I craft what I want, Thor!

Happy Birthday to :icontavoriel:, a proud member of Loki's Army!

Everyone else, if you want me to make you a necklace like this one, I have four more cubes left. Note me for a price quote. I don't feel like putting a price tag on my sister's birthday present :P

If this is the first piece of my jewelry you've seen, check out the rest of my gallery: [link] (Nerdy jewelry folder: [link] )

Vote for it on MemeBase right here: [link]

If the two little pictures didn't make it clear enough, the blue thing on the staff is a light blue Swarovski crystal cube. So basically, in this necklace, Loki has attached the tessaract to his staff!

(About 3 1/2 inches long, and the wire is enameled copper and aluminum.)

The title is based on the line, "I do what I want, Thor", from an animated Avengers series. The guy who played Loki posted it on Twitter one day, and the internet went wild. The phrase, "I do what I want", is now Loki's unofficial catchphrase.

Here's the obligatory fanfic to go along with the necklace:

"Nick! Clint!" The Black Widow sprinted around the
last corner and into the cargo hold. "It's a
trap!" she shouted. "Loki's released the Hulk

"Calm down, Natasha," Hawkeye said, putting his
hands on her shoulders. "Bruce is on the flight
deck with the Captain and Agent Hill getting ready
for the rendezvous with Tony. We already found out
who's been causing the commotion."

"Natasha, meet Kelly Keebler," Nick guestured to a
scared-looking girl with strange, scaly, green
patches of skin. "She's had an unfortunate run-in
with some gamma rays and her pet lizard. She still
won't tell us how she came aboard or why she felt
the urge to knock our supplies around--" he raised
an eyebrow at her "--but she seems satisfied for

"Nick, Loki's on the ship," Natasha said, "or was
at least. He appeard on the bridge suddenly, not
too long after you two went to investigate down
here. We talked for a while, then he made a cryptic
remark about Bruce. Not just about a generic
monster, or even a green monster," she added with a
nod to Kelly," but about Bruce specifically. Then
he left through the emergency exit, laughing
hysterically the whole--"

"Lady Romanoff! Proceed with the utmost caution!
My brother has decieved you!" Thor's umistakable
voice accompanied thundering footsteps, and soon he
was in the cargo bay too.

"It's okay, Thor," Clint reassured him. "We know
it's not the Hulk, and there was no nasty surprise
waiting for us." He guestured to Kelly. "She's

"What happened?" Nick asked. "I take it Loki's
escaped again. Did he take the tessaract?"

Thor shook his head. "He attempted such a venture,
but we put a stop to it. I pursued him all the way
to your vessel. We battled for a time, until he
warned me that I would 'have my hands full on the
ship.' Then he evaded me. The technitian on the
bridge confided that Loki had indeed been there,
but not for long, and that Lady Romanoff left in
great haste at my brother's remark on Doctor
Banner. I asked him to recite the precise wording
of the remark."

"He said: 'Still think Bruce marches under your...
banner?'," Natasha told him.

"Exactly!" Thor said. "Far too trite for my
brother's style. He was mocking you. Then I
recalled seeing Doctor Banner with Captain Rogers
and Agent Hill on the flight deck. And so I knew
then of my brother's trickery."

More footsteps echoed from the doorway on the other
end of the cargo bay.

"Nick! Natasha!" Steve was running toward them,
already suited up in his stars and stripes. "What's
going on?"

Bruce and Agent Hill were right behind him.

"Thor!" Bruce said in surprise. "So we DID see you
fighting Loki in the clouds."

"We thought you'd run into some trouble, with the
intruder sir," Agent Hill added. "We're almost in
position to re-inforce Mr. Stark, and I wanted to
avoid a delay."

"I think it's under control now," Clint reassured

Nick was deep in thought. Finally he said what the
seven of them were thinking.

"Then what did Loki want?"

* * *

"Status report!" Loki called briskly as he paced
across the bridge.

"Both engine displays are free from flashing red
lights," Loki answered from his terminal.

"Our present course shall bring us to the city of
New York in five minutes' time," Loki added from the
navigation console. "Do you wish to go someplace

"Not yet," Loki sank back into the comfiest chair he
could find. "Let us see where they were going in
such a hurry."

He couldn't help but chuckle to himself. After all,
even the god of trickery (who does what he wants)
needs to find some way to indulge himself on his


-No, :icontavoriel:'s real name isn't Kelly Keebler. It was an alias. Obviously :D

-When the Black Widow talks to Hawkeye, she doesn't call him "Hawkeye", she calls him "Clint" because that's his name. But you guys probably don't know that. Which makes it hard to write stories where they talk to each other. I tried to make it easy to understand who's who, but here's a handy chart just in case:

Natasha Romanoff=Black Widow
Nick Fury=Samuel Jackson's character with the eyepatch
Clint Barton=Hawkeye
Bruce Banner=The Hulk
Steve Rogers=Captain America
Tony Stark=Iron Man
Loki=Loki :P

I really don't know what happens next. Any ideas? I'll post any funny suggestions :D

Mine: The Lokis drop the Avengers off so they can go help Iron Man. Nobody notices he's at the controls. Three days later they find half the ship in a field outside Vegas and the other half floating a few miles off the coast of Rio.

