Does a T-shaped intersection where a road turns left to go one way (up a hill) and right for the other (down) still count as a trivium? Alternatively - that whole "Dionysos as Haides" thing. Your thoughts?

This question and my subsequent answer confused Crown for a hot second. It lead to “But you can only go one way on a one way road?” lol. We agree “yes in theory, but maybe not in practice” as the geometry is rihht, but if any of the roads are one way it cuts off your ability to travel back the way you came (which in certain rites is ju st as important as traveling back a different route, obv. for different reasons). So, are any of the roads one way? If they all were, I’d say yes, if none were, I’d say yes, if one road that forked evenly was, maybe, if one tine or prong was, maaaybeee not. But that depends on if such specifics matter to you (or the things or Brings you would meet out there/leave out there).

Okie dokie, as per the syncretism thing: I am totally fine with the synchronization of many of the theoi, especially when some of the things They have in common are so all encompassing like Being Kthonic, and having to do with underground-ness, wealth of the earth in vegetable and mineral form, and death and the souls of the dead. Those things are HUGE. Syncretize away! And should you not want to, and give the individual theos Their propers, that’s fine too. After all, Big D has his own particular host of dead (the Dionysian dead as wandering bacchic , horde, or as celebratory guests of His eternal feasts, or…)but UZ (Underground Zeus) has dominion over all the departed, and appoints them to their apropriate eternities. Big differences, so, I guess, no real opinion, ju st an understanding of both sides.

Spending some time tonight chilling low key with @thiscrookedcrown so, hit us up! Send questions for me (or the two of us) to me. Anon is on, be our tertiary distraction!

I’m always soft for you, that’s the problem. You could come knocking on my door five years from now and I would open my arms wider and say ‘come here, it’s been too long, it felt like home with you.’
