I miss Livejournal right now because Tumblr moves too fast and is too bright and motion-y for me to handle after a full day at work. Maybe i’ll install that thing that freezes all gifs unless you click to make them move. But even then, scrolling through this centered dash thing is just not working for me.
Q:The show has taken massive liberties around historical accounts of the characters (eg: Ragnar and Rollo being brothers rather than like 2 unrelated decades-separated Norsemen who were born long after the raid on Lindisfarne in 793). There's an Athelstan on Wikipedia and the Athelstan we know might eventually converge with him storywise, but like, do whatever you want because that's what the History channel did. ♥
Sweet. And thanks for the context! I remember looking up Ragnar’s story when the series first started, but not much else. I know a fair bit about the general history of the time because I studied historical linguistics a few years. : )
You couldn’t kill me if you tried for a hundred years.

I had some free time tonight and I wanted to draw some Vikings Fanart. This show is so perfect. I’m excited to see where it goes. Anywho, I drew Athelstan looking kinda badass because the next drawing I have planned for him… well… let’s just say despoilment.
He looks like a jedi!
What a cliff-hanger! I just really want that stupid reunion scene! Come on, Vikings!
I know Ragnar is based on a real historical figure, as are many of the other players, but how about Athelstan? Do we know what happens with him? Or am I free to conjecture?

That princess is thirsty for Athelstan. Girl, I feel ya.
