Covers for "Eight Days of Luke" by Diana Wynne Jones (1975)

Classic children's fantasy book with Norse mythology themes. David is really lonely and angry one day and utters imaginary curses to harm his horrible relatives. Suddenly flames and snakes spring out of the crumbling ground, and a cheerful but strange boy called Luke appears and claims to have been let out of a terrible prison, which David doesn't believe at first. Chaos ensues as a lot of mysterious people start to appear, who are seriously pissed off & after Luke. TEXT

More about this book later. ♥♥

'The Truth' from Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki

"The Truth" from Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki by Kittyhawk

Sex: Male
Age: Uh, old
Affiliation: Who knows?
Job: God of Awesome (or so he says)
Likes: Smart Valkyries and confusion
Dislikes: Being chained to a rock under the earth with a snake dripping poison into his eyes 

Loki was a giant who was found by Odin and his brothers. Despite their hatred of giants, they thought he was awesome, so Odin made Loki a blood brother, thus making him one of the Aesir.

Currently Loki is chained under the earth with a snake dripping poison into his eyes because of the whole Balder incident. Loki's whole take on the incident was the that "the little snot had it coming to him." This defense didn't help him.

Loki is able to project himself into the body of a stuffed white cat, so he is able once again wander Midgard. The knife he carries is for "little children and dogs that have the stones to pick [him] up."

Loki really likes Yuuki. A good thing?

Thor & Loki off to Jotunheim

“Thor” (2009) by Birdtank Productions

Thor and Loki are best friends, and are forced to seek Thor’s stolen H.A.M.M.E.R. in this modern retelling (I use this word extremely loosely) of the Lay of Thrym. Here is a lovely screencap of them venturing off to Thrym’s lair. The short film is amateurish & pretty crap, to be honest (warning for cis-het-normativity), but if you’ve got 19 minutes to squander…

loki-in-myth:

Lokabrenna aka Sirius

The brightest star in the night sky, known to most as Sirius, was called “Lokabrenna” by the Nordic people.  The name meant “burning by Loki”, or “Loki’s torch”.

Always my favourite star (and the brightest), its cold blue light so high in the southern skies <3

"Loki" by Amy Mayr (2005)

I love this unconventional take in so many ways, including stitched mouth. Awe-inspiring and inhuman god.

The final myth of import in Saxo’s [Grammaticus] history does not involve Loki at all. It is a version of the death of Baldr in which Loki is not present. It entails a fight between Baldr and Hother (Hödr) over the maiden Nanna. Hother slays Baldr not with Mistletoe but with a magic sword won from a satyr. In this version Baldr is portrayed as wicked and dishonorable; Hother is noble, clever, valiant, and not blind as in Snorri’s [Prose Edda] version. Although the version is highly euhemerized [made into mortal ancient history], it does seem that Saxo is relating an alternative tradition in which Loki is not responsible for Baldr’s death. It may be that Saxo is relating a Danish version or it could mean that Snorri’s condemnation of Loki is not part of the original myth but a Christianized, dualistic addition.
