Eyepatch (LokixReader pt. 2)Your head hurt. Like hell. You turned your head slowly to the side, twisting your hands in the sheets, and groaned groggily. You heard someone say your name a few times and your eyes slowly fluttered open. You were in a room, white and sterile, with no personality, lying on a comfortable bed. A man, with dark hair and wearing a purple button down shirt, leaned over you with a pleasant smile, "How are you feeling?"Eyepatch (LokixReader pt. 2)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
You grumbled an intelligible reply, lifting a hand to rub your hair out of your face, and looked around, "Where am I?"
"The S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier," he said nonchalantly, taking your pulse and shining a small light into your eyes. You jerked out of his grip and sat up angrily.
"What?" you pushed him away and threw the sheets back, swinging your feet off the bed, "Get away from me!"
A soft voice in the corner said your name and you looked over to see Nina-no, that wasn't right-Agent Natasha Romanoff leaning against the wall. Her lithe body was zippered into a leather jumpsui
Absurdity (LokixReader pt. 3)You had to admit, the Helicarrier was impressive.

“This way,” Agent Romanoff said, leading you towards a metal door that slid open when you approached. You stepped through it into the Bridge. S.H.I.E.L.D. agents bustled about carrying papers, sat typing at computers, spoke into their comms devices, and looked like they were doing important things. Dr Banner was chatting science with Tony Stark, the billionaire leaning casually against the glass-topped table on the highest level of the large tiered room. Steve Rogers, in an old-fashioned checked shirt and neat khakis, looked up from his chair and instantly rose to his feet, ever the soldier.
“Ma’am,” he nodded respectfully to Agent Romanoff, who brushed coolly past him with scarcely a second glance. You to

The blond god nodded, his cloak and hammer materialising out of nowhere and he turned and strode down the corridor. Natasha looked over at you. You could see the decision on her eyes and shook your head pleadingly.
“Natasha, please,” you said, “don’t leave me.”
“I have to stop him,” she said, as though that explained everything. She grabbed the arm of an agent running by, a man with cropped brown hair and green eyes, “You. Listen to me very carefully. On the flight deck there is a jet, fuelled and ready for take-off. You are going to take her and get her to that jet, do you understand me? She is of the utmost importance right now. You get her to t

“I am sure they have told you my true name.” His voice was quiet and cold, carrying the crisp bite of frost in his consonants and you shivered slightly, but still taking another brave step forward.
“They did.” You said faintly, taking yet another step forward. You didn’t know where you were finding the courage to continue walking toward him, even after everything the Avengers had implied he had done, but somehow kept putting one foot in front of the other.
“And yet you refuse to call me by it.” He was seated on the bench, head bowed, dressed in the light green button-down and black trousers with a thin, dark green tie that you had seen him wea
Battle (LokixReader pt. 15)“Do they seem to be getting louder?” you asked quietly. Sif looked over to you with a tense gaze. The roars of the Frost Giants were drawing closer and closer to the large golden doors of the palace. Sif readied her shield, sliding her sword out of the sheath and you lifted the mighty spear, gripping it in your hands. The two of you stood in the centre of the room, staring at the doors.Battle (LokixReader pt. 15)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
“How did they get inside the city?” Sif asked, searching for another answer beside the obvious one of Asgardian defeat. You shook your head, nonplussed, then froze. Your hands tightened angrily on the spear as the answer came to you. You gritted your teeth.
“The water pipe.” You growled under your breath, “I told Fandral to have it guarded, the fool! Why didn’t he listen? If I discover the jotuns came through the water pipe…” you couldn’t finish the threat, interrupted by the sound of a heavy shoulder slamming against the golden d

