Linda Hamonou

I love it when the gods are having troubles.

Donna Cummings

LOL, Linda -- I do too. :)

P.S. I tried to comment on your blog, but it wouldn't let me. I'll try again later. :)

Cara Bristol

"He is a notorious rake, while she is a wallflower," he said.

"That is what makes them perfectly suited!"

LOL, isn't that just the way it works? Now we know why so many opposites hook up together.

Glad to see you back on the WeWriWa circuit!

Donna Cummings

Thanks, Cara! I'm glad to be back. I've missed everyone's snippets. :) And yes, there's definitely something about opposites attract. LOL

S.J. Maylee

"That is what makes them perfectly suited!" <- Love her thinking, lol. Fun interaction. Gosh, I've missed your snippets. :)

Donna Cummings

Thanks, S.J. I've missed sharing my snippets. :) It's fun to be back!

Veronica Scott

VERY amusing and excellent point that Ares is hardly the right person to give advice on tactics of love spells etc. Really enjoyed the excerpt!

Donna Cummings

Thanks, Veronica! They make a fun couple, since they're also an "opposites attract" pairing. LOL

Virginia Kelly

Loved this story. Great fun revisiting something I enjoyed so much. Now, get busy finishing the next one :-)

Donna Cummings

LOL, Virginia -- my goofing-off time today has been taking up a bigger portion of the schedule than I'd anticipated. I will be writing soon. Ish. :)

Kate Warren

I love the interaction between them.

Donna Cummings

Thanks, Kate!

Eleri Stone

Nice banter! Love that last bit especially:D

Donna Cummings

Eleri -- thanks -- I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Millie Burns

I love the bickering of Gods...so fun.


Boy - she gave it right back at him. Sounds like a fun story. But then with your sense of humour everything is lol

Sue Ann Bowling

Sounds like a fun story.

Donna Cummings

Millie -- they do make things fun. :)

Sassy -- I'm always glad to hear you enjoy my sense of humor!

Sue Ann -- thanks! I had fun writing it, that's for sure. :)

karen Y. bynum

Great 8! Love the banter.

Chris Kelworth

Yeah, this is a fun dynamic between Ares and Aphrodite; bantering and even bickering just a little, but you can tell they still love each other. Most pop culture representations of these two I can think of, (basically Valentine and Hercules/Xena,) depict them as bitter exes.

Though I can see Aphrodite's point about telling her how to do her job, I can't help but notice the flip-side, that he seems to be showing more interest in love than she is in fighting. I guess that generally the happy medium is finding a way to express that interest in your partner's job without going too far; letting them use you as a sounding board for whatever work problems they're having. Which is maybe the context for the entire snippet.

Donna Cummings

Thanks, Karen!

Chris, you're right about Ares showing more interest in the love aspects than Aphrodite does in the war ones. He wants her to finish her matchmaking so they can return to Mt. Olympus. :) But he ends up enjoying their sojourn more than he anticipated. LOL A great point about partners finding that happy medium!
