Loki uses his feather cloak to turn into a bird by Midnott (2022)

Loki is a demi-god and shapeshifter in Norse mythology. He is a Jotunn (Frost Giant) by birth, his parents are Fárbauti and Laufey. He has two brothers, Helblindi and Býleistr.

Loki is canonically married to Sigyn; the fannish name of the pairing is Logyn. He also has three children with the Jotunn Angrboda.

Contemporary Interest in Loki


I love how in the Lokasenna half the time the gods don’t even deny the accusations thrown at them, just give a responding insult. Like

“You’re a filthy coward who only cares about sex!”

“Ha ha, you got me there, but, I mean, so are you.”

Norse Deity ~Vibes~

UPG, but since I was just asked to describe this, here you go:

Loki: Weird. The feeling of fireworks at a fun carnival while strange music plays and the earth moves beneath you. Spencer’s Gifts meets ’00s Hot Topic. Shifting, the way you can’t quite hold water. Adapting, always finding a way forward, the missing piece of a puzzle. The sound of a fly.

Without loki, most norse myths would br very very short. It would be:

"Thor arrived. His epic hammer smashed all the heads. The end"

Sooo, one could say, that loki schemes. Saves lives? On the bigger scale!

(Except ragnarök but sssh)
