I’m so happy to be here again at Larissa’s fabulous blog (thank you for having me)!

I thought I’d do my post today on the gods. Just those two words, ‘the gods’ inspire such power and majesty and intrigue. I can’t even say the words without a dramatic flare. :)

 

In DARKNESS BECOMES HER you’ll discover the world of New 2, which has become a sanctuary for beings descended from gods, made by the gods, cursed by the gods, or enemies of the gods.

After the time of ancient Greece passed, there have been wars—pantheons against pantheons, creatures once loyal, turning on the gods who made them. And now, thousands of years later, there is one goddess who stands above all the others, one who controls the few gods left with an iron fist and who is determined to wipe out the monsters she has created or use them to her advantage.

So what, I asked myself, in the vast time period between ancient Greece and present day, have the gods been doing? Surely not darkness becomes her (1)ignoring mankind. They are known meddlers!

If the Greek gods were real, I believe they would’ve grown with civilization, experienced it, just like we humans have. Back in the day, they took part in culture, music, art, dance, the language. They mingled with man and man’s culture. So why not the culture of subsequent civilizations?

The gods’ personalities, loyalties, and loves would also change—maybe vastly, maybe only slightly. But they would be different than they were, say, three thousand years earlier.

I had this blank canvas, this long time period where there was nothing new written about the gods. So, I had to fill that space – and if I was bringing or even showcasing a god in my near future world, I had to think of how she would be now, not then. I had to bring her through thousands of years of history and into the future, and determine how those years would have shaped her and affected her.

And, let’s not forget, her enemies live in this time period; she’d be an idiot not to understand them, their world, or the weapons they might employ. And we all know this particular goddess is no dummy. She’d make it a point to submerge herself in our culture if only to defeat her enemies.

The goddess in DARKNESS BECOMES HER follows this path of growth, moving along with the rise and fall of civilizations, continuing her interactions with mankind. She’s this wonderful mix of old and new, and there is method and heartbreak behind her madness. So it seems natural to me that she’d partake in the music of this century, the fashion, the technology, and even the slang. I personally think she’d totally dig some Bryan Ferry and a little Godsmack. :) Just like she probably dug some hot ancient Greek musician back in the day…

    I remember a number of years ago the Norse gods, Odin, Thor etc., were very popular in a lot of fantasy books.

    They seem to have fallen into disrepute since then.
