is Skuld.

She woke me up this morning to tell me she wanted to let Katherine know she should bring the first Scooby Doo live-action movie with her today. “Time to get up!”

“We have that,” I said.

“I know, but I broke it,” she said.

“Well, go find it.”

“But I broke it!”

“Go find it anyway!”

So she spent fifteen minutes looking for it, in tears almost the whole time. After that, we had a discussion about how frustrating it was to be made to do something that wasn’t really very important…

Being the inventor that she is, Skuld loves anything technical, but hates inefficiencies, flawed creations, and useless mechanics (such as toys). This is Urd’s favorite way of punishing Skuld whenever she touches or breaks any of Urd’s potions and such, by making her create gadgets that do absolutely nothing useful. She has a tendency to get carried away fixing or improving anything she sees inefficient. Even when her original intention is to destroy it, she always ends up with something much better, (and usually more destructive). Most of her inventions, more often than not, have extra functions that make situations more complicated, including a self-destruct device in almost everything (including her Robot Wars robot…).
