Eight Months of a Century by stereobone, thor/loki + other asgardians + avengers, NSFW, pregnant!loki, 32.5k
    "Six weeks ago," Loki says, when Thor remains silent. "Surely you remember."
    Sweet jesus, this fic. Sure, as soon as I saw, oh, hey, 32k+ fic about Loki getting knocked up, why, yes, I am going to read that! And I would have enjoyed it if that's all there really was to it, because, oh, man, Loki experiencing an unpredictable, batshit pregnancy, all the weird cravings and mood swings and nausea and discomfort and everything, that is all so very good for me, because it makes for a fascinating look at Loki's character and it makes me love him and sympathize with him and just generally have a lot of love in my heart. So, that part was pretty excellent. Even better was that he and Thor were staying with the Avengers and any time that happens, I am over the fucking moon again, never mind when both things happen at once! All of that was very satisfying.

But the best part of this fic? This was not happy and fluffy, for all that some of the trappings of it were. This Loki was razor-edged and so sharp and cutting and even just downright mean at times, just because Loki is angry and hates and is full of so much of everything. His relationship with Thor is not easy, they barely touch each other for most of the fic, Loki is hot and cold, always pushing Thor away in that way that Loki does, even when he clearly loves and wants Thor. And it wasn't just about hormones or anything like that, it was purely Loki, because he still had so much shit to work through, even after he was readjusting to life back in Asgard and working on being accepted again. That was so gorgeous and that was what really kept me sucked into this fic, reading until 5am because, fuck you, no way was I putting this fic down for anything so petty as a good night's sleep or whatever.

The author does a gorgeous job of making this about the Thor and Loki relationship and all the issues in it, with not just diving right into a romantic relationship, even though that's clearly what it is on both sides. The author does a gorgeous job of weaving that together with Loki's pregnancy, with the pregnancy not just being a way to draw them together and yet it is what draws them together, which makes sense when you read it, what I'm trying to say. The pacing of this is gorgeous, I love that it's focused on Thor&Loki, but the other Avengers are around and they're not so easily won over, except babies make people vulnerable and, oh, Loki's treatment of the kid growing inside him is so fucking perfect that I can hardly stand it. This author knew exactly how to bring out all the feelings I have about Thor/Loki+babies+their issues, knew exactly how to really get into the heart of their issues and play all the right notes, knew how to write an ending that left me with the worst fic hangover, jesus. I couldn't read anything after this, not until at least the next day, because I was too hung up on how emotionally satisfying the resolution of this was, how fucking PERFECT this fic was. I think this may yet be my favorite version of Thor and Loki's kid yet--which is helped by the baby having an actual presence in the fic, even when it's still about the Thor/Loki relationship. Just. UGH, SO GOOD. And bonus super hot sex that was fucking perfect for the mood and Loki being so... Loki. I'm just going to curl up in this fic and never let it go now.

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.

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. ♥

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

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

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.

Childhood Memories And Grown-up Dreams by sphinxofthenile, thor/loki, pregnant!loki, 12.8k
    Even evil geniuses with world domination tendencies, an IQ far too high for this realm and too much free time on their hands have to find something to do on a Friday night.
    This is the other "Ugh, SO SATISFYING" fic I read today and just... UGH, SO SATISFYING. Loki and Thor have a brief moment of getting drunk off their asses and Loki drops his prickly exterior for just a moment, long enough that they tumble into bed together, which Thor is clearly delighted about, but then Loki is back to his angry, twisted up self, especially when he finds himself sick in a way that he can't figure out and, boy, is he seriously fucking pissed about that. Oh, this Loki characterization is so good for me, the way he's just miserable and snarly and swiping at everything that comes near him, even when he finally has to break down and ask Thor for help, because he can't figure out what's wrong with him, and everything is making him barf or mood swing like hell or just generally be miserable. IT'S EVERYTHING THAT IS SO GOOD FOR ME.

Especially when Thor just loves Loki so much and is constantly a wellspring of being available for him, not minding Loki's all too sharp tongue, reading between the lines with Loki, still seeing the good in his brother, even when Loki is full of nothing but vitriol and sharp edges. The author does a gorgeous job of keeping those edges to Loki, so as much as I read this for Loki getting knocked up (I WANT SO MANY FICS of Loki dealing with the effects of being knocked up, the mood swings and morning sickness and, oh, everything), I wound up enjoying it for the fantastic Loki characterization! The entire narration, the way Loki just hisses and spits and thinks poisonous, moody thoughts about everything, about how his fucking life is the worst, that I could have just rolled around in it like it was catnip. And it works because Loki is sick and doesn't know what with and sometimes he thinks death is preferable to whatever this is, but he doesn't actually give up, instead he's just miserable and makes sure everyone else is, too. Except fucking Thor can never be miserable, not even when Loki's life is shattering apart again at being told he's fucking pregnant, and UGH THEY ARE THE BEST. THOR IS THE BEST. LOKI IS THE BEST. THIS FIC IS THE BEST. It was so good and I ate it up like it was the tastiest candy because it was.

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

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

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

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.

Heir Apparent by hannahrhen [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, pregnant!loki, thor 2 spoilers, ~1k
    If the guards wondered why Odin All-Father conserved his movements so stingily, they had sense enough not to say it. Not within Loki’s earshot, anyway, and that veneer of respect was all Loki needed.
    Oh, man, yes, thank you, because pregnant!Loki sitting on the throne of Asgard and just being so... Loki about it is really great for me. It scratches at that itch I so badly wanted, that Loki is Loki in his motivations, both in his determination and yet how you know things will blow up in his face, but also for knocked up Loki who's going to have Thor's child and that's just going to be all the more delicious when it's revealed. Also totally worth reading for the way Loki thinks about Thor's affect on everyone around him, because it's a short mention, but it's hilarious. Also, I laughed a lot at the fate of Odin in this one.

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

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!

