Loki grimaced at mention of the smell on him. He’d attempted to leave right after bathing, but Lorelei had other plans and they’d only continued from there. Even with a few quick sprays of colognes, the smell of their intimacies still lingered. The fact that Shadow had caught on, while being discreet, was not something he’d hoped would happen. 

The boys words were harsh,their truth venomous.  Loki could deny nothing mentioned, he knew it not to be false, and yet anger surged through him as Shadow continued his verbal assault. It was the first time Shadow had ever truly been this angered, and the first time Loki had to hold his temper and not strike the boy for speaking down to him. 

"You can’t have it because there are people out to kill me. If they spot you they will kill you in my place or use you as a tool to get to me. Once they have you they may harm you in more ways than your nightmares may ever show you." Loki whispered as he continued adding pressure to keep Shadow in place. "There are others who would take you and use you for what they originally created you for. Do you want to be a mere puppet?! It is by my hand that you were even allowed to live!" He spat out,instantly regretting his words. He’d known Shadow had always felt like a burden, but the words had slipped. His old habits of using peoples insecurities to harm them had struck in a way he’d never wanted. 

"We could live on Asgard.." He finally said after a moments silence. "You could be safe. You are old enough,and you can control yourself far better than I can. But I worry.." He sighed as he released Shadow from his hold. "I fear losing you and when I warn you of the dangers.." He muttered,letting out a deep breath.

"We’re going home." He said as he grasped the boys arm once more. "We’ll discuss this later. Consider yourself grounded from this moment on. You will not be allowed to leave the house without my knowing and you will not be seeing your friends until I say so. If you leave again without permission you will be punished further. I am your parent, you are my son. Until you are older you will respect what I tell you to do. Now get going before I blow up the nearest skiff and cause a panic."

Those words cut through him, hurt him more than his father grip to try and keep him seated. It was immediately noticeable on the boy’s face, a swirling of shock, anger, and sadness. He knew of his father’s habit of manipulation, cold and brutal, but Loki had always been kind to the boy, always telling Shadow that he was never a burden, that he genuinely loved and cared for the boy as his son. These feelings remained with him, weighing him down in his seat as Loki debated about moving them to Asgard before turning back to the teenage blood clone to ground him and get him moving.

Shadow swallowed before finding some words with which to reply. “And for your kindness, I have to give you everything, developing feelings of being indebted to you. Somehow I don’t believe you found me by chance, master!” He said, the pain in his voice evident as he tried to hide back tears that were beginning to form in his eyes. Was he Loki’s son or the liesmith’s slave? Were Loki’s dark tales that the trickster used to frighten Shadow in staying at home even true? The teenager did not know

Despite his harsh words, he was now shaking, Loki’s word greatly impacting him. Embarrassed and in pain, he slowly stood up, looking down at the ground and away from his father as he allowed for Loki to grasp his arm to take him further into the alley way to seek out a portal to bring them back home. 

image

Loki’s heart sunk at the boys shouting;his face stuck in a blank expression as he pulled him along to reach a safe place to return home from. Slave, master, burden. The words ran through his mind in a frenzy as he attempted to keep himself calm and collected. His hand tightened around Shadow’s wrist, desperate to keep him in his hold less he run away before he had time to apologize to him away from prying eyes. 

When they had finally reached home, Loki kept his grip on Shadow. Turning so he may face him,Loki began to speak. “Don’t you EVER call me that again!” His voice shook as he pointed a finger to Shadow’s face. “I am no master. You are no slave. I found you by chance, and I took you in not to raise you to be my slave but as my son. You are no burden, STOP thinking that way. How many years must I tell you over and over that you are no burden?” He let go of Shadow’s arm and let it fall to the boys side. 

"I spoke too rashly in Asgard. I can tell you are wounded by the words used, and I will for once admit my faults and apologize. What  I said to you was hurtful and vile. But it was not what I should have said." Loki said as he tried to give Shadow a hug. When he felt it better to give Shadow space,Loki took a few steps away from the boy. "I..will leave you to do as you want. But stay home. Just for a few days until we speak of this matter when we both are feeling that we can speak to one another." 

