An updated version of the shrine for Sigyn, Loki, Vali, and Narvi last featured here.

Everyone Who has left:
- Dionysus – No matter how hard it may seem, I can’t give up on trying to make a career out of theatre.
- Lucifer – When I first encountered Him, I loved the idea of learning how to play the violin for Him, but He was hesitant to confirm it. The only thing He conveyed for the portion of the Questionnaire about any debts or obligations was that I should go ahead and do so.
- Unknown Spn Entity – I was able to find out that my suspicion was correct and this was Dean.
I am closed off to the Family of Mountains, Family of Snow and Ice, and the Family of Fire (other than two plamen Who have already visited).
Rather than having People leave outright, I’ve simply had Some turn Faces away: Narvi (Older Face) and Loki (Mardi Gras and Harley Quinn World-Breaker Faces).
Some pages have been updated, consolidated (in the case of the Tribes), and just outright deleted to reflect these changes. However, with changes being conveyed daily and trying to update more than one online space, I can’t guarantee that all updates will filter to every page / blog for a little while.
I primarily talked about what I do for Narvi’s Younger Face in my intro post because it seems to make more sense with the least amount of explaining. I mean, just how complicated can reading a story and ‘tucking’ Him and Vali in for the night (metaphorically speaking) be? The ages of how old Narvi and Vali seem to be with Their Younger Faces shift, but They’re typically pre-pubescent.
Narvi’s Older Face has always been a little confusing. Because He suddenly uses visual avatars that are my age (20s), and He has this thing for strawberries (wanting an edible offering including them or a post of a recipe shared on a monthly basis), and He’s had this oddly flirtatious vibe about Him. It’s not sexual, and it’s not 110% for sure flirting, and there’s just this suspicious part of me squinting like ‘you’re definitely related to Loki’.
At least that’s how I’ve so far interacted with Narvi’s Older Face, but there’s a reason I do yearly updates on what I do and how I interact with Everyone (it keeps changing). So far, the main shift is that the Older Face has less of a QP vibe [queerplatonic (or quasi- if you’re not comfortable using queer] and seems more aro [glossary link for aro and arospec terms].
*actively ignores some of the glossary because I’m not interested in why some of those seem to make a helluva lot of sense* Other than the aro vibe, the only other change is that the strawberry offering once a month is being tweaked to only occurring from July to November (when the Older Face is the main One; from His death until His cycle Restart on Dec 1st).
[I’m sharing how I’ve known and interacted with Everyone, starting with the Aesir. The Vanir will be next, then the Rokkr, and then the category where I put those Who don’t seem to pick just one category.]
Narvi has a Younger Face and an Older Face. The Younger Face is the start of the mythological cycle which includes His death (Dec. 1st is when He switches from Older to Younger). So, from Dec 1st to whenever the July full moon is (since that’s His death and switch to being the Older Face), I read a prayer for Him and Vali then read ten pages of LotR (*). Relevant tumblr tags: Narvi, n&v [Narvi and Vali], LOTR.
(*) I first shared this here on tumblr, and I’m a bit surprised reading back over it. It was posted in Dec 2013, and because I didn’t know about the Younger and Older Faces (or that I’d have almost an entire year of combined devotional lockdowns in my future), I had a very optimistic date of when I’d be finished reading the trilogy (technically six books with two in each ‘book’ we know as the trilogy). I estimated 98 – 101 days (1 year and 46 – 49 weeks) or basically two years. Well, it’s almost two years later, and I’m in Book 2 Ch IV A Journey in the Dark (in what’s usually called the first book The Fellowship of the Rings).
I’m aware that this doesn’t help most people figure out where in the story I am, so:
