A flash fiction bit about a school for those who train to fight monsters, and the one student who trains to fight the fighters. Which came from the thought, "What if useless sidekicks actually had ulterior motives and training?" ...and how much high school sucks.
A news story made the rounds on social media a few months ago, about a girl who regularly fed crows and the crows, in return, brought her little trinkets as gifts. So I wondered, what would happen if those crows were ravens? And those ravens were Munin and Hugir? And what would happen if they brought a little girl something more important than a bit of plastic?
And what happens when Odin, the All-Father, is forced to understand the challenges of a girl growing up in the modern world?