Turning on his heel, Loki took one last sullen look at his son. How could he have hurt him so badly? If Shadow had only listened to him and done as he should have-No. Shadow was correct he needed the interactions with friends that he made on his own. He needed space. He was at a ripe age and soon he may even seek more than just friends. He’d have to make changes. But not now. He had to be firm about his punishment or Shadow may think he could slip by future punishments with crying and harmful words. 

"Come inside soon. It will be dark and you need to have supper before you go to bed..I’ll be in my rooms. I do not require sustenance this night. And remember, you’re grounded. No leaving the house unless to the garden to tend to it. If you go beyond that,your punishment extends." Loki looked to the ground, taking in a deep breath,his shoulders sagging as he moved over to the porch. He’d let Shadow have time to himself. Then they could speak. 

"When you decide you want to speak of this again, I will be in my rooms. " He reminded Shadow before stepping inside, only briefly pausing to pick up Mittens as he attempted to run out. It was too late to allow the feline to run around. Placing Mittens in Shadows room, Loki glanced about the boys room before going to his own to think of what he’d done to the boy by preventing his finding friends and isolating him as well as of the harmful words he’d said in his bout of fear and anger.

brokenshadowofloki asked: The hologram appeared before Loki. It was Shadow who was using means of magic to communicate with him. He looked tired from a long day full of wonders. "Good evening, Papa." Shadow said. "Are you well this eve? Are you finding the Midgardian air more to your liking for you healing?"

brokenshadowofloki:

theliarstale:

 Looking up from his book, Loki smiled at the image of his son as it spoke. Shadow was growing in his travels, he looked even more like himself since he’d last seen him. Or rather, his younger and healthier self. With the poisons effects still bothering him, Loki had not found the energy to properly care for himself. His hair was a mess of tangled curls, his clothing,which he was usually very particular about, was wrinkled and had been worn for more than two days.  

"All is well,Shadow. I am of good health," He lied. "And Mittens is napping peacefully on your bed awaiting your return. The Midgardian air is not as clean as Asgards, but the change of scenery has helped." He said, hoping Shadow had missed the lie about his own health. While he felt he was getting well, the poison had left him weak and did not seem to be getting much better despite everything he’d tried. Whatever spell or curse had been placed inside of him  was intent on weakening him. 

"What of your travels?" Loki asked;attempting to change the subject so Shadow would not ask if he should come home. "Have you enjoyed your time in Vanaheimr with Frigga?"

image

Shadow sighed. He knew that his father had lied. He could see that wrinkles in Loki’s clothes, a slight gleam of oil in Loki’s hair, and the skin that was paler than usual but was slowly returning to a healthy shade. “If you have the energy there is hot spring not far from the house down the path of the Three Sisters-the path with three big willow trees in front of it to the south of the home. It may help you to ease your pain.” He suggested, though still worried about his father. The path of Three Sisters. The name came from a habit that Shadow had when he was a child and exploring his father’s lands on Midgard. He seemed to name areas of the lands. “It’s on the map that I made before I left, But tell me, have you been eating enough? I stored plenty of food and used small spells to preserve the food for you. As for Mittens, I hope that he isn’t being too much trouble.”

"Vanaheimr is very beautiful. It is nice to see a realm where seidr and magic are thoroughly praised. It seems that you and Amma have supporters here. I felt no need to use a glamour, though some of the elders here are a bit confused or believe that you age well. I have explained to them that I am your son and that cleared their confusion. Papa, many here are willing to help and I obtained a great many healing items that Amma has looked over." He said. "Papa, I can come home. My trip here is coming to a close. I can leave a day or two early. It wouldn’t be a problem."

image

Loki nodded, he knew of the hot springs and of the path which Shadow had spoken. He’d named the landmarks in the areas years ago when he was still a small boy, often times when Loki would take him for walks,Shadow would point out various trees and rocks that he favored. As Shadow had grown older, he’d become more creative and named them as well.The map which Shadow spoke of lay on his desk, unused, but left to give guidance and direction in case he left the house and in his weakened state became lost and disoriented.

