Hey! So this is my first Thor fic so I hope it's adequate. This is only the first chapter so yeah. Idk how long it will be.
"They all look the same to me."
Tony leveled Thor with a glare.
"They don't all look the same," he said indignantly.
"They are all gold bands; the only difference is the occasional silver one."
Tony scowled at the thunder-god and turned back to the glass case that contained a variety of wedding rings. He pointed to a small silver band with a large sparkling diamond on top of it.
"See, that one is different."
Thor raised an eyebrow, "I cannot see my brother wearing such a girly ring."
"I-what?" Tony sputtered. "Why would Loki be wearing a wedding ring?"
"Isn't that you invited me on this trip? So I could help you pick out a symbol of your coming together in holy matrimony?"
Tony stared at Thor speechless.
"I-Well no, I didn't invite you along to help me pick out a wedding ring; but that's beside the point. What I really want to know is how you even figured out the thought had crossed my mind."
"My friend you are not that difficult to figure out," Thor smiled well naturedly.
"No offense, big guy, but you aren't really known for your observation skills so I find that hard to believe," Tony grinned.
"Well, I might have over heard you and Steve talking," Thor mumbled.
"You know you can be as sly as Loki, sometimes," Tony's grin widened.
"I had to learn it from somewhere. If you didn't invite me along to help pick out a ring then why did you?" Thor questioned.
Tony's grin dropped and he ran a hand through his hair.
"Normally when a man wants to get married he asks the bride-to-be's father for his blessing…" he trailed off.
"Yes. And?" Thor titled his head to the side.
"And, well… Loki's father, your father, is a king. Of another plant. Where no human has ever set foot."
"Well technically Odin isn't-
"Of course, that doesn't matter. He's my brother and therefore Odin's son, too."
"Yes. So before I can even buy a ring I need Odin's blessing. And-well, I have no way of doing that; which is where you come in," Tony continued.
"You need me to help you get Odin's blessing," Thor concluded.
"Exactly," Tony smiled.
Thor thought for a moment.
"I don't think it would be too much trouble to bring you up with me. Although I can't promise what the All-Father will say to you about marrying Loki."
"…You have no idea how much I love you right now," Tony slung an arm around Thor's back.
"Anytime friend," Thor smiled and clapped Tony's back.
"Although I'm curious," Tony glanced at Thor, "Why are you so cool with me wanting to marry your little brother?"
Thor pursed his lips and turned his full attention to Tony.
"You make him happy. Something I've been unable to do for a long time. I have to admit, the first time I saw you two together, though, I wanted to strangle you."
"Yeah, I noticed the death glare I received."
"It is no small secret that you are a womanizer, Tony Stark."
"Ah. So you were afraid I was using him," Tony nodded.
"No. Loki does not let himself get used; quite the opposite, in fact."
"So you were afraid he was using me?" Tony sounded confused.
"No, I simply didn't want anyone corrupting my baby brother."
"You thought I was going to- Thor, your 'baby brother' used to torture people for fun," Tony dead panned.
"Be that as it may, he was still innocent in that way."
"…Thor you are wrong on so many levels. I can personally tell you that Loki is not innocent when it comes to sex."
"I really did not need to know that," Thor's face went blank. Tony chuckled at Thor's obvious discomfort and patted his back understandingly.
"Are you two going to stand there all day chatting, or are you going to buy something?" A store clerk all but yelled at Tony and Thor.
"Thanks, but no thanks. These rings are too cheap for my tastes anyway," Tony flicked a non-existent piece of dirt off his shirt. "I'll be taking my millions of dollars else-where," he motioned for Thor to follow him and they left the jewelry store.
"So what about you?" Tony asked Thor as they were leaving the building.
"What about me?" Thor asked while opening up the passenger door to Tony's car.
"You and Jane. You've been dating for what…three, four, years?"
"Off and on for four."
"So when are you going to pop the big question?" Tony grinned.
"I hadn't really thought of it," Thor looked out the window. Tony turned the engine on and pulled out of the parking lot.
"Really? Come on, Thor, seriously?" He asked in disbelief.
"I like things the way they are," Thor mumbled.
"The fact that I- Tony Stark, the eternal playboy, am willing to settle down, yet you, a very family oriented man, has not even thought about it, is very worrisome."
"I have thought about it, yes," Thor's brow furrowed, "but she is focused on her career and I'm constantly travelling between realms."
