They feared him, he knew. They would come to fear him more… They would sing songs and tell tales about him… That was his destiny… All he had to do… was wait. — Thor: The Trials of Loki #4
"It has always been you, you oafish halfwit,” Loki says.
Okay, fine, I’ll play too. All this glorious V-Day Thorki art has inspired me to do one too (instead of, you know, work I’m supposed to be doing). You guys really outdid yourselves this year— lots of Thorki love on my dash today. :)
I really hate valentines day, just a perpetual reminder of how I don’t have my shit together (because it always comes around every year and every year it’s just a regular day for me *plays tiny violin*), but I love these two SO MUCH that I just couldn’t help myself. And naturally because it’s me there had to be a touch of angst.
If he’d been a lesser god, Thor might have accepted that Gorr had won. And more so, that Gorr deserved to win. That gods were cruel and jealous creatures. That it was time for their age to pass. But this was no lesser god.
Thor Week, Day 1: Why do you love Thor?
Thor has such fantastic development and complexity as a character; he’s literally sunshine and rainbows but also pounds of ripped god muscle ready to take down the haters. There’s so many reasons I could list for why I love Thor. He feels love; he feels pain; he feels hope; he feels despair with such intensity, and he fights with that same intensity. Thor shows that you can be a complete badass with equal parts compassion and strength; his strength is not just physical prowess, its mental resilience and the capacity to love.
