Working on some new drawings of Norse!Loki with a strong Captain Jack Sparrow influence (since that’s pretty much his personality in the myths lol)
I’m seriously considering making a blog dedicated to people hating on Sigyn and me tearing them a new one
We all know Odin is a shitty dad, because even if he does feel some affection towards Loki he does tend to wave him off or forget about him or treat him as not being important. He likes to make Thor’s life impossible by controlling the shit out of it (he destroyed his relationship with Jane Foster, hid the identity of his biological mother from him, trolls him in his youth to teach him humility, turns him into a girl to teach him humility, banishes him from Asgard to teach him humility, keeps him locked in Asgard so he won’t go to Midgard, etc…). Odin also banished his half-Frost Giant Son Vidar into exhile for being as big as a Frost Giant (they since made up though) As for Balder he never told him he was his dad (and they never quite dealt with the aftermath of that).
Loki is portrayed in fics as being an awesome dad but at least when it comes to the comics, he isn’t a great father either. He is a bit of a dead-beat dad and has fathered many kids (he admits to Spider-Man he has thousands of daughters scattered throughout the centuries), he tends to punish his kids harshly, and when it comes to Thor he is willing to walk over them just to get the opportunity to crush his brother… But he can also be a great dad when he wants to.
So here’s some canon examples of Loki parenting.
This is a favorite topic of mine, so here I go.
Personally I’m not a huge fan of old-school Comics!Loki, and I welcome new interpretations of the character. Comics!Loki seems to regard love and affection as a weakness, because that’s how villains roll.
(This isn’t to say he can’t love, of course—nor am I saying that comics!Loki is a bad character—he’s just not my cup of tea. Fortunately, the comics have a whole selection of Lokis to choose from.)
I think many of the interpretations of Loki as a good father are drawn from Norse mythology. Keep in mind that there’s no evidence at all—NONE—that Loki treated his children badly in the myths. Literally NONE. (If anything, it seems like he’s proud of them.) And he most definitely loved Vali and Narvi. (He went completely catatonic when Narvi was killed.)
Also keep in mind that, though his children are powerful as fuck, Myth!Loki does not drag them into his schemes. Ever. (Seriously, it never fucking happens.)
There’s also the fact that in the mythology, Loki isn’t bound by hero/villain rules. He’s a Trickster, and they can basically do whatever the fuck they want. Including, if they so choose, being loving partners and parents. (Incidentally, there’s no reason to assume that Loki treated his romantic/sexual partners badly, either. I mean, Sigyn chose to stay in a cave with him for all eternity—where did that loyalty come from? Surely it makes sense to assert that such loyalty, so strong and unswerving, comes from mutual love?)
Myth!Loki is also genderfluid and pansexual, so taking on a maternal role (as well as paternal) probably wouldn’t be out of the question for him, either. (As opposed to hypermasculine !Loki in the comics.)So I think that’s why there may be an influx of ‘good daddyLoki’ stories—the old stories are having new influence, and I for one think it’s fantastic.
