[livejournal.com profile] gnine came up with a thought last night that I had to fic, as it fixes the biggest problem I had with Thor:TDW. This is about the closest I've come to writing MCU!Odin in character. I usually like to take a bit from Norse myth and have Odin be as conniving and clever as his second son. But really, this is even more fun, and will be my headcanon since it's unlikely it will ever actually be jossed...

Loki is not the only trickster in the family.

--

Despite the general fandom disillusionment, the household has continued to watch Agents of SHIELD, and the last couple eps have been fun. Not sure I'd recommend it to anyone who dropped it, as it hasn't really resolved most of the problems it started off with (the cast is still too white and too young and too shallow); but it's becoming the team show I wanted it to be, and I'm hoping it will continue. If it keeps up like this, it may be able to fill the hole that Warehouse 13 is going to leave in my fangirl heart when it ends next year. The last couple eps of AoS have had team worry and lots of Fitz-Simmons and Coulson-May ambiguous co-dependency, much to enjoy...

If not as much as I'm enjoying this season of Arrow! Hands down the show I'm looking forward to the most on the weekly roster. I still need to do that pimp post. It's not a perfect show, but it is some damn fine TV, and any fan of superheroes handled dramatically ought to be watching, because they do things right that I've never seen pulled off before. And tomorrow's ep looks to feature a lot of Diggle (and I may hope, lots of Diggle/Oliver slashiness)...

Loki Runway, read by reena_jenkins

Go, listen and delight! \o/

Also, OTW is holding its first membership drive of the year!

Fandom Is Love: Organization for Transformative Works Membership Drive, April 3-9


If you're curious where your money would be going, here's an explanation of AO3's annual costs - owning the servers is awesome but doesn't come cheap!

I've been a volunteer at OTW/AO3 for 4 years now, and I have never met a more diverse and more committed group of fans; we come from all kinds of fandoms, and the one thing we all have in common is that we're all dedicated to putting all resources into making the Org the best it can be, to serve as much as fandom as well as possible.

And if you're like to donate time - volunteering will re-open later this month. Become a tag wrangler! See the world (of tags)! Engage in serious discussions over whether the canonical should be Cock Blocking, Cock-blocking or (as it turned out due to majority rule) Cockblocking! :D

Summary:
Thor takes Loki back to Asgard in chains, but this does not mean that Loki's schemes are ended, or that Thor has or ever will give up on his brother. Though when danger threatens the realm, on which side will Loki fall?


Made it at slightly under 150K words (I ended up cutting about 4K in the editing, here and there). Feels strange to have nothing more to post, after putting up chapters approximately-weekly for the last six and a bit months. ...Yeah, it took longer to edit & post than it did to write the thing, geesh! And people have actually read it - and liked it, even! and left me amazing comments! - which kind of amazes me, considering it's gen, and so tightly focused on Loki & Thor, and my Loki isn't in step with a lot of the fandom anyway, being far too woobie for some and not woobie enough for others. But it's the story I wanted, the one I'm not going to get from Thor 2, so in the end I'm glad I did it.

Now I have to get back to writing - something! I've been slacking off, editing instead of writing new stuff, for the last couple months, stuck in my regular winter hibernation; but February tends to be the month I get going again. There's things there that want to be written, bubbling right under the surface; I just need to bait a hook and toss it in...

(...and stop playing Fallen London, or at least stop stalking my candle waiting for it to refresh, AGH [livejournal.com profile] sholio! :P :P :P)

Long time no post! Have a bunch of fanning to get to but first a fic post. Colluding with [livejournal.com profile] gnine very (very) late at night about Loki's costume choices led to this:

Loki hadn't been observed with a new scepter, and there had yet to be another alien invasion, but he was still a supervillain. SHIELD was on high alert for three months.
Which was when the new season of Project Runway started airing, and one of the designers strutting his stuff in the opening, boldly declaring, "I'll show you mortals how to make it work," set off every facial recognition program SHIELD had.


And "No Such Liberty" continues on, now with bonus Avengers:

My fic for [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang is live!

And being as I'm ridiculous, I just had to go and write a gen fusion/x-over for it - an anime fusion, effectively reducing my audience to sliiiightly above zero. But 12K has been one of my favorite series forever - it's always been a very much a Type A fandom for me, though, nothing I ever felt up to writing fic for. Fusions, however, are fair game, and so much fun! (I should mention that the fic is actually not crack in spite of the premise. Which was basically me realizing that Loki's name was too perfect to resist.)

