Loki's face was fey and wild and illuminated with the pale light of his power; his lips moved slightly as he fought, on and on, perhaps with a death-song, making a lament for them, the only one that ever would rise to the boughs of Yggdrasil, for what little that mattered now.

I read these stories in part to figure out why these particular stories are the ones I want to read. You learn so much from reading a story aloud, and even more from editing it. I wish I had the time to record the story and then edit it twice through: I could do such a better job now with the timing of Loki's slow disintegration, the escalating madness. And yeah, this story drew me with the indulgent me-catnip of being pornographic, not so much about its sex, but about its emotions; mm, yes, come here and let Loki fill you up with his dripping hot angst. But also it is kidfic, and a particular kind of kidfic. It is a story, though this is not in the warnings, about facing the terror of losing your child to death.
And also the betrayal of losing your child to adulthood.
I hope it is even half as enjoyable to hear as it was to read. Thanks for listening.
