TITLE: Darkness, Flooded In Light
FANDOM: Thor (movie)
SUMMARY: “When much is taken, something is returned.” - Terry Pratchett, Nation
Loki falls. Injured and unable to access his magic, he must struggle to restore himself physically and mentally before the Bifrost is repaired and Asgard comes to find him. That alone would be difficult enough, but some of Asgard’s deepest secrets have followed him...

AUTHOR’S NOTE: The title comes from the song ‘Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise’ by the Avett Brothers, specifically from the lines “There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light / In the fine print they tell me what’s wrong and what’s right.”
WARNING: This story deals with the recovery from trauma and includes a few of the many ways people develop to deal with that, so it may be triggering or upsetting to read depending on your background. I have tried to be both sensitive and realistic, but if I’ve gotten anything wrong please
let me know. Also, Chapter 16 may be upsetting for parents.
