Juno, the Roman goddess of family, always struck us as a figure one could only appreciate from afar. Which is why we’re eternally grateful that she gave us a brief moment of her time to allow us to catch up with the Patron of all Women.
RR.COM: Juno, thank you so much for joining us today. Our readers are curious about your current affairs, seeing as we haven’t heard much from you lately.
JUNO: I have been busy with overseeing something I suppose you consider minor: the lives of every woman on the planet. You’ll excuse me if I don’t have the time to keep up with whatever mortal shenanigans Apollo is currently engaged in.
RR.COM: That’s right. Without any demigod children of your own, you probably don’t have much reason to visit the camps.
The Romans prefer to handle their affairs on the battlefield, not on the Internet.
JUNO: If any of them need a terrifying and ominous prophecy, I’m always on call. But I believe they already have access to plenty of those without my intervention. Besides, I have my hands full with my own godly children. Despite being thousands of years old, Mars and Vulcan still fight like juvenile brats when they’re in the same room together.
RR.COM: Last we saw, you were having a few issues sharing your form with your Greek counterpart, Hera.
JUNO: I respect all goddesses, regardless of their pantheon. Hera and I just choose to handle matters with very different strategies. It can be frustrating, but it’s manageable.
RR.COM: So, you don’t feel any lingering jealousy over the fact that she seems to get better press than you?
JUNO: I’m sorry, but is this interview about me, or is it about her?
RR.COM: Point taken. Let’s stick to you, Juno.
JUNO:Yes, let’s do that. The Romans prefer to handle their affairs on the battlefield, anyway . . . not on the internet. Speaking of exemplary Romans, where can I find that nice son of Jupiter whose life is indebted to me?
RR.COM: Jason? I’d hold off on that if I were you.
JUNO: And why is that?
RR.COM: You know what? You should probably find out for yourself.
