So here's the finished comic I promised. XD Stupid comic is stupid, lol.
The thing about "rocks, plants and horses" is a reference from Norse mythology, you might know that Loki ..err..has a thing for such stuff, if you know what I mean… On a side note, I'm also planning to draw something with Sleipnir and mom!Loki, ehehe xDDD
LOL! Everything about this is so perfect! Love the way Loki doesn't get upset about any of his punishments except for access to the internet. "What's a tum-blurr?" That got me laughing! XD Great style of art, and overall, this is hilarious!!! XD
Where did the idea of rocks and plants come from? I apologise, this is going to sound incredibly vain - but I'm kind of an expert on Norse mythology, and I can think of absolutely nothing that corresponds to any sort of amour between Loki and plants/rocks. If you could point me toward the source of these weird ideas, I would be extremely grateful.
And though Loki's encounter with the horse is laughed at and joked about as some sort of weird fetish of Loki's, I want to point out that Loki was forced to delay the builder's work, against his will, and threatened with death if he did not comply. Further, the gods could not be seen as the ones responsible for causing the delay, because that would essentially mean they were going back on their word. So Loki was forced to come up with a way to delay the building while making it look like the gods had nothing to do with it. As such, he had to wear another form. And what could he do to stall? Drawing the builder's horse away from the construction was pretty much Loki's only option, and doing so as a horse was the most logical choice, for luring a horse. So Loki went out there, taking the only real option available, and doing so against his will, only because he was threatened with death if he did not, and his plan was to lure the horse away. Loki got the horse to chase him, so it stopped helping the builder, and the horse chased Loki for the entire duration from then until dawn, at which point it caught up to him and proceeded to take advantage of him. So... Maybe I'm getting too much into this, but basically, I don't think this occasion can be reflective of Loki having weird fetishes either.
I'm sorry if I've taken this too seriously. I don't mean any offence, and I love the comic anyway. I'm simply very passionate about Norse mythology, and I don't like it when parts of it get confused.
lokimotives.tumblr.com/post/35… I have no idea where this is from actually but I thought I'd give you the link, this is where I got it from. About the horse story, I'm also aware that in the original mythology Loki didn't do it out of his free will. I just find the idea of Loki having weird fetishes very fun, and the Loki in my head isn't 100% the one from the mythology but mostly the Marvel one mixed with a little mythology. Well, anyway, thank you very much for your comment!
Ah, thank you! And yeah, I agree, Marvel Loki definitely isn't mythology Loki - in fact, they're completely separate, in my mind. So yeah, feel free to have your own head canons - we all do! When people use "facts" about mythology Loki to describe Marvel Loki though, I guess I tend to be a bit of a killjoy, and insist that people get their facts right before applying them to Lokis across the board. But yeah, they're all fictional characters in the end, so maybe I should not get so impassioned about fighting misinformation, haha. Anyway, thanks again!
