(Titan) METIS

Greek Goddess of : Good Counsel, Advice, Planning, Cunning and Wisdom
Attributes :
Festival Days :
When in Rome :

Titan daughter of Oceanos and Tethys, the Greek goddess of good counsel, advice, planning, cunning and wisdom.

"Zeus, put your pecker away and listen up! If you have sex with Metis she willl get pregnant, if her first born is a daughter she will then have a son, the son will be even greater than you and take over the heavens. It's all true because I said so. Savvy?"

Having heeded Hera's warning for ooh, five seconds, Zeus set his sights on Metis anyway. It didn't matter that she had given him sound council during the clash of the Titans, or that she devised the cunning regurgitation plot so Zeus had some brothers in arms as he went to war in the first place, and although she took on many forms to escape the sleazy gods grasp he wasn't going to take no for an answer. No matter how many times she said it.

Having sown his divine oats something resembling normality returned to his brain along with Hera's warning, but just then he remembered watching a praying Mantis eat her mate after sex and a light bulb lit up above his head. Metis was only halfway through thinking 'thank god the worst is over' before Zeus gobbled her up.

Granted, this was more than a slight inconvenience but there was no-way Metis was just going to be slowly and quietly digested, oh no, she made sure Zeus was in agony.

Haphaestos brought new meaning to the term splitting headache after he noticed his dad was in a spot of pain and after taking a swing with his blacksmiths hammer Zeus gave birth to a goddess from his noggin. The fact Athena popped out fully grown and wearing a suit of armour had jaws dropping all around but at least Zeus' headache had gone.

And what of Metis? Well, presumably she's still in the belly of Zeus getting the inside view from his many sexual conquests.

See Athena for more details.
