So, Loki told me a story today. It involves him, Bragi, and Sága. Here's the story, who knows how it will be viewed by the community at large.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~

There once was a skald with a terrible problem stuttering. His problem was so severe it threatened to rob him of his livelihood. In deep anguish, the skald turned to the gods and begged them for aid. First he went to Sága. Sága took honey and put it upon his lips. The skald went about his work and found that his stutter remained.

The skald went to Bragi and begged him for help. Bragi caught and gave him the blood of nine songbirds to drink. The skald went about his work. Much to his despair, the stutter continued.

In desperation, the skald called upon Loki. Loki came to him in his home. He took up a hot coal from the fire and pressed it to the skald's lips. The sklad jumped up with a shout and demanded to know why Loki harmed him. And then he realized, much to his amazement, his stutter was gone. And that stutter remained gone for the rest of his life.
