If Dirk Strider ever had a cat it would be the most skittish elusive animal on the face of the planet and he would consider it to be more like a roommate than a pet like Nah he’s not my cat. He’s his own cat. And his name is Notorious C.A.T or the alternative Kitty Smalls. I don’t own him. I kinda just feed him and he hangs out in my apartment I guess. 

Every once in a while Dirk will see him while he’s eating and when eye contact is made, Dirk gives a slight solemn nod in acknowledgement before Kitty Smalls SPRINTS out of the kitchen at full speed to hide under the couch. It’s a special bond they share.

Part of why I enjoy Dirk and Jane’s friendship is the fact that I headcanon him to be about a full foot taller than her and the thought of seeing a baby giraffe crammed into the skin of an manime cool guy having coffee with an actual toasted marshmallow of a tiny buck toothed woman brings me so much joy.

Not to mention she 100% makes him get single espressos because Dirk holding the tiny cup is so absurd it makes Jane lose her shit every time.

vvitchez  asked:

Hi! I have been attwmpting to reach out to Freyja to devote myself to her. I have made charm bags full of catnip, elder flowers, sunstone, rose quartz, and citrine in a golden bag, talked to her about perhaps accepting me as her devotee, but I have received no signs that she reciprocated my desire. Any advice for me on how to be in her good graces?

Hey, I’m happy to give whatever advice I can!

There is a lot I am probably going to say about this.

First off, Freyja is a very approachable, extroverted deity. She deeply cares about people and is willing to talk to essentially anyone. I think that Freyja is one of the kindest goddesses you could ever find. She more than deserves her status as Lady of the gods. I think you should be able to build a close connection to her, but more on that later.

It’s important to understand the full scope of Freyja’s attributions. Modern day humans have done a lot to declaw and simplify her in popular representations. Some of the most famous myths with Freyja in them portray her as a passive figure to be coveted for her beauty – what with various figures repeatedly asking for her hand in marriage as a ransom or wager – and though it’s true she’s a goddess of beauty, she is also a goddess of sexuality, material wealth, magic, war, and death. That’s a lot of stuff! (And not even a complete list.)

Historical evidence shows us that she is a goddess of familial wealth, as well as of commerce. She is associated with fine things, riches, and aesthetic beauty. This is so much the case that there are even stories about male rulers in pre-Christian Scandinavia incorporating her name into theirs, in order to show devotion to her. For those who devote themselves to her, she will preside over birth, love, marriage, family, and death. She is present from the beginning to the end. She is called upon by lovers seeking to weave words into poems, and those seeking to weave words into magic. In the myths, people want to sleep with her because it is literally a divine experience. As a goddess of war, she picks people from half of all slain in battle to live in her hall, and in accordance with that, people die and kill for her. She even taught Odin much of the insane magic for which he’s famous.

Now here is my personal experience with her, and devoting myself to her. This is part bullet point list, part story. Hopefully some of the information will be useful:

  • I was able to get a preliminary connection with her almost immediately, but in order to advance further than that, I had to abandon all hesitation and fully throw myself into the idea of worshiping her. I believe that having confidence in your desire to build a relationship with Freyja is key to making it happen.  
  • My altar is built half around aesthetics and half around objects of personal significance. Freyja, being a goddess of material and aesthetic beauty, will appreciate an altar that you put a lot of work into making look pretty. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to have expensive things, though. My altar is pretty… minimal due to my small budget, but it works well enough. I have a honey and tobacco leaf candle (two scents I heavily associate with her), some other candles, a stuffed toy cat, and I keep my Freyja necklace  there while I’m not wearing it.
  • Actually, speaking of that necklace, it has been one of my favorite objects since I bought it, and it’s been the most important in my worship. Here is a link to the necklace, and you can also find pictures of me wearing it in my “my face” tag. I believe having iconography you love is very important.
  • I have three common offerings: food, alcohol, and blood
    • I’ve found that Freyja enjoys rich foods and foods that you offer because you greatly value them. I’ve given her chocolate cake, homemade rump roast steak, homemade scones, my favorite pizza, and things like that. I usually offer her the food at her altar, meditate for a moment to tell her it is there, and then leave for a while. I come back between 30 minutes and an hour later to sit down, eat the food myself and talk to her.
    • I don’t know if there is an alcohol that Freyja explicitly dislikes, but again, she seems to have the deepest appreciation for fine things. I’ve gotten drunk with her a few times. It’s always helped significantly with communication and meditation.
    • Blood is a very effective and important offering. Freyja is a goddess of war and magic, violent and powerful. If I need assistance, protection, or courage, I spill my blood for her. For example, last night I went into the woods for magical purposes. I felt like I would need protection, and after all, the forest is a very magical place. I knew Freyja could and would help, so I removed my pendant, heated it some above a candle while calling to her, sliced my calf open, and covered the pendant in my blood before tying it back around my neck.
  • Do normal things in her name. Freyja may be known for a specific set of things, but if you are her devotee, then she is a part of your whole life in general. I personally believe that as a devotee, when I’m out doing things in the world, I am a representative for her. Over time, this consistent devotion has done a lot to build my relationship with her. (Important: if you decide this is how you want to devote yourself, do not be weird about it. Like don’t be that one creepy religious person who brings up their faith in inappropriate situations. Just don’t.)
  • Lastly: have fun! Ultimately, Freyja is a goddess who cares a lot about rewarding and helping her followers. She is a just, kind Lady and commands accordingly. Your relationship with her is going to be unique because it is a very personal thing. Take your time and find what works best between you two! If you are worshiping Freyja primarily as a goddess of beauty and love, then plan your offerings and iconography around that; if you are worshiping her primarily as a goddess of magic, tailor your practice around that; etc. etc. You get the idea.

Any other questions? I wish you luck in finding her soon

Feel free to talk to me about about her any time. This goes for everybody!

Headcanon that Dirk films himself working out so he can observe his form and where he needs to improve and John finds out about that shit and takes it upon himself to remind Dirk every single day of his life that it’s fucking weird to watch videos of himself doing burpees and nod in silent approval of his own athleticism
