"Brother, it is almost midnight," Thor said. "Can we please end this call now and speak more tomorrow?"
"Do you know I have actually read so many stories where I call you that in the throes of passion that the word itself has started to sound sexy to me now. Call me it again."
"Call you what? Brother?"
"Yes, yes! Say it again…"
"Again…" Loki said, breathlessly this time.
Thor paused a second and then in a low moan he said, "Brrotthher…"
The only sound after that was Loki breathing heavily on the other end of the line, and then suddenly he said, "I have to go," and hung up.
Thor chuckled to himself. Loki would not always have the last laugh.
As he settled into bed the sound of Loki's breath kept replaying in his mind. He wondered idly about his brothers intentions, drifted into a dozing sleep and had a dream of laying his hands on Loki and causing him to make those sounds again.
Thor had spent much of the day thinking about his brother, and at 10pm the next night the phone rang again.
"Thooorrr… The Midgardians, they think I cry all the time," Loki whined, audibly sniffing and wiping his nose.
"Brother, it is late. Must we have this conversation now?"
"It is important."
"No, it is not. I am hanging up."
Thor hung up the phone and sat on his bed, waiting. Just as expected, Loki appeared within seconds.
"Why did you end our conversation?" he demanded.
"Why do you keep sending me filthy stories and drawings?"
"Because it is funny."
"Loki… Why will you not just ask me for what you want, instead of this."
"I do not want anything from you," Loki said, suddenly defensive.
"I know that is not true or else you would not persist. If you want me to kiss you, you only have to ask, and I will."
Loki stood, dumbstruck for a moment and then stammered, "W-w-why do you think I would want to kiss you?"
"If you did not then why are the only stories you ever show me are ones where we are together?"
"I thought they would upset you. That you would find them disgusting."
"On the contrary," Thor said, "I have thought of doing the things described in those stories quite a lot recently."
"With me?" Loki asked, nervously.
"Yes. With you."
Loki paused a moment and then Thor said, "Would you like me to kiss you?"
Loki nodded apprehensively and Thor moved towards him.
"Do not be nervous, brother," Thor said, placing his hands on Loki's shoulders and leaning in to kiss him. Their lips were about to touch, hot breath on each other's faces, and suddenly Thor found himself holding nothing but fresh air as Loki vanished.
15 minutes later Thor received a text message that read 'Ha ha! U fell for my joke. As if I would kiss U. Pervert.'
Thor typed back slowly, 'When you are ready to act like an adult come back. Until then do not contact me again.'
"What do mean, act like an adult?" Loki said, appearing back in the room, as Thor knew he would.
"I mean when you stop running away. You have no reason to fear me brother. I will not hurt you, if you let me love you."
"Maybe I do not want you to love me," Loki blurted out, almost reflexively.
"We both know that is not true," Thor said. "If you want me, you can have me, but only if you say it."
"I… I…" Loki struggled to get the words out, and said quietly, "I want you."
"And you can have me," Thor replied, moving closer to him. He placed a hand on Loki's cheek, half expecting him to flinch away, then lent in and planted a gentle kiss on his lips. "That was not so bad, was it?"
Loki stepped back, his eyes wide like a rabbit caught in headlights, and vanished.
Not long after he received a text message that simply said, 'Sorry,' and Thor replied 'When you are ready, I will still be here.'
After 3 days of hearing nothing from Loki, Thor finally received an email containing a link to a story. Thor clicked on it, excepting it to be ridiculously dirty again, but was rather surprised when it was actually a sweet, romantic and very loving tale. Thor sighed as he finished it and wished he could figure out what on earth was going on in his brother's head. He got out his phone and sent Loki a text message that simply said, 'I miss you.'
Thor was surprised when he received no reply, and later that night, as he started to doze off in bed he felt the sheets moving as Loki clambered into the bed next to him and lay down with his back to Thor. Neither said anything, they simply slept, and when Thor woke the next morning Loki was gone.
It took a week of creeping into Thor's bed before Loki had turned round to face him. He stiffly accepted Thors hug and eventually fell asleep in his arms. Two weeks later and Loki let Thor kiss him again. It was better than Thor had dreamed it would be, but the way Loki pulled back was disconcerting.
"Loki," Thor asked, "You have done this before, haven't you?"
"Yes," Loki said. "Does that displease you?"
"Not at all, you just seem scared."
"It has not been like this before. It has always been quick and," Loki lowered his eyes, "not particularly pleasurable."
"Has someone hurt you, brother?" Thor asked, filled with horror at the idea
"No, no," Loki said. "It was never like that."
"Good," Thor said. "I would kill anyone who hurt you."
"Thank you," Loki said, burying his way into Thors arms. "You are far too nice to me."
"No, I am not," Thor said, smiling and kissing his forehead.
