THANKS A LOT
Part of me wants to read this scene as Loki not knowing he’d survive/come back, just so that he could have that memory of Thor being there with him and reassuring him untainted by any trace of possible guilt over it being a deception.
This stupid movie took a wrecking ball to my heart.
I liked myself for some time now but I think I’m falling in love with me. I no longer want to be other people. I want to be greater versions of myself.
If I had not taken you in, you would not be here now to hate me.
Crap. Look at his face. He can still be hurt by the old bastard.
This scene was possibly the hardest scene in the movie for me to get through, every time. Even worse than Frigga’s funeral and Loki’s death. Hiddleston’s acting is amazing, but heartbreaking - the tiniest changes on his face say volumes. I wanted to reach through the screen and hug him.
I also hate how this entire set-up on Odin’s part is clearly his way of also punishing Frigga for daring to ask even the tiniest thing for Loki. I mean, tell me that forbidding Frigga from seeing her son isn’t punishment for her just as much as it is for him. Go on, tell me that. - And she doesn’t even get to have a proper moment with him before they cart him off. Odin has her (and only her) sent out of the room after she exchanges one line with Loki.
I think the only thing that has kept me going is the AU headfic I’ve been writing for the past two weeks where Frigga teams up with Loki to break him out and they go to Vanaheim. (In my headcanon she’s Vanir.) Because the filmmakers seem content to rip my heart out of my chest and stomp repeatedly on it where Frigga and Loki are concerned.
