Chapter 2 of “Barista-Meet-Cute-I-Hate/Love-You-But-Our-Friends-Are-Dating-And-There’s-Alcohol-Involved (because, of course there’s alcohol involved)”
In which Sif and Sigyn prove that the course of true love runs through both the fields of Elysium and a WWF ring, and in which Thor writes many notes on little coffee napkins.
Tropes/cliches in ch. 2 include: “he’s an arrogant but sexy asshole and [he] hates him but kinda also wants to fuck him and [he] will as soon as we see that underneath it all he’s actually a puppy with such a kind heart.” (from @eve1978) [Does that count as a spoiler? Does anyone really not know where this is headed?] “They also haaaaate each other, until…ya know….they don’t” (from @therealopheliatagloff) Our friends are dating (suggested by, like, everyone) We get stuck together at a dinner (from @ourladypinxthings) That little sliver of skin when someone’s shirt rides up (also suggested by everyone) Someone’s breath hitches (ibid) Hands gripping so tight the knuckles are white (from @marvelousmissfit) We’re trapped in a room together and have no choice but to interact (from @angryschnauzer, et al) Up-against-the-door-sex (from @sarabeth72)
I’m making up this tag list as I go, so let me know if you want on or off this list:
I’ve had these lists in progress for ages, I am going to post them before they gather even more dust, because I really need to clear out my recs file! And, oh, man, I continue to love how there are just some really great fic writers in this fandom. *__*
THOR/LOKI RECS: ✦ Wide Open by stereobone, thor/loki, nsfw, pre-movies, 7.1k “Do you think dreams can tell the future?” ✦ The trials of Loki Odinsson: a saga by netla, some thor/loki implied, humor, 2.2k Heed now the words of Loki Odinsson, aged five hundred years and three quarters of a decade. Thor, if you have dedicated yourself to overcoming your difficulties with the written script and chosen my private parchments as your practice, put this down now or I will cut your hands off in the night and feed them to the fish! I shall know, Thor! ✦ untitled by karuvapatta, thor/loki, ~1k Prompt: Shoulder rubs, here you go! ✦ Simple by karuvapatta, thor/loki, nsfw, 1k In retrospect, he shouldn’t have looked. OTHER PAIRINGS: ✦ Two’s Company by Mikkeneko, steve/loki, sick!steve, 1.5k This was a chapter of his life that Steve thought he’d left behind, along with creaky humidifiers, sitting on the bleachers while the other kids played football, and ‘cure-alls’ purchased from the down-alley markets that never seemed to do much. ✦ The Dread of Touching by zauberer_sirin, bruce/natasha, 1k Bruce is frightened, but not for himself. ✦ Leaving Impressions by Kay (sincere), thor/sif, 1.1k The gods of the Norsemen will soon leave them, and a new god has already arrived to take their place. Sif is both relieved and concerned – and on behalf of both the Norsemen, and Thor. ✦ just for practice by didoxidate, thor/sif, NSFW, 2.6k Thor has no issue with status; he has no desire to bed her just to have conquered the Lady Sif. ✦ Music of the Spheres by Saucery, heimdall/loki, intersex!loki, 2k A young Loki takes to visiting Heimdall. ✦ untitled by pro-antagonist [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki/natasha + thor/loki, NSFW, ~1k When Thor penetrates his brother from behind, Loki’s forward thrusts into Natasha become abruptly unfocused. ✦ Happy Birthday, Mr. Stark by thejammys, thor/loki + tony/loki + thor & tony, NSFW, intersex!loki, 8.9k Tony thinks Loki wants to fuck Thor and uses his birthday as an excuse to get the three of them into bed together. ✦ i’m the road that drives away (then follows you back home) by thinkatory, jane/gamora + ensembles, 6.5k But once opened, some doors aren’t so easy to close, for plenty of reasons. ✦ Patience by tristesses, loki/natasha, NSFW, pegging, dom/sub, intersex!loki, toys, 1.5k When Loki’s this desperate, Natasha doesn’t even need to ask nicely. ✦ Fisticuffs by pro-antagonist [ mobile ver. ], loki/natasha, 3.5k As it turned out, locking Natasha up in a pair of handcuffs in no way prevented her from putting Loki in a rear naked chokehold. ✦ Like Vines, We Intertwine by Lise, steve/loki/natasha, NSFW, double penetration, pegging, 4.2k Cruelty and kindness; Loki needs both. Steve can be one but not the other. Natasha’s flexible.
HIDDLESWORTH RECS: ✦ Eager by curds-and-wheyface [ mobile ver. ], hiddlesworth, NSFW, 3.2k “So eager,” Chris chided, clucking his tongue. ✦ untitled by amberfox17 [ mobile ver. ], hiddlesworth, NSFW, ~1k “I don’t know how you do it,” Tom groans, throwing himself down on the bed - or, well, strictly speaking, walking to the bed and then just faceplanting into it, making the springs creak.