You looked down at the peaceful face of Odin, glowing under the light of the golden magic that had been supposed to keep him safe. You were sitting by his bedside, holding his hand and watching the soft rise and fall of his chest. You realised you did not know the colour of his eyes, they had always been closed in slumber. You had never seen them open and you yearned to see him look at you, to see him smile at you, to hear him call you his daughter. To tell you he loved you. But there had been no change in his condition. The immense power of the Odinforce thrumming through your veins belonged to him by rights, you knew this, and you knew that you would give everything you had, all your power, your magic, your throne, just to see him open his eyes.
“It has been nearly five days since the traitor was imprisoned,” Frigga murmured from the other side of the bed, her fingers stroking her husband’s snowy hair. “He should

“Am I?” he got to his feet and prowled slowly across the cage toward you, you pushed yourself to your feet, watching him warily. You nodded slightly, fighting the urge to flee as he approached the barrier, and a cold grin spread across his lips, “What reason have I to lie, my dear?”
“To gain my trust.” You said carefully, “Hoping to win me to your side, to have me as an ally.”
“And if I lie to gain your trust,” he said softly, “then you discover I lied, I have accomplished nothing, for I will lose you and my plans will be foiled. It is a risk I am unwilling to take. Rest assured, my girl, I am telling you the truth.”
You closed your eyes, not wanting to hear what sounded disturbingly like the truth. With a single sentence, you were born

You fairly swirled closer to the glass with the floating movements of a dancer, “I’m no fool, Loki. I know that information is never free. You’ve told me so much, answered so many of my questions. I’m not so innocent as to think you did it out of the kindness of your black little heart. So, what do you want?”
He looked at you for a second, blank, then he laughed. It was a cold, piercing burst of sound that expressed the amusement of a sadist inflicting pain. “Clever girl.”
“What’s your price?” you asked again, unfazed by the glorious smile which set your heart aflutter.
“My price.” He said softly, pacing the cage, pressing his hands together, almost in a gesture of prayer. “Yes…..”
He hissed the ‘s’ deliciously, then pivoted back to fa

You looked up from where you were seated in one of the golden chairs before the fire-pit in your chambers, your eyes shadowed and emotionless as Amora stepped lithely out of the shadows. Quite literally, in fact. The firelight danced across her skin as she strode gracefully across to you, her hips swaying sensually with every languid step, and her eyes intent upon your face. “Has he been punished?”
“Not yet,” you murmured, looking back into the fire, “I do not how to punish him. I do not wish to be cruel…but I have to do something or the people will lose their faith in me.”
“Where is he now?” the Enchantress asked, her fingers brushing your shoulder as she circled around the chair, “Where is he being kept?”
“He is locked away in the dungeon,” you said, attempting to ignore the way her touch tied your stomach in fiery knots. She pulled away, circling around to stand before you, looking inc

“Who are you?” you asked the blond man, trying your best to ignore the childish playboy. The muscular man seemed to radiate power; you could fairly feel the electricity crackling across your skin from his sharp gaze.
He strode toward you, his cloak sweeping along behind him, saying, “I am Thor Odinson, Prince of Asgard. And who are you, fair mortal?”
Somehow, you managed to stammer out your name, feeling very tiny and insignificant next to the Norse god of thunder. He took your hand and, in a single gesture that irrevocably convinced you that chivalry had come back from the dead or had never died out on Asgard, brought it to his lips in a warming kiss. Embarrassed, you felt your cheeks flush shamefully, and ducked your head, trying to

