but seriously those i’m sick and tired of those masterposts that are like “here! A reference site on Greek mythology for all your needs! Look it has all fifteen Greek gods on it!” And I’m like. tHERE WERE LIKE HUNDREDS OF FIGURES IN MYTHOLOGY YOUR CRAPPY HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL BIBLIOGRAPHY SITE MEANS NOTHING TO ME
if you want a basic outline of Greek mythology okay sure fine??? but like. if you want an extensive fucking reference site you are looking in the wrong goddamn places
as a self-declared greek mythology snob my reference site is fucking always this fucker right here. almost every single figure ever mentioned in a Greek text is on it, it has the most obscure gods, spirits, nymphs— it’s GREAT. You really wanna extend your mythological knowledge past the basic 12 and like four others? USE THEOI. plus plus PLUS everything is cited so you can actually read the source material written about whoever it is you’re looking at.
fucking signal boost this. i’m so sick and tired of writer’s helpers blogs referring people to sites with as much information you would get from opening a third grade mythology book jesus chriiiiiist
thank you for this post
guys, would you please do me a favor and reblog this if you use screencaps from screencapped.net? they are a wonderful site that is essentially screencap heaven, but they’ve been receiving a lot of hate and rude comments as of lately which resulted in the site being put on a hiatus. this is in no way to push them to change that, but this is simply to show them that people do love and appreciate that site very much. i am an avid user of it myself and i would hate to see it go. it only takes a minute to reblog and they really seem to need the reminder of how much they are loved. bonus points if you actually message hq-screencaps, because a few kind words can go a long way. even if they don’t come back, they deserve to know how helpful they were to anyone who used the site :)
