Big in Japan by gunboots, thor/loki + some steve/bucky + avengers, humor, 6.2k
    Steve hesitantly reaches out and takes the object in Tony’s arms to survey it. 'It' being a pillow upon which was an almost frighteningly accurate illustration of Loki, their on-and-off again nemesis. "I don't--how did you even get this? Who would MAKE this?" Clearly Steve doesn't find the attention-to-detail on Loki's costume as hilarious as Tony does, which whatever. Like he said. Killjoy. A.K.A The one time Tony buys Thor the world's worst souvenir and it somehow worked out in the end anyway.
    I kind of stared at the summary for this fic and was like, "....hrm." until Meg said, well, actually, it was pretty lol. So, okay, I trust her opinion on things that are funny and I settled in to read. Oh. I think I just about cried my way through this entire fic because it's beautiful and the author does a brilliant job of taking a cracky situation (Tony brings back the WORST GIFT EVER from Japan) and yet does an amazing job with the characters' voices and the entire situation. I mean, a Loki love pillow (which Thor takes to carrying around because he misses his brother and just-- tears, so many tears on my face, okay) is one of those things that could go so horribly wrong in fic, but it doesn't! By the time Loki himself shows up, MY FACE HURT from Tony being like, yes, this is the most hilarious thing ever and then later, no, no, why did my joy turn out like this, while everyone else around him is a bunch of total killjoys. Even when I reread this fic, even when I know it's coming, even when I know what Thor's reaction is going to be, I still laugh until my eyes mist over from trying to stiffle my laughter because I am not explaining why I'm in a fit of lols, no. Basically, this fic is my happy place right now.

Unforseen Side Effects by Fickle_Obsessions, thor/loki + avengers, mildly nsfw, humor, 5.9k
    In a quick effort to make Loki docile, the Avengers release a chemical that only drugs Asgardians. It gets Thor too, but hey, they had no choice. But Loki and Thor aren't so much docile as incredibly affectionate (except when Loki turns his lazy, heated gaze on one of the Avengers, at which point Thor turns into a possessive caveman and fucks Loki right in front of them.
    First Rec: Oh, jesus, this fic. It's amazing. It's got a beautiful Tony voice and an amazing concept. YOU GUYS, THIS IS WHERE I LIVE, OKAY. I laughed the entire way through this because, oh, Tony's voice is seriously pure perfection with every wry comment or thought, but also Thor and Loki being all over each other without giving a fuck about the rest of the world--well, until Loki is Loki and Thor snaps and makes a point, which is super super hot but also H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S. Like, I cannot even talk about how much I love this fic's humor without keyboard mashing or just repeating "LOLOLOLOLOL" over and over! I want to quote a line or two from the fic but I honestly CANNOT CHOOSE, they are ALL TOO PERFECT. I could just... just... explode from laughter and absolute joy at how much I loved this fic.
    Second Rec: I believe this fic was one of the first I read on the kinkmeme and it was one of the reasons I decided, okay, fuck it, I'll read and even recommend fics from the kinkmeme (which wasn't a thing I did for a long time, for various reasons, blah, blah, blah). Because this fic made me realize, oh, this fandom is going to be amazing and, holy shit, I have found my people. This fic is literally nearly every thing I could possibly want from this fandom! Tony hits Loki with an experimental drug that should act like an Asgardian version of Xanax, except he gets Thor in there as well, which turns them both super touchy feely and relaaaaaxed. So, they lose all concept of personal space and it's adorable! Until they start slowly coming out of it and Loki has just enough of his sharp edges back to realize what a gift he's been given for a time, which means he halfway flirts with Tony in thanks, which does not go over well with Thor and Tony's like, whyyyyy, why does everything I love turn out this way, because Thor is... Thor about it. Meaning, he's going to fuck Loki on every available surface within Tony's sight to prove mine, you don't touch, which Loki clearly encourages because he's an evil little shit. And then Tony has to drag Steve into this because, well, moral support, team captain. :| Amazing. AMAZING. Especially when the author is as screamingly funny as this one is. This is one of those perfect fics for me, I can reread it endlessly.

