“I think I’ll just stay in.” You told them. “You sure?” Natasha asked. “Yeah, don’t feel like going out.” You said and they nodded. “We’ll bring you some pizza.” Tony said and you nodded. “Don’t watch the new Horror Story without me, I’ll kill you.” Clint threatened and you laughed.
“Okay. I’ll just wa-”
“Not New Girl. We’re watching it together.” Natasha told you. “Fine.” You groaned. “Or Walking Dead.” Steve told you. “Oh my God, anything else?” You asked. “Yeah, we’ve got to finish the new episode of Supernatural.” Tony said. “I hate all of you.” You groaned.
A few hours past and you were about to click on the next episode of How I Met Your Mother, when you saw a bright yellow beam on the outside of the penthouse. “The hell?” You said, standing up and running towards the light.
It began to fair and you saw those signature horns, then smiled. “Loki?” You asked. He turned around and you saw him smiling. “You’re alive?” You asked. “Thor said you died.” You told him. “You should know by now that death can’t stop me.” He said, walking towards you. “What are you doing here?” You asked. “Is it not your birthday?” He asked.
“How do you know?” You asked him. “You’re my best friend, Y/N.” He told you. “So, where’s the party?” He asked. “Ah, there isn’t one.” You told him. “Why not?” He asked. “The team is busy, didn’t want to cause trouble and-”
“It’s your birthday, Y/N and you deserve to have the best day of your life.” He said and you smiled. “Now, let’s get this party started.” He told you. “What if they come back?” You asked him.
He had a mischievous smile as his body began to glow a deep yellow. A second later, he was a cat. “You’re an idiot.” You said. “Meow.” He responded. “A gift card could have been enough.” You laughed.
You swallowed nervously as you adjusted you green Asgardian dress, wishing you felt more comfortable in it. This was your first visit to Asgard, and right after you arrived, Loki rushed you off to a guest room so you could prepare. You had come to formally meet his mother, but here you stood, wishing you could go back to Midgard. You loved Loki dearly, and knew that meeting Frigga was important, but still… you were a tightly wound bundle of nerves. Frigga was the queen of Asgard, so surely, she expected someone more exalted than a Midgardian hero to be her adopted son’s companion. You had spoken to Jane about Frigga before leaving, and while Frigga sounded like a wonderful woman, worry still flooded your mind. What worried you most of all was the risk that Odin would be present, and his opinion would influence Frigga’s. You had no doubt that Odin would disapprove of you, but you were aware of the animosity shared between him and Loki, so Frigga was the only one you intended on meeting.
You were drawn from your thoughts as your door opened, to reveal Loki in his classic Asgardian outfit. You smiled at each other, and he walked towards you to wrap his arms around your waist. He was such a cold and cruel man when you first met, but now, he was a crystalline oasis in your dangerous world, and you were very much so the same to him. You wrapped your arms around his shoulders and leaned against his chest, wishing you were better prepared before meeting his mother. He softly ran his fingers through your hair, knowing you were concerned.
“All is well, my darling… Frigga did not scorn Thor’s science woman, so I have no doubt that she will accept you in kind.” He reminded, and you nodded lightly, before he took your hand to lead you through the numerous palace halls.
You took a deep breath before entering the throne room, and you tightened your hold on Loki’s hand. He was amused by your worry, but he also was aware that meeting your significant other’s royal family would be difficult for someone average. He would never truly call you average, but you did have a far more humble upbringing than him. You came from a middle-class Midgardian family, and he and Thor were the only royals you had ever known.
“Ah, Loki, my son. It is so good to see you once more.” Frigga stated as she approached the two of you. She shared a brief hug with her son, before turning to you. You kept your posture perfect and bit your tongue, not wanting to say anything foolish. “And you must be the woman I’ve heard countless tales about. Lady [Y/N], correct?” She continued, and you glanced at Loki in surprise. A soft blush dusted his face, but he smiled at you with pride. You focused back on the queen, and smiled softly at her.
“[Y/N] is fine, my queen. It is an honor to meet you at last.” You stated courteously, and you bowed your head in respect. Frigga chuckled and placed one hand on your shoulder, and you looked at her with confusion and curiosity.
“You are Loki’s beloved, so there is no need for such formalities. I am Frigga to you, if you are [Y/N] to me. Now,” she proclaimed, before putting one hand on Loki’s back and one hand on yours. Frigga started to lead both of you through the palace, fully intending on spending the day with -she desperately hoped- her future daughter-in-law. “Tell me, have the two of you discussed living arrangements? Loki’s quarters are certainly spacious enough for two.”

