That's probably one of my favorite Biblical stories and you transported it into the Marvel universe beautifully. There are no words for this except for how tragic, yet so poignant this is - lovely, lovely work as always.

I cried so much... and I still am... when I read this chapter. I was somewhat crying during the other chapters too, but during this one the most. I have now read all of your Thor and The Avengers fanfictions like "Syrgja", "And We Fall, And We Rise", etc, but this one is making me cry. Another reason that I was crying was because I was listening to some sad music from the soundtrack of "Ender's Game", but this fanfic is so sad, yet so beautiful, as most things are. I can only hope that you write another fanfic that takes place after "Thor: The Dark World" that features Thor finding out that Loki is still alive, and then the Avengers find out, and then Loki becomes a little brother to them all. And I have no idea why I'm about to write this, but maybe you could do a fanfic that also takes place after "Thor: The Dark World" that features Loki turning into a cat- you know, like a black cat w/ emerald green eyes- and have Thor and the Avengers take care of him until he shows himself as Loki to them, and there can be a brother reunion, Avenger... happiness, or whatever, I don't really know what to say, but I just think that you could maybe do something like this. OH! I have another idea! I'm really sorry about this, and you're probably not even going to read this, but maybe you could do a fanfic about Loki and Thor as children playing pranks, etc. And hopefully my last suggestion is doing something where Frigga is still alive, and Loki finds her or something, I don't really know. And this is DEFINITELY going to be my last suggestion, but you could do something where Loki is a child and have some Frigga-Loki mother-son family love or whatever. I know that you could probably do this, but you don't have to, and I'm not telling/ordering you to, but I think that this could be a wonderful opportunity for you (oh my god I sound like a school counselor; sorry XD). And if you do write any of these, I'd appreciate it if you dedicated whichever ideas/stories/fanfics you write to 5TailedLokiKitten, just because I think that would be awesome. And I'm an eighth grade soon-to-be-ninth grade girl, and I usually don't talk/write like this but since you are an awesome and magnificent writer, I am. Sooooo... just please please PLEASE think about writing one of these. Thank you, and write on (that was stupid, I'll admit it)! P.S. Please try to read this review and make one of these stories. And if you do, my last suggestion would be to make that fanfic into a multi-chapter instead of a one-shot, but long one-shots are okay too, like your "in her garden grew hyacinths" one-shot. If you do write one of these, I will try to review that fanfic and for you to know it's me, I will end my review w/ my name; 5TailedLokiKitten. So, for the (hopefully) last time, thank you and write on!
3, 5TailedLokiKitten (I hope you know that "3" is a heart). P.S.S. I also want you to write one of these because there are few others like these online. Bye! (I know, I know, I'm annoying ;)

| marvelruinedmyspirit chapter 12 . 3/11/2014
You owe me a full box of tissues.
Just kidding, although it really made me cry. I read the full story today, and I loved it :)
I'm so going to read the other version of it in AO3 right now.
See you there!

This is by far the best story I've read. I have read both endings and i cried. I am amazed at the emotion behind it and how your portrayed the characters. I am still crying over the ending. Feels i got the feels for Loki and Thor.
| boasamishipper chapter 12 . 3/5/2014
Absolutely one of the best fanfics in this fandom. The writing was beautiful, Thor's mourning was absolutely heartbreaking, Loki was so...Loki, and I wanted to cry about every five seconds with this fic because it is just SO DAMN GOOD. And then when Loki thinks that Thor loved him more when he was dead, that just did me in. :( *sniffs* I think I wasted like a pack of tissues on this fic.
Loved this thing to death and back and will forever reread it. I MAY even put it on my favorites list. :)
Awesome job on this and I can't wait to read what you come up next.
Yours in Fanfiction,

Sad sad sad... this version is so sad too!
| Tricksterkat209 chapter 12 . 3/1/2014
You know what? I am done. I'll just try not to sob into my pillow and go to sleep. I thought it couldn't get any sadder but boy, was I wrong. The version on AO3 was bad enough but this? This just broke me. I'll go and look at some puppies now to feel less like someone punched a hole through my chest. Thanks, this fic didn't hurt at all. (I loved it but right now my feelings are sending mixed signals so I can't come up with any praise that would do it justice.)

I read this first in AO3. I cried. Shamelessly, in the middle of a bus while going to college. Strangely, though, I didn't care. I'm not an emotive person but I seem to lose it when it comes to your writing. You are honestly very talented and you know your way with words too well for your reader's good. We are bombarded with emotion I'm not certain anyone can handle without losing the ability to do anything other than reel. But I digress.
As I said, I read the AO3 ending first and felt the pang in my heart to see him die with only Jane in there to witness it. It's something raw and hurtful and just wrong, because he does not deserve it. It doesn't matter what he's done or if all the terrible things he did he did for a reason or just out of spite, it's something that just couldn't have happened. It's just too sad. No one deserves to hurt so much, in such agonizing silence trying to protect their loved ones from their thrice as death. His rationalization is too cruel, even more because there's reason for it.
He died, I watched two classes barely paying any attention to my teachers and game theory until I could go back home. And then I read this, in a bus. Does it ring a bell? I cried again, I suffered again, but with a different quality to it. It is still sad and hurtful but it's not as raw. It's hard to say which one is better or if that kind of statement makes any sense at all. I feel like I'm still overwhelmed by it and I don't know quite well what I will expect when we get to see Loki again on the big screen. I'll probably watch his eyes looking for hurt and death, and if I don't find it will it be any good?
| SigynDenning chapter 12 . 2/22/2014
I hate this story, I hate that you wrote this story, and I hate that it's so good I couldn't stop reading and torturing myself until the end. T.T
Seriously though. Wow. I can't say I loved this story... (maybe one day... but right now, it hurts too much... xD) But I can say, you are an amazing writer, and you will go far. No story has ever caused me this much emotion. And no story has been so good and so beautiful that I wish I'd never read it.
Good luck with your original fiction. I know you'll be great! :)

Brb crying... That was a fantastic fic. Ugh I can't even. It's just... you made me like Jane and Thor and Loki's love and just the ending ok bye I think I'm dead.
| stalrua chapter 12 . 2/12/2014
This broke my heart in the best and worst possible ways. I've read plenty of stories that made me sad, but this is the first one I've shed a tear for. Lovely, really.
| dabomb29 chapter 12 . 2/11/2014
What a beautiful fanfic! Your story is very well written and in great detail! You did a great job keeping everyone in character! It was beautiful story of bromance!
| ClockworkInsomniac chapter 4 . 2/6/2014
if im honest, i had to stop reading and start laughing when Jane looks outside the window and yells "Is that a supernova?"
I honestly though she was doing one of those "look over there! its X" jokes at first.
It was mentioned earlier on too. something like the rays coming to earth being similar to a supernova. And it was again, bizzarre.
Not that this story is bad or anything close to that, but you need to research your work a little better. For a start, our star cannot go Supernova. It can only go nova. Second, Novas are kind of a big deal. To put it in perspective if the sun went nova during a full-moon night, the people on the darkside of the earth would burn to death in moonlight. Well, i say burn to death. More be instantly vaporised.
So yes. Well done on the Loki personality. Bad bad work on the scientific accuracies.

Oh my god. I finished the ao3 one and just finished this one. The line that really killed me and opened the floodgates this chapter was when Jane told Loki "I didn't do it for him" "I did it for you". Like wowowow how about no. How about you don't kill me this way. Hello darkness my old friend. Goodbye I am gone.
