She stared at Thor only for a second until the sting of the IVs hit her. She looked at herself more. She saw an IV hooked up to her left hand. Her right hand looked perfectly fine, and her body was covered in blankets upon blankets. Looking around, she saw the bright light above her shining down on her like a spotlight. Besides the bed, there was only one chair and it was scooted all the way up next to her. She had a visitor. Did Thor stay with her all this time?

She looked through the glass. Thor and the person he was talking to did not notice her yet. (Y/N) tried yelling at the glass, but no luck. She tried waving her arms around still no luck. She thought of a way, but it would be slightly painful. She tugged at the IVs and winced.

‘No, I have had worse pain than this. I can do this. It’s just a tug,’ she thought. She closed her eyes, and tugged harder. The needles came out of her skin and the machine beeped loudly enough for Thor and his conversation partner to notice. Thor saw (Y/N) awake and rushed to her. (Y/N) giggled a little bit and smiled to herself. Thor was always being dramatic.

“(Y/N)! You’re awake! How are you feeling? Are you still cold?” Thor asked all at once. (Y/N) let out her laughter and held out her arms for him. Thor joined her in a hug. Thor was about to crush her when he heard a wince. Thor let go and looked at (Y/N). She was so much warmer now and more color returned to her cheeks.

“I’m sorry,” (Y/N) said. “I think I’m still sore.”

“You are,” said Thor’s conversation partner. He was tall, blond, and very handsome. (Y/N) never saw a Midgardian look so Asgardian in beauty. Her mouth opened a little bit at him, but she shook her head. The blond held out his hand. “I’m Steve, Steve Rogers.”

“(Y/N). Where am I?” (Y/N) asked both of them, but she directed the questions towards Thor.


“I know that. I’ve been here for a while,” (Y/N)’s brows knitted together. She played with her fingers as she looked down.

“How long have you been here?” Steve asked her. He crossed his arms and looked more serious. (Y/N) suddenly didn’t feel so welcome in the warm bed she was in.

“I’m not exactly sure,” (Y/N)’s eyes could not meet Steve’s.

“(Y/N), tell us what you remember. Captain is not here to hurt you. No one is,” Thor sat down in the chair beside her. (Y/N) was more comfortable with Thor around, but still hesitant to say what happened to her. She bit her lip trying to find the right words to start.

“You remember me when I was at my lowest, brother,” she told Thor. “After you left, I felt numb. Sif did not want to leave my side. She had thought I was going to…” (Y/N) trailed off. Wanting to get off the depressing subject, Thor pried more.

“What do you remember about Thanos?” Thor asked. (Y/N) cringed at the sound of his name.

“I met him. I came face to face with him many times. He told me what Loki did. What Loki tried to do. How Loki failed him, and how it was my fault.” (Y/N) held back a sob. She did not want to cry now. Thor reached out to her and took her hand.

“None of what happened is your fault. You know this. You had nothing to do with Loki’s actions.”

“But why was I punished? I do not understand!”

“Thanos was using you to punish Loki,” Steve cut in. “We are gathering as much intel as we can about him. He is still very new to us. Anything you can tell us would be extremely helpful right now. Do you think you can tell us more right now?” Steve looked at (Y/N)’s hands. They were shaking.

“Captain, do you mind giving us some time? I think we’re done for today,” Thor answered for (Y/N). Steve nodded.

“By the way, (Y/N), Thor was right. You are very graceful; it reminds me of someone I care about very much,” Steve smiled at her and left. (Y/N) smiled back at Captain Steve, maybe she was wrong about him after all.

“We are in Avengers Headquarters, in New York. You have been here for a few days. You were unconscious for all of it. How are you feeling?” Thor sat on the side of her bed.

“For the first time in a while, I feel safe. I feel warm,” (Y/N) shook her head. “You would not believe what I went through, Thor. It was–I felt so. I can’t possibly explain it.” Tears started to come to her eyes. Thor took her hands.

“You are safe now. I promise you from this day forward I will not lose you again,” Thor kissed the top of her forehead. (Y/N) smiled and the frowned. “What is it, (Y/N)? Tell me.”