Uncomfortable by allourheroes, thor/loki + some clint/natasha + avengers, humor, ~1k
    Clint is linked to the kink meme. Shock of all shocks, Loki seeing it leads him to more trauma.
    This is an awfully short fic for the premise, it's really only just the one moment, but, well. It's Thor/Loki to Clint's trauma and there're a couple of lines that had me doing that stuffing my hand practically into my mouth to stifle the laughter thing. The second to last line is totally killer especially and, thus, I loved this.

The Incestuous Elephant in the Room by quiddative, thor/loki + avengers, humor, 1.5k
    or Five Times Everyone Wondered Why Tony Stark Hadn't Invented Brain Bleach Yet and The One Time They Just Said "Oh, fuck it!"
    I believe I've read this fic before? But it was before my current dive bombing onto the Special Brothers train, so I went back to reread it and it's still the most amazing thing just about ever. Five scenes (well, six, but one is where everyone's just like, "eh, fuck it") where Thor and Loki weird the shit out of the other Avengers because they're all over each other and Asgard is very different from Earth. It's more in line with the comics lineup (since She-Hulk, Spider-Man, Tigra, and Logan are part of the team) but the author's comedic timing is beautiful and it works well enough for the movieverse, too.

Vices by gunboots, thor/loki implications + tony/loki simplications + steve/loki implications, pregnant!loki, humor, 2k
    “Question,” Tony feels some moral obligation to stop Thor before he starts to sound like something off of daytime TV, well that and a burning curiosity that is probably going to get him a hammer to the head, “Why is he pregnant?” The pitying look Thor spares him almost balances out the look of sheer condescension that Loki gives him.
    Well. With a summary like that, there was no way I wasn't going to read this fic! Not when I'd read fic by the author previously and screamed with laughter, not when I got another hilarious fic out of it! I feel like, at some point, pregnant!Loki fics should stop being amazing, but I'm nowhere near that point yet, not when it's hilarious that they're so casual about it while the Midgardians are kind of quietly freaking out about it, not when Loki is such an arrogant snot about it, not when Thor is so very earnest about it. Also, the ending took me a minute to get, but then I looked back up at the tags and started shrieking with laughter again, so, clearly I loved this.

An Unexpected Confession As Seen By Tony Stark by Dark_Lady_Devinity, thor/loki + tony, humor, ~1k
    for the Norse kinkmeme prompt: "During a battle with the Avengers, Loki confesses that he loves Thor. Awkward silence imminent."
    There is a moment in this fic that just had me nearly shrieking with laughter, when Thor reacts to Tony trying to give him advice on how to deal with Loki's sudden confession. It's just. It's perfect. I'm a huge sucker for stories where a character accidentally reveals their feelings in a heated moment and suddenly everything changes, but not before they first attempt to crawl in a hole and die. This author does a fantastic job of writing that and making it so good and then adding in an amazing Tony characterization as he witnesses Thor and Loki's... whatever it is.... and just. I love everyone and everything after this.

The trials of Loki Odinsson by anonymous, thor/loki (possibly implied), humor, 2.1k
    Heed now the words of Loki Odinsson, swift and clever Loki who defeated three fire dancers in a competition of wits, Loki lithe and handsome! Son of Odin, whose father was Bor and who we call the Allfather, son of Frigga who is the queen of Asgard. Set down in the records of Loki Odinsson, Prince of Asgard, aged five hundred years and the third quarter of a decade.
    The prompt for this was: Loki keeps a diary and a good portion of it is just gushing about Thor. and I was hoping for something at least cute or mildly amusing. Instead I got HILARITY. The author's Loki voice is amazing, I knew right from one of the early lines in the fic that I was going to love this whole piece--Thor, if you have dedicated yourself to overcoming your difficulties with the written script and chosen my private parchments as your practice, put this down now or I will cut your hands off in the night and feed them to the fish! I shall know, Thor! The author does a fantastic job of balancing out really good character voices/characterization with the cracky nature of the fic as well as making me shriek with laughter pretty much the entire way. It's so, so hilarious to read Loki's trolling of everyone around him while talking of it in such sweet, silver words and, of course, everything is always about Thor. There are so many lines I wanted to quote from this but if I got started, I would end up quoting half the fic back, because it's one of those fics.

