S.H.I.E.L.D.'s weapon development facility was located underground, its surface area mostly deserted and spaciously fenced.
Loki stood on top of a small hill outside the guarded fence surveying the waste grounds, right next to the completely suited up Iron Man. Even Loki was fully armored, wearing the Horns of Mischief and carrying the scepter in one hand.
'There,' Tony's artificially rendered voice sounded somewhat alien beneath the iron mask when he pointed at the driveway leading underground and the transporter attempting to enter.
Loki nodded und waited patiently until the vehicle stopped, before he lifted the scepter and fired a blue gleaming energy discharge at it.
The van instantly exploded in a consuming fire taking down the gate and most of its framing structure.
'Go,' Loki commanded, whereat Tony ignited the jets and took off to carry on the deed of destruction.
Loki followed using portals of space and time created by the Tesseract powered scepter.

'Yes, yes, I'm well aware, that I promised...,'
Tony got cut short by a very upset tirade of insults against his person and he waited for the short moment it would stop.
'Pepper, I'm very close, you know? I just need a couple more days. I'll see you next week in London, I promise.'
The content of the insults turned obviously offensive and Tony took some distance from the cell.
'You know, I love you,' he seized the next moment of silence. But the line was already dead.
Tony put the cell aside and couldn't help but suspiciously watch it a few seconds longer, as if it might explode any moment.
Tony let out an irritated sigh and mechanically scratched over his chest, before he noticed what he was doing and stopped. He knew he shouldn't fiddle with it, but the scars around the arc reactor were still itching from time to time.
He took a deep breath, straightened in his chair and leant over the workstation again.
'Ok, where were we?'
He pointed the laser at the zoomed-in 3D hologram

Loki felt his mind calming. It was done. Tony Stark, the Iron Man, finally belonged to him.
But serenity was accompanied by exhaustion and Loki winced at the sudden sharp pain behind his eyes.
'Is everything alright?' Tony asked considerately.
'Yes,' Loki waved him off impatiently.
He had let Tony Stark keep most of his personality so he could continue performing his role. He only took away his free will.
Freedom... As if anyone could ever truly be free.
Loki rubbed his temple to get rid of the pain. He was tired.
He took a deep breath and straightened himself. There was still too much to prepare before he could permit himself some rest.
And he had a new tool at disposal. Looking over at the now-tamed Tony though reminded Loki of his last defiant gaze and he felt an urge for retaliation.
'Kneel,' he commanded and watched Tony go down on one knee obediently and without a word, lowering his head before him.
Strangely the deed didn't grant him the desired satisfaction. There was something

For the next eight hours, Tony buried himself in patching up the damage Thor had caused to the Mark VI suit, hoping to focus his troubled thoughts on the task and failing.
He just couldn't shake off the memory - no, the whole sensation - of Loki's presence within his mind, finding his imagination wandering back to him over and over again.
Back to his eyes, his voice, his nearness, his affection, his trust, his shared feelings. And somehow Tony felt like he was betraying him.
Eventually, Tony declared repairs for impossible without proper installations, dropped the attempt and decided to use the Mark VIII that Barton and Romanoff had brought from the Stark Tower in the upcoming battle.
He was just having his third Scotch, sitting in the hangar and staring at the red and golden Iron Man suit which was getting an upload of Jarvis's software, when he heard footsteps approaching and glimpsed over his shoulder to see Thor warily coming over.
'May I keep you company?' he asked attentively.

