Wine until bottom
And pain of fame
He was my father
His anger like flood
We sealed our Oath
In fire and blood
The flame extinguished
By Oath we're still bound
Through tears and pain
No rest to be found
The blood on my hands
And my hand in chains
What was it for
When nothing remains?
The Light we sought, burns
So close, yet so far
We are not worthy
To touch a star
Burning flame, take me
And clean the stain
Take the cursed Jewel
And end my pain!
In fire it started
In fire it ends
Just like my father

An Old LegendAn Old Legend3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Ages long gone and ages long passed
Shades of grey, man's memory fades fast
The glory days told of old
Shines as brightly as silver and gold
Before the dark, before the strife
Before many of the spans of life
There lied the glory that men bore
The gilded light of Westernesse's shore
That era of brilliance, that age of wealth
That time of wisdom and of great health
Those days are passed or so it is said
As now the great kings of lore lie dead
Is there a hope against such reckless hate?
Where does it lie? The enemy's gate
Draws nearer every day
And now there is little that holds him at bay
But still we hold on to legends and tales
What more will we have when the strength of men fails?
There is still one yet who holds the power
To aid this land in its darkest hour.
From father to son, the title has been given
In the shadows these brave people have striven
To drive away the darkness that besets all
While there is still life in them, men shall not fall
I know the king shall come again, f

‘Tauriel!’ Legolas heard his own voice rebounding against the walls of ice after he felt his feet on save ground again. The prince put his daggers away and breathed in and out slowly. Exhausted he felt and that was a strange feeling for the elf. But after such heavy fighting for such a long time, his muscles hurt and he felt the bruises bouncing softly and painfully under his armor. He looked over his shoulder down the cliff, where the huge chunks of the tower “bridge” disappeared in the mist beneath. He heard them crashing the ground and splitting into pieces and he grimaced inside. That Bolg filth was worth dying this way.
“May he burn forever, together with his father and all the thousands of Orc filth that goes after him.” He thought with a grimace. Legolas looked up then, his eyes following down the stairs where Tauriel fell off when he was standing on the tower at the opposite of the bridge. His stomach started to

You slowly moved on the comfy bed with your bare legs touching the silky fabrics that your skin would never get used to. Nothing of that sort existed naturally on Earth but you considered yourself to be the luckiest woman on the planet because your set was imported from Asgard. You barely opened your eyes to come across with a familiar scene, your eyes lingered on the wide window on your left side and they were slightly overwhelmed with the moonlight peeking into the room each time the curtains moved. You stretched your arms up with a wide smile taking over you and the cool air sneaking inside tickled against your arms that you just put over yourself. You could feel that your nightgown was almost completely pushed up, nothing was certainly covering your legs, and you felt the absence of warmth on your right side that you were very used to feeling with your big husband sleeping next to you half naked every night.
You groaned and turned toward your right side to see that he wasn’t

You yawned as you closed your book. With a sigh, you glared through your window, smiling as you did so. Soft, fluffy snowflakes were falling down from the sky, slowly covering your garden. With another yawn, you decided it’s time to get some hot chocolate, cursing the fact that you had to catch a fever today. Why didn’t it wait until tomorrow? Wrapping your blanket around you once again, you got up and stumbled over to the kitchen.
Your husband and son weren’t home; they went to see a movie. Actually, you had been planning to join them, but you felt like crap when you woke up this morning, so you had decided to stay home.

Contrary to his recent actions, Thor was not stupid. He might not always think about what he was doing, might sometimes - or often - run head-first into danger without thinking about the consequences, but even Thor was very much aware that he had - to put it nicely - fucked up royally. He also knew that he had to do something to prevent a war from happening. Honestly, he could understand Loki's rage and anger. Maybe he would have acted the same if their situations had been the other way around ...
Without really noticing it, he stalked through the abandoned hallways, turning left and right and wandering aimlessly, deeply in his thoughts, his panic and frightened state of mind.
His father would know what to do. Yes, wise Odin, old Odin. Just a nod of his head, a handful of words from his mouth would be enough to dispel this uneasy situation, to calm Loki - and his father, oh Lord, Loki's father! - and make sure any declarations of war were

