Icarus and the sun book
Icarus Sun (WIP - Update December 27, ) - Works In Progress - Choice of Games ForumWhen Minos discovered that the Minotaur had been killed, the Athenians had escaped and his precious Ariadne had left with them, he was furious. He summoned Daedalus: "Daedalus, Athenian, once you came to me with Icarus your son. You took me by the knees in pitiful supplication and asked me for asylum. For you had killed Perdix, your nephew, pushing him off the Acropolis, envious of his accomplishments, when you saw him invent the tooth-edged saw, and the potter's wheel and compasses, and knew that he surpassed you in inventiveness. And Athena herself, your patron, felt pity for your apprentice and transformed him into a partridge. Even now he is scared of heights and shows how clever he is by flying low over scrub to avoid raptors and hunters. Now Theseus, a prince of Athens, has killed my bull of a son and escaped from the Labyrinth which you devised so cleverly, you said, that neither my son nor any of the gifts I sent to him would ever be able to find a way out.

Fourteen years only have passed since our twentieth century began. In those fourteen years how many a father's and mother's heart has bled for the death of gallant sons, greatly-promising, greatly-daring, who have sought to rule the skies? With wings not well enough tried, they have soared dauntlessly aloft, only to add more names to the tragic list of those whose lives have been sacrificed in order that the groping hands of science may become sure, so that in time the sons of men may sail through the heavens as fearlessly as their fathers sailed through the seas. High overhead we watch the monoplane, the great, swooping thing, like a monster black-winged bird, and our minds travel back to the story of Icarus, who died so many years ago that there are those who say that his story is but a foolish fable, an idle myth. Not only as an architect was he great, but as a sculptor he had the creative power, not only to make men and women and animals that looked alive, but to cause them to move and to be, to all appearances, endowed with life. To his nephew, Talus, or Perdrix, he taught all that he himself knew of all the mechanical arts. As he walked by the seashore, the lad picked up the spine of a fish, and, having pondered its possibilities, he took it home, imitated it in iron, and so invented the saw.
