Summary: War pays a visit, (unknowingly) post de-cursing

It had been a while since she'd stopped by, War thought as she walked into the hospital wing. A nagging voice in her head said too long, but she pushed it to the back of her mind, not wanting to deal with the question of quite how she classified Loki: War wasn't supposed to have friends.

Still, even when he was ill it was good to have someone to talk to: that didn't need explanation. As she knocked on the door to his room, then started to slowly push it open, she hoped the god would be in a talkative mood.

There was a sound and he looked up from the book he'd been trying to read. Someone stood in the door. A woman. A faint feeling told him he was supposed to know her name, but the memory wouldn't come. For some reason that didn't surprise him either.

He waited to see what she would do.

Loki. Was that his name? He couldn't remember, but again it didn't surprise him all that much. Somehow he expected not to remember things.

"Reading?" He frowned at the book. "I ... can't remember. Why can't I remember? One is supposed to remember what one's reading, isn't one?"

He looked up at the woman pleadingly hoping for an explanation.

"Ill?" Loki repeated. "Am I?"

"Wait. I'm supposed to know you, right? Who are you?" Somehow it had become important to know, tough if he'd forgotten what he'd read, he feared that he'd forget her as well. Had he ever been able to remember things? Would he ever?

"So that's what this place is." It made sense somehow. Something else didn't feel right, though. "I worked? What did we work?"

Her name didn't ring any bells either, but ... "Ruby War? I like that. A war over rubies, yes," he mumbled mostly to himself. Too bad he'd forget it all again soon.

"I ... I remember a ... book," Loki said slowly and looked around. Ah yes, there it was. In his hand. "So I like to trick people? Yes, I think I do. And I like books."

He was pretty sure there were more things he liked, but right now he couldn't remember what they were. Maybe he'd remember later when he'd forgotten the book and Ruby War.

"I think I like you, too," he stated. "I don't want to forget you again."

He shook his head slowly. "No, I don't remember having read any books."

Loki tried to figure out how far back his memory went. It didn't seem like much. If Ruby War left this room now and he forgot ...

"No! Don't go! I don't want to forget!"

He couldn't remember her coming in, so maybe he could only remember things while there was somebody with him? It didn't seem quite right, but then he didn't know anything about memory problems, or if he ever did, he'd forgotten all of it.

"Please don't go," he begged.

Loki clung to her hand in a way he'd normally never have dared, but now that he couldn't remember Odin and all his Norse pride his insecurity was all too obvious. He'd be terribly embarrassed, if he ever regained his memory.

"Can you tell me - Do you know - more about who I was, why I'm here?" he asked. "I ... I just wish I could remember who I am."

"Adam," Loki echoed. He could not remember anyone called Adam, though he was somehow quite sure that it was a very common name. Oh well, if he'd been interested enough to bring him here, hopefully this Adam would also be interested enough to stop by at some point and reintroduce himself.

"A god ..." This time he was pretty sure that there was a memory there, just out of reach. Something about a very tall man who ... had lost one eye ... and Loki knew exactly how it had happened ...

Or maybe not. As quickly as it had come to him the memory was gone again, but Ruby War had more interesting revelations for him anyway.

"Oh yes, I do love tricks and animals. Especially furry ones." There was a red horse, he was almost sure, and a big black dogie. "Horses and dogs?" He suggested.

"Red horse?" Loki asked trying hard to remember. "Eight legs ... No, that can't be right. Maybe two red horses?"

He had a family? Where were they then? The one-eyed man flashed through his thoughts again, but he couldn't hold the picture. Instead a woman with a cat in her lap appeared. She gave Loki a grumpy glare before she too disappeared. There were a few flashes of different faces, more animals a pregnant woman with wings and then the horse was back.

"No," Loki said sadly. "All I seem to remember is a red horse with eight legs and that can't be right. Maybe I dreamed it."

Born a giant? Loki looked down at where his feet were poking out under the blanket.

"I guess I must have shrunk a bit then." He wasn't entirely sure he believed that part of the story. "And Aesir? Odin?"

For a moment he saw a flash of some large room, a table, food, people around that table, but when he tried to look more closely at their faces it was gone.

Loki concentrated hard, but no memories of this place came. Well, except for the flashes of things he was sure he knew but was unable to place.

"A raven?" he asked surprised at the next picture that lasted long enough to actually identify the contents. "No, two. Do I know someone who'd have two ravens sit on his shoulders and wears a large hat?"

"Thought and Memory?" Loki repeated slightly surprised to discover that he spoke more than one language. "No, I can't properly picture anything. I get a picture flashing into my mind, but it disappears quickly and I can't bring it back."

Odin's wife Frigga, if you want to recognise her

"There was a woman with a cat earlier," Loki tried to recall the picture, but that was pretty much all he still knew. "She was sitting by a fire, I think."

It was all rather vague and he didn't even remember whether she'd been pretty. Why wouldn't the pictures stick around?

This caused Loki to have his first acoustic flash of memory: Old Norse insults over the oddly familiar sound of pots and bowls hitting the wall. He wasn't quite sure why he suspected that War had secretly enjoyed her meetings with this Frigga.

He was supposed to be looking for memories of his wife, though, not Odin's.

"A woman with ... wings?" This picture was confusing and somehow didn't fir in with the acustic memory.

"A cloak?" Loki said surprised. "It didn't look all that much like a cloak to me, but I guess if she can shapeshift*."

"I'd like to be able to shapeshift. I could be a wolf." He grinned. "Like a werewolf."

* Luckily his inability to hold on to anything he learned at the moment for more than about half an hour would save both Uriel and Frigga the indignity of finding out about the mixup.

Loki concentrated very hard on wolves, but all he got was the eight legged horse again. Then a man and woman. Twins?

"Blond twins?" he asked Ruby. "But they ... don't like me?"

"Thor? Who's Thor?" Loki looked around the room to make sure there wasn't anybody else present in the room that he'd forgotten about. "And why did I want her to marry that Freya-girl's chosen husband?"

That he'd arrived drunk at a feast somehow didn't surprise him so he didn't pay much attention to that tale. Just your usual run of the mill drunken argument.


Angels and demons / most people wouldn't believe / how great the sex is.
