Tuesday - AU

Hi everyone! I’m chibifukurou and I’m still here enabling your comment_fic addiction this week.

Today’s theme is AU. Today all the prompts have to involve an AU of some sort.  Whether it be fusions or Universes with minor differences, anything goes as far as fandoms and pairings are concerned.

The Rules:

■        Don’t prompt more than 5 prompts in a row or 3 prompts per fandom. When someone has answered your prompt, you can prompt again.

■        No spoilers in your prompt until at least 1 week after the original airing or publication date. If there are spoilers in your fic, you must warn in bold and leave at least 3 spaces.

■        Thank your fic providers they thrive on feedback.

■        For the sake of the code monkeys’ sanity remember to format your prompts correctly.

Formatting examples:
Fandom, Character, prompt
Fandom, Character/Character, prompt
Fandom/Fandom, Character(s), prompt


None of today's prompts interest you? Make someone’s day and answer one of the myriad of Lonely prompts!

Avengers movieverse, Tony/+Loki, Instead of becoming a supervillain when he fell to Earth Loki somehow ended up as Tony Stark's personal assistant.

FILL: Tony's New Assistant, part 1, Pepper's POV
The first time Pepper met Tony’s new assistant, it was by phone.

She had called Tony to remind him of the board meeting and to demand/beg/bribe/threaten him to show up. Instead of reaching Tony, though, she found herself speaking to a rather gorgeous (of course) androgynous face with cheekbones to die for, wearing a green t-shirt (a t-shirt!) that really brought out his (her?) eyes. Who answered the phone with, “What do you want?”

She had wondered how Tony would manage to kick his conquests out of the house after he was done with them without her to do it, but she had always assumed that he would manage. She gave this one a tight smile. “Can you please put Tony on the line.”

“No.”

She glared. He (she was pretty sure the person was male at this point) looked bored. (God, she hoped he was over eighteen. It had never been a concern before, but this person looked and acted like a teenager.)

“I’m Pepper Potts, the CEO of Stark Industries, calling about a professional matter. Put Tony on the line.”

“And I’m Loptr, his assistant. If I think the message is important, I might decide to tell him.”

After a moment, Pepper decided that while she had never done anything in her life to make her deserve having to put up with this, Tony certainly had done plenty for him to deserve it. She would let him deal with it.

“The board meeting is this afternoon at 2 PM. Please let him know that I expect him to be there.”

“Is it?” And suddenly the guy looked very interested, with a sharp smile on his face. “E-mail me the board packet.”

She raised an eyebrow at that command, but thought she’d go ahead and see what happened. A few keystrokes and “It’s in his in-box.” If this guy really was Tony’s assistant, he’d be able to access it there. If he wasn’t, then he wouldn’t.

He typed a few keystrokes on his end, and apparently he really was Tony’s assistant. “Interesting. I’ll be there with Tony at 2.”

And he hung up.

Tony not only attended the board meeting that afternoon but he paid attention through the whole thing, with Mr. Loptr Laufeyson sitting quietly in a chair at the back of the room, taking notes.

She decided that she was impressed.

Oh, Loki. Way to totally fail at being anyone's underling at anything. XD

If Loki and Pepper team up against him, Tony is extra burnt toast. ♥

Yeah, Loki doesn't really do respectful. *grin* He does practical and get-what-he-wants, but respectful, not so much.

And if he does bring you something to drink, be extremely wary of actually consuming it.

FILL: Tony's New Assistant, part 2, Tony's POV
Tony first found the kid because there was a wallet in his pocket.

Tony didn’t have a wallet. He had a famous face, a phone, and an assistant to take care of anything that might need a wallet and none of them messed up the lines of his suits.

Well, his assistants before Pepper had sometimes messed up the lines of his suit, and at the moment he was post-Pepper and pre whoever came next, so maybe he should have been carrying a wallet, but the fact remained that he hadn’t been at the start of the evening and by the end of the evening, he had been.

It had been a wallet for a Bernard Hugh Cunningham the fourth, which was just embarrassing.

