"You're lying," and Loki says, "I'm not," and Thor shakes his head every time.

"Thor, your friends don't like me."

"They do. You imagine these things."

Why trust my weapons in battle, but not my words? "Don't you trust me?"

"Loki, I know better -"

So he's not hopeless. Don't let it hurt, are you so weak?

Like the sun, Thor doesn't change. Doesn't listen. He doesn't listen -

Stubborn oaf. Sometimes Loki really hates him for it, hates him. It almost feels like power, and he doesn't want to stop, almost.
