Inhabited by Jealous Lovers of the Land

Mythology: Vila [Slavic folklore]

Though, the Vila’s moral alignments vary, and as such, the use of their feminine charm may be benign or malevolent. Some bat their eyes and flip their hair to attract a lover, while others lead pursuers to a literal dance of death. Yet, even moral alignment can sometimes be a blur; not always will a benevolent Vila help passersby in need. [x]

Among the 4 relics of the Tuatha Dé Danann is the Fál, whose function is to acknowledge the power of a king of Ireland.
The Fál is manifested as a giant stone penis (well, mainly just a stone but I prefer to think of it as a phallus) that screams when the rightful king sits on it.


Before she was queen of Connacht, queen Medb was married to Conchobar in Ulster. When she and her husband Ailill later go to war against him, she’s basically making her current husband help her beat up her ex-husband. HBIC.

MYTHOLOGY MEME - [2/8] LEGENDARY CREATURES: VALKYRIES

In Norse mythology, a valkyrie (from Old Norse valkyrja “chooser of the slain”) is one of a host of female figures who decide which soldiers die in battle and which live. Selecting among half of those who die in battle (the other half go to the goddess Freyja’s afterlife field Fólkvangr), the valkyries bring their chosen to the afterlife hall of the slain, Valhalla, ruled over by the god Odin.
