You are a son of the earth, the sea, the sky. Magic is the fabric of this world and you were born of that magic. You are magic itself. You cannot lose what you are.

Sorry

Hiya, sorry I haven’t been very active on tumblr the past month.
But, I’m currently working in a sleepaway camp so I have practically no free time and sleep comes fast once my head hits the pillow.

I apologise for the lack of posting, but I should be back to “normal” towards the end of the summer-ish

I will reblog this every single time

That was just too silly not to be drawn.
The disturbing thing about this is that I’m pretty sure Thranduil would actually be able to slay the beast just with his rolled magazine.

I always wondered about that penultimate scene of Marvel’s The Avengers, when the team arrives with the Tesseract to send Thor and Loki back to Asgard.
Loki is wearing a muzzle.
The film does not explain this.
We’ve now had a sequel and a season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and I think it’s time to reconsider the muzzle.
Where did it come from?
It doesn’t appear to be of Asgardian construction. The Asgardian Collar seen in the “Yes Men” episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  is a much more graceful device. 
It’s not standard police equipment anywhere in the United States, nor is it usual to muzzle prisoners of war, so it was either something S.H.I.E.L.D. kept around ,just in case, for “those people who can’t be matched”, or it was made by Tony. Since it appears crude for Tony’s standards,  I’m going with  S.H.I.E.L.D.  Also, I give Tony too much credit to cooperate in putting a muzzle on anyone - at least without a damn good reason.

Why muzzle Loki?
There’s no indication of the amount of time that passed between, “If it’s all the same to you, I’ll have that drink now,” and the scenes in Central Park. One would think that inquiring minds would have tried to prise information of various sorts from Loki in the meantime. On the helicarrier, Nick Fury was willing to use torture to do so. What compelling reason would there be to prevent Loki from speaking?
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. provided a believable explanation for the Asgardian Collar to be placed on Lorelei : her voice is the source of her power to enthrall. However, there’s no evidence that Loki uses his voice for magic.
It wasn’t because of his snark or sass, either. There are far too many other characters in The Avengers who possess the kind of snark that burns. Maria Hill is positively insubordinate, and her commanding officer didn’t even bat an eye. 
It could  have been intended as a throw-away reference to mythology - and the short-run Marvel comics series The Trials of Loki -in which Loki’s lips were sewn shut.
The only valid in-universe explanation I can think of is that it could have been a precaution to prevent Loki from trying to persuade anyone to help him escape. I think that’s a stretch, but at least it makes sense. 
Objectively, it prevents the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. from finding out about Thanos before the MCU is good and ready.
From a meta standpoint, there’s a connection between Loki being muzzled in the Avengers, and his family’s disinterest in what happened to him after he fell from the Bifrost. In The Avengers, the muzzle prevented Loki from explaining his actions. In TDW, no one wanted to hear Loki’s explanation. Odin was satisfied with what he presumed to be Loki’s motivation for attacking Midgard, while Thor and Frigga weren’t even curious. Again, the MCU doesn’t want to spoil the big reveal about Thanos, but it doesn’t make sense that the ruling family of Asgard wouldn’t make an attempt to at least find out about that scepter, maybe decide that it belongs in Odin’s Treasury with othe WMDs? But then, someone might realize that it looked to be  powered by something that looks like the Mind Gem…which seems to be missing from its place on the Infinity Gauntlet…which comes back to a number of issues that MCU writers understandibly wish to avoid at this point.

Watch: Ian Burkhart, a 23-year-old quadriplegic man, just moved his arm — with his mind

Burkhart had been unable to move his arms or legs since a diving accident four years ago damaged his spinal cord and left him paralyzed. But thanks to a new device that reroutes his brain signals, Burkhart was recently able to lift his hand using his thoughts.

The technology, called Neurobridge, takes electric signals from the brain and sends them directly to the muscles, bypassing the damaged spinal cord.
