** The degree to which gods are shaped and empowered by believers is kind of inconsistent. In ''Hammered'', despite apparently having no believers, Perun weather control powers rival Thor's while in Asgard of all places, who is explicitly described as being much stronger because his is still remembered thanks to the Prose and Poetic Eddas. The Morrigan matches Freya effortlessly in ''Two Ravens and One Crow'' and outright kills Vidar in ''Tricked''. In the former case, pretty much the same deal. Goddess of death beats out a goddess who is most frequently conflated with Frigg in modern minds. And in the latter, Vidar directly submitted himself to her sphere of influence by challenging her to a fight.

Goddess of death beats out death, even one that's largely forgotten, would still probably have more power than a goddess who is most frequently conflated with Frigg in modern minds. And in the latter, Vidar directly submitted himself to her sphere of influence by challenging her to a fight.fight over the ownership of a weapon that belonged to the Tuatha de Dannan.

* NeverMyFault: Atticus usually tries to avoid any responsibility for his actions and only tries to fix things if strong armed. He tries to skip town instead of dealing with the Maenads and only does when pressured to do so by the local coven. He blames the whole Asgard mess on the Norns and Thor only admitting he handled things "poorly" when forced to confront Odin.

Gods need prayer badly
** The degree to which gods are shaped and empowered by believers is kind of inconsistent. In ''Hammered'', despite apparently having no believers, Perun remains a viable fighter compared to the Norse, who are explicitly described as being much stronger because they're still remembered thanks to the Prose and Poetic Eddas. Though Perun never fought any of the "big name" Norse like Odin or Thor, just Skadi. Apparently, even a weakened god of thunder is more than a match for a god of skiing. Similarly, the Morrigan matches Freya effortlessly in ''Two Ravens and One Crow'' and outright kills Vidar in ''Tricked''. In the former case, pretty much the same deal. Goddess of death beats out a goddess who is most frequently conflated with Frigg in modern minds. And in the latter, Vidar directly submitted himself to her sphere of influence by challenging her to a fight.

Jerk with a heart of gold - atticus
Added DiffLines:
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Atticus is often an immature, selfish, irresponsible, rude butthole prone to petty abuses of power. But he will sometimes stop truly vile things from happening and can be nice and caring to those close to him.
