A Backwards Courtship by Kay (sincere), thor/loki, mildly nsfw, arranged marriage, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, pregnant!loki, 17.7k
    If Thor wants to become King of Asgard, he must first take a frost giant to be his queen. No one is happy with this. And yet, somehow, happiness is found.
    I was really tempted to recommend each of these fics separately, because I enjoyed each of them for different things, but... to be honest, I read them all in one sitting and I'm not sure I could separate them out again at this point. Because, wow, did I tear through these. :9 I actually let out a ridiculous sort of noise when I saw they'd been posted, because I've liked everything I've read by this author and then arrainged marriage with Jotunn!intersex!Loki and eventually babies? Holy shit, it's like it was a Christmas present just for me! And, oh, it was so good. This is a universe where Thor and Loki weren't raised together, so they never affected each other growing up, which means they're a lot brattier here than they would otherwise be in canon, and that works so well, especially as they're forced together and eventually start to care about each other and positively effect each other.

One of the best things about this universe, though, is Loki's characterization, which is pretty exquisite, in the way he's really hard to pin down what he really means. He's polite and manipulative and funny and charming and there's something real there, too, in the way that only Thor's directness and honesty and genuinely growing love for him can bring out. The author uses each of the problems from their bingo card incredibly well, showing different moments along the timeline of their marriage, doing a gorgeous job of showing that they don't actually know each other, because how could they? And the little ways that affects them! So, by the time Thor is asking Loki on a proper date when they've been married for a year already and have a baby as well, it's just... it's a backwards courtship and it's perfect.

The other thing I love, of course, is that the fic has all these sharp edges and moments where things are a bit painful (Loki's reaction to the idea of celebrating their marriage or any time he explains just what he's going through and why his actions may seem so weird, there's this undercurrent of anger that he hides well, but you can feel it sometimes), but it's not a heartbreaking fic. It's fun and cute and light-hearted and does so with fantastic characterization. All my favorite tropes, fantastic writing, excellent characterization, and over 17k of it. Just. Fandom blessed me this day.

My Love Is Like To Ice, And I To Fire by amberfox17, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, 9k
    Post-Avengers, Thor brings Loki to face Odin's decree: he is stripped of his magic and confined to the palace but his true punishment is to be disowned and forced into his jotun form. Thor begins the slow process of trying to repair his relationship with Loki, and along the way discovers five new things about the jotun and one about himself.
    Every once in awhile, you get one of those fics that leaves you feeling satisfied again, that you don't need anything else from the fandom that day, because something was just so good as it was. The fic gave me pretty much everything I could have asked for--lovely writing, lovely characterization, fantastic world building, moments of humor, and the tropes I fucking love in this fandom done in a sharp, clever way. To the point that it's kind of amazing how much the author managed to pack in with under 10k, while still feeling like it didn't skip out on anything. The fic manages to take Loki almost immediately post-Avengers and show the progression of his calming down and his interaction with Thor, that slowly grows into something more, to the resolution of the UST between them, and showing us the future of their relationship, all set against a backdrop of exploring a bit of Jotunn biology and culture.

I never felt short-changed while reading this, the author knew what scenes and moments needed to be shown between the characters and those that could be inferred, so instead of this being a long, grueling process, instead you still feel the weight of it, the time it takes and all the long hours of bitterness and anger and frustration (on both sides) slowly giving way to something better, but it's a happy process. Not that I didn't have my feelings punched a little, but it's overall a happy piece, just very barbed and sharp along the way. Plus, oh, Loki in heat and Thor enjoying the hell out of Loki's intersex form and then the absolutely beautiful, I'm not even little bit kidding A+++ epilogue? Yes, way to make me happy again in this fandom. All of this on top of some satisfying porn where Loki demands Thor to hurry the hell up and fuck him already? Yes, please. Demanding!Loki about Thor taking too long is one of those things I shall never tire of. Never.

This was a fantastic read, one of those I recommend to pretty much anyone, but especially if you're like me and you love these tropes and you love happy endings and you love them working their shit out (and you LOVE LOVE LOVE Frigga interacting with her sons, as well as an A+ moment with Odin at the end), but you love it when it also comes with emotional weight behind it. I am happy once again now.

Black is the color by mjnobody, thor/loki, NSFW, dub-con bordering on non-con, intersex!loki, rough sex, manipulative loki, size kink, 12.6k
    Even the Golden Odinson has a dirty little secret.
    Jesus Christ this fic could have pretty much been written just for me! This is one of those fics that bumps up against the non-con line to the point that some readers may not be comfortable with it, but I found that it worked for me because of two things. One, probably most importantly, is because this is idfic and the writing of the fic wholly embraces that, given the way Thor's actions are treated here and the way the story is tagged. Two, because Thor's treatment of Loki is contrasted against the treatment of other people he has sex with, the way he treats Loki is entirely differenlty from them, how Thor completely loses any arousal he had when his wife is reluctant and upset by their sex, her tears completely kill any desire he had to bed her. And that's entirely genuine, he doesn't enjoy hurting her whatsoever, only continues because he feels obligated by the necessity of the situation. You combine these two things and you have a recipe for a fic that's not going to be for everyone but I found that, by the end of the fic, I was utterly and completely in love.

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

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

Public Punishment by Batsutousai, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, arranged married, mild humiliation, intersex!loki, 2.4k
    Tired of being mocked for his choice of clothing, Loki devises a prank to punish Thor. He may yet regret it.
    There are a few epithets that I would take out of this fic (and I hold with the 616!Thor characterization where he doesn't give a fuck who sees his junk, but this fic needed Thor to care about it, so I totally approve of the choice here!), which I mention just as mild caveats, because the rest of it? Holy fuck, YES. I was initially wary of the humiliation aspect, since I don't do well with secondhand embarrassment, but the author hits the perfect notes for keeping it mild and for Loki having a bit of an exhibitionist streak that he hadn't realized, finding that sweet spot in between the two, that this was still a punishment, but it was an enjoyable one for both of them.

This is a prickly Jotunn!Loki who likes having his own clothing and jewelry instead of the Asgardian style that Thor would have him dress in, who doesn't want to be an As, so there's delicious conflict and bits of worldbuilding here with that. But Thor's temper and determination, the way he is not having any more of Loki's shit, so he fucks Loki in public (it's less weird than it sounds when I say it), so every one can see and that turns Loki on but also teaches him a bit and Thor putting Loki on his cock in that firm handed way of his, all of it is SO GOOD and SO PERFECT. The author strikes this really great blend of Loki being so sharp and cutting, but Thor is more than a match for him, the sheer presence and steamroller nature of him, yet! They still manage to find middle ground together in the greatest moment where Thor's not the nicest person, which had me practically cackling with glee. This was such a great find to read! And really, really hot, jfc.

XVII by stereobone, thor/loki, NSFW, arranged marriage, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, 20k
    The marriage itself is a symbol of peace between Jötunheim and Asgard. The two realms have long been at war but this union is a mark of new times, peace times. Thor just wishes there were another way. He has never even seen his betrothed before, he only knows his name: Loki. He is King Laufey’s second son, and he is to be Thor’s until their death.
    Chapters 1-2: How to even begin this rec, I don't know. Because it's an arranged marriage between Thor and Jotunn!Loki by stereobone, as inspired by those gorgeous arts from marty-mc, only with Loki being older. Flailing and keyboard smashing just doesn't seem to be quite enough! But, oh, I am so deeply in love with this fic already, with everything it's doing to slowly build up the relationship between these two people forced together, the early instant attraction and Loki being prickly and distant, Thor trying to be patient but Loki is maddening and Thor definitely has a temper, but he's still good-hearted and wants to genuinely connect with Loki, wants to help ease him into this new life, and won't take him until Loki wants it as well. These things should probably all be cliche by now, they're certainly tropes, but they're all my favorite things and fic like this is why, because they're sharp as ever and there's such chemistry between them and, ugh, I just love everything about them. FEELINGS, okay.
    Chapters 3-4: I've recommended this fic before, but I do update recs often, there was a significant amount added to this fic, and you do not understand my hunger for and love for arranged marriage AUs. And this one is so wonderful, as it shows the progress of Thor and Loki's relationship over the beginning weeks/months of their marriage, how they go from strangers who are wary of but attracted to each other to people who find that they get along better than expected and are already fond of each other, slowly progressing towards love. It's not quite there yet and I love that about this story, that it shows how far they've come in the careful way Thor treats Loki, the way Loki allows more and more touches and shows more trust, the way Thor defends Loki from malicious gossip (there's also a great scene with Odin about that, too! which just made the fic even better omg) and that just... Loki doesn't know what to do with that. This isn't what he expected at all.

The fic never forgets that Loki is viciously angry, but that never seems to stop Thor or his progression into Loki's affections, it never forgets that Thor is good-hearted in the way he sees Loki, trusts him even when maybe he shouldn't, but is eventually rewarded for that trust. Not just in sex, but in Loki opening up to him emotionally, and all of this sounds so... trope-heavy and cliche and maybe it is, but it's the kind of fics that keep the tropes sharp and shows why they have such enduring popularity. There's even world building and a trip to Alfheim and resolution to the sexual tension between them and, jfc, when Thor is exploring Loki's vulva for the first time with his fingers, when Loki is goading Thor into ducking him even harder, it is so intensely good for me even beyond all the other things I love about this fic. And, bleh, coherency is for weenies, I'll do a better rec for this fic later, hopefully I can wait until it's finished, at least.
    Chapters 5: I tried really, really hard not to immediately pounce on/rec this chapter, I was trying to wait until the final chapter had been posted and then do a rec then. But then there was Thor going down on intersex!Loki and that is not a thing that I can easily resist! So, there's that satisfaction (because it was really hot, but also really sweet, which is a great combination and fits with the tone of this chapter especially well), but there's also a lot of sweeter moments in this chapter, just the two of them spending time together and getting to know each other. One of the best things about arranged marriage fics is the slow crossing of that distance between them, the learning to communicate with each other in a way that they're forced to more openly recognize, and the sharing of things with each other. And, as much as the cliffhanger in this chapter is frustrating (in the way it's supposed to be), I also love it because it shows just how far their relationship has come, when they're faced with a difficult choice and all the complications that come with it.
    Chapters [all]: I would say that you don't understand my love of arranged marriages, but I think this fandom probably does. But, oh, man, I really do love them and seeing a fic that's an arranged marriage AU will automatically make me click on your fic to read it, which so often nets me excellent stories like this one. I've done recs for the fic as a WIP, but now that it's finished, I wanted to do one final one, because I've been thinking/talking about what makes certain authors appealing lately and my feeling is that some of them just have this solid charisma to their stories, the indefinable quality that draws me in and I can always count on getting something that's worth my time. I think this author has that, so even if I can't point specifically to anything new being done here, that doesn't mean I didn't fall right into the delight of seeing each new chapter coming out, it didn't mean that I wasn't just about rolling around on my bed in happiness while reading.

One thing I can specifically point to, however, is that the fic does a fantastic job of balancing that everything in this universe is good, that it's happy here, that things will work out even when difficult decisions have to be made or people feel torn about what to do without sacrificing the emotional weight of it. It's not pure fluff, but yet I can trust it. And I love that Laufey is good in this universe, that he's protective of his child, which further helps that this is a happy and good universe, which I really need sometimes. Add in that the writing is just so smooth and easy to slide into and I have a fic that was a great joy to read.

Apparatus by berlynn_wohl, thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, 2.6k
    "Is this another one of your tricks?"
    Perfect. It's like a story being told! And there is delightful characterization, some really lovely lines of dialogue, and Loki being catty yet adorable, with Thor being... just Thor. There's that undercurrent of Thor being fine with whatever Loki is, it's all part of the greater whole of Loki, which is perfect for the character, especially when Thor's eager to explore him and get at him already. This is along with the really delicious sex, the exploration of Loki's body and the delightful use of not just his cunt, but also his ass, because that was next on Thor's list and, oh, man, yes. Thor being happy to just totally wreck Loki is, like, the best thing for me. This was a wonderful fic to read today!

