#this scene amazes me #did no one at any time say ‘hey guys this scene is getting a bit heavy on the subtext’ #’could you two try to look more like you’re just friends and less like your heart is breaking?’ #’misha do you really need to look at him so longingly?’ #i can’t believe the crew make episodes like this and are surprised when people ship destiel #because i’ve seen canon romantic couples look at each other with less love in their eyes #and i don’t think i’ve ever seen anyone look more lovingly at someone
youre practically a serial killer youre not supposed to be this cute
Yeah Dean is way too cute.
Heat Exhaustion Symptoms
- Muscle cramps
- Pale skin
- Profuse sweating
- Sunken, dark eyes from dehydration
Do I need to remind you what he looked like during this entire scene?
He’s sweaty, his blood circulation isn’t working well due to vasoconstriction (namely, look at how pale his lips are,) and he’s got dark, sunken in eyes. Now we’ve got a point in which he trips and almost falls for some inexplicable reason. Well, let me ask you this.
How do you torture a frost giant?
Whedon wouldn’t just put in clips like this for no reason. He’s trying to show us something. The Loki we see here in this scene is not a healthy Loki, it’s a Loki who is weak and pale and probably focused on just staying conscious—a Loki who has probably been tortured by Thanos into submission and then sent out to do his dirty work for him, that way Thanos will never get the blame. Loki is just the puppet in the grand master scheme of things. Thanos is using him.
The Loki we see in Thor is radically different from the Loki we see in The Avengers. Sure, post-Thor, Loki is emotionally unstable, and maybe a little nuts, but he wasn’t a murderer. The only reason he went after Jotunheim is because he was having identity issues. Murder wasn’t something that was normal in his repertoire, yet we see him doing it frequently in The Avengers. The Loki we see at the end of Thor doesn’t want to live, let alone take over an entire realm that he had no interest in before. Something drastic must have happened between the two movies to have made Loki have such a huge character change.
It’s said that Thanos caught/rescued Loki after he fell from the Bifrost. Well, what did he do after that? Thanos is known for having telepathic powers, and since he had to have caught Loki knowing who he was and how strong he was, he likely broke into Loki’s mind to find out all of his fears and weaknesses. And once he found out all of Loki’s darkest secrets, it was easy to break him. He and the Chitauri took the Loki we saw in Thor and tortured and corrupted him until he was warped into their own personal demigod, ready to do their bidding. Why do you think Loki spouts off all these quotes about how “Freedom is life’s great lie,” and “In the end, you will always kneel”? He’s projecting.
So, when he trips? That’s the aftershocks of torture. That’s a Loki, weakened and struggling to stay upright, pushing forward through the pain because, otherwise?
“You will long for something as sweet as pain.”
He has to keep going because the alternative isn’t a question.
NEVER STOP REBLOGGING LOKISCIENCE
How do you know that much about my past, you foolish creature? WHO are you?
And no one. No one. Will ever be able to convince me that the marks on his head in this gif;
were not scorch/burn marks. Especially weighing the fact this segment was directed by Joss Whedon.
If only we could get someone to 100% confirm all of this, its so sad but everything adds up and makes so much sense. I’ve watched avengers again and again and every time I see it, it just becomes more apparent he was tortured. I’d never considered the idea of heat torture, but it makes sense because he is evidently a frost giant. Gosh this post makes me so sad for Loki, but so happy at how committed this fandom is. I love it, and I totally hate it at the same time.Who me? Oh just CRYING FOREVER.
It was explained in the art book. The writers said that the staff absorbs his life force every time he uses it, and also he just ‘went through terrible things’ to learn his new magic and obtain more knowledge.
Dont forget to mention the conversation he has with Thor in Avengers!! the “I have changed Odinson, in my exile” I dont remember the exact quotes but he talks about how he has seen and experienced horrible things since his fall.
