The Avengers: Security Cameras And DecisionsLoki was sitting in his 'special' cell on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s heli-carrier. He was recently defeated by The Avengers. He was disappointed, but was extremely annoyed with what they had to do to him. They put him in hand restraints and attached a muzzle on his mouth. Loki thought the gag was a little much. I mean, what did they think he was going to do? Talk them to death?
'This is ridiculous,' thought Loki. He leaned his head back onto the transparent cell and sighed into the gag.
Loki decided to lay down and possibly get some shut eye before The Avengers sent him off. He laid on his side and brought his arms as far as he could up to his face. This wasn't the best looking position, but it was the most comfortable Loki could manage. He closed his eyes and hoped to drift off to sleep.
Thor was walking through the halls; he got random congratulations from S.H.I.E.L.D. agents while he walked. He smiled and thanked them, but he had something other than celebration on his mind...
Thor/The Avengers: Good-For-Nothing Gab"How much longer, brother?"
"Uh... Another two to three months."
"Ohhh, dear Odin! I don't think I can do it, Thor."
"You've been doing great for a whole ten months..."
"It's been that long?"
"Hmph, feels longer."
"I know. Just look on the bright side--"
"Oh, don't give me that 'bright side' nonsense! There is no bright side."
"Really? The bright side isn't finally being freed of your imprisonment in Asgard? Well, more specifically the castle in Asgard. The bright side isn't maybe getting revenge on The Avengers?"
"You're not supposed to put bad notions in my head, Thor. That's what I'm here to get rid of."
"You can't dream?"
"When did you become so sinister?"
Thor laughed. He was talking with Loki in Loki's room. Obviously, Loki's trial went well. He wasn't banished for eternity... But he was punished. He had to stay locked up in the Asgardian castle for a year or more, with a set of rules. Thor was allowed to visit Loki once every day for a period of up t
The Avengers: A Friendly Conversation - Part 1"And what exactly are you doing?"
"To see if we can get any positive matches as to where the Tesseract is."
"Oh... So, shouldn't you be doing something productive in the meantime?"
"Relax, Cap. Let Banner chill. He's been working hard."
"Sorry. I'm just kinda antsy today."
"It's okay, Steve. We're all under a lot of pressure."
"Does anyone know where Goldie Locks is?"
Steve and Bruce both chortled under their breath. Tony had the best jokes for the worst times.
"He's supposed to be in the heli-carrier. Other than that, I have no idea," Steve answered. Bruce was staring at the computer screen, biting his lower lip.
"So, Banner. About this 'other guy'....."
"I'd rather not talk about him."
"Okay.... Any progress on the magic cube, then?"
"No. Nothing yet."
"How do you stay calm?"
"Tony...." Steve warned.
"It's a secret."
"Well, can you share it?"
"Alright," Tony said. He grabbed a pointy metal object and went over to Bruce, who was caref
The Avengers: Tickling, Toads, And Trickery"Stop! Leave me alone!" Loki ran up a flight of stairs, but tripped on one step. He quickly regained his footing and ran through the heli-carrier. Following him were Thor and Tony. Bruce, Steve, and Clint were also following Loki, but they weren't in hot pursuit of him.
Loki turned abruptly into an empty healing room. He shut and locked the door behind him. About five seconds later, Tony was seen running into the closed door. Loki was panting, trying to catch his breath after running from The Avengers.
"Open the door, Reindeer Games," came Tony's voice from the other side of the door.
"A-Absolutely not," Loki replied breathlessly. He sat on the cot in the tiny medical room.
Tony turned around and looked at Thor.
"Wanna give it a try?"
Thor walked to the door and spoke loudly, "Brother, please come out. We promise not to hurt you."
"That's what you said last time."
"And did we hurt you?"
"You humiliated me. And I will not stand for it," Loki crossed his ar
The Avengers: A Friendly Conversation - Part 2Bruce was still in the lab. It was getting late, as he could tell by the darkness outside. He also noticed that there was a storm occurring. Bruce wondered what from because it was perfect weather earlier today. He began getting nervous, waiting for his teammates. Tony, Steve, and Thor had been gone for a while. He had no one to talk to because Natasha and Coulson went with them. Bruce's work amount was quickly depleting as the time passed.
"Come on, come on, come on... Shit!" Bruce was frustrated with his computer. It finally shut down on him. He removed his glasses and stood back from the computer. He sighed and rubbed his eyes. Bruce stood back for another minute before he put his glasses back on, and then went on to another project.
While Bruce was looking for some papers on a desk, he knocked over something. Whatever it was made a clinking noise as it hit the floor. He groaned and bent down to pick it up. Bruce smiled when he held what had fallen in his hands. It was t
