Apples represent immortality.) (Shown: 3 women lounging around a fat tree [painting]) Apples = Immortality Hesperides: Daughters of Atlas Tree guarded by fierce serpent Ladon (Said: Heracles doesn’t want to go in killing and swinging, so he goes and asks for some help from Atlas. [dude that holds the world on his shoulders, but more correct would be that he holds up the sky for punishment, as he is a titan who fought Zeus. ]) (Shown: Stone relief of Heracles holding up sky in a stone relief, Athena helping him a bit) (Said: Atlas will help him, Heracles just has to hold up the sky for him. Atlas gets some and then says ‘Oh boy, I do not want sky thing back, u hold’. So Heracles is like damn, but ok, I’ll hold it if you just hold it for a sec to let me adjust my cushion. Atlas does, Heracles leaves.) Cerberus (Said: Heracles is allowed to take Cerberus by Hades, if he doesn’t use any weapons. So Heracles wrestles and leeches Cerberus. Brings dog up, dude hides in jar. Shown: That same old image of the dude hiding in a jar and Heracles holding 3 headed dog) Heracles is done now, but he can’t stay out of trouble… In Trouble Again: Xenia Heracles has someone comes and visit Heracles, he gets annoyed and just kills them. Violates the sacred law of guest hospitality or some crap.
