do you have any fic recs that are similar to damalur's "after the fall"? i am so completely obsessed with it's portrayal of loki/sif and i simply must have my fix of fics in the same vein. please and thank you!
Ah After the Fall by damalur is such a wonderfully epic tale of Loki and Sif’s relationship from childhood up until the coronation. Sooo good. The world building is really fabulous. I’m not 100% what exactly you’d qualify as similar, whether it’s the slow build of the relationship or the adventure and character development (or regression) but I can definitely recommend a few other fics that I think are epics to be cherished!
The warrior has fallen on a journey and is presumed dead. Sif must make it home to him, before it’s too late. I seriously bawled my eyes out reading this. All of her fics are great for punching you in the gut.
Snippet Sunday, from Chapter 3 of Relativity (because you all deserve more than six sentences).
A reminder that I am in class and working full-time, so the amount of free time I have to write has been dramatically cut. I’ll try to make it less than a month between chapters, though. I know a lot of you really want to know what happens next.
“We know there is a traitor working against us in Asgard who is arming and aiding criminals here, using knowledge of the Tesseract and other things only a few people have access to,” Sif replied quietly. “And Fury has not proven himself trustworthy. He is not the one we seek, but I cannot bring myself to give him every detail of our plans, either.”
“You think this is connected somehow?”
“I do not know.” Sif locked the door of the guest suite behind them and leaned against it for a moment, taking a breath. The door was solid at her back, and with the world shifting like sand under her, it was comforting to feel something so sturdy. “But it cannot be ruled out.”
“I do not like this,” Thor rumbled, his voice like low thunder in the distance. “I do not like not knowing who to trust.”
“Neither do I, Thor.” Sif sighed, feeling the absence of Loki keenly now. He was reviled by some for his furtive ways, but he would have known what to do in a heartbeat, while she could only use what she’d learned from him as best she could. “But we do what we must.”
