Taming the flame: Chapter 2In which Loki fixes Bifrost, gets banished to Midguard and tastes pudding for the first time.
A week had elapsed since Loki had been confined to his room.
He is trying to intimidate me and unsettle my nerves by making me wait long and imagine the horrors he can do to me, but I won't let him. I can withstand any punishment he gives me, Loki thought with a fierce determination to stay brave.
The truth was that Loki was feeling tense and trying to convince himself that everything was going to be alright, but after a week of anticipation, boredom and deep thinking Loki was tearing his mind to shreds.
A single tear slid down his cheek as if his bravery was draining from his soul.
Loki gritted his teeth and frowned and regained his courage.
Then Loki heard a knock on the door.
"Enter." Loki said with a non committal voice.
A palace guard opened the door and announced.
"Prince Loki, King Odin requests your presence in the audience hall. Please follow me."
Loki said nothing and followed the pa
Taming the flame: Chapter 1After a thundering crack and a burst of bright coloured energy, Loki and Thor left Midguard with the Teseract cube, and they arrived at Asgard.
Loki had lost all his former glory and was reduced to being a prisoner. His hands were shackled with restraints, his mouth was covered with a muzzle.
Thor was by his side, to prevent him from escaping.
They went to the healers to fix some minor bruises, and stitch small opened wounds. In Loki's case he was given herbs to numb the pain from the devastating blows that the Hulk had inflicted on him. Thor's wound inflicted by Loki's dagger was stitched.
After they had been well tended to, the brothers walked towards Odin's palace.
The guards at the door opened the door for them.
Before they walked in Thor gave one of the guards the Teseract cube and told him to put it in the treasure room. The guard nodded once and walked in with Thor and Loki towards the treasure room while the brothers entered the palace into the audience hall.
TPBOM: Dinner surpriseOn their way to the Galapagos Islands to drop Charles Darwin off, the pirates were getting bored.
Bickering and fighting no longer filled their days as much and the pirates were looking for something fun and new to do.
The pirates had decided to gather together on the deck to brainstorm some ideas. Some of them where looking at clouds, leaning against the mast, sitting down, looking out to sea with their chins cupped in their hands. In a nutshell they were bored, very very bored. Then they began to discuss ideas on what to do.
"We could make bouncy castles out of jellyfish again." The Albino Pirate suggested.
"No, their guts spill everywhere." The Pirate with Gout replied.
"We could ride sea turtles." The Pirate Who Likes Sunsets and Kittens added.
"No they're too slow." The Pirate with a Hook where his Hand should Be argued
"Besides there aren't any sea turtles around here." The surprisingly curvaceous pirate corrected.
While they were arguing, Charles Darwin walked up to the deck on
TPBOM: ConcussionAfter their adventure on Queen Victoria's flagship QV1, the pirates, Mr. Bobo and Charles Darwin make their way towards the Galapagos Islands.
Unfortunately for Charles the adventure had been a very harrowing one. The multiple hits to his head had left him concussed.
Before sailing off to the Islands, Charles had jumped into the sea to wash off the tar and feathers.
Having cleaned himself, Charles came aboard 'the boat' and the ship set off.
Unbeknownst to Charles, bathing in the sea had caused some sea weed to stick to his head.
The concussion had also left Charles confused, with blurred vision and a staggering gait.
Evening soon approached and as Charles staggered around looking for his quarters and groaning, the albino pirate had picked the wrong moment to step out of the galley and get some fresh air.
If the pirate crew were animals the Pirate Captain would have been a brave lion and the albino pirate would have been a timid kitten.
One of the pirates' previous adventures had been
TPBOM: Healing woundsAs the pirate's ship (better known as 'the boat' to the crew) sailed towards London during the evening, yelps of pain could be heard from the Pirate Captain's cabin.
"Ouch oooh ahhh careful with that, Number two." The Pirate Captain winced in pain as the pirate with a scarf applied bandages to his bruised arms, legs, chest and back.
"I'm sorry Captain, but you should have been more careful when you swung across and landed on the ship. May I remind you that you crashed back first into the hatch and broke the wood." The pirate with a scarf reminded the Captain.
"I was only trying to make an impression on the crew, to show that this boarding would be successful this time. I wanted to show them that nothing could stop me from getting my booty, not even pain." The pirate Captain protested.
"I know Captain, but you are not invincible. All we want is you in one piece." The pirate with a scarf reminded the Captain.
The pirate Captain slowly raised one of his eyebrows in a questi
Of Snake Charmers and TreesThere are mathematicians
that calculate the gravitational
pull that tethers us to one another,
teasing sense out of the fabric
of Time and Space like
wizened snake charmers.
I thought them so horribly
unromantic, searching for
logic amidst wildflowers-
reasoning being reason enough
to put one foot in front
of the other each day.
True beauty lay printed
on petals and pages,
where I delved for pearls;
the patterns in the pathos
intriguing me into each
rising of the sun.
I do not remember when
it occurred to me that
without fractals there would
be no trees, nor without love
would people have any reason
to calculate the distances that
separate them from their muses.
