Myth and Bruce
Bruce was not too sure what to do at the moment, when there was the sound of someone else at the door, and the front door burst open. A young girl wearing some strange sort of armor came walking in, and she gave everyone a smile. A hammer was looped onto her belt and she was carrying around a stuffed rabbit and she went right up to Myth. "Hi, how are you? My name is Nova," she said somewhat softly, giving her a bit of a wave before she went over and gave her mother a hug.
"Oh, hey Nova, a few of us were wondering if you'd ever show up."
"Well not everyone can be on time to things..."
Myth stood up finally, after having the others fuss over her. She held out her hand to Nova. "Pleasure to meet you Nova. I heard good things about you." She turned back to Bruce. "Any other members of your family or have I met the lot?" She was joking, of course. Given that her family was all gone, she was happy that Bruce had a large family to be intertwined with. And all of them seemed welcoming and open to her, which she was worried about.
Runa hugged her daughter back. "Well, my parents - Baldur, God of Light and Nanna, Goddess of Peace and Joy - will be arriving shortly. They're visiting my brother in Asgardian prison," Runa informed Myth. Halley and Astrid were chatting in the corner, with Astrid showing Halley a little peak at the present she had gotten for the lovebirds.
Nova gave Myth a smile, before she stepped away from her mother and shook her hand. She may look to be around 12 or 13, but she definitely was a lot stronger than she appeared. "I think Klara and Thor are going to show up to the actual wedding too..." Bruce said with a shrug. They had said something about possibly coming, but it wouldn't surprise him if at the least Klara wasn't able to, she did have to deal with matters on Asgard after all.
"Yay, it'll be nice having the family back together all in one place again for the most part... Isn't that right Mr. Bunny?" Nova said, holding the rabbit up in her hands now. The stuffed animal looked pretty old and worn, but that didn't really seem to matter to her.
Myth tried to wrap her head around all the names. "This is going to take some getting used to. It was only ever my mother, father, my older brother, and me. Small village, not much to do there. Didn't have parties or big events. Weddings were quick and simple and now, here I am, being invited into a large family, of gods no less. It's...a lot to take in." Myth wandered over to Bruce, mainly to have someone familiar close by, should things prove to be intense.
"...Well, I know it is a lot to take in... My family is a bit on the strange side. If you want to talk to someone about getting used to the idea of being with gods or whatever, you might want to talk to my father... He's from Midgard too, so I believe he's kind of been in your shoes before... Oh, and I should probably warn you slightly about Nova..." Bruce said softly to Myth, looking at her.
Myth took that in. Perhaps she would talk to his father later. "Thanks. I'll get used to it in time. I signed up for it, after all. And we have a binding contract developing in my stomach as we speak." Myth glanced over to Nova as she talked and played with her stuffed rabbit. "What do you mean? She seems all right."
"...I've been around for almost 10,000 years, Nova won't exactly let anyone she knows age, reason why our parents and our grandparents are still around... So warning, she might not let you age past a certain point, you might be stuck for basically ever... So, just be warned, she likely won't let you age, at all... Trust me, Astrid has been trying to get her to age her past that of a teenager."
Myth shook her head and chuckled. "So you're telling me I may look as good as your mother for years and years? And this is a bad thing? I think I'll live with that, but thank you for the warning, love." She kissed Bruce's cheek and returned her attention to her guests. "While we wait for possible others, would anyone like something to drink?"
"Don't have anything too strong, husband dear," Runa told Lance with a bit of a smirk. "He's Midgardian - we have to water down the alcohol on Asgard to an extreme so that way it is safe for him to consume... Our spirits are traditionally aged a thousand years."
Astrid snorted. "Yeah, Dad can't handle his alcohol at all," she emphasized. She then nodded at Myth. "And I'll trade you your present for a drink?" she offered. Halley said she would take one as well. Astrid then opened a portal and pulled out a winged puppy. "Surprise! His name is Ulysses and he's all yours! He can do tricks too and he doesn't really bark - he kinda sings! So it's perfect, right? Since you love music and everything, he can sing with you!"
"It's more howling than singing..." Halley clarified.
"If you say so Myth, I just thought I'd warn you about whether or not you'd even want that... Nova doesn't like the idea of anyone ever dying..." Bruce whispered to her, before he heard the conversation his mother had started, and he couldn't help but laugh slightly at that. Then he saw the puppy, giving the animal a smile. Everyone in his family tended to have a bit of a soft spot for animals, especially more of his sister, father, and one of his grandparents.
"Hey! Not my fault I'm not Asgardian or even part one!" Lance responded with a bit of a chuckle.
"...Does that really matter so much? I doubt you'd be able to deal too much with Midgardian spirits," Nova said with a giggle. "And even if it is more of howling than singing Halley, the puppy is still adorable, so does that really matter?"
Myth had tuned everyone out as soon as saw that face. It was true love. "OH MY GOD A PUPPY!?!" Myth immediately took the pup in her arms for snuggles and pets. "Who's the best boy? Is it you? It's you! I've never had a pet and always wanted one! And he sings too? This is the best gift ever! Thank you!" Overcome with emotion, Myth began bawling, but it was happy tears. Happy smiles and happy tears to accompany this love fest.
Astrid had a huge smile on her face. "You are so welcome! Eeep, I just saw him and was like okay, if they don't instantly fall in love with his wittle paws and his witte smile then they're from Helheim!"
Bruce couldn't help but chuckle somewhat at Myth's reaction to the puppy. He also noticed how she didn't seem to have any reaction at all to the fact that it had wings. "...Well Astrid, never thought I'd be really happy at seeing one of your animals you bring places. The little guy is cute. Though where in all of the 9 realms did you get a dog that can fly?"
Myth had gone back to tuning everyone out and focused on her new puppy. "You are so cute! And wings? So useful! I'm going to love you as much as I love this being growing inside of me. And I will be yours forever and ever and if anyone tries to hurt you I will murder them where they stand because I love you so much!" She hugged the pup one more time before setting it down. She composed herself to the best of her ability.
"Sorry, what were we talking about?"
"Brucey, if I told you, I'd have to kill you," Astrid said with a wink, pleased with how much Myth loved the puppy. It was definitely going to be Myth's dog and not Bruce's, that much was obvious from the first few minutes.
"...How many times have I told you not to call me that Astrid..." he mumbled. Bruce did not like it at all when his siblings called him that, it got really annoying really quickly.
"Come on Brucey it isn't so bad..." Nova said with a giggle, and Bruce rolled his eyes slightly at her.
"Brucey? And it annoys you? Oh, this is good information to have. Don't piss me off love, I got some tricks in my pocket. Happy wife, happy life and all that."
"I think it was forty two times, Brucey," Astrid said with a giggle and a wink at Myth. "Oh the things we could tell you about him..."
"Oh you are one to talk about things Astrid, I do remember the incident involving the dalmatians, or have you forgotten that? How many did you have show up out of the blue like that? Or just about any other crazy creature you've had appear out of nowhere? Honestly, I at least didn't cause a lot of problems unless I got mad or something," Bruce said with an eye roll, before he looked over at Myth. "I do let a few people call me that on occasion, just not my siblings."
Myth would still use this information to her advantage when the time came. "I better be one of those people then, if you know what's good for you." She continued her attention to her new puppy and scratched its belly. She was slowly losing track of time. Didn't they have a wedding to start getting ready for?
"Of course Myth," he said with a slight smile, before thinking about the fact that they had to get going, after all, they had to get ready for the wedding. "Uh, Myth, we really should get going... We have a wedding to prepare for..." he said, before he transported everyone in the room (puppy included) as well as anything they needed to grab, to Wizard Tower.
