Hoo boy….

Published January 18, 2015 by Iphis of Scyros

Why did it have to be today?  Blogging 101 wants us to respond to a Daily Prompt.  Okay, fine and dandy, but today’s Daily Prompt (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/pleased-to-meet-you/) is about the leads of two different books/movies meeting for the first time.

I’m a reformed fanfic writer.

I’ve written that.

A lot.

I’m not diving back into that pit.  If I do, I might not be able to leap back out again.

Of course, my Greek myth-based writing could still be considered “fanfic” of a sort, since I’m working with pre-established characters, to a certain extent.  Hmm…so have I written any scenes in the Greek myth-based stuff that would be the first meeting of the heroes of different works?

Technically, I kind of have.  Achilles is the lead of the Iliad, Odysseus is the lead of the Odyssey, and I’ve twice written about their first meeting.  But since both characters are also in the other epic (and an assortment of other ancient works) I don’t think that really counts.  Especially since in both cases I was following a pre-established tale regarding their first meeting.  (The same tale, in fact…)

Let’s see…any others?  Hmm…Orestes is the lead of a number of surviving tragedies, and he shows up in book six of my quasi-young adult novels, but…he doesn’t meet any other protagonists other than those he meets anyway.  Helen is the lead of at least one surviving play (can’t really call it a tragedy) by Euripides, but the only other protagonists she meets are Orestes and Odysseus, so…yeah, that’s no good.  Well, technically, Eurysakes may have been a protagonist (Sophocles is said to have written a play named after him) but the play is lost, and even its contents are uncertain, and my Eurysakes is definitely unlike the traditional one.  (And I am shamed to admit that I like mine better.)

So…yeah, not going to write a tale of first meetings.  But I will admit that I like cross-movie/same-casting confusion.

So ever since I saw The Hobbit:  The Battle of Five Armies, I’ve wanted to see the Doctor riding a giant eagle into battle.  With Ace behind him, ready to toss canisters of Nitro 9 at the enemy.  I bet Ace would love that.
