Shadow Plays by dreamlittleyo, thor/loki, NSFW, time loop, dub con, 24.4k
    In which Thor lives a single day more times than he can count, and Loki doesn't know how to fix it.
    Chapters 1-7: I'd been trying to hold off on this fic until it was finished, especially since it was at 7 out of 8 parts at the time of this rec, because I knew it would be one I loved, but... well, I caved. I had to read it now! After bringing Loki back to Asgard, Thor finds himself living the same day over and over, and HOLY CRAP DO WANT DO WANT DO WANT. I think I chose well, in reading it at this point, for it ends on a cliffhanger (as it must), but not one I can't live without... yet I still get the fun of anticipating the next chapter! And I do love that feeling, that sense of anxiousness and looking forward to what comes next, knowing that there will still be something good for me to read whenever the next part is posted. At the same time, of course, oh I want more of it now! All the more so because this fic does pretty much absolutely everything I want in it.

The idea of trapping Thor in an endlessly repeated day is fascinating, the author is fantastic at those first few days when he tries everything he can think of to fix what's going wrong, to fix the terrible end to the day, to stop seeing that horrible scene playing out again and again. It's fantastic to watch him try so many different things, to go to different people, and to try to explain--it's not done in terribly much detail, because this is a fic that focuses on the Thor/Loki relationship, so instead those scenes are given the actual pagetime, but it's not less satisfying for it. Watching the different ways Thor explains what's happening to Loki, watching the different tactics Loki takes to solve the problem, the fantastic use of magic woven around the scenes, even as the heart of the matter is on Thor's building frustration and erosion of his restraint on how much he wants his brother.

Because that's where the real heart of this fic is and, oh, it's so good. The characterization is so sharp and perfect, this Loki is so poisonous and angry, so cutting and cruel. And this Thor is trying to be patient because he hurts for his brother, because he longs for them to be close again, but Thor is not a gentle soul and that's something I was just talking about earlier in the day, before picking this fic up, that Thor is many good qualities, but he is also terrifying anger and raw power and dangerous. Thor has always gone after what he wanted, so when he holds himself back on the one thing he wants, when that control finally snaps, it's not nice, and, that was the best thing. The author strikes that perfect balance with both of these characters, doing a gorgeous job of wearing down the distance between them in their relationship, and building something almost like trust between them again.

The fic also managed to surprise me at points--I was so certain I knew which way this fic was going, but then, nope, I was totally off! And I love when fic can surprise me, when it makes perfect sense, and gives me that jolt of adrenaline that I so often seek in fic, that zinging moment where I practically have to shake myself and go back to reread the paragraph I just finished because my brain is either spinning out where I think this is all going next or because I'm too excited to get to the next line. Plus, oh, the sex is... it's not nice, it's definitely on the far side of dub-con, but Loki is clearly aroused by it, and it's meant to be rough and angry, which makes it all the hotter for me, in this author's hands. So, basically, a fantastic plot, stunning characterization, lovely writing, and super hot sexytimes. Goddammit, I need a new one of these, like, every day!
    Chapters 8: I have been waiting for this final chapter, because this is one of the best fics I've read in this fandom and I love it dearly and there was only one more chapter to go and I desperately wanted to know how it was going to end! And I love the author for the delicate balance achieved here, for the ending that didn't entirely break my heart, but didn't pull its punches, either. The emotional resolution of Thor and Loki's relationship is what it had to be, it was satisfying when considering what they could realistically have given the circumstances they find themselves in here, and it definitely got my heart in my throat a little when they met up again. Because Loki is complicated and Thor loves him but understands that Loki's complicated and, oh, this Thor characterization is so good for me, it's really well done (as is Loki), that difficult balance between respecting Loki, but also how Thor is not a patient sort of person--SO GOOD. And really good Thor characterization is actually sort of rare in this fandom, so I treasure it and hold it close and love it when I find it! All of that, plus really excellent sex, which was super hot and perfectly characterized, the kind of sex scene that's also about insight into the characters and their relationship and their feelings for each other in that moment. Just. Best author. Bless.

Winter and Spring by Sinclair_Spirits, thor/loki, NSFW, some dub con aspects, some violence, jotunn!loki, arranged marriage, 62.5k wip
    Loki is given to Thor by his brother as a ploy to gain Asgard's army. Much political scheming and conspiracies ensue as Loki finally finds his place in life and in Thor's heart.
    Chapters 1-10: THIS FIC. I do not know how I am going to be able to describe this fic without either going completely off the rails about it or keyboard mashing my way through it or settling for a description that does not quite feel like enough. When I first read the summary of this fic--"Loki as Daenerys and Thor as Drogo. Loki is given to Thor by his brother as a ploy to gain Asgard's army. Much political scheming and conspiracies ensue as Loki finally finds his place in life and in Thor's heart."--I said, yes, I am going to read that because that sounds AMAZING and maybe a little hilarious. I was pleased that the writing seemed to be really solid--there are a lot of typos and a few misspellings, but otherwise the writing is clean, smooth, and flows very well. But mostly I was just rolling around in the utter deliciousness of an AU politically arranged marriage that was super super tasty!

I'm not sure precisely where that changed, possibly around the third or fourth chapter, when the author wisely didn't try to make the fic stick strictly to the A Song of Fire and Ice fusion, instead it wound its way into its own plot and widening scope of events these characters went through. The Loki we see in the beginning is young and far more naive than the one we know, because he's so much younger and his circumstances were different, but he grows older and becomes more cunning and becomes more and more the Loki we know from canon. The author does a gorgeous job of making him so interesting, so engaging, and building towards canon!Loki while also building up the Thor/Loki relationship, with Thor falling ever further in love with his husband, while Loki is so much more complicated. The author also does an amazing job of showing the political side of this union, of the incredibly fine line Loki has to walk, with all the pressure that's placed on him to be one thing or another. The author does an amazing job of working in the characters around Thor and Loki, so that their motivations all further make the plot that much more complicated! Loki's brother wants his throne back, Thor just wants to be with Loki, Odin is hard as hell to read, the other Asgardians are a constant pressure on Loki, and on and on and on.

I love the worldbuilding in this fic, I love that it sucked me right into the plot and the political machinations almost as much as it sucked me into the Thor/Loki relationship. It made me want to read every single arranged marriage fic that exists for this fandom because it hit me so perfectly on-target. It's still a work in progress, but it's almost 50k at least! And the only downside is that, augh, I don't know if I can wait for updates between chapters, not with how badly I need to know how this turns out. *claws at face* But it's totally worth reading what's here, I think it might just be one of my favorites in this fandom forever.
    Chapters 11: Ahhhh, this fic. I know it wasn't that long ago that the author uploaded it to AO3 or posted the previous chapters, but some part of me had feared that I would never read more of it, which would have been terrible, because it's one of my very favorite fics in this fandom. And I love what this chapter of it accomplished! The parallels drawn between Loki and Sif, as she becomes his tutor now, are gorgeously done, the way they're not precisely friends, they way they still grate on each other a bit, but also there's a mutual respect that actually serves them both well. It's a fantastic way to draw Loki's character out more here, to make things first entangled and flesh the world out more, especially when contrasted against his scenes with Helblindi and the scheming that goes on around them. As much as the Thor and Loki relationship is definitely my favorite part of the story, seeing Loki interact with other characters, the way his acerbic and cutting comments lash out occasionally, even if just in his thought sometimes, all of it is so good and so well plotted and well paced.

Gold Hair and Lightning by blacktofade, thor/loki, NSFW, pregnant!loki, in heat!loki, dub-con, abuse issues, 17k
    After the movie Loki is retrieved, but Odin declares he will either submit to his conditions or be exiled as mortal. The conditions are that Loki must marry Thor and bear his children. Thor agrees, not wanting to lose his brother, as does Loki, eventually, deep down wanting nothing more than the love and acceptance of his family (though he doesn’t believe he’ll ever get it). Thor is not told of Loki’s heritage or why he can bear children and assumes it to be something to do with his sorcery.
    I find myself unsure of how to write a rec for this fic, other than to flail my hands in random patterns and make keyboard mashings. It was one of those fics where I curled up in bed while I read it and I didn't want to get up afterwards, because I'd sunk into the story and the lovely writing and all the intense feelings it was stirring up in me. And yet it's difficult to explain why, because the summary sounds like it should be straight out of a romance novel--Loki is forced into a relationship with Thor and doesn't understand that he can't become pregnant until he goes through his first heat cycle.--and a lot of the story elements here are pretty much straight out of such, but I didn't find myself enjoying this on an ironic level.

I enjoyed this on a genuine level, where Loki's constant simmering anger that he bites back, Thor's well-meaning enthusiasm if unintentionally cruel lack of noticing the finer details, the way Loki hates so much around him and yet you can feel his connection and love for them as well, the balance between love and anger he has for Thor here, it's so in that sweet spot for me, much like Loki in the canon itself. It's in the way Thor wants Loki, desires him for more than just bearing a child, the way he takes Loki again and again, how there is an element of selfishness there, but he's such a force of good and caring and holding back when he says he will, it's both super hot and wrenches my heart terribly. And it's in the tropes of it--an arranged relationship that has real feelings, the way Thor freely touches Loki whenever he wants, the intensity and passion of their coupling, the frequency of it, all of it works for warrior gods. But it's also about Loki being caged and there is a very genuine sense of that here, how this is a punishment for him in a way that others never seem to understand, and the author does a beautiful portrayal of how trapped he feels, and that is a lot of what stirred up my reactions to this piece, because I just have so many goddamned feels when it comes to Loki. And even the ending is... exactly what needed to happen, I think. A gorgeous, gorgeous fic all the way around.

Spoils of War by Fickle_Obsessions, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, war prize!loki, dub con, rough sex, 9.8k
    A Jotunheim born-and-raised Loki becomes Thor's prize after a war with the frost giants. Thor is thoroughly smitten, which unfortunately means he's not too keen to take the slow route. No, the path Thor take has a lot more hair pulling and it's Loki doing the pulling.
    I was intrigued by this fic as soon as I saw it was posted tonight, curious about a Jotun born-and-raised!Loki that becomes Thor's prize after a war with the Frost Giants. Fic like that always has the potential to go wrong, but, oh, this fic was so good. The author warns ahead of time what you're getting into here--so those who aren't into dub con should stay away--but also points out that this is a Thor that never went to Midgard to learn to grow up, which fits so well with the character we saw early in the Thor movie. Headstrong and stubborn and just taking what he wanted, but not without his charms and a caring heart and a good nature. But, oh, also this Loki. This sharp, cutting Loki who is brilliant and is beginning to be won over by this brute, but will never admit it, which beautifully keeps the spirit of their relationship. This is one of those fics that hits me where I live, the possessiveness and slightly rough sex that is super hot sexytimes and barbed banter and biting and hair pulling and intense fucking that takes its time and little details about the background woven into the writing and, ugh, just SO GOOD. This Loki is SO GOOD, so proud and difficult and ready to fight, which is actually the point, that's part of what turns Thor on and, oh, I love this Thor dearly, too, and, oh, what I wouldn't do for more in this universe. p.s. did I mention the super excellent sexytimes? Because they were pretty excellent. But, really, the whole thing is SO SATISFYING.

