Ragnarök

The Wise-Woman spake:
14. “Home ride, Othin, | be ever proud;
For no one of men | shall seek me more
Till Loki wanders | loose from his bonds,
And to the last strife | the destroyers come.”

Baldr’s Dreams

*

I saw a strange and action-packed dream last night. I can’t remember it very vividly any more but I was with a few rebellious guys. We attacked some larger group late at night and then fled to an abandoned house afterwards. We were, however, chased and some of the avengers followed us there but we killed them one by one. It was clear that this was just the beginning of the conflict and the next day forces would be gathered and shit would hit the fan for real. In the house where we took refuge there was also a wolf and a shape-changing snake. The wolf was clearly used to these guys and acted calmly around us, almost like a dog who just doesn’t care much about what’s happening around it. I was anxious that we would be killed before morning but I was assured that this won’t happen and we all went to sleep.

Which meant I woke up in my bed and soon afterwards clicked on a link in my FB news feed, namely this one: http://www.ibtimes.com/what-ragnarok-viking-apocalypse-predicted-saturday-february-22-1557049

As far as the Vikings are concerned, the world will end on Saturday.

According to Norse mythology, Ragnarok or “Doom of the Gods,” has been brewing for about 100 days. On Saturday, all the gods including Thor, Loki, Odin, Freyr and Hermóðr, will fight in an epic battle. Odin will be killed by Fenrir and the other creator gods will fall.

“The legend of Ragnarok tells of the fall of the Norse gods and the birth of a new world, but, of course, if we wake up to the same old world on the morning of Sunday, February 23, we’ll have no regrets – our celebrations also mark Jolablot, the Viking feast to hail the coming of spring, which to many people is the annual rebirth of the world!” Danielle Daglan, director of the 30th JORVIK Viking Festival to celebrate the apocalyptic event, told the Yorkshire Post in England.

Legend has it Ragnarok will begin when Fenrir the wolf breaks free from his imprisonment. This sets off a chain reaction of events where Jormungand the Midgard snake rises from the sea and a wolf eats the sun. This will culminate in a titanic battle among the gods, men and all the races of the nine worlds.

I must say I was a bit shocked, seeing how well it all fit together :D Clearly I was with Loki and the gang (if you mention anything about these atrocities called the Thor movies, I will cut you), I just didn’t know it at the time.
