Ever so egotistical….that is the Sherlock we love!
es: hook. i kissed hook.
sw: oh, why?
es: i don’t know. it’s been a while, i was feeling good.
I feel so dumb asking this, but can you tell me what color Loki's eyes actually are? In the movies they look blue to me, but a lot of authors' stories portray Loki's eyes as being green, and I was wondering which they actually are? Sorry again to bother you with this, it was just really gnawing away at me :)
No need to feel dumb! I had the same questions when I was a newbie to the fandom, myself.
As far as I can tell, Loki having green eyes is a fanon thing. Probably born from the promotional posters for the first Thor film (where they heavily doctored Tom Hiddleston’s eyes):
There is a prevailing theory that Tom wore green contacts during the first film, however I have yet to find anything that confirms it. I’ve seen the film a bazillion times, and I see nothing but Tom’s natural eye color.
Granted, there are times when Loki’s eyes look almost kinda sorta greenish (particularly in the first film), but that’s lighting. Tom has some green and grey in his eye color—they aren’t a pure blue like Chris Hemsworth’s eyes—which is why his eyes seem to change color at times. Sometimes bright blue (like in the Avengers in certain scenes), sometimes grey-ish nearly green.
I hope that answers your questions!
sifsdottir replied to your post “So did tumblr have another update? Because suddenly all the gifs and…”
It’s so irritating that you can’t choose how to deal with that. I’m all for slimming when you’re on a phone or a tablet, but when I’m on high-speed I want to have the option to show pictures, gif sets and other things without clicking.
Exactly. Why not give us the option? Because I pretty much only browse Tumblr on my laptop with my high speed internet. I don’t want to have to click on the images on every post in order to see them.
I don’t even mind if this is the default setting. But it’s the only setting now and I’m just…
Everything is dark
It’s more than you can take
But you catch a glimpse of sun light
Shining, shining down on your face
Oh your face
Oh, you’re in my veins
And I cannot get you out
Oh, you’re all I taste
At night inside of my mouth
Oh, you run away
‘Cause I am not what you found
Oh, you’re in my veins
And I cannot get you out

I took a sip from a devil’s cup
It’s taking over me
Slowly and calmly
remove your attention away from the neck
There’s an Adam’s apple
and it’s moving
Don’t look at it
Come down here and read this text instead
Follow my voice
Yes, down here, keep reading
Keep scrolling down
Scroll your way out of this
You can do this
It’s going away
Everything is going to be alright
I’m still thinking about it.
Am I the only one who read this in Tom’s voice?
I’ve never been more attracted to a neck until now.
Had to scroll back up….couldn’t stop myself… now I’m stuck :)
It took me five times to read this completely, I kept having scroll back up and look and the perfection.
Just wanted to dedicate a gif set to the amazing Luke Windsor and point out the poor mans constant look of exasperation on his face as he tries to get Hiddles to move from place to place…
Luke: ‘Tom…stop signing autographs now, your going to miss the premier, ….no Tom stop dancing….no I will not sing Bare Necessity’s with you,…no stop punching the air and come inside. No I don’t want to hear you Owen Wilson impression…I’m getting angry now. NO stop apologising to me….and stop apologising for apologising. No Tom stop apologising to your fans because you have to go inside I’m sure they understand. No I do not have time to talk about Loki’s inner demons or how Shakespeare, UNICEF and you are going to try and save the world…..yes Tom I love poetry to but we really need to go’
Luke your a champion :)
I love the one where he jogs over like Tom got away from him for a minute and he just managed to hunt him down
Whelp, took long enough for me to stalk (erm I mean FOLLOW) you and read your fantastic fics. Masquerade and Unmasked are awesome (actually I hope Emilia elopes with Benedict because Tom is being such a selfish asshole); however, I feel like the lone one in here asking for MOAR! Something Wicked. You said to ask anything so I'm asking Masquerade!Tom: "Why in the bloody hell are you such a dickhead to Emilia? This is power-harassment, you power-tripping ass!"
From Losille: Thank you for the comment, first of all. Something Wicked is just sitting in a folder on my desktop, the next chapter half finished. That muse is very fickle. I think it’s because I am dealing with Greek gods. They’re totally commanding that one. I will eventually get to it, just not at the moment. :D
From Masquerade!Tom: Unfortunately, I started giving too much of myself to everyone else without asking for anything in return. It ran me utterly ragged. You sort of get to a point where you don’t have anything else to give, you know? Then you get resentful, and you put the happy face on and do things just to get through the day the best way you know how. You continue wearing the mask that everyone wants you to wear, but you slowly lose touch with yourself and you don’t know who you are any more. I let celebrity control me.
Emilia, for some reason that I don’t yet understand, gives back to me some of the power I lost. I refused to believe I couldn’t have her when she pushed back at the beginning. The illicit chase made me feel alive again. And with it technically being a clandestine liaison, no press or girlfriend or PR exec needed to know about it. She is the one thing I can call my own. She is mine. Perhaps that translates to me being a “dickhead,” but I didn’t want to risk her slipping away. She makes me feel like a person—like a man—again. Not some puppet putting on a show for everyone.
Bloody hell, Tom. I can’t even with this.
