Me: I'm finally feeling better, maybe I can get back into my practice again after this slump.
The Universe: Disney is copyrighting Norse deities, and due to the copyright laws in the US, this is a threat to modern pagans and even academics.
Me: W-what...?
The Universe: You heard me.
Me: ...
Me: Fuck this fuck everything I hate this fucking world someone give me a time machine and a shotgun I want to go say hi to Walt Disney!

Anyway, there's this post going around talking about Disney making people take down Loki related things they're selling, whether it's Marvel related or not. Which I could write a whole novel about how fucked up that is. BUT, someone in the notes started going off about how it doesn't even matter because, "Any self respecting Norsemen wouldn't worship Loki anyway." Which is completely stupid to say in the first place.
I worship Loki. Loki is not some evil being that causes everyone harm. He literally wants you to take care of those less fortunate and take care of yourself. Especially when it comes to emotional support. Worshipping him is also about finding pieces of yourself that you've lost, or are trying to keep hidden. Loki wants you to improve yourself and those around you.
So like... What the fuck do you MEAN no one who respects themselves (or their religion) would worship Loki? Especially if you mean that in a serious manner. Some of you literally just say whatever comes to your head without taking the time or care to research it first. Lol.

In a stunning change of pace as far as comments on this fic go, here is a thread which has absolutely cracked me up. The outrage at Loki's idiocy gives me life.

You. Don't. Own. Gods.
You wanna face divine retribution? Shit like that is how you face divine retribution. Y'all are playing with forces you cannot begin to comprehend the repercussions of.
Hands off the stabby boi.

Disney has trademarked the names of a bunch of Norse gods.
This is not okay.
These gods do not belong to Disney. They do not belong to Marvel. They belong to themselves and themselves alone, along with all those who worship them as the deities they are.
Thor, Loki, Odin, etc., these gods were not thought up by anyone at Disney or Marvel.
Stan Lee knew how sacred these gods are to those who follow many different Pagan traditions, how sacred they are to Scandinavian cultures to whom they are so important.
My best friend follows the Norse gods. She will be so bloody offended when she finds out about this. These are her gods, this is her religion. These are the deities she worships, the gods she prays to, the traditions she follows. She enjoys the Marvel portrayals of these characters, but they are separate from the gods she believes in.
Disney is stepping on her religion in an effort to gain more and more money.
Stan Lee did not trademark these names. He understood their importance and their sacred meaning. He was respectful enough not to do this.
These names are not the intellectual property of anyone. Neither the original names in runes nor the anglicised names that are used in Marvel's works.
They were around well before us (a whole ass millennium before us), and they will be around well after the greedy bastards who have decided to trademark religious symbols are dust.
It should be common sense and common courtesy not to trademark the names of religious figures, which all of these gods and goddesses are, even if you do not believe in them.
mod is not christian but you would never see me trademark jesus ffs it crosses a Line
If you agree, please sign and share the petition. If you can, please chip in to get this petition everywhere it can possibly go.
It is f**king disgusting that Disney is doing this.
It needs to stop.
Oh, and one more thing.
FUCK DISNEY.
i want to throw up ive included a bunch of tags trying to get the norse pagans attention bc im sure they'll want in on this if u have an in with the norse paganism community on tumblr pls do tag everyone u can
im wondering now if they've done this to the greek gods too ughh that would show even more of a disregard for other people's religious views and past people's religious views ughhhh ok imma go look at the toilet bowl for a bit 😅pls sign it'd mean the world to me

Hello all!
I wanted to make a bit of PSA for some events I recently found out about :
Our wonderful friends at Disney are trying to make money off of Norse Mythology. ( Surprised arent we ?). They have been trying to trademark the names Loki,Frigga,Odin,Thor along with a few others. They have also been sending Cease and Desist letters to small businesses and Etsy shops who make deity candles.
I'll link a couple of videos I saw explaining the matter better and a petition.
Petition:

Hail to the All Father on this Father's day!
Odin the father wisdom, poetry, death, divination and magic. Who sacrificed his eye to drink from the Mimir's Well of Urðr, which granted him an incomprehensible amount of knowledge of the universe.
Hail Odin!

