Tom Hiddleston: Loki Redux
 
I am shocked SHOCKED that there is not a thread in here dedicated to Loki specific banter!!! Well, I guess I have to take it upon myself to start one.

Anyways, my gut instinct is thinking that this is going to be the movie where Loki irrevocably crosses the line into the dark side and falls from grace for all eternity.

I found my original Twitter account and changed the password. I of course sent Tom a Happy Birthday wish.

*Edit* Oh my God it's a brand new, fresh thread!!! :woot:

Shiny.

As a character Loki is more interesting and will last longer if he pulls back from the abyss of eternal damnation slightly, still not to be trusted in any way, but not completely lost either. That's what I'm hoping for. If this will happen remains to be seen, though a hint would be nice. You hear that, TPTB?

The thing with Loki is that he's so dern dangerous you just can't ostracize him outright. I think that if I were Odin and Thor I'd want him to be in my line of sight often.

I don't know...it's almost like the two are synonymous. I've even seen online a sect of fans that have been shipping both Tom and Loki as a pair. It's a very bizarre fetish.

True. Problem is how you keep him in line. There has to be some kind of chain to yank in should he start to stray. And I'm not talking about his son's intestines here.

For anyone interested, there's a birthday tag on Twitter for Tom. #HappyBirthdayHiddles.

There's not enough brain bleach in this world for this. I'm usually fine with slash (being a Trekker after all) but for some reason this does not float my boat.

Hmmm...I think if I were Odin I'd guess that since Loki likes Frigga so much that he's looking for female companionship, hence why I'd set him up with a girl like Sigyn whom Loki seems to be paying a lot of attention to.

I know really...fans can have such strange fetishes for sure! I don't think that Tom would want to delve too deeply in certain fangirl practices so just let an assistant weed through all that strangeness.

It would be difficult to play out on screen though because it could send all sorts of twisted messages to young women, like you can reform bad men.

The way I would write it is that you can't reform a damaged man though. In the comics it is inferred that Sigyn has perished which is not quite sending a positive message to girls about getting involved with the wrong man. The Twilight books and movies give a worse message to girls about how it's not harmful to get involved with dangerous men like Edward Cullen.

So, unless you wouldn't go down the well trampled beauty and the beast path, then how would it be done? Just curious how you'd imagine something like that.

And don't get me started on Twilight. Ugh. :doh:

It's funny that you would ask me that! I am currently developing a story with Sigyn in it. I'm just trying to work out how I want to develop that relationship between the two. I view it more like she's a childhood friend and he sees her for a bit until a traumatic experience and he, considering she's all he has left as a means of genuine love, decides to go past friendship to something more serious.

So you write fanfic! Are you on FF.net?

Godzilla2000 02-09-2013 07:07 AM

Re: Tom Hiddleston: Loki Redux - Part 1
 
I do have an old old old page on FF.net that I haven't used in over a decade. I have a Generation 1 Transformers fanfiction that is 100% complete somewhere on Geocities (*edit* Checked for the Geocities page and it's not there, perhaps because I haven't visited it in years but I still have the story on disc so it's not lost.), but I am currently editing that (Because I'm a perfectionist.) I am converting to .pdf for easier read since it is pretty huge.

Just picturing Kid Loki's diary entry for the day:

Dear Diary,

Yelled at the disembodied spirit of my older self today. Everyone in father's court thought it was adorable.


I have a feeling that something might happen that eliminates Kid Loki's hero worship of Thor and he'll take up the horns and magically hits puberty in seconds to become a Tom Hiddleston style Loki.

JIM/Kid Loki Spoiler

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

Already happened at the end of JIM/Everything Burns. :( Although I have a feeling that this Kid Loki, the one who stands up to Spirit Loki, may re-emerge at some point, in some way shape or form, but it may be a very very long way down the road.

Sooo...

he's now Tom Hiddleston? Speaking of Tom Hiddleston...and I quote...

Tom Hiddleston, the actor who plays Loki in the cinematic adaption of Thor and The Avengers wrote a letter to Kieron Gillen, expressing how they "see" the character in the same way and congratulates the writer, claiming to be an honor to share Loki's legacy with him.

No, he's not, and I'm aware of that quote already.

Quote:

Dear Kieron:

You and I see Loki the same way. He’s one dark, anarchic, bottomless black hole of rage, hatred, pity and pain. An exiled outcast, a lost & lonely agent of chaos, who wouldn’t know what to do with familial forgiveness if it walked up to him in the street and slapped him in the face. I’ve had as much fun playing him as you’ve clearly had writing up. I know your run on JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY has been so hugely popular. What an enormous honour to share Loki’s legacy with you. Here’s to bringing Norse back!

– Tom Hiddleston
it is kind of interesting, the doesn't know what to do with familial forgiveness part, as far as Thor 2 goes, since I think he likely would have written this at the start of filming.
