Would it be ok if I versioned this? It is such a famous pic and I roleplay with some friends and the whole enviroment of this piece would suit perfectly the situation between two of these rpg characters. I would credit you, of course.

This is still one of my favorite works by you. 
Having grown up on Greek/Roman myths I always thought the story of Hades falling for Persephone was actually a sweet one (kidnapping aside)- and I feel like you really caught a tender moment between them. :)

It reminded me of a long fantasy poem in Persian (my mother tongue). It's named "Layla and Majnun" and It's the best love story I've ever heard :)

From the winter that you have painted, to the light that shines upon Persephone. You breathe in a life that cannot truly be described in the current human language.  Hades, always portrayed as evil, sometimes ugly, was given a touch of how a God should look. Letting the contrast between them both be subtle, yet still bold, is such a nice touch. 

Thank you for this, for it tells me the story that many forget.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room
