UGH GOD WHY ATHELSTAN - I mean, given the myths and stories, there was really only one way to go with Athelstan, but I was seriously hoping that promised threesome would happen.

NHF this new Bjorn, tbh, even if he can act a bit, but yes to the Queen coming home. I'm not all that interested in the episodes that are Lagertha lite. NHF that hideous snake-eyed future murderer, either, but what can you do.

ikr? I think we will all have to dabble in OT3 fanfic forever to satisfy our desires for that because I think it's too late for that in the actual canon. booooo!

lol @ "future murderer" as if they're not all murderers tho

LOL, but they don't count because I like them, obvs.

IS there any good fic out there? I either can't find it due to laziness or...no, that's it.
hope_remains 21st-Mar-2014 02:16 pm (UTC)
There is! Mostly one-shots though. No one has the patience to write a multi-chapter fic anymore these days. But especially if you are here for Athelstan angst and general smut, just go to AO3 and there are PLENTY of sexy OT3 one-shots. nom nom
fromyourashes 21st-Mar-2014 02:23 pm (UTC)
Shoot, I don't have time (i.e., lazy) to wade through the mountains of crappy fanfic written by teens with no idea what love, sex, or romance is, tbh. I wish someone would put together a comprehensive list grading all fic I might be interested in, LMAO.

Wait, snake in the eye kid grows up to be a murderer?
fromyourashes 23rd-Mar-2014 08:03 pm (UTC)
According to the legends, he's - wait, IDK if you actually want to be spoiled.

Ragnar's son (snake-eye) is the one who kills him by throwing him in a pit where he's bitten by poisonous snakes.
myrrhmade 24th-Mar-2014 05:30 pm (UTC)
Wow, holy shit. Thanks!
lovedhurtlost 26th-Mar-2014 03:17 am (UTC)
I read that it was King Aelle. I know they're are many legends, but I think it'll end up being Aelle, tbh.
fromyourashes 26th-Mar-2014 11:06 am (UTC)
Yeah, but I'm pretty sure that only happened because his son with Aslaug went against his wishes to avenge their brother's death and caused the capture of Ragnar.

...I could be wrong, though, LOL.
lovedhurtlost 26th-Mar-2014 03:50 pm (UTC)
Ah, okay. Thanks.

Lagertha and the new wife interacting should be fun. And poor Lagertha. So glad she fought back, but her husband has to go soon.

And I really like new Bjorn, but I miss the old one. That reunion with Ragnar at the end was sweet.

Poor Athelstan. And wow, that baby is creepy.

Good episode and can't wait until next week!
nichcola 21st-Mar-2014 01:03 pm (UTC)
So glad warrior queen Lagertha is back. I can't wait for her to permanently lay the smack down on her abusive fuck of a husband.

Ragnar's new wife continues to be whiny and annoying. Even Siggy looked tired of her.

Damn, Athelstan.

BABY GOATS!!! Glad to see we're three for three with the baby goats.
hope_remains 21st-Mar-2014 02:04 pm (UTC)
Omgaaad Aslaug WAS so whiny in last night's episode, my god. I feel like they have no idea what to do with her character and she's just there as a point of conflict in Ragnar's life. Which I guess I'm fine with now that Lagertha is back in the picture.
alwaysu2 21st-Mar-2014 01:05 pm (UTC)
I was hoping the crucifixion scene was some sort of dream sequence. I really hope they don't have Athelstan betray Ragnar now that he's back in the company of Anglo Saxons.
crazychica1818 21st-Mar-2014 01:33 pm (UTC)
Not enough Rollo in that preview... but I can't wait until next Thursday!
hope_remains 21st-Mar-2014 01:59 pm (UTC)
I have so much to say about last night's episode, holy shit.

OKAY FIRST OF ALL LET'S TALK ABOUT ATHELSTAN. That crucifixion though?!?!?! I was cringing the whole time, my god, the fuck was that?!

And I want to know more about King Eckbert. Am I supposed to like him? I feel like the show wants me to like him. He saved Athelstan and is willing to strike a deal with Ragnar, and he likes homoerotic baths, so...

(If only this was on Showtime or HBO though, we would've gotten dat Fimmel ass. Damnit.)

Although thought it was interesting how pissed Ragnar got at Athelstan for staying behind. Imo it was like he was losing yet another son, because he has become so attached to Athelstan, teaching him, learning from him, watching him develop into a Viking he could give an arm band to. So, that was kinda touching.

When Ragnar was reunited with Bjorn though UGHHH THE FEEEEEEEEEEEEEELS. I HAD SO MANY OF THEMMMM. He loves his son so much! What a DILF. And I am SO happy Ragnar and Lagertha are back in the same place. I DEMAND SEXUAL TENSION.

Speaking of Lagertha, she was SUCH A BADASS BITCH LAST NIGHT. I was cheering. Lol @ Bjorn running up with a knife though and she's all like, "I'm cool, I don't need you to shank anyone but thanks bb."

