loki’s monsters / by audrey koch [slanted-edges]

Just want to note:  even though the most common versions of the tale say that Hel (the Goddess of Decay and Death), Fenrir (the wolf), and Jormungandr (the serpent) were children of the union of Loki and a giantess, I’ve found at least one scholarly essay that asserts that they were in fact mothered by Loki while he was in a female form. 
My own interpretation of Loki is that [he’s] impossible to define sex-/gender-wise.  Sometimes male, sometimes female, sometimes combinations of the two, and always changing.  I mean, okay yes, I’m predisposed to like gender-queer characters, but my interpretation of Loki’s gender also goes along with how I view [him] as a deity:  [he’s] fire, ever-destroying and ever-creating, and self-sustaining.


Myth Loki is a TOTAL FUCKING BABE
