Request: Can I request something where the reader is an avenger and also a vampire? But she’s very depressed. She loves her job but she’s getting lonely seeing everyone else with their significant others and she wants to feel loved. Later on Thor brings Loki along to a stark party and he’s bored and irritable until he sees the reader out on the balcony. They end up hitting it off right away and he helps pull her out of her depression.
Being around for almost 300 years was cool and all, being able to watch the world change around me. Meeting new people, and new lovers. I was use to change. Everything changed around me for years. But one thing I wasn’t use to, was being with a team of people, like the Avengers. When they learned of my kind actually existing, they wanted to see if they could find us, a vampire.
When they mistakenly found me, in the hospital, stealing blood bags. The person who found me was Bruce Banner. He alerted Tony Stark, and Tony followed me and convinced me to join the team. I only said yes, because I wanted to protect the world I’ve come to love.
“So you drink human blood?” The newest member Sam Wilson questioned
“Sam” Steve snapped at him
“What I’m just confused as to why she drinks human blood and lives here, not trying to be rude” He then apologized.
“No it’s okay” I smiled “You’re just curious, that’s all. You should learn on how to communicate.” I joked. “But yes I drink human blood, but I don’t drink from the neck. I drink blood bags. That way I’m not hurting anyone, and I’ve been on a diet. I mostly drink Animal blood, and once or twice every few weeks I drink human blood to stay strong.” I explained while pouring a bag of donated blood into my to-go water bottle.
There was an awkward moment of silence. Sam nodded understanding what I was saying. “So can you control yourself around fresh blood?” He asked
“Yes” I took a sip from my bottle. the normal thing for a vampire was there veins popping and eyes getting darker when drinking blood. “I built a tolerance over the years.” I was okay with answering the questions, I liked when people wanted to know more, it’s not often I could talk about myself truly.
I had been with the team for a little over 6 months. everyone trusted me and I trusted them. I would use my abilities for something good. I liked being able to do things and not have to do it in secrete. I was free to be me. But there was still one thing that bothered me. Even though I was on a team of “outcasts”, I stood apart from them. They trust me but everyone is still a bit uncomfortable with a vampire. When I was in the room, they were on high alert. Jarvis always made sure everyone new when I was coming.
I requested to have my room further away from the rest, which I ended up getting the floor they were working on to make more rooms to myself. I liked it that way, but I was always lonely even in a room full of people I was lonely. I was lonely for a long time.
I watched people fall in love, but I’ve never actually been in love. Human lives didn’t last quite as long as a vampires. So watching the team with their lovers broke my heart. I longed to be loved and in love. Natasha and Bruce, Tony and Pepper, Steve and Sharon, Wanda and Vision, etc. I wished to have what they had.
Later that same day, Thor showed up. He said that upon his arrival he will have brought someone that we will all “love” to have. He shoved a tall man into the room. He was wearing a leather green and black robe, his hair was long and black, his blue eyes scanned the room.
“This is my brother Loki.” Thor announced to the room. This was the famous brother of Thor who tried to rule Earth. Supposedly he wanted to redeem himself and wanted to prove himself worthy to Thor. But one of the main reasons he was here was so Thor could keep a close watch on him.
“Just stay out of trouble” Tony snapped at Loki. Thor introduced me and Sam to Loki. I stuck my hand out to shake his.
“I’ve heard so much about you and everyone else.” Loki looked me in the eyes “Lady y/n” He took my hand and kissed it. I was use to this kind of behavior from men, especially in England years ago. I smiled and bowed my head in respect. Which caught him by surprise, and I earned confused looks from the team.
“Then you must know of my kind, yes?” I questioned
“Indeed” Was all he said, “Where will I be sleeping?”
“On the roof” Tony snapped again.
“The same floor as me” I smiled “I’ll show you”
I went about my business as usual, making my way around the tower, by myself. I would stop to talk to whoever was in the same room, but the conversation quickly died down since I know that they wouldn’t want to talk to me any longer.
The only thing I wanted was to hold a conversation with someone, but I know how they feel about me, they trust me but they are always watching my move to make sure I don’t turn on them.
I made my way to the fridge to grab my animal blood bag, then pouring it into a glass. I felt a pair of eyes on me as I did all of this.
“Can I help you?” I asked.
“I was just looking for someone to talk to.” Loki spoke softly.
“Well seeing as no one here seems to trust you, or like you, I guess that leaves me to be the last resort?” I gave a soft smile.
“Well, not actually, I wanted to talk to you. I already know they don’t like me” He chuckled.
“Oh” Was all I could say. He slowly walked into the kitchen, observing the room. He had a disgusted look as he continued to walk around.
“So what’s your secrete?” He asked stopping so he was now standing next to me.
“Excuse me?” I turned to look at him
“How do you do it?” He asked “How do you live under the same roof as them when treated like you’re still a monster?” I was not expecting the question from him
“Well I-” I was cut off by Steve walking into the room
“Hey y/n, the mission you were suppose to go on has been changed. Sam and Bucky will be going. We need you to stay back to show Loki the ropes. He seems to like you.” Steve explained
“Okay” I spoke quietly, giving Steve a small nod before quickly leaving the room.
