Agony Picture

I've been very into Norse mythology lately and one of my favorite stories is that of Baldr and Hod.

Basically, Baldr had a dream where he died and freaked out to the other gods and they were all "onoes!" so then his mom Frigg went to all the stuff in the universe and made it all promise not to hurt or kill Baldr and the stuff was all "okay!".

That night they had a banquet and since Baldr couldn't die, the other gods decided it'd be fun to chuck axes and stuff at him for the lulz. Loki, watching nearby, was annoyed because he didn't like that Baldr was now immune to everything and because Loki is a dbag. So Loki disguised himself as an old lady and went to hang out with Frigg and asked her if Baldr had any weaknesses.

Frigg was all "lolololol, there was this plant called mistletoe that didn't promise because it was too young", and hearing this, Loki went to get the misletoe and make it into a weapon. He returned and went to kill off Baldr, but noticed that Baldr's brother Hod wasn't chucking stuff at Baldr like everyone else.

Loki was all "lololol whatchu doin'?" and Hod was all "I'm blind, so I can't chuck stuff right" and Loki was all "here! I'll lend you my bow and arrow, and I'll tell you where to aim! Have fun!" So Hod did and it killed Baldr and everybody was really angry so Odin went and screwed a giant and had Vali whose sole purpose in life was to kill Hod in revenge so he did.

BUT HOD WAS INNOCENT AND WAS TRICKED BY LOKI WHY IS IT HIS FAULT WHY SO MEAN????


So I maeked a pitchur.
