Loki and Sleipnir by MaverikElf Loki and Sleipnir by MaverikElf
I told you, I'm going nuts with this Loki obsession!

...and you haven't even seen my fanfiction. :paranoid:

Anyway, this is Loki with his son, Sleipnir. Yes, his son is an eight-legged horse. No, he's not the father.

He's the mother.

That's right. Loki got knocked up by a horse. Gawd, I love mythology! :D

Hmm, is it just me, or is Loki suffering from post-partum depression?

Either way this is kinda adorable :D It's a pity Snorri most likely invented everything to do with Loki's prank resulting in Balder's death, as well as the entirety of Ragnarok, because Loki was interesting enough as it is before that.

But hey, gotta deceive people in the name of Jesus, right? =_=

I've heard that there's a version of Balder's death where, A) Frigga and Odin *didn't* try to prevent Balder from dying because that's completely out of character for them, B) Loki had nothing to do with Balder's death, and C) Balder got himself killed by being an arrogant arse and challenging someone stronger than him to a fight to the death XD

But don't take my word for it.

Uh... Just thought I'd let you know that in mythology, Loki gave Sleipnir (who is adorable by the way!!! :) ) to Odin as his steed. He's also the father on Fenfir(a giant wolf who will be on the bad guys side of Rangrok) and Hel (goddess of death and the underworld).

Loki became my favourite god of all when I first learned he gave birth to a horse as a horse. I wonder if he every stayed up at night wondering about the way his life turned out.

Kind of fun seeing a mix of movie like desing and old myths like this. The result is princiless... But we know how cracking mythology is, really.
My only complain is Sleipnir is actually grey, not bay ;)

Reply
:iconameban:
Ameban Featured By Owner May 14, 2012  Professional General Artist
Yes, it's a really bizarre mix, indeed. :XD:
And Sleipnir is gray, it's said in the leyends (in fact, it's the other only fact known about this horse)As you can see on here, other Sleipnir pics around here, it's grey. ;)
About the movie, not at all. There, the used a Frisian breed, just because it has a flashy apperance, but it's just wrong because that breed is always black and from Netherland, not norse countries.

Awwww - a boy and his mother. Okay, a horse and his mother. It's still a sweet family portrait -- though Loki looks unhappy, while Sleipnir looks like he wants to help. Maybe Sleipnir could kick whoever's been giving Loki trouble.... Nice work!

"No, mommy"

The only thing that freaked me out about that story is that ~Odin~ rides Sleipnir.
Depending if you're in movie-verse or mytho-verse, that horse is technically Odin's grandchild or nephew!
Loki would probably be a very good mum when he's not going angsty over his daddy issues.
