author’s summary: Thor has never wanted anything to do with the Mage-Templar war, until the Templars come to take Loki away. But this is Loki, and Loki always has a plan.
When I saw this story on AO3, I knew it had to be my first rec. Crossing over my two current favorite fandoms? Sold!
Deeply AU for both fandoms, but in a way that fits both the characters and the DA lore; because clearly, if Loki is playing Bethany to Thor’s Hawke - even playing Loki as sympathetic - things are going to be a little bit different. The way the author has placed these characters in Kirkwall feels authentic, and makes me want to know more about how they’d fit into the DA storyline. Definitely worth a read if you’re a fan of both!
