AnHeC (I'm too fucking busy and vice versa)

Hi! My name is Anna, "You'd really like me if you got to know me. I've known me for years and I love me."


Beowulf: A New Verse Translation - Seamus Heaney, Anonymous



Epic hero tales, the likes of Illiad, always make me gigle a bit. Why you ask?


"So every elder and experienced councilman
among my people supported my resolve
to come here to you, King Hrothgar,
because all knew of my awesome strength."


I just love how humble heroes are in those. And, naturally, rampant kalos kagathos. "Oh my, an unknown force of warriors landed on our shores. But they must be trustworthy because I've never seen more mighty/pretty warriors caring better universal slaughter-and-pillage equipment. I better go and introduce myself. "


*Sidenote - if you don't have an audiobook, read it out loud. It gives a real feel of an epic, vernacular, oral legend.
