A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 23: Fantasy Squad – Trolls

When I was little I used to believe trolls lived under bridges. Clearly that stemmed from one of my favourite stories – The Three Billy Goats Gruff. I liked to think of the billy goats as siblings; the younger two relying on their big brother for protection. I enjoyed the way the tables were turned and whenContinue reading “A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 23: Fantasy Squad – Trolls”

A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 22: Fantasy Squad – Sirens

I’ve talked about my father’s love of Greek mythology before, (Melissa was the name of a nymph who nursed an infant Zeus), and my interest in sirens probably stems from his own fascination (I’m lucky he wasn’t a sailor!). Sirens are often confused with harpies because they are both hybrids; combining women and birds. I’mContinue reading “A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 22: Fantasy Squad – Sirens”

A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 21: Fantasy Squad – Reaper

I’m not sure if that’s cheating, but I’ll probably get off on a technicality! This post is about the Grim Reaper, also known as Death or the Angel of Death. “You might be a king or a little street sweeper, but sooner or later you dance with the reaper” (Quote taken from Bill and Ted’sContinue reading “A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 21: Fantasy Squad – Reaper”

A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 20: Fantasy Squad – Questing Beast

Today I’ll be considering the virtues of the Questing Beast for my fantasy squad; a creature from Arthurian legend. It has been referred to by other names, including the Barking beast; an intriguing monster and the subject of many a quest! Depictions of the Questing Beast are conflicted, but my favourite is probably the versionContinue reading “A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 20: Fantasy Squad – Questing Beast”

A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 18: Fantasy Squad – Pegasus

No squad is complete without Pegasus, at least in my opinion. I have always loved the flying horse; a particular favourite within Greek mythology. You probably don’t need to know that I collected as many pictures, trinkets, and stories as I could growing up. I dreamt Pegasus came to whisk me away to places unknownContinue reading “A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 18: Fantasy Squad – Pegasus”

A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 17: Fantasy Squad – Ogres

I can’t help it, when I think of ogres, I think of Shrek, and I have DreamWorks to thank for that, or at least the writers! So I’m going to move away from the movie, otherwise this post will turn into something else entirely! Ogres are often confused with trolls and giants. They certainly overlapContinue reading “A to Z Blogging Challenge – Day 17: Fantasy Squad – Ogres”
