Sometimes I just intend to do a “here’s some awesome fic that’s been posted lately”, especially when I’m craving post-Thor 2 fics, but instead a different theme emerges. I didn’t set out to collect together a bunch of fics with a strong focus on Thor’s characterization (which is not an exclusion of the other characters getting focus, just that there’s more Thor focus in these fics than even I usually have), but, well. I’m hardly complaining.
There’s also a lot of feels and porn to go with them, but mostly this is a “Holy shit, you guys need to read everything on this list, STAT.” recs list! Especially the first three fics, YOU NEED TO READ THEM AND THEN COME TALK TO ME ABOUT FEELINGS, seriously. Do it. Do it. NOW.

"My crimes are no greater than Odin’s,” Loki says, and the flippant tone in his voice makes Thor’s nostrils flare. “Everything I did, I did for Asgard, for you-" "You did it for Loki," Thor snarls, jostling Loki against the shelf, sending old trophies clattering across the floor. "Why did you even bother coming back? You could have left and never looked back. There is nothing for you here."

What isn’t typical is how Loki bears the brunt of Frigg’s harsh scolding on the importance of bundling up properly and how he should be more considerate of his health. Sif and Thor barely receive clucks though they’re both huddled and shivering, soaked to the bone but grinning besides. He isn’t even cold.
