The King of Gingers


In the dark depths of Asgard, Loki Odinson sits, punished for his crimes on Midgard.

But new developments cause the wayward son of Odin to escape his prison and seek refuge across the Nine Realms in a land very much unlike any he has ever seen: Equestria.

While Loki makes a new life for himself in Equestria, Thor must once again gather together the Avengers and give chase to his escaped kin. But will the lies Loki feeds his newfound friends send the Elements of Harmony on a collision course with the protectors of Earth?

I have a feeling that this is going to be fairly popular - and rightfully so!

Good writing, a fun (if slightly odd) premise, and a nice chapter size. The Asgard scenes were readable, and the final segment introduced the pony aspect neatly. Well done!

Well. This has potential.

Not much else to say.


Your comment was read to me in the Doctor's voice inside my head. I'm sure you get that a lot. :pinkiesmile:

Oh Sweet Celestia. Loki's gonna manipulate the Mane Six!
Noooo! :flutterrage:
Who's better? Discord or Loki?
You decide fellow bronies!
This has been BronyCup, and Loki's a puny god.


I really like it! Please make moar! This is good!:pinkiehappy:

Well, considering Loki can be beaten by Hulk (as seen above), and it takes the Amplifier Artifact of Equestria (Elements of Harmony) to quell Discord, I'd say Loki is just as big of a threat (if not bigger) as Discord, but he can be beaten slightly more easily (if done right, mind you).

Quick Question: Isn't Loki's surname supposed to be 'Laufeyson'?


It can be either-or in my mind. He was born Lauffeyson, but was raised as Odinson, and since he is Asgardian, I am sure most everyone (including himself) would refer to him as Loki Odinson.

Also: all Marvel-based characters are pulled entirely from the Marvel Universe Movies, so expect all lore to be drawn almost primarily from the five movies (Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger) and the Avengers. I'll probably throw in some comic-based or mythology-based tidbits, if I know them. I used to be big into comics, but I stopped sometime in the 90's and haven't gotten back into them since.

Why did you do a cliffhanger? WHY?! :pinkiesad2::fluttercry::applecry::unsuresweetie::facehoof::raritycry::raritydespair:


Will you read the next chapter?

Now you know why. :pinkiehappy:

Oh I like this, only a couple of tiny problems I saw:

Only a visit to the prison itself, and the sight of the cage, bent and mangled, ice slowly melting from its rent bars, ** filly **convinced Odin that his adopted son had indeed escaped.

Jumping the gun slightly on pony-terminology.

Lips pulled taut and thin, Fluttershy slowly looked away from the Everfree Forest, toward the movement that had caused her heart to skip several beats and then slide **immidietely** into overdrive.

'Immediately' minor spell error

But that was really all.

You did a brilliant job with dialogue and characterization of a post-Avengers Thor and Loki, and I am eager to see where this is going. I was kinda hoping to see Loki Ponified (Hey, that's 'one' way to hide from Heimdall) but I suppose we don't always get what we want.

In the words of the Odinson.




That isn't pony-terminology; that was also a minor spelling mistake.


Filly = a female horse or pony under the age of four. In Equestria, any young pony female.
Easily mistakable as pony terminology.

*gives the spy a cookie, then gives another to the Medic to get the Ginger King back on his feet to write.*


Hahah. Yeah, it was supposed to read 'fully convinced'. I can't believe I not only made a spelling error, but one that also relates to one-half of this crossover.


MOAR PLEASE! I Shall give my favorites, likes and reads! :fluttercry::flutterrage::twilightangry2::raritycry::raritydespair::applecry:

Of Course Pinkie likes his hat, it's just exactly what she would do!:pinkiehappy:

I like it. Now how's that for a review?

I like it bring me another chapter.

I see your quarlem and raise you one mountain lion.

I'd be slightly surprised if they didn't suspect him of being a changeling, especially with Fluttershy having seen him be a different shape earlier. Not that Loki couldn't easily talk his way past that. :twilightsmile:

Careful Loki, you may end up neck deep in love and friendship... which will lead to... :trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftright:... well, we all know you have... preferences....


>That picture

My sides are moving on their own and rocketing into space.


It'll be coming shortly. I'm getting off a 6-day work week at Wal-Mart where I'm their resident cart mule. We do it all manually- no electric cart helper for us. so as you can guess, I'm fairly beat.

Fortunately, I'm off this coming Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so I hope to bang out a few chapters. Gonna be trying to keep them a bit shorter than this one (5,000-7,000 words) so as not to overwhelm people with verbage.

Oh: I'm not at all being rude, but I'm always looking to improve, so if you have something to say- good or bad- I'd really, REALLY love it if you'd be specific. It warms my heart to see 'I love this chapter, please more', but it tells me nothing about WHY you loved it so I can take that into consideration when I go forward.

I want to be good to my fans; I have so few, I must nurture and care for them with loving kindness. :pinkiesmile:

1372076 All I can say is you misspelled Fluttershy.
Hope things get better for your work at Wally-Mart!:pinkiehappy:

Loki's meeting Celestia?

This... thi- dis. Dis gonna be... guuuuuuuud!

"I have an army."
"We have a Hulk."
"My army is ponies."

Loki going to meet one of the goddess's of this world. How will this turn out? Will you be pairing Loki with anypony in this story?


I don't want to give anything way too early, but a romance MAY be possible. This IS Loki we're talking about.

However, I don't see him going for one of the Alicorns. He still needs to keep a low profile, after all, and getting in with one of them might lead to the temptation to do some political meddling.


If you do decide to do it i look forward to seeing who will end up with Loki. I'm hoping for either Twilight or Pinkie myself.

1393905 Nope. Take your pick from the three described with sweat glistening on them: Applejack, RD, and Big Mac. ~Ohhh Big Mac-kun...~ :eeyup:

Only TWO tickets?! Again?! Come on, Trollestia!!! :trollestia:
NIcely done so far, can't wait to see the Avengers' side of things!

What about Svaðilfari

Loki's lie is going to come back to bite him so hard... Well, there's hope for him yet. On another note, I can't wait to see what kind of fighting styles you use for the mane 6 - assuming that you're going to have them fighting? And I do hope you do. :twilightsheepish:

I wanna see Loki talk to Luna, with their ways of speaking, and I wanna see Tony argue with RD.:moustache:

So, Loki's conniving flank is worming his way into Equestria like a foul rotworm. The Mane Six are suspicious, but unaware of his nature.

Hmmm, Everypony... say it with me.



I know what you are thinking and please no, just no. Don't turn the avengers into ponies when they go to Equestria, that's just wrong so no.


Wasn't planning on it. It would be silly.

1405313 oh thank god. it was just how Loki was explaining them to the ponies who made me fear that they would be turned into ponies once they got there (sorry if i somehow spoiled anything).

I have an army.
We have a hulk.
I have the power of FRIENDSHIP!
We have lazers.
I have an army of ponies bent to my wiil, 2 goddess's on my side, and a magical rainbow of friendship and light.
Oh snap. :coolphoto::derpytongue2::pinkiehappy::rainbowdetermined2: Thats a :twistnerd:!

You derailed my thread on /mlp/. I'm going to have to read this now, aren't I?


Sorry. I wasn't trying to, but they started asking questions and...well, I like to talk about my stuff.
