http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eroshttp://www.paleothea.com/myths/psyche.htmlhttp://www.paleothea.com/myths/psyche.html

why they are my faveorite:eros and physche are my favorite because it reminds me of the movie beauty and the beast. like the the way the house does stuff for her with out real people and the way that he doesnt like to be seen in the beginning. the way that she didnt choose to marry him in the first place but they ended up falling in love. significance/importance:their significance is that eros aka cupid is the reason everyone falls in love which according to him makes the world work because without love there is no reason to do anything. the fish sink to the bottoms of the lakes and the fishermen dont even try to fish. babies stop being born and people become angry and mean.. where he has been used:eros had been used in many movies and tv shows, books, and art. beauty and the beast was based off this story and cupid is the symbol, besides the heart, of valentines day.

once there was a girl named psyche who was the most beautiful of her 3 sisters. aphrodite, the god of love, was jealous of her because she was so beautiful.. so she got her son eros to prick her with an arrow that makes her fall in love with the first person she sees. depending on the story you read, aphrodite either wanted her to fall in love with the castle dwarf, 102 year old gardener, or a donkey. when eros went to prick her though, he accidentally pricked himself and then fell madly in love with her. when eros told his mother, she got furious and locked phyche in her castle with thorns so no one could get to her. but eros refused to make anyone fall in love with eachother until he could have psyche so he got her. when she got to the castle everything moved magically, dinner being placed in front of her everynight by an invisible waiter and so on. every night at midnight eros would comme to her, but he would be invisibe as well and even though psyche loved him too, all she wanted was to see him., but all he said was ''soon, iys not yet time.'' one day her sisters came to visit her and said horrible things to her, like he was a monster that would eat her and that he had pricesses in castles all over the land, and that is why he only comes at midnight. so that nigt she shone a light on him while he wa nas sleeping, but some oil dripped on him and he woke up. he said,''wretched girl, you are not ready to accept love. yes, i am love itself and i cannot live where i am not believed. farewell phyche.'' from that day on she searches the woods for him. some say she turned into an owl and cries ''who...who...'' at night.others say she was turned into a bat that haunts old ruins and sees only by night.others say her husband finally forgave her and took her to olympus where they work together to make young love.
