Two Lies and One Truth

That is what you’d like others to believe.

Nope. That happened. I know it did. 

Just admit it: you enjoyed my company.


lokilies asked: "Hail, Howard."

"I see what you did there. Hail Hydra. Goddammit. I literally cannot stop myself from saying that." He grimaced, leaning against the workbench with a tired sigh.

 

"Your Midgardian sciences fascinate me." He leaned a little further, reaching out to tilt the mortal’s chin up.

"So crude and primitive…it is a delight to see it all fall apart."

Howard didn’t stop him but he did arch his brow, curious. “What are you doing?” He asked, not really certain he understood what part of Loki’s words meant were directed at Hydra or Howard’s toys. Or just both.

"Observing. Is that not part of your practices in the realm of science?"

Cool fingers brushed against warm skin. Midgardian science did not have the same energy as the sorcery which he worked with. It was often erratic. A wild pulse, fragile, untamed. 

It was thrilling to his senses much like a piece of old pottery from the ages of old would be to an antiquarian.

"I could remove what they placed in you, of course. But that would be dull."

So I was that good.

No, you were drunk. You groped me and fell asleep. 

That is what you’d like others to believe.

Loki grinned. Leaning against Howard’s worktable, he tilted his head as if he were observing an interesting zoo specimen, his eyes alight with curiosity.

"A pity you do not say it like you mean it."

"If I said it any less full of spite and they’d flick my kill switch. I’ve got enough reason to stay loyal to the cause. Make toys that work and all that." Howard gave Loki a look. "You enjoy watching this sort of thing, don’t you?"

You make it sound like you intend to disappoint me.

Well I’m excited to show you.

Then speak nothing more of it until it is time for the grand reveal.

Then I will stick with Teacup.

Fine. [Though he isn’t happy to have the nicknames hanging over him again.]

You will still have to wait to travel with me to Asgard.

Of course. It better be worth my trouble.

I did say it was only a small surprise.

You make it sound like you intend to disappoint me.

Would you prefer ‘Bambi’?

No.

I’m fairly certain that one doesn’t apply…

Then I will stick with Teacup.
