Musings of a busy mind

Fight

Gone with the Wind, 1939.

But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.

This is what rape culture looks like.

This is what misogyny looks like.

Loki: Brother of Thor (by ) [FAN-MADE LOKI EDIT MOVIE]

All Of Tom Hiddleston’s Marvel Footage Edited Into One Loki Mega-Movie

Whether you’re celebrating the end of a lazy Labor Day or just want to unwind after a stressful Monday, there’s likely no better way to end your day than by watching this two-hours movie about Tom Hiddleston’s fan-favorite villain Loki, assembled from the Thor, Thor 2 andAvengers movies.

The movie is titled Loki: Brother of Thor, and here’s how the creator describes it:

My goal was to chronicle the character development of Loki into a single narrative. You’ll notice I took out a lot fluff and even some beloved fight scenes, only because I was trying to focus the film on Loki and his relationships. I also inserted all of the relevant deleted scenes (you’ll notice that they haven’t been fully rendered and mixed), several of which add great depth to his story and family dynamics. A big challenge was bridging the end of Thor and the beginning of The Avengers, explaining Loki’s exile and involvement with the Tesseract *before* he portals to earth. I created a montage to kinda show all that, even pulling a clip from Guardians of the Galaxy. …

The opening scene of my edit is a flash forward to a contemplative, imprisoned Loki, spliced with footage from Tom Hiddleston’s screen test when he auditioned for Thor’s character, aptly capturing Loki’s jealousy (the duality between them is really the meat of this film, hence the title Loki: Brother of Thor). Then there’s a bit of a scary awakening from the character that *probably* haunts Loki’s dreams.

Even if you’re not sure about how the footage fits together in a single narrative, it’s still all the Loki bits from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that ain’t bad. Surely some of you don’t mind watching two-plus hours of Tom Hiddleston being diabolically evil, do you?

Thank you, missviolethunter, for sending me those lovely gifs! They will most definitely be helpful. :-D

Glad I could help! It was really hard to find a gif of Hal being angry… that boy laughed an awful lot before becoming a more serious (and hotter) king.

Wait until he finds all the dirty Magnus fanfics…