Loki: Greetings, my love. I have a surprise for you. I’m sure you’ll love it! Please wait in your room.
Y/N: Really?! Thank you! You shouldn’t have. What is it? Tell me please!
Loki: A surprise, love.
Y/N: Can’t I have a hint? Please, please, please!
Loki: Tony is going to have a fit when he sees it, that’s for sure. Ehehehehe!
Loki: I’m going to try and sneak it in. Give me 10 minutes.
Y/N: … You didn’t get me a bilgesnipe, right?
Loki: I considered it but we already have Thor, one is enough. It’s a midgardian animal however.
Y/N: DOG? CAT? BUNNY? PARROT? A STRAY CLINT?
Loki: No, my love.
Loki: At times I really do question your friendship with Barton…
Y/N: Speaking of which, he’s trying to enter the chat. What did you put the password as?
Loki: Don’t worry, he’ll never guess it.
Clint has joined the chat.
Loki: What sorcery….
Clint: Y/N WHY ARE YOU IGNORING MY TEXTS
Clint: I SENT YOU MEMES THAT I NEED YOUR APPROVAL ON
Clint: I FARMED THESE MEMES MYSELF
Clint: Get it? Because I have a farm.
Clint: You… are dating Loki?
Y/N: No! Who said that?
Loki: Er, why would you think that Y/N and I are courting?
Clint: “My love.” A private chat. Surprises! I’m deaf not blind!
Y/N: … We’re really close friends?
Clint: YOU ONLY TALK TO Y/B/F LIKE THAT!
Loki: I’m one of Y/N’s best friends?
Clint: YOU SHUT YOUR LYING MOUTH!
Clint: I’M ONE OF Y/N’S BEST FRIENDS, YOU ARE CERTAINLY NOT ONE OF THEM
Clint: Also what kind of stupid password is “LokiLaufeysonIsTheFutureAndRightfulKingOfAsgardWithHisQueenY/N”?
Y/N: Really babe, really?!
Clint: Seriously judging you, Loki.
Y/N: Of all the possible passwords!
Clint: At least add numbers to make it more challenging!
Loki: It’s a good password! Thor would never guess it!
Clint: Wait, wait, wait. We’re moving off topic. Y/N, how could you not tell me you’re dating this ice sculpture?
Y/N: I was going to! I was just waiting for the right time. Please don’t tell anyone yet! They’re not going to take it well.
Clint: You’re dating a psychopath, of course they won’t!
Loki: I’m not a psychopath,
I’m a highly functioning sociopath.
Clint: Don’t taint Sherlock!
Clint: So, I’m the only one who knows about this?
Loki: Yes, thank Odin.
Clint: It would be a shame
Clint: If the others found out
Y/N: DON’T YOU DARE!
Clint: If only there were donuts to keep my mouth shut
Clint: But there aren’t any…
Clint: Maybe I’ll add the team and ask them if they have any.
Y/N: How many do you want?
Clint: A DOZEN EVERY WEEK FOR THE NEXT 3 MONTHS!
Y/N: Loki, love. Get Clint some donuts, please?
Loki: … Fine.
Clint: And I want to go to Asgard.
Loki: I’ll see what I can do.
Clint: I want the fancy armor too!
Loki: Of course.
Clint: And your helmet.
Loki: Absolutely not!
Clint: Let’s ask the team how they’re doing, shall we?
Y/N: I hate you.
Clint: Love you too, Y/N.
Loki: The helmet is yours but nothing else! Do we have a deal?
Clint: Deal. Remember, hurt my lovely Y/N and you will regret it!
Thor has joined the chat.
Clint: I didn’t tell him.
Thor: Brother! You are courting Lady Y/N?!
Y/N: It’s a good password, you said. Thor would never guess it, you said.
Thor: How could you keep this from me! We are family!
Thor: Did you think I would not be happy for you?
Loki: Do you approve?!
Thor: Of course I do! Lady Y/N is a wonderful person, I could think of no one else better than her for you. Hearty congratulations brother!
Loki: I am surprised… Thank you… Brother.
Thor: But Lady Y/N, I must offer my most sincere and heartfelt apologies to you as my brother is far from wonderful.
Y/N: Don’t worry, Thoreo! Loki has been a marvelous boyfriend.
Clint: So far… And when he messes up, I will be there to fight him.
Loki: Why do you have a cute nickname for Thor…?
