Transaction by EliraWinter, thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, arranged marriage, pregnant!loki, jotunn!loki, fluff, 14k
    The young Jotun Prince, Loki, is given to Asgard as a bride for Thor in exchange for peace.
    [ Chapter 1 ] Ahhh, there are certain things that I'm weak to in this fandom and this fic hit on three of them immediately--Thor/Loki, arranged marriage, and eventual pregnancy. Fuck you all, I eat this stuff up like it's candy and, oh, this fic is only just over 500 words so far, it's only the beginning and basic setup, not much beyond Loki being exchanged for the Casket, but it's solidly written, and has some lovely moments of imagery so far. I just. Picturing bb!Jotunn!Loki holding his father's hand, looking at the Aesir come to make him part of their family, I'm just. Ugh. So weak to this. And I really, really hope there's going to be more of this one soon. *rubs hands gleefully*
    [ Chapter 2 ] Oh, another short chapter, but I don't even care! Arranged marriage! Jotunn!bb!Loki in Asgard! And it's so darling and surprisingly sweet that I could just fucking coo at it because omg there's a brief scene of Loki seeing his first horse and then, because he's never ridden one before, he'll ride with Thor and, shit, that is apparently a weakness I never knew I had. ADORABLE BABIES.
    [ Chapter 3 ] I know I should wait a bit to let this story pile up some before doing another rec but, whatever, fuck you guys, precious baby Loki coming to Asgard for the first time and everyone being nice to the little Jotunn prince who doesn't know how to deal with all of this certainly not his arranged marriage to Thor but it's all so sweet and adorable that I just love it. This fic is all the things I'm weak to and this chapter was really good for me today, given that I've been reading a bunch of angsty fic all day.
    [ Chapter 4-10 ] I let this fic sit for a bit (not intentionally, I was just distracted for a few days with other things) and then decided to read this selection of chapters all in one go today. And you know what my favorite thing about this fic is? IT'S SO HAPPY. Everything is wonderful! Asgard thinks Loki is darling! Loki makes friends with Sif! Loki and Thor clearly love each other! Loki is being taught magic and it's totally fine! He's also learning how to fight because he wants to do both! The author has clearly thrown out whatever doesn't work (in making this a happy fic) and I could not love them more for it, because the entire delight of this fic is that IT IS SO HAPPY AND WONDERFUL. And it's not necessarily even saccharine about it (though, it's not for those who only prefer the messier, more complicated stories, but I have always been a fan of FUCK YOU SOMETIMES MY HEART JUST NEEDS TO BE HAPPY), it's just... everything goes right, everything is good, everything is darling. And, oh, the most recent chapter, while Thor is away on his first quest and Loki tries not to worry about him, but ends up doing so anyway, and you can feel that they're really falling in love with each other and just. Yes. This does my heart so much good.
    [ Chapter 11 ] This fic continues to be my happy place and I would be crushed if the author ever took it away from me. This chapter is simply about the morning after Thor and Loki's first time, where doubts creep in a bit, because Thor still feels Loki is young yet, but mostly it's just the sweetest thing and made me feel all warm and fluffy on the inside and I can't tell you how much better my day was for it, even just as soon as I saw it had updated, my day was instantly better. Plus, bonus quick scene with Thor and Frigga! Best.
    [ Chapter 12 ] I was originally going to wait until the next chapter of this fic had been posted but, ugh, no, I can't hold myself back because this is one of my favorites in the fandom. The chapters are always short, but they're just such bursts of sunshine in my life! Even when things are angsty (as they are in this chapter--as Thor wonders if Loki ever imagined being with someone else, which of course Loki has thought about, which sends Thor into a brood) I have trust in the author to use it to bring back the warm and fuzzies. Because it's pretty obvious that it's about how much they both want to be with each other and only each other, that jealousy is going to come up sometimes, and it'll be something for them to work through. Plus bonus Sif and Loki being cute while she has little patience for their spats! Adorable!
    [ Chapter 13 ] Once again, my day was better when I saw the latest chapter of this was posted, because my happy place! Even as, I can't lie, I've been following this fic long enough that I'm fond of the characters to the degree that the fluffy angst (when Thor misunderstands Loki's meaning, so he kisses someone else) kind of made me ache for them, even as I knew the author would eventually make it right. The other thing I found I really loved about this chapter in particular was that Loki was a little vicious here, for all that this is a much softer, much nicer universe for Loki, he's still able to whip around and very nearly hiss when he's angry. Still, though. This is a happy making fic and bless the author for it. *basks*
    [ Chapter 14 ] This is another short chapter, but ah! Sunshine in my life again! Especially because there are happy makeouts, but also Loki being firm about how, if this is going to work from now on, they have to be serious about each other and pledge themselves to each other, which means Thor is going to go all out. As Thor is wont to do. And that, too, is going to be so good for me because ahhhhh Thor trying to be thoughtful and willing to make up for his mistakes even if he messes things up sometimes! Yes, give me that always.
    [ Chapter 15-16 ] These two chapters read really well together, so I'm glad I waited to read them together (especially since chapter 16 is extra short) and, ahhhh, this fic is once again my happy place. It continues to be pure sunshine and rainbows as Thor goes to Jotunheim to ask permission to properly court Loki because he knows that will show Loki he's serious about this and Loki goes along and actually has a pretty good time on Jotunheim, where they're thankful for the sacrifice he's made to help better their Realm. I'm sorry that this fic seems to be meandering towards the end (WHAT WILL I DO WITHOUT MY HAPPY PLACE??) but these two chapters were lovely and heart-warming, putting to rest the issues Loki has with missing Jotunheim in a lovely way, where it's a good feeling now, but he belongs in Asgard now and, ugh, the small details of things like Loki slipping his hand into Thor's, that just makes me happy. Bleh, this rec was incoherent but whatever. This made me happy.
    [ Chapter 17-18 ] Ahhhh, I love this fic so much! And now it's been updated again! I love what this chapter does especially, where it's more sunshine and happiness and sweetness, where Thor really is working to figure out how to make things up to Loki, to treat him better, and finds a thoughtful way here. When he includes Loki the way he does in this chapter, it accomplishes several things, including treating Loki seriously and yet not shoving him into the same box that canon did, but instead letting him play to his own strengths. This was Thor asking, rather than assuming or demanding, this was Thor actually working to do something right, and it pays off wonderfully. But also there's a scene where Loki decides to cut his hair and has Thor help and it's just pure fluff, but in that way that makes me happy and works for me because a) this is a different universe with different circumstances for the characters and b) they're teenagers in love and they do shit like that. Also, fuck you, I love hair cutting. *__*

A Place Called Home by cavaleira, thor/loki + kids, NSFW, fluff, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, pregnant!loki, domestic, 5.6k
    A hectic day in the life of Loki, Thor, and their five kids (with a sixth on the way). Pure fluff.
    This was just so very satisfying for how fluffy and warm-hearted and good it was. I don't think I stopped smiling the entire time I was reading and I genuinely felt all warm and fuzzy afterwards! The brood of kids they have and all the little domestic details are perfect and then you add in the happy, warm, intimate, joyful sex where Loki rides Thor and they both love Thor's promises to keep fucking him until they have even more kids and I just-- I practically melted into goo. The good kind of goo! It's fluffy, but it's so very them, in a happier life and I love this completely without irony. It's a fantastic read and I can't recommend it enough if you just want to be straight up happy in the soul.

Through the Fire by umakoo, thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, jotunn!loki, pregnant!loki, intersex!loki, domestic fluff, mild violence, 18.1k
    The fifth and final part in my series of Jotun AU fics in which Thor and Loki are new parents and come face to face with their past.
    This is the fifth of a series of fics that should be read in order!
    Speaking of fics that I'm going to have a terrible time writing a rec for, where I'll either wind up writing a novel or just keyboard smashing for three paragraphs. This series has been wonderfully good for me, because it's a fantastic blending of mythology and the MCU characters, where they're not strictly one or the other, but you can feel the spirit of both them so very well, you can feel how familiar the author is with this world she's set up for them. But it's also more than that, because even a detailed headcanon of a world doesn't always translate to an interesting fic, neither does just simply dumping information or details about Norse culture and the mythologies in, so it's thankful that the fic has a gorgeous way of weaving them into the story. I often thought while reading this fic that I would like to use it for an example to writers who want to work details into their writing, how to not overwhelm or pause the flow of the story, but who have all these little touches that they want to use for enrichening the world. Sometimes it's as simple as quickly describing the trees or the food laid out before the characters or an object in their hand or the type of clothes they're wearing or how they travel from one place to the next. Detail that you don't notice unless you're paying attention, but that find that balance between describing the world richly and yet letting you picture it in your mind's eye.

But even more than just on a technical level, this fic is entirely satisfying on an emotional level for the domestic fluff aspect that doesn't let go of these characters still being themselves. The fic has a strong sense of both Thor and Loki, they both have such strong personalities, and I love that they fight more than once in front of the reader, true fights that feel entirely organic to the relationship, the kind that you can relate to with any married couple. Yet, even when it's a terrifying clash or when there are such angry words between them, there's never that hint of fear that they're going to break up for it, not even because the author doesn't write that kind of fic, but simply because it's just the way married people argue sometimes! That's not something that I get to read often enough in fic and so I loved having it here.

Then, on top of all that, this is a fic that's largely about Thor and Loki as parents, which actually does a great job of showing the kids' personalities beginning to show and not having them overtake the story too much. It's just the right amount of kids in kidfic, that it's really more about the parents (as they're the characters we're emotionally attached to) than it is about the children, finding that line between them being massively important to the characters and other things going on. So, that means the domestic fluff is half about showing them as parents (I am never going to be over this, because there is so precious little fic of them actually parenting kids, not just having babies!!) and also in how they simply live their lives. This is a world where it's not entirely accepted that Thor married a Jotunn, that his children are half-Jotunn, but it's not an evil or cruel world, just one that has a lot of lingering bigotry that you can believe will eventually be worked through. One day. Because the scope of this fic is nicely long, which makes you feel how very much these are gods who live thousands of years (or longer), as well as fits with the mythology feel of the story.

And I love the foreshadowing in this fic, which I will not talk too much about for fear of spoilers, some of which is build-up that you see coming (and are excited to get to!) and some of which comes out of nowhere, but it all feels wonderfully paced and properly built towards! The sense of the other realms (which aren't necessarily important to the greater plot, but are important in the sense of history and their daily lives) and the magic that the characters use and the way the entire fic is charismatic and left me just happy to have read it... I'm grateful for these stories and sad that this is likely the last of the major entries of it, even as this was entirely emotionally satisfying as a resolution, goddamn. It's got absolutely everything I could want from it, including some wonderfully enthusiastic and heartwarming sex that's still absolutely filthy and ridiculously hot. I really could not ask for more. ♥

First Date - Cardiff Winter Wonderland by amberfox17 [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, human au, semi-skating au, fluff, 1.4k
    “I thought you said you could skate?” “I can skate,” Thor says indignantly. “I am skating.”
    This was sweet and short, but utterly charming and sharply written and just a total joy to read. It's all about the fluffier things with Thor and Loki on their first date, that sense of banter that comes from flirting between them in that way that makes my heart glad to read about, it's just nice to see a bit of teasing that comes right along with the fresh and new sense of falling in love. That, in some universes, they can just simply be happy, where Loki flirts and teases and Thor loves him entirely and they can just be. I love how Amber writes fluff sometimes, because the little touches of their skating and the hot chocolate and the ferris wheel ride and the way Thor holds Loki and he feels a bit fragile and yet he's not and then there's kissing and just. Happy sigh.

cold war by cavaleira [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW, fluff, 2.1k
    featuring teenage dickwads in love, snow, tickling, and (of course) fucking
    Oh, god, asshole teenagers in love who go on adventures and fuck like rabbits. This is everything I need in life right here. The author does beautifully with balancing their little shit natures at this stage in their life with the happy, warm, feel-good air of it so that it's delightfully charming and the sex is delicious and there's snuggling for warmth and teenagers fucking like rabbits and they're such absolute brothers here and teenagers being horny little monkeys and it's the balm I needed after all the crushing feels in this fandom and teenagers fucking like hormonal hot messes. Everything is good and wonderful in this fic.

Assure Me That Your Love Is Mine by astrild, thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    Shameless fluff in which Thor is extra cuddly after sex and Loki is not.
    Ahhhhh, this is absolutely what I needed. The summary reads as: Shameless fluff in which Thor is extra cuddly after sex and Loki is not. Yes, good. There needs to be more of this kind of thing, I am not even kidding a little bit. I love it because Loki seriously needs more hugs, but also because it's such a Thor thing to do, to just wrap his arms around Loki and refuse to be budged. Loki doesn't need dignity in these situations anyway. :| The author does a lovely job of capturing the joy in this for me and, though it was written after the 2011 Thor movie but before the 2012 Avengers movie, I am firmly placing this post-Avengers, too. :D

The Deepest of Loves by mozzarellaroses, thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    "Dance with me, my queen?" The look Thor received for that statement was a very telling mix of disbelief, insult, and affection. "Call me that one more time and you'll be limping before you even start," Loki threatened lightly, unable to keep the laughter out of his voice or the smile off his face.
    Given all the angst and tragedy I read with this ship, sometimes I just want something fluffy. So, when I saw the prompt for this one, about a happy and cherished marriage between Thor and Loki, where everything is good and light, fuck yes, I jumped on that fucker like it was air I needed to breathe. And it's so sweet and so darling and so charming that I had a bit of a heartache afterwards, all the moreso because the author did a lovely job of keeping Thor and Loki's personalities intact, all things considered in such a happy, warm world. I may even have cooed a bit by the ending, because, ugh, FEELINGS. ♥

Where We've Come by badass-tiger, thor/loki, married au, fluff, 5k
    Loki is the second son of Laufey, betrothed to Thor, the first son of Odin. It takes a while for things to work out between them.
    This story is definitely on the fluffy, schmoopy side, even as Loki tries to keep hold of his dignity and protective walls. And, given this fandom and this ship, I read a lot of wrenching, angsty fic and sometimes I feel like NO MORE I NEED SOME FLUFF and then go seek out adorable AU fics where Thor and Loki get married to unite Asgard and Jotunheim. The writing could use a bit of tweaking and polishing, it feels a bit rushed, but it's got a charm and gave me a lot of warm and fuzzy feelings, the kind where I want to tell anyone who doesn't understand my pure and true love for this genre to fuck off already. I loved that this story was all about the two of them slowly... not entirely hating each other... then being won over despite themselves... and then maybe they were kind of in love with each other. Just, ahhhhh, this is what I needed today and bless the author for providing it.

Gilded Cages by miss_aphelion, thor/loki + other asgardians, jotunn!loki, pregnant!loki, in heat!loki, good!laufey, fluff, 16k
    Loki is the cherished youngest son of the very overprotective King Laufey, and Loki has had quite enough of his father's restrictions. So he slips away to Asgard and has a tryst with the son of Odin—the consequences of which are going to be impossible to hide.
    A fic in which Loki is the cherished youngest son of Laufey, beloved but chafing under the watchful eye of his father, so he sneaks away to Asgard during mating season, and I see the fic is labeled with Loki getting knocked up? Oh, I read the shit out of this one, let me tell you. And I really loved it a lot, because the different circumstances--where Loki is overprotected and shown a ton of affection and not lied to--do make a lot of difference in his character, but he's still Loki. He's still far too clever and doesn't want to just be a protected thing hidden away from the worlds, he does as he wants and smiles and lies his way out of trouble. Yes, this is a much nicer dynamic than in the movies, this Loki and Thor don't clash, there's no resentment between them, but I still recognized them and was pulled right into the story this author was telling. The chemistry between them was delightful and of course it was my favorite part, but I actually found that I was reading this for the Laufey - Loki characterization as well! Laufey was still dangerous and threatening, but it was wonderful to see him as an overprotective parent that clearly loved his son, even as he smothered him a bit too much, it made for a satisfying change from the canon of the movies.

But also Loki being a sneaky little shit was so good for me, the writing was beautiful and I loved how elegant Loki's words were, how smoothly he lied or twisted words around, it made the trope of knocked up!Loki all the more delicious. And I love that this fic's entire point was about being happy, about bringing these characters together in a way that warmed my heart, that made me want to roll around in my bed afterwards and just glow with happiness! Fuck angst, there needs to be more happy fics! Happy fics where Loki's kid is already a little shit even before it's born and is messing with his magic and yet he loves it already and Laufey is like I HOPE IT'S JUST AS MUCH OF A LITTLE SHIT AS YOU ARE TO ME and you know it will be and everything works out? Yeah, I need more of these. Especially when everything is just super fucking satisfying.

Candied by drusche, thor/loki, fluff, 3.5k
    Loki has recently discovered the existence of lollipops and he is obsessed with them to the extent of obscenely licking and sucking on them during battles with the Avengers. Thor cannot find it in himself to object when Loki is trailing the red candy up his pale sinewy belly.
    You know what's one of those things that can go either really well or really off track? Lollipop fic. And this one was just... it was just loopy enough that it wound up working really well for me, because it was hilarious and Thor's reactions to Loki's sudden fixation on candy he could suck on was delightful (he's SO HAPPY his brother is actually eating something! oh, sometimes Thor threatens to be my favorite ever) and Tony's, "....seriously? Seriously?" and "This is hilarious." reactions were delightful, and Loki is hilarious as well and it strode that line between, "Yes, this is good." and humor really well. Plus, I just love the more settled relationship between Thor and Loki and the Avengers, at some point in the future when he's a menace, but one they can deal with, and things are... less severe with Thor and Loki. The author really makes that work, too.

Poisoned with Child by madwriter223, thor/loki, fluff, pregnant!loki, miscarriage, 4k
    When Thor brought Loki back to Asgard, he had not expected what they would discover.
    This is one of those fics that... I suspect you need to go in with the mindset of accepting that it's going to absolve Loki of his actions and choices in both Thor and The Avengers. Some people are going to be fine with that for an interesting story, some people aren't going to be able to stomach the idea at all (which I can't blame anyone for, given that there is often a Loki apologia bent to fandom that gets a bit intense) and, personally, I firmly fall into the latter. In this fic, Loki is acquitted of his crimes because he was with child during the time of them and Aesir/Jotun pregnancies are rarely a good thing for the mental health of the carrier, and it had so much potential to just be an excuse for Loki or to be squicky, but I found myself really intrigued by the world the author built here, the various fallout from all aspects (from Loki himself to Thor to Odin to the Jotun to the Avengers, etc.), which wasn't super in depth, there wasn't a lot of time in this fic for it, but it was enough that I find myself really, really wishing there'd been more, because I liked what the author had built a lot. I loved it most of all for that world-building, but also it's really soothing to read fics where Loki's family stands by him and treats him kindly as well, making this fic a balm on my soul when I needed it.

