Fan of Supernatural? How about Greek Mythology? The two will collide this week when our favorite demon hunters mistake a Titan for a zombie. You heard me right – a Titan! Prometheus will find himself on prime time television with the Winchester boys.
I’ve enjoyed Supernatural for its inception and I don’t think it’s any secret how I feel when it comes to things that fall in the realm of an Immortal Monday topic. This one‒Greek gods‒couldn’t be more perfect.
In addition to Prometheus, Artemis and Zeus will have a go with Sam and Dean. Hmm. I would not mind playing the part of Artemis. Having a chance to get that up close and personal with Dean Winchester-where do I sign up?
And our Greek gods are…
Prometheus was credited with the creation of man. Thought of as a trickster, he is held accountable for the theft of fire, giving it to mortals making him their champion. Zeus punishes for his crimes by sentencing him to eternal torment. He is bound to a rock and every day an eagle (the embodiment of Zeus) feed from his liver, only to have his liver grow back so that he may experience it all over again.
Artemis, daughter of Zeus and Leto, was the goddess of the hunt, wild animals, and wilderness to name a few. She was often depicted carrying a bow and arrows and so it is fitting she is adopted for this episode hunting Prometheus. Could it be he was freed from his bond and she looks to return him?
*Artemis’ history is a tricky one and scholars have varied theories. Some believe she was the daughter of Demeter, some think her origins pre-date Greek mythology all together. For the purpose of the Supernatural episode, we are choosing the most likely and most popular option.
Zeus was the Father of gods and men, ruler of the Olympians at Mount Olympus and commander of the sky and thunder. For more on Zeus check out Immortal Monday’s dedicated post: A Father of Fathers.
In other news…THOR!!! “Where has he been, “you ask? I have the answer. Have you heard of a little thing called Mardi Gras? Oh my gosh! Who would have thought the trouble he could find when I sent him on his merry way. Go check out his latest with my amazing web designer, (coming soon! I promise!) Laird Sapir:

My book just dropped in my in-box full of edits. I will be extremely busy for who-knows-how-long. It’s doubtful there will be a Friday Fictioneers on this blog this week. Sorry. It’s a busy time. But here’s a little something you may be interested to know, I have a file that has been growing at a fair rate, full of Immortal Monday posts. Yep, I plan on bringing back the popular series when things slow down a bit. Keep watching. Immortal Monday will be back!
Thanks for stopping by! I truly appreciate your support. Until next time, au revoir.
