Summary: “When much is taken, something is returned.” - Terry Pratchett, Nation

Loki falls. Injured and unable to access his magic, he must struggle to restore himself physically and mentally before the Bifrost is repaired and Asgard comes to find him. That would be difficult enough, but one of Asgard’s deepest secrets has followed him...

Review: As the author puts it: "In many ways, this story is my fannish love letter to the town where I grew up. Several of the characters are composites of or inspired by people I knew when I was a kid, lo these many years ago; the Pike Free Library was given a name-change but is otherwise pretty much identical to the one I frequented (including the bathtub in the children’s room, which I have never grown out of wanting for my very own)."

The love she holds for both the area and the townfolk, shows in all the loving details and backstory. In a lot of story's that are some richly populated with OCs things tend to get bogged down in the detils, but Galaxy soup not only manages to keep the story moving, she also makes you want to move to this town.

Also she writes an absolutely amazing gender-queer Loki voice!