They Are. We Wish They Weren't by Emerald Embers (emeraldembers), thor/loki, fluff, 1.8k
    The Avengers deal with their greatest PR disaster of all; hot alien incest.
    So, after the previous fic, I needed something more light-hearted and joyful, which this fic delightfully provided me with! It's a cute piece, where Thor and Loki are on Midgard and don't understand the whole "no making out with your brother in public" thing, no matter how many times it's explained to them. There's nothing about it that's not pure fluff and warmth, which I seriously needed right about then.

when sunshine turns to rain by versy, thor/loki, fluff, mortal au, 1.9k
    The best spot on their private island, in Thor’s opinion, is the daybed on a square piece of decking behind the main house.
    Ahhhh, sometimes you find those fics where the writing doesn't even need to head into sexytimes territory to be delicious and super hot, sometimes just a kiss pressed to a knee or Thor's hand having drifted to between Loki's legs while they sleep or pressing Loki up against a wall to kiss him, sometimes that's more than enough right there. There's something almost dream-like in the writing of this modern AU fic, where their family is on vacation on an island, where the days pass lazily and with a breezy tone, yet there's a pull between the characters, Thor is uncomplicated, while Loki is sharp and biting, but not so wounded, and it works wonderfully. I let out one of those long, happy sighs when I finished because it's short, but it's so good for me.

Cognitive Recalibration mischievouschan, thor/loki + avengers, NSFW, fix it fic, fluff, 22.8k
    Upon returning to Asgard, Loki is finally able to break free from the Other's control. Reunited with his brother as his old self, they head back to Earth to join forces with the rest of the Avengers, wreaking havoc and forging new friendships along the way. In which Loki is a BAMF who everybody ends up loving and Coulson lives!
    You know what you want sometimes? A fic that just immediately fixes absolutely everything. Fuck you all if you can't understand why I wanted some fluff that didn't even bother trying to draw the tension out, nope, instead this author went straight for the fixing things and giving me warmth and fluff. When Loki and Thor get back to Asgard, Loki's still unhinged, which winds up in Thor having to attack him, which finally knocks some sense into him and knocks the control of the Other out of his head and, voila!, the Loki that Thor used to know is back. Then there's cuddling in the bath (CUDDLING IN THE BATH, FUCK YOU ALL, I LOVE THAT KIND OF THING) and sexytimes and Loki apologizing for all the shit he's pulled and then they go back to meet up with the Avengers again because Loki wants to make reparations and then they're gonna get married and ahhhhh I just rolled around in the fluff because that's what I wanted. Sometimes I don't want my heart crushed all the time, okay. Sometimes I want Loki being sweet and Thor being happy to have his baby brother back and the Avengers just kind of rolling with it.

Hot by Rosalie1.0, thor/loki, NSFW, fluff, 2.4k
    "Thor's hands were winding their way into Loki's hair, effectively messing it up from its usual neatness. A few wisps escaped and stuck to Loki's forehead because of the sweat accumulating it there. Suddenly everything was so, unbearably hot."
    Sometimes you just need pwp fic where Loki and Thor are in a library for whatever reason and Thor backs Loki up against the bookshelves and they have sex in the quiet library. It's not a harsh or sharp fic, it's not meant to be, and perhaps it uses too many epithets, but it's something happy and lightly teasing and just about making me feel better when I needed it in this fandom. It's the kind of fic you have to be in the right frame of mind for, I think, but when you want something comforting, when you want something that's about fluff and sex up against bookshelves and everything is good and right between the characters, then this could work for you. p.s. whatever, I'm totally weak to Thor being kind of an obnoxious but lovable jerk sometimes.

Blue by lies_d -, thor/loki, nsfw, jotunn!loki, pregnant!loki, fluff, 1.1k
    Thor and Loki are trying for a baby, but Loki has to be in Jotun form to conceive.
    I'm pretty sure I've read this fic before and maybe even recommended it, but I assume it wasn't on AO3? Maybe on tumblr or the kinkmeme? Either way, whatever, I love this fic. Thor and Loki trying to conceive a kid, which isn't going so well, because they don't really know much about Jotunn biology, but they want this kid and they want to tie themselves together forever, so that Thor's position as Crown Prince can't force them apart, and that's all SUPER DELICIOUS for me. But what I really wound up loving about this piece was the physical intimacy between the characters, how everything was about touching and love, even when they were frustrated or Loki was all sharp edges and stinging thorns, it's about how Loki loathes his Jotunn form and doesn't want to be seen in it, while Thor thinks everything about him is Loki, so he loves that form just as much. Basically, this fic exists just to make me happy and fill my heart with love.

Journeys End in Lovers Meeting by LaughterNeverDies, thor/loki, pregnant!loki, fluff, 3.2k
    Many years have passed by these two brothers, and many stars have died within this time. Loki and Thor, now bound together as king and consort, are blessed with a precious child which grows within Loki's Jotun womb. This is a story about the frailty of life and the embrace of death, and everything in between.
    I think this was the last of the super fluffy fics I needed today (well, they wound up being posted across a couple of days, but) and I definitely felt like my world had been righted a bit. Again, this is one of those stories that you'll want to save for when you're in the right frame of mind for it, because it starts out with Thor fussing over pregnant!Loki, who's totally sane and squishy!Loki now, then Loki giving birth to the baby, and everything is sweetness and light in this universe. They're back in Asgard, Thor is king, Loki's sane and in a good mood always, and everything works out and is sunshine and roses. Not for everyone, but I was having a terrible, grumpy day due to my shark week hormones raging and I was like FUCK IT I AM READING THE SWEETEST FLUFFIEST FIC I CAN GET MY FUCKING HANDS ON and then I felt better and I like to think others may as well.

Loki's Plan B by kyuunokitty, thor/loki, pregnant!loki, fluff, 22.7k
    When Loki hides himself in Midgard he ends up watching far too much daytime TV which is where he gets the idea for his Plan B. A plan so brilliant it will allow him to take his rightful place as ruler of Asgard in just 9 months.
    Okay, this fic. The writing is rough around the edges, it could use a good scrub from a beta brush, and it's definitely the kind of cracky premise you just have to roll with, but the premise is--Loki is hanging out on Midgard to rest up for awhile and is bored, so he ends up watching a lot of daytime tv, which gives him a great idea for manipulating his way back into having the throne of Asgard. So, sure enough, Loki gets Thor to knock him up and then proceeds to secretly hate him sooooo much and not realize he loves him kind of a lot and it's just pregnancy hormones sending him for a loop and fuck all of these Avengers except maybe Steve Rogers, he's the only one Loki doesn't want to rip the face off of, except he has to try to pretend that this isn't a huge plot, so seriously his fucking life. And there's a certain charm to this fic, it hits all the tropes along the way and that's exactly what I wanted, because it's cute and Loki's life is hard and of course he's unwilling to admit how much he loves Thor and I'm pretty sure the entire point of the fic is cracky fluff. Apparently, I still need more of that in my life, because I ate this up like it was candy.

Afterglow by onapage -, thor/loki + odin + frigga, mildly nsfw, fluff, ~1k
    "Brother, what mischief is this?" He lifted his hand to inspect the coruscating light outlining his fingers. The glow seemed to emanate from Loki's come on his hands, but it continued in random pattern over his entire skin. With his clean hand, he traced a pattern over his nipple and stomach he knew Loki drew not long ago. Most worryingly, the light engulfed his cock.
    Oh, this was absolutely fun and darling and light-hearted without being saccharine. It's a bit on the cracky side, but the author does really well with it and turned it into pure delight, when Thor and Loki literally start to glow after their first time together and kind of freak out because Loki doesn't know how to fix it. Where the fic just really makes it a delight is in the way they react to it--Loki's too out of it from having been well laid to really notice it at fist, face still buried in the pillows so he doesn't see it, while Thor's like, hrm, this is weird, but not the weirdest thing ever, then cue freak outs because Loki's WTF IS THIS CURSE, and then EVEN BETTER the hilarity of Odin and Frigga wondering why their sons haven't been seen in the last couple of days and... well. That's an awkward conversation when it happens. Awkward and HILARIOUS. There are lines I really want to quote from that final conversation between them all (which manages to not give me secondhand embarrassment, bless this author) but I fear they'd spoil it--just... that scene was definitely a gift for me. I dearly loved pretty much EVERYONE in this fic!

amrun aew by dimmey [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, mortal au (i think?), fluff, 2k
    How slightly strange it still felt to wake up in the morning like this and the man lying next to him, whose arms he had fallen asleep in the night before, was the one he had played with as a child.
    This was pure domestic fluff that warmed my fannish heart and made me ridiculously happy. There's sleepy mornings and Loki wearing Thor's shirt and making breakfast and the sense of them being the only two people in the world, which is one of those things that... it's not always for everyone, but sometimes (especially when I'm reading a lot of more ouchy things) that's exactly what I want and this fic delivered wonderfully. There's also just enough of Loki being glib and Thor being completely genuine with him that it still felt like these characters, rather than just fluff with their names attached. Oh, it's still sweet!Loki, but the kind where I can still see it as him, which is what I wanted, ahhhh.

untitled by thisdorkyblogthing [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, nsfw, fluff, ~1k
    Loki was so beautiful like this, arching and writhing under Thor, clinging onto him as though if he were to loosen his grip in the slightest he would float away.
    I feel like there hasn't been enough fluff in fandom lately, so this was a really welcome fic to find. Sweet, intimate sex and marriage proposals and Thor thinks Loki is just the most beautiful thing ever and Loki has trouble accepting love, but wants it and finally manages to drag some acceptance out of himself and just. It's exactly what I needed in this fandom lately.

Birthing Day by Asgardian Vampire (MetalliKirk), thor/loki, fluff, 1.5k
    Thor brings his daughter Astrid a present on her birthday; Loki shows his approval.
    Speaking of needed fluff fic, this is another that I read for the pure, pure waffiness and how it doesn't pretend to be anything else. It's for when you're in the mood for exactly this, for Thor and Loki with a baby daughter, and a light bit of smut. It's pure softness and comfort food fic when you need it.

Five times Odin tried to get Loki hitched for personal gain, and the ONE time he succeeded. by Wordbytes, thor/loki + avengers + other asgardians + mentions of loki/other, fluff, 3.9k
    “I do not understand this,” Thor grumbled, folding his arms over his chest insolently. “Why must you do this to my brother?”
    One more fluffy thing I needed today, okay. And this was pure, fluffy crack fic that just gleefully embraced the fandom tropes of it. Loki being almost married off, Thor's sabotaging of things in increasingly wild and over the top ways, Odin's constant headache with all of this shit--it was entirely cute and a good time if you want something silly and sweet. It's got all soft edges, but it's deliberately so--hence the embracing of the crack and fannish tropes. It's also six scenes and not quite 4k words, so each chapter is less than a thousand words, which means this goes very quickly, each one is very brief, but I think any longer with them and it would have taken away from the fluff of the piece. More comfort food for when you want it!

Loki is a little shit for the nth time but that’s what we’re all here for, so, eh, fuck it. P.S. there’s also porn by thisdorkyficthing, thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, pregnant!loki, fluff, 84.9k
    Guilt bubbled up in his belly, not for the first time since he decided he needed to find a way to get out of Jotunheim permanently, but it was worse now that his plans seemed to be falling into place. For all his faults, Loki loved his father and knew he had his reasons to try and shelter him. Loki felt bad about having to trick him, but he’d never let Loki go otherwise. Asgard was going to be his home. Whether anyone else liked it or not.
    First Rec: I've been reading this fic for awhile, but every time I would just about catch up so that I could write a proper rec, it would update again and I'd wait to read it first because this fic is just pure, sheer fun! I grin my way through every chapter of this fic, for the way it just whole-heartedly embraces being a light-hearted, flirty, gleeful little shit Loki and with Thor being frustrated, eventually snapping to fuck into Loki like he's been goading Thor into it, until they finally settle into this adorable, banter-laden relationship that they clearly both enjoy the hell out of. It's just so much fun to watch them antagonize each other at first, with Loki a visiting Jotunn prince who abuses his diplomatic position, until Thor snaps and finally fucks him, like Loki's been winding him up for. And it's even more fun when the tables are turned on Loki, because Thor is always more bitten off than Loki can chew.

But it's my favorite when they settle into a secret relationship, where Loki continues to goad Thor on, but it's a friendlier sort of way, where they're both open about how much they enjoy fucking, how much Loki really enjoys Thor's cock and how much Thor really enjoys Loki's warm, wet folds, when Loki is ever seductive and Thor is ever willing to just charge right ahead or smash things, which turns Loki on more than he'd like to admit sometimes. It's a relationship that embraces the tropes of the fandom, but without sacrificing that sharp sense of utter glee I have while reading this, mixing it together with the warm-hearted joy of the writing. This dynamic they have right here, changed a little because this is an AU fic where they're not brothers, this is why I keep coming back to this fandom, and it's just all the better because, oh, man, I can never get enough of intersex!Loki with a cunt that Thor loves as much as I do. Like, seriously, I will never, ever read enough of Thor thoroughly enjoying it, whether with his cock or his tongue, while Loki basks in the attention and Thor's desire for him.

Which, by the way, is some pretty satisfying porn that comes with it because of that! There's a lot of sex in this fic, but I love each and every scene of it, both when they first have almost hatesex and when it later morphs into an energetic more mutually enthusiastic sex. I love that these two are just constantly fucking and I love that there's other stuff that goes on occasionally, too! Thor fighting in a tournament and, mmm, warrior god!Thor is my favorite. Plus supportive!Frigga! Nice!Laufey who would storm the castle if his darling son was being mistreated! So much fun and it's just 24k (so far) of pure joy. ♥
    Second Rec: I've recommended this fic before, so this is more of an update rec, as this fic tends to get updated fairly regularly and it's one of those fics that helps keep me on a fannish even keel because I really need happy, fluffier things! And that's what this fic happily embraces, even as the characters start to twist themselves around a bit as they realize it's not just fucking around anymore, but that maybe feelings are starting to get involved here. But you know things will work out, it's the kind where it's just simply, joyfully fun to watch the characters and their antics!

Plus, there are always more sex scenes, sometimes even within the same chapter there's more than one--there's one chapter that has a fast and furious scene, which was up against the wall, and I'm serious, I will never tire of Thor actually being strong enough to just hold Loki up and fuck into him right there and there's hardly any strain for it. Then, within the same chapter, there was a sweeter, softer scene--not that it was without its snark--where Thor took his time and Loki enjoyed that, too. My two favorite things! Combined with how eager and greedy Loki's cunt is for Thor's fock, how it aches and is wet practically at just the thought of him. I love this with a ridiculous passion because I love Loki being attracted to Thor, I love that it gets them to fuck constantly, and I love how nice it is, how much happier this fic is than so much of the more ouchy fic out there. And everything here is just ridiculously cute and fun and charming and I enjoy it immensely.
    Third Rec: I've also recommended this fic before, but there's been a significant amount of updates to it that, whatever, I do what I want, Thor. Because, oh, man, if I didn't have enough affection for this fic already, now there's Loki going into heat and getting pregnant. Bless, bless, bless. There's some lovely porn as well, when Loki's in the middle of his heat and just wants Thor's cock in him now and so I really appreciated that (because it was super hot, especially when Loki was fucking himself with his own hand in desperation, then the utter desperation for a good fuck, the intensity of it and how much Loki just wants it now, that is all really, really delicious to me), but I just love how much fun the fic as a whole is! The pining for each other is done with such obvious affection that it's joyful to watch when Thor is sent to Midgard and Loki returns to Jotunheim. Everything about this fic is a total scream and I could have easily read another 20k in one sitting, for how much this fic just pulls me right in and won't let me go. It's one of those fics that cheers me up when I need something fun. ♥
    Fourth Rec: There is a tag on this fic that says: "Everything is Happy and Nothing Hurts AU", which is pretty much spot on. I've recommended this fic a few times before, but there's been a significant amount of updating since then and I wanted to write a better rec for the fic as a whole, especially because the point it's ended on at the moment (chapter 29) is a pretty good place of resolution. Not that I wouldn't be happy to have more, of course! Just that I feel like it has enough resolution to appeal to those who might not otherwise want to read a long running WIP fic for fear of nothing ever getting resolved until the very end. Because that's not what this fic is! This, as the tag says, is a happy AU where everything is fun and light-hearted and nothing ever hurts, it's a joy for those who want something long to read but who don't want their hearts crushed while doing so.

The entire point of the fic is what it excells at: Being a slice of life series of events of these two dumb gods, who flirt with each other, who we see the beginning of their relationship and its development into real feelings and Loki getting pregnant and how they figure their shit out in a happy, positive, fluffy sort of way. The fic is marvelously paced in the way nothing lingers too long and the writing just smoothly sails along, so you have this story where time and their dynamic keeps progressing forward, it's never spent too long on their pining just to pad things out or force the story to a longer length. It's never spent too much time repeating itself or forcing the characters into the same pattern of events over and over, just to make it longer. Each step forward truly is a step forward, it considers the history of what they've already gone through. A nd that may not sound important, but in a fluff fic that's almost 70k now? It's very important!

And the fic is definitely fluffy! It's pure comfort to read, nothing makes me feel good like sitting down with a fic that I know is meant to make me happy, while still being genuinely fun to read! Loki is still a little shit, but he loves Thor. Thor is still kind of an obnoxious dick, but he's better! It's a fic that wholly embraces the softer, fluffier kind of characterization, which is why you want to read it, because it will make your heart warm and happy. Also there is porn! The kind of delicious porn where they're constantly fucking and Loki enjoys Thor's cock ridiculous amounts and Thor enjoys Loki's cunt, like that is a magic mixture that will never, ever get old. The sex is delicious for its own sake, but it's also used to show how much Thor loves paying attention to Loki, who basks in it, who enjoys Thor's attention on his body and it's just. Ahhhhh, it makes me happy in my heart, okay.

Five times Thor thought someone was flirting with his wife, and the one time they really were. by Wordbytes, thor/loki + other asgardians + avengers, jotunn!loki, younger!loki, arranged marriage, fluff, 2.k
    Thor might be a bit possessive. I could be entirely wrong about this, but something tells me otherwise.
    This fic is entirely about the cliches and tropes of fanon characterizations, as well as each scene is often times more a summary of an idea than an active fic, but if you're in the mood for something light-hearted and fluffy, this fic is an easy read and very sweet. It put a smile on my face every time Thor was posessive or jealous of Loki's attentions--even in a mostly platonic way--being on anyone else, the author striding the line between their arranged marriage being sexless for now because Loki's too young and the potential that it will be romantic in the future, when he's grown enough. It's cute and fun, which is just what I needed today!

