    Summary

    Set shortly after both the first volume of Agent of Asgard and also the story arc of Original Sin: Thor & Loki: with Kid!Loki gone, Loki in his newly-adolescent body is still trying to come to terms with the unfamiliar sensations of acute guilt. He doesn't like it, but after meeting his elder self and being reminded how being more callous about such things tended to make him behave like an utterly ruthless ass-hat, he's willing to embrace what he would normally consider to be weaknesses, if it means spitting in destiny's eye and defying the expectations of his elder self and Asgard alike.

    It's inconvenient that Tony Stark is once more taking notice of him, however. He has more history with the inventor than any of the other Avengers ever knew, but Stark still sees the kid who tagged along after Thor, and thus seems to be struggling a great deal to keep himself convinced that the Loki he once knew died in the Siege of Asgard. Not that he doesn't suspect the little shit had a backup plan, so when Loki seems to recall a few key details that his younger, tabula rasa self could not have known, the inventor gets a bit suspicious.

    Summary

    Love is many things, not all of them good. Theirs has been an inescapable trap, drawing them back in no matter how many times they try to stop it. Love is many things. Theirs is bloody and painful, a codependent mess. And that's not all it is. Love is...

    Summary

    "Our tsar has three sons. Handsome lads, if one appreciates such things. None are married...yet." The old woman snorts. "That's why you're here, though, isn't it?"

    "I'm to return the arrow to its archer. I know nothing beyond that. Other than it's," Vasilissa's mouth twists, "fate."

    "So you find it cruel?"

    The hut closes around her, the air warm and heavy. It's thick with the sent of rosemary and sage from the bundles of herbs hanging from the beams above them. The bones of previous suppers (hares and chickens and maybe even men) rattle in a hauntingly soothing melody. "I'd rather find it kind. But at the moment, I miss my shop." She shakes her head, and some of the syrupy warmth tugging at her mind fades. "It's childish of me, I know."

    "And you're no child."

    Summary

    (for the PL fan meme. prompt: Anton is a *real* vampire. yes, i filled it twice.) Luke tried to jerk away, but the shadows had him, now, wrapped around his wrists, tilting his head to the side, and he wanted to close his eyes, as if he could shut it away, as if he could open them and none of it would have happened--

    --but he didn't, and so he saw the Professor force his way through the crowd behind them, looking-- absolutely furious, when Luke wasn't sure he'd ever seen the Professor more than 'vaguely annoyed'.
