Ahhhh, finally a true Valkyrie, armored and armed.
Dark, waiting for you to die (or provoking it) in battle, and not a slut half naked pictured to make you fantasize...
Like it :)

Does that make Conan or He-Man a slut since they never wear much more than their swim trunks?

He-man has a really wel known video about his "maleness" attitude that answers to your reply :)

I can appreciate valkyries with few clothes as long as the spirit of the "chooser of the slain" is kept, and many pictures show them as "bimbos in armors" but without the fear they deserve.

I just didn't like tha tone which seemed 2 imply that any warrior woman that uses bikini-mail is a slut as a double standard & say nothing of tha plenty of warrior men that wear even less AND have no metal to protect themselves on top of that!

U say it isn't like that so would U mind educating me on these "warrior-sluts" N which U abhor so greatly so that I may C em from UR view? I should also mention I have a group made 2 house women of varying degrees of armor/muscularity/weaponry!

I don't tell that a woman wearing bikini-mail is a slut.
I searched many pictures of valkyries on the web, i want to tatoo one on my back.
And i can note that some pictures show the sexiness of valkyries but without the "fear" aspect, they choose dead warriors and sometimes cause them to die, they are supposed to have a strong will, not to be  submissive.
I dont talk about "barbarian" style valkyries with bikini mail, as long as the warrior spirit is preserved.
But sometimes you can only figure that it's only a pretext to show a naked woman to make fantasize (naked AND submissive, ridiculously enormous breasts...)
Damn, in the nordic myths, their names are always linked to WAR, not sex:…

They collect the souls of the fallen one, they bring death, they are not pornstars.

That's my point of view, that's why i told i like this valkyrie and prefer it over "valkyries-sex-slave-style" which are not in the "spirit".

That was somehow insightful & more confusing than before BUT I did understand "as long as the warrior spirit is preserved" so we may actually have tha same views!

I may have said B4 that I run a group that focuses on warrior women but we frequently come under attack for having women N bikini-mail or even naked because "Armor" is in tha title but they don't realize that warrior women from long ago would actually fight naked(or so it is archived)AND they don't recognize tha "warrior spirit" still prevalent N nearly every deviation we take BUT we do take Weapon Women as well and some nearly/completely naked Muscle Women R actually just there sitting pretty being as sexy as sin but they tend 2 ignore our Muscle Women "division" altogether!
