Imagine that, when Loki was brought to the Avengers tower to carry out his punishment, the other part of it was that he has to learn to love humans, or he can’t ever return to Asgard. Even more than he hates Midgard, he hates its inhabitants. He’d rather die on this wretched place than ever feel anything but hatred towards mortals.
Until you come along. You are the new recruit of the Avengers team, still in training. You are so annoyingly cute and innocent, and always happy and kind, even when Loki snaps at you. The worst part is that you don’t even know how adorable you actually are and Loki finds himself irritated by it. Though he tries to deny it, you start to grow on him. Without noticing, love changes him to a better person and eventually he realises that he has fallen in love with you.
And when we return to dust, share this earth with me ride these winds with me, let us mix together with the rivers that flow, let the sun sift through the cloud cover, as we nestle undisturbed at the bottom of the sea.
