*MY SUBMISSION FOR THE SOFTER SIDE OF LOKI CONTEST!*
A brief description:
My characterization of the softer side of Loki is the side of him that realizes how lost he is and believes internally that there is no turning back. He holds many of the beliefs similar to that of Tom Hiddleston's portrayal of the character, while many of the emotions shown in the Thor film are evident. (At least that's what I was going for). He believes himself to be a monster, incapable of love while this belief stirrs within him a yearning to be above others. He recalls the destruction and the chaos- all of the death. I wanted to portray his inwardmost thoughts- perhaps to freeze some of them in time. I wanted to portray them as he might think on them- as echoes of his past. Each echo is a painful one- they are shadows of what he once was, what he thought he knew, etc. I wanted to show that, though he is branded with many crimes, he has remorse. He looks on it and hates himself for it. He longs to return home, to be innocent again. But he believes that he cannot turn back- that he has fallen too deep to be obsolved. This entry is the portrayal of the side of him that dies every time he kills. It is meant to portray his hardened heart while revealing how broken he truly is. Enjoy!
