Sorry for taking so long to update, but chapter 4 is finally here!
It took me a while simply because this story, The Legend of Beowulf, is such an epic (I'm only telling the first part) it took me a while to figure out how to condense it into something shorter, and also a while to decide that I wanted to take on Beowulf of all things. I really love not just the story, but everything surrounding it. Its like Britain's biggest connection to it's ancestors in so many ways, so it feels like something special to me.
I was actually originally going to do 'George and the Dragon' for this chapter, but I looked up the story and realised it wouldnt be appropriet at all, so decided on Beowulf instead. I basically wanted a 'hero' story thats well known in England. George and the Dragon is well known (duh St. Georges day) but as I read the story I realised how it doesnt have much connection to England, and I didnt like the story very much either (a bit boring, just your usual 'damsel in distress' thing, no littler lessons/morals or anything fun).

And apologies if the text is not understandable, I wanted to do a more 'direct' translation from the Saxon writings. Beowulf is basically saying: "Grendel doesnt use weapons against anyone, so I wont use weapons against him. If I die, so be it, God will decide if its my time to go or not."

Thanks for your comments guys ^_^

@Mimi-Evelyn yay thank you! I'll put it up at the end of this chapter <3 Of course its okay!! I dont mind at all, I just know some people are a bit self concious about their non-finished work, so I asked.

@Ushiocomics XDD I opted for Tintin too! Watched it yesterday, and it was AWESOME! It was exactly what I expected to be, as such I really enjoyed it...Captain Haddock was as hilarious as I find him in the comics (or what I've read of the comics haha)

@eternalbeliever12 XD wow! Thank you for buying it at Expo =3
