAT WOULD DOUBTLESSLY ARISE AMONG THE GODS OVER POSSESSION OF THE LOVELY BEING COULD LEAD TO A WAR BETWEEN THE OLYMPIANS. HERA HAD THE SAME REALISATION, AND WITH HER AUTHORITY AS THE GODDESS OF MARRIAGE SHE DECLARED THAT NO GOD COULD TAKE APHRODITE AS THEIR BRIDE, ELIMINATING THE THREAT TO OUR ORDER. NOW THAT HERA IS TRAPPED AND POWERLESS, THE QUESTION OF APHRODITE’S HAND IN MARRIAGE HAS ONCE AGAIN BECOME A CONCERN THAT I MUST DEAL WITH. GRR, AT TIMES I WISH I WEREN’T THE KING OF GODS.

...WAIT, NO I DON’T.

HEPHAESTUS'S WRATH

HA, IT SEEMS THAT HEPHAESTUS IS MORE CUNNING AND BITTER THAN I GAVE HIM CREDIT FOR. THE GIFT HE WAS SO EAGER TO PRESENT TO HERA, A MAJESTIC GOLDEN THRONE CRAFTED BY DIVINE EXPERTISE, WAS IN FACT A TRAP. OH! THE LOOK ON HERA’S FACE WHEN SHE REALISED HER FOLLY! AND TO THINK THAT WHEN HEPHAESTUS OFFERED IT TO HER, THE COLD, INACCESSIBLE HEART SHE BEARS SEEMED TO MELT SLIGHTLY, AS SHE GAZED UPON THE BEAUTY FORGED BY HER UGLY, UNWANTED CHILD. BUT THEN SHE TOOK HER PLACE UPON THE GOLDEN SEAT, AND AT THAT MOMENT DAZZLING CHAINS, CHARMED WITH INDESTRUCTIBLE PROPERTIES THROUGH BLACKSMITH’S MAGIC, WRAPPED TIGHTLY AROUND HER BODY. THEN FURTHER CHAINS, HEADED BY WICKED SPEARS THAT GLINTED DANGEROUSLY, PLUNGED INTO HER SUPPLE, IMMORTAL FLESH, TEARING THROUGH THE FABRIC OF HER ELEGANT ROBES, AND PINNED HER PAINFULLY IN PLACE. THE TRAP CAUGHT HER NOT ONLY METAPHYSICALLY OFF GUARD, BUT IN THE SINGULAR INSTANCE WHERE SHE BORE HER HEART UNGUARDED, AND TO MY AMAZEMENT, HERA, THE PROUDEST GODDESS IN THE PANTHEON, ACTUALLY CRIED! I HAVE NEVER SEEN HER CRY, AND I MAY HAVE EVEN FELT SORRY FOR HER IF I WEREN’T TOO CONSUMED BY UPROARIOUS LAUGHTER. HER TEARS WERE VERY BRIEF, AND SHE WAS SOON SCREAMING WITH RAGE, SOMETHING FAR MORE COMMON TO HER CHARACTER.

HEPHAESTUS LOOKED UPON HIS DEED WITH GRIM SATISFACTION, AND WHEN HESTIA ASKED HIM HOW HE COULD DO SUCH AN EVIL ACT TO HIS OWN MOTHER, HE SHOT HER A BITTER LOOK AND ANSWERED, “I HAVE NO MOTHER.” BAH, IF HEPHAESTUS THINKS HE HAS PARENT ISSUES, HE SHOULD LEARN HIS FAMILY HISTORY; AT LEAST HERA DIDN’T LOOK UPON HIM AS SUPPER. THE LAME GOD THEN LEFT MOUNT OLYMPUS, WHERE WE WERE ATTEMPTING TO BREAK HERA FREE OF HER BONDS, TO NO AVAIL. NOT EVEN I OR ATHENA COULD SAVE HER FROM THE DIVINE ENTRAPMENT. HER ANGRY CRIES ARE REALLY STARTING TO BECOME IRRITATING, BUT I MUST ADMIT, SEEING HER SO VULNERABLE AND POWERLESS IS VERY ENTICING. UNFORTUNATELY THE OTHER OLYMPIANS REMAIN GATHERED AROUND HER, BUT I CAN STILL WATCH.

