Is there anyone who hasn’t done this yet?? idk man. @sithmoonchild @kyluxtrashbin and @jinxedambitions

In the Marvel Universe, most Americans grew up with Captain America as their superhero, right? Almost everyone in the Avengers sees Steve as a living legend. They learned about him in school, wrote papers on him, dressed up as Cap for Halloween… the works. 

But maybe Steve and Bucky grew up with Thor as their legend. They read about Thor in books and excitedly discussed his superpowers. Bucky loved fantasy and science fiction, so he would check out Norse Mythology books from the library and read them to Steve while he was sick in bed. Steve thought mythology was a little boring and just let the words pass over him, but he’d do sketches of Norse gods for Bucky in his spare time.

So when Steve meets Thor, he can’t believe he’s actually real. He tells Thor all about his friend Bucky, who was obsessed with mythology and thought Thor was so cool. He asks Thor questions about the Norse myths, listening in awe as he talks about the past. He grins every time he hangs out with Thor, because he’s friends with a mythological being! And maybe he says awkward stuff like “I drew you a lot growing up, but I didn’t quite get your body right”

And when Bucky finally meets Thor, his face is priceless.

  • Jon: Is there anything I could get for you? Something to drink? Some tea?
  • Alanna: I don’t want tea, I want to find my daughter. And then I want to find out who took her in the first place, and I want to kill them.
  • Jon: Unfortunately we’re all out of bitter revenge at the moment, so it’s either tea or nothing.

I’ve seen a lot of people doing these, so I did too. This is my March reading list… wish me luck. I’ll need it.

A World of Firsts - First Date

TITLE OF STORY: A World of Firsts
AUTHOR: freudensteins-monster
GENRE: Fluff, Humour
FIC SUMMARY: A modern AU take on the tale of Loki tricking Sigyn into marrying him by killing Theoric and taking his place. 
WARNINGS/TRIGGERS/AUTHORS NOTES: This is the prize for my 1000 Follower Giveaway winner, lolomonster​, who requested a modern AU. Originally my brain went Loki-in-a-suit » FSOG, but I haven’t read/seen it so I couldn’t parody it properly like I wanted to. Then I saw this artwork by thetallsara​ (true, it’s a modern AU of Hades and Persephone, but I see some parallels between them and Logyn, even if no one else does) and thus the idea was seeded.

Anywho, lolomonster, I hope you like it, even if it didn’t up being what I originally planned. xoxox    

First Date | First Kiss | First Love

I hate Thursdays, Loki grumbled as headjusted his green and grey tie for the umpteenth time. Every time he put onhis suit (the less formal of the two that he owned) he regretted agreeing towork one day a week at his father’s Fortune 500. It was a joke really, but oneday a week spent in the IT department kept his father off his back and freed up the rest of his time for study and working part time in a used bookstore that he loved (and planned to buy when the owner retired - not that he’d tell his father that). The crosswalk sign turned green and Loki moved with the herd of nine-to-fivers on their way to get their mid-morning caffeine fixes.

As Loki waited for his name to be called, he fidgeted with his tie again before moving to the sleeves of his white dress shirt and folding them back. He was going over all the things he needed to get done that day if he wanted to keep his father away from his cubicle when the most amazing scent began to chase away seemingly indelible smell of coffee. It reminded him of the gardens at their house in Paris, the one his mother insisted on keeping maintained even though they visited maybe once every five years. Loki glanced casually about him until he spotted the source – a beautiful girl with flowers in her wild brown hair, a green florist’s apron around her waist, eyes the colour of warm honey, and Oh god, she caught me staring!

Loki almost gave himself whiplash as he turned fixed his eyes on the espresso machine, his fair complexion turning lobster red as the seconds ticked by at an excruciating pace.

- time for my favourite part of every Cassie book, the tarot reveal. The magician reversed is a fun one: “You know the guys with the three beans under the shells at carnivals? The ones with the stuffed animals that are going all moldy because they never actually give any away? The Magician Ill-Dignified is a lot like that: a salesman or con man who can make you believe almost anything. You can avoid him, but you have to be on your toes, because he will not seem like a deceiver.” This is an especially fun card because we are warned that it indicates a trick, a deception of some kind - but the warning is in itself deceptive. Cassie (and the reader) assumes the card refers to Pritkin, and then later, once the initial deception is revealed, to Rosier. But in fact the biggest trickster in the book is probably Apollo. There’s just a lot going on. 

- time for my least favourite part of every Cassie book, non-consensual vampire bullshit. Okay, sorry that was a little partisan. But I do have a major problem with the vampire-marriage-claim-biting thing in this book, or rather the aftermath of it. I don’t so much blame Mircea for doing it in the first place, because he’s pretty much out of his mind at this stage. I do blame him A LOT for treating the marriage as legit later when Cassie did not consent to it at all. She literally says before he bites her that she wasn’t afraid because "Mircea never bites her.” She wasn’t expecting it, she had no idea what it meant, she didn’t agree to this AT ALL and people (vampires) keep acting like she’s mad for not liking someone just deciding that she’s married to them. Same old problems keep cropping up with Mircea don’t they? He just makes decisions FOR Cassie and gets mad when she doesn’t go along with them.