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

Killer Gay Swans from Outer Space by perpetuallycaffeinated, thor/loki + avengers, nsfw, pregnant!loki, some fem!loki, 13k wip
    Killer Gay Swans from Outer Space have taken up living in Stark Tower without invitation and with malice of forethought. At least, that's what Tony tells himself when he's hiding from a pregnant Loki and an overly protective Thor.
    chapter 01: The mpreg tag is pretty much a near-instant guarantee to make me click open a fic on AO3 and it seems to frequently net me results like this. The joy of this first chapter is in knowing exactly where it's going and being so eager to get there that I was practically beaming at the screen because, yes, yes, give it to me and there's fun dialogue and Tony's take on Loki's dramatic speeches and then, oh, Loki's so annoyed when he realizes what's suddenly wrong with him and fuck you Thor he hates you soooo much this is all your fucking fault just let him stop puking for a minute and then he'll properly tell you how much. And, oh, I cannot wait for more of this one. *rubs hands together*
    chapter 02: So. Chapter 2. Where the Avengers realize Thor has knocked his brother up and that means explanation time, which is pretty hilarious, especially with the Avengers either carefully not making any faces at all or else thinking this is kind of hilarious. And I definitely loved it for that, but I think my favorite part was Thor's pov as he thought back to the time when he met with Loki and one thing led to another... and I love that, even in Thor's retelling/thoughts of it, Loki is such a delightful evil little shit. There's a lot of great, funny lines in this and, even in abbreviated flashback, Loki goading Thor into fucking him was pretty hot.
    chapter 03: Speaking of things that I really needed to be rewarded with from fandom! This chapter could almost stand by itself as a oneshot, since it's about a flashback to when Thor and Loki were younger, before everything happened in the movies, and Thor was first starting to bed anything that moved and Loki was cranky about this. The author does a fantastic job of showing that Loki's arguments about it are sound, that he actually is likely genuine in how Thor's actions threaten the kingdom, but there's obviously something more going on with him, an undercurrent of jealousy that you can pick up on as a reader. And, oh, you know exactly where this is going when a dark haired, green eyed maid catches Thor's eye, especially when Loki's been gone for awhile and warned Thor against sleeping with just anyone, because you never know when you'll get a snake in your bed. It's beautifully written, the author does a fantastic job with both characters (ugh, let me cry over solid Thor characterization again) and Loki in female form is super fucking hot, especially when she's clearly egging Thor on, who can still surprise her with how good he is at knowing what he's doing in bed. It's gorgeous for the interaction between Thor and Loki when they're being semi-normal brothers with each other, it's gorgeous for Thor flirting with a woman he doesn't know is Loki, it's gorgeous for the super hot sex scene, and it's gorgeous for the way Thor can't look at his brother the same way again after that. Basically, everything about this chapter was perfect for me here.
    chapter 04: I have definitely been waiting for this fic to update! And, oh, this chapter was such fun with the return to the delightful mix between cracky and fluffy tropes that I love so much in this fandom. Tony's rising mental breakdown at the disappearance of his deli meats, Thor's buying pretty much every maternity product he thinks Loki will like, and, best of all, Loki being still a batshit bag of dicks even while softened by his pregnancy. Once they started realizing where Loki was (and I had great fun at them trying to figure out a way through Loki's magic fucking up Tony's tower and keeping them away), I don't think I stopped smiling the entire time! Loki deliberately fucking with the rest of the team, that sly smile as he makes ridiculous demands and Thor's not even phased by it (and clearly thinks Loki's hilarious, ugh, yes, give me that forever, because Thor seriously thinks Loki's fuckery is the greatest thing ever), that was so good for me. Plus, the final conversation with the reveal of the origin of the fic's title was just... perfect. Now I want to call Loki a killer gay swan from outer space pretty much forever. If fandom doesn't give me at least one fanart of Loki as a swan, I am going to be so mad.

    Loki doesn’t know if Asgard has ever bred a Jotun before, but surely, this is one for the books. Heir to Asgard, impregnates bride won in war. It is laughable.
    Oh, this was such a great piece, because it's so many things I love and it's so... warm-hearted, that Loki doesn't know precisely how to deal with being pregnant or telling anyone, especially Thor, how they'll react to a Jotunn being pregnant with the heir of Asgard's child. That he puts it off for so long, but eventually can't hide it (and I love the moment of the reveal, the how of Thor's realization, it's really cute!) and, being that this is a happy fic, the ending is sweet and lovely and good. This is one of those short pieces that just made my day shine that much brighter.

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

Suddenly by wartransmission, thor/loki, nsfw, pregnant!loki, fem!loki, 5k
    “Don’t. Don’t call me your son,” Loki hisses with a frown. The clutch he has on his staff tightens, though he does not cause any violence. “I have never been your son, Odin. I don’t think I will ever be, after all the monsters I have birthed. But that’s quite alright,” he murmurs with a wry smirk, “I have Thor now, don’t I? The golden ruler of Asgard.” He laughs bitterly. “If I cannot have the love that I so longed for from you, Allfather, I suppose I’ll have to make do with your son.”
    This fic does a couple of lovely things--it has Loki in his female form, ostensibly so that Thor can "practice" with women, which Loki intends to use to keep more control, but still Thor manages to unwind him more than he expects, which is always a thing I really love, especially when Loki changes back and Thor still keeps going with him. But it's also... the fic spans from when they're children to a long time after the events of the movies, where it's not really about those specific events, but the relationship in a greater context, how much Thor genuinely loves and wants Loki, while Loki finds it difficult to love him back, but he wants Thor, wants that life and what it will bring him. There's something about this Loki that is a beautiful balance between genuinely not having any fonder feelings for Thor and that something that's obviously an undercurrent with him that says maybe he does love Thor. He doesn't love Thor, but then again maybe he does. The author somehow manages to make this work so beautifully well, especially with the way Loki winds himself around Thor's life and makes a permanent place for himself and it's not... it's not really sad or heartbreaking, somehow! Not even when Loki has seemingly placed an enchantment over Thor to love him. Plus, mmm, the sex was very, very nice, too.

Dreaming about Providence by wartransmission, thor/loki, pregnant!loki, 5.3k
    Thus, Loki’s plan is complete. He has a son who may take his place in reigning over Asgard and a protégé who will continue the flourishing of his magic. All that is left is removing the spell of false love on Thor, then ruler of Asgard, and Loki may finally find his peace in solitude. Yet...
    This is a sequel to "Suddenly", which you'll need to have read first.] After the events of the first fic, Loki has secured a position for himself, a child with Thor means that he'll always have a place in Asgard's ruling, so... Loki being Loki, he decides to step back from the relationship he has with Thor, to remove the enchantment. Also, because Thor kind wants to fuck him all the time and Loki is tired. This fic continues that gorgeous balance the first fic had, where Loki supposedly doesn't have any investment in the relationship and yet clearly there's something more there, even if he himself doesn't recognize it. And I love that he is willing to walk away, even from his own child (and I love their kid together, I love how the kid is a blend of his parents, yet still somehow his own, even in the brief scenes we see of him!), ready for everything to be torn into pieces, so he makes sure everything will crumble around him.

