"Introverts don’t get lonely if they don’t socialize with a lot of people, but we do get lonely if we don’t have intimate interactions on a regular basis."
- I have never related to a quote more in my life than I do this one right here, right now. BAM.  (viakbfoto)


Bright Star (2009) dir. Jane Campion





My spoiler-riddled theories as to why this scene wasn’t included in the film:

The basic theory: It cut in order to make the overall tone of the film less dramatic and more fitting with the comedy-action they were going for

My main theory: To make a more dramatic reveal when Thor asked Loki to drop the illusion. Those of us on tumblr were privy to the missing scene, and how powerful it looked out of context, but if you think about it, where would it fit? Before Thor came to visit Loki? Then the viewers would have already known the state he was in, and the illusion would have been pointless. Or would it have been after Thor came to make the bargain with Loki? I don’t think it would have fit there.

I was not expecting the illusion, and then Loki dropped it looking like he was incredibly broken (bloodied foot and all) and completely resigned. And then he says so calmly, “Now you see me, brother.” There’s the implication of the missing scene, and I think that was more dramatic than if the missing scene had been left in. I was more affected by it than the funeral.

And then, there’s this possibility: That “missing” scene that launched a thousand gifsets, that came one of the “making of” featurettes. It’s plausible that the scene was never intended to be in the film in the first place, and they were merely sharing a moment of Tom Hiddleston getting into the headspace of Broken!Loki, drumming up all that rage and hopelessness and grief in preparation of the coming scene.

I definitely think that the film was a bit rushed—especially during the heartrending moments. But this? This I actually think they got right.

Yes, I absolutely agree. Ooh and good point about the possibility of this being Tom getting himself into Loki’s headspace. 

Loki’s breakdown is a scene that works well in gifs and fanart, but I don’t think it would have worked so well in the movie. Not without changing the whole set up to Thor confronting Loki in the cell and losing that moment where he tells him to drop the illusion. And I think that in itself was an important moment for Thor. After two prior movies where Loki is inconstantly fooling Thor with his projections, I was really happy to see Thor see through it at last. Or perhaps it was just that he knows his brother well enough to guess he wasn’t holding up as well as he appeared to be. Either way, it was an important defining moment.

"If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them."

This country is such a fucking joke. Did you know that if we were to divide the income in this country fairly it would be about 300,000 per person. That’s annually. You could give each person in this country 100,000 and still have enough to invest in infrastructure and research. Instead we have people who don’t have water, don’t have their basic human rights fulfilled, because they don’t have enough to pay a bill. 

Capitalism is inhumane.
