“Are we there yet?”
This seemingly innocent question -yet delivered with more than a healthy dose of sarcasm- brought Loki closer to an outburst that would’ve made Thor proud. For the last half an hour or so, he, Fenrir and Nidhogg-Hild went through one security door after the other in a quest to get closer to the World Tree. “You should know the answer to that, so give me a break, will you?” shot the trickster god over his shoulder, to where Nidhogg-Hild impatiently awaited for him to open up the final door to the Tree’s inner chambers.
“Oh, I’m all for breaks… until I start to
“O-Ow… my head…” Pulling herself out of what appeared to be a thick layer of mud that had nearly swallowed her up whole, Peorth struggled to regain her bearings. Not too long ago, she managed to free herself from Surt, after their parachutes had somehow entangled during their descent, forcing the latter to cut them with his combat knife. Unfortunately, this happened a bit too close to the ground, leaving them with little time to deploy their backup parachutes. Which… inevitably resulted in a rather harsh collision with the ground.
At the very least, she narrowly avoided hitting one of the numerous dead trees tha
"Who gave you the permission to talk to her? Actually, why did you even think it was a good idea to begin with? Did I ever mention that I wanted a fucking reunion?"
There were several ways one could royally annoy Hagall, but the worst -and by far- was bringing up her mother; her biological one. And the moment she got word of her husband's rather questionable visit to Jokull's apartment… was more than enough to get her so mad that she literally saw red. After all, Hagall never even saw this one coming, given the fact that she made it absolutely clear that she didn't wish to talk to her mother, so, Odal had no excuses that he did
Deep inside the underground lab Loki uses to build his most… volatile -or downright dangerous- projects, the trickster god carefully hooked the figurine he found in that cavern to a highly sensitive scanner. This device was one of his own custom designs that provided an almost unprecedented level of detail in its analysis of anything he could really throw at it. Sure, there were several models that exceeded its capabilities, but most of those were specifically designed with a particular application in mind. On the other hand, this device was more of a general purpose scanner, that would hopefully crack the mystery of the figurine
"Well, that was… anticlimactic."
Unsure what else to say about this type of situation, Thor merely remained in the middle of the cavern, making sure that no one was sneaking up to them. The only potential threat in the immediate area however, was apparently Ansuz, who clearly seemed she was about to blow a gasket; or in this case, bring down the whole place on top of them. Then again, he couldn't quite blame the poor goddess for feeling frustrated, when their attempt to ambush that fake Hild turned into nothing but a wild goose chase.
Not too far from the god of thunder, his adopted brother was studying the-five inch statuette le
After spending the last couple of hours trying to decipher the mystery that the business card he got from Nidhogg truly was. Sure, the god knew all too well that this might've been nothing more than an elaborate farse, yet the fact that it was built with technology unknown to them was more than intriguing. The only issue with this particular device was the potential that it contained sensitive information hidden within it, and for that reason, Tyr avoided following the normal protocol for analyzing unknown artifacts. Even if the researchers appointed for such an important task were subjected to the most thorough background checks to el
Toshiyuki Aoshima. The very name that for the majority of NIT's graduate students was synonymous to a real life playboy, with more than fair number of conquests; even temporary as they were. In all fairness though, Aoshima never felt bad about it. From his perspective the world was big market, and those who had the most money deserved the best things life had to offer. No more, no less.
People often made him sound like a villain for misleading those poor women into sleeping with him, but he honestly didn't agree with that. In his eyes, it was those womens' fault for wagging their tails whenever money came into the equation, and gave in a bit
“I thought that first class goddesses weren’t allowed to lie.”
Looking up from the glass of water she poured for herself, Belldandy stared at her daughter-in-law who was already on her fifth, and kept going strong; not unlike a woman who just returned from the desert. However, Hagall wasn’t exactly the only one who was absolutely desperate for water, as Belldandy was one glass behind the demoness, even though she desperately tried not to make a big deal about this. “I wasn’t lying, you know. Keiichi and Odal put a lot of effort in their attempt to prepare us a nice breakfast. That much was nothing less th
