Loki’s Monsters

This is the early stages of a collection following the whole of Loki’s life. Inspired by research for my work with the – Rock Opera Gods Bless Ya!!! (hit the link to them above).

The shape changer god no longer knows what he is. The change of shapes so often, takes away the god-like sense of human-form, until a part of him is monstrous.fenrir-003

Even at his birth, when lightning took away his mother, he had to survive. Laufey had ran away while heavily pregnant,giantess 001.jpg in fear for her life from Cruel Striker, she ran.tree 001.jpg Deep into the Iron Wood.iron-wood At the moment of Loki’s birthsnake-005–  lightning struckfalling flames 02 up painted 03.jpg and Loki was alone. He had to change. loki bird.jpg

What monster in a god’s form entered Asgard?snake 001.jpg

He was embraced as blood-brother. Here he could be equal, and, he loved; his beloved wife and children, to them he was fair and loyal and true.

Yet he felt the call to share his love, to fly awayloki-bird-flipped – He went with Giant-woman Angrboda.giantess-002-flipped Went with her often.iron wood flipped.jpg They had children.

The wolf they could not kill, they tricked it:wolf tied it down to howl and wail and strain with magic dwarven ribbons holding him.

The daughter; blackened half, commandingly beautiful in half; she was cast to the very deep.hel-001-cropped“Become the queen of all the death, the cowardly dead, the trickster dead, the oath breaker. – Keep them, keep them.” So hollered High-seat god of all the worlds.hel-hand-001

How Loki fumed. It turned his heart. They were not monstrous to him. They were his monsters. They were his offspring. See ahead how bitter are his deeds because of this. “My children! My monsters! My offspring!”monsters painted cropped.jpg
