Brace yourselves, back story is coming
Nope that’s kinda it. For the moment anyway.
I imagine it’d be pretty out of character for Catherin to start explaining everything regarding her dad dying. She’s hardly an open book. At least that was what I thought of her.
-waits in anxious suspense!-
I’m wondering if this is telling us about Ares that he’d pick Cat. Ares is an easy to make the villain owing to his proficiency at war and the degree to which he personifies war as a nasty business, in addition to the fact that just being a greek god means he’s naturally an asshat too.
Cat knows the city, the country and more than her share of trouble. If you kick her, she will get back up and come back on you with a vengeance. You can kinda see why Aries took a shine to her.
Interesting thought, wonder if all the gods got ‘dibs’ on a specific girl or did they figuratively drawed straws? lol
Haha, someone else who shrugs at the whole Native vs. Indian PC crap. My mom’s family is Cherokee, dad’s is Choctaw and Blackfoot with a large dose of Irish orneriness. I get a kick out of people thinking that calling me “Indian” is some huge sin. Whatever. Then they try “Native American Indian” as if putting it all together will make everyone happy. That term is too darn long! I like Canada’s “First Nations.” It’s only 3 syllables. Easier on the tongue.
That all came as me voicing my own opinions about PC naming. My parents are Cuban, I was born in Puerto Rico but have lived in U.S. since I was about five. You can say I’m Cuban but I’ve never been there and know only what my parents have told me about it. I don’t like being called Puerto Rican cause I never knew the place good enough to identify it. I hate the term Latino. It sounds so artificial and pretentious. And why does the Spanish speaking world get called Latino but Italians are Italians? They’re the ones that invented Latin for pete’s sake. If you have to identify my ethnic background I prefer Spanish or even Hispanic.
My best friend is in the same boat. Her mother is Puerto Rican, but my friend has never been there, so she can’t truly identify. Since we live near the Mexican border, everyone assumes she’s Mexican, and she gets angry about that (so does my friend from Belize). She doesn’t like the terms Spanish, since she’s not from Spain, even if waaaaaay back her family was from there. She also does not like “Latino,” since that designates a language more than a nationality, and she speak only limited Spanish. She’ll accept “Puerto Rican” only to appease everyone, but she prefers being called simply “American.” Most of us are products of melting pots anyway. That’s why I prefer my usual answer:
“I’m a Heinz 57 American. I’m like ketchup: a little of everything and tastes good with anything!”
Let me interject.
Hi, I’m white.
Latino comes from “lationamericano” and as far as I remember it was invented in the XIX century as way to distinguish americans (as the continent) who spoke english and americans who spoke romance languages. Unfortunately they exclude people who speak auctotonous languages but that was XIX century, so it’s not surprised.
Funny you hate the term latino, personally I hate the term hispanic… but I guess it depends the place you live.
