Reviews for Trolltunga
LongLiveHumour chapter 1 . 8/8/2014
This deserves more reviews.

I love those myths where an incognito god, rather than teach skill and knowledge to the people, just wanders about being a smug little shit. Even when they're being helpful, they're still smug little shits. "Oh, you poor weaklings, let me just lift that millstone for you."

I also loved those bits of Norwegian history, which I knew nothing of even though they're apparently really famous. 8C

Writing reminds me again of myths written down - I've noticed there's a convention, even with contemporary authors, to put down myths in slightly archaic language. It feels right. Grand but not ye-oldy-worldy. Probably be easy to read aloud, or maybe declaim at the feast table.

heh, this is quite how I would have imagined the younger set to be! And pre-everyone-hating-Loki-for-being-magical, although I am wondering why Thor keeps referencing LOKI being king?

The Latin phrases also need a glossary. I'm assuming they're Latin phrases.
A fun work. I enjoyed the read. I like reading about some of their wacky adventures.

Eheheh, I do so love fics where Thor and Loki’s younger years are explored. This one was really great. The detail added quite a lot of depth to such a short story and the Norse references make it feel even more realistic. You have a broad vocabulary and I had to look up quite a lot of words. (English isn’t my first language) I really appreciate it, though, since it’s always great to learn new things. It a challenge.

I was surprised at the fantasy element what with there actually being a real monster in the lake. I would have loved to see the locals’ faces if they’d witnessed the fight. It would have been priceless but Loki’s little stunt with the table was hilarious enough. *ehehehe*

Why does Thor already wield Mjölnir, though? Is he not too young for it yet? Well, we never were told when exactly he receive it so I guess it’s fine. Or does it say somewhere?

Daz chapter 1 . 12/9/2012
Extremely wellnwritten! Research was evident, and though I don't claim to know much about the history or topography of skandanavian countries it's soooouuuunds right so let's go with that

The whole story was enchanting and I can totally Maine little preteen Thor and Loki going around causing such mischief- especially love the bit about the restructuring that mountain face. As for the randoM creature in the lake- I the resting but seemed a ill anticlimactic- it could've put up some more fight than that! Though it was facing two kiddie gods

Anyways, cheers on a well written fix- it was very beautiful. One of the very rare few tht has a fascinating plot line (just the right length) without a random pairing thrown in. Nothing against those fics of course- its just how rare non paired good writing is.

Thank you for the awesome read :)

It's BRILLIANT! Absolutely brilliant! I feel like you've captured the brotherly affection between Thor and Loki without falling into the trap of making it too soppy :)

Still love your characterization of Loki ;)

You SHOULD have a glossary! I loved your story, it had plenty of action yet not too much and good dialog. I felt that it was well thought out. GOOD JOB! 3
Dresden Blue chapter 1 . 7/23/2012
Oh, this is lovely. The characterizations all seemed sound, given how young they are, and I particularly liked the bond between Loki and Thor in this - it was a wonderful, believable snapshot into what it must have been like for the two of them growing up, and makes later events all the more painful to think of. Additionally, the pacing was even and quick, and the writing flowed quite well.

A small note: it might have been good to explain earlier on that their bodies were still quite immature, since I had imagined them being far older looking by our Midgardian standards when I initially read through and had to revise that later on.

I love your writing.

Its so detailed xD

So I've already read all your Avengers/Thor stories so gold star for you, and I hope you continue what you're doing xD
Eden Hunter chapter 1 . 6/9/2012
I enjoy the premise of this story but it is far too long compared to the actual contents. I understand that you enjoy giving all of that extra detail but I felt it made it difficult to get involved in the story. Good work though and still a great story.
Blackwingcrow chapter 1 . 6/4/2012
Brilliant, I loved it! A very good story here! I'm surprised that it doesn't have many reviews. Anyway, this story, I like it... Another! (If you want, but if you write another like this then I will definitely read it!

Once again well done for this brilliant story!
