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

~I'M ALMOST SORRY~
Calm but incredibly tired, you walked between Thor and Loki as you followed Eitri through the streets. Eitri was going on and on about how this fight, as rather small of an outbreak as it was, would be remembered in the history of Nidavellir as one of the greatest, if for no other reason than the mighty Thor had come to help. You vaguely listened as he talked of having a celebration in a day or two, and even requested that the three of you stay. Loki didn’t like the idea, and as much as you might have wanted to, you knew that staying any longer than necessary wouldn’t be a good idea. Thor was the one who declined Eitri’s offer, however, quickly explaining that needs in Asgard required that the three of

Walking down yet another seemingly abandoned street, you surrendered to your momentary boredom and pulled your ipod from your pocket, carefully untangling the mess of wires that was, on occasion, a pair of barely working, green and black earbuds. You had to be careful as you pulled the wires through their entangled loops, because one forceful tug too many and they would be broken for good. It really didn’t matter how expensive a pair you could buy, you were cursed with earbuds that didn’t work proper. Maybe you just got stuck with all the defective ones, or maybe you were actually rather brutal to the poor things and you just didn’t realize it. Either way, broken earphones were all you ever seemed to have.
But enough about that…you had successfully untangled your earbuds and were happy to find that they still worked. You had to turn the volume on your ipod up roughly 75% of the way to hear at a comfortable level, but hey, it worked!

“I will help you, __________,” He promised, and he’d meant it.
As Loki looked into your (e/c) eyes, he actually felt that this was a good thing. He wanted to help you, and this was the only way. But that didn’t mean he wasn’t aware of the risk involved. Yes, there was the “we might die” factor, but that wasn’t the most pressing concern to him. If, during the process of sharing his thoughts and memories, you came across his plans with Algrim, well…he didn’t care to think what would come after that. Would you hate him? Would you run from him? Would you turn against him? Or did he have a chance to persuade you, to show you that h

In the time since Loki had gone, you had just barely been able to actually fall asleep. You were tired (well, you were almost always tired), but it had been one of those times where you mostly fall asleep but you’re still vaguely aware of things going on around you. Every now and then you could barely hear a voice or two from somewhere outside, but there was nothing coherent. You were so close to actually falling asleep when…
The sound of a horn blasting reached your ears.
Your eyes snapped open. You knew that exact sound. That horn’s call was one that rang familiar in the recesses of your mind, and you knew exactly what it meant. There was an attack. Here. Now. You sat up quickly, looking

~THERE IS ALWAYS RISK~
The next morning seemed slow in coming, but for once, you found it to be a good thing. A long night of rest was exactly what you had needed after returning to Asgard, and being with Loki was just the cherry on top. It was a beautiful and calm day in Asgard, and even though there was a part of you eager to get going, most of you was content to let the day start of slow and just wait to see how things played out. Loki didn’t seem jumping to get going either, which was sort of understandable. With the visible level of discomfort he’d had in Nidavellir, aside from the Marauders and that troublesome time, you couldn’t blame Loki for not being ready to leave Asgard just yet. For all the issues he had (or at least claimed to

Lucius pulled up the hood of his cloak as he ducked down the dark alley way. He was near the edge of the city, as far away from the palace as possible. He could not risk anyone there overhearing the conversation he was soon to have. “Dronicus!” he hissed into the darkness.
A man, also cloaked, came out of the shadows and lowered his hood. He was a young man, and not a particularly handsome one at that. “I’m here, quit your worrying.” Dronicus said. “Why’d you have to meet all the way out here then? And so late?”
Lucius lowered his own hood. He was a middle aged man with thinning light brown hair and a permanent scowl on his face. “You know very well why.” He hissed. “This is a delicate matter, and there are many open ears around the palace.”
“Well what about Heimdall?” Dronicus asked. “He hears and sees all.”

