Fan Fic / Agent Loki: International Man of Mayhem
Agent Loki: International Man of Mayhem
is an exceptional 13-part series of The Avengers
fanfics exploring the idea of What if S.H.I.E.L.D. kept Loki instead of sending him back to Asgard and rather than keeping him in a cell forever decided to make use of him?
Notable, among other things, for mostly being written as a Second-Person Narration
from Loki's point of view.
Also has a number of outakes and deleted scenes
Additionally, this Alternate Universe
fic also has its own AU in the form of Dee's other massive story, Small Things.
It is with great regret that we inform you that Dee has recently taken down the story, and indeed, all her work from aO3. While links to alternate sites where the story may be found would be appreciated, it is important to note that the author herself does not wish it to be circulated any more than it already has been.
Copies are given out on a case-by-case basis by at least one person who saved all main fics, two of the side stories, and Small Things
. Contact email@example.com.
- Functional Magic: Also called thaumathurgy. Mostly employed by Loki, but can theoretically be used by anyone.
- It's All About Me: Loki comments that "Stark canít go anywhere or do anything without a busload of retainers, a pyrotechnics display, and a rock concert."
- Lack of Empathy: Loki. Cognitive Empathy is a hard-learnt skill for him and he doesnít really experience affective empathy at all. His brain just isnít biologically built that way.
- Master of Disguise: Loki, particularly in Serpents On A Helicarrier.
- Music Magic: Although not the only form of magic in the series, Lokiís singing is in fact a mind control spell. Well it can be.
- Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Why Loki chooses to work with SHIELD. Also perhaps why Sigyn turns against Asgard.
- Noodle Incident: The Childhood Incident between Loki and Thor.
- Odd Friendship: Loki and Coulson. Actually, Loki and anyone.
- One-Gender Race: The Jotun. Maybe.
- Order Versus Chaos: Arguably the main theme throughout the 'verse. And Loki is Entropy's Cosmic Plaything.