MY MAJESTIC DAUGHTER AND HERA'S DISGUSTING SON

BEFORE THE PHANTOM AGONY OVERWHELMED ME, I HAD LEARNT THAT HERA’S DEFORMED SON, NOW KNOWN AS HEPHAESTUS, HAD BEEN RAISED BY THE OCEANID THETIS AND HAD QUICKLY TAKEN TO THE ART OF THE BLACKSMITH. WHEN THE PAIN WITHIN MY SKULL BECAME UNBEARABLE, I FOUND MYSELF GUIDED BY SOME SUPREME WISDOM TO THE DOOR OF HEPHAESTUS’S FORGE. HE TOLD ME THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING LODGED INSIDE MY HEAD CAUSING MY AGONY, AND HE OFFERED TO SPLIT OPEN MY SKULL TO REMOVE IT. I SEIZED UPON ANY OPPORTUNITY TO BE RELIEVED OF MY ANGUISH, SO I AGREED. WHEN HIS GREAT BLACKSMITH’S AXE CLEAVED MY IMMORTAL FOREHEAD, THE MOST BIZARRE AND ASTONISHING EVENT TOOK PLACE. FROM WITHIN MY SKULL, HERALDED BY MY GUSHING BLOOD, BURST FORTH THE MOST MAGNIFICENT GODDESS I HAVE EVER SEEN; CLAD IN SHINING, IMPENETRABLE ARMOUR AND YELLING A WAR CRY SO MIGHTY THAT EVEN OURANOS AND GAIA TREMBLED TO HEAR IT. I IMMEDIATELY KNEW THAT ANY BEING SO MAJESTIC HAD TO BE A PART OF ME, AND I REALISED THAT THIS WAS THE CHILD THAT METIS HAD BEEN CARRYING WHEN I SWALLOWED HER; NOT AN USURPING SON, BUT A GLORIOUS AND FIERCE DAUGHTER, POSSESSING HER MOTHER’S INFINITE WISDOM. AT THAT MOMENT ALL THE PAIN I HAD SUFFERED FOR THE SAKE OF THIS GODDESS’S BIRTH BECAME JUSTIFIED, AND I FELT THAT MY LOSS OF METIS HAD BEEN BALANCED NOW THAT I HAD THIS MOST STUNNING DAUGHTER.

AT FIRST I FEARED THAT METIS HAD SAID UNKIND THINGS OF ME TO OUR DAUGHTER, AND I WOULD BE OUT OF FAVOUR WITH THIS GLORIOUS GODDESS. BUT THIS WAS NOT SO, SHE SAW ME NOT ONLY AS HER FATHER, BUT AS THE ONE WHO HAD BIRTHED HER, AND SHE SWORE HER LOYALTY TO ME, SENSING WITHIN ME A MIGHT AND WISDOM COMPARABLE TO HER OWN. I DID NOT FEAR HER POWER, AS I DID WHEN I SWALLOWED METIS, BUT WAS INCREDIBLY PROUD OF IT, AND I FELT A GREAT AFFECTION TOWARDS MY RESPLENDENT CHILD. SHE BEARS THE NAME ATHENA, AND IS A GODDESS OF WISDOM, REASON AND WARFARE.

I INSISTED ON TAKING HER TO MOUNT OLYMPUS, WHERE SHE WOULD BE MY ETERNAL ADVISOR, AND IN AN ACT OF GENEROSITY BORN OF GRATITUDE I PROPOSED TO BRING HEPHAESTUS WITH US, OFFERING HIM THE ROLE OF BLACKSMITH TO THE GODS. HE WAS EAGER TO TAKE UP MY OFFER, APPARENTLY WISHING TO MAKE AMENDS WITH HIS MOTHER IN THE FORM OF A GIFT HE CRAFTED. I CAN’T WAIT TO SHOW HERA THE MAGNIFICENT BEING I BIRTHED, COMPARED TO GROTESQUE CREATURE SHE BROUGHT TO LIFE, THOUGH I WILL CONCEDE THAT HE IS USEFUL.

AH, ATHENA, YOU ARE A TESTAMENT TO MY MAGNIFICENCE!

AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


WHAT IS THE PHANTOM SOURCE OF THIS INSANE, INCREDIBLE AGONY?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! WHY WON'T IT STOP??!!!??!!!??!!!

HA! HERA AND HER ARROGANCE


MY SISTER HERA GAVE BIRTH TO A MOST SICKLY AND HIDEOUS LOOKING BOY TODAY, AND WAS SO DISGUSTED BY HIS APPEARANCE THAT SHE THREW HIM FROM THE HEAVENS TOWARDS THE EARTH. APPARENTLY SHE CONCEIVED HIM WITHOUT THE SEED OF A GOD. IT’S NO WONDER THE CHILD CAME OUT DEFORMED. IT’S TYPICAL OF HERA TO TRY AND CREATE LIFE BY HERSELF; PROUD HERA, WHO HATES TO RELY ON THE POWERS OF OTHERS. ARROGANT, VAIN, LOVELY HERA WITH HER BOVINE EYES. IF ANY OLYMPIAN WERE TO ATTEMPT TO USURP ME, IT WOULD BE HERA, WHO DETESTS BEING SECOND TO ANYBODY. IT MUST HAVE BEEN ESPECIALLY SHAMEFUL FOR HER TO GIVE BIRTH TO SUCH AN INFERIOR CHILD; I MUST BE SURE TO TAUNT HER FOR IT LATER.

STRANGE...MY HEAD ACHES. IT HAS NEVER DONE SO WITHOUT INJURY BEFORE.

OH HI THERE PROMETHEUS

WELL HELLO PROMETHEUS. WOULD YOU AT LOOK WHAT I HAVE HERE:


THAT'S RIGHT, IT'S THE FIRE OF MANKIND. WELL, ACTUALLY IT'S MY FIRE NOW. I'M GOING TO USE THIS TO MAKE PORK DRIPPING WITH THAT FAT YOUR MORTALS SO KINDLY SACRIFICED TO ME. YOU SHOULD KEEP AN EYE ON THOSE POOR LITTLE MEN, THEY MIGHT CATCH A CHILL DOWN THERE WITH NOTHING TOASTY TO HUDDLE AROUND.
