The First Law of Mytho-dynamics

When Pan saved Nature from Typhon's attack.
When a Harpy fell in love with one of her victims.
When a man gave Arachne a rose.
When Ares fought against an elephant.
When the Minotaur looked at the King, his 'father.'
When Atlas helped a black girl.
When Hera bred the Hydra.
When Hades was in the "womb."
When Triton saw a girl committing suicide.
When Persephone preferred hell.
When Poseidon met a rival.