For Thee Who is Most Worthy by babychan, thor/loki + other asgardians, kid!thor + kid!loki, intersex!loki + intersex!odin, fluff, 5k
    Loki always ends up playing the role of “princess” when playing with Thor and his friends, but does anyone really know why that is? Kidfic. AU
    There are a few too many epithets and focus on physical descriptors in this fic, but it's otherwise so charming! The writing has a lot of potential and could go a lot of really great places, so I definitely want lots more from this author! This fic also blends adorableness with just enough crack to be cute, which is not always an easy balance to achieve--as well as that I genuinely love a lot of the things presented here, like references to intersex!Odin. That's actually something I would love to see explored more, if a fic ran with how the mythology has him as half-Jotunn himself. But, oh, in this fic it's the Thor & Loki interaction that's the real treat, as they're both such spoilted little shits and they have this ridicu8lously close relationship that is absolutely perfect. Manipulative Loki and tempestuous, adoring Thor? OMG BABIES. So darling and happy-making and I'm weak to these things.

Floating by TheVineSpeaketh, thor/loki + other asgardians, fluff, 3.2k
    And really, he wasn’t floating. But Thor made him feel that way, with his hair tightly braided in places, the plaits shimmering under the dull candlelight above them. He made him feel lightheaded with his well-fitted tunic of a deep maroon that grasped every inch of him like a starved lover. And Loki took another drink, because he shouldn’t be so suddenly and ridiculously attracted to his older brother, and shouldn’t be so excited by his admittedly unusual state of dress.
    This is a short fic and the beginning is a bit rough, but there is so much potential here and I want to see more from this author! Once the fic gets going, there are some lovely moments--Loki's speech struck me as just the right amount of flowery without going overboard, as well as Thor's response in actions and words after that were great! It's a delightful piece with some solid characterization, just the thing if you're in the mood for a bit of light-hearted fare.

An Obligatory Loki in Chains Fic by thisdorkyficthing, [ tumblr + mobile ver. ], thor/loki, mildly nsfw, jotunn!loki, war prize!loki, fluff, mild bondage, loki in chains, 2.2k
    "All yours." Sif handed him the chain, attached to an overly proud looking Jotunn runt, the one who’d been giving them more trouble than entire armies of full fledged frost giants ever could. He was beaten and bloodied, nothing worse than the injuries Thor had. He couldn’t help but wonder how his men had finally managed to capture and put the magic stifling cuffs and collar on him. He gave the chain a tug, making the runt stumble forward and temporarily knock the cool expression from his face. He regained himself quickly, looking Thor right in the eyes, almost challenging him to keep eye contact.
    Screaming about it, yes. Loki as a war prize in chains and Thor the warrior prince who claims him and then there's seductive little shit Loki and cheerful dick Thor and banter. This is everything I wanted from this prompt, SO MUCH FUN and porn! They're both such amazing dicks, I love these dummies and I love thisdorkyficthing for writing this, because IT IS A TOTAL SCREAM, she is amazing for how much gleeful fun I have while reading her fic. And after that gifset of Jotunn!Loki in chains being handed over to Thor on Vanaheim that went around tumblr, I NEEDED THIS and it was provided beautifully, especially when you realize just exactly what Loki was doing by being so flashy about everything and how Thor is obnoxiously cheerful as fuck about it and just. as;ldfjkalskj oh my Norse asshole babies, I love them so much.

Nine Lives (chapter 2 - Loki and Thorgi, Dog of Thunder) by amberfox17, thor/loki + brief tony, dog!thor, humor, fluff, 1.9k for this chapter
    Tony Stark shows up at Loki's door with a rather fat corgi and an explanation involving the words 'Thorgi' and 'Dog of Thunder'. Fluffy crack fic.
    There were probably three separate points while reading this chapter where I got a case of the giggles and had to pause in my reading just to get it out of my system. The fic hits all the right notes and tropes I wanted to see while still keeping them sharp and fresh to read, which is exactly the kind of touch this fic needs. There's also so much affection for animals in the writing and affection for the characters and great comedic timing and even a great Tony voice in the beginning of the fic! But one of my favorite moments--not that I didn't have a lot of favorite moments, especially with all the giggling I was doing--is Loki's thoughts on Thor being a corgi of all things, how that might have been weird to see because it doesn't fit the image of Thor, why this genuinely worked for me with this author's deft hand. But also there's a heart-touchingly lovely penultimate scene and then a perfect ending, too. Hilarious and adorable, this fic was everything it needed to be.

Something to Treasure by thescentofwhiteroses [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki (pre-slash?), fluff, ~1k
    "Are you really going to be gone for an entire year?” Loki asked plaintively, tucked against Thor’s side on his bed, green eyes wide with worry.
    This is just super, super fluffy. Like, all things warm-hearted and cuddly and adorable! It's literally young teenagers cuddling in bed together because Thor is leaving for a year and Loki will miss him and Thor will miss Loki, so there will be mutual pining, but at least they have a little bit of time together here. It's warm and sleepy and one of those fics that's a good read for when you want something to ease the pain the rest of the fandom causes or the new trailers cause, just absolutely embracing the warmth of it with both arms. If you want cuddles, this is a cute piece for them! And, boy, do I sometimes want that, when this fandom threatens to break my heart.

Pastries by Runie (Runic), thor/loki, fluff, war prize!loki, jotunn!loki, ~1k
    So, loki's-gspot posted this on tumblr: Jotun!Loki is given to thor as a sex slave and anticipates all the horrible things Thor’s gonna do to him because he’s heard of odinson’s reputation with giants but when he gets to Asgard and meets thor finally all thor wants is someone to watch him practice training with mjolnir and eat pastries with The end
    This is adorable and perfect, the best way I've ever seen this trope turned on its head! I was practically wiggling around in glee by the end because it was just so charming and delightful and good for me. It takes the prompt and makes it warm-hearted and sweet and just pure fun, I was so glad to see this one. ♥

The Night Before by kingloptr [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW, fluff, 1.5k
    “Thor. We’re to be married in about 12 hours you cannot—” Thor cut off Loki’s complaining with a swift and well placed kiss, and Loki tasted like sweet fruits and starlight, magic and royal mead.
    This was pure fluff that I'm still desperately in need of because it just makes me feel better, dammit. This isn't going to be for everyone, if you're more into sharp and jagged edges, this is 180 degrees in the opposite direction, which means I loved the super fluffy, sugary tone, all the more so because this is the way before their wedding and they're just happy and in love and fucking right there on the floor. That's all I ask for and this made me happy to read, ahhh!

Day 2: Cuddling by thejammys, thor/loki + children, pregnant!loki, fluff, 2.2k
    Thor comforts his pregnant, insecure husband.
    Have I mentioned in the last five minutes how very fond I am of these characters and the light-hearted stuff that can come out of this universe and that, fuck you all, I love pregnant!Loki like I love little else? Because if I haven't, I can totally mention all that again. This is a sweet, light-hearted fic that's full of tropes (which are not always bad things) and it's meant for when you're in the mood for something fluffy, like Thor comforting Loki when he's feeling uncomfortable in his own skin because it's getting towards the end of his pregnancy with Valki. And, okay, I'm weak to Thor having a fondness for pregnant!Loki because I can buy that he enjoys the idea of Loki carrying their child, that he's been claimed in such a way, that they're bonded through this. Between the cute comfort and pregnant!Loki complaining and Thor being all, I would have you like this any time, this was good for me.

Cognitive Recalibration mischievouschan, thor/loki + avengers, NSFW, fix it fic, fluff, 22.8k
    Upon returning to Asgard, Loki is finally able to break free from the Other's control. Reunited with his brother as his old self, they head back to Earth to join forces with the rest of the Avengers, wreaking havoc and forging new friendships along the way. In which Loki is a BAMF who everybody ends up loving and Coulson lives!
    You know what you want sometimes? A fic that just immediately fixes absolutely everything. Fuck you all if you can't understand why I wanted some fluff that didn't even bother trying to draw the tension out, nope, instead this author went straight for the fixing things and giving me warmth and fluff. When Loki and Thor get back to Asgard, Loki's still unhinged, which winds up in Thor having to attack him, which finally knocks some sense into him and knocks the control of the Other out of his head and, voila!, the Loki that Thor used to know is back. Then there's cuddling in the bath (CUDDLING IN THE BATH, FUCK YOU ALL, I LOVE THAT KIND OF THING) and sexytimes and Loki apologizing for all the shit he's pulled and then they go back to meet up with the Avengers again because Loki wants to make reparations and then they're gonna get married and ahhhhh I just rolled around in the fluff because that's what I wanted. Sometimes I don't want my heart crushed all the time, okay. Sometimes I want Loki being sweet and Thor being happy to have his baby brother back and the Avengers just kind of rolling with it.

The Eyes are the Windows to the Soul by PadawanBrittany, thor/loki, jotunn!loki, crossdressing, fluff, arranged marriage, 3.6k
    AU. Prince Loki wants to attend the Prince Thor's mighty feast, but cannot go looking as the Jötunn prince that he is. At the same time, Thor makes a startling revelation.
    Speaking of how sometimes I just really need some fluff and good old-fashioned "Thor and Loki are arranged to be married, but they don't get along, despite secretly being in love with each other, they're just both kind of dicks to each other because they think the other doesn't like them" fic. I love this kind of thing and it also involves Loki crossdressing and Thor being like WHO IS THAT GORGEOUS CREATURE THAT REMINDS ME OF SOMEONE I CAN'T QUITE FIGURE OUT LET ME GO CHAT HER UP WOW SHE'S REALLY GORGEOUS AND SO INTERESTING EVEN WHEN SHE'S KIND OF A DICK TO ME and then they both realize, oh, they're kind of stupid for not realizing their mutual feelings earlier and, voila!, marriage. But then there's also a bit of kissing and the author clearly just had fun with this and it's hard for me not to get swept up in that fun. It's full of all the usual tropes, but I love those tropes, so I had fun with this fic.

Sweater Weather by Ariasangelsandroses, thor/loki, NSFW, pregnant!loki, intersex!loki, 6.5k
    Set post-Avengers. Loki and Thor have an established relationship (they're kinda married). Loki's pregnant with their first baby and Thor wants to take out his little lover to see fall for the first time, because they don't have it on Asgard.
    There are a couple of caveats with this fic, as it's a little rough around the edges and it's a much softer Loki, but! It gleefully embraces that this is a fluffy, happy fic with softer!Loki and all the tropes that come with it, making the fic entirely self-aware about it, which makes it so delightful for me. Loki is really pregnant and crabby but loves Thor, who is utterly doting on him and then they fuck. Like, that is a fic written practically just for me! Especially with Thor eating Loki's cunt and then Loki using the valley between his boobs to get Thor off! And then grand declarations between them! It's everything fun and fluffy and delightful that I could ask for! If you don't care for the tropes of this genre, it's not for you, but if you like them? SUPER FUN and a delightful read. I, of course, adored it.

The Deepest of Loves by mozzarellaroses, thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    "Dance with me, my queen?" The look Thor received for that statement was a very telling mix of disbelief, insult, and affection. "Call me that one more time and you'll be limping before you even start," Loki threatened lightly, unable to keep the laughter out of his voice or the smile off his face.
    Given all the angst and tragedy I read with this ship, sometimes I just want something fluffy. So, when I saw the prompt for this one, about a happy and cherished marriage between Thor and Loki, where everything is good and light, fuck yes, I jumped on that fucker like it was air I needed to breathe. And it's so sweet and so darling and so charming that I had a bit of a heartache afterwards, all the moreso because the author did a lovely job of keeping Thor and Loki's personalities intact, all things considered in such a happy, warm world. I may even have cooed a bit by the ending, because, ugh, FEELINGS. ♥

Where We've Come by badass-tiger, thor/loki, married au, fluff, 5k
    Loki is the second son of Laufey, betrothed to Thor, the first son of Odin. It takes a while for things to work out between them.
    This story is definitely on the fluffy, schmoopy side, even as Loki tries to keep hold of his dignity and protective walls. And, given this fandom and this ship, I read a lot of wrenching, angsty fic and sometimes I feel like NO MORE I NEED SOME FLUFF and then go seek out adorable AU fics where Thor and Loki get married to unite Asgard and Jotunheim. The writing could use a bit of tweaking and polishing, it feels a bit rushed, but it's got a charm and gave me a lot of warm and fuzzy feelings, the kind where I want to tell anyone who doesn't understand my pure and true love for this genre to fuck off already. I loved that this story was all about the two of them slowly... not entirely hating each other... then being won over despite themselves... and then maybe they were kind of in love with each other. Just, ahhhhh, this is what I needed today and bless the author for providing it.

They Are. We Wish They Weren't by Emerald Embers (emeraldembers), thor/loki, fluff, 1.8k
    The Avengers deal with their greatest PR disaster of all; hot alien incest.
    So, after the previous fic, I needed something more light-hearted and joyful, which this fic delightfully provided me with! It's a cute piece, where Thor and Loki are on Midgard and don't understand the whole "no making out with your brother in public" thing, no matter how many times it's explained to them. There's nothing about it that's not pure fluff and warmth, which I seriously needed right about then.

Blame it on your boss by dizbil, thor/loki + other mcu characters + background steve/tony, NSFW, human au, fluff, 26.2k
    There's a reason Loki never takes the subway, and of course, the first time he does, something bad is bound to happen. But he can not be late for his big day at work, Tony and Steve are not that comprehensive, and this tall blond guy is more than attractive. What's that smell in the air? Troubles? Definitely troubles and there is only one person Loki can blame: Thor. His boss.
    Ugh, I love modern AU fic (human AU fic? mortal AU fic? idk what I should really call/tag these as) and so finding a 26k one just dumped right in my lap? Yes, I snatched that up and read more than half of it in one sitting and then pretty much immediately came right back to it as soon as I woke up again the next day. It is an AU fic, so there's no faux-Shakespeare speak here, but I found that I surprisingly didn't miss it (for all that I'm just a touchy fussy about how it comes across in regular fic) because this was too much fun and there was a certain charm about the fic that kept me pulled in. It's hard to describe why that is, when everything I think to describe this fic makes it sound terribly cliche (but, then, I've always been fond of cliches and tropes in fic, they're popular for a reason, most times) and any quibbling I could do would seem to negate that I found that I just couldn't complain about anything here. Maybe it's not going to be for everyone, it's definitely an AU where a lot of cliche stuff happens, but I wanted that and there's a charisma about the way the author does it that worked for me.

But I think what really sold me on this fic was... as fun as Loki is when he's snarky and waspish and cutting, I need him to be matched up against a Thor who has a solid presence, who seems to take up all the space in whatever room he's in, because that's who Thor is, you can't help but notice him. This fic does a really good job of that! Loki can't help but notice him the first time they meet, can't help that instant attraction even when he doesn't want to be so attracted to Thor, he doesn't lose that snark even when he's clearly falling love, Loki can't help but be drawn to him whenever they're in the same room, can't hardly take his eyes of Thor. And this Thor is a bit arrogant and even smug at times, he knows the affect he has, how people gravitate to him and love him, he knows how Loki feels about him and enjoys that, but isn't cruel about it, because he loves genuinely, because he's not mean about it. That's not always an easy balance to achieve, but this author does so beautifully and I would read a hundred fics like this because OMG A SOLID THOR CHARACTERIZATION, sometimes I feel like I have to move mountains to find it!

Plus, omg, this fic had one of the hottest frottage scenes I've ready in awhile! I'm not always that into frottage, it has to be done in a certain way to really get to me (though, I could never put what that is into words), but whatever this author did, it worked for me. Even just the occasional mentions of what Loki would let (or even want) Thor do to him, the brief thoughts in his head, were hot. As was the time up against Thor's desk, where he told Loki to use [Thor's] hand to get himself off however he wanted. Or the build-up to the final sex scene, which was totally worth the wait! I love an author who knows how to put something off for just long enough that I'm totally ready for the resolution by the time it gets there, but not so much that it ends up being teasing or held off too long. This fic isn't going to be for everyone, but for me? It hit all the right buttons that I wanted hit, it gave me a Thor that I loved, and it was hot when it needed to be. That's all I can ask.

God of Comfortsnuggles by jeansouth, thor + avengers + loki, fluff, 1.9k
    The five times Thor had to comfort someone after he was right, and the one time they all got together and enjoyed it.
    Okay, this was just pure and total fluff, sunshine, and warmth. I had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading about Thor being the big brother to the Avengers, since he couldn't big brother the hell out of Loki as much as he wanted to, his affections were spread across the team. And then there was even a bonus Loki scene at the end! And, with this fandom, sometimes you really just need some PURE FLUFF AND HAPPINESS and this fic was sheer fuzziness, which was exactly what I needed.

Child's Play by pluiedunord, thor & loki, kidfic, fluff, ~1k
    Young Thor and Loki play in the forest, and Loki wanders off. Big Brother Thor to the rescue.
    Bawwww, this was so cute! It's a short piece, just over 500 words and takes place when Thor and Loki are just little kids, Loki getting lost in the woods and Thor looking for him, totally fluffy and sweet and BAWWW SUCH ADORABLE BABIES. I was left with that warm, fuzzy feeling by the time it was done and sometimes I just really need to feel that in fandom again.

Five Crimes in the Name of Brotherhood by freakylemurcat, thor & loki + other asgardians, fluff, kidfic, 4.5k
    5 times Thor and Loki had moments of Epic Brohood, and 1 time they had an Epic Bro Sulk together because Odin caught them at something and made them scrub the latrines.
    SO THIS FIC IS AMAZING. It's a series of six times that Thor and Loki worked together, being adorable little shits together or adventurous little shits together, and I don't think I could have smiled harder, because my face hurt by the time I was done. They are adorable as children, but just as amazing when they're teenagers, and I love the way this author gives them all these different adventures to get into, these different beasts to fight, the way they banter with each other shows you can see how they get on each others' nerves but they always come back around to each other and, oh, it's SO GOOD. It's pure joy and laughter and utter delight to see these instances of their Epic Brotherhood.

