Loki sat in the living room, a
sharp contrast to the cheerful décor in his signature black, trying not to sigh
with boredom whilst Odin ripped into a hungover Thor yet again.
“I’ve had had it up to here with your
immaturity and your recklessness!” the old man shouted whilst his wife lingered
in the background, ready to step in if things went too far. “Do you have any
idea how many favours I had to call in just so that the police wouldn’t press
charges?! Do you honestly think you will get into any decent college with that sort
of drunken buffoonery on your record?!”
“I’m sorry, father. I wasn’t
“Exactly!” Odin roared. “You
weren’t thinking! You never think things through. You only care about having ‘fun’
in the moment, consequences be damned. Well, I have had enough! You are
grounded until you graduate!!”
“Odin…” Frigga chided quietly
before Thor had a chance to object.
“Fine,” Odin grumbled. “A month,
then. And after that you will have a strict curfew. Home by eight every
evening. No excuses.”
“Father! You can’t be serious!”
Thor whined, failing to know when to keep his mouth shut.
“Deadly serious,” Odin shot back.
“You will be home by eight. You will eat dinner, you will do your homework, and
you will go to bed at a reasonable hour.”
“And have no social life! If you
wanted me to become like Loki so badly why didn’t you just say so?” Thor
grumbled petulantly, sparing a glare at his brother sitting quietly at the
other end of the couch.
Frigga whispered in Odin’s ear
and Odin smirked.
“Very well,” Odin murmured before
turning back to address his son. “Your mother has thought of reasonable
compromise.” Thor perked up, shifting to the edge of his seat. “You can go to parties on the weekend… when your brother does.”
“zeke deserved better - better than a damn disaster like shao, better than a pretentious fucking disco queen, too. zeke deserved someone who would give their last breath for him, the way he would for all the people he loves.
3k words Shao/Zeke. Zeke comes back after he told Shao to leave him alone and confronts him about where he’s been. This deals with Annie’s abuse, so make sure you read the tags properly.
“He’s aware of the bruise around his eye. And he knows Zeke sees it. If he asks (and Shao doesn’t think he will because that would mean someone cares and that’s simply too much to fucking ask, ain’t it? For someone to truly give a shit? For him? Of course it fucking is.) he’ll say he got it in a fight. Or, Zeke and Shao Meet Again After The Events Of Part Two.“
(Reblog from the author’s tumblr) 8.5k words Dizzee/Thor, this is about Dizzee claiming independence and growing into himself. It broke my heart and put it together again. Definitely one of my faves!
“You’re my swan, Diz,” says his dad, low, when he pulls him in for a hug, warm and familiar. “Gotta spread those big wings wide.” He taps Dizzee’s back between his shoulder blades like the wings might grow any minute, unfold out into the room, wide feathered things knocking books off shelves, molting all over the place.”
(Reblog from the author’s tumblr) 10k words Dizzee/Thor, their developing romance, Dizzee coming into himself. Maybe a prequel to tunnel vision, but read either way, they are independent works.
“You ever feel like instead of you creating art it’s creating you?”
Thor mulls that one over for a while, picking at the split threads at his knees. His fingers are ragged around the nails, cuticles bitten down to the quick. “Like a mirror,” he says. “But you’re the reflection.”
“Yeah,” says Dizzee, relieved. It’s so easy to be understood for some reason, like he’s been walking around his whole life speaking a dialect related but distinct from everyone else and suddenly he’s stumbled across someone from the same faraway country.
The King in the Iron Castle- courgette96, T, Chose No Warnings It is the luck of every King to have a loyal servant at his side. Tbh this was interesting in a very twisted way, and its been a favorite for a while.
