The Forge and the Flame was a virtual representation of one of Eivor Varinsdottir's genetic memories, relived by Basim Ibn Ishaq in 2020 through the Portable Animus HR-8.5.


Gunnar asked Eivor if she could officiate his wedding to Brigid as the Raven Clan's new jarlskona.


Eivor approached Gunnar at his forge.

  • Eivor: About you and Brigid. When do you wish to be wed?
  • Gunnar: The sooner I can make her my wife, the happier I will be. But we are fine to wait until everything has settled here.
  • Eivor: Enough waiting! Cool your forge and cover your anvil. Let's get you married.
  • Gunnar: Wonderful! Shall we gather everyone?
  • Eivor: Gather your wife and your courage. I'll bring the people together.

Eivor gathered the residents of Ravensthorpe for the ceremony. An impromptu chapel was quickly built on a clifftop, with a large wooden platform set on the ground and featuring a large red carpet making up the central aisle. An archway was erected at the end, decorated with flowers and flanked on either side by the Raven Clan banner and lit braziers on smaller red carpets.

With everyone present, Eivor walked from where she stood beside Sigurd and Valka to where Brigid and Gunnar were beneath the arch. She looked Gunnar in the eye and spread her arms, silently asking if she could proceed. After a quick glance to Brigid, Gunnar nodded in firm conviction and Eivor dipped her head in turn.

With everyone present, Eivor walked from where she stood beside Valka to where Brigid and Gunnar were beneath the arch. She looked Gunnar in the eye and spread her arms, silently asking if she could proceed. After a quick glance to Brigid, Gunnar nodded in firm conviction and Eivor dipped her head in turn.

  • Eivor: I am honored to stand before you, Gunnar, Brigid, on this bountiful day. To celebrate the strength of your bond and see you wed. I am in witness of a love that inspires and empowers. I invite you, now, to speak your vows.

Eivor stepped aside as Gunnar and Brigid turned to each other. Gunnar withdrew a sword from his belt.

  • Gunnar: To you, my darling, Brigid, I offer this blade, forged in flames that burn as brightly as my heart does for you. A blade as sharp as your wit, as glinting as your beauty. May it sing through the air as sweetly as your voice meets my ears.
  • Brigid: (unintelligible) (Gods, how I adore you, Gunnar. I am ever so luck to have found you, my love.)
  • Gunnar: And I you. I give you my sword and my promise that I will stand at your side forever.

Gunnar handed Brigid the sword.

  • Brigid: (unintelligible) (Long have I dreamed of my own future, and sought solace in hope and premonition. But no amount of scrying or foresight prepared me for the sweeping adventure of meeting you.)

Brigid handed the sword back to Gunnar.

  • Brigid: (unintelligible) (You are a soul like none other. A man as strong as he is gentle and as kind as he is fierce. My hear soars alongside yours.)

In the congregation, Valka looked at Randvi and spread her hands in confusion, though Randvi shook her head in disagreement, quietly motioning to be civil and not interrupt the vows.

  • Gunnar: Such poetry, O dear! You make me cry, my love.

Brigid produced a bracelet from her cloak and presented it to Gunnar.

  • Brigid: (unintelligible) (Let us fly together, through this life and beyond.)
  • Gunnar: I offer you this ring, and take yours in kind. I will wear it with pride and honor, warmed by the love of so perfect a lady.

They traded bracelets and put them on, before holding hands.

  • Brigid: (unintelligible) (And I will wear it with love, adoration, and faith everlasting.)
  • Gunnar: This is the greatest day of my life! Embrace me, my love!

The couple kissed as the resident cheered.

  • Eivor: With our couple now bonded in matrimony... now we drink!

The residents started to mingle and Eivor saw Randvi make a motion for her to follow. Not wanting to leave so soon after her duty as officiant, Eivor briefly joined the celebrations to talk with the guests, starting with Alvis.

  • Eivor: Alvis, I am surprised you did not serenade the bride and groom with a verse or two.
  • Alvis: O, I wished to, I did. But all that came to me were insults and jibes. Another time, I think.

Eivor approached the newly married couple.

