EOW 159: The Symplegades - (Winner: kingkostas)
Topic = The Symplegades
suggested by Misplacedhippos
This should be done in any time/setting period except Ancient Greece. You don't have to use actual rocks, but something that represents them. Same with the ship/dove. But you should represent all those elements. Think of the elements of this concept: the rocks, a dove, and the Argonaut's ship as symbolic items. If you choose, you can create your own reinterpretation of 'The Symplegades' but this week's contest is also subject to your own creative version.
"The Symplegades, or Clashing Rocks, also known as the Cyanean Rocks, were, according to Greek mythology, a pair of rocks at the Bosphorus that clashed together randomly. They were defeated by Jason and the Argonauts, who would have been lost and killed by the rocks except for Phineas' advice. Jason let a dove fly between the rocks; it lost only its tail feathers. The Argonauts rowed mightily to get through and lost only part of the stern ornament. After that, the Symplegades stopped moving permanently."
Deadline: March 10

FINAL - futuristic take. White bullet train represents the dove, the highway with its futuristic cars the ship.
Story: In a time where mankind has long forgotten about thing such as presidents, oil and war, and logic can explain whatever's needed, one group of adventurers is about to find out there's quite a bit more to their world than they'd have ever thought.
