Confession - BMWWFirst time he says it, she's poisoned and fighting for her life. There is no chance she can hear him. She's laying in fever and doesn't move even one finger. And he, on the other hand, is scared out of his mind, suddenly realising that there is no way for him to go on without her. Just after the others leave and he is alone at her bed, he leans to her ear. His fingers brush the jet-black hair on a side and he whispers to her; the words so quiet that he's not sure he's actually said them.Confession - BMWW4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"I love you."
When few hours later she's awake, he does not repeat his confession. Instead he gives her a lecture how recklessly and unprofessionally she behaved, letting their enemies catch her in a trap.
First time she says it, she's standing at his grave, clasping a shred of his cape in her clenched fist. Tears are strolling down her cheeks and harsh wind is hitting her face. She is tired and broken. She never thought something can hurt that much. She kneels on the ground and to

For a glorious twenty years he ruled over his Amazon sisters preaching peace and love. He even opened the borders of Paradise Island to the rest of Man's world. The perfect utopia was available for all to enjoy, but now, Themyscira was under attack on the very shores that were once closed to the feet of man.
"Themyscira will not fall while I am King!" Tristan promised. While his powers were almost nonexistent he was still a deadly warrior who should not be trifled with.
He was surrounded by his Amazon council, they were his inner circle. These were not only the fiercest of the Amazons, but also thd smartest and most experienced in combat. His three daughters were among them, the Princesses of Themyscira.
"Then we shall fight!" Artemis declared. Artemis had become Tristan's personal Champion when he chose to give up his powers. She fought for him and was willing to die in his honor. She raised her sword into the air. Every Amazon in the room joined her. They were al

He wanted to push her away, lest she would make him act. He could've done that easily, if it was someone else. But this woman this woman was different. It wasn't just the fact that she out did him by scores with respect to physical strength. There was something else, about her!
She had taken over his mind
"Thanks for saving me!" she whispered with uncharacteristic modesty which was restricted only to her tone, and not to be seen on her face. What a perfect restraint!
"I " he tried to breathe out quickly and noiselessly, the usual technique he employed to calm down his heart. But that didn't seem to work. Instead, his breath got stuck in his throat and he struggled to swallow without wincing.
The cold expression on the face he had so practiced for years just wouldn't stick. His lips seemed to have a brain of their own, for they refused to close the gap they created, something which his original m

The Leader's Helicarrier
The Helicarrier itself shook with the fury of the battle pitting Hulk and Shego against the Hulked-Out Avengers and the Hulked-Out Masters of Evil! It was literally a clash of titans, and the fate of the world rested on Hulk and Shego's shoulder, for they were the only ones that could stand a chance of defeating The Leader now! Still, in order for either of them to reach The Leader, they were both going to have to deal with the Hulked-Out Avengers and the Hulked-Out Masters of Evil, for there was no way of getting past them.
Hulk was dealing with Hulked-Out Thor, Executioner, Wonder Man, Ant-Man, Crimson Dynamo, and Iron Man; Shego was busy with Hulked-Out Enchantress and Wasp, though she was having an easier time besting them in combat than Hulk was with the rest of the Hulked-Out Avengers and Masters of Evil.

Distraught by her mother's wishes for her not to be with Captain Trevor, she returned to the Hospital to see Lieutenant Prince who had come around. Although sedated, she was quite lucid. They had told her where she is and that she had not much time left. Her injuries were beyond anything they could do, and her life lies in the hands of the gods. Diana came to her a bit melancholy yet was passionate about the young woman's plight.
Diana sees her enter with some fresh linen for her bed. "You Amazons are much too kind to waste your time on me." she says in a weak voice.
"Nonsense, you are a true warrior and deserve the best of care." replies the Princess.
The Lieutenant smirked as she looked to her. "Warrior...sad fact I am a warrior on her last mission. I was going to return Captain Trevor and the information and retire from the military."
The Princess seemed concerned hearing this. "But you are a hero among your people."

Walking out of the living room, Janet and Shego began to contemplate on what their next activity would be for the evening. It wasn't difficult for Janet to guess what, or rather whom to be more precise, Shego's thoughts were now focused on at this very moment. From the very beginning of the day, Janet and Shego noticed that Hulk had been distant, moreso than he usually is on a daily basis.
Neither Shego or Janet knew why Hulk was in such a mood, only that it was best for them to leave the Jade Giant alone in peace until he wished to speak with them on his own terms. Both women knew not to pressure or try to force Hulk into revealing what was truly bothering him. This could especially be said of Shego, who remembers quite a few times that Hul

Arrows rained down by the hundreds. It did not take long for Artemis to rally her Amazon sisters and take a full frontal assault against their attackers. By the hundreds, fully armored men stormed the shores of Themyscira. They wore battle armor similar to the Amazons and seemed to have the same kind of warrior's fire the Themysciran women had as well.
"Amazons!" Artemis shouted over the noise of rushing war. "Attack!" she commanded with her sword pointed towards the enemy. She pulled on the golden reins of the Pegasus and flew directly towards the heart of the enemy's swarm. With a great swipe of her blade Artemis took the heads of four of the male warriors clear off.
A wave of angry women followed her down her path with their swords raised. By the hundreds the Amazons stormed into battle. But this was not an epic battle like David versus Goliath. This was a war of the century! While one man would fall on the battle grounds, he took with him two Amazons.

Usually, when Clint and Natasha stayed over, they slept in the living room on the couches. There were only so many bedrooms in the Tower most were laboratories or empty rooms.
Of course, with Tony's resources he could probably buy another bed; hell, he could get one custom made and at his doorstep in half an hour, but with him being Tony Stark, the very definition of laxity and negligence and all, Clint and Natasha continued sleeping on the couch for all their visits. Tony, Thor, Bruce and Steve all had their own rooms, since they stayed over frequently.
Until the night Loki slept over. That was when all the usual sleeping plans went out the window.
Steve and Tony didn't fancy the idea of Loki sleeping in their room. Bruce had long since gone to sleep, and no one had the guts to wake him up. Besides, the Avengers were all willing to bet money that the next day they'd find an angry Hulk and a squished Loki if they roomed them together.

