drowning royed

[sticky post] Welcome! {Friends Only}


Hello! My name is Mere and I go by the penname of meredavey on most sites. I'm currently twenty-one years old and am a rising senior at the College of Charleston in the major of History and Classics. What do I do in my spare time you ask? Well, I write and I read. I enjoy both of those things immensely, I also tend to addict myself to TV shows on a routine basis. I go through fandoms like dirty laundry - except for one or two. I'm an avid cook so I'm always experimenting with new recipes. I also love to talk with people, I am a people person!

Not Friends Only?
I was friends only for a while due to several circumstances. Those circumstances are over, and so is my friends only stance. You can look around if you want, but this journal isn't going to be updated frequently unless I get back into LJ. If you want fic I'd check out my AO3 and tumblr. My tumblr usually posts previews of up-coming fic and other goodies. So follow there if you'd like more!

In Reference to other sites:
I am on several other sites as well:
AO3
and
Tumblr
(pretty much only Fullmetal Alchemist and other various things I find interesting)

"Elysia" Hughes

I'm writing a story with a girl who is half Greek and half American in origin. And I was looking up names.

Elysia popped up and I supposed I never thought of it. Most of you have probably heard of the Fields of Elysia (or Elysium/Elysiam).

Yeah, think about the meaning of that. In the Fiels of Elysium the righteous, the heroes, the martyrs live in the Underworld.

Think about that

Arakawa claims she picked first names out at random, but how strange would it be that Hughes's daughter would end up with the name Elysia?

Was it unintentional foreshadowing, it is said Elysia ruled over Elysiam. Who ruled Hughes? Elysia, she was his world. Kind of scary, you know?

Maybe Hughes isn't a conventional hero, but he did give up his life for the Elrics, making him "righteous".

I just thought that you FMA fans might find this interesting. Tell me, what do you think, intentional? Unintentional? Is there really a deeper meaning?

Now take Gracia, derived from the Latin "Grace" from the "Three Graces". Thalia (happiness/good cheer), Aglaea (splendor) and Euphrosyne (mirth). They were also associated with the underworld. (namely Persephone)

And Hughes was always talking about Gracia in similar terms.

I don't know if I'm reading too much into this, but, when you look at it overall, it seems like there HUGE hints of what's going to happen. Everything good, goes bad.

Interesting, huh?
