@mythonetwork: event 3: favorite locations: the nine worlds

There are nine worlds in Norse Mythology, they are called Asgard, Alfheim, Svartalfheim, Midgard, Jotunheim, Vanaheim, Niflheim, Muspelheim,  Helheim. The nine worlds in Norse mythology are held in the branches and roots of the world tree Yggdrasil. These realms are the home of different kind of beings, like the home of the Gods and Goddesses or giants.

Every time you say her beauty is only beauty because she is broken, her mournful is her pretty, how the right man will fix her, she bares her teeth. She summons Athena from the marrow of her bones, she calls upon Artemis and her wolves to sharpen her claws, she brings out Nemesis in her eyes, a determination so powerful it could turn the sky storm black, and then she looks at you and asks, “Do you really think I need a man to fix me when the Goddesses have my back?”
—  Nikita Gill, If You Romanticise My Broken, My Broken Will Bite Back.

What does he care for the logic of kings?
The laws of your underworld?
It is only for love that he sings!
He sings for the love of a girl!

moodboard: caer ibormeith

Caer Ibormeith is the celtic goddess of dreams and prophecy. Caer Ibormeith was a daughter of Prince Ethal Anbuail of Sid Uamuin in Connacht. In Óengus’s dream, which lasted over a year, Caer Ibormeith stood beside his bed though when he reached out for her, she would disappear. Every alternate Samhain she would turn to human form for one celtic day, which begins at sunset, and after that, she would revert into being a swan, in which form she would remain for a year before becoming human again the following Samhain. Óengus went in search for this girl in his dreams at the lake of the Dragon’s Mouth and found 150 girls chained in pairs, his girl Caer Ibormeith, among them. Óengus was told he could marry Caer if he could identify her in her swan form, he chose correctly and with that Óengus turned himself into a swan and they flew away together, the pair sung beautiful music as they went, that put all listeners throughout Ireland asleep for three days and nights.
