I don’t think The Narrator understood quite what he was getting into volunteering for this episode.

It’s always the narrators who suffer in the end. All work and no love
So… who IS the narrator? Pretty voice? And extra points for all the comments on the various interesting strangenesses of the pantheon… I used to tell my cat that if he didn’t behave I’d turn him into mittens for Freya’s priestesses.
The Narrator is The Narrator. Someone with a good narrating voice. A bit of a drama queen at times but works for kolaches, so we put up with it. ^_^
@Jasta Odineye, obviously. I only assume this because of the “Eep”, though.
It is propable that I’m wrong because I don’t fully get the joke with the getting louder. Is it in the middle of the night and someone angry knocks at the door because he/she wants sleep?
That was Hod knocking at The Narrator’s door. He’s blind but has really good hearing.
Now I have seen absolutely everything.
Narrator vs. Hod?
And Hod wins?
Ermmm… I think I’m lost on who exactly the speakers are this comic. Of course it could also be the fact I just woke up and this is my first stop along my web route.
I get that one is Hod… after all it is his comic. But who is the other speaker and who is the knocker? At first I thought it may have been Baldur sneaking in – after all, Hod mentions a “pretty voice” – and trying to bu funny, but it didn’t read like stuff Baldur would say. I then tried to figure out which of the others it might be, realized none of Hod’s siblings would ever call Hod all those nice things in the very first panel. Well ok, maybe Loki… but only if it was beneficial to him, and this other speaker is losing! Definitely not Loki. So who is the second speaker… and who is the knocker? If the speaker is losing to Hod, they must both be there in the same room so it can’t be Hod knocking… ORO????
I think I better go find some coffee mead and wake up.
The voice in the bubbles is Hod (it’s his comic after all. The voice in the narration boxes is The Narrator. The Narrator is “omnipresent” and first appeared in Episode #6 (Spear Handlers). I use him from time to time to provide narration for the main comic. I thought it would be funny to have him try to narrate one of Hod’s comics and have Hod track him down.
What? y’all didn’t get that the first go round?
No worries, Jeff, it read clearly to me, and thank you for not including a ‘tinkle tinkle’ with the “eep”.
I’m trying to cut back on the tinkle humor in the comic. That way it’ll have more impact when we get to the giants.
2 words: Fire. Hose.
Ooo… a Norse fire brigade. I like it.
Happy is I on vacation that Hod is still at it. This comic made chuckle (quietly because the small fry is asleep and we are to surprise him in the morning that Auntie is here).
Hod is also very observant…and realises that aspects of Norse Mythology just doesn’t make sense (at least to us in modern times).
And a chariot drawn by cats…yes, Freya’s chariot. Will the illustrious twins Frey and Freya show up at any point? Frey especially is a personal favourite (along with Baldur – although Hod, as I’ve said before, is now becoming top fav because of this strip).
But back to a cat drawn chariot…having four of the little critters myself (no, I am NOT a crazy cat lady, honest), I know from personal experience they don’t take direction very well. I’m wondering how Feya managed to get them to cooperate enough to draw her chariot. Wouldn’t it be the equivalent to trying to herd cats? And of course, they never come when called.
Anyway, Hod as always is awesome.
Frey and Freya? Showing up in Brat-halla? It’s a definite possibility.
I have one thing to say: YAY!
Cats always come when you call. They can hear the sound of a can opener or box of cat food from miles away. In order to motivate them, you simply need something hanging from a fishing pole (mice, fish, feathers, catnip, lint…).
Heh, you haven’t met my four mogies (okay, three mogies and a Bengal). Even shaking their favourite treats doesn’t bring them all running…and of course, getting them to cooperate on anything. Ha!
The secret is not to let the cat domesticate you.
Another call for Frey and Freya from these parts.
I WANT MY NORSE GONE WILD, BØRR-DAMMIT!
