You and me
But yet we're the same
I hate your voice
But I use your words
You hate my style
But you use my moves
I hate your mindset
But I use your strategy
You hate my tears
But you share my pain
Do you get it?
You and me
But yet we're the same
Every day we bite the bullet
We survive to live and see another sunrise
We fight the good fight
To protect those we love
We want the ends to justify the means
So even though we hate each other
Even though I am going to kill you, just remember
You and me
But we're still and always will be the same

~BACK TO MIDGARD~
The morning came, as usual, far quicker than you would have liked. By now you were used to waking on your own, and no matter how early you would get up, Loki always seemed to be awake, dressed, and ready to begin. How much rest did Loki need anyway? He never came to bed before you were sound asleep and he was always up well before you. That could hardly have been enough rest for Loki to stay energized and rejuvenated enough. So long as you were in Asgard, maybe. Loki never used much magic except when teaching you. But even merely leaving Asgard would cost him a great amount of energy, and who could say what extent of magic both of you would be required to use on this journey?
You turned to the other side of

You were in no rush to wake up the next morning, and as you did you were slightly disappointed to discover that you were alone in the bed. you sat up slowly, running your fingers through your hair as you held the blankets close, still in love with the satiny feel.
You took a deep breath as you leaned forward and drew your knees close. Loki had said he would teach you magic starting today, though you had the feeling it wasn’t going to be one of those bright and early starts with an ever eager teacher. Loki was more confusing to you than anyone you had ever known (not that you could even remember most of the people you had ever known), and you were fairly certain he did it on purpose. He was a trickster, and such mind games as toying with a girl’

~THEY CAN'T BE STOPPED~
In the time since Loki had gone, you had just barely been able to actually fall asleep. You were tired (well, you were almost always tired), but it had been one of those times where you mostly fall asleep but you’re still vaguely aware of things going on around you. Every now and then you could barely hear a voice or two from somewhere outside, but there was nothing coherent. You were so close to actually falling asleep when…
The sound of a horn blasting reached your ears.
Your eyes snapped open. You knew that exact sound. That horn’s call was one that rang familiar in the recesses of your mind, and you knew exactly what it meant. There was an attack. Here. Now. You sat up quickly, looking

She inched closer to him, finding safety in the warmth of his arms. Though they had escaped the city, she was still terrified. Her pursuer was not the kind of man (if he even was a man) to give up so easily. He had hunted her for this long, he was not about to stop.
The small light by the bed dimmed slightly before returning to its normal glow. The room felt cold and haunted, as if they were being watched by those not of the living. She listened to her love’s deep breaths, hoping it would soothe her fears. He was still awake, but stared silently at the ceiling. Neither one of them spoke. They felt safer in the silence.
Her love turned his head toward her and kissed her forehead gently. “It’s alright, you know,” he said softly. “We’re safe here,”
She stared into her love’s eyes, wishing she could believe him. “You know we’re not,”

“So you intend to kill me, is that it, Loki?” Titus inquired as he gripped his sword and slowly began to move. “Are you so set on retribution?”
Loki watched Titus with his cold glare as the two began circling each other. “I’ve killed for less,” he replied simply, stopping as he faced the man before him as he tilted his head up slightly. “And taking the one thing I love from me – that is certainly worth killing for.”
Titus grinned. “You think you’re so much better than your brother. That you don’t act as rashly as he. But you are just as horrid. Even if you kill me your fate is sealed. Do you really believe that Asgard will be safe for you if you return? You will be executed. You have no salvation.” He taunted.
Loki held his gaze. Titus was right. Returning to Asgard would mean imprisonment and death. But for Caedra, he would return to see her safe.

To say that you slept in the next morning would have been an understatement. By the time you actually fell asleep, it was nearly seven in the morning, and the alarm clock by your bed went off at eight. You woke up just enough to completely turn it off (not just hitting the annoying snooze button) before you turned and buried your face in the pillow. You woke up again around eleven and was awake for nearly a whole ten minutes before you fell back asleep. Your bed was just too comfortable and your body too exhausted to do anything else.
An hour and a half later you finally got out of bed. You were still very tired but you were at the point where your mind was well rested even if your body wasn’t completely. You sat up and tossed the covers off as you stretche

Thor sat upon the throne, waiting. He had made his decision regarding Loki, but even now there was still lingering doubt in his heart. Was this truly the best choice? As much as Loki deserved such severe punishment, Thor was not sure he could condemn his brother. They may not have shared common blood, but they were still brothers.
With a sigh Thor rubbed his forehead. He had made his choice. As king, he must be able to make a decision for the good of the realm, not to ease his sentimental heart.
“Thor?” he heard someone say from his left.
Thor looked up quickly to see his father standing there, watching him. “Father,” he said, standing quickly in respect. “I did not think you would be here for this.”
Odin slowly stepped forward. “It may not be a pleasurable time but it is of great importance to you as king.” He said.

