A/N: Howdy! This will be a series of drabbles (100 word pieces) centered around Hera, queen of the gods, goddess of marriage, et cetera, et cetera. The third in the newly-dubbed Perspective series, which began with Everybody Hates Hades and Confessions of a Slightly Inebriated Wine God. You don't need to read them to understand The Good Wife; they're simply united by a common theme.

I hope you guys enjoy these. The books are pretty anti-Hera (because you have to admit, Hera is a little... witchy... in them). Hopefully, though, this makes you look at things through her eyes. Give it a shot. Reviews always appreciated!


The Good Wife


Appreciation


She really wishes people acknowledged her more.

It's not her fault she can't have children to glorify her. It's not her fault her husband tricked her into being queen of the gods. It's not her fault she's forced to sit around Olympus while Zeus goes off doing heroic deeds and having affairs.

So can people really blame her for being bitter? For wishing that she, too, could have glory that wasn't based out of fear and necessary respect? For wanting things to go her way, just once?

All she wants is appreciation. And it's the one thing she doesn't have.
