I liked your story, you did a good job :)
Though, I feel I have to defend Odysseus, at least a bit. In ancient Greek the sex sphere and the love sphere were totally separated: so, what Odysseus and Penelope share is what we call love (φιλία, philía, in ancient Greek) and what Odysseus and Calypso or Circe share is simple "passion" (ήρος, éros, "carnal love"). Odysseus did not cheat on Penelope because he remained mentally faithful to her: he did not love any other woman, even if more beautiful, powerful or, in Nausicaa's case, young. And he always, always felt homesick. And, being his home his wife, I think Odysseus is the real example of the loving, caring husband, that would do anything for his faithful, waiting wife: he longs for here while he is far away, he revenges himself on Penelope's suitors and kills them all, pointing out that he's the one, and only, king, the one and only allowed to love, in both ways, the queen. On the other hand there are some things that I should say against Penelope, but I really feel like she and I are fellows, I am quite tired because it's past 1 a.m. where I'm writing and, more than that, I'm speaking a language that's not even my own XD

That was very well written! I loved how you described her pain... Thank god Telemachus did not found ou what happen, he would hate his father for hurting his mother.

But I would have NEVER forgived him. u_u Those were only 10 of the years that he was away... Imagine during the war or the end of it? u_u Poor Penelope... T_T She is my favorite character along with Telemachus and Odysseus is an idiot who dosen't deserve either fo them. u_u

That was really good. I loved the way you wrote Penelope. It has always bothered me that he slept with Calypso and Circe while she was faithful to him for all that time.
