Here's the thing: a friend of mine recently watched "Thor", and while she wasn't too overwhelmed by the movie, she was a little intrigued by what I told her about Loki and Thor's dynamics in fandom (well, that and she is quite taken with Tom Hiddleston... go figure. *grins*) - and she said, if I had any good fic she would be interested. Which is great, because she has teased me for my recent passion for Avengers fic (we both originally hail from the Supernatural fandom) and this seems like the perfect opening to lure her into Marvel fandom (and show her what she's missing out on! *grins*). My problem, however, is: I don't read much Thor/Loki. The "Thor/Loki" tag on AO3 is no big help, because there is just so incredibly much out there, and we all know that summaries can be misleading and sometimes the most amazing stories are hidden behind an awkward, empty summary.
So, do you have any recs for good Thor/Loki "beginners" fics? Or rec lists? Fandom classics?
My friend loves her schmoop, but she likes it with a side of angst and drama, and also she isn't squeamish - as long as there is a happy ending (and maybe even marriage!)! Brothers-to-lovers, redemption fic, mpreg (she was most intrigued by the possibility of intersexed!Loki!), anything really.
Mega-bonus: If any of the Avengers are included somewhere! Maybe even as a side-pairing, just so she can have a glimpse at what the Avengers fandom has to offer!
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!!!