Be Calm, Brother by Desade, thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, some bondage, 2k
    "Be calm, brother," Thor whispered into Loki's ear, breathing in the familiar scent of sweat, magic and menace Loki always seemed to exude. "Be still. Hear me, if you would."
    The fanart attached to this image is one of my favorites, so I was greatly intrigued by a fic based on it! And, boy, did this fic not disappoint. It hit pretty much every button I had, with the light power dynamic kink and yet genuine love, genuine desire for this on both sides. It's a tricky line to walk (and those who eschew dub-con will likely want to avoid this one as well) but when done right? Most satisfying smutfics in the fandom for me. Because it's all about how much Thor loves his brother, how he can see through Loki's lies to the truth of him, how Thor wants him to come home, how Thor means to have him and will. It is super fucking hot, with Thor pressed against his back, one hand on his throat, whispering in his ear about memories that Loki didn't realize he remembered, how Thor would have had him a long time ago if Loki hadn't left, but he will have him now. How it's about breaking through Loki's so much of anger, to get him to admit that he wants this, and how it's about the really good sex. The author walks that delicate balance perfectly for me and, sweet jesus, this was hot as fuck, especially when Thor's control finally frays and fucks into his brother, marking him. Yes. Yes, give me this forever.

Make Me by Arkada, thor/loki, NSFW, dub-con, rough sex, bondage, bdsm, loki in chains, 4k
    Thor loves Loki, but there is only one way Loki will allow him to show it.
    I am not going to be able to write the rec I want to write for this fic because... just... holy hell, this fic was practically tailored to be everything I wanted after the latest TV spot dealing with Loki in chains. It was all about Thor understanding him, loving him, and being angry with him, while Loki only allows Thor to love him in this angry way. It's brilliant at everything it did, but most especially with the bdsm aspect because Loki's desperation for the attention of Thor's firm hand and the way he wants to be punished, the way he wants to be forced into this, so that he can have it without admitting that he wants it, but Thor is the perfect dom for him, because he pulls more out of Loki than he expects, his "So be it." when Loki won't give up anything any other way is perfect, because it blends together just how much Thor genuinely loves him, loves him with such an honesty that only Thor can do, even as Thor is angry with him and rough with him. Which is what Loki wants. And, oh, when Thor went that one step further, because he's no mere puppet for Loki to pluck the strings of, when he pulled more out of Loki and made him admit certain things, that was just. That was, not exaggerating, everything I wanted.

But that's all the more true becasue it came with some blisteringly hot sex, the kind that was just about painful and had me unable to start a new fic after I'd finished this one. I genuinely had to take a break after I finished this because it was so intense and so hot. This fic does everything right, that it's just as much about Thor here, how he crowds everything else out of Loki in these moments, how that sheer weight and presence of the character is absolutely incredible. It does justice to how sharp and bitter and twisted Loki is now, it doesn't flinch away from how viciously angry things are between them, even as it's so good and there's so much room for love here because Thor holds that firmly between them. This is a fic that might have rough sex, but it shows why Thor is such a good dom, because he loves so genuinely and he cares about what Loki wants, but doesn't just follow along behind. And that's why Loki responds to him. Plus, no, seriously, that sex was ridiculously hot, fuck.

A Symbol of Peace by bellacatbee, thor/loki, NSFW, dub-con, prize!loki, somewhat underage, 3.5k
    Loki is the symbol of peace. He will be ravished by Thor in place of his kingdom. Only Loki does not want to be a symbol. An Alternate Universe where Loki is given to Thor to keep the peace between their homelands.
    One of the best things about getting into a fandom like Thor's fandom is that you can read a summary like, Loki is the symbol of peace. He will be ravished by Thor in place of his kingdom. Only Loki does not want to be a symbol. An Alternate Universe where Loki is given to Thor to keep the peace between their homelands. and actually have a pretty decent chance of getting a good fic out of it. BECAUSE I LOVE SHIT LIKE THIS, IT IS DELICIOUS CANDY TO ME. The author does a lovely job of selling it, especially getting into Loki's character, who is manipulative, afraid, not entirely good, but still with real feelings and so much potential for something good, so much that's not poisoned about him. Sure, I love Loki being given to Thor, who totally wants to ravish him in that way that Thor totally would, but I think I enjoyed it even more for actual Loki characterization, a look at how he would react to being in a different set of circumstances. But, yeah, okay, it's also pretty hot.

Custom by lies_d, thor/loki, NSFW, dub con/non con, jotunn!loki, 2.3k
    Norsekink prompt based on ric951's fanart. Thor and other highly-ranked noble Aesir have to prove their manhood by bedding a member of another race, the most difficult - and worthy - being a Jotun. Thor sets his sights on the sorcerous Prince of Jotunheim
    I was a little wary of this prompt--Thor and other highly-ranked noble Aesir have to prove their manhood by bedding a member of another race, the most difficult - and worthy - being a Jotun. Thor sets his sights on the sorcerous Prince of Jotunheim--because I usually want slightly different AUs with Jotun!Loki, but I liked a lot of the author's other fics, so I gave this one a shot, too. I wound up liking it a lot more than I would have thought! The author takes a delicate approach with Loki's characterization, which could have gone too far on the non-con scale for me, but instead there's something almost intellectual about him here, there's an undercurrent of cultural acceptance of fighting and then fucking your prize, and somehow that made the difference to me. It's still not going to be for those who don't care for non-con, but the genuine attraction and the way Thor just sort of fell for him, it made all the difference to me, so I ended up loving this one.

untitled by rayemars [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW with NSFW artwork, jotunn!loki, dub con/non con, war prize!loki, 3.8k
    The sorcerer turned to face him, a half-smirk on his face. "If you wished to strip me of my gold by hand, you should have done it in public. It would have made a better statement."
    I feel like I waited forever for this fic and then FINALLY IT WAS HERE and, oh, wow, that's gorgeous. kisu-no-hi's (nsfw) artwork of wartrophy!Loki is one of the most stunning pieces that the fandom has ever produced and the fic that goes along with it absolutely does it justice. There's such a gorgeous quality to everything here, the writing captures the feeling of the art so well, you could practically feel it right along with them and it was easy to keep the art in my mind's eye as I read. But also, oh, this setting is amazing. A war between Asgard and Jotunheim, even as it's just in the background, is so very well done and the toll it's taking on all of them and the different circumstances that lets these characters meet!

Which is why this is a different dynamic from usual, where this is a Jotunn!Loki who was raised in this Realm, who is still so very Loki in the proud, manipulative, ruthless, cunning, brilliant way he has. For all that he's a wartrophy here, the fic never lets you forget that he was a powerful opponent that it took the mighty Thor to bring down and, even then, it wasn't without heavy cost. This is reflected in the banter between them, that edge of hostility underneath the calm. And, oh, the sex was beautiful, for both of them, with Thor taking what he wanted because this person in front of him was gorgeous and Thor wanted him, had won him. This Loki submits but isn't broken and, oh, Loki trying so valiently not to react as Thor touched him, worked him open and began to fuck him, trying to keep that detached calm he's so good at, that was just all the hotter, because that's Loki for you. This was so, so good for me, ahhhh.

Bedding the Wolf by leonidaslion, thor/loki + implied background thor/sif, NSFW, dub-con edging on non-con, 13.4k
    If Sif thinks she's going to get away with wedding Loki's idiot brother, then she's sorely mistaken...

OR

Thor is smarter than Loki thinks he is...

    Note: I have recommended this fic more than once, as it's one of my absolute favorite fics, one that hits my buttons perfectely. And I felt the need to talk about it a lot. :D
    Rec #1: I will warn ahead of time that this fic has a lot of dark shades, that the warnings should definitely be paid attention to, along with a strong non-con warning. I'm recommending it anyway because this is Thor and Loki, where there is a lot of anger and these are Norse gods and they are rough and posessive and this is Loki who doesn't make things easy and this is Thor who smashes his way through so many things, even when there's just so much underneath all of it. In some ways, it's heartbreaking to read, because of the way Loki believes so little in himself in the eyes of others, how he believes everything he hears are lies and heartbreaking all the more because he's not always wrong. It's heartbreaking how much Thor loves him but can't get Loki to see. But this fic is all about Thor just smashing through that, by claiming Loki and pushing him down and he will have Loki in his bed, no matter how Loki fights him on it. It's not for those who have a strong dislike of non-con, but it can appeal to those who find interest in this sort of struggle, especially when it's layered on top of Loki so desperately wanting Thor, on top of how these two desperately need each other. In some ways, it's one long sex scene, but it's all about characterization and the super hot sexytimes, which hit my kink buttons something fierce. And it's so incredibly satisfying that Thor doesn't give up what he's set his mind on here, it's so incredibly satisfying to see their misunderstandings slowly breaking down, even if not perfectly, it will take time of course, but it's now one of my favorite fics because, yes, yes, I am all over posessive Thor and rough sex that's about laying claim to one another and all the fucking feelings this fic gave me. I can't lie, this is the kind of fic I desperately wish I could write myself because of how stunning it is.

    Rec #2: This fic is one of the first I read in this fandom and, to this day, it's still one of my favorites. It's one of those fics that I get out every couple of weeks and reread the entire thing because it hits every button I have and every point I want from fic in this fandom. And, thus, I wanted to do a re-rec for it, one that's not just keyboard mashing and flailing, because I'm pretty sure that's what the previous one amounted to. As well as, whenever I try to reread that rec, I feel like I'm practically out of breath for the run-on sentences! The warnings I gave in it still apply--this is a dub-con fic with non-con elements, even as Loki has dreamed about this for ages. This is a fic with a chained down feeling to it, not in a way that's meant as punishment or meant to hurt him, because it's very clear that Thor loves him and wants to bring him home and keep him there, but it still has that pressed down feeling all the same. It's not for those who aren't into that sort of thing. As well as this fic has Thor/Sif as seen through the eyes of Loki, which means there's a lot of vitriol being spewed at her, but it's in the context of Loki hating her because he's jealous.