I've been waiting for this post since last night, thanks OP!
mammary_glands 21st-Mar-2014 02:12 pm (UTC)
omgggggg, that still of ragnar and bjorn. how fucking perfect was that? it was so perfectly done and the gydda mention andnandand the playful slapping around and the super hard hugging and lagertha's proud but at the same time like "damn i'm missing out on those warm + perf ragnar hugs rn" face.

i'm so surprised by how much i'm loving new bjorn. i might have to stan.
mammary_glands 21st-Mar-2014 02:13 pm (UTC)
i have no clue how to spell gyda's name, excuse any and all typos of dis shit
hope_remains 21st-Mar-2014 02:30 pm (UTC)
yas yas yas @ all of that! I love that there was not just one but MULTIPLE forceful hugs from Ragnar and that is DEFINITELY what Lagertha was saying. we all know she wants to get in on that shit. I can't wait to see Ragnar and Bjorn fight side-by-side!!!
fromyourashes 21st-Mar-2014 02:15 pm (UTC)
Bless your light, I mean, just. Yeah.


I honestly thought Ecbert was going to ask Ragnar if he was dtf, idek.
lauracoy 21st-Mar-2014 04:33 pm (UTC)
Awkward!Ragnar was the best thing ever. Hardass afraid to get naked with the stranger. lol.
MTE to everything else as well.
shanny_w 22nd-Mar-2014 04:48 am (UTC)
lol tub king. "now we are equals"
mammary_glands 21st-Mar-2014 02:09 pm (UTC)
this episode tho... this motherfucking episode t h o.

they didn't sugarcoat shit and i appreciated it, after my initial "oh no" reactions. those poor nuns. poor baby athelstan. poor lagertha (tho she handled hers like a champ, as per). poor aslaug (lmao i know im the only one who probably thinks so, i'm expecting a lot of people to call her a spoiled brat but yall know you would be doing the same thing in her situation -- plus her little face when she saw the hog being gutted and then had the vision of ragnar :((( )

bjorn/ragnar/lagertha forever

lagertha/siggy forever

rollo-with-a-cause forever

hope_remains 21st-Mar-2014 02:28 pm (UTC)
yaaas I also appreciate that they didnt sugarcoat shit. cause that crucifixion scene was brutal as fuck. and the nuns screaming... yeah. poor athelstan. I am so curious what is going to happen to him mentally. like, it SEEMED like he was having second-thoughts about assimilating into the Viking culture, but then after what the Christians did to him, its like, who are the barbarians REALLY?

lmao @ rollo-with-a-cause. I know, I love him so much better when he's motivated and hopeful, haha
roguezombie 21st-Mar-2014 03:22 pm (UTC)
I feel like Athelstan is getting to the point where he doesn't believe in any religion.
moliphino 22nd-Mar-2014 12:03 am (UTC)
lmao @ rollo-with-a-cause. I know, I love him so much better when he's motivated and hopeful, haha

So does Siggy. I don't think she'd ever been so turned on in her life. (Me too, tbh. I love Rollo.)

A lot of my earlier good will toward Aslaug is gone. She acted very entitled. But the actress was really good. Especially when she was walking away from her sons.

Really excited for next weeks episode.
hope_remains 21st-Mar-2014 04:26 pm (UTC)
summoning some_unholy_war grl I need your thoughts pronto
lauracoy 21st-Mar-2014 04:37 pm (UTC)
A+ ep. Fantastic all around even if I have yet to feel anything but side eye towards the walking womb. I wonder when she'll crack for real over her shit life and the fact that her husband doesn't love her beyond her ability to crack him out some sons. Sigh.

Priest, bb :(
arisma 21st-Mar-2014 04:51 pm (UTC)
After that interview with the actress I was all set to give Aslaug some love but guess what? NOPE! Killed it with her whining. Yeah it sucks and I hate dirt too but you know what sucks more? Being fucking dead.
breaktheice89 21st-Mar-2014 05:18 pm (UTC)
Loved the episode! So excited to see Ragnar, Lagertha & Björn in the same scenes again, please give me some good angst writers. I didn't hate Aslaug in this episode but I can't warm up to her either, she's just there. And I'll never like her with Ragnar. That Athelstan scene made me sick omg, that was so brutal
prophecypro 21st-Mar-2014 06:40 pm (UTC)
Guess this should be checked out then yeah
klutzy_girl 21st-Mar-2014 06:40 pm (UTC)
Yes, definitely!
cruel_bitch0808 21st-Mar-2014 07:50 pm (UTC)
I loved this episode
ellesmereisland 21st-Mar-2014 08:06 pm (UTC)
So Jarl Borg is def getting the blood eagle treatment from Ragnar, right? Ugh that bums me out because I'm really loving his schtick right now.

myrrhmade 22nd-Mar-2014 11:11 pm (UTC)
The scene where Bjorn met his father again made me teary eyed. Lagertha continues to be flawless and badass. A Slug continues to piss me off to no end.
lovedhurtlost 26th-Mar-2014 03:26 am (UTC)
Ragnar, Bjorn, and Lagertha <333

Poor Priest :(

Aslaug needs to go.

I think the "eagle" the seer prophesied is the blood eagle. Sucks for Jarl Borg. I read that King Aelle was killed that way by Ragnar's sons for his death.
