#this kind of pisses me off #that clint thinks he deserves first dibs at loki #like no clint #you dont #sure he took over your mind and made you do horrible things #i get it #you have all reason to want to get at loki #but loki is thors brother #they have been through hell and back together #loki has literally broken thors heart #he has tried to kill thor #he has an actual personal vendetta with loki #if anyone deserves to go and take care of loki at this point #it is deifnitely thor (via)
YES! I always wanted to kinda smack Clint about this. Like dude, really? You REALLY think you deserve to jump the line ahead of Loki’s brother? GRR…
Um, wait, what? Are we really getting mad at Clint for this guys? Really?
Because like, can we just address here that Clint doesn’t know Thor for shit? Clint knows what little of Thor and Loki’s story he witnessed in New Mexico and that’s about it.
All Clint really knows right now is that he just spent that last several days under the total control and manipulation of an alien psychopath - a man who forced him to murder an unknown number of people against his will.
While all the other Avengers were adjusting to and learning about each other, Clint was deep in Loki’s clutches, completely disconnected. And In this moment, Clint Barton has only been out from under Loki’s influence for a matter of hours. Excuse him if he doesn’t give two-shits about Thor’s feelings right now.
Just days ago, Loki hijacked Clint’s body and mind for his own personal use. He violated Clint in a way we can’t even fathom. He “took his brain and played; pulled [him] out, stuffed something else in”
Just hours ago, Clint was almost unwillingly responsible for dropping the entire helicarrier full of his friends and co-workers out of the sky.
Just hours ago, Loki threatened to make Clint kill Natasha. “Slowly. Intimately. In every way he knows [she] fears.”
Just hours ago, he almost did murder her - and Loki would have made him leave her in a puddle blood on the floor if he had.
So no. This response is completely and totally justified, thank you very much. Clint doesn’t know Thor, and he had no reason to care about Thor’s motivations in this instance. Clint is an assassin, and he wants his revenge. More than that, Clint wants justice - some small act to try and make up for all the blood Loki made him spill. Loki took away his agency, his freedom, his mind, and used him like a tool. Clint is a victim here. The horror of what happened to him - about what Loki did to him - absolutely cannot be understated.
I have my own affection for Loki, and my heart absolutely aches for Thor, and obviously I believe that Thor has his right to settle things with Loki. But in the end, Thor’s motivation is one of love for his estranged brother, and a need to bring him home.The difference is that Thor has been heartbroken by Loki
But Clint has been completely wrecked by him.
So don’t tell me Clint Barton doesn’t ‘deserve’ to settle things with his personal tormentor.
