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.
"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 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.
Tony swam under water, coming up under the god and pushin

"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? 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.

Loki grabbed the first bag he found and started to pack his things.
Tony tossed a few things into his suitcase then set it out near the door.
“Jarvis, tell Fury his boys need their own ride.”
“He is getting them ready now Sir. They will meet you there and give you a short security brief.”
“All right.” Tony made sure he had everything. “Does my lab there still work?”
“I have been maintaining it regularly Sir. It is functioning perfectly.”
Loki smiled as he went to find Tony with his bag over his shoulder. His bag however was, mainly full of books.
Tony looked at the god and chuckled a bit. He looked so excited to get out of the tower. “Ready?” He grabbed his own things and headed ou
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. Can't you see he's using you?" She kept her voice low, but didn't bother hiding her anger.Chapter 122 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"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

“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
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 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 71Once he was washed up, Toki snuck into his parent’s room and looked at Loki. The god looked exhausted and right on the edge of falling asleep.Chapter 711 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
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

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

"JARVIS I need some more coffee." Tony stared at his work wide eyed before going around to the other side of the table to check some stats. He felt better now. Who knew all he needed was to stay up all night working?
"Of course. De-cafe?"
"Oh no, leave that bad boy in there." Tony switched a few numbers around on the computer, watching as everything changed before going back to the new creation on the table.
Having no luck in finding Tony, Loki ventured down to the labs, staying hidden as he saw Tony wide awake and working. He saw the slight shake in his hands; too much of his beloved coffee.
"JARVIS start up the reactors." Tony buzzed from one table to the next before stopping and pressing some buttons on his computers.

"Part of what your father did was out of anger and hurt. I was part of the reason because I took Fenrir and his older brother and sister away from him and that only made him angrier. He only did what he did because he was tired of being undermined and feeling like he didn't belong. He just wanted to be like everyone else." Odin explained.
Odin felt bad for not having realized sooner that Loki was just as good as Thor but in his own way.
Toki looked at Odin then at Fenrir, but didn’t know what he was talking about. Fenrir had been taken away? And what exactly had Loki done? He didn’t like not knowing things, especially when they sounded this important, but he left it at that. Toki nodded his head and went back to running around the garden with his arms outstretched.
“Just don’t forget to tell him the story and Remus too. Nobody likes to hear it, but it’s somethin

“These things are all over the place Rogers! Of course there’s more!” Tony flew up ahead and blasted at another worm. “You guys have those guns Bruce made?”
“Yeah, Nat and I can stay behind!” Clint responded and stayed back with the assassin. After what felt like an hour the Avengers finally reached the complex.
“Go, go, go!” Steve ran in first and nearly jumped when a child ran at him. Her skin looked horribly swollen and about to peel off, her eyes streaming a strange white liquid.
“Shit, this one needs treatment, now!” Tony saw the girl and ran in. There were cages along the walls, each with a child inside.
Loki sat down, watching Toki sleep for a few minutes before going to check on Fenrir. Loki sat down in the living room turning the sword over in his hands. "Jarvis what's the update?"
“They’ve found the complex Mr. Stark, as well as 15 childre

“And what are you going to tell Fury?”
"That would be the captain's job, not mine." Loki told him.
When Fenrir told them the gender of the child Loki didn't expect the child to hide. "Fenrir be nice."
When the Captain saw the child, Loki suddenly understood why Anthony got in trouble for things like this.
"Fury is not getting his hands on this child. If he even thinks about it I'll speak to him myself. I suggest you give him a warning as to what I will do if he thinks he can muscle his way through." Loki told him. Seeing the child feared Fenrir a bit Loki thought for a moment. "Fenrir go get my sword and put it back in its hiding place." Watching the boy go Loki turned back to the child trying to coax him closer.
“I know, I know. But you heard Loki and you know what they’ll do to
Chapter 73Tony chuckled and nodded his head with a sigh. It was true. From the day they’d met after Loki was cast to Earth to now, there was a tremendous difference. The god was no longer shut in and sullen all the time. True, he let everyone know he was royalty and that, as such, he was to be treated like royalty, but it was different from before. He wasn’t the condescending lunatic that had tried to kill them all, but was now a loving father and husband, even if still quite vain.Chapter 731 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“I guess I’m just tense is all. I want everyone to get along, especially with Loki and Fenrir. They’ve been through way more shit than I’ll never know about.” Tony ran his fingers through his hair and glanced towards Fenrir’s bedroom. Though the boy was certainly much friendlier with Tony now, there was still a wall up around him. He never called Tony ‘papa’ or ‘daddy’, and he never hugged the man or got too close. Tony understood, of course, he w

