    similar to the Percy Jackson series where my main protagonist gets powers from the Greek Gods and fights evil. For some reason, I was drawn to having a relationship between him and Artemis because Artemis doesn't like boys, so I was going to have her be really mean to him...

    I'm new. Trying to find my way.

    I believe I have special connections to Poseidon. I'm 17 and a half. I've been Roman Catholic all my life. But it's not what I want. I felt the Gods personal call. I need to know. I'm scared. But should I accept the call?? I would throw away all my Catholic teachings. HELP?!?!

    I'd love to make an altar to a God/Goddess.

    It wouldn't be permanent, I'd change the God/goddess around every now and then, although it would mostly be my patron god, but I would love to do that. Does anybody have an altar to a God/Goddess?
