Loki slowly inches forward, still holding the scepter.
"Sir, please put down the spear!" the man with the gun yells.
Loki looks back at you and smirks. You step back, knowing what he is about to do. He turns back around, looks at the scepter and looks back at the man. Without warning he jabs the air, sending a bolt of blue light towards the man. The man and everyone standing near him are knocked to the ground. Some men on the other side of the room open fire. Loki leaps into the air and lands on one of the men, stabbing him in the chest. He then throws some small, silver daggers at the other men, injuring them. He continues to send bolts of energy towards his foes. You press your back against the cold wall as you watch Loki kick one of the men into the wall, knocking him unconscious. The room is now dark except for some flickering lights and sparks shooting from the equipment. Loki pauses, looking around at the damage he has caused. You stand there, stunned

You take a deep breath and step on the accelerator. You have gone over the speed limit on several occasions, but this time you are really pushing it. Out of the corner of your eye you see the man fumbling around, probably trying to roll down the window.
"How about the sun roof?" you ask.
"That is a splendid idea." he grins.
You hold the steering wheel tight and reach for the button for the sun roof with your other hand. At this speed, any sudden movement would spin the car out of control. You quickly get the sun roof open and grasp the wheel again with both hands. The man crouches on his seat, looking around, contemplating about how to accomplish his plan.
"Try putting one foot on your seat and the other on mine." you suggest.
He nods and starts to situate himself. As you scoot over to make room, you feel his foot pressing against the outside of your leg. He peers out of the roof, scepter

Let's tear ourselves from the things that are holding us back. Let's paint our faces and hair in bright colors and crowd together until we're one giant throng of movement. Our hearts will not beat as one, but they will all beat.
Let's spread ourselves like disease. Let's separate our bodies from our minds. We'll all become things of energy and light while we break our beliefs and spit out our religions. Let's abandon rationality and thought and become animals of instinct.
Let's lose ourselves. Let's become someone else. In the time where we have no thoughts we will be people we want to be. We can be the sinners of good and those who live without fear. Let's splinter normality. Let's be angry and angsty and ecstatic with things we don't understand. Let's believe in something new and breathe something old. In every one of us lives something ugly, so let's let it loose.
Let's be. Let's not be. We're alive.

You peer around Loki. The men in suits were keeping their distance...for now. You go to reach for the motel key but Loki beats you to it. His hand slips into your pants pocket and feels around. He grabs the key and sticks it in the door. You are very glad he isn't looking at you, because you are blushing. Once the door is open, you quickly back into the room. He closes the door and you immediately sprint to the bathroom to grab your things. You turn to run to your bag by the bed when you run into him instead.
"Ow!" you exclaim, almost dropping your items.
"There is no need to rush." he says calmly. Too calm in your opinion.
"Are you kidding me?!"
You walk briskly to your bag, trying your best to not panic.
"What are we going to do about..." you glance over at the scepter. There wa

You start to feel excited as the car comes to a stop in front of a beautiful building with ionic columns and giant arched windows. Loki opens your door and helps you out. Once you are out of the car, you glance over at him. He is wearing black dress pants, a white collared shirt, a black tie and a black, knee length suit jacket. Around his neck hangs a golden scarf with small geometric shapes and a large vertical green stripe. The golden fringe attached to either end swishes as he walks.
"That is a lovely scarf." you say, reaching over and feeling the soft material.
"It is almost as lovely as you." Loki leans down and whispers in your ear.
"Well," you can't help but grin and blush. "I do have an excellent tailor."
You look down at the evening dress Loki conjured up for you. It is a bright, saturated green color that matches the green on his scarf. It is fitted and flows all the way down to the floor, complete with a sweetheart n

