    Summary

    Feelings are always inconvenient.
    Good thing that Loki is determined to ignore them then.

     

    Companion piece to Reputation, this one running from Loki’s POV, so it can be read on its own (I think?)

    Summary

    The thing about reputation is that it always precedes you.
    Which is a bit unfair, if you ask Mobius. But then, nobody ever asks.

    Summary

    When Mobius descends the tiny back staircase to open M. M. Mobius & Co. Rare Books at a completely random hour on Tuesday afternoon, he finds someone already inside his shop, curled up in a chair and drinking a pot of his tea. The man is dressed in an all-black suit with a black shirt and tie, like a fancier version of one of those goth kids that sometimes show up in his shop looking for books on the occult or other such things that Mobius refuses to sell them. The visitor’s long legs are tucked up underneath him, and slender, elegant hands carefully cradle one of Mobius’s rarer tomes, a volume of Old Norse poetry.

    A few weeks ago, this would have been cause for concern, to put it mildly. But then again, a few weeks ago, his bookshop hadn’t yet acquired its very own god of mischief.

    (Or, the unlikely friendship between an ordinary human bookshop owner and a Norse trickster god, and how it grows to become something that neither of them ever thought they'd have.)

    Updated to include a new epilogue!

    Summary

    Loki’s lip curled, and he went to shove En Dwi’s hand away from his face. He was saved from having to do so, however, by a body muscling in between him and En Dwi, causing the offending limbs to slither away uselessly.

    “Hey babe,” Came an unfamiliar voice, from a very unfamiliar yet very welcome man. “Sorry I took so long, there were roadworks.”

    The man was older than Loki, although probably ages with En Dwi. His hair shone silver beneath the lights overhead, falling in artful waves around his face. He was dressed in a white button-up shirt with the sleeves rolled to his elbows, with a pair of dark brown slacks and ankle boots. He was decently attractive, and also a fucking godsend.

    ~ en dwi (grandmaster) is loki's ex, and is bothering him at a bar. mobius steps in.

    Summary

    It was unfair really, how good they looked on him. The brown t-shirt was too short for him, raised slightly around his navel and showing off exposed pale skin whenever he moved his shoulders about. The dark red sweatpants were also a little too short, and a bit too baggy. They were tied loosely, hanging off his hips and showing off even more skin. A well defined hip bone was just there for all to see. Curly thin black hair stood out against his soft pale skin.

    As if realizing what had caused Mobius to stand there staring, Loki adjusted his clothes to try and cover his exposed midsection. He looked around the apartment, glaring at the pile of blankets resting on the edge of the couch. “You are not expecting me to sleep there, are you? Mobius, I am a prince, I am a God, I do not sleep on the couch.”

     

    ---
    Rather they were an ill fitting pair he was borrowing, or a set made to fit him exactly, Loki looked good in sweatpants. And Mobius was suffering every time he had to watch the man walk around the apartment in those godforsaken pajamas.
