lost prince of asgard

Imagine you work at the palace in Asgard. Your best friend works there as well and comes sometimes in contact with the younger prince Loki. In usual gossip with her, it turns out that she has a big crush on him. Shaken by the fact that she, a servant girl, will never get a chance to be with a prince, she asks you, who has a natural talent for art, to draw her a picture of him. After some time you are done and present it to her. You could capture the beauty of him to its fullest, your friend is very happy and like a professional you have also signed it for her. Unfortunately, in the hustle and bustle of the work, the artwork gets lost. And of all the people at the place it manages to land precisely in the prince’s hands!! After all that time, you’ve managed to go unnoticed, you have gained the attention of the sinister young prince Loki, who, after a while of wondering has found out whom the name of the artwork belongs to.

Thor/Loki. Hurt/Comfort. Slow Burn. AU - Canon Divergence. Urban Setting. World Travel. 83,507 words.

Summary:  When Loki learns the truth of his heritage, he quietly leaves Asgard behind. The search for the lost prince continues for nearly a year until Odin hires a professional tracker to find him, sending Thor along on the hunt to ensure Loki’s safe return. They locate him on Midgard, living on his own in a run down apartment—depressed, weakened, and trying very hard to disappear.


“What are you waiting for?” Thor asked. “You’re free.”

I don’t know, Loki wanted to say. But that wasn’t true.

Perhaps it had something to do with the kiss that was still drying on his lips. Or perhaps it was the realization that Thor hadn’t been lying when he’d said he was on Loki’s side.

He thought of all Thor’s fumbling attempts at taking care of him. Of sleepless nights spent listening to him breathe and wondering why he hadn’t given up and left yet. He had nursed Loki back to health with uncharacteristic patience. Fed him. Listened to him. Tried to find ways to comfort and reassure him. He’d even brought Frigga here to plead with her to set Loki free.

Thor had done his utmost to restore his brother’s faith in his identity and the love of his family. At that moment, it didn’t matter that he had failed. He had cared enough to try.

When Loki reached out a hand to his brother, it was much more than an invitation to join him when he left New York City behind. He marveled at the astonishment and relief written all over Thor’s face.

Was it really so surprising?
