  1. 1. Psyche & Noah CalhounHero Journeys<br />To find your one true love you have to go through difficult tasks to find yourself first!<br />By: Melanie<br />
  2. 2. Home away from home<br />Psyche<br />Noah Calhoun<br />She was the youngest of three daughters<br />Known as The Goddess of Beauty in her village<br />
  3. 3. The Call<br />Psyche<br /><ul><li>After everyone in her village started praying for her instead of Aphrodite, Aphrodite went straight to the source and grabbed Eros instructing him to make poor Psyche fall in love with the ugliest man on Earth. </li></ul>Noah Calhoun<br /><ul><li>After meeting Allie Hamilton at a carnival, on the spot, Noah senses that he and Allie are meant to be together. </li></li></ul><li>Crossing The Threshold<br />Psyche<br />As Eros (Cupid) had went to fulfill his duty he was too stunned by her beauty that as he lay his golden arrow on her heart, he pricked himself and fell in love with her.<br />Noah Calhoun<br />Allie refused to go on a date with him so he made her --hanging on by his finger tips on a ferris wheel, she agrees on one date.<br />
  4. 4. Testsss<br />Psyche<br />Aphrodite noted Eros didn’t cast the spell so she did herself, for Psyche to fall in love with the beast of a mountain.<br /> &quot;Psyche will never marry a mortal. She shall be given to one who waits for her on yonder mountain; he overcomes Gods and men.&quot;<br />Noah Calhoun<br />Allies parents disapproved of him and sent her far away to college. Where she meets a handsome soldier named Lon..they get engaged.<br />
  5. 5. More Tests<br />Psyche<br />Mistaken for the beast, Eros hides his identity leaving her questioning who he is.<br />Accidently she sees him and he runs and she wasn’t about to give up on her love, literally.<br />“Go now to yonder grove where the sheep with the golden fleece are wont to browse. Bring me a golden lock from every one of them, or you must go your ways and never come back again.”<br />Told to descend to Persephone, the cold Queen of the Underworld, and bring back some of her beauty in a box .<br />Noah Calhoun<br />He wrote her letters after letters with no response .<br />Rebuilds the house they first made love in into her dream home.<br />She sees the house and immediately realizes she has to go back.. <br />Feelings for her come rushing back.<br />
  6. 6. Psyches Mentors<br />Zephyr, the west wind, guided her safely below the mountain.<br />“Voice” was Eros..her husband.<br />Demeter : saw the good in her soul. “Psyche, you are worthy of happiness, and you may yet have it. Go now to the temple of Aphrodite and pray for her forgiveness, perhaps she will reward your patience.”<br />The ants helped her sort through the mixed grain, beans and lentils.<br />
  7. 7. Noah&apos;s Mentors<br />
  8. 8. Climax<br />Psyche<br />Eros&apos;s identity is revealed and she was determined not to give up on the love they shared.<br />Noah Calhoun<br />Allie returns to Noah<br />They were right back to where they left off, not resisting their second chance.<br />
  9. 9. Ending<br />Psyche<br />She opens the box and falls unconscious. Eros finds her, woke her up and told her to return to Aphrodite and wait for him. <br />While she did so, Eros went to Olympus. He told the Gods his story, and begged them to appease to Aphrodite. she was no longer angry.<br />Hermes, the Messenger God, descended to Earth and brought Psyche back with him to Olympus.<br /> Once there, the gods bid Psyche to take the cup of ambrosia that Hebe held out to her. She took it, and upon drinking it blossomed into the fairest thing you&apos;ve ever seen.<br />Eros took her in his arms, and from that day on the two were never parted again.<br />Noah Calhoun<br />Noah spends all his years trying to help Allie remember him and their family… every night and day.. reading her their story.<br />The day she finally remembers, Noah senses something&apos;s wrong and sneaks to her room where they died hand in hand.<br />
  10. 10. Conclusion<br />Psyche and Noah both fought for their love. They were strong-minded not to give up on love and faced the tasks they were given with determination. <br />In both stories/tales, both couple end up together, hand in hand, never aparting.<br />