Loki in Heat by lies_d, thor/loki, dog!thor + lokitty, in heat!loki, humor, 1k
    What it says on the tin. Except Loki's a cat. And Thor is a dog. Oh dear.
    I was a little wary of reading a fic with cat!Loki and dog!Thor, especially one titled "Loki in Heat" because it could all too easily skirt the edges of furry porn, but... well, there's really no graphic detail here, instead it's just about the total adorabless of Thor being a dog and Loki being a cat and how their personalities are pretty much not that different for it. I just want to hug this Thor forever, because he's so good-natured and enthusiastic and loves Loki so dearly, who may be catty, but he's affectionate in his own way, too, and that is perfect for cats and dogs. Not to mention, of course, that the humor is delightful in just the right amounts and, ahhhh, now I want a ton of fanart for this, too!

Cat+Corgi by lies_d, thor/loki, dog!thor + lokitty, in heat!loki, pregnant!loki, humor, 1.5k
    Thor wants a family, but Loki just wants sex. Complication: Thor is a dog and Loki is a cat. Will those two crazy kids ever work it out before Master Odin finds out about their interspecies love affair?
    This is a sequel to "Loki in Heat", which should be read first.]
    As soon as I finished the previous one, yes, of course I jumped right onto the second one! And it's just as hilarious and darling as the first one! With Thor-the-Corgi being so affectionate and full of love and straightforward, while Loki-the-cat is sarcastic and, well, catty, but still affectionate in his own way, and then, oh the ending with the litter of kittens! But also the licking and nuzzling and curling up to sleep and the cuteness that my heart can barely stand--! Like, it's pure and concentrated joy and sunshine, that's what this fic is.

Happiness Deserved by anonymous, implied thor/loki + tony stark, pregnant!loki, childbirth, nursing, humor, 2.3k
    Tony closed his eyes, praying with all his might that when he opened them again this would all be a dream. A terrible, terrible, vicious dream. He squinted one eye carefully open. Nope.
    I was a little wary of clicking onto this fic, given that the prompts were childbirthdy, mpreg, nursing, but it also promised to be a happy, warm fic and I kind of really needed that in this fandom, so, okay, I'll give it a shot. And then ALL THE FEELINGS, omg. Loki going into labor while trapped with Tony Stark of all people and it's amazing banter as Tony tries not to be too weirded out and Loki doesn't help because he finds Tony's reactions hilarious (when he's not cranky from the situation they're in) and then it's Loki's world narrowing down to just the baby in his arms and ugh. So many feelings. It's a lovely fill, the author does a fantastic job at balancing the warm, fuzzy feelings and the sharp humor that had my face hurt from trying not to laugh because I needed to keep reading. And the ending just. Filled my heart with so much love and sunshine. Perfect.

Name Day by cavaleira, thor/loki + avengers, humor, 2.6k
    "Oh my god," Tony said, "this is literally Shakespeare in the Park."
    So I seriously needed something happy in my reading with these two today and this was just so very joyful and darling. Thor and Loki have an argument over whose name she will take, which isn't really meant to harm, more that it's about just smacking each other around, all while the Avengers watch in complete "....wtf." And it's the outside view of these Norse gods that they don't really understand, especially Tony's batshit amusement at the whole thing, that really just charmed and delighted me. Of course, the ending was even better, a lovely way to cap off a bright, sunshiney fic. ♥

Odd Family Delivery by whimsicalmuse, thor/loki + avengers, pregnant!loki, humor, 7.8k
    Loki goes into labor. And some other stuff. Like stuffing. And Spider-Man.
    I cannot resist Odd Family-based fic and I read pretty much everything that comes across my path, so seeing fic where Loki's going into labor with Erik? Yes, give me that. Especially when the author happily embraces the cracky humor that the ask blog is in the style of, where it's totally OTT, but also has moments of sweetness and everything being so... everyone is family. And this was super fun, with it being just before Thanksgiving, Loki heavily pregnant with Erik and it has all the trappings I love--nesting instincts, mood swings, Loki being totally crackers over baby stuff, and doing whatever the fuck he wants to do. The second half of the fic is super cracky (even moreso than the first half), as the scene in the shopping store spirals out of control, but this is a universe that works well with that style and the entire thing made me smile and then! Finally Erik is born and it's sweetness and happiness and family. This was adorable!

Afterglow by onapage, thor/loki + odin + frigga, mildly nsfw, humor, fluff, 2.4k
    Thor noticed it first. "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. "I confess I do not see the point in this cantrip."
    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!

