Tom you’re the cutest.
Had to share.
Odin’s a dick. you see a reflection of hurt and betrayal and the aftermath of anger and apathy.
I blame everything on Odin’s terrible parenting.
The look of contempt on Odin’s face in that second picture is disgusting.
OUCH THIS HURTS A LOT
I JUST POPPED IN TO QUEUE A FEW THINGS ABOUT THE GOSPEL OF LOKI BY JOANNE HARRIS AND THIS WAS AT THE TOP OF MY DASH AND NOW I’M CRYING
(Dang, that sounded a lot like “I came out here tonight to have a good time and I’m honestly feeling so attacked right now.”)
Two years since the first time I saw Thor. One year since the first inkling of what TDW was going to be like destroyed my ability to can. And these damn movies STILL break my heart. There should be warning labels. Marvel should be paying for Prozac, therapy and chocolate for every single one of us.
Your fangirls have gathered on that hill over there, sire.
That… is a lot of fangirls. Are you sure they’re all mine?
He’s like a turtle that was flipped onto his shell.
Magic, Knifes, the Staff and trickery.
Fighting with intelligence and strengh.
or why do I find this arousing
This is…so…hot. <3
Loki fights without wasting motion and also fights EXTREMELY close range. For someone who uses magic while they fight, look how close he gets to his opponent even using his staff. His preferred weapons are knives and he uses even shorter ones than Frigga does and he tends to use an icepick grip more often than not, which generally indicates either a knife fighter who has no experience whatsoever, or one who is extremely experienced and using that grip in a sophisticated series of attacks. Loki is the latter considering close quarters combat requires precision, speed, and the ability to make split second decisions because there isn’t any room for error in fighting that close.
Consider that in addition to the fact that he’s often multitasking by spell casting at the same time he’s fighting…
Loki is a lot of unsavory things, but he’s also a warrior. Thor wasn’t letting his little brother tag along on adventures out of pity. Loki earned that place by being deadly whether the other warriors really understood HOW deadly his style is or not.
“Up until the late 1980s, the consensus amongst most martial arts experts was that the icepick grip was the mark of an amateur, and that one who chose to attack using such a grip was easily disarmed….in the hands of a reasonably proficient fighter (such as Eskrima practitioners), a knife held in this fashion is remarkably fluid and can deliver multiple cuts from a variety of angles simply by manipulating the wrist. Such flexibility of technique make it extremely dangerous to attempt to immobilize the knife hand by grasping the wrist, as it can quickly circle around and do damage to tendons, nerves, or blood vessels." - wikipedia
(What does it mean when you fact check one unreliable website with another unreliable website. Whatever. I’m trying to be more skeptical.)
1. I love that this is accurate meta.
2. I love learning a new thing.
3. I love that this fighting style hella suits Loki’s characterization. An old school fighter sees the grip and thinks this’ll be too easy. But then he tries to immobilize the wrist and boom an unexpected manipulation leaves him suffering a lot of nasty damage. As if Loki didn’t only just develop a complex about being under-estimated, he made it useful by incorporating it into to his technique.
My heroes <3
"There were days when I longed for the suit [that Clark Gregg got to wear as Agent Coulson] – Dolce and Gabbana. In the museum [scene in Germany, Loki had] three hours in a nice suit.” — Tom Hiddleston
