Short film: My Last Day

My Last Day is a 2011 Christian anime short film created by The Jesus Film Project, with Barry Cook and STUDIO4°C. The story unfolds through the eyes of a criminal who receives the same crucifixion sentence as Jesus Christ. This is a short film of regret, repentance and redemption.

The film begins with a prisoner watching from the prison bars as Jesus gets flogged in Pilate’s courtyard. He remembers Jesus teaching and wonders why they’re hurting an innocent man. Horrified, he remembers his own crime: He’s in an alley with a rich gentleman. Holding him up with a knife, he tries to take a box of coins and belongings. The thief is nervous so when he tries to go after the man, he fumbles. The man fights him with the box. Coins go flying. The thi…

Cold Love

The myth of Pygmalion and Galatea, but if Aphrodite ignored the man's wishes.

In an old shed with mould covered walls and broken doors, sat a lonely sculptor. The stench of sweat and rotting wood danced around him. He sat to admire his work, searching for an imperfection. The sculptor’s chisel fell to the ground. Awe and fear scattered across his face. His masterpiece was finally complete. There were no imperfections. Before his hollow- eyes stood his marbled love. She stared at the sculptor with emotionless eyes. The man crawled across the filth to touch the plump thigh of his sculpted lover.

Upon his lover’s bleached skin remained the sculptor’s grimy fingerprints. For the first time in years, the sculptor smiled, causing his dried lips to…

braithology categorization

classes, levels, titles, and ranks. the class/level/title/rank system, or the categorization system. a way for me to put my characters into neat little boxes! also helpful if i ever make gacha game out of this.

(below this point has been copy pasted from the official document! original doc can be found here)


What they are & how they work

An Official Braithology Document


So, what are classes, levels, titles, and ranks?

  • CLASS - the height of a given character’s status or power within braithology
  • LEVEL - how powerful a given character is within their class
  • TITLE - an arbitrary term used to show what a character’s abilities are
  • RANK - how hard/rare a character is to obtain

CLASSES are measured …

Ayo! I'm New!

Hello! I'm dcom, and I am new here! I made an edit or two, and I'll check out the discussions. This wiki is awesome! I'm a PJO\MC\HoO\ToA fan, but my fascination for myths started back when I was like six. My first grade year we did World History, and spent a month or two on the Greeks. I was fascinated with Sparta, where I learned it's said that Sparta is Ares' city. Ares led me to learn about Greek mythology, that led me to read PJO, and then got me into Norse myths (YAS). I now do a lot of myth incoperated writing, mostly Norse rn. You can find me on Quotev here:

I also love the music produced by League of Legends, MCU, Becky G, Zendaya, DuckTales, Narnia, Star Wars, and more.

The Faun

The faun (Capranthropus faunus) also known as the "silenos" or the "satyr" is a bipedal bovid native to Greece and Rome, but originally came from Planet Olympus. Males are more common than females, and they were believed to be an all-male species for a while too.

About Akkor-kamuy

There are few things I want to point out regarding this entity.

At-kor-kamuy [アッコロカムイ/大章魚] is a mythological monster from the Ainu legends literally meaning “deity (kamuy) with tentacles (at-kor)” in Ainu language. The origin of At-kor-kamuy, according to Ainu people’s oral tradition from Toyo-ura Town [豊浦町] in Abuta District [虻田郡] (Hokkaido), tells how a giant spider called Yauskep [ヤウシケプ] emerged from earth and began destroying the villages. Upon hearing the villager’s cry for help, the Ainu deities appointed Repun-kamuy [レプンカムイ] to solve the problem; deity of sea/ocean in the Ainu Mythology. In order to save the villagers, Repun-kamuy drew Yauskep into the Gulf of Funka [噴火湾] (today’s Gulf of Uchiura [内浦湾]) and transformed the giant spid…

The Olympians are a race of energy-based beings from an extradimensional planet called "Olympus", who were worshipped by the ancient Greeks and Romans. But since humanity has long outgrown their need for deities, they no longer seek worship, and thus returned to their homeworld. As for their past attitudes, being immortal gave them plenty of time to reflect on their past misdeeds and nowadays they've decided to better themselves.

Their lineage can be traced back to insanely large humanoids known as the "Titans", specifically as offspring of the ones named "Rhea" and "Kronos".

Roman Mythology Film

I'm thinking of doing a film on Roman mythology, mainly the founding of Rome and the sons of Mars, the god of war. Let me know your thoughts.

Raised by a wolf and adopted by shepherds, the twins Romulus and Remus are unaware of their royal blood and that they are demigods, sons of the war god Mars. It is the dawn of a new empire, one that would change the world forever.

