Title: To Ride the Lightning
Author: [livejournal.com profile] oneiriad 
Fandom: Supernatural
A/N: [livejournal.com profile] piratepurple asked me in a prompt to write Gabriel and Loki's first meeting. This is a slightly modified and expanded version of what I originally wrote for her.
 


"Don't go near it," says B├Żleistr. )


So, I stumbled across yet another of those articles about how some so-called fans are bitching about the casting of Idris Elba as Heimdal, and I'm just - seriously, people. This is movie with a blond Thor, not a goat in sight, and where Loki's mother has been mysteriously and inexplicably genderswitched into the king of the jotun (which has lead me to cheerfully assume that Marvel's jotun are all hermaphrodites and Loki is going to get a surprise one of these days, but nevermind). So, when people only bitch about how Mr. Elba doesn't fit the original mythology, it's kind of telling. Just saying.

That said, I rolled my eyes as much as any girl while watching the movie - but then, most modern fiction involving Norse myth involve revisions or sheer idiotic changes - I'm still scarred from Jul i Valhal with Loki calling Hel "auntie"... And then there's the things nobody ever remember, like if you're using Snorri, you should really be casting Greek or Turkish actors, as he claimed that the Aesir where the descendants of Trojan refugees. For instance. Consequently.

I've got a challenge for you. Point me to a modern canon involving Norse myth that remembers (or at least handwaves the absence of) Thor's stone and you can have a prompt. If you can't find a such, if you can (without googling or other forms of cheating) tell me what I mean with Thor's stone, you can also have a prompt, but it must have something to do with Norse myth - a crossover, perhaps.

Any takers?

"Gabriel, why is the television showing - what is that, people in fancy dress in some church?"
"Shut up, Sammy, they're almost at the good part."
"It's Sam - and why are we watching - what is that anyway? Is that babies?"
"Important babies. My niece and nephew."
"Your...?"
"Well, adopted. And a few generations of greats on top, but yeah."
"Adopted?"
"Yes, adopted. And if I miss the names because you won't shut your cakehole, I'm gonna make you speak in iambic pentameter for a month."
"Shutting up, shutting up"

Brought to you by the fact, that the mythical first king of Denmark was supposed to be a son of Odin's and that, if people like Snorri and Saxo are to be trusted, the modern royals are more or less direct decendants... and since Gabriel is somehow or other supposed to be Loki and Loki was Odin's adopted brother...

And I still think they should name the boy Elvis :-)

There's something warm and wet on his face, and it's filling Sam's dreams with blood. )
Something occured to me.

Now, in the beginning the mists became Ymer, right, and after he got done having the world's kinkiest foot-sex, he got killed by Odin + brothers. Then, they made the world out of his dead body, turning his hair into the trees and forests.

Now, fast forward - Odin and a couple of other Aesir are out walking, find a couple of fallen trees, carve in them a bit and give them life - the first humans, ladies and gentlemen, Ask and Embla. (And even later Heimdal stops by, creating class society by way of three times threesomes (somehow avoiding getting splinters anywhere because that would be too embarrasing), because it's that sort of mythology, but nevermind).

Only. Ymer was the first jotun and his various bodyparts were independently capable of producing baby jotuns. The first humans were made out of his hair. So.

Does that mean humans are really just a subtype of jotun? (In which case, I want my shapeshifter powers! And my jetpack! ;-))

The idea of Loki-as-Gabriel's vessel is definitely growing on me. I keep coming up with reasons why it makes sense. Today, for instance, it occurred to me, that if Loki is busily running around, in control of himself or not, but certainly not chained under an acid-salivating serpent, it would be a convenient supernatural explanation for the relative mildness of seismic activity in most of modern-day Scandinavia. Of course, if some nasty villain decided to chain the guy back up, maybe with Gabriel inside, it might just get whatever hunter community northern Europe can lay claim to in the Supernatural verse off their arses to free him, simply to stop the sudden, unexpected, nasty earthquakes - and considering that an archangel would be adding sheer power to the thrashing...

I wonder what a Danish hunter would hunt. Nøkker? The odd bækhest? Maybe a gravso or a helhest? (although they better stay away from the trolls on Bornholm or the tourism and ice cream industry will have some choice words for them :-)
According to Norse myth, Loki is the son of Fabaurti and Laufey. Now, I've come across several references (although I can't seem to find a specific origin for them in the eddas, although I haven't so far looked very hard) saying that this involved Fabaurti throwing a lightning at Laufey. Now consider this: there is another character in Norse myth who usually throws lightning around. Of course, imagining Thor as Loki's father wouldn't actually make the Asa gods any more screwed up than they already are...

And that's what happens when I stay up too late.

So, Christmas Eve has come and gone. It was nice. Good food, family, hygge - quite nice. Also nice presents - I got some dvds, a new telephone and a toaster, among other things. Also, my gifts were well-received, so all in all, it was good.

Also, look: someone wrote me a yuletide story. A Promise Made is a Promise Kept. I asked for Norse Mythology - Loki playing with the recently created humans and got this sweet little story about Loki saving a peasant boy from trolls. It kind of reminds me of an old Faroese ballad, Loka Táttur, where Loki also gets to save a peasant boy, although the plot is completely different. Still, it's nice to see a story where Loki isn't stuck playing the villain, unlike far too many tales I could mention. Even if I suspect it didn't go through a beta... nevermind.

Now I just hope my recipient likes the story I wrote. *fingers crossed*

 Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!  Oh yeah, and I caught a Christmas egg. It kind of looks like a piece of candy, doesn't it? :-)
