keening about thor 2

hard to keep the rainclouds out, 2134 words, jane foster/thor (+loki in absentia), post thor 2, warnings for some discussion of suicide ehhhh idk what I’m doing but I’ve wanted to write this fic for a while

Thor did not talk about Loki much.

No, that was an understatement. Thor didn’t talk about Loki at all. It was one of those big, quiet,empty spaces between them that just didn’t get crossed, and Jane knew it was there and knew she should do something about it but didn’t know how, exactly. Especially not when a stupid part of her felt guilty, sometimes.

And what would she even say, anyway? She didn’t know anything about Loki except what he’d done to Erik and New York, except the gleam in his eye when he’d smiled at her and the way he’d watched her on Svartalfheim. Hungry and furious and searching in a way that made Jane think of bugs pinned to velvet.

certifiedmomfriend  asked:

What do you think about Loki in Thor 2? I saw your response to him in the Avengers and I'm really curious.

This is a really broad question, but I guess in relation to what I was talking about in the post about the Avengers you’re probably asking about Loki’s mental space in Thor 2? (I’m serious about that “do you want me to trashblog or something” comment I swear you’re just enabling all my worst impulses.)

But anyway - I’ve talked before about how I feel like in the opening scene of Thor 2 when Loki’s facing Odin he’s very much in a (somewhat manufactured) state of “well it’s done and nothing matters anymore lol” which is what creates his general flippancy and carelessness. I think Loki expects to be executed at that point and it genuinely takes him by surprise that doesn’t happen, and it’s genuinely pretty awful to be locked away and what he perceives as being forgotten. 

From there I think he ends up both stewing in a lot of bitterness and anger that means his conversations with Frigga are unproductive and he doesn’t have a whole lot of interest in changing - he also doesn’t see any point in changing, I think, because he’s going to be stuck in this cage for the rest of forever, so why does it matter. 

But then Frigga dies and Thor comes to him for help and there’s this dizzy combination of manic energy because he’s free and also a sudden focused anger because of Frigga’s death, mingled with anger at himself and guilt because he was indirectly the cause of death for one of the few people he felt mattered, on some level. 

tl;dr, Loki’s kind of all over the place in Thor 2, but at the moment he goes after Algrim and “dies,” I think it’s a genuine act of “fuck no Frigga is dead, not Thor too” as opposed to a calculated, planned move. In Thor 2 Loki is still very much reacting as opposed to acting, and a lot of it is on a very emotional level that isn’t wholly rational. There’s still a lot of bitterness, I think, but it’s become less outwardly obvious and less…wild than in the Avengers. 

I wouldn’t necessarily say that putting Loki in a cell was a positive move, but I do think it had some positive side effects, because while there’s a certain toxicity to Loki being alone with his thoughts it also effectively removes him from being able to exacerbate his own problems.

Just the same, I’m never going to endorse “solitary confinement forever!!” as a lenient punishment as some people have, and I do think it was Odin’s reaction of anger (but still unwillingness to kill his son) as opposed to something meant to help.

the world seems not the same; 785 words, thor, post-thor 2, lise does the thing where she takes a break from her major projects to write pointless sadfic inspired while driving and also by overabundance of feelings and remembering this post

Thor hesitated a long moment before letting himself into Loki’s rooms. He half expected a sting, or perhaps to walk through the door into a different room entirely, one of the many tricks Loki had used to keep Thor out of his rooms when he was uninvited. Nothing happened, though. Thor remembered Loki saying that most spells vanished with their caster’s…

Thor swallowed hard past the lump in his throat and stepped inside.

so about that odinson roadtrip into valhalla fixit fic

Thor woke up in the middle of the night with Loki standing over him and looking powerfully displeased. “Wake up,” he said, snappishly. “I require your assistance. Regrettably.” Thor stared at him, helplessly. Loki made an impatient noise. “Yes, yes, I’m alive, can you skip the hysterics?”

Thor swallowed. “This is no dream,” he said. Loki rolled his eyes and smiled, sharp and nasty.

“Have you been dreaming about me that much, brother?”

Thor reached out and grabbed his arm. He could feel a pulse under the skin, solid flesh under his fingers, and let go, drawing back. “You’re alive,” he said, a little hoarsely.

