Loki's face froze into a stony, cold mask of pain. You were a little on edge when his eyes got dark.
"Odin," Loki began. "Is old and weak. He lacks proper judgment. My mother is too dedicated to Odin to realize my agony. And Thor "
Loki's hands clenched into fists.
"He's a foolish, reckless, stupid, arrogant, selfish, egotistical pig."
You looked at Loki's face, which was still transformed into its dark expression. You reached over to touch his hand, but he harshly took it away. Your eyes dropped.
"I'm sorry," you said, "I didn't mean to upset you."
Loki said nothing. He simply stared ahead, lost in a mental maze of hate. It jarred you to see him like that. You were afraid; one sudden move, one word, could send him off the handle. You had never seen it, but looking into

You hated Loki being gone. Genuinely wanted to kick Loki being gone in the balls. It was three days since he had left, where was he? You tried to distract yourself with work and rehearsals with GG, but it didn't work out so well for you. You were more frustrated with yourself than anything else. You barely knew Loki, yet you missed him more than you missed your mother on the very first day of school. It was brutal. You knew that part of it was because you had recently slept with him, but there was more to it as well. You missed having him around. You missed just sitting and talking with him. You even missed him calling you 'dear.' Amazing how so much can change in such a short time, isn't it?
But on that third night, you heard three slow knocks at your door. You jumped up from your couch, eager to see him. But when you opened th
Loki X Reader-Chapter TwoYou tossed a pillow over to Loki when you reentered the living room. You had changed into your only clean pajamas: a [f/c] cotton tank top and [f/c#2] shorts. You crossed your arms over your chest, both to express your distaste for the current situation and to cover your chest.Loki X Reader-Chapter Two3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"You can sleep on the couch," you said flatly.
Loki smiled at you and set the pillow down on the couch. You had left your blanket out for him. You scowled at him. Damn his good looks, you thought.
"Thank you for your hospitality," Loki said, still smirking.
You mumbled something unintelligible and started to walk off to your room.
"If you need anything, I'm down the hall!" you shouted.
You walked quickly to your room and shut the door. You leaned against it and ran a hand through your hair. It was going to be a long night (or morning, rather).
You groaned as you opened your eyes and looked up at Loki.
"What?" you grumbled.
Loki X Reader-Chapter ThirteenYou didn't realize you had fallen asleep until Loki roused you. Your head still hurt like crazy. You looked up at Loki.Loki X Reader-Chapter Thirteen3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"[Name], we appear to be floating a few feet above your couch," Loki said, tone confused.
You looked down. You were indeed floating just above the couch.
"Ack!" you cried.
You both suddenly dropped back onto the couch. The jarring motion caused a pang in your head.
"The hell was that?" you asked rhetorically.
Loki shrugged. The two of you sat up and focused on the TV. You still laid your head on his shoulder, and his arm was wrapped around your waist. You couldn't quite hear the TV, so you were about to reach for the remote. Before your hand got to it, though, you heard the volume getting louder. You looked up at the screen. The volume was definitely going up. Your eyes got wide. However, you noticed the pain in your skull beginning to le
Loki X Reader-Chapter FiveOnce you got home, you elected to do one of the two things you could do when your brain was wracked: play your guitar (the other was numb your mind with TV, but you didn't feel like it). You needed to write some new music for Xander's lyrics, anyway. Xander was one of the founding members of your band, Gunmetal Graces. You and he started the band two years ago, and you had become pretty successful in your city. He wrote all of the lyrics, you wrote all of the music; a very agreeable setup for all involved. You were the only girl. You played lead guitar and sang, giving you a few badass points. Xander played bass and sang. The remaining two, Derek and Adrian, played drums and rhythm guitar respectively. The four of you hoped to do big things, but for now you were confined to [your town].Loki X Reader-Chapter Five3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Loki X Reader-Chapter TwelveYou sat up to get out of bed, but quickly lay back down, instantly regretting moving at all. You were SORE. You looked down to see hand-shaped bruises on your sides. Your mind formed one word: DAMN! Loki was awakened by your shifting. He noticed the red bite mark on your collarbone, then was shocked at the purple marks he had left on your hips.Loki X Reader-Chapter Twelve3 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
"[Name], I am SO sorry " Loki spat out frantically.
"No, Loki, it's fine," you replied. "It was thrilling last night, to say the least. But if you could take it a bit easier on me next time "
"What have I done?"
Loki sighed deeply and put his face in his hands. You rubbed his shoulder and kissed him on the temple.
"I'm fine, Loki, I promise," you whispered.
He looked to the side at you. You smiled warmly and stroked his hair. He smiled, but he still felt guilty. You could tell he was still in mourning of the life he

