How It All Got Started

I wasn’t the only one shooting things at Balder that day. Everyone wanted to see if he was really invincible to everything in the world, so they gathered at the Thing to test him. [Elmer Boyd Smith, “Each Arrow Overshot his Head,” in In the Days of Giants: A Book of Norse Tales. Houghton, Mifflin & Co., 1902. p. 232] (tagged: Hod (Höðr), Balder, Loki, Odin, Frigg)
