oh so when people at tumblr make shitposts about wanting to kiss the sun they’re being “funny” and “quirky” but if i do the same it’s “Betrayal of Messages”, “Undelivery of Words”, “Vile Breeding”, “Conspiracy in Darkness”, and “Unlicensed Love”
Did Mad Sweeney put the coin back in Laura because she didn't give it over willingly?
I’M GOING TO ANSWER THIS REAL QUICK BECAUSE THE LAST EPISODE OF AMERICAN GODS MEANT A LOT TO ME. it’s probably one of my favorite episodes of television that exists.
AHEAD LIES MAJOR AG SPOILERS FOR THE SHOW
what has happened in the show WAS NOT REVEALED IN THE BOOK
so we find out sweeney is the reason laura died. everything has been a setup for shadow up to this point. but this entire episode followed the old tale of a woman who he showed great mercy, and wild peril, towards. but in the end, he showed her the softest, kindest part of a leprechaun and saw her to the afterlife with a gentle hand. she was devoted until the end, and he recognized that with everything he was.
so finding out what wednesday had him do, the coin resonated and screamed to him, and while he could’ve taken it, he then yells to the skies in Old Irish:
Créd as co tarlaid an cac-sa dam?
Nach lór rofhulangas?
Is lór chena, ní am olc! Ní am!
which translates to:
What is it that has brought this shit to me? Is it not enough that I have suffered? It is enough indeed, I’m not evil! I’m not!
he brought laura back to life because he couldn’t give up who he is, which is, in the end
an inherently good being that gives back tenfold of what he receives, which is more often than not a few breadcrumbs from those who still believe in his magic ;n;

Usually swinging from building to building and doing flips around the city as Spider-Man cheered Peter up instantly after a long day at school. Usually it was all he could do to wait until 2:45 when the bell rang and he could run out to get his patrol snack. But when the bell rang that day, after perhaps the trillionth time “Penis Parker” had been chanted or passed along in stupid notes as if they weren’t in high school now, Peter walked out of the school feeling dejected and tired.
He didn’t feel like losing his backpack on top of everything, so since he wasn’t in a rush for once, he went back home.
“You’re home early,” May commented when he walked in the door. He shrugged and she followed him down the hall from the kitchen. “Hey, what’s up? What’s wrong?”
“Just a bad day,” he explained. He didn’t want to talk to May, not right then at least. Maybe when he got home after blowing off some steam, he would be more willing to open up. “I’m gonna go out if that’s okay.”