An hour later I could hear Loki making his way to my door. I opened it right before he could knock.
“Oh, where you expecting me?” He smirked looking down at my small figure.
“No” I answered “I heard you coming”
He looked confused
“Perks of being a Vampire, I can hear everything around me” this time I smirked at him, I took a step back allowing him to enter my room.
“Did I upset you earlier?” He asked concern in his voice
“No” I walked back towards my living room area. “I just didn’t want to talk about that with Steve there.”
“So lady y/n, how old are you really?” Loki asked
“326″ I smiled, being able to just talk was enough for me.
“So I guess you could say you are immortal?” Loki continued “You could live forever”
“I guess you could say that.” I made my way to my book shelf. “Do you like books?”
“Yes, have anything of interest?”
“Of course I do” I smiled, grabbing a random book “This is Jane Austen, one of my favorites, this book is called Pride and Prejudice.”
“I think we will get a long just fine” He smiled while taking the book out of my hand to look at it.
Ever since he came into my room, and stole a few books from me, we spent everyday with each other, either reading or talking about our lives and what it was like 300 years ago. We became pretty close. We spent most days in one of our rooms, away from the team unless it was dinner, a meeting, training, a mission, or game/movie night.
Tonight was movie night and everyone, except Sam Loki, was in the theater, we decided to watch The Notebook, since most of us haven’t seen it. I sat on a two-seater sofa by myself. Tony was with Pepper, Nat and Bruce, Steve and Sharon, Bucky and his random girlfriend, Thor was next to Clint,and Wanda and Vision. I watched the team as I purposely sat away from them. I knew that I made most uncomfortable, but everyone tried to include me into movie and game night.
I watched the movie, wishing I had someone to love me the way the characters loved each other. I watched as the old man told the old women the love story of the two teens who fell in love. I happened to look away from the TV to see all of the coupled paying attention to each other and not the TV, deciding I had enough of this, I made my way out of the room only to be stopped by Tony announcing that I was leaving.
“Y/N why do you gotta go? We not good enough?” He joked
“Just tiered” I said before I walked off. I heard Tony whisper
“I thought Vampires don’t sleep?” I rolled my eyes and made my way to my room. We do sleep, I just stay up super late.
Once I made it to my room, I quietly shut my door not wanting Loki to know I was back in my room. I wanted to be alone. I wanted to cry, I hated not having someone to be with, I wanted to know what it was like to be in love and to be loved. I laid down in my bed as tears began to fall. I curled up into a ball on my bed.
As I continued to quietly cry, I suddenly felt my blanket go over my shoulders. I stiffened at the touch of a hand rubbing my shoulder.
I wiped the tears away as I sat up and scooted over allowing him to sit down next to me. I told him everything, how I lived 300 years alone, scared to be in love since human lives don’t last as long and a Vampire who doesn’t age, how I’m tiered of being alone and no one understanding me.
“You are not alone. I know exactly what you are going through, I mean I age, but not like a human, But I’m always lonely.” He wrapped an arm around me.
“I just want to be wanted.” I piratically whispered.
“You are” I squeezed me. “I want you”
“Really?” I gave him a funny look
“Yes” He nodded “On Asgard everyone avoids me, hates me, no one wants to be with me, same this Midgard, then I met this women who treated me as an equal, she dismissed everything I had done and gave me a chance.”
“Maybe because she knows what it’s like to be the monster.” I looked up into his eyes. He didn’t say anything else. He just looked at me. His eyes flickered to my lips and then back to my eyes. I took the opportunity to move in for a kiss. At first he didn’t react so I started to move back, but his hands were now on the back of my neck as he pulled me into a kiss.
“We can be monsters together.” He spoke between kisses.
In continuing proof of Nancy and Loki’s cat-based friendship, Nancy badgers Thor Odinson via Twitter to bring Loki along with him to Squirrel Girl’s birthday party. He complains about being treated as his brother’s secretary but acquiesces and Loki is bought.
(Nancy also asks him to bring along Jane, who is Thor at the time, and appears to be flirting with her or at least that’s how I choose to interpret it)
Note Loki takes the time to draw a picture of himself as Cat Thor on the label of the gift he bought.
And if you can’t read the smaller text at the bottom of the last picture even after embiggening, it says:
“Squirrel Girl did eventually open Loki’s present and once she got rid of the Asgardian Lesser Prank Beast that was making those noises, a lot of the stuff in there was actually really sweet. The end.”
Also of note for this issue, Squirrel Girl punched a Nazi (specifically the Red Skull), so that was a nice bonus:

Thank you for all of the comments and reblogs! Your feedback is always appreciated!
Okay, I know this story has gotten WAY out of hand, but I promise, it will be worth it. A great big thank you to those of you who are still reading!
“So, let me get this straight…you’re on his side now?”
Loki gritted his teeth, glaring at Raidne with eyes that shimmered with unshed tears of rage.
Ethan had been looking around the party for Loki and while passing the bathroom, he just happened to look in and see him laying down on the floor, leaning against the toilet. “Dammit Loki.”, he sighed. “This is why I stopped bringing you to parties.”