And then, Thor being Thor (because this is some good Thor characterization as well, DO YOU KNOW HOW RARE THAT IS) sees right through Loki, loves him anyway, and it's about... it's about Loki taking the first steps to learning how to accept being happy, that he can, that Thor can help him, that his children can help him, that his family can help him. It has all the trappings of a fic that should be breaking my heart (and it is bittersweet, but with a good ending), but instead I found myself really hopeful about it, in a way that matches the fic's tone. It's a lovely set of fics that's set over a long enough time that it feels epic even when it doesn't have to be super long and I love all the details woven into the story and! Thor and Loki actually having a kid that we get to meet and get a sense of! Another thing that is far, far too rare in fandom.

Cravings by psychoshinji, thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, pregnant!loki, 6.6k
    Loki loves being pregnant with Thor's kid, and part of that is because he knows that Thor is with him even though Asgard doesn't really approve. Of course he takes advantage of that fact by showing off his pregnancy as much as possible, wearing tight clothes that emphasize his baby belly, exaggerating his cravings, being overtly touchy-feely with Thor or randomly taking umbrage and blaming it on the hormones...
    You know why I read happy fic like this? Because of the previous fic, which (while really good!) was painful to read and, fuck, I needed something that made me feel good after that. And this fic was perfect for it. It's softer and fluffier, this is a fic set in the future where Thor is king and married to Loki who's about 3/4ths of a way through a pregnancy that makes him have horrible cravings and demands for attention but he's back to being pretty sane and calm again (all things considered) and it's just... pure joy and sunshine and I don't think I stopped smiling the entire way through it. Because, oh, Loki being a little shit who deliberately prods at everyone around him, who practically has temper tantrums (which result in guards having to go to the healers, yes good) when he doesn't get something he wants on a whim, and who has a sly little smirk on his face over the whole thing that you can only half catch, so you're not sure if it was actually there or not? Yes. Yes, give me all of that. And this Thor! Who loves him dearly and yet is exasperated and yet kind of finds him hilarious/endearing when he's like this, yes, give me all of that, too. I could have read 100k of this and I'm not even kidding a little bit because there's just something so completely charming and wonderful about the relationship between Thor and Loki, of Loki dealing with pregnancy and all the fun times that comes with it, and everyone around him being terrified out of their minds. My soul is soothed. All that and a bonus sex scene that was satisfying and just the perfect way to finish up the fic. Bless the author, I really needed this today.

The Trade by lies_d, thor/loki, NSFW, pregnant!loki, 14.8k
    When young Thor acquires a priceless book of magic, Loki wants it badly enough to offer sex in exchange for it... and Thor wants him badly enough to accept.
    This fandom keeps spoiling me! With things that should be terrible! But instead are actually good! The summary--When young Thor acquires a priceless book of magic, Loki wants it badly enough to offer sex in exchange for it... and Thor wants him badly enough to accept.--intrigued me greatly and I've liked the author's previous works, so I settled in to read. It's one of those that caught me and wouldn't let me go until I'd finished the whole thing, because it took a scenario that could have been ridiculous and instead made me enjoy it genuinely. The way Thor wanted to take Loki again and again, Loki's almost blase attitude towards it, except there was obviously something genuine underneath that, the way each time wasn't just about more sexytimes (though, that was lovely as well, because I will never have enough porn in this fandom, and fic like this only feeds my desire for more) but about the two of them learning each other or different insights into the character or just different, interesting situations. The author never felt routine in their multiple couplings, their conversations during as satisfying as the sex itself, and yet nothing was brief, everything felt perfectly paced. The ending does take a bit of a turn into angsty territory but it's fluffy angst and things resolve themselves well, so my reaction is, fuck you all if you don't understand my pure, pure love for this fic and everything about it and all the kinks of mine that it hit. That and it's, like, 17k of pure straight sexytimes. Bless this author.

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. ♥

Lies, Secrets, Misunderstandings by anonymous, thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, pregnant!loki, 14.6k wip
    Loki knows something is wrong when he begins to get sick in the mornings. He thinks nothing of it the first time it happens, but when it occurs every day for a week, he knows something is amiss.
    This fic hasn't been updated in well over a year, so it's technically a WIP, but I think it ends in a place that could almost work as an ending. It's likely not meant to be the true ending, but it'll be pretty satisfying even if I would have liked more of this. This is another one of those fics that's softer around the edges, but I make a lot of allowances for Loki being pregnant and the stress of that taking a toll on him and hormones out of whack and because, honestly, I love pregnant!Loki fic and I just sailed right the fuck on through this one. I felt like I'd hardly just begun to read when I was wrapping the fic up, despite that I think it was probably just under 15k! I know I'm enjoying something when I fly through it like that. And, also honestly, while this Loki is much softer than I usually like to read, I was quite fond of this Thor (for the most part) and sometimes I really enjoy having a good Thor characterization to wallow around in for awhile.

I like that the fic is also set in the future (another reason the characterization works for me) where Thor is king now, because I don't see nearly enough of that in fic, either! And I'd have read this fic just for Loki dealing with being pregnant and working through his relationship with Thor (and all the feelings that I had when they were totally shit at communicating properly with each other) but also there was a good amount of sex in this fic and, hey, that always endears a story to me. There were a handful of them and they were all super hot and satisfying, the kind where they both enjoyed their physical relationship, where Loki could do the slightest thing and Thor was ready to fuck him right then and there, where Thor would barely touch him and Loki was instantly wanting more. That is another thing that (despite my fondness for dub-con, I'll admit that) that I actually really, really love in fic like this. Oh, also! A semi-friendship with Sif and Loki in this fic! Yes, very good. Basically, this fic was for me when I needed something with fluffy angst, that I knew would work out and not break my heart, and this fic delivered wonderfully.

