Hello there. I am a Dionysian and Hellenic Polytheist with a devotional practice centred on the gods of the Hellenic earth and underworld. I am not recon, and though my practices are informed by primary sources, they don't much resemble Hellenismos.
I've been on this website for a number of years, and periodically takes breaks from technology, causing me to delete my account. I no longer remove my account when I take a break, but be aware they may be months when I am busy in "meatspace" and cannot devote much time to online activities.
Before Messaging Me
I am generally happy to receive private messages and willing to share knowledge and discuss subjects, HOWEVER;
- Please DO NOT message me just to say "Hi", "Hello", "Heya", "What's up?" or any other variation of these. Have some kind of purpose for your message, even if it's just a "Hi, we share interests, let's have a chat about them" or something like that. If you want to just chatter, there's a chat room for that.
- DO NOT flirt with me. I'm married and not here looking to date.
- Please DO NOT ask me for spells, or how to get your ex-spouse back. This site is full of spells for you to look at.
- DO NOT ask for free tarot readings. Tarot is a service, if you don't respect the person giving a reading enough to pay for that service then you have no right to that service. If you think I'm being harsh just try asking for a free car wash at the garage sometime.
- DO NOT ask me how to turn into another being, or change your appearance with magic.
- DO NOT bother to send me a message if you don't know how to say "Please" or "Thank you".
- Please DO have a title in your message and be chatty.
Remember it takes me less time to delete a message than it does for you to write one.