"Good morning, my dear [name]," he crooned.
You mumbled some sort of unintelligible reply.
"Sleepless night?" Loki asked, clearly mocking you again.
You whipped your head around and glared at him. He chuckled at you.
"You kick in your sleep," you said. "Hard."
"My apologies. I didn't mean to keep you up. However, I slept like the dead."
"If only," you muttered to yourself.
"What was that?"
You fixed yourself a good cup of coffee and sat down at the table. You remembered the dream from last night, before Loki invaded your bed. Your cheeks flushed a little, and you hoped to heaven that Loki wouldn't notice. You looked over at him from the corner of your eye. He was once again shir
Loki X Reader-Chapter NineLoki woke up earlier than you did. By a few hours, actually. He woke up to find you cuddled into his chest, breathing slowly. He smiled when he saw you. He stroked your hair gently. Memories of the previous night flooded his mind. He had wanted you so badly, lust made even stronger by the fact that you wanted him. He stared at you for a long time, drinking in your beauty. He drew little swirls on your cheek with the tip of his finger. He chuckled happily whenever you would snuggle closer to him.Loki X Reader-Chapter Nine3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Later on in the morning, your eyes fluttered open to find Loki holding you to him. You smiled, looking into those jewel-like eyes you adored so much.
"Good morning, my darling," he purred.
"Good morning, Loki," you replied.
He kissed you softly and tenderly, but it still sent fire through your veins. His, too. You continued to kiss, passion slowly growing.

"No," he replied, smiling at you.
You drummed your fingers on the kitchen table as Loki gobbled up the pasta dish you made for lunch. You weren't as hungry as you thought you were.
"You know, this arrangement hardly seems fair," you said.
"To what arrangement are you referring?" Loki asked.
"The one where you know so much about me and I know next to nothing about you."
"Well, what do you want to know, [name]?"
"Why you're here. Why you're hell-bent on taking over the world. Like I've said twenty times."
"And, as I've said numerous times, I won't tell you just yet."
You made some sort of sound between a groan and the call of a howler monkey. Loki chuckled.
"You'll warm up to me soon enough," he said.
He was about to pat you on the shoulder, but you backed up.
"Right. My apologies, dear."
"And I told you to stop calling me that!"

Masquerade-Chapter 16One of the palace servants had brought you and Loki some breakfast. You sat on the steps leading to Lokis bed, while Loki sat in his chair. You both ate silently, still uncomfortable in each others presence. The air became stuffy and stale in the space between you. To your unbelievable relief, Thor suddenly entered Lokis chambers.Masquerade-Chapter 163 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Good morning, Eira, he said solemnly. Good morning, brother.
Lokis face contorted into a feral scowl.
I told you to quit call--, he began.
You snapped your head to Loki, giving him a look of warning. You figured that, if you wanted to help Lokis demeanor, his treatment of Thor would be a good place to start, even though that start was intended for you. Loki looked down and away from the muscular god in the entryway.
Good morning, Thor, he said quietly.
Thor gave you a faint smile before looking to his dark-haired brother once more.

"Pepper, come on, please " Tony said, quietly and sadly.
"No! Forget it! Goodbye, Tony!"
With that, she stormed out, heels clicking against the sleek black floors of Stark Tower. Tony ran a hand through his brown-black hair and let out a heavy sigh. His eyes stung, but he refused to let tears overcome him. He slammed the last of his scotch and set the glass down bitterly. The next thing he knew, he was in a handsome black suit with a red shirt and tie and was headed to his Audi.
"Well, Jarvis, time to do what I always do when I'm low," Tony muttered in his usual flat voice.
"Drink too much and sleep with some woman that you'll never see again?" Jarvis replied.
"Bingo. Don't wait up."

