Well, that's pretty much how I feel about a couple guys I spent seven years in a dorm with at Hogwarts.

I remember one day in my 4th year they convinced me that this pretty girl I had a crush on was totally in love with me.

Wesley was wearing one of his nice coats, because he has an amazing selection of coats (even I will admit to this), and I was wearing my typical suspenders and button up shirt outfit.

He slowly sat up, sniffling and he knew he was catching a cold. He glanced down at the cold ground as he thought about how if he was a Fire bender he could build a fire and keep himself from feeling so cold. He didn't even have a set of matches to use. He hugged his arms around himself and sighed, a little puff of air lingering briefly.

The room was small for a bed chamber, and resembled that of one of the healer’s quarters. Sif glanced around skeptically. “Where are we?” she inquired, forgetting to keep her voice low.
Loki glared at her, his eyes darting to the partially opened door. He gently set Caedra on the bed and unwrapped his coat from around her, covering her with a warm blanket. He brushed her hair out of her face, his eyes searching as he listened closely to her breathing. Though still shallow, it was not as weak as before.

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

It took no time at all for news of Frigga’s death to spread all throughout the city. Many, too many, had died in the Dark Elves’ attack, and while each death was a horrible loss, there were few as affecting as that of the Queen’s. Clair had been in the palace at the time, and she was one of the first to know, and she was stunned by hearing it. Frigga dead? There had been very few people in Clair’s life that had ever died, nor had they been murdered, and none of them had been anyone she had been particularly close with...until now.
In the time that Clair had come to Asgard, she and Frigga had become rather close – their shared concern, love, and care for Loki was a bond that was shared by very, very few. Clair and Frigga would spend hours on end talking, and quite often Frigga would tell stories about Loki when he was a boy. Clair had always enjoyed listening, and she never ceased to find it touching how Frigga’s love

“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.

Darkness surrounded him. Bit by bit he became more aware of his surroundings, though everything was still dark. He tried to move, but found that it was exceedingly difficult. Fatigue washed over him, but as he moved he discovered something else. His hands were bound behind his back.
Loki was now more aware of his surroundings – particularly aware of the sharp pain at the back of his head. Slowly, he opened his eyes, squinting and blinking as his eyes adjusted to the light. It took him a few moments before he could see, and then the pain in his head made it difficult to focus.
He had never seen Jotunheim in the daylight. It hardly looked different, though the darkness was not all so…dark. The ice was whiter as the light hit it, though staring for too long nearly blinded him. Loki could see more details in the landscape. He could spot out far more crevices and caves then he had been able to the night before. After seeing all this, he turned his attention to his o

After handing Loki over to the Frost Giants, Titus quickly rejoined Lucius and Dronicus, who had taken Caedra further away. Titus had not wanted to risk the child seeing Loki and of course making far too much noise. He did not wish to kill the child, though if she saw Loki, he might just have to. What he had said to Loki was true – he would not kill an innocent child. But what could be defined as “innocent”? That was a question that no one could truly answer.
“We must keep going,” Titus commanded to Lucius and Dronicus absently as he walked past them, hardly caring that they had stopped.
Dronicus, as always, was the first to complain. “Can’t we just have a short break? We’ve been going on forever.”
Titus paused and turned sharply back towards him, his red eyes glaring. “No!” he snapped. “We must keep going, or do you wish to die out here in the cold? Don’t think that the Frost Giants are the o

It was not until morning of the next day that Sif and Loki left their shelter and continued on their way through the vast land of Jotunheim. Loki was particularly upset that they’d had to wait so long, but the Jotuns had been very thorough in their search. Even leaving now was still a risk of being caught, but Loki would wait no longer to go after Caedra. If the Jotuns found them, then they would simply have to fight.
Sif gave a sigh as she stared out at all the land before them. “How far away are they?” she asked, glancing at Loki, who stood next to her, looking, watching – searching. He kept silent as he searched - his magic feeling for any signs of life of another master of magic.
“They are close,” Loki concluded as he turned and began walking.
Sif followed after him closely. Loki seemed more determined than ever, and much angrier than his usual self. “What is it?” she inquired.
“They are close to leaving,

You woke up slowly, your head pounding as you gasped for breath. There was a ringing sensation in your ears, and as you slowly lifted your head, it only got worse. Your chest ached from having apparently landed flat on your stomach, and you could feel as you slowly moved that your arms and legs were sore and no doubt had a variety of bruises and scrapes. As you managed to sit upright, you realized that you had been lying on the cold, wet ground, as evidenced by your damp clothes. Great.
You drew your legs closer to your body, and you tried to recall what had happened to bring you here. All that came to mind was a blur of flashing lights and high pitched sounds that you could not describe. It was a

Riyah sat alone in the dark, her back pressed up against the cold stone walls. She sniffled softly, the torrent of tears of hours gone by little more than a few sobs now. An involuntary shiver ran down her spine – from the cold or in fear, she could not tell at this point. What had happened to Loki? He had said he would return for her. He had sworn he would come back. But he was gone now. How could he return? She had tried repeatedly to search for him, but he was out of her sight, and she feared he was dead. Loki had the skills of magic to shield himself from her sight, yes, but even with what counter tricks she had learned, she could still not see him, and it scared her.
Riyah didn’t necessarily trust Loki, even now. What trust she had was out of necessity for her own survival. The god of Mischief had taken her, and without him, she would not survive any attempt to return home to Asgard. She wanted to hate him for what he had done. She wanted to

The fever broke the next day and from there Caedra’s health returned at a rapid rate. She was still the quiet child she had always been, but Loki could once again see the energy and life gleam in her eyes. She didn’t say much of Jotunheim and of course Loki would not mention it, but it seemed that Caedra would have little or no difficulty continuing in life. Loki had never doubted that the child was strong, but even he was surprised at how well she could handle something so traumatizing.
The days passed quickly and Caedra was becoming more and more impatient that she could not go outside. Loki could not explain to her why she could not leave, nor did he intend to try. He knew t
