Chapter 52A few more weeks went by and they were looking at the time frame of the birth of their child.
"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.
“I don’t c
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 561 year 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
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 601 year 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
Chapter 63"Good night Toki." Odin left the boy to bed once he'd climbed in and started walking Fenrir to his room.Chapter 631 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"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.”
“I have to ge

“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.
"Agent Barton I think it's time for your flying lessons." Loki smirked. He'd felt h
Chapter 57Tony chuckled at Steve’s bashfulness. You would never suspect someone who had been through so much to be so polite and quiet, but Steve was living proof of just that.Chapter 571 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“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.
"No he feels no
Chapter 55"Oh sod off." Loki glared playfully.Chapter 551 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
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.
"She did g

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 47Loki smiled as he looked at the screen.Chapter 471 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"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.
Getting back to the baby shower Loki sat down and started eating a

“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.
Loki felt most of
Chapter 51“JARVIS, what repairs need to be made to the suit?”Chapter 511 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“Minor fixes sir. The biggest issue would be with the energy stores. It seemed you did not let the suit recharge well last time.”
“All right, keep it charged for me and show me what needs to be fixed. Also list any possible upgrades that can be made to the suit.”
“Of course sir. Also, Mr. Loki Stark is coming to the bathroom. He wishes to take a bath.”
Tony jumped a little as the bathtub started to fill itself up and sighed.
“Oh, JARVIS do I have any bath salts?”
“Yes sir, I believe they’re on the top shelf in your pantry.” Tony went over and pulled out a canister of bath salts he knew Loki would like. He’d seen Loki pour them in almost every time he took a bath. The inventor poured some in and adjusted the temperature of the water.
Loki waddled into the bedroom one hand on his belly and the other at his back.
"Afternoon Anthony." Loki smiled softly.
Chapter 48“Ah!” Tony tried to kick himself free only to have the thing grip his other leg. It gave a hard tug and Tony shut his eyes as he was pulled into the mushy thing. It felt like nothing he’d ever experienced in his life, and with any luck he would never feel it again. Tony started to panic as he realized he wouldn’t be able to breathe or pull himself free.Chapter 481 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Loki tried to assess the situation to plan his attack before rushing into the lab and attacking the white blob. He had Jarvis call Bruce to get him over to the tower and help them.
Loki bit at the blob hoping it to have some effect.
The blob quivered and shot out an appendage at Loki, though its hold on Tony seemed to loosen. The thing didn’t seem to have very much strength left in it, but it was persistent. Tony managed to squeeze himself just enough room around his face to breathe and he was more than thankful for it.
“Sir Dr. Banner is here.” No sooner had JARVIS said that when Bruce burst in

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 wrapped a rather large paw around Toki in a hug.
"Eat?" Fenrir questioned.
Loki sighed. His boys would always be hungry. Letting go of Toki he made a start to the kitchen to find his children something to eat.
Tony watched Loki for a moment before going over.
“Babe that’s really cute but you’re kind of a wolf right now. I can get it.” Tony smiled at his husband and rummaged through the fridge before getting something for Fenrir. He looked in a separate fridge and pulled something out for Toki.
“Okay boys, just remember that I’m not as good at cooking as Daddy Loki, so be patient.” Tony rolled up his sleeves and got to work.
Loki plopped down on his rear end.
"No cook." Fenrir told him taking a steak for himself out of the fridge.
Putting it on the table, he started putting together stuff he knew his Papa usually ate
Chapter 64Tony rolled his eyes, refusing to believe it. He could feed himself just fine, though honestly, not as well as Loki. If Tony had the chance to name Loki god of anything, he’d name him the god of good cooking and food.Chapter 641 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“Very well, but please, be sure to come back more often.” Frigga smiled at her son and wiggled her thin fingers at Remus. “And you too, my beautiful boy.”
"I think we could come back for the winter festivals. The boys would enjoy it." Loki suggested as he sat down to start eating.
Fenrir sat up straighter.
"Please Papa. Can we please?" He begged.
"Please." Toki gave him that puppy eyed look and knew he was going to lose.
"That's far too long away." Frigga frowned.
"Tis true Brother." Thor stated.
“Look, we’d really love to stay longer. Trust me, the last thing I want to do right now is go back to work.” Tony sighed out as he said that last part and he looked at his new family. “But we really can’t
Chapter 12"Yes, this again. I can't believe you're really taking this seriously. It was cute when you befriended Loki, and we all had a good laugh when you two started dating but this is enough.

"How is he using me Natasha? For my money? The man is a god. If he wants something all he has to do is call it up with magic! What could he possibly be using me for?"
"You don't think it's strange at all that he hid behind you when he was brought back here without powers? Or that when we were about to punish him for what he'd done that he just happened to develop feelings for you? Because hey, you can't let them hurt your friends, right?"
"Don't start Nat. We've been through this too many times already. You don't even know what he's really like."
"And you do? Do you really know what he's like Tony?" She gave the brunette a questioning look.
Loki listened from the hall. He was out of sight as he listened to t

