    Summary

    Here unfolds a tale of war, desire, and warring desires.

     

    After the invasion of New York, Tony figures out Loki’s game, and he lays out an ultimatum that he realizes the trickster can’t escape from, maneuvering Loki into agreeing to be an ally, rather than a foe, if only when the time comes.

    A god’s sworn word is a promise that the god cannot break, but once Thanos’ head is parted from his shoulders, all bets will be off: no protections, no alliance, Loki free to do whatever he pleases, so long as he can still evade recapture at Asgard’s hands. So it’s simple, Tony tells himself: trust the war, not the god.

    It should have been simple. It was doomed to be anything but, because infatuation has no place in a war-zone, but Tony is prone to impropriety at all sorts of slightly impractical times, or he wouldn’t have wound up with the god of lies in his bed so frequently in the first place. Practicality and safe-distance plans are all going wrong, and Tony likes it too much to stop.

    This is amazing. Some minor technical flaws with grammar and punctuation, but this is an incredible long and detailed depiction of how Loki and Tony get together and build a serious relationship with each other. The worldbuilding is fascinating, the original characters are likeable, the plot works and fits together so well... I am going to reread this multiple times, I can already tell.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Found the first story on ffnet, loved it, found it here much later and was reminded why - it is well-plotted and well-written, and I was very happy to read the rest of the series as well. This series builds their relationship without ignoring their problems, and while I did not expect the resolution I find it extremely satisfying.

    Summary

    The day after the invasion Tony wakes up and his tower is intact again; everything is exactly the way it was before this whole mess went down. It doesn’t take him long to catch up but he can’t figure out why he’s in a time loop – so he does what anyone would: fuck things up while trying to find a way to fix this. Somewhere along the way, his priorities change and suddenly he finds himself involved neck-deep in Norse family drama, along with some other stuff.

    A very enjoyable take on time loops which is beautifully written - not just the plot itself, the technical skills are impressive too. And to think I only found it because a different story had a reference to the Pink Tutu...

But before they can, he needs to understand his purported teammates, and bring them together. This quest starts with Lord Anthony Stark.