That said, it works for me because this Loki is still so incredibly sharp and poisonous and angry, he's brilliant and dangerous, it's just that Thor knows him better than anyone and is prepared for him this time. And I'm reading this for a myriad of reasons (the super hot sex, the power dynamics, the sharp Loki characterization, the beautiful writing, etc.) but one of the best things I walked away from this fic with was stunning Thor characterization, who has reached a point where he's decided what he wants to do about Loki and just does it. For all that Thor is more mature now, for all that he's grown up and started seeing his affect on others, he is still a character who always presses forward, who is an unstoppable force when he sets his mind to it. But it's more than just brute strength for how he handles Loki here. No, he'll never be as brilliant as Loki is, but he knows his brother and knows how to handle him and can occasionally outsmart him, when Loki isn't prepared or underestimates Thor. This is a Thor who has decided he wants Loki in his bed, he will have Loki, and takes what he wants. This is a Thor who is open and genuine and honest, but also pure strength and will. This is gorgeous Thor characterization.

And, even beyond that, it's the kind of thing that pushes my buttons--power dynamics, where Loki's anger is broken down through an inability to keep it up in the face of Thor's handling of him, it's super hot porn (and, boy, is it) woven together with brilliant character insight for both of them. And, oh, Thor bartering with Loki for what he wants (he wants to see Loki face to face, he wants Loki to call him "Brother" again, he wants to be able to kiss Loki properly), that is one of my favorite parts of this fic, because of the dynamics, but how it shows just how dear Loki is to him. With a lot of fic I reread, I skip right to the porn part, but this one? I read the magic wrestling match, I read the bartering for just how this will go down, I reread that Thor wouldn't change Loki being Jotunn even if he could, I reread the foreplay as much as I do the main event.

It's so many things that I love in fic--that mix of porn and insight! super hot sex! gorgeous characterization! beautiful writing! I end up rolling around in all my feels by the end every time!--that it's probably going to always and forever be my #1 rec in this fandom. It's why I'm indulging myself in such a super long re-rec for it, despite that the original rec wasn't that terrible. I just can't contain myself when it comes to this fic!

Par Force De Chiens by Cazio, thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, 4.4k
    AU : A half-century after the events of Thor, where Loki's heritage was revealed but it never came to destroying the Bifrost or threatening Jotunheim, and the thunderer was never banished to Midgard. Thor has become king and Odin has passed. Thor has been gone for weeks, and Loki is growing impatient. When the mighty king finally arrives with his slain stag, he does not realize that his brother has been growing restless in his stead.
    NOTE: I am going to make an exception to my usual policy of not talking about the end of a work, so there will be SPOILERS after a certain point for this fic in this rec.
    This fic... is going to come with some caveats, because I'm not quite sure how to take it. Because it is not a happy fic, so if you don't want a painful ending, you may want to give this one a pass. It's a little rough around the edges (the author relies on epithets and trying to vary words a touch too much), but there's so much potential here and I found myself pulled along with the way Loki poked and prodded at Thor, manipulating him into what Loki wanted--to have Thor finally just snap and fuck him already, which was through a lot of touching, teasing, and taunting in the right places, which, oh, that really worked for me. And I definitely enjoyed the sex, which was super hot, with just enough of a rough edge to it that it was perfect for these characters, especially because Loki's thoughts did not always match his actions, which is how it should always be! Super hot and super good for me!

Beyond this point, though, I'm going to talk about SPOILERS for the fic, important ones that you may well not want spoiled! Because I'm not precisely sure what the author was implying--aside from the obvious, that Thor's love for Loki that eventually came through was the result of a spell that Loki worked over him, that the real Thor hated him and cursed him and was disgusted by him. While the author's notes seem to indicate that Thor actually really did love his brother? So, I'm not precisely sure if there was meant to be an implication of something better here or if Thor actually did hate his brother (which is hard to swallow, even in an AU setting like this) and it's definitely only a fic for those who are prepared for that. Normally, I would have backed away from that and been like, "Nope, nope, nope." but I was pulled into the writing of this piece and genuinely enjoyed it and want to see more from this author! Just... *makes vague gestures* caveats for preferences on this fic!

untitled by alighterwithlove [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, rough sex, NSFW artwork, ~1k
    ‘I would have you scream for me,’ says Thor, punctuating his words with a sharp thrust and a twist of hips at the downstroke, and Loki’s breath hitches before he’s moaning long and loudly behind the gag every time. ‘I would have you want this as you always have for this will not change.’
    This fic definitely leans towards non-con (but Loki enjoys it enough that I hesitate to outright label it that), which is not going to be for everyone. But post-movie I love dub-con sometimes because there's so much anger there, so much of Thor having lost his patience with Loki, so he's rougher and more forceful about pinning Loki down and forcing him to... well, it's one of those things where it's all about the sex here, but you can read so much more into it. It's not hard (if you've been around the fandom and have a lot of thoughts and feelings) to see Thor being angry here, but also loving his brother, that this is as much about forcing Loki to admit to what he wants as much as it is about Thor taking what he wants. Perhaps I read too much into it, it's not really stated anywhere in the fic, but I feel it fits well with my thoughts on these things and sometimes that's an important part of what I look for in fic.

But, yeah, okay, it's mostly just that Thor pushes Loki's face down into the carpet while raising Loki's ass up into the air to fuck him completely and thoroughly and, boy, is that really goddamned hot. It's intense and messy and rough and angry and yet they both want this, exactly like this. It's a beautiful addition to the porny gif that it's based on and, as I perhaps have mentioned, it's really hot. Especially that line up there, where Thor takes Loki apart and gets him to show just how much he wants this and, oh, that's so good for me.

Possession by tailor31415, thor/loki, NSFW, some dub con, 3k
    A brother is like another half of your soul. To Thor, that meant Loki was to be his everything, and he was to be everything to Loki.
    This fic is not going to be for everyone, but it worked for me because I felt the narrative wasn't precisely condoning Thor's possessiveness of Loki, instead focusing on just that it was what it was. Which, I can't lie, I find utterly fascinating, to explore that side of Thor, who loves his brother deeply and wants everything of him, no matter how much time or hurt has passed betwee them. The final scene, set post-Avengers, when Loki has been wounded (but not terribly so) in a fight, Thor marks those wounds as his now, that everything of Loki is his.

And, oh, it's deliciously fucked up in a way that I can buy from them, that's so goddamned hot, that any time someone else leaves a mark on Loki or takes too much of his time, Thor reclaims him again. It's all the more delicious because Loki understands what they have, in a way that Thor's mortal friends can't, he's just as much in this as Thor is. And the sex is deliciously hot, but it's half because it's good sex, but also half because of the atmosphere the author wove for them here. It's not a fic for everyone, but it hit quite a number of the kinks on my list and was so good for me.

Stone Age AU, thor/loki, nsfw, dub-con/non-con in parts (at first), brief descriptions of child death, stone age au, 60k
    norsekink prompt: Thor's tribe destroys another tribe because they couldn't agree about their territories. Loki, a son of the leader of that tribe, survives, but he gets captured and enslaved.
    Rec from norsekink: I followed the link to this fic from umakoo's tumblr, because I was curious about a lengthy fic on norsekink again and I considered waiting until it was on AO3 (as the author is in the process of uploading her stories there), but I really couldn't wait, because this was such a great read. I have a difficult time believing that it's over 50k words, because it just went by so fast while I was reading, I couldn't put it down until I'd lost hours to it! I was initially skeptical, which I think a lot of people are by this summary, but it's actually a fairly heart-warming story! My one caveat is that, if you're like me and have at least a passing familiarity with Baldr's character, the making of him as a random villain in this fic was distracting during those scenes because it's against the basic tenets of his character, but was really jarring because everything else was such a delight and I enjoyed so very much of the author's choices in this fic!

This Thor is absolutely perfect, which was a blessing for me, as I've had a hard time finding good Thor characterization lately, but the fic absolutely understood why he shines in this sort of element and gets the aspects of his character down really well, which is all the more brilliant for the language barrier they face here! He's brave and strong and a good leader, he's kind to his tribe and only kills when necessary, but he's also headstrong and arrogant and takes what he wants, that never wavers. The relationship he has with Loki is very firmly non-con in the beginning, no matter how "nice" Thor is about it, but the fic doesn't flinch away from that. And this Thor has his moments of being smart, you can see why his family is utterly loyal to him, even why Loki eventually falls in love with him, the author does a fantastic job of showing both the bad sides and the charming sides of Thor's character through Loki's eyes.

But it's also in the world-building, how everything revolves around the constant, constant search for food, the difficulties they face because of the era they live in, the politics within the tribe are a never-ending difficult line that Loki has to walk. For all that this is a softer Loki in some ways, a lot of that is because we're inside his head, we see how he has to scrabble for every bit of security and navigate these waters that are so difficult. He's the one that's learning a new language, he's the one that's navigating a new political spectrum, he's the one that's balacing everything so carefully in a way that the others don't have to.

And, for all that this is a fic about the Thor/Loki relationship, it's also a fic about daily struggles in life, it's about Loki's getting to know the people in the tribe, it's about his interactions with Thor's parents and his romantic rivals and the slow acceptance he gains, the way he claws his way to something better in this life. The scenes where Loki and Odin interact are especially a highlight, as they eventually come to grudging respect for each other, despite that Odin was the one who killed Loki's father as a child. But, oh, fantastic Thor characterization, charming as hell worldbuilding, a way of writing that just sucks a person in, this fic was so absolutely good for me all the way around.
    Rec from AO3: I've recommended this fic on norsekink, but it's finally all up on AO3 and there's a new chapter (chapter 22) that I pounced on immediately. It's a post-story chapter that's told from Thor's point of view (as most of the story is in Loki's pov) and it's so good, because somehow this Thor feels so perfectly Thor. He's a charming and incredibly strong leader, there's such surety in him with his tribe and with Loki, yet the author doesn't lose the flaws in him, either, that he's arrogant and that this relationship did not start out with the best of beginnings. This chapter is just as utterly addicting as the rest of the fic is, it's a perfect cap to the rest of the story, and it's just satisfying for a shockingly good adaptation of a character into an AU I would not have thought would be as fantastic as it is.

