Thread: The Smith from the Far North
October 2nd, 2013 05:24 PM #6
Oh, I like Wayland too. The only reason I know about Wayland Smith and Herne the Huntsman is that I've read Susan Cooper's "The Dark is Rising" sequence, which does a superb job of making me feel at least slightly acquainted with all kinds of weird, haunting old British legends.
Funnily, I like the imagery of Wayland better with Theoden and the sound of Wayland better with Romulus. With Theoden, it's quite repetitive, but done right repetition can be a lovely thing. You've got some great Theoden combos. How about:
Romulus Wayland Herne (why not stick them both in there?)
Romulus Peter Wayland
Romulus Antony Wayland
Romulus Wayland Thor (three mythologies for the price of one!)
Romulus Wayland Hugh
Romulus Wayland Winterson (recalls the scene where Will Stanton meets the smith in the snowy forest of Old England)
Best wishes! I love finding new gems, or experiencing those moments where you see an old name with new eyes."He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names."

Completely forgot about this one! Thanks Aurora and Sorcie!
Aurora; I do love Romulus Wayland Thor! It's really cool and sexy. And Romulus Wayland Winterson, you're right, it absolutely reminds me of that scene. I haven't read those books in such a long time, but now I know what I'm going to start reading again tonight... Thank you!!!!My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014
