Norse Gods (And Other Deities) List

Having seen various incorrect, incomplete and inaccurate lists of Norse gods circulating Tumblr, I have decided to write my own and also include common terminology alongside. I will also include other beings who exist within the old lore and modern traditions.

I have opted to include the names in Norwegian, with translations in parenthesise after, along with a brief summary of some of the associations given to some of those gods.

Birthday Part 1 (Bucky x reader)

Good evening everyone! I hope you all enjoyed my smutty oneshot last night. It was a good night. So, this is going to be a two part piece. The second part is going to be smutty as fuckkk. I know I haven’t gotten to many requests lately, but I will be working on getting them out this week. I think I’ve finally worked my way out of this awkward writer’s block. Have a wonderful day everyone, xoxo

Masterlist

Description: You celebrate Bucky’s birthday by sending him on a scavenger hunt throughout the city, which ends in a big surprise. 

Warnings: None. Just cute fluff. 


“Mmm, good morning, babe.” Bucky rolled over to your side of the bed, outstretching his arm to wrap it around you. His arm fell onto the bed. You weren’t there, and the bed was empty. With his eyes still closed, he furrowed his eyebrows, confused. He was so used to having you next to him when he woke up, that he panicked, His beautiful, blue eyes shot open and he sat up in bed. His hands started feeling around the bed and his hand brushed up against thick paper. He looked down. It was a black envelope with his name written in gold on it. His worry washed away when he noticed it was your writing. He opened it carefully and took out the card. It read:

Good morning my love, and happy birthday. I bet you’re wondering why I’m not in bed with you right now. But, I assure you that I’m fine and that you will see me later. I’m sending you on a scavenger hunt for your birthday. ;) Your first stop is where we first met, and sit at our table. And don’t think about having breakfast here at the tower, just get dressed and go. 

All my love, 

F/N

He smiled down at the card and got out of bed. He instantly knew where he was going, how could he forget? His bare feet padded against the hard wood floor as he went to the bathroom. He checked the clock, 11:13am. He took a shower and dressed in a pair of jeans and a dark blue long sleeve. He debated whether he should put on his leather glove, but decided not to because he knew you would want him to be confident about his metal arm. He threw on a black baseball cap and went downstairs. Nobody was there, which was odd. There was never a time when nobody was inhabiting the kitchen or watching the news on the TV. But alas, there was nobody anywhere to be seen. He shrugged his shoulders and went outside towards the street. He walked the route that you always took when you visited the little place where you two had met. He stopped in front of a small, outdoor cafe. Each table was draped in a white table cloth with a small flower in a clear vase. Today’s flower was a yellow tulip. He scanned the scene and his gaze landed on “your table”, the table where you two met. There wasn’t a yellow tulip in the vase, but a red rose. He quietly smiled and walked over. When he sat down, a young waitress came up to him.

Things that Marvel needs to do in my opinion,

even if it’s not possible:


  • Black Widow movie. Either with Hawkeye (Budapest) or about hunting the Winter Soldier in the past. It can be a short movie, like half an hour to at least TELL US WHAT HAPPENED IN BUDAPEST. It’s been 4 years!
  • More movies with badass female leads. (I’m so thrilled for Captain Marvel).
  • No more whitewashing. I love Marvel but they honestly need to cast the right actors/actresses. Well at least as good as they can.  
  • Make their villains ‘better’. Loki and Wilson Fisk are the only villains who had enough backstory. They need to focuse more on the villains, not only on the hero’s.
  • Peter Quill meeting his grandpa if he’s still alive. 
  • Peter Quill visiting earth before Infinity War.
  • Peter Quills’s dad showed.
  • One last season of Agent Carter. There are questions left unanswered!
  • Loki, Wanda Maximoff and Doctor Strange meeting and having an awesome fighting scene. Either them fighting together and against each other. 
  • Doctor Strange, Tony Stark, Hank Pym and Bruce Banner having a conversation about clever-stuff. And maybe including Fitz-Simmons.
  • Coulson catching up with the avengers and Steve Rogers beeing happy that his greatest fan is alive. 
  • Happy comes back as Tony’s friend. 
  • Scott Lang and Steve Rogers having more conversations. 
  • May and Natasha and Gamora (and Jessica Jones) fighting together.
  • Peter Parker being friends with Wanda Maximoff because they are ‘the younglings’ and still kids. 
  • Daredevil and Captain America fighting together (I don’t know. I kinda want them together on screen).
  • Loki facing Thanos.
  • Loki staying alive. 
  • Loki showing off his tricks and fighting skills. 
  • Tony and Pepper getting back together.  
  • Steve/Bucky flashbacks.
  • Domestic!Steve Rogers and him being angry at the prices. 
  • Female Frost Giants (How do they even look like?).
  • Loki meeting his real mom.
  • Thor telling Odin that Odin was a bad parent and Loki being surprised about what his brother said. 
  • Loki accepting that Thor is his ‘brother’, but still being salty about everything. Him still doing mischief and staying true to himself but with less selfhate. 
  • Flashback of Thor and Loki’s childhood. With Frigga in it. And the Warriors three and Lady Sif.
  • The warriors three and Lady Sif helping Thor in Infinity War.
  • Steve wanting to use the time stone to travel back into the past to live with Peggy. 
  • Instead of dying in infinity war, Steve leaves the 21th century after infinity war and lives with Peggy. He’s never Captain America again and no one knows he’s alive. Bucky taking his place or Bucky coming with him.
  • The other Nine Realms being showed.
  • Peter Maximoff coming back to life just because. 
  • Luke Cage meeting Rhodey and Sam Wilson. 
  • Luke Cage and Jessica Jones getting back together.
  • Wanda keeping the Aether safe while Vision has the mind stone and Doctor Strange has the time stone.  
  • Stan Lee having many cameos because I love this man so much. 
  • Darcy and Doctor Selvig just being there.
  • Bruce Banner and Natasha Romanoff having a thing or breaking up for good. 
  • Clint Barton surviving everything because he’s a family man and his death would kill me. 
  • The inhumans fighting in Infinity War.
  • Baby Groot kicking ass.
  • Tony getting drunk with Rocket. 
  • The avengers visiting Asgard. 
  • Doctor Strange showing us different dimensions.
  • Original Wasp being found in a different dimension. 
  • Bucky Barnes leading with Steve (as best friends or lovers, you decide) a normal life after all the Thanos stress.
  • Avengers and X-men universe melt together or they meet. That’d be awesome.
  • DEADPOOL. 
  • Deadpool, Spiderman and Daredevil in one room.
  • Much more information about the Infinity Stones.
