Hod

Just another lonnnggg day in Hel.

Hel

Well I’m glad you’re here! Gods don’t die that often, and I get bored without my own kind to talk to.

Hod

Happy to be of service, Hel. But I’m homesick, you know?

Ditto.

Hermod

Hey brother, how have you been? I’m thinking of coming for a visit. I miss you! Plus, Mom’s been on my case to negotiate for Balder’s release.

Oh Hod, honey, did you meet with Hel like we talked about? What did she say?

Hod

Yes Mom, done and done. But don’t count on Hel releasing Balder anytime soon. He’s her favorite prisoner.

I’m everybody’s favorite. Just like in Asgard!

Hod

rolls eyes.

Hermod

rolls eyes.

Hermod

Hey Hod, check this out! You’ve got second sight!

Hod

Pretty sweet! Wish that were true IRL. But why did they make me look so old and feeble?

Hey Hod, how’s that eternal damnation working out for you? Shot any more brothers recently?

Oh Loki, leave him alone. He feels bad enough as it is.

Besides, everyone knows that my death was really your doing.

Well that didn’t stop Vali from punishing Hod with a one-way ticket to Hel, LOL.

Hod

blocks Loki.

Hod

Thinking of getting one of these guide dogs. It’s hard finding my way around a new place as a blind person. Hel’s hall is so huge!

Ooooh, I want to raise a puppy for you! They look so cute!

No more dogs! I’m tired of cleaning poop off our lawn.

Hod

LOL. But I appreciate the offer, Idunn!
