Kraken's myth-making project.:

You complete me.
Just back story and flavor etc. based on preexisting fictional Gods. Kinda like what you got here.
Hmmm no, I won't do it.

Sorry, but you've given me nothing to work on, and something as trivial as background characters should be an easy task for anyone.
 
You complete me.
Oh, I was under the assumption that you'd ask for more data if you want to, I can give you Bios origins and the like.
I'm just not sure why you don't want to do it yourself.
 
You complete me.
Well I thought it could be a colab, I like that kinda stuff.
Polite smartass.
All your dragon and phoenix stories sound pretty good, solid to the feel of mythology: a little weird, a little confusing, but also undeniably epic.

One concern though, not about the main discussion but the one-shot you started this thread with. With all due respect, it bears a lot of resemblance to the story of the genesis frog, or Bilious Slick, from the webcomic Homestuck. Don't take this as an accusation; your avatar implies you're aware of the series, but that doesn't mean you're intentionally emanating it. I'm just saying that you may want to alter the story a bit before making it a big project. Perhaps you could use a different animal? Or have multiple frog-gods instead of just the one? Again, I'm not trying to shoot you down; I think your writing sounds great and you certainly have potential as a storyteller.

I've returned from the depths to continue politely irritating the good people of TV Tropes.(◕‿◕✿)
The first story was a silly one-off that was indeed based off of Bilious Slick and was never meant to go anywhere or be part of any cycle.

But hmm, I suppose I could reinforce my ties to Native American tales by adding a toad to the story. I'll see about re-writing it. Thanks.

I don't get it, Kraken

I just don't get it
There are too many toasters in my chimney!
What don't you understand?

This is a ballad about the clash between a Demiurge-created demon and Pasaitrof, the Buddha of earth and tradition, based on the story of Vamana the dwarf, John Henry, and various other folk tales of cunning men tricking monsters.

I don't get anything of what you said
There are too many toasters in my chimney!
I guess I didn't make it clear that Big Engine was a demon train-serpent with a drill for a tail and Pasaitrof became a really small man.
 
Away on the wind~
No, I didn't get that at all :c
There are too many toasters in my chimney!
I guess I should avoid the more esoteric stories, then.

Or I should learn to read poetry, either way

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