Killer Gay Swans from Outer Space by perpetuallycaffeinated, thor/loki + avengers, nsfw, pregnant!loki, some fem!loki, 13k wip
    Killer Gay Swans from Outer Space have taken up living in Stark Tower without invitation and with malice of forethought. At least, that's what Tony tells himself when he's hiding from a pregnant Loki and an overly protective Thor.
    chapter 01: The mpreg tag is pretty much a near-instant guarantee to make me click open a fic on AO3 and it seems to frequently net me results like this. The joy of this first chapter is in knowing exactly where it's going and being so eager to get there that I was practically beaming at the screen because, yes, yes, give it to me and there's fun dialogue and Tony's take on Loki's dramatic speeches and then, oh, Loki's so annoyed when he realizes what's suddenly wrong with him and fuck you Thor he hates you soooo much this is all your fucking fault just let him stop puking for a minute and then he'll properly tell you how much. And, oh, I cannot wait for more of this one. *rubs hands together*

    chapter 02: So. Chapter 2. Where the Avengers realize Thor has knocked his brother up and that means explanation time, which is pretty hilarious, especially with the Avengers either carefully not making any faces at all or else thinking this is kind of hilarious. And I definitely loved it for that, but I think my favorite part was Thor's pov as he thought back to the time when he met with Loki and one thing led to another... and I love that, even in Thor's retelling/thoughts of it, Loki is such a delightful evil little shit. There's a lot of great, funny lines in this and, even in abbreviated flashback, Loki goading Thor into fucking him was pretty hot.
    chapter 03: Speaking of things that I really needed to be rewarded with from fandom! This chapter could almost stand by itself as a oneshot, since it's about a flashback to when Thor and Loki were younger, before everything happened in the movies, and Thor was first starting to bed anything that moved and Loki was cranky about this. The author does a fantastic job of showing that Loki's arguments about it are sound, that he actually is likely genuine in how Thor's actions threaten the kingdom, but there's obviously something more going on with him, an undercurrent of jealousy that you can pick up on as a reader. And, oh, you know exactly where this is going when a dark haired, green eyed maid catches Thor's eye, especially when Loki's been gone for awhile and warned Thor against sleeping with just anyone, because you never know when you'll get a snake in your bed. It's beautifully written, the author does a fantastic job with both characters (ugh, let me cry over solid Thor characterization again) and Loki in female form is super fucking hot, especially when she's clearly egging Thor on, who can still surprise her with how good he is at knowing what he's doing in bed. It's gorgeous for the interaction between Thor and Loki when they're being semi-normal brothers with each other, it's gorgeous for Thor flirting with a woman he doesn't know is Loki, it's gorgeous for the super hot sex scene, and it's gorgeous for the way Thor can't look at his brother the same way again after that. Basically, everything about this chapter was perfect for me here.
    chapter 04: I have definitely been waiting for this fic to update! And, oh, this chapter was such fun with the return to the delightful mix between cracky and fluffy tropes that I love so much in this fandom. Tony's rising mental breakdown at the disappearance of his deli meats, Thor's buying pretty much every maternity product he thinks Loki will like, and, best of all, Loki being still a batshit bag of dicks even while softened by his pregnancy. Once they started realizing where Loki was (and I had great fun at them trying to figure out a way through Loki's magic fucking up Tony's tower and keeping them away), I don't think I stopped smiling the entire time! Loki deliberately fucking with the rest of the team, that sly smile as he makes ridiculous demands and Thor's not even phased by it (and clearly thinks Loki's hilarious, ugh, yes, give me that forever, because Thor seriously thinks Loki's fuckery is the greatest thing ever), that was so good for me. Plus, the final conversation with the reveal of the origin of the fic's title was just... perfect. Now I want to call Loki a killer gay swan from outer space pretty much forever. If fandom doesn't give me at least one fanart of Loki as a swan, I am going to be so mad.

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

just one of those days by anonymous, thor/loki, pregnant!loki, ~1k
    Loki bares his teeth in grimace and nearly rips the shirt he’s holding in half. “Nothing fits anymore,” he forces out. He looks absolutely angry, spots of color high on his cheeks, and Thor has to move now.
    So, I have certain weaknesses. And one of those weaknesses is pregnant!Loki who goes through so many of the usual difficulties of carrying a baby. The quicksilver mood shifts, the physical discomfort, the way Thor is total shit at being helpful, all of it is gorgeously done here and I can't tell you how much joy this fic gave me. I mean, don't get me wrong, Thor is sweet and adorable and amazing, but, holy shit, I laughed when he kept sticking his foot in his mouth. This is pure delight and charm, I loved it so much.

Recognizance - Unkempt Promises by Dreamhusband, thor/loki, NSFW, pregnant!loki, 3k
    Loki misses his children and confides in Thor, who offers to give him another while promising to step away after the deed is done. Loki was right not to trust him.
    I sort of metaphorically chewed on my thumb for awhile after reading this fic, because... it's a lot of the tropes I love (Thor/Loki, mpreg, etc.) but it's not precisely a happy fic, this Loki is bitter and angry and intends to have nothing to do with Thor, once he's with child. But I hope that the 1/? means that there will be more of this fic and the writing was so lovely, the author pulled so many feels from me, that I knew I was going to cave and fall in love with it anyway. And it is beautifully written (though, there are times when I had trouble telling who was saying what, because the speaker would change mid-paragraph, but that's a mild criticism) and, oh, the way Thor just misses and loves Loki, it gave me all the feelings in the world.

Beautiful by Asgardian Vampire (MetalliKirk), thor/loki, NSFW, pregnant!loki, ~1k
    Loki never looked so beautiful as when he was heavy with child, belly swollen from Thor’s seed inside him.
    Okay, you guys need to understand, I have certain kinks that I just really love and three of those collided hard in this fic. One, pregnant!Loki. Two, doting!Thor when Loki is pregnant with their child. And, three, Loki riding Thor and nearly losing himself in it, while Thor enjoys watching him. This is a short fic, just over 700 words long, but it's a nice bit of porn to end my day with, and it's totally adorable, giving me a really light-hearted, happy feeling afterwards. Plus, seriously. So many of my bulletproof kinks here. I was hardly going to be able to resist.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dreaming about Providence by wartransmission, thor/loki, pregnant!loki, 5.3k
    Thus, Loki’s plan is complete. He has a son who may take his place in reigning over Asgard and a protégé who will continue the flourishing of his magic. All that is left is removing the spell of false love on Thor, then ruler of Asgard, and Loki may finally find his peace in solitude. Yet...
    This is a sequel to "Suddenly", which you'll need to have read first. After the events of the first fic, Loki has secured a position for himself, a child with Thor means that he'll always have a place in Asgard's ruling, so... Loki being Loki, he decides to step back from the relationship he has with Thor, to remove the enchantment. Also, because Thor kind wants to fuck him all the time and Loki is tired. This fic continues that gorgeous balance the first fic had, where Loki supposedly doesn't have any investment in the relationship and yet clearly there's something more there, even if he himself doesn't recognize it. And I love that he is willing to walk away, even from his own child (and I love their kid together, I love how the kid is a blend of his parents, yet still somehow his own, even in the brief scenes we see of him!), ready for everything to be torn into pieces, so he makes sure everything will crumble around him.

