Jane had slowly become what others would call a professional after SHIELD gave her funding for her research: hair was always in place, her reports were clear and precise and not in cursive. Everyone could read print, she would reply when someone remarked about her lack of a scientist’s scrawl. Even when running around with reports and her mind going a million miles an hour, her footsteps were sure and she never missed a word someone said, be it relevant to something she was working on or not.

Members of the scientific community were starting to take her more seriously, and those she admired most were starting to contact her. She nearly fainted when man in an odd sort of wheelchair called and said he when he tried some time before, he could not get a proper connection due to a destroyed cell tower, or find another way of contacting her when he attempted again shortly before the disaster at Manhattan.

Loki liked her best at home.

There, she would walk barefoot, her jeans rolled up so they didn’t get scuffed on the floor. She would stretch and yawn and let her hair get into her eyes.

She would slouch and slurp her coffee, after adding extra cream and sugar, steal an extra donut to munch on while she read a book or caught up on the most recent events of the scientific community. Sometimes, if work had dragged on late the evening before and she had a day off the next, she would sleep in until noon or so and not let go of him until he agreed to do the same, curled up under their sheets and mismatched blankets.

She did not need to impress any other scientists or prove to SHIELD that she was more than brilliant. At home, she could offer Tony Stark a drink and not need to worry about any glares, save for the ones he and Tony gave to each other from time to time (New York was still a touchy subject, five years after the fact). Thor could drop in and a million alarms would not go off, nor would people point their guns.

Windows would be opened, something might be cooking in the oven, Darcy would dance around with her I-pod and pull others into it, and a multitude of other small details.

At home, she could be herself around him… and so could he.

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...

Kasey Pinney: This book had me from the beginning. I never came across a part I didn't want to read or that didn't entertain me. The characters are well developed and the internal conversations fit the book well.

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

faithashley2000: This is such an amazing story, very well thought out and the plot is perfect. I recommend everyone to read this. Although the readers are most likely going to be teen girls, due to the cheesynees and romance

sunshinebennybear: First, I would like to address the elephant in the room. The author forgets her own character's names. She mixed up Liam for Jace, Harri for Maiya, and Freya for Clary. I love The Mortal Instruments as much as the next fangirl, but I find myself unforgiving about this. Throughout the story there ...

Elizabeth Krohn: I really enjoy the story but the Dursley's hate for Harry to just disappear is not very realistic and does seem to OC for me. Dudley, i can see changing due to the dementor incident but the other two ... not so much.For breeding purposes Luna and severus should have kids to have another Hogwarts...

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed. I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.