Loki’s Lullaby- BlanketFortAvenger, G, No Warnings That’s when he hears it. A simple loop of lilting song in a resonating language that couldn’t be anything natural to earth. His enemy’s voice shouldn’t sound so lulling. It’s one of the saddest and most pleasant sounds Tony has ever heard, and it’s only seconds before he’s slipped into a sound sleep. Absolutely one of the sweetest things I have ever read, and the author wrote it when they were drunk? Damn guys, I wish I had that kind of talent lasdhfj
The Quest For the Missing Tesseract- Arvari, M, No Warnings A few months after the Civil War, Thor shows up in Tony’s living room with Loki in tow (and wasn’t that guy supposed to be dead or something?), news that the Tesseract was stolen (and maybe it even wasn’t Loki’s fault) and a plea for Tony’s help in retrieving it. And that is the story of how Tony Stark (aka Anthony) and Loki Laufeyson (aka Lo, Ruby eyes or Bluebird) ended up on an undercover mission in Jotunheim, trying to find a stupid glowing cube neither of them really wants. And if Loki doesn’t kill someone before the week is out, it will be a miracle… Developing relationship? Eneies to friends to lovers? Secret mission from on high?? Sign me the fuck up, please, I want 10 more lakjhsdf
Good, Giving, Game (series)- hannahrhen, E, No Warnings Loki kidnaps Tony Stark and persuades him to work through the items on an unusual–and very adventurous–list. A warning: in part 10 of this series, there are some miscommunications, and there is some… minor abuse, I guess I could call it? Pretty much a light BDSM scene gone wrong. But it (their relationship) gets fixed later on in that same piece. If that is a problem for you, please, please, please think of your mental health first, it’s not absolutely necessary to read this installment, but if you’d still like to know what happens, just message me or send in an ask for a summary of that fic, and I’d be delighted to give it to you. NGL, I’ve re-read this series a couple of times, but hannahrhen is just one of my fave authors? And I don’t think I’ve actually recced much of their stuff on here, so here you go guys. Enjoy this smut and kink fest lakfhjasdf
Double Done- Shi_Toyu, T, No Warnings When Loki was captured by Thanos, he sent his daemon as far away as he could… and it changed a few things. Tbh, for never having read the “His Dark Devices” series, I sure am obsessed with the fics that are based off of it. And this one? This one is an amazing one, it’s absolutely wonderful. Just. Aaaaaa
Burning Through an Ice Storm- ChaoticTrickster, G, Chose No Warnings Loki contemplates Stark’s fighting style. This one is more on an introspective fic, but it’s great nonetheless. Not everyone enjoys them, though honestly I love them, but if they aren’t for you, I still think you’d like this one!
Shards of Ice- melonbutterfly, T, No Warnings Tony tries not to look into anything relating to Loki’s children too much. Maybe he should have; he might have been better prepared. While this one didn’t make me cry, it does still need a feels warning bc oh my lord, Loki not being able to rescue/see his kids kills me every goddamn time I read something abt it.
Sex Magic (series)- hannahrhen, E, No Warnings Loki needs a little something from Tony. This. This series has no redeeming value besides really well written sex, guys. And the one-liners? Top notch, bros. Um. I can’t think of anything else to say aldhf. Just. Let me read porn in peace guys ksdhfjk
Mistaken Meanings- MadcapRomantic, E, Chose No Warnings Three candles are lit, each sitting atop a polished silver dais. Their scents are mellow and sweet, like buttercream cake frosting, like petrichor, and their glow is warming. A hand-crafted wooden box sits, hidden, pushed under an arrangement of flowers, directly across the table from the candles, the treasure inside quietly awaiting revelation. A meal has been prepped and is ready to serve; the only thing the night lacks is the company of a single man; Anthony Edward Stark. This is. It’s proposal angst and fluff and I lived and died several times while reading this kladhfl
Bad ideas sometimes lead to good things- Selana, E, Chose No Warnings/No Warnings Tony has a bad idea during a battle that leads to him being helpless at Loki’s mercy - and Loki surprises him by not taking advantage of it. A great premise, and a greater series. The more human side of Loki that is seen here is really one of my favorites, and the author executes it wonderfully.
NOTES/WARNINGS: So my brain completely skipped right over this chapter, and I only realised as I was going to submit the one I did write, which is why this took longer than the others so far. My brain’s an asshole sometimes. XD Turned out longer than I expected, though, so there’s that.
“What do these do, exactly?” Loki asked as they walked through the halls, rolling the little black sphere in his hand between his fingers.
Edith had asked him if there was anywhere in the palace they could go to be alone that was also out of the way, preferably an unused room, and he decided that one of the lower levels of the old dungeons would do. Nobody ever went in there anymore; in fact, he wasn’t quite sure why they hadn’t been repurposed or removed. It worked to his advantage, though, as he’d spent much time there doing things he shouldn’t.
