"Come on. As much as I've enjoyed the thought and process of having you I want my body back. That and my liver." Loki told his belly.
Tony chuckled at Loki as he watched the god talk to his belly. It was really quite the sight to behold. Toki looked at his father then back at his notebook and continued with his designs.
“Loki, one of these days people will think you’re insane.” Tony grinned and walked over to his husband with a bowl of fruit.
“Papa, look!” Toki held up his drawing with a big grin.
"Very lovely, thank you." Loki took the bowl with a smile.
Looking at Toki's design he smiled.
"Sir Director Fury is calling. It's not an emergency."
"For once Loki told him.
Stark we need you to come in tomorrow for a few hours to help the tech team upgrade the security systems."
"But tomorrow's Valentine's day." Loki stated.

Tony nodded at his friend’s question.
“Yeah, he got Loki’s eyes, his hair, my skin and my nose. It’s really the best combination.”
“Let’s just hope he didn’t get your ego.”
“Everyone keeps saying that! But hey, when one parent is a billionaire genius and the other a prince, you’re going to have an ego.”
“Tony you’re horrible.” Bruce chuckled and patted his friend’s shoulder. “But I’m happy for the both of you. I really never thought you’d settle down like this.”
“You know, for a while I didn’t think I ever would either.” Tony smiled at himself.
“Papa, Remus awake!” Toki tugged on his father’s shirt then followed Tony as the man went over to his son. He scooped the baby up and quickly took him out of the room, hoping not to wake Loki.
“Shh, shh, shh, Daddy’s here.”
Chapter 60Odin looked at the child in his wife's arms. "Now he looks as he should." Odin took the child in his arms and Loki thought he would collapse any second.Chapter 607 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"He's a fine son. He'll be every bit as powerful as you both are." Odin told them looking between Loki and Thor.
"Loki there is not enough time to tell you how sorry I am for how I have wronged you. I made that mistake more than once and I will not make it again." Odin told him.
Giving the child back to Frigga he embraced his younger son.
"I will accept Remus as a grandchild of mine as I should have done with your other children and I will do so from this day forth."
Thor and Tony both breathed a sigh of relief and exchanged nervous but happy smiles. It was a good vacation so far. Now they just needed Fury to smile again and the day would be complete. Frigga smiled at her son and husband, and her eyes glazed over with fresh tears.
“This is cause for celebration!”
“Point Break, I’m starting to think you just like

"Why did you take me away from Papa?" Fenrir asked.
"I know what I did was wrong and I am sorry for that Fenrir. I am the All-father, I had to do what was right even though it wasn't to keep the family image." Odin told him.
"I am sorry to you, and your sister as well as your older brother."
Toki watched as the man left, and could hear his voice in the hall, though he couldn’t make out what he said. After it went silent again, Toki cuddled up under the blankets and fell asleep.
Tony walked back over towards the dining hall completely sober now. He’d need to figure out what was in that antidote later. As he walked along, he was stopped by certain brunette and her three friends. For the life of him he couldn’t remember their names, but it didn’t matter much to him. They got on his nerves.
“Man of Iron, we wish to speak with you.”

Chapter 56This was easier than he expected; maybe he could finish before four? Tony looked over the machine and redid some wires as well as replacing other parts before backing up for a moment. There wasn’t very much that needed to be fixed. The machine actually ran pretty well on its own, but Tony’s guess was that Fury wanted the software fixed. Machines could be replaced, files and documents couldn’t. So the inventor turned it on, let it run then got into the mainframe and started working his magic.Chapter 567 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"No. Well not really."
"He's sort of in trouble for not getting his work finished because the baby was being born and he wanted to be here. But there was so much happening he never went back." Loki explained.
Steve entered the room along with Clint and both waved to Tony. "Hey Tony." Steve hugged the man.
"Bruce told me about Remus. How's it feel to be a dad?"
"Is the kid blue?" Clint asked.
“It feels amazing. I can hardly get any sleep but I get to hold my kid now. Loki was

