So what happens after?, August 26, 2023

We all know the myth of Eurydice and Orpheus: man goes to rescue woman, king of the underworld agrees under conditions, rules are broken, everyone is devastated. But, what happens after? And what would have happened if Orpheus hadnít turned back?

This author has an answer: it is so very wrong. No matter your choice, no matter whether you follow the original story or take your own path, it will not be what you expect. Either way is the stuff of nightmares. It is really gross.

And it makes the myth even more tragic than it already is. Those epics transcribed long ago donít really take into account all the nitty and gritty of everyday life, or what would happen if you couldnít die (or if you did).

The use of click-to-reveal the next block increases the anticipation of what is to come. And even as you enter the most disturbing part, you canít really look away. You have to click until you reach the end. You have to know the end.
