I think one of the misconceptions about Loki is that he is looking to cause chaos, but rarely have I experienced Loki causing chaos just for the sake of chaos.
Change, chaotic change, serves a purpose as the quickest way to get from point a to b. Or it’s for fun. Or because certain fuckers are asshats and really need to have things go wrong for them. Or because Really, Trust Me, Hold My Beer, This Is Gonna Be Great and you end up with some awesome stuff, or in the same vein it’s “Look these rules suck and if we say, DON’T play by the rules there might be some bumps but it will be totally worth it” and you end up with a foldable ship and a lightning hammer.
And change is fucking scary for a lot of people, especially when the change doesn’t follow rules or connect-the-dots steps or moments to adjust, so really it’s no wonder a lot of people are wary of Loki and I know with all this I sound slightly ridiculous going “No, dude- DUDE. It’s totally worth it. It’s amazing. Just do it it is so much fun oh my gods.” on the subject of working with him.