It is well into the evening when you finally turn down your dimly lit street. Stifling a yawn, you reach to turn your radio down. Most of the neighbors have been asleep for a couple of hours at this point. Even the animals are quietly slumbering. You turn your headlights off as you pull into the driveway. All the windows in the house are dark. Of course everyone has gone to sleep already. The only "night owl" in the household is you. You gather your things on the passenger seat. You then get out of the car and gently shut the door as to not disturb anyone. Your keys jingle as you slide them into the deadbolt of the front door. You step inside, lock the door behind you and tiptoe quietly to your room. It's dark so you try not to trip over anything. You reach out and use the wall to guide you. Once in your room, you collapse on your bed, exhausted. What a day. Sleep would be glorious. You stealthily slip into the bathroom, using your cell ph

You stand there dumbfounded, examining the haggard man. From what you could tell, he was dressed in strange, but interesting clothing. He wore an exquisite, long, black leather coat with dark green lining that went down to his ankles. He wore black leather pants and boots as well. His black, shoulder length hair is pushed back and flipped outward. You are especially intrigued by the scepter he is holding. It has a golden shimmer and there is a glowing blue orb nestled near it's pointy tip. You suddenly realize that you are staring.
"My help?" you finally reply.
You wouldn't have believed him if you had been in a room full of people. You would have assumed that he was talking to someone next to or behind you. Even now, you are skeptical.
"Yes," he states, looking around, "I seem to have ended up in the wrong location."
He seems to be genuinely confused so you decide to at least point him in

You try not to panic. You watch Loki as he strolls over to the other side of the room. He gently sets the scepter down on the floor by the bed.
"I claim this side." he says casually, plopping down on the bed.
You couldn't believe this was happening. You were about to share a bed with an attractive stranger that you just met a few hours ago. You resolve to just go with the flow since exhaustion has finally caught up with you. You place your bag on the floor beside the bed and unzip it. Good thing you brought extra stuff. You grab your shorts, shirt and bathroom items.
"I assume you didn't bring pajamas?" you jest as you look over at Loki, who is laying comfortably with his arms behind his head.
"I told you, I need not sleep."
"Yeah, yeah I know."
You wander into the bathroom to change. You close

"Sorry, what did you say?" He asked. "Tiramisu? A pick me up?"
"I think there's some in the fridge." Desmond interrupted, placing a hand on Shaun's shoulder. "You need a sugar rush, babe?" He asked, leaning down for a kiss. Shaun nodded, his lips pressing against Desmond's.
"You get the tiramisu." He pointed to a drawer behind Ezio. "Grab me three spoons?"
"You'll get fat." Ezio grinned, twisting around to grab the utensils. "So, what is this pick-me-up?" He asked, folding his arms on the table top. Shaun yawned, and rubbed a hand through his hair.

"Wow, this is quite the place" you say, looking around at the facility. It was like a smaller version of the facility you had been at several hours ago. Smooth, gray concrete walls surrounded you. Scientists and agents are working quickly and efficiently to replicate the equipment needed to stabilize the Tesseract. You lean on the table next to where the man in the plaid shirt, also known as Doctor Selvig, is working. You glance around and notice that Loki is nowhere to be found.
"Where's Loki?" you ask Doctor Selvig.
"He's over there." he gestures to a dark, secluded part of the room. You spot Loki sitting cross legged on the floor, holding the glowing scepter. He seemed to be in a meditative state.
"What is he doing?"
"Talking to the Chitauri probably."
"A race of aliens!" he exclaims excitedly. "He's probably receiving further instructions now that we have the Tesseract."
"What do the Chitauri want with the Tesseract?"

