Scandinavian tales and creatures

Havsmannen (the man of the sea) is a handsome young man who can be found wandering along shores in misty weather. He would seek out a lonely sailor’s wife and transform himself into her husband, which often resulted in the wife giving birth to a green-skinned child with gills and fin-like feet. As an apology, Havsmannen would give the sailor good winds and calm seas, ensuring that his boat never ran aground.  

I automatically assume people won’t like me, so I don’t talk to them unless they approach me first. I can’t become a part of a crowd because I can’t get past that feeling that I don’t belong.

Hockey player makes kid’s day. [video]

Pure, unadulterated joy on that kid’s face :)

There were three sorts of Dornishmen, the first King Daeron had observed. There were the salty Dornishmen who lived along the coasts, the sandy Dornishmen of the deserts and long river valleys, and the stony Dornishmen who made their fastnesses in the passes and heights of the Red Mountains. The salty Domishmen had the most Rhoynish blood, the stony Dornishmen the least.

All three sorts seemed well represented in Doran’s retinue. The salty Dornishmen were lithe and dark, with smooth olive skin and long black hair streaming in the wind. The sandy Dornishmen were even darker, their faces burned brown by the hot Dornish sun. They wound long bright scarfs around their helms to ward off sunstroke. The stony Dornishmen were biggest and fairest, sons of the Andals and the First Men, brownhaired or blond, with faces that freckled or burned in the sun instead of browning.

The lords wore silk and satin robes with jeweled belts and flowing sleeves. Their armor was heavily enameled and inlaid with burnished copper, shining silver, and soft red gold. They came astride red horses and golden ones and a few as pale as snow, all slim and swift, with long necks and narrow beautiful heads. The fabled sand steeds of Dorne were smaller than proper warhorses and could not bear such weight of armor, but it was said that they could run for a day and night and another day, and never tire.

side by side we shall stand
        with courage coursing through our veins
                 and power thrumming from our fingertips.
our voices loud like a war cry

Formatting on Tumblr blows. So, here’s a cheatsheet. Simply go to reblog this and click on HTML. Then, copy and paste the sections you need. There are links to symbols and generators you can use as well (particularly for header text). “br /” is used for keeping text one line under what was previously written (HEADER #1) while p creates new paragraphs with a clear line between (HEADER #2). If you write too much in the pre (grey background), it will add a scrollbar. Here’s a link to all the code used because it’s gonna look weird reblogged.