  • Eivor: Brigid. I gift you a formal welcome to our clan and our family. You are a fine addition to Gunnar's life and to ours.
  • Brigid: (unintelligible) (Thank you, Eivor. I couldn't be happier to be here. I hope to know you better in the coming months and years.)
  • Eivor: Yes... of course, I... as I say, it is wonderful to have you.

She turned to Gunnar.

  • Eivor: Gunnar, you old trout... you're a married man. Never thought I would see the day.
  • Gunnar: Nor did I. And not for lack of trying.

Eivor approached her brother.

  • Eivor: It is a strange feeling, Brother. Weddings are the beginning of something, but this feels like something of an end.
  • Sigurd: The first happy union in our home. We have matured into something greater, so yes... a beginning and an end, I think.

Eivor walked towards Hytham.

  • Eivor: And how are the marriage customs in your country, Hytham? Something like this?
  • Hytham: Like this in all the most important ways. There are smiles, cheers and warm embraces. All that is needed, I think.

Eivor approached Reda.

  • Eivor: You've been among us for quite some time, Reda. Are you ready to settle? Make a home here?
  • Reda For a year or two, perhaps. But I am not the settling kind. I am a wanderer, always searching, never finding. Maybe one day.

Eivor approached Valka.

  • Eivor: Valka. I want to thank you for all you have done for me. My visions have lessened of late, and I... well, I find it hard to explain how different I feel. Grounded. Unified. At peace.
  • Valka: That is good to hear, Eivor. Very good to hear.

Finally, Eivor went to talk with Randvi.

  • Eivor: Randvi... Saw you looking a little lonely. Thought I might come and join you.
  • Randvi: How nice. Are you enjoying yourself?
  • Eivor: I am. I never thought I would see gruff old Gunnar so enraptured by a woman.
  • Randvi: Enraptured by anything, for that matter. He's a hard one to read. But I am pleased for him. And for this day of rest and respite. After everything, a few days of feasting will do the people some good. They need this.
  • Eivor: They do.
  • Randvi: Will you walk with me?
  • Eivor: Anywhere. Lead on.

Randvi started walking, with Eivor keeping up with her.

  • Randvi: Something has been on my mind for some time. I am no seer, but I foresaw this day long ago. Not Gunnar's marriage, but our situation. Our success.
  • Eivor: How do you mean our success?
  • Randvi: I mean to say that I saw our settlement flourishing, through our victories in war and in diplomacy. And from the day we set out from Norway, I knew that you would make a fitter leader than Sigurd. It was never in his character to lead. It was always within yours.
  • Eivor: I see.
  • Randvi: Do you?
  • Eivor: You might have warned me.
  • Randvi: You would not have listened.
  • Eivor: Fair.
  • Randvi: I do hope you see it now, in all that you have done for us.
  • Eivor: Randvi, you and the people here have done more for me than I could ever repay. I am honored by your faith in me. And your confidence.
  • Randvi: As I am honored by your love.
  • Eivor: And I by yours.

They arrived at a small river, and sat down beside each other on a log.

  • Randvi: Eivor, I want you to know that Sigurd and I are... We are severing the bonds of our marriage. We share a love that is steadfast. And I have faith it will forever be so, but my heart is yours. That much he knows. And I believe he is happy for us.
  • Eivor: Are you sure?
  • Randvi: Sigurd's desires are bigger than any man or woman can offer. He longs for something more, something only he can find.

She rose and walked for a moment, remaining close by.

  • Eivor: All he wants is far, far away. All I need is right here.

Eivor rose and walked towards Randvi for a kiss.

  • Randvi: Shall we find our way back to the wedding? Brigid might give another speech. We must not miss that.
  • Eivor: About that... I have not understood a single word of hers since Glowecestrescire!
  • Randvi: Really. I find she speaks beautifully. With poetry, even.
  • Eivor: Are you kidding?
  • Randvi: Am I?

They shared a soft smile.

  • Randvi: Come, we should go.


Gunnar and Brigid were married. After the ceremony, Eivor and Randvi reflected on their feelings for each other.