Better Teamwork Through Dragon Hunting by LulaMadison, thor & loki + avengers, avenger!loki, fluff, 21k
    One big redemption arc later, Loki is no longer the enemy, but Thor is pretty much the only Avenger to trust or like him. When Odin requests the Avengers' presence on Asgard he orders a very reluctant, resentful Loki to do it instead, since Loki has a very unique knowledge of the secret paths between the Nine Realms. Unfortunately, Loki generally takes the ... scenic route between dimensions. So he has to guide six egotistical, volatile superheroes through the Nine Realms and all its otherworldly dangers, and somehow get them to Asgard alive. Thor is delighted - inter dimensional road trip! Magnificent quests! The perfect bonding experience for his BFFs and little brother! Everyone else ... less so.
    Okay, this fic definitely starts out as cracky (in a really lovely and heart-warming and happy way!) and it never entirely moves away from that, especially with Loki's characterization being so much softer and nicer than in canon. But! It's SO MUCH FUN and the author does a fantastic job at being charming and working with a larger cast and keeping them all balanced and then having them all go on EPIC ADVENTURES. And, eventually, Loki is kind of a total little shit again, which is delightful to see, especially when he's either telling horrible stories or when he's tricking them all into being on his side, but the best part is definitely the team dynamics with everyone and the sense of... this is a story that's not just on Earth, but travelling through various Realms and fighting fire dragons and meeting dwarves and trolls along the way. I dearly wish we got more of that sort of thing in fandom and this fic was really satisfying for it!

Five Times Midgardians Misunderstood Asgard Cultural References and One Time They Didn't. by Haldane, thor & loki + avengers, cultural differences, fluff, 2k
    Five times Thor and/or Loki used an Asgardian reference that caused confusion, and one time nobody had any doubt at all what it meant.
    This is another prompt that I love the idea of! Five times (well, six) where Loki and Thor's references fly over the heads of the other Avengers, rather than the other way around, which is something I've thought should happen more often in fic. And these are totally adorable and I loved the bit of world building this does for Asgard (and I love that Loki was often friendly with the Avengers, while still being a big bag of dicks to them) and just really fun!

Ailing by Ariyana, frigga & loki, baby!loki, fluff, 1.1k
    Some times even a Queen has trouble figuring out what a fussy baby needs or wants.
    This fic started out a bit rough, but I was intrigued by the promise of Frigga and baby Loki cuteness, so I kept reading, and it smoothed out quickly and, oh, this was full of SO MANY FEELS. The author strikes that perfect balance of something that's so sweet and darling, but with just enough weight to not be too cutesy for me. Instead, it's all about this family who have just brought in this new addition and who's fussy and they don't know why, until they figure it out, and it's just. It's happy and touching and good and all about the warm and fuzzy family feelings. SO GOOD FOR ME.

Fluff by sabulum-p, thor & loki, lokitty, fluff, ~1k
    Shapeshifted or not, Thor always recognizes his brother, and he will not let the simple fact that Loki is now a cat get in the way of what he has to say.
    You can also find this fic on tumblr, along with the art that inspired it.
    This fic kind of made me want to cry a little, despite that it's not actually an unhappy piece. It's just so... so full of feelings for me! Loki is stuck in cat form, which means Thor can pick him up and pet him while he talks to Loki about all the things he's wanted to tell him. You know, after Loki is done clawing at him and exhausting himself first. Thor tells him of the grief his seeming death caused, how they all mourned for him, how much they all missed him, that he's still so loved, and my heart ached for how much they suffered without him, for how Thor finally has a chance to freely touch his brother again. It's short but managed to stir up so many feelings in me that I loved it.

A Place Called Home by cavaleira, thor/loki + kids, NSFW, fluff, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, pregnant!loki, domestic, 5.6k
    A hectic day in the life of Loki, Thor, and their five kids (with a sixth on the way). Pure fluff.
    This was just so very satisfying for how fluffy and warm-hearted and good it was. I don't think I stopped smiling the entire time I was reading and I genuinely felt all warm and fuzzy afterwards! The brood of kids they have and all the little domestic details are perfect and then you add in the happy, warm, intimate, joyful sex where Loki rides Thor and they both love Thor's promises to keep fucking him until they have even more kids and I just-- I practically melted into goo. The good kind of goo! It's fluffy, but it's so very them, in a happier life and I love this completely without irony. It's a fantastic read and I can't recommend it enough if you just want to be straight up happy in the soul.

The Tribulations of Courting a Trickster by Runie (Runic), thor/loki, mildly nsfw, fluff, 1.2k wip
    Thor tries to court Loki. Loki decides to make it difficult.
    kingloptr had a prompt on tumblr about Thor giving Loki all these amazing gifts, who says a polite thanks, and it kind of drives Thor batty. It's deliberately and whole-heartedily a fluffy story and, you know what? Sometimes the way to my heart is through the fluffiest fic you can possibly write for me! So, a fic where Thor presents Loki with lavish and expensive gifts in an attempt to court him, only to be met with the bare minimum of thanks, yet this doesn't deter Thor? Give me all of it! Especially because each chapter has a brief bonus scene to show that Loki actually does greatly enjoy the gifts, this just warms my heart. Plus, I'm enjoying the gifts being tailored to Loki's likes! It's a wip for now, but the first two chapters are warm-hearted and fun, so I don't mind waiting for more.

Bifrost by 1954, thor/loki + background steve/tony, human au, fluff, 17.8k wip
    There's a beautiful stranger in town and Thor is hopelessly in love. Unfortunately for him, this stranger comes with secrets that will devastate them both. Or, in which Thor is a fumbling lovesick idiot and there's too much Norse mythology for an actual AU.
    Chapters 01-06: This fic started out a little rough for me, the Thor characterization took me awhile to get into, but... eventually, I got into the swing of the story and found myself greatly charmed by the interaction between Thor and Loki in this small-ish town, the way bits of Norse mythology were woven into their lives, the way they were clearly starting to fall for each other. Normally, I like established relationships, but sometimes there's something really fun in watching two people be instantly attracted to each other and slowly building that relationship up, especially in a modern/human AU setting like this. And the author does a really good job of that sense of... well, charming me! Their interactions in Loki's bookstore, the way Thor feels an instant connection to him when he sees him in the coffee shop, the way they keep running into each other, their first date, the emergency that Thor supports Loki through, all of it is just delightful and charismatic and I want the best for them here. And I actually kind of really love what the author did with Loki's other relationships, they surprised me and I found that I was intrigued about how the parallels to canon would run because of them. So! Charming writing, adorable relationship, and getting me to be intrigued? Yeah, I definitely want more of this one right now.
    Chapters 07-08: [ chapter 7 + chapter 8 ] - [NOTE: This is an update rec, so it will focus on/link to these chapters, rather than the beginning of the fic.] This is a continuation of the first six chapters posted on FFNET at the time of this rec. And I continue to enjoy the building of this relationship in this human AU fic! Chapter 7 focused on the Steve/Tony more than I would have thought, but it worked well to broaden the scope of the world these characters live in, which I always like in AU fics. I found that it's not intolerable to those that don't care for the ship, it's still in the background, but those who enjoy that ship will like it a lot, since there are cute moments.

Chapter 8 was definitely my favorite of the two, though, where Thor and Loki spend the day together and it's a montage of all the different places they go while in the city, the charming and delightfully happy way they're clearly falling in love with each other, woven together with some nicely done details of the places they go in New York. Often times, when an author tries to do a scene like that in a fic, it ends up being too much detail or not enough detail, it feels like they're trying too hard to move the story forward, but here... I don't know quite how to put it, but there was a natural flow to it for me, the way it didn't linger on anything, but still managed to sketch out a nicely detailed image in my mind's eye. And that's the tipping point for them, that's when they can't get home fast enough and can't stop touching each other and, oh, Thor's just totally gone on him and that makes the sex scene all the better. The writing is lovely and both characters want this, the way Loki knows what he wants and Thor just loves him so much already and is so wildly attracted to him and wants to fuck him and Loki also starts to come undone as he rides Thor and it's all super hot and so very, very good for me.

Creature Comforts by Xparrot, loki, lokitty, fluffy, 5k
    When Loki shifts back to his regular form, there is a girl staring at him.
    Ahhhh, cat!Loki is one of the greatest things this fandom has given us, which is usually in a more comedic tone, but this fic is amazing for being more serious and yet perfectly fitting with the movieverse. Loki escapes a battle in cat form and is taken in by a young girl and her father and, oh, it's filled with lovely details of Loki's magic and the way that works in feline form and the author breathes such life into the original characters, the young girl is such a delight, and, most especially, the half-formed thoughts of being taken care of in this form, wrapped up in a large red cap and strong but gentle fingers petting his ears, they just had my heart. This is a serious story, but it's also a light-hearted one, the balance between them perfectly done and, oh, what I wouldn't give for more of this.

Hot by Rosalie1.0, thor/loki, NSFW, fluff, 2.4k
    "Thor's hands were winding their way into Loki's hair, effectively messing it up from its usual neatness. A few wisps escaped and stuck to Loki's forehead because of the sweat accumulating it there. Suddenly everything was so, unbearably hot."
    Sometimes you just need pwp fic where Loki and Thor are in a library for whatever reason and Thor backs Loki up against the bookshelves and they have sex in the quiet library. It's not a harsh or sharp fic, it's not meant to be, and perhaps it uses too many epithets, but it's something happy and lightly teasing and just about making me feel better when I needed it in this fandom. It's the kind of fic you have to be in the right frame of mind for, I think, but when you want something comforting, when you want something that's about fluff and sex up against bookshelves and everything is good and right between the characters, then this could work for you. p.s. whatever, I'm totally weak to Thor being kind of an obnoxious but lovable jerk sometimes.

Mornings by DailyDrabble (EliraWinter), thor/loki, human au, fluff, ~1k
    Modern AU - Part of a morning with Thor and Loki.
    This is not even quite 300 words but, whatever, it has a modern AU with Thor and Loki, where Loki is totally not a fucking morning person (but guess who is) and an easy physical relationship and sleepy mornings and cheerful smiles and, ugh, it was just this really good, tasty little treat for me.

Day 2: Cuddling by thejammys, thor/loki + children, pregnant!loki, fluff, 2.2k
    Thor comforts his pregnant, insecure husband.
    Have I mentioned in the last five minutes how very fond I am of these characters and the light-hearted stuff that can come out of this universe and that, fuck you all, I love pregnant!Loki like I love little else? Because if I haven't, I can totally mention all that again. This is a sweet, light-hearted fic that's full of tropes (which are not always bad things) and it's meant for when you're in the mood for something fluffy, like Thor comforting Loki when he's feeling uncomfortable in his own skin because it's getting towards the end of his pregnancy with Valki. And, okay, I'm weak to Thor having a fondness for pregnant!Loki because I can buy that he enjoys the idea of Loki carrying their child, that he's been claimed in such a way, that they're bonded through this. Between the cute comfort and pregnant!Loki complaining and Thor being all, I would have you like this any time, this was good for me.

Of waiters (and protective husbands) by grimmie_me, thor/loki, NSFW, human au, fluff, homophobia, 5.2k
    For the following norsekink prompt: So, I'm sure that we've all been to that one restaurant with the waiter that bends over backwards to ensure the customer's satisfaction, only to have completely rude customers trample all over that kindness.
    This characterization isn't going to be for everyone, it's the kind where Loki doesn't have a single mean bone in his body and is rather emotionally fragile, but it's purposefully a happy au where he's married to Thor and everything is perfect and sweet and goopy in the way I crave sometimes. I had fun with this and, yeah, I picked it up for the sex and that was satisfying, too, when it was just as sappy and fluffy as everything else here! Massages and bathing together and married sex where Loki happily rolls over to open himself up for Thor--it's pure feel good fic in that way where I just... want to throw all the bitterness and anger and resentment out the window and write something that embraces the fluff so that everything is cotton candy sweet (even the angsty stuff is sweet) and this fic gave that to me. I definitely want more and more from this author!

And it's played on a table? by Lunik, thor & loki + steve & bucky, fluff, 1.4k
    There is no flyting in this game of "Table Tennis".
    So, this was totally adorable, with a take off a comment from Tom Hiddleston about how Loki couldn't be beat at table tennis, thing spinning this delightful story set back in Steve and Bucky's time, when they're travelling the world, and happen to meet Thor and Loki in a tavern, and wind up playing table tennis. It's just so fun and natural, not trying too hard, with Loki being especially fun to watch slowly get into the game, but also Thor just being Thor! And then the ending was just... a;sdlkfal;jk I wouldn't have expected this to work so well, but it really hit all the right buttons for me!

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 8 - Shopping by thisdorkyblogthing [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    Thor regretted his idea to show Loki the shops of Midgard deeply.
    Ahhh, this was so delightful and put such a smile on my face and was exactly what I needed today! I love, love Loki being a manipulative little shit, who probably tests Thor's patience (and then later rewards him for it, because that's how you keep someone patient with you) on purpose because it's hilarious to him and because he enjoys Thor's reactions to it. Plus Loki shopping! I love Loki shopping because he would be such a prince about it. ♥

Garnet by peppermintquartz, thor/loki (pre-slash or gen), pre-movie, fluff, 1.6k
    Snowflakes curl dreamily from the heavens and float to earth. Loki remembers their first hunt in the snow.
    This fic is the eighth part in a longer series, but I found that it stands well on its own, you can read it out of order if you wish.
    This is a really sweet fic about Thor and Loki as kids, when Thor drags them both out on their first hunt, which does about as well as you'd expect, because they're little trouble magnets. And I enjoyed that, despite that this was part of a larger Thor/Loki series, this is just sweet little baby brotherly stuff, because that makes sense for them at this point. They're still adorable and still little hellions and yet such sweet precious babies when they find themselves in over their heads. And I love it for the sense of adventure and how they're in a warrior's culture, just for the way it fills in the background of their childhood so delightfully.

Floating by TheVineSpeaketh, thor/loki + other asgardians, fluff, 3.2k
    And really, he wasn’t floating. But Thor made him feel that way, with his hair tightly braided in places, the plaits shimmering under the dull candlelight above them. He made him feel lightheaded with his well-fitted tunic of a deep maroon that grasped every inch of him like a starved lover. And Loki took another drink, because he shouldn’t be so suddenly and ridiculously attracted to his older brother, and shouldn’t be so excited by his admittedly unusual state of dress.
    This is a short fic and the beginning is a bit rough, but there is so much potential here and I want to see more from this author! Once the fic gets going, there are some lovely moments--Loki's speech struck me as just the right amount of flowery without going overboard, as well as Thor's response in actions and words after that were great! It's a delightful piece with some solid characterization, just the thing if you're in the mood for a bit of light-hearted fare.

His Blue Boy by blue_jack, thor/loki, arranged marriage, fluff, ~1k
    Fandral referred to Loki as his “Blue Boy,” which, considering how long they’ve been at war with Jotunheim, was far kinder than Thor had any reason to expect.
    This is a series of stand-alone fics, so each chapter can be read separately, you don't need to have read the others to read this one.
    Oho, more arranged marriage fic! And this is more of an overview type of fic, a bird's eye view of the relationship that developed between the characters over the years, told in a handful of moments and how Thor's apprasal of Loki grew from annoyance to mild interest to fondness. I enjoyed it because this Loki is difficult to read, yet it's not hard to see why Thor starts to like him, and I love that Thor is fine with being a fool, if that's what his feelings for Loki make him. And, ahhhh, the ending was so sweet and good!

cold war by cavaleira [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW, fluff, 2.1k
    featuring teenage dickwads in love, snow, tickling, and (of course) fucking
    Oh, god, asshole teenagers in love who go on adventures and fuck like rabbits. This is everything I need in life right here. The author does beautifully with balancing their little shit natures at this stage in their life with the happy, warm, feel-good air of it so that it's delightfully charming and the sex is delicious and there's snuggling for warmth and teenagers fucking like rabbits and they're such absolute brothers here and teenagers being horny little monkeys and it's the balm I needed after all the crushing feels in this fandom and teenagers fucking like hormonal hot messes. Everything is good and wonderful in this fic.

Cradle by catiepie182002, thor/loki, sick!loki, fluff, pre-movies, ~1k
    Loki is ill and Thor is doting.
    This is short, probably around 600 words, but I love when a fic knows not to push a premise too far--even if I would totally have read 100k of this kind of thing! It's only when Loki is sick that he lets Thor truly dote on him and it's ~600 words of sheer heart warming delight for it. Because Loki is one of those sick people that 99% of us can't stand--he's whiny, he's obnoxious, he's demanding, he's never happy, but he lets Thor sit with him and tell him stories and touch him and lets Thor pull Loki onto him for a giant body pillow, which, ugh, that's the best for me, because I fucking love it when the prickly character gets sick and stops being prickly because they're too miserable for it and Loki just lets Thor love him for awhile. The author does a fantastic job of selling it, too, without overdoing it, instead it's actually rather easy to see and just what I wanted.

untitled by by_copacetic, thor & loki + other asgardians, lokitty, fluff, ~1k
    Perfect. He regretted only that cats could not roll their eyes. He really shouldn’t have agreed to meet in a bar.
    OH MAN YES GOOD GOOD FIC GOOD AUTHOR GOOD FOR ME. Loki experiments with shapeshifting and gets himself stuck in the form of a small kitten, which Thor finds and takes care of? Yes. Yes, let me at that right this second. And this is perfect, because cat instincts creep up on Loki in a way that the author has beautiful comedic timing with them and doesn't push it too far, instead letting the reader fill in the blanks, so it makes it less cracky and more humorous with just some lacings of crack. Thor cheerfully taking care of kitty!Loki is just all kinds of wonderful and good for me as well, I can't tell you how much better this fic made me feel.

Destroyer of Plants by teracity, thor & loki + other thor characters, lokitty + dog!thor, fluff, 1.6k
    For all the affection Thor received from the neighbours, Loki seemed determined to match it with frustration. No fewer than five gardens had been destroyed quite singlehandedly by Loki, with even the tightest security measures proving no match for the elusive cat. It had led to grumblings and the name of ‘Destroyer of Plants’, all of which seemed to please Loki very much if his contented purring as Jane admonished him for yet another act of mischief was any indicator.
    Speaking of things I needed today! Cat!Loki and dog!Thor! Yes, give me that! Especially when they're Jane's pets and the premise is cracky, but surprisingly not OTT about it, instead being a surprisingly warm-hearted, sweet story of a sleek black cat's introduction into the giant golden labrador and his owner's life. So adorable as the puppy immediately takes to the cat, who tries to be dignified about it, who is a holy terror, but Thor just loves Loki anyway! It's, like. PURE RAINBOWS AND SUNSHINE in the way that I love without irony or guilty pleasure. It's just straight-up delight.

