Loki backed away slowly until his back hit the wall. He swore at himself. It wasn't supposed to be like this. By now, he was supposed to have been the ruler of Midgard, all those weak mortals kneeling before him, the Avengers torn to shreds by his army.

Instead, he was backed into a corner, an arrow aimed at his eye. With the scepter firmly clutched in Romanoff's hands, he could do nothing but surrender.

Dragged back to Asgard like a criminal, or captured and tortured by Thanos. What a delightful choice I have here, Loki thought bitterly.

"Brother!" Thor bellowed, raising Mjolnir threateningly. "Surrender now. There is no way out."

Indeed. His body hurt like Hel, not surprisingly, considering what he'd gone through. He winced when his back touched the wall. Something was definitely broken. And the amount of magic he had was dangerously low. Any spell attempted now would have risky side-effects.
Loki felt like a rat backed into a corner by predators.

He didn't like the feeling.

Loki's fingers curled into an incantation behind his back. He knew the consequences of abusing his magic to this extent would be dire, but somehow he couldn't force himself to be dragged back, to face Odin's disappointment, to face Frigga's tears, to face the Asgardians' disgust once more.

He felt the last of his magic draining out of him as he thrust his hands outwards. The Avengers jumped back quickly as a familiar green glow gathered around Loki's palms and-


The glow faded. It hadn't worked. He'd wasted the last of his magic.

Suddenly a burst of fiery hot pain ran through Loki's body. He let out a cry as his legs buckled. All the Avengers jumped again. Loki writhed on the floor, clawing at his burning chest as the Avengers watched in horrified silence.  

"What the hell!" Clint yelped, his bow clattering to the broken tiles.

"He used too much magic," Thor hissed, leaping over to his thrashing brother, "His body is shutting down on itself! Get a healer!"

They didn't hesitate. As much as they hated Loki, no one actually wanted his death on their hands like this. Natasha tore out of the room with Clint to look for a doctor, and Tony shouted at Jarvis to call an ambulance or something.

The thrashing had stopped, and the room was silent but for Loki's panting. He was a noticeable shade paler and his fists were clenched so tight his nails drew blood. Then it began happening, something so strange the remaining Avengers did nothing but gape.


Natasha burst into the room, Clint and a medical team trailing behind.

"Did anything hap-" Natasha stopped abruptly.

"What-" Clint pushed past Natasha, taking in the scene before him, his grey eyes widening. "Sweet  mother of fuck!"

I should warn you, someone else has stolen this piece and it somehow got onto the main page: [link]
I'd report the deviation for being stolen, if I were you. There's a button for it just below the deviation statistics.

If you have already done so, my apologies.