Tony finally broke free and jerked awake with a deeply shocked gasp, trying to focus on his surroundings and fit them into his troubled perception.
Something terrible had happened. Danger. Death. Fear. Defeat. Humiliation.
The concerned faces staring down at him were familiar though and granted him a touch of relief.
There was Pepper sitting right next to him and looking more shaken than anyone else present, Director Fury furrowing his brows behind her, Steve opposite of them, frowning with a gloomy countenance, Banner with his arms crossed, Thor at the end of the bed and even Barton, Romanoff and Hill watching him with anticipation from near the door. And they were accompanied by a woman Tony only knew from pictures as Jane Foster.
'Is this my funeral or why the long faces?' he wondered, still trying to shake off the shadows which grasped for his mind.
'You're lucky; it's not,' Fury responded gravely.
Tony managed to focus on the dark-skinned man.
'What happened?' he asked wearily, al

Defeated. But not broken.
Enraged. But in chains.
Asgard grew right in front of them, peeled out of the nothingness while Thor led Loki back home to be on trial and judged for his crimes.
But Thor didn't know what was to come. And so it hit him without warning when the Tesseract suddenly exploded in a blinding light, throwing him back and crushing him to the ground. The light was accompanied by a screeching sound that grew in intensity to the point of physical pain.
Then silence, darkness.
Along with two dozen grim Jötuns surrounding them.
Half of the Frost Giants instantly took care of the still stunned Thor, dragged him away from Mjölnir and held him down with combined forces.
While keeping a close eye on Thor, Loki held out his arms, impatiently waiting for the shackles to be removed. Finally freed, he allowed himself a moment to rub the pain out of his wrists, then took off the gag enclosing his jaw.
Thor's staring eyes were like fire. Rage, disbelief, humiliation and pai

Loki stepped through the aether and entered his throne room in Jötunheim, instantly adjusting his body to the freezing temperatures of this realm.
'My Lord,' the Head of his guards greeted him, respectfully bowing.
'Gather the forces,' Loki ordered, ignoring all courtesy. 'We have to be ready as soon as possible.'
The Giant took the command without a word, just lowered his head again and left to carry out the task.
Loki watched him walk away for a second, then swallowed hard and turned to approach his crumbling throne. He needed to sit for a while. His knees were still shaking.
So he dropped on the cold, stony seat and buried his head in his hand.
Why did he give in? Why did he surrender? Why did that man have to taste so damn good?!
Loki couldn't help but remember. Their first merging, their second, their third... And with every detail his blood rushed through his veins more and more ferociously.
Loki clenched his fingers to a fist and violently slammed it

'Loki?' Tony addressed him with an anxious sense of foreboding in his voice, following his glance up to the skies over Manhattan, New York, where the tremendous portal was opening right now.
'This isn't my doing,' Loki warded off any blame, though he knew exactly who was causing this sudden change of events.
They had come, way too soon: Thanos and his forces.
They had come to conquer Midgard as well as in search for him and the Tesseract. And they wouldn't stop before they had achieved both their goals.
'Then who...?' the Iron Man attempted to ask, facing Loki again; his palm was still resting on Loki's chest, covering his heart, and ready to trigger the repulsor.
An ear-shattering roar from above answered his suspended question, when one of the Chitauri war beasts broke through the opening, accompanied by hundreds of single warriors, swarming out like a flock of released birds.
'Damn,' escaped Tony, before he lowered his hand and took one, two steps back, watching the sky and already

"It's not a walk of shame if there was no sex involved," he grumbled.
The assassin's eyebrows shot up. "You stayed the night without boning him? I'm impressed, Stark. I thought you fed off of sex."
"Hah! Yeah, see, it may take a lot, but some of us can control ourselves," Tony replied. He obviously had had nothing to drink that morning and was rather irritable as a result. "Besides, maybe the god of lies has changed me."
A grin was playing at the corners of Natasha's mouth. Clearly, she wasn't buying any of the exchange. "I don't believe it, Stark."

A very full Tony Stark leaned back into his chair. Everyone at the table was staring at him. "What? Have you all finally come to realize how lucky you are to have such an attractive asset to the team? It's all right if you want to stare. Sometimes I catch myself in the rear-view and I have to pull over just to catch my breath."
"Actually, I was going to mention how this is the first time you've finished your food before everyone because normally you're making an arrogant ass out of yourself." Steve replied, matter-of-factly.
"Yeah, I was wondering why I didn't have the headache that usually accompanies these lunches." Natasha nodded, while making a face that seemed to say 'not bad.' Next to her, Bruce was smiling, while playing with the straw in his drink. Tony frowned, looking at him.

