TalentedMy name is Jess. And my story is... Well it's different. I seem to attract trouble or maybe I'm the cause of it. Anyways I should probably start from the beginning...Talented1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
When I was little I found out I had this... Talent. If I looked into a persons eyes and told them to do something, they'd actually do it. I know what you're thinking it sounds ridiculous but I'm not kidding. I have this power to make people do what i say. I found out on the night of my 10th birthday when my mom and dad got into this big fight. Well this wasn't like most fights. It was just getting worse and worse and suddenly I heard a thump in the living room where they were fighting. I rushed in to see my mom on the floor and my dad looking so angry. I felt myself get cold and hot all at once as my heart hammered in my chest. I rushed to my mothers side her head was bleeding. It looked like she had hit the table when she fell. "What did you do? What did you do to her?" I screamed at him as I trie

'Natasha,' he said calmly, 'can you tell me where you hid the plane? This is important, Natasha, please.'
Clint groaned in pain as the scalpel narrowly missed his kidneys. Clint held onto Nikolai's arm, hoping to overpower him when the time came that he would slit his throat. Clint shook his head. 'She's going to be fine.'
He then looked at Steve who was being helped to his feet by Tony. Tony got him to sit on the crates and then he faced Clint and Nikolai again. 'One of ours is with her now. She'll live through this. I'd be more worried about yourself,' he said to Nikolai.
Clint felt Nikolai's grip tighten and his instincts kicked in, he dragged Nikolai's arm down and with the strength he had left, tried to flip him off himself. Clint fell to the ground and crawled away quickly. 'Tony, hit him again!'
Sage 14Loki sighed, undressing in the locker room and folding his suit as he was taking it off; it was poorly fitting and cheap, but he knew that it would do; he really didn't want to go back to his brother and his girlfriend, but knew that he probably had to. Still, he moved a little more slowly than he could have been moving, hoping for an excuse not to go back just yet.Sage 141 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
No such luck, so once he was redressed in his street clothes he left the restaurant, turned into the alley, and stepped into a shadow. He arrived in the living room silently, starting to his room. "How was the job brother?" Thor asked, but Loki ignored him; it bothered him that he was no longer truly free, that he had to be supervised by Thor. He knew that he deserved it, but that didn't mean that he liked it.
Once in the small room Jane was allowing him to use, he settled himself down onto the air mattress and tried turning his thoughts to the girl, Sage; she was having some sort of fun at least. Thinking about her unsettl
Sage 9Steve woke up after getting a few good hours of sleep, at eight o'clock; he had felt pretty good after helping Sage and didn't have any bad dreams after he had gone to sleep. Walking out into the living room he could still see her sleeping on the couch; it had taken her a little to get to sleep after she had gotten settled, but she looked peaceful now.Sage 91 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She was buried into the blankets, arms wrapped around the pillow he had given her while her head rested on the armrest; and she was making a light snoring sound. He grinned at her sleeping form and debated whether or not to wake her as she stirred in her sleep.
Sage felt a hand on her shoulder, gently shaking her awake and blinked at the blurry figure of Steve in front of her. "Is it morning?" she yawned, sitting up and stretching a little. Of course it was morning; she got up and pulled a pack of mini-toothbrushes out of her pocket, the type that already had toothpaste on it, and went to brush her teeth.
"Yes, it's morning; I was going
Sage 8Loki was eating another hamburger when he felt the presence in his head change from the numb one he had grown used to, to a one that was confused and conflicted. He frowned and tried to place the cause for the change, staring outside the window. He wished he knew what the presence was and why it was there; it had seemed to help him a lot in the past week, changing him slowly.Sage 81 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He sighed and wiped his face; what was wrong with him? He didn't feel like lying or cheating people as often and even felt a little guilty about what he had done to humanity in his spite for his brother and father. What was happening to him?