Loki is a little shit for the nth time but that’s what we’re all here for, so, eh, fuck it. P.S. there’s also porn by thisdorkyficthing, thor/loki + other thor characters, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, pregnant!loki, fluff, happy au, 84.9k
    Guilt bubbled up in his belly, not for the first time since he decided he needed to find a way to get out of Jotunheim permanently, but it was worse now that his plans seemed to be falling into place. For all his faults, Loki loved his father and knew he had his reasons to try and shelter him. Loki felt bad about having to trick him, but he’d never let Loki go otherwise. Asgard was going to be his home. Whether anyone else liked it or not.
    First rec: I've been reading this fic for awhile, but every time I would just about catch up so that I could write a proper rec, it would update again and I'd wait to read it first because this fic is just pure, sheer fun! I grin my way through every chapter of this fic, for the way it just whole-heartedly embraces being a light-hearted, flirty, gleeful little shit Loki and with Thor being frustrated, eventually snapping to fuck into Loki like he's been goading Thor into it, until they finally settle into this adorable, banter-laden relationship that they clearly both enjoy the hell out of. It's just so much fun to watch them antagonize each other at first, with Loki a visiting Jotunn prince who abuses his diplomatic position, until Thor snaps and finally fucks him, like Loki's been winding him up for. And it's even more fun when the tables are turned on Loki, because Thor is always more bitten off than Loki can chew.

But it's my favorite when they settle into a secret relationship, where Loki continues to goad Thor on, but it's a friendlier sort of way, where they're both open about how much they enjoy fucking, how much Loki really enjoys Thor's cock and how much Thor really enjoys Loki's warm, wet folds, when Loki is ever seductive and Thor is ever willing to just charge right ahead or smash things, which turns Loki on more than he'd like to admit sometimes. It's a relationship that embraces the tropes of the fandom, but without sacrificing that sharp sense of utter glee I have while reading this, mixing it together with the warm-hearted joy of the writing. This dynamic they have right here, changed a little because this is an AU fic where they're not brothers, this is why I keep coming back to this fandom, and it's just all the better because, oh, man, I can never get enough of intersex!Loki with a cunt that Thor loves as much as I do. Like, seriously, I will never, ever read enough of Thor thoroughly enjoying it, whether with his cock or his tongue, while Loki basks in the attention and Thor's desire for him.

Which, by the way, is some pretty satisfying porn that comes with it because of that! There's a lot of sex in this fic, but I love each and every scene of it, both when they first have almost hatesex and when it later morphs into an energetic more mutually enthusiastic sex. I love that these two are just constantly fucking and I love that there's other stuff that goes on occasionally, too! Thor fighting in a tournament and, mmm, warrior god!Thor is my favorite. Plus supportive!Frigga! Nice!Laufey who would storm the castle if his darling son was being mistreated! So much fun and it's just 24k (so far) of pure joy. ♥
    Second rec: I've recommended this fic before, so this is more of an update rec, as this fic tends to get updated fairly regularly and it's one of those fics that helps keep me on a fannish even keel because I really need happy, fluffier things! And that's what this fic happily embraces, even as the characters start to twist themselves around a bit as they realize it's not just fucking around anymore, but that maybe feelings are starting to get involved here. But you know things will work out, it's the kind where it's just simply, joyfully fun to watch the characters and their antics!

Plus, there are always more sex scenes, sometimes even within the same chapter there's more than one--there's one chapter that has a fast and furious scene, which was up against the wall, and I'm serious, I will never tire of Thor actually being strong enough to just hold Loki up and fuck into him right there and there's hardly any strain for it. Then, within the same chapter, there was a sweeter, softer scene--not that it was without its snark--where Thor took his time and Loki enjoyed that, too. My two favorite things! Combined with how eager and greedy Loki's cunt is for Thor's fock, how it aches and is wet practically at just the thought of him. I love this with a ridiculous passion because I love Loki being attracted to Thor, I love that it gets them to fuck constantly, and I love how nice it is, how much happier this fic is than so much of the more ouchy fic out there. And everything here is just ridiculously cute and fun and charming and I enjoy it immensely.
    Third rec: I've also recommended this fic before, but there's been a significant amount of updates to it that, whatever, I do what I want, Thor. Because, oh, man, if I didn't have enough affection for this fic already, now there's Loki going into heat and getting pregnant. Bless, bless, bless. There's some lovely porn as well, when Loki's in the middle of his heat and just wants Thor's cock in him now and so I really appreciated that (because it was super hot, especially when Loki was fucking himself with his own hand in desperation, then the utter desperation for a good fuck, the intensity of it and how much Loki just wants it now, that is all really, really delicious to me), but I just love how much fun the fic as a whole is! The pining for each other is done with such obvious affection that it's joyful to watch when Thor is sent to Midgard and Loki returns to Jotunheim. Everything about this fic is a total scream and I could have easily read another 20k in one sitting, for how much this fic just pulls me right in and won't let me go. It's one of those fics that cheers me up when I need something fun. ♥
    Fourth rec: There is a tag on this fic that says: "Everything is Happy and Nothing Hurts AU", which is pretty much spot on. I've recommended this fic a few times before, but there's been a significant amount of updating since then and I wanted to write a better rec for the fic as a whole, especially because the point it's ended on at the moment (chapter 29) is a pretty good place of resolution. Not that I wouldn't be happy to have more, of course! Just that I feel like it has enough resolution to appeal to those who might not otherwise want to read a long running WIP fic for fear of nothing ever getting resolved until the very end. Because that's not what this fic is! This, as the tag says, is a happy AU where everything is fun and light-hearted and nothing ever hurts, it's a joy for those who want something long to read but who don't want their hearts crushed while doing so.

The entire point of the fic is what it excells at: Being a slice of life series of events of these two dumb gods, who flirt with each other, who we see the beginning of their relationship and its development into real feelings and Loki getting pregnant and how they figure their shit out in a happy, positive, fluffy sort of way. The fic is marvelously paced in the way nothing lingers too long and the writing just smoothly sails along, so you have this story where time and their dynamic keeps progressing forward, it's never spent too long on their pining just to pad things out or force the story to a longer length. It's never spent too much time repeating itself or forcing the characters into the same pattern of events over and over, just to make it longer. Each step forward truly is a step forward, it considers the history of what they've already gone through. A nd that may not sound important, but in a fluff fic that's almost 70k now? It's very important!

And the fic is definitely fluffy! It's pure comfort to read, nothing makes me feel good like sitting down with a fic that I know is meant to make me happy, while still being genuinely fun to read! Loki is still a little shit, but he loves Thor. Thor is still kind of an obnoxious dick, but he's better! It's a fic that wholly embraces the softer, fluffier kind of characterization, which is why you want to read it, because it will make your heart warm and happy. Also there is porn! The kind of delicious porn where they're constantly fucking and Loki enjoys Thor's cock ridiculous amounts and Thor enjoys Loki's cunt, like that is a magic mixture that will never, ever get old. The sex is delicious for its own sake, but it's also used to show how much Thor loves paying attention to Loki, who basks in it, who enjoys Thor's attention on his body and it's just. Ahhhhh, it makes me happy in my heart, okay.
    Fifth rec [OVERALL REC]: I've recommended this fic multiple times as it was being written, but I wanted to write a rec for the fic as a whole, now that it's finished. But, god, what can I even say about this fic? It was wonderful and so charming and was my happy place for as long as it was being written! It's an AU and it's happier versions of the characters, so they're young and in love and you never doubt that it will all work out, which might seem boring, but I never found it to be at any point. For all that you knew everything would work out, it was just fun to see them go through shit (like being separated from each other, finding out nasty secrets that drive a wedge between them, the nervousness over Loki's pregnancy, etc.) because you could just sit back and relax and trust the fic. It's one of those stories that I picked up when I wanted to feel good, when I wanted something that would make my heart happy to read it.

There's also loads of sex with intersex!Loki, which meant that I was in heaven with each chapter, because I love intersex!Loki, I love how much pleasure he gets from it, and I love that it means he eventually gets knocked up, because demanding, cranky, big as a house!Loki who just wants Thor to pamper him forever? Ugh, I would have read another 100k+ of this and not regretted it one bit. I love the later chapters where they know they're having a girl and everything in their lives is sliding into place and it's just entirely good, where there are roadblocks along the way, so many of the usual things that come up in these stories, yet never boring for it. The pacing is lovely, so that everything keeps moving, so that where they start out in the beginning of the story and where they end up at the end really felt like it had been a journey. It doesn't linger, for all that it's a very lengthy fic, it keeps a move on, so that stuff's always happening and moving forward and I found it a little hard to believe that it was almost 85k when it really did not seem that long.

If you're into the fluffier side of things, the author has a way of writing the characters that's utterly engrossing to me, so that I'm reading large chunks of fic at once and hardly realizing that time is passing me by, and afterwards I'm satisfied and energized at the same time. Especially every time Loki climbed into Thor's lap to ride his cock, I could have kissed this fic for how much I loved it. It's all the usual tropes (happy, fluffy family for Loki in Jotunheim, bratty Loki with a heart of gold and an attitude, Thor loving to pamper Loki and spoil him, they fuck pretty much every chance they get, Loki's pregnant and they're going to have a darling girl, everything works out, etc.) and it embraces them happily, which left me just... ahhh, warm-hearted and fluffy afterwards. This was my pick-me-up fic for ages, when I wanted to read about these characters in a happier life, and bless it for that, because I love when two characters get together and that's nowhere near the end of their journey. ♥

Expense Accounts by peppermintquartz, thor/loki + tony/pepper + other marvel characters, fluff, ~1k
    Pepper calls Tony about a purchase made using the company card.
    This is linked as a part of a series of fic, but I found it stands better on its own.
    This was totally cute! I loved the banter between Tony and Pepper, when she calls him about some, uh, interesting purchases on his company's expense account and Tony have to figure out how that happened and why. All as there are two very noisy gods in the other room. It's just light-hearted and fun, something I definitely needed after the previous day's heart-wrenching fic.

Blessings From Sins by DarthSuki, thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, pregnant!loki, fluff, 23k
    Deanon from Norsekinkmeme. Loki is pregnant, coming back as an exile in chains from the final events from the Avengers movie. Nobody seems to know about his ongoing pregnancy, nor the father of the child. Loki doesn't know how to handle it, from bearing the child, to his constant thoughts that he will be killed, surely, for the crimes he had committed. But what is he to do when he's welcomed back home with open arms? What if, although still at fault for the horrors he had done in childish vengeance, his old friends, his family, still missed him incredibly? Would Loki have the growing courage to speak of the unborn child? And, above all else, would he manage to fix the broken bond and heart he once had with not only Thor, but with himself?
    This fic... I kept thinking, while reading the first several chapters, that this fic is trying far too hard. The author wants to describe too much, wants to spend time on too many little details, wants to use a few too many words, but also often winds up skipping words that should be there. The first third of the fic or so is the roughest, I often found my attention drifting during it--and I mention this because I want to stress that I think this author shows a lot of promise underneath that, that the writing gets better as it goes along, that I found myself being pulled into the story more and more easily as the story progressed! Because I'm looking forward to more chapters as I really want to know what happens next!! And I also mention this because I want more readers to give it a chance, because I think there's a lot that's really worth it in this story! It is, however, likely going to appeal to a certain demographic--those that feel Loki was wronged by Asgard and his family, those who think Loki has the potential for redemption.

I picked this fic up because it was based on a prompt for Loki being welcomed back with open arms (part of my dissonance with the early chapters is that a lot of time was spent on Loki being in a cell, when I was expecting something softer right from the beginning) along with Loki being pregnant, which are, like, two of my favorite things! And I do love that this fic doesn't ignore that Loki did a lot of bad shit, but I'll definitely admit that the focus isn't on it, but instead that his family and friends love him and want him to come back to himself and to them. This Loki is still filled with poison and anger, but it's from heartbreak and not knowing how to accept kindness anymore, but his family keeps pushing to get through to him.

I think the point I knew where this fic had me is that it did something really excellent for me--one of the first people to really get through to Loki was Sif! So often Sif is made out to be a harpy in fic and that makes me scrunch up my face a lot and takes down my enjoyment. But not here! Instead, this Sif is AMAZING, she's angry at what Loki has done and how he continues to keep everyone at arm's length, she's angry that he's doing this to them and to himself, because they love him and she cares for him as well, doing so in a supportive and "I'm angry at you because I love you" sort of way and I EAT THAT UP. It's similar with Loki's family as well--after that, Thor manages to break through to him (or, perhaps, Loki is willing to reach out and Thor loves him so much), then his parents are able to reach out to him as well.

And I think that's the other thing that gets me about this fic--I was practically tripping over myself to hurry up between lines of dialogue (or even entire pages!) because I genuinely wanted to know what was going to happen next, when Loki would finally tell Thor the truth about the baby, when he would finally open up to others, when he would finally face his parents again. Any fic that can sweep me up like that, I love. The fic is sitting at about 23k as of the time of this rec, which is a fairly complete first arc, you get most of the revelations and scenes you need, and BLESS THIS FIC FOR IT, because I think I would have kicked something if the author hadn't gotten that far. But it was a really satisfying build up, a really satisfying reveal, all the more so because, for all that there's a lot of angst in this fic, it seems that it's a happy story, that it's about fixing things and making everyone happy, and THAT IS WHAT I LOVE SO MUCH. You guys don't know how much I need more sunshine and happiness in my life with this fandom. All of that and a flashback sex scene that was also satisfying. Bless.

How I Met Your Father by beingevil, thor/loki + loki's kids, human au, lawyer au, fluff, 19.2k wip
    Thor Odinson is an up and coming barrister who becomes entangled in the messy divorce proceedings of one Loki Laufeyson and his custody battle for his four children. Their relationship becomes increasingly unprofessional.
    Chapters 1-3: To be honest, I did not expect to enjoy this AU fic as much as I did. Oh, I love AUs, but I tend more towards fantasy and fairy tale AUs, rather than more modern ones, but... well, I was picking fic out at random to read today, stumbled over this one, and thought, sure, why not. Plus, Loki with his kids! I love Loki and his kids! And I definitely loved it for that, Loki is such an amazing, delightful dad with them and I love the modern AU take on the kids a lot, but, oh, it's his interaction with Thor, the sharp words and unreadable glances and the way he crafts his words carefully that's just perfect for this setting. It's a blend of modern speech and Loki's more lofty Asgardian words, yet it suits him perfectly. The Loki characterization is where this fic really hit me hard and I'm just... charmed by the idea of lawyer!Thor falling for single dad!Loki in the middle of a divorce and his kids taking a liking to Thor and just, ugh, yes, give me all the fluffy, warm feelings and Loki's sharp, carefully chosen words.
    Chapter 4: I was delighted to see an update to this fic and pounced on it fairly quickly because, ahhhh, such a good AU! This Thor is a little off from his canon self, he's rather indecisive here, but I can chalk it up to him being thrown into a situation that he cares about and isn't quite sure how to handle best, because he really cares about this guy and his kids, and, oh, I continue to love this Loki so very, very much. He's so sharp and cold and yet intense and you can tell his fury would burn as bright as the sun and I love love love the kids, they are charming little shits and that is the best thing for Loki's kids to be. I love what presence they have, I love how I'm fond of each of them in their own ways, and this chapter was great for both the Thor/Loki and because Loki's kids being scheming and interrogating are full-stop amazing.
    Chapters 5-6: This fic continues to be very cute and slowly progresses the characters towards a relationship, all while keeping the kids in mind. I love fics where Loki has kids and there aren't enough of them where we actually get to see him interacting with them, with them having actual personalities, so that's a large part of what I'm reading this fic for, more than anything. This Thor is still a bit... he doesn't have a strong presence, despite that this is his POV, but you're not really reading this for Thor, you're reading this for Loki being sharp and the cuteness of Thor interacting with the children that's delightful, and I do love that Thor manages to actually get Loki to open up and consider the reality of his situation and help him, in a way that most people would never be able to do. But mostly I love this fic because the children are a delight, especially Hel, who tends to not get nearly as much focus as her brothers, but I would say here she's the best developed! And I really love how she's similar to Loki in a lot of ways (being insightful, being sharp, having a wicked sense of humor, being manipulative, but not necessarily in a bad way) while still being her own personality--all the kids are, really, but Hel is definitely my favorite. But also, just... for all that there's tense things happening (like custody for the children), there's something really just... happy about this fic, something that makes me relax when I read it, and I'm always all for that in fandom.

Until Ragnarök Come by Zuvios Gemini, thor/loki, made human!loki, fluff, 4.3k
    Thor figures out that the new bookstore in town is Loki's hiding place. A confrontation leads to old wounds being opened and secrets being revealed.
    I can't remember how I stumbled over this fic last night, maybe it was the most recent story in the series? idk, but stumble over it, I did, and it hit me in just the right frame of mind--I wanted something happier and I wanted an AU fic, preferably a Midgard-based one, because I've been craving those lately. And this is more Divergent Timeline, this was written before The Avengers came out, so it's speculation of where Loki might have ended up after Thor and it's a bit rough around the edges, but it also has genuine heart and sneaked its way into mine and made me love it dearly. This Loki didn't go through the same hell that Avengers!Loki did, so I can buy the softer characterization here, especially because he was so heartbroken at the end of Thor, but also because the author doesn't forget that Loki spits out angry answers as often as he confesses softer ones. I love Thor seeking him out, I love him having grown up so much since the movie, I love that he's starting to really see Loki, that it's not too late for them, that Thor has vowed to protect Midgard, so he can't just leave with Loki, that he loves Jane as well, but Loki is his heart. I expected to read this fic and then just toss it aside, only read it for some guilty pleasure fluff, but the author surprised me and I wound up feeling really attached to Loki owning a bookstore and Thor loving him dearly and everything being put behind them, even if it's not the same as it was.

Keeping Promises by Zuvios Gemini, thor/loki, mildly nsfw, some fem!loki, fluff, 7.6k
    Thor made a promise to Loki. How long will it take for him to fulfill it? And what else will happen because of it?
    NOTE: This is the sequel to "Until Ragnarök Come", so you'll need to read that one first for this to make sense.
    Part of the reason I was so charmed by the previous fic, is because this one existed and I loved it even more. It's still kind of fluffy (or fluffy angst) but the author does a solid job of capturing Loki's emotional imbalance and how... he's actually kind of spoiled and greedy and selfish in the way he demands so much of Thor's attention, the way he can be sweet one minute and hissing angrily the next, which wound up really working for me here. I love that Thor loves him so much, but he can't just leave Midgard and go back to Asgard with Loki, things aren't that simple and he's vowed to protect this place and things are good the way they are, you can feel that he doesn't want to ruin that just yet. And things are good with them on Midgard (if complicated), there's a playfulness at times (even as Loki is forever unpredictable in his moods), but eventually they do go back and AHHHH PURE GOODNESS because this fic knows not to break my heart, but instead make things all better! It's entirely about fixing things and Loki's family loves him and Thor's going to stay with him and then they get married and the fic even has bonus fem!Loki and I was like, WELL, NO WONDER I LOVED THIS AUTHOR. Again, it's not going to be for everyone, but if you want something that will make your heart happy and whole, then this might work for you.

