Heh, that would be awesome.

That situation sounds like what Anne Rice had to deal with before she left New Orleans (i.e. she had stalkers and fans practically camped outside her home in NO and often tried to mob her as she left Sunday mornings for church or just going outside in general), or any celebrity for that matter.

But having Asatru followers and New Age posers would make for some fairly comedic -albeit for some uncomfortable- situations, especially since this Thor would probably be shocked/mortified/insulted by how they'd act in his name.

Come to think of it, I think it'd be an interesting commentary on crazies in religious groups in general and how a deity would genuinely react to them, but that's just me.

always good.

I do think—based upon various Asatru/Wicca believers that I have met—that most of them would
be very respectful. It's the more fly-by-nighters that I'd love to see Thor lambast!

And, it would be fun to see a bunch of academic types out there, with their notebooks, and
theories, asking Thor (or the other Asgardians) about various translations, theories about
the actual meanings of skaldic works, the Eddas, and so on—hoping for clarification.

I know that I'd have a question or two, myself, but wouldn't dare journey there to ask it. \:\-D
However, I'd probably send them something in the mail. What's their new zip code? lol
