To the people who are convinced that Loki was humiliated or tortured in prison, and that THAT is why Loki wanted to knife the running guard in the back, I might mention that that guards seemed to treat Loki with the derence due to a prince, and Loki returned that respect in kind.
I thought it was made fairly clear that he was given the respect due him as a prince while in prison. His interaction with the guards seemed very much business as usual in many ways.
Knifing the enemy is the back would have been business as usual also — enemies deserve no mercy, and he has less reason than ever before to consider the power structure of Asgard as his enemy. I don’t think he needs much in the way of invented insults and injuries to make him think that way.
Christ, the last four years have been kind to Athelstan.
I don’t like that heels are considered some sort of uberfemale, power-woman, girl power symbol. Like, bitch, please, those fucking things were invented by a Frenchman with an inferiority complex and they make my ass hurt.
You wanna talk about your feminism, I wanna talk about my femininity. I can…
Heels look fundamentally bizarre to me, almost like they are designed specifically to hobble women. Aside from the basic ability to walk being screwed, they can do horrible things to your back.
I’ve broken bones in both feet over the last couple of years, and the good part of that is that I can’t ever wear heels again. Such a pity.
One of my favorite things about bellydancing was the fact that it’s mostly done in flat, because heels limit the range of motion so much. It was a happy moment to realize there was no reason I couldn’t try it myself.
As the History Channel’s first foray into scripted TV drama, Vikings follows semi-mythological Norse hero Ragnar Lothbrok as he brawls with other burly Viking dudes, smirks at his awesome shieldmaiden wife, and kidnaps lithe young monks from English monasteries.
With a dynamite premise like that, it’s no surprise that Vikings became super popular within seconds of its first episode airing last year. It basically typifies the History Channel ethos of being ~kind of~ educational, but ending up as slightly trashy yet super addictive entertainment TV.
The four main components of Vikings are:
1) Muddy battle scenes where the frame rate is slowed down so much that it’s like watching a slideshow of hunky Nordic men grappling with each other.
2) Random detours into an undergraduate lecture on Norse mythology.
3) Awesome and completely made-up punk Viking hairstyles.
4) A three-way marriage between two hot, muscular Vikings and their Christian slave.
We’ll give you one guess as to which of these points inspired Vikings’ Tumblr fandom.
Our little fandom is growing up!!
Today I figured out that the ipad tumblr app basically never shows me if I have any asks. Yay.
Sorry if I’ve been ignoring you, because I really haven’t. I’m just not tumblr-enabled.

It definitely will. I’m stuck in the middle of a chapter, but I am still working on it. I have 2-3 more chapters planned.
I had a low point with the fandom for awhile there, but I got better.
I won’t give a date for the next chapter because I will inevitably miss the deadline, but I love those characters and I really like my own fic, so I have no plans for abandoning it!
Sorry I’m so slow.
