While spoken of often in myth and legend historical accounts of Shield Maidens are fewer and more controversial. That said considering the Vikings rather progressive views on eqality, their existence is assured. More recent examinations done on Viking burial sites suggests that Warrior Women may have been even more critical to that culture then ever before imagined. Beyond extensive roles in combat, Viking women were also involved in the leadership of society. Viking women also hold great status within the culture as wise women and witches. Norse women were also able to both own property, and instigate a divorce.
Okay, so i’m not popular really at all on FanFiction, but I was asked to blog this anyways. My top five HTTYD FanFiction stories so far. :D
1. HTTYD Requested Short Stories : So far I’ve got twenty-some chapter/stories on this one. It’s my longest by far as well. It’s where people can request a one-shot, I write it, then post it on here. Go check it out, you might find some out of all the ones I’ve done that you like. :) But, like all my stories, there are some typos. My spell check stinks. XD It’s still ongoing, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
2. The Better Man :Summary-
Astrid’s parent’s think it’s time they get to know Snotlout and Hiccup better- her two possible suitors. So they invite the two over for supper, and find out who is the better man for their daughter. Astrid finds it unnecessary though- because she already has a good idea on who she wants to court! Hiccstrid. Complete.
3. Changes : Summary-
Astrid comes back from a month long fishing trip with her father, and sees how much Hiccup has changed. Hiccstrid. Rated K. No swearing. Complete.
4. Getting to know his mother : Summary-
Valka smiled and took the girls hand, “Do you love him, lass?” “Yes. I-I do love him.” With all my heart. Short one-shot where Valka and Astrid meet after the battle with Drago, and Astrid’s worried about Hiccup. Rated K. Hiccstrid. No swearing. Complete.
5. Explaining the Leg Thing :Summary-
“I cannot help but wonder…” Valka started, letting her eyes fall onto his leg. “Oh. Yeah. My leg.” One-shot where Hiccup explains to Valka what happened to his leg. Rated K . Mother/Son bonding. Complete.
There you go, my top 5 FanFiction stories! I personally don’t think these are at all my best… like, NOT AT ALL, but you guys seem to think so. :D My personal fav is One-legged Vikings can’t skate. That’s still my favorite. :D
I was very curious from the beginning how they would portray Irene Adler “THE WOMAN” in the modern BBC adaption and i was not dissapointed. Lara Pulver and Benedict Cumberbatch have an amazing chemistry and the dialogue and story from Mark Gatiss and Stephen Moffat is superb. As a shipper i think It’s such a shame that their story took a backseat these last 2 seasons, but even the rabid fangirl in me can accept that Sherlock is a show about two guys fighting crime from their untidy flat in central London. And that’s fine in my opinion because we will always have fanfiction and headcanons.
Brienne of Tarth and Jaime Lannister in ASOIAF/GOT
a.k.a. The Beauty and The Beast
I mean, how could i not ship them?
They are a trope turned on his head in the best freaking way possible!
They start out absolutely not trusting and understanding eachother and end up having this amazing respect for the other (and don’t even get me started on the UST!)
Game of Thrones has really botched a lot of Jaime’s as well as Brienne’s storylines imo but thank god for Gwendoline Christie and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau! They are immense fun to watch on screen, probably the biggest Jaime/Brienne supporters we have and whenever the writers once again deviate their storylines i simply zoneout into fanfiction-headzone ;)
Vanessa Ives and Ethan Chandler in Penny Dreadful
a.k.a. The Witch and The Werewolf
They are outcasts because of their terrible secrets and have seen the other at their absolutely worst and lowest points in their lives and still they decided to trust and respect eachother. Destiny (read that as THE WRITERS)dealt them a harsh hand but hey, at least we have fanfiction, amiright? (I’m beginning to sense a pattern here…)
Gisla and Rollo in Vikings
a.k.a. The Princess and The Bear
OMG the POTENTIAL was AMAZING!
The execution was flawed and apparently inconsequential in the long run, but hey at least we have fanfiction, amirite?
Jessica Jones and Luke Cage in Jessica Jones
a.k.a. The superstrong Woman and the unbreakable Man
Hey, they are basically made for eachother and i ship them since basically forever in comic universe.
Krysten Ritter and Mike Coulter chemistry is also off the charts and they made me quite an happy shipper in season 1 already, that’s quite an unprecedented feat.
Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes
As in “They are actually brothers and i absolutely love every second of interaction that i can see on my screen, even when they are not acting in a traditional BrOTP kinda way but often have a rather antagonistic behaviour. “
But the most important thing is, Mycroft clearly wants to protect his brother at all cost and without going deep into spoiler-territory for those who still want to watch season 4, i will leave it at that…
Favourite fem. BrOTP
Jessica Jones and Trish Walker from Jessica Jones
They have eachothers back like nobody else and they certainly go the extra mile for eachother.
If you have seen Jessica Jones then you know exactly what i’m talking about!
If you haven’t :
Please give it a try!
Even if comics are really not your cup of tea! It’s really not your run-of-the-mill Marvel adaption.
Especially if you follow me for Vikings content and are kind of appalled by the treatment of female characters this season.
Trigger Warning though, it explores the issue of rape and it’s ramification on the human psyche quite extensivly (as in physical rape as well as mind-rape) if not in a graphic way (thank god i was still reeling from Outlander.)
Whoa, I’ve written quite the monologue, haven’t I?
Consider it an apology of sorts for my long absence