Say You're Mine (Even If You Have To Lie) by anonymous, thor/loki, NSFW, rough sex, mild possible dub-con, 1.4k
    Thor is holding one of Loki's legs bent back against his chest, and he is thrusting lazily into him. Thor huffs out a snort of air, pulling back just enough to look at him, not slowing his pace. "I see you decided to rejoin me," he says.
    Every so often, you get one of those fics where an author decides they love you dearly and give you everything you wanted, wrapped up in a sharply written piece. Basically, this is an excuse for pure porn, where Thor's control over his desire for Loki has finally snapped and now he's going to have him and have him and have him, to the point where Loki blacks out for awhile, waking up to find Thor still fucking him and, oh, it's so good. It keeps this gorgeous balance of Thor's possessiveness of Loki, his desire to just completely unwind Loki, to fuck him into total pliancy, but also keeping Loki's wickedly sharp tongue and sense of self. ["I want you to feel this now, I want you to feel this for days, and think of me every single moment. I want you to know just who it is you belong to." "I know who I belong to," Loki says, wrapping his arms around Thor's neck to keep his balance. "I belong to me." ] There's a rough edge to their sex, just the right amount of it, just the right amount of Thor taking everything he wants with Loki, but it's also wrapped up in a strong mutual attraction, it's wrapped up in Loki having goaded Thor into this, it's wrapped up in Loki not losing himself but still dearly loving Thor, and wrapped up in really possessive, super hot sex. I expected maybe something at least halfway satisfying when I saw this prompt had been filled and maybe it's not going to be for everyone but, good lord, this author hit every one of my kinks dead on and NOW IT IS MY FAVORITE DELICIOUS CANDY.

The Bitter Taste of Hope by riventhorn, thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, 1.6k
    Gagged and imprisoned, Loki can only wait for his brother to come to him
    Another fic that's post-movie and heartbreaking and so painful, but also there's still so much love here and still hope for something better. I found this fic to really capture the dynamic that I love about this ship and what also drives me a bit batty--that Thor doesn't really get how Loki thinks, that Loki has all this anger at being pushed aside and expected to heel to everyone else's commands, but neither does Loki understand that Thor truly loves him and doesn't want him to beg. Well, maybe a little. But in that way that's because Thor loves him and knows Loki is strong enough to be worthy. But the author never has to tell us any of this, which is fantastic, instead I simply felt that, yes, everything was right on here, including the lovely sexytimes in the dark dungeon Loki is put into post-movie. Ugh, fucking fandom, giving me all these feels.

    Thor doesn't dare let go.
    I have enjoyed everything I've read by this author, the blend of dubious consent and yet making it very clear that that's one of the parts that gives the charge to their relationship on both sides. This one is short, it jumps straight into the middle of the sexytimes, but it's also still full of characterization post-Thor, it's full of showing Thor's side of this twisted, complicated, messy relationship, just as much as Loki's. Also, it's super hot.

    Loki idly runs his hand along the cool bars of the cell, tapping out an uneven rhythm as his rings catch against the steel. Thor’s vacant eyes do not track the movement, but his head turns as Loki moves, nostrils flaring as he inhales Loki’s scent.
    Jesus christ. What a glorious fic that used the prompt so well and werewolves and Loki having a plan and presnting himself to Thor and my face will never recover, I fear, and the rough, intense fucking that is so delicious. I'm not sure I can even be coherent about how much I loved this fic and how good it was for me, because there's a lot of good on a technical level here--the author captures everything needed for the AU in the fic, you feel the whole world of it in the background even as it's still a pwp that focuses on this one moment, all of this takes talent!--but, really, this porn. I can't get past it. Because, oh, Thor is so frecious and wild and the sheer size and power of him! Which is exactly what Loki is so attracted to! And the sneaking, crafty way that Loki winds around him and gets what he wants, the use of the prompt for this fic, all of it is so good for me. I just. Huff, I'm going to need a minute here.

    Even the Golden Odinson has a dirty little secret.
    Jesus Christ this fic could have pretty much been written just for me! This is one of those fics that bumps up against the non-con line to the point that some readers may not be comfortable with it, but I found that it worked for me because of two things. One, probably most importantly, is because this is idfic and the writing of the fic wholly embraces that, given the way Thor's actions are treated here and the way the story is tagged. Two, because Thor's treatment of Loki is contrasted against the treatment of other people he has sex with, the way he treats Loki is entirely differenlty from them, how Thor completely loses any arousal he had when his wife is reluctant and upset by their sex, her tears completely kill any desire he had to bed her. And that's entirely genuine, he doesn't enjoy hurting her whatsoever, only continues because he feels obligated by the necessity of the situation. You combine these two things and you have a recipe for a fic that's not going to be for everyone but I found that, by the end of the fic, I was utterly and completely in love.

A lot of this is because of the build-up, where Loki clearly enjoys that Thor wants to pin him down, he practically lights up when he discovers this about Thor, and you can practically see his wheels turning, even from Thor's point of view. Loki even enjoys the sex, for all that he protests (again, not a line everyone is going to be comfortable on and that's okay!), and the author finds this balance between power plays and Loki being a manipulative little shit. That and it's just ridiculously hot sex, it's a combination of love and anger wound together with these two, it's all about how Thor finally wants to pin his slippery and wily brother down already and enjoys taking him apart (with his dick) when he does. The way the author builds up the tension between the characters, the banter they have that shows their long familiarity with each other and that they're such brothers when they so casually and easily slip into shit talking, the way they act around each other!

Yet, for all that they're brothers, there's something more lurking under the surface between them and you feel that the entire way through this fic, until it finally comes to a head and Loki goads Thor into finally unleashing his temper and his wants. The way he straddles Thor's lap and talks about his cunt, the way Thor does want to touch it and explore it, the way he hauls Loki into bed once he's been goaded and tells him to spread his legs so Thor can see what he's got, that utterly delicious bit of roughness between them that works so well. And, wow, this was actually really excellen Thor characterization, from the way he sticks his dick into just about anything that moves to the way he loves Loki but won't just give him whatever he wants no matter how Loki promises to behave to the way his temper is quick to flare when it comes to Loki, because Loki is that one thing Thor will never be wholly emotionally healthy about. It's a bit on the dark side from what I usually read, but this author pulled it off and it was fantastic.

    He sobbed muffled whimpers into Thor’s hand, clamped around his mouth, as the latter stroked him mercilessly while pounding into him from behind.
    Oh, lord, I think my brain just threatened to dribble out my ears while reading this one. I read this one before bed the other night and thank god that's when I chose to read it, because it might be short, but it is so explosively, scorchingly hot that I was pretty ruined for anything else afterwards. I just. There are many things in this fandom that are perfectly fine and lovely and many of them I enjoy, but nothing will melt my brain faster than dom!Thor and bitchy!sub!Loki, nothing. Especially not when the fic just completely runs with it, where Thor gives no quarter, even as he loves his brother, until Loki is so completely desperate and wrecked that he's a mess. Short but powerful, omg.

All the World to Ruin by stereobone [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, 1.4k
    When Loki looks up, they’re not in Asgard. Not yet, anyway. This is somewhere else, rocky, barren, not anywhere Loki is familiar with.
    Part of me thinks that I should stop reading all these fics, these painful stories set after the Avengers movie, where Loki is so angry and Thor is realizing that he can't save his brother from the consequences of his actions and he loves Loki so much but there's anger there as well, that I should stop reading these fics that I know can't end well. And yet, I don't really want to stop, because the mess of complicated issues between them, the anger and the edge of non-con that Loki literally invites on himself, they are where the most intense emotions lie--and this fic does a fantastic job of getting to those intense feelings I have. Of how angry Loki is and how it stems from how much he loves Thor, of how Loki is always manipulative. It's a harsh piece, but a satisfying one still.

WHY THE HELL DID I WRITE THIS by apiphile, thor/loki, NSFW, some potentially disturbing imagery, literal healing cock, possible dub con, 5.1k
    In case you couldn't be bothered to wade through my histrionic tags: PWP. NO SEMBLANCE OF PLOT WHATSOEVER. Nothing makes any sense except possibly the concept of healing cock being linked to Loki being in Norse Mythology the god of "Ergi" or passive male homosexuality. And also cross-dressing, although that part's less relevant.
    I took one look at the tags on this fic and was like, "Yes, this is a thing I am going to read." And it is important to read the tags first, I think, because it helps give a lot of context to what's going on in the fic, which might otherwise seem a bit too weird. Because it's LITERALLY A HEALING COCK STORY and, yes, that is something I feel should exist more often in fandom. And I enjoyed this story a lot because, oh, sweet, violent, batshit Norse gods, I love you two ridiculous people so much. The ending is note-perfect as well, the writing is solid and nicely done, the sexytimes are a bit more bloody than I usually like, but the author makes it work for Norse gods and, seriously, literally a healing cock fic, that is so great that I can't even. There's even just the right amount of humor touched into the fic! p.s. Now I want, like, a dozen fics where Loki has a cold and Thor fucks him into feeling better. NEW HEADCANON ACCEPTED.

Good Inside by glayish, thor/loki + thor/loki/mjolnir, NSFW, object insertion, mild bondage, dub-con, 7.4k
    “Is this supposed to shame me, Thor? I thought you could do better. But I should have known.” Loki bares his teeth and when he speaks into Thor’s ear he makes sure his words bite. “There’s not enough good in you to take the bad out of me.”
    So, when you see a fic labeled "Loki/Mjolnir" and "pwp", you go into it with a certain mindset. You really only expect to read it for the smutty satisfaction, especially if you've been reading genfic all day and just want some makeouts already. You don't expect to be left feeling a little breathless by the characterization by the time it's done! But, oh, this fic was so good for me. It's sharp and painful in a lot of ways, this is Loki freshly back from Midgard after The Avengers, so he's still so damaged and angry and hurt, while Thor is still trying to help him but is now full of a lot of anger, too, and, oh, the way they get under each others' skin, the way they wind each other up is so very cutting here. One of the best things about this fic for me was the way Loki kept lashing out, especially when Thor's anger began to pass, when he started to soften, Loki wouldn't be able to stand it, and would lash out again, until Thor snaps and rips his clothes off and fucks him first with Mjolnir, then directly fucking him and it's not nice at all, but it's not mean, either. There's as much love and obsession with each othere here as there is anger and fury, that Loki is a tangle of emotions both good and bad. And, oh, some of the lines in this fic. The one from the summary--“There’s not enough good in you to take the bad out of me.”--is especially just... perfect. Yes, the sex is angrysex that is SUPER HOT and I would have loved it for that alone, because it was really satisfying and did not pull any of its punches and made everything about the fic more intense and just better, but the additional characterization and interaction. Ugh, this is immediately going on my list of absolute favorites in this fandom and I'm going to drag it out every so often to reread, because, jesus, that ending. Hot and perfect and aching and satisfying and so good.