Sage was kept awake by a bad feeling in her stomach; it wasn't her own, but figured that it came from the part of her that was Loki. This made her confused and irate and she felt stifled being stuck in her room for the night; she needed to get out. Silently, she got up and started to get dressed and grabbed her going out gear.
Once dressed, the teenager made her way outsi
Sage 7"What did you think you were doing, messing around with the flight simulator?" Tony scolded Sage as James was escorting them both out of the building.Sage 71 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Calm down Anthony; it's not like I broke it or anything." Sage told him back, acknowledging but indifferent to his anger; she didn't care if he decided to punish her or something either, she'd had enjoyed working in the simulator.
"How did you manage to rank number seven?" James asked, looking at the fifteen year old kid. "How did you even manage to fit in it?"
She shrugged again. "I'll admit I had to tighten the straps as much as they would go, but as for the other part I'm as stunned as you are; wait, that thing was ranking me?"
"Yes, as anonymous," Rhodey told her, grinning slightly. "You'd make a good pilot though, with a little more practice."
A few days later Tony was getting ready for a date with Pepper, having made sure that Bruce would be home to watch Sage. "Okay, be a good girl and listen to Bruce while I'm gone,
Sage 6Natasha frowned as she thought about what Sage had said and quickly turned and put a hand on the youth's shoulder as she went to leave, catching her before she even managed to make it a few steps away from the edge of the balcony. "Are you saying that you'd rather not have emotions? Ever?" If that was the case then color the Black Widow concerned; she knew what it was like to not feel anything, but she also knew emotions and thought it was sad that Sage couldn't feel anything.Sage 61 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Sage turned back to the red head and leaned back against the balcony, putting her hands on the rail casually and making a smile towards the Widow. She could understand her point of view. "No, I am not saying that, Natasha; but you have to understand that the situation earlier was weighted heavily against me. I did not know how to handle emotions, and then I was suddenly confronted with quick, heavy emotions; I was angry at the situation, mourning for my father, and stressed out. Everything from the way
Sage 5Loki's consciousness adjusted to Sage's body far quicker than he would have expected, and by the time he was at Stark Towers he was considerably more comfortable than he had been and wondered if maybe she was experiencing the same phenomenon in his body. There was no need for him to adjust the way the body walked and moved, for he found that her body was used to movement and followed naturally the patterns she had set in it; causing him, as he walked, to be periodically stretching his arms or allowing them to hang, swinging, by his sides.Sage 51 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
And without feeling any emotion towards his current situation made it much easier to just walk into Stark Towers, as she most likely would, without having to talk himself up to it; the Avengers were his enemies, after all, and just walking up to where they lived was a blasphemous idea.
"Hey, Sage, we made supper if you want some," Piper offered as Loki walked in, and it at the faint aroma of cooked meet in the air that he noticed his stomach rumbled f
Sage 4The car was warm but Sage knew how cold it would probably be outside and looked down at her clothes, which would be insufficient in these conditions. Natasha handed her a jacket and an open phone, which she put to her ear. "Sage,"Sage 41 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Father," she put the phone between her shoulder and ear while shrugging the jacket on, nodding a thanks to the Black Widow.
"How are you doing? You're not hurt are you?" he went into a fit of coughing immediately afterwards, causing her to make a frown. She would worry about his condition and the expression, she knew, would fit it.
"I am fine father; not a scratch on me. I have enough medication to last until I get back. How is your condition?"
"I'll admit that it's not the best sweetheart; I may go any time this week to tell you the truth."
"I'm sorry father, if I could do something to help you I most certainly would."
"I know sweetie; just be safe for me okay? And listen to Tony when I'm gone?"
"I will dad; I love you."

