Fallen AvengersxValkyrie!Reader Part 1
You gazed out across the vast expanse of Valhalla. There was only one word for the expression on your face. Longing. Not longing for Valhalla of course. No. You were free to go wherever you wanted within the realm. It was what was outside of the Valhalla that intrigued you.
You had always been classed as a dreamer among your people. Valkyries, the others always reminded you, are to serve the dead of Valhalla and protect the realm. What could the outside possibly offer you? It is dangerous out there, they said, the only place a Valkyrie belongs is on Valhalla.
Still, the other realms held nothing but mystery and adventure to you.
You fought with yourself on many an occasion. Would you stay or would you go? Who knew what brand of adventure was waiting for you? Who knew what sort of creatures there were to discover?
Finally you had arrived at the day that you made up your mind. You didn’t care what the others said; you were going to go on an adventure!
It was nightfall when you decided to leave. You crept through the empty golden halls. Just as you were about to slip out the grand doors, something softly tugged you back.
You glanced down to see one of the youngest Valkyries, Avalon, a girl you had taken care of on more than one occasion, holding onto the back of your white dress tunic.
“(Name), are you leaving us?” The little girl whispered. You crouched down so that you were more on the child’s level.
“Just for a little while. I’ll come home eventually. I just want to see more than the mountains of Valhalla.”
“But I don’t want you to leave.” Avalon sniffled. You pulled the little Valkyrie in for a hug and gently massaged her light grey wings.
“But I’ll be back. Promise me you’ll be brave until I return?” Avalon refused to meet your eyes but nodded. You kissed her head and gently pushed her back down the hall.
“Back to bed with you.” You ordered. With Avalon handled, you stepped toward the doors again. This was not how you imagined your journey would begin. Now that you were on your way, however, nothing was going to stop you. Well… almost nothing.
You were two realms away from Valhalla when it happened. It was the worst thing that could have happened to you really. You were capable of handling many things. But not this.
Your wings stopped working.
