I just got done reading a couple of soulmark fics. You know, that thing where the first thing your soulmate will say to you is written somewhere on your body. It’s a pretty cool idea, and I was thinking about how it could be applied to Lokane.
It would be great, because Loki is already over a thousand years old when he meets Jane. That means he could have gone centuries looking at his arm or his shoulder, wondering what the hell a ‘New York’ is and what he’s going to do that makes his soulmate want to avenge it.
Thor and the W4 spend ages teasing him over how weird his soulmark is, until finally, the day comes when Thor brings Jane to Asgard, and without missing a beat, she walks right up to Loki, punches him, and says, ‘That was for New York!”
And then, everything just goes dead quiet. Thor is in shock, Sif feels like maybe she should leave before the fight breaks out, and Loki is just like, ‘Seriously? This tiny mortal woman is my soulmate? Well, at least she’s pretty, and intelligent, and she was Thor’s which means I just stole her out from under his nose and he’s going to be so mad! Awesome! Best soulmate ever!’
Meanwhile, Jane is having a bit of a crisis, because she’s always figured that her soulmate must be either world famous or some kind of arrogant jerk if the first thing he ever says to her is that she’s already heard of him. Of course, it has to be a coincidence that Loki just said those words. There’s no way, if there really is a god up there, that he would be so cruel as to make a potential world conquering maniac her soulmate. It simply can’t be so, but then he’s giving her that look and that smile and what she just said couldn’t possibly have been his soulmark, right?
Why does Thor look like he wants to cry?
And while she’s freaking out, Loki is just standing there, whistling innocently and planning the honeymoon.