Don't Call Me Dulcinea by xpnkitty, thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, 5.4k
    He’s smirking when they bring him into containment on the hellicarrier. In fact, he’s smirking right up to the moment they close the door, and with a whoosh of air Loki’s undone.
    I was a little dubious of this fic when I first started reading, because Loki was so crushed and trying to hide himself away, even when, okay, yeah, in this scenario, S.H.I.E.L.D. had managed to strip of his magic and that forced him into reverting to his Jotunn form and even took his clothes so that he couldn't hide, crushing him under the weight of humiliation, but... by the time Thor had picked him up and dragged him off, I was warming up to the fic a lot (and felt that it was justified in the characterization, just not along my lines of usual thinking, which is an important distinction to my mind) and then there was intersex!Loki and how much he loathed himself in that sharp, cutting way that I knew so much better and Thor refusing to let Loki just go on hating himself, because he loved Loki so much, and then there was super hot sexy times. What made this work--aside from the excellent intersex!Loki porn, bless you, author--is that Loki eventually found his footing again and was full of so much anger, even when he loved Thor and it didn't really fix everything. Things are better here, but not perfect and that's the best way for fics like this to end.

Waiting for the Moon to Rise by cavaleira, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, king!thor, prostitution/brothel au, 77.8k
    As the newly crowned king of Asgard, Thor's life is filled with stress as he as he navigates political intrigue and struggles to figure out what kind of king he wants to be. Desperately in need of a night of relaxation, he finds himself at a brothel he used to frequent in his youth. It's there that Thor spends an evening in the arms of beautiful courtesan named Loki, and his whole world changes in ways he never could have imagined.
    I'm going to write such a terrible rec for this fic, because I practically inhaled all four available chapters at the time of this rec and couldn't put it down. The first thing I thought about this fic (and the first thing that made me fall in love with it) is that it's practically an ode to Loki's cunt and that is exactly the fic I needed to read. But it's also themed on a greater level on what the heart of their relationship is--Loki caring for Thor in a way that's all about him trying to remain distant and unaffected, manipulativing him and goading him for fun and profit, but biting off more than he can chew, until eventually Thor has completely undone him, half by simply being Thor and half because Thor is insightful and wants to see more of him. There are moments along the way where already Loki is precarious about being cracked open, but he's managed to hit it thus far, whether on a moan as Thor fucks him harder or by playing it off as a game. But this Thor is observant and thoughtful, so while he may not have a mind like Loki's, he still sees Loki. And each time they meet again, that connection gets stronger.

This is layered over by lovely details and bits of world-building and political intrigue, where the fic is careful to not have Loki overstep his bounds (until he does, because that's what needed to happen, because that's yet another way the fic shows the growing connection between them and it was both organic and necessary), and all of this works together marvelously well. And then the sex is ridiculously hot, whether Loki rides Thor or Thor licks his way into Loki or puts one leg over Thor's shoulder and fucks him hard. This is a god in bed, who enjoys taking Loki apart with his cock or his tongue, that perfect balance of how Thor likes giving Loki pleasure, in a way that's well-intentioned, but also that Thor simply enjoys doing this to loki, enjoys rolling him over to slide his cock right back in, enjoys going after him aggressively and yet respectfully, that the combination of those things is Thor. And, as mentioned, this is practically a love letter to Loki's cunt, whether with Thor's tongue or his fingers or his cock, and I love that that's practically a central theme of the fic, because I love when Loki's vulva is given such a central role in sex, that it's not just a one-time thing, but that it's beautiful and ridiculously good to read about every single time. I want more and more of exactly this kind of sex scene, where a vulva is the celebrated center of the sex scenes. *__*

This fic is everything I want from courtesan!Loki fic and I am greedy for more in this same vein, that they step closer and closer to something real, that every bit of worship to Loki's cunt strengthens the feelings and the narrative structure and themes of this fic. And the characterizations are exquisite, that this fic balances them both well, that Loki is a sharp blade, but Thor is this incredible presence that Loki cannot help but be drawn to and bowled over by, that their relationship keeps the same spirit as the canon, with every time Loki tries to stay at arm's length, tries to use emotion as a weapon to weild, only to be disarmed by Thor, who does not turn it back on him, yet still manages to lay him open anyway. And Thor cares and loves deeply, this brilliant person before him, this one who helps him to see more politically savvy points in his court, who balances his world view. Ahhhh, this was so good for me!
    Update rec for chapter 5: I hardly know where to start with this update, because it was so long and satisfying (over 15k for this chapter alone!). One of the central themes to the overall fic is continued here in what is practically an ode to Loki's cunt and how wonderful it is, which is one of my very favorite things about the fic, even if I have many favorite things about it. It's also... there's squirting in this chapter and it's fantastic, it's dirty and cheerful and enthusiastic and adoring of Loki's cunt and that's one of the things that has done me so much good in this fandom, that female parts are incredibly beloved and actually paid attention to and that there's such sustained enthusiasm for them! All the more fantastic because Thor loves doing this to Loki, loves writing this from him, and it's ridiculously hot, omg. Every time attention is paid to Loki's enture cunt, it's utterly fantastic and this chapter is no exception. *__*

But there's also more details from tehir childhoods, little touches that are utterly charming and show how Loki opens up to Thor and how the emotions between them progress and become all the clearer in this chapter. There's also lovely interaction with Sif and you see Thor becoming more thoughtful especially in these scenes, and it's lovely! The use of books and flowers are also lovely, with just enough detail and meaning put into them to add even more richness to the story being told! But, man, the sex. When Thor loves fucking into Loki, when he's so good at fucking like a beast bcause it's Loki and Thor can't hold back with him, how that's good just for reading the sex, but also in showing that that's how Thor expresses affection for Loki, by the way he wants to fuck into Loki at all times, when Loki's orgasms are so intense, when you can feel how much he enjoys Thor's fucking, etc. It's all just ridiculously good for me.

But you know what else really turns me on about this fic? That it's a courtesan AU fic that is a slow build and takes time to lay the pieces down that are necessary, where it isn't just that they instantly fall in love and the king of Asgard trusts a Jotunn courtesan with everything. There are doubts expressed by people who love Thor and genuinely want the best for him and for Asgard, who are willing to try believing, and are narrative on the side of good, too. There's Thor recognizing how this may look to others, but Thor lives by his instincts and his heart, which is such a Thor thing to do, even when Loki has shown moments of obviously not being honest or entirely trustworthy, when we know that there's more complications and machinations going on here. This is a story that keeps all those elements in, while still also keeping the sheer glee and joy of reading a "Thor falls in love with Jotunn courtesan Loki" fic, which, lbr, if this had been angsty and cruel and painful, it wouldn't have been anywhere near as much fun to read. There are serious moments that make you feel for the characters, but it also embraces the trope it's writing about, so it becomes that blend of idfic that's genuinely good and well structured. Fucking bless, okay.
    Update rec for chapter 6-7: I've recommended this fic before, but I wanted to write a rec again now that chapters six and seven have been posted! These last two chapters (well, one is an epilogue) don't have any sex in them, but I found that I didn't mind, not after the loving dedication to Loki's cunt of this fic in previous chapters (not that I won't always take more of Loki's female bits, because I love him so very much) and how this wraps up the story so very well. I mean, I want the lovingly detailed attention paid to Loki's cunt evry time, I didn't want anything else while reading it! But I don't mind the focus on the relationship and the cautious next step they took here, that it was instead about the feelings and things that are coming to a head, as is necessary to close the fic out and to have them progress forward.

There are some lovely lines of description here--my favorite, I think, is "Loki was a very talented sorcerer and he knew power when he felt it. And what Thor possessed could conquer realms and obliterate mountains into dust. Thor was joyful and wild, eyes blazing and hair whipping in the wind. He looked dangerous, and Loki felt a flush a desire shoot through him because he had always courted danger." because it does a beautiful job of showing this larger than life presence Thor has, while showing Loki's sharp edges and how he gets swept up in the storm of Thor and how he thrills at it, the danger he dances around, when it comes to Thor. It's a nicely done bit of character insight, as Loki realizes how much he loves Thor and cannot deny that, even as he tries to hold himself back. They're in different circumstances in this universe from the canon versions, but their spirits remain the same in moments just like that!

These chapters were a satisfying conclusion to a fic I enjoyed immensely, it was warm and comfortable to read, there was something a little sweet about the time they spent together here, under all the other stuff going on with them. It's an epic fic, a love story with a grand background, a prickly and sharp Loki, a Thor who knows what he wants and coaxes Loki out not unlike one would a stray cat, by being direct and honest and grabbing what he wants for them, but not in a crushing grip, instead a consistent and genuine approach. And sly, seductive Loki who still has so far to go, even at the end, but manages to take that step foward! So good for me, ahhhh. Especially lines like how Thor would fight for him but wouldn't chain him down. Ahhh, yessss, that's what I want. ♥ It's hard to believe this fic was almost 80k, it certainly sailed along more quickly than that--yet, at the same time, was entirely satisfying and perfectly finished up. Bless.

Black As Coal by Runie (Runic), thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, arranged marriage, intersex!loki, happy ending, 6k
    It is tradition for the Æsir to give cats to new brides. For Loki, the little kitten Thor gifts to him is all he has, until he falls into a conspiracy to rid Thor of his Jotun Queen.
    I could have sworn I wrote a rec for this already... and then utterly couldn't find it in my notes! Which is a shame because this fic did a hell of a lot for me the night I read it, where I'd tried several different fics that I just wasn't feeling, leaving me grumpy and restless, like I couldn't find anything I liked to read! I didn't know if it was me or I just hit a bad run, but it was kind of ruining my night, that I felt like all these stories were slipping through my fingers. Then I read this and just... settled down and it focused me and kept my attention and was an utter delight to read, so this one is precious to me just for that. But it's also that it's all the tropes I love, where Thor and Loki are in an arranged marriage that's not about love at all, where it's angsty but you know it'll work out, so it's fun to read about Loki's isolation and the bonding he does with the cat that Thor gives him, and the tension between the two of them before they work their shit out.

By the ending, it's happiness and domestic joy, which I love, I love fluffy things, and everything is perfect, which is exactly what I wanted. There's such charm and heart to this fic that I read the whole thing in one sitting and just felt so much better about fandom and my reading time! Plus, ahhhh, there's some really delicious porn that I found very satisfying, and... I guess that's what this fic is to me! It was satisfying and perfectly timed and made me really, genuinely happy. ♥

Boom Baby Boom by Runie (Runic), thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, 1.7k
    There is a certain Jotun Ambassador that is rather skilled at getting under Thor’s skin.
    This was perfect for me today, because it's Jotunn!Loki being a little shit who goads Thor into angry sex, then there's wall sex, then babies!! There's some adorable happy family fluff after that, where they have a whole brood of children and doting grandparents, which is super fluffy, but I'm not kidding that this is exactly what I wanted today and how much better I felt after reading this. My heart is lighter and I'm in a better mood and just. Things are good again! ♥

The Witch-King and His Husband by Metallic_Sweet, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, jotunn!thor, 4.8k
    When Jotunheim triumphed over Asgard, it was agreed that Asgard's golden son would wed the first witch born into the royal family of Jotunheim in well over ten thousand years. In which Thor grows up on Jotunheim, largely alone, waiting for Loki to grow old enough to rule.
    This fic is a little tell-rather-than-show, but it's a fun piece to read and does solidly well at being a fic about Thor raised on Jotunheim. The best part of the fic is Loki being slowly cracked open by Thor, genuinely loving him, and how surprisingly sweet and good their relationship is in a world that could have made it really nasty. So, while reading this, while it's bettersweet or difficult in some places, it left me with a warm, positive feeling about the Thor/Loki relationship that I enjoyed a lot. And, oh, man, do I love when Thor is tasting Loki's cunt to make him writhing and when Loki rides Thor's cock, these are some of my favorite things pretty much ever! The fairy tale elements are nicely done, which helps the overall structure of the fic as well as just simply is a delight to read.

