The Avengers: A Friendly Conversation - Part 1"And what exactly are you doing?"
"To see if we can get any positive matches as to where the Tesseract is."
"Oh... So, shouldn't you be doing something productive in the meantime?"
"Relax, Cap. Let Banner chill. He's been working hard."
"Sorry. I'm just kinda antsy today."
"It's okay, Steve. We're all under a lot of pressure."
"Does anyone know where Goldie Locks is?"
Steve and Bruce both chortled under their breath. Tony had the best jokes for the worst times.
"He's supposed to be in the heli-carrier. Other than that, I have no idea," Steve answered. Bruce was staring at the computer screen, biting his lower lip.
"So, Banner. About this 'other guy'....."
"I'd rather not talk about him."
"Okay.... Any progress on the magic cube, then?"
"No. Nothing yet."
"How do you stay calm?"
"Tony...." Steve warned.
"It's a secret."
"Well, can you share it?"
"Alright," Tony said. He grabbed a pointy metal object and went over to Bruce, who was caref
The Avengers: Security Cameras And DecisionsLoki was sitting in his 'special' cell on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s heli-carrier. He was recently defeated by The Avengers. He was disappointed, but was extremely annoyed with what they had to do to him. They put him in hand restraints and attached a muzzle on his mouth. Loki thought the gag was a little much. I mean, what did they think he was going to do? Talk them to death?The Avengers: Security Cameras And Decisions3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
'This is ridiculous,' thought Loki. He leaned his head back onto the transparent cell and sighed into the gag.
Loki decided to lay down and possibly get some shut eye before The Avengers sent him off. He laid on his side and brought his arms as far as he could up to his face. This wasn't the best looking position, but it was the most comfortable Loki could manage. He closed his eyes and hoped to drift off to sleep.
Thor was walking through the halls; he got random congratulations from S.H.I.E.L.D. agents while he walked. He smiled and thanked them, but he had something other than celebration on his mind...

"Yeah, well... me too! And I got him first."
"Hulk!" young Steve Rogers yelled. He was playing with action figures with Tony. Steve was about to knock the Loki action figure off the tall play-building with his own figurine when Tony picked it up. Then he used his action figure to beat up the Loki one instead.
"What, Steve? And for the last time, my name is Bruce," Bruce Banner said in annoyance. He was the oldest of the Avengers, being twelve, and he was their father (in a way). He was the one the other four and five-year-olds complained to and depended on.
"Tony's being mean!"
"I am not."
"Okay, that's enough! Steve, what happened?"
"Tony took Loki away from me."
Bruce was confused for a second, then he saw the toy in Tony's hand.
"Tony... Did you take Steve's toy?"
"No! He didn't take him, so I took him and beat him up."
"Yeah, but I wanted to beat him!"
"Steve, maybe Tony wanted to beat him, too--"
The Avengers: Day OffThe Avengers (Tony, Steve, and Bruce) were sitting at their HQ lounge room just chilling out. They were relaxing because they didn't have any villains to fight.Tony had been feeling, well, not like Tony lately. Even he didn't know why he was acting so glum lately. It was probably just all the stress from being a member of The Avengers. Tony just sat on the sofa, day-dreaming and staring out the window.The Avengers: Day Off3 years ago in Humor More Like This
Steve had noticed that something was bothering Tony. He just didn't ask him about it because he felt it was rude. None of the other Avengers, whether in the room currently or somewhere else, noticed like Steve did. Now it was just him, Bruce, and Tony. He had to ask now, while almost everyone was in a good mood.
"Hey, Tony. Can I ask you something?" Steve sat up from his previous reclined position to look at Tony on the other side of the room. Tony was still day-dreaming, and didn't hear Steve.
"Tony? Tony!" Steve stood up and walked over to the other couch. He was practically standing r

Following him were Thor and Tony.

