Yes, I want one!
I want to write a fanfic about this…
Is it “I thought you were dead” fic? Because…that’s a natural fit. :D
Like I’m pretty sure this is going to happen in the next month or so of their lives. Although personally I hope Loki does something new with his hair in the meantime.
“After all this time, now you come to visit me, brother. Why? To mock?” – Loki (Tom Hiddleston)
What was your favorite Loki moment from the trailer for Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World?
Is this, like, an actual still from the movie? So like, instead of messy-haired Loki slouching around rebelliously from the trailer, Loki is sitting in prison neatly reading a book and looking sort of embarrassed to be caught at it? This makes me extremely happy.
Los Angeles Times: You have been in the mindset of the character Loki for awhile now with Thor 2 coming up. Is that weird? ( X ) at 0:52
1. This is amazing.
2. Tom Hiddleston is perfect.
3. Man, I was hoping Loki would be less sad in this movie. Guess I’m SOL.
ETA: Oh, this is from the Avengers premiere. Was Thor 2 even written yet? Maybe there’s still hope…
From episode 2x06, “New Haven Can Wait.” Notice Thor never actually wears HIS helmet. Did they have to like, design personalized helmets at their bar mitzvahs or something but you only actually have to wear it at state occasions? But Loki loves his and wears it all the time and Thor just does not get it.
This one’s from episode 1x14, “The Blair Bitch Project.” Aw, Thor, Loki knows your hair looks great, he’s just being mean.
So I have four beautiful pictures to share with you…the BFF (varlandgear) and I were talking about how Thor and Loki are really a lot like Blair and Serena…and then this happened! Thor and Loki screencaps captioned with Gossip Girl dialogue. She calls it…Gossip Gods. This one is from episode 1x04, “Bad News Blair.” Sorry Steve, you get to be Dan!
(Some of the dialogue was actually TOO CLOSE to even be funny, for example this:
SERENA: So we good now, we square?
BLAIR: No. Because nothing I do will ever be as bad as what you did to me.
SERENA: Look, I’m asking you please. I’ll stop if you will.
BLAIR: You’re just saying that because today, you lost. And you’re going to keep losing. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a future to get back to.
There’s not even a joke to making Thor and Loki say that! It’s just something they’d say. I HAVE A FUTURE TO GET BACK TO. ♥ Blair ♥)
THAT PAUSE. It kills me. He just wants it so bad. ME TOO, BUDDY. ME TOO.
There’s something I’ve been thinking about recently, and that’s “bad boys.” It’s something I hear regularly when I tell people about my crushes on various fictional villains, bad guys, etc. (Spike, Lex Luthor, Loki, Iago): “I’ve just never gotten the bad boy thing.” (It’s almost always people who don’t share it that describe it that way.) And I guess there’s nothing factually wrong with that characterization, I guess you could say I have a “bad boy thing,” but to me it feels like a misreading of what appeals to me about the characters. To me (and I’m ready to be corrected) “bad boy” suggests the thrill of danger, driving too fast, leather jackets, letting your hair down and doing things your mother told you not to. I guess to me, a bad boy thing sounds fun. My crush on Han Solo, for example, is a bad boy thing. My crush on Loki isn’t, and having talked to a lot of people (and read stories by a lot of people) who also love Loki, I think for most of them, it isn’t.
It frustrates me that people see women loving a character who’s self-destructive, self-hating, deeply unhappy, doesn’t feel like he fits in anywhere, yearns for love, yearns to be whole, lashes out when he’s angry and he’s always angry, is basically just one giant scream of lonely resentful pain, and they say “Oh, well, women love a bad boy.” Plenty of women adore that character because they identify with him. I don’t know, maybe Kevin Feige knows that. Maybe I just wish we could come up with a way to talk about female sexuality that doesn’t feel trivializing. But I know that describing my connection with Loki’s character as being about his “dark sexiness” feels kind of insulting. (Which doesn’t mean I wouldn’t hit that. I totally would! But…)
What do you think? Do you have a bad boy thing? What does that mean to you?
