Athena: Do you have any special talents?
I don’t really know. I have some and can do special things but I don’t think I have some special talent. I don’t know.
Ares: If you had to fight someone in a duel, what would be your weapon of choice?
I would go for a bow. I love having distance and that the enemy don’t come to near to me.
Zeus: If you ruled the world, what would you change?
What a hard question this is. I don’t know. I could go with a funny answer like: Every Friday there is free pizza or food porn is not allowed. Or I could go with a serious answer like: I will feed all poor people and stop war.But I think the reality would be more like I would sit in Versailles,having a tone of servants, enjoy the money and the power, wearing a giant gold crown with diamonds and sitting on a throne.
