no no no NO NO
thor is not blinded by his love for loki. thor is not blinded by loki. thor is not blinded by his brother and has no doubts about what his brother is and can do and is capable of and willing to do anymore
that is the entire point of his arc in the avengers
he knows what loki is at this point - he knows his brother is cruel and manipulative and burning and fraying inside and pulling apart inside of himself with hatred and with love with power and with chaos. he knows loki will burn asgard to the ground if he got a chance, grind earth into the dust for a laugh, throw thor from the skies and stick a knife in his side to make himself temporarily relieved of the ugliness he feels inside
he just doesn’t care
he knows what loki is. when he stops in the cage and looks at the man he called brother he realizes in that instant the enormity of the chasm between them, the eternity of loki’s fall, and that loki and his brother are no longer the same person and maybe had not been for centuries; but when he falls to the ground he flexes his hand and decides to bring that man called loki home anyway, because the last time he let him go loki turned into someone unrecognizable, and this time he is going to forge a new love and a new man out of the ashes of what had come before, even if he has to burn himself through to do it
he knows what loki is. he knows the risk. he knows he is harboring an enemy that will kill his friends and burn his home if he doesn’t stand guard at night with a knife but he decides, in that instant on earth, that the risk is worth it.
#no thor is not blindly loyal he had never been blindly loyal #once he had been blindly in love but now he has learnt to see clearly because he lost his eyes and ears and had to kingmake himself #he knows exactly what he is doing and what he is risking and exactly how far it can fall and how hot it can burn; he just doesn’t care (ilvalentinos)
#fuck a fandom thor #thor is terrifying and brilliant and elemental; and is all about stripping away what makes him weak or lesser from his bones #he’s building in checks and balances; knows his impulsivity is a weakness; and adapts against it #that makes him way more terrifying than loki; because thor can change; thor can adapt and become ever more powerful in himself #but the one thing thor will never be able to unmake or strip is his love for loki #it doesn’t blind him; he’s hyper aware of it; and of what loki is #and that’s so much worse; that he knows; and he loves anyway #that loki is the one thing that can make thor act selfishly; that will cause thor to realign and shift his stratagems #it’s not blind love; it’s a clear-eyed unyeilding inescapable kind of love #but thor just doesn’t care; because no matter what; loki is the one thing he won’t ever let go again #and that; that is terrifying as fuck in a being as powerful both inherently and hierarchially as thor #the one core thing in his being that thor will not abandon or shed for honour or asgard or anything he believes #and what i want most; what we’ve already seen happening in the trailer #is thor weaponizing that weakness in himself; weaponizing the object of his love with clear eyes for just what loki is #he knows he can’t change loki; he’s not blind to loki’s nature #and he can’t let loki go #so he’ll fucking use him as a weapon then #and that’s vicious and tragic; this is a bloody shakespearian tragedy of obsessive love and the competing demands of the throne #thor is not your fandom puppy dog; he’s a self-aware self-ascending adaptive king stripping all the gilt and illusion from his bones #thor 2 #thor #loki #these bloody shakespearian fools #like a binary star system [okayophelia]
So let me get this straight:
1. White people are the most likely to use crack.
2. Black people are the most likely to get arrested for crack.
And I’m supposed to believe that the justice system is efficient and works?
The justice system works exactly the way it was designed to work. We’re just being lied to about what that design was.