Odin slipped into his chambers, breathing unusually heavy for a powerful God like him. He slammed the door, and pressed his back against it.
He couldn't take it anymore. He was going insane.
Loki was everywhere.
Odin had woken in the morning to find emerald eyes staring right into his, flickering like an old hologram, but still there.
Odin had just very nearly screamed, but he managed to compose himself and ignore the iridescent image that followed him everywhere. He was hallucinating, he told himself. It was the grief that caused him this.
"It's not the first time you've lost a son," He said firmly to himself. "You got over Baldur's death just fine-"
By the Gods, he was a fool. Remembering Baldur was the very last thing he needed. Odin staggered away from the door, haunted by memories. He remembered how Loki had saved the kingdom by killing his little brother, who had been plotting against Thor. Had Loki not shot Baldur through the heart, Thor would not be

Loki's uneasy sleep was riddled with baffling dreams, some familiar, all painful.
At first, there were only sounds. Voices. Voices belonging to people whom he unfortunately knew quite well. But the words they spoke made no sense.
You're in Avengers Tower. Midgard.
He remembered feeling stunned at those words. Why? He'd been the one to come to Midgard on his own accord.
Your daddy- er, had something important on and left you with us.
The voice was Steve's. Loki tried to calm his fried brains and think of a logical explanation to Steve's strangely gentle voice, but came up with nothing.
She does not seem to like me
The words were associated with Romanoff. The spy he'd almost brought to tears, the one he'd threatened with the life dearest to her. Does not seem to like him? What was he thinking?
Thor is here? Where is my brother? Can I go see him?
Tell him I miss him.

Loki sniffed in displeasure at the bombardment of questions. "Well, yesterday at night Father threw a party, and everyone was fussing over Brother as usual, so I went back to my room to read, and Mother came in to say good night and tucked me in-" Loki paused, looking around. "This isn't my room. Where am I?"
"Avengers Tower." The man who had grabbed Loki said automatically. Loki raised an eyebrow in confusion. "On Earth. Er, Midgard."
Loki's eyes widened and froze. "Midgard?" He inhaled sharply. "I am on Midgard?"
"Who are you?" Loki was becoming visibly distressed. "Why did you bring me here?"
"Technically, you brought yourself-"
"My name is Steve Rogers," the calmer man interrupted the other one. "This is Tony Stark. Your daddy- er, had something important on and left you with us."
Tony cringed. Steve was terrible at lying. No one would believe such a vague story, especially someone like Loki.

His body ached like never before and there was a coppery taste in his mouth suspiciously like blood.
Loki flipped his pillow over to sleep on the colder side, and winced as the stiff movement shot pain up his arm.
What had he done this time? He wondered idly. He often got into mischief and to count the amount of trouble he got himself into was impossible. But usually, he didn't break every bone in his body while doing it. At least, that's what it felt like.
The lights came on suddenly.
He groaned, and blinked in the brightness, trying to roll over but giving up when his ribs screamed in protest.

Odin had seen what had happened two nights before. Loki had betrayed Thanos, joined forces with the Avengers, and all was well. He'd prepared for a celebration when his sons returned. A huge party that would have put Thor's coronation ceremony to shame. Everyone would join, would whoop as the seven saviors of the universe strode proudly in through the gates. There would be a feast, and perhaps, for once, everyone's attention would be on the younger brother.
Yes, Loki would like that, Odin thought with a smile. He tried to remember the times Loki had smiled as a child. He didn't remember Loki ever smiling much, but when he did, oh, those smiles could have lit up Jotunheim.
Hey there now
Where'd you go?
You left me here so unexpected
You changed my life, I hope you know.

It took the Avengers about a few seconds to realize they were completely naked but for a towel wrapped around their legs.
Honestly, Tony thought, of all the places they could have been when the Chitauri attacked, they had to be in a bathhouse.
At least Natasha had a few guns in her outfit. That woman had guns everywhere. Tony spotted her taking down three Chitauri as he and the other two led the screaming crowd out of the building. Suddenly, there was an explosion of pain in the back of his head as something hit him. His knees buckled and he collapsed into a corner.
A hissing Chitauri burst through the ceiling and landed in front of him, its spear glowing as it pointed at Tony. He could indistinctly hear Steve shouting his name, but he was frozen. Without his suit, he could do nothing. A ball of energy formed at the tip of the spear, just before the Chitauri gave a strangled scream and collapsed, the shot missing Tony by a few millimeters.

"Oh, just go entertain yourself somewhere." Tony replied, completely exasperated. Since morning, Loki had been poking around everywhere from boredom, and had broken six cups, four plates, and a toaster.

He didn't dare let him anywhere near Clint, who had been sulking in the kitchen after Thor stopped him from putting an arrow through Loki's eye.

For one terrifying moment, everything went black. Loki scrabbled at the metal in his right arm, right above his wrist. It was only thousands of years of experience that allowed Loki stay calm. Loki forced himself to take deep breaths, sending tendrils of magic to his arm.
It wasn't a very bad wound, no essential arteries of nerves were cut, and Loki's heart rate slowed. It seemed that Thanos was only attacking as a last ditch effort.
Thanos pulled the scepter out. Loki gasped and swung his leg across, trying to catch trip him, but Thanos easily spun around and dug his elbow into Loki's stomach. The pain made Loki's head spin, and he felt warm coppery liquid rising up his throat.
