Valkyries



I thought it would be cool for the story to make the Valkyries flying mermaids. When sent by Oden to pick up the bodies to
take them to the Valhalla (Hall of the slain) and became einherjar (spirits of great warriors), her fins would be made out of alive hair, wrapping around the bodies and bring them back......

Hi Nicolas,

I love your mer-valkeries--they are so inspirational and beautiful. Please send me copies of them. They are some of the most lovely and poetic pieces you've created. I'll treasure them forever.

One for all and all for one,

Terryl

thank you for helping me to create my own blog and for being such an encouragement tonight as well.