“I thought I said to-”

Thor hauled back and punched Loki in the face.

this is going to be so much fun

so a few more thoughts from my thor 2 watch today

  • I feel like I haven’t talked about the fact that Jane wears Frigga’s armor after she dies and I have feelings about this.
  • and also how I’m totally writing at least a drabble of Sif & Frigga interaction based on that one shot during the funeral.
  • also Thor’s casual “Frigga told them to us” referring to the stories about the Dark Elves like that casual “us” aaaaaah help
  • the little twitch of Loki!Odin’s eyebrow when Thor says “Loki died with honor” I want to know what Loki’s feelings were doing there I really want to know
writeinthehead replied to your post: writeinthehead replied to your post: “But what…

Now Thor’s capes smell like big bro AND Mama’s flowers & Loki steals it & curls up in it when he’s all alone at night after pretending to be Odin all day. Thor’s going spare bc missing capes almost always meant LOKI was upset & jfc is it a SIGN

sdlkfjsldkfjffffff okay okay I surrender (maybe) and Thor is just like SERIOUSLY WHAT IS GOING ON HERE and at this point starts investigating methods to get to one of the underworlds because there must be a way somewhere

and Odin!Loki finds out (because of course he watches Thor all the time like a total stalker because reasons) and goes and is all “you cannot go gallivanting off to the land of the dead after your worthless good for nothing not-brother it is too dangerous”

and Thor is like “WELL THAT’S TOO BAD cause I’m pretty sure I’m going to do it anyway”

and Odin!Loki is like “I FORBID IT seriously Thor don’t be a dumb you’ll get yourself killed

and Thor is in a right temper at this point and is like “you can’t stop me what are you going to do banish me again I need to know what’s going on and I can take care of myself”

and Odin!Loki is getting progressively more frustrated and eventually just goes “norns Thor how did you ever survive without any sense of self preservation!!!” and wait

there is something curiously familiar about that particular tone of voice and how it doesn’t sound quite right coming from Odin

con-affetto-kiko  asked:


I know right I was in denial I am going to write fix it fic I am going to write fix it fic ten different ways so help me god I am going to write Loki and Thor going on a road trip into Valhalla to get her back I am serious about this guys

I AM NEVER GOING TO BE OKAY AGAIN??? I JUST!!!!! that was the moment where I just broke because ugh I can’t I can’t I can’t and just yes Loki choosing what Thor’s last view of him potentially ever would be and that was what he chose and I just 

leave me here to literally die I’m not even kidding okay I haven’t even started here just wait for the headcanon explosion that’s going to come out of this just wait fuuuuCKKKK

so on second watch through the line that stuck out to me for some reason was the “possibly” when Thor asks if Loki is mad and I don’t know how I can articulate my thoughts without sounding like an actual absurdity, but it ties in with the manic energy he has throughout after he’s been freed and it just makes me wonder what kind of mental place Loki has been in even before Frigga’s death

also just noticing how obsessed Loki still is with Odin and Odin’s approval and Odin’s reaction and seriously a big part of Loki is still looking for Odin to acknowledge/approve/notice/something and it just hurts me obscurely because Loki Frigga loves you, Thor loves you, stop obsessing about how your fucked up father figure is at the very least emotionally constipated

also the “your birthright was to die!” line was much stronger this time because I remember seeing conversation about it on my dash and I am just hella creeped out by all the implications of “your life only exists because of my mercy, The Lord Giveth and the Lord Taketh” sort of rhetoric of “I could have snuffed you out at any time and been within my rights” and how often has Loki himself thought this, probably a lot

“if I am for the axe, then for mercy’s sake, swing it” indeed

so many thor 2 emotions

I know that casualdorkpatrol and I are friends because immediately after watching Thor 2 one of the first things she said was “so all of the Jane and Loki friendship” and I was like “I KNOW RIGHT” and basically why does the world not give me weird Jane and Loki friendship all over the place do I have to do everything myself

(totally going to find a way to write at least one conversation between them during the timeline of Thor 2 somehow somehow I just want the thiiiiiiing)

anonymous asked:

road to nowhere?

hahahahah okay. “Road to Nowhere” is the post-Thor 2 fic fix it where Thor and Loki go on a roadtrip to Valhalla to get Frigga back and no I’m not kidding that’s basically exactly what it is. And also a lot of Thor being (understandably) pissed at Loki for letting him think he was dead (again) and Loki being his generally lovely self and Not Mentioning the fact that he spent the last interval pretending to be Odin, just by the way. 

(I’m currently divided on whether he let Odin out of wherever he was keeping him before taking off or just kind of vanished and is letting Asgard freak out about how Odin just disappeared and no one knows where he is??? We’ll see where I get on that.)

