I want to write an alternative version of Romeo and Juliet where instead of being a little ponce and trying to work things out for himself, Romeo asks his smarter friends what to do about the whole thing and Benvolio and Mercutio come up with the world’s greatest plan:

Marriage of convenience between Juliet and Mercutio.

Think about it.

Juliet’s parents want her to marry into the Prince’s family. Mercutio is a good compromise between no marriage and Paris.

Mercutio probably won’t get his inheritance if he keeps being HELLA FUCKING GAY ALL OVER THE PLACE so a beard is only a benefit to him.

They would probably get along great rolling their eyes at how adorably stupid Romeo is.

Romeo and Benvolio could get a “bachelor pad” right next to Juliet and Mercutio’s house. Every night, Romeo and Mercutio high five as they hop the fence to go bang their one true love.

The second half of the play is just all of them trying to keep up the charade and being “THIS CLOSE” to getting caught all the time. But everything ends nicely because true love conquers all.

Everybody wins. Nobody dies.

Loki’s trick might very well be the only reason Thor survived his return to Asgard. Real Odin was ordering his soldiers to shoot him down. Do we really think real Odin was going to just nicely forgive Thor for disobeying him to his face, breaking his pet jotun out of his cage, and stealing one of the most advanced superweapons in the universe, all in order to show Odin up as a bad leader who can’t even defend his own realm properly?

He was banished just for insulting the old man a movie and a half ago, and now he’s conclusively proved to Odin that he’s no longer entirely the obedient drone he’d been programmed to be. He’ll team up with Loki rather than obey his father once he remembers to think on his own.

I mean, sure, Thor may have thought daddy will make everything ok again, but that doesn’t mean Thor’s right. He’s still learning how this critical thinking thing works, after all.

[And now I want fanfic where Loki really did die or is doing his own thing somewhere else in some way, real Odin is still running Asgard, and when Thor comes back for his little chat Odin is the same unforgiving, unthinking egotistical asshole he’s just been shown to be and is like ‘nope, son, you burned that bridge,’ and has him executed for treason. Just to have some goddamn consistency with the characters for once.]

And now I want to write that piece of fiction. Except I have no interest in writing a Thor-centric story. Maybe a frostiron story with a side of oh-by-the-way-Odin-sentences-Thor-to-something-nasty.

I would be here for a Loki-centric story with this. Meaning, a Loki-centric actually does go off and do his own thing (and not get bogged down in the angst and sad Loki, because I want to see him actually moving on and being free Loki who does what he wants, is bad ass, and lives by moral codes that we can believe of Loki [and not a set of moral codes that would more resemble a pet Loki.])
