When last we left Ariadne, she was explaining how
- her mother had sex with a bull
- the resulting Minotaur, her half-brother, was put into the labyrinth
- all of which is Daedalus’s fault
Today we get a little more: Theseus mentions his part in slaying the Minotaur, and Ariadne throws it in his face that he couldn’t have done it without her telling him the secret of getting in and back out again.
From here, I think we’re going to get a little interpolated text, just a little something for Ariadne and Theseus to sing before she launches into her I LOVE YOU DAMMIT bit.
I would like to state for the record that the piddling amount that is new in today’s selection represents days of my writing stuff that went absolutely nowhere, and you will notice that Ariadne’s last bit is still in the boogie-woogie style we started with. Next section, pretty music. I swear.
