Avoid these books...

Post by Darkamber on Mon Apr 27, 2015 10:20 am

I love to read novels where Loki features as a prominent character;
I collect them, too.
I've downloaded what I can find on Amazon, but a couple have been disappointing, as it turned out to be Marvel fan fiction. When I pay for a book or short story that features Loki, I don't want to read Marvel fan fiction.

Oh, seriously? I have 1-800-Mischief but haven't gotten around to reading it. Thanks for the heads up, that would've been awful :/

Wow, they could seriously get in trouble with that if they're not careful!
That aside...who is Loki paired up with?
I've written some Marvel!Loki fan fiction and I currently have on Marvel!LokixThor role play but at least I have the decency to be ashamed! Laughing
I love role playing Marvel!Thor. I intended to role play Loki but when I was developing a story, Thor just randomly comes sliding Kramer style into my head. He talked alot, liked attention and I was very comfortable RP'ing him. My Marvel!Thor is such a sweet mush. ^_^

Thor: You are ashamed of me? *lowers head in disappointment and shame, runs a finger awkwardly on Mjolnir, wipes away a tear with a corner of his cape*

Crying or Very sad I sometimes forget they can hear and understand my conversations.

This is so off-subject, but does Thor like Poptarts? (Reason why I curiously ask, I offered Loki one and Loki told me, Poptarts are not quite his cup of tea, but he mentioned Thor does.)

Huh, in my experience he loves Pop Tarts (I think--at least, he said yes when I offered him one a few months ago). The S'mores kind, anyway. I haven't offered him any other flavors (yet).

This is Marvel!Thor and a role playing character so it doesn't count. RP characters have some being and life but he's not Thor, the god. I think he likes lemon bars though because he offered some to Marvel!Loki because they were Loki's favorite in that RP. But I suspect he likes them too.

With that, I'm going to shut up about Marvel. I didn't realize I was on the general topic of the general board. Sorry! Embarassed

I never finished the "
1-800-michief"
, I stopped at the mentioning of Thor being Loki's brother, and Loki being described as looking like Marvel-Loki. That was enough Marvel-Loki for me.
In "
Tricking Loki"
, Marvel-Loki is paired with a mortal woman. It's eternal love, want to have children, at first sight. Author insert, much?

*facepalm* Those books sound awful. They definitely sound like author inserts.

I'm just amazed at how much blatant rippoff fanfic people are trying to publish now.

The worst I have seen through was a complete, almost word-for-word copy of the Zevran romance from Dragon Age Origins with names only slightly changed. Someone trying to sell that. As a legit book.

Those kind of errors like Thor and Loki being brothers are exactly the kind of stuff I wanted to keep out of the antho I edited that just came out. I selected the stories for authenticity, and I'm really happy with all the stories from a point of view of correct historical and mythological details. Not everyone will like every story, but that's par for the course with any antho.

I think I've mentioned on here before that I'm writing a novel, but I don't think I mentioned the antho before. So, there is my mention of it: No Horns On These Helmets. There, now I can say I am legitimately WORKING on the net. Never mind the part where I've been looking at cute cat pictures. Ehehe.
