Wait what? You mean they were teaming up against Aidoneus all along? Wait. To protect the child...that was Zeus and Demeter's... give up your love...for Hades (I'd guess).


So let me get this straight... To protect the child from being an earth goddess (how bad could that be?), which was from Zeus, she chose to give up Hades...and returned to Gaia essentially dying? (Was being an earth goddess THAT bad??)

I think I need to lie down...

In my opinion, I guess that the purpouse of Zeus and Demeter should interpretate as "a possibility". As almost always the omake shows alternative reallities outside of original story, it´s too probably that Demeter's sacrfice only works to "explains" what do she want for Persephone in her current situation.

What do you thing about that?

I still don't get what Demeter giving up Hades has to do with Persephone being an earth goddess. Isn't being an earth goddess one of those things you just become?

I think "Being an Earth Goddess" was used to describe the curse(Or whatever it is.) Of never being able to bear children without dying and passing the curse to them? If you died after making love, that would kind of suck, Goddess or no.

I don't really get the process of how giving up her love can protect her child from being an earth goddess. Is this love Hades? If so then what does that make Zeus? Isn't Persephone already a earth goddess? If she has a child with Hades, what happens then? This is all too confusing...

I THOUGHT ZEUS HAD RAPED HER ALL ALONG WHEN REALLY demeter just wanted to break the cycle of the earth goddess curse. ;___;

that's why she went to zeus because if she ended up with hades, she couldn't have had a child with him without her dying and the child receiving the curse. now i kind of feel bad for hating on zeus in myseasons. :c

she gave up Hades' love in order to give Persephone a chance to have children. That's it.

Reply Cantstopcrazy, September 23rd, 2013, 4:59 pm

so Demeter is apologizing for using Zeus and making things even more troubled with Hades, since it seems she planned to give Hades her child from the beginning and so the two of them could be free to be with each other in every way?

So Zeus being Persephone's father wouldn't make her an earth goddess as opposed to having Hades as a father?

Did I miss something...

And how does Zeus raping Demeter break the cycle?

Overthinking I think everyone is overthinking things. By the way that Demeter is holding her stomach/abdomen, she must already be pregnant with Persephone. The arm reaching out to her looks like Gaia's. It seems more like she gave up the physical ability to love (possibly specifically her feelings for Hades)In order to give her daughter the physical ability to make love without consequence of the curse. Persephone's still an Earth Goddess since Demeter doesn't say anything about her daughter NOT being one (she's the bringer of spring, that's pretty Earth Goddessy).
It's simply that her mom gave her the ability to have children, protecting her from the "curse" with her love she gave up. Inevitably protecting her from the fate that befalls all Earth goddesses that bring life in a means other than through natural earthly life.

i bet zelda is laughing diabolically at our guesses but i will have my shot.
that means spoilers. SPOILERS
so zeus was doing this out of revenge to make hades feel the same way he felt before. So Demeter now, to assure her daughter's bright future as mommy gave up her heart (not just powers because i's already a lawthat when an earth goddess gives birth se gives up her powers, demeter, to prevent her from that gives up her love) i am agreed with the person above this comment because DEMETER protected Persephone by giving up the most precious thing she has in order to assure her daughter's bright future.

I agree with the two people above me.

I think that what he's saying is that in order to protect Persephone from the fate of an earth goddess, she had to be Zeus's daughter, because Demeter told Persephone that she can safely have a child because she has a father who loves her, and she's good as long as he rules. If Hades had been Persephone's father, she would have the same problem as Demeter, since Hades isn't king of the world. So, Demeter chose to give up on being happy with Hades and had Persephone with Zeus, so that her daughter would be able to find happiness and have kids and stuff with the one she loves.

That makes a bit more sense and all... but what does being king of the world have to do with the magic that is given up at the birth of a child by an earth goddess? A process that's supposed to occur no matter what? Unless this is different in MYth, even Gods cannot fight against Fate.

Reply Sidus, October 2nd, 2013, 11:29 am

It is an explanation very coherent to understand "what happened Demeter", T. However, there one thing that worries me about it:

If Demeter dissapeared to protect Persephone of inevitable fate that has a Goddess of Earth, and she also sacrificed herself for her daughet would have kids with Hades, it don´t implies that other Deity linked with any element of nature that dying and rising like Demeter "would" also return Gaia someday if she o he has Divine or Demigod Offspring in this reallity alternative?

But... who said Persephone knew she was having a girl?

Plus, the rape scene was written to look like rape- not consensual sex. I don't think Persephone went to Zeus for that purpose, but I can see her being the type to forgive him afterwards.

As for the 'giving up love', that can be interpreted in a variety of ways, too.
