    I take it those uncontested deaths from the past century or so might be what Loki brought that filing cabinet for.

    I think the gods might have thought ahead on this one. Even money on there being a queue of gods outside with a list of souls to contest.

    guessing all of the major ones but Odin but then Loki seems prepared to handle the rest solo

    I'd expect every deity in their pantheon that's voting in favor of saving the world to be in on this one.

    On another note, this one had be bona-fide laughing out loud. . .just Loki rolling in there with a filing cabinet, all cheerful, ready to either force Hel to turn over every Dwarven soul she's got in the last century unless she's willing to argue with Loki over all of them (and thus not be able to directly intervene in the battle).

    Seeing the Thor/Loki teamwork is awesome.

    Thor and Loki, together again.

    Dynamic duo out to save the world.

    I had something like that rattling inside my head when I saw the comic.

    Wonder what a Chaotic Good god and a Lawful Evil god movie would look like...

    There's a line from The Vor Game, by Lois McMaster Bujold: "The key of strategy... is not to choose a path to victory, but to choose so that all paths lead to a victory."

    Thor's read this book, I think. :)

    Even though it's distinctly lawful, I wanna say that this was a Loki plan. It feels like a Loki plan.

    Besides making for a great distraction, Thor and Loki are totally bailing out hundreds of thousands of souls right now. A century seems kinda short, actually, considering Dwarven lifespans.

    I mean, she could just release every soul she has ever gotten.

    But then I suppose she'll lose her divine power.

    It's W/W for Thor.

    I wonder if suddenly losing a filing cabinet's worth of souls from the last century would cause a noticeable dip in Hel's divine power?
    Would that be enough to let Thor and Loki do something about the whole situation, or is this just a distraction?

    Heh, I like that Thor continues to keep to his word that he can't interfere on the Mortal Plane, but as soon as they get an inkling Hel is going to try to interfere, he and Loki show up to keep her occupied until the opportunity passes.

    And, of course, finally giving Thrym the dating advice he needs.

    Thor and Loki are not allowed to interact in the Mortal realm, her personal power doesnt change her vote

    So if a soul is contested, would that body still work as a host for a vampire?

    Is that a roundabout way to kick the vampires out of the hosts in either location with voting vampires?

    I registered to post this.

    Hel wants to do something that is against the rules of the agreement she has with the other gods - directly intervene in mortal affairs. She can only get away with doing that if all the other gods are distracted and nobody is looking. She certainly can't get away with doing it if Thor or Loki or anyone else is standing behind her trying to get her attention.
