I do believe a tenth muse may have been born. She certainly has a presence in writing. Her name's Mary Sue, and I'm not positive what she's the muse of, but she has plenty of followers. Something must be done.

current mood: irritated

11:29 am - A conversation I had a little earlier with one of my daughters
Me: Dear, I have a small favour to ask of you
Siren: Yes mother?
Me: You know where Dionysus keeps his wine supplies, don't you?
Siren: Mother, it's common knowledge
Me: Well, how about we give him a little surprise. Find a cask he's likely to drink out of soon, and turn it sour. He needs to learn to take better care of his possessions
Siren: *giggle* Yes, mother

Ever so bored. I thought this drought would be a litle more...dramatic, somehow. Instead, the heat and thirst is making everyone far too apathetic to do anything, much less anything tragic enough to write about. Poseidon dear, I think a flood's in order.

3:32 pm - Bunny Crusade argument #2
There's a Cornish legend which says that girls who die of grief after being rejected by a lover turn into white hares and haunt their former beaus. Now, you can't possibly tell me that doesn't befit a muse of tragedy.

((OOC: Of course, finding that little snippet has also implanted some rather disturbing ideas about Marius turning into a writer once Eponine's ghost, in plot-bunny form, starts haunting him...))

Further proof that my having a rabbit as a symbol is a perfectly reasonable idea

Now will you all believe me? Look at the turmoil they can cause!

I returned from a nice little inspiration-spree down in the mortal realms, and when I returned, who did I find but by dear sister Polyhymnia! Greetings, my dear. It's so lovely to have you around. And I hear father shall be joining us soon as well.

Really, I swear my dear sister Thalia is a bad influence. Remind me never to listen to anything a muse of comedy says if I want to do my job properly. She convinced me to see one of her works last night, and I've been sickeningly cheerful ever since. I really need a dying soldier to play around with...

1:44 pm - Brothers can be such a bore
Look at this. Only a battle-crazed air-head would even dream of getting on the wrong side of so many goddesses at once.

And the best bit of it all? He claims he has wisdom. Ha!

current mood: amused

I open my eyes to survey my surroundings.

I see a girl sigh over her unseeing lover. I decide she shall write a verse in sorrow. This shall be the work of her tears and blood.

(OOC: It's really just an excuse to test everything)