"Yeah, so? Loki is an ex-super villain that still sometimes has homicidal tendencies- but that has never stopped us," Tony commented dryly.
"Please tell me he hasn't killed anybody recently," Thor shut his eyes.
"No, no, not recently," Tony flippantly waved his hand.
"Okay good. I was worried I would have to have words with my brother," Thor let out a sigh of relief.
"Don't worry, he's been a good little God of mischief," Tony smirked. He let the subject drop, though, as much fun as Thor's discomfort was. He glanced up at the sky and scowled.
"Looks like it's going to rain."
Thor noticed the gathering clouds and smiled, "Indeed." Tony glanced at Thor and rolled his eyes; of course Thor would be happy about rain.
Not even five minutes later the sky opened up. Tony's grip tightened on the steering wheel as a clash of thunder sounded overhead.
"You know, this isn't really the best driving weather. Couldn't you control this or something?" Tony grimaced. Thor's eyebrows rose, as if suggesting a thunderstorm being bad was the most ridiculous thing he had ever heard. A bolt of lightning caught his attention and he smiled.
"My friend, thunderstorms are beautiful."
"Yeah, okay, but not when I'm dri-shit!" Something rattled under the hood of the car and it jerked to the left. Tony slammed on the brakes and tried to control the swerving. With careful navigation the car came to a halt without hitting anything. "…the fuck was that?" Tony's eyes were wide.
"This is why I hate technology," Thor grumbled. Tony ignored the comment and got out of the car. He was instantly soaked.
"Thor, turn my emergency lights on!" He yelled over the storm. Thor eyed the various buttons dubiously.
"And how do I do that?"
Tony grumbled under his breath and rushed back to the car.
"This button right here." Tony indicated to the big hazard button in the middle of the car. "This way if a car drives by they will know we are having problems."
"The road is empty, though," Thor said. Tony rolled his eyes and popped the hood of his car. With a grimace he entered the freezing rain again. As he opened the hood he noticed a small white sheet of paper lying on top of the engine. Tony quickly read the note before the rain could destroy it.
You used my tooth brush again-so I messed with your car.
Tony slowly crumpled the paper into a ball; his face blank. Stiffly he returned to the car, sat down, and shut the door. Thor looked at him questioningly and took the paper from his hand. He uncrumpled it and began to read; eyes widening.
"Remind me why I want to marry him." Tony said through gritted teeth. Thor tried to stop the small smile from appearing on his face.
"You should know by now that this is typical Loki," Thor chuckled. Tony looked at him incredulously.
"You find this funny?"
"I've had the wrath of Loki too many times to get mad about it anymore," Thor shrugged.
Tony shut his eyes and counted to ten. He had gotten used to Loki's wrath pretty quickly; if the scars from their first battles were anything to go by. Bruises, scars, and burns were great reminders-all because Loki wanted revenge against his brother (and eventually the Avengers, too). Even when Loki wasn't fighting them he was a vengeful little shit. For example; using his toothbrush resulted in a trashed car. Tony opened his eyes and sighed.
"Are you…calm?" Thor whispered.
"For the moment." Tony turned the key in the ignition. The car sputtered to life for a moment before quickly dying. He tried again. And again. Nothing. Tony banged his head on the steering wheel.
"Great. The car won't start."
"Can you not call someone on that device of yours?" Thor racked his brain for the name of the object.
"My cell phone? I could if I had it with me," Tony grunted.
"Where is it?"
"…Loki wanted to borrow it for the day." Tony watched a car go flying past and sighed again (he had been doing that a lot recently). "I guess we're stuck."
"Why? I have Mjöllnir, I could fly us home," Thor said. Tony stared at him as if he'd grown another head.
"What?" Thor asked. "Would you rather stay in this car for who-knows how long?"
"I, well, no." Tony grimaced and watched the rain hit the window. "Fine."
"Excellent," Thor smiled. He opened the door and stepped into the cold rain. He reached back in the car and grabbed Mjöllnir from under his seat. Metal armor ran down his arms and his red cape unfurled. Now standing drenched in the rain was the Prince of Asgard.
"Are you coming?" Thor grinned back at Tony. Tony eyed his team mate warily before stepping out of the car.
"Now how are we going to do this without making it awkward?" Tony looked Thor up and down. Thor faltered for a second.
"You could just crawl on my back," Thor suggested. Tony squinted his eyes through the rain out Thor.
"I guess I don't really have a choice do I?"
