graphic making is all fun and games until you have to decide which font to use
She walks out of home room and opens her locker. That they’re so close together is convenient for her, but not for him. Out the corner of his eye, Loki sees her exchange one stack of books for another. Where is that girl’s bookbag, he wonders. She’s so small, even without those books weighing her down, but like a true warrior, she carries them, back straight and head held high.
Loki has known Jane Foster for many years now. They first met in grade one, when he pushed her into the mud on picture day because she wouldn’t stop talking about her new dress. Most of their encounters after that, from stealing her cookies at snack time, to sneaking a live frog into her backpack, had been much the same. Loki had never stopped and asked himself why Jane Foster was his favorite target. He used to think it was to get Thor’s goat, but he’d stopped crushing on the studious girl after Sif moved into town and never gave Jane a second glance again. He could only call it a force of habit. It helped that he could never get more than an in-school detention as punishment for his jokes. As the smartest kid in school and the son of a wealthy businessman, it would be in the school board’s best interest not to expel him.
Today was their first day of High School. In another four years, he would be off to the university of his choosing. The world was an open book for him to explore at his leisure. He didn’t even need this meager half-decade to know he had it all at his fingertips. Jane Foster, for all the intelligence and drive she possessed, would never have half the opportunities he would, simply by virtue of being born to a middle class family, left and an orphan, and raised by a family who could barely feed themselves, much less her.
This fact used to make up the bulk of his taunts, until Jane Foster learned to take them in stride. Now he’d have to come up with something else.
Loki had been thinking about that off and on all summer, in between avoiding Thor’s room while he and Sif were eating each other’s faces off, and having evening tea with his mother over a warm fireplace.
This is the first time Loki has seen Jane Foster since the frog incident. All thoughts of how he will push her down this year are gone, and for the life of him, he doesn’t know why.
It’s not because she looks different. She’s prettier that she was for sure, on the cusp of womanhood and showing it in all the right places. Her hair is more tame than it’s ever been. A few inches less and a little mousse has done wonders for her. She may have some makeup on as well, but he could be wrong. She’s never been the type to begin with.
Other than that, she hasn’t changed much. She has the same frumpy plaid and faded jeans. Her new backpack is a carbon copy of her old one, like she just shops at the same store every year and comes back with the same stuff, like she has no concept of variety.
She closes her locker on the sack and on the pile of books she’s brought with her- many of which he’d wager aren’t school related at all.
She turns around and stops dead in her tracks at the sight of him. Loki closes his fist around the strap of his bag.
She looks taller now too. Taller than him even!
No, wait, no she isn’t. She hasn’t grown an inch.
It’s just that look she’s given him, Loki is horrified to admit. It makes him feel five feet smaller.
"What do you want?”
She slices at him like a snake, her venom burning through his sharp tongue and rendering him incapable of a comeback.
"I… nothing," he says in the end.
Jane Foster shakes her head and moves past him. She never looks back, no matter how hard Loki starts after her. Her hair swishes and waves around her, it’s sheen hypnotizing him.
He smells something in the air.
Is it vanilla?
Did it come from her?
Loki can’t say for sure. He knows nothing except that he’s going to be thinking about this all day, and probably every day until graduation; the result of a terrible mistake ten years in the making.
Had to make a lokane wallpaper, “Dust to Dust” by Civil Wars was asking for it :)

"Let me in"
“Oh, you’re acting your thin disguise, All your perfectly delivered lines
They don’t fool me, You’ve been lonely, too long
Let me in the wall, You’ve built around
We can light a match, And burn it down
Let me hold your hand
And dance ‘round and ‘round the flames
In front of us, Dust to dust
The Sweet Science of Life
Through the workings of several mischievous Norns, Jane finds herself engaged to the wrong brother after Asgard’s battle with the Dark Elves. Along with finding out in the worst possible way that Loki is alive (and having too much fun masquerading as Odin), she gets dragged into a ride that has her rethinking everything she knows of the Trickster god.
To her horror and constant exasperation, he’s way more than she can handle on her own…but is everything that she desires and aspires to have.
It doesn’t take long for Thor to become yesterday’s fading memory.
(Un)fortunately for her, Loki isn’t one to go down without a fight, not after the accidental but binding engagement that will curtail all the mischief he intends to unleash on the realms.
A mortal will only hinder his plans, unless he manages to convince her that it is all done…in the name of science.
Summary: Worried for her son, Frigga casts a spell to find Loki’s soul mate. Unfortunately for Jane, the spell doesn’t go as planned and she is ripped away from her life and wakes up in the body of another person, on a planet that isn’t her own. Fate has a plan for bringing Loki and Jane together, but both are too stubborn to see it. A winding journey with plenty of trials and tribulations. (Lokane. Takes place pre-Thor films. AU)
Rating: T (May become M later)
Note: All He Has Left still has my top priority for being completed! This is just the first chapter, which I was inspired to finish tonight. The updates will be slower on this one. Hope you all enjoy, regardless! Let me know what you think if you want :)
oh man I would reblog your fabulous graphic but it’s just so much easier to right click, select ‘save file’, pick a folder, name the file, go to my dashboard, open a new photo post, click ‘upload’, find where I saved the file, select it, wait for it to load, tag it, and repost it gosh darn
Aesir!Jane with a hint of Lokane
the first half was actually done using my phone due to my not having time to draw at home. but I persevered! HAH!
