do you ever feel like you look good
you go somewhere
and then you see beautiful girls
and you realize you’re just a lonely potato
#i honestly can’t handle the pain in thor’s eyes #he started off in ‘thor’ like a kicked puppy #and now he just seems… numb #like he’s past the shock and the anger and the sadness and now there’s just nothing left #and loki must sense it even though it’s clear that he still longs for vengeance #he knows he’s pushed too far so he simply holds the tesseract without a fuss #with a look that almost says that loki knows thor’s had enough #for now at least
These tags exactly. I know I’ve said it before, but there’s a reason I write Thor the way I do. I could talk for ages and ages about the way I characterise him and what’s made him that way. And about the way I write Loki’s reactions to it. I think Loki really does expect Thor to still be aggressive and angry and arrogant and everything he was before. And I think part of the reason Loki averts his eyes here is because he just plain doesn’t want to think about how much Thor’s been through, because that means not thinking about everything HE’S been through, and Loki, let’s face it, is above all else a self-centred brat. Can’t go thinking about the people around him or he might accidentally develop empathy.
I constantly check my phone for messages, then I remember:
