When Loki turns up demanding Thor’s help on a quest to retrieve the All-Mother from Valhalla, Thor isn’t about to say no. But that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten anything, and what better time than a road trip through the backwaters of the universe for trying to talk things out?
By god, I don’t know what happened.
I knew the moment I left the theater that I was going to write fic bringing Frigga back, because obviously. The “road trip to Valhalla” started out as a joke and then became…not a joke, like most of the things I joke about. And then I had a rapidly expanding movie coda that was about bringing Frigga back - but also about getting somewhere with the Thor/Loki relationship that I felt good about. Because I’m really all about fixing things. (No, actually.)
So, so many hugs to the incomparable thorkizillas, who gave me pages and pages of invaluable commentary and criticism and put up with my nervous fretting. Thanks also to my personal Steve, zaataronpita, who makes sure I don’t go off the rails. And how about a bonus thanks to all the people following me on tumblr who put up with my writing angst on a regular basis, and somehow still seem to like me.
Other fics are coming! I’m working on everything that’s still in progress. But this one, at least, is done. I hope you enjoy.
Edit: and a belated thanks also to portraitoftheoddity who, when I had written myself into a corner, helped me wriggle out of it again. You are a lifesaver, friend.