"I rather like that Sheldon character," Loki mused.
"Who doesn't?" you said, frustrated with yourself.
You rested your chin in your hand. Out of the corner of your eye, you saw Loki raise his feet, about to set them on the coffee table.
"Ut-tut-tut-tut-tut!" you cried, raising your hand. "Not on the coffee table."
Loki raised his eyebrows at you, then nodded as he put his feet back on the floor. You looked over at the clock on the wall. It was getting to be around noon. Time was passing so slowly. You dreaded the coming of night.
"What do you have in terms of food for a midday meal?" Loki suddenly asked.

"Mmm," you groaned at being woken up.
"[Name], I'm really sorry for my behavior last night," Tony said lowly.
"Headache?" you asked, pointing at Tony's shades.
"Like none other. Anyway, I'm really sorry. But I appreciate you coming to get me. I want to make it up to you."
"You owe me a cookie."
"Oh, yeah, huh? Let me do my usual hangover routine, and you can go home and change into something more suited to going out in public, and I'll take you to any bakery you want, okay?"
"Thank you, [name]."
With that, Tony walked off toward his room again. You decided today, you'd let him brew his own coffee. You found your keys and headed out to the garage.
Masquerade-Chapter 14Tony and Bruce walked side-by-side back to Loki's room. You and Thor had also headed back to see Heimdall, so that he could keep an eye on the situation.

"We're back," Tony announced cheerily.
Loki looked up in revulsion. He chuckled upon seeing Bruce.
"I see you've brought the monster this time," Loki said disdainfully.
Your hand twitched.
"Where is Eira?" Loki asked.
"She's taking a little break," Tony said. "Why, did you want some eye candy?"
Jane had given you a discourse in Midgardian slang earlier in the week. Knowing what Tony's rhetoric implied, you were simultaneously offended and flattered. Loki looked appalled.

Your intuition was seldom wrong about people like him; you knew he was going to be incredibly important to you, as well as incredibly dangerous. You couldn't take your eyes away from his. Those green orbs were pulling you in like a tractor beam. You passed under a streetlight, and he did the same on the opposite sidewalk. The orange light shone perfectly in his slick black hair.

"Where am I?" you whispered to no one.
"You're in SHIELD's hospital wing," replied a voice.
The voice was male and quiet. You tossed your head over to where it came from. There was a man sitting a few feet away from your bed. He had blue-gray eyes and light brown hair. He was dressed in a black vest and pants. His arms were crossed over his chest. He was watching you intently.
"Who are you?" you asked, throat feeling raw.
"My name's Clint Barton," he replied.
He stood up and brought his chair closer to your bed. He sat down, leaning towards you.

"I am never ready to be in the same room as Loki."
You opened the door. Loki sat brooding near his window. When he saw you, his eyes showed a glimpse of contrition, but upon seeing Tony, they were filled with disgust.
"What is he doing here?" Loki demanded.
You were determined to keep your composure this time. You walked over to Loki, not getting any closer than a few feet.
"I needed a second opinion on your progress, Loki," you replied sternly. "And Tony is very skilled at reading people."
Loki scoffed and turned away. Tony shrugged and sat down with his blueberries. You remained standing. A few minutes went by.
"So, is this how all of these sessions begin, with intensely uncomfortable silence?" Tony asked.

When you sat down in the comforting water, you took a deep breath of the steam rising around you. The bath smelled of sandalwood and flowers. You spent who knows how long in that bath, trying to calm yourself from the days events. After maybe an hour or more, you became calm and relaxed, if a bit melancholy. You took some time to breathe in the steam and let the hot water soothe your tense muscles. You lay your head in the bath. The quiet calm of the water let you slough off some of the pain of your memories and fade into an even more restful state.Masquerade-Chapter 153 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

"I suppose Thor will bring them in here later, to show off his good work."
Loki scoffed and shook his head.

"So, after Bruce caught me out of the sky during the battle with Loki, I randomly started talking about shawarma," Tony started. "I had heard of it somewhere, and I didn't know what it was, and I wanted to try it. Naturally, we had to apprehend Loki first, but after that business was taken care of, we went to the shawarma place you just came from. Mind you, we had no time between getting Loki into cuffs and going out, plus the restaurant was nearly destroyed. We were all covered in dirt and bruises.
