Though I've already said so, it's a gorgeous picture and your hair is gorgeous too.  :lovegoggles:  :)

Oh look... self-deprecation... *stabs*

It's a beautiful picture of a beautiful embodiment of Sif/Freya... but then if you're an embodiment of those two, you'd better be pretty... otherwise, Freya as a goddess of beauty and war might just rough you up for taking her name into... ?unpretty? .... territory... hrmm... I don't know where I was going with that, but I seem to have gone fairly far-afield... speaking of fields, Sif was associated with corn (most likely barley or a form of wheat, of course, normal maize corn not being around in Europe in the times of Norse myths)... *wanders off continuing to ramble discursively*

There must be something you're missing if as intelligent as you are, you can't see how beautiful you look. :P

Hrmm... compromise: Sif was of Nordic origins. Red-hair however is more hallowed and (purportedly) more common amongst those of Celtic (/Irish) lineage: you can be the Celtic counterpart to Sif... which is better (maybe) b/c you get to speak Gaelic. :P (arguably as Sif, you'd get to speak Old Norse... *represses urge to go learn Old Norse*)

hrmm...

Irish (granted a later period)

vs.
Old Norse (I'm assuming Teutonic runes? correct me if you meant another)


(The equivalent period would be the ogham)



(Ogham was written vertically off the center line seen running through each character and read bottom to top, left to right, IIRC)...

*is too lazy to resize the images at this time*

I think I like the first one best myself. :P