Cherished by Runie (Runic), thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, pregnant!loki, 6.9k
    "This is another of your tricks, made worse by the fact you brought Mother into it. You expect me to fight for your freedom after what you have done? Nay, Loki, I shall not, nor will I believe you carry my child." "What did you think would happen when a fertility god could not stop himself from rutting into my reproductive parts!"
    Oh, this was so much fun and just what I wanted! Intersex!Loki goads thor into fucking him in the dungeons and, as a god of fertility, of course Loki gets pregnant. That is a set-up that I will read pretty much every time, because it nets me gems like this one! I love that everything around Thor grows and Loki is no exception. ♥ And it's a fluffier fic, but it doesn't forget Thor's anger or resolve it, it doesn't make Loki any more suddenly regretful, yet it won't break your heart, either! I enjoyed both Frigga and Odin's scenes in this as well, plus some really satisfying porn that focused on Loki's cunt, all of this made me happy as well. The whole thing just make me light and warm-hearted today, in a way that I'm terrible at expressing, but is completely genuine and without irony. I'm just happy after reading this!

    featuring nervous, intersex!Loki getting cunnilingus from Thor for the first time
    Oh, man, I am all over this intersex!Loki trend as of late, especially with Thor eating Loki out, and I want every last fic about it, especially when it's written like this, where it's warm and happy and enthusiastic and makes my heart ridiculously glad. There's just enough background world-building with Loki knowing he's different and how he's hidden his dual parts, which leads up to why he's so nervous about the first time he'll show Thor, but it's perfect because Thor is just so delighted by him, just so eager to taste him and love him and get right in there. I love it I love it I love it. Like, that is a shot straight to my heart, when Thor is just hungry for Loki and thinks him gorgeous like this. Add into that the really delicious sex, with Thor slowly bringing Loki out of his defensive mood, until Loki was writhing against his mouth, because Thor was slowly working his clit until Loki was an utter mess and greedy for more of Thor. Just. Yes, leave me here to wallow in feels and porn, the best combination there is.

A Prelude by umakoo, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, 10k
    Thor is young and reckless, eager to slay one of the ferocious frost giants and have the skalds sing songs of his mighty deed. He sneaks into Jötunheimr, but the giant he meets is nothing like the hulking, bloodthirsty creatures from the age-old stories they tell in Asgard.
    I got to test read this fic and I am still ridiculously pleased about that, because it's such a great story and it resonated with me so strongly. This is an AU, with Jotunn!Loki and a younger, more arrogant Thor, but it keeps entirely to the spirit of both characters while balancing that against them having grown up in different circumstances. There's a comfort level with the mythology here that makes the melding of it with the Marvel characters feel natural and seemless, all these little details make their way into the background world that's built here, so you can feel how much time and care the author has given this world, without feeling like you're being info dumped on. But it's also in the way these characters are so recognizable to me! Loki's cunning and sharp edges, Thor's arrogance and good nature, the banter between them showing off both of these things beautifully, like how the fic does a brilliant job of knowing when an insult would roll right off of Thor, when it would make him laugh, but also when another would make him genuinely angry. Or when Loki would swipe viciously over one particular comment and then just smile like he's got a secret over another, we only know so much about him as we see the fic through Thor's eyes, but you can feel how much more there is to the character and how this is a Loki who'd grown up in this Jotunheim.

In addition to all the attention put into the characters, there's also some truly fantastic sex. Intersex!Loki is perfect, the fic strikes a balance between the newness of each other and how well they work together even in these circumstances and, ahhhh, it's so good for me when Thor takes his time to explore Loki, who clearly enjoys the attention, the presence of both cock and vulva, the going down on Loki to taste him, all parts of him, the satisfaction of when Thor finally fucks into him, the safterwards when Thor's seed spills back out, jfc, that was really good. And, hell, there's still yet more to this fic, including stirrings of future trouble for Loki, more world-building details that are lightly touched on, a genuinely unsettling presence that approaches them later, and more. The author clearly crafted a whole world here and it shows well in just this one fic, even if there's totally also room for a sequel. ♥

Hammer, Horn, and Heart by umakoo, thor/loki + loki/mjolnir, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, in heat!loki, berserker!thor, mythology, NSFW, 10k
    Thor often chose to visit him in the summer, for his golden skin was not made to withstand the cruel winters of Loki’s homeland. They would hunt together and feast together, tell stories and sing songs, spar and play and roam the land. Sometimes they bickered and came to blows, but no argument ever kept them from fucking for days on end, taking pleasure from each other’s bodies until their youthful lust was sated.
    This is a sequel to A Prelude, which should probably be read first, but, ahhh, this fic is such a fantastic follow-up to that one, it keeps doing all the right things and hitting all the right buttons for me, so much that I'm left fearing a terribly incoherent rec once again. The fic continues to have that level of comfort and easy familiarity with the mythology, so that this truly feels like a fusion of both mythology and Marvel characters, it blends them seemlessly and feels very natural to read. The fic continues to have a strong sense of the world these characters inhabit, so many little details of culture and background world building worked into the story (instead of just being infodumped on the reader), but also a strong sense of who both of these characters are. I love the way this author writes both of them, Loki with his fierce independence even as he's lonely and rather dearly wants to stay with/go with Thor, and Thor with his temper and cheerful good nature and how he clearly cares deeply about Loki but doesn't push too hard.

And, oh, when berserker!Thor happens, not only was it already an excellent action scene (I LOVE ACTION SCENES, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH, especially when they're written as super badass Thor against a terrible and fearsome foe like Angrboda, making it feel like a truly epic battle adventure of gods), but berserker!Thor is pretty goddamned terrifying. That's one of the things that this fic does so well, it balances Loki's sharp cunning and wily ways against the brewing storm that is Thor, I truly felt the god-like presence of Thor, especially in that fight. It balances that these two characters clearly care so much about each other, Loki trying not to be vulnerable but can't help how much he cares, Thor not wanting to put Loki in a cage or force him into anything but wanting to take Loki with him, wanting children with Loki, wanting more from him.

So, by the time the fic ends, I love that it's not about being super saccharine, but it's a happy ending, it's the perfect note the story needed to end on, right down to the words said to each other and the way they resolve their arguments. And I love that they do argue here, that it's a major part of the story that they fight just as fiercely as they fuck, because I love me some fluff for always, but my favorite is when they snarl and yell at each other just as much as they wrap themselves up in each other and fuck for days. Which, by the way, they definitely do as well. And, oh, the sex in this fic is so good for me, because it's intersex!Loki and there's Loki riding Thor's hand and then there's sex with Mjolnir that works so incredibly well because it's a combination of things, of respect for Mjolnir, there's clearly great affection from the author and the characters, so this is something glorious, not just a handy sex tool, but also because of the seidr and faint lightning Thor runs through, jfc, that was really good, and EVEN THEN THEY'RE NOT DONE, when Loki is on his hands as knees as Thor fucks into him and just. It's lengthy sex that hits so, so many of my kinks and is super hot and wonderfully characterized and truly feels like this is how gods fuck.

The entire story feels like a story about gods, really. The entire time I was reading, it felt like this is one of those adventures that's part of their epic mythologies, that further working with the feel of blending in the mythology here. So, to recap. Beautiful characterization (and in case I hadn't mentioned it, do you know how much I love that Thor is forever touching Loki in various ways, not always about sex, just that Thor is a very physical person, not even anything being made of it here, he just is), beautiful world building/blending of mythology into the characters, fantastic battle scene, an emotionally satisfying ending, and super satisfying sex. That's it, I'm done now, go on without me, I can't go any further.

Of Gods and Monsters by umakoo, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, 10k
    Moonlight shone in through the high windows and the cracks in the walls, creating a pale halo around Thor’s wooden frame. Loki laid his hand on the skillfully carved Mjöllnir that stood between the idol’s feet, tracing the patterns and runes with his fingers. He could not ignore the fact that the Thunderer held the place of honor in the mortals’ place of worship.
    This is the third part in a series that should be read in order.
    I really am just completely in love with this series, it's so good, it's a gorgeous mix of a more Norse mythology-based story with Viking culture, without losing that these are still well connected to the MCU versions. This fic in particular delighted me for it, because you can feel Loki's envy and darker moments are still there, even though they've been tempered by different circumstances growing up, there's still the issue of dealing with how he (doesn't) fit in with the rest of Asgard, there's his envy of Thor, his posseessiveness of Thor, the envy that roils up in him, these things will always be part of Loki. And, yet, this is a brighter, happier universe where they don't have the same looming tragedy hanging over them, even if not everything is perfect and sunshiney. It's just a really good mix of the two.

Yet, as much as I love this Loki (and, boy, do I!) I think I love the story even more for Thor, who feels right here, who has a good-natured personality, who enjoys being with other people, who enjoys helping, who feels responsibility towards others that he should protect, but there's also a temper to him, and a weight to the character. You can feel how much thought the author put into the characters, as much as was put into the world around them, which makes it all the better! There's thought for each of the characters, how they would be in this world, and how they would interact with each other, so when Thor knows how to find Loki (or the implications that they still have epic fights, just that they always return to each other again) or they spend time away from Asgard by themselves, content to hunt and fuck and travel together, it's just so good.

And then there's the sex. These are gods who fuck, who clearly enjoy each others' bodies, how it's almost filthy what they do to each other, except it's also sweet and so clearly fun for everyone involved! Which makes everything extra hot, unf. There's so much care in the fucking, so much adoration between them, even as they're still very clearly Thor and Loki, that it just warms me and reminds me that happier fics need not lose any of their sharpness! And then there's an excellent final couple of scenes, where Loki makes some important decisions, and the author crafts those scenes beautifully as well for how they're built up and meaningful to these characters. Just a really great read all the way around.

    Part four in my Jotun AU series in which Thor and Loki have their first child.
    This is the fourth in a series, which helps to read in order, but if you absolutely wanted to, you could read this one on its own, I think.
    There is so much I want to say about this fic, but I fear it's going to be one of those recs that only captures a fraction of what I adored about it, because every scene has so much going on with it, every scene has a point to it and further explores an aspect of this univverse that's interesting and full of feelings, and it leaves the fic with such a rich, lush feeling to it, even beyond the Norse mythology elements that have been married to the spirits of the MCU characters. I remark each time I do a rec for a fic in this series, on how well blended the Norse mythology elements are with the characters from the MCU, how it's clearly both mixed together, in a really organic and incredible way. I would recommend this fic just for that! But it's also in the way the author has clearly spent a lot of time expanding this world and having a strong view of it, which isn't info dumped onto the reader, but instead worked in with little touches, so that everything feels very fully realized! And I love writing like that!

That it comes with dometic fluff that still carries emotional weight and includes Jotunn!Loki and pregnant!Loki and that kind of cheerful, enthusiastic porn that I like is just even more of a bonus. I love how much culture there is in the writing here, both for their time in Asgard and for the bits of his own history that Loki brings with him, when it's something as simple as the paint he marks himself with or the food that's served or the rooms they inhabit. I love that another way to keep the spirit of the characters is that Loki has an absolutely beautiful relationship with Frigga here, which isn't the same as it is in the MCU, it can't be, but I still felt like this is how they would be if they had these contexts to them! And this Odin is absolutely SPOT ON, with the balancing of being as old as he is with as wise as he is with as much of a king as he is and with as much of a father as he is. I found myself really struck by his character especially on the second time through, when I had a stronger sense of what he was thinking, and that's exactly how Odin should be! Everything was perfect with him, everything was perfect with Frigga and how gentle and motherly she is, without sacrificing that steel core she has.

With those scenes, it added to the domestic fluff feeling of the story, which I absolutely loved, but it was more than that. This Thor and Loki obviously deeply love each other and they have a rock solid relationship, but it's not perfect. This Loki is still prickly and this Thor still sticks his foot in his mouth sometimes, but this Loki is also able to be more open about his vulnerability and this Thor is able to be calmer about supporting Loki through the pregnancy, so it's fluffy, but not too sickly sweet, not in any scene. And, oh, this is everything I love about pregnant!Loki, it hits all the tropes while still keeping them sharp and fresh, so you understand why they became tropes in the first place. And I love that there's focus on the actual birth and the kid after the birth and that sweetness of when you have a baby to hold in your arms, that little miracle of life, for both Thor and Loki as new parents.

Not everything is perfect, Loki is still a Jotunn in Asgard, which comes up a few times in the fic, but it too feels natural and organic to the storyline, one that is almost sort of necessary. Plus, it gives Thor a chance to fuck Loki in a place where they can sort of be overheard because let them hear and OH MAN GIVE ME THAT ALWAYS. Because I love how much these two really enjoy fucking, how Thor enjoys seeing Loki writhe in pleasure and how absolutely greedy for that Loki is, it's charming and heart-warming and all the hotter for it. Combine that with the deliciousness of anxiety over expecting a baby and how that brings up a lot of Loki's issues and it's a bumpy road at times, but there's genuine kindness and just. Ahhhh, it's so good, especially if you're looking for something to make you feel all warm and happy while reading it.

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. ♥

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.

