I started researching this goddamn video in june of 2019. I was so young. So innocent. This video is a precious relic of The Before Times, and unlike those inconsiderate vikings, I went out of my way to take *actual notes!*

Theory: Baldur became God after the Christianized Ragnorok. There’s a game called “Baldur’s Gate.” Baldur’s Gate=Gates to Heaven?

At 4:56 Loki says "You didn't write down the thing with the goat, right?" This is in reference to the time Loki tied his balls to the beard of a goat for a game of tug of war at a party. Because he was trying to cheer up a woman who was sad because her father had died. Because Loki had burned him to death. But hey it worked!

I thought Loki challenged Isaac to a duel to the death, only to get killed by Isaac's weaponized tears, and then Loki had to be stitched together with Hornfel to stay alive, both running into Isaac again, and getting killed, leaving Loki as II Lokis, so he adopted the name Lokii, before getting killed for real this time by Isaac again. TL;DR: Isaac is Thanos.

Ugh Christians Took A lot and I’m just mad at that because Now people have this Restrict against us and now we are the most persecuted “religion” in the world. Also yes Christianity was actually suppose to be different from religion and only relationship with Jesus and the belief of the God. Not anything else Dang it. *Adam and Eve..so..* So yes I’m mad at Christians Cause Now We can’t Do anything thanks to our own People!! Also this is Very interesting and I hope you do a Lucifer video like this. I’m generally Interested. ☺️

This reminds me of my favorite loki comic. Loki agent of Asgard, a series about loki trying to escape his role as the designated bad guy in thor's story (the gods in this series are kinda living stories, so they are aware that they are shaped by how they are perceived and what kind of story they are in) and in doing so recontexualing his nature as a god of lies by making himself a god of stories instead.

A lot of us who do deity work actually really enjoy having Loki around. He is chaotic but he's also gentle and loving. He'll make you confront your issues but make sure nobody upsets you. If you give him offerings of booze, weed, candy, or toys (he's easily amused), he'll make your life easy and keep you happy. While he may not be a "main" god, he's still a god that will help you be the best, most authentic version of yourself.

Q. Parablesque

Baldr's death reads to me as a moral fable. It shows the folly of a parent's desire to protect their child from the world. Freya instilled a sense of invulnerability in her son, which leads to the contest that results in his death. Chaos reminds us that no one is invulnerable. There is a tragic logic is Baldr dying from mistletoe. Parents try to anticipate every danger to their child, great and small. But they can never anticipate every threat. Giving the child a sense of perpetual safety can be very dangerous. Freya denied Baldr the ability or need to fear harm, which killed him in the end.

I wonder if Loki could be connected to Lørdag/Laurdag, the name for Saturday. Laurdag means washing-day, and isn't connected to any god. I don't know the etymology of it, but Loki and Laur sounds vaguely familiar? Plus Loki's transformation into a fish connects him to water, and an association with cleaning would also connect him further to the domestic sphere. Furthermore, if Laurdag was connected to Loki then that would give him a day of the week. And, (this is obviously wild speculation), it could connect him to Saturn, whose association with periodic renewal and parentage can be connected to Loki's role as a parent and in Ragnarok.

Okay, except that there's a story where that's quite the opposite from what from what happens. In the story, Loka Táttur, a farmer calls on Odin, then Hœnir, and finally Loki to protect his son from a jotunn he made a bet that he would give said jotunn his son if he won. Even though the story was written down really late. It could possibly show that there was an older tradition about Loki protecting humans. Never mind the fact that Loki actually calls Odin out for his treatment of human men in Lokasenna. According to that same poem he supposedly spent eight years living among humans as well. Unfortunately, this story is not recorded. However oh, that doesn't mean he's a nice guy. He's not, nor does he pretend to be. Odin would actually be worse than comparison. Considering the fact that he killed human men ruthlessly and that's why would any human want to worship Him considering the fact that he would just take their loved ones away.

Loki doesn't just find some random heart of an unknow person. It was the heart of one of the three witches who gave the Norse gods gold. Whom the Norse gods burnt for her evil deeds. Loki is so adamant to destroy her that he eats her partially burnt heart. The witches final trick. The vile heart corrupts Loki and turns him against the gods. The way to hell is paved with good intentions. It is after this that Loki begins the building of Nagilfar.

Possible plot point: Ragnarok is a fake ploy sent by an ominous god to Odin. Said god uses Odin’s paranoia to create weapons to kill the Vanir and Aesir. MC uncovers mystery as he goes through smaller arcs and fights the Ominous god and his organization, eventually ending Ragnarok instead of stalling it as Odin did.

Ok, this is just a theory, but Odin was also a god of magic right? I think he might have whispered a spell into baldurs ear that would allow Odin to live on through baldur. Just a theory, but it’s an interesting one. Also feel free to correct me if I’m wrong about Odin being a god of magic, as well as knowledge.

Oh I wish the Danish Christmas (or Yule) Calendar Series *Jul i Valhal* (‘Christmas’ tho technically Yule, in Valhalla) had an English translation. It’s basically a 24 episode Christmas series (1 for each of the 24 days in/of Christmas, from the 1st to the 24th) about these two kids (I believe their cousins) visiting their grandmother, and accidentally stumbles across and frees Loki, and no has to travel to Valhal to help fix things before Ragnarok can truly begin. It’s actually really good, Thor (or Tor) is a drunk asshole with anger issues, Loki plotting around pulling pranks, cowering, but also being quite clever. Fun spoiler, their Grandma’s pet dog turns out to be the chained Fenris wolf.
