In 1923 Edwin Hubble discovered that there were other galaxies outside the Milky Way, participating in a transformation in American thought spurred on by modernization, war, and demographic shifts. Jane Foster, orphaned daughter of a leading academic couple, had by that point fought long and hard to be on the forefront of the changing astronomical world as other American women fought for the right to vote. Laws and university policies may change, but Jane finds human beings are slow to catch up. The grace and beauty she finds in human knowledge of the cosmos being turned upside down is not easy to grasp in her own life. Dragged out to a party by her friend Darcy, she meets Lawrence Durham, “Loki” to his friends, the new junior professor of mathematics from Cambridge. As glib and charming as the most obnoxious of the “bright young things,” he’s running from memories of the Great War and a life in England he’d rather forget.
guiz, lokane fanfics recommendation in need! ahjsafal
i’ve read like fallen star, the shift, to cleave the stars and they were all really good! but gawd i need more!!! has anyone read beneath? and if so, is it similar to any i’ve read?
thank you amigos
I have been following Beneath since the first chapter was posted. It’s more of a character development fic than a full blown Loki/Jane romance. I, personally, adore the hell out of it. But I wouldn’t go into it expecting lovey dovy hearts and all that jazz between Loki and Jane. It’s amazing none the less.
However, if you’re looking for more of a passion/tension between the two I would -hiiiiiighly- recommend Apotheosis by solain_rhyo. It’s up to five chapters so far, but it’s a-mazing! Infact it’s like a drug. I’ve been checking every day for an update and am at the point of pulling my hair out because I -need- more D: Lokane is certainly the cocaine of fandoms!
I’ve never heard of this fic called “Beneath”. Does anyone know the author or have a link to it? I would love to read a Loki and Jane friendship fic. Character development and exploration is always a plus in my book, as well. Please, pretty please?
Beneath by Ninepen can be found HERE.
I like the stars. It’s the illusion of permanence. They’re always flaring up and caving in and going out. But from here, I can pretend that things last. I can pretend that lives last longer than moments. Gods come, and gods go. Mortals flicker and flash and fade. Worlds don’t last; and stars and galaxies are transient, fleeting things that twinkle like fireflies and vanish into cold and dust. But I can pretend. - Neil Gaiman
She’ll never be his goddess, but Loki has another way of immortalizing Jane Foster. Read more.

Notes: For starryeyedjane, for the Lokane holiday fanwork exchange.
Aw, thank you! *hugs* Nah, you don’t sound creepy at all. If no one shared your enthusiasm for this ship then we wouldn’t have the fanfiction and fanart that we have right now. We’re not the biggest ship in the fandom, but I can tell you that we are growing. I’m really glad you enjoyed Fallen Star! It’s one of many stories in this fandom that I love to go back and reread. :)
