I did this a while ago(more like a month ago) and found that none of this happens because I also found a different one, didn't do it, and lived.

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

You have a point .o.
I think it's just it gets more attention such as comments, views, downloads, and favorites.

Why is this particular picture so popular? It is a very good picture but I just don't see what sets it apart  from all the other very good pictures of its kind on this site.

No I haven't seen the quote you are mentioning but it does sound familiar. As for Hades/Persephone view you are correct. There are a few myths where Persephone willingly goes with Hades to the underworld. In some myths Persephone and Hades actually love each other and have a healthy relationship and in others they rule together as friends. I personally prefer these versions of the Persephone/ Hades.

I read a quote somewhere that sounded like a different take on Persephone/Hades. Anyone seen this around somewhere?: "I'm no fool. I was not kidnapped. I chose a throne over a tiara & a kingdom over a meadow."
