"O brightest! though too late for antique vows,
Too, too late for the fond believing lyre,
When holy were the haunted forest boughs,
Holy the air, the water, and the fire;
Yet even in these days so far retired
From happy pieties, thy lucent fans,
Fluttering among the faint Olympians,
I see, and sing, by my own eyes inspired."

John Keats, Ode to Psyche

statue

If you want to talk to Psyche-mun, just post here. Comments are screened.


The earliest surviving version of Psyche's story comes in the Metamorphoses of Lucius Apuleius, written in the second century AD. Philosophy, religion and myth in that century were undergoing a major melting-pot process in that century, with Greco-Roman mythology combining with mysticism from Egypt, Asia Minor, and points east, and the new religion of Christianity was finding its rituals and deep mysteries. The story of Psyche, like much of the literature of the time, probably has its origins in folk traditions begun centuries before; as a story, it falls directly between classical myth and fairy tale. A great many later tales, like "Beauty and the Beast" and "East of the Sun and West of the Moon," have their roots in Psyche and Eros's story, and poets, authors, and artists throughout the centuries have found the subject irresistible.

My version of Psyche is derived primarily from Apuleius (there's a good translation here, with rather nifty Aubrey Beardsley-meets-Arthur Rackham-ish illustrations). Wikipedia also does a decent overview, with some good links. Being a C.S. Lewis fangirl, I was also somewhat influenced by his very wonderful novel Till We Have Faces, but mainly for her backstory I just did a bit of research into civilizations that seemed to me to be about the right period. And then, well, made things up as I went along.

Hey dear!

Loving our thread, omg. It's all sorts of fantastic. I was just wondering what all of this goings on in Psyche's mind stuff would look like from the outside for the Doctor.

Again, this thread is made of so much win. Pain, but win. XD

So am I! Wow. <3! And...that is a very very good question. I didn't mean to be...cutting you out of the action like that. Hm.

Well, I reckon at the very least, the Master's reply of the number and "you always were rubbish," etc, would've come through as said aloud. Beyond that...I figure Psyche's standing where she was, holding her hands out as though offering an embrace; the Master's still glaring at her. Anything the Doctor says she'll let through, as she's letting the Master use his voice as a kind of lifeline back to the "real" world.

And whether the Doctor is picking up anything of what's passing between them now...well, I'll leave that up to you and him and Master-mun. If he wants to push his way in, she might let him (although being told off by two Time Lords at once could be something), or if he wants to wait and give them both a little space she'll be letting the Master free once she thinks she can. Feel free at any juncture to call her a godawful bitch, by the way. ^_^

You guys both rock my socks, by the way. Seriously. *loves you both so damn much*

Whups, double postage! Think we can slide the Doctor's post in there before Psyche lets the Master go?

Maybe if, say, the number came through before they left the mind-space whatever and then the Master could respond when he's back to himself?

Aphrodite at Dizzy, Y/N?

Heads up. (http://community.livejournal.com/dizzy_land/248602.html?thread=14575642#t14575642) To tell you the truth, I'm not sure what Aphrodite really intends here, apart from making a sneaky little power-play. When I posted in the thread, I wasn't sure what she was going to do with Elle, and then she started casting aspersions. Anyway, wanted to let you know what was going on, in the event that you want to go for a payoff on it later. ^_^

*laughs ass off* Psyche of course is indignant and a little sulky (though she wouldn't put it that way herself) but I'm highly amused. Mutual divine slagging-off = fun. And sure, payoff sometime might be cool - I'll keep an eye on that thread.

Hey there, just was wondering if it would be okay for Aziraphale to come by at some point and apologize to Psyche for leaving her to clean up his mess? I think he's going to be rather embarrassed at his own behavior once the dust settles. XD

From: [identity profile] late-born-myth.livejournal.com
Sure, absolutely! I'd love to do that. Er, I should probably comment to kind of wrap that thread, but then whenever you'd like.

Hey Psyche-mun. Don't want to be a pest, but I just thought I'd drop a note and find out whether the game is still on? I know I've been waiting with bated breath to find out what's on the other side of that door. :)

Oh god. I am so damn sorry.

Okay, here we go.