And then, Thor being Thor (because this is some good Thor characterization as well, DO YOU KNOW HOW RARE THAT IS) sees right through Loki, loves him anyway, and it's about... it's about Loki taking the first steps to learning how to accept being happy, that he can, that Thor can help him, that his children can help him, that his family can help him. It has all the trappings of a fic that should be breaking my heart (and it is bittersweet, but with a good ending), but instead I found myself really hopeful about it, in a way that matches the fic's tone. It's a lovely set of fics that's set over a long enough time that it feels epic even when it doesn't have to be super long and I love all the details woven into the story and! Thor and Loki actually having a kid that we get to meet and get a sense of! Another thing that is far, far too rare in fandom.

The Rescue by madwriter223, thor/loki + clint, implied pregnant!loki, thorki kids, 1.5k
    Hawkeye remembered something he learned during his stint as Loki's minion. And as much as he hated the bastard, he really couldn't help but to help him. (really is better than it sounds).
    I meant to end on the previous fic, to wait until tomorrow to do any more reading. But then I was curious about this fic and it was short, so, eh, sure, why not. UGH, ALL MY FAVORITE THINGS. It probably won't be of interest to those who really hate Loki apologia, but fuck all of you, Loki's baby being kidnapped by the Chitauri, which Clint realizes and goes on a mission to get the baby back and when Loki has his kid back and Thor realizes they dared to take his and Loki's kid, and that's when HELLFIRE IS RAINED DOWN? Shit, yes, I ate that up like it was the best candy ever, because it was. Seriously, Loki at the end is the best. This is a short fic, but, oh, it was so good for me. Oh, and, all of that on top of Clint and Natasha being hardcore badasses as they make their way through the Chitauri army with a seriously pretty great Clint narration voice? Yes, please, more of this forever.

Dark Nights, Broken Places, and Home by wicked_writings, steve/loki, NSFW, pregnant!loki, loki's kids, human au, 6.9k
    Maybe it's coincidence, maybe it's not - but most likely it's just meant to happen. Sometimes, a dirty, dank alley is the best place to be.
    I picked this one up on a whim today, but I think it must have been meant to be, because I'd just gotten done reading another fic about Loki with his daughter and then, voila!, au fic where Steve stumbles over a kid on the street and eventually takes him in and Loki has a daughter that he's fiercely protective of and it was just... it was a little bit heartbreaking, but mostly sweet, and that was perfect. It's an au fic, one that doesn't do more than sketch out a light background for the characters or the world around them (which seems like a modern human au, but with Loki's pregnancy not causing a blink of an eye anywhere), but that's not what was needed here, instead it focused on the relationship and the slow building of trust and family and home. This is not a caustic Loki, there aren't a lot of sharp edges here, but I found that I didn't mind, because he held so much back and was so wary, that I could see this as a product of a completely different set of circumstances. It's such a warm, happy, satisfying read for me, one of those "in a different life, they could have been happy" and then they were fics that I love so much. I just want to wrap it around myself and curl up in it and take a warm, comfortable nap.

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!

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

Loki's Plan B by kyuunokitty, thor/loki, pregnant!loki, fluff, 22.7k
    When Loki hides himself in Midgard he ends up watching far too much daytime TV which is where he gets the idea for his Plan B. A plan so brilliant it will allow him to take his rightful place as ruler of Asgard in just 9 months.
    Chapters 01-09: Okay, this fic. The writing is rough around the edges, it could use a good scrub from a beta brush, and it's definitely the kind of cracky premise you just have to roll with, but the premise is--Loki is hanging out on Midgard to rest up for awhile and is bored, so he ends up watching a lot of daytime tv, which gives him a great idea for manipulating his way back into having the throne of Asgard. So, sure enough, Loki gets Thor to knock him up and then proceeds to secretly hate him sooooo much and not realize he loves him kind of a lot and it's just pregnancy hormones sending him for a loop and fuck all of these Avengers except maybe Steve Rogers, he's the only one Loki doesn't want to rip the face off of, except he has to try to pretend that this isn't a huge plot, so seriously his fucking life. And there's a certain charm to this fic, it hits all the tropes along the way and that's exactly what I wanted, because it's cute and Loki's life is hard and of course he's unwilling to admit how much he loves Thor and I'm pretty sure the entire point of the fic is cracky fluff. Apparently, I still need more of that in my life, because I ate this up like it was candy.
    Chapters 10-11: I had almost forgotten about this fic and probably should have skimmed back a bit to catch myself up, but I think it really doesn't need much more than the summary provides. So, Loki's knocked up, they're on Midgard with the Avengers, Loki hates his life, because he wasn't actually supposed to be soppily in love with his brother, but, well, here we all are. It's definitely not a fic for everyone, it's definitely on the cracky fluff side of things, and it's definitely one of those you need to save for when you're in the mood for something totally trope-laden. Tropes, btw, are not bad things, I fucking love them when I'm in the right mood for them, and tonight I totally just wanted to settle in and read about Loki dealing with his alarming pregnancy, his rage when Thor needs to go visit Jane Foster again, and his pretty much being willing to burn the world down when things go to shit after that.

The writing is still rough around the edges, but shows a lot of promise and is smoothing out, I think. There is some sexist language from Loki's pov about Jane, but it's pretty clear that it's meant to be a flaw of Loki's, that he's being a petty dick when he thinks such things and acts out, which is not out of character for him, no. Plus, chapter 11 had Loki in danger and you know what the best thing about Loki being in danger is? He goes all BAMF and is kind of seriously terrifying and I didn't expect the fic to take that turn, but I ate it up like candy! I definitely hope this one gets updated again soon.

untitled by hydromeli (hannibalisms) [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, pregnant!loki, ~1k
    short writing prompt: thor fucks loki and loki gets pregnant - they are both super excited!
    Basically, the prompt for this is everything I would ask for from fic and, thus, I had to read it. It's short, but it's pretty much pure delight and happiness, as Loki shows up in Thor's room and has some news for him, which leads to fun times in the bath. And it's totally cute to see the way Loki gives him the news! One of those fics that's not cracky (aside from pregnant!Loki, which isn't really that cracky) but is just a great way to make you feel better when you need it.

    Loki is a master of deceit. When, therefore, he tells Thor that he is pregnant Thor laughs in his face.
    This is super short, but it's so many of the things I love! It's a brief ficlet about Loki being pregnant, Thor not believing him, not until Loki starts to show and then has a lot of unusual behavior (being sick, wanting sex more and more and more) and it's just... happy and upbeat and just enough porn to be bite-sized and exactly what I wanted today. Especially since it's shark week and I'd had a grumpy morning, this was perfect.

untitled by mrhiddles [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, pregnant!loki, arranged marriage, jotunn!loki, ~1k
    Loki doesn’t know if Asgard has ever bred a Jotun before, but surely, this is one for the books. Heir to Asgard, impregnates bride won in war. It is laughable.
    Oh, this was such a great piece, because it's so many things I love and it's so... warm-hearted, that Loki doesn't know precisely how to deal with being pregnant or telling anyone, especially Thor, how they'll react to a Jotunn being pregnant with the heir of Asgard's child. That he puts it off for so long, but eventually can't hide it (and I love the moment of the reveal, the how of Thor's realization, it's really cute!) and, being that this is a happy fic, the ending is sweet and lovely and good. This is one of those short pieces that just made my day shine that much brighter.

