Em hotep!  -henu-

-jumps on the bandwagon-

I have met very few people from the House, primarily because my work keeps me busy- go Navy!  However, of the few I've met, I can give a run down!

I agree wholeheartedly with everything people have said so far about Tek and Bes.  She, Shefyt, and I (plus my hubby) all went to the King Tut exhibit a few years ago when it was in Philly, and Lemme tell you... Tek was awesome.  So talkative, she made me feel immediately at home with her.  Especially since she bravely wore her Alliance shirt to contrast my proud Horde hoodie!  =D

As for Shefyt, she just felt like Bast.  She did!  So calm, it was like a cool spot in the room, especially since I was nervous and fidgety.  Yes, I said it.  XD  

As for what people think about me... well.  I'm goofy when I need to be; serious, when I need to be; I love to laugh, even if I do get nervous when meeting people for the first time.  Heh.  I love to talk about all kinds of things, and I love love LOVE hanging out with people who share my interests (but who doesn't?)  

=D

Senebty!

I apologize for interrupting this interesting thread but I find it very interesting that you (Nityinpu) were at the King Tut exhibition in Philly, because I was there too! :) Huh, what a small world; I wonder who else might have been there....

Incidentally, before Imti I had no idea how to approach Nebt-Het, even though She is part of my beloved Seshat.

Truth be told, I've gotten to know Gods mostly through Their kids here.

Em hotep!

How many of us have learned about our own Parent(s) through their other children? :)

My understanding of Seshat has changed since meeting my sister Ma'aut.  The differences in our personalities echo our Beloveds and our Shemsu names, but we are both within Seshat's spectrum.  I don't quite understand that end of the spectrum as well, but I don't think I'm necessarily supposed to.  She has it covered. :D

As I said earlier in this thread, I definitely know my perceptions of Sekhmet were shaped through my interactions with Daryt :) We talked about Mom extensively when I first came to the House, and she helped me understand Sekhmet-Hethert.

Also, talking to Peri helps me understand the differences between Sekhmet-Hethert and Sekhmet-Mut. And it helps that we were friends before we ever came to the House, so you could say we have been feeling these differences out for awhile.

well, my understanding of Seshat and Her connection to me certainly changed a lot after meeting and talking with you, Sesha.

I am constantly learning about Mom from Her other children, both flavors.

Thank Netjer for the children of Hethert.

At the time of my RPD in 2005, I was terrified by the prospect that Hethert would be in my divination. For a while it was easy enough to ignore that She is the other side of my Beloved Sekhmet. I would still be cowering with regards to getting to know Her side of my Beloved better if not for reading posts about Hethert from Her children. It's only been in the last 6 months or so that I've really started to become comfortable with Hethert and understand how She fits into Sekhmet, something that would never have been possible without Hethert's children.

I most certainly learn from both my siblings and children of other Names.  I particularly find children of aspected and synchretized Names to be enlightening.

Ooh, ooh! Me! :D

I have learned a ridiculous amount about my Mother through Her other children, especially KI Sedjemes, Meza, and Wasi. All of the Names are complex, but Aset especially so with Her shapeshifter aspect. It's fascinating how different and similar our perceptions and experience often are.

Em Hotep,

I must confess that I did not like Set before coming to the HoN.

But then I met Tanakhtsenu and she taught much about him and about her other father, Khepera.  

Because of her I started to see Set in another light and it was great.

I have also learned lots of new things about my Mother with my brothers and sisters here.

Senebty,

Firstly, what an awesome idea for a thread, brother. Awesome not because of the kind things you wrote of me (*BLUSH*) but because as has been said before, it is so very true!

How can one not see your grin on your Father's face?
How can one not feel the energy and passion of Tek, and not feel that from Bes?
How can one meet Antybast and not begin to wonder how they got a cat to wear a tie?

I've found the best way to experience my Mother is through my siblings through Her. Sometimes it's really funny how much we all act alike in some way or another. Aset is kind of the same, and with Her I also sort of feel Her relationship with me through my relations with Her kids.
