I just want to show this to everyone who keeps trying to convince me that Loki is a bad person. No. He’s just so fucking lost. He thought he was an Asgardian prince, but it turns out he’s the son of the leader of the people Asgardian has the worst relationship with. He, as far as he can see, is a monster. He’d always been jealous of Thor for being the favorite, and now it turns out he’s not even Odin’s son.
Think about it, it must be so fucking horrible for him. In Thor, he wants to kill the Jotuns because now more than ever he sees them as monsters, as these horrible things. They’re creatures that need to die because they put Asgard, his home, at risk. It has a special meaning for him because it feels like he has to destroy them because he doesn’t want to be one, he wants to pretend they don’t exist. He blames them.
And then, he’s hanging of the bi-frost, he tells his father how it was all for him, how he could have done it for them, and again he is rejected and denied. You can see a tear rolling down the side of his face, and then- and then he lets go. He’s lost who he is, his family, his entire life has crumbled, it doesn’t look like he’ll ever be redeemed in their eyes, and he lets go, because it’s just too much for anyone to bear.
He survives, and everyone knows that killing an Asgardian is nearly impossible. He tried just about the only way. He’s broken, he’s insane, and I’m pretty sure he really does think we all crave subjugation. It’s how everything works on Asgard; he wants to create another version of his home, where he isn’t some monster. He wants to be the king, wants to be fucking accepted, and at this point just becomes fucking insane.
I have nothing but sympathy and love for this character, and no one can convince me to feel otherwise.
