The story of Baldur: Thokk says No by popicok The story of Baldur: Thokk says No by popicok
After Baldr was killed, Hermˇ­r rode to Hel. Hel, the ruler of the realm of the same name, agreed that Baldr should go back to the living if all things in the world wept for him. So the Ăsir sent messengers all over the word, and all wept for him, but:

"Then, when the messengers went home, having well wrought their errand, they found, in a certain cave, where a giantess sat: she called herself Th÷kk. They prayed her to weep Baldr out of Hel; she answered:

Th÷kk will weep
waterless tears
For Baldr's bale-fare;
Living or dead,
I loved not the churl's son;
Let Hel hold to that she hath!

And men deem that she who was there was Loki Laufeyarson, who hath wrought most ill among the Ăsir."

ŚGylfaginning (49), Brodeur's translation
