Loki is dead and no one cares
This is something that has been tearing at my heartstrings a lot lately. When Endgame came out it was revealed that the original Loki would not be returning, that only a version of him from an alternate timeline is still alive. Now of course I was happy that at least one version of him escaped, at first at least, until the realisation hit me.
Our Loki is dead. The Loki we spent years growing to know and love. The Loki we cried and laughed over. The Loki who went from misunderstood villain to tragic hero. OUR LOKI. And no one seems to care.
Suddenly everyone has just chosen this new Loki over him. Every damn post I see is “2012 Loki is alive!!” “My mans escaped with the Tesseract and is living his best life. We stan.” “I can’t believe we get to see this version of Loki again, I’m so happy 😍”
Not a single post I’ve seen has said “I miss you Loki.” “I wish you were still here Loki.” “Why didn’t the sun shine on them again?” “Where are you Loki… Will you ever come back?” None. Not. A single. One.
He died a hero, he died for his brother, he died scared, and no one cares. Because it seems to me like this other Loki is now more important. Our Loki deserves better than to be the second choice, the whole reason he was so messed up was because he was always the second choice. Loki’s army was the only place where he was the number one priority, and now even that has changed. It absolutely breaks my heart.
Loki was the only thing that got me through my depression. I owe him everything, and I know I’m not the only one. So why is no one mourning? Why is no one even the slightest bit thankful for what he did for us? Why has everyone forgotten him?…
He deserves so much better than this. I’m not saying you can’t love the new Loki of course you can, but please, I’m begging you, don’t throw the old one away like he means nothing because you’ve found “a better one”. Remember him.
