title: which way i fly is hel (1/3)
fandom: thor
pairing/character(s): loki/sif
rating: r (for later parts, this one here is a friendly pg-13)
disclaimer: not mine.
word count: 3,800~
summary: There is no journey for love.

notes: After months of writing, re-writing, wine aplenty and numerous hours of Hans Zimmer soundtracks played for a touch of inspiration, finally, I’ve come close to finishing this travesty to a standard my perfectionist sensibilities can agree with. And seeing as it’s ridiculously long (for what was a one-shot), I’ve decided to post it in parts. Next one should, hopefully, be ready in the next few days.

I have no special regard for Satan; but, I can at least claim that I have no prejudice against him. It may even be that I lean a little his way, on account of his not having a fair show. All religions issue bibles against him, and say the most injurious things about him, but we never hear his side. We have none but the evidence for the prosecution, and yet we have rendered the verdict. To my mind, this is irregular. It is un-English, it is un-American; it is French.

The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers, and cities; but to know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us, and though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.

Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.
