I didn’t like having Frigga “fridged” in “Thor: The Dark World”, so decided to do a fixit fic.

As soon as the deleted scene was released last year from “Thor: The Dark World” showing Loki fantasizing himself to be Asgard’s King, I wanted to write a follow up to that scene. So did a lot of other people, and a whole bunch of uber-angsty stories showed up on AO3 in short order. I couldn’t think of anything that hadn’t already been done, so tabled the idea.

And then I came up with this idea. I love the idea of “mama bear” Frigga and wanted to write a “Frigga Lives” fic. So why not combine the two?

Aside from the “Loki’s coronation” deleted scene I was also inspired by the deleted scene from “Thor” in which Frigga and Odin argue about Thor’s banishment, and the deleted scene from TDW in which Frigga and Thor discuss the reasons why she taught Loki sorcery, as well as the TDW tie-in comic book which shows Frigga had a vision of Loki some time after he fell from the Bifrost. Additionally, Frigga’s teleportation spell is based very loosely on Loki’s teleportation spell in “The Young Avengers”.

Gotta say, I've just gotten the DUMBEST comment I've ever received on a story

Gotta say, I've just gotten the DUMBEST comment I've ever received on a story:

"Oh shit its a thorki"

Uh, yeah. That's why I put "Loki/Thor" in the Relationship field.

Reminds me awhile back. I read a story with the AO3 Archive warning "major character death". I also read the comments to the story, and one reader went on a RANT about "HOW DARE YOU NOT WARN FOR THIS?!?" The author responded, "Um, it's right there in BOLD under the Archive Warning: Major Character Death." The reader replied, "Oh. I never read those. I expected you to warn for this in the tags."

Yeesh.
