#dean winchester is a geek #and #dean winchester is a genius #and I mourn sometimes for young dean #the one who started school late#who switched schools so much that he fell behind #the one whose dad never helped him in school #or encouraged him to have interest in academics #or in science #who probably looked at the EMF meter and said #’well I guess that’ll save money on buying one’ #the dad who spent Dean’s college fund on ammunition#and teachers probably looked at his school record #all the transfers #all the school fights from protecting Sammy and over bullies and girls and that time there was a monster at school #and judged him without even looking further #and maybe had him in remedial classes #and so he stopped trying #stopped thinking he had any right to be smart #he didn’t have time anyway #not with helping Sammy with his homework #and practicing weapons #and hunting #so somewhere along the line he just stopped trying #stopped caring #and he never had a teacher who noticed #never had one that challenged him on his bullshit #told him what he was capable of #and to this day Dean thinks he’s a grunt #thinks Sammy is the smart one
Then Sam completely ignores him, as if anyone could have done the EMF and takes Dean’s smile off his face. And only reinforces Dean thought, that he is a grunt.
Heat Exhaustion Symptoms
- Muscle cramps
- Pale skin
- Profuse sweating
- Sunken, dark eyes from dehydration
Do I need to remind you what he looked like during this entire scene?
He’s sweaty, his blood circulation isn’t working well due to vasoconstriction (namely, look at how pale his lips are,) and he’s got dark, sunken in eyes. Now we’ve got a point in which he trips and almost falls for some inexplicable reason. Well, let me ask you this.
How do you torture a frost giant?
Whedon wouldn’t just put in clips like this for no reason. He’s trying to show us something. The Loki we see here in this scene is not a healthy Loki, it’s a Loki who is weak and pale and probably focused on just staying conscious—a Loki who has probably been tortured by Thanos into submission and then sent out to do his dirty work for him, that way Thanos will never get the blame. Loki is just the puppet in the grand master scheme of things. Thanos is using him.
The Loki we see in Thor is radically different from the Loki we see in The Avengers. Sure, post-Thor, Loki is emotionally unstable, and maybe a little nuts, but he wasn’t a murderer. The only reason he went after Jotunheim is because he was having identity issues. Murder wasn’t something that was normal in his repertoire, yet we see him doing it frequently in The Avengers. The Loki we see at the end of Thor doesn’t want to live, let alone take over an entire realm that he had no interest in before. Something drastic must have happened between the two movies to have made Loki have such a huge character change.
It’s said that Thanos caught/rescued Loki after he fell from the Bifrost. Well, what did he do after that? Thanos is known for having telepathic powers, and since he had to have caught Loki knowing who he was and how strong he was, he likely broke into Loki’s mind to find out all of his fears and weaknesses. And once he found out all of Loki’s darkest secrets, it was easy to break him. He and the Chitauri took the Loki we saw in Thor and tortured and corrupted him until he was warped into their own personal demigod, ready to do their bidding. Why do you think Loki spouts off all these quotes about how “Freedom is life’s great lie,” and “In the end, you will always kneel”? He’s projecting.
So, when he trips? That’s the aftershocks of torture. That’s a Loki, weakened and struggling to stay upright, pushing forward through the pain because, otherwise?
“You will long for something as sweet as pain.”
He has to keep going because the alternative isn’t a question.
NEVER STOP REBLOGGING LOKISCIENCE
How do you know that much about my past, you foolish creature? WHO are you?
And no one. No one. Will ever be able to convince me that the marks on his head in this gif;
were not scorch/burn marks. Especially weighing the fact this segment was directed by Joss Whedon.
I want to take a dollar bill and write “are you Misha Collins” on it and maybe one day it’ll end up in his hands and he’d be the one mind fucked for once
the journey has begun…
DOING THIS ON EVERY DOLLAR I COME ACROSS
