the world is incredible. there are girls in this world, and there are also dogs. you can put melted cheese on any type of potato. sometimes flowers grow even when nobody is there to water them. right now on this same planet where we live there are people who are in love with each other kissing each other on the nose. emotions and colours are both things that exist. everything is so great

mythology meme | Greek pantheon and paganism - Empusa
(x) Empusa was the beautiful daughter of the goddess Hecate and the spirit Mormo. She feasted on blood by seducing young men as they slept before drinking their blood and eating their flesh. Empusa is pictured as wearing brazen slippers and bearing flaming hair.
She was a demigoddess. In later Greek mythology, her role was reduced to a species of spectre called an empuse or empusa (pl. empusae). The empusae were sent by Hecate to guard crossroads and devour travelers. Hecate was also the goddess of roadsides.
The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.
These are some fun fucking facts

mythology meme | Slovene pantheon and paganism - Kresnik
(x) Kresnik is god of summer sun and fire, who made possible a plentiful harvest of hay, wheat and fruit. His visible symbol is the bonfire, “kres” in Slovenian (derived from “iskra”, meaning “spark”) The origins of all these names however is ultimately fire, which symbolizes the sun. Kresnik was worshipped with the lighting of bonfires - which has been retained in folk tradition to this day. Kresnik tradition has given rise to a rich folklore of myths and tales, which appear to belong and older and a younger cycle.
In the older cycle Kresnik appears as son of a sky deity. Kresnik is a god with golden hair and golden hands and lives on a golden, sometimes crystal, mountain (axis mundi), somewhere in the morning land, in the east where he has his castle. Opposite his castle is a garden, in it is an apple tree, which has golden apples, the fruit of immortality. Whoever is so fortunate that he reaches the mountain and picks the golden apple, never dies. Golden apples are a symbol of love, fruitfulness and life while Kresnik’s garden is a metaphor for paradise.
