Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from Rich
Review:
You're creating an interesting puzzle here. Merging the Buffyverse with Norse legend isn't a completely original idea, but inserting the Black Widow into the mix is. I'll keep reading.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Dhampyr
Review:
Got to admit, I didn't picture Illyria manipulating Willow to kick off the next stage of Ragnarok while Loki of all people was trying to run damage control. Although it raises an interesting question about what will happen given the casket is supposed to contain the whole of Ymir's power. Which means Loki, should he fully embrace his heritage with it, could match Ymir in pure power, added to his already scary talent for sorcery. So really, Loki has more than a fighting chance until Surtur arrives. At that point he's screwed.
Comments from author:
Yep. Loki was already blindsided when Ymir showed up, so Surtr would certainly give him problems.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Valy
Review:
This chapter while very good is one big cliff hanger it seems. :) What is Natasha going to do to help, what is Loki doing and what will the results of Willow's spell cause or do?

Looking forward to the next chapter and thank you for creating this story.
Comments from author:
I do like my cliff hangers, it's true. As for the rest, well...

Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Casket Ancient Winters...Ymir...a realm of living flame...

Surtr...Loki means to start the Ragnarök! And it begins with the Fimble Winter. A red rooster will crow three times in the bowels of Hel. Heimdall will take up and blow the Gjallarhorn, awakening those who dwell in Valhalla.

The dread Midgard serpent, Jormungandr, will thrash and hew at his bonds and Fenrir will be loosed at the end of the Fimble Winter. A sword age, a shield age. Humanity will turn upon itself, and then Loki will sail on a ship of doom crewed by those that dwell in Jötunheim and the souls of the damned. The frost giants and the Æsir will wage war at the last. The All-Father will slay the fell beast Fenrir, and so will Thor slay the Jormungandr though he will take his most grievous wound in the deed.

And then Surtr will rise and take up his sword of living flame, which shines brighter than the sun, and he will cross the Bifröst, breaking it beneath his weight and striking down Heimdall. And everything he sees shall burn at the edge of his blade. All the Nine Realms shall burn and break, before the waters of the world rise and cover everything.

If you've read the Eddas, you know how this ends, and how it will all begin again.
Comments from author:
It does look that way, doesn't it? Of course, we'll see just how much of a Ragnarök there really is...

Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from raxadian

Funny, as Loki is one of his "Children".
Comments from author:
Oh, yes. Definitely. There's going to be a lot of fun with that.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from AllenPitt
Review:
I figured Illyria would get involved. She agreed to send Natasha for her own reasons. Same thing for why she hangs around Dawn. So, Ymir/Illyria... best buds? Probably not...
Comments from author:
Yep, you're right. Thanks for reviewing.

Oh, I guess this happened because Odin is gone?

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Oxnate
Review:
The plot thickens like pudding on Thanksgiving and we mortals patiently wait our next serving.

Well, there'll be more soon. Hopefully before Thanksgiving. Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Oxnate
Review:
Excellent start. It took me to the end of Avengers to figure out that the Invasion wasn't the endgame. Actually, I think it was Stark's speech.

Anyway, this line has some odd phrasing: -- Now all she needed was a way to figure out how to get there.
Comments from author:
I watched Thor 2 a looong time after I saw Avengers (a couple of months ago, in fact) and then this thought suddenly ambushed me. So I just had to write it, and then expand it, and so here we are.

Thank you for the correction. I'll sort that out.

Ah, Natasha is not stupid... is she?

Nope, she's not.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from AllenPitt
Review:
I suppose all the Marvel films to date can be regarded as opening gambits by Loki & Thanos in their separate bids to win ownership of all the Infinity Stones and create the Infinity Gauntlet... Unfortunately the heroes don't get to see those post-credit scenes, especially with the Collector. If they hear about the Guardians, then someone might figure out there are multiple Stones.
Nice to see Natasha at least realizing some of what's going on. I wonder what Illyria knows about the stones. They'd certainly be her ticket back to full godhood. And....I still wonder about Dawn and her Keyness. Could she be the embodiment of one of the stones?
Comments from author:
I can neither confirm nor deny any of that without making spoilers. But thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
As I pointed out on another review, the Avengers movie was almost certainly just one big Briar Patching con job by Loki - and it worked, all according to plan. Rather obviously, he had no actual plans to rule the Earth. His grand "defeat" by the heroes was his ticket back home - where he needed to be for the next phase of his plans.

At the end of Thor 2, we see that things are proceeding just as he had wished. He's on the throne of Asgard and how many of the Infinity Stones are now within his reach (or that of his cohort/patron, Thanos)?

Nearly the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe are puppets dancing to his tune, and so far they're all utterly clueless about it. I love it. :-)
Comments from author:
I know! It took me a while to work out that's what he'd done, too - the thought just suddenly dropped into my head one day, and I had to make a story out of it.

Thanks for reviewing.

Review:
Ah, Loki pretending to be Odin? Eventually his ego will get the better of him.
Comments from author:
Possibly. Quite possibly.

Thanks for reviewing.