“I saw the hair pulled up next to me. Did you stay here with me all this time?” (Y/N) asked.

“No, I did not,” Thor admitted. “For the last few days, I was in constant meetings with Captain and the Man of Iron. Your constant visitor was Loki.” (Y/N)’s heart dropped when she heard his name. Loki? Here? What happened to him? Could he still care about her? More importantly, where was he now? Thor laughed a little bit. (Y/N) snapped back into reality.

“What? What is it?” (Y/N) said feeling a little frustrated.

“I know you, sister,” Thor started. “You may be cleverer than I am, but I know you. You’re in your head thinking of all of the questions in the world, and you’re going to try to make this harder than what it really is.”

“Where is he? Why isn’t he here now?”

“He’s a prisoner. He is being punished for his crimes against Midgard. He was allowed to see you for some time, but he still needs permission to get out of his cell. That’s why he isn’t here now.” Thor explained. (Y/N) felt a tightness in her chest. The love of her life was a criminal. Not just any criminal, but criminal in two realms.

“I want to see him. Take me to him,” (Y/N) said. Thor smiled.

“Now you sound more like yourself. I don’t think I can take you to him now, but I will go and ask—

“No. He needs me. I want to see him now,” (Y/N) demanded. Thor knew his almost sister well. He helped her up, and both started towards Loki’s cell. Thor knew (Y/N) to not tell her no when it came to Loki. They past guards and agents who tried to tell the God of Thunder no, but they were unsuccessful.

Meanwhile, Loki sulked in his cell. Guilty thoughts went through his head. The dream he had had affected him greatly. What if (Y/N) no longer cared for him? What if she woke up and she would not be forgiving? When he had attacked New York, he did not think of (Y/N). In fact, he’s not so sure if he thought at all. He may have broken her heart that day, and seeing her again broken would only hurt him more.

Loki heard people walking around franticly, but he paid no mind. He wanted to shut off the world. Not to ignore the world, but to punish himself. He did not feel the gravity of his crimes, but he felt the gravity of guilt for (Y/N). He had failed her so greatly. He sat against the glass wall and looked up at the bright lighting. He thought maybe if he stared into the brightness of the lights long enough it would blind him. He thought he deserved that much.

Then there was a tap.

Loki kept staring at the lights. Surely, it was just some noise he heard outside of the cell.

Then another tap.

Loki took his eyes away from the bright, white lights of the cell. He looked behind him. He eyes adjusted to the darker room outside the cell. That’s when he saw her. (Y/N) had one hand on the glass, and the other holding a blanket around her like a shawl. Her eyes filled with tears, but she had a sad smile on her face. Loki put both hands on the glass, and his pupils dilated.
“(Y/N)!” Loki shouted. “You’re-you’re awake! You’re alive!” Loki heard a hissing sound from the cell and stood up and stood back. The cell was opening, and he couldn’t wait for it to open all the way. As soon as he could fit through, his arms reached for her and held her there. His hands tangled in her hair and he pressed his nose against her. Taking in every smell he could.
“(Y/N), my dove, my pretty dove, I’m so sorry,” Loki whispered into her ear. “I’m so sorry.” (Y/N) grabbed onto him and refused to let go. She started to kiss his face. Loki chuckled and returned her kisses.

“You’ve returned to me,” Loki said quietly.

After the reunion between the two lovers, Thor had petitioned for Loki’s release upon one condition: Loki and (Y/N) work with the Avengers gathering and providing intel on Thanos. After a good argument from Thor, Steve, and even Natasha, Nick Fury couldn’t deny the idea. Having Loki and (Y/N) providing intelligence on the bigger enemy would prove to be helpful in the future. Loki and (Y/N) were given a place to themselves away from Avengers Tower. They were both to remain on Midgard until further notice, but for now they both needed time to heal.

other people when I’m the only fandom person around:

people when I’m not the only fandom person around:

wardenmcpherson  asked:

