From the Thor script: here.
Can I just take a moment to thank Tom Hiddleston for his excellent acting choices and instinct for characterization and just general existence?
The script would have pushed Loki towards the cackling madman role at the end, gleeful over who knows what. And instead we got heartbreak, anger, desperation, and the god of eyes-always-overbrimming-with-tears.
WOW. Whoa. I think this might be my new favourite post ever.
THAT’S WHAT I CALL GOOD ACTING OH MY GOD!!
Asgard mourning over Loki
This just kills me. Because seriously, is anyone really surprised that Loki completely lost it? Thor and Frigga are literally the only people who show any regret over what happened to him. Odin THREW A FUCKING PARTY. No one gave a shit that Loki had fallen into the darkness, and that he’d fought beside them for thousands of years. They just had a big feast, and that was it.
Compare this to the way everyone reacted when Thor was banished. They knew he wasn’t dead, that he was probably fine somewhere, but all they could think about was how terrible it was and how they needed to get him back, even though it was his own fault that he was banished and it was a lesson he needed to learn. Loki even points this out to them, but they don’t listen to him. None of them ever listened to Loki, even though for the most part he was probably the most clear-headed person in Asgard. Even sabotaging Thor’s coronation was pretty sensible. Yeah, a lot of it came from jealousy and the desire to fuck shit up, but honestly Thor was not ready to be king at that point. That was very obvious. He needed to grow up and learn that war wasn’t a game, and that he couldn’t just do whatever the hell he wanted. So Loki puts it all on hold in typical Loki style, because seriously no one was going to listen to him if he tried to actually point out that Thor wasn’t ready for the crown. He had to take matters into his own hands. All of Asgard treated him like shit. They ignored him and they made constant jibes at him. And then they’re surprised when it turns out he hates them all.
And so the confrontation between Loki and Thor in Avengers breaks my heart, because I don’t think Thor was lying. The thing about Thor is that he’s this big innocent teddy bear who sees everything in the way he wants to, and so he probably does believe everyone saw Loki the way he did, and that they loved him as he did. And that’s why he thought the slights against Loki were ‘imagined’, because he honestly didn’t notice them. Thor just wants everything to be okay, and that’s kind of his downfall with Loki, because he just doesn’t notice all the things that are fucked up in the way Loki is treated.
Loki knows they didn’t mourn. Thor is the one person who cared about him even though he had a completely different skills set from the warriors of Asgard, and even so he’s never going to understand Loki because he refuses to see what Loki has had to put up with all these years.
Also, Odin can suck my dick.
#i love that darcy is proud of this #and she should be #’yes, yes i did taser the man who appeared out of nowhere, who looked like he could beat the shit out of me and my friends, who could be potentially harmful and looked to be drunk, considering he was spouting out shit at the sky to open something called a ‘bifrost.’ #fuck i’d have tasered him too
LET YOUR POWER SHINE

ACTUAL TEARS. You have my actual tears on your hands goddammit.
Only one of you can ascend to the throne. But both of you were born to be kings.
love this for so many reasons #thor probably just found out that bruce turns into the hulk #and he literally met bruce hours ago #and everyone else who has known bruce just sees him as the hulk #but thor sees him as bruce banner #not the monster #he knows bruce somewhere in there#that the hulk isn’t just a mindless beast #and to make this even more feelsy#this is just like how he treats loki #everyone else sees loki as a psychotic menace #and thor is the only one who tries to reason with him instead of just attacking #this is why i hate it when people say thor is just all muscle and looks #he is so much more #he’s the only one who’s given the ‘monsters’ a chance to redeem themselves #and to me #thats one of the most heroic things someone can ever do (via mycroft-queenofcake)
HAVE I MENTIONED LATELY HOW THOR IS MY FAVORITE AVENGER? BECAUSE THOR IS MY FAVORITE AVENGER.