Loki turned abruptly into an empty healing room. He shut and locked the door behind him. About five seconds later, Tony was seen running into the closed door. Loki was panting, trying to catch his breath after running from The Avengers.
"Open the door, Reindeer Games," came Tony's voice from the other side of the door.
"A-Absolutely not," Loki replied breathlessly. He sat on the cot in the tiny medical room.
Tony turned around and looked at Thor.
"Wanna give it a try?"
Thor walked to the door and spoke loudly, "Brother, please come out. We promise not to hurt you."
"That's what you said last time."
"And did we hurt you?"
"You humiliated me. And I will not stand for it," Loki crossed his ar
The Avengers: A Friendly Conversation - Part 2Bruce was still in the lab. It was getting late, as he could tell by the darkness outside. He also noticed that there was a storm occurring. Bruce wondered what from because it was perfect weather earlier today. He began getting nervous, waiting for his teammates. Tony, Steve, and Thor had been gone for a while. He had no one to talk to because Natasha and Coulson went with them. Bruce's work amount was quickly depleting as the time passed.The Avengers: A Friendly Conversation - Part 23 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Come on, come on, come on... Shit!" Bruce was frustrated with his computer. It finally shut down on him. He removed his glasses and stood back from the computer. He sighed and rubbed his eyes. Bruce stood back for another minute before he put his glasses back on, and then went on to another project.
While Bruce was looking for some papers on a desk, he knocked over something. Whatever it was made a clinking noise as it hit the floor. He groaned and bent down to pick it up. Bruce smiled when he held what had fallen in his hands. It was t

"Uh... Another two to three months."
"Ohhh, dear Odin! I don't think I can do it, Thor."
"You've been doing great for a whole ten months..."
"It's been that long?"
"Hmph, feels longer."
"I know. Just look on the bright side--"
"Oh, don't give me that 'bright side' nonsense! There is no bright side."
"Really? The bright side isn't finally being freed of your imprisonment in Asgard? Well, more specifically the castle in Asgard. The bright side isn't maybe getting revenge on The Avengers?"
"You're not supposed to put bad notions in my head, Thor. That's what I'm here to get rid of."
"You can't dream?"
"When did you become so sinister?"
Thor laughed. He was talking with Loki in Loki's room. Obviously, Loki's trial went well. He wasn't banished for eternity... But he was punished. He had to stay locked up in the Asgardian castle for a year or more, with a set of rules. Thor was allowed to visit Loki once every day for a period of up t
The Avengers: Rushing For GratitudeBruce awoke with a start to the sound of an explosion that shook all of Stark Towers. He knew that the sound must have resonated throughout the entire building. Bruce prayed that they weren't under attack again. He jumped out of his bed, throwing the covers off of his legs, and opened the door to his room. He stood in front of his now open door, wearing only a pair of shorts.The Avengers: Rushing For Gratitude2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"JARVIS, what was that?" Bruce asked the robot in charge of the building.
"I believe it was Mr. Stark working on a project of his. Would you like to know what project?"
"No, not really."
"Very well, then. Anything else you need?"
"I wish you luck when trying to sleep again, sir."
Bruce smirked and said, "Thanks, JARVIS."
"Any time, sir."
Bruce walked back into his room, rubbing his tired eyes. He laid back down in his bed, but knew that it would be impossible for him to fall asleep again. Bruce looked at the clock in his room. He had to meet Tony in the 'experiment room', as the billionaire calle
The Avengers: The Super Awesome Tickle FightLaughter emanating from the living room in Stark Towers pretty much woke everyone who was inside up. It was only eight in the morning, which a lot of them weren’t too happy about. Natasha was up first. She walked briskly out of her sleeping quarters to the room homing the source of the laughter. She froze when she got in the doorway.The Avengers: The Super Awesome Tickle Fight2 years ago in Humor More Like This
“Are you guys serious?” she asked the two men who were on the couch. One was Steve and the other was Tony. Tony looked at her and laughed. But Steve was the one completely in stitches. The billionaire had been tickling the Captain and still was.
“Wanna help?” was Tony’s response to Nat’s complaining. Clint appeared next to her in the next minute.
“Nat, what happe-- Oh my God.”
Steve was hysterically laughing and begging for Tony to stop.
“Hey, Barton. Either of you wanna help me?” Tony was still tickling Steve. Natasha rolled her eyes. Tony stopped to give the Captain a breather,
Thor: I Believe It's Called Being TicklishLoki had been sitting in the bed in his room for as long as an hour already. His father, Odin, had screamed at him for acting like a child and not an Asgardian. Loki's antics have been questionable lately. Now, he's staring out the window of his room with a scowl on his face.Thor: I Believe It's Called Being Ticklish3 years ago in Humor More Like This
Then of course comes a knock on the door. "Brother? It's Thor. I haven't seen you in a thousand years it seems. May I please come in?" Thor asked and sounded worried about his brother.
"Go away, Thor. I really don't want to talk right....." Thor entered the room, "..... now," Loki said looking at his brother with an annoyed expression.
"Loki, I am your brother. What's wrong? You can trust me," Thor looked concerned about his younger brother.
"Thor, I told you, I don't want to talk to anyone now. I.... I just want to be left alone to think," Loki said now crossing his arms.
"Think about what, brother? Was it something I did? If it was I meant no harm to be done to you," Thor walked over to where his brother was and

