Storyboard Text

  • "The evil Ymir hath been slain!"
  • Eventualy, Ymir turned evil and was slain by Bor's three sons.
  • So much blood flowed from Ymir that all the frost-giants drowned, except for one who had built an ark for him and his family. The three sons dragged Ymir's body to the center of Ginnungagap and made the earth. His blood becoame the sea, his bones rocks and crags, and his hair the trees. His skull was transformed into the sky, making the stars from Muspell's sparks and molten slag, the remainder of sparks set to move in paths below the sky. His brain was thrown into the sky to make clouds and his eyelashes to keep the frost-giants at bay.
  • On a sea shore, the sons made two people out of two logs they had found washed up. One gave them the breath of life, the second consciousness and movement, and the third faces and the five senses. From these two came all of the human race, just like the gods from the three sons.
  • The sons had set up the sky and stars, but left the heavens unlit. Afterwards, the two people had two children, a daughter named Sol and a son named Moon. Jealous, the gods pulled the children up to the sky. Sol drives her chariot swiftly across the sky to the Northland because she is chased by a wolf each day while Moon isn't.
  • HELP!
  • How about no.
  • The gods did leave one path from Earth to Heaven in the form of a rainbow bridge. it appears in the sky as a rainbow and its perfect arc and beautiful colors tell of its origin of the gods. it will not last forever though, for it will brea when the men of Muspell try to cross it on the way to Heaven.
  • The End.
