Anonymous said: The fear side to the Vote no campaign is such bullshit, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and India have all walked this path before and prospered in way more uncertain circumstances because the British government respected our desire to self govern and gave us everything we needed to get going. The only difference with Scotland is Westminster is openly hostile to the idea and would probably broker a shitty deal with the Scots to try and prove that it was a bad idea all along.

I have to write a 10-20 page research paper on a Goddess from another culture that we do not cover in class. I was wondering if you or any of your followers have any suggestions for someone in either the Norse or Celtic traditions? Thanks!
Well there are some pretty badass goddesses in Norse religion and mythology (also in Celtic, but to be honest I’m not that versed on that subject).
My favorite is Freyja and her cat-drawn carriage:
Also, if someone of my followers as any more suggestions/resources, put them in an ask and I’ll post them (but probably tomorrow, ‘cause right now I’m going to bed).

I can agree to that.

tatterhood said: Hi, I just wanted to send you a ginormous thank you for reblogging my tumblr post about saving the viking/Háafell goats! I was so sad when I heard about Háafell's state, and I'm pretty sure you're to thank for all the notes/the radar feature on that post - and to thank for all the donations towards helping the goats! Much gratitude. (And I love your tumblr! I don't reblog as much stuff as I should but that's because I assume anyone following me *must* be following you so). Thank you again :D
On the contrary, thank you for posting it. Otherwise I wouldn’t have found out about it and I couldn’t have helped.
I’m so happy that those lovely goats are gonna be safe and have a bright future ahead of them :)
(Your blog is also really cool, I should visit it more often to reblog stuff)

Thank you Mr. Dorito and thank Odin! :)
Anonymous said: Hi! I'm french but my dad's parents are Spanish and my mother's father is Italian and spanish and her mother is French. So, I have Spanish, Italian and French blood in my veins. So, can I say I am Celtic? You Know, the Gaulish people was a Celtic people before the Gaulish war, in Spain the Celtiberian was a Celtic people too and some persons think about celtic tribes in northern Italy. But everybody think the Celts are Irish, Scottish or Breton (from Bretagne). What do you think about it ?
I thing ascendance is a complicated thing, it’s all a big mixture of everything, especially in France, Italy and Spain. As you say, there were Celts there, long long ago, but then came the Romans, and then the Germanic tribes (Goths, Visigoths, Francs), Spain and Italy where partially conquered by Muslims…
So as I say, it’s all a big mix.
The idea that all French are descendants from the Gauls is not really accurate, it gained a lot of strength thanks to WWI and II as a way to separate France from Germany, even if both countries and populations share a big bunch of heritage (the Franks where Germanic). Asterix, as amazing as it is, is one of the biggest promotors of this idea that Celtic Gaul and Modern France are the same thing.
The traditional Celtic places you mention (Ireland, Scotland, Bretagne, and also Wales and Galicia in Spain) are so because the people where more isolated and didn’t mix that much.
