Del, 40, she/her. Lets be honest, this blog is mostly Loki and Tom Hiddleston, with some other Marvel, Doctor Who, LOTR, Star Trek, Good Omens, and other things that take my fancy thrown in for good measure.
Occasionally some of my art as I learn to draw and paint.
I'm excited and terrified for the Loki series in equal parts! Tagging #spoilers for the Loki sereies as episodes come out.
We looked inside some of the posts by delyth88 and here's what we found interesting.
I just watched this short interview with Owen Wilson and thought this comment was interesting:
“...having worked on buddy comedies before and being familiar with that kind of dynamic... this isn’t a comedy, but certainly some of the scenes where Tom and I are... sort of its like a chess match, those were kind of familiar to me, and we had good ideas to make those scenes compelling and hopefully dramatic, and sometimes even funny.”
I’m hopeful this is an indication they won’t be leaning too heavily on comedy for the series. I’d be happier if the rest of the episodes were more in the vein of the second half of the first episode than the first half of it.
Just listened to a podcast about the first episode of Loki... and omg... if you're gonna spend an hour talking about something at least learn the character's name. Lol! Morbius. 🙄 Unless that was an accent thing. But it was still quite eye opening to be reminded that a lot of people who will be talking about the Loki series know less than pretty much everyone who hangs out here and therefore reach some interesting conclusions.
So yeah, if you come across any good podcasts or discussions about the show let me know. :)
I'm struggling to find enough time to sit and write down my thoughts on what we've had so far, let alone meaningfully engage with folk here about their takes on it, and it's only another 4 days till the next episode!!!
I still remember a couple of years ago, when we were all dreamy like “just imagine if Loki had his own films/show… the amount of Loki content we’d be getting, the amount of screen time… more Loki fanmerch, an awesome OST, more costumes…” and here we are now, in June 2021, LIVING OUR FREAKING DREAM.
You know, I’ve watched the first episode four times already and it only hit me now that we’ll get another one next week already! And then another one and then another one… we are truly blessed, guys. Truly.
does anyone else thats aspec feel like theyre simultaneously too allo and too aro? im demi + bi romantic & ace but i'll see other aces or allos talking abt their sexuality and not really relate to either of them (e.g. some aces not finding people hot/pretty and some allos developing feelings for ppl a lot faster than i do) idk it just feels kind of weird to feel like my sexuality is contradicting itself and like i dont truly belong in either category
This sounds a lot like the reasoning by why gray-ace was coined (the gray area between allosexuality and asexuality), because some people really do occupy that gray area. And it's not clear cut for everyone, and it's OK for it to not be clear cut.
I'm pretty sure you're not the only person who feels this way, and I'm going to open this up to followers. If anyone has similar feelings or thoughts/opinions, please do share!
Wait, what if the series ends with Loki achieving all of his dreams, but he is reset. Which means he goes back to his original path, not knowing a thing. And the scene when he is reset, he smiled because he’s proud of archiving something good. Even if he forgets about it.
Oooh... I hadn't thought about that possibility! But I think that's a great idea!
On the robot thing
Ok so I do not in any way expect the show to actually go this route, but there is a very whumpy possible explanation for the robot thing - I’ve seen a few people mention that Loki is probably thinking about the fact that he never knew he was Jotun, so he can’t be certain he’s not a robot too (ouch). I do think this is part of it, and I also think it’s completely reasonable to assume that Loki’s worried that Thanos put some kind of robotic parts into him at some point. It’s likely he came across Nebula or at least knew of her, and he could very well be wondering if Thanos did some similar things to him internally that he doesn’t know about. After all, the torture absolutely could have been bad enough that Loki didn’t always know what was happening to him at any given time. The line didn’t feel like any kind of foreshadowing to me so I doubt the show will revisit this, but either way it seems pretty likely something like this was going through his mind.
I was thinking about that scene where Loki wonders whether this whole time he's been a robot and doesn't know it. Like that was silly and a bit pointless, but I guess there's time in a TV show to do that sort of thing. 🤷♀️
And then I realised that it's not so long ago that Loki would have been dwelling on the fact that this whole time he was a frost giant without knowing it.
I was pleasantly surprised that the person who was all "Loki is a villain" was Loki. I was expecting that to come from outside him, from Mobius or someone else. I like that it's not being forced on him.
Maybe it will be, by other characters later if that's the theme of the show, but at least he's acknowledged it first.