Sleeping Beauty by lies_d, thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, somnophilia, 2k
    The Avengers find Loki has been cursed with a sleeping spell. When kissing doesn't wake him up, Thor decides to use a cure from the very oldest version of the sleeping beauty story.
    I feel like I may have recommended this fic before? Certainly, I remember reading it and then stumbling over it again later today and rereading it, but I can't recall if I did a proper rec or not. Eh, well, either way! This is one of the first fics I read when I started cautiously poking about for Thor/Loki fic, so new to the fandom and so wary of it, and yet drawn to the idea of Loki being cursed under a sleeping spell and how that had potential for AWESOME. And this fic did not disappoint! It starts with Thor making everyone kiss a sleeping Loki to see if they can wake him and then Thor kissing him and that still doesn't work so he's eventually forced into other measures and then it just... spirals off into this amazing place that I love with my whole heart. I just rolled around in glee during this whole fic, honestly.

for queen and country by versy, thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, historical au, 3.2k
    Loki lies back and thinks of England.
    When you have an author's note that says, "This is playing at being Victorian for the sake of terrible porn so please excuse any inaccuracies.", I'm pretty much going to react with a, "....I am going to read the shit out of that." Yes, the premise is humorous, but the fic itself isn't really meant to be cracky or lolarious, but instead just gleefully running straight towards the premise and how its a wonderful thing and this author clearly loves me. Thor and Loki on their wedding night, with some Victorian era sensibilities being played at, so Loki's just supposed to lie back and think of England and all that, but it doesn't quite work out that way, of course, because they end up wildly attracted to each other. And there's something really hot about the Victorian sense of... well, the attempts to be shamed about enjoying sex isn't precisely what's hot about it, it's the sense of overcoming that shame that Loki thinks he's supposed to feel, of the intimacy that he has with Thor despite himself, the way the author wrote a gorgeously hot sex scene with them. When passion overcomes "sensibility", the way it did beautifully here, that is what's really hot. Though, the sex itself was also just straight-up hot, too, especially because I never get tired of Thor being totally turned on just by looking at Loki all spread out like that.

The King's Choice + untitled sequel by lunavin, thor/loki, NSFW, pregnant!loki, dub-con, 3.7k
    Loki never helps the ice giants enter Asgard, so Thor is crowned King. His first act as ruler is to claim Loki as his consort. Willingly or not.
    I can't remember if I've recommended the first fic before or not, because I remember reading it, but I may not have been doing recs from the kinkmeme? Either way, I hadn't read the sequel before and, oh, that just really put this fic set over the top for me. This is a Thor who was never banished, so he's still arrogant and takes what he wants--which includes his brother as consort (since he should not have children until he marries and, well, he wants Loki, so...) and thus there's a bit of a dub-con warning on this, but Loki is Loki and makes the best of a situation, he knows how to bend and wrap himself around the circumstances he finds himself in. And that's super interesting to me! But, oh, the sequel. Where their relationship has been going on for awhile, they've settled into it more, and Loki is... Loki again. He delights in subtly working Thor up, saying it was only a jest, and making it seem as though Thor is the one who overreacted. It's a struggle between them, when Thor wants to take Loki to bed, but one they clearly both enjoy, one that Loki makes a point of showing that he could escape if he truly wished it so, one where Thor is never cruel about it, instead he often finds it hilarious. And, oh, this is a Loki who doesn't lose his cool, who is always calm and smiling in that way that says he knows more than you, it's perfect. Well, at least until he finds himself knocked up and can't change out of his female form and well. Then it's even more perfect.

Filthy Secret by lies_d, thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, 5k
    Thor gets falling-down drunk and pulls his brother into bed - an encounter which, if discovered, could ruin both of their lives.
    Sometimes there are just some tropes that I'll seek out in fandom, no matter how good or terrible they are, because it's worth it when I find the author who does them so well. Thor is drunk and pulls Loki down into bed with him, but then forgets it the next day, there's angst, and then confusion as the situation repeats itself, until they're both totally turned around and then suddenly they're not, because they get it. It could be terrible, but with this author, it's the reason why I keep reading these fics, because it's delicious and genuinely good and I want to give Loki all the hugs in the world when he doesn't understand Thor, when he just so desperately wants, and the length of the fic is just perfect, so that it's not over barely after it starts, but neither does it drag out too long. The pacing is lovely and the writing is lovely and, oh, the sex is super satisfying and the ending did my heart good. That's everything I want from this fandom right there.

The Games We Play by Captain_Loki, thor/loki, NSFW, fem!loki, genderplay, dub con, 1.6k
    Before Loki has a full grasp on the magic he wields he often finds himself gender swapped, and two boys and their budding sexuality begin something that starts as a simple exploration and develops. But Loki is unsure just what he means to Thor.
    I was a little wary of this fic, because the Thor/Loki starts out as them being underage and that can get a little squicky for me, but... idk, I pictured them at least in their late teens and I have a huge fondness for Loki in female form and there's something about the way this fic is written that was so intensely intriguing and good for me. There was something, well, really super hot about it, even when it wasn't that graphic yet. The Loki characterization is delicious, it's that combination of love and trust for Thor, but the growing sense of unease, mixed together with how Thor just assumes so much with Loki, that he pushes until he gets his way and Loki lets Thor take his female form, and it almost seems like its mere convenience, like Thor doesn't actually care about Loki at all, but I want to believe its more than that, that Thor loves him and just isn't communicating it well, and, ahhhh, when a fic can stir up all those feelings in me, that's when I know it's good.

Bound by aaido, thor/loki, somewhat nsfw, dub con, 8.4k wip
    In which Loki is rescued from the brink and his powers are bound as punishment. Features a slow descent into creepy obsession by Thor.
    So, another WIP that hasn't been updated in a year, but has so many of my favorite tropes that I can't help but be all over it. In this story, instead of Loki falling into the abyss at the end of Thor, he's pulled back up onto the Bifrost and his magics bound and placed under Thor's protection while he serves his punishment. And, oh, I am all over fics that are about taking months and months to give Loki time to come to terms with the revelations and work through his anger (even if it's such a horribly slow process that it's only just beginning even at 17 parts and even then....), while keeping him close to Thor, so that he can't twist their relationship around in his bitterness because Thor obviously still loves him. And it might feel like Loki is being let off easy here, but it's really not easy for him, even when we only see him through Thor's perspective, and yet it's also not really about making Loki suffer, which I have little desire to read about. So, this fic is soooo good for me, because Thor doesn't understand Loki, he's frustrated at being put in charge of Loki's punishment that he doesn't agree with, he's frustrated that Loki seems so willing to just walk away from everything and that he seems so cavalier with his own life, he's frustrated because it brings out his own attraction to Loki and he just loves Loki so much. The fic definitely gets at my feelings for both of them and, ugh, okay, it's frustrating that there won't be more of this fic, but it reads well as it is and the cliffhanger is not the worst it could have ended on. And what's here is some pretty delicious candy already.

The Demons Came Rushing Out by stereobone, thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, 2.2k
    Loki finds him first. Thor comes pouring down from the sky like an angry rain, hand outstretched to grab him, but Loki gets him first.
    I did not realize how much I wanted this fic until I had it--where Loki manages to put Thor under the Tesseract's power, making Thor loyal to him without question. Because, oh, the sharp, jagged edges of Loki's character are almost painful here, the insanity that's more than creeping up on him, the anger and rage that he has for Thor and yet there's so much more there as well, it's beautifully done here. It's dark, but gorgeously so, to watch Loki order Thor around, to kill people for Loki, to get on his knees for Loki, but it's also just as gorgeous and just as satisfying in a fucked up sort of way when Thor is as posessive of Loki, when he does these things for Loki and afterwards pulls him close and pushes him down and just takes him, all while Loki revels in enjoys what he's done to Thor. It's so deliciously fucked up and unapologetic in that fucked up twisting that it was one of the best things I read all day. Also it was super, super hot, ahhhh.

Morning After Dark by miikkaa_xx, thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, 4.6k
    Thor has lived most of his life secretly loving his brother, and while they're not related by blood, he still feels guilty. Sometime after The Avengers, enter an injured and unconscious Loki on his doorstep, who wakes up needy, begging, and drugged out of his mind - wanting nothing more than for Thor to just give in.
    Loki showing up on Thor's doorstep, totally drugged out of his mind on his own seidr, practically begging Thor to fuck him already, yes, that is a thing I am going to read. And Thor being hesitant here, which is usually really hard for me to see, works because he's had a lifetime of Loki not returning his affections in the way he feels about Loki, he's not sure that this wouldn't be hurting Loki further, when he wakes up in the morning. But I also liked this fic for the build-up, the flashbacks to moments in their lives growing up, as Thor slowly realizes that the way he wants Loki with him all the time is not the way most want a sibling near them, I liked the fic for the way Loki is so razor sharp even when he's asking Thor to touch him already, I like the way eventually Thor gives in to what he wants and finally fucks Loki properly and the sex is super, super hot for it. I like that it was one of those fics that I went into just for the pwp aspect but got a bit more out of it, even if, yeah, the sexytimes were totally what I was here for.

Let slip the dogs of war by amberfox17, thor/loki, NSFW, dub con, rough sex, loki in chains, 5.3k
    Loki is too far gone, and barely seems able to hear him. The air hums with the charge of his seidr, bottling up inside him, unable to escape so long as he is bound within the enchanted cuffs, and the beast in him is still battle-hungry and furious. He requires release, and since he is not safe to be set free, Thor has only one other kind to offer him.
    This may be my favorite fic of Amber's yet, because it's just so ridiculously hot, jfc. There's a lot I love outside of the sex (as much as anything can be outside of the sex in a fic that's centered around the fucking), especially in how Loki is genuinely dangerous and the reader feels that, how that is absolutely done justice to, but yet Thor handles him and takes him back in hand, which is done with this perfect balance of dirtybadwrong and yet genuinely good-hearted, as only in the way Thor can be, because of his sheer strength and love. It's a fic that balances all the the things necessary to not make me feel like I needed a shower afterwards (well, aside from a cold shower, obv.), that I don't feel badly for anyone in this fic, but instead I feel awesome for them! Even when it's in a rather unhealthy relationship, it's not an unhealthy fic, because this is Thor, he isn't cruel and never would be, that's why this works. Yet that doesn't mean that it's gentle or sweet, because that's not really Thor, either. But instead, you can trust him, even as he's fucking Loki roughly and that combination gets to the heart of the characters and what keeps me coming back every time.

