At the 14th Saga Conference, Carrie Roy presented a paper on the meaning of the gripping- beast motif in Viking Period culture. Roy leveled serious criticism against her peers, including the co-authors of this note, declaring them victims of their own subjectivity. In Fornvännen 2012:1, we responded to criticism that Carrie Roy had directed towards us in print. The matter appeared especially urgent as her account contained errors of fact and misquotations that did injury to fellow researchers. Thus, the main focus of our reply was on academic craftsmanship. Reading Roy's reply in Fornvännen 2012:2, we noted with regret that she remains set in her ways, rather than admitting human error. Therefore, we felt compelled to compose a final reply.
