While Rose Tyler slept, the fallen God of Mischief did the complete opposite.
He crawled over to where the photo frame sat, and he didn't have to pick it up to know what it was of, and when this picture was taken. Finally, after so long of holding up the barriers the memories flooded out.
He was falling and falling and falling still. There was nothing to see, he was in the inky black of space where light had yet to reach. He was left alone to his thoughts of OdinFrostGiantsAdoptedThorAs gard. So he shut off his mind and let his body fall. He didn't mind if he didn't wake up again. He didn't mind if he died. He waited willingly for the quick burning of the sun, or whatever object he fell into.
But instead he hit the ground, soft green grass tickled his ears and as he went to move his body screamed in protest, the pain of impact was almost unbearable.
Then in front of his eyes was a woman, a Midgardian, with blonde hair and big brown eyes that had a soft look in them. She took one long look at Loki, before she reached for a phone. Loki had this gut feeling he was about to be handed over to the authorities, but he was shocked.
"Must've been a false alarm. I can't see anything. Nothing fell" the woman had said into it, before she picked up Loki and hauled him home with her.
He blinked quickly, shaking the thoughts and memories out of his head, and trying to keep the tears in his eyes. He wasn't going to let them overflow. He was not showing weakness.
Because Rose Tyler was not his weakness.
That's what he tried to make himself think, and he wondered that maybe if he lied about it enough it would come true.
Then the room in front of him was gone and he was back in a memory, unable to stop the barrage of memories replaying themselves.
"Who are you?"
"I am Loki. I'm not from here"
"Well that's obvious considering you fell from the sky"
"Well I'm Rose Tyler. I don't normally pick up aliens and not take them into custody like I'm supposed to, you're kinda a one off thing"
Loki gritted his teeth and yelled at himself "Stop this. Stop bringing these back up" he snarled, a lone tear ran down his face.
He reached over to pick up the picture, after spending so long looking at it, sitting there, staring at him and taunting him about what everything used to be like.
He would've smiled at the picture, if he didn't remember the aftermath.
"Come on Loki! Just one picture! It's a holiday!" Rose had begged and pleaded from their hotel room, they were staying the night in a small ski resort, and snow fell everywhere outside.
"No honestly Rose. I can't go outside for that long" he said, he hadn't told her he was a Frost Giant; he hadn't told her he was a monster.
Rose frowned "It will only be for a few minutes. Please! Then we can leave. Just one photo!"
Loki groaned. The things he would do for this woman, his saviour, his Bad Wolf and his alone. "Fine"
Rose jumped with glee and she ran outside, telling him to hurry his skinny, god ass up.
When Loki got outside Rose was talking to a stranger, asking him to take a photo of the two of them.
Loki had taken major precautions, completely covered by woollen clothes, so no part of his skin would be touched by the cool snow, so he wouldn't change his form. Of course it happened anyway.
Rose pulled off his beanie innocently, and they smiled for the camera. Loki was terrified and he ran to the car, and unlocked it with his magic and he sat and waited.
He ripped off the gloves and saw his hands slowly tinge blue. He hadn't even been in the snow for long, but he had underestimated the small white fluffy snow falling from the sky, like ash. He looked at himself in the rear-view mirror and Rose walked over to the car.
No. That was not true. The reflection was lying to him. It had to be. It wasn't true, but of course it was. Not only had his hands changed, so had the rest of him. He needed to warm up, and warm up fast. There was a way to get warm quickly, involving Rose, but of course that would never happen, they were just friends.
Rose had frowned when she opened the door and got into the car, and she had reached out to touch Loki's face.
"Don't." Loki had said hollowly "Don't touch me. It will burn you."
"Explain?" Rose had said, her voice tinged with a soft anger.
"I am not an Asgardian, I was adopted. I am a Frost Giant. I am a monster." He whispered, as a tear rolled down his cheek.
"You're not a monster." Rose soothed "I've seen real monsters, I've fought them, and I've helped ended their terror. I can tell you, you're not a monster"
"You're not a monster"
They were the words that Loki would replay every minute of the day stuck in this stupid Midgardian cell, waiting for Thor and waiting for Odin to get him, but they wouldn't. Thor wanted to, but the All-Father wouldn't allow it. This was Loki's punishment. To be treated like an animal in the zoo. To be observed through a cage and treated like a specimen.
He can't remember when he fell asleep.
When he woke he saw Rose sitting outside his cage "I was waiting for you to wake up" she said "I see you enjoyed the picture" she motioned towards the photo frame that was in Loki's arms
Loki sat there silently, and wiped dried tears from his face. "Hold yourself together. It's just Rose" his subconscious told him.
She was much more then 'just Rose'. She was his Rose, his Bad Wolf and his woman of the stars and only his. Well she was only his, but then she had left with barely any goodbye to jump through the stars to get to her Doctor. That's what she was always doing. Jumping through the stars, it was in her blood, transfused was star dust and galaxies.
"Stop crying you" Rose teased "You're meant to be a God" she laughed, her tongue poked through her teeth.
Loki wasn't even aware of the tears streaming down his cheeks until Rose had pointed it out "I can't."
"I'm sure you can. Just stop thinking of whatever makes you cry" she said, unaware of why he was crying
"How can I stop thinking of it when it's standing in the same room as me, telling me to stop crying" Loki smirked sadly at the look of bewilderment on Rose's face "You weren't expecting that were you Rose Tyler? You weren't expecting yourself to be the source of tears of a God. Just like you were the source of tears for the Doctor. Did you leave him? To jump through the stars, just to get to me?" he said, acid coated his voice at the end of his sentence.
"I came because I was asked to." Rose said, tears welling up in her eyes, as she stormed out of the room and went to get her dimension cannon.
She shot off to the first place she could come across. A place of large gold buildings and a bridge made of rainbow that was broken at the end.
A/N: God I kinda slacked off writing this fic but yay new chapter. Also I don't even know. I don't plan chapters that much.
Reviews make me happy!
I'm all up for criticism and I think I need that
