WARNINGS/TRIGGERS/AUTHORS NOTES: This is the prize for my 1000 Follower Giveaway winner, lolomonster​, who requested a modern AU. Originally my brain went Loki-in-a-suit » FSOG, but I haven’t read/seen it so I couldn’t parody it properly like I wanted to. Then I saw this artwork by thetallsara​ (true, it’s a modern AU of Hades and Persephone, but I see some parallels between them and Logyn, even if no one else does) and thus the idea was seeded.

Anywho, lolomonster, I hope you like it, even if it didn’t up being what I originally planned. xoxox    

First Date | First Kiss | First Love

I hate Thursdays, Loki grumbled as headjusted his green and grey tie for the umpteenth time. Every time he put onhis suit (the less formal of the two that he owned) he regretted agreeing towork one day a week at his father’s Fortune 500. It was a joke really, but oneday a week spent in the IT department kept his father off his back and freed up the rest of his time for study and working part time in a used bookstore that he loved (and planned to buy when the owner retired - not that he’d tell his father that). The crosswalk sign turned green and Loki moved with the herd of nine-to-fivers on their way to get their mid-morning caffeine fixes.

As Loki waited for his name to be called, he fidgeted with his tie again before moving to the sleeves of his white dress shirt and folding them back. He was going over all the things he needed to get done that day if he wanted to keep his father away from his cubicle when the most amazing scent began to chase away seemingly indelible smell of coffee. It reminded him of the gardens at their house in Paris, the one his mother insisted on keeping maintained even though they visited maybe once every five years. Loki glanced casually about him until he spotted the source – a beautiful girl with flowers in her wild brown hair, a green florist’s apron around her waist, eyes the colour of warm honey, and Oh god, she caught me staring!

Loki almost gave himself whiplash as he turned fixed his eyes on the espresso machine, his fair complexion turning lobster red as the seconds ticked by at an excruciating pace.

WHICH TOM/CHARACTER: Actor!Tom

AUTHORS NOTES/WARNINGS: This is such a fun prompt!  I hope you guys like it and if you do, don’t forget to click the little heart :)

You are a frequent flyer, one who always does long hauls.

Obviously you know getting a seat with nobody sitting behind you is essential.  However, you bought the tickets too late, and he’s been kicking the back of your seat for – you check the time – 35 minutes now.  You don’t even think he realizes what he’s doing.  You’ve tried everything to hint at him to stop.

But nope.

FEEDBACK/COMMENTS: Follow up to Awkward. Beta’d/prompted by ladyaudiophile.

I sighed before changing for the third time. I had started with sexy lingerie and then a flirty nightdress but now, after waiting several hours, I was now slumped on my bed in a plain t-shirt and pyjama pants.

It had been a few weeks since Tom and I had bumped into each other on the street and we had been dating, albeit casually, for over a month. Tom had dropped by earlier in the afternoon with an overnight bag before heading off to an awards ceremony, with the promise of staying the night and spending a lazy Sunday with me. But it was well past midnight now and Tom was still a no show. I was just about to give up completely and try to get some sleep when my phone buzzed on the nightstand.

“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”

WARNINGS/TRIGGERS/AUTHORS NOTES: None. ladyaudiophile pointed me in the direction of the prompt. Unbeta’d.


Shit. Who the hell let me drink tequila? Whenever I drink tequila I dostupid things like booty call my ex. Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit.

I tucked my shirt into my pants in an attempt to look halfway decent before I grabbed my jacket and did a last minute sweep of my ex’s bedroom. Phone, keys, wallet… check, check, check. Shoes… shoes… I found one kicked under the bed and retraced our drunken, fumbling steps and found the second one sitting precariously on the stairs. Fully dressed, finally, I took a glance at myself in the hallway mirror – not a complete wreck but it was obvious to anyone with eyes that I’d had about two hours sleep and was wearing the same suit from last night (note the splash of appletini on my pants and the smudged makeup on my collar). I heard movement from upstairs and raced for the front door, trying to lock it behind me as quietly as possible. Not my proudest moment, I must say, but she’d understand. I hoped. She was recently single and on her second bottle of wine when I called. I’m sure she’d agree that if she had been sober she wouldn’t have let me come over. We didn’t work. We both knew that. We didn’t want to go through all that drama again. She’d understand. I hoped. Shit.

FIC SUMMARY: A modern AU take on the tale of Loki tricking Sigyn into marrying him by killing Theoric and taking his place.
RATING: T
WARNINGS/TRIGGERS/AUTHORS NOTES: Decided to continue this AU. Inspired by my giveaway winner and this artwork by thetallsara​. Beta’d by ladyaudiophile.

First Date | First Kiss | First Love

The impromptu movie date wentbetter than Loki could have hoped for. Not only did Sigyn seem to bear him noill will – or directly question him - over Theoric’s absence, but she was as funny and clever as she was beautiful. After the movie he drove her home - they talked the whole way – and exchanged numbers, but not before Loki asked Sigyn if she would like take a coffee break with him the next time he was at Borsons. Sigyn blushed – gods, she was so cute when she blushed – and said yes. They stared at each other for a moment but Loki hesitated long enough for the silence to grow awkward and Sigyn took it as a cue to thank him for the lift and exit his car.

“Idiot,” he muttered, hitting the steering wheel. “You should have kissed her.” He continued to berate himself all the way back to his apartment.

Loki did his best to stay his hand for the rest of the week, only texting Sigyn a few times – once to thank her for the lovely evening, once to confirm she could still meet him for coffee - and come Thursday he was nearly bursting out of his skin with excitement.

Loki could have slept all day ifit weren’t for Sigyn squirming beside him.

“What are you doing?” he asked drowsily.

“Trying to reclaim my arm.”
