I like this chapter for two reasons: one, it marks the halfway point of this waste of internet space, and two, it’s pretty short. Not that NWY is capable of writing a chapter-length chapter (if that even makes sense) but you know.

Hey, guys! Wassup?!? Are you ready for another rip-roaring chapter of Once in A Lifetime?

Yeah, neither am I.

(Alleynah’s P.O.V.)
Loki and I got ready to go. I found an old outfit of my ex boyfriends and gave it to him to wear.
“Ready to go?”

Wow, that’s wrong. Why is A-Sue dressing up Loki in all of her exes’ clothes? At least, I’m assuming she means all of her exes because there’s no apostrophe to indicate singular possession. Better question, why does she still have all of her exes’ clothes? She must have had a lot of exes if she has enough of their clothes to make an entire outfit. And why would Loki need them? Can’t he just magic back the suit and scarf ensemble we saw in Thor and The Avengers? You would also think she might give him some time after handing him some clothes to get ready. Guess not.

Hello, dearest patrons! Thank you for being patient with me while I simultaneously power through the shitstorm that is Breaking Dawn and try to find time to write my Library entry for the week. It’s been rough and you all have my undying gratitude. Sadly, all I have to offer you is a dissection of the fourth chapter of this terrible fic and a Subway coupon. Sigh. Thank God these chapters are short.

By this point, I am so fucking done with this fic that it isn’t even funny. And I’m only on chapter three. Of eleven. So you can forget about a cutesy little intro. I just want to get this chapter over with.

*May or may not have involved drinking.

Gather round and grab your ammo as we prepare to rip into the second installment of Once in a Lifetime. To recap: Loki is wandering aimlessly through an unspecified part of New York when he stops a random lady from getting mugged. The lady has a long fancy Sueish name, and Loki immediately gets a crush on her. He then follows her home, because that’s not creepy at all, no siree. We left off with our intrepid self-insert explaining the meaning of the term “Loki’d.”

Kate is the snarking genius behind our sister site (as she mentions and links below; check it out, it’s good stuff).  We at the Library have been badgering Kate for a while to write a few guest posts for us, and she has obliged, much to our delight, and soon, to yours.

*Beware! Here be spoilers!*

Hey, readers! As I am a first-time snarker in this lovely library, allow me to introduce myself: I’m Kate. I make fun of Twilight. A lot. When I’m not making fun of Twilight, I need some other things to snark at, which is why I’m here. Today, I have for you a craptastic piece of Avengers fanfiction. The Avengers is one of those movies that spawned a metric asston of OC fanfiction, which means you can’t surf ff.net without drowning in Sues and crack fics. I had plenty of options to choose from.
