MYTHOLOGY MEME - [3/8] LEGENDARY CREATURES: JÖRMUNGANDR
In Norse mythology, Jörmungandr is a sea serpent, the middle child of the giantess Angrboða and the god Loki. According to the Prose Edda, Odin took Loki’s three children by Angrboða, the wolf Fenrir, Hel and Jörmungandr, and tossed Jörmungandr into the great ocean that encircles Midgard. The serpent grew so large that he was able to surround the earth and grasp his own tail. When he lets go, the world will end. (x)
Coup de poignard. Belongs to a-floating-submariner. Frostiron fanfiction project, pictures and idea. Tony and Loki meeting for “the first time” in Jotunheim.
Ho ho ho, another festive comic. :)
Tony: Ok. It was perfectly justified reaction. I come home after long day of world saving to find a giant snake on my couch and a huge, friggin’ wolf in my kitchen…
Loki: Some hero you are… You screamed like a girl.
Tony: Pardon m-
Loki: We found you huddled in Hawk’s nest on the roof *giggles*
[WARNING: this is not a happy ending D:]
I’ll write down the dialogue here incase it’s fuzzy.
Valki: Will you tell me a story?
Loki: Of course. What would you like to hear?
Loki: Alright, then, settle in. Once, there were 4 lonely children…
Valki: Why were they lonely?
Loki: Well, not everyone has someone to tuck them in at night.
Valki: They didn’t have a mommy or a daddy?
Loki: They had everything once. Until it slowly slipped away…
Valki: What happened to them?
Loki: Bad things. Irreversible things.
Valki: Didn’t somebody help them?
Loki: When you’re so young and so unloved, sometimes you let the world cast you out. Like you’ve waited for it without a chance.
Valki: Mommy, I’m sleepy.
Loki: Then rest your head, and no more stories.
Valki: Look, Mother! I drew this map, so we can find the lonely children, and rescue them…
OMG…so many FEELS!
Happy Halloween, everyone!
… And hopefully the grammar in this is correct.
(But let me know if anything is wrong.
Words are hard.)
Okay, so u know how, in Norse mythology one of Loki’s kids is a serpent? And how Odin cast it into midgard(earth)’s ocean, and how over time the snake grew so big that it wrapped around the earth to the point were it could bite it’s own tail?
Well then check this out…
BOOM!FOUND IT! see how its wrapped around the whole world!?
…but how would they have known about this, back then?

(Loki taught them a great game called hug-Uncle-Thor-until-he-can’t-feel-his-legs. They love it!)
