A lot of fluff and a tiny bit of historical stuff. Mainly Doctor Who, Sherlock, Harry Potter, Supernatural, Firefly, and numerous other nerdy things :D

Rán is the Norse goddess of storms, and the wife of the sea god Aegir. She rules over the realm of the dead which is situated on the bottom of the ocean. She sinks ships and collects drowned sailors in her nets and takes them to her hall where she tenderly ministers them (drowned persons neither go to Valhalla nor to Helheim). With Aegir she is the mother of nine daughters (their names are poetic terms for different characteristics of waves), who wore white robes and veils. Sailors often carried gold or other jewels in case their boat sunk to offer and please the goddess.

COLLECTION OF YORUBA ORISHAS

Not to diss on Northern European mythologies but can we seriously have some fuckin’ recognition that there are religions and mythologies that are not Greek? Why the fuck did I learn about the Greeks 6 times but we never fucking talked about Africa or Central America or South America or Asia or even really the mythologies and beliefs of Native peoples of North America? 

Elegua is my santo. Was raised santero by my abuelita.

If you had to make me choose between Young!Hiccup or Older!Hiccup, I don’t think I could. He’s still his adorkable self whether he’s 15 or 20. 

I love how his impersonating his dad game only improved over the years. 

I think that’s more because he was bitter and angry in the first gifset, but in the second he’s just messing around. Hiccup’s body language is very expressive that way. XDDD