“Tony? What is it?”
“Yeah Stark, what’s so important you had to interrupt all of us?” Clint, Nat, Steve and Pepper all chimed in and waited for an explanation.
“You guys, Loki just had the baby. I’m a father!”
There was a stunned silence followed by a mass of congratulations and questions.
“What color is the baby?”
“Boy or girl?”
“What did you name it?”
“Can I go over and see?”
“Tony, why didn’t you tell me sooner?”
“Hey, hey! Everyone settle down. I didn’t know until just before the big moment, so there was no way I was going to take the time to invite all of you. Besides, Loki and Remus need to rest.”
Both Natasha and Pepper cooed at the name.

Looking at Toki Loki could see a change in the boy. He wasn't the white pale of a maggot like before he had a pinkish coloring like a new born baby.
Placing his hand to his forehead Loki was sure the child felt fine.
"I can detect nothing out of the ordinary sirs." Jarvis informed them.
Toki looked at his parents oddly then shrugged and went back to hugging Loki.
“Oh I see. I don’t get a hug?” Tony groaned as Toki giggled and tackled him suddenly. The inventor tickled his son but couldn’t help feeling worried. What was going on?
“If I may sir, it seems Toki is simply going through some changes. The DNA splicing must have some slow-reacting effects.”
“True. Maybe he’ll outgrow the maggot genes on his own?”
“Toki is turning normal?” Fenrir chimed in and cocked his head to the side in curiosity. It would strange to see what Toki looked like without his maggot-spliced features.

“He feels kinda cold.”
“Loki gets like that sometimes, so Remus will until he can control it.”
“But that doesn’t hurt him, does it?” Pepper looked at Loki rather worried. She didn’t know really anything about Loki, much less if something like this was necessarily healthy. She still compared everything to what was normal by human standards.
“Sir, Agent Romanoff is here.”
“He’s not asleep, is he?” Natasha peeked into the room then smiled at the baby in Steve’s arms. She walked over quietly, and ran a single finger along Remus’s cheek.
“How are you two doing?” She turned her attention to Loki, trying to keep eye contact with him rather than just staring at Remus. She’d never seen such a cute baby.

Loki nodded getting up to go help Tony fix whatever mess he'd made.
Tony was cleaning up the glass then went into the kitchen to wash the blood off. It wasn’t too bad, but he had pieces of glass in his hand. He winced a bit, clenching his jaw.
“Don’t laugh Jarvis.”
“I would never laugh at you Sir. The hydrogen peroxide is in the top left cabinet Sir.”
Tony reached for it then noticed Loki. “Jarvis.” He sighed out upset.
“Sir, I simply asked him to help you.”
"It's easier to remove glass when someone else can do it for you." he said.
“I’m fine.” Tony said, not looking at the god. He yanked out a piece of glass and groaned. He was quiet for a moment then sighed in defeat and let Loki look at his hand.
Loki found tweezers under Jarvis’ instructions and pulled the glass out of Stark's hand.

"Yes Thor that would be the baby."
"Here's the head, hands and the baby's feet. Want a picture for your scrap book?"
"Yes please doctor."
"Might I have one as well? I would like to show Mother and father their grandchild." Thor smiled.
“Oh my God I’m really going to be a father.” Tony almost couldn’t hold himself back. He kissed the back of Loki’s hand and used the rest of his energy not to cry. He smiled and looked down at his husband.
“That’s our kid.”
“Tony if you want to cry you can.”
“I’m not going to cry Bruce!” The inventor pouted at his friend then looked back at the image. His child.
Bruce printed two pictures one for Thor and then one for Loki and Tony to have.
"Baby brother?" Fenrir questioned.
"We don't know yet we won't know until the baby is born so be patient." Loki smiled.

