Very nice story! I love the whole idea of Loki losing his memories and the Avengers 'meeting' the Loki of before everything went sideways. The interactions between the characters was really cool, especially since everything wasn't suddenly all hunky-dory. It was really interesting how disconnected and out of place Loki felt, how he realized that something was going on and no one was telling him, and how he still had residual feelings coming through despite his memory loss, which only confused him further.
And now Loki's about to go on a 'mission' with the Avengers! I can't wait to see how that turns out. And how Loki and Tony continue to get closer. That's bound to be very interesting!

Love how Loki isn't just automatically fitting. He's still got issues underneath the surface, and in a different place with a different brother, he must be feeling quite on edge. And hurray for Tony!

This is freakin' brilliant man! Wow! Just an amazing story right here.
I can't get over how awesome your characterization is, and I wish I had found this thing from the start so I could have left a proper review for each of your chapters. But you can be sure I'll be doing so for every one from here on out. This is just absolutely fantastic.
It's a brilliant concept, first off. At first glance, it might seem cliche, or convenient, having Loki lose his memory and giving an easy excuse for him to be redeemed, but you haven't at all chosen any easy path in the journey of that redemption. In fact, you've chosen an incredibly difficult path, with so much emotional depth and complexity, and you're executing it incredibly well, and at just the right pace. This story has everything, from humor, to action, to drama, but most of all, lying beneath the surface of all of it, it has incredible poignancy.
Loki is one of those characters who you long to see redeemed, because he isn't at all evil, he's just incredibly damaged and hurt, and those aspects have led into his being incredibly misguided. But you see in him equally so a capacity for good and heroism and so much more, and I think in this story, you're managing to really highlight that about him.
It was actually quite painful, and heartbreaking to read the scene when he first wakes up, and he's lost his memory, and he almost immediately senses Thor's presence, and has great concern for him, because it shows Loki's innate love and care for his brother, that is was always there, and continued to be there even after his fall. It just got all twisted and confused and buried in his feelings of betrayal and pain. But before all of that, he was a good brother, and incredibly loyal, etc...
What I also find really fascinating about this story is the exploration of Loki's feelings regarding the change in Thor. That isn't something you see explored a whole lot, but I think your portrayal of it is just perfect. He's conflicted, and confused. Not least of all because he doesn't remember this change occurring, but also because (and this is where it really gets interesting), he isn't used to it. And that just brings out a whole other layer of depth and complexity and, really, heartbreak, regarding Loki. He's used to Thor, to put it bluntly, treating him as though what he thinks and feels and wants doesn't really matter. You of course see this throughout the first half of the film "Thor", with Thor constantly talking down to Loki, dismissing him, etc... Along with everyone else. What's particularly sad about this, and in your portrayal of it, is Loki's sort of resignation to that treatment, and expectation of it, and how when it doesn't happen, when Thor actually treats him kindly and with regard, and pays actual attention to him, Loki is unnerved by it, and confused by it. He's so UNUSED to being treated like he actually matters, that it makes him uncomfortable when he is. That's tragic. And really just a brilliant and perceptive angle for you to approach this from.
The whole situation has this undercurrent of tragedy, really. Because Loki is also feeling the residual affects of his own feelings of anger and betrayal and hurt, but now without a context, without a memory of the reasons for WHY those feelings exist in him, and I can only imagine how very frightening that must be to him, and how that must leave him feeling incredibly lost. Just because his memories are gone doesn't mean all those years and years of gradual resentment and pain which built over the course of his lifetime, at the way he was regarded and treated in Asgard by everyone is just going to disappear. Of course, it was finding out he was really a frost giant which was sort of the straw that broke the camels back, and which just opened up this floodgate of emotion in him. But now he has no memory of any of it, and no real outlet for it then. It's a precarious and frightening situation.
And I just adore your interaction between Tony and Loki here. You've got Tony's voice down pat. I can hear Robert Downy Jr. with every line, haha. And the same for Loki. I can hear Tom Hiddleston clear as day. And the contrast between them is just perfect. Tony with his quirky, oddball sense of humor and tendency to make light of everything, and Loki with his extreme refinement and beautiful articulation and thoughtfulness. I loved the part where you write about Tony noticing the difference between Loki and Thor, how Loki actually really does seem princely and really majestic in the way he conducts and carries himself, where Thor is more brutish and warrior like, etc...
I just think this story rocks all kinds of awesome, and you can be sure I'll be following it and reviewing every chapter from here on out. I can't wait for you to continue and to see where this goes. I'm excited to see Loki helping the Avengers to battle whatever emergency is happening, and for them to get a glimps of just how powerful Loki really is. Awesome job and thank you so much for sharing your story and your talent with us!
