Myths and legends. There's something about them that continues to fascinate and enthrall us, even when we have no particular cultural connection to them. If I actually spent any time planning these blogs before I sat down to write them, I'd probably have done research for this particular one. Is it something about the narratives of these myths that continues to resonate with us? Or is it the all-too-familiar flaws of the supposedly-superior beings that are in them? Do they play on fears, hopes, dreams? All of these? None of them? Am I rambling?
While I can't definitively answer most of the above, I can give a pretty solid "yes" to the last question. :P
So, rather than reading any more of that, why don't we get on with it and look at all the wonderful ponies you all have drawn for us this week?
