Calypso

Calypso

Calypso is a Greek Myth -- the daughter of Atlas, a Titan defeated in the war between Kronos and the gods. When he was defeated, Calypso was cursed to spend the rest of eternity on an island. Every once in a while, a hero will wash onto the shores. It's always someone that has to leave, someone who still has battles to be fought. No one ever finds the island twice, and no one can leave unless she falls in love with them. It's an unending cycle of torture for Calypso. Read her tale... Maybe she'll even find love! (This is based off of Rick Riordan's 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians' and 'Heroes of Olympus,' although I took the liberty of changing it up a bit.)

Chapter 1.
Hi. I'm Calypso.

Hi. I'm Calypso.

Hi. I'm Calypso.
Everyone knows me as the daughter of Atlas. That's why I'm stuck here, on this cursed island. I've been here for a millennia -- no, I'm not immortal. The island makes me so. I'm still just a teen girl that desperately wants to stop falling in love and paying the price.
Last person that stopped by was called Percy Jackson. He said that he'd get me out, but that hasn't happened yet. I've gotten wind of Olympus showing respect to all gods and paying more attention to their kids, but I'm forgotten. Alone.
And still cursed.
I spend my time weaving, gardening, reading... There's really not much to do. Invisible servants -- I'm cursed to fall hopelessly in love over and over again for eternity and yet the gods were courteous enough to rob me of work to do -- cook everything, keep everything clean, et cetera.
So. Here I am. This is my story...

Thanks for the offer! If I ever do need help, I'll definitely ask. And yeah. At least, I think. Some people say I am. Sometimes I love my writing, other times I think that it is the worst rubbish ever written. And I will!

Your welcome, if you need help I'd be happy to help well, I never actually read what got you inspired but I do think I could help if needed

are you a good story-writer on your own? I'm pretty bad on my own cause I can only imagine a basis, and after a few minutes of writing I get bored of it...

but still, success with continuing the story ^-^
