Author's Summary: Tony doesn't know anything about love. He's convinced himself it's for the best.

Review:
Amora hits Loki with a love spell, and Tony's in the wrong place at the wrong time. That's the gist, but the plot serves the characters, not the other way around, showing off Loki's self doubt and wet-cat disdain and Tony's stubborn but sometimes rudderless drive to do everything his own way.

Stereobone gets a lot of emotion across without letting anyone slip character for a moment. (Impressive given that, for both men, the choice between expressing their feelings and drinking bleach might be a stumper.) Desiderata's got pitch perfect Tony, Loki, Thor and... everyone, really. From snarky humor to suspense to angst -- there's a brisk pace and great dialog that make it feel as though you're there.
