    Summary

    Fucking and music: the twin triumphs of humans. Oh, both existed before humanity, but humanity refined them. A sparrow sings in a tree. A dog fucks in the dirt. But a human -- a human -- they sing of their lost love over the sea, in a sweet voice wrenched with pain; they make love beneath the stars, contemplating their brief existence. They ascribe meaning to every little thing. It’s glorious. Hypnotic. They have such brief lives but by all that ever was, they make them count.

    Summary

    "What do you intend?"

    They're the first words Loki's said since he'd awoken on the floor.

    Summary

    “So what if I ate the cheeseburger?” Tony shouts, throwing a wrench at Loki’s head. The bastard dodges it easily as he stalks closer. “That doesn’t mean I belong to you!”

    “Oh, not to me,” Loki says lowly, a smile like honey slowly spreading its way across his face. “But with me? Surely you’ve heard of Persephone.”

    “A cheeseburger isn’t some fucking mystical pomegranate, you smirking lunatic.” It isn’t, it just isn’t. Not even close. "You aren't even Greek!" he adds, throwing another wrench which is dodged just as easily.

    Loki spreads his hands wide, posing like the showman he is. “I think you’ll find that a pomegranate symbolizes the fruit of the dead. Your cheeseburger, made of dead flesh, was topped with fruit. It’s close enough for the symbolism to bind.”

    “Ah-hah! There’s no fucking fruit on a cheeseburger,” Tony says triumphantly, finger pointing accusingly at Loki. “I fucking win, no going back to crazy town with you. I stay here in my workshop, and you fucking leave before I call the Avengers.”

    “Oh Stark,” Loki murmurs, almost affectionately. “A tomato is a berry, you ignorant fool.”
