WARNING - THIS STORY CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM THOR: THE DARK WORLD.
Loki paced around the empty palace, his gaze cast along the very familiar halls that he had known since childhood. How different he viewed this place now. There had once been a time when he’d looked around in wonder and marvel as he imagined a day that this place might be his were he to become king. Now, he looked at them with the certain satisfaction that this place was his and he was king. It had certainly been the most extreme and roundabout way to acquire the throne, but it was his now, and no one even knew.
It hadn’t been his own fault that such a longing and desire had been placed in him. Odin had been the one to continuously feed him the lie that he was born to be a king. Had not those been his exact words on the day when the Allfather had taken the two young princes to the weapons vault as he told them the story of how he’d vanquished the Frost Giants? Loki clo

~DINNER WITH LOKI~
Leaving Stark Tower, you made your way back to your apartment, not in any sort of hurry as you repeatedly ran Hawkeye’s suggested plan through your mind. It seemed plausible, and it was better than yours, considering you had no plan whatsoever. The whole “sneak in and steal the scepter” part still worried you, but you felt that you were doubting when there was no need. Whatever skills you had learned in the past were still engraved in your mind and body. Combine that with all the magic and talents of a rogue that Loki that taught you – you could make a very promising thief.
You got back to your apartment not too long later, and as you opened the door and came inside, you found Loki in the kitchen, at the

“Jotunheim?” Thor repeated. “Why would they go there?”
Loki gave a slight shrug. “Undoubtedly they did not intend to. You said Sif attacked him before he could set down the last stone. Having to make such a hurried escape and being rather distracted, he set down the wrong stone.” He glanced from the “Jotunheim” stone in his hand to the “Midgard” stone Thor held. “They look similar enough.”
Again Thor glanced down to the stone in his hand as he wondered what exactly he should now do. The obvious answer was to go to Jotunheim, but it would take at least a few days before all the necessary preparations could be made – not counting the overall danger of even going to Jotunheim. With the Bifrost gone, dark energy was the only way to travel between realms, and there were only a select few who could use such magic – a select few that included Loki.

Loki and your timing for returning to Manhattan had been rather perfect, having just missed the Thanksgiving holiday, which would have just been absolute chaos to have gone through. Loki and you stayed around the apartment for most of the time, going out here and there and just wandering around the city on whatever whim you desired. There was a certain, unique pleasure of this time you spent with Loki. He was completely laid back, which was something you hadn’t seen much of until now, and he seemed…content. It wasn’t a bad thing – far from it. It was just so…different. This was the first time that you really felt that you and Loki were more than just companions on the same mission. For the first time, you real

Malcom wasn’t the sort of man to just say “yes” to contracts. He had a strict code in regards to his business, and rarely was there a job that actually met his standards and had justified reasons. More often than not, he found that his jobs were lacking the proper challenge of his skills, and there was a part of him that found it to be rather frustrating. It seemed that everyone wanted someone dead, but no one had a proper reason for it.
There was jealousy, hatred, a trifle wrongdoing…such petty reasons to take another’s life. Malcom always refused those kinds of jobs. If a man, or woman for that matter, was a true transgressor of divine creation, he would take the job. But it was rare for him to receive such requests, and there remained a lingering bit in him that could not understand why people had such intense, albeit petty, hatred towards one another. To him, it was better that those with hate were the ones that were elimin

It had been a bloody battle, to say the least. Countless soldiers from each side had been killed all over the palace. The chance of finding survivors among the carnage was unlikely at this point, but soldiers were still sent out to search. The people still wanted the hope that all had not been lost.
Hope. It was such a weak sentiment. What good was hope in a time like this? Hope would not get them anywhere with retaliation. Revenge, anger, that was all one needed. But Thor is ever hopeful…and pathetic.
Loki strolled down what was once a grand hall in the palace, taking little notice of the desolation around him. He had wanted, no needed, to get away from the screaming and crying of those who had survived. Their screams were aggravating to him. It probably would not have bothered him so much if he had caused their screams…
In the silence he looked around, trying to remember how the palace looked before the attack. Even he had trouble remembering what it onc
AOA - Loki's GuestAOA - Loki's Guest7 months ago in Humor More Like This
It wasn’t that Loki didn’t like guests...well maybe it was. It was sort of hard to tell, however, seeing as he NEVER had guests. It could be difficult enough when the All Mother would speak with him on her every whim, but to physically have Asgardians in this apartment? That wasn’t going to happen so long as he had any say in the matter.
But he didn’t have a say in the matter, not when Riyah showed up on his door step.
Riyah was the sister of Fandral the Dashing, who was one of Thor’s comrades. Loki had known both Riyah back in Asgard, but it had taken a long time for him to really notice her. Since things had changed for him recently, though, he had become close with her, or as close as he could be to anyone. She was a lot like him, and yet she was quite different. And while sometimes she had to vie for his attention, she certainly didn’t have to this time.
Maybe it was because she was standing

“So you intend to kill me, is that it, Loki?” Titus inquired as he gripped his sword and slowly began to move. “Are you so set on retribution?”
Loki watched Titus with his cold glare as the two began circling each other. “I’ve killed for less,” he replied simply, stopping as he faced the man before him as he tilted his head up slightly. “And taking the one thing I love from me – that is certainly worth killing for.”
Titus grinned. “You think you’re so much better than your brother. That you don’t act as rashly as he. But you are just as horrid. Even if you kill me your fate is sealed. Do you really believe that Asgard will be safe for you if you return? You will be executed. You have no salvation.” He taunted.
Loki held his gaze. Titus was right. Returning to Asgard would mean imprisonment and death. But for Caedra, he would return to see her safe.

