Maybe Mythology?

I’ve started to write a short story.

One for the short story workshop in my creative writing club.

I had a strange idea that might just work

It’s combining Greek and Roman mythology.

What if Pluto was Hades’ apprentice?

In this case, both Pluto and Hades would have to look similar, and it would take many years for Pluto to learn the ways of the Underworld.

This way, more people in Rome would recognize him as Pluto, while people in Greece would still consider him to be Hades.

If you’d like to know more about the story, just tell me and I might just post an excerpt.

If you’re writing a short story, I would love to hear all about it!

  1. So I wonder, do you know every difference between the Greek and Roman Underworld god? There are many similarities, but there are also some differences, some significant I’d like to assume, that are there 🙂 Other than that, I REALLY like this idea (and you can make Persephone meet Prosperina!) xD

    • For instance their personalities greatly contrast. Oh this will be so good! xD

      • Yes, I will create the best characters I can for both Hades and Pluto, infusing both Roman and Greek mythology. Hades was more of a ruthless sociopath whereas Pluto was more of a recluse, staying in the Underworld. Since Roman mythology was derived from Greek, most elements are similar. The Underworld Rivers are similarly named, and Pluto will be able to rename whatever he can. As Pluto learns more about being a god, the more immortal he gets. Likewise, the more mortal Hades gets. So, when Pluto is ready to lead, Hades will die.