But also the sex, goddamn. Because, oh, man, nothing gets me like the hard edge of sex like this, where it's rough but good. When Thor pushes Loki's head down and hauls his ass up to fuck into him, it's scorchingly hot, all the more so because Loki wants this just as much, that surrender to this is the way to calming down. And Loki desperately riding Thor's dick, who leaves back and watches? When Loki is fucked out but still desperate fore more and Thor keeps fucking him even harder, as Loki rasps and demands more? Goddamn, this is one of my favorites in the fandom now, seriously. Every inch of this is perfect, both in my best ability to be objective and in my subjective "this was sooooo good for my id" way.

of my true love's hair by mjnobody, thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, dub con, 5.5k
    Thor is amazing at licking pussy and nobody is going to convince me otherwise. And poor Loki, he just can't win.
    This is a sequel to Black is the Color, but as long as you kow the basic beats of that, you can read this.
    Oh, this fic is fucking exquisite, to the point that I wanted to quote every line of it because it's all so perfect and insightful and spot on. The way Loki sees Thor is utterly gorgeous, this mix of bitterness and awe and love and hate and jealousy and a dozen other things, the way this Thor is so large in Loki's life, the sheer presence of him! I would have been here for that alone, because this is it, this is where I live with characterization. So many sharp edges and Thor such an unmoveable weight and, ugh, god, it's so good. Then there's Thor going down on Loki, the way he takes Loki apart and there's such tremendous history here and so much bad shit and love and dare all wrapped up together, with ridiculously hot sex that leaves Loki a mess both physically and emotionally, because Loki may be able to goad Thor, but he always bites off more than he can chew and Thor is always stronger emotionally than Loki thinks, because Loki himself is such a mess, and oh, god, just READ THIS.

Especially because it's ridiculously hot oral sex and of course Thor is good at licking pussy, he'd be amazing at it and Loki doesn't stand a chance against that and I would love it just for the sex, but no this is Thor, who just-- as;dfkljasl;kj I can't do it! I can't write the rec this fic deserves, because this captured Thor so perfectly and hit all the right notes, all the right moments of this good-natured fighter and warrior and brother, without washing him out, this is a Thor that's almost hard to look at because he's so intense and so solid, while this Loki is so sharp and brittle and caustic. But seriously though. Thor going down on a pussy, he would be a monster at it and he'd be merciless but also hit things just right and the author combined character insight with porn and I just-- nope. This is officially the worst rec I've written, like, in the past two years at least, because I just love this fic too much. JUST FUCKING READ IT.

In His Cups by Kay (sincere), thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, drunk sex, dub con, pre-thor, 2.5k
    Everyone knows that a drunken Thor is a handsy Thor. There are no personal space or privacy issues for him. And his friends are sick of it, so they make Loki take him to bed. But a drunk Thor is not a picky Thor, either...
    This fic was so good for me, I don't know how to expres it very well, because it's basically "Thor is a handsy drunk and they all have been victim to it, so they make Loki deal with it", because surely Thor wouldn't play grabass with his brother. The force of nature that is drunk Thor, the heavy weight of him, the good-natured tone of it, the complaining from ALL the others, the cheerful Thor characterization, the way he easily pins Loki down and fucks him, the hotness of the porn (not everyone can make intercrural sex hot, but boy was it ever hot in this fic, I NEEDED A MINUTE AFTER THIS, especially because Thor was such a heavy presence here, because he weighed so much and was impossible to ignore and held Loki down like that, unf, so good for me), the morning after, all of it's complete gold. This is my perfect pre-Thor fic and it's SO GREAT, like, it's hilarious and id-pleasing and genuinely well-written, SUCH A GEM IN THIS FANDOM.

feel my bones ignite by Lise, thor/loki, NSFW, rough sex, mild bdsm elements, 6.6k
    It's very difficult to maintain intentions of a moderate, controlled conversation when Loki gets involved.
    Sometimes you love an author's work so much on such a consistent basis that you have trouble finding the words to describe it because it just simply feels like an immutable fact. For me, trying to describe why Lise's writing is so good is like trying to describe how water is wet. But, oh, I want to do it for this fic, because it is so incredible and so breathtakingly good at everything it sets out to do! Her Loki is as vicious as ever, in a way that is utterly spot on and so true to character, but also her Thor is utter perfection as well. The hope he has, the aching heavy heart he has when Loki keeps spitting at him, the way his temper is deliberately goaded by this perfect Loki who is almost gleeful in the way he attacks, yet there's something so desperately pained underneath that. The sex is only half the reason I'm recommending this fic, the other half is because of the incredible characterization here.

But, oh, the sex is still the other half of this piece. Because, there's this beautifully intense argument back and forth, constantly winding the tension tigher and tighter and then there's fucking Loki up against the wall in this stunningly gorgeous mix of anger and possessiveness and love. It's Thor, through and through, the weight and intensity of the character are captured here. And I said the sex was painfully good, yes? The marathon sex was satisfying on both a physical and emotional level that I literally flopped back in my chair afterwards. Lise builds everything up perfectly, so there's this long stretch of achingly good sex and feels and I would have loved this fic just for the first 3/4ths of the fic. But that last quarter? Jesus fuck, no, it's too perfect in what it says about both of them, what they each want, and in what I hope for. I can't deal with it. The morning after scene that I never dared hope for, it just makes everything even better, which I hadn't thought possible, especially for the way Loki acts after so many of his defenses have crumbled and he's trying to rebuild, the way Thor handles him afterwards, just. This is the fic I wish I could write, this is the fic that makes me love them both, this is the brilliant fic that is like it's in my head, only Lise writes it better. New favorite.

In Plain Sight by dreamlittleyo, thor/loki, NSFW, possible dub-con, 5.5k
    Loki may not want to be found, but that won't stop Thor from searching. Have I recommended this fic before? I can't remember if I have or not... eh, either way, it's worth a re-rec if I have. :Db This is one of those fics that... on paper, it's like a whole list of tropes of this fandom, that Thor misses his brother, mourns for him, cannot let himself believe that he's really gone, that Loki watches from the shadows until he can't help revealing himself, that he expects Thor to hate him, that Thor loves him and wants him, etc., but when I read it, it's one of the most gripping things in the fandom. The author writes an amazing Thor, who loves Loki dearly, but there's also anger there because he is angry at all that Loki's done, the blend of the two is so very good. The Loki characterization is lovely as well, he's vicious and cutting, but (as we always see when these two interact) he's still undone by Thor, he still comes apart when faced with Thor's genuine emotion. All of this on top of really super hot, gorgeous sex that's just rough enough to be perfect for the characters at this point (and did I mention super hot?) and, oh, character insight plus a boatload of feelings? This author spoils me for the rest of the fandom.

Of Princes and Savages by RandomFan, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, war trophy!loki, non-con, 4.7k
    Loki is a Prince of Jotunheim, captured in battle by Asgard’s Prince Thor. However, the Odinson doesn’t know exactly who it is that warms his bed. Loki seeks to survive and return to his family and his people, but Thor won’t let him go. As the war escalates and both sides think the other to be monsters, perhaps the two princes in the middle can come to some sort of an understanding. Or perhaps it will all end in blood and death.
    I took one look at that summary plus those tags and went, "Yup, I am going to read the shit out of that." This is definitely non-con and a darker version of Thor, but it's deliberately so, which makes it easier for me to read, especially when the author keeps his cheer and arrogance and temper and joy all still mixed in. But it's mostly war trophy!Loki being fucked a dozen different ways, a fiesty thing who hisses and spits, but is still put on his back or his belly and fucked good and well. Sometimes you just gotta roll with being a terrible person and it will net you fic like this, when the fic clearly embraces what it is, makes it clear that this is non-con in the beginning but will likely soften up eventually. Because crafty!war trophy!Loki is something I want always. Not for those who want a step further than dub-con, but somehow this doesn't hit my usual N O P E buttons, but instead just goes for the kink in that sweet spot I have. Step carefully, if you're not sure if you'd like it, but if you're a terrible person, you might fare well with it! And I definitely find myself wanting more of it, I can't lie.

Force of Persuasion by calamity-cain [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW, non-con, violence, ~1k
    I find you in a wreckage of concrete and tatters. The bruised look in your eyes turn hard at the sight of me. Mercurial lips curve in a sneer. You try to lift yourself out of the crevice, but I push you back in.
    I will definitely admit that this fic is not going to be for everyone, that it's about on the edge of what I can tolerate to read, with Thor forcing himself on Loki here, but what made it a fascinating read for me was... well, I picked up this fic because, oh, hey, porn! I'm cool with some non-con in my reading! And this was definitely more towards non-con than dub-con (which is where I usually live), which I usually have trouble putting together with Thor, an author has to work hard to get me to believe it. But here it's about... Thor so dearly wants Loki to come home, has pleaded with him, has asked him again and again, as well as being at the end of the movie, where he is sick of Loki's shit and Loki's resolve to do terrible things, so he's pushed to the edges of his temper. And they are from a warrior's society, but this fic never forgets that Thor loves Loki, even as he takes him by force. It's only cruel in that Thor is trying to slap Loki out of his insanity and the ending gave me so many feelings. That does not make any of this okay, the fic doesn't really to justify that. But it does embrace the fucked up dynamic they have here and it's more about Thor breaking Loki's resistance down than it is about the porn and that's what intrigued the hell out of me and made me love this a lot.

The Plate of Fidelity and Harmonious Love by smuttysmuttysmut [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, jotunn!loki, arranged marriage, dub-con, 6.3k
    Loki and Thor are going to be married to each other. There are lots of preparations at stake. And numerous customs and rituals have to take place.
    I find myself at a bit of a loss for how to describe this fic (other than a note to read the original prompt because that's pretty accurate) and to convey just what it was about it that I found so fascinating. I was wary when I started this, because it sounded like it could go the route of too much second hand embarrassment for me, but I love arranged marriage fic and so I wanted to at least give it a shot. And the thing about this is that the author does a fantastic job of getting in the original prompt's requests (forced bath, inspection for virginity/fertility, public consumation) and yet being almost kind about it, having the people around Loki being firm but not cruel, being as gentle as they can. And that's what just made this fic for me. The fic didn't shy away from how this was more than a little terrifying for Jotunn!Loki who was being married off to Asgard's Prince Thor, making the reader feel such empathy for him, and yet....

