think back to the first thor movie. think back to when thor has come home, and loki is trying to destroy jotunheim, just as thor had wanted to in the beginning. think back to when they’re on jotunheim in the beginning and loki tries to stop thor from doing something stupid only to get a, “know your place, brother.” think back to all the shit thor has put loki through in the first movie and through the thousands and thousands of years of their childhood. think back to loki trying to make thor see sense, to stopping him from taking the crown when he wasn’t ready because he was an asshole. think back to thor coming home from three days in midgard and being completely changed, kind and thoughtful and mature. think back to loki seeing this, seeing a mortal woman do in three days what he could not do in thousands of years. and she wasn’t even trying.
how does loki feel, in that moment, when he realizes thor cared more about what a mortal thought of him than his own brother? how does loki feel when he realizes that even though he’s been bullied all his life, trying to change his brother’s ways, trying to be loyal to his brother, trying to come out of the shadows and get his brother’s acknowledgement, trying to make his brother a good person, for thousands of years, and then some mortal woman his brother doesn’t even know does it in a matter of days?
how does he feel then?
OH THE PAIN
…and let’s conveniently forget Loki was the one who stirred Thor into doing something stupid.

How do I even begin to untangle this monstrosity of a plot? My head will explode.
