The Fall of Arachne:

Elements gathered around her coalescing into appendages, making eight prior to the transformation. She falls into a dream state at peace in the bed of dark water liberated from the awareness of the painful metamorphosis, a gift granted out of pity. Her cheeks and body, the last sign of a flesh pink, grew pale. Soon enough, she will forever live her life spinning and weaving, a grotesque reflection of her former beauty as one of the most proud and masterful weaver of Greece, only to cross path and insulted the goddess Athena in a weaving art contest. Transforming into the first spider by Athena, Arachne will both be cursed and live her passion doing what she does best.
