Man I'm sorry everyone's being super dumb and cissexist. I got that post first thing when I read it. I'm a trans lesbian and lemme tell you the struggle of trying to find a sapphic girl who's willing to date me. You wouldn't believe how many people have told me "it's not gay if there's a dick involved". People are frickin dumb.

Right? It’s not fun. Hell, I’m not even particularly interested in dating, much less sex, but it kinda sucks to think that it’s mostly off the plate if I were. The effort of finding someone who might be interested is too great to bother with if it’s not a top priority.

I’m so dang proud of Kevin because this boy, who has been terrified of Riko basically most of his life, got a tattoo to destroy the physical evidence of Riko’s hold on him and he just stands there and faces Riko down in front of stadium view of people and keeps his cool???

And can you even imagINE HOW PROUD WYMACK IS OF HIM??

Growing up in Norway, how was Thor and the other Norse gods introduced to you and integrated in your culture? Were they used as heroes/heroines in bedtime stories or was there a subjected dedicated to them in school? Are there disputes with other Scandinavians countries as to where these gods originated? How does the norse mythology apply to modern times? Do you have expressions like "oh my odin" etc. do you have present traditions that celebrate them as well as vikings? These are a lot thanks:D

Hey there! <3 (im gonna use the norwegian names for the norse gods here so thor will be tor and freyja will be frøya etc. - just a heads up)

This would vary a lot from person to person, and I can only talk about my own personal experiences - that being said, while a few people still practice the old “Norse religion”, they’re very very very uncommon to come across (the norse mythology is quite faded just like, say, greek mythology etc.). A lot of it disappeared when Christianity was introduced and Norse religion became practically illegal - you weren’t even allowed to name your children “Norse names” anymore (though that’s legal again now, of course).

That being said, everyone learns about Vikings and Norse gods/mythology as a part of the curriculum in school these days (or at least back when I went to school, which is only a few years ago so I’m assuming it’s still the same). How much you learn, however, all depends on your teacher and school. Some teachers are more invested in Viking history and the Norse gods and, consequently, they teach their students more about it. My teacher was one of them - he taught us to read and write ᚠᚢᚦᚨᚱᚲ (”futhark”, or Scadinavian runes, if you will) - though you never really use it (unless you decide to study it at a later date, I guess), so the majority of my classmates no longer remember it at all. In high school we occasionally had to translate sentences from Norse to modern Norwegian, though those usually weren’t written with runes. 

Personally, I’ve always been told stories about Norse gods and Scandinavian fairy tales from a young age. Whenever we saw lightning or heard thunder, my mom would tell me “Tor er ute og rir vognen sin med bukkene sine” (”Thor is out and riding his cart with his goats”) - which is how legend says thunder and lightning is created (thunder is the sound of the goats’ hooves, lightning is the sparks from Mjølner when Tor swings it around). 

The most popular story about Norse gods when I was a kid was probably the story about Balder. Besides that, common fairy tales such as Askeladden were very well known (and still are) - and some people say he’s based off of Loke, though the stories themselves never really mention Norse gods. There are a lot of trolls, though! Some fairy tales are pretty grim - seeing as trolls tend to, you know, eat people - I remember my favorite being “Gutten som kappåt med trollet” - where Askeladden tricks a troll into stabbing itself to death - IT SOUNDS SO MORBID NOW but idk it was just a regular fairy tale back in the days)

There are a lot of other common fairy tales and creatures that were very popular when we were kids (I used to loooove Huldra and we were all terrified of Draugen and Nøkken omfg - though not really trolls bc trolls are pretty…frickin’ dumb….)

I remember being pretty salty about the Marvel’s “Thor” movie because it’s so so so wrong oh my god - but I eventually realized that it’s simply based off of the Norse gods and not an actual representation of it - though, you know, they could’ve done a little bit of a better job (they named Loke’s father “Lauvøy” (“Laufey”)….which is actually….the name of Loke’s mother….??? why?????????? also they portray Odin as such a douche - I will forever stand by the fact that “Gandalf” is the most accurate portrayal of Odin in modern times (yes, Gandalf is actually based off of Odin!))

