The Allfather has decreed my return.
It has reached the time where I must depart and return to Asgard again. It has been an amusing and pleasant day here with you all on Midgard, but the Allfather will not allow me to remain, despite my brother’s attempts to persuade him.
However, there is some good fortune to come of this.
As a compromise, the Allfather has agreed that he will allow me to return for a day or two at a time as I did this day, to answer inquiries and oversee my blog.
I cannot say for certain how often these days will be, or when they will occur, but rest assured that this is not the last you will see of me.
I will have one of the Avengers post an advance notice on my blog as to the next time I am permitted on Midgard when I know so you can prepare your queries, but for now I must go.
Until the next time I return, Midgardians.
You are welcome.
Continue to have strength; do not let anyone else constrain you.
I would kill all my competitors, of course.
I was, truthfully, considering my brother’s proposal.
I had but a brief moment, but the answer was clear. I could not turn back, not after all that had happened.
A wise postscript.
Concerning your brother, you would do well to ensure that he does not find himself in my position in the coming years.
Dreamwalking is a very dangerous and high level of spellcasting. I have not attained such an ability yet.
Of course he did something to me. He was in my way.
Understandable. I had thought I would be leaving permanently; I did not expect to retain any of my following.
As for what has genuinely made me smile — my children, for one.
Some books and stories.
And, on rare occasion, my brother.
And I would warn you not to assume you know everything about someone simply because you happen to think you know another who is similar.
Even your conclusion about your brother is built on speculation alone. How do you know how he truly feels when you are not him?
My answer may not be what you are hoping to hear.
The truth is that it depends, on who you are and the circumstances surrounding the event.
