I know what's coming now. What I'm wondering is whether the abduction / elopement is going to be as melodramatic as it was in most versions of the myth.

I'm guessing that Artemis will disapprove of the whole thing but that Athena might have some sneaking sympathy for Hades, especially if she knows that Persephone loves Hades and that Zeus disapproves of the union.

I was thinking about the situation and it seems unlikely that even Hades could overpower all three goddesses if they all disapproved of the elopement. Or even really overpower Artemis and Athena, both of whom were major badasses in Greek mythology.

If I'm reading your version correctly, Artemis has major problems with men as men, while Athena is simply asexual, and quite capable of strongly caring for men she finds admirable. So she might understand Persephone in this matter.

In my version Artemis is a lesbian and Athena is asexual (but not aromantic). You're right that Hades probably wouldn't be able to overpower both of them. That's why he needs to be sneaky...