Rich said he had acted under the assumption that Gabriel had a vessel or avatar or whatever stolen from or fashioned after Loki. And that he sealed Loki away in order to convincingly masquerade as him amongst the gods. Whatcha think of that? I had always thought of them being "same deity/different culture." Kind of like how Romans renamed the Greek pantheon.

this is actually something that i put in God’n’Gabe III! it’s my favorite portion. since it’s been out a while, i’ll show it now:

THIS is my favorite portion of the entire book. probably some of my absolute favorite comic work that i’ve ever done, too. i thought rich’s idea was brilliant, but i did take and twist it some. i made loki a prisoner in his own vessel, more or less. i like the idea that gabriel tricked the trickster when he was at his most vulnerable.

(if this looks familiar, it was original done in a video format, which i reworked to work in the book’s format!)

Since we’re probably all waiting for the Ragnarok trailer, today let’s pick our favourite Loki hairstyle.

1. Is it the fairly short hair of the still rather innocent Loki from Thor?

Originally posted by lookprettyliveclassyplaydirty

2. Loki The Avengers villain aka way too much hair product?

3. Or maybe Loki the dishevlled prisoner?

4. Loki in Svartalfheim aka L'Oreal (Because you’re worth it!)?

Originally posted by lookprettyliveclassyplaydirty

5. Or is it the hair of Ragnarok!Loki, also known as Gucci!Loki?

I’m choosing TDW Loki, though I still can’t decide which version, #3 or #4. ;)


Name: Give her back
Pairing: Loki x reader
Summary: when the Avengers inform Loki that they caught you (they hoped to make him talk), he goes absolutely furious.

“Oh, also,” Natasha waves her hand, as if it’s nothing important. “I thought you would be interested in us capturing one of your followers.”

“I do not care for those people.”

“Yeah, I figured. Well, this Y/N tends to look very scared in our prison,” on the screen (so generously granted by Fury) you can see how Loki’s face looses its sly smile, as he makes a slow step towards the glass wall, not taking his eyes off Natasha.

“What did you just say?”

“Y/N. She tried to put up a fight,” you can’t help a quick smile - you bit them, not put up a fight, even though you tried. “But we still got her locked up - safe and sound.”

“If you hurt her,” Loki’s voice is quiet and calm, but you can almost feel him seethe with rage. “If you touch her, I will make sure you never know peace, agent Natalia Romanoff. No matter where you run and how well you hide, you will never, never, know peace.”

“As if we would hurt an innocent…”

“I know what you would do!” his fist almost crushes the glass next to Natasha’s face, his loud voice piercing through the air, hurting no worse than an actual punch. “And that is why I am telling you - do not touch her. Because when I come for her. And I will come for her. If she is hurt in any way, I will destroy everything you have ever cared about. I will make sure you never want to breathe again, not after all the things I make you do, not after I destroy everything that makes you,” you can see Natasha’s fear - no matter how good she is at acting like she is rough and touch, seeing a furious god is always scary. “You may call me a monster, but you do not know what kind of a monster I am.”

“What about we find a compromise?” Natasha suddenly offers, her hand automatically reaching up to touch her ear, so everyone knows that just now Fury said something. “You stop making a mess, give back the…”

“You won’t give her back to me,” Loki waves his hand. “Do not be stupid, you will use her to make me act the way you want. I want her back. Now. And then, maybe, just maybe, you will survive.”

“Or she will just tell us all she knows to save her life,” Natasha offers another option.

“She will never,” Loki is calm, even smiling now, then frowns. “She would not betray me, and she doesn’t know anything. Would I really tell her so much about my plans? Am I that cruel? Cruel enough to make her live through all this pain and knowing that her consciousness suffers because of me? What kind of a man do you think I am?” his face twists, and you are grateful as never for never being told anything, no matter how much you begged. You are with an evil mastermind, after all. Natasha stops and looks him in the eye, then slowly nods, accepting that Loki actually cares for someone. “So keep your bloody hands off her. And do not try your mind games.”

