I forgot it’s like ‘going to Hogwarts’ day today…I was at Alnwick yesterday!!!! Damn it!
No…don’t panic (I know none of you were) I’m not going away forever (distant groans of disappointment heard) I’m just going away for 2 days. I’ve set up no queue but I won’t be missed anyway. So I’ll see you in a few days guys-probably sunday night or monday. Take Care. xx

Thor: The Dark World (liveblog) [x]
There is so very much I love about this scene, it’s going to be difficult to contain myself because, no, really, I love everything about it.
1. I would legitimately watch two entire hours of Thor and Loki arguing back and forth like this. Such brothers, that is 100% straight out of every sibling relationship that’s been stuck somewhere together, especially if they’re on a road trip together. I WOULD WATCH TWO HOURS OF IT FOR REAL. All the more so because, as much as I do ship them, they are absolutely, 100% brothers.
I love it because I love them as brothers, but also because it shows that these moments are still their natural state. They stop thinking about all the shit between them, just for five minutes, and this is what happens. The moment a distraction comes up, all the shit of the last two years gets pushed back and they’re such brothers again, they instantly start giving each other shit, because that’s how they still think of each other, even under all the other crap.
2. One of the first reactions I had to this movie—and one of the reasons I’m so at peace with how the Thor/Loki relationship played out, especially vs Thor/Jane—is that, when you go back and watch this scene again or even just thinking about it, you hardly remember that Jane is in it at all. Even before she faints, she’s a non-presence here as soon as Thor and Loki are back together.
Sure, there’s a lot of things that I wish TDW had done differently with Loki’s character, but the one thing it did do very well? Whenever Thor and Loki are near each other, everyone and everything else becomes a pretty distance second to their focus on each other. It’s instant in this scene, how everything else is background noise, even Jane herself.
The second to last cap is one of the most striking images of the scene, it’s such a beautifully shot moment, and what do you see there? You see Thor and Loki standing side by side, you see the two of them as being the center of this scene, you can’t even really see Jane off to the side here. Everything else fades away, but Thor and Loki.
3. That last cap. Loki’s face is the face of a younger sibling who has to deal with an awesome older brother. That is the face of a younger sibling who has to deal with the universe forever rewarding Thor, in Loki’s eyes. HE’S SUCH AN IDIOT, HE’S HITTING THE BUTTONS TOO HARD, HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT HE’S DOING, BY ALL THINGS REASONABLE, THIS SHOULD BLOW UP IN THOR’S FACE AND— OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE HE GOT IT WORKING, I HATE THE UNIVERSE.
I’ve been there, Loki. I’ve been there.
4. Loki being the obnoxious as shit little brother NO YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG NO I KNOW BETTER NO DO IT THIS WAY THOR THOR THOR as he pops up here and there. Beautiful.
