evayna asked: What mythological creature would you most like to see in a fitted suit?
WHAT A GREAT QUESTION! but relatively difficult to answer because a) traditionally, most “mythological creatures” are kinda naked, and b) “fitted suits” are typically meant for humanoids. so we obviously can’t go for a mermaid here, because they have to be able to go in the water and swim, and also they don’t have legs. any kind of layered fabric clothing would be pretty impractical. similarly we have to do away with most mythological creatures with animalistic traits, unless it’s just a human with an animal head, like Horus or a minotaur or something.
i think my answer is going to have to be “none”, partly because i’m not hugely fond of the TV/movie trope of angels, demons etc all showing up wearing suits. this happens a lot and i understand why: it saves having to pay for prosthetics/weird costumes, and wearing a business suit is instant visual shorthand for “authority figure”. all of the angels in Supernatural wear suits, for example. but wearing a suit doesn’t really make sense unless we’re talking about a mythological creature that looks EXACTLY LIKE a human and wants to blend in, which kind of defeats the purpose of your question, i think. a minotaur would have no personal motivation to wear a suit, unless they’re living in a universe where they feel out of place in traditional minotaur clothing/nudity, and have to wear a suit to try (and probably fail) to fit in with the human population.
now the story of a wealthy family who incurred the gods’ wrath, and the one son who had no choice but to complete the cycle of revenge. it’s orestes development
reverse hades/persephone, where the young daughter of summer uses plant magic to ensnare the lord of darkness and keep him prisoner in a beautiful garden above ground. Eventually, enchanted by her cleverness and wild youth he agrees to eat six pomegranate seeds and stay with her for half of every year.
a sphinx girl who’s absolute balls at riddles but fucking loves terrible puns
a traveler is blocked by a sphinx suddenly while going along a path. “what do bees brush their hair with?” she asks, and he’s FREAKING OUT, he’s going to get fucking eaten, didn’t the sphinx DIE, oh god what was the riddle, he knows this one oh shit he knows this one what was it, oh fuck, what the fuck
the sphinx narrows her eyes and bares her teeth a little. oh shit, the traveler thinks, oh shit he’s fucking dead.
the sphinx grins like a goddamn doofus and struggles to hold back laughter as she answers “a honeycomb”