    For Loki and Thor's millennial anniversary, the Jotunheimr royal court comes to visit. Laufey is unperturbed by Loki's choice of gender, Odin is willing to give the frost giants the benefit of the doubt, and Loki wears a corset. Because Darcy said it would be good. And Darcy was right, as it turns out.
    I spent the first half of this fic partically rolling around in it like it was catnip, because it's everything I love and wanted to read! Super fluffy Thor/Loki anniversary, cracky antics around them, doting and over protective Laufey, Loki shifting to female form, wearing a corset, pet names, snarky banter that's a little catty and a lot sunny (for Loki and Thor respectively) and entirely full of love. It's just pure screaming fun in the first half! But the second half. Jesus Christ, I was ruined for the rest of the goddamned night after reading this. Loki stays in the corset and Thor enjoys the feel of Loki's stockings against him while he's got Loki's legs over his shoulders and is lucking his way into Loki's cunt, and it's a perfect balance of Thor wanting to give pleasure, enjoying taking Loki apart until he's a wreck, and being cheerfully direct and forthright about what he's doing to Loki. the focus on Loki's vulva, the descriptions usef for how Thor eats him out, they're ridiculously hot and really good for me sex, goddamn. The light teasing, the way Loki crabs the whole way until he's a mess, the way Thor then puts Loki on his hands and knees and fucks hinto him while holding on to the corset Loki is still wearing? Everything was entirely in my wheelhouse and I honestly couldn't read anything else for the rest of the night. This was the best combination of happiness and night-ruining porn I could have asked for!

    Thor was not blind to those at court who were of the opinion that Loki was entirely too full of himself.
    I sat on this rec for a bit because there were only three chapters of this fic (at the time of the rec) so far and they're all fairly short. But this author gets so much in with each of these posts, already building quite a lot of background world for this politically intriguing AU where Loki is Thor's half-brother and a half-Jotun concubine, but still so incredibly Loki. He is all sharp words and lashing back before he thinks, except there's genuine love for Thor, who just loves him so much and clever lines of dialogue and, ugh, I just want this to be a fully realized fic so badly. All the moreso because Frigga is absolutely AMAZING in the third part, jfc, I love her and Thor and Loki and everyone.

The Plate of Fidelity and Harmonious Love by smuttysmuttysmut, thor/loki + other asgardians + jarnsaxa, NSFW, arranged marriage, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, 6.1k
    Loki and Thor are going to be married to each other. There are lots of preparations at stake. And numerous customs and rituals have to take place.
    I find myself at a bit of a loss for how to describe this fic (other than a note to read the original prompt because that's pretty accurate) and to convey just what it was about it that I found so fascinating. I was wary when I started this, because it sounded like it could go the route of too much second hand embarrassment for me, but I love arranged marriage fic and so I wanted to at least give it a shot. And the thing about this is that the author does a fantastic job of getting in the original prompt's requests (forced bath, inspection for virginity/fertility, public consumation) and yet being almost kind about it, having the people around Loki being firm but not cruel, being as gentle as they can. And that's what just made this fic for me. The fic didn't shy away from how this was more than a little terrifying for Jotunn!Loki who was being married off to Asgard's Prince Thor, making the reader feel such empathy for him, and yet....

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

A Fine Match by Smuttysmutwriter, thor/loki + farbauti/laufey + other jotnar, NSFW, arranged marriage, 9.8k
    A look at Loki and Thor's day the morning after and what lead up to the wedding...
    This is a sequel to The Plate of Fidelity and Harmonious Love, which really needs to have been read first.
    I enjoyed the previous fic to this a lot, so I was excited about the prospect of a sequel, but ahhhhh I did not expect to love it quite as much as I did. It's just. Everything of why I read AU fic and arranged marriage fic! The balance of everything the author put in here is so delightful to me that I'm having a hell of a time writing this rec, because I want to point out all of what the author did right (world building! characterization! fleshing out Loki's relationships with his family! the newness of his life after marriage being overwhelming! Loki's sharp tongue is forever and always part of him! a sense of humor at the right moments! super hot sex! all of the things!!), I want to talk about them coherently instead of just flailing all over the place. But I'm having a hard time doing that because, ahhhhh, this fic is so much what I wanted! When you get arranged marriage fics like this, it would be all too easy to not quite do something right, either there's not enough world building or else it takes the place of characterization or else it's too fluffy or too harsh. But this fic just hit all the right notes for me!

Yes, it's happy and the only angst really comes from culture clash and Loki's displacement, but it's not cruel and there are good things to be found in his new life, given time. And, oh, Thor clearly is taken with him and wants him and cannot keep his hands to himself, but he's also not a jerk about it, even if he is overwhelming at times. Which, well, that's Thor for you. He's a good spirit, but he's naturally a steamroller if he's not keeping a tight lid on it and I love that I felt both aspects of that here--that Thor is just so enthusiastic and direct with Loki, but that he's also capable of choosing to back off when it's better for Loki.

At the same time, the fic builds a background for Loki (Laufey and Farbauti are a delight in their few scenes, as well as an absolute treasure of a scene with Loki and his brothers) and for his new life in Asgard (Thor taking Loki to the stables was a wonderful scene), which is one of my favorite things in fic. And all of that is even before the fic gets to the sex and I love that there's a sense of newness to this, a bit of culture clash, but also a genuine enthusiasm (which I love with Jotunn!Loki fics, where Thor just wants to touch him and taste him and fuck him all the time) and it didn't even need to be more than a handful of paragraphs long to be super fucking hot. The author does a lovely job of just... getting in everything that I wanted, of clearly having given this world thought (which makes it feel much more organic and natural, when situations come up) and, oh, manipulative!Loki winding Thor around his fingers, knowing the best time to ask for something he wants, letting the reader know that he's going to be quite the handful, of this being a happy world, but still sharp and clever. That just sends me into orbit like I cannot even convey.

    Thor/intersexed!Jotun!Loki, Loki is not exactly what the Avengers expected
    So, the prompt for this one was interesting, in which Thor brings his husband/wife/whatever to meet the Avengers, who is not at all what they expected because they honestly couldn't imagine anything by Thor's descriptions, but then they actually meet Loki and a;sdkfjal;ksj shit that's hot. It's a short piece, enough to fit in one lj comment, but it hits so many of the things I want and ahhhh it's so much fun and so good and I would totally read more of that universe, especially with the Avengers interacting with Loki. This was just a charming and delightful fill!

    Based off of this. The jotun are seen as savage beasts by the Aesir, a thing to be used and thrown away. Thor takes up this challenge and finds more than he expected.
    This was an interesting fic! It does sort of jar up against my feeling of how the Aesir would be fine with having half-Frost Giant children and leaving them on Jotunheim and the writing is a bit stiff, but it's an interesting idea and I love that it's an explanation for the occasional Jotunn runt like Loki and I like that it was a surprisingly sweet fic, that Thor falls in love with this Loki because, even if they can't communicate with each other, somehow it's still Loki. There's a lot of potential in this fic and I'm intrigued by the world building here and it was adorable at the right moments and I enjoyed it. And, yeah, okay, I'm pretty weak to Thor and Loki actually having a kid, shut up. XD

    First Rec: Sometimes you find one of those fics that has so many of the things that you want, that you could just roll around on the bed and hug your reader to yourself in joy, because you've been pining for a fic like it. Or, possibly, that's just me. Whatever. I have a new fic to wait anxiously for updates on and I'm not going to let anyone ruin my joy in that! Because, wow, bratty Loki who is doted on by his parents and a bit of world building on Jotunheim and magical shenanigans and they invaded Midgard so they could give it to their precious baby Loki, you have no idea how hard I am smiling over that, because, fuck yes, give me that right now.

I love Loki's relationship with his parents and his siblings, how they're all snarky and sassy in their own ways, but Loki is especially bratty! And I love how you can still see him as Loki, with a chip on his shoulder even as he knows he's loved and too smart of his own good and a little shit and a magical genius and he just goes ahead and does whatever he wants to do. And all of that is even before he gets to Asgard (where the dark elf's description of Jotunheim's bratty little prince is perfection), where he'll of course run into Thor. Eventually, there should be arranged marriages and intersex!Loki and more good!Jotunheim family and, ugh, I want all of it right now, please.

    Thor had three fingers buried deep inside Loki’s cunt, making him writhe against the bed in pleasure.
    I freely admit bias, as this was a fic for my birthday and I share a lot of preferences with the author, but have a deep and abiding love of several things this fic does--intersex!Loki, who is being thoroughly fucked until he's a puddle of goo and cannot be too cranky at Thor for it, plus finger fucking. And also Thor fucking Loki through his orgasm, like, yes, that is a thing I want, especially because Thor as being kind of a cheerfully obnoxious dick about just completely undoing his brother is always a thing I want forever. Also, cuddles. I want cuddles forever.

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.

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. ♥

Table Manners by Wordbytes, thor/loki, intersex!loki, in heat!loki, implied eventual pregnant!loki, knotting, arranged marriage, NSFW, 7k
    Thor figures out a clever way so that he can give Loki what he really wants. A secure place right next to the throne, and a future together.
    The writing is stiff in places in this fic and this is definitely fluffy!Loki who doesn't have much anger left in him at all, but, holy crap, this could have just about been written directly for me! Loki is loved dearly by his family, he's back home in Asgard and reinstated, he's in love with Thor, and it's decided that he's going to marry Thor (for various reasons, because it'll make them both happy, because Frigga knows that all roads will lead to them being together eventually anyway), and then it busts out even more things I love. Intersex!Loki and he goes into heat on their wedding night and a lengthy, really satisfying sex scene and everything is happy and works out and there's knotting and they're eventually going to have a child and it's just. You could not imagine how much these tropes are like the best comfort blanket to me, how charming and delightful I could this fic. I mean, it's definitely for those who enjoy these sorts of things, but if you do? This was such fun for me.

Untitled Porny Snippet by trill_gutterbug, thor/loki, NSFW, genderplay, intersex!loki (sort of), mentions of pregnancy kink, 2.7k
    Thor wakes to a subtle motion at his side, a steady rhythm of movement that brings him slowly out of heavy sleep.
    Jesus Christ this was ridiculously hot and perfect. Loki is fluid and seductive and demanding, while Thor is harder to describe but so Thor in how he approaches being woken in the middle of the night and reaching for Loki, who now has a cunt. The way Thor takes Loki apart with his tongue, the way he leaves Loki a mess and then fucks into him, the way Thor feels alive to me as a reader and how he enjoys having at Loki like this, how he makes room for himself and takes what he likes and is so good and fun at what he does--! Perfect. My favorite. That is what I seek out in fic and what this one gave me so ver well. Right along with every mention Loki has of being pregnant with Thor's get and the fantastic word choice for dialogue and the scorchingly hot sex. Like, wow. That is some excellent, excellent cunnilingus there and some excellent fucking, thank you for this gift, fandom.

Beck and Call by Runie (Runic), thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, jotunn!loki, a/b/o verse, throne sex, 1.3k
    Loki does not like being told to wait, especially not from Thor, and not while he is in heat, so he marches right into the throne room and takes what he wants in front of everyone.
    I never used to have a public sex kink, but this fandom has given me that, too, especially with how brazen and wicked and delightful this Loki is. And so many of my favorite tropes are touched on here and a ridiculously hot throne sex scene made me very happy, because I love the dynamic between Thor and Loki here, how joyfully wicked Loki is in that way that's sort of... a happy wicked? I love that when an author can pull it off! And, oh, Loki marching right up to Thor, who pulls Loki right onto his lap, I just. I needed a minute, okay. I have needs and this gave them to me. *__*

'til nothing else remains (except the fires from which I came) by UndergroundValentine, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, in heat!loki, 7.6k
    Growing up had been a rather strange and indefinitely frustrating experience for Loki. Where most male frost giants became burly with age and training, shoulders broad and muscles defined, Loki was toned and lithe, and the cunt he'd spent years ignoring as equally as his cock began to moisten with heat.
    This fic does have a few too many epithets and it's of the soft and fluffy variety that's not for everyone, but that's what I need sometimes, especially when this fic is so good-hearted, charming, and sweet. It's every Jotunn!Loki trope that I love, the kind that makes me realize that I want more after reading this fic, and yet am entirely satisfied after reading it! It's every Jotunn!Loki with intersex parts fic that I wanted, where he's in heat and acheing and then there's Thor who enjoys Loki's tits and teases his cunt and cock, makes him come and then fucks into him to get Loki to come again and just. Long sex scenes that take their time with Loki's entire vulva are my favorite, especially for how much Thor likes him and enjoys him! How Thor is rough and sweet with him! How this is just pure sexy fluff that was so satisfying. Plus moetions of Loki touching himself to keep in Thor's seed and the writhing he does while he's in heat and riding Thor's cock are all really good for me. This was just pure joy and happiness to read!

