As part of the A to Z Challenge for the month of April. I’m posting about my Valkyrie world. I will try to present elements of the world without being too spoilerific 😉
So today is the letter P which stands for Portal
In Norse mythology the Bifrost is the Bridge of the Gods, which is guarded by the god Heimdall. It’s been depicted through the ages in various forms with rainbows and flashes of lighning.
In the Valkyrie series its a system of invisible ‘wormholes’ that take people form one place to another, with the bridge touching down in countries all over the worlds. Sometimes their location is not convenient, or is no longer uasable due to changes in the modern environemt due to construction.
Sometimes the bridge doesn’t touch down anywhere near the intended destination which means miles of walking or alternative travel arrangements.
Later in the series, a character is able to write a program that can track the movements of people on the Bifrost itself.
Also, unlike the rest of the users of the Bridge, the gods can go anywhere, opening up doors in the system at whatever their destination may be.
So come back tomorrow for Q is for Queen
For the rest of the alphabet see below:
A is for Armor | B is for Blood | C is for Creatures | D is for Dwarfs | E is for Einherjar | F is for Fenrir | G is for Gungnir | H is for Huldra | I for Impossible | J for Jotunn | K for Knowledge | L is for Loki | M is for Midgard and Muspellheim | N is for Nidhogg | O is for Odin
