cunningas: (metamorphosis)
Loki's favorite time of day is the time of thresholds. The in-between times. The times when it's not quite one thing and not quite yet another. Just before dawn when the sky is lightening but the dark has yet to be banished by the rising sun. The time just after sunset when the dark hasn't quite taken over again. Midnight, between one day and the next. Noon, between the morning and the afternoon.

That moment between a one breath and the next, a beat of the heart and the next.

The moment just before a climax.

The calm before the storm.

The times when the curtain has risen but the players aren't on stage yet. The time just before a battle when opponents stare at each other across a visible line only seconds from shouting a war cry, just before the clash.

The soft, gentle sinking-yet-floating feeling of a moment when one is between wakefulness and sleep.

All of the in-between times are his favorites, they tingle with possibility, with potential yet to be realised. With energy about to be expended. With the chance to see a little of more worlds than this.

That is his favorite time of day. As easy and simple to pin down as Loki himself.

Two legs. Breathing. Mildly attractive. Knows that you insert tab A into slot B....

Oh, you mean romance, not sex? That's a bit different, then.

They have to be able to make some kind of witty conversation, I mean honestly, who wants to romance some giggling little twit who can only talk about whether or not her dress makes her look fat? So witty conversation is a must. Also, she or he needs to be capable of a sense of humor. I hate it when people don't laugh at my jokes.

Lastly? Two legs. Breathing. Mildly attractive. Knows that you insert tab A into slot B.

That would about do it.

What? At least I have standards....as opposed to some people.

Getting Thor to wear a wedding dress and pretend to be Freya.

I mean, come on, how else were we supposed to get his damn hammer back? I was trying to help him out, even after he said some rather uncomplimentary things about me. You would have thought I was asking him to castrate himself with a rusty spoon or something. God, it was just a dress. And a veil. I didn't even make him wear makeup! And I think, secretly, he liked dressing up, anyway.

And yeah, so that Thrym guy tried to grope him. And maybe he made some comments about the things he'd like to do with Freya-Thor but really? It was all for a good cause and it's not like Thor didn't get some of his own back in the end.

But gods, getting him to wear that damn dress is the hardest thing I've ever done.

Plus it was a bitch finding one that would fit him.

Being tied to a rock wasn't fun.

Being tied to a jagged rock digging gashes into your back was less fun.

Being tied to a jagged rock digging gashes into your back by your son's entrails was even less fun.

Being tied to a jagged rock digging gashes into your back by your son's entrails with a poisonous snake dripping its venom into your eyes was even less fun than that.

Being tied to a jagged rock digging gashes into your back by your son's entrails with a poisonous snake dripping its venom into your eyes while deep in darkness was even less fun than that.

Being tied to a jagged rock digging gashes into your back by your son's entrails with a poisonous snake dripping its venom into your eyes while deep in the darkness and all alone was even less fun that that, if you can imagine.

Being tied to a jagged rock digging gashes into your back by your son's entrails with a poisonous snake dripping its venom into your eyes while deep in the darkness and all alone and sentenced there until the end of time was the complete epitome of a sucky existence.

Yeah, sure, ask Loki when he felt most alone. He won't tell you that. He'll laugh and say it's whenever he didn't have a bed companion but really?

That rock is it.

He keeps meaning to go take a sledgehammer to it.
