[Peter Paul Rubens: Jove and Callisto, 1613. – It’s Jove disguised as Diana trying to seduce Callisto. But what if it wasn’t Jove, but actually Diana herself?]
I’ve uploaded another of the experimental stories that my evil twin writes after dark.
It’s called Big Dipper and it is another Bering & Wells Über/AU story, set this time in Classical Greek/Roman Mythology.
I don’t know how this happened – that’s the beautiful thing with these evil twin bits: I just have a weird idea and then simply write, and I do not try to find a reasonable excuse for doing so.
It comes with notes, so it should make some sense, and it will make same sense to the opera and to the Ovid fans, since it is a twist on the Callisto myth. There’s a nice opera that goes with it (thank you, Cavalli), and while it is delightfully queer, I thought there should be a really gay version of it, so I fit it into a Bering & Wells story and made it a truly lesbian Callisto tale, with Helena in the title role.
