Please explain why American God's and mike/Briggs connection! I imagine Briggs is wednesday?
yesssss. because tbh the minute this chaotic neutral slytherin motherfucker named himself fucking odin i just went:
because i am ABOUT THAT SHIT, THAT SHIT IS MY FUCKING JAM FUCK. AND IT’S SUCH A GOOD NAME FOR HIM, IT’S SO GOOD. my character tag for him is literally an american gods reference (”
I told you I would tell you my names. This is what they call me. I’m called Glad-of-War, Grim, Raider, and Third. I am One-Eyed. I am called Highest, and True-Guesser. I am Grimnir, and I am the Hooded One. I am All-Father, and I am Gondlir Wand-Bearer. I have as many names as there are winds, as many titles as there are ways to die. My ravens are Huginn and Muninn, Thought and Memory; my wolves are Freki and Geri; my horse is the gallows.
“) bc i just want to eat my own legs over it honest ly
and with mike, i am always torn as to whether he is lowkey or shadow? because on one hand shadow would make sense especially now since briggs is pretty much trying to manipulate every aspect of mike’s life into a way it works for him while also being weirdly protective of him in some aspects (”You work for me now. You protect me. You transport me from place to place. You run errands. In an emergency, but only in an emergency, you hurt people who need to be hurt. In the unlikely event of my death, you will hold my vigil. And in return I shall make sure that your needs are adequately taken care of.”) plus mike is the one who recognizes he is smoke and mirrors and bullshit and actually can Stop Him while briggs is kind of impressed by it and they are kind of impressed by each other
plus with the shadow thing you kno. baldr. kind of works for mike now very fuckin’ well. including his struggle since s1 and his vissions after he died like fuckin hell just:
“All your questions can be answered, if that is what you want. But once you learn your answers, you can never unlearn them.
“Which path should I take?” he asked. “Which one is safe?” “Take one, and you cannot take the other,” she said. “But neither path is safe. Which way would you walk — the way of hardtruths or the way of fine lies?” “Truths,” he said. “I’ve come too far for more lies.”
but BUT on the other hand mike as low-key is also my jam because he is the one who can keep up with briggs. them doing a long con together would be fucking ruthless. if it came down o a situation where mike and briggs had to run cons together to survive, they’d have no problem. plus mike getting progressively more bitter esp given how much shit he’s been through and how little the fbi cares like just:
You got to understand the god thing. It’s not magic. It’s about being you, but the you that people believe in. It’s about being the concentrated, magnified, essence of you. It’s about becoming thunder, or the power of a running horse, or wisdom. You take all the belief and become bigger, cooler, more than human. You crystallize.” He paused. “And then one day they forget about you, and they don’t believe in you, and they don’t sacrifice, and they don’t care, and the next thing you know you’re running a three-card monte game on the corner of Broadway and Forty-third.
mostly that is the s3 we could have had if mike was on the run but AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH okay i’m done now
Cinderella. LOVE her. I used to dress like her when I was younger and this sounds terrible to my parents but I’d pretend I was her and I would scrub the floors and be in my room and be like, “I’m coming dad!”
