Summary: Post Avengers. To appease the Jötnar King for what Loki did to their realm, Odin punishes Loki by taking his magic, humiliating him before the court, and forcing Loki back into his Jötunn body – not realizing and not caring that his punishment might have fatal consequences. As Loki descends into despair and madness, tormented by vivid memories of his time in Thanos's hands, all appears hopeless. But Loki is not entirely without options - even if at first they are not apparent.

“I feared for her,” Thor started, then set his mouth shut.
And suddenly Loki saw – Thor’s protective arms around Mother; Thor’s glared defiance at Odin. He swallowed, and now his throat felt like it was filled with cracked glass. “He would have hurt Mother,” he whispered.
Thor went still. Then he let go of Loki’s shoulders and stepped back. Neither said a word. A moment passed. Another. Loki had thought he had seen every expression Thor’s face was capable of making, but he had never seen that expression on Thor’s face before – a gut-deep, mortally wounded betrayal. Not even in their confrontation on that Midgard mountain, nor on the Man of Iron’s Tower. Nor, he knew, was that expression directed at him.