But Loki had refused to leave the house. If he could not wander far on his own without appearing to be nothing but a weak old man, he preferred to stay indoors. However, that did not keep him from having various fits from the damage the poison still had on his body. He’d woken more than once to find himself on the floor in various rooms, the only thing that he was certain had woken him was the meowing and rubbing coming from Shadow’s pet, Mittens. 

Supporters in Vanaheim? Loki contemplated the boys words,vaguely recalling the hatred the Martyrs had gained for Thor after he had defeated them in battle. Those who were not able to escape being caught by the Aseir army were taken to the dungeons. The cells in the dungeons were shielded so that prisoners could not walk out of their small boxes, but they could speak to one another if they fancied.

Loki had rarely spoken to anyone in the dungeons. The few times he did, he made certain it was at the times when the guards would switch out and make their rounds around the entire dungeon. And when it came time for them to bring the daily gruel that was meant to sustain the prisoners,while there were more guards to distribute the gray slop, they often traveled in a small group so they could handle anyone who was brave enough to fight them in an attempt to flee. It was in those moments that Loki spoke to the other prisoners,rather than ignore their usual banter that came his way.Where they had started to speak ill of  him for his special treatment, or threaten him with what they would do to him once they found a way to escape their cells, they had soon come to respect him for his superior knowledge of the cells and planning skills. 
Had the Dark Elves not come, there was a planned prison riot that was scheduled for a mere few days later. 

Frigga would have supporters from the cleaner side of Vanaheim. She had been born and raised among the Vanir,loved by all who met her and after her fateful meeting with Odin, wed the future Allfather to bring peace between the realms. Had it not been for her sacrifice, the realms may still have been at each others necks from time to time.

"I am pleased to hear they do not bring you more trouble than needed.  If they were i may have to go and retrieve you myself." Loki stated as he gave Shadow a small smile.  "You should remain where you are. Your journey may be coming to a close, but you should not cut it short for something as silly as an old fool. I can care for myself. I’ve been sleeping more than usual, so I have not been beyond my room as much as usual. The meals you left remain, I have taken care to remind myself to eat, but the stomach will not allow much more than a few bites at a time. I only just managed to finish one of the bread and meat sandwiches you left for me. Mittens has been of assistance more than once. If he did not remind me to wake with his mewling, it is likely I would have forgotten the meals you left for me."

"WHAT YOU NEED,BROTHER," Loki groaned as he pulled the blankets over his head. "Is to worry less over silly dreams. They do not come true. You were never gifted with mothers powers, neither of us were. We dream,but it is not prophetic. The only time you’ve had a bad dream that has happened was after the event already happened and you woke up screaming my name because your foolishness caused me to fall off a cliff on the mountain while hunting and the injuries left me bed ridden for over two months. Then you woke me with your screaming later that night." Loki sighed as he moved the blankets to look at Thor. 

"I am not one to busy yourself with in bed. I am neither female nor is it appropriate. Their may be some barbaric races that allow such disturbing behavior, but ours does not." He added with a playful grin. He always loved seeing Thor’s reactions to his jests. With those big eyes and doofy face, Thor always seemed to have the best of reactions ready. 

"As for your being ready,father is old,but wise..But that does not mean he is not making a mistake. But it is nothing to worry over..It is everything you wanted,isn’t it? You should be glad that father is allowing you this chance at such a young age. Even he was older when grandfather passed away. But you aren’t ready. But you will forget that when the time comes. You’ll relish in the glory,as you always have."

"Stop screaming, by Od’s blood, you will wake up everybody, what time do you think it is?" Thor hissed, covering his ears. He considered Loki’s words though, he was overreacting, but the dream was so vivid and so scary. He chuckled at those memories, "you fell because you tripped on your feet, it was not my fault, I screamed until someone came to rescue you." He listened to the longest speech ever when that happened, from both of their parents, about how he should always look after Loki.

