The Musings of a Desolate Demigod by Louise Findlay

We have a special treat from Louise this week for all you mythology lovers! She created a short piece in response to the sentence starter.

The Musings of a Desolate Demigod

Our mothers and fathers had ravenged the world, leaving almost nothing left in their eternal wars. The devastation they had wrought rivalled that of the creatures and gods they were fighting. I was related to a murderer of the highest degree. I swear I would kill him if I ever saw him again.

My kind were in decline. Most fell in the Parallax War. There were demigods on both sides. Some sided with their godly parents and some defected to the opposing side. The war was originally over the fate of Olympus and the mortals but it just turned demigod against demigod and god against god. The sides were clear cut in the beginning with good against evil but the lines blurred. To read the full story, click here to be redirected.

Thanks for your contribution, Louise.

  1. I had to write this after that fitting sentance starter. Loving writing The Dusty Wastelands of Tartarus. It is a very different kind of story that I’m used to with mythology and hints of dystopia.
