With Thor 2 and this chapter I can't deal with my feelings right now...
| I'vebeenLOKI'Dyetagain chapter 17 . 11/3/2013
Odin fell asleep... *snickers* I don't know why that strikes me as funny... possibly because it's like the "Thor" movie sort of, with Odin falling asleep when it's just him and Loki talking... (and also possibly because I'm not all that fond of Odin and have been kind of making fun of him falling asleep whenever he's needed...) At least he feels regret though... Loki may have forgiven him, but I haven't, heh.
Which brings me to Loki, and his not hating Odin and forgiving him long ago, while Thor hasn't. Which I can understand, because Thor's self-centered and thinks the worlds revolve around him, and he loves Loki and wants to protect him but Odin made it so he can't - while Loki long ago lost the notion that the world revolves around him (because all children are kind of self-centered, and gain introspection as they get older, but Loki gained introspection quite early, living in such a harsh and cold and painful reality as Jotunheim) although he knows he's important (as a tool) because he's powerful and the Prince of Jotunheim, he's probably forgiven Odin because he thinks he's not worth it, because he hates himself, and if he hates himself and sees himself as unworthy, he can't hold hatred for Odin for giving him to Laufey. Because while Thor still feels indignation when he doesn't get exactly what he wants, Loki is very, very used to pain and to not getting what he wants, and like Loki was saying Thor acts on his emotions - and though Loki is also very emotional, he had to pretend he wasn't, had to act cold and heartless and try to convince himself he was. I'm not surprised at all that Loki would shield himself from their gazes, so that they couldn't see him suffer, and think him even more pathetic and weak than he thought they probably already did. It's one thing to suffer, and another entirely for everyone to see - and Loki's definitely one to suffer alone, to just take the pain and not let anyone know, because they wouldn't help anyway.
And Loki mentioned going back to Jotunheim? Frankly I'm not surprised, actually. Though to accomplish anything there I'm guessing Laufey will have to be killed. Because Laufey's evil. And Loki of course doesn't feel like he belongs in Asgard, and he's probably come to sort of love Jotunheim in a way - I mean, being there suffering for so long he'd have to find something there to help him through, and of course not all the Frost Giants are bad because no race is entirely evil. I definitely couldn't see Loki just blindly hating the Jotun after living there for so long, and wanting to just stay in Asgard and never go back.
And... yeah XD Eheheh, amazing chapter as always! I can't tell you how excited I was to see you'd updated :D And I must commend you on your ability to write sentimental conversations, and to make them realistic and sweet and not all cheesy or anything :3
Thank you so much for this chapter! I'm looking forward to reading what happens next, whenever you get around to posting ;)

Finally a fic in which Odin isn't portrayed as a complete jerk, I really want to find out what happens next. Please update soon!
| Saramagician chapter 16 . 9/1/2013
Interesting! I can't wait to see what happen in the next chapter!
| I'vebeenLOKI'Dyetagain chapter 16 . 8/24/2013
I'm sorry to hear you were having a rough time :( But I'm so glad you're doing much better now!
Amazing, albeit incredibly heart-wrenching chapter. Oh Loki... T_T I love though how you show the way he puts up a cold front in order to protect himself because he's so very delicate and lost, and yet he's strong enough to adapt in order to survive the awful circumstances and no matter what horrible things happen to him he never just completely /gives up/... I guess that point that I'm trying to get at is that Loki is not in any way weak. And he's not so ignorant as others might think... knowing the awful truth that he's being used as a tool... I'm kind of getting the feeling magic ends up being a sort of lifeline for him, maybe? But oh gods, Loki cutting his arms and not feeling pain, and then the nightmare of being alone, and just... T_T
Also, have I yet told you amazing your writing is? I would never have guessed that English isn't your first language - your vocabulary and structure exceeds that of many people whose first language /is/ English - and I actually had to look up a few words I didn't know in this chapter :) Also, your ability to capture emotion in your writing is breathtaking. You're truly talented. I just wanted you to know :3
You mean the story book Loki took from the shelf in the last part? I'm afraid I can't place it :/ I'm curious now though - may I ask what it is?
Anyway, thank you so much for this chapter! :D I look forward to the next update!
