Pairing: Loki x Fem!Reader (ft. the Avengers)
A/N: My attention span is basically shot, so I’m surprised I even managed to finish this tonight. This was a request from @crazyqueenofgotham, I hope you enjoy! Figured I’d mention the fem!reader thing now that I’ve gotten asks about male readers and there’s a fair amount of female pronouns and stuff at the end of this.
When you had first explained to Loki the concept of Christmas, he hadn’t been very impressed. He didn’t understand why children thought a fat man in red came down the chimney to deliver presents, why people brought trees into their homes and hung things on them, or why Santa Claus traveled by use of flying reindeer. You had expected that reaction - it was Loki, after all - and wondered what had happened to change his mind about the whole Christmas thing.
When you, Clint, and Natasha had left the tower for a mission, the room you shared with Loki hadn’t really been decorated for the holidays. The most you had done was put out stockings, which Loki had just shaken his head at, and switched out your normal hand towels for the winter-themed ones. Naturally, you were confused to see your room completely decked out in Christmas decorations when you returned less than a day later.
“Uh… Loki?” You called, taking in the Christmas tree, lights, and general festive cheer in the room. It even smelled like Christmas cookies, which you had no idea Loki actually knew how to make.
“Yes, darling?” Your eyes finally settled upon the dark-haired Asgardian prince, seated by their gas fireplace. He had a thick book in hand, finger stilled over his place on the page while he glanced at you with a curious gaze.
