Oh, hey! I am intreseted in Norse mythology too. Mostly because of Rick Riordan's 'Magnus Chase' serie, of course. Though I think Greek mythology is more intresting(Percy Jackson!), I guess norse mythology is nice too. I'm a beginner at norse mythology, but I think the incident where Loki cut off some goddess's hair is very funny. I can't remeber her name, cuz like I said, Im a beginner at norse mythology...

A few things about myself

 

Hi, my full username is SilverAceWing, but you can call me Ace. I am a proud Christian, and for all those who do not know Jesus yet,

"Believe in Lord Jesus, and you will be saved - you and your household."

I am a very big dragon fan, and this is my second time of school of dragons.

I used to play it, but I erased it for some reason(I can't remember why I did that). By the way, my name was NOT inspired by SilverWillowWing. Its because I like the color silver, in httyd books, it says 'the best is not the most obvious' so I didn't like gold, which is the best. I chose silver, which is second-best. And 'Ace' because I am very fast in TRR, 'Wing' because I mistyped the 'g'. It was supposed to be 'wind', with a 'd'.

 

Clan : Isle of Gazoo

 

Current Clan Position : Elder

 

Trophies : About 600 and counting!

 

Languages : Korean, English, and Boar Latin(The twins, Ruffnut and Tuffnut were generous enough to give me 473 free lessons.)

 

Main Viking : SilverAceWind

 

Main Dragons : Glowfin(Male Dreadstrider), Healbeam(Female Prickleboggle), Sandstorm(Male Sand Wraith), Dart, Pouncer,Wavebuster(Male titan wing Thunderdrum), and Winter(titan wing Woolly Howl)

 

Where to Find Me in-game : Training grounds, mostly, sometimes Wilderness when Im trying to take screenshots.

 

Favorite Dragons Top 10 : Dramillion, Razorwhip, Dart, Dreadstrider, Speed Stinger, Light Fury, Death Song, Pouncer, Night Fury, Woolly Howl

 

Favorite Dragon Classes : Sharp, Mystery, and Strike

 

Expansion Packs Completed : Icestorm Island, Battle for the Edge, Rise of Stormheart, The Hidden World, and Secret of the Leviathan

 

 

 

 

Yes, I am a MASSIVE Pokemon and HTTYD fan!

 

My favorite pokemon is  Lycanroc, especially dusk form! I like Eevee too, cuz, well, who wouldn't like that cuddly cute pokemon?

The goddess was Sif wife of

The goddess was Sif wife of Thor, the story goes like this.

 

One day the goddess known for her beautiful golden hair, has woken up to be completely bald. She was understandably heart broken and while all the gods where upset and angry they already knew who did it. When Loki decided to show up Thor wished to kill him for What he had done, but Odin stopped him as Loki was useful to him. Loki was sent to nifleheim home of the dwarfs to remake Sif's hair out of gold. He met ivaldi and etri, they both claimed their sons would be perfect for the job. He went first to the sons of etri, who made the hair, a spear called gunir and a tiny boat for frey. Going to the sons of ivaldi next they made a bet that if their gifts where better then the one's previously made they could claim the losers head. Getting to work they made a bracelet for odin, a boar for frey and lastly a hammer for Thor. Knowing that he would lose this bet he turned into a fly and stung the dwarfs eye, he lost concentration and the handle was too small. Going back to Asgard and presenting the gifts to the gods. It was very close but the hammer was the best weapon created and they won. Panicking now Loki said he bet his head but none of his neck and their for can't follow through with the bet. The dwarfs where furious and pulled out a needle and leather. Once Loki woke up after being knocked out by the hammer he realised the dwarfs had sewn his lips together and for once in his life couldn't speak. The gods where amused by this and Loki had the painful job of un stitching his lips. Ouch.

 

I'm not such a fan of Greek as I've always had a interest in vikings after httyd but some stories are good.

:( Your Subject has ran into a problem and needs to restart.

I don't know very much about Norse Mythology, but I have made references to it in my OC custom Universe.

Besides the story relating to Thor or Loki, I know the story about Fafnir and he turned into a Lindworm because of his compulsive greed. That's all I could recall in detail, I know that Fafnir was ambushed by a man while he was drinking at the river.