He hadn’t needed to hack into any security systems to figure out what had happened because it turned out that nearly everyone who had gone to that party with a wallet had gone home with someone else’s. The venue was highly embarrassed, most of the party-goers were highly incensed, and Tony was highly amused.

What did take some extra hacking was to figure out who had done it, because the venue’s security detail had failed entirely to pinpoint any particular individual.

Tony, well, okay, JARVIS had managed to identify one person and track him down to the New York Public Library the following day, where he was writing a combination of rude comments and brilliant corrections into the physics texts. Tony recognized that look of sulky boredom. He’d informed the kid that he was hired and then asked him his name, since not even JARVIS had managed to actually find the kid’s records yet.

Young, gorgeous, brilliant, a sense of humor that led to practical jokes, and without the money that had helped Tony survive, Tony wasn’t at all surprised that the kid—Loptr—was also sullen, defensive and hurting. He couldn’t do anything about the past, but he could do something about the future.

Their discussion about quantum particles on the drive back to his place had been wonderful and given him all sorts of ideas. They were co-writing an academic article for publication and trying to figure out a practical implementation within three days.

By the next week, when Loptr let him know that there was a board meeting in the afternoon and either Tony was going or Loptr was going with Tony’s proxy vote, the glint in Loptr’s eyes had Tony suiting up and paying attention in the meeting.

Pepper was impressed. Tony was impressed, too. Working with Loptr felt a bit like driving one of his cars on the best of twisty mountain roads. Tony was in control, but only just. He was fairly sure that, at any moment, any lack of attention or just plain bad luck could throw them both off a cliff at high speed. There was a pretty good chance that this thing with Loptr would end in disaster. Of course, the high chance of disaster made it all the more obvious that Loptr was Tony’s kind of assistant.

The idea of Loki crashing a snooty party and then switching everyone's wallets for the pure fun of pissing everyone off is hilarious.

Also, I am in love with this head canon.

Lord only knows what fresh Hell will reign down on the world if Tony Stark is ever well and truly bored for several days at a time without Pepper- or his new assistant- to distract him.

*grin* Loki is, after all, a god of chaos and mischief.

Oh yeah, a bored Tony is probably even worse than a bored Loki. Loki tends to sulk, I think, while Tony tends to f**k things up, either metaphorically or literally.

FILL: Tony's New Assistant, part 3, Loki's POV
Loki is a god of chaos. Of chaos and lies and trickery.

It is insult added to injury, then, to discover that Odin lied and tricked Loki himself into believing himself one of the Asgard when he was truly one of the Jotunn. Loki should have known. He should have recognized the lies, been instigator rather than target of the trickery.

The fact that he was victim rather than perpetrator just rubs in the fact that Loki is not a god after all, but one of the despised frost giants.

To fall to Midgard of all places is further salt in the wound.

Here he is powerful, here he could conquer and rule, here on this miserable scrap of dirt he would be able to convince the pitiful creatures to see him as a god because in comparison to their weak forms he would be. What point is there in proving himself over those too lowly to matter anyway?

He spends his first month on Midgard wandering around one of their larger cities making half-hearted efforts at mischief in an attempt to amuse himself and annotating all of the so-called “physics books” in their public library with pointed comments about the ways they are wrong.

He doesn’t even use magic, just slight-of-hand and well-chosen words. He doesn’t expect anyone to be able to notice, regardless, but somehow Tony Stark does.

Stark is… impressive. For a human.

Stark is arrogant and intelligent and tricky and Loki can practically smell the chaos that emanates from him like a perfume. He’s also Ironman, Loki recalls, one of the more powerful of the individual humans, likely capable of fighting on a level with some of the Asgardian warriors.

And that is what gives Loki the idea for what to do now.

Here on this pitiful planet with such weaklings that Thor had treated the whole planet’s population as damsels in need of rescue, Loki would build strength. If they were so weak that Loki was embarrassed to be on their planet, then he would change that. By the time Odin managed to re-build the bifrost, by the time Heimdall managed to peer through Loki’s veils, the humans here would be a great deal stronger than they had ever hoped to be. The humans might become allies or might become enemies to the Asgard, but either way Loki would ensure that, when the ways next opened, they, and he, would be respected.
