Gabriel Novak and Simon Tam were friends through their families, and their school. Both of their siblings, Castiel and River, went to an advanced academy when they were fourteen. When they found out that there was something wrong, they worked together for two years to get their siblings out again. They finally managed it. So Gabriel and Simon boarded Serenity at Persephone, and ran away.
They ended up dealing with an angry captain, coldhearted Alliance, and savage Reavers. Not to mention everything in between. But at least they're still alive, right?
*Rated M because of implied torture with the Alliance academy thing and lots of language.
Years before the events of Thor and Avengers, Loki is working as a spymaster for his father the King. Or at least... that's what he thinks he's doing.

Loki is her consolation prize.
He is the last thing she expects when her husband returns from his wars, reeking of blood and unwashed leather, but the paternal instinct can soften even the most battle-hardened warrior. As he stands before her, clasping the Jotun-blue baby in his arms, the mighty All-Father looks as anxious as a mother cat trying to nurse a duckling.
Frigga puts out her hands, accepts him for what he is: a replacement for the son Odin has claimed as his own. A prize, looted from the battlefield by the All-Father himself.
She looks down at the squalling, alien child, already made fretful by the heat of the room, and thinks: yes. This one will be mine.
- Part 1 of War Is The Father
When Loki turns up demanding Thor's help on a quest to retrieve the All-Mother from Valhalla, Thor isn't about to say no. But that doesn't mean he's forgotten anything, and what better time than a road trip through the backwaters of the universe for trying to talk things out?
INFINITY WAR SPOILERS BEYOND. EVEN IN THIS SUMMARY. DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE. Thor had to watch Loki die. Again. But Loki's always come back before, so this time isn't any different. Right?
- Part 1 of Hidden Infinity
Odin changes his plans for an eight-year-old Loki, fostering him out to Heimdall.
The consequences of shattering one family and creating a new one may be greater than he expects.
