I don’t have a Yule-flavored sticky today, because I don’t have a Yule-flavored sticky at all, so I thought I would post some more of Apollo’s stickies. Plus, Apollo is associated with Mithras, who was the original god born on the Winter Solstice, so I have found a way to tie it all together in the end. Happy Birthday Mithras!
But that really has nothing to do with today’s sticky. Everyone knows Zeus is a womanizer, so in Apollo and Daphne, Poe and his sister aren’t the only bastard children of Zeus, just the first. And although I can’t have my main character and his sister go and kill a dozen kids with no repercussions, I can have them pick on them and call them names. Which they do. Not very friendly, but Apollo and Artemis were never known as the most friendly of the Olympian Gods.
And if you really want a Yule-flavored sticky, see Sticky #27. This scene takes place on Yule, and the death of Aleda eventually gets turned into Legend, as Fie Eoin’s version of Yule.
