In today's episode of "I Swear I'm Not Making Any of This Up," I have a story to tell about a ring. I've written before about the rings I wear to represent the oaths I've made with Loki. They're a constant presence on my finger, and they mean quite a lot to me for a … Continue reading A Gift for a Gift
If you're interested in my Big Thoughts about the idiot with the valknut and Mjolnir tattoos, check out my article on Patheos about it. I encourage you to read it primarily because a friend in the Northeast Heathen Community made a hugely important point about the bigger issue: the headdress that's being mocked as a … Continue reading About the Capitol Coup
Glad Yule! Today we find ourselves at the turning of the wheel, and thank the gods for that because I don't think we can take any more of the nonsense this year has brought. Case in point: let me tell you what happens when you let a Lokian into the kitchen. I tend to do … Continue reading Just Keep Stirring!
A month and a half 'til deadline, and I'm feeling eerily calm and confident about The Book. This can only mean one thing: DOOM. Granted, the doom isn't going to be missing my deadline. The first manuscript will absolutely be finished and submitted by 14 Jan. No, it's going to come when the editors at … Continue reading L̴̳̱͔̘͊͘o̴̜̰̠͍̩͒̑̈́͝k̷̢̲̘̄̔̑ḯ̷̢̲̦͍̈́͝ and Ö̴̜́͒d̶̩̗̜̔h̷̝̻̫̱̫̍̈́̈̆̕ǐ̶̡̞̜̹̿ǹ̷͖̬ň̵̨̫͎̰̇̿͆̈
Humor has always been my method of dealing with fear and trauma. Having grown up in an abusive household and dealing with terror almost daily, I'm pretty damn adept at diffusing tense or heavy situations with a bit of dry snark. My default reaction to anything stressful is to keep a level head and make … Continue reading Living the Dream One Nightmare at a Time
Today is the anniversary of my oaths and vows to Loki. I took the day off with the intention of doing something with intent and working on the book, but as usual, my body had other ideas. But Loki still came, and this day is still meaningful. I haven't been dedicated to him for long, … Continue reading 9/9
ECT 2020 may be a virtual event this year on account of, well, 2020, but that doesn't mean that fuckery isn't afoot. Tonight was the Loki blót, performed with 30-odd people via Zoom. It was awesome, and E did a wonderful job as always leading the blót (and the Loki vé is gorgeous), but of … Continue reading There Was an Incident
This veers away from the usual content I share, but this story is too good to not tell. It's not quite as astronomically impossible as The Story of ECT 2018, but still pretty improbable and mind-blowing. And hey, I've been naming my cars after Loki's children for almost 20 years, so there's your Loki-connection to … Continue reading Saga of the Jetta GLI
Last month, I teased a bit about a project I had in the works. And then I forgot to update about it. Because I'm damn awesome like that. Now I get to unveil my latest endeavor and maybe tease at yet another thing I've been waiting on. Or maybe not. Tricksters. . . who can … Continue reading A Fox Among Ravens
I don't dislike Fenrir. I have a massive soft spot for him, I really do. He's not an inherently evil being, and his fury is very much understandable. I get it. But that doesn't mean I condone what comes of that fury.
