On the way to Geirröd Thor is crossing the river Vimur with Loki dangling on Grid's belt. Gjálp is causing the flooding of the river... Norse mythology

Loki: Oh Norns, Thor, please don't drop me! Doh! 
Thor: You're a shapeshifter and have flying shoes! Why don't you just- :o
Loki: I can't … urgh … I'm feeling sick … I think I am going to PUKE!

I would have the same reaction as Loki.

Period blood is gross, and Thor...he's something special if he an fuckin' wade through it without vomiting.

In the original rendition, she urinates into the Vímur River, one of the largest and oldest rivers, still around from the creation era. She urinates in it, causing it to overflow, because she's a giantess. Thor, of course, is half giant, so he picks up a boulder and slings it with such force and precision that it hits her 'at the source' and kills her. 

Artistic licensing is certainly at play here, and period blood doesn't flow fast enough to overflow a river. Unless she sneezes, but that wasn't mentioned. So. Pee.

Low class, low brow, and, yet, she was one of the nine mothers of Heimdallr. But, Heimdallr fathered the classes, and now we know why. He had some really classy moms, and some really uncouth moms that you'd see on Jerry Springer.

And now we know, and knowing is fifty percent of the battle (the other half is twenty-five percent red lasers, and twenty-five percent blue lasers).

I still don't get why he didn't just use his shoes that walk on air to walk above the river, did he forget his shoes or something? XD

A very accurate description of Gjálp's unique strategy. ^.^

I surely know what Gjalp feels... :D I also didn't know about this myth, but the one who once wrote it must surely have been a woman. :D

Last day was so exhausting but then I saw your drawing and it made me happy! Your works are so funny and optimistic in some way because you always choose the myths that end well and I don't think anymore about my shitty day and about sad ending of those stories :)

I love Thor. He himself tries to be so manly and brave but still he loves his friend so much that he doesn't care that Loki here is such a pussy, afraid to cross the water.Thor just grabs him and holds like a caring mother <3 Also, Loki looks so vulnerable! Nice:)
