Welcome to Mythable Myths - an introduction of sorts

Hello and welcome, so nice of you to drop by. My name is Kristen, and I love mythology. I’m not even going to narrow it down, because I love mythology in its entirety - starting at just purely and simply its definition:

my·thol·o·gy


[mi-thol-uh-jee]
 
noun, plural [my·thol·o·gies.]
  1. a body of myths, as that of a particular people or thatrelating to a particular
     person: 
    Greek mythology.
  2. myths collectively.
  3. the science or study of myths.
  4. a set of stories, traditions, or beliefs associated with aparticular
    group or the history of an event, arising naturally or deliberately fostered: 
    the Fascist mythology of the interwaryears.


and of course not to exclude its root:

myth


[mith]

noun

  1. a traditional or legendary story, usually concerning some being or hero or event, with or without a determinable basis of fact or a natural explanation, especially one that is concerned with deities or demigods and explains some practice, rite, or phenomenon of nature.
  2. stories or matter of this kind: realm of myth.
  3. any invented story, idea, or concept: His account of the event is pure myth.
  4. an imaginary or fictitious thing or person.
  5. an unproved or false collective belief that is used to justify a social institution.
Though of course, if you are wandering about here - 
chances are in favor of you already knowing all that <3
