Home [Loki x Reader (pt26)]It was time to go, so Tony said. So you bit your lip and blinked back tears, and turned and hugged Thor. His breath tickled your neck as he chuckled sadly and said goodbye.Home [Loki x Reader (pt26)] in Short Stories More Like This
"It isn't the end, we shall meet again," he promised, petting the back of your hair.
"Alright, big boy, let go so the rest of us can say g'bye," Tony said, a hand on your shoulder. You stood up and shook your head, holding open your arms for Tony but he waved you off to Steve. "I'm driving you there. We can say goodbye later, whatever."
Steve stood and gave you a nod, smiling fondly. Looked like it would be handshakes or salutes with him, but then you caught him chewing his lower lip, a spark of sadness in his eyes and you almost stumbled into a hug. He hesitated but lowered his arms around you and hugged back--a little stiffly, but it was still a hug.
When he let go, Virginia stood and smiled and you immediately headed for the elevator, followed by Tony.
"Allons-y. You ready?" he asked as the doors closed on your n
Intruder [Loki x Reader (pt36)]"So," you said, toying with the rubbery edge of the calla-lily as you hopped off the bottom rung of the ladder. "You're avoiding an answer."Intruder [Loki x Reader (pt36)] in Short Stories More Like This
"What? Oh." He rubbed the back of his neck, looking at you and then the entrance to the tunnel. "Yes. That. Um...I was going to tell you but you were a bit distracted..."
"Hang on, I'll tell you." He took your wrist and led you into the tunnel, you trying ever so diligently to be patient. It was a bit difficult to crouch through the small tunnel with all of these calla-lilies in your hand, but you shoved aside the irritation and started to nag.
"Some time today, Loki." The tunnel opened up and he turned and glared.
"Patience, woman! I was going to tell you right now."
There was a stretch of silence with him standing awkwardly, not meeting your eyes.
"He's not dead," he said with a strained voice through clenched teeth, toying with his black hair nervously.
You blinked. "Wait, what? You mean you didn't...kill him?"
Road [Loki x Reader (pt29)]It was strange, it was restless, the sleep you fell into. You could feel your heart pounding through every inch of you, like a drum. Your ears picked up blips of reality, spinning them into nightmarish visions. Thor, it was Thor, calling your name. He was stuck, he was dying, he was burning. Struggling. Fighting.Road [Loki x Reader (pt29)] in Short Stories More Like This
You felt cold. Why were you cold if there was fire? Why was Thor telling you to wake up?
Your conscious awoke. This was a dream. You were frozen. Every image faded into black, all you could see were fuzzy light spots under your eyelids. You tried to make yourself move. What could you do?
You fought the dormancy of your subconscious, trying to maintain a steady train of thought. What had you been thinking about? Dammit! Thor was screaming at you from a mountain top. What had you been thinking about? It was snowing. It was cold. The snow stung so badly it was almost unreal. No, not unreal, real! Yes, that was it, wake up!
The dream snapped. You couldn't open your eyes but you he
Eclipse [Loki x Reader (pt23)]The jingling of the shackles echoed through the mournful room as his palm rested against your injured hip. You sucked air through your teeth.Eclipse [Loki x Reader (pt23)] in Short Stories More Like This
"You you came to see me." His velvety voice caressed your heart, and his bright eyes pierced the darkness of your soul. "Thor told me you were injured "
His hand cooled your sore hip, bringing much-needed relief from the pain. You nodded, a tear rolling down your cheek as you placed a hand over his. "They all lied to me, Loki."
His eyes dropped. "You're getting tired of that, aren't you?"
"Why did you lie to me?" you asked, throat tightening. "I thought you actually cared about me. I thought I meant more to you than just a just a side-kick."
He didn't say anything, still looking away. The cold hand on your hip caused you to shiver.
"I did not mean to hurt you," he said sadly.
"That's what Thor said. But you still did hurt me."
"I did not mean to," he repeated. The cold spread down into your thigh and Loki still would not look
Friendly [Loki x Reader (pt19)]"Alright, follow me, I told Thor to go spar with Steve or something. That should keep them busy for awhile," said Tony as he stepped behind you out of the building, zipping up his thin hoodie and donning a pair of aviators. It was uncanny, he looked like a completely different person!Friendly [Loki x Reader (pt19)] in Short Stories More Like This
People are stupid.
Because no one even suspected him the whole five blocks, so his conversation with you went uninterrupted, for which you were not so thankful.
"So how much did you hear?" Tony asked you as you two started down a sidewalk.
You feigned confusion. "Huh?"
"Oh please." He peered at you over the top of his glasses. "As if I didn't figure out you were evesdropping when I came out and saw you with the Cap."
You watched your feet. "I heard when she wanted to come back to work for you."
"Mm," he said. "Are you okay with her staying?"
"Why wouldn't I be?"
"I dunno," he shrugged. "You don't seem too thrilled about it. In fact, you didn't seem all that thrilled about her being safe and okay. Did some
Forgiven [Loki x Reader (pt31)]"Are we there yet?" you nagged, staring out the window.Forgiven [Loki x Reader (pt31)] in Short Stories More Like This
"We left five minutes ago!" Lynda snapped. "Of course not!"
You grinned mischievously. "I'm hungry, momma," you whined. Thor chuckled.
Lynda whipped her head around and glared at you. "Don't."
You quieted, listening to the low hum of the car as Lynda drove along. So quiet. And you were so anxious. You were going to find Loki, and you weren't sure how that would play out. Was Thor right, or was he just being way too optimistic? It was in his nature, after all. Yes, Loki had let you live, but what if it was just a warning to stay the hell away?
What if he tried to kill you this time?
What if he succeeded?
Well. There wasn't much you could do about that in the present, in a moving vehicle, so you promptly pushed that thought to the back of your mind and contented yourself with pestering Lynda. "I have to go to the bathroom."
"I told you to go bef--! Oh no, no. Stop. I told you to stop," she groaned.
"Are we there yet?"
You heard Lynd
Bound [Loki x Reader (pt24)]Rubbing the soreness in the back of your neck from the night with Thor, you pointed the key toward the lock, heart ramming your ribcage with each centimeter closer you brought it--and Thor's fingers enclosed around your wrist.

"There's..." Thor said, soft, uneasy. "There's something I should tell you first..."
Your heart caught a brief spell of vertigo. "What? What is it? What's wrong?"
Thor held up his hands, shaking his head. "It is not anything gravely important...it is only...he won't be able to talk to you."
"What do you mean?" Wasn't that the point of coming down here?
"He's...wearing a muzzle."
You were more confused than anything else. "A muzzle? But why...?"
"The tongue is his sword," Thor explained--though the fact was fairly evident. "Well...now it won't be such a shock when you see him." He nodded you on, and you unlocked the door, the key shaking in your hand.
You took a deep breath and held it, leaving Thor's side for the dark chamber. "Loki?"
Not the eager
