The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#930]

Asgardian with a decidedly British sensibility, Loki's presence fits this blog's original purpose to a T.  He has inspired reams of fan fiction [none of it mine, sadly] and a whole lot of amateur sibling psychology.  This lovely drawing is signed by the artist, but I found it, as always, on Tumblr.

True story:  I was looking for a particular piece of vintage art the other day that had absolutely nothing to do with Marvel or the Avengers or Norse mythology.  My online search presented me with a list of possible sources as long as my arm with no promise that any of them held the treasure.  I clicked on 'Asgard Press' for no reason other than the obvious, and HA!  In a few clicks I had what I was looking for.