It hadn't been an easy task, escaping what those around him called 'justice.' Anyone who didn't know him intimately would think he had improvised at the last second, in an act of pure cunning. But Loki had a fail-safe planned during the entire battle in Manhattan. He knew that if he created a safety net, it would drain much of his magic from him and that could cost him in battle. However, he also knew that if his Chitauri army was defeated, that he would be taken back to Asgard to be punished severely for his crimes. And who would beg mercy for a monster?
The plan itself was fairly simple. He had made a copy of himself. One of miraged flesh that was capable of speech. Thor never had been able to tell the difference between one of his illusions and the real thing. But the

It was what had gotten them together if Loki is honest with himself, which rarely happens.
He had been passing by the others room in the Avengers headquarters; Stark had left his door open, so of course Loki had a peak. The view was amazing, and to top it all off Stark was no where in sight, so Loki had sat and watched, forehead pressed against the window. He hadn't noticed that the man had returned until the moon was setting, the sun rising, and he had turned to find Stark sleeping in the large bed. The next night, the door was open, Stark no where to be found, only the window had been spread wide, so that Loki could sit comfortably and watch the moon, with

"Oh my god, Tony, no. Please. Please tell me that's not a dead hooker." Pepper was standing by the wet bar on the top floor of Stark Tower, massaging her forehead from stress. Tony, who was currently carrying an unconscious Loki by the armpits, made a point to roll his eyes at her.
"Oh please, I would have at least called you to have a Persian rug ready for me." He headed towards his bedroom. "We'll just drop him in here, Happy." The driver nodded, guiding the rest of Loki's body through the doorway. After they laid him on the bed, Tony walked out while rubbing his palms together as if they were dusty. "Oookaayyy. Who wants to put him in jammies?" Pepper gave him a 'sometimes-I-can't-believe-you're-for-real' look.

"We're a lot alike, you and I."
Loki's startled out of his thoughts, away from the book he's holding by the voice of Tony Stark. He feels his nose wrinkle in almost amusement, and there's a quirk to his lips.
"We, Stark, are nothing alike."
Tony gives a brief chuckle, staring down at the book on his lap.
"I figured you'd say that."
"And now you're a mind reader."
Loki tilts his head to the side, resting his head on one hand, and Tony looks up at him.
"No. I guess Maru's people skills are rubbing off on me."
Maru. Loki has never liked Maru. She is a young woman; maybe twenty-five, and a bright minded musician. He might've liked Maru, if he'd met her under different circumstances, but he didn't, and it was actually a shame.
She might've been a good ally.

He was unfamiliar with this particular kind of anger. It ate at him, gnawing its way slowly through his gut like an infection left to fester. Sitting in the darkness, staring at the broken, useless wreckage that had once been his lab, he felt it growing, deep and dark inside him. SHIELD thought they could control him. They had warned him from the beginning, 'Iron Man is who we're here for. Tony Stark is not.' He had told them time and again that the two were one, that there was no Iron Man without Tony Stark.
And they had warned him again about the rules, the limits. And he had ignored them, as he always did, and he had done his own thing, as he always did. And they had retaliated. Apparently when the choice came down to working with Tony Stark or losing Iron Man, they had chosen the latter. And there was a rage in his heart at the injustice of it. He had never asked to be in this team, had never asked to be brought into their fold, forced to trust, to feel, only to be sho

Loki sighed, tucking his legs up a little further on the soft leather sofa. Today was the anniversary of Jormungandr's birth, and he ached to see him. However, they still had debriefing with the angry one to go through, before they would be allowed to part and go their separate ways. Thor had agreed to keep to himself where they would be travelling this evening, and for that Loki was glad. He was in no way ashamed oh his children, let that be known, but he was afraid that others would shun them, and fear them as Odin did. He felt tears prick at the backs of his eyes as he thought of those children Odin had more completely taken from him, such as Vali and Narfi. Vali, who had been slain, and Narfi, who had cast himself out in shame after being transformed into a wolf and slaying his own brother. Hle Sleipnir was perhaps the easiest but most hurtful to see, always being locked away for Odin's personal use. Fenrir had been found by Thor only a few years earlier, and had been r

