This darling young man here is Loki Ivan, who claims to be a time traveler from the future. Not that he'll be quick to spread that news, or really anything about himself, around. He's come back in time for a reason, though where to even begin with dealing with it he's no idea. He's going to have a bit of a difficult time until he can figure himself out in this time. Much like he came into this world without clothing, Ivan's arrived in a time where he has not a single person in the world who knows him. This boy will be making friends, enemies, and possibly lovers all in "real time" on the site. Most meetings Ivan will likely be cautious around the other person, trying to get a feel for the type of person they are. But as Ivan gets more familiar with this time he'll begin to be less guarded with others. Personality wise, once Ivan has warmed up to someone, he is actually quite the fun person who enjoys some good jokes and mischief, that he may or may not use his time traveling abilities to cause. So long as they aren't one of the majorly well known supers he was told to avoid(not that it will be impossible for him to get involved in some way with the Legends or Syndicate). When it comes to those who've made an enemy of Ivan, they should know that he is very vindictive and can hold a grudge for a very long time.While Ivan won't be actively seeking love/romance/flings/or anything or a sexual nature, that does not mean that he won't find himself in these situations. He is a grown man with urges and desires like anyone else, and while he might resist initially, if he really likes the person he won't fight for long. He'll just make sure he's well protected if they're of the female persuasion. It'd be too weird having a child born before or around the same time as himself, and he will not let that happen. Both genders are more than welcome to inquire about this area, although I'll likely suggest friendship/a topic or two before it goes here. Lastly I'm open to lots of plotting ideas, so feel free to post something up and I'll give you a response!
Ivan & Rosie!Rosie here would make a good friend of his. She's quirky and crazy, and she'll love to listen to him. She's not sure about her powers or anything, really, and she gets confused often. I think they'll get along really well, and Rosie may look at him as more of an older brother. She's young, but acts younger than her age because of her powers paired with an abusive past.
IVAN & GALEIf Ivan needs a mischief buddy Gale is certainly one for the team. She's all for chaotic fun that has nothing to do with the syndicate or the legends. Though she may push him in the direction of the syndicate now and again.
Ivan & RosieAww, I think Ivan would adore little Rosie and would very much act like an older brother to her. He'd easily fall into this habit, considering that have a little sister in the future, and Rosie will remind him of her (making him a bit home sick XP). He'll very likely become a bit protective of her do to this fact.
Ivan & GaleMischievous partner in crime? Sign Ivan up! He'll just have to be like "LOL no" every time she subtly pushes him in the direction of the Syndicate. He knows all about them and isn't too inclined to be used by the group...
Ivan & HankI do apologize in advance that Hank is kind of sort of married. Any relationship that could be more than friends would have to be temporary, though I feel like there could be a lot of jealousy there if Ivan got feelings for Hank. I don't think he's the type of person, but maybe tries to get Curtis out of the picture for good? (not kill him, but like spread rumors or something... I watched Avengers a couple days ago, Tommy is still Loki in my brain)Hank is kind of a big deal for the Legends since he's basically Michael's right hand ((kind of like pepper potts, but not tappin that) so there could be a kind of hesitation for them to become friends, even though Hank is a very easy person to get along with. I'm still really down with the idea of Ivan popping into Hank's place (he's living with his brother at the moment) and sees this gorgeous naked man in his room/on his bed. It would lead to a very funny plot I believe. Hank would offer him clothes at least lol
Loki & CapOh the jealousy if Ivan develops strong feelings for Hank. There'd be so much frustration on his part, mostly because of Hank's loyalty to his estranged [ex]husband, but also because Ivan would be inwardly fussing at himself for desiring to get involved with someone from the past. There will be so much of him inwardly going "Why don't you love me????" And Ivan's more the type to try and get Hank out to have a good time with him aka get him drunk and seduce him to try and win him over than spreading malicious rumors. Although he probably won't have a fond opinion of Curtis. When Ivan realizes who Hank is, he'll probably have an "oh shit" moment, and things'll probably get a little awkward between them. Hmm, maybe Hank get's worried or something when Ivan get a bit awkward, leading to questions and what not. I can imagine at some point Hank asking enough questions/making it awkward enough for Ivan for him to straight up say he's from the future...Oh I'm down with the idea too. It would be hilarious and then the image of Ivan trying on Hank's clothing, only to find that they're cutting it close to the shorter side since Ivan's two inches taller and a bit lanky XD.
Ivan & ShivaSO THIS RANDOMLY CAME TO ME!! SINCE HOME BOY HERE IS FROM THE FUTURE MY PLAN FOR AMY TO BASICALLY PUT HERSELF IN A CRYOGENIC STATE BECAUSE THAT'S HER BODY'S WAY TO KEEP HER FROM DYING MAYBE SHE ACTUALLY WAKES UP IN HIS TIEEEEM. So they could know each other... from the future. Just here, she hasn't technically 'died' yet. So for these two too meet each other would be all sorts of crazy fun!! Because I see them have being good friends in the future (they have a lot of personality traits in common), maybe for Ivan, its great to see someone from his time, since she'll look the same, even if she doesn't know who he is yet!! Cute?! I think yes.
Ivan & AmyInteresting very interesting! Dear Amy won't be under ice for too long then if Ivan knows her in the future, as the dear boy will actually be born in 2015. For Ivan seeing people he knows in the future can be both very comforting and unsettling. On the one hand the familiarity will make him feel a great deal less homesick, and that's always a bonus. On the other hand he knows he's playing a risky game by coming back and he doesn't want to change the lives of those he knows in the future too much. If/when he sees Amy(if you decide you do wanna go through with this plot) he'll have an instant fondness for her, but he'll always have it in the back of his mind that she'll at some point go through the whole cryogenic freezing process which I would assume will be a very difficult/emotional thing for her to deal with.He'll end up just avoiding talking about himself and try his best not to seem like he already knows her well as a friend. But there will no doubt be slip ups, like him knowing things that she told him in the future but she hasn't said in this time. At the very least Ivan is totally cool with having/gaining more friends in the past, even if he's worried constantly in the back of his mind that he might say too much when he shouldn't.
Ivan & AmyNah, she'll probably have been out for a long time if he was born in 2015, she has probably only been awake for two years or so at his current age. I can see her telling him about all the things she remembered from her time, and maybe even told him that she wished she was awake to be able to do more or whatever. So it might be a little painful for Ivan to see her now just because he knows what her fate is. Though I do see current Amy loving him lots :3 she'd think his laugh was adorable haha When ever we get around to doing a thread for them, I think it'll be extra cute, I just had to throw this idea at you before I lost it
