TITLE OF STORY: A World of Firsts CHAPTER NUMBER/TITLE/ONE SHOT: First Date AUTHOR: freudensteins-monster WHICH TOM/CHARACTER: Loki GENRE: Fluff, Humour 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: 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
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!
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

WHICH TOM/CHARACTER: Actor!Tom GENRE: Humour FIC
SUMMARY: You fly a lot. And I mean a LOT. You always know what to do
on a plane, but that doesn’t mean others would be acting the same. Did I
mention it’s one of the world’s longest non-stop flights? RATING: T 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.

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.

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.
TITLE OF STORY: A World of Firsts CHAPTER NUMBER/TITLE/ONE SHOT: First Kiss AUTHOR: freudensteins-monster WHICH TOM/CHARACTER: Loki GENRE: Fluff, Humour 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.
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.