I wish that.. People would start reckoning with maybe the norse Gods in the myths are absolute pricks, Loki was right and vilified for their queerness/that was what was supposed to show they're worthless and evil and we can't keep trying to adapt the myths with the same uncritical sympathies with the gods if we want to do meaningful commentary. Also maybe just maybe we could stop making these inhuman rich ppl with lizard eyes who are literally conspiring and in control of the world? That would be nice. Just. Something I'd watch out for when adapting myths commonly claimed by literal nazis.

Father's Day is upon us and while my biological dad doesn't entirely deserve the praise a father should have on this day, it is my pleasure to continue the tradition I have of thanking my deities that are fatherly to me from my personal experiences that may not always get Father's Day wishes.
I don't really work with any female deities anymore but I really should try to make a Mother's Day post for them as well.
So Happy Father's Day to:
Odin- The Allfather and the one who has been around on my life the longest and influenced me a lot in my life. Despite my avoidance of the Norse (truthfully I don't know why either xD) and anything to do with them, you still kept your eye (no pun intended) on me. I'm thankful you are in my life nudging me on a path to better myself.
Ares- We don't talk much but people give you such awful traits that don't belong to you. Everyone thinks Ares is some meathead with anger issues but that is far from the truth! Ares is a fierce protector of his children and in my experienced while you may be quieter, your silence should never be mistaken as hatred you hold or disdain. You simply are watching the tides before leaping. I hope we get to work together more.
And last but never least:
Lucifer- So many people give you titles and names and traits that don't belong to you. You have been around almost as long as Odin but I got to know you first. You have given me your gentler hand while I'm stumbling toward the better path for me and not once have you given up on me. I remember my days asking for El's love and light and I never got that from him. You however, you answered and lent me your light. Maybe the start waaaasn't the best choice, but I knew it was you and am so glad I can call you Father Lucifer. I may not be the best at trying to pay attention to what I need to but I do promise to try my best regardless. Thank you for being in my life and making it better.

Part Eighteen of The Fixers
Tumblr media
Katherine was beyond angry. The stupid witch and her friends had ruined everything, and now that man - who had somehow survived an exploding plane - had killed the only friend she had left.
So she decided to collapse half the palace roof. It was the end of the world, after all.
Unfortunately for her, Bucky jumped out of the way just in time to avoid being crushed.
Kath seethed at the sight of him, and proceeded to walk down the palace steps towards the group.
Thor stepped in front of her.
“I would not come any closer if I were you,” he said.
Katherine laughed.
“Why not?”
“Because I won’t let you. You have done enough harm.”
Katherine laughed.
“Oh, please. You haven’t seen anything yet.”
To his absolute horror, Thor suddenly found himself being lifted into the air.
Unfortunately for Katherine, it didn’t last long, as she was suddenly struck by a hammer.
She collapsed onto the ground, stunned by what had happened.
“How dare you?” She shouted.
“No,” Loki said calmly, “how dare you?”
It was only then that Katherine noticed he had scars on his lips.
“I am a witch!” Katherine said desperately. “I was a demon, but once I absorbed her powers, I became a witch. I am the Grim Reaper herself! You shall die at my hand!”
A harsh laugh made Katherine turn around.
Hel smiled at her.
“That’s sweet; you think you control death? Sweetheart, I’m the Goddess of Death. I control who lives or who dies, not you. And right now, you’re boring me.”
Katherine stumbled back in shock.
“Why are you being so horrible?”
Hel didn’t answer; instead she just smiled.
At that moment, a giant grey wolf burst into the palace. His name was Fenrir, and he was a child of Loki’s.
Katherine didn’t think twice; she tried to lift the wolf up with her mind.
*
Luna felt a bit sorry for Katherine; the key to lifting someone up with your mind was to have a clear mind. The wolf snarled at Katherine, and was about to eat her, when Luna used Bucky’s knife to stab the wolf in the side.
“We should get out of here,” Luna said. She ran towards Katherine, and grabbed her hand.
“Why are you helping me?” Katherine hissed.
“I don’t know. But you should come with us; you’ll be safe.”
“You took everything from me! You took my family!”
“How?”
“Don’t you remember me? You should at least remember Damian.”
Luna froze.
“You’re from the cult, aren’t you?”
Katherine nodded.
“You ruined my life.”
She let go of Luna’s hand, and let the palace collapse around her.

So I've got a complicated relationship with this day. But given I've got nothing but dude gods at present, I figure I might as well wish them all a happy day.
Happy Father's Day to the All-Father, Odin!
Happy Father's Day to Thor!
Happy Father's Day to Loki!
Happy Father's Day to Máni!
