.it's a wonderful town.

In December 2010, it began. New York City was the epicenter and gods and mortals of bygone days were drawn there. Shadows of their former selves, not all remembered who they were and none knew that their lives had become playthings for Khaos.

In March 2012, following who knows what manner of tug of war (because it is always, always a game), our gods and goddesses, our nymphs and our angels, our mortals and, yes, even our mythical animals were returned to New York City.

They do say it's the city that never sleeps. It is only natural that the city's puppet-master never sleeps, either.

You can try to break the cycle but whether you're Odin All-Father or Zeus Thunderer, whether you're a Queen of Hell or a Queen of Sparta, you will fail. Settle in, instead, and learn to roll with the punches.


Applications open; 8th (23:59 EST) - 16th (23:59 EST) every month.

Mythopoeics started in Dec. 2010 over at livejournal! For previous events, shenanigans and such please look over at our livejournal communities.

question [09 Jan 2011|09:57pm]

lucre_noin
I was wondering about the relation between Arthurian Legends fan and Merlin BBC fan or... well, both : D
For "being a fan of arthurian legends" I mean: loving arthurian legends, writing about them, reading fanfictions and books about them.

And yes,I'm still looking for arthurian recs. These are the author I read (or know about and want to read): White, Cornwell, Gerald Morris, Jack Whyte, Zimmer Bradley, Bradshaw, Wein, Phyllis Ann Karr, Godwin, David Peter, Joan Wolf, Stewart, Baldry Cherith, C. Fisher, Sutcliff, Nancy McKenzie, Peter Hanratty, Steinbeck, Twain, Tennyson, Douglas Clegg, Sarah Zettel, Thomas Berger, Catherine Christian, Lowder, Cochran Molly, McDowell.
Do you know other good arthurian author/book?
And I heard about the novel "The Pendragon" (Christian Catherine) and "Arthur Rex" (Berger Thomas)... I was wondering how are these books because I read wonderful reviews on amazon.
The last question: How is the character of Mordred in the Squire's series of Gerald Morris?

.old gods never die. they simply get recycled.
You all know their myths, when they were influential and absolute, but what comes around goes around - karma came knocking at their doors and these Gods died. Subjected to a higher power, they have lived again, and again - only shadows of their former selves. God shells with only a fraction of their original power. They bleed and die like mortals, but are not quite that.

Christian, Arthurian, Celtic, Greek and Norse deities reborn as mortals and living in 2010, some remember their past, some do not but in this day and age knowledge is power. Welcome to NYC, cosmopolitan capital of the world, here they are gathering - gods, monsters, heroes- they all feel the calling of something but no one is quite sure of what.

The Raven King [28 Mar 2010|09:46am]

[ mood | blank ]

I was doing research for an Arthurian Literature class, when I stumbled upon an old legend that I hadn't heard before. King Arthur is known as the once and future king, who mysteriously disappeared into Avalon but will be returning. But in this particular legend, he is not just chilling in Avalon, nor is he asleep in a cave - he's actually turned into a raven, and in that form is haunting the land.

This story started writing itself as soon as I read it.

Effect of Arthurian legend on sense of English/Welsh national identity? [17 Jun 2009|07:57pm]

isil_helyanwe
Hi, this is my first time posting in this comm, and I haven't been a member all that long, so if I'm breaking any rules, please tell me and I'll be glad to delete this. :)

I'm writing a 5000 word essay for school and I want to explore either:

a) the effect which Arthurian mythology had on the sense of national identity, both in the medieval era and beyond or

b) how Arthurian mythology affected concepts of kingship (perhaps mainly focusing on the period of the Wars of the Roses).

Of course, the first is a far broader topic, and by 'Arthurian mythology', I would really be cheifly focusing on Malory's Le Morte d'Arthur more than anything else.

This is kind of a large thing to ask, but I'm really stuck at where to begin, so I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what I could research, where I could find good information or how to tackle this - frankly rather daunting - question. Or really anything that you think could help.

Thanks so much.

Hi - Looking for suggestions [14 Jun 2009|11:05pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Hi everyone. First of all, I apologize for my bad english.
I just joined this community because you all seem quite expert about the Arthurian legend. I was never a fan because all the movies I ever stumbled in were about the betrayal of Guinevere with Lancelot, with mostly an old Arthur, and I found that quite unnerving. I ended up watching Merlin (not by choce) and was very surprised about some of the characters, so I made a few research to find out more.
I still hate passionatly Guinevere, but I totally fell for Arthur - he is so loyal and devoted and strong that I can't help it - and Morgana/Morgaine/Morgan (whatever her name is, in whatever version, I think I'll always love her). Probably because in the first version I saw them in (Merlin) they are not related, or probably just because they are amazing, but the point is that I love this pairing greatly.
I've read The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, and The Road to Avalon by Joan Wolf (which I found refreshing) and I'm looking for other books that explore their relationship in a romantic way. I really hope you can help me.

Arthurian Stories Online [30 Mar 2009|06:54am]

markadderley
I wanted to let you all know that I've posted some pre-Arthurian stories to my website: www.markadderley.net/webisodes.  They're backstory to my novel, "The Hawk and the Wolf," but they can be enjoyed independently.

Thanks!

Mark.

I never knew Roger Zelazny's Last Defender of Camelot had been made into an 80s Twilight Zone episode, but I saw on a mailing list that it's airing on the Chiller cable network at 5 am EST Tuesday morning.
