Seeing the things people say when they defend Mon-Hell or the Karamel ship is hauntingly familiar to any veteran of Loki’s Resistance. *shudder*

I really feel for the Supergirl fandom now. We fans of Loki, Tony Stark, Sherlock and Captain America aren’t the only ones being screwed by TPTB.

Supergirl’s TPTB are fully aware that almost all their viewers hate Mon-Hell, and yet they’re bringing him back for another season of being an abusive boyfriend to a feminist icon.

And if any of my fellows in Loki’s Resistance was wondering where the trolls who used to harass us so ferociously have gone? (Not that they’ve left us entirely in peace, but they devote a lot less time to web-stalking and flaming us these days. I assume they’ll resume after Ragnarok gives them new material.) Now we know: After a detour through comics Captain America fandom to chastise anyone who said that making Steve Rogers a Nazi was a bad idea, they apparently went to Supergirl fandom because the show kindly offered them a slave owning abusive intended future dictator to defend.

Thor 1: We’re telling you up front, Loki is a terrible person. Awful. What an evil villain.
Loki: *does heroic and sympathetic stuff*
Thor 1: Psyche! See what we did there? We had the villain do something good! Betcha didn’t see that coming!
Avengers: Loki is a villain. Terrible person. Pure evil.
Loki: *saves literally everybody*
Avengers: Psyche! We got you again! Fooled you!
Thor 2: Loki really is evil. He’s probably done tons of evil stuff we never got around to filming. Such evil. Very villain.
Loki: *saves everybody, allows his enemies to live and thrive*
Thor 2: WAS THAT EDGY OR WHAT? YOU NEVER SAW THAT COMING, DID YOU? Gosh we’re so clever.

mosellegreen:

In my original fiction, I’m going to steal Loki over and over again. And give him justice. And love. And all the other good things he deserves.

One thing I’d really like to give him is the Thor he deserves. (As a friend OR a brother OR a boyfriend, it doesn’t matter.)

But I don’t know how anymore. Thor is just so awful. I love Chris Hemsworth so so much but Thor is basically Prince Joffrey grown up and it’s even affected how I see other characters Hemsworth plays. Like, when I saw the second Huntsman movie I kept watching him suspiciously, waiting for him to do something horrible.

Hemsworth’s manner and appearance embodies our fantasy of privilege making someone good. He’s beautiful and strong and healthy and tall and a cishet white male, and Thor is also the crown prince of the most powerful realm in the galaxy, who also has a magic hammer and a doting sorcerous family to boot. It’s nice to think that someone could respond to all that privilege by believing that the world is a good place, that they can share their happiness, that they don’t need to attack anyone else because there’s enough bounty for everyone in this wonderful universe!

Maybe it’s a power fantasy. Maybe we’d like to think, “If I had been that lucky and strong and beautiful and high ranking, I’d be a radiantly good kind person like comic book Thor, like Chris Hemsworth appears to be.”

I guess some people have responded to good fortune that way. 

But usually, well… the reason I grew to hate Thor so much after TDW was that I’ve known a LOT of guys like TDW Thor. Vicious, sadistic, stupid, incompetent. Alan Taylor purposely evoked a “playground bullying” vibe in the scene where Thor and his vile friends threatened Loki, triggering those of us who lived through that. My former teachers no doubt loved that scene as much as they loved watching two or three boys beat up on me (and other smart nerds) when I was a child. 

I understand Loki only too well. We both know perfectly well that Thor is utterly evil and has no potential to ever change, and yet we can’t help longing for him to. No matter how many wonderful guys I put into Loki’s bed in one fic after another, nothing can make up for losing Thorki.

I dunno. Does anyone have any good advice for me, for how I could give my serial-numbers-filed-off Loki a serial-numbers-filed-off-and-also-not-evil Thor? How I can give a character all those shiny privileges we envy so much, and also make it believable that they wouldn’t ruin him like they ruined movie Thor?

Well… I didn’t like TDW either. It left such a vile taste in my mouth. Esc Thor and Sif. And Thor.. how stupid can u be that you took a girl who was being hunted by an ancient race hell bent on destruction and revenge to your home. I couldn’t help but felt that Friggas’s death was all his fault and he took the last person who was (still and always were) Loki’s last thread to sanity and salvation. Sorry for pouring it like rain here… but I almost couldn’t see future with Thorki.

If it’s something happening before the canon MCEU timeline… or AU. It could be…

Yeah, AU is the idea. I’m talking about originalfic here.

Like, I want to write a series of novels about a spy who’s based on Loki. In fanfic terms, “Alternate Universe-Human”. Evil people in his spy agency frame him for something he didn’t do and he has to try to clear his name or at least not get shot or arrested. While also saving the day.

I’d like to give Spy!Loki a Thor. So this Thor hasn’t done any of the vile things that TDW Thor has, or even the petty douchebaggery that Thor did in the first two Loki movies. He could have been a good person all along. I’m just having trouble conceptualizing a non-evil Thor now.

If you’re pro-Odin don’t read this.

I remembered how bad TDW was and it made me mad so I vented my feelings a bit by writing this.

When they were deciding which scenes to delete in Thor: yeah we’ll just get rid of the parts where we see other sides of Loki’s personality and character development that’s fine

me, when marvel inevitably reveals that loki was planning to take the throne all along and intended to fake his death: that’s nice but moving right along let’s talk about that internalized racism and the suicide attempt
