Some people leave the fandom 'cause the canon might get dissapointing, BUT in my opinion that's when fandom becomes a sort of refuge... Not enough Brodinsons love in the movies? BAM! FF!, Interesting concepts droped like a hot potato by the directors? YOU KNOW THERE'S A FIC SOMEWHERE THAT EXPLORES IT! And your fics in particular are a great part of what lured me here and to ff in general, so don't get discouraged, cause your writing is AWESOME, and it's only improved :D
Thank you so much for sending this. ♥ I couldn’t agree more that FANFICTION IS WONDERFUL. And so is fandom is general. When canon lets us down or takes 4 freaking years to give us new content *cough*, our fellow fans are there to get us through.
I’ve been wanting to do fic recs lately, and this is a good excuse.

I don’t see why I should follow the crowd, the magpie said.
- The Prisoner - ladymacbeth99 @ladyofmidgard
Laufey did not abandon Loki, though he was anything but a good father. When Jotunheim wages war against Asgard yet again, Odin takes the young prince back with him as a political prisoner. An unlikely friendship forms between enemies.
- No Such Liberty - XParrot
Following the attack on New York, Thor takes Loki back to Asgard in chains; but this does not mean that the god of mischief’s schemes are ended, or that Thor has or ever will give up on his brother. But when Thanos threatens the realm to claim his lost prizes, on which side will Loki fall?
- Tempting Death - loxxlay/sigyndenning @loxxxlay
When Loki falls, Thanos picks him back up.
- Godchild - griseldajane
When Loki finds a de-aged Thor wandering alone on the battlefield, Loki takes the five year old child in and resolves to figure out how Thor was transformed and why…

- In the Shadow of the Valley - Lise @veliseraptor
Most of their meetings are accidental. But not all of them.
- The Lullaby Singer - TheOtherOdinson @theotherodinson
Odin hasn’t left Asgard in over a thousand years. When he finds out Loki is still alive and preparing to launch an attack on Midgard, he could send Thor to stop him. Or Odin could go himself.
- Standing Still - TheOtherOdinson
One year after the invasion of New York, Tony Stark receives two unexpected houseguests. One is welcome, the other not so much. Tony would love to know why they’re there. So would everyone else.
- Life In Reverse - Lise
Home is where you make it. Or, the AU where Loki falls to Earth after Thor, wanders around trying to work out what to do with himself, and somehow ends up working for SHIELD. (Mostly because supervillains are so plebian.)
- Birthright - Lise
Five times Odin almost told Loki the truth. Almost.
- Four Days with Lazarus - LadyCharity @mykingdomforapen
When the sky falls, he reaches for his brother.(in which Loki is afraid of hell)
- in her garden grew hyacinths - LadyCharity
There is a tapestry that hung on Frigga’s wall for as long as Thor can remember. He won’t admit it, but the sight of it makes him want to cry.
- Road to Nowhere - Lise
When Loki turns up demanding Thor’s help on a quest to retrieve the All-Mother from Valhalla, Thor isn’t about to say no. But that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten anything, and what better time than a road trip through the backwaters of the universe for trying to talk things out?
- Truthfully - Salazarfalcon
Loki gets a therapist and finds Earth hobbies that he enjoys in between bothering his brother and his friends.
- The Great Subconscious Club - Mikkeneko @mikkeneko

- Bridges - themantlingdark @themantlingdark
Thor and Loki write letters and fall in love.
- Chaos War - astolat
It was never easy to find Loki when he wanted to hide, but he wasn’t doing a particularly good job of it at the moment. Probably he didn’t think anyone from Asgard would be wasting their time hunting for him while the shining ones churned their way steadily through all the realm.
- Syrgja - LadyCharity
None of this was supposed to happen. SHIELD wasn’t supposed to find Thor and Loki on Earth three years after the battle. Loki wasn’t supposed to be a silent shadow of who he once was. And the Avengers…weren’t ever meant to endure the madness that would follow. “Cry, Loki. Cry”
- Fleet-Footed and Caught - Barkour
They caught up to him on the outskirts of a small and rainy town in the northwest of what Jane called America.
- Kingsverse - nayanroo
In an attempt to rein in the son that remains to her after Thor’s banishment, Frigga arranges a marriage between two old friends in the hopes that they can work together to heal an eroded realm.

The series where Loki and Steve Rogers start orbiting each other, and it gradually turns into a thing, and then into another kind of thing.

I’ll have to do a Part Two soon. I’m missing so many favorite authors from this post. THANK YOU for all the hours of reading!
