Interview with Eurydice
Shmoop investigators recently discovered that the gods of ancient Greece actually invented Twitter—who would have guessed?—and they've only recently allowed mortals to use it. Below, you will find a thread on Eurydice's account, which documents the entire tale of Orpheus and Eurydice. So, you tell us: is it myth or reality?
Eurydice's Twitter Account:
Today's the day I marry Orpheus. How could I be so lucky?! #ilovemyboo
Epic Lady Calliope
You're beautiful! Can't wait to be your mother-in-law. Orpheus is a lucky boy.
So lucky. You are perfect, Eurydice.
Looks like I did a pretty good job this time, huh? #iknowirock
I think this one was my idea. #iknowirock
A little nervous... I wish my birth tree could uproot itself and be here to hold my hand. #freakingout

You are my spirit, Eurydice. We're always together. You're the best dryad a tree could ask for. I'm crying sappy tears right now! I love you!
I'm married! It's done! I'm so happy! Orpheus is playing his lyre! Everybody's dancing! Nymphs! Satyrs! Gods! Goddesses! Animals! Rocks! TREES!
This. Is. A. Serious. P.A.R.T.Y. #lovinglife
Every song's for you, Eurydice.
What happened?! It's so dark. I'm on the bank of a river... a swampy river. Who are all these people? Wait.. .are they ghosts? Am I dead? NO! What happened? What happened? I got married, and I was sooo happy. And then I was dancing? Picking flowers? Was there a satyr? Aristaeus? Was I chased? I can't remember... WHAT HAPPENED TO ME!?!?! #helpme
You got bit by a snake and died. Painfully. Insert cackle. #stinkstobeyou
There's no need to be mean about it. You Fates are so cruel.
I'm coming for you, Eurydice. I played a song so sad that the gods and animals and rocks and trees cried. The gods told me to come for you, and I'm coming. We'll prove it for good: love conquers all! #ilovemyboo
I love you, Orpheus. Nothing can keep us apart!
Now that's what I call determination.
I'm crying. I'm really crying right now.
Is it possible that Charon, the Boatman, just tried to get my number? I'm in Hell! #helpme
Dark King Hades
No, it's Hades. Don't mix your mythologies. #itshadesnothell
Hurry, Orpheus. I'm miserable without you. I need your music in my life.
I'm so close. I just put Cerberus to sleep with my special sleepy dog lyre song. P.S. Charon tried to get my number, too.
What's so wrong with me? #lookingforlove
Success! Orpheus played a song so beautiful that Persephone and even Hades cried. Hades is letting me go back to the land of the living with Orpheus, as long as he doesn't look back at me until we step into the sunlight. Easy, right?
We'll see about that.
I can almost see the sun! We're so close! ☺
Yay, me! #iknowirock
Eternal Flame Helios
NO ME! #iknowirock
Orpheus looked back. Sadness. Immense. All consuming. Sadness.
This even makes me sad. #evendeathissad