Call Me Fat And The Pups Aren't Yours by ranchelle, thor/loki, sort of pregnant!loki, humor, ~1k
    Thor and Loki are hamsters. Thor is busy hitting the 30mph mark on the speedometer above his wheel when Loki waddles in looking tired.

    When I had finished reading this fic, I had to put my reader down for literally a minute and a half to just laugh. I could talk about how it's actually beautifully done in that it's both adorable and just the right amount of cracky, that it doesn't try too hard, but instead just left me wanting to writhe around on the bed with how fucking cute this was. I could even talk about how the ending scene is just all kinds of perfect perfect perfect. But mostly I just totally lost it at the end and I always need more fic that makes me cry from the lolz.

The Pros and Cons of Being a God (and fucking your brother) by zimriya, thor/loki, NSFW, humor, 2.4k
    As self appointed guardian of Midgard, there were many things that Thor had expected to have to do; this was not one of them.

    This is the perfect fic to have come along at the perfect time for me. It was H I L A R I O U S, as the rest of the team expects Thor to take care of his little brother, so that Loki will stop being such a goddamned pain in the ass. And by take care of it, make sure he can't walk for, like, a week, Thor. In the wrong hands, this could be awkward or just not that cute, but here it's beautiful and perfect and the author hit all the right notes for me, especially when Loki is as smart as you expect him to be and has the reaction you expect him to have and Thor doesn't really give a fuck because, eh, Loki's pretty hilarious. Oh my god, yes, give me Thor not really caring that much, so long as things are fine, nobody died, and Loki's just being a little shit. Give me that always. Especially when you give it to me with a really satisfying sex scene, where there's just enough whining when Thor fucks him a second time, but also clearly enjoying it and, ahhhh, you have no idea how much I love Thor never withdrawing from Loki, so he just starts rocking in a second time and a;sdfkjal;ksj oh my god, humor and porn. You don't know how much better this made my day.

A Completely Normal Day by Arkada, thor/loki + avengers/avengers, humor, 1.4k
    Steve isn’t wearing pants, Clint isn’t wearing anything, Natasha is smiling, and Loki has a sudden interest in the contents of the Avengers’ linen closet. But it’s not like there’s anything weird going on.
    I don't know whether to be joyous for this fic's existence or envious that I didn't come up with it first! It's such a pure delight of a fic and paced just right and made me cakcle by the ending. The dreamy quality and humor work perfectly together and if you don't laugh at the ending, I don't know how to help you. It's such a simple thing and yet it's so simply brilliant, both in idea and execution, that I smile (or laugh) every time I even just think about it.

Once Bitten (Twice Shy) by Saucery, thor/loki + odin, dog!thor + lokitty, crack, humor, ~1k
    Odin Allfather owns two high-maintenance pets. Loki is a cat. Thor is a dog. They don't get along - until, finally, disastrously, they do.
    I was compiling a list of cat!Loki recs and realized I hadn't yet read this one, so I settled in with it immediately and, oh, it's just one of those perfectly adorable and hilarious little fics! It's the way doggy!Thor's thoughts are so... puppy about everything! The way he watches Loki, especially the way Loki's tail moves and it's so easy to picture that sort of feline grace he has as it's put into cat form. And then there's pouncing and biting of necks and purring and clawing and it's just. Every animal trope you could put into a 655 word fic and I completely love it. Bless this fandom. ♥

Five People Who Were Fazed By Loki Sitting on Thor's Lap by Catspook, thor/loki + avengers, humor, 2.6k
    Thor likes to have Loki sit on his lap, the Avengers think it is weird, and Loki likes to troll them.
    Technically, this isn't actually slash, but the relationship will appeal to those who like them as a pairing as well as the idea is brought up several times in the fic, so, whatever, I what I want, Thor. And, oh, lord, this fic is screamingly funny, to the point that I think I may have read it before, but I still had one moment where I actually was this close to shrieking in my laughter and several more where I giggled quietly to myself, because this is perfect. Loki is an utter troll, Thor finds the whole thing amusing and kind of plays up the oblivious act, and is just content to cuddle Loki whenever the hell he feels like it.

The thing is, though, that it's not entirely cracky, certainly it's humorous, but the way the fic touches on explaining the why of it, why Loki allows this and how he reacts to it, it's just enough for me to kind of really buy it, especially in a universe where the movie events never happened. So, it's a good read just for something heart-warming and happy! But what you're really reading it for is the genuinely clever, brilliant little touches the author puts into the writing for comedy and how utterly beautiful everything is here. The world was a better place after I read this fic, honestly.

