Asgaard, a Land full of gods,gods destined to be kings. Many had,had their reign fallen in battle defending the worlds surrounding them.
Wars were inevitable no matter where you were,people die,betrayal,love,loss,pain,forgiveness...redemption? The whole enchilada.
Thor,son of Odin had seen many wars in his time growing up hearing stories of his fathers victorys knowing one day he would be king and have many stories to share himself.
One he thought he would never have to tell would be this...the fall of his brother Loki,his innocent yet flawed kin betrayed by a lie, a victim of deceit by his fathers making.
"I am sorry brother,I am sorry what I did to you."
"Don't...no more lies."
Thor looked down ashamed,saddened by the monster he had created,leading him,bound and restrained through the grand city whispers and rumors erupting through,the events of Lokis' demise surely causing quite a stir.
"D-do you think,do you think he'll be mad?"
Thor knew his brother better than anyone,and yes okay they weren't blood and despite the mess he made on earth he still considered him family. Loki was scared,more scared of anything including learning the truth of his origin,or his betrayal. Odin would certainly punish him for his actions, how both were unsure.
"I will be by your side brother,whatever happens." he assured him,escorting him to the great hall.
The hall was overtaken by the massive throne which stood at the very end up high worthy of a king.
"LEAVE US." roared Odin who stood peering down at the his adopted Frost giant son so bitter and full of dissapoint. "Thor,leave us."
"Father please let me expl-" Loki interrupted,a feeling of dread washing over him.
Thor removed himself from his brothers grasp leaving them be "yes father."he bowed his head glancing worriedly over towards Loki. Obeying his father knowing not to get on his bad side.
Odin pulled himself up off his throne standing tall."Kneel before me"he commanded. Stepping down the stone steps "Do you have any idea what you've done,the shame you've put upon this family?"
Loki stared down at the floor on his knees almost instantly,not due to shame,this was all part of his game. "Why should I care,you don't control me anymore...I can do as I please."he hissed.
"The damage you have done is much greater than you know Loki,you are hunted and if they find you will be killed do you understand?"
Loki lightly chuckled "Let them come,I shall destroy them like I destroyed that pathetic excuse for a planet."
"Loki-"he shook his head,keeping his cool. ",do not make me do this son-"
"I AM NOT YOUR SON" he shrieked. "I HAVE no family."
Odin approached him slowly trying to reason with him,but he was stubborn unable to accept his mistake "Please,listen to me I am doing this for your own protection,we all want you to come home,please accept my apology."
"Why...so we can go back to the way it was,I hide away in the shadows,pretend to be part of your imaginary happy family? NEVER,I have changed in my exile old man,I will not stand back and let that coward rule..I am a KING if you saw me,those ants,they all feared me,they all kneeled before I had power,unlimited power and it felt brilliant." He continued to kneel glancing up at him now,picking himself up slowly his confindence growing steadily.
"Power does make you a king Loki,have you learnt nothing?"
He laughed at him "not from you clearly."
"It pains me to see you have fallen this far,if you could only see that what I did was to protect you,to shield you from this suffering,I never...I never meant to hurt you."
A loud bang erupted through the chamber,interuppting their interogation.
The room quaked sending father and son to their knees "What was that?" Odin wondered being quick to pick himself up.
One of the guards hurried through "Sir we are under attack,they're here...they've come for him what do we do?"
"Sound the alarm,seal the doors no one I repeat no one gets through these doors."
Loki pulled himself up realising now just how badly he had messed things up "Let me help,this is my doing,I will take full responsiblity."
"One day you shall my boy-"he turned hearing the enemy charge through the golden gates , "but now is not the time,you are hereby banished from Asgaard,to live with the mortals until you are worthy to sit upon my throne."
He recalled a time where Thor who out of selfishness attacked the frost giants.
The memory stabbing him repeatively in his mind until he could take no more"You are a coward and a fool... I surrender don't you see?" he hissed,clearly he would never accept him. "But fine,if you have a deathwish then so be it,do what you must,but mark my words I will have vengance." He saw the pain his fathers eyes as a pool of white light surrounded him.
He woke,stripped down to the bare bones back on earth laying naked and alone in the middle of a downtown country street, the ringing in his ears becoming agony.
The roar of a Harley Davidson pulled up beside him call it fate if you must but the man in question they had met before in very different circumstance.
Steve Rogers swung his leg round,climbing off the beast coming round to the man "Sir..are you alright,are you hurt?"
"No...no I..I don't-" he trembled pulling his knees up to his chest rocking back and forth on the graveled surface.
"Do you know where you are?"he asked him removing his jacket wrapping it round him mostly to cover him up.
He continued to shake unable to put words to an answer,turning to face his savior confusion washing over him as he sat crouched pulling on the leather "No."he muttered quietly and so innocently.
"Loki?" he gasped in horror taken back by this completely different side to him, I guess he got the punishment he deserved from his time back home,making his own mind about the current situation.
Steve ran his hand through his hair "Nothing erm..nevermind,just hold on a sec."he took his mobile out of his pocket dialling the one person he knew would be able to handle this "Stark it's me,I need your help how fast can you get to DC?" he asked keeping his eye on the new and not so improved Loki.
"Well suit up Stark because this is important...oh and erm bring a change a clothes"
45 minutes had past and in that time Loki remained in the same position,rocking back and forth silent as a mouse,making Steve extremly nervous.
"Finally,you took your time...erm look okay I need you to watch someone for me,I kinda just found him."
Tony removed the metal mask from his face raising an eyebrow "I assume you mean the naked dude on the ground."
"This is just temporary and trust me you are gonna love this."
Tony let out a sarcastic laugh "right...well come on then old man who is he?"
Loki suddenly aware of the new company stood up and turned slowly,putting his head to the side admiring the sight before him "hello"he chimed in a cheery tone.
Tony widened his eyes exchanging a look with Steve then back to Loki "oh you have got to be kidding me."
He had never gotten over what happened in New York,when Loki being the power hungry god he was destroyed the entire city without any feeling or remorse.
"Whats wrong with him?"
Steve sighed "I don't know,thats what I'm going to try find out,i need you to take him back to your place just for a while until I can contact Thor."
"NO...no way,get one of the others to do it,I'm out on vacation,i refuse to run a day care centre for the mentally insane."
He rolled his eyes "Tony this is not up for discussion,just do it please."
Loki smiled brightly watching with delight as the pair argued over him "This is fun."he beamed.
Tony raised an eyebrow at the former demi god,then turned to Steve "I am going to kill you."