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

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!

Cravings by psychoshinji, thor/loki + other asgardians, NSFW, pregnant!loki, 6.6k
    Loki loves being pregnant with Thor's kid, and part of that is because he knows that Thor is with him even though Asgard doesn't really approve. Of course he takes advantage of that fact by showing off his pregnancy as much as possible, wearing tight clothes that emphasize his baby belly, exaggerating his cravings, being overtly touchy-feely with Thor or randomly taking umbrage and blaming it on the hormones...
    You know why I read happy fic like this? Because of the previous fic, which (while really good!) was painful to read and, fuck, I needed something that made me feel good after that. And this fic was perfect for it. It's softer and fluffier, this is a fic set in the future where Thor is king and married to Loki who's about 3/4ths of a way through a pregnancy that makes him have horrible cravings and demands for attention but he's back to being pretty sane and calm again (all things considered) and it's just... pure joy and sunshine and I don't think I stopped smiling the entire way through it. Because, oh, Loki being a little shit who deliberately prods at everyone around him, who practically has temper tantrums (which result in guards having to go to the healers, yes good) when he doesn't get something he wants on a whim, and who has a sly little smirk on his face over the whole thing that you can only half catch, so you're not sure if it was actually there or not? Yes. Yes, give me all of that. And this Thor! Who loves him dearly and yet is exasperated and yet kind of finds him hilarious/endearing when he's like this, yes, give me all of that, too. I could have read 100k of this and I'm not even kidding a little bit because there's just something so completely charming and wonderful about the relationship between Thor and Loki, of Loki dealing with pregnancy and all the fun times that comes with it, and everyone around him being terrified out of their minds. My soul is soothed. All that and a bonus sex scene that was satisfying and just the perfect way to finish up the fic. Bless the author, I really needed this today.

restraint by desperatekingdomoflove [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, NSFW + artwork that is NSFW, satyr!loki, pregnant!loki, 1.7k
    Though Thor patiently weathered Loki’s mood swings and cravings and devoted himself to caring for his beloved, he too was frustrated by the pregnancy—namely by the fact that Loki had refused all intimacy since his belly had started to swell.
    The formatting of this fic did distract me (there's too many speakers in each paragraph, where it should be a new paragraph everytime there's a new speaker), but it was otherwise enjoyable and a fun piece for when you're in the miood for some satyr!Loki porn. If you don't enjoy the tropes and kinks that come with Ric's satyr!Loki art, then this isn't going to be the fic for you, especially if you're not a fan of a softer characterization for Loki, even in an AU fic. But if you don't mind that, this was fun and flithy and a delightful read. Plus art! Oh, man, Ric has really mastered the art of drawing the best, most deliciously filthy porn ever. ♥

    Loki birthed their first child in secret, in a damp, cool cave deep below the lowest halls of Asgard.
    I'm glad that I waited (well, I say that like I did it deliberately, instead of being lazy) for the second part to this series of short fics to be posted, because otherwise I might have had to have the entire rec consist of running off into the night screaming. I liked these two a lot, because it says so much about Loki and the way he feels about himself and his place in this family, and I actually loved the way Thor reacted (once the second part came around) because that's kind of what needed to happen, it was completely understandable, given how Loki sabotages everything. The first one is ouchy, but the second fixes it without sacrificing the emotional weight of it, there's still complicated and painful things there, it's not all fixed up neatly, but there's love and children and the sense of gods who live a very long time and everything I wanted there to be!

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.

Darkshines by KaeKae, thor/loki + balder/loki + thor/loki/balder, NSFW, pregnant!loki, 3.3k wip
    Loki would have not one, but two children gifted unto him by both of the Odinsons.
    I guess today is one of those days where I'm like READ ALL THE KNOCKED UP!LOKI FIC o/ ...not that that's not pretty much every day, mind. Especially when I get something as lovely as this out of it, because I love a good fic where Loki does what he wants for his own reasons, when those reasons are often tangled up in his feelings for Thor and Balder, but he's not any less dangerous and sharp for it. I love that he feels more settled here, that he's almost happy, but it's his own kind of happiness, which you see especially in the scene where Thor is angry that Loki is also carrying Balder's child at the same time, and Loki explains in his own way. There's so much history between him and Thor in that scene, so many feelings and so much that has happened and so much love between them, but Loki will not be shoved into the definitions that other people would have for him.

It's also shown beautifully in his scene with Frigga, who is the one person he tolerates softness from and, oh, I loved that scene so much, that Frigga accepts Loki as he is, that she loves him dearly and that's why their relationship is so precious. But there's also an excellent scene with Balder, where he's abused as always, because that's what Balder does, he just is so nice and I can't help wanting the best for him, even if it'll never be perfect between him and Loki. (But, then, I don't think either would want it to be.) There's even a scene of Loki in Jotunheim, because his children will not be kept from this part of their heritage and, oh, I just. I love this sharp, cutting Loki who loves his children, but not necessarily in a nice way. This Loki loves Thor, which is almost in a nice way, but it's not precisely it. This Loki loves his mother, but she might be the only one he loves purely nicely. And I really love the way it's told in scenes set at different points along the timeline of Loki's pregnancy, it allows for so much character insight this way!

    Thor and Loki are hamsters. Thor is busy hitting the 30mph mark on the speedometer above his wheel when Loki waddles in looking tired.

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

    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!