And yet it was not unhot. It's difficult to make a scenario like this hot precisely, which is reflected in the sex scene being rather brief, but also kind, not uncomfortable but not meant to be drawn out and satisfying, either. Yet... I can't say there wasn't a lot of intrigue on my part, a fascination with the circumstances that I greatly enjoyed. The author just really struck a great balance between discomfort and enjoyment for me! Plus, oh, Jotunn!Loki and the sense of displacement he felt and the culture shock in the background (not the point of the fic, but it was there in the little details) and lovely writing that was smooth and fit the characters so well and bonus Frigga watching over Loki's preparations before the wedding night. Loki and Frigga! Who is firm but kind with him and just a;sldkjfaljks I will always take that relationship in whatever form in comes in! And! Despite that Thor and Loki really only had about a scene and a half together, already I am in L O V E with them because it's just a touch playful but also serious and this Thor is trying to be kind and reaching out to Loki as well and just. asl;dfkjasl;kjs this author did everything right in this fic and it hit soooo many of my buttons and favorite tropes.

God's touch by SatansSin, thor/loki + tyr + jane, NSFW, non-con, violence, greek mythology au, 5.9k
    Loki was the most beautiful creature Thor had ever seen. And he was going to have him.
    This fic is a bit rough around the edges and hard to track at times, as well as I'll admit that I winced at the way it portrayed Jane as evil, but it's based on Greek mythology! Which often isn't very nice, so you really need to heed the non-con warning here. This is also a softer Loki and a Thor who rapes him while he's crying, but this also feels like a story about gods. I mention these things because they're caveats I would want to know ahead of time, as well as I don't want to say that they stopped me from enjoying the story! I wouldn't be recommending it if I didn't genuinely enjoy it and want others to read it with me. Because I read it easily in one sitting and found it genuinely interesting and in the spirit of a mythology-themed story, it hit a lot of the buttons I love in that vein. And it's a good read for when you just want something super angsty and harsh that still ends with a happy ending, because sometimes you just have a craving for that.

Malfunction by sparklyhowitzer, thor/loki, nsfw, possible dub-con, 1.6k
    Magic does not always move in linear motions, thus what is to become of Loki when his first target for dominance is Thor and his glo-stick of destiny does not perform as advertised...
    Oh, I really liked this. There's something so... different about this Thor, right from the early parts of this fic. It's not that he notices more now, because Thor always notices these things about Loki, but in the way he uses them against his brother, the way he's calmer with Loki now, the way he touches Loki now. It's beautifully written, just quietly balancing something fucked up with something genuine and loving, while Thor touches Loki intimately and, oh, when you realize what's happening, why it's happening, it's... beautiful and dangerous and so fascinating. This is not precisely a canon version of them, it's a "what if...?" that's subtle and intriguing and intense, all layered together with an intimacy that I cannot deny having found really hot.

Possession by tailor31415, thor/loki, nsfw, dub-con, pain play, 3k
    A brother is like another half of your soul. To Thor, that meant Loki was to be his everything, and he was to be everything to Loki.
    I think I may have recommended this fic when it was on FFNET? Eh, if I have, it's one that deserves a re-rec. My only real complaint is that I wish the forward skip in time had been made a little clearer at the beginning of the second half of the fic, that it's easy to tell the first half is set pre-movies, but the second half is at some point in the future. That aside, I love this fic because it's just fucked up enough on both sides of the relationship for me to enjoy that fucked up quality, where Thor is possessive of Loki, not always in a healthy way, but Loki returns it, quite possibly even deliberately egged it on. They're still Loki and Thor, this isn't a tragic relationship, it's just... godhood and the length of history they have between them makes them think differently, the violence between them isn't like with normal mortal beings. Plus, I'm really, really sucker for possessive Thor when it's well-written, when it comes with both love and strength, when it's returned by Loki as well. Plus, mm, this was really hot.

    He sobbed muffled whimpers into Thor’s hand, clamped around his mouth, as the latter stroked him mercilessly while pounding into him from behind.
    Oh, lord, I think my brain just threatened to dribble out my ears while reading this one. I read this one before bed the other night and thank god that's when I chose to read it, because it might be short, but it is so explosively, scorchingly hot that I was pretty ruined for anything else afterwards. I just. There are many things in this fandom that are perfectly fine and lovely and many of them I enjoy, but nothing will melt my brain faster than dom!Thor and bitchy!sub!Loki, nothing. Especially not when the fic just completely runs with it, where Thor gives no quarter, even as he loves his brother, until Loki is so completely desperate and wrecked that he's a mess. Short but powerful, omg.

    norsekink prompt: Thor's tribe destroys another tribe because they couldn't agree about their territories. Loki, a son of the leader of that tribe, survives, but he gets captured and enslaved.
    I followed the link to this fic from umakoo's tumblr, because I was curious about a lengthy fic on norsekink again and I considered waiting until it was on AO3 (as the author is in the process of uploading her stories there), but I really couldn't wait, because this was such a great read. I have a difficult time believing that it's over 50k words, because it just went by so fast while I was reading, I couldn't put it down until I'd lost hours to it! I was initially skeptical, which I think a lot of people are by this summary, but it's actually a fairly heart-warming story! My one caveat is that, if you're like me and have at least a passing familiarity with Baldr's character, the making of him as a random villain in this fic was distracting during those scenes because it's against the basic tenets of his character, but was really jarring because everything else was such a delight and I enjoyed so very much of the author's choices in this fic!

This Thor is absolutely perfect, which was a blessing for me, as I've had a hard time finding good Thor characterization lately, but the fic absolutely understood why he shines in this sort of element and gets the aspects of his character down really well, which is all the more brilliant for the language barrier they face here! He's brave and strong and a good leader, he's kind to his tribe and only kills when necessary, but he's also headstrong and arrogant and takes what he wants, that never wavers. The relationship he has with Loki is very firmly non-con in the beginning, no matter how "nice" Thor is about it, but the fic doesn't flinch away from that. And this Thor has his moments of being smart, you can see why his family is utterly loyal to him, even why Loki eventually falls in love with him, the author does a fantastic job of showing both the bad sides and the charming sides of Thor's character through Loki's eyes.

But it's also in the world-building, how everything revolves around the constant, constant search for food, the difficulties they face because of the era they live in, the politics within the tribe are a never-ending difficult line that Loki has to walk. For all that this is a softer Loki in some ways, a lot of that is because we're inside his head, we see how he has to scrabble for every bit of security and navigate these waters that are so difficult. He's the one that's learning a new language, he's the one that's navigating a new political spectrum, he's the one that's balacing everything so carefully in a way that the others don't have to.

And, for all that this is a fic about the Thor/Loki relationship, it's also a fic about daily struggles in life, it's about Loki's getting to know the people in the tribe, it's about his interactions with Thor's parents and his romantic rivals and the slow acceptance he gains, the way he claws his way to something better in this life. The scenes where Loki and Odin interact are especially a highlight, as they eventually come to grudging respect for each other, despite that Odin was the one who killed Loki's father as a child. But, oh, fantastic Thor characterization, charming as hell worldbuilding, a way of writing that just sucks a person in, this fic was so absolutely good for me all the way around.

Make Me by Arkada, thor/loki, NSFW, dub-con, rough sex, bondage, bdsm, loki in chains, 4k
    Thor loves Loki, but there is only one way Loki will allow him to show it.
    I am not going to be able to write the rec I want to write for this fic because... just... holy hell, this fic was practically tailored to be everything I wanted after the latest TV spot dealing with Loki in chains. It was all about Thor understanding him, loving him, and being angry with him, while Loki only allows Thor to love him in this angry way. It's brilliant at everything it did, but most especially with the bdsm aspect because Loki's desperation for the attention of Thor's firm hand and the way he wants to be punished, the way he wants to be forced into this, so that he can have it without admitting that he wants it, but Thor is the perfect dom for him, because he pulls more out of Loki than he expects, his "So be it." when Loki won't give up anything any other way is perfect, because it blends together just how much Thor genuinely loves him, loves him with such an honesty that only Thor can do, even as Thor is angry with him and rough with him. Which is what Loki wants. And, oh, when Thor went that one step further, because he's no mere puppet for Loki to pluck the strings of, when he pulled more out of Loki and made him admit certain things, that was just. That was, not exaggerating, everything I wanted.

But that's all the more true becasue it came with some blisteringly hot sex, the kind that was just about painful and had me unable to start a new fic after I'd finished this one. I genuinely had to take a break after I finished this because it was so intense and so hot. This fic does everything right, that it's just as much about Thor here, how he crowds everything else out of Loki in these moments, how that sheer weight and presence of the character is absolutely incredible. It does justice to how sharp and bitter and twisted Loki is now, it doesn't flinch away from how viciously angry things are between them, even as it's so good and there's so much room for love here because Thor holds that firmly between them. This is a fic that might have rough sex, but it shows why Thor is such a good dom, because he loves so genuinely and he cares about what Loki wants, but doesn't just follow along behind. And that's why Loki responds to him. Plus, no, seriously, that sex was ridiculously hot, fuck.

Avengers/Thor: Sleeping Beauty by lies_d - I feel like I may have recommended this fic before? Certainly, I remember reading it and then stumbling over it again later today and rereading it, but I can't recall if I did a proper rec or not. Eh, well, either way! This is one of the first fics I read when I started cautiously poking about for Thor/Loki fic, so new to the fandom and so wary of it, and yet drawn to the idea of Loki being cursed under a sleeping spell and how that had potential for AWESOME. And this fic did not disappoint! It starts with Thor making everyone kiss a sleeping Loki to see if they can wake him and then Thor kissing him and that still doesn't work so he's eventually forced into other measures and then it just... spirals off into this amazing place that I love with my whole heart. I just rolled around in glee during this whole fic, honestly. (Thor/Loki, NSFW, dubious consent.) Avengers/Thor: Bound by aaido - So, another WIP that hasn't been updated in a year, but has so many of my favorite tropes that I can't help but be all over it. In this story, instead of Loki falling into the abyss at the end of Thor, he's pulled back up onto the Bifrost and his magics bound and placed under Thor's protection while he serves his punishment. And, oh, I am all over fics that are about taking months and months to give Loki time to come to terms with the revelations and work through his anger (even if it's such a horribly slow process that it's only just beginning even at 17 parts and even then....), while keeping him close to Thor, so that he can't twist their relationship around in his bitterness because Thor obviously still loves him. And it might feel like Loki is being let off easy here, but it's really not easy for him, even when we only see him through Thor's perspective, and yet it's also not really about making Loki suffer, which I have little desire to read about. So, this fic is soooo good for me, because Thor doesn't understand Loki, he's frustrated at being put in charge of Loki's punishment that he doesn't agree with, he's frustrated that Loki seems so willing to just walk away from everything and that he seems so cavalier with his own life, he's frustrated because it brings out his own attraction to Loki and he just loves Loki so much. The fic definitely gets at my feelings for both of them and, ugh, okay, it's frustrating that there won't be more of this fic, but it reads well as it is and the cliffhanger is not the worst it could have ended on. And what's here is some pretty delicious candy already.