Finals. You hated them.
You rolled over to see what time it was, then growled. You couldn’t see the time. Because you had thrown the alarm clock against the wall. You contemplated going back to sleep. But the exams wouldn’t go away. And there was studying to be done.
You sat up in bed and stretched again, swinging your legs out of the sheets and rose to your feet, not unlike a zombie as you shuffled out the door, almost tripping on the pile of textbooks that were sitting oh so innocently right inside the doorway. Tea. You needed tea.
It was always so hard to wake up after a dream.
You didn’t remember much of the details, and even some of the more important details were quickly being forgotten now that you were awake. But you remembered a lot of gol
Marked (LokixReader pt. 25)Everything was sharp and clear. You were cold even under the warmth of your blankets. The light from the full moon hanging outside your window filtered across the gleaming gold of the floor of your bedchamber and fell upon a broad and powerful shoulder, covered in black leather and gold plate. You pushed yourself slowly up, your hair spilling over your shoulders, and falling over your eyes. Your breasts rose and fell with shaking breaths. Your eyes were wide and startled even as your fingers curled tensely in the sheet of your bed.Marked (LokixReader pt. 25)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
“No…” you whispered into the vast silence of you room, “no…you can’t be here…” A low chuckle rumbled out of the shadows and you shivered unconsciously, drawing your knees slightly up as though to shield yourself from his piercing emerald gaze as he stepped lithely into the swirling pool of moonlight. You shook your head slightly, your hair swaying around your suddenly bloodless face as you drew a trembling b
Dreams (LokixReader pt. 7)Three days. Three days pacing the floor of your small room. Three days when you didn’t know anything that was happening. The first two days nearly drove you mad. By the third day, you didn’t care. Fury made sure you had everything you wanted. Books, drawing paper, he even had a portable telly set up for you. You knew he was just trying to use these as distractions to keep you in the dark, but you were grateful. Keeping yourself distracted meant that you didn’t have to think about what Loki had said.Dreams (LokixReader pt. 7)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
You buried yourself in novels and your favourite television programs, sketching randomly. You ate when food was sent to your room, but aside from that, you really had no interaction with anyone. You had been told not to wander around, to stay in your room, and no one had visited you. Not even Natasha. Now that she was back with S.H.I.E.L.D., it was as though she had forgotten you. The books helped distract you from that, too.
But you couldn’t escape once you fell asl

You slipped out of your bed and pulled a sunsilk robe around you, wrapping the wide belt tightly around your waist and running a golden comb through your hair. You looked at yourself in the mirror, still seeing the effects of the afterglow shining in your eyes and radiating from your skin.
Lifting the skirt of the trailing robe, you padded with bare feet out of your bedchamber and into your solar, where the fire-pit was already kindled and dancing merrily.
Loki was standing at the arched balcony, looking out across the city, and smiling at you, holding a golden goblet in his hand.
“I thought you’d gone,” you said quietly. He

Or would he turn his back on you and condemn you?Awake (LokixReader pt. 32)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
It was amazing. Your father frightened you more than facing the wrath of Loki. You were frightened of him. So, when Thor gave a booming cry and boldly embraced his father, you couldn’t do anything but fall to your knees, your head bowed, offering the mighty spear of Gungnir up to Odin. “This….t-this belongs to you.”
There was a long, tense moment where no one spoke. You squeezed your eyes shut, your heart hammering in your throat. You trembled slightly. Then, without a sound, or word, or so much as a breath, the spear was lifted from your hands and you heard th
Underground (LokixReader pt. 11)“Where are we?” you asked, looking around. Aside from a spot of momentary dizziness from the teleportation, you were surprisingly fine. You disengaged yourself from Loki and took a couple steps away, looking around. From what you could tell, you were underground. You were standing in the middle of a large room, cavernous and with a high, arched ceiling. There was a curved hallway, lined with more arches, leading away to your right, but the room was empty, bare and desolate, as though it was a place that had been walled away and forgotten, going to pieces without anyone knowing or caring.Underground (LokixReader pt. 11)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
“Somewhere safe,” he said, watching you curiously. His green eyes seemed to glow in the shadows of the badly-lit room, and you eyed him carefully, a little uneasy. You realised that this was probably a very stupid decision. After all, you didn’t know Loki. Luke Koenig, your human neighbour, you knew him, but not the strange god who had hidden behind his face. He tilted his

“Here?” you turned back to face the Avengers, wiping all emotion from your face, “What do you mean?”
“How did you get to Asgard?” Natasha asked, holstering her guns at her hips.
“I…I was brought here,” you said evasively. Steve Rogers seemed to catch this and his blue eyes narrowed ever so slightly, but he said nothing.
“How?” Natasha pressed, “What happened? Have you been here all this time?”
“What have you been doing here?” Stark asked, looking around, “Did you find yourself a nice piece of Asgardian ass to keep yourself occupied?”
“Your vulgarity is disrespectful,” the guard at your elbow snapped, scowling at the billionaire.