At this point it is basically brotherly-bonding roadtrip times with abundant snark. 

And apparently there was going to be some “world where emotions” if I can ever figure out what the fuck that was even supposed to mean. 

My favorite part of this one is the part where Loki shows up in the middle of the night all “THOR IT TURNS OUT I NEED YOUR HELP, UNFORTUNATELY” and after Thor affirms that this is in fact real and Loki is in fact alive he just goes ahead and punches Loki in the face. 

thescentofwhiteroses  asked:

DID YOU SEE THAT ONE OF THE THOR 2 DELETED SCENES IS GOING TO BE THOR AND FRIGGA DISCUSSING LOKI? I AM EXCITE. There are some other scenes I was hoping would be on there too but unfortunately it looks like we won't get those. ALSO WE ONLY HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL FEB 25TH

DUDE I DID NOT SEE THIS AND FUUUUUCK. does want that does want all of the Thor and Frigga interaction and the Frigga and Thor discussing Loki and sdlkfjsldkfj (though of course if it doesn’t suit my headcanon I can ignore the shit out of it, that’s the nice thing about deleted scenes)

february 25th I’m writing that one down

between all the comics starting in february and now the thor 2 dvd maybe february will be a good month for once! :D 

ligayaharukadiwata  asked:

I hope you've seen Thor: The Dark World already. There's a slightly shippy moment (that some fic writer on AO3 exploited for the angst factor) featuring a cameo where both actors had two/too much fun. XD

wait wait wait someone wrote a fic and it wasn’t me?? SHIT WHERE someone send me to this is it any good I’m sorry I’m such a snob about my small pairings

I have of course seen it and no one can take my thoughts about it away from me that Loki chose specifically to imitate Steve, that the way he went about it has that edge of viciousness that he shows especially with those (like Thor) that he has a complicated envy/respect/admiration relationship with you can’t take my fantasies from me

con-affetto-kiko replied to your post: when frigga died i was like “THAT WAS THE ONE FANON I DIDN’T WANT TO BECOME CANON WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME” and then then then RECONCILIATION. because Loki got to pick his “last words” to Thor and they were DESIGNED TO MEND THE RIFT BETWEEN THEM. SAID THAT LOKI HAD DIED FOR THOR, AND ONLY THOR, AND MY TEARS WILL FILL THE THEATER



steelplatedhearts  asked:

Dude literally the second Steve showed up my brain instantly went "LISE IS GONNA LOVE THIS"

hahahahahahaha I AM PREDICTABLE AND I AM SO TOTALLY OKAY WITH THIS look I take what I can get and the fact that Loki chose to impersonate Steve and just the fact that there was something approaching a connection there and I am a pathetic, pathetic creature and you know what

anonymous asked:

So i just finished watching Thor 2 and i think you'd understand when i say that i'm emotionally compromised because thor thought loki just kinda diED IN HIS ARMS AND THEN THE NOISE HE MADE AFTER WAS JUST

thor 2 came out about four months ago and I’m still emotionally compromised about thor 2 so you know anon I’m not judging

i mean no fucking wonder thor wants to leave asgard having just watched his mother and brother die and realized that his father isn’t the always-right person he thought he was 

like much as I talk about my suffering for loki (and I have a lot of suffering for loki)

poor thor

yourboobstits  asked:

just saw thor: the d. do you think frigga projected herself into loki's cell, or did loki create her image and make up their entire conversation?

I have waffled back and forth on this? but ultimately came down on the side of Frigga projecting herself into the cell, because then it is a foreshadowing of her magic as we see it used later (with the illusion of Jane) and that just makes more narrative sense? and also hurts more because ahahahahaha the last conversation Loki has with his mommy is telling her that she’s not his mother!!!! and then telling Kursed!Algrim where to go!!! and wow I just love suffering in my media

steelplatedhearts  asked:

okay so if having Loki in his mind drove Erik to strip naked and do science at stonehenge, what the shit did it do to Clint? Is he parading around nude in Pepper's board meetings? Do they have to call Natasha to get him out of trees? these are the important questions.

pfffffffft omg I mean I think Clint is better at repressing? and I also think that Erik got hit with the Tesseract juice a lot harder (and also spent more time with it I mean the fact that he’s weird intimate with that thing is…I have thoughts about) but on the other hand

Clint just not wearing pants in Avengers team meetings

Clint not wearing pants

I’m okay with this
