Summary: A 494-word discarded (for now) take on the ending for Chapter 8 of How I Met Your Father. So this is an alternate take, rather than a preview.
If you wanted to skip straight to an alternative-path happy ending, this would be it.
A/N: I wanted more gratuitously happy fic (this chapter will be… not as happy as the ones before, but have faith!)
A 322-word preview of the next chapter of How I Met Your Father.
Summary: Thor discovers that at least one of Loki’s children has inherited their father’s talent for being able to throw him instantly off-balance.
This scene takes place not long after the last chapter.
A/N: Only partially brought about by reading Hveðrungr’s Children by manic_intent (pre-Hobbit Durincest AU) (thanks to the lovely information that Hveðrungr is one of Loki’s names). (You would have gotten this snippet on Thursday night/Friday morning, but work got in the way). I confess I wrote this last year, but only recently got around to cleaning it up.
I loved being able to write the kids again. :)
loki how i met your father coughcough I THOUGHT THE SAME THING \O/ then, a sudden mental image of Loki smacking Thor in…
Hel watching from a side being Not Impressed by how her father(s) is(are) behaving
"Daddy," says Hel, "That was disgraceful."
Loki’s face contorts for a moment in complete disbelief, before he gets it under control.
“He's being disgraceful!” he retorts.
Hel shakes her head. “You both are,” she sighs. “But you’re older, so I expect better of you. Even if you’re acting like you’re Jor’s age right now.”
[Not sure if writing Hel’s reaction to the scenario above, or Hel’s reaction to Chapter 8 (not posted). Probably both.]
Summary: The morning after.
After the last chapter, of course. We’re not
Spoiler/Warning: This scene? When I saw this artwork (worksafe) had me reacting with “Heh, that looks like something I planned to happen later in my story…” This is FINALLY that “later”. It’s floating around on Tumblr here - artist was linked to it and said that was cool because she doesn’t use her tumblr for much outside of browsing. That link also links that comment.
A/N / Warning: I buried my head in my hands outlining this scene weeks earlier, and I am burying my head in my hands editing this scene because it is just so gratuitous. butihadsomuchfunwritingit. Well, to me at least. There is a fair chance it will disappear from the final version of the chapter, or be rewritten, so… er, enjoy, if such a thing is possible?
A/N 2: I have a… it’s not a rule, really; where if I have a crazy day at work I should come back and post fic, no matter how late it is, as long as I can. That way something good (well, other than experience and making a living) comes out of it.
Okay, I will stop stalling.
Outtakes from How I Met Your Father: The Conversation that the Clock Cut Off.
A/N: The Highly Convenient Clock was not in the first draft of Chapter 5 of How I Met Your Father. This was. I cut it because I felt it didn’t fit, and I didn’t feel that they were at the stage where they would be having this conversation.
Warnings: Thor/Loki, possible spoilers for a future scene.