Back in the throes of battle, things had slowed down. The creature was bleeding horribly, and the ooze it spewed everywhere seemed toxic. It burned everything it touched, and eventually it started eating holes through Tony's armor.
"God damn it. JARVIS!"
"I'm recharging your boots sir. You should be shot out in just one minute."
Loki sat back wrapped in the blanket and closing his eyes again. Stark's gonna be making him pancakes anytime he wants them to make up for this one.
"Jarvis we forgot to tell you but we got married. And I'm pregnant." He told the AI.
"Congratulations Mr. Laufeyson/Odinson. Shall I refer to you as Mr. Stark from now on then?"
Chapter 74“Boys, I need you two to go clean up all your stuff, all right? And wash your hands; we’re making something special for dinner.” Tony grinned and only Toki seemed to think this was a good thing. He quickly nodded and ran off, grabbing all his things off the ground and shoving them into his room. Considering he survived on rotten food mostly, Tony’s cooking was nothing short of a delicacy to Toki.Chapter 741 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Tony smiled as he watched the boys leave before he took Remus in his arms again.
“Rest, all right? And don’t forget to bother JARVIS if you need anything.” Tony kissed his husband softly and turned to leave.
"I love you as well Anthony." Loki smiled at his husband before turning over to get comfortable in bed and enough to sleep better.
Remus looked over Tony's shoulder as they left for the living room. Fenrir ducked under Tony's arm as he headed for his bedroom but he came back with his fur blanket to wrap around himself.

“It wasn’t your fault.” She didn’t have to ask to know that’s what he was thinking. Tony had a bad habit of thinking he could save the world and that thus it was his job alone. But he couldn’t save everyone. They walked into the medical bay and Steve wasted no time in wrapping his arms around Pepper and holding her close.
As they made their way to the medical bay, Fenrir did all he could not to run and see his papa.
Loki had turned over on his side to be more comfortable. Hearing the sound of feet on the floor, extending an arm he held Fenrir tightly as the boy rushed over to him.
"Shh, shh, shh. It's alright now." Loki started to whisper to the boy in Norse which made Fenrir visibly calm down.
Remus started to fuss again when he realized where he was.
Toki had rushed forward to see how Loki was doing, hugging him and whispering to him.

"We were alone at the tower. But getting fresh air would be far better." Loki sat down next to Tony with a glass of cranberry juice. So much for wine at romantic dinners. "So where are we going?"
“Oh you’ll see. I don’t want to ruin the surprise.” Tony smiled playfully and sipped some juice as well. If he tried really hard, he could pretend it didn’t taste awful.
Loki huffed but noticed the wince on his husbands face. “Anthony It can't taste that bad considering that green stuff you drink taste absolutely foul."
“True, but I’ve been drinking that longer, I’m used to it. This stuff is…yeah.” Tony set his cup down then looked out the window. “Besides, it’s not like you like this stuff either.”

Before they left to Nelheim the gate keeper insisted they hurry as there was more than one Heklas to fight.
Tony started to fidget again. He munched away at his apple until he hit the core then tossed it to the side forgotten.
"Is the force field up?"
"Yeah, we're covered. Looks like that thing will hit us in a few hours."
"Split the force field. Fry one energy cube first then we'll switch to the other one. It won't be as strong, but it'll give us more cover time."
Bruce nodded and did so, his mind racing.
"Tony..." The doctor looked at his friend for a moment then spoke. "I don't know if anyone else has told you yet, but right now I'm really glad you're married to Loki."
There was a great deal of yelling in the meeting Loki and Odin had with the ruler of Nelheim. It wasn't until Loki threatened to gut the man like a sp

Tony whimpered before getting on and clinging to Loki for dear life when the horse began to move. But for as scared as he was of Siv, his awe of Asgard was even greater. He looked down at the bridge then back up ahead at the city, a smile creeping onto his face. It was larger than anything he'd ever seen. Several hundred New York cities could fit just in the center of it.
"Wow. Is all this made with magic? Do you guys do it by hand? Did your father build this? Where are we staying? Do I get a whole building to myself? How big are the rooms?" Questions began to pour out of Tony's mouth, but he didn't stop talking long enough to hear the answers.
"This is older than any of us here. It's looked like this my entire life.” Loki smiled forgetting Tony's other questions. “Asgard's beauty was compa
