"If you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life…The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you.” - The Little Prince
O K BUT what about instead of playing dead Loki ends up helping Thor defeat Malekith for whatever other seedy purpose he has previously concocted and when the dust has settled Thor appears all bruised and bloody and the air smells electric like an imminent thunderstorm and Loki can’t help but get super duper turned on by this accidental display and Thor has been sporting a mega boner all the while because there is enemy blood giving color to his not-brother’s pale cheeks and it’s been a really long time since they fought side-by-side and lo they end up making out enthusiastically in the middle of Greenwich and that’s how TDW should’ve ended.
