    "Be a listener in the forest, be a watcher on the plain, for you do not know - and this is important - whether your enemy lies in wait for you."

    Acallam Na Senórach, or The Tales of the Elders of Ireland, is the primary text for the Fenian Cycle of Irish mythology, which details the adventures and exploits of the warrior-poet Fionn Mac Cumhaill and his warband, the Fianna.

    In an episode near the beginning of the text, we are introduced to Mac Lugach, Fionn's grandson and fellow Fiann warrior. A cruel and impetuous youth, Mac Lugach causes distress and division among the other members of the Fianna, who urge Fionn to set the boy straight. What follows is an account of Fionn's advice to his grandson, which takes the form of a series of proverbs, encouraging generosity, fair treatment of others, personal integrity, and constant vigilance - including a warning for Mac Lugach to keep his ears and eyes open for enemies, wherever they may be hiding.

    This design features a line from Fionn's warning imposed over the image of a wolf's skull and a pair of antlers, pierced by an arrow and entwined with sprigs of oat and Kerry lily. Though the stories of Fionn are the stuff of legend, the institution of the Fianna - roving bands of landless warrior youths living off the Irish landscape - appears to have been historical. They were closely associated with both wolves and deer, as the warriors were said to fashion themselves after wolves in their hairstyles and raiding behavior, and the word Fianna is itself the plural of the Irish "fia," meaning "deer."

    Been getting more and more into Scion again lately, and got the fan-made supplements Nemetondevos: Revised and Lebor Óe In Dea, for the ‘Celtic’ and Irish pantheons respectively.

    Haven’t gotten around to Lebor yet, but Nemetondevos: Revised is amazing quality for a 36 page supplement, would easily be worth any amount of money the author asked for it, and just increases my need to play a purely Celtic/Arthurian game of Scion.

    #scion rpg #tuatha de danann #nemetondevos #now I'm just waiting patiently on the Arthurian supplement coming out #and then on the inevitable Revised thing by this guy fixing whatever Onyx Path got wildly wrong about Welsh mythology #irish mythology#celtic mythology

    All my fics that take place in the actual FGO timeline have a specific order as to which Servants were summoned to Chaldea first and out of The Celtic Circle the order was: Medb and Cu Chulainn (the exact same time but in different rooms), Fionn and Diarmuid (same day, few hours between), Fergus, Scathach

    #the celtic circle #medb and cu were first cuz i wanted #the fujimaru twins to bear witness #to cu trying to snipe medb on sight out of sheer habit alone #and medb weaving outta the way just 'NOT THIS TIME MOTHERFUCKER' #fergus brought a surprising amount of normalcy with him lol

    can I ask you if you have a book recommendation to learn about Egyptian and Norse mythology? and any other to be honest


    I'm always ready to recommend books so thanks for this.

    So I'd recommend all of Rick Riordan's books as they got me into mythology and specifically, I'd say "Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard" for Norse mythology and "The Kane chronicles" for Egyptian mythology.

    Other books (more educational):

    Egyptian mythology
    1. The complete gods and goddesses of ancient Egypt by Richard H. Wilkinson
    2. Tales of ancient Egypt by Roger Lancelyn Green
    Norse mythology
    1. Norse mythology by Neil gaiman
    2. The saga of the volsungs translated by Jackson crawford

    Aaand a few more (both educational and fictional)

    - Celtic Myths and Legends by Peter Berresford Ellis
    - The Book of Yōkai: Mysterious Creatures of Japanese Folklore by Michael Dylan Foster
    - Mythos by Stephen Fry
    - Circe by Madeline Miller
    - The Song Of Achilles by Madeline Miller
    - Where the Wild Ladies Are by Aoko Matsuda

    (p.s. my dms are open if anyone wants the links to any of these books)

    Revenge For Panenka

    On this the opening day of the 2020 European Championships I’ve written this poem to commemorate the 60th birthday of the tournament. I’ve given it the title It’s that Panenka penalty in 76 when he chipped it in to the net for Czechoslovakia’s greatest success creating an unforgettable memory commentators called sublime yet when Eddy did the same in the Scottish Cup final their successors…

    In the Metrical Dindshenchas, an ancient collection of Irish placename lore, there exists a strange story detailing how the Berba (the Barrow River) got its name. In the prose version of the tale, a figure name Méiche, a son of the Morrígan, had three hearts, and each heart contained a serpent. If allowed to grow, these serpents would lay waste to Ireland and consume all life upon it. Dian Cécht, physician of the Tuatha Dé, slays Méiche and cuts out his hearts, burning them to ashes, along with the deadly serpents. He then scatters the ashes in the Berba, which causes the waters to bubble up and all the life in the river to die, thus why the river has been called "Berba" ("boiling") ever since. The design of this piece was inspired by ornaments found in the Book of Kells, which is renown for its complex and intricate illustrations, often depecting different kinds of animals. Where the hearts meet in the center, they take the shape of a triskelion, a type of three-armed spiral featured in Neolithic and Iron Age Celtic art.

    I have things I never posted here!?

    Last year I wrote on a Runeshipping fantasy fanfic and was really into it. Today I decided to pick it up again and scrolled through my ygo twitter to find the post and came across these small things. 

    I’ll also post the fic after reading and correcting it a bit again in chapters on AO3 probably. And I hope I can go on writing, but I simply stopped mid-dialoque for no reason at all x’)

    Fanfic ship dynamic is mostly simply ‘he smol - he tall’ and it’s pretty stupid, but DM is a smug ass with a shady past in it and I love writing him. CG is just mostly grumpy and the good guy who just happen to stumble into DMs affairs.

    Paul Silas rebounded, played defense and, most importantly, won. His first season with the Celtics, they went 68-14, and won two world championships in his four seasons with them.

    The Celtics traded Silas after the ‘75-’76 season, then did not win another title until 1981 (Larry Bird). Silas played with Seattle in ‘77-’78, and Seattle got to its first NBA Finals that year, then won its only ring in ‘79.

    I don’t believe in coincidences.

    If you’re looking for something really unique and different for Father’s Day these 750ml stoneware bottles will be it. Not plastic, not stainless steel, these are stoneware bottles that are very difficult to find in the USA, PLUS they all have my original artwork actually CARVED into the glaze. Not painted, not a decal, carved. These are glazed with a rustic brown matte color. They are functional and food safe. You can’t find anything like this anywhere else, and I guarantee you the fathers in your lives have never seen anything like it. celtichammerclub.com ➖ #celtichammerclub #norse #nordic #viking #vikings #celt #celtic #irish #scottish #uniquegifts #giftideas #fathersday #fathersdaygifts #giftsforhim https://www.instagram.com/p/CP_a29ynLS4/?utm_medium=tumblr
