clive_standen: Just as Rollo’s true agenda is hidden from all going in to season 4, it’s fitting that my new axe made by the crew at @thegrimfrost has Jormungandr (the Midgard serpent) carved into the axe head & shaft…The Midgard serpent is hidden beneath the seas until it lets go of its own tail & ultimately spells the end of the world!
No sun so far today, I finished her off under the umbrella listening to the pitter patter of raindrops. Kollrosed and oiled this Kuksa/Alehen is hand carved from Birch using Axe, knife and hook knife, now onto the next one… J
Ri Cruin Bronze Age Cairn, Kilmartin Glen, Argyll, Scotland, 15.4.17. This cairn contains two chambers. Image 2 contains contains the decentralised burial chamber whilst image 3 contains the examples of four axe heads carved into the side of the the chamber at the time of construction (one of the axeheads is largely obscured under the leaf litter). Like many of the other cairns in the Kilmartin area, the site has yielded several examples of pottery and other key artefacts.
So I had a long discussion with a friend one day and I went, with all the magical/supernatural shit happening in Gravity Falls you’d think there’d be a coven of witches overlooking the weird stuff. So I came up with this;
What if Mabel and Dipper were of-age witches sent to Gravity Falls for the summer to start their apprenticeship under Grunkle Stan, a grumpy enchanter. And Gravity Falls is weird enough that it has two Head Witches, mainly Pacifica (town witch) and Wendy (forest witch).
Basically I want more creepiness/fun factors that comes with being witches like stealing of names to control people, and demon contracts,and odd witch jobs, blood magic, heavy uses of salt for repellents, iron against faes, and wacky witch apprentice hijinks, etc. But mostly I want to see the cast dress like witches and battling horrors from beyond.
Also does anyone notice that Pacifica, Mabel, and Wendy fulfill the roles of Mother, Maiden, Crone (Hecate trio) in a sense? And Dipper, Soos, and Stan is kinda the male equivalent?
Loki and Baldr (Balder) from Kamigami no Asobi in “traditional” clothing (though Loki ended up being Druid-y but he’s really a seiðmaðr I suppose). We are adults and this shouldn’t be our obsession but now she owes me her Old High German copy of Ragnarsdrápa, so all is good.
I swear to god Balder just uses that axe to carve steaks.
