    Summary

    CLYTEMNESTRA: “You’ve married me by brutal force and by murder. You’ve murdered Tantalus, my first husband and with even more brutal violence, you’ve torn my baby from my breast and dashed it hard against the ground! So angry were my twin brothers, the Dioscuri, that they came charging down from Zeus’ side on their glistening horses to fight you but you went begging to my old father, Tyndareus and he, not only saved you but made me your wife!”

    Summary

    Orestes: “O Zeus! (...) Look down at the fatherless chicks of a father-eagle, dead now, fallen in the deadly coils of a deadly viper.”

    - Aeschylus, Choephori 246-248

    “When vipers copulate, while the male is in the act of procreation and as soon as he has ejaculated his seed, the female seizes him by the neck, and does not let go until she has bitten through. The male dies in the way described, but the female suffers in return for the male the following punishment: avenging their father, the young while they are still within the womb gnaw at their mother and, eating through her bowels, thus make their way out.”

    - Herodotus, Book III 3.109

    Summary

    How a prophetic gift was filling her pieces of future started to fly through her head.

    (After tagging this I feel like I wrote a really gory story… but it’s really very non-graphic and all the violence is cannon compliant, I think.)
