Echo ended the video recording on her phone with a dramatic gesture as the last credits rolled off the top of the movie screen. Rewinding to the very beginning, her heart swelled with pride as the Disney logo shone from her tiny device. Cell phone videos weren’t her favorite to upload, but she didn’t have many options while the movie was still in theaters. In any case, this was the highest quality she’d achieved yet. The lights in the theater came on, and she switched over to her website, clicking on the link where she always went to upload. But instead of the familiar file picker, her phone screen went dark.

Echo pressed the home button, then the power button frantically, but her phone didn’t come back on. Somebody leaned over her shoulder, the seat they had been sitting on creaking. Echo froze - she thought everyone else had left the theater. “You should stop spreading things that don’t belong to you,” the figure whispered. A single word illuminated her phone screen. HERA.

Hello! I have a few questions

1. Should we be keeping the names of our characters from our myths? Or would it be better for us to change their names?
2. Since this is a retelling, should we be keeping the characters original appearance? Or do we have creative liberty?

1. It would be preferable if you kept the names the same.
2. It's alright to modernize certain aspects of your character's appearance, such as clothing or hairstyle. However, their base attributes (such as hair/eye color) should stay the same.

Looking for partner(s).

I only ask that you don't bail on me, disappear without telling me or go saying you don't like certain things, even though I said so in the beginning.

pls tag.