Heat by Wordbytes, thor/loki, NSFW, mating cycles/knotting, in heat!loki, intersex!loki, 4.3k
    It started a fine day when some well armed and prepared group picked the worse timing ever to attack the tower because a certain two Norse gods are busy and can't come help right now and no one can quite figure out why.
    The first half of this fic was rough around the edges, even allowing for Loki being mid-heat, so he was practically whining for Thor to fuck him already. But I have a weakness for this trope (like, a really big weakness) and the sex was hot, so, okay, I kept going. And about halfway through, once Loki comes back to himself, this fic got really charming really fast! This is a knotting fic, so they're stuck together afterwards, unable to move, and that's when the tower is attacked, of course, but they can't go out like this--well, Thor would, fighting and fucking, his favorite things! why NOT combine them? but Loki would kill him in the face for that, so they stay in their room. That goes about as well as you'd expect. And Loki's bitchy, catty attitude about the whole thing, even as he'd still be happy to go another round, is seriously pretty great. And then it's even better when Tony bursts in on them (to yell at them for not coming to help) and Loki decides to be the greatest little shit ever by fucking with him. That earned my eternal love pretty much forever, right there.

It's in the silence by anonymous, thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, pregnant!loki, ~1k
    Loki doesn't complain when Thor kisses his lips, hard and bruising, hands holding his face put. And at least, Thor thinks, it shuts him up.
    I read this fic because, oh, hey, pregnant Loki and porn, two of my favorite things! But then the fic just kind of... it's not about ripping my heart out, but it is about the complicated, often bittersweet relationship between them, how much Thor desperately loves Loki, how much Loki... loves in his own way, but is still so angry and nearly cruel. It's not a happy fic, but it's not an entirely tragic one, either, it's somewhere in the middle and so gorgeously done, every little detail that's packed into this short piece is beautiful. And, even on top of all that, the sex is super, super hot, too!

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.

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

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

    The scent surrounded Loki like a cloud, so sweet and tempting to Thor that he couldn’t help but inhale deeply whenever he caught the tiniest whiff.
    Apparently, I had this tab open for three weeks and only just now have fished it out again, good job, self. At the same time, though, that means I had a lovely piece to read this morning and it was utterly delightful and fun! One of the best things fandom has done with intersex!Loki (aside from that intersex!Loki is a thing) is just how enthusiastic Thor is about tasting Loki's cunt, how much he enjoys putting his mouth on it and licking and suckling Loki until he's a writhing mess from it, how that is super fucking good, like, I need all the attention on the vulva fandom is going to give me, thankkkkk. This is a short piece, but that's what it gets you when you read it, that sense of utter joy and enthusiasm and fun, when Thor just cannot resist Loki anymore and he's so spot on when he just... cheerfully, joyfully picks his spouse up and moves Loki to ride his face. Excellent.

Had We But World Enough by Smuttysmutwriter, thor/loki + some steve/tony + clint/natasha, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, pregnant!loki, arranged marriage, 52k
    Written for the following Norsekink prompt: Loki and Thor have been married since they were little and they grew up sharing a palace wing. The boys never shared a bed because Odin and Frigga wanted to make sure nothing inappropriate could happen while they were still young. They also used to get chaperoned a lot so that there could be no hanky panky. Everyone assumes that Loki and Thor’s marriage has progressed to include sex now that they’re adults and if the maids notice that there are still two beds being used in the princes’ wing, they know better than to gossip about it. Loki and Thor both desperately want to move their relationship to the next level. It’s just really awkward to change up a centuries old platonic relationship with your spouse. Neither of them ever had a change to figure out this romance stuff naturally and neither of them wants to pressure the other.

It all comes to a head when the boys take a trip to another realm and are given a single room when their hosts hears that they’re married.

    Oh, I just sank into this fic and wanted to wrap it up around me and have it never end. It's one of those stories where it's probably around 45k words and yet it hardly felt like such! It felt like it just whizzed right by me because it was so much fun to read! And that's actually something I really appreciated about this fic, where the plot is centered around the relationship antics between Thor and Loki, the attempts to progress their marriage, to work through their issues, to have them interacting with the rest of the Avengers, because plots like that often drag when an author doesn't know how to structure or pace a fic, so it ends up feeling like endless filler. The fic is loaded with a lot of cliches, several things that you have to just roll with (like Thor and Loki haven't had sex even though they've been married for a hundred years, etc.), but that's not actually a criticism from me, because they're the point of the fic and the author does a fantastically charming job of showing why they're such fun to have in fic. The fic is entirely light-hearted even in its angstier moments, there's no worry of things not working out, instead you get to focus on the actual fun of the piece. You don't know how much I love that, when an author can pull that off in a way that makes me feel energized after having read the fic, like I want to tackle a mountain of fic, because I'm so deliriously in love with these characters all over again.

I love that feeling of being in love with things, which is my favorite aspect of the story, that it's all about the positive. Even when people want to bang their heads against the wall, it's in that way that made my heart warm--especially when Loki interacts with Natasha, who is the only one who can really explain anything to him (about sex and physical intimacy) and the friendship that grows out of that. This is a softer Loki in some ways, who has never measured himself against Thor, but he still has such a sharp tongue and precarious mood, who is sharp-minded and you do not want to cross him. Just as this Thor is friendly and well-intentioned and lets stuff roll on by because he knows a lot of stuff is flying over his head, but he also is someone you do not want to cross, he's someone who is a character of action and honesty. One of the best things about the fic is that Thor's hesitancy with Loki comes a little bit from inexperience (as he's not fooled around with anyone because of his bethrothal) but instead because he's concerned for Loki's comfort and circumstances, when so much has already been taken from him, Thor doesn't want to take more. And just. Oh. The situation these characters are in becomes all the more delicious and a better read for how Thor is good-hearted and deliberately holds himself back, which works about a hundred times better than trying to force him into the mold of simply being just too nerveless to do anything. I could smooch the author just for that alone!

But it's more than that still yet. It's in the way the author took what's kind of a cracky premise and turned it more into... a light-hearted rom-com, the kind of fic that was genuinely sweet and fluffy without being saccharine. It was the lovely pacing of it, where I never felt like the story was dragging its feet just to make it longer, but instead that these things genuinely took time, that every chapter had some progress being made and had a point to it. That there were ups and downs the entire way, but felt like a natural part of relationships, not just drama bombs thrown in for no reason. And, oh, there were a handful of sex scenes and they were so, so delicious, especially as they learned each other's bodies more and more. The first time being this exhilarating thing for them, that Loki's wary of the reaction to his intersexed parts, but Thor finds all of it great, that their first time is so enthusiastic and hot and oh, finally as Thor gets to fuck him because he wants Loki so badly, but also they eventually move on and the first time Thor goes down on Loki's female parts is so damned good for me (and really hot as well, especially for how Thor has been wanting to do that forever and it's a whole new experience for Loki and ahhhhhh) and then Loki eventually deciding that he likes riding the hell out of Thor because it angles Thor's cock better against both of his parts and just, oh, yes, that's perfect. I love love love that both sets of parts are paid attention to with Loki, that the author hit so many of my kinks with intersex!Loki.

This fic may not be for everyone, especially if you're not a fan of the lighter-hearted stuff or of Loki's character being a big 'fuck you' to gender binary lines (which is one of my absolute favorite things about what the fandom does with the character and it's so lovely here, that has moments of major discomfort, but overall is actually really comfortable with himself and I'm not even kidding about how I want more and more of that forever), but it's one of the most satisfying reads I've had lately, for how much I love the marriage between these characters and the work they do on their relationship and the progress they made and how it's not always smooth, but there's real love there, real love in another life with different circumstances that gives me hope for the canon versions as well. As you can tell by the ridiculously long rec I just wrote, I just have a lot of feelings, okay. And this is the kind of fic that stirs them up--even if I can't properly say why, despite that I just wrote all those words about it. It just does.

Had We But World Enough… Interlude III by smuttysmuttysmut, background thor/loki + odin/frigga + laufey/farbauti + sigyn + other asgardians, arranged marriage, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, 3.4k
    This is a look at a younger Loki and Thor, they’re 11 and 13 respectively and Frigga has decided that Loki needs a gentle push towards his true role in Asgard.
    This is a side-fic to Had We But World Enough, but I think it stands well enough on its own, too, if you're aware of the arranged marriage between Loki and Thor, that Loki is intersexed and dealing with a monosexed society in Asgard.
    I have some truly ridiculous feelings for this fic. One of the best things Loki fandom has done is to embrace the character as trans*, in which one of the ways is as genderfluid/bi-gender, that he has aspects of both genders, that he's not restricted by the gender binary. This fic is set in an AU where Loki has spent much of his life in Asgard, but he also has his own family, his own identity, and isn't being measured against Thor, so it's a scenario where he's not being jammed into a role that doesn't fit him. And, oh, that's so good because a) I really resent the whole idea of being forced into only one side, you can only be "masculine" or "feminine" and b) that's so much of what was terrible for Loki in the canon in the first place. So, seeing a fic where Loki is growing up and figuring himself out, where he doesn't want to just be one thing or another, that touched my heart a lot.

It's a fic where he wants to wear clothes that maybe are closer to what most girls wear, but he also wants to play in the mud and go look at frogs the size of your fist. He struggles with wanting to be both and the point of the fic is that it is indeed okay to be both, you don't have to stick to one or the other. With Loki's character, when so much of him was wrapped up in trying to be what he wasn't (ie, trying to be Thor, when he's not Thor), it's wonderful to have a touching fic where he can accept himself more readily, where there's a sense of, yes, this is okay, there's nothing wrong with him. The writing is lovely and sweet, it's actually a wonderful story just to read, rather than having an agenda about it (it's just that I, as a reader, have a lot of thoughts and this fic brought it up, so don't let me give you the impression that it's a lecture disguised as a fic, because it's not), it has wonderful details and, oh, the friendship that starts between Loki and Sigyn is absolutely darling.

It's not going to be for everyone (and that really is fine, it's not going to be to everyone's tastes and the beauty of a character like Loki is that there's room for many different interpretations), but I walked away from this fic feeling like everything was precious and darling, like I was just so happy for all of them. Especially since Frigga is so supportive and caring (Frigga and Loki is always and forever a favorite of mine, obv.), that no one tears down Loki for this. Just. Ahhhh, happiness and love and support always gets me in fic.

Had We But World Enough… Interlude IV by smuttysmuttysmut, background thor/loki + odin/frigga + laufey/farbauti + sigyn + other asgardians, arranged marriage, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, 3.6k
    A direct sequel to Interlude III (this won’t make much sense if you haven’t read that first). Loki has decided to change his look, how will Thor and their other friends react? Thor gets some advice, Loki shares a secret or two with Sigyn and Fandral behaves badly.
    This is a side story to Had We But World Enough and a sequel to Interlude III, which would help to read first. I think you potentially could read it on its own, so long as you're aware of the basic set-up, but it's definitely better in context of the greater whole.
    Ahhhh, I love these interludes! They're darling for focusing on Loki as a child who is working through the whole genderfluid thing in a society that is mono-gendered, but doing so in a way that's not soul-crushing. There's angst, especially when Thor's jealous of Loki's attentions turning towards more stereotypically feminine things, but there's no shame being put on Loki for figuring himself out here. Instead, there's natural curiosity, both from Thor&Fandral as well as Sigyn about her best friend, which is also never presented as too intrusive or repulsive, but instead almost kind of adorable. The author also does a lovely job of showing that they're young here, they're not ready for sex or sexual relationships, but they're at the age where they know a few things and want to know more.

