Damn that is a great gap filler in the movies

So sad... And you're right - I never thought about Thor having no idea about what had happened to make Loki go mad in a matter of days. I really wish they had shown more of the grief their family went through, especially Thor, in either the end of the first movie, or in Avengers, or in Thor 2. I guess I can still hope for *some* sort of reconciliation in Thor 3? :)

Nice piece! Frigga and Odin should have known better than to let those misconceptions go on as long as they did. Loki was very unappreciated by all and figured he needed a way to show everyone he could be like Thor. He killed his true father in front of his adopted to cement his loyalty at the same time. Destroying Joutonheim was Loki killing the monster he belived to be inside him. I hate Sif-W3, and Heimdall. Their hands are just as dirty. None of them cared for Loki and they made it very obvious. There are a lot of subtle scenes that show this. They disobeyed Odin, and Frigga who backed Odin, and Loki who backed up their orders to not bring Thor back. They are the reason Loki sent the Destroyer. Heimdall actully tried to kill Loki They committed treason, but no one cared about that. Plus if Loki wanted kill Thor he would have had the Destroyer flames instead of hitting him. On top of that Loki never told the Destryer to kill Thor. He said make sure he doesn't return. I hate 'AssGuard' and their double standards.

Well, now in a soggy emotional wreck, so thanks for that I guess... :) Wow. Just a wrenching story all around. Really well written. Thank you.

I managed to hold my tears for most of the story but as I was nearing the end I... couldn't anymore. The way you described thier feelings, the way they reacted, the way they were trying to deal with Loki's death, it was all so believable and it hurt so much... Sure I could console myself with the knowledge that Loki's still alive, but... he's broken, and going to be even more, falling towards the darkest moments in his life (and that he was already in a pretty dark place even as he let go), becoming the villain... so there is still something to mourn for, the good life Loki had. But of course, his family doesn't even know he's alive so their mourning is genuine and it does feel like that too. And how.
My greatest consolation is my belief that it takes place in the same continuity as A Day in the Sun and its sequels, i.e. that Loki will get better once again. That everything will be better once again, maybe even better than it was before because now they are no secrets anymore.
But still, at this moment, in this fic, everything just hurts. And you see all the what-ifs, how it might have been all avoided but it's too late now.
(Unless someone writes a fanfic about it...)
Yeah I knew this fic would make me cry but I read it anyway and it didn't disappoint in the least, good job.

Oh goodness, so well done. Natural, not overblown, ugly human grief.

Oh… "I thought you dead." "And did you mourn?" How much more powerful those words are with this story behind them! Oh Loki… if only you knew…
I am SO glad you wrote this. I was only just realizing this myself, that Thor went down to earth with a family, hale and whole. A brother who loved him, who came to visit him out of love and to say goodbye (even if later you learned the visit was a lie). And then was killed by that same brother and returned to find a mad creature in his brother's form. That would be so… you'd think you were dreaming, or in a nightmare, or alternate reality, or something.
I loved this. So full of emotion, real words, real grief. Deep and heavy and yet you didn't go overboard with it so that it was unbelievable and melodramatic. It was real, which makes it all the more powerful.
Thank you for sharing!

This brought tears to my eyes. Very well done. A good description of grief.

This story made me cry! so well done :) I'm wondering if you would continue it through avengers? I've always liked stories where Loki wasn't so evil during the avengers movie - controlled or manipulated and I think it would make a great sequel to this. But, write only what you wish :)
