Fairytale Twist by Bluesky55j Fairytale Twist by Bluesky55j
Apollo and Daphne
Sesshomaru and Kagome

"Apollo loved her, and longed to obtain her; and he who gives
oracles to all in the world was not wise enough to look into his
own fortunes. He saw her hair flung loose over her shoulders,
and said, "If so charming in disorder, what would it be if
arranged?" He saw her eyes bright as stars; he saw her lips, and
was not satisfied with only seeing them. He admired her hands
and arms bared to the shoulder, and whatever was hidden from view
he imagined more beautiful still. He followed her; she fled,
swifter than the wind, and delayed not a moment at his
entreaties. "Stay," said he, "daughter of Peneus; I am not a
foe. Do not fly me as a lamb flies the wolf, or a dove the hawk.
It is for love I pursue you. You make me miserable, for fear you
should fall and hurt yourself on these stones, and I should be
the cause. Pray run slower, and I will follow slower. "

This is my contest entry for :iconsesskag:'s fairytale twist contest. I loved this contest Idea. I love mythology, and I love this story.

Basically for those who do not know

Apollo makes fun of Cupid for "playing with arrows" and Cupid, enraged, shot Apollo with a golden arrow to make him fall in love with Daphne. Cupid then shot Daphne with a arrow that made her never want to fall in love.

Apollo chases Daphne, and Daphne runs!

As Daphne eventually tires she calls to her father and asks to be changed into something that would not be so desired, and so he turned her into a laurel
tree.

Cupid got sweet sweet revenge.


I have Kagome changing into a more...Asian style tree. But same Idea.

I feel like Sess would piss off Cupid too...this could have happened to him.

Sess/kag not owned by me. Fanarts!

XD I actually had this exact same idea when I saw the contest. It's fabulous, since I envision a pure priestess fearing the warlord forced to love her and running away, calling upon nature to save her, turns herself into the Sacred God Tree. :3

Thank you!
I became obsessed with this story after a art history teacher in college did a talk on it along with a sculpture, the entire class was just moved to silence, it was partly the story and partly the amazing teacher we had and his ability to story-tell.
