mythology meme → three locations [3/3] : the underworld

kingdom of hades and his stolen queen persephone. it is said that all souls go to the underworld after death, and that king hades is always eager to grow his kingdom. after death, a soul is rowed on the rivers styx and acheron by the ferryman charon, who trades passage for a coin (which was usually placed in the mouth or on the eyes of the deceased). most souls find life in the underworld to be nothing more than droll; a land of darkness, melancholy and hopelessness where they all wait to fade into nothingness. home to the cthonian gods/goddesses hades, persephone, cerberus, the moirai (clotho, lachesis, and atropos), the erinyes, charon, minos, cronus, hecate, hermes, hypnus, nyx, and thanatus. five main rivers running through are the styx, the acheron, the lethe, the phlegethon, and the cocytus. within the underworld laid the fields of punishment, where the wicked were punished ; the asphodel meadows, where the indifferent and unremarkable were sent; the elysian fields, where the righteous were sent to live free from labor and worries ; the isles of the blessed, within elysium, where the truly good and righteous were allowed to choose to be reborn (an option given up to three times, after which the soul was sent to eternal paradise) ; and, finally, underneath the underworld laid the tartarus, home of the titans and where the gods are excruciatingly punished.
