"Yep. We call it Earth, but, you know, everyone who called it Midgard is dead, makes me a bit more accommodating. It wouldn't surprise me if Quill kept postcards in his spaceship but I don't have pictures on me."

"...My Midgard isn't an Earth, Earths are a different thing. Also the people from my Midgard have soul animals and I don't see one on you and you haven't commented on my not having one although that might just mean you're very cosmopolitan."

Permalink

"Soul animals."

Permalink

"Yeah, like -" She illusions a fox into existence at her feet; it tilts its head. "This," says the fox.

Permalink

"I am pretty sure we don't have soul animals. Before I heard there was a maniac running around with a soul stone I would have said we didn't have souls. He's cute, though. Do souls do anything?"

Permalink

"They have various cultural features but don't confer powers." She dismisses the fox. "Anyway, I've been to Midgard, and I've been to Earth, so if this is some blend of the two maybe I can land on it some way or another - what year is it by Earth's calendar?"

Permalink

"What is up with that approximate time band - uh, anyway, I can probably land in space around it and then jump down based on the visual? I could come back and get you if you're not good to survive a moment in space?"

His armor starts flowing around his chest again, and then up his neck. "I should be fine if I'm not going to need to maneuver. 2018 a recurring theme in apocalypses?"

Permalink

"Not 2018 in particular but we've never found an Earth earlier than 1812 or later than 2160. Say when."

Permalink

"Assuming you can't do 'an hour ago', now's good."

"My time stone tolerates me but I don't want to try it with a strange one till I've at least verbally addressed the space stone." She takes his hand and boops them into space above Scandinavia on the second try, then down into a green patch of forest from there. "Uh, I can try for a better vantage point, I don't know how wireless you are while battle-damaged but this seems very high tech for a 2018 Earth -" She waves at his suit.

"F.R.I.D.A.Y. is Pepper alive?"

"No, sir. I'm sorry."

"Is Nick Fury alive."

"No, sir. I'm -"

"Rhodey?"

"Three hours ago he left for Wakanda with Steve Rogers, Vision, and Wanda Maximoff. I have no information on the outcome of the confrontation there beyond what can be inferred from -"

"Right. Okay. Fantastic. Send me another suit."

"If you don't have nonreductionist souls we can resurrect people. Like, your local time travel option is better for the mass casualties, we aren't that efficient at resurrecting people, but if we can't swing that we can get anybody who's a particularly important first-pass target."

" - well. That'd be - that'd be good. Excellent, even. Makes me feel bad about how this next conversation is going to be really awkward - you said your name was Loki, right?"

Permalink

"Yes. Is there one of me here? That would be kind of weird, instances of me usually don't match my circumstances - there's an Earth version that's common but I'm a one-off."

Permalink

"There's a Loki. Or, well, fifty-fifty there's a Loki. He's a dude. He is not wildly popular on this planet because he tried to conquer it."

Permalink

"I come in dude... and planetary conquest, but usually more popularly. He look like this?" She pops up an illusion of Cam, just the head, no wings. As an afterthought one of Cor. "Or this, there's ethnic variance. I don't know what the male version of Miranda or Aly's ethnic clusters would look like."

Permalink

"Nah he looks more like you than either of those people do. The planetary conquest might've been popular if he'd succeeded at it, he had the mind stone and a little army of merry slaves."

Permalink

"- take some more dictation please computer. Same address and CCs, that part's important. Update: Variant Edda has someone name of Loki looks like me but not Cam or Kib might or might not be an alt or just a namesake might be the Bell version of Midnight, check if he's alive, check if he's us, if both escalate more than you already escalated, I don't care what Sibyl's doing." She takes a deep breath.

Blink. "That's worse news than the omnicide?"

Permalink

"We can fix omnicide, it's a staggering logistical problem and it will take a really long time but even if you do have nonreductionist souls I'm working on the generic of resurrection. If you have a me and he's evil he's gonna escape."

Permalink

"Okay. It looks like my care package is still a couple of minutes out, so maybe you can explain the 'if you have a me' thing. We have a Loki. Son of Odin, except he's adopted, Thor's brother, he does the cute illusions too - what else are you having your friends check?"

Permalink

"Uh, so, there are people who look like me." She illustrates with a group photo. She fills it in with the people who are her and do not look like her. "And there's people who don't look like us but are us. This one," Kib lights up, "is a reincarnation, used to look like this," ghost Aly appears beside him. "We're called Bells, it's a pun in English, are you hearing English I can't actually tell - we all have the syllable 'Bell' in our birth names - you don't happen to know your Loki's birth name do you -"

Permalink

"I don't know his birth name. Thor might."
