Thor is an arrogant prince who will inherit a throne to the Asgardian kingdom in a few weeks. Peter Quill is a commander of the Asgardian army who has been pining for a prince for quite some time.
One day, Thor invites Peter to hunt with him and Quill immediately accepts an invitation. During the hunt, both men learn something about each other: Peter learns that Thor isn’t actually arrogant and self-centred and a future king learns that Peter isn’t childish and full of himself as he seems he is. However, their hunt turns upside down when they get attacked by a bear. The animal almost got his claws on Thor when Peter protects him and saves them both. Both men come back to the castle late at night and Thor invites Peter to his chambers. As Peter closes the doors to the prince’s room, he immediately gets kissed by Thor. They spend the night together, not worrying about anything.
Thor’s coronation is in two days and the future king couldn’t be happier. What he started with Quill, grew into the relationship, even though they keep it a secret until Thor’s coronation. Peter couldn’t be happier as well. He thought that he would have just a fling with Thor but all doubts went away when one night Thor said that he loves Quill. However, one evening courtier caught them and was furious and disappointed in Thor. Next day after they got caught, Thor was told that if he wants to become a king he has to marry someone of royal blood, not some commoner, especially a man who can’t give Thor a future heir to the throne. Thor is devasted but he realises he doesn’t have any other choice- if he steps down from the throne, the kingdom will be doomed. So the same day, he proposes to Jane Foster. As they kiss, Peter catches them, feeling how his heart breaks into a thousand pieces. He runs away, never looking back.
It’s been 5 years since Peter’s departure. During those years, Thor lived in devastation, acknowledging his mistake of letting Peter go. He never married Jane and just put his soul into batteling other kingdoms which wanted Asgard to bend the knee to them. After another battle, Thor enters his chambers and sees Peter, who he taught he will never see. The former commander didn’t change at all. As Thor went for a hug, Peter backed away, looking with hurt in his eyes at Thor. When Peter saw Thor, he couldn’t believe it’s the same prince, now the king is in front of him- he aged a lot as it’s been not five but fifteen years. They tried to talk about what happened but their conversation turned into yelling within few minutes. Thor asked why Peter decided to return, Peter explained that he couldn’t find a place in this world so he thought that maybe he would find it in Asgard, maybe even with Thor. As Thor said that they could never be together because of the throne, Peter coldly said that Thor is still an arrogant prick, even when he has the power in his hands. When Quill left Thor’s chambers, both men noticed that they started crying.
It’s been almost a year since Peter stayed in the castle, becoming a commander once again. Thor during that time tried everything to get Peter’s attention. He still loved Quill and couldn’t lose his love again. The king was affectionate with Peter, taking him on the walks, even hunting with him again. One evening, Thor invited Peter to the balcony where he apologised for hurting Peter and asking for another chance. Peter loved Thor still, so he couldn’t say no, especially after he saw how Thor was trying to win his love again. After so long, Peter finally allowed Thor to step into his personal space and kiss him. They were finally reunited. The next day, Peter got invited to the Great Hall, where everyone was gathered. Thor was sitting on his throne and when he saw Peter he stood up, walking towards Peter. When he was near, Thor got on one knee and asked Peter to marry him. At that moment, Thor didn’t care about someone else’s opinion because he won’t lose his love once again.
“Thor, are you sure? You said it yourself…”
“If someone is against our union, they will have to go through me, through the king himself.”
“You know, you’re still that prince that I knew, just wiser.”
I hope you will help me to finally become a king this kingdom deserves.”
“Oh, I will, since know you won’t get rid of me that easily.”
“I wouldn’t wish that in the thousand years, love.”