Dragon Family

The Dragon Family is a species of the same category of how the world had viewed Dragons, the example is in that the East had Long/Asian Dragon and Drukk/Arctic Dragon as how the east had viewed dragons of the culture. While the Americas had Coatl and Amphiptere that are Serpents with Wings as the East viewed them as gods. But the complete Serpentine like the Leviathan/Sea Orc that always labeled as Dragons of the Sea and the Wyrm/Basilisk as seen in most of English to Irish Folklore as images of the Devil. The unusual is the Hydra which has multi heads, and the Basilisk/Tarasque with multiple legs and eyes. The ones more similar to Dinosaurs are the Wyvern similar to the Therapods like T-Rex and The Dragonette similar to the Bird footed Din…

Rings of power in Norse mythology

Among the vikings, the ring was a potent symbol of power, fortune and fame. A gift of honor and form of currency, it was also sometimes a royal heirloom. The magic rings of Norse mythology were also symbols of destiny and, in their bleakest form, symbols of doom. One famous example was the cursed ring, Andvarinaut, which blighted many lives. Another ring of doom was Thor's Domhring, formed by a circle of stone statues surrounding a punishment pillar in front of his temple. The Domhring possibly symbolized the inevitability of retribution. Much more joyous and fabulous rings were Odin's astounding Draupnir which literally dripped eight similar gold rings every nine days; or Thor's Oath Ring, a symbol of fair play and good faith. The rings o…

Hello, people of said “seemingly inactive” wiki. My name is Gabe, otherwise known as *reads username* Loki42.

I’ve been interested in mythology for a long time. And I’ve joined the Fandom a few years ago. But it only occurred to me recently to start showing my love for these things. So here I am I suppose.

Now, this isn’t my first time editing pages, and since I’ve read all of the Percy Jackson books I should be an expert on all of this (that was a joke btw 😁). I’ve done a bit of java programming blah, blah, blah I’ll just cut to the point.

I’m interested in working on editing this wiki for a long while.

Creatures and Beings of China Folklore and Lower Mythology

As now it is Chinese New Year, I want to write something about Chinese culture. I have held a poll to ask everyone if they wanted more articles about Chinese culture. However, although the answers were yes, there were only 3 people voted. Therefore, I now write the Chapter 0 to see your reaction about that and think if it should be continued.

Chapter 0 will be more interested by you as it is about Chinese legend monsters. After reading it, you may use the ideas from this article to make a new Kaiju. Ancient China has a ton of legend monsters. This article will only focus on some of them.

Before introducing the monsters, I am going to introduce an ancient book called Shan Hai Jing (山海經). Most of the Chinese legend monsters have been recorded …

Good day,

I was just thinking the other day, that when we post an image of a photo, sculpture or painting, or any type of depiction, if possible, make sure to credit the person responsible for the image, if possible. This would included on the caption for the image. 

I dont mean for any of you to spent hours searching who made what, just that in the case you come across the name of the author, include it if you can.

Hey there. As everyone on this wiki has noticed, the admins are inactive, and this is a problem as we can't delete unneeded pages and protect the wiki from trolls and vandals. I can't stand to see a wiki without active staff, so I have decided to adopt the wiki. To do this I need the support of all active users, so please leave a comment to show your opinion. I have been using wikis for more than a year, and I have succesfully adopted a wiki before, so I know how the process works. I am also an admin on another wiki, so I know what I'm doing when it comes to managing a community.

Once upon a time there lived a bird of fire. It laid no eggs and had no young. It lived in peace in a far away desert land. It was here when time began and is still living today hidden in a far away land living its life in peace. Its name is the Phoenix, the bird of fire and the bird of the sun. And that is where our story begins when the sun called out to it and saw its shimmering fathers of fire red and golden, Royal blue, and forest green yet silver as a still lake all at the same time. As bright and beautiful as the sun itself .seeing all its glory the sun called out to it “Phoenix bird of fire, you shall be my creature and live for ever as I shall.” Live forever the phoenix was overjoyed and through back his head proud and stro…

Abominable Snowman/Yeti Captured in Russia

At a 2011 conference in Russia, participating scientists and enthusiasts declared having "95% evidence" of the Yeti's existence. However, this claim was disputed later; American anthropologist and anatomist Jeffrey Meldrum, who was present during the Russian expedition, claimed the "evidence" found was simply an attempt by local officials to drum up publicity.

Infobox revamp preview!

I've made a new redesign for the wiki's infoboxes. In the coming days/weeks, this new design will take over for all existing infobox templates. It will have minor tweaks in the next couple days, but the overall design is final. View it here! Please provide some feedback!

Improvements made:

  • Links to affiliated wiki restored and fixed its problems
  • Smaller sized font, width of box, and image size reduced from 250px to 150px
  • Transparency so you can see the background behind it!
  • Actual "caption" field added (the "Title" field was used as a substitute before by some users)
  • Language field added (for example, you can put the Greek name of Zeus, Ζεύς, in there and so on with other languages and such)
