Ah, yes. Death. The great equalizer. The great unknown. The great premise for the ULTIMATE RESCUE STORY!

This is kind of a mythological variety pack, drawing on different cultures telling similar stories. I might be doing more of these later. Turns out recurring tropes in mythology are as crazy-common as they are in history! If you have a specific mythic archetype you want me to cover in a future video, don't hesitate drop me a comment.

Myth 1: 0:47
Myth 2: 3:04
Myth 3: 4:46
Myths 4 and 5: 5:46

SIDE NOTE: I know that "queer" is sometimes used as a slur. Bear in mind, it's also being reclaimed by the greater LGBTQIA+ community. I'm using it as the latter; a blanket term for a community. Feel free to be offended, but know that no offense was intended.

Hey, that rhymed!