Great thanks to [livejournal.com profile] beckerbell and [livejournal.com profile] gnine for the beta/pre-read/cheerleading/telling me that yes it was a ridiculous idea and I should totally do it anyway, and thanks to [livejournal.com profile] neptune47 for the lovely fanart!

Asgard was once a province in the kingdom of Lo, until its people were driven out, forced to become a wandering mercenary tribe. As the sons of the All-Father, Thor and Lopt are raised as brothers and Asgardian warriors, never guessing how their destiny is entwined with the kirin of Lo, the mystical creature born to choose the emperor who will save the realm from ruin.

(Or, the one where Loki is a magic black unicorn.)

Wish me luck - I submitted my novel to a publisher today! Now it's just a matter of sitting back and waiting for the rejection letters to roll in...*hides under desk*

In other writing news I finally finished the rough draft of "No Such Liberty". Which is substantially longer than said novel manuscript. I decline to admit how much. So grateful someone is reading this thing; it's so ridiculously self-indulgent and not most fans' cup of Loki-tea, but eh, no regrets. I DO WHAT I WANT (or what my muse wants, anyway...)

Any fanartists out there into Marvel? [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang is taking claims for stories now! (that I have a story in the big bang as so far yet unclaimed has nothing to do with this rec. Really. ._.)

Meanwhile the ongoing struggle with my Loki feels continues apace, have posted a few more chapters, with the latest one having one of my favorite moments in the story (if anyone ever wondered if I outgrew my love of smarm - no. No I have not.)

No Such Liberty (47,734 words) by faviconXparrot
Chapter 9-12
Loki slept peacefully for the day and the night and late into the next day; past noon he at last awoke, screaming.
xparrot: (loki)
Chapter 8 is a turning point originally intended to be at the halfway mark. As it's working out it's a little-less-than-a-quarter, though the general structure of the story still stands. (Good grief this is absurdly long; I have my doubts that anyone will actually read it to the end. I'd be more sorry if I didn't actually really like the story, with most of my favorite stuff what's coming up next. It's what I want - and what else is the point of fanfic, if not blatant self-indulgence?)

Chapter 6, Chapter 7, Chapter 8
In which Thor should know better.

Okay, so now I know, it takes 100K words to get Loki to actually go ahead and say something honestly without a hidden agenda. ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND WORDS. omg why god of lies whyyyyyyyyyyyyy *headdesk* (have I mentioned it's still not finished yet? Because it is not finished yet.)

And part 5 is up. Less than one fifth of the story posted. omg why. ;_;

Just posted chapter 4, for which [livejournal.com profile] gnine did awesome fanart, check it out!

...Meanwhile the fic itself is still not completed, but the first draft having broken 90K words it is now officially the longest single fic I have ever written...(and I would say that there is not even any smut to pad it, but honestly, though it's gen as far as 'shipping goes, the later bits are basically solid emo-porn. So.)

Okay, I've reached the point where I can no longer sit on this story, so I'm breaking my WiP rule and starting posting even though the first draft's not yet complete (and is well on its way to becoming the longest fic I've ever written, which is especially absurd given that it has no actual plot to speak of and is basically just a big bundle of ridiculous omg Loki whyyyyyy feels...)

So, Loki and Thor-&-Loki-brotherliness fic, set post-Avengers and picking up immediately where Thor & Loki's parts left off. This is not the way Thor II is going to go (no matter how hard I wish it so.) Angst and drama, and eventually redemption, but this being Loki it is taking rather the long way 'round...

And all the credit and thanks in the nine realms to [livejournal.com profile] tomomichi and [livejournal.com profile] gnine for being the most awesome and inspiring cheerleaders any writer could ask for - so glad I can share the Loki-ness with you guys :D

So I'm maybe halfway through a long post-Avengers thing, but right now it is all aaaaaangst, and also much of the fic I've found to read is aaaaaangst (if well-written, excellently done angst) and yes, this is a hazard of falling for a villain; but sometimes a girl just needs her fluff.

...And then I somehow found myself with 5K words of cat!Loki and a little kid that isn't really silly or much of a comedy at all, and isn't even crack because this could 100% happen in canon and yeah, I love writing supervillain gods, what can I say? (Except, um, oops?)

(This story was very indirectly inspired by Greensilver and Sisabet's amazing Avengers vid, "Glad You Came", which speaks to all of us who have found here a fandom where we weren't expecting one, and maybe hadn't realized how much one was missed.)
xparrot: (wormholes suck)
Came up with this yesterday mowing the lawn, and while it's not my personal headcanon, in some ways it makes so much sense. A touch of potential Loki redemptionista amidst Avengers team banter (which I now want to do more of because man they are adorable!)
