Rec notes: This is one that could have stood to be longer. As it is, it clocks in at just under 5,000 words, and every one of them is put to use. Loki, known as the cowardly younger brother seems to be the only one in all of Asgard with the thought to actually do something about Thor being poisoned, rather than sit around and hope. He goes to Muspelheim to get the antidote from Surtur, and while there learns that Odin does not consider him a son. Still, he continues his quest, gets the antidote, and returns to Asgard. There are some pieces I would have loved to see, but which were completely glossed over. We get brilliant detail of Muspelheim, but very little of Loki’s trip to Niflheim. But while it does leave you wanting, it is also the first in a series, so there is at least more to follow.