It had been a long time since you had someone to depend on, yet you just had to suck it up because your son counted on you to be there for him. His father left a month before the baby was born, and claimed in a letter that you were smothering him with your pregnancy, but you didn’t go after him, you’d figured he was cheating anyway. Love was truly a cruel mistress. It took you a while to stand on your own two feet considering that you had no family left, but thankfully your friends Elizabeta, and Lili supported you a bit. Seven years later here you were with responsibility on your shoulders, and a cute, cherubic faced child beside you.

Thor spent the next hour thinking while outside of his temporary chambers sounds of busy servants (and possibly maids, but who could know for sure? Thor had never seen a female Jötun and he wasn't sure they even had females) could be heard. He seemed to be inside the palace of Jötunheimr; a thought that sent cold shivers down his spine. Being surrounded by former enemies ... Yes, they had a truce now, but Thor was no stranger to the old tales of the great war and the many Aesir and Jötnar who had lost their lives in battle. Sometimes, he had wished he'd have been able to take part in the war to prove his strength and to defend his home, his family and friends, As he grew older, however, he'd started to understand that war was nothing to be desired. He had seen old and honored but crippled soldiers - permanently scarred in body and soul and mind -, had seen widowed Aesir women and orphaned children and had realized how

Oropher was inspecting his men, the army which was preparing to march to Mordor. How many of them would perish? He had no idea. It was never a predictable thing....
"Thranduil?! What the hell do you have in mind?" Oropher shouted angrily. "I told you to stay. Someone must take care of the kingdom."
"You need everyone, you know it."
"I need everyone to do their job, Thran," he said, a bit calmer. "Including you, my son."
"I can fight."
"You can get lost more easily than your young son," said Oropher.
He didn’t speak of this often. He still felt responsible that Thranduil got hit by dragon fire and became blind. The sad thing was that Thranduil was still one of the lucky ones of that great war.
"I'm sorry," he said with shame. "So be it. You give me no choice."
Oropher dismounted and got the rope he saw and then moved to Thranduil's elk.
The young elven child ran from the door to the king. Oropher gave him the rope. "Hold this."

AtarIn later days, when Maglor lingered on the sea shore by himself, as the winter winds nipped at his fingers and made it even harder for him to play than it normally was, and thoughts entered his mind about hating winter, he would sometimes remember winters in the past. Before his brothers and father died, before the kinslayings, before the Silmarils had even been forged, and for a brief moment, the years would melt away and he would feel warm again. On those days, he did not remember the look on his brothers’ faces as they died, or the way his father had turned to ashes before their eyes. Instead, he remembered how when they were children they had believed in such silly stories as Atar Hrive and how indulgent his parents had been of their behavior on those days. It couldn’t have been easy, even after Maedhros and he had grown old enough to know better, and had started to help their father lay out the gifts that night, there had still been five of them to listen to.Atar3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

I do not know the Marvel comic books save for what Wikipedia might tell me. Therefore, the characters that appeared in the movies are going to be based more off their movie versions. I'm mixing real Norse mythology in as well, but with my own twist on it, so everything is going to be a little off what 'real' canon is, but not enough that I feel it's a real AU. Considering that Marvel AU's their own canon all the time, though...well....
There are also homosexual dealings. Keep in mind they're not actually related to each other if brotherly love taken to the physical level squiks you out. Also keep in mind that Norse Loki is Omisexual and will boink anything with a pulse, no matter what gender he or it happens to be.

Being the class representative of Class 1-A of Kaijo High always gave you these kind of jobs that made you feel like you're some kind of slave of both the class and the teachers.
Just then, you heard a thunderous noise accompanied by female voices quickly approaching you.

All of the papers were scattered on the floor with you in the middle of it like a newborn kitten in a puddle of water during a rainy day. Panicking, you started picking them up. Your classmates would most probably sue you for getting their papers dirty. You'll deal with this obnoxious guy later.