Here are some of :icontavoriel:'s Loki comics:

I finished your story, and in the spirit of do-what-I-want, I'm posting it here in the comments C:

It's funny, but it's also sad. Because Loki. Whoops.

Every Loki on the bridge is grinning.

Then one of them stops. Soon, the original is the only one who does not look merely contemplative.

Birthdays can be troublesome.

How are you supposed to enjoy doing what you want when that’s what everyone wants and expects you to do?

A day when everything is about you is not about you at all. It’s about other people and how they get to play a game, humoring you.

On your birthday, your actions can’t be statements. Everything you do is adorable. Everything you do is a display of appreciation to the rest of the world for the great, unasked-for, once-a-year gift of “freedom.”

Going off by yourself and making personal accomplishments fixes the problem somewhat… but that feels like cheating.

If you’re Thor, all of this goes over your head and birthdays make you feel special. If you’re Loki…

Oh hey. If you’re Loki and Thor finds you on the bridge of his pals’ ship, his face crinkles up and he shouts your name in surprise.

All of the Lokis but one disappear.

“Hello Brother.”

“You must return to Asgard with me,” Thor says. “This world has not forgotten you or your crimes. This is a bad place for you to be.”

Loki puts a hand over his mouth and looks contemplative for a minute. His thumb and forefinger stretch along his face in a way reminiscent of the muzzle he wore.

He looks up.

“Everywhere is a bad place for me to be,” he says. Bitterly.

“The others feared your words,” Thor said. “They saw only an enemy. A vanquished foe. I had to show them that you were both defeated and non-threatening. Did I not allow you to speak once more when we had returned home?”

“Your kindness is overwhelming, and I’m sure I don’t deserve it,” Loki says dryly. “Like Odin’s kindness for…” he frowns.

“Odin is your father,” Thor says. “Address him as such.” Goodness, that crinkled face. “And he did show you kindness. If you remember, I was banished for crimes less severe than yours.”

Loki smiles.

“I continue to be a disappointment to him, it seems; he finds he cannot banish the willing.”
“Brother,” Thor says, “We will soon arrive at the City of New York to appear at a sporting event. Director Fury says we do a thing called Publicity. They will come to this part of the ship very soon, to land it. I was relieved when they allowed me to return you home, the first time. After this recent prank of yours, they may deem Asgard as ill-equipped to contain you. Please, Brother. I do not want you in their hands. Let me hide you from then. We can return home and all will be well. That would be the best thing for you. Please.”

Loki seems to consider. Then he smiles again.

“Don’t think I need your help to hide, Thor. And I really don’t think you’re ever not going to fall for that.”

Just as Fury and Hill come striding through the door, Loki flickers and vanishes.

“Thor, were you talking to someone?” Hill asks. “I thought I heard two voices.”

Thor just shakes his head.


When Dr. Bruce Banner learned that the intruder was, whatever her purpose, cursed with unpredictable abilities stemming from gamma radiation exposure, he lost all interest in what Thor had called Publicity and went to the lab with her to see if he could help cure her.

It took a lot of guts to go check to see if that had really happened, but Loki did, and he was rewarded with a confirmation of success.
Satisfied, Loki scoots down the hall in his borrowed SHIELD uniform, away from the lab, to the relative safety of NOT RIGHT CLOSE TO DR. BANNER.

What a coincidence, really. To find the girl just when he was on his way to CLOSER TO DR. BANNER THAN WOULD BE OPTIMAL.

If I put her on the ship, he will see his anger in her and feel empathy. He is a scientist, a doctor, and a kind man. He will try to help her. That will keep him occupied.


Loki knows that he is superior to both Dr. Banner and the Hulk. He knows that Dr. Banner is quite averse to becoming the Hulk. He knows that fighting or evading the Hulk would not be a great challenge to him if he does not make the mistake of trying to reason with it.

He also knows what a stone floor feels like when you smack into it very forcefully with your face.

Strange looks from passersby tell him that scooting must not be the way that your average SHIELD agent gets from place to place. But each step brings him farther from Dr. Banner, so they can stare all they want.

The ship has landed by now, and the Avengers have all departed, off to do the Publicity.
Playing Captain of the Giant Magical Aircraft did not give Loki the pleasure he had hoped it would. And talking with Thor has put a glum shadow over his mind.

What to do now?

