“Zealous men are ever displaying to you the strength of their belief, while judicious men are shewing you the grounds of it.” ~ William Shenstone
A zealous man is passionate about his beliefs. Loki, passionate….*shakes head* Oh, sorry, lost myself for a moment there. It’s so difficult to keep my mind straight after writing about Loki for a month. All the glorious feels I’ve been burdened with when it comes to him.
Wait, that makes me zealous too, doesn’t it? I’m passionate in my defense of Loki as a character. I’m a Loki Zealot! *gasp* Is that a bad thing? Hell no.
I maintain my defense of Loki as a Villain and an Anti-Hero. He is both. Sometimes more one than the other. It depends on the movie, the circumstances, the moment in time. He is both.
His fervent belief in his mission, his destiny makes him a zealot, and the fact he goes through so much trouble to obtain it only solidifies this in my mind. Loki’s zealous nature has made him the villain, but it also endears us to him. A man with convictions, however misguided, is still more of a leader than a coward who wallows in defeat.
Loki is our leader, and we are his army.

I wondered what Z was going to be. Well done from A to Z.
I saw this quote and I immediately thought of you.
“The villains were always ugly in books and movies. Necessarily so, it seemed. Because if they were attractive—if their looks matched their charm and their cunning—they wouldn’t only be dangerous.
They would be irresistible.”
― Nenia Campbell, Horrorscape
Thank you so much for your support and kind words, Grey. That quote is so true, and I love it. *hugs* Now that the A-Z is over, I’m not sure what to do with myself. 🙂 Thanks again.
Yayyy, zee end! 😀 Oh Jen, we made it! Barely sane, but we made it! Your posts have just encouraged my adoration of all things Loki, much to the chagrin of my boyfriend (sorry not sorry).
Please tell me you’ll keep blogging, I would miss your face around my Reader! Plus, I need to hear all about your wonderful writing 🙂 🙂 *wafts Loki-shaped cookies*
Awww, C.E. You’re always welcome to stop by my blog or drop me a tweet. 🙂 That challenge was tough, but I’m so glad I did it. It allowed me to meet such awesome fellow fans and writers. ❤ I will do my best to keep up with the blogging, but it may only be once a week now for a little. My brain is fried. *giggles*
I will keep you posted on my writing. Keep in touch, darling. And remember, stay wicked. 😛
Just got through all your posts and commented on a few. Loved them all. Although MORE PICS! Sorry, that’s me being a little zealous. 😉
Awww…thanks, Patricia. I’m glad you enjoyed my posts. I would have gone picture overload, but I was trying to keep my fangirling to a minimum. *wink*
