Title: But briefly.
Fandom: Marvel
Subject: kid!Loki
Notes: Made for [livejournal.com profile] waywardmixes's ninth challenge: angst. For those who aren't familiar with the character, this is one version of Loki who appeared in Journey Into Mystery and other related comics. Out of all the Lokis he's probably my favourite because he's the funniest, the most ridiculous, and also the biggest ball of angst. As in, movie!Loki is a ray of sunshine by comparison. Plus, you can legit hug kid!Loki and you'll make him better, so there's that. Thirteen tracks, even though I don't like odd numbers, but in this case I felt that it would be more appropriate than twelve. Symbolism is important. Though I've tried not to spell out any of the plot twists, the artwork for this mix includes some images from the (truly gorgeous) latest issue of JiM, so spoilers ahead. Also because I went overboard with the pretty, the post is very image heavy.








In the end, many answers ended up being "Loki".

Loki the Trickster. Loki the mad god. Loki who orchestrated the attack on Asgard. Loki who crippled Asgard's defenses and made it fall. It's also Loki who turned coat and sacrificed himself to save the world from destruction, only to be destroyed himself. But Loki has made a contract with Hela and Mephisto and so he couldn't truly die. Thor, the only one who misses his brother's company, finds the God of Mischief reincarnated in the body of a young boy and brings him home.

Loki doesn't remember anything past his childhood with Thor. Everyone hates him and marks him as a traitor, but Loki wants no part in his past self's evil schemes. Armed with sarcasm and an impressive number of bad ideas, Loki tries to atone for sins he has no memory of. The story of kid!Loki is a comedy in thirty parts. (Or a tragedy in thirty-one.)
I
Better Alone (Carolina Liar)
It won't hurt a soul,
If you just learn to breath again
You never had the nerve to begin with
You think you're better alone
II
Lying To Yourself (Example)
Until you stop lying to yourself
I'll never stop lying to you
And until I stop crying to myself
I'll never cry in front of you
III
Anyone's Ghost (The National)
You said it was not inside my heart, it was
You said it should tear a kid apart, it does
Didn't want to be your ghost
Didn't want to be anyone's ghost
IV
Demons (Imagine Dragons)
Don't want to let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don't want to hide the truth
V
When We Were Young (Take That)
And when you look at yourself tonight
Are you someone you recognise?
You can take back what you've given away
But it must be the last time
VI
Underneath (Adam Lambert)
Strip away the flesh and bone
Look beyond the lies you've known
Everybody wants to talk about a freak
No one wants to dig that deep
VII
Seven Devils (Florence + the Machine)
Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
I'll be dead before the day is done
VIII
My Medea (Vienna Teng)
For I must die for what I've done
A twist of fate, a desert sun
For I see what I destroy
I can see what I've begun
IX
Sink Or Swim (Tyrone Wells)
Pushed to the edge of my reason
Everywhere around me in treason
I don't want to do that to you
X
Rescued (Jack's Mannequin)
Oh, say you'll miss me one last time
I'll be strong, but whatever you do
Please don't get me rescued
XI
Goodbye (Greg Laswell)
When you think of me again
Know I tried, I tried
Goodbye
XII
Dead Boy's Poem (Nightwish)
Wrote for the eclipse, wrote for the virgin
Died for the beauty, the one in the garden
Created a kingdom, reached for the wisdom
Failed in becoming a god
XIII
I Gave You All (Mumford & Sons)
But you rip it from my hands
And you swear it's all gone
And you rip out all I have
Just to say that you've won

OH. MY. GOD. THIS IS FANTASTIC. Not only do I want to read Journey Into Mystery RIGHT NOW, but I'm listening to the mix and loving the art. Seriously, this is the third time I've read through it because it's just so damn awesome.
