wolvesdemon2 asked: Are you two an item? *hides behind Ares* I know about Greek gods and personally I think you gods are still around here some where in the western civilization.
Hermes: You really think you’re safe behind Ares? Trust me with this. There’s no human being on this earth I couldn’t find if I wanted to. And if it came to a fight, Ares would probably forget you’re there and things could end up pretty bad. I’m just saying.
Apollo: Really? You had to say that, didn’t you? *glares at Hermes*
Hermes: What did I do now? And yes, I think you could say that we are an item. Maybe? I don’t know. We aren’t really into these formal definitions about our relationship.
Apollo: You got that right. *smiles* And of course we’re still around here! You couldn’t do anything without us. We have helped you since the ancient times! Jeez, why can’t they just believe what’s right in front of their eyes?
Hermes: Mortals aren’t the most observant kind, you know. They miss a lot of important stuff.
Greek Mythology dream cast; Andrew Garfield as Apollo..while Apollon plays his lure stepping high and featly and radiance shines around him, the gleaming of his feet and close-woven vest. And they, even gold-tressed Leto and wise Zeus, rejoice in their great hearts as they watch their dear son playing among the undying gods.
MYTHOLOGY MEME - [9/9] GREEK GODS/GODDESSES: APOLLO
"Phoebos Apollo, radiant and shining archer,
Pythian Apollo, Lord of Delphi and oracles,
Delian Apollo, Lord of the Island of Delos,
Averter of evil, Rescuer, Protector of strangers,
Divine healer, Far-shooter.
Beautiful, terrible god of truth and light.”
→ Caduceus, Staff of Apollo
Whenever Hermes was a child, he stole a herd of sacred cattle from Apollo. Outraged, Apollo tracked Hermes down and demanded his cattle back, and as a sign of forgiveness, Hermes crafted a lyre, which he then gave to Apollo. Apollo and Hermes became friends, and Hermes soon became an Olympian not long after that.
Hermes then crafted reed pipes, and when Apollo saw the pipes, he begged Hermes to give them to him. They struck a deal, Hermes gave him the reed pipes in exchange for the gift of prophecy and Apollo’s golden wand, the Caduceus. Apollo then became the god of music. Hermes got the Caduceus, and it has been a symbol of him ever since.
The Caduceus is a short staff, with two snakes intertwined around it, and topped by wings. It is a symbol of good fortune and prosperity.
Nowadays, a picture of the Caduceus can be seen to symbolize medicine or medical fields.

A golden crown above his shining eyes
His slender staff held out before him
And little wings fluttering at his ankles.”