The day is still young. The Hulk is busy, and Thor promised a large crowd of people in New York that don’t like Loki or care in the least that it is his birthday.


The Publicity is not easy to find. Thor said it would happen at a sporting event, but the city is large and contains more than one arena.

How long does the Publicity last? Will Loki miss it?

Thankfully, he spots a bus that has a picture with all of the details about the Publicity, right there on the side. He almost doesn’t notice it, there are so many advertisements everywhere. On the way to the Publicity, he notices that a mortal has drawn something on one of the ads. He is amused. He should draw on the ads too! But he has nothing to write with.

After a lot of walking purposefully and a little getting lost, Loki finds the arena where the Avengers are. The sporting event is going on, and the Avengers, if they are here, are lost in the crowd; the Publicity must be over. But there is a great big screen that shows what is happening on the field. A great big screen and a huge audience.

The sports players stop what they are doing, afraid, as Loki strides across the field in golden armor. Tension ripples through the crowd. Loki approaches a man with a voice-casting technology device and holds out his hand. The man gives it to him. The police aren’t here yet, and the mortal knows who this is.

“Hello everyone,” Loki says. “Hello Avengers.”

He smiles.

“It is my birthday today. That is all.”


“Brother, it was unwise of you to return to earth,” Thor says.

“Stop talking,” Loki says.

“It was most unwise of you to show yourself in an area where Mr. Barton and Lady Romanoff were present,” Thor says.

“Please stop talking,” Loki says.

“We were going to celebrate your birthday here,” Thor says. “Mother told the chefs to make you your favorite food for dinner and a cake. We were all going to visit you in your cell.”

“I’d appreciate it if you would please stop talking,” Loki says.

“I do not know why Barton would bring his bow to a Publicity,” Thor says. “But I suppose I would bring my hammer more places, if I could fit it in a small carrying case. How are you doing?”

“I was referring to the version of stop talking where you stop talking,” Loki hisses.

“Brother, this is my fault,” Thor says sadly. “I shouldn’t have gone to the Publicity while you were still in need, wandering around the strange City of New York. I should have been looking for you. I’m sorry you had this happen on your birthday.”

“Thor!” Loki snaps. “This isn’t my birthday! Not my real one. No one knows when I was born. You and your parents, stop this charade, stop bothering me on an arbitrary date every year!”

“It’s not an arbitrary date,” Thor says quietly. “It’s the day Father brought you home. Every year, we celebrate your first day as part of our family.”

“My first day LIVING with YOUR family,” Loki says.

Thor does not know what to say. He stands there awkwardly for a time, then finally leaves.

Loki doesn’t watch him go.


“What did I say, he’s crazy,” Bruce says, shaking his head, when the other Avengers tell him what happened at the football game. “Did you catch him?”

“Thor pulled Natasha off of him, grabbed him, and flew back to the ship,” Steve says. “They and the Tesseract were long gone by the time we made it back.”

Natasha says something in Russian. She uses her dangerous voice. Clint pats her affectionately.

“I wonder what he was plotting,” Bruce says. “Or is it really that all he wanted was attention?”

“I’m beginning to think they don’t have that in Asgard,” Tony says.

Bruce thinks that’s funny, but the others don’t think Tony should be encouraged.

“Well, whatever he wanted, he’s gone,” Steve says.

“He got presents, too” Natasha says, stroking Clint’s cheek. “Should have gotten more.”

“I didn’t want to hit you,” Clint says.

“When it’s my birthday, don’t get me anything,” Tony says.

“Does it ever occur to you that you can participate in the conversation instead of randomly throwing out what you think are witty remarks?” Steve asks.

And Loki is soon forgotten.

Wow, that was good! :D

I don't think you've ever written any Loki stories yet. What have I done?! Now you won't sleep for three days...or until you've fixed all of Marvel's weird parts in Loki's entire storyline. (Did you hear he dies or something and re-incarnates himself as a woman for quite a while?)

Every reputable source has told me that Hawkeye and Black Widow are just really REALLY good friends. So when I ignored that and added (what I believe is called) a "ship-tease", I was really subtle about it. I still really liked yours though. Hey, for all I know, maybe he's never accidentally shot her before, and that was all it took to strike up the right conversation to bring them together in between scenes.

Finally, I think Hawkeye might want to consider "Precise Shot" next time he gets a feat. I'm surprised he hasn't taken it yet considering his archer build. It lets you shoot into a grapple without the 50% chance of hitting the wrong person. :D
Tavoriel's avatar
dawww thank you :D

Loki you are not supposed to be a woman >:( yes I read about that and it is just not right >:(

I should write moar Loki stories :B

I'm thinking Hawkeye can shoot whoever he aims at no matter who else is around. But he just rully rully dun want to hit Natasha~ <3
