Hallo! Kes here

Post by kestrelsings on Mon Feb 02, 2015 4:52 am

Well met, folks!

My name is Kestrel, I'm an English costumer (don't make a living at it unfortunately, but hey, I can dream). Loki turned up in my life early last year, and made it pretty obvious he wanted to stick around- and I'm very grateful for it, as about a month later I had the rather horrible epiphany that my brain had been lying to me all my life and I wasn't always female.


I grew up in a very strongly Christian household, and even when I left the Church at 18 it wasn't because I didn't believe in that god any more- it was because I couldn't deal with an institution that told me my sister had a mental illness when she was simply gay. I started exploring paganism, and found that soft polytheism suited me down to the ground- I felt like I was worshipping facets of the god I already knew, but calling them new names. I used the names of the Celtic pantheon, after all, I'm British. It felt like the thing to do. I never felt any great connection to them, however. Then, last Spring, I was reminded of my childhood interest in Norse myth and legend, and decided to look into it some more- maybe I'd form a greater connection with Freya or Idunn. There, still thinking in terms of Godesses! I hadn't even considered Loki- I'd read somewhere that there was no historical evidence of any worship of him, so I figured somehow no-one did it now. I was followibg links doing some web-research, and I ended up on a page listing his basic information- his family, what he's associated with- and just felt this joy, this certainty pour into me. I had a xouple of other signs that weekend that someone was interested in me, so I panicked and got out all my divination decks at once. For the first time ever, I got a difinitive answer- pretty much 'Of course it's Him, you twit'.

I've been head-over-heels ever since!
