Kat’s Raythe Reign Blog Takeover!! So… Thor x Loki in Valkyrie?

So, Raythe’s assistant here with a quick question.

She just posted Chapter 5 of Valkyrie, our latest serial. If you haven’t read it yet, it’s a modern Norse mythology epic with forbidden love between brothers.

Right now, the main pairing is immortal Valkyrie fighter Liam and his younger brother Cameron. However, in this latest chapter, Liam meets his godly relatives, including Thor. In the comments, many Members are now rooting for Thor x Loki.

(As stated by Raythe in the comments, this is not going to turn into Avengers fanfiction.  Loki, Thor, & co. are not the Avengers versions, though both Avengers and RR versions will have similarities because they are are rooted in the same old myths.)

What say you? Let us know by taking this quick poll.

PS – I know which answer I’m rooting for… but as part of the staff, my vote doesn’t count.

    To be blunt, I just haven’t gotten into this story… it has nothing to do with the incest … I simply haven’t found that it has caught my heart nor imagination. But that is the way it goes… I love most of everything else you have written. I just don’t find the main characters attractive.

    • Kazuto Walker October 29, 2015 at 7:58 pm #

      In “The Fell,” I not really that interested in the main pairing but, I love what goes between Jordan and Scott and wish that they had their own story. I would have dropped it long ago otherwise.

      • Topaz111111 October 29, 2015 at 8:09 pm #

        YES!!! If we could have stand alone stories, those would be great!

    • admin October 29, 2015 at 11:55 pm #

      I can’t win them all! Do you have any feelings about Thor x Loki?

      • Kazuto Walker October 30, 2015 at 2:25 am #

        I would love to see how you do Thor x Loki. Only problem I have with that paring in particular is that I know too many Thor’s and Loki’s. I end up picturing the wrong version at times. Like people also said, I think it would work best as a standalone store. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.

  2. Topaz111111 October 29, 2015 at 8:08 pm #

    PLEASE GOD NO!!!! IF SHE STARTS WRITING ABOUT THOR AND LOKI, VALKYRIE WILL TAKETOLONG TO FINISH AND ALL THE SNESMEXY SCENES WOULD GET PUSHED BACK!!!! PLEASE!!!! I BEG OF YOU!!!! HOLD THAT STORY OFF UNTIL THE SEQUEL!!!!! Or, if the fans desperately need for it, could you just make the chapters double the length so that we still get out full air time with Liam and Cam?! PLEASE?! PRETTY PLEASE?! WITH SUGAR ON TOP?!!!?? Not too mention, I seriously think that the whole Thor and Loki story should be a prequel instead of written into a sequel, like, a stand alone story prequel for Valkyrie. If pay to read that story alone.

    • Meeshafoxfire October 29, 2015 at 8:46 pm #

      Yes I agree

    • admin October 29, 2015 at 11:57 pm #

      Your response is cracking me up though it is a valid concern. I don’t know that there would be much Loki x Thor screen time in this serial but maybe more in an offshoot. I just wanted to know if people wanted the possibility of it.

    • jaded_imp November 2, 2015 at 10:41 pm #

      I love the idea of a Thor Loki spinoff as a prequel. Though I agree that it should wait until Valkyrie is finished.

  3. macaroon October 29, 2015 at 8:36 pm #

    Mmm… I wouldn’t be strongly against it (Raythe has delivered fantastic parallel couples in previous works – The Fell&co), but I’m reticent. Mostly because we don’t know who Raythe’s Loki is? Thor has been introduced, which is good, but we don’t know much about him either. Topaz111111 points to the fact that a second pairing would encroach on the LiamxCam goodness (though there’s a case to be made on that encroaching becoming VERY HAPPY indeed as we grow to love ThorxLoki too) and at this point of the story development, it does feel like that.

    Basically, it feels to me like you’ve inquired too soon about a ThorxLoki possibility? I’d personally need to see more of both of them to feel excited about it. But as always, I’ll keep on reading delighted and with an open mind.

    • admin October 29, 2015 at 11:59 pm #

      Again, another valid point. I’m not seeing Thor x Loki to be like a Jordan x Scott. The way this story is set up Thor is stuck in Asgard and Loki is …elsewhere. But I wanted to know if people wanted this between them even as back story.

  4. Mylillys October 29, 2015 at 11:51 pm #

    Yes!!!!!!!I love Loki he has always been a favorite! Give him some love!

    • admin October 30, 2015 at 12:00 am #

      I think you are going to like my version of him. Or I hope so. Grabbing more source material and making him well darker and stuff.

  5. Fiona hayes October 30, 2015 at 1:13 am #

    Well Thor and Loki would be good. But you know Loki is just trouble he likes to get his way. So having Loki around would make the two main characters take notice with all his trouble. Loki also might make a deal with the devil.

    • Raythe October 30, 2015 at 1:27 am #

      Loki is most definitely trouble and narcissistic. So you are way right …

  6. Tibstales October 30, 2015 at 2:16 am #

    First – like so many others – I ADORE Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, so mischievous so sexy! So on first thought a Loki x Thor sound absolutely drool worthy. However, again like so many others, I feel it will distract too much from the main couple and cause the story to more along slower.

    Take The Fell as an example. I’ve been a member for 3 years + and in my experience most of your stories run between 50-60 chapters. The Fell is currently at 67 and you’ve indicated there is still quite a bit to write before we get to a stopping point, While I love the Jordan/Scoot dynamic in the Erl King and their relationship is cute in The Fell, I don’t think it warrants the amount of attention it is getting.