Natasha Clint 6Clint had heard, her move, heard her words, but then he felt her touch him, move him. His eyes had flown open to meet her blue ones and he frowned as she kissed him. Something inside him warmed, changed. His face softened and then he broke the kiss, before it went too far. He stared at her and asked, 'What was that? I thought I was never to kiss you again.'Natasha Clint 61 year ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Natasha looked down at him still a little lost but she told him as her fingertips traced down his cheek to his jaw. "You can't kiss me... doesn't mean I can't kiss you..." she reached down one more time kissing him again enjoying the feel of his warm lips and his two day stubble. Then she broke the kiss and looked down at him for his reaction. Would he go cold on her agian? she waited.
Clint was a man without a country right now. He had no idea what to do. His brows raised at her and he studied her, this time she was a mystery to his usually impervious vision. He said, 'I do not understand... What do you want me to do, little spider
Clint and Natasha 8When Clint woke, Natasha was on the other side of the bed. They had drifted apart as they slept. That made things slightly easier for him. He pulled his pants back on and then looked at his jacket, it was cut in some very awkward places. Time to get a new one of those, he thought. He got off the bed and walked to the bathroom, his shirt wasn't going on, because there was no shirt to put on anymore. He looked at her as she lay in the bed, so peaceful, nobody would have thought her a killer.Clint and Natasha 81 year ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Natasha had slept deeper and without any ngihtmares so when she woke up at the feel of someone staring at her it shocked her that she had let someone sneak up that close to her. Then as her eyes flew open she realized it was a shirtless Clint standing there watching her sleep. She smirked "You do realize that it's not a good idea to sneak up on a master assassin right?" She stretched her lithe body letting him look at her and not caring.
Clint smiled at her. He was still deep in thought about her. Bu

Loki was still leaning against the wall he answered his brother "She wears my mark... She has chosen me... I have marked her... She is mine..." it was the closest Loki had come to telling his brother he'd fallen in love.
He looked to cap and told him "Thank you for caring for her... You are a honorable man"
Kate winced as Bruce fixed her up and said, 'Thanks, for you know... helping me. I don't deserve it after what I did to your friend. But thanks.'
Thor nodded, he could see the snake charm around Kate's neck from where he stood. He heard what Loki was saying, and saw what he was trying to tell him. 'I understand,' Thor replied.
Steve stood by Loki and checked him over too. Seeing no serious fl
Sage 3Sage opened her green eyes and stretched; the sun had just come up and she was ready to move into Stark Tower today. Her bags were packed and her father had made sure that Tony had everything ready. Standing, the teenage girl flexed her sleep-stiff muscles before opening the blinds to her room fully and letting in the sunlight.Sage 31 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Her room faced the east, so the sun coming in lit up the entire room through the sheer green curtains as she undressed to shower. Sage had never felt shy with her body, never been able to, and didn't care that her silhouette could be seen through the window past her curtains.
Be-de-deep be-beep be-de-deep be-beep; her phone rang from the charger and she picked it up, recognizing the ringtone instantly. "Yes, Master Kao?"

"Of course, Master Kao; I have a prior engagement later this ev
Sage 2Sage walked a little further into the room when her adoptive dad and Mr. Stark disappeared into another room, and she stood silently in the center, glancing around. This was one of the tallest buildings she'd been in, and she was studying the interior quickly and efficiently in that one glance. It was stylish, slick, and modern; designed to be both attractive and productive.Sage 21 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"It's a nice place huh?" Bruce asked, smiling as he watched the teen; he saw the way she was looking around, face blank, and figured that she was sort of awed.
Two pairs of green eyes met and the girl nodded, knowing that a smile would be expected and giving a mild one. "It is; the modern style is quite aesthetic but obviously meant to also be efficient. A good combination; yes?" she widened the grin instinctually; maybe she had gotten too good at faking her emotion, sometimes she wished that she didn't have to, but even her father became edgy around her when she didn't.
Banner nodded in agreement, only slightly pu
Avengers 13Loki confessed to her then "If you would leave me if I told you a lie...if you would decide that I was ... not worthy of you. If you would turn to look for an honest good person." loki had always tried to help when he was yonger. But everytime he would use his trickery he would be punished, even if it won odin the hammer of thor. He had remembered how he had tricked the dwarves out of killing him but he had had to have his mouth sewn shut as punishment for tricking them. Thor had been there. And had offered to hold him down durring the sewing. But now that he looked back on it. He thougth perhaps instead of forcing him to take his punishment perhaps thor was holding him down so he wouldn't hurt himself trying to escape the dwarves.

