did you know dracula was mormon? well…i mean he was a bigamist and had three wives, could’ve been on big love. anyway, his three wives lived in his castle with him and found it amusing to prey on his guests. now you may remember from some dracula posts a few weeks ago, that one of these guests was his lawyer, jonathan harker. while staying with the count, mr. harker got pretty familiar with these horrific vampire brides and they tortured him like crazies. think about it though, if you’re immortal…i bet you really hone your sense of style. hmmm…also, these brides would snap that bella bitch like a twig, LIKE A TWIG.

this is hippolyta, queen of the amazons. in greek mythology, the amazons were a tribe of warrior women who could out battle any gladiator, grecian army or spartan, ya heard? hippolyta was ordained queen by ares, the god of war and ran a tight ship among her tribe. her most famous encounter was with hercules as he’s performing the ninth of his twelve labors. hercules was instructed to retrieve the girdle of hippolyta and she being so intrigued by him decided to give it to him freely. meanwhile, back at the okay corral…hera (queen of the gods) was growing angry with hercules and disguised herself as an amazon to warn the tribe that hercules would kidnap their queen (as theseus had done before). in a panic, they stormed hercules’ ship to attack but feeling betrayed hercules killed hippolyta and narrowly escaped. too bad, hippolyta was way cool.

the lion, the witch and the wardrobe was one of my favorite books when i was a kid. the book (and the rest of the series) take place in narnia, which lucy pevensie found through a wardrobe one day while playing hide and seek. when lucy and her siblings first stumble upon it, narnia is at the mercy of the white witch who keeps it in an endless winter. unfair. for lucy’s part, she (with her sister susan) help aslan revive an army of the white witch’s victims. after the big battle, she heals the fallen soldiers in asland’s army and is eventually crowned lucy the valiant. there’s more to it than that but basically, she’s awesome. more pevensies and narnians headed your way…just saying.

penelope had a pretty tough break in greek mythology. her beloved husband left to fight in troy just after their son telemachus was born. after that was over, odysseus was punished by poseiden to wander the seas. while he was busy trying to find his way home, it was left to penelope to run their kingdom in ithaca. she did a damn good job and managed to fend off suitors and would usurpers. penelope never gave up hope that odysseus would return and trust, when he did…he and penelope kicked some ass. give it up for penelope. she’s awesome.
