Okay I know everyone is about their “Loki being eternally triggered from Hulk” jokes but it’s actually I think the complete opposite
The whole set-up of the fight is a distinct parallel to Gladiator fights in the Colosseum from the Roman Empire era.
And we already know that Thor is playing for the Grandmaster.
So we can easily assume this booth-thing balcony is where the the owners sit
Which means he
is playing for him
So like, I don’t know how that’s working, maybe Loki promised to help Bruce get back to Midgard Earth if he helped Loki win against the Grandmaster because he has something Loki wants? no idea really, but hey, tHAT’S JUST A THEORY, A MARVEL THEORY, ANNNNNNND CUT.

Imagine: complaining about Loki's yellow cape to Tom
You glared down at your phone screen, eyes locked onto the offensive yellow of Loki’s cape in the early looks at Thor: Ragnarok. Most people thought you would have known all about it, as you were Tom Hiddleston’s girlfriend and a rising actress, but you had no such luck. You were discussing a contract with Marvel, and while you tried to get information about the third Thor movie, Tom made sure you heard nothing. He wanted the movie to be a surprise for you, as he knew you had a weakness for Loki.
As you walked along the sidewalk, you regularly glanced down at the photo. Tom looked fantastic as Loki, but you dearly hoped that the other side of the cape was green, or else there was going to be a mountain of angry letters for the costume designer. You made a mental note to stay involved in the designing of your character, if you and Marvel came to a contract agreement. You could hear the occasional murmur or camera click as you walked through the light crowd, which drew your attention away from your phone. The odd feeling of being recognized in the street momentarily distracted you, until your eyes landed on your destination: a lovely little teahouse.
You tried not to storm in, but as you were gracefully seated in the back room, your anger was apparent on your face. Tom had arrived before you, and when he looked up to your not-so-smiling expression, he knew that you were one of many who had seen the recently revealed Loki first-look. He chuckled nervously when you sat across from him, huffing lowly when your phone buzzed. You turned it off, before glaring at Tom, who offered you an apologetic smile.
“My dear, whatever is the matter?” He asked, ever the gentleman. He knew exactly what was wrong- you could tell- but he had always been gracious towards you. The sentiment melted away some of your anger, reminding you why you loved this dorky, glorious man… but you weren’t about to let him get away so easily.
“What’s the matter?” You began, giving Tom a moment to steel himself for the flood. “Loki’s cape, that’s the matter! I love you, but did you say nothing about it? Did anyone try to stop the fiend who calls themself a costume designer? It’s… yellow!” You stated, your hands swirling in elaborate gestures to aid your argument. “Loki’s signature color is green, and his palette is green, black, and gold. Yellow is not a part of that combination, and his green cape held so much… meaning! As the complimentary color to red, his cape represented his separation from Thor as a person… Two brothers, who were very much so opposites. Is yellow the complimentary color to red? No!” You ranted, not even looking at Tom at this point. If you had looked at his face, instead of focusing on your hands and memories from the MCU Loki scenes, you would have seen his struggle at holding back a massive grin.
“Darling, [Y/N], I am simply an actor. I don’t make the final decisions for Loki-” He began, but bit his tongue when you sent him a steely glare. Your nose was scrunched up in frustration, and he couldn’t hold back any longer. He let out his signature chuckle, closing his eyes and dipping his head. His contagious laughter got under your skin, soothing your glare and pulling soft chuckles from your throat. A soft smile grew on your lips, and you shook your head lightly at Thomas. “Love, you are a treasure! I’m sorry you’re upset about his, or rather, my cape, but I must say… your reaction was adorable, and absolutely worth it.” He noted with a cheery grin.
You pursed your lips, and despite still holding resentment towards the color choice, you melted under that smile. Thomas could drive you a little crazy sometimes, but he wouldn’t have been the man you fell in love with if he had been any different.
Imagine Loki spots you walking down a street and thinks your beautiful and can’t stop staring. He bumps into a little old lady and accidentally knocks her on her but. He can’t apologize enough, but after helping her up she, starts whacking him with her bag and yelling at him. You see it and come running over as you and your Grandmother had only separated temporarily while shopping and were meeting at a coffee shop two doors over.
“Nana! What are you doing?”
“This big idiot knocked me over!” Loki gives you one of his panty melting smiles while shaking your hand.
“Hello, I’m Loki.” For a moment, you almost forget she’s there until she smacks you in the arm.
“Uh Nana, this is Loki.” She narrows her eyes at him.
“Really madam, I do apologize.” You smile back at him without breaking eye contact as a little flush of heat courses through you.

Additional Notes :: I remember reading somewhere that Asgardian women (or Norse goddesses?) don’t have cycles, so I ran with it. I might do another part to this, but I’m not sure. For now, it’s just a silly little oneshot.
When I see people calling Lotor space Loki that’s odd to me. Loki’s already from Space, so calling Lotor space Loki sounds weird. More like, Half Galra Loki or Purple Loki lol.
I can see the parallels though: Loki is a shapeshifter. Lotor is probably a shapeshifter. Loki knows Magic. Lotor possibly, potentially does too. Loki is calculating, ruthless and out for his father’s throne, which he currently has. Lotor looks like he’ll be calculating, a tactical genius, ruthless and now has his father’s throne himself. The swept back hair, the bod.
Honestly, I’ve always thought this was the other way around. I’ve always thought movie Loki’s look was inspired by 80′s Lotor so for me, this is like the source of that look coming back to claim his rightful place lol.