"I am not looking for that kind of activity, for heavens’ sake, I wanted someone to talk to, someone who cared." Everybody he tried to talk to would not let him speak, he was usually the one to listen and it was annoying when he wanted to share some doubts and thoughts.

Thor nodded, Loki’s words warmed his heart a little. Father knew what he was doing. Thor had both his parents and Loki for guidance, he wasn’t alone in this. “Aye, it is,” he nodded. Being a King was everything he could ask for, a chance to make his Father proud of him. He had been on this path for a long time, when Odin had both his sons he was already an old man, Thor knew he would be the youngest King Asgard ever had and he was afraid. He would never be match for the legend their Father was, the great Odin, the Allfather. He wished he could step out of his shadow and for once, be recognized for more than an Odinson, but by his name. “Thank you for your kind words, brother. I feel better now.”

"I am only speaking loud enough that you may hear me,and the guards in the hall if they are still standing out there." Loki replied with a yawn, his legs stretching before he positioned himself into a small ball so they could both fit on the bed without trouble. Or at least there wouldn’t be any if Thor didn’t shove his elbows into him.  "And I wouldn’t have tripped if you hadn’t shoved me." He murmured as he squirmed to get comfortable. 

"I know what you were seeking. It was a mere jest. If you sought those things you would rush to Sif’s side, or even one of the servant girls. I have seen a new one, red hair, curvy and round where it counts. Maybe you could seek her company sometime if I do not claim her first." Loki chuckled.

Looking back at his brother,seeing his brow knit with thought, Loki placed his hand gently upon Thor’s shoulder. “When everything is done, and the celebrations have finished, we will go hunting. It was always our favorite thing to do, but with so many things going on as of late, we have not been able to go together in some time. It will get quiet soon, and then we can go, just the two of us. It should ease any worry or fears you have remaining.” He paused as he pulled his arm away, his eyes moving to look at the mattress before looking back up to meet Thor’s gaze. 

"We live in a land where suns burn bright, shining their glory upon all it’s rays can reach. The lands are filled with mighty mountains that will gain the suns light so that the trees and plants upon it may grow, but it casts a shadow too large to escape. Don’t be trapped in the shadow."

2 away from 500 so when I finish replies I will work on a follow forever
but keep in mind if you aren’t on it, I am lazy and probably gave up searching for everyone-although I like to keep how many people I follow in the 98-110 range.

September 01st 2014

Since no one heard ‘Odin’ and Thor’s last talk before Thor went to Midgard, couldn’t it be possible for Loki to use that as a ploy to attack Earth? 
'They kidnapped and brainwashed your prince. He does not listen to reason and will not agree to come back to his rightful place in Asgard.' Type of speech and then send the armies out to attack and destroy Earth to take one more thing Thor loves away from him. 

 Heimdall would have seen Thor off,but I doubt he saw the conversation. Loki instantly turned back into himself after the talk,so it is likely he shielded it from Heimdalls view as he did with his talk with Laufey in Jotunheim. He could easily lie and say Thor left without permission,that he’d been acting strange etc.

Anonymous asked: If you could go back and do things over with raising your son what would you change? Would you give him more interaction with others? Would you become the king of Asgard and have Shadow be your prince and heir?

"I would allow him more interactions with other children, but I think most of all, I would have made an agreement with Thor so that Shadow could spend time with him as well. As much as a loathe my adoptive brother, Shadow needed more than just myself to look up to. If I had allowed Thor time to visit or to watch Shadow, then maybe I could have learned my faults sooner."

brokenshadowofloki asked: Some time had passed. Shadow came up to his father after so much time arguing or giving Loki the silent treatment. "Father, I don't like fighting, especially with you. I...I think it's time we talked rationally to understand each other's wants."

brokenshadowofloki:

theliarstale:

Loki had avoided Shadow since their fight, shutting himself away in his rooms so he could leave Shadow to himself. The boy was capable of caring for himself. Shadow had proven so on many occasions that he didn’t need his father to look after him, so Loki felt it unnecessary to do much more than leave the room so he may go to the lavatory. Instead, he remained silent as death,locked inside his own rooms like a child throwing a tantrum, while occupying his time with the many books that littered the floor and walls. Shadow had made no attempt to speak nor knock on the door, and so Loki  made no attempt to bother his son in order to avoid any future fights while the tensions between them still lingered. 

