My excitement levels just went through the roof. <3 *muffled screaming of delight*
(Or is that abject terror? I have a hard time telling the difference sometimes.)
OH MY. <3 You and Randi are trying to kill us, aren’t you? I don’t know if I can take that much awesomeness all at once. ;) [Did you say “Marvel characters gone medieval”?! *__*]
Indeed I did… Still not set on who exactly will be medieval-ized, but I think I’m staying in the MCU Avengers universe for this. Right now, I have Sir Stephen of York in my head… and his banner’s colors will be red, white and blue… so we’ll see. ;-)
This just keeps getting better and better!
(And nubriema, death by fiction is the best way to go!)
Knight Takes Queen
Forced to marry Thor, King of Asgard, for protection, Jane finds herself thrown headfirst into the fray of “virtuous” knights and needy courtiers of her husband’s court. Chief among them and nearly equal in power is Loki, the king’s bastard brother who may have been raised by a witch near a lake, but no one ever talks about that lest they find themselves at the end of one of Loki’s weapons.
Jane hates Loki and his acerbic wit almost instantly. Though she finds him alluringly attractive, she knows he is also conceited, domineering, and very, very, very dangerous. None of the other men of the court seem to like Loki, save for Thor who loves his brother unconditionally despite all evidence to the contrary. Knowing that a goodhearted, though brutish, man like Thor would not accept someone into his inner circle who was unworthy, Jane attempts to give Loki the benefit of the doubt.
She realizes too late her mistake in giving him an inch and allowing him to take a mile—and that she has lost her hatred along with her heart—placing herself in a precarious, potentially deadly situation between two exceedingly powerful men.
Notes: This is based on the Arthur/Guinevere/Lancelot legend, with a Marvel twist. I’ve borrowed pieces of various retellings and iterations of the legend, including Chrétien de Troyes, Geoffrey of Monmouth, the musical Camelot and others. Instead of setting it in England or another actual country or over an actual event in history, I’ve chosen to create Asgard as a fictional kingdom, much like Camelot was in the original legend. The knights of Thor’s “Round Table” will be recognizable Marvel characters that have gone medieval. Mostly it is all medieval fantasy, based in medieval fact, set in a medieval land. I hope you enjoy it!
This is everything I’ve ever needed in a Lokane Medieval AU, OMG!
(And I may or may not have been main-lining Regency dramas the last two days in prep for mine…)

I’m sorry, but JJ holding the rifle over his arm in the hunting scene in Austenland is far too erotic for my delicate sensitivities. Just saying.
ALL of JJ in Austenland is far too erotic for my delicate sensitivities.

Oh. My. GOD.
Seriously, though. I’m glad you like!

*flails* OMG. I need this right now. Oh, goodness… I guess I better get cracking. I already have the first chapter plotted out. No summary or title, though. ;-)
Ha! I haven’t yet started on the first chapter of mine, so I think we’re even.
(Here’s some medieval Tom for inspiration.)
