Friday is Freya’s day. Tall, shapely, and with flowing golden locks, the goddess steadied the reigns of her chariot, fronted by two felines. She was headed to the WFKU studio, among the halls of the Aegir. Asgard was decadently ornate as usual, but a certain gloom hung over the kingdom. Concern was raised amongst the halls that sacrifices weren’t being met. The seidr was brought to the Aegir by Freya, and her stormy eyes grew even darker when she heard the practice was being neglected. Freya stepped off her chariot and sauntered down to the hall of WFKU. The music grew louder as she sidled through the entrance. Stunned momentarily by her crafty charms, her intent soon became clear. A date, thought unlucky by most, was fast approaching. In July, the the thirteenth day of the month would be a Friday – and seidr and sacrifices had been ignored. Since they had not been practicing their rituals, Freya thought she would use a little magic of her own. So, a spell was cast over the station and all of Midgard who listened to them. Freya, with full command over her fateful date, ruled that if they did not produce sacrifices to her by the end of that weekend, the date would be bring terror on all the branches of the great Yggdrasil for the rest of eternity. But the fertile goddess was not entirely cruel. Freya also worked into her spell that if she was satisfied with the generous offerings she hoped to receive, that they would be rewarded. Not only would Friday the Thirteenth have a new, prosperous meaning, but the music of WFKU would thus reach all the lands connected by the glimmering Bifrost. With that, Freya, leaving all stunned with her craft, left the station and its listeners with glorious purpose and mounted her purring chariot.
