Request: Can you do a Loki imagine (female or gender neutral reader.) Where they’ve been together for a while and Loki finally decides to stop by readers home and finds out the reader named their cat Loki? (@deans-short-girl)
I hadn’t intended on my lover returning from Asgard today, if I had, perhaps I would have actually dressed up, or scrubbed my apartment spotless, or hidden the fact that the cat shared the same name. Now, I swear I’m not some stalker who’s obsessed with their boyfriend, in fact, I had named my cat Loki long before I met the real man.
“I was merely giving truth to the lie that I had been fed my entire life… that I was born to be a king.”
No, it’s fine, I’m not crying that Loki is deliberately emulating Thor’s coronation from the first movie, both in setting and with Thor’s signature red cape and his hammer, Thor who actually was born to be a king, Thor that Loki hates almost as much as he loves, Thor that Loki can never let go of, even when he refuses to admit that that’s what he’s doing.
I’m not crying that Loki is play acting out the “lie”, that he’s so emotionally unbalanced that this is how he lashes out at his mother, saying SEE? SEE, THIS IS WHAT YOU’VE REDUCED ME TO, this is what you’ve turned me into. I was born to be a king? Well, clearly this is the only way I can ever actually have it, because you never intended any such thing!
Spending the weekend at my parent’s house dog sitting this giant goofball. This is Loki. He’s a rescue and comes with a long list of anxieties. But he’s also just a big playful baby that wants all the love. And he gives great hugs.
Bucky didn’t know what Loki would do next. He didn’t know if the god would simply shrug away from him, or hit him, or throw him against the wall… But he’d been hit before. Not by a god, but by super-soldiers. He’d been hit, slapped, punched, beaten, thrown down stairs, electrocuted… the point was, he wasn’t afraid of Loki. He just didn’t want to offend Loki.
The god’s body went rigid, but he didn’t make any sudden movements. So, no hitting. That’s good . Bucky thought.
Loki’s arms were down at his sides, and Bucky noticed that his shoulders were tense- so tense Bucky couldn’t imagine how he managed to turn his head. He idly wondered if Loki walked around like that all the time. It was a long moment before Loki moved, but Bucky continued to hug him; knowing that Loki probably hadn’t had any real friendly physical contact in a very long time. Finally, the god dropped his head a half inch.