"You know, we still have to go through that whole training thing later," Clint said through a mouthful of cereal. Natasha rolled her eyes.
"Everyone has to be there," Black Widow said next, eying the men in the room. She noticed a while ago that Tony was missing.
"Where is Stark?" she asked anyone who knew.
"Dunno," Clint said in return.
"Probably sleeping," was Steve's guess. Bruce had been quiet most of the morning. He just sat at the kitchen counter, stirring and drinking his coffee.
"I think someone should wake him. We all know how long he can take to get ready, so it would be only right to wake him now to make sure that he is on time with us," Thor said, then took a bite from his banana.
"Okay. But who's gonna wake the guy?" Hawkeye said.
Everyone stared at the silent Bruce Banner.

"This really isn't a good time," the frustration was evident on Bruce's face. Tony considered leaving.
"Please," Bruce almost pleaded and looked at Tony directly in his eyes.
"Fine. I'll come back later... hopefully when you're in a better mood."
Tony left the room without another word coming from Bruce or himself. He decided to skip the kitchen and the 'hanging out' room of the heli-carrier, and instead head to the target range.
Tony grabbed his repulsor arm from a case inside one of the vaults of the ship and headed back upstairs to go test his armor. Tony wasn't very surprised to see Hawkeye also practicing in the room.
"Good evening, Barton," Tony acknowledged the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent.
"Hello," Clint looked at Tony and shot his arrow at the same time, still getting a perfect bullseye. Tony smirked, hooking up his armored a
The Avengers: What Started Out As ScienceBruce was working in the lab on the heli-carrier late one night. It was his routine to barely get any sleep, and just continue working. He was very passionate about his work, as well, which is why he spent most of his time in the lab. But tonight was the third night in a row Bruce didn't sleep. It was finally starting to set in on him.The Avengers: What Started Out As Science3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
He knew that the rest of the team was probably resting in their sleeping chambers on the flying ship. Just thinking about that made his eyes droop. Bruce just rubbed his tired eyes through his glasses and continued typing and reading on the computer.
Another Avenger that found himself unable to sleep was Tony Stark. He surprisingly fell asleep at only 10:00, which was early for him. But sadly, he was awakened by some nightmares he had. Once one was finished after he woke up, another one would just start up when he fell asleep again. So, Tony just decided to leave his room and maybe get some decaf coffee from the heli-carrier's kitchen.