Heart Beat by Zuvios Gemini, thor/loki, fluff, 1.1k
    Takes place during my "Keeping Promises" timeline. Thor and Loki spend some time together on a nice spring day.
    NOTE: This is the sequel to "Until Ragnarök Come" and "Keeping Promises", you'll need to read those first for this one to make sense.]
    Okay, this fic is just a little bonus extra and is PURE FLUFFY SUNSHINE. It's set somewhere in that timeline, while Thor and Loki are on Midgard and things are better than they used to be, so they spend a quiet day together and it's happy and good for my heart. It worked for me because it's a small moment in a larger context, where it's a bonus bit of fluff to go with everything that came before it, which I'm always much more amenable to. If I hadn't read the previous stories, if I weren't reading this as a bit of cotton candy extra, I might not have reacted so well to it. But I did and thus FUCK ALL OF YOU THIS MADE ME FEEL GOOD. Plus, ugh, devoted!Thor is one of the best Thors ever.

Gods Bearing Gifts by by calicokat, thor/loki, mildly nsfw, fluff, ~1k
    Thor has been shopping.
    I wasn't sure how much I was going to enjoy a fic that wasn't even 200 words long, but this author wrote one of my favorite fics in this fandom, so, well, okay. And this was totally charming! Thor buys some Midgardian gifts for Loki, who is disdainful about them... until he's not. Short, but adorable and hilarious. A great little pick-me-up fic!

Habit by EliraWinter, thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    Loki's sleeping habits before and after Thor.
    This was super short, but super fluffy and adorable and sometimes I just need a little bite-sized thing to make my day happier! Plus, I love the image of Loki being a total pillow hoarder (WHICH I FIRMLY AGREE WITH THIS PRACTICE) and Thor's fondness for it are just. Ugh, warm and fuzzies all up inside me now.

A Day In The Life Of The Laufeyson Clan by silvertoekee, loki + loki's kids + avengers, fluff, 1.6k
    It is never a dull moment when you are a part of this family, a complete stranger, a coworker, or even a friend.
    This takes place in an alternate timeline, so it doesn't preicsely fit to movieverse canon (and I kept thinking it should be "The Lokison Clan") and is delightfully cracky, which the author just totally runs with. It's Loki and his kids, each more batshit than the last, which he actually enjoys, all the more so because he trolls his entire family with it. I could not stop smiling the entire time he was introducing the latest addition to his brood and the reactions he got from his family and how the kids were adorable as they squabbled amongst each other and Loki might be batshit, but he's a good parent, too. Ugh, this is why I love Loki and kids, because it's darling AND hilarious and I love his kids genuinely.

Dear Mother by anonymous, loki & laufey, good!laufey, fluff, ~1k
    "Why do you call me 'child'? I am a full-grown man, with all the trappings of a man," Loki says stiffly. Laufey snorts. "You are not full-grown. You have yet another six hundred years before I would consider you grown, and another four beyond before you should prove a warrior."
    This is a brief fill and pretty cracky (Loki goes to Jotunheim and Laufey recognizes him as his still-a-child-by-Jotunn-standards son and fusses over him) but it's so good for me and so adorable and totally put a smile on my face. I love the idea that Loki's still a young kid by Jotunn standards and I love when Loki gets a family that coos over him and this is just. Yes, good, give me more of this!

On My Knees (Fighting You to My Dying Breath) by OneWhoSitsWithTurtles, thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, magical/soul bond, fluff, 29.3k
    Thor and Loki return to Asgard, where Thor binds his life to Loki’s to save his brother from imprisonment or worse. Loki fights him with every breath until Loki realizes that Thor might mean more to him than he ever expected.
    This fic definitely took me awhile to get into, I'll admit that. In the beginning, everything felt... almost too easy, despite that Loki and Thor still had all their issues between them. It has a lot of the cliches I usually avoid (people being openly dangerous to Loki despite that he's still their prince, there's a lot of internal monologuing that tells instead of shows, etc.) and it was a bit soft around the edges, but, also, I had little trouble continuing to read the piece and, by the time I was halfway through it, I definitely got sucked into it. I don't mean to give a backhanded rec, more that I'm trying to say that the beginning is rough, but I think its worth sticking it out because the second half gets a lot stronger and also OMG YES YES YES MAGICALLY BONDED THOR AND LOKI, that is seriously a thing I have been pining for in this fandom. It's used to good effect here, I enjoyed the magical world building aspect of the fic, and, okay, wow, this fic had one of the most satisfying sexytimes scenes I've read in awhile. Like, I'm going to get this fic out whenever I need a fix because that was delicious. This is a really excellent fic for when you feel like reveling in the tropes of the Loki Feels fandom (of which I very often do! tropes are tropes for a reason!) and want a good, solidly long fic to read.

Great Expectations by thecatandthehiddle [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, pregnant!loki, fluff, ~1k
    Loki has locked himself in their room for three days and no one will tell Thor why.
    Speaking of fluff that's a joy to read! Oh, man, this fic put such a smile on my face and a skip in my step after reading it, because it's pure happiness and joy! There's just enough crack to be humorous without taking away from the sheer warm-hearted joy of it, where Loki is knocked up and hiding himself away. When Thor finally figures it out, I dare you to read that conversation and not feel like you're bursting with sunshine.

Pastries by Runie (Runic), thor/loki, fluff, war prize!loki, jotunn!loki, ~1k
    So, loki's-gspot posted this on tumblr: Jotun!Loki is given to thor as a sex slave and anticipates all the horrible things Thor’s gonna do to him because he’s heard of odinson’s reputation with giants but when he gets to Asgard and meets thor finally all thor wants is someone to watch him practice training with mjolnir and eat pastries with The end
    This is adorable and perfect, the best way I've ever seen this trope turned on its head! I was practically wiggling around in glee by the end because it was just so charming and delightful and good for me. It takes the prompt and makes it warm-hearted and sweet and just pure fun, I was so glad to see this one. ♥

The glowing light of fingertips by The Life You Killed (LivingInADaydream), thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    Prompt: Cleansed.
    This was short but lovely, the touching they do here is all about intimacy and caring combined with Loki being prickly while Thor doesn't mind. Sometimes that's all I want for these two dumdums and this fic was soothing to my fannish soul.

untitled by thisdorkyblogthing [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, nsfw, fluff, ~1k
    Loki was so beautiful like this, arching and writhing under Thor, clinging onto him as though if he were to loosen his grip in the slightest he would float away.
    I feel like there hasn't been enough fluff in fandom lately, so this was a really welcome fic to find. Sweet, intimate sex and marriage proposals and Thor thinks Loki is just the most beautiful thing ever and Loki has trouble accepting love, but wants it and finally manages to drag some acceptance out of himself and just. It's exactly what I needed in this fandom lately.

Birthing Day by Asgardian Vampire (MetalliKirk), thor/loki, fluff, 1.5k
    Thor brings his daughter Astrid a present on her birthday; Loki shows his approval.
    Speaking of needed fluff fic, this is another that I read for the pure, pure waffiness and how it doesn't pretend to be anything else. It's for when you're in the mood for exactly this, for Thor and Loki with a baby daughter, and a light bit of smut. It's pure softness and comfort food fic when you need it.

Five times Odin tried to get Loki hitched for personal gain, and the ONE time he succeeded. by Wordbytes, thor/loki + avengers + other asgardians + mentions of loki/other, fluff, 3.9k
    “I do not understand this,” Thor grumbled, folding his arms over his chest insolently. “Why must you do this to my brother?”
    One more fluffy thing I needed today, okay. And this was pure, fluffy crack fic that just gleefully embraced the fandom tropes of it. Loki being almost married off, Thor's sabotaging of things in increasingly wild and over the top ways, Odin's constant headache with all of this shit--it was entirely cute and a good time if you want something silly and sweet. It's got all soft edges, but it's deliberately so--hence the embracing of the crack and fannish tropes. It's also six scenes and not quite 4k words, so each chapter is less than a thousand words, which means this goes very quickly, each one is very brief, but I think any longer with them and it would have taken away from the fluff of the piece. More comfort food for when you want it!

Five times Thor thought someone was flirting with his wife, and the one time they really were. by Wordbytes, thor/loki + other asgardians + avengers, jotunn!loki, younger!loki, arranged marriage, fluff, 2.k
    Thor might be a bit possessive. I could be entirely wrong about this, but something tells me otherwise.
    This fic is entirely about the cliches and tropes of fanon characterizations, as well as each scene is often times more a summary of an idea than an active fic, but if you're in the mood for something light-hearted and fluffy, this fic is an easy read and very sweet. It put a smile on my face every time Thor was posessive or jealous of Loki's attentions--even in a mostly platonic way--being on anyone else, the author striding the line between their arranged marriage being sexless for now because Loki's too young and the potential that it will be romantic in the future, when he's grown enough. It's cute and fun, which is just what I needed today!

For Thee Who is Most Worthy by babychan, thor/loki + other asgardians, kid!thor + kid!loki, intersex!loki + intersex!odin, fluff, 5k
    Loki always ends up playing the role of “princess” when playing with Thor and his friends, but does anyone really know why that is? Kidfic. AU
    There are a few too many epithets and focus on physical descriptors in this fic, but it's otherwise so charming! The writing has a lot of potential and could go a lot of really great places, so I definitely want lots more from this author! This fic also blends adorableness with just enough crack to be cute, which is not always an easy balance to achieve--as well as that I genuinely love a lot of the things presented here, like references to intersex!Odin. That's actually something I would love to see explored more, if a fic ran with how the mythology has him as half-Jotunn himself. But, oh, in this fic it's the Thor & Loki interaction that's the real treat, as they're both such spoilted little shits and they have this ridicu8lously close relationship that is absolutely perfect. Manipulative Loki and tempestuous, adoring Thor? OMG BABIES. So darling and happy-making and I'm weak to these things.

Something to Treasure by thescentofwhiteroses [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki (pre-slash?), fluff, ~1k
    "Are you really going to be gone for an entire year?” Loki asked plaintively, tucked against Thor’s side on his bed, green eyes wide with worry.
    This is just super, super fluffy. Like, all things warm-hearted and cuddly and adorable! It's literally young teenagers cuddling in bed together because Thor is leaving for a year and Loki will miss him and Thor will miss Loki, so there will be mutual pining, but at least they have a little bit of time together here. It's warm and sleepy and one of those fics that's a good read for when you want something to ease the pain the rest of the fandom causes or the new trailers cause, just absolutely embracing the warmth of it with both arms. If you want cuddles, this is a cute piece for them! And, boy, do I sometimes want that, when this fandom threatens to break my heart.

Nine Lives (chapter 2 - Loki and Thorgi, Dog of Thunder) by amberfox17, thor/loki + brief tony, dog!thor, humor, fluff, 1.9k for this chapter
    Tony Stark shows up at Loki's door with a rather fat corgi and an explanation involving the words 'Thorgi' and 'Dog of Thunder'. Fluffy crack fic.
    There were probably three separate points while reading this chapter where I got a case of the giggles and had to pause in my reading just to get it out of my system. The fic hits all the right notes and tropes I wanted to see while still keeping them sharp and fresh to read, which is exactly the kind of touch this fic needs. There's also so much affection for animals in the writing and affection for the characters and great comedic timing and even a great Tony voice in the beginning of the fic! But one of my favorite moments--not that I didn't have a lot of favorite moments, especially with all the giggling I was doing--is Loki's thoughts on Thor being a corgi of all things, how that might have been weird to see because it doesn't fit the image of Thor, why this genuinely worked for me with this author's deft hand. But also there's a heart-touchingly lovely penultimate scene and then a perfect ending, too. Hilarious and adorable, this fic was everything it needed to be.

Torpor by ambersagen, thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    written for the prompt 'Imagine your OTP coming home after a hike exhausted.'
    This is just a short piece, I read it on a whim, and didn't know what to entirely expect from it, but! Oh, I got one of my favorite things--exhausted cuddling! When Thor and Loki return, muddied and tired from a hunt, Loki crabbing and Thor just tired, I knew I was going to be at least charmed by this fic. And then they fall into the same bed, tired beyond belief, and Thor just grabs hold of Loki to pull him close, no matter how Loki tries to tiredly wriggle away? Yes, perfect. Especially when Thor's just so tiredly content about Loki's crabbing and inability to get away! Ahhhh, so many feelings, you guys--!

An Obligatory Loki in Chains Fic by thisdorkyficthing, [ tumblr + mobile ver. ], thor/loki, mildly nsfw, jotunn!loki, war prize!loki, fluff, mild bondage, loki in chains, 2.2k
    "All yours." Sif handed him the chain, attached to an overly proud looking Jotunn runt, the one who’d been giving them more trouble than entire armies of full fledged frost giants ever could. He was beaten and bloodied, nothing worse than the injuries Thor had. He couldn’t help but wonder how his men had finally managed to capture and put the magic stifling cuffs and collar on him. He gave the chain a tug, making the runt stumble forward and temporarily knock the cool expression from his face. He regained himself quickly, looking Thor right in the eyes, almost challenging him to keep eye contact.
    Screaming about it, yes. Loki as a war prize in chains and Thor the warrior prince who claims him and then there's seductive little shit Loki and cheerful dick Thor and banter. This is everything I wanted from this prompt, SO MUCH FUN and porn! They're both such amazing dicks, I love these dummies and I love thisdorkyficthing for writing this, because IT IS A TOTAL SCREAM, she is amazing for how much gleeful fun I have while reading her fic. And after that gifset of Jotunn!Loki in chains being handed over to Thor on Vanaheim that went around tumblr, I NEEDED THIS and it was provided beautifully, especially when you realize just exactly what Loki was doing by being so flashy about everything and how Thor is obnoxiously cheerful as fuck about it and just. as;ldfjkalskj oh my Norse asshole babies, I love them so much.

care and feeding by soltian, thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    Thor’s hair is longer than he can manage.
    The accompanying artwork for this is absolutely stunning, as soltian's art is always beautiful, especially with the absolutely lovely fic that goes with it. It's a simple piece, not terribly not, but it's the perfect length for what it needs to be, to capture a quiet sense of affection and intimacy as Thor's hair is a total mess and Loki can't stand it anymore, so he finally gets Thor to let him take a comb to it properly. I adore it for the hair kink aspect, of course, but just as much for the peaceful feeling of it, as Loki slowly works on Thor's hair, as Thor falls asleep on his leg while Loki works. It's warm and happy, it fits the beautiful golds of the accompanying art wonderfully, the sweet undercurrent of longing Loki has for his brother being lovely instead if painful.

    Loki plays hairdresser.
    More hair brushing fic! This is another short fic, not even 300 words, but it's sweet and happy, as Loki has to untangle the rat's nest that is Thor's hair and it's about the quiet intimacy between the characters. It's about one of those simple moments that say volumes about how close you are with someone, how it's happy and sweet and lovely.

Sunset by statikos [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    It starts with the sun starting to melt pink and gold over the horizon and Loki telling Thor that after he so thoughtlessly gave his pack to Sif, they have only Loki’s supplies to rely on to make camp before they meet the others at their destination in the morning.
    Bed sharing! Awkward tangles of limbs that yield a few surprises after they tussle for the blankets for a bit! Yessss, I love all of that. This is a short piece, but it's super charming for the way they're such brothers to each other, bickering at each other without any real heat, Loki's hands too cold, Thor's too hot, there's blanket stealing, and then the inevitable surprise against Loki's backside when Thor solves the problem by draping an arm over him to pull him close. If you don't want to read that stat, I'm not sure our hearts will ever truly beat as one together.

Avengers Two, the Children of Loki by upsidedownwings, thor/loki + some steve/tony + avengers + loki's kids, fluff, 17.6k
    After the events of the Avengers movie, Loki, now back in Asgard, must bear his brother’s odd punishment, all the while planning how he will escape to see his children again. Will the trick he uses only cause his and Thor’s bond to grow stronger? Meanwhile, the Avengers are settling into their new home, Stark Tower, and Tony is being a dick because Steve is so easy to embarrass.
    I do have several caveats about this fic ahead of time, that it's rough around the edges with a lot of typos or stiff turns of phrase, but also in that it starts out with Loki doing a 90 degree turn in characterization (he's suddenly very compliant and loves Thor more openly, which Thor doesn't question Loki's motives for, and I can see Loki getting there, but I did feel like this fic skipped some steps--ones that would work better set in the future, but this seemed to be immediately post-The Avengers), so it's one of those fics where it's not perfect, but I never recommend anything that I didn't honestly, genuinely enjoy. And this fic is about 20k words of Loki working to get his kids back and forge a new life for himself and falling into a relationship with Thor and, wow, do I eat that up like it's candy! And this fic had some really intriguing takes on Loki's kids! Plus, with 20k words, for all that the beginning felt like it was missing some steps, the point of the fic (Loki with his kids) felt emotionally satisfying to me.

This fic did some really neat things with the kids, too, in that it gave them human forms with the idea that, well, Loki's a shapeshifter, no reason his kids couldn't be as well! And I adored that Loki had to make things up to them, that it wasn't suddenly perfect once he got them back, because he had rather abandoned them for a long time. Oh, it wasn't dragged out, which I'm glad for, because that's not what I was here for, it works better that they forgive him quickly, but it was just enough to please me. This fic does touch on a lot of cliches (and I found myself hard pressed to believe that Thor doesn't understand the simple concepts like grocery stores, but this is a trope-laden fic and that's the whole point of reading it!) but they're generally pretty good-natured and this was pure, heart-warming fix-it fic that just made me feel better.

I whipped through this fairly long fic all in one afternoon, pretty much in one sitting, really, because I was in the mood for something like this and the writing/pacing of it had the kind of charm that made me sail right on through it like it was nothing because it was so easy to sink right into. It should probably be saved for when you're in the right mood for it, but I am very glad to have stumbled over this fic. There should always be more of Loki and his kids fic!

