gods & goddesses | Nyx

Nyx, or Nox in Latin translation, is the Greek goddess of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation. Her appearances in mythology are sparse, but reveal her as a figure of exceptional power and beauty. She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses. In Hesiod’s Theogony, Nyx is born of Chaos. With Erebus, Nyx gives birth to Aether (Brightness) and Hemera (Day). Later, on her own, Nyx gives birth to Moros (Doom, Destiny), Ker (Fate, Destruction, Death), Thánatos (Death), Hypnos (Sleep), the Oneiroi (Dreams), Momus (Blame), Oizys (Woe, Pain, Distress), the Hesperides, the Moirai (Fates), the Keres, Nemesis (Indignation, Retribution), Apate (Deceit), Philotes (Friendship, Love), Geras (Old Age), and Eris (Strife).

~An anon asked about Nyx once. I found this.

Yay!

My name is Nikki and I am a victim of sexual assault. I was in an extremely abusive relationship which lead me to have PTSD. I was kept in a cage, tied up, beaten, starved, and raped repeatedly. After a year of abuse I finally got away and was on the road to recovery. A few years after, I was raped and beaten by my brother. The day after it happened my boyfriend (now husband) bought me a bus ticket to move in with him. ( I was in Mississippi and he was in Texas) my family refused to believe me and took my brothers side. They called me names and blamed everything on me saying that I deserved what I got. I have severe panic attacks, PTSD, depression, and social anxiety. I desperately need therapy but I am currently unemployed. Every day I suffer from depression and flashbacks from the horrific events that I have been through. Yes, I’m a survivor but I still live in fear everyday. Please help however you can. Thank you

I’m not sure if people get the cultural significance of this video game.

SSB4 really accomplished something a normal video game can’t do. That’s why its awesome

I want to take someone from the 90’s and show them this just to see their reaction.

And then there’s the “alt” angle.

Villager and Robin there were initially presented as males in Smash, but then announced that you have the option to play female versions too… and that those female versions make up half of the total number of versions of said character. (They did the same with Wii Fit Trainer, only reverse the male/female reveal.)

Villager and Robin are player-avatar characters in their source games… and their Smash iterations carry that forward with the ability to pick their gender, just as you could before, rather than taking the easy way out and defaulting them to “male”.

(Wendy is also an alt of Bowser Jr., though the other six Koopalings take up Jr’s other alt-slots. Which is awesome.)

Ubisoft’s all “we can’t make ONE Assassin in this game female because girls are too haraaaarrrrrd to animaaaaaaaaaaaaaate”.)

Nintendo gives us all those females plus multiple fully-animated characters who can be either.

Ahuh.
