Em Hotep Seta, *henu*

Good to see you about the boards again.

Still making sure that I get to listen to my Mother's Frog Song, but I also try and give Hapi some love too.

Senebty!

Almost all of my gods, barring Sekhmet and Wepwawet, can probably be considered odd gods. Nebt-het is fairly well-known but doesn't have a ton of children; Hethert-Nut is gaining popularity but still doesn't have many children, either. (*waves to Ha'aut*) Ma'ahes is lesser-known.

I also work with Sepa semi-regularly, and Wadjet, and Anhur, and Ptah (Whom I completely adore, and those who've said He's calm and steady and wonderful are absolutely right). Ptah is sort of the unofficial household god, since my partner and I are both writers and makers.

I've touched on Nehebkau briefly before - I have an enormous fondness for all the snake deities - and Renenutet and Wosret/Wesret. I also have a small relationship with Heh, Khepera, and Twtw.

Honestly, if it's a little-known god, I'm probably all excited about learning more and saying hi. >_>

*waves back!!!*

Gosh, I didn't even think of Hethert-Nut. She's so overwhelmingly HUGE the way I experience Her that it didn't occur to me that, well, yes, She definitely is one of the lesser known Hethert syncretisms.

I also realized that I forgot to mention Iah (who is to the moon disc what Aten is to the sun disc... only without the historical political baggage, I suppose). For some reason I've never been able to connect with any of the other moon gods, but I say hello to Iah any time I see him in the sky.

Given my brain I am not surprised I forgot to mention this, but I am also slooooowly developing a relationship with Banebdjedet.

I am a son of Shu, apparently also one of the first divined children of him, though I believe at one point, there was someone else who also had His name as a Parent. I haven't been able to get in contact with them.

While he has a huge part in the mythology, I haven't seen very many people who work with him, and have talked with less.

hello everyone!!

while nearly everyone knows a thing or two about Bes, i do think He's one of the deities folks don't really interact with. im not sure why, since He's easy to get along with and applicable to day-to-day life! a very sweet guy!!

i also hang out with Khonsu often. He's been getting more popular recently, but is still a bit under the radar.

I seem to have got a pull from the old Ogdoad last night, but can't seem to find much on Kek and especially Keket, who was the one pulling strongest!?

Could anyone else help me out with them?

HUGE Godess, isn't She? Nut is my Mother, so my relationship with Her is quite intimate.

I wouldn't even know how to approach Ma'at.

I once had an encounter with Nit. She was watching me, but not speaking, and her anger was palpable.

Also intrigued by Set, Wepwawet, Nit, Nekhbet, Wadjet, and Amunet.
