BC: The End.
FC: The Story of Perseus | By Nailah Khatri and Miranda Gayer
1: Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess named Danae. Although her father loved her very much, he was always hoping he would have a son. He traveled to see one of the gods and asked if this would ever come true. After traveling such a long way, he was told that he would not have a son himself and that his daughter would have a son that would eventually kill him.
2: The king didn't want to die , so he locked Danae in a house that was completely guarded.
4: Danae sat in the house for a very long time until she was welcomed by a miracle. Zeus, the king of the gods, came to her rescue. They fell in love and eventually had a wonderful child named Perseus.
6: Afraid that Perseus would be killed by her father, Danae quickly ran with her son. They traveled far by sea and eventually came across land.
8: Danae and Perseus were warmly welcomed by a man named Dictys and his wife. After many years, the ruler of the land and Dictys brother, Polydectes decided that he wanted to marry Danae. He did want her hand in marriage, but also wanted to get rid of Perseus.
10: Polydectes compiled a plan to send Perseus to fetch the head of one of the most fearsome gorgons, Medusa. This great journey seemed to be impossible, but Perseus had two great gods, Hermes and Athena, watching over him.
12: Hermes told Perseus that he must find where the gorgons live and find something to protect himself with. He said to find the Gray Woman in order to find where the gorgons live. Perseus found the Gray Woman in a land where all was dark and scary. Perseus thought of a plan to have the Gray Woman tell him where the gorgons lived.
14: To have protection against the gorgons, Hermes gave Perseus a special sword that could not be bent or broken by the Gorgon's scales. Athena also gave Perseus a great gift, a shield of polished bronze to look into when attacking the gorgons. Perseus knew this was such an important gift because if he did indeed look at the gorgons straight in the eye, he would turn to stone.
16: After a long journey, Perseus finally found the gorgons. Both Athena and Hermes guided Perseus telling him who Medusa was since the other gorgons were couldn't die. With their help, Perseus managed to quickly achieve what he had came for. With one swift stroke of the sword, Perseus was holding Medusa's head.
18: As Perseus was traveling back home, he stopped by Ethiopia and met a girl named Andromeda. They fell in love and continued to travel back to Perseus' mother.
20: When they made it back, Perseus couldn't find his mother. He realized she went into hiding because of the refusal of the marriage proposal given by Polydectes. To free his mother, he traveled to the palace. He raised the head of Medusa turning both the King and his servants into stone.
22: After finding his mother, they both decided to travel back to see his grandfather. Just like the gods said, the grandfather ended up being killed by Perseus in a harmless athletic contest. Years later, Perseus and Andromeda had a beautiful son named Electryon.