Also! I love that part of the reason there's not really any crushing shame on Loki is because it's natural on Jotunheim and there's even stories about why that is, which is a little detail, but helps expand the world without stopping to info dump on the reader. Also also, Sigyn is pretty great here and I love her interaction with Fandral at the end (perfect omg) and you have no idea my love for well-written OC characters, especially when they're interesting twists on minor characters like this. ♥

Midgard is for Lovers by Smuttysmutwriter, thor/loki + avengers, NSFW, arranged marriage, intersex!loki, jotunn!loki, fluff, 11k
    Thor and Loki have run off to Midgard for the Honeyed Moon. What happens on Midgard? Does Loki get along with Thor's Earth-pals? How are things going on Jotunheim?
    This is the third fic in the A Well Made Match series, which would help to read in order.
    I saw this fic was posted this morning during my usual trawling for fic and may have made some sort of ridiculous gestures in my flailing. May have. But I definitely snatched it up immediately and shoved it on my reader and read it right away because, ahhhh, I love this series so much! It's Thor and Loki on Midgard just after they've been married, so they're experiencing culture shock as well as still getting to know each other, mixed in with the occasional flashback to pre-wedding antics and occasional scenes with Loki's family back home. It's the kind of writing that's just happy-making because everything is fun and hilarious and they're falling in love and really like each other and really, really enjoy fucking.

I loved every moment of this story because of all the fun details worked in, of all the Avengers' reactions to the newlywed couple, the hilarious moments of how difficult the preparations for the wedding were (Odin's conversation with Thor about what to do in the marital bed was especially hilarious, but also Thor getting a Howler was amazing and worked perfectly), and oh! There was even an enemy for the Avengers to fight! With a hilarious enemy and Loki having a chance to be totally bad ass, which leads to more jumping each other with his husband, and more chances for the Avengers to desperately wish they'd get a room!

I cannot even coherently express how much joy this brings to me, how this series has been built into this whole little world with a mix of different cultures and progression of this arranged marriage. It's such fun to see these characters in a different setting, circumstances that are more positive for both of them, so you can see a better relationship being built here, and the potential for so much more in their future, too. I would have been satisfied with just the first fic or even just the first sequel, but to have another one here, to have 11k of this fic just suddenly dropped in my lap and the potential for more, with possible kids in the future? :D :D :D!! Once again, I'm in love with this fandom.

of shame and trust by agitation, thor/loki, jotunn!loki, arranged marriage, intersex!loki, in heat!loki possible eventual pregnant!loki, 1k
    Asgard and Jotunheim decide an arranged marriage would help preserve the peace and benefit both kingdoms. Loki is a runt, and has had children before being married to Thor, and Laufey discreetly (but publicly) makes that known.
    This is short so far, but that is like a list of things that is guaranteed to make me click on your fic right there, holy shit. And while there's only the one chapter so far, it offers interesting tidbits of world building, glimpses of the potential for what Loki might really be like under his mask, and even a brief sex scene that was very nicely done. And I found that I actually really liked that, because they don't really know each other yet, the only reason there's any kind of affection here is that Thor's attracted to him and pities him, while Loki has to trust him, but that something real could very well develop here. I am definitely, definitely looking forward to there being more of this one!

XVII by stereobone, thor/loki, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, NSFW, arranged marriage, 13k
    "You will be a fine husband," Frigga says. "Your father and I are very proud."
    I've recommended this fic before, but I do update recs often, there was a significant amount added to this fic, and you do not understand my hunger for and love for arranged marriage AUs. And this one is so wonderful, as it shows the progress of Thor and Loki's relationship over the beginning weeks/months of their marriage, how they go from strangers who are wary of but attracted to each other to people who find that they get along better than expected and are already fond of each other, slowly progressing towards love. It's not quite there yet and I love that about this story, that it shows how far they've come in the careful way Thor treats Loki, the way Loki allows more and more touches and shows more trust, the way Thor defends Loki from malicious gossip (there's also a great scene with Odin about that, too! which just made the fic even better omg) and that just... Loki doesn't know what to do with that. This isn't what he expected at all.

The fic never forgets that Loki is viciously angry, but that never seems to stop Thor or his progression into Loki's affections, it never forgets that Thor is good-hearted in the way he sees Loki, trusts him even when maybe he shouldn't, but is eventually rewarded for that trust. Not just in sex, but in Loki opening up to him emotionally, and all of this sounds so... trope-heavy and cliche and maybe it is, but it's the kind of fics that keep the tropes sharp and shows why they have such enduring popularity. There's even world building and a trip to Alfheim and resolution to the sexual tension between them and, jfc, when Thor is exploring Loki's vulva for the first time with his fingers, when Loki is goading Thor into ducking him even harder, it is so intensely good for me even beyond all the other things I love about this fic. And, bleh, coherency is for weenies, I'll do a better rec for this fic later, hopefully I can wait until it's finished, at least.

XVII (chapter 5) by stereobone, thor/loki, nsfw, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, arranged marriage, update rec, 3.2k / 16.4k total
    In public, Loki is the exact opposite of affectionate. He walks next to Thor, gives him the occasional glance, but his body language lets Thor know that to touch would be a poor move. In private, Loki becomes a different being entirely.
    I tried really, really hard not to immediately pounce on/rec this chapter, I was trying to wait until the final chapter had been posted and then do a rec then. But then there was Thor going down on intersex!Loki and that is not a thing that I can easily resist! So, there's that satisfaction (because it was really hot, but also really sweet, which is a great combination and fits with the tone of this chapter especially well), but there's also a lot of sweeter moments in this chapter, just the two of them spending time together and getting to know each other. One of the best things about arranged marriage fics is the slow crossing of that distance between them, the learning to communicate with each other in a way that they're forced to more openly recognize, and the sharing of things with each other. And, as much as the cliffhanger in this chapter is frustrating (in the way it's supposed to be), I also love it because it shows just how far their relationship has come, when they're faced with a difficult choice and all the complications that come with it.

    "You will be a fine husband," Frigga says. "Your father and I are very proud."
    I would say that you don't understand my love of arranged marriages, but I think this fandom probably does. But, oh, man, I really do love them and seeing a fic that's an arranged marriage AU will automatically make me click on your fic to read it, which so often nets me excellent stories like this one. I've done recs for the fic as a WIP, but now that it's finished, I wanted to do one final one, because I've been thinking/talking about what makes certain authors appealing lately and my feeling is that some of them just have this solid charisma to their stories, the indefinable quality that draws me in and I can always count on getting something that's worth my time. I think this author has that, so even if I can't point specifically to anything new being done here, that doesn't mean I didn't fall right into the delight of seeing each new chapter coming out, it didn't mean that I wasn't just about rolling around on my bed in happiness while reading.

One thing I can specifically point to, however, is that the fic does a fantastic job of balancing that everything in this universe is good, that it's happy here, that things will work out even when difficult decisions have to be made or people feel torn about what to do without sacrificing the emotional weight of it. It's not pure fluff, but yet I can trust it. And I love that Laufey is good in this universe, that he's protective of his child, which further helps that this is a happy and good universe, which I really need sometimes. Add in that the writing is just so smooth and easy to slide into and I have a fic that was a great joy to read.

Of Gods and Monsters by umakoo, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, 10k
    Moonlight shone in through the high windows and the cracks in the walls, creating a pale halo around Thor’s wooden frame. Loki laid his hand on the skillfully carved Mjöllnir that stood between the idol’s feet, tracing the patterns and runes with his fingers. He could not ignore the fact that the Thunderer held the place of honor in the mortals’ place of worship.
    This is the third part in a series that should be read in order.
    I really am just completely in love with this series, it's so good, it's a gorgeous mix of a more Norse mythology-based story with Viking culture, without losing that these are still well connected to the MCU versions. This fic in particular delighted me for it, because you can feel Loki's envy and darker moments are still there, even though they've been tempered by different circumstances growing up, there's still the issue of dealing with how he (doesn't) fit in with the rest of Asgard, there's his envy of Thor, his posseessiveness of Thor, the envy that roils up in him, these things will always be part of Loki. And, yet, this is a brighter, happier universe where they don't have the same looming tragedy hanging over them, even if not everything is perfect and sunshiney. It's just a really good mix of the two.

Yet, as much as I love this Loki (and, boy, do I!) I think I love the story even more for Thor, who feels right here, who has a good-natured personality, who enjoys being with other people, who enjoys helping, who feels responsibility towards others that he should protect, but there's also a temper to him, and a weight to the character. You can feel how much thought the author put into the characters, as much as was put into the world around them, which makes it all the better! There's thought for each of the characters, how they would be in this world, and how they would interact with each other, so when Thor knows how to find Loki (or the implications that they still have epic fights, just that they always return to each other again) or they spend time away from Asgard by themselves, content to hunt and fuck and travel together, it's just so good.

And then there's the sex. These are gods who fuck, who clearly enjoy each others' bodies, how it's almost filthy what they do to each other, except it's also sweet and so clearly fun for everyone involved! Which makes everything extra hot, unf. There's so much care in the fucking, so much adoration between them, even as they're still very clearly Thor and Loki, that it just warms me and reminds me that happier fics need not lose any of their sharpness! And then there's an excellent final couple of scenes, where Loki makes some important decisions, and the author crafts those scenes beautifully as well for how they're built up and meaningful to these characters. Just a really great read all the way around.

One Night with the King by coma_grey, thor/loki + other asgardians, eventually nsfw, jotunn!loki, harem au, sort of implied future dub-con, intersex!loki, implied future pregnant!loki, 32k wip
    After a foolish night of drunkenness, the young King Thor is on a search for a new queen, this time a commoner that the people of Asgard can rise behind and love as one of their own. All Aesir youth who are of age and pass the initial tests of beauty, virginity, and fertility are to be housed in the king’s harem where they will be groomed and trained for potential queenship. After one year’s time, the king will then spend a single night with each of the chosen youth in order to choose his queen. The strangest youth in competition for the crown? A lying, thieving, mysterious trickster known only by the name of Loki. Little does the House of Odin know that Loki is neither Aesir nor a commoner.
    I do have two very light caveats before I begin my proper rec for this fic. One, Thor does seem like kind of a jerk so far in this story, but he's deliberately meant to come off that way and it does smooth out, the further you get into the fic. I do advise rolling with a really arrogant!Thor in the beginning (which I ultimately found not offensive and I think everyone knows how tetchy I get about good Thor characterization XD). Two, this is definitely a WIP fic, where Thor and Loki have hardly interacted much yet! They've had a couple of significant meetings in the 12 chapters that were posted as of the time of this rec, but if you hate WIP fics, this is not the one for you. ALL THAT SAID. Holy shit, I still can't believe this fic is 32k, because it doesn't feel like it at all, not with how easily and smoothly it reads, not with how much utter fucking fun and charm this fic has all over the place!

The world building is just so charming here, the author weaves so much of it into the story, about the background for Loki before he's taken to the palace and then life in Asgard proper, as he's taken into the harem, and his daily life there, all of that is a good part of the story in the early chapters. The set-up for this world is just as fun to read about as the characters and their relationships! This Loki is a little softer around the edges, because he was raised by a loving "uncle", because his family dearly loved him and wants him back when it's safe for him to return, but he's still this smirky little shit who's pretty goddamned full of himself because he's too clever for his own good. And he develops something like friendships while he's in the harem, with Amora and Lorelei and Sigyn, all vaguely catty and snarky with each other, but you can tell they're actually somewhat enjoying each others' company, too! Oh, man, the scene where they first get a look at Loki's parts could have been embarrassing, but instead the author has the deftness and charm to have made it just ridiculously fun like everything else! I genuinely enjoy Loki's friendships and his interactions with Angrboda, his "uncle" who raised him, and even when Loki runs into Balder or Skadi, the two responsible for grooming and guiding the harem members. It's really one of the best AU!Balders I've ever read.

The whole thing is beautifully paced as well, because nothing ever drags or feels like I wish it would just hurry along already or skips over something I wish had been focused on more. The fic definitely takes its time and I can see it becoming quite long, at the pace it's going, but the author has found a great, natural feeling pace to it and so I'm fine with however long it takes to get there. I am in love with the world-building and sheer, utter charm of this fic.

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. ♥

    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.

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.

like a virgin by cavaleira [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, 3.1k
    featuring nervous, intersex!Loki getting cunnilingus from Thor for the first time
    Oh, man, I am all over this intersex!Loki trend as of late, especially with Thor eating Loki out, and I want every last fic about it, especially when it's written like this, where it's warm and happy and enthusiastic and makes my heart ridiculously glad. There's just enough background world-building with Loki knowing he's different and how he's hidden his dual parts, which leads up to why he's so nervous about the first time he'll show Thor, but it's perfect because Thor is just so delighted by him, just so eager to taste him and love him and get right in there. I love it I love it I love it. Like, that is a shot straight to my heart, when Thor is just hungry for Loki and thinks him gorgeous like this. Add into that the really delicious sex, with Thor slowly bringing Loki out of his defensive mood, until Loki was writhing against his mouth, because Thor was slowly working his clit until Loki was an utter mess and greedy for more of Thor. Just. Yes, leave me here to wallow in feels and porn, the best combination there is.