“That happened two hours ago,” a random agent pauses the recording a minute later, obviously too worried to do the job properly, as he was probably told to leave the last part out. “Now, we are convinced that he actually told you something but is exceptionally good at acting… What did he tell you?”

“Why did you show me the recording?”

“To show you that he would do anything to protect that secret he told you… He does not love you. He can’t,” an agent frowns. “You must understand it, the monster like him is not capable of loving.”

“Do you even know him?” you suddenly smile. “Agent… You know nothing of the man you just took me from. You know nothing of me. But you must believe me when I say that he will come to get me.”

“He can’t find you, child, not here,” a moment later, the door into your cage is opened.

“He has found her,” you hear a calm voice - threateningly calm, and you can’t help a smile. “Now, please, step away from her,” the agent obediently makes a few steps back, and Loki smiles - you can hear it in his voice. “Well done. We wouldn’t want your blood all over her, would we? Are you alright, Y/N?”

“Yeah… Yes, I am fine,” one of Loki’s followers quickly takes your handcuffs off, and you stand up, then turn to Loki and smile weakly. “You found me.”

“Of course I would,” he quickly pulls you close, and you can smell the metal of his armor pressed against your cheek and feel his growing hair tickle your forehead. Loki holds your shoulder with all the strength possible, then presses his lips against your forehead. “Did they hurt you?”

“No, no, I am fine,” he doesn’t let go of you, just holds you tighter, as you walk out of the prison and hurry to the helicopter, neatly surrounded with dead bodies. Before you ask him what has caused such fury, Loki whispers quietly.

“They didn’t want to tell me where you are. So now,” he makes you sit down in the helicopter and takes your face in his hands. “I am taking you to a safe place. A very safe place where no one will find you.”

“Another prison?” you joke, and Loki rolls his eyes.

“The place between the worlds. No one can see there,” he sighs and strokes your head. “I cannot risk loosing you again to those idiots, can I?”

Anyway I hope Jake Gyllenhaal wins best actor in a leading role tonight for his phenomenal performance as Detective Loki in Prisoners (2013) directed by Denis Villeneuve. Truly an outstanding performance he really deserves it

A/N: The drama continues to unfold…

Bucky hits the water with a force that would strip the flesh from an ordinary man; good thing Bucky wasn’t of the norm, but the pain that ricocheted throughout his body was that of an ordinary man. The impact of the water knocked the wind out of him as his mind became his own again and his thoughts flashed to the day he fell out of the train into the icy ravine then being found by Doctor Zola, receiving his bionic arm and the agony of having his mind erased. The shock of it all caused him to lose consciousness as he sunk to the depths.

The Iron Man suit attaches itself to Bucky’s limbs, it emerges and shoots out of the water, up and out of the misty haze into the blinding sunlight and back on solid ground. The suit peels itself from Bucky as his limp body crumbles to the ground into a heap. Steve and Bruce administered CPR until Bucky finally came to, spitting and coughing up the water in his lungs.

“We definitely need to put up a caution, at your own risk sign or some netting.” Sam states, kicking some loose rocks over the cliff.

 I sat on the ground, bringing my knees up to my chest as close as they would go and I wrapped my arms around my legs and held my head down and cried. The emotions flowing through me was unbearable, words wouldn’t suffice, so I did the only thing I could do.

I became inconsolable.

I felt his arm rubbing my back. “That’s twice.” I say looking up at him with tears streaming down my face. “You’ve almost died twice in the past two months and it’s not work related. Why are you doing this? What did I do for you to keep reopening the same wounds? We are not okay, all of this, I never imagine this.”

“I never meant to cause you any pain, I will do any and everything to make this pain go away, but you are not the only one hurting, Doll, you slept with him and you are pregnant with my child. How could you be so cruel to me? I don’t deserve that, you know that I don’t.” 

I gazed up at him. “Bucky, I didn’t sleep with Loki when we were in Asgard. The desire was there, but I could never betray you in that way.”

“But in the room, you said…”

“You didn’t let me finish.”

I felt the relief wash over his body as he relaxed. “Oh.” 

“Oh.” I mocked. “That’s all you have to say, seriously?” I stood up and began to walk into the house.