“Hey, are you okay?” He looked at his husband worried and held Loki’s hand in his own.
“Man of Iron, tell us again how it is you came to fall in love with Loki.” Sif spoke up, her sharp, dominating eyes fixed on the couple. Yet she smiled sweetly, as if hiding something in her words. Fandral took a sip of his drink and spoke up as well.
“Yes, tell us the story!”
Tony looked at the warriors before looking back at Loki for a moment.
“It’s a pretty weird story.”
“Well, you are now wed to a god Man of Iron and the god of Mischief no less. Come, tell us your story.”
Loki glared at them. Hogan kept his mouth shut and Valstagg was too busy feeding his fast already. Loki was more than tempted to show them exactly what he learned in Midgard.
"Loki, contain yourself." Frigga put her grandson in his father's arms.

"It will be a long time still before I am welcomed home."
"I dunno about that. I mean, your dad agreed to give you back your powers, didn't he?" Tony looked at the god then grabbed some more tissues.
"With limited access. I cannot return until I have earned the right to have my powers back entirely."
"It'll be easy. You'll be back in no time." Tony paused a moment and blew his nose. He picked up his tea and took a sip. "I promised I'd make this right and I won't stop 'till you're happy."
Loki finally flipped himself back onto his feet.
Tony sniffled a bit. "You really like riding horses?" He asked curiously.
"Yes." he nodded.
"I could get you a horse to ride you know." Tony sneezed a bit then sniffled and kept talking. "We could smuggle you out of the tower and take you to some farm or something."

Tony and Pepper had a splash fight for a while before the redhead tried to swim away. She was giggling and squealed when Tony caught her.
“Tony, stop!” She laughed as he began to tickle her. “Stop it, stop!”
Tony laughed as he tickled her more yelped when the woman returned the favor. He fell apart and his foot slipped, dragging him under the water. He surface, sputtering and gasping.
“Water went in my nose!” He coughed and flailed.
Loki finally resurfaced showing only enough for his nose to get through so he could breath.
Pepper laughed at Tony and shook her head then pulled in one of the floating chairs. She got on it and sighed relaxed.
Tony shook his head then looked over at Loki. His eyes had a playful glint as he suddenly swam towards the god.
Loki hadn't seen what Stark was planning for him.

Thor frowned and did as he was told. "Forgive me brother." Thor said just in case this did end up killing the Man of Iron.
"Sir I would also like to tell you that your husband is normal again and may very well kill you." Jarvis informed him.
Bad timing sure but the rant Loki was on had even the agents covering their privates.
Toki wasn’t sure what to think of his father’s state. He glanced at Fenrir then quietly snuck into his room and hid under his bed. He wasn’t sure what was going to happen to Tony, but he knew it wouldn’t be good.
Tony closed his eyes then sighed. He didn’t even feel a tingle as the electricity coursed through his suit and into the shield ring. It hummed as it came back to life and sealed off again, leaving only two maggots out in the open. Tony sighed and gave Thor a thumb’s up, though he was surprised he

Loki finally came around and got up. "I guess I should feed him?" He asked.

i would never number the poems
i wrote about myself because that
would be like ticking off the days
until my breakdown;
i was a moth, unapologetically throwing myself
at any gleam of hope; wasting my wings
on industrial promises
colors always felt much more
appropriate for the purple boiling
beneath my heart and the pallid
purposelessness of my head,
but i was born into a colorless world--
no one sees me behind the metallic scars
of my skin and iron grating of my voice against
the grain; no one sees me as more than
gray regret or monochrome mistakes,
no one sees me but
all i ever wanted was for a
fallen god with feathered heels
to believe in me: to pray upon
the monuments i built for
broken dreams and to baptize me
in his tainted tears,
i just want him to be real. more

to be more than an imaginary friend
to various mental limitations; i want
to trade my liquid skin [evaporating]

I'll find a new place to lay
For what else is a broken man to do

Yet again I will play as the fool
Tear up my heart just to play
Then toss me like a useless tool
Send me away
What more can you want from me
Your leaving my heart to decay
So just let go and leave me be

Away so I can go back to being alone
Go back to being cast astray
And go back to a world without a home.
