how I came to be Idun

from wiki
given my long lasting infatuation with old Norse mythology, it should be no wonder that I would choose to be one of the Norse goddesses. I have always liked Idun (IĆ°unn) - she is kind and wise and beautiful (just like me, heh). and she will never grow old while she keeps enjoying those golden apples, but alas, I will not be able to keep my youth forever. we even share the initial letter in our names.
there is one point of disagreement though - her flimsy husband, Bragi the harp playing skjald. moody and irresponsible musicians have never been my "type", not even when I was 13. I would much rather have someone like Njord - a well grounded bloke who lives by the sea and likes it as much as I do.