Avengers 12Thor kept his arms around her and kissed her forehead. 'I love you, Jane.'Avengers 121 year ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Kate shook her head. 'No, I want to... I do,' she said, sensing his disappointment. 'I seriously don't own much green. Not sure why, but I'll find something. Loki... don't be upset...'
Kate visualised her wardrobe, she had a green t-shirt with the word 'Elwood' printed on it, but she couldn't wear that, Loki would ask who Elwood was. She bit her lip. Damn, she thought.
Jane was filled with happiness. "I love you thor."
Loki felt hope come alive in him. Loki then kissed her and then backed up kneeling over her and held his hand over her and then whispered a few words of magic. As the most soft cool silk apeared around her it was a lacey nightgown with the same shade green as his eyes and the lace was black like his hair. It stopped mid thigh and it looked so good on her that loki smiled threw the searing electric shock that forced his hand to close to a fist and jerk back on its own. "You are a vision my treasure

Kate nestled closer to him and closed her eyes. His armour was cool and the metallic feeling against her skin soothed her.
Thor's eyes were still narrowed at Loki and he raised his hammer. 'What have you done to this woman? What magic have you cursed her with, Loki?'
Kate opened her eyes and put herself directly between Thor and Loki, shielding Loki with her body. 'Stop it! Leave him alone!'
Thor looked down at the tiny mortal and lowered the hammer. He frowned. 'Loki... explain yourself.'
Loki pulled Kate behind him gently shielding her from Thor. "I had no magic to bespell her with brother... She has given herself to me of her own free will... And she has me as well Thor... I have claimed her brother..." Loki knew he wouldn't believe him "Forgive me for the past brother... "

Loki teleported them to Thor and Jane. "Brother... I need you to accompany me to the avengers tower."
Clint pushed her against the wall, holding her there. 'Nat! Get a hold on yourself!' he then soothed his voice, 'It's going to be all right. For all we know, Loki could still be alive. He is a god, we all know how strong Thor was, even without his powers... maybe Loki is the same. He could still be alive.'
But he knew it wasn't Loki she cared about, it was that girl. It was the girl, because Nat was the girl too. Mourning for a love she knew she'd never have and Clint cursed himself for it.
Thor looked at his brother and the woman in his arms. He stood and asked, 'Are you sure this is wise, brother?'

Thor had been cooking breakfast for Jane in the kitchen with Darcy when he heard the knock at the door. He moved to answer it, but Erik got there first. Thor could hear familiar voices, talking heatedly about something and then he heard his brother's name. Thor rounded the corner to see the two mortal S.H.I.E.L.D agents entering the small makeshift lab, his eyes narrowed. Why were they here?
Natasha saw Thor standing in Mortal cloths. "Thor where is Loki? Is he living out his punishment in Asgard?" Natasha's eyes were cold as she said Loki's name.
Jane came in hearing what was going on. "Thor? What's going on? Who are these people?"
Thor's eyes remained narrowed at Agent Romanoff and Agent Barton. He introduced them to Jane, 'Ja
Avengers 5Loki was deep in the dreaming realm and after a while he became restless in his sleep. Dreams turned to nightmares. Himself as a Jotten monster. Ice and hate and blood everywhere. Thor was there crying as he lifted Mjolnir above his head "I'm sorry brother you leave me no choice!" then they began to fight. Loki didn't want to fight his brother. In his bed he moved restlessly and made small noises of pain as the nightmare continued. Thor and he fought but Loki tried to stop it "Brother stop! I don't want to fight you!

"Just...let me... rest a bit... the fall was worse than expected... How did my brother live threw it so unscathed?" Loki spoke more to himself than Kate then his eyes locked on her nerveous figure. She was scared of him. His eyes closed at the realization. "If you fear me... do not... my magic has been stripped from me... I am but a weak mortal man now..."

She retreated to the kitchen, making herself something for dinner. She wasn't tha