30 Day OTP Challenge: Day 4 - On a Date by thisdorkyblogthing [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    "What’s all this for?" Thor smiled brightly and surveyed the rich, aromatic foods and drinks spread across the table, then a thought crossed his mind and wiped the smile right off his face. "What have you done?"
    Oh, this was short but darling. It's such a terribly cute thing, with Loki having prepared a wonderful dinner that Thor can't trust at all, the kind of story that's just so very easy to picture Loki's all too innocent face during the whole thing and Thor's long-suffering face and just. A total light-hearted pick-me-up!

a lesson about stealing lunch money from one Loki Laufeyson by kaedith [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki pre-slash, human au, kid!thor + kid!loki, fluff, ~1k
    a lesson about stealing lunch money from one Loki Laufeyson: don’t.

    This is completely adorable, which is what I want from Thor and Loki as kids on a playground and bullies are trying to steal Loki's lunch money, which is probably not the wisest idea. There's nothing about this that didn't put a smile on my face in the exact way it was intended. And of course this is how bb!Loki reacts. And Thor's borderline nonplussed by it. Best.

Release and Relief by thejammys, thor/loki, NSFW, fluff, 6.1k
    Thor and Loki celebrate their return to Asgard with a bath and some fucking.

    I almost wanted to stick this fic in with the Thor 2 trailer inspired fics, despite that it's not really springboarding off anything that's specifically in the trailers that we didn't already know, mostly because, holy shit, I really needed some fluff. And this fic happily embraces that about itself, it makes no bones about how this is entirely focused on making the characters and the readers feel happy and soothed. The fic is set post-some nebulous events of Thor 2, the details of which don't matter, just that Thor and Loki are back in Asgard, things are better between them, and it's been so long since Loki was touched in a positive way that everything here is gentle, despite the intensity of their feelings. Which isn't going to be for everyone! But I sometimes want to soothe over the ache of everything that happens in canon (which are naturally at their worst, because those are the events that make money), especially after I've just read a bunch of really heartbreaking fics.

The fic also shows that it loves me by giving me THOR AND LOKI BATHING, which I can never get enough of, not ever. There's also super satisfying sex, both for how incredibly soothing it was (for Loki and for me as a reader) and how passionate it was between them, that that was the point just as much as it was about the porn, and there's even a super adorable last line. This is one of those fics that just genuinely, honestly made me feel better, that gave me all the feelings I wanted but in a warm, happy way. Bless.

Dancing Lessons by Bexxter, thor/loki, fluff, 2.1k
    Thor discovers one of Loki's hidden talents.
    This was such a sweet story to stumble over, where Loki was often too young to be taken on trips with Odin and Thor, so instead his mother took care of him and taught him dancing, which he kept up as he got older. And he's genuinely good at it, which Thor appreciates and finds lovely to watch and so, of course, they end up dancing together. The fic paints a pretty picture, but it's also how it's just a really nice, genuinely sweet moment between the brothers, with just enough mutual pining to be delicious, but not so much as to be angsty. Plus, dancing! I love the focus on the dancing itself, the elegance of the waltz and how it lent an intimacy to this piece.

amrun aew by dimmey [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, mortal au (i think?), fluff, 2k
    How slightly strange it still felt to wake up in the morning like this and the man lying next to him, whose arms he had fallen asleep in the night before, was the one he had played with as a child.
    This was pure domestic fluff that warmed my fannish heart and made me ridiculously happy. There's sleepy mornings and Loki wearing Thor's shirt and making breakfast and the sense of them being the only two people in the world, which is one of those things that... it's not always for everyone, but sometimes (especially when I'm reading a lot of more ouchy things) that's exactly what I want and this fic delivered wonderfully. There's also just enough of Loki being glib and Thor being completely genuine with him that it still felt like these characters, rather than just fluff with their names attached. Oh, it's still sweet!Loki, but the kind where I can still see it as him, which is what I wanted, ahhhh.

untitled by thisdorkyblogthing [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, nsfw, fluff, ~1k
    Loki was so beautiful like this, arching and writhing under Thor, clinging onto him as though if he were to loosen his grip in the slightest he would float away.
    I feel like there hasn't been enough fluff in fandom lately, so this was a really welcome fic to find. Sweet, intimate sex and marriage proposals and Thor thinks Loki is just the most beautiful thing ever and Loki has trouble accepting love, but wants it and finally manages to drag some acceptance out of himself and just. It's exactly what I needed in this fandom lately.

cold war by cavaleira [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW, fluff, 2.1k
    featuring teenage dickwads in love, snow, tickling, and (of course) fucking
    Oh, god, asshole teenagers in love who go on adventures and fuck like rabbits. This is everything I need in life right here. The author does beautifully with balancing their little shit natures at this stage in their life with the happy, warm, feel-good air of it so that it's delightfully charming and the sex is delicious and there's snuggling for warmth and teenagers fucking like rabbits and they're such absolute brothers here and teenagers being horny little monkeys and it's the balm I needed after all the crushing feels in this fandom and teenagers fucking like hormonal hot messes. Everything is good and wonderful in this fic.

Birthing Day by Asgardian Vampire (MetalliKirk), thor/loki, fluff, 1.5k
    Thor brings his daughter Astrid a present on her birthday; Loki shows his approval.
    Speaking of needed fluff fic, this is another that I read for the pure, pure waffiness and how it doesn't pretend to be anything else. It's for when you're in the mood for exactly this, for Thor and Loki with a baby daughter, and a light bit of smut. It's pure softness and comfort food fic when you need it.

Five times Odin tried to get Loki hitched for personal gain, and the ONE time he succeeded. by Wordbytes, thor/loki + avengers + other asgardians + mentions of loki/other, fluff, 3.9k
    “I do not understand this,” Thor grumbled, folding his arms over his chest insolently. “Why must you do this to my brother?”
    One more fluffy thing I needed today, okay. And this was pure, fluffy crack fic that just gleefully embraced the fandom tropes of it. Loki being almost married off, Thor's sabotaging of things in increasingly wild and over the top ways, Odin's constant headache with all of this shit--it was entirely cute and a good time if you want something silly and sweet. It's got all soft edges, but it's deliberately so--hence the embracing of the crack and fannish tropes. It's also six scenes and not quite 4k words, so each chapter is less than a thousand words, which means this goes very quickly, each one is very brief, but I think any longer with them and it would have taken away from the fluff of the piece. More comfort food for when you want it!

Loki is a little shit for the nth time but that’s what we’re all here for, so, eh, fuck it. P.S. there’s also porn by thisdorkyficthing, thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, jotunn!loki, fluff, 24k wip
    Guilt bubbled up in his belly, not for the first time since he decided he needed to find a way to get out of Jotunheim permanently, but it was worse now that his plans seemed to be falling into place. For all his faults, Loki loved his father and knew he had his reasons to try and shelter him. Loki felt bad about having to trick him, but he’d never let Loki go otherwise. Asgard was going to be his home. Whether anyone else liked it or not.
    I've been reading this fic for awhile, but every time I would just about catch up so that I could write a proper rec, it would update again and I'd wait to read it first because this fic is just pure, sheer fun! I grin my way through every chapter of this fic, for the way it just whole-heartedly embraces being a light-hearted, flirty, gleeful little shit Loki and with Thor being frustrated, eventually snapping to fuck into Loki like he's been goading Thor into it, until they finally settle into this adorable, banter-laden relationship that they clearly both enjoy the hell out of. It's just so much fun to watch them antagonize each other at first, with Loki a visiting Jotunn prince who abuses his diplomatic position, until Thor snaps and finally fucks him, like Loki's been winding him up for. And it's even more fun when the tables are turned on Loki, because Thor is always more bitten off than Loki can chew.

But it's my favorite when they settle into a secret relationship, where Loki continues to goad Thor on, but it's a friendlier sort of way, where they're both open about how much they enjoy fucking, how much Loki really enjoys Thor's cock and how much Thor really enjoys Loki's warm, wet folds, when Loki is ever seductive and Thor is ever willing to just charge right ahead or smash things, which turns Loki on more than he'd like to admit sometimes. It's a relationship that embraces the tropes of the fandom, but without sacrificing that sharp sense of utter glee I have while reading this, mixing it together with the warm-hearted joy of the writing. This dynamic they have right here, changed a little because this is an AU fic where they're not brothers, this is why I keep coming back to this fandom, and it's just all the better because, oh, man, I can never get enough of intersex!Loki with a cunt that Thor loves as much as I do. Like, seriously, I will never, ever read enough of Thor thoroughly enjoying it, whether with his cock or his tongue, while Loki basks in the attention and Thor's desire for him.

Which, by the way, is some pretty satisfying porn that comes with it because of that! There's a lot of sex in this fic, but I love each and every scene of it, both when they first have almost hatesex and when it later morphs into an energetic more mutually enthusiastic sex. I love that these two are just constantly fucking and I love that there's other stuff that goes on occasionally, too! Thor fighting in a tournament and, mmm, warrior god!Thor is my favorite. Plus supportive!Frigga! Nice!Laufey who would storm the castle if his darling son was being mistreated! So much fun and it's just 24k (so far) of pure joy. ♥

    Guilt bubbled up in his belly, not for the first time since he decided he needed to find a way to get out of Jotunheim permanently, but it was worse now that his plans seemed to be falling into place. For all his faults, Loki loved his father and knew he had his reasons to try and shelter him. Loki felt bad about having to trick him, but he’d never let Loki go otherwise. Asgard was going to be his home. Whether anyone else liked it or not.
    I've recommended this fic before, so this is more of an update rec, as this fic tends to get updated fairly regularly and it's one of those fics that helps keep me on a fannish even keel because I really need happy, fluffier things! And that's what this fic happily embraces, even as the characters start to twist themselves around a bit as they realize it's not just fucking around anymore, but that maybe feelings are starting to get involved here. But you know things will work out, it's the kind where it's just simply, joyfully fun to watch the characters and their antics!

Plus, there are always more sex scenes, sometimes even within the same chapter there's more than one--there's one chapter that has a fast and furious scene, which was up against the wall, and I'm serious, I will never tire of Thor actually being strong enough to just hold Loki up and fuck into him right there and there's hardly any strain for it. Then, within the same chapter, there was a sweeter, softer scene--not that it was without its snark--where Thor took his time and Loki enjoyed that, too. My two favorite things! Combined with how eager and greedy Loki's cunt is for Thor's fock, how it aches and is wet practically at just the thought of him. I love this with a ridiculous passion because I love Loki being attracted to Thor, I love that it gets them to fuck constantly, and I love how nice it is, how much happier this fic is than so much of the more ouchy fic out there. And everything here is just ridiculously cute and fun and charming and I enjoy it immensely.

    I've also recommended this fic before, but there's been a significant amount of updates to it that, whatever, I do what I want, Thor. Because, oh, man, if I didn't have enough affection for this fic already, now there's Loki going into heat and getting pregnant. Bless, bless, bless. There's some lovely porn as well, when Loki's in the middle of his heat and just wants Thor's cock in him now and so I really appreciated that (because it was super hot, especially when Loki was fucking himself with his own hand in desperation, then the utter desperation for a good fuck, the intensity of it and how much Loki just wants it now, that is all really, really delicious to me), but I just love how much fun the fic as a whole is! The pining for each other is done with such obvious affection that it's joyful to watch when Thor is sent to Midgard and Loki returns to Jotunheim. Everything about this fic is a total scream and I could have easily read another 20k in one sitting, for how much this fic just pulls me right in and won't let me go. It's one of those fics that cheers me up when I need something fun. ♥

    There is a tag on this fic that says: "Everything is Happy and Nothing Hurts AU", which is pretty much spot on. I've recommended this fic a few times before, but there's been a significant amount of updating since then and I wanted to write a better rec for the fic as a whole, especially because the point it's ended on at the moment (chapter 29) is a pretty good place of resolution. Not that I wouldn't be happy to have more, of course! Just that I feel like it has enough resolution to appeal to those who might not otherwise want to read a long running WIP fic for fear of nothing ever getting resolved until the very end. Because that's not what this fic is! This, as the tag says, is a happy AU where everything is fun and light-hearted and nothing ever hurts, it's a joy for those who want something long to read but who don't want their hearts crushed while doing so.

The entire point of the fic is what it excells at: Being a slice of life series of events of these two dumb gods, who flirt with each other, who we see the beginning of their relationship and its development into real feelings and Loki getting pregnant and how they figure their shit out in a happy, positive, fluffy sort of way. The fic is marvelously paced in the way nothing lingers too long and the writing just smoothly sails along, so you have this story where time and their dynamic keeps progressing forward, it's never spent too long on their pining just to pad things out or force the story to a longer length. It's never spent too much time repeating itself or forcing the characters into the same pattern of events over and over, just to make it longer. Each step forward truly is a step forward, it considers the history of what they've already gone through. A nd that may not sound important, but in a fluff fic that's almost 70k now? It's very important!

And the fic is definitely fluffy! It's pure comfort to read, nothing makes me feel good like sitting down with a fic that I know is meant to make me happy, while still being genuinely fun to read! Loki is still a little shit, but he loves Thor. Thor is still kind of an obnoxious dick, but he's better! It's a fic that wholly embraces the softer, fluffier kind of characterization, which is why you want to read it, because it will make your heart warm and happy. Also there is porn! The kind of delicious porn where they're constantly fucking and Loki enjoys Thor's cock ridiculous amounts and Thor enjoys Loki's cunt, like that is a magic mixture that will never, ever get old. The sex is delicious for its own sake, but it's also used to show how much Thor loves paying attention to Loki, who basks in it, who enjoys Thor's attention on his body and it's just. Ahhhhh, it makes me happy in my heart, okay.

Five times Thor thought someone was flirting with his wife, and the one time they really were. by Wordbytes, thor/loki + other asgardians + avengers, jotunn!loki, younger!loki, arranged marriage, fluff, 2.k
    Thor might be a bit possessive. I could be entirely wrong about this, but something tells me otherwise.
    This fic is entirely about the cliches and tropes of fanon characterizations, as well as each scene is often times more a summary of an idea than an active fic, but if you're in the mood for something light-hearted and fluffy, this fic is an easy read and very sweet. It put a smile on my face every time Thor was posessive or jealous of Loki's attentions--even in a mostly platonic way--being on anyone else, the author striding the line between their arranged marriage being sexless for now because Loki's too young and the potential that it will be romantic in the future, when he's grown enough. It's cute and fun, which is just what I needed today!

Floating by TheVineSpeaketh, thor/loki + other asgardians, fluff, 3.2k
    And really, he wasn’t floating. But Thor made him feel that way, with his hair tightly braided in places, the plaits shimmering under the dull candlelight above them. He made him feel lightheaded with his well-fitted tunic of a deep maroon that grasped every inch of him like a starved lover. And Loki took another drink, because he shouldn’t be so suddenly and ridiculously attracted to his older brother, and shouldn’t be so excited by his admittedly unusual state of dress.
    This is a short fic and the beginning is a bit rough, but there is so much potential here and I want to see more from this author! Once the fic gets going, there are some lovely moments--Loki's speech struck me as just the right amount of flowery without going overboard, as well as Thor's response in actions and words after that were great! It's a delightful piece with some solid characterization, just the thing if you're in the mood for a bit of light-hearted fare.

Nine Lives (chapter 2 - Loki and Thorgi, Dog of Thunder) by amberfox17, thor/loki + brief tony, dog!thor, humor, fluff, 1.9k for this chapter
    Tony Stark shows up at Loki's door with a rather fat corgi and an explanation involving the words 'Thorgi' and 'Dog of Thunder'. Fluffy crack fic.
    There were probably three separate points while reading this chapter where I got a case of the giggles and had to pause in my reading just to get it out of my system. The fic hits all the right notes and tropes I wanted to see while still keeping them sharp and fresh to read, which is exactly the kind of touch this fic needs. There's also so much affection for animals in the writing and affection for the characters and great comedic timing and even a great Tony voice in the beginning of the fic! But one of my favorite moments--not that I didn't have a lot of favorite moments, especially with all the giggling I was doing--is Loki's thoughts on Thor being a corgi of all things, how that might have been weird to see because it doesn't fit the image of Thor, why this genuinely worked for me with this author's deft hand. But also there's a heart-touchingly lovely penultimate scene and then a perfect ending, too. Hilarious and adorable, this fic was everything it needed to be.

Something to Treasure by thescentofwhiteroses [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki (pre-slash?), fluff, ~1k
    "Are you really going to be gone for an entire year?” Loki asked plaintively, tucked against Thor’s side on his bed, green eyes wide with worry.
    This is just super, super fluffy. Like, all things warm-hearted and cuddly and adorable! It's literally young teenagers cuddling in bed together because Thor is leaving for a year and Loki will miss him and Thor will miss Loki, so there will be mutual pining, but at least they have a little bit of time together here. It's warm and sleepy and one of those fics that's a good read for when you want something to ease the pain the rest of the fandom causes or the new trailers cause, just absolutely embracing the warmth of it with both arms. If you want cuddles, this is a cute piece for them! And, boy, do I sometimes want that, when this fandom threatens to break my heart.

The glowing light of fingertips by The Life You Killed (LivingInADaydream), thor/loki, fluff, ~1k
    Prompt: Cleansed.
    This was short but lovely, the touching they do here is all about intimacy and caring combined with Loki being prickly while Thor doesn't mind. Sometimes that's all I want for these two dumdums and this fic was soothing to my fannish soul.

Pastries by Runie (Runic), thor/loki, fluff, war prize!loki, jotunn!loki, ~1k
    So, loki's-gspot posted this on tumblr: Jotun!Loki is given to thor as a sex slave and anticipates all the horrible things Thor’s gonna do to him because he’s heard of odinson’s reputation with giants but when he gets to Asgard and meets thor finally all thor wants is someone to watch him practice training with mjolnir and eat pastries with The end
    This is adorable and perfect, the best way I've ever seen this trope turned on its head! I was practically wiggling around in glee by the end because it was just so charming and delightful and good for me. It takes the prompt and makes it warm-hearted and sweet and just pure fun, I was so glad to see this one. ♥

Where We've Come by badass-tiger, thor/loki, married au, fluff, 5k
    Loki is the second son of Laufey, betrothed to Thor, the first son of Odin. It takes a while for things to work out between them.
    This story is definitely on the fluffy, schmoopy side, even as Loki tries to keep hold of his dignity and protective walls. And, given this fandom and this ship, I read a lot of wrenching, angsty fic and sometimes I feel like NO MORE I NEED SOME FLUFF and then go seek out adorable AU fics where Thor and Loki get married to unite Asgard and Jotunheim. The writing could use a bit of tweaking and polishing, it feels a bit rushed, but it's got a charm and gave me a lot of warm and fuzzy feelings, the kind where I want to tell anyone who doesn't understand my pure and true love for this genre to fuck off already. I loved that this story was all about the two of them slowly... not entirely hating each other... then being won over despite themselves... and then maybe they were kind of in love with each other. Just, ahhhhh, this is what I needed today and bless the author for providing it.

