    Makes me think of a Hilgya-Ivan-relationship on a divine level. He loves it and she's trying to poison him...

    They definitely deserve each other.
    Actually, in-comic that is a pretty good guess if we learn more of the fates of Thrym and Hel. I would guess that we just see Hel's anger and disappointment, but not much more. But if I am wrong, your guess is a good one.

    I can also see Hel not being formally punished for her actions, but having to marry him on some technicality brought up by Thor and Loki.

    The more I know about Dwarves in the OOTS, the more I think Ivan was not so much mentaly derranged as living in denial because loving her wife was the honorable thing to do.

    I see Thrym as just being a guy who is hoping to woo a girl because he likes her. He barely cares about the power or anything (useful, but largely irrelevant), he just was hoping to go have a nice dinner or something.
    He'll probably have crushed dreams and stuff for a century and then move on.

    The "Thrym becomes Hel's wife as her punishment" bit is kind of funny though.

    Was that on purpose, because Thrym seems to be the sensible one with hopes for a little romance? Or did you mean that Thrym becomes Hel's husband?

    He'll realize Hel never loved him and only used him, go home, stay in bed all day and eat lots of icecream, like people who have their heart broken tend to do.

    And then he'll realize he could be the god of ice cream, get lots of worshippers and live happily ever after.


    I love all the creative ideas people came up with (especially the one about Loki seducing him, that's totally a thing mythological Loki would do), but Hel falling in love with him? Nope. Never happens. Not getting the cue she's just not that into you is the most unattractive thing a man can do, and the comic strongly hints at the author knowing that. (All stories where women give in to incessant pestering and it's portrayed as true love, not as abusive relationship in the making, are male wish fulfillment - and we really, really don't need more of that.)


    I could see her asking him to sacrifice something for her cause and promise to marry him if he does, he does it, and then she is all "Lol, I lied".

    And then he might get the clue.

    Do you mean sensitive? Because sensible (in the usual English meaning that I know) is a thing he pretty obviously is not ...

    He may have sensibility, but he surely doesn't have any sense.

    In the main comic, he finally has the concept of a "one-sided crush" explained to him and bails. In the book extras, Loki arranges a series of wacky rebound dates for him. Calling it now.

    Yup, sorry. Must've been my German roots confusing me. In German, 'sensibel' means to be susceptible for emotional or physical pain, or just very empathic...
    Do you see, why one could mix up 'sensibel' and 'sensible'?

    "Sensible" in English can actually mean more or less the same thing--one of its definitions is "cognizant; keenly aware", so saying "He was sensible of his faults" means he's very aware of them. It's a fairly archaic usage, though, so you don't see it very often.

    Ah, false friends. How I don't miss them. Sensible even makes it the opening paragraph.

    Sensible in Spanish works just like sensibel in German. I spent much of my childhood quite confused by Sensible Soccer.

    And then Hel reports all his posts to the mods, and so Odin has to create a bunch more mods and that is how Pelee and others become mods.

    And thus, the influence of dragonkind grows, which was why Tiamat set up a date between Thrym and Hel in the first place. It all adds up now.
