Re: Tom Hiddleston: Loki Redux
I don't think Loki's angst is derived from Odin's withholding of the truth from him but from the prejudices of all of Asgard itself. Imagine having people reacting hostilely towards you all your life because you were different thinking you are Asgardian and then millenia later finding out that you're not even one of them but the bastard son of a monster. I'm sure that would put a lot of hatred in your heart for people. Loki is in an unenviable place because the Frost Giants wouldn't accept him as their king because he's a weak runt and the Asgardians don't accept him for not being like an Asgardian. If they find out he's a Prince of Jotunheim that will make things even worse for him. Basically Loki's life really sucks because it seems destiny has dictated that he will never be able to find unconditional acceptance from the masses for just being who he is.
- What you're really saying is that I have to change because you don't know how to be a better person.
- When I politely decline that's the end of it. Don't pursue it any further or I will get mad and not be so polite anymore.
- Whenever you entertain the notion of not giving me any conscious autonomy of course I'm going to be pissed.
- The short answer is that you have not made my life better at all.