 

Another story I know a little bit about is Fenrir (the wolf of fire) has 2 sons: There's Hati; the giant wolf that chases the moon, also known as the Managarmr, and Sköll; who chases the sun, infamously known as the Vanagandr. According to Norse Mythology, the two sons chase the sun and moon across the sky, not for them to orbit the earth and have day and night, but to eat them.

During Ragnarok, the Vanagandr finally catches the sun and swallow it. The Managarmr is to swallow the moon and gorge upon the dead. That's what I've been told about the two.

Ragnarok also occurs upon the murder of Odin. It's either by Fenrir or Sköll. I don't remember who kills him.

    Hi, I'm Lack Lunason. I'm called that because I lack many things, and I'm a lunatic. I just put son on the end to make it sound more like a viking name. I'm also a Christ follower.

 

      Here are just a few things that I am:

  1. A procrastinator.
  2. Nice (mostly).
  3. Kind (don't listen to those that say otherwise).
  4. Adventurous.
  5. Lazy.
  6. A dreamer.
  7. And I'm slightly crazy.

     I've been around SoD for a long time. I think I was one of the first thousand to leave Berk and sail to the school. I'm happily part of the bold clan known as POTATO BROTHERS. I have over four-thousand trouphies, although, I don't like racing much. On the other hand, I'm a master farmer.

Quotes I love

 

"Once I set the sea alight with a single fiery breath....

Once I was so mighty that I thought my name was death....

Sing out loud until you're eaten, song of melancholy bliss....

For the mighty and the middling all shall come to THIS...."

The Green Death, How To Train Your Dragon: book 1. Cressida Cowell.

 

"WE WILL FIGHT THEM ON THE BEACHES! WE WILL FIGHT THEM IN THE BRACKEN! WE WILL FIGHT THEM IN THOSE BOGGY MARSHY BITS THAT ARE SO DIFFICULT TO WALK THROUGH WITHOUT LOSING YOUR SHOES! WE WILL NEVER SURRENDER!"

Stoick The Vast. How To Train Your Dragon: Book 5. Creessida Cowell.

 

"I sailed so far to be a King, but the time was never right.....

I lost my way on a stormy past, got wrecked in starless night....

But let my heart be wrecked by hurricanes and my ship by stormy weather....

I know I am a Hero...and a Hero is....FOREVER!

In another time, another place, I could have been a King....

But in my castle's ruined towers the lonely seabirds sing.....

I burned up my Tomorrows, I cannot go back ever....

But I am still a Hero....and a Hero is.......FOREVER!

Up with your sword and strike at the gale......

Ride the rough seas for those waves are your home......

Winters may freeze but our hearts do not fail.....

Heroes.......Hearts......FOREVER!

You are never alone if the sea is your friend......

Riding the waves of impossible quests.....

If it doesn't end well, then it isn't the end.....

A Hero.....Fights.....FOREVER!

The hero cares not for a wild winter's storm.....

For it carries him swift on the back of the wave.....

All may be lost and our hearts may be worn.....

BUT A HERO.....FIGHTS.....FOREVER!"

Grimbeard the Ghastly's Last Song. How To Train Your Dragon: Book 11 and 12. Cressida Cowell.

 

"That's how we're going to win. Not by fighting what we hate, but by saving what we love."

      That's about it. I give full credit for.....well, everything, to GOD. Have a good day. And, in the words of a Vulcan, "Live long and prosper."

 

Bye for now!

Norse Mythology is beautiful

Oh yah, he did turn into a mare, didn't he. With a stallion, he gave birth to an eight-legged horse in that form whom ended up being Odin's steed. I totally forgot about that one.

The tug of war...

Ok here's number 2 I PG'ed it because ya know children.

 

Skadi the giantess/goddess who chooses her husband by their feet, she chose the most beautiful thinking it was baldurs but it twas infact the vanir God Njord. She did marry him but it is unknown if she is the mother of freyr and frey. The two didn't get along well, she loved the mountains but hated the sea. She needed too laugh after being sad about the marriage so she went too loki, only something she deemed impossible could make her laugh. Loki tied one end of a role around a goat the other around ummm something you shouldn't tie a rope too and began a tug of war. They pulled and Loki fell into skadis lap and she laughed and kinda got over Njord. So I hope you got the story in the best appropriate way I could tell it :)

Mate that's freaking awesome,

Mate that's freaking awesome, apparently the English queen also has connections with Thor who is Odins son but that depends if you think the gods are real or not. I would love to talk to you about it !!!! At least when you meet someone now you can say your a direct descendant of a God.....