When he felt presence again Loki refused to open his eyes, or to move from his curled position. He knew where he was, what waited. He just refused to acknowledge that it was actually happening, again. Asgard was supposed to finally be safe…. To be a haven from them. They weren't supposed to get to him there. He let out shaky breaths.
"Now, now… where did your pride go? There is no need to be afraid…. Not yet."
The Other's voice, he had learned to know it blindly once. There had been a day when they had taken him from Jotunheim. Then they had dripped a stinking acid in his open eyes. It had burned and burned and they hadn't allowed him to close his eyes again until his sight had been completely burned away. It had taken days to heal, weeks maybe, he couldn't tell light from dark that time. The memory made his heart pound again. The hopeless darkness, relying on just his other senses for what they were worth. He bit on his lip, never again. He wouldn't go through it

In the beginning, there was nothing. Nothing but eternal space and emptiness. A universe ready to sustain life and allow it to thrive. The silence was deafening, and yet, there was no one to hear it. No one alive.
Then came the thunderous roar of one being. One being that would become the ancestor of all men, gods and demons alike. But his hands and the hands of his children, Odin, Vili, and Vé, they fashioned nine realms or what we know as today as the universe.
The higher tier consisted of Asgard, the realm of the gods, Vanaheim, realm of the Vanir gods, Alfheim, realm of the light elves.
In the middle tier was Midgard, realm of the mortals, Jötunheim, the realm of the Ice Giants, and Svartalfheim, the realm of the Dark Elves.
In the lower tier, the tier forgotten by all mortals and not acknowledged by the gods of Asgard, was Nilfheim, the realm of ice and mist, Helhiem, the realm of the dead, and
Muspelheim, the realm of the Fire Giants.

As Loki woke up his eyes seemed frozen shut. He let out a groan and shifted his arms. His muscles popped and groaned, protesting against any movements. He managed to crack one eye open. His face was glued to the rocky floor. Daylight hardly made it through the crack where he had come in through the evening before. The icicles had melted even farther, the dripping water was probably even what woke him up. He tried to sit, his back aching so severely he feared it would just snap in two as he pressed himself against a nearby wall. He was still spoiled, all these years of soft beds and warmed rooms had left him used to nothing at all. He stared ahead. He'd had that dream again, the memory. Thor had promised him years, centuries ago to stay by his side. Loki had deemed that a children's promise, had forgotten it even as he ruined Midgard and when he had fled his cell. But Thor had never forgotten, he had kept his end of their promise, came for him in the cold o

"Allen. Sorry. I shouldn't have did that...." He turned away from me and let me go. I looked at him and blushed.
"Wh-What?" I said. My voice became shakey but I held myself. Lavi looked at the door.
"Its against the Bookman rules.....to be in love with outsiders...I can't be attached to anyone. I'm nothing but an observer..." My heart was crushed. I couldn't reply in any way. He looked at me and his face seemed so sad. "I'm sorry. We can't...be together..."
"B-But can't you just...bend the rules?" Lavi shook his head. My heart pounded loudly. "Wait.....So I'm just an outsider to you? You.....don't care about me or something??" My eyes welded up with tears. I felt myself shaking. My palms were sweaty and I frowned at him.

Heading back to the large gates of Asgard happened in silence. Thor tried to make small talk about the other Avengers and their incomprehensible Midgardian habits but had trouble avoiding a few pitfalls when doing so. Besides, Loki wouldn't talk back because he was afraid his voice would be recognized, even though they were alone on the bridge, nobody would hear them out there. They stopped at the golden slabs of metal. They made any man feel puny, yes even the hulk. They were massive, proud, truly fit as the only way in and out of Asgard. The only physical way in. Loki's mind corrected him. He knew a few others, very few though and he was fairly sure he was the only one. The massive wall of gold was but interrupted by a seam that was not even big enough to fit a finger between. And then the real walls stretched onwards out of sight.
"You haven't seen them for long, have you?" Thor concluded as he watched Loki brush his fingers over the strong surface.

