Fic Title: A Kindness Repaid
Author: Potboy
Fandom: Thor, Captain America, Avengers
Universe: MCU
Main Characters and/or Pairings: Loki, Steve Rogers
Length: 23,992 words
Brief summary of fic: Steve rescues Loki from an unfortunate situation. Loki unexpectedly returns with an even more unexpected display of gratitude. Turns out, Steve doesn't even want it.

Reason for rec: I really like these two together. Steve's levelheadedness is a nice counter for Loki's antics, and I am a sucker for Loki redeeming himself while still being a complete asshole. My only gripe with this fic is the action that sets the whole thing off, and it relies on Thor raping Loki. It's a pretty major hit against it, and I admit it took me several times to try to get to this fic. When I finally managed to get past that, it wound up being rather lovely. Loki finds weird ways of displaying his gratitude, like stabbing Steve, and kidnapping him and making him an accessory in overthrowing a monarchy. But better still is that the Avengers don't automatically all suddenly decide that Loki deserves sympathy, and aren't too pleased to find out Steve's getting pally with the resident super villain. It's got a great build-up between the two, and the adventure in the second half is the part of the fic that's always stood out best for me.
