“What is it, baby?” Thor asked, reaching out to feel his forehead with the back of his hand. “Ohh, you feel a little warmer than usual. Is it your tummy or your head? We will get you some medicine and soup and put you to bed, then. Come here.” He knelt down to pick Thanner up, holding him with one arm and began searching through the medicine. “Cough syrup? Do you have a cough? Or… where is the children’s flu and cold I had in here… ah, here we are. Down you go, then.”
He carefully sat Thanner down on the closed toilet and handed him the medicine and a little cup of water. “Take these. Do not spit them out. It may taste bad, but you will feel better in no time at all. I am sorry you did not get my immunity to illness, but this will make you stronger to go through this. Just like your father and Jane!”
“My head.” Thanner murmured weakly, his eyes threatening to close once again. Once he was in Thor’s arms, Thanner leaned against him, letting his eyes close, and feeling comforted while he rested against Thor. Nodding a little, he couldn’t hold back the chest wrenching cough that had been building up ever since he started to talk. “….Yes.” He croaked, his voice cracking at the strain.
Thanner was able to keep himself upright by pure will, looking up at Thor through half lidded eyes. Numbly, he took the pills, and swallowed them quickly, and gulped down the water, trying to get it over quickly while he scrunched up his face at the taste. “Why am I sick? Did I do something bad mammy?” His voice was a mere whisper as he voiced out his concerns. Considering this was the first time for him, he didn’t not understand what he done to warrant such a condition.
“Mama? Dada? Anyone? I don’t feel so good.” Thanner looked a little pale and feverish, his eyes nearly closing from fatigue as he looked around to see if anyone was around.
I think I’m starting to come down with a cold, and all I really want is to go to bed and hopefully sleep this off. But I don’t want to leave you all hanging, so here, have a sick!Thanner open starter.
Mun and Muse have combined for today.
Hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow. :)
Had a few things going on after my exams, but I’m managing my time a bit better now. So I should be able to reply to everyone tomorrow.
“Uncey Caw Caw, what are you drinking? Can I try some?” Thanner used the full extent of his puppy dog eyes, curious about all the new food and drink he was coming across.
Whilst in the middle of a throng of people, it didn’t take Thanner long to find himself lost. Or as lost as one could be among familiar faces. Still, it didn’t seem to bother him, as he made his way to one of the tables laden down with food. His eyes widened at the sight of it, and his stomach grumbled appreciably, as even though he had enjoyed the ceremony, he felt starving after it.
Without hesitation, he began to eat different pieces of food, finding he liked nearly all of it, despite the fact that it was new to him. Son of Thor indeed. Eventually, he grew thirsty, and spotted a punch bowl, that was unfortunately full of alcoholic beverages. Not giving it a second thought, he started to fill up a glass full of the liquid, and nearly downed the glass, considering he felt parched after the food. He was feeling a little giggly after that, as he reached for the second one, thinking it would not be noticed by anyone.
- thannerthorson started following you
The metal-clad monarch looked upon the young boy, drawing in a breath slowly. Patience. He mentally reminded himself that even children could be useful. A slow exhale, accompanied by the barely audible whirr of the mask filtration systems.
“You stand in the presence of Victor Von Doom, Monarch of Latveria - whom might you be, young master?”
Thanner frowned upon seeing the well known villain, and the bane of the superheroes who called themselves the ‘Fantastic Four’. He had watched recordings of their many battles, so he was well aware of who he was dealing with, and that he should be careful. It wasn’t that he wasn’t prepared to fight, he wanted that to be a last resort.
“My name is Thanner Thorson.” He spoke proudly with conviction standing at his full height, making him look more brave than he probably felt right now. His eyes watched Victor’s every moment carefully, waiting for some kind of attack.
Jacob let out a soft chuckle as he watched his young cousin run up to him with beaming joy and hugged him. He wrapped his arms around him and gave him a a small hug, being carefully not to squeeze him to hard. “I can.” He said with a smile. “My dad taught me some while growing up.”
Thanner was quite able to endure certain amount of strength, as he came from two powerful beings himself. So, he could return the hug, with a good amount of strength himself, using part of the power he was born with. However, he pulled back from the hug when he heard about the magic. An excited grin appeared on his face as he spoke enthusiastically. “You can? Can you show me some?” His expression made him look like an excited puppy dog, his eyes expectant.
Thor smoothed back Thanner’s hair and pressed a kiss to his cheek. “No, baby, you could never hurt them. You will do very well! You will be a big brother and an uncle and a big cousin. Every one of them will look up to you and you can teach them right from wrong, and you will help them. I believe in you, and you will have help if you need it. I am a big brother, too! And so are your big brothers! And you have big sisters to help, and your cousin, Vali.”
A loud laugh escaped Thor, “No! You do not have to be a dog! I suppose you could, but being a little boy is probably better. Why do we not go tomorrow? Or! I can get it while you are at the lab with Jane tomorrow, and it will be waiting here for you when you get home. How does that sound?”
Thanner was silent for a moment, mulling that over. He supposed that it wouldn’t be too bad if he wasn’t doing it alone, and like his mother said, he would be able for it. To him, it was like a mission. With that thought in mind, a bright smile illuminated Thanner’s face, looking up at Thor as he spoke. “Aye aye captain!” He saluted him with a broad smile on his face, his eyes twinkling in excitement. “I’ll be the best big brother ever!” Thanner spoke with determination, sure of the fact that this would happen.
At his next words, Thanner couldn’t help but pout a little. ‘But I want it now’, he thought to himself. However, at the compromise of seeing after working in the lab, he couldn’t help but agree. Jane said she had something exciting to show him, and he couldn’t afford to be distracted before it. Holding out his hand, he nodded his head in confirmation. “Deal! Can we let Jane see it too?”