    “Is this supposed to shame me, Thor? I thought you could do better. But I should have known.” Loki bares his teeth and when he speaks into Thor’s ear he makes sure his words bite. “There’s not enough good in you to take the bad out of me.”
    So, when you see a fic labeled "Loki/Mjolnir" and "pwp", you go into it with a certain mindset. You really only expect to read it for the smutty satisfaction, especially if you've been reading genfic all day and just want some makeouts already. You don't expect to be left feeling a little breathless by the characterization by the time it's done! But, oh, this fic was so good for me. It's sharp and painful in a lot of ways, this is Loki freshly back from Midgard after The Avengers, so he's still so damaged and angry and hurt, while Thor is still trying to help him but is now full of a lot of anger, too, and, oh, the way they get under each others' skin, the way they wind each other up is so very cutting here. One of the best things about this fic for me was the way Loki kept lashing out, especially when Thor's anger began to pass, when he started to soften, Loki wouldn't be able to stand it, and would lash out again, until Thor snaps and rips his clothes off and fucks him first with Mjolnir, then directly fucking him and it's not nice at all, but it's not mean, either. There's as much love and obsession with each othere here as there is anger and fury, that Loki is a tangle of emotions both good and bad. And, oh, some of the lines in this fic. The one from the summary--“There’s not enough good in you to take the bad out of me.”--is especially just... perfect. Yes, the sex is angrysex that is SUPER HOT and I would have loved it for that alone, because it was really satisfying and did not pull any of its punches and made everything about the fic more intense and just better, but the additional characterization and interaction. Ugh, this is immediately going on my list of absolute favorites in this fandom and I'm going to drag it out every so often to reread, because, jesus, that ending. Hot and perfect and aching and satisfying and so good.

    "I'm right here, brother," Thor’s voice echoed so close to his ear it made him squirm uncomfortably in his grip.
    This fic lost me a handful of times on being able to track what was going on, who was saying what, who was putting what where and there's really not a lot of context for the events here, so you just sort of have to roll with that this is orgy porn where they're all taking turns with Loki, but it also has a lot of potential that I want to see more of. And, look, sometimes you just have that character that you want to take a trillion dicks and that's me with Loki, especially when it's Thor holding him down or fucking him half of the time, especially when the fic is all about enjoying Loki being totally fucked out, even as he's still a snarky little shit about it. This fic did so many things right (that Thor was central to Loki's character here, even as he interacted with the other Avengers, that Loki is physically stronger than regular humans, so watch your dick, Clint, or you may not get it back in the same shape you started with if Loki clamps down, YES, I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THAT IN FIC) and it was right in my wheelhouse for Loki enjoying himself here that I enjoyed it and want to see more fic like this. The banter is fun, the sex is super hot when it really gets going, and the dynamics between all the characters are different, which is central to my enjoyment of Loki's character in fandom. I want him to interact with everyone! So, fic where he has sex with all of them and enjoys himself? Yes, give me that.

    I honestly don't know how this fic didn't get more attention in fandom??? And I fear this rec will be terrible because there's so much I want to say about this beautiful fic and yet words seem to fail me. But, okay, here goes. I was initially wary of this Thor, but quickly he became perfect--angry and so huge in presence, the battleaxe to Loki's rapier, and yet entirely unwilling to surrender Loki to his fate. It's in the balance of these things that I often find Thor and this fic did a beautiful job of it, he was Thor here. It is a Loki-centric piece overall, balancing his bitterness, rage, sorrow, and love in really beautiful ways, but both of them have half a dozen lines I wanted to mark down for how well they captured their characters, how spot on everything felt here.

It's gorgeous writing and even the descriptions of the way Thor lands on the ground or the way he touches Loki, the sheer power of him and his anger, yet you never doubt the love, it's so goddamned good for me. The background bits of worldbuilding were super interesting, and, oh, man, it just. It hit that note where Loki has done so much shit and he should be left to the bed he's made for himself, but Thor will keep trying anyway, he will always find a way. Just give me that always, especially when it has such a great emotional build up/climax for it! And the sex is brief, but utterly perfect, when Thor holds him by the neck or the hair or the ship, when he fucks into Loki and braces them against the headboard so he can fuck in harder, when he holds Loki to him, chest to back and kisses the nape of Loki's neck, ohhhh, that left quite the impression. *__* It's angry sex and yet loving, in their way. And Loki does love him in return, but he's so poisonous and we don't know how it will ultimately end, but that's perfect here, too. JUST GO READ THIS FIC, OKAY.

    In the cramped quarters of wall-to-wall tenement apartments, one thing leads to another: an open window, a voyeur’s gaze, sliced onions, a kitchen fire.
    This is a fic you definitely need to pay attention to the warnings on, it's dub-con and a bit dark, but if you like a bit of power play, where Thor realizes Loki gets off on being taken in hand, then this is a gorgeous fic. It's a human AU where they're neighbors and it's really a pwp with a food kink, but it's a great mix of dark and yet happy! It's perfect for me, not only hitting the kinks that I am really into, but not making it cruel or mean-spirited, but that there's something enthusiastic and almost sweet afterwards. There's an almost anonymous quality to the fic and yet it's so easy to see the characters and their relationship here! Thor bending Loki over the counter and spanking him and then fucking him, just all rought intensity that Loki responds to and then sweetness afterwards, it's a delicious blend of good and yet fucked up. And so hot, oh my god, the porn was amazingly good for me, right down to the taking Loki in hand and fucking him until he has trouble walking. I needed some time after that.

    Loki is one of the best burglars-for-hire in the whole of the city, able to keep even the cop who's always got an eye on him from knowing when he's up to no good. But when he meets the gorgeous Thor, a pleasure bot, he leaves all of that behind for a slightly more respectable past time.
    I was very wary of android!Thor, all the more so because I have a problem being emotionally invested in robots, but this fic completely won me over and it was so good. I pretty much tore through it in two sittings (and it would have been one if I hadn't had to move, because I went immediately back to it after getting settled again), because it was so engrossing. It blendds these characters into the Almost Human world really well and kept the spirit and dynamic of both of them. It had moments of being light-hearted, it balanced the ncessary plot and world building aspects with being self-contained and not bloated, making it a fantastic, smooth read.

The sex scenes were also fantastic, the attraction Loki had to Thor, the bit of a playful bantering dynamic between them, the way Loki was caught on the burglary attempt, but clearly enjoys being pinned down by Thor, just the edge of roughness making it ridiculously hot. Loki's "Am I to fuck myself?" was perfectly done and the punishing pace of the sex was also ridiculously hot! The later suggestion of Thor fucking him with a sanded down broom handle because Loki likes being manhandled was a very pleasant image and completely adorable and one of those things that maybe shouldn't work as well as it did, but oh it did.

The ending was perfect as well, it wrapped everything up nicely and I got all warm-hearted at the ending, it was emotionally satisfied and just... it was a light-hearted fic that was a joy to read! There's even some really great Steve & Loki banter, with Steve as a cop who wants better for Loki but is keeping a suspicious eye on him, which is a delightful thing to me, because I love these two interacting! And it gave Loki a chance to be a rude little shit, which is also my favorite thing. This was a lovely piece of just pure fun to read!

    “I want you to be rough with me,” Loki says, forcing himself to uncurl his clawed hands. “I want you to scream at me and use me and not stop no matter what I say. I want you to be cruel, in word and deed. I want you to make me suffer.”
    This fic was amazing, to the point I'm not sure I can write a proper rec for it and convey everything it made me feel. It's this delicious combination of ridiculously hot sex and exploration of Loki's issues, his self-hate and inability to be at peace, the way that conflicts against his relationship with Thor, who loves him and clearly cares for him. This fic is a way of lancing the wound, to get the chaos and storm of Thor that he craves, to have Thor do this to him. Where it gets really excellent, though, is that Thor has all this presence in the fic and all this rage he plays up has some truth to it, that he's not following Loki's direction, because that's not Thor and that's not what Loki wants. He does this for Loki, always, but Thor truly wields the situation and his own temper here.

And that's why this rough sex is so damn good, because Thor's anger at Loki's behavior and the complete ingratitude he shows Thor, give it an extra edge, so Thor flipping Loki onto his stomach and roughly stretching him open, the harsh hand in Loki's hair so his head doesn't crack against the floor but still pulls tight, the way Thor fucks into him hard and wrecks him? All of it is so hot and so good. It's rough and intense and Loki gets off on the harsh words and Thor's anger, but there is no doubt that Thor loves him. Give me storm god Thor is a fucking avalanche and Loki who is bitter and wanting and put those two things together with love and Thor fucking the batshit out of Loki for five minutes and, oh, I will always be there.

    The sensations register one by one; the hands tightly gripping his hips, the raw soreness as he feels himself get tugged forward and dragged back again and again, the puffs of air panted against his cheek.
    Holy fuck. Okay, this is a fic that you need to read the warnings on, where it's authorally intended as dub-con, but it acknowledges that it'll bump up against non-con for some. This is pre-movies, so Thor is more arrogant than he is later, but it works because he's cheerful about his arrogance and possessiveness, as well as Loki doesn't ever fear him, instead insults and goads him, in that way he has. So the dynamic works for me for that, but also because jealous!Thor and possessive!Thor, that is my thing, so hard. This fic is scorchingly hot, every description is perfect as Thor turns Loki onto his stomach or pulls Loki into his lap to drop him down the length of Thor's cock or flips him over to fuck into him again--I honestly shivered at Thor's pure strength and stamina and how much he loved and desired Loki, how the sex was rough but loving, that is my thing, holy shit. How Thor would make Loki feel it for a week, make him unable to walk properly so he would be right where Thor put him, that if Loki used a healing stone, he'd start all over again to bring him back to this point. Possessive!Thor and 'fuck off I belong to no one'!Loki are stunning together and Loki being fucked out and having all of Thor's attention, oh my god, I was so completely gone on this one. It is one of my absolute favorites in the fandom now.
