Fic Title: Just Let Me Go
Author: JaggedCliffs
Fandom: Thor
Universe: MCU
Main Characters and/or Pairings: Loki, Frigga, Thor
Length: 62,820 words
Brief summary of fic: Odin dies while in the Odinsleep, and with him also goes Loki's Æsir glamour. Naturally, all of Asgard assumes the worst and punishes Loki for a crime that was never committed.

Reason for rec: This fic was surprising, and went places I didn't expect it to go. When Odin dies and Loki's glamour fades at the worst possible moment, Loki reacts in the worst possible way and starts laughing. None of the Æsir are willing to listen to Frigga, and insist that Loki has been kidnapped and that Frigga is mad with grief, so both are locked up: Loki in Asgard's deepest dungeons to be tortured for information that doesn't exist, and Frigga in her chambers to be cured of an illness she does not have. Frigga is exceptionally tricksy in this, and manages to manipulate her way into bringing Thor home from his banishment and freeing Loki from his imprisonment. But even then, Loki's secret is still out, and even when he's released from the dungeons, battered and beaten within an inch of his life, the situation does not improve. If anything, it only gets worse. It's a little overwrought at times, but otherwise quite enjoyable.