When the door to his rooms opened, Loki paid the boy no mind and kept his eyes on the pages of the book he held. When Shadow had finished speaking,he slowly turned his gaze upwards to meet the boys.  

"What each of us wants?" He said as his lips pulled into a tight and thin line. "Alright. Tell me, what is it you want, Shadow. If I like your answer, maybe I will reconsider your being grounded and change some of the rules. But first, we must know what each of us wants.  I will hear you before I speak of my own wants." 

 image

It seemed that stubbornness was a trait that both the father and son shared. From the moment that Loki had brought Shadow back home, he had locked himself in his rooms. It seemed both the father and son had been avoiding each other for days. Days which soon enough turned into a whole week before Frigga managed to give Shadow a push to go in and talk to his father. This fight needed to end.

When the teen entered his father’s room, he found the pale form of Loki seated in an arm chair reading. It was only then that the boy realized how far this fight had progressed. Normally when Shadow would enter, his father would look from his work to the son to see what he wanted. But now, Loki continued reading while listening before finally looking back up at that boy.

The young man found a seat on a nearby couch. He looked down at his shoes for a minute before looking back up at his father. “I want to have some freedom.” He admitted. “I want to be able to visit my playmates on Asgard and be able to make friends. I’m lonely and bored here. I also want to understand what you are so afraid of. I’ve heard your stories and warnings. I’m no longer a child who is easily scared by a story. I have never seen one of the bad people you believe to be after me and you. So what is the truth?”

image

Loki slowly closed his book, his arms moving in a sluggish manner as he reached to place it on the shelf beside his chair. So long as Shadow was willing to speak to him once more, it was best to give his full attention. Especially with the remaining tensions and unease that boiled inside of him. If he misheard or misinterpreted anything Shadow said and began another fight, who knew how long it would be before Shadow spoke to him again. It had been hard enough knowing the boy wanted nothing to do with him for the past week;it would be worse if the time grew longer. 

Taking in a deep breath, Loki glanced out the window as he searched for the proper response to give Shadow. He’d done what he’d never wanted;spreading lies over the truth of their life together in order to keep Shadow from wandering too far for him to reach. If he’d just kept to truths, or raised him in Asgard, he knew it would have been different. But for better or worse? 

"The truth is that Thor means you no harm. He and I have our differences, but he agreed to protect you long ago. The ones that we wished to protect you from,Thanos and Odin, have made no moves to retrieve you. Nor does it seem they know,or if they do the haven’t a care,that you exist. From what I can tell,as of now, you are safe. But I worry that it will not remain long. You may not recall, as you were a small child, but someone did attempt to steal you in the night once. That man no longer breaths. I dealt with him the way that the guards dealt with those who would foolishly attempt to take Thor or myself out of the palace grounds when we were small. I have never told you, but as children and young men, Thor and I were not allowed past the gates. When we wanted past them, we had to sneak out. You are more like myself than I had realized, and if I must be honest, it frightened me." Loki admitted with a small forced smile. 

"I have been considering for a time that we leave this place. You are of an age where wandering and learning about your environments should be encouraged. I have a home in Asgard, far from the capital, but in the realm. If we were to go there,you would have more freedom to wander and have the interactions with your friends that you long for. I worry that if we were to move there, you may be caught in one of my battles. I have kept them far from you for years because you could get injured. But there are rooms in which you,mittens and your amma could stay that would keep you well protected. If it is what you want, we will go there."
