what-the-thunder-struck asked for THORKI FLUFF RECS and was super nice to me about it, which is a thing I am weak to. Plus, it’s my shark week and fuck everyone if you don’t understand my need for fluffy, happy things when I’m in pain and just want nice things. So, this is all the warm, sunshiney stuff I enjoy and you can cram it if you just want your heart ripped out, I am not here for your bullshit today. (Shhh, come talk to me tomorrow, then we’ll cry over fic that rips our hearts out instead.) If you want more, I have a fluff fic tag (just ctrl+f for “fluff”), plus fluffy recs list one and fluffy recs list two to help you find more! ♥
Thor tries to court Loki. Loki decides to make it difficult.

There’s a beautiful stranger in town and Thor is hopelessly in love. Unfortunately for him, this stranger comes with secrets that will devastate them both. Or, in which Thor is a fumbling lovesick idiot and there’s too much Norse mythology for an actual AU.
“Thor’s hands were winding their way into Loki’s hair, effectively messing it up from its usual neatness. A few wisps escaped and stuck to Loki’s forehead because of the sweat accumulating it there. Suddenly everything was so, unbearably hot.”
For the following norsekink prompt: So, I’m sure that we’ve all been to that one restaurant with the waiter that bends over backwards to ensure the customer’s satisfaction, only to have completely rude customers trample all over that kindness.
And really, he wasn’t floating. But Thor made him feel that way, with his hair tightly braided in places, the plaits shimmering under the dull candlelight above them. He made him feel lightheaded with his well-fitted tunic of a deep maroon that grasped every inch of him like a starved lover. And Loki took another drink, because he shouldn’t be so suddenly and ridiculously attracted to his older brother, and shouldn’t be so excited by his admittedly unusual state of dress.
“He’s the most gifted player that I’ve ever seen in my life. I’ve seen a lot of people play. I’ve seen the (Rod) Lavers, I played against some of the great players – the Samprases, Beckers, Connors’, Borgs, you name it. This guy could be the greatest of all time. That, to me, says it all.” – John McEnroe
“This match was historic on many fronts as it saw Federer win a record-shattering seventeenth major title and a record-tying seventh Wimbledon championship. The victory was also historic as it caused Federer to depose Novak Djokovic as World No. 1 and break Sampras’ record of 286 weeks at the summit of men’s tennis. Additionally, Murray became the first British man to reach the final of Wimbledon since 1938, and was seeking to be the first British Wimbledon champion since 1936.”
