hate thor all you want. whatever. i don’t understand how you manage it, but go right ahead. but if you hate thor for the sake of loki, do not ever trivialise the [admittedly unhealthy] level of co-dependency they share. do not ever say that loki would be better off if thor were dead. if you know anything about loki, you’d know that, despite everything, the last thing loki wants is for thor to really die. in fact, i’ll give you a direct quote from blood brothers (the synopsis, but no less canon) ”The idea of a world without Thor is bleak to him. What would he live for?” there you go. there it is. everything magnificent and endlessly fascinating and tauntingly vulnerable that exists in the universe? no, doesn’t interest loki. doesn’t matter. if thor isn’t there, loki sees no reason to stay alive. there are so many things in the nine realms that loki could occupy his time with. so many things that would fascinate him for eons; and yet if thor is not alive, even as his enemy, loki cares for none of it. the concept of a universe without thor is unthinkable to him. without thor, loki has no reason to live. that’s it. that’s what it all boils down to. people harp on about how there is no loki without thor. but they say it because they mean it. if thor is gone, loki truly and honestly sees no point in existing.