The storms on Jotunheim were never-ending. They would go on for months, ravaging the land with ice and snow as sharp as knives. The winds were so cold the sweat on a man's skin would freeze instantly. But freezing sweat and storms didn't bother Thor. Jotunheim's worst blizzard wouldn't kill his determination, he would face it, head held high and push through the merciless winds.
But Thor wasn't in Jotunheim to test the blizzards and ice. He wasn't there for the Jotuns either. He sought for someone. Yet his eyes darted around suspiciously, this someone didn't want to be found so it seemed. And Thor knew him well enough to be sure an attack could come.
"Loki!" he shouted.
His words seemed to lose power as the winds raged around him. Nothing but a weak echo came back to him. A chill had filled his chest, one not caused by the cold around him though.
This was useless, Jotunheim was so vast, and he could barely see a few feet ahead through the

Chapter 2: Redning Til Sjøs ~Rescue At Sea~
The early morning air was sweet and salty, a subtle mixture of the winter air being filled with the scents of the season and the usual salt of the sea from the nearby beaches. The sun wasn't set to rise for at least another half hour or so, and the stars were still easily visible, despite the lights of the city blocking most of them out. Despite being late December, the morning was warm thanks to the usual Texas heat that lasted year round. A small, content sigh escaped a young woman who stood leaning against the railing of a small sidewalk that led down towards the small beach area. The sight of the lapping waves at such an hour when most were still asleep or too busy preparing for the day ahead was soothing.
Anya let her smile grow a tiny bit as she leaned back, her hands gripping the metal bar of the railing to keep her balance. A small, light wind picked up, causing the young woman's white cosplay gown to flutter against her legs.

A loud shatter accompanied the explosion of glass on the floor of the Allfather's room. Loki froze with shock. He had only meant to look. Now the glass that had been a sun-clock lay in a thousand pieces across the floor. Someone had knocked on the doors to his father's chambers. Because he'd been on edge his sudden jerk had caused the clock to slip from its pillar to the floor. The doors swung open and Thor burst in. Mjolnir was aimed straight at the presumed intruder and his gaze was unforgiving.
"You made a grave mistake intruding the Allfather's chambers you ."
Thor stood baffled.
He lowered his weapon again.
"Why are you here?"
The younger set a few steps back.
"I didn't mean to- I just .I was curious. And father wouldn't tell me what it was .."
Thor's eyes fell on the glass shards.

Loki looked genuinely desperate.

Loki threw the door to his room back in its hinges and pushed his back against it. His breath was rapid from running and adrenaline. He heard Sif's heels go by his room without slowing. Apparently she thought he had run elsewhere, to Thor's room perhaps. He let out the breath he hadn't realized he was holding and a wheeze of a laugh. Laughing at himself. He had run out of all things, ran away from a single person. It was idiotic, and downright sad for someone of his stature. You have no stature. His mind was swift to correct that thought. For a man that once had such stature then. He lowered his gaze from the ceiling to look out into his room. It was like Thor had said, nothing had been touched. Dust lay on things in a grey blanket, nothing had been touched, not even for a bit of cleaning. The covers of his bed still lay on a heap as he had left them when he had woken up from that restless nightmare that had become truth by the end of that day. L

“If taking pride in my people and wanting revenge on those damned Asgardians is foolish, then I am a fool,” I growled. I had grown tired of seeing our kingdom suffer from Asgard’s torment, and this day was the final straw. The Asgardian prince and his obnoxious band of “warriors” had visited our home for the sole purpose of picking a fight and then fled when the battle grew too intense for them. It seemed that they thought they owned every realm, regardless of who inhabited it. They were arrogant. They were ignorant. And I’d had enough of suffering their offenses in silence. “I can do this, Father.”
“I will not see my son go willingly to Odin’s prison,” he answered firmly.

My master and my conscience was gone. I waited for him to speak to me, but nothing stirred, with the exception of my heartbeat speeding up. I even called to him.
"Master?" I asked. There was no reply. I had never spoken to him before and he had the silliest reactions to even the smallest of things. My dialogue would be a first. "Master?" I asked again. The voice remained dormant. This began to terrify me. I began to panic. "Is something wrong? Did something happen?" I asked. After a nerve-racking silence, I pounded my fist against my leg. "Answer me!" I yelled, waking my husband. He approached my bed.