Other than that a lot of Norwegian (and Scandinavian) names are based off of Norse names or the Norse language - my own name is derived from Norse and actually means “The Strife of the Elves” - and names like Tor and Siv are extremely common (you’ll also find people named Odin, Nanna, Frøya, etc). 

As for traditions and expressions - if you have a farm (which a surprisingly large amount of Norwegians do), it’s common to leave a bowl of Risengrynsgrøt (porridge made out of rice and milk - very common around Jul/Christmas) for the nisse as a form of blót so that the nisse won’t wreak havoc inside your farm. Also, Christmas itself is called “Jul” in Norwegian, which is actually one of the many names of Odin - so you could say that “God Jul” is a Norse expression and that Jul/Christmas is celebrated due to the winter solstice- however most people still think of it as a Christian holiday (even though the majority of Norwegians are non-religious).

God there is SOOooOooooO much more to talk about but I feel like this post is getting way too long already lmao - sorry for rambling for so long!!!!!! <3 I’m getting way too nostalgic for my own good

Oh m y god? This is impossible?? I never imagined any blog of mine would hit such a number of followers and I’m honestly freaking o ut

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR ALL OF THIS SUPPORT. When I first made this blog 3-4 months ago, I thought it’d go horribly. I was so sure that people wouldn’t like my designs or my interpretation of these two dorks and this blog would die out in a few weeks tops.

But now, here we are, 3-4 months later and all of you guys are here and you all support this blog and its headcanons and story and honestly, this has moved me in a way I’ve never felt before. It’s hard to believe 100 people care so much about something I created, let alone 4000. I’m actually getting super emotional as I type this– omg my eyes are literally burning with tears–

Thank you all so, so very much! We love you and appreciate every single one of you for being here at all and having the interest of reading our stories.

Anyway, as a celebration for this wonderful surprise, I’d like to invite every single one of you to a fun little event!

My brother and I decided we’d get back together for another round of Undertale to celebrate what we experienced together when we bought this game for the first time! Come join us as we take a stroll down memory lane through the Underground and enjoy the Pacifist story once more! The goal of this playthrough is to have fun and not die a single time! (which I’m sure we can do… maybe… who knows)

Information on the stream below!

Where: Taidatenshi Picarto Stream

When: Friday, September 30th at 3pm (PST) / 6pm (EST)

I hope you all enjoy! I can’t thank you guys enough for being here and I hope we can continue enjoying our time together and having a good time on this blog! <3

Tomorrow marks the start of finals week so I’m bringing my Naruto omamoris for some good luck. Finals, here I come!!!!

“Do It For the Vine Video”
Summary: In which Soul and Maka are YouTubers and make an extremely bad decision for the sake of a video. Hilarity ensues.
Pseudo-sequel to this fic I wrote a couple weeks ago. (Nah, you don’t have to read it to understand this one, but it’ll probably help.)

The worst thing about dating her best friend, Maka thought, was that he always knew how to get what he wanted.

Soul had figured out a system. He’d ask to copy her math homework while nuzzling the sensitive hollow where her neck met her shoulder, nibbling at it until she wasn’t even sure what she was agreeing to anymore. He knew when she was in a good mood based on trivialities, tiny quirks in her expression. He knew she was lousy in the morning until she’d ingested enough caffeine to kill some small animals. He knew not to bother her while she was editing a video, because the software made her cranky.

(She knew him, too, inside and out, and she wasn’t afraid to use that knowledge either, but it was still an irksome concept. She couldn’t figure out whether it made their relationship easier or more complicated.)

“Come on, Maka. Please?”

Right now, Soul had opted for the overly-affectionate plan of attack. They were walking home from school, their hands clasped between them, and he kept rubbing his thumb on her skin in slow circles.

The feeling was heady, and distracting, and made her want to hit him with her bio textbook.