One Night with the King by coma_grey, thor/loki + other asgardians, eventually nsfw, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, harem!loki, 36k wip
    After a foolish night of drunkenness, the young King Thor is on a search for a new queen, this time a commoner that the people of Asgard can rise behind and love as one of their own. All Aesir youth who are of age and pass the initial tests of beauty, virginity, and fertility are to be housed in the king’s harem where they will be groomed and trained for potential queenship. After one year’s time, the king will then spend a single night with each of the chosen youth in order to choose his queen. The strangest youth in competition for the crown? A lying, thieving, mysterious trickster known only by the name of Loki. Little does the House of Odin know that Loki is neither Aesir nor a commoner.
    I believe chapter 13 is where I last left off with the previous rec for this fic, which means I probably should wait for a couple more chapters to be posted before doing an update rec, but, whatever, I can't wait, I like this fic too much to do that. And it's a short update/update rec, but, ahhhh, I do so love this fic and how smoothly it reads and how... easy it is to see a good future here, where Loki could mature into just what Asgard needs, in a way that would balance this Thor. And it's still a happier AU (I love the use of both Balder and Skadi in this fic, they are just delightful in the way the fic uses them!) so, even as I feel for Loki, even as he's a manipulative little shit and has been dealt some harsh blows (figuratively and literally), it's still good here. And, oh, the author is absolutely delightful at the, "I hate him!" / "He's just fun to tease, that's all." kind of banter that clearly indicates chemistry between the characters and keeps me coming back for more. Definitely one of my favorite WIPs right now and it makes me want all of it RIGHT NOW but also I don't want it to end any time soon, either!

Apparatus by berlynn_wohl, thor/loki, NSFW, intersex!loki, 2.6k
    "Is this another one of your tricks?"
    Perfect. It's like a story being told! And there is delightful characterization, some really lovely lines of dialogue, and Loki being catty yet adorable, with Thor being... just Thor. There's that undercurrent of Thor being fine with whatever Loki is, it's all part of the greater whole of Loki, which is perfect for the character, especially when Thor's eager to explore him and get at him already. This is along with the really delicious sex, the exploration of Loki's body and the delightful use of not just his cunt, but also his ass, because that was next on Thor's list and, oh, man, yes. Thor being happy to just totally wreck Loki is, like, the best thing for me. This was a wonderful fic to read 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.

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.

Thrice Blessed by umakoo, thor/loki + frigga + odin, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, pregnant!loki, mild childbirth scene, mild lactation kink, fluff, norse mythology elements, 14k
    Part four in my Jotun AU series in which Thor and Loki have their first child.
    This is the fourth in a series, which helps to read in order, but if you absolutely wanted to, you could read this one on its own, I think.
    There is so much I want to say about this fic, but I fear it's going to be one of those recs that only captures a fraction of what I adored about it, because every scene has so much going on with it, every scene has a point to it and further explores an aspect of this univverse that's interesting and full of feelings, and it leaves the fic with such a rich, lush feeling to it, even beyond the Norse mythology elements that have been married to the spirits of the MCU characters. I remark each time I do a rec for a fic in this series, on how well blended the Norse mythology elements are with the characters from the MCU, how it's clearly both mixed together, in a really organic and incredible way. I would recommend this fic just for that! But it's also in the way the author has clearly spent a lot of time expanding this world and having a strong view of it, which isn't info dumped onto the reader, but instead worked in with little touches, so that everything feels very fully realized! And I love writing like that!

That it comes with dometic fluff that still carries emotional weight and includes Jotunn!Loki and pregnant!Loki and that kind of cheerful, enthusiastic porn that I like is just even more of a bonus. I love how much culture there is in the writing here, both for their time in Asgard and for the bits of his own history that Loki brings with him, when it's something as simple as the paint he marks himself with or the food that's served or the rooms they inhabit. I love that another way to keep the spirit of the characters is that Loki has an absolutely beautiful relationship with Frigga here, which isn't the same as it is in the MCU, it can't be, but I still felt like this is how they would be if they had these contexts to them! And this Odin is absolutely SPOT ON, with the balancing of being as old as he is with as wise as he is with as much of a king as he is and with as much of a father as he is. I found myself really struck by his character especially on the second time through, when I had a stronger sense of what he was thinking, and that's exactly how Odin should be! Everything was perfect with him, everything was perfect with Frigga and how gentle and motherly she is, without sacrificing that steel core she has.

With those scenes, it added to the domestic fluff feeling of the story, which I absolutely loved, but it was more than that. This Thor and Loki obviously deeply love each other and they have a rock solid relationship, but it's not perfect. This Loki is still prickly and this Thor still sticks his foot in his mouth sometimes, but this Loki is also able to be more open about his vulnerability and this Thor is able to be calmer about supporting Loki through the pregnancy, so it's fluffy, but not too sickly sweet, not in any scene. And, oh, this is everything I love about pregnant!Loki, it hits all the tropes while still keeping them sharp and fresh, so you understand why they became tropes in the first place. And I love that there's focus on the actual birth and the kid after the birth and that sweetness of when you have a baby to hold in your arms, that little miracle of life, for both Thor and Loki as new parents.

Not everything is perfect, Loki is still a Jotunn in Asgard, which comes up a few times in the fic, but it too feels natural and organic to the storyline, one that is almost sort of necessary. Plus, it gives Thor a chance to fuck Loki in a place where they can sort of be overheard because let them hear and OH MAN GIVE ME THAT ALWAYS. Because I love how much these two really enjoy fucking, how Thor enjoys seeing Loki writhe in pleasure and how absolutely greedy for that Loki is, it's charming and heart-warming and all the hotter for it. Combine that with the deliciousness of anxiety over expecting a baby and how that brings up a lot of Loki's issues and it's a bumpy road at times, but there's genuine kindness and just. Ahhhh, it's so good, especially if you're looking for something to make you feel all warm and happy while reading it.

Public Punishment by Batsutousai, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, arranged married, mild humiliation, intersex!loki, 2.4k
    Tired of being mocked for his choice of clothing, Loki devises a prank to punish Thor. He may yet regret it.
    There are a few epithets that I would take out of this fic (and I hold with the 616!Thor characterization where he doesn't give a fuck who sees his junk, but this fic needed Thor to care about it, so I totally approve of the choice here!), which I mention just as mild caveats, because the rest of it? Holy fuck, YES. I was initially wary of the humiliation aspect, since I don't do well with secondhand embarrassment, but the author hits the perfect notes for keeping it mild and for Loki having a bit of an exhibitionist streak that he hadn't realized, finding that sweet spot in between the two, that this was still a punishment, but it was an enjoyable one for both of them.

This is a prickly Jotunn!Loki who likes having his own clothing and jewelry instead of the Asgardian style that Thor would have him dress in, who doesn't want to be an As, so there's delicious conflict and bits of worldbuilding here with that. But Thor's temper and determination, the way he is not having any more of Loki's shit, so he fucks Loki in public (it's less weird than it sounds when I say it), so every one can see and that turns Loki on but also teaches him a bit and Thor putting Loki on his cock in that firm handed way of his, all of it is SO GOOD and SO PERFECT. The author strikes this really great blend of Loki being so sharp and cutting, but Thor is more than a match for him, the sheer presence and steamroller nature of him, yet! They still manage to find middle ground together in the greatest moment where Thor's not the nicest person, which had me practically cackling with glee. This was such a great find to read! And really, really hot, jfc.

    The scent surrounded Loki like a cloud, so sweet and tempting to Thor that he couldn’t help but inhale deeply whenever he caught the tiniest whiff.
    Apparently, I had this tab open for three weeks and only just now have fished it out again, good job, self. At the same time, though, that means I had a lovely piece to read this morning and it was utterly delightful and fun! One of the best things fandom has done with intersex!Loki (aside from that intersex!Loki is a thing) is just how enthusiastic Thor is about tasting Loki's cunt, how much he enjoys putting his mouth on it and licking and suckling Loki until he's a writhing mess from it, how that is super fucking good, like, I need all the attention on the vulva fandom is going to give me, thankkkkk. This is a short piece, but that's what it gets you when you read it, that sense of utter joy and enthusiasm and fun, when Thor just cannot resist Loki anymore and he's so spot on when he just... cheerfully, joyfully picks his spouse up and moves Loki to ride his face. Excellent.

'til nothing else remains (except the fires from which I came) by UndergroundValentine, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, in heat!loki, 7.6k
    Growing up had been a rather strange and indefinitely frustrating experience for Loki. Where most male frost giants became burly with age and training, shoulders broad and muscles defined, Loki was toned and lithe, and the cunt he'd spent years ignoring as equally as his cock began to moisten with heat.
    This fic does have a few too many epithets and it's of the soft and fluffy variety that's not for everyone, but that's what I need sometimes, especially when this fic is so good-hearted, charming, and sweet. It's every Jotunn!Loki trope that I love, the kind that makes me realize that I want more after reading this fic, and yet am entirely satisfied after reading it! It's every Jotunn!Loki with intersex parts fic that I wanted, where he's in heat and acheing and then there's Thor who enjoys Loki's tits and teases his cunt and cock, makes him come and then fucks into him to get Loki to come again and just. Long sex scenes that take their time with Loki's entire vulva are my favorite, especially for how much Thor likes him and enjoys him! How Thor is rough and sweet with him! How this is just pure sexy fluff that was so satisfying. Plus moetions of Loki touching himself to keep in Thor's seed and the writhing he does while he's in heat and riding Thor's cock are all really good for me. This was just pure joy and happiness to read!

The Witch-King and His Husband by Metallic_Sweet, thor/loki, NSFW, jotunn!loki, intersex!loki, jotunn!thor, 4.8k
    When Jotunheim triumphed over Asgard, it was agreed that Asgard's golden son would wed the first witch born into the royal family of Jotunheim in well over ten thousand years. In which Thor grows up on Jotunheim, largely alone, waiting for Loki to grow old enough to rule.
    This fic is a little tell-rather-than-show, but it's a fun piece to read and does solidly well at being a fic about Thor raised on Jotunheim. The best part of the fic is Loki being slowly cracked open by Thor, genuinely loving him, and how surprisingly sweet and good their relationship is in a world that could have made it really nasty. So, while reading this, while it's bettersweet or difficult in some places, it left me with a warm, positive feeling about the Thor/Loki relationship that I enjoyed a lot. And, oh, man, do I love when Thor is tasting Loki's cunt to make him writhing and when Loki rides Thor's cock, these are some of my favorite things pretty much ever! The fairy tale elements are nicely done, which helps the overall structure of the fic as well as just simply is a delight to read.

    "This is another of your tricks, made worse by the fact you brought Mother into it. You expect me to fight for your freedom after what you have done? Nay, Loki, I shall not, nor will I believe you carry my child." "What did you think would happen when a fertility god could not stop himself from rutting into my reproductive parts!"
    Oh, this was so much fun and just what I wanted! Intersex!Loki goads thor into fucking him in the dungeons and, as a god of fertility, of course Loki gets pregnant. That is a set-up that I will read pretty much every time, because it nets me gems like this one! I love that everything around Thor grows and Loki is no exception. ♥ And it's a fluffier fic, but it doesn't forget Thor's anger or resolve it, it doesn't make Loki any more suddenly regretful, yet it won't break your heart, either! I enjoyed both Frigga and Odin's scenes in this as well, plus some really satisfying porn that focused on Loki's cunt, all of this made me happy as well. The whole thing just make me light and warm-hearted today, in a way that I'm terrible at expressing, but is completely genuine and without irony. I'm just happy after reading this!

