2 Works in Ancient One/Loki (Marvel)
Once upon a time, one Loki had a mom and a stepdad, and maybe a father, but as for that, he hoped he had a dead father, because that would excuse his father never contacting him. Twenty years ago he prayed 'I wish to see my blood father once', but that didn't come true. Good, dead one would be best, sure. Just a whim. And he had a twin sister, and older siblings, and he was mostly satisfied with his lot. Had been.
Would that he never prayed, ages ago, he thought.
He had been happy. He knew that, now. Every night, now, he'd wonder if he had somehow been punished for his ingratituted. For only sometimes realising fully how happy his life was.
For being an ingrate, yep.
What Higher Powers, punished for that? He had no idea, but he wanted to burn those Higher Powers, whenever they might be found. And then, the perpetrator, and then, himself.
One lesson was, for sure, that he took: never pray. Never hope. Never close your eyes for half a second, when your precious world is all around you, never leave it for a second. Never run away, never waste a single day. Never visit a plague known as kings or something, in secret.
That invokes some kind of a curse, apparently, sure. Or horrid coincidences.

The Other knew that Loki would be coming for him. To take from him what had been taken from Loki. Their deaths would be slow. Exquisitely so. He would make the Other watch as he pulled the World Walker apart, helpless as Loki destroyed what was most precious to him. Flay the Walker alive as he begged for release. The Other would plead and cry for Loki’s mercy.
But he had none.
What little mercy the god had possessed had been murdered by the Other’s hand, and he would pay. They would both pay dearly.
King Loki has ruled Midgard for half a century, but when his beloved consort is killed by an assassin from another universe, the heartbroken god needs more power than a magicless, heroless Earth can provide to gain revenge against the killer.
Loki needs the Infinity Stones.