Tony Stark gave a slight grin as he moved closer to you. “You know, you are the absolute last person I would have expected to come here tonight,” he said as he waved his hand around casually. “Really, I would have expected to see Director Fury coming sooner than I thought you would.”
“What can I say?” you asked with a laugh. “I’m just full of surprises, especially lately.”

Hands zip tied behind your back, you were led back into the elevator and taken somewhere within the tower (up or down, it hardly mattered at this point) to a small room that was a cross between an interrogation room and an airport holding cell. The guard that had led you there was kind enough to cut your hands free but was sure to give you one of those “we’re watching you so don’t try anything” looks as he slipped through the door and securely closed it behind him.
You looked around the small room. There was basically nothing here. A table, a couple of chairs, and the door was really all the furnishing here. There was a camera in the corner of the room and a small vent, but it was far

“Good morning, ________,” Loki whispered as he kissed the base of your neck gently.
You grinned as you turned and buried your face deeper into the soft pillow, hoping that Loki would hardly notice how much you had liked his gentle kiss. “Good morning,” you replied a moment later as you turned your head slightly and glanced at him. “What time is it?” you inquired with a yawn.
Loki glanced to the clock on the nightstand, though it was rather pointless since he knew well enough what time it was anyway. “Seven thirty,” he answered gently as he kissed the back of your neck again.
You groaned as dropped your head. “Why so early?” yo

You smiled and gave a slight nod as you looked up to the dashing blonde god beside you. “It feels…familiar,” you replied as you glanced out to the courtyard around you. People milled about at a leisurely pace, and occasionally one or two would glance your way with a curious gaze. “They seem intrigued,” you said as you looked from the people back to Thor.
Thor glanced about, giving a slow nod and a soft smile. “They are interested to see the girl that Loki brought,

Once __________ had left with the captain of the guard, Loki took the opportunity to slip away. He would eventually return towards the palace, but he was hardly concerned for his companion’s safety. If Odin wished for anything more than a conversation, he would have come with greater force to take them both. Of course, Loki was curious to know why the Allfather would want to speak with her, but he knew she was likely to tell him of it later. Besides, Loki needed the time to himself, and this was the perfect opportunity for it. He weaved unseen through the city to a place close to the border of the city and mountains in the distance. There was a small inn here, and be

Not that you’d planned it to be a late night, but it was well past midnight by the time you actually managed to get to bed. Dinner with Loki had been pleasant enough, and afterwards he’d even helped clean up a bit (which meant leaving everything in the sink and leaving you to clean about half of it before giving up for the night). This being your first night back in your apartment, it did feel a little weird after all the time you’d spent in Asgard. Since you didn’t have much of a past, Asgard felt like more of a home than this place did, and it was more than just having been there longer.
Something about Asgard felt right. It felt natural to you, as if you’d spent most of your life

Wanting to steal an Asgardian artifact from somewhere within the Tower hardly fell under the usual “evening out,” and that added a certain, unique thrill to all of this.

The time away from __________ was, as Loki had thought, exactly what he’d needed to ensure that his plan was not to be ruined because of his attraction to one girl. Loki knew that he could not allow any excess time away from her, but it was just enough. He had considered going somewhere out of her apartment before he used his magic to get across the ocean, but that would have only been a waste of time.
Leaving her in the kitchen, Loki went down the hall to the spare room that was “his” while they stayed in Midgard. From there, he used his magic to reach Venice, Italy, in a matter of seconds. There was a six hour time difference between the two cities, which put it roughly aro

You could tell that the guards were a little annoyed because this was clearly a slow walk for them, but you didn’t attempt to move faster even though you probably could have and still been able to keep up. The captain who’d spoken to Loki and yourself hardly said a word now, though you had heard him mention to the other guard shortly after you had left the observatory that you were to “be treated as was expected.” What that could have possibly meant, you had no idea. Perhaps Odin could give some light to all the mystery here, but from what you knew and understood of him, it was rather unlikely.

He never came to bed before you were sound asleep and he was always up well before you. That could hardly have been enough rest for Loki to stay energized and rejuvenated enough. So long as you were in Asgard, maybe. Loki never used much magic except when teaching you.

WARNING - This story mentions spoilers from Thor: The Dark World.
It had hardly taken Loki any time at all to become used to his role as king under the guise of “Odin.” His impersonation of the former monarch was near perfect, and never was there a sideways glance or was a question raised against the king. Not even Thor suspected a thing, though he was too preoccupied to really notice. Had Loki not given his brother what he wanted? Thor doubted he was truly ready for the throne, claiming he would never be ready. He wanted to protect the Nine Realms as a soldier, and he wanted to be with Jane. All Loki had done was give his consent – or rather, give Odin’s consent.
Loki hardly denied how lucky he had been that Thor had turned down the throne when “Odin” had offered it. For all he knew of his brother and his actions, not even he would have guessed that Thor would not that the throne at such a time. Loki would hardly m