Loki: And dammit, Barton! I love Y/N. I would NEVER hurt her.
Thor: We must celebrate! I shall ask Stark to take us to one of the finest dining places on Midgard.
Y/N: THOREO NO
Loki: YOU OAF, DON’T LET ANYONE ELSE KNOW!
Thor has added Tony.
Thor: Better now than never!
Thor has left the chat.
Clint: I’m still getting my donuts despite Tony knowing, right?
Loki: … A chat?
Y/N: …. Surprise!
Tony: Did you cast a spell on Y/N? Is it blackmail? Y/N you can tell me!
Y/N: Tony. I know this must be hard to accept but… Loki and I are in love.
Tony: MY ARC REACTOR HURTS! I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS
Y/N: He’s no longer the man who tried to take over New York and who threw you off a building. Give him a chance, please!
Loki: My love, I know that you are trying to resolve the situation, but perhaps try not to mention my past misdeeds?
Clint: Are we at the part where Tony shoots him with his little blasty things?
Tony has added Natasha, Steve, Bruce.
Clint: We’re all going to kick his ass? I’ll get my bow.
Loki: I thought you were on our side, Barton!
Clint: I still didn’t get my donuts.
Tony: Steve, do something!!
Natasha: I can’t believe I’m saying this but, I think their relationship is good.
Y/N: But Nat, you just found out?
Natasha: I’m a spy, remember?
Tony: Don’t… encourage them!
Natasha: Ever since they started dating, Loki has been nicer, more kind. Less creepy and evil. Which is really good for us.
Steve: Natasha has a point. I don’t think Loki would jeopardize his relationship with Y/N by trying to take over the world and he seems to love her a lot, I don’t think he’d do anything to hurt or upset her.
Tony: HAVE YOU PEOPLE GONE MAD?!
Clint: … Tony. I think we’ve entered an alternate dimension.
Y/N: Stevie, you’re taking this really well…
Steve: Natasha told me about you and Loki as soon as you two started dating.
Clint: BUT NOT ME??????????
Y/N: Awwww you guys, you knew this whole time and didn’t make a big deal about it unlike a certain bird and billionaire here. Thank you Nat and Stevie <3
Steve: Oh I’m trying my best not to punch Loki.
Nat: Not a day goes by when I don’t want to shoot him.
Loki: I can’t blame them.
Steve: But he makes you happy.
Nat: And you make him a better person, so we grudgingly approve.
Loki: Banner, you’re more quiet than usual…
Bruce: I’m just thinking.
Tony: He’s trying to think of ALL THE WAYS TO HURT YOU IF YOU HURT Y/N!
Bruce: Tony is right.
Loki: I will gladly accept becoming one with the floor if I dare hurt Y/N, which I would never.
Y/N: Soooooooo, now that everyone knows, can you all leave?
Tony: WE WILL NEVER GIVE YOU TWO PRIVACY AFTER THIS!
Y/N: Love, did you uh, manage to bring in my surprise?
Loki: Oh yes, ehehehehehehehehe.
Steve: When he laughs/types like that, it means he’s up to something bad.
Loki: I’m feeding it first and then I’ll bring it up to your room.
Tony: What surprise?
Tony: Feeding it?!
Tony: Look, we have enough strays. We took in Loki and Bucky, we can’t take in more.
Nat: What is it?
Bruce: I’m kinda curious too. Spill.
Scott has joined the chat.
Scott: WHY DOES LOKI HAVE A LEMUR
Scott: A LEMUR
Scott: Also, gross. Y/N, why him?
Y/N: DARLING, YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE!
Y/N: NO SERIOUSLY, I’M QUITE CONFLICTED ABOUT THIS
Loki: I remembered how after watching that movie… Madagascar? You said you thought the lemur was cute. Do you not like it?
Clint: Can I pet it?!
Tony: NO WILD ANIMALS IN ME BASE
Scott: THIS LEMUR DOES NOT LIKE ME
Scott: I swear it wants to start a fight
Scott: DO YOU THINK I’M LYING
Scott: AIFPHWEH G GNLKREG
Scott has been disconnected.
Y/N: Is he okay?!
Loki: It attacked him.
Natasha: … I’m not breaking that fight up.
Clint: Who shall come out as the victor? Scott or King Julien II?
Bruce: Probably the lemur.
Tony: I guess we can keep the lemur? Just make sure to keep it out of the lab and my room.
Tony has left the chat.
Steve: I should help Scott…
Steve has left the chat.
