thats the show.
and there goes the rest of my heart
I went through denial, anger, bargaining and depression so now I’m back to full-blown denial
#this is why he’s such a compelling villain#it’s not because he’s misunderstood or hot or that it’s attractive to murder and destroy people#but because this was his beginning#look at the horror and the betrayal in his eyes#so he decides that if people see him as a monster he’s darn well going to become one#that’s not right but wow is it heartbreaking#and i think that’s why loki’s so popular (aside from tom hiddleston)#his dysfunction /hurts/#and there’s always a chance for redemption#because this man here in this moment is not a monster (via starlight-in-your-eyes)
I love that Loki’s popularity has absolutely nothing to do with Tom Hiddleston’s name recognition. It is purely his talent. Before Thor, almost no one had even heard of Tom Hiddleston. He was (pardon this word usage, it is for a lack of better word choice) kind of a ‘nobody’ in the world of Hollywood. Then he was Loki, and he made a character that could have been so one dimensional incredibly dynamic and human. His performance in Thor is heartbreaking and terrifyingly relate-able, which makes it riveting. I’ll never forget leaving the theatre and thinking, “I know I was supposed to hate Loki…”… but I cried for him instead. And then I came home, got online, and found out the rest of the world did, too. Brilliant acting. Just fantastic.
AYE AYE CAPTAIN!
AYE AYE CAPTAIN!
No but okay, okay, this scene is so important, though?? Way beyond just providing a line for the callback later, it’s just—
Like, this is Steve right after he’s lost his mom, with no family left, no one to rely on but himself, and that’s fine, he’s fine, he can do it. Because Steve’s just learned one of the hardest lessons of his life, and that’s that no matter how important someone is, how much they might love you, they might not always be around to take care of you. You’ve gotta be able to rely on yourself, because soon or later you’re going to have to. And then here’s Bucky, who doesn’t argue for a moment that Steve can’t take care of himself, even though he’s little and doesn’t have much money and has almost every illness it’s possible for that small, frail body to hold—it doesn’t even occur to Bucky to bring any of that up, because he knows Steve, knows perfectly well how capable and determined and flat-out stubborn he is. So what he says is that Steve isn’t alone; that Bucky’s there for him; that he’s always going to be there for him. Whether Steve lets him help or not, Bucky’s always always going to be there.
Flash forward eighty years or so, and Steve’s been stabbed and beaten and nearly killed a dozen times over, and Bucky’s bellowing denials are still ringing in his ears, and what does Steve tell him?
That he’s not going to stop being in Bucky’s corner, no matter what it means for him. That even if Bucky pushes him away, even if he kills him, Steve’s going to take his last breath refusing to turn away from his friend, refusing to leave him to fend for himself alone. That he’s with him ‘til the end of the line.

I hate when I’m reading and then start thinking about stuff and before I know it I’m at the end of the page and have no recollection of what I just read
My dad just came into my room and shouted at me in Klingon.
Am I more embarrassed that he did that or that I know he said I was a disappointment to the empire?
You should be most embarrassed that you’re a disappointment to the empire.
