    And yet, her Otherworldliness cannot be dismissed. Rhiannon is a strong leader who rule with the skill of a síd, actively improving both Pwyll’s land and his leadership, working against the more traditional passive role of sovereignty goddesses. Before any of this can be established however, it is essential to look at how Rhiannon’s divinity is created and shaped by remnants of Pre-Christian deities. Rhiannon’s divine origins are far from superficial. From her first introduction in the First Branch of the Mabinogi, Rhiannon is heavily associated with supernatural and godlike qualities. She appears riding a horse outpacing Pwyll’s men easily and without tire. This image of her relates neatly to that of the Gaulish horse goddess Epona, who is frequently depicted riding sidesaddle on a horse. In fact, Rhiannon…

But then, before I knew it I launched into a long lecture about how him and the farm owner should take better care of the horses, and how bad horse abuse is. “Woah, Woah, hold on a second, first of all, I don’t know you. Second of all,who are you to tell me what I can and can’t do,” He interrupted quickly. “Now, get off my property”. Downcast,…

    and she gave birth to a god named Cernunnos. The myth states that her pain during labor was so bad that she tore a piece of bark off the tree and threw it into the sea. The bark was then transformed by the sea into the “Giants of the Deep”. Later on, the god Cernunnos became lonely and soon discovered the Giants of the Deep (of which there were quite a few) so he coupled with Eiocha resulting in some more gods.

    She has a very similar role to that of Gaea in the Greek creation myth in the way that they both are sort of the root of all creation in the world. Like Gaea, she gives birth to a son named Cernunnos, whom is paralleled to Uranus. Similar to how Gaea and Uranus come together to create the titans, Eiocha and Cernunnos go on to create more gods like Maponos, Tauranis, Teutates, and Epona. Without the creation of Eiocha, there would have been no gods to create the rest of the world. Her actions in…

    garage sale with my mother. While there, we discovered the strangest thing that I had ever seen: a Nintendo 64. I didn’t know it back then, but that game system has played a major role in my identity. My mother bought the system and the games that came with it. We took it home, hooked it up, and I dug through the box of games. One of the games looked particularly appealing. The cartridge was grey with a golden sticker reflecting the dim light.

    to get that title that is anything but lazy. Link is also trusted with many other favors from different people. He never chooses to turn down a request from a friend making him a reliable person. Continuing the letters, the next one would be E from the OCEAN theory. E stands for how extroverted someone is. I believe that Link would score really low in this section.
