↳ orpheus & eurydice

Eurydice was a nymph and the bride of Orpheus, a legendary musician and poet. On their wedding day, she got bit by a viper and died from the poison. The despairing Orpheus played such sad songs on his lyre that even the gods wept and told him to go to the Underworld to bring her back. Orpheus did so and finally played in front of Hades and Persephone, whose cold hearts were thawed by his song. They allowed for Eurydice’s return on one condition: Orpheus must walk in front of her and not look back until they’re out of the Underworld. Along the way, Orpheus began to suspect that he’d been deceived, that Eurydice was not there with him at all. Just as soon as he reached daylight, he looked back, and she disappeared back into the Underworld. However, when Orpheus was later killed by the Maenads, his soul was reunited with hers in the Underworld.

I wanted to tell them that I’d never had a friend, not ever, not a real one. Until Dante. I wanted to tell them that I never knew that people like Dante existed in the world, people who looked at the stars, and knew the mysteries of water, and knew enough to know that birds belonged to the heavens and weren’t meant to be shot down from their graceful flights by mean and stupid boys. I wanted to tell them that he had changed my life and that I would never be the same, not ever. And that somehow it felt like it was Dante who had saved my life and not the other way around. I wanted to tell them that he was the first human being aside from my mother who had ever made me want to talk about the things that scared me. I wanted to tell them so many things and yet I didn’t have the words. So I just stupidly repeated myself. “Dante’s my friend.”

Robin was an incredibly funny man who unfortunately left us today. I honestly am person who thinks that the best way to appreciate someone who contributed so much to the world is to appreciate what they brought into it. So, I thought I would help you by providing some links. I really hope he has found some peace.
I couldn’t find The Crazy Ones or season 3 and 4 of Mork & Mindy, I apologize, huns.

fig.1- old bottles of Amortentia, marketed in the late 19th-early 20th century. Note that the trademark mother-of-pearl sheen of the potion has dulled, leaving a sickly brown residue behind.

AMORTENTIA: Known as the most powerful love potion in existence, Amortentia does not, in fact, cause the drinker to fall in love. Rather, the potions causes an extremely powerful infatuation and obsession. A potion that has induced true, unadulterated love has never been discovered, and it is widely accepted that no potion or spell will ever be able to replicate this.

Amortentia gives off a different aroma to everyone who smells it, replicating the smells of which said person finds most attractive. For example, if one is fond of the smell of Pumpkin Pasties, lavender or old books, Amortentia would certainly smell like those things to them. The effects of Amortentia are nearly instantaneous and the person affected will become immediately obsessed and infatuated with the “object of their affections”. Those who are given the Amortentia potion often appear pale and sickly, and the potion must be administered frequently in order to keep up the illusion of false love. The effects of Amortentia have been compared (in the loosest of ways) to those of the Imperius Curse, in the sense that the victim has no free will and it at the total mercy of the witch or wizard who has administered it– that is, at least until the potion wears off.

It has been advised by the Ministry of Magic that no witch or wizard shall administer the Amortentia potion to another, for it is a form of cruel and unusual punishment and the facade of love will never really truly fulfil one’s real desires.
