#just look at tony’s face #fucking look at his expression #steve’s kind of just. staring #and tony’s fucking heartbroken #you can see it in his eyes. his heart? it’s broken #all over the fucking place
#because he knows what bruce means #I think that if tony wasn’t so damn stubborn and had that ‘there’s always a way out’ thing carved so deep inside of him #he would’ve killed himself as well #what do you think that his reckless behaviour means? #he’s got a deathwish largest than the god damned stark tower #so he understands bruce and not only on that feeling #but also on being looked at as if you were a threat #unable to control yourself #a mindless beast#because let’s face it #no one there ever assumes that tony actually has the intelligence he possess #they’re constantly pointing out his flaws and looking past his good intentions #just like they do with bruce #everyone sees the hulk and no one fucking waits to think that the guy is fucking mortified of what he’s turned into
Dean in Purgatory (7.23)
And then I lost it.
Thor: I though you dead.
Loki: Did you mourn?
Thor: We all did. Our father…
Loki: Your father. He did tell you my true parentage, did he not?
And it all comes back to family for Loki. Rage over not having one. Rage over the one he had slighting him. And it twisted into something horrible. But that one pause at the end when Thor tells him to come home. It was one of the moments that you could see the madness clear for just a moment and a man who wants a home and a family come back out. It was tempting for just that moment. This is why Loki lacks conviction. He lacks that firm, fixed belief that he’s good enough to rule the world and that’s what he wants, because that’s NOT what he wants. What he wants is to be loved by his family and valued and he’s too far gone for that now.
