Day 6: Favorite MAJOR Greek God/Goddess. This is actually really hard. I like Apollo, Hermes, Hades, Dionysus, Hestia (YEAH SHE'S MAJOR GET OVER YOURSELF), and Hephaestus. So any and all of them. I don't blame any of them for issues with their kids because to me they at least try. They aren't raging jerks like Ares or Zeus or Hera. They have issues and they have strengths, plus most of them have an actual sense of humor. I think by Godly standards they're all pretty cool. Even Hades.
