Fairy Tale prompt April 24th 2015 “Pronada’s Box”

Pandora's Box

Good Day dear friends of MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie,

It’s time again for a new episode of our Fairy Tale prompt. Today I love to tell you a little bit more about “Pandora’s Box”, maybe you have heard from that myth. I will give you a short oversight of this myth.

In classical Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman on Earth. Zeus ordered Hephaestus to create her. So he did, using water and earth. The gods endowed her with many gifts: Athena clothed her, Aphrodite gave her beauty, Apollo gave her musical ability, and Hermes gave her speech.
According to Hesiod, when Prometheus stole fire from heaven, Zeus took vengeance by presenting Pandora to Prometheus’ brother Epimetheus. Pandora opens a jar containing death and many other evils which were released into the world. She hastened to close the container, but the whole contents had escaped except for one thing that lay at the bottom – Elpis (usually translated “hope”, though it could also mean “expectation”).

For this Fairy Tale prompt “Pronada’s Box” I challenge you to write a short story or poem in which you are telling about “Pronada’s Box” which contains the opposites of death and many other evils. As Pronada opens the box all those positive things are released into the world, but than … Pronada is bitten by a bug and dies …. the last thing which had become free was death …

What does happen after this event occurs?

When you’re done, TAG the post Fairy Tale Prompt and MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie, and add your link to the Mister Linky widget. If you can link to this post – allowing a Pingback – that would be helpful too. We don’t want to miss your post if the widget isn’t functioning properly.