A grin stretched across Tony's face and he kissed Loki back. "I guess I should be pretty proud of myself." Tony put his hands on Loki's waist and pressed their foreheads together. "So, what do I make for dinner exactly?"
"I took care of dinner earlier while you were fretting over what to wear. Very easy mind you." Loki stated reaching into the over and pulling out a still warm dish of what looked like roast beef, onion, carrots and potatoes. Setting that on the counter he went back for another one pulling out the same dish only more meat less vegetable.
It looked normal enough, but Tony wasn't about to test his luck by tasting it. He sat down amongst the others and listened as they spoke amongst themselves. He didn't understand anything they said, but it didn't matter. He'd ask
Chapter 2Tony sighed heavily and flopped on his back. "I'll talk to him. I doubt he'll listen, but I'll talk." He looked at Loki for a moment then spoke up again. "So how do I fix the room for Fenrir?"Chapter 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Not surprised by his lover's sarcastic tone, Loki carted his long pale fingers through the dark hair with a small smile. "Thor will listen but you know very well he's an oaf and you'll have to get straight to the point. As for Fenrir's room leave that to me."
Tony sighed heavily, but knew there was no point in arguing. Just that little smile Loki gave him was enough to make him want to do anything, even stupid things to make the demi-god happy. "All right, I'll talk to him. But if he hits me, I swear to God I will ride you until you can't sit down."
Loki's smile didn't falter in the least. "You fail to realize that if it comes to me my brother will do all in his power to make sure I am happy. If I am happy with you-which I am-he will see light." Loki smiled.
He was not going to enjoy this.
Chapter 3Then Tony shrugged and rested his head on Loki's shoulder again. "I could live with it. I still love you, don't I?" He looked into Loki's eyes as he spoke. "Besides, I like the color blue."Chapter 32 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Loki gave his lover a small smile before pecking him on the lips. Being a parent again was becoming more and more appealing the more they talked about it.
"Besides, imagine how much cooler our kid would be. He'd be part god and genius; what could be better than that?" Tony grinned from ear to ear and went back to cooking, a little tune escaping him again as he began to whistle.
Loki smiled. Tony was willing to accept any which way their children would be born, which made him very happy indeed.
Two days later, Loki and Tony were preparing for the arrival of Loki’s children.
Tony finished frying some vegetables and served up their dinner, a crooked grin on his face.
"Bon appetite." He kissed the back of Loki's hand.
"Keep that up and we'll be eating something else for dinner." Loki

"I'm fine. The children and Ms. Potts are safe, I sent them Asgard." Loki shoved Tony away from him as a blue blast came from one of the Chitauri's guns.
"Where are the others?" Loki asked, waving his hand he froze the craft that the monster road on.
As if to answer his question the Hulk showed up on the same roof top staring down intently at Tony.
“They’re here.” Tony felt slightly relieved now that the others had arrived. The Hulk easily took out five Chitauri and went after more. Natasha and Clint stood back-to-back and shot at any Chitauri that got too close. Steve swung his shield about hard, slicing through some Chitauri before it returned to the Avenger.
“So what’s the plan Capsickle?” Tony looked at Steve then around at the growing number of Chitauri that surrounded them.

Remus giggled in his usual fashion his eyes bright. It was a far change from the day before when he felt something was wrong.
Fenrir saw Toki peeking into their parent’s room and grabbed his brother stopping him. "Leave Papa alone. He needs to sleep and rest so he can be better." Fenrir told him as he took Toki’s hand and started to move him in the direction of Tony and Remus.
"Sir Doctor Banner and Agent Barton are on their way up." Jarvis said.
“All right, let em in.” Tony finished feeding his son and cleaned up the mess before his colleagues got upstairs. The last thing he wanted was for them to see him covered in vegetable mush.
Toki looked at Fenrir and pouted.
“Will Papa be okay?” Tears glistened in his eyes as he looked at Fenrir and his chin quivered. He didn’t like it when either of his pa

The playboy scoffed and swiped another slice of carrot, though he wasn't sure why. But chewing it obnoxiously loud kept his mind busy.
"You know, I think I know what I wanna name our first kid. Let's call him Philip. I like the way it sounds, so fancy. Philip Stark…whatever your last name is." Tony wasn't about to risk saying the wrong surname, and to top it all off, pronouncing it wrong. He'd spent many a night on the couch for mispronouncing Laufeyson.
Loki mulled the name over in his head.
"Philip. I like it. Has a nice ring to it." Loki smiled. Philip Stark or Philip Laufeyson? Well technically it would have to be Lokison or Tonyson. Anthonyson maybe. No, Starkson could work better. Loki ran the names through his head and threw his hands in the air giving up.
"What's the matter Babe? Thinking too hard?" T

"Yes, that fight. Don't tell me you two had another fight?"
"A spat, I don't like the word fight. And it was nothing. Loki was just sore that I rode him so hard last night."

"We're fine. So you can relax. And don't worry; Loki isn't mad about you smashing him into the ground over and over. At least not very angry. He still frowns when I bring it up."
Loki had woken up at some point but didn't feel like actually getting up for anything, not that he needed too. After five minutes he asked for another movie only to fall asleep during the last half hour of it.

Tony's sleep wasn't very restful that night, he kept dreaming about green eyes, blood pooling at his side and dark, cold concrete on his back. He woke with a start, sweat coating his body and a fine trembling engulfing him from head to toe.
He searched his room with bleary eyes, looking for something that obviously wasn't there.
He got up on shaky legs and made his way to the bathroom, stepping under a freezing shower to chase away the remnants of his dreams. He let the water cascade all over him, calming his heartbeat and sharpening his mind once again. He turned off the shower and stepped in front of the mirror in his room, exanimating himself thoroughly in search of wounds, bruises, that something that his subconscious is trying to remind him about just between wake and sleep.
He swept his hands on his chest, near the arc reactor, on his abs, his legs, but in the end he found nothing.
Scowling in annoyance he dressed quickly with his beloved black clothes and made his way
