…And what sort of sweaters have you been wearing? Mine are perfectly dignified. 

I will wear no sweaters, Broth … Loki. I have observed those crafted by Midgardian grandmothers and I am certain they conspire upon the most atrocious.

However, Darcy once provided me with a garment known as a ‘hoodie’, which has proven most useful.

Ah, so now we’re only arguing semantics. You will only wear the sweaters with the hoods. I see.

…Who is Darcy? The name sounds familiar. 


The Dark World

sigyn-goddess-of-constancy:

Thor crossed his arms, still glaring at his brother as he spoke. He glanced at his mother again, and then at Sigyn whose expression had softened somewhat. He knew she would still want Loki as far away from danger as possible in this, while still helping. Especially since she had seen first hand what Kurse could do.

"Do you trust him?" he asked her when Loki was finished. 

Sigyn shifted her gaze to Loki, giving him a long, hard to read look before nodding. “In this, yes.” 

Thor nodded. Not exactly the answer most people would have been satisfied with, but it would suffice. “Fine,” he said to Loki. “What is this plan of yours?”

Do you trust him?’ Ha! As if you have ever had good judgment. Loki nearly shook his head. Thor always trusted too easily where he should not, and never knew when to trust when it was good for him.

Loki looked to his mother again, encouraged by her nod, even if she was frowning slightly. She knew of the other path from Asgard, of course—and how very unlikely it was that Thor would ever be able to find it on his own.

"Well," he said carefully, "there is a path that will take us to Svartalfheim without me needing to walk through Yggdrasil myself, and does not involve the Bifrost. Unfortunately, getting to it will be rather more difficult than normal, given that I am to be dragging you and your mortal with me…”

He paused, and grinned very evilly indeed. “How do you feel about commandeering a ship?”

That is a disturbing custom in any case.

It is, yes, though I thought you would have been fond of it. It seems the sort of foolish Midgardian thing you would find endearing. 

There are such things as the guards’ uniforms, though I find those less pleasing than I once did. Midgardian sweaters, however, do they not often sport clashing tones and badly represented domestic beasts? Hardly dignified.

Rules

In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

  1. The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
  2. Historia von D. Johann Fausten by Johann Spies
  3. Völsungasaga
  4. The Art of War by Sun Tzu
  5. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare
  6. The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe
  7. Die Traumdeutung by Sigmund Freud
  8. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
  9. Die Märchen der Brüder Grimm
  10. The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer

I am not sure about ‘being touched,’ but I suppose these examples of Midgardian literature have their uses.
