Loki saves Sif, Fandral, everybody im crying

The thing about Loki is that he’s the one who’s keeping an eye on the whole fight instead of just fighting his guy. Because I think he thinks it’s his responsibility to make sure everyone is on track and comes home safe. I just rewatched this and he is the one who reins everyone in “Thor let’s leave,” “Laufey we accept your deal,” “THOR WE HAVE TO LEAVE” “THOR!” As they’re all running away in Jotunheim after this fight, he’s the one who calls for Thor to make sure Thor is coming too. He’s the one who tattled to get Odin to come save them. And that way no one else has to risk being the coward, and that’s like Loki’s role on the team and it both leads to him being necessary AND leads to him being bullied. 

I’m really not trying to criticize Thor or Sif or the Warriors Three because it’s not their fault, they never asked Loki to do this, and they’ve never had any reason to second-guess themselves because Odin doesn’t take Loki any more seriously than they do. Children don’t become bullies in a vacuum. It’s really Odin’s fault, is what I’m trying to say, and the whole royal Asgardian hierarchical/monarchic family culture. 

*weeps openly*

I agree with thisx
now don’t get me wrongx
Loki partially got them into this shitx
he’s aware of that toox
And I’m assuming it’s his plan that they survivex
which is a reason for him trying to smoothen things outx
because he does not want people to diex
he just wanted the confrontation to happenx
and he wants to be the one who can go I told you sox
he ALSO wants the people to survive because they are dear to himx
yesx
I don’t understand why it always has to be one or the otherx
that’s what I love about this characterx
he doesn’t have to decide for one reason for his actionsx
one consequence he aims forx
he knows there are a lot and goes for thosex

All of his spiel about freedom, which he brings up often, and how cripply it is for people, I enjoyed enormously writing. Not just because it sounds like funny elizabethan type talk, but because I really believe that he believes it. It makes perfect sense on some level to say that humanity is not doing a very good job at taking care of themselves and what they’d really like is for Daddy to make it better. And for him to espouse that so articulately and not understand that only a person who is deeply damaged would ever want to  be the person to care of everybody is what, I think, makes his character so interesting.
