sorry about my stupid English…ㅠㅠ
Don’t worry Fandral! Loki is my little brother! He won’t hurt me.
I’ll bring him back for his adulthood ceremony in no time!
Frozen, Thorki AU for plinys! Heheheh ;]
thor and loki literally have the worst most toxic self-damaging relationship yet i’ve been shipping them since before i understood that and they’re the only ship i’ve ever been attracted to out of all the shows and movies and fandoms i’ve ever seen it’s like nothing can make me quit these two no matter how awful things get
I will forever stand by the assertion that Thor has never been willfully or knowingly unkind - or even dismissive - toward his brother. Thor just doesn’t have that kind of ill-will in him - especially for Loki, someone he clearly adores, even at their worst moments.
The fact is that Thor is the kind of good, warm, deeply loving person who cannot help but be instantly popular. People are drawn to him naturally - they want to bask in that warmth, in the glow that seems to surround him. Simply put, people want to be around Thor because he’s great to be around, and Thor absolutely thrives in the company of others. Boisterous and joyous and extroverted, Thor flourishes when he’s surroured by both old friends and those who might become his friends.
None of this lessens just how very deep his love for Loki is. To him, Loki is more than a friend, and as an onlooker, it’s easy to see that. Perhaps, if Loki was a different person, it would be easy for him to see it too. But Loki’s fragile sense of self-worth, his lack of concrete identity, stops him from recognizing his value to Thor as we do. To Loki, every friendship Thor cultivates outside of his own, is a threat and a slap in the face. Another opportunity for Thor to find someone he loves more than Loki and thus separate from Loki further.
Loki, so very different from his brother (never as social), doesn’t need anyone other than Thor, so why should Thor need anyone other than Loki?
And none of this is to say that Thor never took Loki for granted. I’m certain he did, in the way we all of have of assuming constants in our lives will always be there. Of forgetting to say what’s in our hearts because certainly they must know how important they are to us. Nor is it too say that Thor never overshadowed his brother. Their very personalities made it so, so easy for Loki to be overshadowed by Thor’s glow, at the same time that he, too, basked in it. And Thor’s penchant for showing off (even it was often done in the interest of drawing Loki’s attention above all) must have almost invited a comparison between the two brothers - one that rarely worked out in Loki’s favor.
But what might have been fixed had Loki voiced his hurt was instead allowed to fester - again because Loki had not the self-assurance to admit Thor’s ability to hurt him. Instead, Loki dwelled on those times Thor unconsciously overlooked his feelings until he began to question the reality of Thor’s love for him - a question which, given the state of Loki’s self-worth and identity in the first place, didn’t take much for Loki to ask at all.
tldr: Thor is human (though not really) and thus totally capable of screwing up regarding his brother, but none of that ever, EVER means he doesn’t love Loki with all of his heart.

I feel bad for being so incredibly unproductive lately, but I’m still in a slump so I just went over a messy old doodle…. I didn’t know where this lump was going at the time, so I left for a while… but I guess now I’m adding this to my growing collection of jotun witch king loki AU ꒪່౪̮꒪່