Candied by drusche, thor/loki, fluff, 3.5k
    Loki has recently discovered the existence of lollipops and he is obsessed with them to the extent of obscenely licking and sucking on them during battles with the Avengers. Thor cannot find it in himself to object when Loki is trailing the red candy up his pale sinewy belly.
    You know what's one of those things that can go either really well or really off track? Lollipop fic. And this one was just... it was just loopy enough that it wound up working really well for me, because it was hilarious and Thor's reactions to Loki's sudden fixation on candy he could suck on was delightful (he's SO HAPPY his brother is actually eating something! oh, sometimes Thor threatens to be my favorite ever) and Tony's, "....seriously? Seriously?" and "This is hilarious." reactions were delightful, and Loki is hilarious as well and it strode that line between, "Yes, this is good." and humor really well. Plus, I just love the more settled relationship between Thor and Loki and the Avengers, at some point in the future when he's a menace, but one they can deal with, and things are... less severe with Thor and Loki. The author really makes that work, too.

Poisoned with Child by madwriter223, thor/loki, fluff, pregnant!loki, miscarriage, 4k
    When Thor brought Loki back to Asgard, he had not expected what they would discover.
    This is one of those fics that... I suspect you need to go in with the mindset of accepting that it's going to absolve Loki of his actions and choices in both Thor and The Avengers. Some people are going to be fine with that for an interesting story, some people aren't going to be able to stomach the idea at all (which I can't blame anyone for, given that there is often a Loki apologia bent to fandom that gets a bit intense) and, personally, I firmly fall into the latter. In this fic, Loki is acquitted of his crimes because he was with child during the time of them and Aesir/Jotun pregnancies are rarely a good thing for the mental health of the carrier, and it had so much potential to just be an excuse for Loki or to be squicky, but I found myself really intrigued by the world the author built here, the various fallout from all aspects (from Loki himself to Thor to Odin to the Jotun to the Avengers, etc.), which wasn't super in depth, there wasn't a lot of time in this fic for it, but it was enough that I find myself really, really wishing there'd been more, because I liked what the author had built a lot. I loved it most of all for that world-building, but also it's really soothing to read fics where Loki's family stands by him and treats him kindly as well, making this fic a balm on my soul when I needed it.

Arranged by Rynfinity, thor/loki, mildly nsfw, arranged marriage, jotunn!loki, fluff, 5.3k
    Thor AU - Odin does not steal Loki; the Jotun prince is instead raised to adulthood in Jotunheim. When Thor leads his friends to attack Jotunheim, unanticipated consequences ensue.
    Oh, this was just pure, delightful fun! It's the trope of an arranged marriage that starts off cold and it's only through hard work that it starts to thaw, which is another one of those ways to my heart. It's relatively short for this genre, but a lot of that is because of how angst-free this is, how it's light-hearted and pretty joyful to read! Every scene Thor and Loki share is utterly charming and it's perfect the way it is, it didn't need to be longer. When you want something feel-good and totally cute, about these two Norse dumbs falling in love, this is fun. <3

The Cradle of the Storm by mysticmjolnir [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW, fluff, 1.7k
    Thor carries his brother directly to the healing rooms, and then refuses to leave until Eir threatens to summon the Queen.
    This is a sequel to this fic, which I think would help to read first, but isn't 100% necessary, if you just want to get to the porn. And this was sweet and sexy and possessive, it's a perfect follow up to the previous fic, where it's just an entirely feel-good and happy fic. I love love love when Loki gets hurt and Thor gets protective and they work this out by fucking, especially when Loki is super turned on by how Thor is just a storm incarnate, how that doesn't negate that this is entirely warm-hearted and fluffy. *happy sigh*

Press Any Key to Continue by Misaya, thor/loki + background clint/natasha + avengers + other asgardians, NSFW, fluff, orgasm denial, sex toys, 4.4k
    Natasha shows Thor the world of sex toys and assures him Loki will like it, even going so far as to give him a demonstration with Clint. Loki does like it. He likes it a lot, even if his brother is an absolutely horrid tease.
    This is definitely one of the crackier entries in this series that I've read so far and I rushed through the first half because it had more dumb!Thor than I would have liked (even knowing this series is embracing the tropes for humor's sake often times, so I'm not resentful of it here) and he was amazed by Midgardian level technology, despite coming from an advanced alien society. But the second half was super fluffy and fun, where Thor has Loki keep a vibrator inside him him all day and Thor turns it on at random times and Loki loves it and hates it and it's one of those things where they're such brothers and yet entirely lovers at the same time. I needed fluffy, happy pwp with satisfying sex and this fic absolutely delivered that to me, so I'm totally happy with this one!

No fear or shadows by mysticmjolnir (empressmaude), thor/loki, thorki kids, fluff, ~1k
    Thor plays peek-a-boo with his and Loki's baby girl, while Loki pretends it's the dullest thing imaginable
    This is pure, beautiful, wonderful fluff with Thor playing peek-a-boo with his and Loki's daughter, while Loki valiently pretends this is all mundane and beneath him. It's a snotty Loki who is clearly utterly in love with Thor and the baby, the good-hearted quality of the fic singing through wonderfully. It's fluff, but the perfect kind and daddy!Thor is wonderful and everything is happiness, ahhh. This is a perfect thing to read when you want to read something that embraces these tropes that are my favorite pretty much ever and is just sheer delight!

Acceptable Gifts by Runie (Runic), thor/loki + frigga + odin, pregnant!loki, thor 2 spoilers, emotional fluff, 2.9k
    She is given one more day to be with them, but the effect will last a lifetime.
    I had no idea this was coming, it was a complete surprise to me, so I was utterly touched by it! And I spent the whole fic on the verge of tearing up because it's just so much about family and important moments and beginnings and endings and loss and gain and Frigga coming back for a day and they all have one last chance with each other. The fic embraces the fluffiness of it, without giving up the weight of it, that this is a joyous day, but it's also an incredibly bittersweet day, and that's what puts such genuine emotion into it for me! It was a bit of an emotional wringer, but in a good way and I loved it dearly and genuinely.

Swell by Misaya, thor/loki + other mcu characters, NSFW, pregnant!loki, fluff, 4.1k
    You never, ever use the words "Fat" or "enormous" or anything relating to size when dealing with a pregnant person. Just like you'd never invade Jotunheimr in the winter. Even Odin knows that.
    Domestic, cracky fluff with pregnant Loki and doting!Thor! It's been ages since I read a good embracing-these-tropes fic and I've missed them! Loki with morning sickness and sweet tooth cravings and mood swings and Thor calling him fat and being turned on by Loki being huge with a baby in him and, oh, I love every inch of this. It's pure happiness and giggly sunshine! It's not for everyone, if you hate those tropes, this is going to be a full on flinging itself into them, which is for people who already love them--but if you do, there's a nice sex scene that was short but utterly filthy and one moment that hit me just right where... I honest to god laugh aloud for a full minute because it was so perfect. It's one of those moments where Thor is such a horndog that you knew everything was good in their lives, because it's only when Thor's not trying to stick his dick into everything that you should worry about things. Fucking bless.

unttitled by thegoodlannister [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki + background avengers, valentine's day, fluff, 1.1k
    "Loki, get your ass down here and deal with your brother before I’m forced to do something I regret!” The intercom crackles around Stark’s voice as Loki groans into his pillow. It’s far too early to deal with Stark’s childishness.
    If I could, I would make Cat write in this fandom forever, because this is exactly what I wanted from a Thor/Loki Valentine's Day fic. It's just so much fun and I'm serious that I literally smiled the whole way through until my face hurt, it's happy and warm and all things good, but without sacrificing the sharpness or characterization for it. It's fluffy but this is really, really good Thor characterization and this is Loki who knows how to accept affection, but is still so jagged and this Tony voice is superb and I was all set to be tetchy at the way Clint talked to Thor, except then it was perfect. This is Thor with diction and though and care and this is how he would approach a Midgard holiday. And I loved this so very much, it really is a beautiful, beautiful piece.

Hush (Let Me Love You With My Silence) by Misaya, thor/loki + background avengers, NSFW, past pregnant!loki, gags, somnophilia, fluff, 2.1k
    Modi has uncannily sharp ears and wakes up at the slightest provocation, which makes it rather difficult to participate in such activities as Thor and Loki are accustomed to. And by "such activities," I mean sex. In case that wasn't clear.
    I really am enamored with this fic series (that you can read out of order, if you like), because it's just such domestic fun. They're a happy family and Thor loves Loki happily and completely, Loki is a crab and is snotty, but obviously loves him back, and there's just enough humor and crack to put a sparkle on the whole thing. It might not be for everyone (between the softened edges on everyone and clueless Thor), but I genuinely look forward to this author's fics every single time, there's just such love for everyone here that the fic has all this heart that's worth everything to me. And this one was another where I had to set the reader down to just laugh for a full minute becuase there was just such a perfect moment in it. Add in some nice and fun sex and this fic just made me purely happy, with their family and the happy future they have together.

Gaps (Tu Me Manques) by Misaya, thor/loki + other thor characters, NSFW, phone sex, dirty talk, fluff, 2.8k
    Malekith's causing havoc on Midgard, and unfortunately, that means that Thor has to deal with it, and Loki's started talking to the tapestries in an attempt to ignore the ribbons of want curling in the junction of his thighs. Fed up with it, Loki decides to take matters into his own hands.
    This is part of a series, but I find that they largely stand pretty well on their own or can be ready in any number of orders. I get so happy when I see another fic from this author, because this series is pure cracky, happy, fluffy joy. Like, if that's not your thing, if you don't enjoy these torpes, then the way this fic whole-heartedly embraces them won't be for you. But it's like candy to me in every way and there's phone sex that's deliciously hot, as Thor describes what he'll do to Loki when they're together again and moments of genuine humor throughout the fic that I enjoyed as well. This was light-hearted, silly fun with tasty bits of porn! And that makes this my happy place. :D

This Baby Isn't Blue!?!?!?!?!? by thisdorkyficthing, thor/loki + other thor characters, some thrym/loki, jotunn!loki, pregnant!loki, arranged marriage (not thor/loki), fluff, 2.2k
    His father, sitting at his throne and giving Loki the most exasperated look he could manage, cleared his throat. “Well, Loki? Do you wish to explain yourself?” "Not particularly."
    This isn't a long fic, but it's delightful fun, where Loki is an unrepentant little shit and gets knocked up by Thor before he's arranged to marry Thrym and isn't one bit sorry when he's caught. That Loki is rather gleeful about getting to tell Thor the nws, the way he's so spoiled here, and the brief bit of sex are all wonderful, making for a cheer-up read today that I needed! Plus, some really sweet fluffy moments! Just... ahhhh, so good for me. ♥

Leak by Misaya, thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, past pregnant!loki, lactation kink, fluff, 3.4k
    Modi is a lovely addition to the household, but Loki isn't particularly delighted to be waking up in the middle of the night to feed the growing baby. Thor has a solution for that, and a solution for the problem resulting from that solution as well.
    This fic is part of a series that can be read in order or standalone!
    This fic is pure trope and I love it so fucking much. Loki's Jotunn family hates Thor and are protective of their baby, Thor and Loki settle into life with their new baby, and everything is happy and good. I really cannot express how much joy that kind of fic brings me! They're using baby formula now, so Loki's breasts are heavy with milk and I love when Thor's enthralled with Loki's tits and can't keep his mouth or his hands off them, which leads to some really very nice sex as Loki rides Thor's dick and Thor plays with Loki's breasts, I'm not kidding that I would read that over and over again in this fandom. This author has such a way with the pure charm of a series like this, that gives it this quality that I can't even begin to describe that keeps me coming back for more, that's both my comfort place when I have a new one to read and also that more than once this series has gotten me to honestly just laugh right the hell out loud. It's just pure fun and happy future family for them! Give me more of this, please.

Up All Night by The Cat & The Hiddle [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, nsfw, past pregnant!loki, thorki parents, fluff, 1.1k
    Thor arrives home on Asgard to find Loki up all night with a cranky baby.
    This is set in a universe of several fics, but so long as you know Loki recently gave birth to a little Thorki bebbeh, you're good to go, I think. And this was pure, pure fluff that I desperately needed, because all the angst in fandom was getting to me. Instead of that, I needed some pure sweetness where Thor and Loki are married and have a daughter and love each other and fuck in the bath. I needed it. The sex is brief, just a couple of paragraphs, but it's of Loki riding Thor's cock in the bath, so, you know, I was all over it. And I just really appreciated that I felt better after reading this, because it did my heart good.

Asguard Legal by Princesszellie, thor/loki, human au, lawyers au, fluff, 1.9k
    Loki is a junior lawyer and assistant for the Senior Partner at a prestigious firm, Thor is the playboy son of said Senior Partner. When the ‘heir to the throne’ becomes bewitched with his father’s beautiful secretary things at Laufey, Odinson & Aseir could get interesting.
    This fic isn't going to be for everyone and the writing is rought around the edges, but it's super fluffy and has all the fun tropes I was hoping for when I picked it up! It's one I used to make myself feel better when I really needed some human fluffy AU fic. It's cute cute cute and light-hearted flirting and everything is sunshine and candy, which is what I wanted from this, okay.

untitled by thisdorkyblogthing [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, pregnant!loki, fluff, 1.1k
    Loki frantically swatted away the image floating above him, the shimmering particles dispersing and disappearing while Eir stood beside the table, the slight rise in her eyebrows the only outward sign of shock.
    This was pure fun and joy, the kind of fic that cheers me up and makes me happy! Loki being nervous about his pregnancy, the reunion with a filthy Thor who finds it funny when Loki is disgusted by the dirt and grime and stink on him, the bathing together afterwards, the eventual confession, it's all light-hearted and perfect. It's sweet and lovely and just... happy making. ♥

    thorki want: an au where the war between asgard and jotunheim never ended and thor and loki meet for the first time as adults on the battlefield. they start a secret relationship but loki ends up getting pregnant, and they have to tell everyone and end the war
    I don't think I stopped the entire time I was reading this because it was sharp and snappy and pure fun. I loved that Loki was totally turned on by warrior god Thor and was a total little shit about everything and I loved them sneaking around and of course Loki ends up pregnant! I wouldn't be surprised if it had been on purpose even. :D This was sheer joy and delight to read.

Valhalla by Runie (Runic), thor/loki + other marvel characters, human au, implied intersex!loki/pregnant!loki, restaurant au, fluff, 3.1k
    Thor has worked hard to make his restaurant, Valhalla, successful. But on the night when an important critic is set to visit, Thor has to find a replacement chef, which leads him to Loki, which leads to the start of his whole world doing flip flops.
    I actually did a happy sort-of-wiggle when I was done reading this because it was so cute and pure fun! The early scenes with Thor and the restaurant and Loki's first night working there are cute and it's a charming as hell fluffy humor au, where I especially enjoyed cheerful almost to the point of/just this side of obnoxious Thor, but, oh, man, Loki with a crabby but supportive family! A wee kidlet who is every kind of adorable! Snuggling in bed with Mumma! It was so cute and wonderfully fluffy that I could have melted into a puddle right there on my bed. It may not be for everyone, but I was genuinely charmed by this and immediately had to dive into the second fic because, ugh, so good for my heart. ♥

Coffee by Runie (Runic), thor/loki + sleipnir + other marvel characters, human au, implied intersex!loki/pregnant!loki, restaurant au, fluff, 1.9k
    Loki's first day at Valhalla is also the day Thor meets Sleipnir.
    This is a sequel to Valhalla, which should be read first.
    I originally meant to rec these fics together, since they're fairly short, but I can't do it when each one is too much fun! This fic is basically three scenes--Loki bringing Sleipnir to work, Thor meeting Sleipnir while Loki is busy, then Loki talks to Thor afterwards--and I don't think I stopped smiling the entire time I was reading. I laughed out loud at Thor's interaction with Sleipnir, which was genuinely charming and funny, so easy to see the scene in my head and Thor was with the kid. And then my face hurt all oer again during the Thor/Loki conversation because it was sparkling and perfect and spot on for what I wanted from a fluffy human au, the way Thor looks at him and has all this presence and Loki has all these grumpy, jagged edges. Again, this isn't going to be for everyone, but I'm a sucker for well-written super fluff like this, so it was super good for me!

One Who Wants For Nothing by KingLoptr (Aestridr), thor/loki, NSFW, pregnant!loki, pregnant sex, fluff, 1.4k
    Loki is pregnant and happy, and really that's all Thor ever needs.
    Oh, I did not stop smiling all through this fic, because it's exactly what I wanted from cranky and heavily pregnant Loki, whom Thor can't keep his hands off of. The flashback porn as Loki rides Thor's cock like a demon, then the gentler sex as Loki lies on his side while so huge with child and Thor pushes more softly into him this time, the lovely sense of contentment in their lives, all of it was so satisfying for me. It's cranky fluff with hot porn, so I ate this like the best candy and loved it dearly. It's a feel-good fic for when you need something on a crappy day and want to feel better, then add some porn on top of that, which is exactly why it made my day better when I needed it.

Sheath by Misaya, thor/loki + loki/mjolnir,NSFW, object insertion, fluff, 2.6k
    Loki's been reading some Midgardian Marvel comics to see what all the fuss is about (and, really, what the Midgardians can be writing about him), when he comes across some coincidental innuendo. Thor, and Mjolnir, are only too happy to oblige.
    This fic is part of a series, but you don't have to read them in order, if you don't want, they stand well on their own.
    I have a tremendous weakness for fics with Loki and Mjolnir, so this one was delightful for me. It's fun and fluffy and silly and light-hearted, all things I really enjoy and then, oh, I really enjoyed the porn, where Thor fucks Loki with Mjolnir, mm. It's the kind of fic where you should just roll with it, not necessarily for everyone, but the hammer almost having a personality, eager to be in Loki, it was charming and super hot for me. It's another one that I read when I was having a grumpy day and the fluffy aspect of it just cheered me right up.

Sleepy by Runie (Runic), thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, lazy morning sex, fluff, ~1k
    Lazy morning sex.
    This was a short but lovely and fluffy piece that was perfect for what I wanted, because I love sleepy morning sex and this was nicely hot, mm. It was one of those where I just needed something good and warm-hearted to cheer me up after a grumpy day and this was perfect for it! Bless Runic for being in this fandom, seriously.
