    Summary

    When Thor went storming into Jotunheim he was looking to start a fight, but accidently winds up a pawn in Odin and Laufey's plans for a permanent peace between the realms; namely, in exchange for the return of the Casket of Ancient Winters, Laufey is offering his firstborn child Loki, the Aesir-sized sorcerer, in marriage to Thor. Such a momentous decision is not to be taken lightly, so Odin sends Thor to live on Jotunheim - without Mjolnir - for a season with Loki, to get to know his prospective consort and to teach the wilful prince some diplomatic sense. Thor is horrified, his parents are insistent and no-one really knows what Loki is thinking, but he hasn't stopped smiling...
    Or, a jotun AU arranged marriage worldbuilding fic, featuring a confused Thor, a manipulative bastard Loki, Jotunheim politics, a slow burn developing relationship and a motley arrangement of characters from Marvel and myth.

    Summary

    Asgard and the Nine Realms knew mostly peace throughout Thor’s childhood. They had thousands of years unbroken by battle, with only the tales of past renown and great deeds to tide them over, filling their minds with dreams and hopes, with only hours spent in the training yards to sharpen their skills.

    But peace never lasted.

    Summary

    Loki wet his lips. He wanted to tell him, he wanted to say... everything. All he managed, however, was a single strangled sob before Thor had enfolded him completely, a hand cradling the base of Loki’s skull as he drew him close and tight, his silent cries embedded in the taut stretch of Thor’s throat.

    “Loki... Loki, what has happened? Tell me – are you in pain? Loki, Loki, speak to me, brother!”

    Loki’s lips shifted at the hot skin over Thor’s pulse and tried the words out, just to see how much they’d hurt, his tears searing him as he forced the truth free. “I’m not your brother,” he whispered to himself and the sound shattered against his teeth, muffled by the roar of Thor’s blood beating beneath his skin and the misery rolling from him in long, racking cries. Thor crushed him close, so tight that Loki’s head swam and he trembled, allowing himself the luxury of finally falling apart, knowing Thor would hold the world at bay for him, at least for a little while.

    My brother, he thought, mine...

    The One Where Loki discovers Thor's not his brother but the only person who can make him feel better is Thor himself.

    Summary

    There is something about tonight that loosens his tongue, makes the consequences seem unreal, a distant and intangible future swept away as though it were a dream.

    Before tonight, he has never dared to ask.
