The year is 14 AD, Thor is a Gladiator in the Roman Colosseum, a captive from the wars against Germany, Loki is a Roman Nobleman, or something that looks a lot like it and everything Thor hates. When Loki sees Thor in the arena he knows he has to have him.
This probably is nowhere near to what you expected, but it is what came to my mind after I read the prompt. I hope you will not be too disappointed.
If there is anything Loki values above all, it is privacy. And the combination of his sharp tongue and his notoriety as the school’s prankster, is enough to ensure him just that. Not that anyone could actually prove he had been behind someone locking Volstagg with a skunk in the janitor’s closet. Or that he had his fingers in that unfortunate accident with Sif and bleach in her shampoo bottle. But still, it made people give him a wide berth, leaving him mostly alone. And Loki likes it that way. It is infinitely easier to ignore stupidity of others when it is kept away from his eyes and ears.
But there is always an exception to every rule, and this particular exception comes in the form of six feet worth of muscle and golden skin, coupled with shoulder length blonde hair some girls would kill for, and the eyes the colour of the clear summer sky.

In this chapter:
“It’s odd, but it’s certainly a relief. I feel almost cold now,” Loki admitted, rising his shoulders in a little shiver. That prompted Thor to reach for him, rubbing his open palms up and down Loki’s arms.
“You are still very warm to touch,” Loki smiled, stepping to Thor’s embrace. Thor kissed the top of his head, holding him close for a moment, relief flooding him.
