MYTHOLOGY MEME - [3/8] LEGENDARY CREATURES: JÖRMUNGANDR
In Norse mythology, Jörmungandr is a sea serpent, the middle child of the giantess Angrboða and the god Loki. According to the Prose Edda, Odin took Loki’s three children by Angrboða, the wolf Fenrir, Hel and Jörmungandr, and tossed Jörmungandr into the great ocean that encircles Midgard. The serpent grew so large that he was able to surround the earth and grasp his own tail. When he lets go, the world will end. (x)

I don’t feel enough for you to cry

His ledger is always balanced. In for a penny, in for a pound. His price list is never a game of risk and reward. Some come to him so desperate he demands all the gold they’re good for. He whispers. Their loved ones whisper back. They will never say everything that those left behind to live wish to hear. Others smile in a way that makes him chuckle. He works his craft for free then. There’s no need for him to bleed them dry when the monsters they want summoned will do the job for him.
His nights may be lonely- but he’s never longed for any company besides the dead.
