When Negotiations Fail

Who: Wan Shi Tong, Loki, Thor, the negotiators.
What: The Library Issue!
When: May the 4th (be with you)
Where: The School and the library for the negotiators.
Summary: While those who are attempting to come to a solution for the library problem meet, Wan Shi Tong goes over to the school to take matters into his own claws.
Rating: PG-13 at the most I would think.

It's evening, and while those who are attempting to find a solution are meeting, Wan Shi Tong only listened for a short time before eventually slipping away in silence. He has been more than patient. It's been over a week now and this empty library was threatening to drive him mad. As far as he is concerned, the negotiations have failed. He will wait no longer. 

Leaving the library, the great owl spreads his wings and lifts into the air. Flying in silent stealth towards the school.

[Loki has been at the school often these days. It's a way to avoid awkward conversations with any number of people, and it's something he can focus on other than the strange lives he somehow lived in the weeks before. He just simply does not want to deal with any of it.

And now, he's finding Thor's company strangely enjoyable again. Because he cannot shake the feeling that family is important, and he knows how he has missed his brother.

It is time for their afternoon conversation about the comings and goings in the library, and if Thor thinks any fool has yet again been taking books back to the owl. Loki will have to make another little trip to the library again.]


Brother. I brought you a coffee.

[Hammer in hand he takes a slow walk of the courtyard, keeping pace with some epic or poem or another that rattles through his mind as he walks. He completes a lap and turns about, walking in the other direction until he does find himself in his brother's company.

He's come to look forward to them. Having something with which to bond over has helped the strangeness after the most recent shift ease- and has given them that which they had lost with Odin's meddling. If anything they are better than they were. Different, but better.]


My thanks, Loki. [He grins wide and easy, accepting the cup delicately so it would not slosh.] There has been little business today.

[Loki eyes Wan Shi Tong, then turns to Thor and bows to him, making a sweeping gesture with his hands. Plainly stating, This one's yours, brother.

But he has already replaced himself with an illusion, the moment he saw movement in the sky. Thor knows how this will work; Loki shall not strike until the fight has been joined. And then he will strike in earnest.

The illusion left to hold his place, Loki invisibly teleports onto the edge of the roof. While he won't do anything violent until a blow has been struck, there are still magics he can do to aid Thor and protect the library.]

[He does not expect his brother to linger ere the owl lands. Thor, himself, merely rests a hand upon the haft of Mjolnir and looks up to the creature that has been the source for so much trouble over the past few days. Eyes faintly narrowed, shoulders loose and easy as though the creature is of no concern to him at all.

For truly, come the day's end, he is not terribly concerned.]


I accept your surrender.

[Oh no. That won't do at all. Loki casts a spell, to bind the roof back together and pull back against the force of Wan Shi Tong lifting it. He remains still on his vantage, still invisible, and simply focuses on holding the roof in place and not allowing the damage to become any worse.

Hopefully.]

Who are you to speak of arrogance? How can you claim to love the knowledge written by those for whom you only feel contempt?

[Mjolnir all but sings as he takes it in hand, the wind ringing with a familiar resonance. He lets it fall, leather slipping against his palm till he holds the loop at the end of it's haft and does let it start to spin, low and lazy.]

No more than you have, Owl.

[Lazy becomes less so, picking up in pitch as the winds about him do twist and increase in speed. A little whirlwind all his own that he does flick in the Owl's direction, winds twisting and knotting like so much thread- the previously clear skies above roil with darkened clouds.

Thunder rumbles.]

[Loki remains hidden and throws all of his effort and strength into pulling the roof back down. It's a not inconsiderable amount of magic at his beck and call; with Thor dealing with the bird he can focus entirely on that.]

[personal profile] stopmjolnirtime 2014-05-05 05:00 pm (UTC)(link)
[As troubled as he is by the damage to the school he trusts his brother to manage what needs to be done by way of magic. Instead he flicks his wrist, Mjolnir humming as it whirls up another, stronger, gale of winds that circle not just his hammer, but Thor himself.

Tightly focused as to not trouble those beyond the schoolyard once more he lets the leashed tornado fly at the owl.]

[Loki isn't going to waste his energy; when he sees the whirlwind coming he simply drops the spell and hunkers down against the intact eve that he's standing on.

Before the wind has even entirely passed, he's cast a new spell, a shield over the giant hole in the roof. He doesn't want his brother raining on the books, and he most certainly doesn't want the owl getting in.

Have fun bouncing off of that, feather face. Or trying to sink your talons into something that does not physically exist.]
stopmjolnirtime: (The arms)

[personal profile] stopmjolnirtime 2014-05-05 05:39 pm (UTC)(link)
I say again- I accept your surrender.

[Last chances are supposed to be last, but tis no cause for unjust cruelty. The bird is grounded, the roof torn- and for that he does feel a twist of guilt. He had hoped to manage this without damaging the school. He makes a mental note to assist in it's repairs as he is indirectly responsible as he walks forward, eyeing the owl and the mass that had been the school's roof.]
complicatedliar: (waiting to strike)

[personal profile] complicatedliar 2014-05-05 06:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[Loki bows his head and grits his teeth and focuses on just holding his spell together in the face of repeated bashing. The owl is heavy, and that's a lot of kinetic energy to absorb and redirect.

It's something of a relief when Wan Shi Tong decides to go after Thor instead. Because that means things are about to get interesting indeed.

Loki rises to his feet and turns to watch, moving along the intact edge of the roof silently, lining up to attack. He summons a dagger to each hand. And he waits, readying to leap, but staying in place until blood is drawn.]
stopmjolnirtime: (I am not convinced.)

[personal profile] stopmjolnirtime 2014-05-05 06:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[Tis a large, furious beast indeed that barrels towards him with all the lethality and grace of a hawk mid swoop. Were he centuries younger and untested Thor may worry. As it stands he has fought larger, fiercer, faster, and come away alive if only for the weight of Mjolnir in his hand and the skills of his brother. While he may not be able to see him now he knows well how it is Loki looks to a fight, and knows he is covered.

That is enough for him.

Mjolnir singing, swinging in his hand he holds his ground until the last possible moment- and steps to the side, reaching out with his hammer as he twists to tap lightly at the Owl's back.

As though they were training or playing at fighting. As though this were a game.]
complicatedliar: (smirk)

[personal profile] complicatedliar 2014-05-05 07:05 pm (UTC)(link)
[Loki stays still and ready, though as an afterthought he takes out his journal and begins to privately record the proceedings, just in case such a record is needed later.

Amused, he uses a bit of magic to direct his voice to Thor's ears alone:]
Do let me know when you're done playing with your food, brother.
stopmjolnirtime: (Boyish Grin)

[personal profile] stopmjolnirtime 2014-05-05 07:56 pm (UTC)(link)
[Another lunge, another side step- the tail comes about too quick for him to avoid, but he can and does lift an arm to take the worst of the blow there while readying himself for the next pass.]

Perhaps he will tire of this soon enough.
complicatedliar: (Default)

[personal profile] complicatedliar 2014-05-05 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[Doot doot doot, still waiting. Good thing Loki is a patient god.]
stopmjolnirtime: (Standing on the edge)

[personal profile] stopmjolnirtime 2014-05-05 08:41 pm (UTC)(link)
[The angle of approach is different, but Thor's tactics remain roughly the same. He waits until the last possible moment and tumbles to the side, talons likely skittering a line across his armor as he rolls back to his feet, hammer at the ready to send a gust right along with the Owl.]
