Descent Chapter 4
He ordered Eidra to pack his garments and ceremonial armor in his trunks the following day, first having to show her how to do so properly, all the while mumbling to himself that it would have been easier had he simply done it himself.
Thor cornered him that evening after they'd set in attendance at a High Council meeting.
“Brother, come with me to the sauna this evening, we will talk of the impending trip.”
Loki peered at him,“We shall have two weeks to talk of the trip while we are on it.”
But Thor would not be discouraged and he finally gave in, following him through the palace, past the arboretum, to the communal baths just outside the palace gates. Once inside the columned building, attendants handed them towels and bowed as they passed by on their way to the long wooden sauna. They disrobed at the b
Descent Chapter 3 He walked into the staff kitchen that morning with Eidra in tow and she had blanched to see Helgi and the others scramble to assist him. He had obtained a pair of breeches, a tunic and a pair of boots for her wear and when she looked at him, dumbfounded, he had waved her away with an order to change into them with due haste. She caught Helgi's stare as they left the kitchen.
Now she stood pressed against the railing at the edge of an open corral as Loki led to her, by the reins, a dark brown horse. He gestured for her to approach but her feet would not immediately move.
“Come, woman. You try my patience.”
She inched closer to him until, with a roll of his eyes, he drew the horse closer to her. She gazed up at the massive head, the dark brown eyes watching her, complacent.
Descent Chapter 2 She lay there, eyes open, listening to him groan as he moved about, swinging his legs over the edge of the bed where he now sat, elbows on his knees, head in hands.
“Woman!” He yelled, groaned again, “Up, wench.”
She rolled over to face the room and rose from the pallet, wincing at the stiffness in her muscles as she walked to where he sat.
He squinted up at her, sat back, “What in the name of the Gods happened to you? Have you started your menses?”
For a moment, she was confused then she looked down at the dried blood stain on her gown and fell mute. She could find no words to describe what had happened the night before.
“Woman, answer me,” he stood up, towering over her, “I am in
Descent Chapter 1 As the words “stein til stein for alltid en så sier jeg dette spell er gjort ” escaped from his lips, his brother, caught in his forward trajectory, found he was unable to move neither arm nor leg, his considerable bulk crashing to the arena floor mere inches from Loki. The staff, which Thor had held aimed like a javelin, shattered under the impact. His momentum carried him to his back, his arms at an awkward angle, the remains of the staff still clenched in his fists. Loki scuttled backwards away from where Thor lay, his blond locks pooled beneath his head, face a grimace as he stared upwards into the sky, chest heaving, the leather straps of his sparring armor crisscrossing his chest, dark with sweat and dirt.
“Release me, brother!” he roared. Loki could hear laughter in the stands.
Most of the time, when Thor issued a challenge, it was a c

At the time of this journal entry, it has been nearly a week since my fellow Midgardians arrived here in Asgard, peacefully I might add. All materials were transported safely, all personnel correctly assigned. Loki's household received another guest, one Elizabeth Chapel, graduate student here on a study program. All of this went on without a hitch.
If you ask me, it's a bit eerie..no, strike that...there was a small hitch and it was the fault of yours truly. My request for a sign language manual was approved. I translated it into Asgardian and was prepared to give it to the family nanny, Ingrid so she could teach her deaf daughter to sign. I am well aware I might have broken a rule or two but it would be the hardest of hearts that could bear witness to something they could fix and not at least make the effort to do so. I showed the woman the manual, even taught her daughter a couple quick words. She informed
