Loki Odinsdottir ↾ "Loki" ([personal profile] purposeful_glory) wrote2013-06-27 07:52 pm

the cuckoo's child, by invitation

It is obvious from the time Loki learns to walk that she is not going to be very good at it. Normal toddlers fall, and often; she does it more, and longer. She has been practicing at walking for years before she can cross a floor smoothly nine times of ten, even if she does not sprawl completely every time she missteps.

She winces when she trips, not so much out of embarrassment or because she's hurt herself, but because the reactions are never good.

Falling is not a princessly thing to do.

Her mother Odin, Queen of Asgard and famed through all the Nine Realms as a wise ruler fierce in battle, growls when she sees her daughter fall flat on her face for the hundredth time.

Her father Frigg, a gentle lord known for his exquisite manners and calm demeanour, sighs and retires to his chambers to begin weaving a new spell. It takes time and time to complete, and works slowly - Loki has grown a few inches by the time she would notice a change. But her bumps and scrapes are now not quite so painful, and she never again falls in such a way as to injure herself significantly.

Odin is unsatisfied. A princess of Asgard must be a fearsome warrior, and the only one who fears Loki is the floor.

Loki's older sister, golden-haired Thor of the loud voice and clomping feet, teases her incessantly for all the tripping. The teasing does not noticeably diminish when Loki begins carrying a scepter.

"...But it is funny," says Thor, puzzled.

Thor just blinks at her.

"Oh," says Thor. She frowns in thought.

"You don't," agrees Loki. "You have it much easier than me, you see? I'd much sooner not do anything to laugh at, only I can't."
