    Summary

    If you have not seen Thor and want to, then turn away right this very minute. Spoilers ahead in this little description. The movie had Thor, Loki, Lady Sif and the Warriors Three go to Jotunheim, stir up trouble but be rescued in the nick of time by Odin who was so incensed by Thor doing this against his decrees that he banished him from Asgard. We find out that Loki had intentionally let it leak about their adventure, thus alerting Odin and causing his timely arrival. That's the movie. After they got back from Jotunheim, I went a slightly different way.

    Summary

    "After Odin fell into the Sleep, Loki kept going back to the Vault every few hours to stand before the plinth where the Casket of Ancient Winters lay. Like a guilty man returning to the scene of the crime. But what was the crime, he wondered, and whose? Loki’s driving his father past the brink of exhaustion by confronting him with the truth? Or Odin’s abandoning his son when he most needed his father's guidance? Or was it earlier: the lie he had told Loki for his whole life only to reveal the truth in the wrong way, at the wrong moment, and then escape taking responsibility for the aftermath? ...

    "He saved my life, Loki reminded himself; I would have died if he hadn't taken me. But was that even true? Could he believe Odin’s word about anything, now? Was he a rescued castoff or a hostage? ... Loki was starved for knowledge, and he knew he would not get it from Odin. Nor could he expect truth from his mother, from Frigga: Odin might well have told her the same lies. No, there was only one person he could ask: Laufey himself. As a king to another king, Laufey owed him the courtesy of truth."
