summary: Viking weddings are interesting, to say the least. || viking!bucky x viking!reader

warnings: WEDDING, mentions of sacrifice, mentions of blood, violence as a form of foreplay, loss of virginity, smut and all that entails

notes: Edit of Viking!Bucky is from @fandom-obsessed-girl. I asked her a while ago if I could use it as inspo and I just got around to writing it. It’s a yummy sight, isn’t it? While her’s is a short-haired version, I do envision our viking baby with long hair.

For @hynpos2 week myth event: Day 6: favorite norse deity pair/group➡ Loki & Sigyn

In norse mythology Loki, the god of mischief, was responsible for the murder of Balder, the favorite god in the Norse pantheon. As punishment, his son, Vali, was turned into a wolf by Odin and killed his brother, Narfi, whose entrails were then used to tie Loki to a stone, and a snake dripping poisonous venom was suspended over his face. Only his wife, Sigyn, was faithful enough to remain by him, holding a wooden bowl over his eyes to protect him from the venom. When Loki breaks free, the final battle, Ragnarok, will start, signifying the end of the world.
