Goodnight and Goodbye, Eleventh Doctor
We all change, when you think about it. We’re all different people all through our lives. And that’s okay, that’s good, you’ve got to keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this. Not one day. I swear. I’ll always remember when The Doctor was me.
Heat Exhaustion Symptoms
- Muscle cramps
- Pale skin
- Profuse sweating
- Sunken, dark eyes from dehydration
Do I need to remind you what he looked like during this entire scene?
He’s sweaty, his blood circulation isn’t working well due to vasoconstriction (namely, look at how pale his lips are,) and he’s got dark, sunken in eyes. Now we’ve got a point in which he trips and almost falls for some inexplicable reason. Well, let me ask you this.
How do you torture a frost giant?
Whedon wouldn’t just put in clips like this for no reason. He’s trying to show us something. The Loki we see here in this scene is not a healthy Loki, it’s a Loki who is weak and pale and probably focused on just staying conscious—a Loki who has probably been tortured by Thanos into submission and then sent out to do his dirty work for him, that way Thanos will never get the blame. Loki is just the puppet in the grand master scheme of things. Thanos is using him.
The Loki we see in Thor is radically different from the Loki we see in The Avengers. Sure, post-Thor, Loki is emotionally unstable, and maybe a little nuts, but he wasn’t a murderer. The only reason he went after Jotunheim is because he was having identity issues. Murder wasn’t something that was normal in his repertoire, yet we see him doing it frequently in The Avengers. The Loki we see at the end of Thor doesn’t want to live, let alone take over an entire realm that he had no interest in before. Something drastic must have happened between the two movies to have made Loki have such a huge character change.
It’s said that Thanos caught/rescued Loki after he fell from the Bifrost. Well, what did he do after that? Thanos is known for having telepathic powers, and since he had to have caught Loki knowing who he was and how strong he was, he likely broke into Loki’s mind to find out all of his fears and weaknesses. And once he found out all of Loki’s darkest secrets, it was easy to break him. He and the Chitauri took the Loki we saw in Thor and tortured and corrupted him until he was warped into their own personal demigod, ready to do their bidding. Why do you think Loki spouts off all these quotes about how “Freedom is life’s great lie,” and “In the end, you will always kneel”? He’s projecting.
So, when he trips? That’s the aftershocks of torture. That’s a Loki, weakened and struggling to stay upright, pushing forward through the pain because, otherwise?
“You will long for something as sweet as pain.”
He has to keep going because the alternative isn’t a question.
Reblogging this photoset again because OH MY WORD LOKI NO.
Always thought the above, also there is an interview somewhere that I watched and it mentions, although you can tell, that Loki’s eyes are different at times in the Avengers to Thor and as we now know, Thor The Dark World. The Loki in Avengers was being controlled, not to the extent of Hawkeye etc as he still had some of his own control. It is why at times when Thor is talking to him you see some of the “Old” Loki breaking through. Like when they first talk on the rock when Thor states “Come Home” something for a split second triggers in Loki’s mind. When Thor is telling him on Stark Tower to look around again something in Loki triggers for a split second until he gets taken over again and says “Sentiment”.
All this is why I do not hate on Loki at all…… Just my 2 cents
I just uttered my last word as Barney “Awesomepants” Stinson today. Nine years. Man, time sure flies when you’re having fun…
The biggest misconception about me is that I’m uptight. There’s nothing uptight about me! I’ve got this ice-blonde reputation and that’s just not me. I do silly things in public all the time, like hosting Saturday Night Live, or I’ll go out with friends and have a good time. I try to live my life to the fullest even if it means making a fool of myself.
