Mythology geeks, ahoy!

I would like to introduce you to my new favorite website: 


ENCYCLOPEDIA MYTHICA

That's right.  It's a comprehensive online encyclopedia of mythology that is apparently free and reliable!  (<--Most articles appear to have *references*.  Everyone say, "Oooh, ahhhh.")  I can just search Penthesilia or Sir Percival or whatever mythical figure I want and boom--concise summations of their stories at my fingertips!

Some articles even have pictures!  For instance, here's Dido being all weird and clingy as usual.

SO COOL, RIGHT?  (Yes, I get excited about these things.  This is why I'm considering a classical studies major.)

And even though my current WiP is in no way a mythology spinoff (except in the ways that all stories are mythology spinoffs...), mythology definitely influences my storytelling--both consciously and subconsciously, I'm sure. 

Why haven't found this website before??!?!!  DAY MADE. 


Aaaaaand Tyler-Rose is apparently reading a very good book, because when I checked to make sure I should post this today, her response was (intense whisper):  "Don't speak to me!" 

It's The Rose Garden by Susanna Kearsley.  All I know about it is that it includes handsome ghosts.