“The princess of Asgard,” he said, watching you hungrily, “the blood of Odin allows you to command the Odin Force, the mightiest power in all of Asgard, and the love magic of the Lady Lofn gives you the abilities to enchant all others whom you meet. In the few days you spent with my brother and his foolish team of heroes, your magic captured their hearts and made them yours.”
“You want me to go to Asgard,” you said slowly, “that’s your plan. You want me to be crowned queen.”
“No,” he crooned, “I don’t want it. Asgard needs it.”
Your eyes slid warily to him, and he leaned forward slightly to lock eyes with you, “Odin is soon to fall into the Odin Sleep and Asgard will be left defenceless. The giants will attack, they always do, but this time Thor will not be there to command the city. He will remain on Midgard, searching for me. If
Woe (LokixReader pt. 18)“When Loki took you from my arms, I thought my world was ending,” Lofn said. The two of you were walking, your arms wrapped around the other’s waist, through the private gardens adjacent to your rooms. The warm breeze made her blonde curls dance through the air and her eyes were liquid joy as they drank in your face. She did not seem to want to look away for fear you would vanish, “I only held you, my precious daughter, for heartbeats before you were whisked away from me. I was distraught, I thought I’d never see you again, that you were gone forever.”Woe (LokixReader pt. 18)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
You smiled warmly and seated yourself on a delicate golden bench beneath a flowering pomegranate tree, and Lofn’s skirts swirled gracefully as she eased herself down next to you. She took your hand in hers and tucked some of your hair behind your ear in the gesture of quintessential motherhood.
“Did Loki…..” she began softly, “did he give you to good people?”

“How do we know you’re the daughter of Odin,” the blond man asked curiously.
“Fandral!” the woman exclaimed, “You know as well as I the All-Father has only two sons.”
“Sif, look at her,” Fandral said, “Does she not resemble the All-Father? And she clearly possesses magic, quite an impressive entrance, I might add.”
“Argue later,” the grim-faced man with almond eyes in violet and brown armour said in a low, gravelly voice, “We must ready the defences.”

Celebration (LokixReader pt. 20)An Asgardian coronation was not a solemn affair. Regal, yes, but certainly not solemn. You had figured out by now that everything was a celebration to the citizens of Asgard, even a funeral was a celebration of the life of the deceased. There was no hushed and respectful silence as you entered the massive throne room, packed wall to wall with the Asgardians. Rather, they screamed your name, roaring as you passed, strewing flowers beneath your feet and crying out for their queen.Celebration (LokixReader pt. 20)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
The Dvergr emissaries from Nidavellir beamed with pride as they saw the ceremonial gown they had smithed to fit you perfectly. The bodice was sleeveless and strapless, resembling a Midgardian over-bust corset hammered from the purest starsteel that glimmered under the streaming sunlight, and the full, trailing skirt of a shimmering dove-grey fabric not unlike silken taffeta swept impressively after you. A pair of silver brooches set with diamonds and pearls clasped the shoulders of the fluttering sapphire blue

“Sunsilk,” Loki smiled, holding the gown out for you to examine. He had told you it was an Asgardian court gown, quite in style, and perfect for the triumphal return of a princess. “The clothmakers of Asgard weave the sunlight into the richest fabric in the Nine Realms. I brought it with me when I came to Midgard to find you. Do you like it?”
You stroked the fabric, awed by the way it shimmered and fairly glowed with light, “I’ve never seen anything like it.”
“Nor shall you anywhere else,” he said casually, “sunsilk can only be woven on Asgard. Once you are queen, you shall wear no other fabric but the finest in the Nine Realms. Sunsilk, starsteel, seasatin, moonvelvet, only the finest for the queen of Asgard.”
You took the gown from him and he
