Every Time | MSL Loki & Thor on Sakaar

While Thor is the Grandmaster's prisoner, Loki comes to visit his brother in the gladiator pits of Sakaar.

Loki Silvertongue
"Come on, do you have to KEEP doing that EVERY time?"

Thor Thunderer Odinson
"Every. Time."



Loki Silvertongue
"I'm not sure which is worse: when you throw rocks at my face or my crotch." It depended on Thor's mood, which sometimes depended on what Loki had been up to.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"I have a points system too. It keeps it interesting." that point system also was highly dependent on his mood and reasoning for throwing things at Loki.



Loki Silvertongue
"Oh really? And which one is worth more points?" Loki was pretty sure he already knew the answer to that one and wondered if he'd ever get the image of a target painted over both places out of his mind.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"It might be shocking, but it's actually your nose. It's really hard to hit it on the tip. But your crotch is second highest." he admitted with a grin and a light shrug.



Loki Silvertongue
"The tip," Loki snorted, shaking his head. Thor's next throws missed because of it.

"Oh sorry. That was unfair of me." He started jumping in place.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"I'd call you a cheater." He picked up a couple bits of debris, using whatever was small and on the floor around him and threw them all at once at Loki once he started jumping.

"But I suppose I never really made rules to this. Anyway, would you rather I hit you on the nose or the dick to find out if you're real or not?"



Loki Silvertongue
Loki stopped jumping, looking offended. "Neither!"



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"Well if I could actually trust you to be physically here then maybe I wouldn't throw rocks at you." he huffed and pointed tossed one right through Loki's groin.



Loki Silvertongue
"Maybe if you didn't throw stuff at me, I might physically appear more often!" Loki tossed back with a snort.

"That includes both weapons and rocks." Nearly having his face smashed in by Mjolnir on several occasions made Loki wary.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"How about a compromise then?" he stood, releasing the pebble he had been about to toss at Loki and instead approaching the illusion of his brother.

"Instead of throwing things I can try to touch you?" he asked and reached a hand up to uselessly try and touch Loki's neck, his hand passing through the illusion.

"Unless you're being a shit and I'm throwing something at you because you deserve it." he chuckled.



Loki Silvertongue
Oh, this could be amusing. "Alright," Loki agreed readily. "Are you going to try to tackle me, or something simpler?" He couldn't help but grin at the memories of Thor falling for his tricks.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"No I'm going to grab your ass." Thor shot back with a roll of his eyes and a smirk.

"You know, I am getting better at reading you."



Loki Silvertongue
"Now you've made sure I'll NEVER show up!" Loki teased back, turning and waggling his arse in Thor's direction.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"You always turn up at some point. Usually to keep me from doing something foolish that would get myself killed." he looked at the other's waggling ass and couldn't completely cover up a look of sadness. He only hoped he masked the expression before Loki could notice.

"Reads loud and clear that you're an ass." he tried to tease as he moved over to lean back against the wall across from Loki.



Loki Silvertongue
"If anyone was going to kill you, it was going to be me," Loki tossed over his shoulder before turning to face his brother.

"Though you did try awfully hard sometimes, as I recall. Goading those warriors in Nornheim. Only a hundred you said, so they brought more."



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"You might kill me, but you'd miss me." He teased with a flash of a grin. It only grew thinking about the Norns. Ah, it was always fun getting in over his head. Or he supposed it was only fun because it had worked out in the end.

"Come now, that was a fun battle! We might have barely made it home, but we did make it home!"



Loki Silvertongue
"Only because I veiled our escape in smoke, as I recall," Loki huffed. He'd saved all their lives several times and never got his due credit for it.

"You always did have an odd definition of the word fun."



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"Yes, you're right about that." He agreed and sunk down to sit on the floor again and look up at the illusion of his brother.

"Do you ever regret it? It would have saved you a lot of trouble." He laughed, knowing the answer already.



Loki Silvertongue
"The only thing I regret right now is that I can't throw anything BACK at you," Loki replied with a crooked smirk. Thor might be trouble at times, but Loki had been more glad to see him than he ever thought possible.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"Well if all goes to plan I'll see you in person at some point." Not that Thor had a plan. He wasn't really a plan type of person. It was easier to act and go with what felt right. Something he was coming to see wasn't exactly the best idea. Perhaps he should actually come up with a plan. His expression had turned to one of contemplation.

"I really do hope I'll be able to see you in person again."



Loki Silvertongue
"Try not to get killed in the next few hours and I have a plan. There's this man here called The Grandmaster. He's in charge of the whole planet, and I've made friends with him." Loki looked over his shoulder, paranoid of an interruption before he was finished, or of someone overhearing him.

