Okay so I’ve gone deep into Norse mythology and there’s arguably not a lot of information as apparently a lot of it has been lost over time, but I’ll highlight the bits that are most interesting to me
This could explain Elsa’s magic and I’m tempted to incorporate this into my headcanons. It would make perfect sense with Elsa’s ability to connect with the spirits of the forest in the way that she does. Not just because she’s magic and a spirit herself, but that she’s practicing shamanism. If I’m also correct shamanism isn’t just a norse mythology thing-but that Sami people often practiced this themselves. Shamanism was typically something ONLY women did within norse mythology as they connected with the spirits to perform magic and specific tasks. Shamnism itself is a form of magic from what I gathered but this is sourced from only one of the books I have that briefly talks about it.
Trolls appear in norse mythology so I won’t be changing that. But the Frozen Broadway musical replaced the trolls with Huldra or “hidden folk” Essentially the huldra functioned as the same the trolls did in the movies “explaining that fear would be Elsa’s enemy and taking away Anna’s memories”. But Huldra were a big part of Norse mythology as mysterious creatures often with “fox tails” and most often took the shape of a woman. However, this directly contradicts how the novels and broadway musical depicts them. Plus, they more often than not lured you to your demise. But it’s an interesting find that I read about
But the trolls?
These are trolls that tend to be lighthearted however, frossegrim are male. it’s likely disney combined the two since they share similar natures and mythos? and simply made them into one. Because.... that’s what disney does. But anyway, Fossegrim is ambivalent towards humans. Though apparently if you sacrificed a goat it would teach you to play the fiddle. But it was also a seductive spirit that lead women and children to their deaths. Clearly disney combined the two and just...excluded the “lead people to their depths” parts because it’s a disney movie. My suspicion is the the trolls were supposed to represent both the Fossegrim and Huldra and they combined the myths and made them one character, the trolls who lived in a hidden valley in the forest and liked to play music and also literally lured kristoff (an orphan) away from the humans and then just...adopted him?
Magne, seeing some goats at a farmers market or something: "Mum, remember how Laurits was allowed to have a pet? Can i have one, too?"
Turid: "Depends, is it another creepy snake or a normal pet?"
Magne: "No... they're very cute, though."
im still deadset on wanting to fully gene/scroll g1s and do a free giveaway of them so these are the ones ive kind of picked out to do At Some Point
ACOTAR smut overcomes me with profound sadness. It puts me in such a dark mood. It makes me feel so so so sorry but I don’t know why or for whom. There are tears behind the laughter
what the fuck do you mean wuthering heights and running up that hill (a deal with God) are two different songs
Its only me n my mutuals n photos of baroque architecture. Were all under a gold n paint covered dome eating our favorite foods VvV
Drawing fabric is no fun, when will I ever learn?

The Lonely Goat Herd
“There she is!”
A herd of what looked to be goats all turn simultaneously at the weary pair of travelers standing further down the hill. In the twilight, their eyes seemed to glow a piercing gold and sitting amongst them was the form of a woman wearing all black.
Noticing that the goats had turned their heads, she slowly stood up to reveal her long, spindly limbs that were barely covered by her clothes. Pale, skinny legs could be seen extending from the knee length fabric and her matching arms with fingers that resembled tree branches hung low enough to touch the floor even with her towering height.
The travelers could feel their hearts pounding. A dull ringing echoing in their ears the longer they stared at the creature and it’s goat herd.
This was not something meant for human eyes.
The shorter of the pair turned up to their partner. How had neither of them not noticed how quickly the sun disappeared? They opened their mouth to speak but was interrupted by a horrid shriek. By the time the two had turned back to the top of the hill, the only thing they could see was a hellish red.
getting emotional over goats right now. and rams. Like those are just animals that exist. You don’t blink an eye at them but then you really think about it and you’re like wow. That’s a living creature huh. Nice.
If anyone spoil me Any Way the Wind Blow I'd die. So, please, don't.
here we go—
as y’all can imagine i don’t even process the english “her” when i watch this scene, head empty, only aitsu
like, WHY IS IT GENDER NEUTRAL? wh—like, objectively, if they intended to make this about kairi in the end (bc rn we’d be thinking of naminé), wHY not just MAKE it say “her”??? like? i get that pronouns in jpn aren’t exactly equivalent to eng but like? i also understand that there are other pronouns that would have been more appropriate for a GIRL?
but this fucking—this pixely ass 2004 gameboy game just, decides NOT to. like. aight. 👀
i also like how sora’s sprite changed stances like, he went from the arms-behind-his-head confident pose to the arms-up-in-surprise pose lmao
SELPHIE YOU ARE A GOD
he really doesn’t get it, poor kid. i mean, fair.
sora’s heart is really just here, telling him “it’s okay” like, he likes riku and that’s okay. at least that’s how i’m partially choosing to interpret this bc i think it’d be important that sora HEARS that at least once. (riku could def stand to hear it)
THEN THIS GUY—🤣🤣
bye i love y’all thx for wrecking my brain like it’s nbd
it is my sunshine’s birthday once again!!
Every day I skirt closer to the edge of buying a record player I don't need and don't have space for just so I have an excuse to cover my space in Mountain Goats Album Art.