Heir Apparent by hannahrhen [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, pregnant!loki, thor 2 spoilers, ~1k
    If the guards wondered why Odin All-Father conserved his movements so stingily, they had sense enough not to say it. Not within Loki’s earshot, anyway, and that veneer of respect was all Loki needed.
    Oh, man, yes, thank you, because pregnant!Loki sitting on the throne of Asgard and just being so... Loki about it is really great for me. It scratches at that itch I so badly wanted, that Loki is Loki in his motivations, both in his determination and yet how you know things will blow up in his face, but also for knocked up Loki who's going to have Thor's child and that's just going to be all the more delicious when it's revealed. Also totally worth reading for the way Loki thinks about Thor's affect on everyone around him, because it's a short mention, but it's hilarious. Also, I laughed a lot at the fate of Odin in this one.

untitled by mrhiddles [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, pregnant!loki, arranged marriage, jotunn!loki, ~1k
    Loki doesn’t know if Asgard has ever bred a Jotun before, but surely, this is one for the books. Heir to Asgard, impregnates bride won in war. It is laughable.
    Oh, this was such a great piece, because it's so many things I love and it's so... warm-hearted, that Loki doesn't know precisely how to deal with being pregnant or telling anyone, especially Thor, how they'll react to a Jotunn being pregnant with the heir of Asgard's child. That he puts it off for so long, but eventually can't hide it (and I love the moment of the reveal, the how of Thor's realization, it's really cute!) and, being that this is a happy fic, the ending is sweet and lovely and good. This is one of those short pieces that just made my day shine that much brighter.

Loki and the Tentacles by Ryoko21, tentacles/loki, NSFW, dub-con/non-con, drugging, pregnant!loki, 3.5k
    So Loki falls from the bridge and he falls for a long, long time, and then he lands… just not anywhere near the Chitauri. Instead, he lands on some desolated planet that, at first, seems abandoned… until Loki runs into a tentacle monster. Tentacle rape ensues.
    I had a bit of an emotional rollercoaster ride with this fic, which is basically went as such: "Whoa, Loki tentacle monster fic, let me at that! Hey, wait, why are you giving him broken limbs, that's not sexy-- Oh, wow, bless you for fixing that-- Hey, is the tentacle monster... wow, that is the most considerate lover tentacle monster I have ever seen! THIS IS THE GREATEST." It really was the greatest thing I read all day, the fic knowing how to just whole-heartedly embrace the concept of Loki landing on a seemingly deserted world, being snatched up by a bunch of tentacles and then just... it's hilarious (the tentacle monster heals him and gets him to feel good and sucks him off while slithering inside him and just... asd;lfkjalskj) but it's also actually really hot at the same time. It's one of those things that has to be carefully done, not too serious or too cracky, but this fic manages it in such an excellent way. This was great.

15 Day OTP Challenge (chapter 4) by umakoo [ tumblr link ], thor/loki, NSFW, fem!loki, post-pregnancy lactation kink, ~1k
    The early morning light bathed the room in warm gold as Loki sat down on the edge of the bed to remove his fur slippers, ready to join his sleeping brother under the covers.
    This kink may not be for everyone and that's fine, but what I love about what this fic does with it--aside from, yessss, Thor and Loki having kids and Loki's body being uncomfortable after the birth so Thor's just so genuinely happy to help--is that this is such an enthusiastic, upbeat kind of kink! Thor enjoys when Loki's breasts are full of milk, he makes it good for Loki and clearly has a great time doing this, it's fun and happy for both of them and you have no idea how much I love FUN things! And I also really appreciate m/f porn that's not just sticking a cock into a vulva, but that there's more to it here, both for the way Thor handles Loki's breasts and the way space is made between Loki's legs that's not actually inside him, yet it's still really hot. It's not a kink I expected to enjoy, but I found that I really did!

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.

    Loki birthed their first child in secret, in a damp, cool cave deep below the lowest halls of Asgard.
    I'm glad that I waited (well, I say that like I did it deliberately, instead of being lazy) for the second part to this series of short fics to be posted, because otherwise I might have had to have the entire rec consist of running off into the night screaming. I liked these two a lot, because it says so much about Loki and the way he feels about himself and his place in this family, and I actually loved the way Thor reacted (once the second part came around) because that's kind of what needed to happen, it was completely understandable, given how Loki sabotages everything. The first one is ouchy, but the second fixes it without sacrificing the emotional weight of it, there's still complicated and painful things there, it's not all fixed up neatly, but there's love and children and the sense of gods who live a very long time and everything I wanted there to be!

    "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!

Avengers/Thor: just one of those days by anonymous - So, I have certain weaknesses. And one of those weaknesses is pregnant!Loki who goes through so many of the usual difficulties of carrying a baby. The quicksilver mood shifts, the physical discomfort, the way Thor is total shit at being helpful, all of it is gorgeously done here and I can't tell you how much joy this fic gave me. I mean, don't get me wrong, Thor is sweet and adorable and amazing, but, holy shit, I laughed when he kept sticking his foot in his mouth. This is pure delight and charm, I loved it so much.