He grabbed my arm. “Stop walking away from me.” He sighed. “No, that’s not all I have to say, but that’s all I kept thinking about. I see how he is with you, everyone sees it,” he gestures. “And I feel like the idiot that’s in love with you, while you’re in love with him and it makes me jealous that I could never be that affectionate and attentive with you. I think it would be easier if this was Loki’s child.”

I slapped him.


 My fingers balled into a fist and I pounded on his chest. “How fucking dare you say that! Who is the cruel one now? Is that what you want for this to be easy because if that’s the case you can walk the hell away from me and not come back. What part of this could ever be normal and easy? Look around you James, normal doesn’t exist here and it never will. My child…our child’s uncles are not normal look at them.” He eyes jump from Sam, Tony, Steve, Bruce, and Thor who all tried, but failed horribly at trying to pretend they weren’t listening to our conversation. “James all we do lately is fight. We can’t have an argument without you losing your shit and turning into a killer assassin.” I paused. “With Loki it’s different, it will always be different with him. I love him that will never stop. I loved him, but no longer in the way that you are imagining.”

“He’s still in love with you.”

“Yes, he is. And he always will be. James, Loki and I…what I was trying to explain to you earlier was that…” I paused, looking down at my hands then at Thor, who inconspicuously nodded his head. I inhaled deeply. “Loki and I were engaged.”

The air left everyone’s lungs as their mouth hung open in shock.

Sam gapes at Thor, “not your secret to tell, huh. You knew this entire time?” Thor shrugged indifferently. “I did not see this coming. Mind blown.” Sam gestures.

“Engaged as in fiancee?”

I nod. “When you are trying to take over the world that kind of take precedence over a relationship with a human. And then getting arrested for said war crimes and being sent to prison. Loki is…” I paused. “We decided to go our separate ways.”

“If it’s over, why is he here?”

“I take her to the Dreamless.” Everyone turns to see Loki standing at the spot where Bucky tossed him into the precipice. Bucky’s demeanor changes from a calm warmth into a static ball of heat.

“The what?” Sam asked.

“Brother didn’t think you would be back.” Loki shrugs.

“What is the Dreamless?” Bucky asked.

Thor answers. “It’s essentially a graveyard where all matter in different dimensions go to die. Stars, planets, suns, etc.”

“That’s morbid.” Sam states.

Loki lifts his hands cautiously as he slowly steps forward. “I take her to the Dreamless because she is unwell, James.” Bucky gazes at me. “She is so fragile right now, so many unhealthy thoughts are in her head.”

“And a graveyard isn’t unhealthy.” Sam utters.

Loki continues looking at me then at Bucky, “she is mentally and emotionally wiped out. Do you know that she’s not eating or sleeping?”

I shook my head, “Lo, please.”

“He has to know, you know he does.”

Bucky turns to me. “Why didn’t you tell me?”

“When could I have told you? When you weren’t talking to me, when you were knocked unconscious…when you were busy with Natasha.” I answered harshly.

“That’s no fair.”

“Sleeping with Nat makes it fair?”

“No, it doesn’t, but I can explain.” The voice behind me answers.

I turn to see Natasha and Clint standing in the doorway…

arguments and books

authors note: so here we are again. Second one shot, this time it´s about Loki (why are there so less fanfics about him?) + I honestly have no idea, what exactly this is about. I just started writing and this thing happened. Sorry for this messy shit, but it´s like 5 minutes till midnight and I´m more asleep than awake.

With your favorite book in your hand you walked down the long hallway. It was your time to watch Loki, the prisoner as the others (exept Thor) would call him.

Since you´ve first seen him he captured your interest. This mysterious god who was far too handsome for his own good. And everyone hated him, almost everyone. This time maybe even his own brother. Somehow, you weren´t included to this discription. You didn´t hate the trickster, in fact you actually really liked him. You found him rather understandable, no doubt, to kill innocent people wasn´t something that you would ever tolerate, but somehow you could understand, why he did it.

