I can't wait to find out if he'll actually manage to get home.

Shaking his head in disbelief of his own actions, Loki got to work.

Not just Loki, I was also surprised that he decided to send Alicia and Sir Carney back to safety.

I don't think that Loki helps them to get home only to prove to Odin that he's learned his lesson.  I mean, he put a lot of work into it, so there has to be more to it.

...and pulled back her cloak to find a small purse attached to her belt.  It contained coins and several large gems, more than enough to buy them horses and see them back to her father’s keep.

It seems that Loki really likes Alicia and her knight.  Why else would he give her coins and gems so that they can return home safely.  Coins and gems probably mean nothing to Loki, or not much, but IMO it shows that he genuinely cares.

Can't wait to read about the final confrontation between Loki and Maeve though...

He did say that he liked her.  And he can't help but respect Carney's dedication to protecting her.

As for learning his lesson... well, Loki will do whatever it takes to get what he wants.  His motivation for anything always relates to what he gets out of it.

yes, I will be happy to see Loki with the prime moment to sit the dark and evil queen down, in a way, that many probably thinks, she deserves *waves Loki themed flag* Go Go Loki ((something I never thought that I would say haha))

“What news?” the man seated in the thain’s high seat asked, anxiously.  This was the third group of men he’d sent out looking for the overdue party escorting his intended from the great city in the south to his home.  The first had never returned and the second had not only come back empty-handed, they’d found no trace of either.

   
   
 

The leader sighed, unhappy and not really willing to impart what information he had.  “We had no better luck than the others, m’Laird.”  Before the thain said anything, he held up a hand.  “We did encounter a woodcutter during our return.  The man was leading a wild stallion behind his cart.  He claimed to have found the beast wandering the edges of the old forest.” 

“And this concerns me why?” the thain scowled. 

“When I examined the animal it acted as if it was in fear of its life, m’Laird.  Sweating, startling, snorting nervously and his eyes rolling.  Jet in colour, he was obviously bred to be a knight’s destrier.  But he’d forgotten everything he was ever taught.  And he had been trained, as there were marks upon his hide from harness.  One of my knights thought he resembled Sir Carney’s mount. 

“The animal’s mane and tail were completely tangled in elf-locks, as well, m’Laird.  I ran a hand over him and my glove clunked against metal.  I had to cut the ring out of his mane, but it should answer your question at last.”  Handing the signet to a page, the leader bowed his head.  “I am truly sorry, m’Laird.  We shall not see your intended here.” 


]/center]

The thain took the small ring from the page and scowled.  It had been sized to fit his betrothed’s hand.  Clenching it in his fist, his lips tightened and he huffed an angry sigh.  He had been warned. 

He realised now he could not ignore the tithe she insisted upon.  And really, it was not so much.  A white calf born to any of his people, a twentieth part of his gold, continue to follow the old ways and his people would gain safe passage on all roads south through her lands.  But one way or another, the faerie queen would exact her due.

Well, hindsight's always 20/20.

Interesting to see though that the fairy queen even controls the parts of the land that don't belong to her realm.

The faerie queen is indeed even more powerful than I thought at first.

Cool update, love it!

Deep in the old wood, a singular confrontation took place.  A single, rather small, slender, flame-haired fey stood before the master of the Wild Hunt.  The Queen’s champion recognised the creature as Maeve’s jester and missing informant, Puck.  What he could not understand was how and why the fey had denied the Hunt passage.  No one was strong enough to manage that, not even Maeve herself.

His troop behind him and the hounds at his feet, the black elf dismounted and drew his sword.  He was not pleased when Puck only laughed and pulled several very sharp and gleaming throwing knives.  They glowed faintly with a light green witchfire.  The little imp had the gall to defy him?


The elf scowled, an expression that normally struck fear into whomever he faced, but it didn’t seem to affect Puck at all.  In fact, he appeared even more amused than ever.  Deliberately missing, he flicked a hand and one knife whistled past the Huntmaster to embed itself in the closest tree.  It stuck there, humming with the vibration of it’s expended energy.

The entire Hunt shifted, all weapons coming to bear on the fey they knew as Puck.  They leaned forward hungrily, several even moaning in anticipation.  It wasn’t often they got to hunt their own.  Their leader lifted a restraining hand and they settled back disgruntedly. 

The black elf’s brows rose as he turned to glance at the blade, Puck told him very softly to examine it carefully and take close heed of what he noticed.  The little one stood quite patiently waiting while he did..

When the Queen’s champion stared back at him, surprised and asked how it was possible, Loki dropped his ‘Puck’ disguise to the elf’s even greater shock.  The entire Hunt took one collective breath.  Well-trained, that was all they did, waiting for their master’s command.

“I am no simple fey for you to abuse at your Queen’s command, dog.  I am Loki of Asgard and I do not fear iron.  But you do.  If you wish to continue breathing, you had best slink back to your mistress and inform her she has lost this battle.
 
“There will be others, I am certain.  She should look to her future, though.  Her time here is almost past.  The humans grow more numerous each day.  Soon, they will be too strong for her magic to hold back.  She, and all of you, will wither away to mere shadows if you remain.  She would be wiser spending her energies preparing for that day.”

He sighed, “Ragnarok approaches.  And it will be the end of us all.”  Thunder rolled, a brilliant flash of rainbow light stabbed down from the night sky and the god vanished.  Banishment forgiven, time served, Loki gladly went home.

Cool chapter!
For once Loki gets a happy ending ... Or not so much since he says Ragnarok approaches?

Who knows?  Maybe he survives it this time?  (It has happened more than once.)

...no final confrontation with Maeve?  :cry

At least it's a happy ending, and Loki is allowed to return to Asgard. :)

Anyway, I love your writing, and I love the story, and I enjoyed reading it.  Thank you for posting, ban sidhe!

As for Ragnarok, the way I understand it, it stands for the cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth, and so on.  So on the one hand, it is the end of the world, but after it follows a new creation, which in turn will be followed by another Ragnarok and so forth.

You are correct about Ragnarok, Monty. It is only part of the circle.

As for Loki and Maeve, well, I guess he decided he didn't need the aggravation.  Besides, sending the message back with her champion, tail between his legs, would piss her off even more and that would please the Trickster very much. 

Thank you for reading and all the comments.  That's what makes this so much fun.   :-*

Tib, I am working on an after Ragnarok story, one in which the war between Chaos and Order is continued by several of the gods' surviving children.  We may or may not see Loki in it, I haven't really decided, yet.
