They grew up as brothers in the palace, often portrayed as Loki being in Thor's shadow. As Loki discovers the truth about his heritage, he gets angry and bitter and tries to kill Thor repeatedly. Thor constantly tries to get Loki back on the right track, and in the end they make peace with each other.
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

- Threesome: usually involving other Asgardians or members of The Avengers
