Loki & Thor, what feels like a very long time ago on the Bifrost.

'Missing Lollipop' by Tara K Labus

"Missing Lollipop" by Tara K Labus

"Loki. He started off with a lolly in his mouth, but I took months to finish this, and the candy couldn't have lasted that long."

There's a theory that Loki is associated from early nature myths with wildfire, from the fact that he is born of Fárbauti and Laufey. The name of Fárbauti, his father, means "dangerous striker" which could well mean lightning (or just warrior). The name of Laufey, his mother, means "leaves", and her other name, Nál, means "pine needles".

From what I understand, the association of Loki with fire is up for debate, especially as in the myths he fought fire personified, Logi, and lost; the association could possibly be a later Christian "Satanic" syncretisation/influence.

This is a good example of Loki interpreted/understood/simplified (for children) as an evil, fiery Satan-figure:

“Remember Tokk” by Einherjer (1988, Norway)

I am the one of battle’s reason
I left this world my mother’s corpse
I am the eyes and heart of treason
My lullabye the screams of horse
I am the haunting and the hurting
I read the walls of memory
I am the fist in the face of glory
I grow and my fire with me

Chorus:
Hark! Is that the battle’s horn?

Has Ragnarok been born?
Fire runs my passion burns
Love cries as death comes
Is that the frost and fire?
Giants of south and those up higher
Fire runs my passion burns
Fear breaks and chaos rules

I am the incarnation of all ages
I’ve seen it all and of reason
Some of you may trust in me
And some of you may know that;
Stones and earth swore an oath
As did iron and all kinds of ore
Some cried tears but Tokk did not
She did what she could why ask for more

[Chorus]

My children might be known to you
Some might even met them too
Guilt is mine in words not felt
Wisdom’s sons presence lack
Mother father which am I?
Ask my sons wolf or death
I will guarantee
This is not the last you’ve heard from me

I’ve felt the taste of poison
Water wet I breathe like air
I caused the earth to rumble
And soon the end of all you know
Some of you may recognize
My skills in lies and betrayal acts
The very same might find it strange
My brother is the wisdom’s face

[Chorus]

The Einherjer are those who died in battle and were brought to Valhalla by the Valkyries to prepare for battle at Ragnarok. Tokk was a giant woman who refused to weep for Baldur, ensuring he remained in Hel; it’s heavily implied in myth that Tokk was Loki shapeshifted (yeah, nice one Loki).

I don't even know which is the choicest part to quote from Better Myths' take on Loki's Quarrel, I <3 all of it like you don't even know:

and this chick Gefjun is like seriously everybody calm down
and Loki is like YOU FUCK LITTLE BOYS
and then Odin is like AMATEUR HOUR IS OVER PUSSPANTHERS

THIALFI
GIVE ME A BEAT
and Thialfi is all like BOOM PSH BOOM BOOM PSH wikiwiki
and Odin’s like YO

BUT I’M NOT EVEN SURE THAT YOU HAVE A PENIS
CAUSE I HEARD ABOUT HOW YOU FUCKED A HORSE
AND WHEN THE BABIES CAME OUT, YOUR HORSE-VAG WAS THE SOURCE

and all the gods are like OHHHHHH SNAPPPPPP
and loki’s like UH UH CHECK IT OUT
I’LL FUCK YOUR OTHER EYE OUT AND I’LL MAKE YOU MY BITCH
YO I HEARD YOU ONCE DESCENDED TO EARTH AS A WITCH
THAT WOULD SEEM TO PROVE THAT YOU LACK A DONG
EVEN THOUGH I’M TOTALLY LYING ABOUT ALL THIS SHIT
and then frigga is like this is pretty stupid
and Loki’s like YOU’RE A SLUT
and frigga is like bro if Baldur were here right now
and not dead

and Loki’s like HAHA JOKE’S ON YOU

beeishappy:

Had to GIF this blink because when I went to see it with a friend we thought we were weird for noticing such a minute detail.

Fabulous scene. [Loki & The Other's uneasy alliance in The Avengers]

You know, if it weren't for Loki, neither mjolnir nor gungnir would exist.

Ungrateful fucking Aesir assholes.
