ebonlock: (Loki)
First and foremost, if you haven't seen it yet go check out Iron Man 3 trailer and then join me in mourning the fact that we must wait until May of next year to see the full film. Also can I just say EXTREMIS! Also it looks pretty darned dark, I mean seriously grim...but then Extremis wasn't a happy fun storyline. Still, man...

Also while I'm thinking about it I've got a couple of Loki fic recs to share that kept me happily ensconced on my couch last week while I recovered from surgery.

The Other Gods by

After the end of the Avengers movie, Loki is captured. It is not particularly fun for him.

This is a seriously fucked up Loki, like batshit insane and loving it Loki. Well, loving it until SHIELD gets its less than tender hands on him and then things go down the rabbit hole. Think One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest with more torture and no lobotomies...yet. The story is a WIP which is frustrating 'cause it hasn't been updated since March and the author's left Loki dangling over the mental abyss.

The Many Doors of Níu Heimar by nixajane
In the weeks before Thor's coronation, Loki almost dies, not once, but twice. (An AU in which events conspire to keep Loki from the choices he made in Thor, a war is on the horizon and the chosen battlefield is Earth, and the Avengers assemble with an extra teammate and one less villain to fight).

So Loki finds out what he is under decidedly different circumstances and his story takes another road entirely, actually a pretty darn heroic but believable one. The Avengers come together over the discovery of Thor's Hammer rather than the Tesseract (well, ok, kind of both) and the big bad in this one aren't the Chitauri rather the Frost Giants. The characters ring beautifully true throughout, the author's Tony voice is DEAD ON. Fer realz. A fascinating AU. Also a WIP but the author is promising to get back to it soon.
