ooc: well, since the site is down temporarily, we can use this instead.

Leaving Hel to her own devices for until it was time to go, Baldur returned to his room. He blinked, eyeing Nanna as she sat at the fire.

"Are you sure you're ready for this, Baldur?" she asked, looking over at him with a slight worry.

"Of course. Haven't we talked about this for months?" Baldur replied, going over to his closet to see if he could find something suitable to wear.

"I know but...what do you think he'll do?" Nanna asked worriedly.

"Who? Odin?" Baldur turned his head to look at his wife.

"No. Forseti." Nanna looked back at him, tears in her eyes. "Will he hate us?"

Baldur sighed, thinking of their son they had together. "I think he will be upset, of course. What child wouldn't be? But he's a smart lad; he'll realize that what we're doing is right. He isn't the god of justice for nothing, after all."

"I hope you're right, Baldur. I hope you're right." Nanna gazed into the fire while he dressed. Time would tell and she only hoped that he was right.

"Yeah! I'm starving!" A voice sounded from behind them. Arms wrapped around Hel from behind and hugged her. "Hey sis! You cleaned verrrryyyy nice."

Loki rolled his eyes heavenward. "Jormy, behave yourself."

"Aye, Father." Jormungand smiled innocently, setting Hel down and winking at Gersimi.

Baldur shook his head. "Is that all your family thinks about? Food?"

"Hush up youngin'." Loki sniffed, then all but drooled when the bell signaling for the guests to take their seats sounded. "Yes! Food!"

Hel turned around and stuck her tongue out at her brother. "Jormie, you're being a goof." she said, "What's got you so hyper?"

Gersimi blushed. "I must admit I'm a little hungry too." she said, "Although we did get to eat what we made in cooking class..." Her blush deepened.

"Oh nothing..." Jormungand replied, smiling over at Gersimi. "We just had a very good lesson today."

Loki arched an eyebrow, looking at the smug look on his son's face, and the blush on Gersimi's. He snickered, shaking his head. "Behave yourselves, children. At least while Odin is around."

"Yes Father." Jormungand said contritely.

"Well, I'm glad the lesson was good." Hel said, "And that you enjoyed it." she hugged her brother. "And you won that bet, by the way." she rolled her eyes. She didn't want to say anything in front of people that might be taken the wrong way, but she also knew her brother and knew that he would pester her, "And that's all I'm going to say about that."

"Really? All right!" Jormungand gave her a smug look. "See? Always believe your brother, he knows all!"

"Heavens help us." Loki rolled his eyes, then led the way to Odin's table. He sat inbetween Odin and Heimdall.

"Ah, good idea." Baldur grinned, taking Hel's hand and leading her to the table as well. He sat her down in the seat next to him, then took his own seat.

Gersimi smiled at them, waved, and went to sit next to her mother and sister.

Hel sat next to Baldur, looking around at all the crowd. She saw a few faces she knew, but so many of them were unknown to her...she was starting to really get nervous now.

Baldur smiled reassuringly at Hel, then snickered.

Jormungand sat across from his sister, winking at her. He took his napkin, making little animals out of it for his sister.

Sighing, Loki shook his head, then winked as Sigyn giggled. She poked her father, her eyes plaintive. She wanted to eat!

Odin rolled his eyes. He wasn't eating anything, after all...

He stood up from his chair with a stern expression on his face. "Let all here eat and drink and fill themselves on the bounty set before us!" he said, and raised his tankard of mead, draning it in one long gulp, then sat down.

"Yay!" Sigyn beamed at her father, kissing his cheek before starting to eat.

"You know, you really should try eating once in awhile." Loki remarked to his blood brother, waving a stick of meat at him.

Baldur shook his head, then winked at Hel before starting to eat as well. He'd wait till dinner was finished before making his announcement.

Hel blushed and started to eat as well, finally relaxing a bit as nobody made any comments about her beeing there.

Odin rolled his eyes at Loki and took some of the food that was sitting in front of him, throwing it over to his wolves.

"Spoilsport." Loki grinned, then started to eat once more.

Sigyn snickered, kissing her father on the cheek before finishing her meal.

Gersimi spent much of the meal throwing hidden (or so she thought) glances at Jormungand, and blushing, and by the end of the meal Freya was making every effort she could to catch Loki's eye.

Hel was oblivious to everyone around her but Baldur once she had finished eating. She couldn't seem to keep her eyes off him.

Jormungand didn't even bother to hide the fact that he was staring at her.

Loki finally noticed, arching an eyebrow upwards. He looked over at Freya, noting the look on her face. He sighed, nodding briefly.

Once dinner was finished, Baldur stood up. He smiled at them all and Nanna stood, coming over by his side. "We have an announcement to make."

Odin, pleasantly buzzed by this point, looked over at his son and daughter-in-law. "By all means!" he said, grinning, "I can't wait to hear! You giving me another grandson finally?"

"Ah, no father." Baldur looked at Nanna, who nodded, her face serious. "We want to take this opportunity to announce our intention of divorce."

"Divorce?!" Forseti stared at his parents, shocked. Nanna smiled sadly at him, but nodded in agreement.

Odin's expression went very cold. "On what grounds are you basing this absurdity?" he asked Baldur.

"On the basis that Nanna and I just don't love each other anymore." Baldur began, facing his father's displeasure. He'd known Odin wouldn't be happy about this. "And the fact that we haven't slept with each other for three years."

"Three years?" Odin asked, "And this is mutual?" He was swearing under his breath. He'd wanted to keep the two of them together, the perfect couple, but how was he supposed to do that when they were plotting against him and actually fulfilling the requirements for divorce.

Nanna swallowed nervously. She could tell that Odin was highly displeased. She stood straight, meeting him in the eye. "Aye, my lord. We still care for one another, but not as husband and wife. We both wish this divorce."

"Well damnit I can't make you stay together, I will at least make one stipulation on this divorce." Odin said sarkly, hoping to dissuade them at the last minute, "Nanna, if you want to Divorce my son, you must chose another to marry. I will not have this break my alliance with your father."

"Oh. So I must choose another of your sons?" Nanna asked archly, then smiled happily. "If I must, my lord! Let's see..." She made a show of looking around, though her eyes seemed to always return to Hod. "I choose...Hod."

"Hod. Yes, that would work." Odin said thoughtfully, "We'll have the ceremony in two days time, so that it doesn't interfere with the other wedding upcoming."

"As you say, my lord." Nanna bowed, hiding the little smile on her lips. This was perfect! Now Baldur would be free to pursue Hel if he so wished.

"And on that note, although I must apologize to my daughter for it being overshadowed, I have another announcement to make as well." he said, a small smile growing on his face once more. "My darling daughter Sigyn has finally relented and agreed to be married. For some reason she decided that Loki is the one she wants, and so that is who she will get. they are to be married next week."

A gasp went through the room, staring at Loki incredulously. He blinked, shrugging. "What? She's cute!"

Sigyn snickered, blushing slightly at the attention. She wasn't used to so much of it. Some of the minor goddesses gushed, saying how lucky she was to find herself such a fine catch.
