SUMMARY: On Monday morning Thor parades bare-ass naked around the Tower; it all goes downhill from there. Or, the one where New York gets infected with alien sex pollen, Steve appears to be the only sane man, and the things that ensue include hilarity, fake zombies, pining and surprise makeouts. And a bear trap. (Given by the author.)
NOTES: Steve's POV

So when he exits the elevator to the communal floor of the Tower and his eyes are immediately assaulted with over two hundred pounds of naked Thor, Steve just clears his throat and says, 'Hi. Have you seen Natasha or Clint anywhere? We were supposed to run some combat simulations.'

It seems like Thor needs a moment to focus properly on Steve. He smiles, not the usual bright smile of someone who isn't entirely sure what's going on around him at all times, but something Steve thought was only reserved for Ms Foster. 'Greetings, Steve Rogers,' Thor says, sounding a little hoarse. Maybe he has the flu. 'Alas, I have not seen Natasha Romanoff and Clint Barton.'

'Ah,' Steve says, and keeps his eyes somewhere above Thor's left ear.

'I shall pass on the message that you have need of them,' Thor adds.


'Today appears unusual to me,' says Thor, sounding contemplative. 'I have not found myself in the mood for wrestling in what you would call millennia on Midgard, yet today my thoughts stray to such times that I would challenge my brother or the Warriors Three, and we would frolic, the sun warming our bare flesh.' Thor takes a step forward; Steve takes a step back, into the elevator. It probably makes him a terrible friend, but he really doesn't want to hear about naked Asgardian wrestling.

'Er,' he says.

'I could teach you this noble art, Steve Rogers,' Thor offers, taking another step closer, voice low with something that definitely isn't the flu.

'Maybe some other…time?' Steve punches the button for ground floor, and the elevator doors slide shut. He breathes a sigh of relief, fiddles with the collar of his shirt and during the drive back to Brooklyn he reminds himself that Thor is from a vastly different culture, one that has vastly different customs regarding frolicking naked in the sun, and it's not his fault they make Steve uncomfortable. Back home Steve thinks about emailing Bucky, because Thor's Thorness is something always guaranteed to make him laugh, but Bucky might not appreciate distractions while away on a mission.

So Steve forgets all about it, and that is his first mistake.

So much LOL and AWESOME in this fic, seriously! I had a great time reading Escape From New York. It was so delightful and hilarious. If you ever have a shitty day, read this fic. It will make everything better! It's a fic with one of my favorite tropes: Sex Pollen. But it's not your usual Sex Pollen fic because the main characters aren't affected here. But everyone else is in New York. Including all the other Avengers which leads to many uncomfortable and mortifying situations for our poor boys. :D HAHAH. You should read this, really, don't miss out on the fun. It comes with great characterizations, too.