Loki: What shall we name him, love?
Clint: I’VE ALREADY NAMED HIM
Y/N: Clint’s name is good.
Loki: Alright, we shall name him Clint.
Y/N: No, I meant King Julien II
Loki: Ehehehe Clint it is!
Clint: .. I’m kinda touched, not gonna lie. Clint Jr. So cute.
Bruce: So now we have a lemur, a raccoon, a hawk, an ant, two spiders, a panther and a falcon.
Bruce: … Can we get a penguin next?
Natasha has left the chat.
Bruce has left the chat.
Clint: What a great day.
Clint has left the chat.
Loki: Finally! I thought they’d never leave.
Y/N: If you’re done settling in Clint Jr. can you come to my room where I’ve been waiting for the past 20 minutes for you?
Loki: To thank me, I presume? ;)
Sam has joined the chat.
Sam has added Bucky.
Loki: STOP IT, YOU IMBECILES!
Sam: OF ALL THE HUNKS ON THIS TEAM,
Bucky: YOU CHOOSE HIM?
Sam: I’m insulted, Y/N.
Bucky: If you ever break up with him Y/N, you know where to find me.
Sam: And me.
Sam has left the chat.
Bucky has left the chat.
Loki: Would you be upset if I set Clint Jr. upon them?
Loki: Consider it, please.
Loki: Clint Jr. has stopped his attack on the bug man. See you soon, love.
Glittering gold and magic surrounded you, as you became an official member of the royal Asgardian family. Frigga futilely fought back tears as she watched her adopted son find the happiness he deserved, Thor grinned brightly as Loki lovingly accepted the responsibilities as your husband, and even Odin felt a shred of pride towards the Jotun-Asgardian he raised as a son, despite their fervent fallout.
A magnificent feast followed soon after, and the friends you had come to know celebrated with jubilation. The joy was mostly directed towards you, due to tense relations with Loki, but both of you retained loving smiles. Matching golden bands resided on your ring fingers, with yours housing emeralds, and his housing jewels that reflected your [E/C] eyes. The gazes of many fell upon your new rings, which often still held skepticism. Loki had been a powerful criminal and threat to worlds, and you were a champion of Midgard, who had been accepted into Asgard long ago. The Golden Apples of Idun had granted you with an Asgardian lifespan, and you were still endlessly grateful to Thor for aiding you in gaining one of those sacred fruits. The first news of your courting with the royal sorcerer had shocked the kingdom, as you were meant to be enemies. However, your solitary souls found solace with one another, no longer alone in a world of Asgardians.
Sif gripped your arm opposite to Loki, and readily began informing you of new training lessons you would need to partake in, both for fun and regality. You simply chuckled when she made it very clear that she expected you to be the one to clean Loki’s future messes, and you waved her off amicably. Loki grinned at you, knowing you enjoyed his mischievous side, despite the discouragement from others. Fandral passed by and attempted to ask for a dance, but Loki scared him off with a low growl. You loved Loki’s protectiveness, though you did feel bad for your friend. Fandral had learned long ago that he wasn’t your type, and in truth, he had become somewhat of a brotherly figure since you grew closer to the Asgardian royals. Volstagg was off devouring the feast, and while you didn’t see him, you knew you would hear his praises of the meal eventually. Hogun watched you and Loki from a distance, though his lips quirked up in approval.
As music filled the halls, Loki pulled you from bustling feast so you could share in a dance. His lithe body was as graceful as ever, and while you weren’t the best dancer, the two of you moved together as if it was your purpose. Loki raised your hands to his lips as the music slowed, and pressed several kisses to your fingers, before leaving a lingering kiss on your ring. Despite yourself, you blushed at the gesture. You had seen Loki vastly change over the years, but despite his achievements and failures, he had always been a man you held close to your heart.
A knowing smile graced Frigga’s lips as she watched the two of you, however, knowing this ceremony was more for the kingdom than either of you. She had assisted Loki in perfecting a spell that had worked marvelously on the skin beneath your rings, where faint tattoo-like designs were your true marriage bonds, done prior to your actual wedding. The everlasting marks bound you together, holding a stronger meaning than any metal band could. Your lives were to be filled with battle, journey, diplomacy, and echoes of past misdeeds, and yet, neither of you held reservations about spending thousands of years side by side.
Imagine that you and Loki are both single parents. Your 10-year-old son and Loki’s son become the best of friends. As the both of them spend more time together, so do you and Loki. 2 years later, you both begin to fall in love with each other.
