Thank you for this story. You are an amazing author.
All the time I was wondering what I would do in Jane's place. Holding back the tears was very hard.

Wow. I can't even...
I'm literally crying right now. This is amazing! There are so many feels that Loki has in this. You portray him and Jane really well. I've enjoyed reading so much!

"Please pretend that you are not angry with me..."
My new contender for the saddest sentence in all fiction, closely followed by "I'll take you home." " I already am".
Well, I just wept reading this story. I suppose with a title like this, it's no surprise how things ended, but still. I never expected to be so moved. So, I traipsed over to A3 to try the other ending, and pow! Just as good, and just as sad. I like (?) this one best though, for the closure the brothers have.
Again, a marvelous job in writing a nuanced Thor, with all his charms and faults. As much as I love Loki, you can't tell a good Loki story without doing a good job with Thor, and so few authors do. Thank you for taking the time to show us his struggles and changes, and develop his character.
And thank you for giving us a richly envisioned Loki, both trapped by and struggling to escape both his "fate" and the consequences of his actions. I liked how even in this strange purgatory, he works to shift and shape the universe, struggling to prepare and protect those he loves from the desperate danger only he knows is hunting them. (I figure that's what he's been doing ever since he encountered Thanos- struggling to escape and to warn Midgard and Asgard without tipping off Thanos. That's his good work.)
Loki grows as a character and a person, moving past the "childish need" to strike out at those who caused him pain, to a fully adult persona, not just ready to die to save others, but to endure the far worse torture of not dying, to suffer in a protracted fashion if it allows those he loves a chance at escape and a better life. Even with his defenses still up and his prickly nature still a factor, he manages to grow in all the right directions.
It's a painful hero's journey Loki is on, where death is still the resolution, but also a victory, freely chosen out of love. The king gives his life for his people. As he struggles with this sacrifice, and the surprising realization of his "human" need for his brother, you give us the fully realized moments of the love of centuries between these brothers and finally let that love carry Loki home in it's strong arms. Thank you.
I'll miss you if you're not writing fan fiction any longer, but wish you all the best in you other endeavors!
