Challenge Description



Did you all know about Voluptas, daughter of Cupid and Psyche. In some of the anchent texts there is mention that they had a daughter and in others that they had twins, a boy (Bliss) and a girl. Voluptas was mentioned specifically and serenity in conjuction with her name. In the picture that I've seen of her, she has butterfly wings:

Well, here's my idea, I can just see Psyche being a bitch and keeping Cupid out of the room while she's giving birth. What if she did have twins, a boy and a girl, but Psyche did something and got rid of their daughter because she wasn't a male and so wasn't in line for the thrown of Olympus? Except that another god, Gaia or someone else saved her and kept her safe from harm, but didn't let anyone know that she was still alive. What would happen when Cupid and Strife find out? Or even Ares and Joxer? What would his daughter be like? Would she have grown up fast so that she'd have full use of her godly powers (like Apollo becoming full grown in three days) and taking care of herself, or would she still be Bliss's age and still needing protection? Would the Goddess of Serentity want to know her father and her step-father?

I'd love to see what you guys come up with.