Loki hummed quietly under his breath as he went about his task. It was something most found unpleasant, and bothersome, but to him it was just a menial task to occupy his mind when he wasn't busy. Plus, it made him feel helpful, and valuable, like he could contribute more to the group than just his magic, but also his willingness to partake in domestic chores, most of which the others found unsavoury. He cooked the dinner each night, making sure to cater to what each Avenger preferred, as best as he could. Tony preferred something quick and easy, if they were going to make him eat he hated for it to take time out of his workshop. Steve preferred something home cooked from scratch, as it reminded him of simpler times. Bruce always claimed he would be happy with whatever was easiest, but Loki had figured out he much preferred foreign foods, oriental, or Indian, and he often made sure to slip in some extra spices for the good Doctor.

Tony was breathing heavily, his helmet was broken, suit was in shambles, and he had less than 13% of the power in his armor left. He leaned his head against a broken slab of a building, trying to keep his breathing under control. He got separated from the rest of the Avengers after he was knocked into several skyscrapers in the city. He didn't know where the rest of the team was, but he knew with the status of his suit he would be of little help now. However, that wouldn't stop him from finding the other Avengers. He tried to stand up, but his legs didn't seem to agree with him. Buckling under the pressure of his body. So he sat there for a few moments longer fiddling with the suit, hoping that he could get it functional again, or at least Jarvis working anyways. A scuff

Tony's sleep wasn't very restful that night, he kept dreaming about green eyes, blood pooling at his side and dark, cold concrete on his back. He woke with a start, sweat coating his body and a fine trembling engulfing him from head to toe.
He searched his room with bleary eyes, looking for something that obviously wasn't there.
He got up on shaky legs and made his way to the bathroom, stepping under a freezing shower to chase away the remnants of his dreams. He let the water cascade all over him, calming his heartbeat and sharpening his mind once again. He turned off the shower and stepped in front of the mirror in his room, exanimating himself thoroughly in search of wounds, bruises, that something that his subconscious is trying to remind him about just between wake and sleep.
He swept his hands on his chest, near the arc reactor, on his abs, his legs, but in the end he found nothing.

At that moment, Thor strode into the room wearing his Asgardian armor, helmet included, all polished and ready for the occasion. He smiled softly at Tony and turned directly to Steve.

Steve grimaced, running his hand through his hair. "Again? Jeez Clint, suck it up. Okay, fine, I'll be right there." He looked Tony up and down as if guaging his sanity.

The windows shook as thunder rattled the tower. The wind howled and the sky was dark, clouds a deep grey as the storm brewed between them. Tony sighed as thunder rolled again, resigning himself to not getting any work done this afternoon. If the thunder were Thor's doing, he would've sent the guy to Yoga or something to calm down, or off to smash some shit with the Hulk, but Thor was away in Asgard, visiting his mother for the first time in a few months.

It was dark, everything that Tony saw was dark. Er, correction, the only light source seemed to come from his chest piece. He tried to get up, but was tied to a chair by chains. He struggled and struggled to try and break free, but to no avail. It seemed that the more he struggled, the tighter the chains grew. He winced in pain from the chains digging into his flesh, leaving imprints. When he looked up he saw a silhouette of man. The only thing that he was able to make out was the piercing emerald eyes that, in his own words, "felt like they were burning a hole into my eye sockets." Those eyes illuminated the darkness a little. They illuminated it as much as street-lights illuminate a dark road.
Tony's eyes grew wide when the figure laid an icy hand onto his right shoulder. "Tsk, tsk Mr.Stark. Does a little bit of coldness make you uncomfortable?" The figure taunted, circling Tony as a shark would circle its prey before it demolished it. "Who are you?" Tony asked, a sort
