A/N:  There is something compelling about tormented characters, and so I had to do this.


Thor was hunting with Sif again.

Loki is better than Thor with a sword. He studies Fandral and Hogun when they spar, and he can mimic every move they make. Loki knows he is faster than they are, even if he doesn't use his powers.

When Loki woke up this morning and ran to Thor’s room, he was gone. He can't find Fandral, Hogun or Volstagg either, and he isn't  going to ask mother where they have gone. He hates being treated like an afterthought.

He pulls a black linen shirt over his head, digging in the wardrobe until he finds his green vest and leather trousers. Loki holds his sword belt in one hand, and then drops it back on the bed. He doesn’t want a sword; he needs something taller, imposing. He grabs the rune staff father made him, where it leans against the bedpost, and walks out.

He pauses at the doors to the audience chamber, listening to father’s voice. Father can fill every crevice with a whisper. Loki knows about whispers, he doesn’t need to shout to be heard.

When he reaches the bifrost he sits down and crosses his legs, laying the staff across his lap. He smiles across the bridge at Heimdall, who nods in return. Loki comes here often, to sit and stare into the dark, watching the worlds and stars beyond Asgard. But today he stares into the bifrost itself, watching the rainbow swirl and spark. It's the blue that fascinates him most, though he doesn’t know why. Loki presses one finger to the bridge, following the trail of a blue light. He shivers, but not with cold. When he pulls his finger away his nail is blue as blood without oxygen. Loki clenches his fist and sucks in his breath. He looks up at Heimdall, who hasn’t moved.

He clutches his staff tightly and stares out into space. He fixes his gaze on a small blue-green world. He wonders when Thor will return, and why he didn't wake Loki up so he could go with him.

Haven't seen the movie but have done a lot of Norse mythology via gaming, and this is awesome.

I also may have completely flailed around squeaking when I saw you'd written something new. ;-D

Oh..lol *blushes* I am glad you think it works.

I did post something random before this that Wombat seems to like too;)

If only I had a Loki icon
Ooo this was lovely! I'm really glad I decided to check over here to see if you'd written anything new.

Re: If only I had a Loki icon
Oh, thank you. I am a bit stunned that you check my LJ to see if I have written anything new.

I have so many Loki icons now...oh my. Tom Hiddleston is just mesmerizing and eloquent and funny (and I have a thing about Norse mythology, so there is that..lol).