It was not until morning of the next day that Sif and Loki left their shelter and continued on their way through the vast land of Jotunheim. Loki was particularly upset that they’d had to wait so long, but the Jotuns had been very thorough in their search. Even leaving now was still a risk of being caught, but Loki would wait no longer to go after Caedra. If the Jotuns found them, then they would simply have to fight.
Sif gave a sigh as she stared out at all the land before them. “How far away are they?” she asked, glancing at Loki, who stood next to her, looking, watching – searching. He kept silent as he searched - his magic feeling for any signs of life of another master of magic.
“They are close,” Loki concluded as he turned and began walking.
Sif followed after him closely. Loki seemed more determined than ever, and much angrier than his usual self. “What is it?” she inquired.
“They are close to leaving,

Loki took Caedra through the palace, weaving his way through the dark and empty halls until he came upon an empty room. He pushed the door open far enough to slip through, trying to make as little noise as possible.
The room was small for a bed chamber, and resembled that of one of the healer’s quarters. Sif glanced around skeptically. “Where are we?” she inquired, forgetting to keep her voice low.
Loki glared at her, his eyes darting to the partially opened door. He gently set Caedra on the bed and unwrapped his coat from around her, covering her with a warm blanket. He brushed her hair out of her face, his eyes searching as he listened closely to her breathing. Though still shallow, it was not as weak as before.
“We’re near the healers’ quarters,” Loki answered, glancing back at Sif, who had moved to shut the door completely. “After battles or whenever there was an excess of wounded, they would use these rooms to tend to

Loki stood on the balcony adjoining his chambers, gazing out across the city with a grave expression. It was as beautiful a day as possible in Asgard, but he did not seem to notice. He didn’t seem to notice anything, for his mind was only focused on one thing – Caedra. What had become of her and Sif? Thor had set out after them the prior evening and if all had gone well he should have already returned. But he was not back yet, which only left Loki to wonder what had happened. Not knowing was driving him mad.
He fingered a piece of fruit between his slender fingers before releasing it to fall to the ground far below. He’d not had much of an appetite since he had been locked in his room. Loki pulled another grape of the vine and let it fall. Grapes were Caedra’s favorite sort of fruit. The child would eagerly eat any she was given, at any time. Loki could only give a faint smile at remembering. He missed her dearly.
“Loki?” he heard Frigga

Leaving Stark Tower, you made your way back to your apartment, not in any sort of hurry as you repeatedly ran Hawkeye’s suggested plan through your mind. It seemed plausible, and it was better than yours, considering you had no plan whatsoever. The whole “sneak in and steal the scepter” part still worried you, but you felt that you were doubting when there was no need. Whatever skills you had learned in the past were still engraved in your mind and body. Combine that with all the magic and talents of a rogue that Loki that taught you – you could make a very promising thief.
You got back to your apartment not too long later, and as you opened the door and came inside, you found Loki in the kitchen, at the

“And Loki cares for this child?” Odin asked, leaning back into his seat.
Thor nodded. “He will not admit it and he tries very hard to hide it, but I can see that he is different around her. He is gentle and caring – not to mention that he has spent nearly every waking moment by her side.”
“And this child – Caedra, you said her name was – she cares for Loki?"
Thor nodded again. “But that is understandable given the circumstances. She is a young, frightened child and he was the first to find her.” He paused. “What should I do, father?”
Odin sighed deeply. No longer was he king and still he practically giving orders. “It is not my place to tell you what you must do, Thor.” He answered. “I can only give my opinion.”
“Then I would be grateful to hear it.” Thor replied.

You remained seated at the table, still staring at Loki. You were truly going to go to Asgard with him? You knew that at some point in your life you had been there – the very name gave you a sense of familiarity. But no matter how hard you tried or all the many different ways you thought about it, you had no memories of anything in Asgard, save for the general knowledge of where it was and who may have been there.
“So when are we going to Asgard?” you asked Loki as you stood slowly from the table. Though you weren’t looking at him, you could feel his intense eyes watching you.
“Now.” He answered.
You turned quickly and stared at him, surprised. “Now?” you repeated. “As in right now?”

The car door opened suddenly as Anderson stared at you sternly. “Get out,” he said briskly.
You glanced at him sardonically, not caring for his rough tone. You turned back to Loki, who had made no movement. Only when you grabbed his wrist did he bother to even look at you, but he still kept quiet. You slid out of the car, holding tightly to Loki’s wrist.

It had been a bloody battle, to say the least. Countless soldiers from each side had been killed all over the palace. The chance of finding survivors among the carnage was unlikely at this point, but soldiers were still sent out to search. The people still wanted the hope that all had not been lost.
Hope. It was such a weak sentiment. What good was hope in a time like this? Hope would not get them anywhere with retaliation. Revenge, anger, that was all one needed. But Thor is ever hopeful…and pathetic.
Loki strolled down what was once a grand hall in the palace, taking little notice of the desolation around him. He had wanted, no needed, to get away from the screaming and crying of those who had survived. Their screams were aggravating to him. It probably would not have bothered him so much if he had caused their screams…
In the silence he looked around, trying to remember how the palace looked before the attack. Even he had trouble remembering what it onc

George Smith rode his fatboy motorcycle through the streets of down town. His tattered dirty blond hair blew in the wind under his wide black cowboy hat. George wore the same outfit he had worn for decades. The same look he choose when he first took human form all those years ago. He wore baggy brown pants, a light weight, long sleeve blue shirt and a red bandana around his neck. His brown boots terminated in silver spurs. To finish off the look he wore a long dark brown duster over all of it. This made him a shadowy and mysterious figure despite being a large man. George liked that. He preferred to not be seen and to be as quiet as possible. He didn’t speak much and when he did he kept his words to a minimum. He rode slowly through the town. Dusk was falling.
