If others thought you were a God...
Our Goddess of Excel?
Whoever she is, she is a fickle mistress, and in order for even her most devout clergy to keep her favour, a G3 Imac must be sacrificed upon an alter of graph paper every blood moon.
She also encourages throat punching hipsters, and people who use OpenOffice.
I don't claim to understand her will, only to serve it.

Kit wrote: Do we have a Goddess of the Stars?
I would want to be the Goddess of the Stars, or at least the Greek muse of the stars, Urania. When I visited the Colosseum in Rome years ago, there was an exhibit of statues in one of the corridors. I had a transformative experience when I saw the statue of Urania, her bare marble arm outstretched, a globe in her hand. In my mind for a long time after, I styled myself as Urania. When I walked through the English countryside with a notebook in hand, I thought of myself as creating worlds upon worlds without end, like the globe that Urania held. For awhile I had a blog called "Star Muse." I think I feel so deeply connected with Urania because gazing at the stars and feeling my own power as a human striding beneath them has been very important to me. Before I ever saw the statue of Urania, I made a habit of looking up at Orion every night, wherever I was in the world. I remember camping in the woods in high school and suddenly realizing that the stars I was looking at were the same stars that humans have looked at and wondered about for thousands of years.
Haha! That does look like fun! And since no one is playing the game in the OP...

Who here is our God of CAT5? Our Goddess of Excel? Our Lord of Paint? Lady of the Weights? Do we have a Goddess of the Stars? God of the Kitchen? Father of Words? Mother of Beasts?
What's your passion? What part of the Divine shines through you? If you were part of a pantheon, what would your aspects be?
I bet you can guess what I am
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ] [ Click to hide ]Kit is the Dame of Creation! Originally responsible for helping to shape the bodies and spirits (mostly animals and stone/gems), she's now the patron deity of artists, craftsmen, and engineers. Often symbolized as a running vixen (usually red, but have been known to be shown as the local fox) with simple feathers and beads tied into the fur behind her ears, she's responsible for delivering that strike of inspiration! Often cursed by her followers for her poor timing, her favorite time to work is the space between when you lay down in bed, and when you fall asleep. But you have to be quick! She can bolt right out the window if you wait too long.
You can catch her attention by listening to music, reading, or experiencing any other form of art or craft. Shrines made to this deity should hold feathers, antlers, brushes, pens, ink, paint, beads, or any other interesting and/or shiny bobbles. Fruit Punch Sobe can be offered or drank in tribute.
Other names: Kit, Lady of Craft
Now, what about you?
While he works fairly well with other deities he is known to be aggressive (at times) and crafty. He is the god of human madness, not that he causes madness, but that he is half-mad most of the time and completely insane in fits and spurts. As the god of creative writing he is known to spur creativity and inspiration. In his aspect as the god of fictions and half-truths he is known for being somewhat deceitful or misleading, so one should always take his "suggestions" with a grain of salt.
Hahaha. That WAS fun! Thanks, Kit!