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.

Nobody's Perfect by asyndese, thor/loki, nsfw, 1.8k
    Forget a lover's heartfelt token to gain the favor of the maiden. Forget dangerous, desperate promises that could bring down an empire. Nope, not Thor. He simply runs into Jotunheim after a few, well-timed chance encounters with Loki, madly in love with the idea of stealing a poor girl back from the frost giants. All of Loki's effort and secrecy and lies - for naught. Just because Thor is an idiot.
    Okay, this was also just totally fun! It's an AU fic where Loki intends to trick the prince of Asgard so he can steal a bunch of stuff from him, carefully making his plans, and then Thor goes and ruins them by being Thor, by just jaunting off to Jotunheim to steal this poor girl back from the frost giants. It's so delightfully fun and flirtatious while they bicker back and forth as Thor literally hauls him over his shoulder and runs off with him and Loki's like, ugh, fuck, all my careful planning ruined by an idiot and he can't even change back into his proper body because Thor'll kill him, which is going to get really awkward any second now. And it's this really great balance of something almost like a romance novel trope but not quite mixed with hilarious banter and just. I would read the shit out of this all day long, especially with Thor being super handsy and Loki cutting away at him with words (or trying to, because fucking Thor, seriously, he just keeps smiling) and basically it's perfect.

Here's where he meets Prince Charming + New, and a bit alarming by lunik_the_bard, thor/loki, humor, 3.1k
    He was sitting a foot away from Loki's tree stump with his chin on his hands, staring. Loki was losing concentration on his book.
    Oh, a Beauty and the Beast fusion, yes, LET ME AT IT. And this was utterly delightful and hilarious, with Thor as Gaston and Loki as Belle, except this time around they actually do eventually get married! You know, after Thor is entirely, obnoxiously cheerful at him and Loki is acidic enough to cut down nearly everyone in his path. The author does a fantastic job at balancing the Disney movie characters/plot with keeping the Thor characters in spirit with their canon, while still making it a joy to read whenever Thor tries a new tactic with Loki, whenever he's entirely cheerful about preferring Loki when he's being impolite and genuine to when he's placid and polite, whenever Loki finds himself super attracted to Thor which is just totally unfair. Ahhhh, this was so good for me.

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.

Loki is an utter troll, Thor finds the whole thing amusing and kind of plays up the oblivious act, and is just content to cuddle Loki whenever the hell he feels like it.

The thing is, though, that it's not entirely cracky, certainly it's humorous, but the way the fic touches on explaining the why of it, why Loki allows this and how he reacts to it, it's just enough for me to kind of really buy it, especially in a universe where the movie events never happened. So, it's a good read just for something heart-warming and happy! But what you're really reading it for is the genuinely clever, brilliant little touches the author puts into the writing for comedy and how utterly beautiful everything is here. The world was a better place after I read this fic, honestly.

Reasons My Son is Crying by cavaleira [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, implied pregnant!loki, humor, 1.9k
    "I said, would you like to see pictures of my son?" Thor says, and though Eddie is relieved that Thor doesn’t seem angry, he feels utterly dumbfounded by the question. "I… yes? Um, sure Mr. Thor," he manages to choke out, and the smile that crosses Thor’s face is blindingly bright. "Excellent!" Thor says as he slaps Eddie on the back.
    Oh, this fic is pure delight, for several reasons. One, I just enjoy the humor of it and how huge and scary Thor is, except he's now going on about his kids like any overly proud dad, he's so sweet and adorable, yet still terrifying. Two, daddy!Thor is something that I never get enough of in this fandom, so I'm overjoyed at such a delightful fic about it! Three, it's pretty hilarious to see this poor HYDRA grunt seeing pictures of Thor's kids and realizing, oh, he's like that with his brother, oookay then. The pictures that Thor shows--because of course Thor has a zillion pictures of his son on his phone--are sheer delight, the details woven into the story are fantastic, both for humor and because you can tell there's a whole world for these characters, just off the screen. The pictures the author chooses to describe are just exactly the kind that a proud parent would have, but also when Loki shows up in the pictures, it's just even better, especially when told through the eyes of a random villain grunt who cannot escape being shown baby pictures. Hilarious and perfect.
