Prompt: "Baldr finds himself flipping between two realities; one in which he is the god of light beloved by all and one in which he is a demigod warlord. In one Hod is his blind brother, in the other his mortal enemy (in both senses). In one Nanna is his devoted wife, in the other he's obsessively in love with her but she chooses Hod.
In other words he's flipping between the Eddic version of his story and the Gesta Danorum.
But which is real, and can he sort out what's going on before he winds up dead in both?
Bonus: Baldr's two personalities start to bleed together and do solve some of the problems in both realities. For instance his calmness as god of light helps his warlord self not make himself sick obsessing over Nanna; his warlord self overcomes his god of light passivity and isn't willing to stand around having things thrown at him just because he's invulnerable."
Un sogno, o forse un ricordo, o forse una profezia.
