    Summary

    England has just declared war on Napoleon, Naval captains are winning their laurels on a daily basis, and Thor's ship is ordered to the South Seas to seek out a lost scientific vessel. It is an assignment for an old man, but the Admiralty will hear no reason. All hope of glory lost, he takes to sea in a foul temper.

    Loki is an artist employed by the naturalist who accompanies HMS Hope on the expedition of rescue and research. He is to make quick and accurate sketches of those plants that catch his employer's eye. For the first time in his life, the rest of his time is his own.

    Back home, their paths never would have crossed, but life at sea is different, and their shared journey brings many kinds of discovery.

    *****Now illustrated, tidied up, and with a reference chapter. If you have a downloaded copy, I'd suggest replacing it with a new version.*****

    Summary

    Loki shrugs and takes a sip of his wine. "This is nice," he acknowledges sadly, swirling the last little bit in his glass, and Hela's heart sinks. "But in answer to your question... I don't know. Your grandparents are dead. Bodi is dead. You and your brothers have lives, good lives." He slumps back in his chair, eyes closing. "I don't- my work is done. Now it's just a case of waiting."

    "I don't think it has to be that way," she tells him. It doesn't; she sees happy, joyful people every day, many of them much older than her father. "Maybe you're giving up too early."

    This story was written in response to this great prompt. I'm not sure I did it justice, but... when a plot bunny bites, there aren't a lot of options.

    Unbeta'd and edited a little too lightly. All mistakes are my own, and don't be shy about making me aware of them.

    The journey to Midgard should take a year and a day. Long enough for many things.