Holding up your ID-card so that the security guards would recognise you and allow you entrance, you entered the room. Everywhere a camera was placed. Just to make sure, Tony had said.

But that was it. Plenty of cameras, millions you thought to yourself, but no guard exept for the two infront of the door you´ve just passed.

Loki was standing right in the middle of his cell, arms crossed behind his back, starring into nothing.

“Everyday another guard.”, the god mocked. “What have I done to deserve such a thing? Are you all so desperate to see me?”, he joked. “I´m afraid I have to dissappoint you, they are quite a bit annoyed by your behaviour.”, you answered. “And that´s why they now are sending you?” His green-blue eyes were glaring daggers into your head, but you didn´t mind. You were looking for the perfect spot to sit down, read your book and ignore him. “Seems like it..”, you mumbled. Finally, you found a spot that seemed comfortable enough to spend the whole day there.


You haven´t seen him often before. ´Loki´s no-one you want to meet´ one of your fellow team mates had told you. Oh, how wrong they had been. What exactly it was that catched your interest? You didn´t know, but somehow his aura was enchanting. Somehow, you loved being around him, so you agreed to take guard more often. Sure, the others were quite a bit curious why on earth you would spend your spare-time with the god of mischief himself, but they were far more pleased that neither of them had to do it, so they wouldn´t spend a second thought on it.


“What exactly are you reading?”, his voice echoed trough the blank room. “Hm?” You looked up slightly at the man in the cell, not really remembering what he said. Loki rolled his eyes, but asked again: “Your book, I want to know what it is that you are reading.” He came to an halt and looked at you. “The light between oceans.”, you answered. The raven haired man scoffed and lifted an eyebrow. “What in Odin´s name is that about?” “It´s actually a quite beautiful story about a couple. The man, Tom, he´s a lighthouse keeper, living on a small island with his wife Izzy, one day they find a boat with a dead man and a baby and-”, but you couldn´t finish, as you got interrupted by Loki, “Only midgardians could write a whole book about things that doesn´t matter.”, he sneered. “Well for me it does matter. There are so many things happening almost everyday somewhere on this planet and a beautiful, yet painful story as this one here,”, you held up the book so that Loki could see the cover, “this one is a pure gem. My favorite book by far and a outstanding story about love and how it clearly is not an easy subject.” “Love is for those who are weak.” This statement actually made you smile. “I really do think, that even you, the great Loki, god of mischief, is desperate to find his one. You can try tell me otherwise, but as you might already know I´m quite stubborn and I believe in love, that´s why I´ve got to be going now, as I´m having a date. You´re brother´s about to guard you, maybe you wanna have a discussion about love with him. See you later Mr. love-is-for-the-weak.”, you grinned at him mischievously and winked, then placed the book right infront of his cell and said: “I´ll ask Thor to give it to you, maybe you wanna read it, at least if you do want to understand our weakness.”


The next time you were on guard, Loki seemed different. When you entered the room he was actually looking straight into your [E/C] eyes. Was that regret dancing in his?

As you stepped closer to his cell he let his eyes wander up and down your body, making you feel a bit uncomfortable. “I´ve read it.”, his small voice piped. A little shocked, your eyes widened. “You what?”

“I´ve read it.”, he repeated, this time more confident. “That.. It´s.. Thank you.” A small smile appeared on your face. “But why?” “Because I could see the passion in your eyes when you talked about it, it´s quite a long time ago, that I saw such a thing. I wanted to know, why you are so passionate about it. The book is.. It´s alright, I guess.”, he finally admitted. That probably was the highest of compliments you would ever hear leaving his mouth. “I´m glad you read it.”

There was a long time of silence, until Loki spoke up again. “How was your date?”

You couldn´t help but laught, never in your life you would have thought to talk about your love life with someone like Loki. “He was a jerk. Zero interest in anything other than trains. And believe me, not even I can talk as passionatly about something as much as he did.” The both of you laughed, the first time you could actually see him smile a warm smile, other than the ones he showed everyone.

And from this time on, the both of you started to form a friendship, that neither of you would ever have thought of.
