How the Skáldskaparmál must have gone down

  • Skadi: Asgardians, you have murdered my father. I demand restitution, or I'll lay waste to your land.
  • Asgardians: We suppose that's fair. What are your demands?
  • Skadi: Very well. I have three conditions. First, I want you to memorialize my father by making his eyes stars in the sky.
  • Asgardians: Consider it done.
  • Skadi: Secondly, I wish to marry into Asgard.
  • Asgardians: Again, fair. You can even have your choice of whom to marry. And thirdly?
  • Skadi: I want you to make me laugh.
  • Asgardians: ...What?
  • Skadi: You heard me. And remember, if ALL THREE conditions aren't met, the deal's off.
  • Asgardians: Er....
  • Loki: Hey, no worries. I got this. Give me a goat, a piece of string, and ten minutes with her.
  • TEN MINUTES LATER
  • Asgardians (waiting outside): What the hell is he up to- *interrupted by loud cackling*
  • Asgardians:
  • Asgardians:
  • Asgardians:
  • Asgardians: So, who's going to open the door and find out how he did it?
