The Mind of Evil - season 08 - 1971
Beloved, talk to Jesus about everything. When something unexpectedly good happens to you, see Him behind it and thank Him for His favor. When He paints a rainbow or a beautiful sunset in the sky, tell Him that you love how He put it there just for you. Cultivate that friendship with the Lord. You’ll find even the mundane things of life pregnant with divine meaning and purpose. Everyday life will become precious to you!

Anonymous said: Hi I love your blog but I was wondering why would you want to be romantically involved with Loki? when he's killed hundreds of innocent people just because he wanted to rule what he thought was an inferior species and his actions were caused because he thought his daddy didn't love him and he was jealous of Thor and the fact he was going to get the throne even though he would have probably got it in the end of Thor 2 if he wasn't such a little shit.
Warning: This response is kind of long.I just want to point out/add a couple of things: (sorry, this is scattered and I recognized that the original post was writing under tiredness.)
It’s been said that Thanos is more of a wheeler and dealer so The Other might actually be responsible for the torture, which makes sense since he’s the one that threatens Loki. We never actually got a sense of who Thanos was in Avengers.
In Norse culture, when someone died, you threw a banquet—particularly if they were as high ranking as a prince. I agree Odin couldn’t have cared less since we see Thor go out to meet him away from the banquet.
Loki didn’t just try to kill Laufey. He did kill Laufey. “Know that your death came at the Son of Odin’s [hand].” It was what sparked his “legal” war. “The Frost Giants will pay for what they’ve done today, I swear to you, Mother.”
Also about Loki being a murderer… He really didn’t kill any less than anyone on the Avengers, yet the public is still allowed to love them. Most of the deaths were collateral damage/caused by explosions that he didn’t actually set. We only see him kill Coulson, three others in the bunker, and the dude with the eye-thing in Stuttgart in Avengers. But maybe Anon meant Loki’s screen time as a whole? Which would add Jötun lives which the movie frames as unimportant/important only because of implications, and Dark Elf lives that don’t matter because bad guys. Seriously, I don’t understand how in terms of killing how Loki is seen as genuinely worse than the Avengers. They’ve got the higher kill count.
Adding on to this since you make good points and I’m slightly more awake now lol…
It’s true that we don’t see Thanos much in the Avengers, but I think it’s assumed that we’re to take into account what can be found of him in the comics, and torturing people into coercion is part of his resume. Though you could be right and it could just as easily have been The Other who actually did the torturing. Either way, Loki was tortured into submission.
Just realized how that “tries killing Laufey” sentence came across. What I meant to say was “He tries to gain Odin’s approval by killing Laufey and attempting to wipe out Jotunheim.” Sorry, the wording got a little screwy.
Also agree with you on Loki’s kills vs the Avengers kills, and would even add to it by pointing out Odin’s numbers are far higher and his motives just as questionable (something Loki points out repeatedly in TDW). Though I think I did enough attacking Odin’s character in the original post. Odin may not technically be the villain in any of the movies, but he is not a good guy. And I think a lot of Thor and Loki’s flaws can be attributed to that.
I also left out most of Loki’s attack on Jotunheim because the motives behind that are much worse and darker than my brain at 2am could handle dissecting. Compared to his assault on Earth, his attempt to wipe out Jotunheim is still what I consider one of the most disturbing moments for his character. It was beyond him finding them mindless monsters. It was him trying to wipe out everything he is into oblivion and permanently separate himself from it so he could gain Odin’s approval, which I think even he knew at some level would never happen. It’s the moment when his character truly snaps and his actions turn completely irrational. Before that moment, Loki was one for trouble, Loki loved causing problems for others, but he wasn’t the genocidal type.
Loki only does his most horrible acts when he’s pushed that far. Does that justify them? No. I’m only pointing out that there’s more driving Loki than him simply being just a villain. Truth is most villains aren’t just villains. They’re people who one way or another became convinced that the way they’re living is the only way they can live and the only way they can make it through life. I believe everything happens for a reason, but not in the “there’s a divine plan” sort of way. I believe everything happens because something caused it to happen. People aren’t just born with the desire to do evil things. Something pushes them to it. Loki’s just an example of one where we can see a lot of what pushed him into becoming the villain he now is. It doesn’t justify his actions, but it does explain them.