    The young Jotun Prince, Loki, is given to Asgard as a bride for Thor in exchange for peace.
    [ Chapter 1 ] Ahhh, there are certain things that I'm weak to in this fandom and this fic hit on three of them immediately--Thor/Loki, arranged marriage, and eventual pregnancy. Fuck you all, I eat this stuff up like it's candy and, oh, this fic is only just over 500 words so far, it's only the beginning and basic setup, not much beyond Loki being exchanged for the Casket, but it's solidly written, and has some lovely moments of imagery so far. I just. Picturing bb!Jotunn!Loki holding his father's hand, looking at the Aesir come to make him part of their family, I'm just. Ugh. So weak to this. And I really, really hope there's going to be more of this one soon. *rubs hands gleefully*
    [ Chapter 2 ] Oh, another short chapter, but I don't even care! Arranged marriage! Jotunn!bb!Loki in Asgard! And it's so darling and surprisingly sweet that I could just fucking coo at it because omg there's a brief scene of Loki seeing his first horse and then, because he's never ridden one before, he'll ride with Thor and, shit, that is apparently a weakness I never knew I had. ADORABLE BABIES.
    [ Chapter 3 ] I know I should wait a bit to let this story pile up some before doing another rec but, whatever, fuck you guys, precious baby Loki coming to Asgard for the first time and everyone being nice to the little Jotunn prince who doesn't know how to deal with all of this certainly not his arranged marriage to Thor but it's all so sweet and adorable that I just love it. This fic is all the things I'm weak to and this chapter was really good for me today, given that I've been reading a bunch of angsty fic all day.
    [ Chapter 4-10 ] I let this fic sit for a bit (not intentionally, I was just distracted for a few days with other things) and then decided to read this selection of chapters all in one go today. And you know what my favorite thing about this fic is? IT'S SO HAPPY. Everything is wonderful! Asgard thinks Loki is darling! Loki makes friends with Sif! Loki and Thor clearly love each other! Loki is being taught magic and it's totally fine! He's also learning how to fight because he wants to do both! The author has clearly thrown out whatever doesn't work (in making this a happy fic) and I could not love them more for it, because the entire delight of this fic is that IT IS SO HAPPY AND WONDERFUL. And it's not necessarily even saccharine about it (though, it's not for those who only prefer the messier, more complicated stories, but I have always been a fan of FUCK YOU SOMETIMES MY HEART JUST NEEDS TO BE HAPPY), it's just... everything goes right, everything is good, everything is darling. And, oh, the most recent chapter, while Thor is away on his first quest and Loki tries not to worry about him, but ends up doing so anyway, and you can feel that they're really falling in love with each other and just. Yes. This does my heart so much good.
    [ Chapter 11 ] This fic continues to be my happy place and I would be crushed if the author ever took it away from me. This chapter is simply about the morning after Thor and Loki's first time, where doubts creep in a bit, because Thor still feels Loki is young yet, but mostly it's just the sweetest thing and made me feel all warm and fluffy on the inside and I can't tell you how much better my day was for it, even just as soon as I saw it had updated, my day was instantly better. Plus, bonus quick scene with Thor and Frigga! Best.
    [ Chapter 12 ] I was originally going to wait until the next chapter of this fic had been posted but, ugh, no, I can't hold myself back because this is one of my favorites in the fandom. The chapters are always short, but they're just such bursts of sunshine in my life! Even when things are angsty (as they are in this chapter--as Thor wonders if Loki ever imagined being with someone else, which of course Loki has thought about, which sends Thor into a brood) I have trust in the author to use it to bring back the warm and fuzzies. Because it's pretty obvious that it's about how much they both want to be with each other and only each other, that jealousy is going to come up sometimes, and it'll be something for them to work through. Plus bonus Sif and Loki being cute while she has little patience for their spats! Adorable!
    [ Chapter 13 ] Once again, my day was better when I saw the latest chapter of this was posted, because my happy place! Even as, I can't lie, I've been following this fic long enough that I'm fond of the characters to the degree that the fluffy angst (when Thor misunderstands Loki's meaning, so he kisses someone else) kind of made me ache for them, even as I knew the author would eventually make it right. The other thing I found I really loved about this chapter in particular was that Loki was a little vicious here, for all that this is a much softer, much nicer universe for Loki, he's still able to whip around and very nearly hiss when he's angry. Still, though. This is a happy making fic and bless the author for it. *basks*
    [ Chapter 14 ] This is another short chapter, but ah! Sunshine in my life again! Especially because there are happy makeouts, but also Loki being firm about how, if this is going to work from now on, they have to be serious about each other and pledge themselves to each other, which means Thor is going to go all out. As Thor is wont to do. And that, too, is going to be so good for me because ahhhhh Thor trying to be thoughtful and willing to make up for his mistakes even if he messes things up sometimes! Yes, give me that always.
    [ Chapter 15-16 ] These two chapters read really well together, so I'm glad I waited to read them together (especially since chapter 16 is extra short) and, ahhhh, this fic is once again my happy place. It continues to be pure sunshine and rainbows as Thor goes to Jotunheim to ask permission to properly court Loki because he knows that will show Loki he's serious about this and Loki goes along and actually has a pretty good time on Jotunheim, where they're thankful for the sacrifice he's made to help better their Realm. I'm sorry that this fic seems to be meandering towards the end (WHAT WILL I DO WITHOUT MY HAPPY PLACE??) but these two chapters were lovely and heart-warming, putting to rest the issues Loki has with missing Jotunheim in a lovely way, where it's a good feeling now, but he belongs in Asgard now and, ugh, the small details of things like Loki slipping his hand into Thor's, that just makes me happy. Bleh, this rec was incoherent but whatever. This made me happy.
    [ Chapter 17-18 ] Ahhhh, I love this fic so much! And now it's been updated again! I love what this chapter does especially, where it's more sunshine and happiness and sweetness, where Thor really is working to figure out how to make things up to Loki, to treat him better, and finds a thoughtful way here. When he includes Loki the way he does in this chapter, it accomplishes several things, including treating Loki seriously and yet not shoving him into the same box that canon did, but instead letting him play to his own strengths. This was Thor asking, rather than assuming or demanding, this was Thor actually working to do something right, and it pays off wonderfully. But also there's a scene where Loki decides to cut his hair and has Thor help and it's just pure fluff, but in that way that makes me happy and works for me because a) this is a different universe with different circumstances for the characters and b) they're teenagers in love and they do shit like that. Also, fuck you, I love hair cutting. *__* → Up All Night by The Cat & The Hiddle [ mobile ver. ], thor/loki, nsfw, past pregnant!loki, thorki parents, fluff, 1.1k
    Thor arrives home on Asgard to find Loki up all night with a cranky baby.
    This is set in a universe of several fics, but so long as you know Loki recently gave birth to a little Thorki bebbeh, you're good to go, I think. And this was pure, pure fluff that I desperately needed, because all the angst in fandom was getting to me. Instead of that, I needed some pure sweetness where Thor and Loki are married and have a daughter and love each other and fuck in the bath. I needed it. The sex is brief, just a couple of paragraphs, but it's of Loki riding Thor's cock in the bath, so, you know, I was all over it. And I just really appreciated that I felt better after reading this, because it did my heart good.

Haze by Misaya, thor/loki, NSFW, sick fic, references to pregant!loki, 3.3k
    Loki didn't stay in the dining hall to have his favourite raspberry jam and cream cake, and Thor is 100% sure that he's about to become a father. Of course, Thor's been wrong before. Loads of times. Even with 100% certainty. But Loki is oh so sensitive during pregnancy, so how could he be anything but? Sickfic, fever sex, etc etc.
    This is part of a larger series, but aside from a bit of an AU setting, I don't think you need to read them in order, so it's fine if you want to skip right to this one. I have a weakness for a character getting sick and having to deal with the other half of the OTP, so I was all over this right away and I was also definitely on a mission for as much fluffy fic as I could find over this last week! And this one was pure silly, cracky, fluffy fun! It's goofy and has tropes that usually annoy me (like Thor not being very bright), but this is so charming that it came around and won me over. It's deliberately not serious, it's embracing the idea for humor and that makes a big difference! Plus, the fic is honestly cute and funny, as Thor insists that sick!Loki is actually pregnant and I smiled the entire way through this because it's so adorable! Sick Loki and Thor treating him like he's pregant and pure goofball charm. Ahhhhhh. I love it genuinely and felt so much better after reading it, especially every time Thor clearly wanted to fuck Loki while seeing him all flushed and laid out like that. It was a very satisfying bj + fingering sex scene as well and I love how Thor was so... Thor in how good naturedly aggressive he was! Basically, this is a big ball of sunshine for when you're in the mood for that.

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

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

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

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

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

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