Thor: A Gust Of Wind - Part 1Thor was always grateful for everything he had. He was grateful for being the son of Odin, and for having an adopted brother like Loki (even though the past couple of months have been interesting). But Thor was never as happy or grateful in his life as on the day his first and only child was born. He and Sif had a beautiful baby girl.Thor: A Gust Of Wind - Part 13 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Sif insisted that she be named Thora, after Thor. But Thor felt that she should be called Kari, meaning gust of wind; for when she was born, Thor was blown away with her beauty. Sif agreed.
Sif and Thor loved Kari so much, but they were warriors. They were almost always in some sort of battle. In the first three months of Kari's life, Thor was rarely home with her. Sif was with her more often, but not enough.
Then one day, when Kari was only two-and-a-half months old, Thor was summoned to battle. But this battle was different, mainly because he wasn't actually 'summoned'. His brother, Loki, was planning on ruling Midgard. Thor had many connections with

"Shut up," Thor mimicked Loki. Loki looked up from his book to glare at Thor.
"Thor, I will tell father if you don't stop."
"What do you mean 'so'? Father could punish you, and--"
"But he won't. I'm just trying to hang out with you, but you wont let me. You won't let anybody near you. The only things allowed near you are books."
"I find people, like yourself, much more bothersome than books. Books are quiet and, frankly, more interesting than you, Thor."
"Really? You think that thousand year old book is more interesting than me, the God of Thunder?"
"You're only fifteen. And yes, it is."
"What's it about?"
Loki blushed, but he didn't know why. Maybe it was because he knew the book would seem boring to Thor. He thought about lying, but decided against it.

"I'm still tired," I said to see if anyone cared.
"Okay. But now it's 9:45. Really? You can't stay up any later than this?" Tony said, amazed at my lack of energy.
"I usually want to go to bed right about now."
"Well, what do you do with your girl friends when you have sleepovers with them?" Bruce asked.
"I've honestly only been to one sleepover in my entire life. And that one was pretty hectic."
Loki tried to muffle a laugh that crept up on his lips.
"I-I'm sorry," he said, now smiling, "How hectic?"
"There was a party, where boys were invited... and then the sleepover only had girls."
"Hey, but we're guys," Tony said.

"Okay. Forget the sleepover remark, then," Bruce folded his hands.

"What sucks?" asked Steve.
"Nothing. C'mon, let's go. I'm tired," Bucky said. Steve was puzzled as to why Bucky had been so glum lately. He figured most of it was due to him being a lab rat for HYDRA for months.
"Alright. Whatever you say," Steve said as he put down his drink and paid for it. The two friends walked out of the saloon. As they were walking back to the resting quarters, Steve felt he had to ask what was making Bucky so upset.
"Hey, are you feeling okay?" Steve asked. Bucky looked at Steve briefly, then turned his head forward and started jogging. Steve sighed. He, too, began to walk faster to catch up to Bucky.

I was actually really nervous of how the superheroes and former villian would act around my grandma and grandpa. Tony pulled up in the driveway, and everyone was silent. They were all staring at the house in front of them.
"I think I should go in first," I said. Steve turned his head to look at me.
"Why?" he asked me.
"Because I need to give them a heads up of what you guys really are like."

There were thousands of people there to see their favorite Avengers. We were lucky enough to get a front row place behind the gates.
"This is sick!" Rebecca said.
"I know!" Amina chimed in.
"When do you think they'll get here? And wouldn't it be awesome if they come in their costumes? Like, Chris Evans can have his shield. Tom can have his horn helmet. And Jeremy Renner can have his bow and arrows," I joined back in on the conversation.
"Yeah! I'm gonna run out there and steal Chris for myself!" Rebecca joked. We all laughed.

It was early in the morning. Too early for anyone in Asgard to really be awake. Thor thought about a lot of things as he watched Loki sleep. He knew, truthfully, that Loki was the reason he couldn't sleep. Thor didn't want anything to happen to Loki. He loved him too much for anything bad to happen to him.
Loki slept like an angel, Thor observed. Thor was not only watching Loki, but he was studying him. Loki wasn't snoring, much to Thor's delight. Thor also noticed that Loki's eyelids fluttered a tiny bit every time he exhaled. And the moonlight from Asgard's three moons shined down directly upon Loki's pale skin. It made him seem almost ghostly. But Thor knew he was real, and that Loki was th

Loki and I arrived first. We set our chairs, blanket, and umbrella down. And I showed him how to set up the umbrella. Loki looked strange in swim trunks to me. I think it was mainly because I was so used to seeing him with that heavy armor over many layers of clothing. It was nice to s