    So saying that – I feel Valkyrie would be best served with having any additional romance be in the background laying a solid foundation for a sequel or spinoff.

    • admin October 30, 2015 at 12:26 pm #

      I hear you though some people would rather it be ALL Scott and Jordan. It really depends on who you like better. But in this case I’m not considering equal screen time more like having it be in the background and maybe doing something else for it or weaving in some aspects of it.

    • admin October 30, 2015 at 12:29 pm #

      Also, one other thing. This will NOT be Marvels Loki in any way, shape or form so if you like toms version you may or may not like mine. I don’t want people thinking that it would be the same. It won’t be.

  7. ddarkbloom October 30, 2015 at 6:26 am #

    It’s an interesting idea to be sure. It will definitely be something fun to explore. I just can’t help but think… it feels so soon to be jumping so far. We’re five chapters in and we haven’t even really been able to explore Liam and Cameron so to think about just throwing another relationship in the mix? It would give neither Liam and Cameron’s nor Loki and Thor’s relationships the attention they deserve. I feel like I wanna read about Liam and Cam right now – there’s no much there! Thor and Loki’s relationship could make a great spin-off or even a relationship that can be introduced in a sequel or something when Liam and Cam’s relationship is already… well, more established. Right now, however, it’s still new and I’m really invested in seeing how it’s going to play out. It’s hard enough waiting a month to see their progression!

    • admin October 30, 2015 at 12:27 pm #

      I wouldn’t worry about it overwhelming the main characters. The way the story is set up it couldn’t. But I think people will be interested in them as well.

  8. belllda October 30, 2015 at 8:58 am #

    I think the spin-off would be best! We would get enought of both LokixThor and CamxLiam pairing! 🙂

    • admin October 30, 2015 at 11:02 pm #

      Thank you for your thoughts!

  9. JaayV October 30, 2015 at 1:32 pm #

    Did someone say Thor/Loki? YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Good grief, I was hoping for some sooner or later. <3 I would LOVE to see a little of it in Valkyrie, maybe as a way to help Liam work out his feelings for his brother, but I don't think it would be a good idea to bring it in as a prominent feature in the story. There are so many new and interesting characters we haven't even had the opportunity to meet yet, and I think I want to find out what loves and woes Raythe has in store for them first. I think a Thor/Loki spin-off or sequel would be a better place to give both couples (Liam and Cam, and Thor and Loki) the chance to shine. But I want mention, maybe a scene or two with Thor/Loki goodness! Come on, now! You can't these me like this and not deliver the goods! XD

    So tl;dr short answer: Definitely want to see some of Thor/Loki in Valkyrie, but let's keep the main focus on Cam and Liam. 🙂

    • JaayV October 30, 2015 at 1:35 pm #

      *you can’t TEASE me like this

      lol typos, oh the woes of autocorrect

    • admin October 30, 2015 at 11:03 pm #

      I think your suggestion is EXACTLY what I plan to do. BTW Loki comes in in Chapter 6. We get to meet him and I cannot wait to see what people think!

      • JaayV October 31, 2015 at 7:27 am #

        Hell yeah! That’s the best news I’ve heard all day!!

        And thanks for the heads up~~ 😀 I’ll definitely be looking for Loki’s indomitable presence to appear. X3

  10. Akiraki October 30, 2015 at 4:29 pm #

    I wish we could pick two because I want to read about ThorXLoki in the story Valkyrie but I also want them to have a story all to themselves. Oh and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!~

  11. admin October 30, 2015 at 5:38 pm #

    I think based on the feedback I’m getting that I will have Valkyrie stay Cam X Liam but lay the groundwork of Loki X Thor for another story.

  12. admin October 30, 2015 at 11:04 pm #

    Those of you who say you’ve been too busy to read, GET YOUR BUTTS OVER TO RR AND READ! Trust me you’ll enjoy Valkyrie! Especially since Loki (my Loki) enters stage right …

  13. Alexi October 31, 2015 at 12:39 am #

    Pros: If their personalities are compatible, it’d be an interesting footnote to the story. Them being trapped in two separate worlds would obviously keep them from having scenes to themselves until whenever that aspect goes out of it.

    Cons: Um…am I the only one who is annoyed with all the LokiXThor shipping? I hated Marvel’s Thor, and every version of Loki is my favorite of the Norse mythos. Bad match for everyone who ships them. Not compatible in the least. XD Raythe’s version is definitely superior for Thor, but not sure he’d be a good match for any Loki, even Raythe’s, until I see her Loki in action.

    However, since Raythe seems to be leaning toward them having romantic history, a short story giving some of their background — NOT as part of the Valkyrie updates, so as not to distract from the current storyline — would be the best route to satisfy those who adore the idea of the pairing (in the short run). If it goes well, a spinoff series (think Ghost Half and Sanctuary) would work…AFTER Valkyrie is complete.

  14. Jack October 31, 2015 at 3:53 pm #

    Sorry Raythe, but I vote NO. I like incest, but I’m not into Thor x Loki pairings AT ALL. They are sacred to me. I like their dynamic as brothers only.

  15. Miate November 7, 2015 at 5:00 am #

    I LOVE ThorxLoki paring. But it should be done after Valkyrie is done and if you do, do it then either do a spin off/prequel/short story kind of thing. The reason is that I think if you do it during Valkyrie it’ll take away from LaimxCam and I really love them. So maybe mention it though out the story like you’ve done already, maybe one sex scene but definitely do ThorxLoki as a spin off. PLEASE and THANK YOU!

    • admin November 7, 2015 at 5:20 am #

      That seems to be the general consensus so I believe that will be what I do!
