Commissioned from link2004, who was delightful to work with.
At the end of the longest battle, a worthy warrior is taken up to Valhalla or Folkvangr to spend their eternal death drinking, fighting, and waiting for their turn to fight in the Ragnarok.
But someone has to choose who is worthy. Someone has to carry their spirits.
If I were to wake up dead, there'd be worse people to wake up to than Kara here.
