Common Tropes & Themes

  • Odin's A+ parenting: It usually involves Loki being overlooked/neglected/mistreated as a child, while Thor is loved by all, though sometimes his bad parenting affects both boys, even if differently.
  • Jotun!Loki: Where Loki was not rescued by Odin and was raised in Jotunheim as a prince of the realm. Some tropes usually associated with this one are:
    • Arranged Marriage: Thor and Loki have to marry, more or less willingly, to secure the peace between their realms. Sometimes, the marriage is only a trick by Laufey to destroy Asgard, that's foiled by Loki's love for Thor. It usually involves depicting the Jotun as an one-gender race, so Loki can carry Thor's children.
    • War prize: Usually, it involves Thor getting Loki as war prize after a war between Asgard and Jotunheim, though sometimes is the opposite.
    • Slavefic: Loki as Thor's thrall is the most usual version, though a few fics exist that depict Thor as Loki's slave.
  • MPREG and kidfic: Usually with Loki as carrier, either due to him being a Jotun or by the way of magic.
  • Redemption fics: Usually set after one of the movies, in those fics Loki redeems himself, at least to some extent, and starts (or restarts) a relationship with Thor. It may involve prison or punishment for Loki, or the revelation that he was tortured or threatened by Thanos.
  • Alpha/Beta/Omega: Usually with Thor as Alpha and Loki as Omega, though the opposite has also been featured.
  • All Human AU
  • Sometimes, a third brother named Baldr is mentioned. He is their younger brother in Norse Mythology.
  • Threesome: usually involving other Asgardians or members of The Avengers
