Daily Deity #3 - Fenrir

Today's deity was suggested by Daniel:

A fab quote via wikipedia, which was part of the inspiration
"Further into the poem, the völva foretells that Odin will be consumed by Fenrir at Ragnarök."

This is a nice li'l homage to my term studying Icelandic Sagas (remarkably, most focused on the mortal, and not the godly. But that doesn't mean those ol' vikings didn't like their gods. I, myself, have an unintentional-but-all-around-snuggly love for Odin, but Fenrir is pretty hardcore. Rowling, as many of you may have already concluded, made him famous in these strange, contemporary times of ours). Fortunately, since I've had about 2/3 of a bottle of wine, he was not the hardest to draw. Three cheers for wine and wolves! 

Ain't he cute?

Grad school apps are all due tomorrow*. All of my stuff is submitted (phew), so... Wish me luck!

*except for one, which is due in March