    Loki does not like being told to wait, especially not from Thor, and not while he is in heat, so he marches right into the throne room and takes what he wants in front of everyone.
    I never used to have a public sex kink, but this fandom has given me that, too, especially with how brazen and wicked and delightful this Loki is. And so many of my favorite tropes are touched on here and a ridiculously hot throne sex scene made me very happy, because I love the dynamic between Thor and Loki here, how joyfully wicked Loki is in that way that's sort of... a happy wicked? I love that when an author can pull it off! And, oh, Loki marching right up to Thor, who pulls Loki right onto his lap, I just. I needed a minute, okay. I have needs and this gave them to me. *__*

    There is a certain Jotun Ambassador that is rather skilled at getting under Thor’s skin.
    This was perfect for me today, because it's Jotunn!Loki being a little shit who goads Thor into angry sex, then there's wall sex, then babies!! There's some adorable happy family fluff after that, where they have a whole brood of children and doting grandparents, which is super fluffy, but I'm not kidding that this is exactly what I wanted today and how much better I felt after reading this. My heart is lighter and I'm in a better mood and just. Things are good again! ♥

    Thor wakes to a subtle motion at his side, a steady rhythm of movement that brings him slowly out of heavy sleep.
    Jesus Christ this was ridiculously hot and perfect. Loki is fluid and seductive and demanding, while Thor is harder to describe but so Thor in how he approaches being woken in the middle of the night and reaching for Loki, who now has a cunt. The way Thor takes Loki apart with his tongue, the way he leaves Loki a mess and then fucks into him, the way Thor feels alive to me as a reader and how he enjoys having at Loki like this, how he makes room for himself and takes what he likes and is so good and fun at what he does--! Perfect. My favorite. That is what I seek out in fic and what this one gave me so ver well. Right along with every mention Loki has of being pregnant with Thor's get and the fantastic word choice for dialogue and the scorchingly hot sex. Like, wow. That is some excellent, excellent cunnilingus there and some excellent fucking, thank you for this gift, fandom.

Avengers/Thor: untitled by anonymous - So, the prompt for this one was, Thor/intersexed!Jotun!Loki, Loki is not exactly what the Avengers expected, in which Thor brings his husband/wife/whatever to meet the Avengers, who is not at all what they expected because they honestly couldn't imagine anything by Thor's descriptions, but then they actually meet Loki and a;sdkfjal;ksj shit that's hot. It's a short piece, enough to fit in one lj comment, but it hits so many of the things I want and ahhhh it's so much fun and so good and I would totally read more of that universe, especially with the Avengers interacting with Loki. This was just a charming and delightful fill! (Thor/Loki.) Avengers/Thor: Don't Call Me Dulcinea by xpnkitty - I was a little dubious of this fic when I first started reading, because Loki was so crushed and trying to hide himself away, even when, okay, yeah, in this scenario, S.H.I.E.L.D. had managed to strip of his magic and that forced him into reverting to his Jotunn form and even took his clothes so that he couldn't hide, crushing him under the weight of humiliation, but... by the time Thor had picked him up and dragged him off, I was warming up to the fic a lot (and felt that it was justified in the characterization, just not along my lines of usual thinking, which is an important distinction to my mind) and then there was intersex!Loki and how much he loathed himself in that sharp, cutting way that I knew so much better and Thor refusing to let Loki just go on hating himself, because he loved Loki so much, and then there was super hot sexy times. What made this work--aside from the excellent intersex!Loki porn, bless you, author--is that Loki eventually found his footing again and was full of so much anger, even when he loved Thor and it didn't really fix everything. Things are better here, but not perfect and that's the best way for fics like this to end. (Thor/Loki, intersex!Loki, NSFW.) Avengers/Thor: It's in the silence by anonymous - I read this fic because, oh, hey, pregnant Loki and porn, two of my favorite things! But then the fic just kind of... it's not about ripping my heart out, but it is about the complicated, often bittersweet relationship between them, how much Thor desperately loves Loki, how much Loki... loves in his own way, but is still so angry and nearly cruel. It's not a happy fic, but it's not an entirely tragic one, either, it's somewhere in the middle and so gorgeously done, every little detail that's packed into this short piece is beautiful. And, even on top of all that, the sex is super, super hot, too! (Thor/Loki, intersex!Loki, pregnant!Loki, NSFW.) → Midnight in Manhattan by Frailty Collapse (Fujoshi)
    After a rather risque conversation, Thor finds a visitor at his window.
    The pov switches frequently on this fic, so you can tell it was an rp between two authors, as well as the writing being a bit stiff and more epithets than I would have liked, but it's otherwise a solid story and it was a really satisfying sex, especially for how it wasn't a quick thing. Instead, the author took their time, built the tension up and made it last, so it felt like nearly half of the fic was about the sex and I love when fic does that. I also enjoy that, there was a solid balance between softer intimacy between the characters and not making things too fluffy--this is a fic where Loki still leaves, where he isn't as wild and deranged as he was in the height of either movie, but he's still changed, much as Thor has changed in his own ways. There's still an inability to work things out, but there's the sense that it's either... either for now or it's with the knowledge that they'll always find their way back to each other, Loki will always return, Loki will at least stay the night, when Thor asks him to stay always. I enjoyed that Thor respects that he can't hold Loki down if he doesn't want to be, that he'll still ask and try to convince, but knows Loki cannot be forced in this, so instead takes only what's fair, which is why this Loki responds better to him.

I really enjoy when an author(s) can weave together porn and characterization, because it makes the length of the sex scene not feel tedious, I didn't feel like it was being stalled just to pad the fic's word count, instead that this was a conversation that would happen while they were touching each other, while Thor was preparing Loki and while Loki was encouraging him on. But, yeah, the best part was definitely that this was a very thorough sex scene, where Loki is very thoroughly fucked the way he wants, and then yet further because Thor can never resist a challenge to just completely undo him like this. I am very glad to have stumbled over this one tonight! (Thor/Loki, NSFW, intersex!Loki.)

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

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

    Loki hadn’t planned for it to go this way, with his face pressed harshly into the pillows by a large hand fisted in his hair.
    Jesus christ, this fic ruined me for the day. It starts with light hair pulling, more to keep Loki's face down in the blankets and his as up in the air while Thor fucks him and it just gets hotter from there. This is all the kinks I love, Thor being pure power and rough and Loki loves it, loves that Thor has fucked both his cunt and his ass, the way he keeps fucking Loki through orgasm, the way he slides plugs into Loki to keep his come in until Loki grows fat with child. The fic does a gorgeous job of rough sex and entirely good feelings, love and care and fucked out Loki and filthy sex that's happy with just the right amount of edge and so, so, so hot omg. There's a bit of dirty talk, mixed with clear affection for Loki, how Thor is going to make sure he's pregnant by the end of this, because he loves Loki and is going to utterly wreck him and I-- I'm not kidding, I was ruined for the rest of the night after this.

    So far, Loki has been making Thor’s fantasies reality. Tonight, Thor is determined to give back.
    When I read this fic, it absolutely ruined me for the rest of that night, because it's rough sex with Loki wanting to be Thor's Jotunn whore and Thor indulges him, which makes it this really great mix of fucked up and not fucked up and rough and sweet, in a way that works for these characters. For all that it's dub-con, it's a bit on the sweet and fluffy side of Loki, but I like that you get that there are still a lot of things about him that are a complete mess. You can feel how much Thor loves him and even in the roleplay, that affection is entirely clear as he fucks the delightful Jotunn beneath him. Add in some very nice sex and this was really good for me.

    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.

    The marriage was arranged as a way to end the skirmishes arising between Asheim and Jotunheim’s borders. Neither Asgard nor Utgard wished for another war; memories of the last one were too fresh.
    I greatly enjoy many of the tropes of Jotunn!Loki in Asgard fic and I will always want more of them, but I'm also totally here for fic that's deft enough to go another way, as this one is. It's not about them falling in love here (though, that's not out of the question someday, but it doesn't need to be) and instead about the wariness between two people who don't know each other very well, who are not similar in many obvious ways. The fic does a gorgeous job of drawing them together, showing their chemistry and the attraction there, while not making it too easy. It works here, this is everything I could ask for from a fic like this, right down to the characterization, where Thor has all this heavy weight as a character, while Loki is this sharp dagger of a character. Where Thor is thoughtful and insightful but not manipulative. Where Loki is cunning and scheming and hard, but kind of a mess and vulnerable.

And, oh, the way Thor is so direct here and Loki can only push him so far (but certainly gets under Thor's skin at the same time), the way he's compassionate to Lokii's situation but also does what he thinks is the thing to do, the way he won't back down on pleasuring Loki, in making this good for him, even if it tears Loki open a little bit at the seams, yes, that is Thor and that is why Loki gravitates to him in every universe, because some part of him craves being dashed on the rocks of Thor and being accepted. Add in the really, really satisfying sex, how long it takes to ease Loki open and work into him, jesus, it was good. And was further used to show Thor's patience and determination, to show Loki's willingness to hurt himself in order to protect himself, but then opening up as a character, and, yeah, this was a goddamned joy to read.

Knowing What You Want by Runie (Runic), thor/loki, arranged marriage, intersex!loki, jotunn!loki, in heat!loki, partial kidfic, 1.2k
    What Loki wants, Loki will have.
    Oh, my god, this was delightful and everything I love. Adorable babies and Loki being a precious little shit as a kidlet and that is hilarious in how spoiled he is, then the Jotnar having tits during their heats, Thor and Loki being horny teenagers, gorwing up and getting interested in teach other, and, of course, making their parents' life difficult as hell. It's just pure fun and joy to read fic like this, I am so glad Runic is in this fandom, ahhhh. ♥

(In)Effective Punishments by Misaya, thor/loki + background clint/natsha + background avengers, NSFW, intersex!loki, piercings, some d/s play, some spanking, orgasm delay, 3.7k
    Thor has just about had it up to here with Loki's pranks and practical jokes, and decides to punish him for his misdeeds.
    This fic is part of a series that can be read in order or standalone!
    I'm serious about how happy this author makes me because it's just such happy fic that always cheers me up and then delivers tasty porn. The orgasm denial in this one, because Loki is such a little shit and this is Thor's "punishment" for him, was ridiculously hot, the way he was on edge the entire time and desperate to come, but Thor held him back, the control of it was really delicious. Just. All of that was so good for me, I am always here for lovingingly punishing that little shit, especially with marathon sex and surprisingly hot use of piercings and Thor going down on Loki's female bits and then fucking him, like, yesssss, give me that.

Snaked by hannahrhen, thor/loki + tony/loki, mildly nsfw, intersex!loki, in heat!loki, implied pregnant!loki, 1.4k
    From the cliff above, Loki settled in to watch Thor battle Iron Man. The victor would claim him. Utterly. (Or, an AU theory of what Tony and Thor really were fighting for.)
    Oh, man, I will read all the fic where Loki sits on the moutnaintop while Thor and Iron Man duel over him while he's in heat. The imagery here is lovely, the way Loki is nearly sodden with desire to be mounted, how hungry is it be be fucked well and thoroughly, yet he is still sharp-edged and selfish, he's still almost gleeful about it, which is a delicious combination. Just the hints of possible sex, the brief flashes of imagery are enough to be tasty as well, mmm. This was just pure fun and the slightest bit naughty in a really great way!

Don't Call Me Dulcinea by Jayjaybe, thor/loki + brief other avengers, NSFW, intersex!loki, h/c, healing cock fic, pwp, 5.4k
    Loki hasn't so much as touched himself since he found out the truth about his heritage, but a run-in with SHIELD forces him to confront himself. Cue a bit of help and Magical-Healing-Cock from his brother.
    Magical healing cock Thor is pretty much one way to guarantee that I will read your fic because I love that trope, especially when it is whole-heartedly embraced as such. There's also bulldozer!Thor that is super good for me and Thor loving Loki just as much in his Jotunn form as his As form and carrying him off and, oh, making Loki see the two of them in the mirror together because he refuses to accept Loki's self hate! Loki is beautiful like this and Thor dives in to lavish attention on him and take him apart, until Loki is a wreck as Thor licks into him and presses fingers into his cunt. The sex is delicious, it takes its time until Loki is nearly whining for it and accepting that this is good and not a cheap or degrading fuck, even as he still has a few sharp edges and barbed words left. Loki's threat to finish himself off if Thor doesn't hurry up was perfect and Thor's answering gring was even better! The banter and Loki goading Thor, who loves him and refuses to cheapen this, fucks slowly into Loki, where it's a lovely combination of filthy and heart-warming and that Thor/Loki dynamic I love so much, because it slowly brings Loki back to sanity again. This is a bit on the softer side, but sometimes that's what my heart really cries out for and so this was perfect for me.

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!

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.
