Laughing and Not Being Normal, by etymologyplayground “So,” the Valkyrie says, falling into step beside Thor on the way to the kitchen. At least, that’s where he’s headed.

Last week I recced the Pacific Rim time loop fic (it was grassy and wanted wear, by achillees), and *Andrea said she liked it, and I said me too, even though I think my favorite Pacific Rim fic is still the one where Chuck learns to knit and they all move to Canada, and *Andrea […]
