Disclaim Her: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by Arakawa Hiromu and various publishers. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended. Also, the opinions of certain main characters in regards to some cultural practises in no way reflect the author's own opinions.
All direct quotes from the source material are taken from the Viz translation of the manga. The only thing borrowed from Brotherhood is that everyone was transferred to hospital, rather than resting in tents set up on the parade grounds, after the final battle. (&, you know, Roy didn't get his eye-fix right off. He needs to suffer a little, let's be honest. XD)

A/N: I originally had something else planned for the Big Bang, not a soulmate AU, but I was cooling my heels for a few hours and went looking for soulmate ideas, because I kinda wanted to write one, eventually. Found one on a list on silentpeaches' tumblr about seeing in your soulmate's eye colour and it just...sparked a dozen ideas. Was upset later and needed to write something, and this is what ended up being first choice.
I honestly wasn't certain, for a while, that it would be long enough for the Big Bang, and then it exploded and I have no regrets.

EdRoy is the main ship, and they're the only PoV characters, but the other ships all play their own parts in the plot, especially the AlMay.

So, I went snooping through the manga, just to check, and Roy grabbing Ed's shirt-front when they first meet is the closest they get to touching, skin-to-skin. Roy wears gloves a lot, and so does Ed. And Ed's clearly right-handed, so he takes things with his right hand. Which proved to be terrible fic fodder. (Damn these boys.)

My fantastic artists are eirelis and VioVayo! Once they've posted their pieces, I'll link them in the text and put a link to them at the notes at the bottom of the chapter each pic corresponds with. They'll also be linked in the masterpost on tumblr, once that goes up.

Last, but never least, a thousand thanks to my betas, the lovely Hangebokhan and fantastic Ciesste, who spotted the stupidest of my errors and were weirdly polite about it. ;) Thanks again, luvs. ♥ (Any further errors are 100% my own fault, because I always go back through before posting and tweak a couple things.)

There are three parts to this piece, and I'll be posting every other day. For your planning purposes.

Title: The Lightning Strike
Fandom: Marvel (movie 'verse)
Author: Batsutousai
Betas: Runic, SharaLunison, Nimohtar
Rating: Mature
Pairings: Loki/Tony Stark, Phil Coulson/Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov, Thor/Jane Foster
Warnings: Alpha/Beta/Omega trope (to an extent), actual wolf pack dynamics, intersexual Jötnar, sexism, suggestion of previous dub-/non-con, mating, hurt/comfort, Loki just needs some love, Bruce really wants to go Hulk on Odin, Tony is confused about everything (but not as much as Steve), Clint is an absolute ass (& drags Natasha and Phil along for the ride), Pepper is kinda a BAMF
Summary: Pack dynamics are confusing enough for the Avengers without adding the complete mess that Thor and Loki grew up with, but they aren't given much choice when Loki goes into heat in the middle of a battle and Tony's alpha instincts tell him he has to take care of his pack, enemy or no.

A/N: Whereupon Bats decides she wants to try her hand at the Alpha/Beta/Omega trope.

I did some research on actual wolves for this, which involved some tears, because the reality of wolf packs is nothing like the trope. (Whoops.)
SO! Fair warning, the human faction tends not to be anything like the trope, but the Æsir and Jötnar are, in a slightly complicated way that only ends poorly for Loki. *shifty*

Title comes from Snow Patrol's song of the same name. (The three-part, sixteen minute version, not the single.) I realised, while struggling for a title, that the three movements followed with the movements of this fic, and the 'chapter' titles follow that.

Super awesome gigantic props and adoration to Runic, who let me bounce ideas off her and helped me spot a couple of stupids before they ended up on the screen. (She's also the one who talked me into using this for the FrostIron Bang on tumblr and kept me going when scenes got stuck.)
Additional shout-outs to SharaLunison and Nimohtar, my lovely long-time betas, who gave this insanity a couple more glances before any of my 'I haven't slept in over twenty hours' errors could get me into trouble.
Final shout-out to my artist, wnnb_darklord, who put together an awesome playlist for this fic, which includes the title songs speckled throughout, and a gifset for a scene in the first movement. The playlist can be found on this tumblr post, the link to the gifset is within the text, or in the A/N at the end of this chapter.
