|Reviews for I heard you killed your only friend last year|

Interesting start. Steve is of course a sweetheart, but I am glad he was not naive. Just... a good person, which is what he is.
Very intrigued about Loki though. I can infer what happened to him, but the little tidbits when he was not completely aware were rather interesting. The terror of Steve getting Thor... just afraid to show weakness? Or something different?
Will have to continue reading... oh the hardship...
Thanks for sharing.

I quite liked this one. I think it was the last few sentences that caught my attention.

Loki has not made an entirely bad choice in coming to Steve out of all the Avengers.
| Katowisp chapter 1 . 1/8/2013
I really hope you write more of these two together, because I absolutely adore it.

This was so cool! I really like the idea of it, and how you made Steve kind, but not to a stupid degree. Excelent job and I'm off to read the continuation!

I liked this piece. A truly interesting interaction between Steve and Loki; I didn't feel it was slashy or shippy in any way, though I'm sure how you originally intended it. :)

Ahh, just perfect. Seriously, I'm starting to sound like a broken record here, but fudge, do I love the way you write Loki, and Steve, oh man, have you got his voice down pat too!
What I really love about this story too is how you, somehow, balance out an extremely serious and heavy situation with just the right blend of humor. And best of all, you make Loki funny without compromising him, or it being at his expense. He's humorous because of the things he says, and how he delivers them, not because of what's happening to him. I think a lot of people forget that Loki is supposed to be extremely witty and charming, that being one of the things Thor always remembers most fondly about him. How he made Thor laugh. So to see that brought out in this story was just a delight, and a pleasure to read. He's funny, all the while being incredibly demeaning and blatantly insulting, but that's part of what makes it so funny. Best of all, of course being too, that you know underneath it, he doesn't really MEAN any of it. It's really a defense mechanism of his. And Steve is really treating it as such, and I don't think he's doing that through any kind of actual comprehension or insight, but more just because his own character is so sort of naive and innocent, in a sense. He doesn't hit back at Loki except when Loki starts insulting his teammates, because he really doesn't have it in him to engage in that kind of mean-spirited banter.
What I also really love is just how cool Loki is. Like, really, he's just cool, even when he's wrong, or in a compromised position like this. Even when he gets pissed off, or loses control of his emotions for a moment, he always responds with some insanely smart, sharp comeback.
And underneath all of it, really, you infuse it with again the tragic aspects of Loki. I felt my heart break in two when he admits to Steve that he has no where to go and calls himself friendless. Even refers to himself as a "defeated monster". Loki's self-deprecation is both something you almost have to admire, for the courage it takes for him to understand the role he plays, and also realize is tragic, for the fact that he sees himself this way, and so assumes everyone else must too. Loki's resigned himself to this fate of being an outcast and a reject who no one will ever love or care about, and he really, truly believes that. And he accepts it and lives with it.
What I find amazing too about how you characterize Loki is that, in the same instance, you make him seem both incredibly fragile and vulnerable, and incredible strong and defiant. That's an amazing accomplishment, and one you should definitely be proud of as a writer.
And again, Loki's sense of humor is just stellar, where at the end he grins at Steve and leaves him with the thought that, if he feels like it, he may very well come back, and there's just something so almost sweet and innocent about the way he says it, even if it's given in a mock-threatening way.
I actually got a grin on my face when he shows up behind Steve, and Steve turns and finds him just standing there, smiling at him. That's Loki's forte of course, playing tricks on people and seeing their reactions. You capture the trickster, mischief maker element of Loki so incredibly well. He seems every inch the incarnation of the god of mischief under your pen.
Another fantastic piece. I really can't get enough of your awesome work.

Ahhh...Marvel!Loki. So stupid.
| Silvanesti chapter 1 . 8/17/2012
Oh, I liked this, it would have been great to read a continuation. Bravo!
| Ms. Halfway chapter 1 . 7/24/2012
Should write more about them. More like a ship, maybe? XXD
Well, I loved this one. Awesome work, your Loki is just perfect.

Loved the tension in this piece. Also liked how it only involved Steve and Loki.

"Fools," Steve heard him rasp. "Will crush you if- don't touch me, stay away-"
God..to read about him being like that.. :(
"It just didn't sit right. Evil or not. Leaving someone looking that battered untended. Steve sighed and trooped upstairs to go look for some medical supplies. And something for restraints. He wasn't a complete idiot."
No, hes not. ;) Just very swet and always trying to be fair. Thats what I really like about him. And how he is calling Loki "Mr Odinsson", god! XD
"Steve took a moment to wonder how he was supposed to release Loki and stay away at the same time."
You just cant dislike him. Its not possible! XD
"Steve'd once seen a cat given a bath. Loki was looking at him like that cat now. Indignant, furious, and vaguely betrayed."
Really, its not possible.. The way he thinks.. the way you write him..Perfect.
"Loki stared at him for a few moments before making a sharp, aborted sound that was probably something like a laugh, somewhere. "Fine. Good to know you're not as witless as you look, then."
Youre writing them both perfectly.. How he doesnt want his help but needs it. And how he cleary doesnt like it and shows that.
"I'll kill the vermin that attacked me. And then I will scour the wide universe for the means to scrub your worthless species out of existence." The latter half, Steve suspected, had been added for his benefit. It just didn't sound quite sharp enough to be sincere."
How Steve can hear that, wow. :)
"Does it please you?" he snarled, expression twisted to something ugly. "Does it entertain you, to ask me these things when you know well the answer? What do you want to hear, then? Yes, I am alone, I am friendless, there are three species that wish me dead of which yours is the least. There is nowhere I am welcome and no one I can turn to. But I am not weak. I have always been alone, and I have always made my own way, and I will do so again-" He wavered, and for a moment Steve genuinely thought he would fall.
THIS. was. perfect. SO perfect. seriously. How do you do that?
"The laugh through the glass was high and brittle and thin and awful. "Ah, yes! There's a notion. Reconcile with my dear brother. Beg his forgiveness for what I have done to him. Grovel on my knees for his protection. Ah, yes! How appealing! My brother, who muzzled me like a dog and yet spoke to me of kinship." Steve thought of the sadness with which Thor occasionally spoke of his brother, when he wasn't thinking about it, and wanted to wince"
Perfect. The way Loki thinks and talks about his brother and th way Steve saw it. Wow! :)
"Loki was grinning toothily at him, and a glance back in the containment cell showed it empty"
Perfect.. how Steve is talking with hin, how Loki is talking to Steve..Wow!
"Steve felt a little twinge of probably inappropriate amusement and wondered if that was the closest to a compliment Loki ever got. "Do my best," he said modestly. Loki shot him a look that was slightly suspicious and Steve didn't bother to try to look innocent. According to Tony he couldn't look anything else."
I Loved tht! XD not only that Steve is alweays looking like that but how Loki is acting around him.
I loved that. again. But I just do, Im sorry. ;)