Steve sat in bed reading a book while Tony idly flicked TV channels. They both heard the muffled moan from the room next door and looked at each other, grinning. They jumped up and planted their ears against the wall. There was silence for a moment and then something thumped gently against the wall, followed by another a moan. Soon there was a regular rhythm pounding out and Steve giggled and covered his mouth.
"Sounds like someone's putting out at last," Tony said with a grin.
"What's it been now? 3 months?" Steve asked.
"I'm amazed Thor's balls haven't rotted off, the length of time Loki made him wait."
"Uh... Uh... Brother...Brother..." they heard Loki moan loudly, through the wall.
"Wow," Tony said, "I really have no idea if I should be turned on or disgusted by that."
"I think it's kinda hot," Steve said with a smile.
"Oh really?" Tony asked. "You like that, huh?"
Tony reached over and pulled Steve in for a passionate kiss, then said, "I bet I can last longer that Thor."
"Wanna find out?"
"I sure do."
Tony was wrong.
In the first light of dawn Thor watched Loki sleep, so relaxed, a slight smile ghosting over his lips, and he knew everything would be different now. Loki loved him and Thor loved him in return, but most importantly Loki had allowed himself to actually feel it for once. The fact that Loki was still here and had not vanished during the night spoke volumes.
Thor reached over and gently pushed back a stray strand of hair from Loki's forehead, then leant to kiss him gently on the corner of his mouth. He watched as his brother smiled in his sleep and then murmured, "Thor."
Loki stretched, sighed gently and then opened his eyes.
"Good morning," Thor said, beaming with happiness, but instead of smiling back Loki started looking around him with a vague expression of panic on his face.
"What time is it?" Loki asked, rubbing at his eyes.
"It is early," Thor said and then watched, dismayed, as Loki jumped out of bed and started picking up his clothes. "You are leaving?"
"Of course, I have a meeting with my associates today. I do not want to arrive in this disheveled state."
"You still intend to be a villain?"
"Do not be ridiculous Thor," Loki said, pulling his tunic over his head. "Your cock does not suddenly possess magical healing powers. You thought I would lay with you once-"
"Alright, three times, and everything would be change? That is incredibly naive of you, brother."
"Loki," Thor said, grabbing his wrist and turning him round, "I love you. Please, do not leave me now."
Loki frowned slightly, pulled his arm free from Thor's grasp and then lent over to kiss him.
"I may return later, if everything goes well," Loki said as he stood, and pulled his breeches on.
"Do you love me?" Thor asked.
Loki stopped in his tracks for a second, briefly flicking his eyes towards his brother, and then continued getting dressed.
"You cannot even say it can you? After what we did last night, you still cannot admit it."
"I am who I am, brother, and not even this can change that," he replied sadly. He picked up his boots and said, "Farewell."
Loki vanished, leaving Thor alone and wondering if his brother had really meant it when he said he would return.
Thor walked dejectedly into the kitchen.
"Morning," Tony said as he sat at the table, checking out the deeply pornographic and incredibly hot pictures Loki had sent him the day before, on his laptop.
"You look tired, Stark," Thor said, noting the dark smudges under his eyes.
"Well, it's hard to sleep when someone's going at it in the room next door half the night."
"You could hear?"
"I'm pretty sure half of New York could hear."
"I apologize," Thor said. "My brother is an exceptionally responsive lover."
Tony choked on his coffee and said, "Now that's something I could have done without hearing."
"I will ask him to be quiet next time."
"It's not just him who is noisy."
"Oh, sorry," Thor said and pulled a chair out, slumping down into it.
"What's going on?" Tony asked, "And where is Loki? I thought he'd be swanning around here like the cat that got the cream."
"He left. I thought it would be different, but he has left to meet with his associates."
"Oh," Tony replied, "Well ya know, he has a lot of issues. A damn good seeing to isn't going to fix everything."
"I have no idea what that means."
"I mean that sex isn't a good cure for mental illness."
"No, but I thought love would be," he said, and Tony had half a mind to laugh or poke fun at him, but he knew Thor was completely sincere with every word he was saying.
"It might," Tony said, "Just give him some time, OK?"
Thor sat at the kitchen table with his laptop open in front of him. He had been there all day, inbox open, waiting to see if Loki would send him a message. Every time an email arrived he smiled, opening it and hoped it would be changed to include something smutty, a little sign that Loki was thinking about him, but every email was normal.
"You should go do something fun rather than sitting and waiting," Tony said, when he came into the kitchen for yet more coffee and found Thor silently staring at his empty inbox. "Steve will spar with you I'm sure."
"I would rather wait," Thor said.
"What if he doesn't come back tonight?"
"Then I shall continue to wait."
Tony sighed as he poured out his coffee and then almost dropped the pot when Loki appeared out of thin air.
"Loki," Thor said with a smile, "You have returned!"
"I said I would, did I not?" he replied, flicking his cape backwards so he did not sit on it as he moved to a chair. "You think me a liar now?"
"Well…duh," Tony replied.
Loki frowned slightly and said, "Brother, I have brought you and your pet mortals a gift. A gesture of good will between... friends."
