Imagine that you are best friends with Jane foster. So when Thor comes crashing down to earth and all that random romance happens, you get invited to their wedding in Asgard. It is there that you meet the Royal Family, including Loki (because let’s say in this universe Loki didn’t do any of the stuff he did to fall off the bridge, because why not?).
You join the Family at the high table and while having a perfectly reasonable interrogation of the Royal Family(Jane only deserves the best). Loki, deciding to live up to his title of the God of Mischief, turns your drink into a snake (constrictor). What Loki doesn’t realise is that you love snakes and therefore you start cooing at it like a normal person would a baby or puppy. Loki and everyone else is rather confused (apart from Jane who’s debating if it’s too late to throw you off a cliff because you do this kind of thing far too often).
Imagine being a commoner who became royalty by marrying Loki after falling in love with each other. During your first Royal engagement since you became a princess, you become very overwhelmed with nerves from trying not to forget all the lessons and protocols you were taught. Loki who chose to accompany you notices and laces his fingers with yours and gives you a glance as if to tell you that you have nothing to worry about. When you both return, Odin scolds Loki for breaking protocol of no PDA during royal engagements (Even though you are married). Loki quickly responds by saying “Damn the protocols, she’s my wife and her well-being is my top priority, instead of remembering protocols”
Imagine you are the firstborn child of a king who had just finished the preparations on a peace treaty that the Asgardians had sent. You, being the firstborn child, get to choose one of the two Asgard royal children to take as your servant; your younger (and far more violent) sibling get to claim the other one. You choose Thor, knowing the bigger man’s childlike innocence would be shattered under the care of your sibling.
About a week after claiming Thor and settling him in, you find Loki hiding in your rooms beaten black and blue, nude, and looking like he’d seen a ghost. You also notice a strange contraption place around his neck, a sort of magic blocker that wouldn’t allow him to use any magic. You carefully remove the contraption and patch him up, only for Thor to walk in and become shocked by Loki’s beaten and bruised state.
You both find out what your sibling had been up to (a specific something far darker than training) and you make it your goal to send the Asgardian royalty home no matter what… Even if it means an arranged marriage between one of the brothers.
“Okay so when we were little I accidentally mentioned that I had a crush on you but I always thought you didn’t hear me because you just looked at me weird and never commented but now we’re in high school and omg you just introduced me as your boyfriend/girlfriend/datemate wtf we never discussed this!!!”
“Oh my god you just screamed ‘SO WHAT IF I LIKE YOU WHAT’RE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT?’ at the top of your lungs in a very crowded restaurant and how about for starters I take you home and get you sober???”
“Why are you so clingy people will think we’re dating- I know we are but you’re the one who wants it to be secret you moron!”
“Umm okay I’m sorry you always thought your love for me was unrequited but on to more important matters YOU’RE GETTING MARRIED IN THE MORNING SO YOU HAVE A DECISION TO MAKE YOU ASSHOLE!!!”
“I’m a prince/princess/royal child and you’re a prince/princess/royal child from another country and my parents said to do whatever it takes to get this treaty signed between our countries. Hey I guess our forbidden romance will finally come in handy!”
“I understand that you’re my bodyguard but that was a freaking FRISBEE not a nuclear bomb jesus christ- Hey why are you still on top of me and why have I not noticed how beautiful you are?”
“Our mutual friend apparently has been waiting for us to get together and so they’re very angry/disappointed/upset when they find out that the reason we kissed last night was because we were black-out drunk, but hey I actually do like you so how’s lunch sound after we’re done being hungover and can actually stand being in the sunlight?”
“I’m a princess with magical powers, but I have to hide them because no one can know that my entire family are wizards. You’re a peasant but you’re very experienced with your magic so I start sneaking out so you can teach me how to control my magic”
