The Evermore Grimoire: Mythology
Hades (Ἁιδης meaning ‘The Unseen’) was king of the underworld and god of the dead in Greek mythology. He presided over funeral rites and defended the right of the dead to due burial. Hades was also the god of the hidden wealth of the earth, from the fertile soil which nourished the seed-grain, to the mined wealth of gold, silver and other metals. As soon as he was born though he was devoured by Kronos (king of the titans) along with his siblings. However Zeus (king of the gods) later caused the Titan to disgorge them, and together they drove the Titan Gods from heaven and locked them away in the pit of Tartarus. When the three victorious brothers then drew lots for the division of the cosmos, Hades received the third portion, the dark dismal realm of the underworld, as his domain.

Contrary to what your beloved poets say, unrequited love doesn’t last forever. And being treated badly by someone doesn’t make you love them more.

BILBO and FRODO BAGGINS
✧ He had no close friends, until some of his younger cousins began to grow up. The eldest of these, and Bilbo’s favourite, was young Frodo Baggins... Bilbo and Frodo happened to have the same birthday, September 22nd. ‘You had better come and live here, Frodo my lad,’ said Bilbo one day; ‘and then we can celebrate our birthday-parties comfortably together.’
✧ He lived alone, as Bilbo had done; but he had a good many friends, especially among the younger hobbits... Frodo went tramping over the Shire with them; but more often he wandered by himself... Merry and Pippin suspected that he visited the Elves at times, as Bilbo had done.
✧ As he was speaking a great desire to follow Bilbo flamed up in his heart – to follow Bilbo, and even perhaps to find him again. It was so strong that it overcame his fear: he could almost have run out there and then down the road without his hat, as Bilbo had done on a similar morning long ago.
✧ ‘You were very fond of Bilbo were you not?’ he asked. ‘Yes,’ answered Frodo. ‘I would rather see him than all the towers and palaces in the world.’