"Impress him in his battle games and you could join me at his side, then after awhile, say the Grandmaster had an accident..." Loki shrugged and gestured to his brother, then himself, then gave a thumbs up.

"Loki that could take too long! We need to get back home. Asgard needs us!" Thor frowned, already not liking this 'plan' of Loki's. It didn't surprise him to hear it from his brother's mouth, and perhaps if they didn't need to get home so urgently he might have gone along without question.

"We don't have time for an 'accident' to happen. Right now Hela is on Asgard doing Norns knows what to our home and our people." He held up a finger before Loki could protest to that.

"And they are your people Loki. The people who you grew up with, who you ruled. Despite you not looking after the rest of the nine, you did look out for them."



Loki Silvertongue
And I feel terrible about that, brother, truly I do, Loki assured Thor, but what hope is there against Hela if shes already reached Asgard? You heard what father said. He said she draws her power from Asgard and will be unstoppable.

Loki stepped forward his hands out. Our sister destroyed your hammer like it was made of glass. Returning to Asgard is certain death. Your odds are much better here.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"I would rather die trying to save Asgard than live being a coward living here. Don't you feel the same? Don't you want to help them?" He pleaded, looking up at Loki with disappointment at his reaction.

"We can't do nothing."



Loki Silvertongue
We cant just rush back on a suicide mission, either, Loki snipped back. Ive tried it before; its no fun.

He folded his arms, vexed that Thor had completely dismissed his idea without any thought. You really think that preserving the royal lineage of Asgard is cowardice? You dont even know if there is anyone left in Asgard to save, yet youd gladly give both our lives on a gamble. I dont like your odds.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"We won't know if there is anyone to save if we never go there!" He protested, on his feet again and facing off against the other.

"I can't stand the idea of thinking our people are there and waiting for us. Every day we don't show up is another day we're letting them down." His eyes watered, looking directly into Loki's eyes as he spoke.

"They are dying, Loki. And I'm here unable to do anything about it. I am failing them."



Loki Silvertongue
Im sure thats an unpleasant, novel feeling for you, Loki commented bitterly. He knew what that felt like, had for years.

Im trying to save your life in case you hadnt noticed.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"I have noticed, but how can I be happy with that? I wish it were so easy to simply agree with you, Loki." he admitted.

"I wish it was as easy as staying here and starting over, but it's wrong. And I know you know it's wrong. And I know you're better than running."



Loki Silvertongue
You always did have an over-inflated sense of my moral rectitude, brother, Loki laughed. He certainly wasnt above running if running meant they lived to fight again another day. Thor had always been resistant to retreat, even in the face of crushing odds. This was no different than it had ever been.

There is sometimes a fine line between bravery and stupidity. Were just debating where that line sits.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"Perhaps we're at a place where the two are touching." Thor said with a shrug of his shoulders.

"Either way, I could not stand to think I did nothing. Which I already feel I am doing while I'm trapped, in here. With nothing but other prisoners and an illusion that has no belief in what we can accomplish together."



Loki Silvertongue
You wont be doing nothing, Loki smiled finally. Youll be beating the Grandmasters champion. Thats how you gain your freedom. Youll end up by his side with me whether thats your ultimate goal or not. From there is where further moves will be made. Loki looked around the gladiator pits, distaste curling his lip.

Not from here.



Thor Thunderer Odinson
"Nothing will keep me from returning home." Thor said firmly.

"Just like nothing will stop me from trying to defeat Hela." he crossed his arms over his broad chest and smirked.

"The Grandmaster's champion doesn't stand a chance against me."



Loki Silvertongue
"I hope you're right, brother. I've placed a rather large wager on you." He offered Thor a final brief smile before turning.

"See you tonight," Loki said and vanished into the wall.

Thor picked up another piece off the ground, this time a mostly broken bottle of some sort and threw it after Loki's vanishing illusion. This time a little more playfully than he'd been tossing things earlier. He was surprised when out of the corner of his eye he spotted Korg trampling onto the scene and kicking at the spot where Loki had been.

"Piss off ghost!" he shouted, and then blinked in his own surprise to realize that Loki was now gone.

"He's freakin' gone." he turned to Thor, who's face split into a small grin and he chuckled.

"Never for long, my friend." he pat Korg on his rocky shoulder.

"Come, tell me more of what I should expect to come for me." he said to distract Korg from Loki's 'ghost'.

"You got it, New Doug!" Korg grinned.