"Wait, let me guess… Is it porn?" Tony asked.
"No," Loki replied.
Loki raised one eyebrow at Tony and then continued, "My associates are planning an attack. I brought you the full details. Place. Time. How it will happen and how you can foil them."
"You would betray them?" Thor asked. "Why would you do that?"
"They insulted me!" Loki shouted, suddenly angry. "They will pay for that mistake."
"Why would they insult you, brother? I thought many of them feared you."
Loki sat silent for a second, his rage filled, scrunched up expression softened and then he dropped his head slightly.
"I accidentally sent…." The rest of the words were quiet mumbling.
"What was that?" Tony asked.
"I accidentally sent them a picture intended for Thor," Loki spat.
"Oh my god, you sent them one of those drawings?" Tony asked, laughing.
Loki sucked air in through his teeth, he put his elbow on his knee and put his forehead on his hand. He said, "It is far worse than that."
"But what could be worse than that?" Thor asked.
"Ooohhhh! Ooohhhh! Ooohhhh! You didn't?" Tony said excitedly, as Loki covered his face with his hands and nodded.
"I do not understand," Thor said.
"Your little brother here accidentally sent naked pictures of himself to… Who did you send them to?"
"Doom," Loki choked out, still covering his face with his hands.
Tony howled with laughter and pulled his phone from his pocket, "I gotta ring Steve, he's going to DIE when I tell him this!"
"No! I forbid you to tell anyone," Loki shouted as he jumped up from his seat. "If you do I will turn you into sentient undergarments and wear you every day!"
"Seriously, that's a price I'm willing to pay because this is too good not to share," Tony said and Loki remained silent, biting his lower lip in lieu of something to say back. Tony tapped on the screen of his cell phone and started to walk away. "Hey Steve! Listen, you aren't gonna believe what I just heard…"
"I will have my revenge, Stark!" Loki shouted after him.
The attack had gone exactly as Loki said it would and Doom and his army were defeated exactly as Loki said they could be. In honor of yet another great victory for the avengers, the city had decided to throw them a ticker tape parade.
On the day of the celebration Thor donned his finest armor and Loki busied himself making sure his brother looked perfect, straightening his cape to ensure it was free from creases and brushing it down with his hands. He took a step back and observed.
"How do I look?" Thor asked.
"Like a hero," Loki said, with a slight sigh.
"Are you sure you will not ride with us brother? It was your information that allowed us to defeat Doom's army."
"I hardly think a parade in honor of Earth's mightiest heroes is a place for a villain such as myself, Thor."
"You are a villain no longer."
Loki smiled, sighed loudly and said, "Ahhhh Brother, still so naive. Run along now, your chariot awaits."
Thor grinned, kissed Loki on the cheek and then bounded towards the bus.
"I will see you later, Loki!" he shouted back over his shoulder.
Loki waved gently, a wry grin spreading over his face and as the bus pulled away he folded his hands in front of himself.
"Indeed you will, brother. Indeed you will," he said and laughed.
Thor had never seen anything like it. He'd been to gatherings that thousands attended, but he had never seen such unrestrained joy. The paper rained down from the air like Jotunheim snow and it was beautiful.
"This is amazing!" Steve said, as he gripped the handrail of the open topped bus with one hand and waved with the other.
"Aye Captain. I wish Loki were here to witness it with us," Thor said.
"I'm sure he's lurking out there somewhere, watching."
"Steve!" Tony shouted, as he came bounding over. "You have to come see this! Some girl just flashed me from an office window!"
"What?" Steve asked, disentangling his wrist from Tony's hand and shooting him a disapproving look.
"I'm joking you idiot! Why do I need to look at some random woman, who was obviously a 34dd, when I have you?" Tony replied sweetly. He planted a kiss on Steve's cheek, not caring that the eyes of the whole city were upon them and then walked back over to the side of the bus where Bruce and Natasha stood.
Steve blushed slightly and looked down at the floor for a second. He noticed something strange. He picked up a piece of the paper.
"Hey, is this normal? This ticker tape has writing on it," Steve said, holding it up so he could read the small typeface. "Oh my god! Stop the parade! STOP THE PARADE!"
"What is the problem, Captain?" Thor asked when he saw Steve's panicked state. Steve didn't answer him, he simply pushed the piece of ticker tape into Thor's hand and ran down the stairs of the bus.
Thor held the paper up and read it.
The type said, 'Steve moaned and arched his back as Tony thrust into his body with the enormous red and gold-'
"LOKI!" Thor bellowed.
Loki stood in the crowd, tears of laughter running down his face, and a small boy plucked a piece of tape from his mothers hair as she held him aloft so he could see his heroes. The boy noticed the writing on the ticker tape and read it slowly, sounding out each word in his head. He didn't understand one of the words.
"Mommy?" the small boy asked, as his mother lowered him down to the ground, "What's a dildo?"
