I'd like to leave a prompt at [livejournal.com profile] norsekink that would basically go something along the lines of: Loki - while exploring Midgard - discovers the travesty that is Jul i Valhal. He quickly reconciles with Thor as the brothers make a bonding experience out of punishing the people responsible for this blasphemy.

Somehow, I doubt anybody would know what I was talking about...

I wanted to write crack. I wrote this. I'm odd that way.

Wherein pretty much everybody (except Loki) are acting like idiots )

You go away for a couple of days and when you come home and check your e-mail, you find that the prompt you posted at Norsekink and more or less forgot about, the prompt asking for Loki and Supernatural's Gabriel, that prompt has been filled, and oh, how it has been filled.

Seriously. Go stare at the pretty, pretty art. If you like Gabriel and Loki, go. Now.

Which reminds me, I should really start looking around for a Norse Myth related icon...

Disclaimer: Neither SPN nor the Thor movie belongs to me - I'm just playing.
A/N: written for [livejournal.com profile] neotoma, who wanted: Movie!Loki and SPN!Loki(Gabriel) -- pissing contest. It didn't quite turn out that way, but...

Tricksters Anonymous )

So, I stumbled across yet another of those articles about how some so-called fans are bitching about the casting of Idris Elba as Heimdal, and I'm just - seriously, people. This is movie with a blond Thor, not a goat in sight, and where Loki's mother has been mysteriously and inexplicably genderswitched into the king of the jotun (which has lead me to cheerfully assume that Marvel's jotun are all hermaphrodites and Loki is going to get a surprise one of these days, but nevermind). So, when people only bitch about how Mr. Elba doesn't fit the original mythology, it's kind of telling. Just saying.

That said, I rolled my eyes as much as any girl while watching the movie - but then, most modern fiction involving Norse myth involve revisions or sheer idiotic changes - I'm still scarred from Jul i Valhal with Loki calling Hel "auntie"... And then there's the things nobody ever remember, like if you're using Snorri, you should really be casting Greek or Turkish actors, as he claimed that the Aesir where the descendants of Trojan refugees. For instance. Consequently.

I've got a challenge for you. Point me to a modern canon involving Norse myth that remembers (or at least handwaves the absence of) Thor's stone and you can have a prompt. If you can't find a such, if you can (without googling or other forms of cheating) tell me what I mean with Thor's stone, you can also have a prompt, but it must have something to do with Norse myth - a crossover, perhaps.

Any takers?

Just come home from watching Thor and I'll admit, it's definitely one of the more entertaining Marvel movies. Which is not to say that I was not guilty of a few unattractive snorts along the way due to the random butchering of Norse myth, and insufficient explanations for same. But mostly fun and laid back and I'm looking forward to watching Thor interact with the other Marvel heroes in future movies.

Mind you, I'd really like to know why they made Laufey Loki's father? Dear Marvel, what's with the genderswitch? Or am I supposed to interpret it as the jotun being a race of hermaphrodites?
