is that whenever Thor talks to him or tries to convince him, he grasps onto the side of Loki’s neck, fitting his fingers around where the pads brush the first vertebrae, thumb sliding under the jaw line, close enough to be behind it. Like this, without the armour:
HOLY FUCKING SHIT
#loki and thor grew up #sharing these intimate things #holding each other on nights that the other had a nightmare #holding hands for security and comfort #brief tender kisses placed on the others temple or forehead #and so they grow up blurring up those lines #until one day sif or someone sees them #and tells thor that it’s wrong #so thor stops it#but sometimes #in moments between the two of them #he’ll steal a kiss #or he’ll place his hand on loki’s lower back #or brush his fingers against loki’s neck#because it helps him focus helps keep him centered #to hold onto loki #and loki understands #he understands that this is something they probably shouldn’t do#because well other brothers don’t #but it’s the way they’ve always been and so he teases thor in times he knows they can’t do anything
Loki didn’t understand what his brother was so worried about. Half the prompts on the website he was on was from him anyway.
this is the best
this made me think of this.
… and then I suddenly remembered that I think I wrote the early scratchings of fic for this, oh my god.
