If I could freeze time, I would spend an eternity by your side, mother.

Thor: The Dark World (liveblog) [x]
I waxed pretty poetic about this in the previous post, but I still really love these books. They’re massive books, the pages are thick and there’s detail everywhere on them. The pictures of the Aether MOVE, the dials spin and twirl, the lines along the side/between the text twist and twirl, the knots on either side spin around, and the whole book glows against the dark of the room.
The book is definitely made of paper (or paper-like material), these aren’t screens as we would have, but look like they would feel like paper and ink even in the animated parts. And it’s just a beautifully designed book!
But the other thing that caught my attention—“I know these stories, mother told them to us as children.” Aside from the earlier scene with Loki’s punishment, this is really the first time he’s even mentioned, and it’s very clear that Thor didn’t say she told them to him but to them, that she told both Thor and Loki these stories as children.
So, all those scenes of Frigga reading to her boys as they were kids, probably before bedtime, a book perched on her lap or just reciting them from memory, as she tucked them into bed? HAVE NOW BEEN CANONIZED.
But it’s also a sign that Thor still remembers Loki very well, that their childhood together is still very much there. I think it’s still an automatic reach for him—which sounds kind of obvious, but it’s just a quiet moment that gave me a lot of feelings because so much of the movie is about Thor trying to step away and yet his first thoughts still go in Loki’s direction in tiny, tiny moments like this.
Plus, you know. Frigga telling stories to kid!Thor and kid!Loki, I AM HERE FOR THAT.
Hearing the first panel in Chris Hemsworth voice? Pretty funny.
Hearing the second panel in Sir Anthony Hopkins voice? Priceless.
Great Odin’s raven!
