Things have settled down, it seems, so I am returning to my slumber on Avalon. Be good to each other, and be measured and thoughtful, not kneejerk and rash.

When has it ever been easy?
Hasn't it always been hard to be us?

What do you want to do?
You're the master of you!
And isn't the thought enough
To lift you off of the ground?

Personally - and I say this as someone with a degree in Classical Language and Literature - I love Disney's "Hercules", and I encourage you to watch it on its merits, not on its deficiencies.

Reminder: if you don't like Disney's "Hercules" because "it doesn't conform to the classical myths", the correct question to ask yourself is:

"Which myths?"

(I tell you this as a Classical Studies scholar: there are so many versions of the Hercules/Heracles story that expecting any adaptation to adhere to a singular version is a fool's errand. Just enjoy the story like the Greeks and Romans did.)

@magicalmilly This is, naturally, why the creator let Disney buy the rights to the Hampster Dance.

@jordyd this is kind of like I feel like Elekk is a small instance but strictly speaking we have, like 2300 users :blobopenmouth:

"Yeah, but that's, like, a hammer. I'm talking about hammers!"
