    Summary

    Lan Qiren was running to catch up, because he was always running to catch up.

    He was determined not to fall behind, but he was slow, as always, and tired more easily than the others, and then he got distracted and realized a considerable distance had opened up between him and the rest of the group. He ran to catch up –

    He tripped.

    He was going to fall flat on his face, he realized as he pitched forward, throwing his hands up in front of his face to try to blunt the pain since humiliation was already a given. He probably wasn’t far enough behind for them not to see this, and then his brother would turn his face away and sigh, aggravated, his shoulders slumping in disappointment at how Lan Qiren had lost him and their sect face all over again.

    Lan Qiren was so bound up in his gloomy thoughts that it took him a moment to realize that he had not, in fact, hit the ground. Someone had caught him.

    Lan Qiren straightened himself up immediately and dropped into a deep salute. “Thank you for your help –”

    He looked up.

    “…Sect Leader Wen,” he finished weakly.

    Summary

    Nie Huaisang was yelling at him again, voice painfully shrill and piercing, but for Nie Mingjue, to hear his brother worried for him and not from him made for a nice change.

    Anyway, he himself had probably been just as shrill, when it had been his father that –

    It wasn’t that bad, he reminded himself. Baxia was as strong a presence in his mind as ever, their bond uninterrupted. It only looked bad from the outside.

    It looked – pretty bad from the outside.

    Summary

    None of Frigga’s children were carried by her.

    This is a thing she does not like to dwell upon. They are all hers, in all their faults and glories, their privileges and pains. Triumphs and mistakes. They have all been fed and soothed and rocked to sleep in her arms. Sung to and told stories, and loved more fiercely than they could possibly know.

    But for a supposed Goddess of Fertility… perhaps it is peculiar.

    For a Goddess of Love? Not so much.

    Summary

    Plot-divergence during Thor: Ragnarök which leaves Loki in a different position when he falls to Sakaar. Instead of becoming the Grandmaster's toy to gain power, he enters the ring as a gladiator in a bid to win his freedom.

    Obviously, this is Loki, so things spin out of control from there...

    Featuring! Frigga being spoopy, brothers trying to reconcile and threats to the universe!

    Warning! Reading summaries of fics before reading the one before it will result in spoilers. Sometimes HUGE ones.
