Thor and Loki go on the run together post-Avengers, road-trip across Australia, and get family therapy. Then Loki is captured by S.H.I.E.L.D., and the Avengers assemble.


This is an episodic series that isn't designed to resolve completely. I'm marking it "complete" because I haven't written anything for it in a while, and all the major threads are left in places that feel satisfying and hopeful to me. I reserve the right to add to the series if I have an idea for a cute one-off a year from now!

You can email me at belmanoir at gmail dot com if you have any thoughts or questions about the series or about how I've posted them that you don't want to put in a comment. You can also leave a screened anonymous comment at my dreamwidth.

The stories can be read in the order they were written and posted (and that would probably be how I would read them). But some go back and add things to earlier parts of the story, so the series zig-zags a little. In internal chronological order, the stories are:

Lightning and what follows
If you love somebody, you should go ahead, tell 'em
Better run before you become yourself
Pain and Sundaes
Lifestyles of the rich and famous
I tell the truth, and I keep running
All this and forgiveness too

Out of the next four, "Always angry" spans the entire time frame of other three:

Liars and killers
I didn't do it, you lit the match for me
Always angry
The heartbreaking necessity of lying about reality and the heartbreaking impossibility of lying about it

Nothing left to trade
A little give and take
Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad
Incomprehensible gifts
Renewed in hope
But now I'm not alone
