FIC REC: Despite Himself

Author: errantcomment
Summary: Loki runs a bookshop, because he likes books. Unfortunately, he only found out he didn’t like people once he’d had the grand opening. Now he spends a lot of time sulking, talking to his cat, not talking to his housemate, and sulking. Then one day, the shop bell rings and despite himself, it all changes.

Notting Hill/Avengers/Thor fusion. Mundane AU in which Steve is still a big dude but mostly he’s an architect, Natasha is a security consultant, and Thor is a Viking accountant.
Word count: 50k
Characters/pairings: Loki/Darcy, Steve Rogeres, Natasha Romanoff, Tony Stark, Clint Barton, Bruce Banner, Thor
Rating: Mature
Warnings: None

Rec notes: I have a thing for Richard Curtis and Hugh Grant, so a Notting Hill Tasertricks AU amused me greatly. Loki is a bit more Bernard Black (though, this fic does feature a cameo by Black, in reference to Moran’s role in the film) than Hugh Grant, with a complete misanthropic view of everything. His assistant Bruce has some amazing anger management issues, and only seems to keep his job because he’s useful in scaring away shoplifters. I really enjoy Tony in this as well, and Steve/Tasha as the secondary couple makes me want fic just about them in this universe.

Best of all, I think, is the side thread with Thor and Loki, and how the author kept the tension between Loki and the rest of his family without the whole genocide thing getting in the way. Instead, he just fucked off like a child and refuses to face his problems like an adult, which does feel like a rather Loki-ish way to handle problems.

It also has the kind of ending I love. Not a happily ever after, and not perfect. But satisfying. Everything feels tied up at the end, but it’s more of a slightly mangled knot than a neat little bow, which makes it feel a bit more real to me.