“You’ve been quite reclusive tonight, __________,” Adam said as he came over to where you were at the bar of the local place where you and Adam often had encounters with each other.
You glanced over your shoulder at the dark, depressed romantic of a musician who was watching you closely with his timeless eyes. “And? You’re reclusive all the time,” you responded dryly as you took a slow sip of the drink that had been in your hand for the last fifteen minutes.
“Yeah,” Adam replied slowly as he looked you over quickly. “But you usually aren’t. Something on your mind then?”
You nodded slowly, but didn’t see the point in talking, even to Adam. He was one of your closest friends (and certainly no offense to him) but that wasn’t saying much. You talked, and you knew he was a soul that you could trust in, but this…this was something you had never felt before. This was the lowest low you had eve

Every healer was busily tending to what survivors there were, and with every moment more and more arrived. Loki carried the young girl to him, holding her close. He could feel the stares of everyone as he passed by, wondering what on earth he was doing with this child. He didn’t care what they thought. Let them wonder. Let their minds create whatever horrid stories they would. His only concern was for the child in his arms.
By now the child had stopped crying, and lay still in his arms as she looked around curiously. When the healers were in sight, she had gripped tighter to Loki’s neck, as if she feared being separated from him. He relished the child’s innocent touch. She trusted him completely – it was not something he was used to.
Loki was almost to the healers when someone blocked his path. Loki glared at Thor, who eyed him suspiciously.
“What is this, brother?” Thor inquired, staring at the little child that looked up at him with

Mangog. The name rang oddly familiar in your mind. Too familiar, and it made you feel unsettled. You had become accustomed to not having the memories of your past, and though you were not content to live without answers, it hadn’t been such present thought in your mind since Odin had told you about Nidavellir. But now…now you sorely wished you had your memory. Knowing that you knew the name Mangog was all you could recall, but there had to be more than that, didn’t there?
“Are you well, _________?” Eitri inquired, noting how you had become suddenly withdrawn and distant. Your facial features were tight with concern and frustration, and only Loki could understand why.

You woke up slowly, the familiar pain of being hit over the head coming to you as you opened your eyes. You had to blink a few times before you could see, and even then your vision was a little blurry. You tried to sit up but the pain in your head was too intense. What had happened? You couldn’t remember much. You had been standing next to Spock when suddenly you had felt yourself being pulled away. You could hear shouts and some sort of physical altercation taking place, and then you’d felt a sharp blow to the back of your head. That was all you could remember.
Feeling like you could finally move without too much pain, you managed to pull yourself up and be propped up on your elbows as you looked at your surroundings. You were lying on the floor in a room that looked very similar to the bridge of the Enterprise. This room, however, was much darker and it appeared that you were alone.
Your head still hurt, but at least the pa

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.

Despite the courage that the Marauders had with the Uru weapons in their possession, the sight of the god of Thunder robbed them of some of it. And it was easy to understand why. Thor was unmistakable in his Asgardian armor and red cape, Mjolnir in his hand. The look on his face was stern. He didn’t take kindly to the Marauders. He never had. Once again they had started a rebellion, and once again he would put them down.
The Marauders closest stood in sudden fear, as everyone – Dwarves, you, Loki, and Marauders alike – all looked to Thor. He scanned the area, watching the fighting that was still going on. Not everyone had noticed his sudden appearance. He said and did nothing, only waiting

While making it back to Asgard had been a success, it wasn’t until Loki had landed the boat along the shore close to the city gates that you could actually enjoy the happiness of your return. The craft had been in such a poor state to begin with, and crossing realms certainly hadn’t helped anything. The engine sputtered horrible, cutting out at least twice, and leaving Loki to rely on his magic to keep the thing working long enough to make it away from the water.
Thor was the first out of the boat, turning back and helping you out as well. “Thank you,” you said to Thor as you took his hand and let him help you out, which ultimately became him carrying you a few feet away to the dry ground

“And Loki cares for this child?” Odin asked, leaning back into his seat.
Thor nodded. “He will not admit it and he tries very hard to hide it, but I can see that he is different around her. He is gentle and caring – not to mention that he has spent nearly every waking moment by her side.”
“And this child – Caedra, you said her name was – she cares for Loki?"
Thor nodded again. “But that is understandable given the circumstances. She is a young, frightened child and he was the first to find her.” He paused. “What should I do, father?”
Odin sighed deeply. No longer was he king and still he practically giving orders. “It is not my place to tell you what you must do, Thor.” He answered. “I can only give my opinion.”
“Then I would be grateful to hear it.” Thor replied.

While Loki was off searching in the Hall of Knowledge, you returned to Loki’s chambers to change out of your “traveling” clothes and into the black dress that you had. Made of a soft, velvety material, it was certainly one of the most comfortable dresses that you had. You took your time and enjoying being in a place that made you feel so safe. There were no Marauders here, aside from those locked away in the dungeon, and the sheer amount of protection around the palace took away any fear that you had of being in imminent danger. Even though you’d been gone from here for only a little over a day, it felt as though it had been much longer.

