Thor balanced Bryn on a forearm, and put his free hand on top of Thanner’s little noggin. “Yes, we are, little man.”
Thanner escaped from between his parents and bounced around the room, his sleepiness suddenly gone as he riled up the dogs and scared the cat. The excitement didn’t upset the baby, but instead got her excited for whatever was happening around her. All that work to get them to sleep and now they were all up in the middle of the night planning for a trip to Asgard. Just a typical day in the Fosterson house, it seemed.
However, Thor remained seated, keeping Brynhildr from falling over while she tested out her arms and legs against him and made high pitched noises at her brother and the animals who came up to sniff her. He hooked his leg around Jane’s, rubbing his foot against her ankle.
"Oh, usually just a bonfire. Junk and scrap wood. One time I set a cow on fire…" Thanner stopped and looked at his papa, wide-eyed, and Thor quickly added, "It was already dead. Unfortunate incident with a giant. We were giving it a proper burial." This seemed to satisfy him and he resumed his bouncing, occasionally hopping back to Jane to swipe a bit of food off her plate with his hands.
He leaned over, whispering to Jane and brushing his beard against her neck, leaving a few kisses behind, “Another time I set myself on fire, so hopefully you can keep me away from open flames this time. That was an awful birthday… 3,500 and stupid as an ox…” With their children in the room, he kept the PDA to a minimum, although he was certain Thanner and Bryn were used to their mama and papa kissing around them by now.
Jane shook her head at Thanner as he started to get wild, but there was no frustration or anger. She was at home, and that meant being relaxed. She supported Bryn’s hand as Bryn pushed against Thor, asserting the strength expected of a little warrior. When Thor mentioned the cow, she looked at Thanner, and then back at Thor.
"A cow?" She looked grossed out for a minute, then was clearly into science mode. "Over 200 bones, 30 gallons of urine per day; 65 pounds of — poo," she commented. "That was probably pretty messy."
She carefully surrendered her plate to Thanner, who simply laughed that she’d said ‘poo,’ and it didn’t seem to bother his appetite.
"Did you know that cows can —"
And then, at Thor’s kiss, she was instantly distracted as Thanner and Bryn both looked up at her to finish the fact.
Let no one say the God of Thunder was less loved than science, for clearly he distracted her from it. She let out a giggle and relaxed next to him as Bryn pawed at her arm.
You adorable, precious goober:)

- Tell me, why did you leave home?
- Sometimes I think it was because I could not see the stars from my chambers… Sometimes it’s for so many more reasons than that. You?
- I fear my tale may be somewhat longer than yours…
The strong-willed Lady Jane escapes her family in search of starlight on the open road, but quickly runs into a seemingly aimless wanderer named Thor; Unbeknownst to her, Thor is high-born, his own mother a sister of the king, but was ousted by his father years ago for reasons he himself would rather not think of…