You followed the guards back to the palace, walking at a steady pace that suited you. 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.

“_________,” Loki said again as your eyes slowly fluttered open and you moaned tiredly. “Are you well?”

It was a cool, dark night in Detroit. The ghostly city was exceptionally quiet tonight as the sole figure walked along the sidewalk with no apparent destination in mind. He was tall and slender, his dark, almost animal like hair covering much of his thin face, though his sharp, strong nose did protrude from the dark, disheveled mess. His thin lips were pressed together in somewhat of an angry, forlorn expression. There may have very well been good reason why he walked alone tonight.
Out of all the many places he had lived, Adam always favored the city of Detroit. It was a city that had once been a grand highlight of some of humanity’s greatest achievements, though in recent years it felt more like a living cemetery. It was a city of people who held to the nostalgia of “the good old days” as they played their rock music in bars even older than they.
The music was what Adam truly loved. As dark and pes

That first night staying with Adam, you had slept on the couch. Your dear savoir had not forced you to. He had, in fact, offered you his room and said that he could sleep well enough on the couch. You had agreed, but for what time you remained awake you were relaxed and it wasn’t too long before you just feel asleep on the couch. Adam hadn’t wished to disturb you, but he had been kind enough to drape a warm blanket over you once you were sound asleep.
For the next (primarily the next morning), you stayed very well hidden in Adam’s place. You were afraid to even look out one of the windows. Though last night your father’s…rage…had been subdued, he was not the sort of man to usually let things go. But after Adam had so deftly saved you, there was a good chance your father would not come looking. Still, you hardly wanted to risk going out and having your father see you, or worse, try to take you again.

Though the mental bond between you and Loki had been severed, the pain still lingered in you. Your body trembled and for a moment you lost almost all of your strength. You pitched forward, certain you’d fall to the ground but was unable to stop yourself. Just as you were about to fall, however, Loki’s arms snaked around you and you fell against him instead, immediately clutching to him as you began to cry. The two of you ended up sliding towards the ground, with you nearly in a heap against him. Just the amount of agony in the emotion of all the memories you had seen and felt…it caused so much pain within you. Loki’s suffering, the suffering that no one knew about, was agonizing.

After the moment of initial shock was gone, Loki’s calculative mind began running through every possible scenario. Who would have taken Caedra? Who could have taken Caedra? Not just anyone could have access to the gardens. And wouldn’t someone have seen her? Then Loki remembered. Sif. He had left Caedra with Sif. So where was she? He looked around again, though he knew he would find nothing else. There was no trace of the warrior maiden anywhere.
The thought went through his mind that this was somehow Sif’s doing. He hoped it wasn’t true – not because he cared for her, but because it would mean that she had played him. For the sake of his pride it couldn’t be true. But even then it didn’t make sense for Sif to have done this. She would never do anything to harm Caedra. Besides, if she had wanted to take Caedra away from him, all she would have needed to do was go to Thor. No, Loki confirmed in his mind, this was not

The hours of the night passed quickly and the first rays of the morning light began to show through the window. The warm light on his face made Loki open his eyes slowly. He had found peace in his sleep, which was not something he could usually find when awake. Sif’s words from the prior night still haunted him. He wondered how much this man Gallan knew of his niece. Not much, it would seem since he had not come for her, and Sif insisted she was the only one that knew Caedra was even related to this man. But Loki could never be careful enough. His bargain with Sif could be easily broken by either person. Even so, Loki couldn’t say he was completely ungrateful that she was giving him something of a chance to keep Caedra.
He glanced down and smiled. Caedra lay curled up against his chest, her hair a tangled mess in her face. She breathed steadily and (more importantly) peacefully. Over the past week she’d had a few more night

You woke in the early hours of the morning (though how exactly you could have known it was “morning” in Nidavellir was something you couldn’t fathom) well rested and feeling rather peaceful. Still in a half asleep daze, you were awake enough to feel Loki’s arms around you, his body pressed close to yours in a sort of protecting way. You could hear his slow and steady breathing; his breath on your neck. As a soft smile came to your lips, it occurred to you that in all the nights Loki and you had shared a bed like this, there were only a handful of times that the two of you had ever gotten close – and most of those time you had been the one getting closer to him. It was nice to feel his arms a
