Oh, thank the Norns. At least ten other people have made Loki vids to this song so I don’t have to ruin my life doing it myself. (It’s “Broken Crown” and was clearly about Loki.)

We need a Loki vid to this song. Or at least Loki manips with some of the lyrics.

“Castle”

Sick of all these people talking, sick of all this noise
Tired of all these cameras flashing, sick of being poised
Now my neck is open wide, begging for a fist around it
Already choking on my pride, so there’s no use crying about it

I’m headed straight for the castle
They wanna make me their queen
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean
I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut

Straight for the castle

Oh, all of these minutes passing, sick of feeling used
If you wanna break these walls down, you’re gonna get bruised
Now my neck is open wide, begging for a fist around it
Already choking on my pride, so there’s no use crying about it

I’m headed straight for the castle
They wanna make me their queen
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean
I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut

Straight for the castle

There’s no use crying about it
There’s no use crying about it
There’s no use crying about it
There’s no use crying about it

I’m headed straight for the castle
They wanna make me their queen
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean
I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut

Straight for the castle
They wanna make me their queen
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean
I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne that’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut

Straight for the castle

lokisday:

What is the honor they give me?
Denied a seat in Odin’s hall;
Forbidden fruits from Iðunn’s tree
And cast outside of Asgard’s walls.

Six or seven years ago, I heard this song purely by accident—an accident named Loki, no doubt. The details are unfaithful to the lore, but the spirit of this song… oh, damn… it renders me speechless. Sometimes, when I need to feel closer to him, I close my eyes and let the words—of loneliness, bitterness, cunning, and witchery— recapture my imagination as they did the first time I heard the song.

The original was penned by the late Mikal Hrafspa.

I love this song. 

I just noticed this website is no longer active, so here’s the archive of it. You can save the mp3. The song is ostensibly about myth Loki but there’s obvious Marvel influence.

I was born in battle’s fire
Laid beside my mother’s corpse
My toys the ravens of the field
My lullabies the screams of horse
But when that storm god you all praise
Walks the earth and shatters trees
You huddle close beside my gift
And whisper prayers beside the spit
And as the woodsmoke turns and twists
You owe your lives to sly Loki.

Odin saw me on the field
And recognized his bastard son
There he claimed me for his own
Heir to all that he had won

But when that storm god you all praise
Walks the earth and shatters trees
You huddle close beside my gift
And whisper prayers beside the spit
And as the woodsmoke turns and twists
You owe your lives to sly Loki.

I am the slyest of the gods
Fire is the gift I gave
I am swifter than the wind
And none can match the tricks I’ve played

But when that storm god you all praise
Walks the earth and shatters trees
You huddle close beside my gift
And whisper prayers beside the spit
And as the woodsmoke turns and twists
You owe your lives to sly Loki.

What is the honor they give me?
Denied a seat in Odin’s hall
Forbidden fruits from Idun’s tree
And cast outside of Asgard’s walls

But when that storm god you all praise
Walks the earth and shatters trees
You huddle close beside my gift
And whisper prayers beside the spit
And as the woodsmoke turns and twists
You owe your lives to sly Loki.

So sit beside the fires gleam
And count the wrongs that I have borne
I wait for Ragnarok and dream
Hark! Is that the battles horn?

Like My Very Own Blood (190 words) by Saucery [AO3]

Just found this in one of my playlists. It’s from the Lestat musical – I can’t remember if it was actually produced and tanked or if it never got past the planning stage. Whatever, this song is awesome – it’s Claudia telling Lestat and Louis, “Don’t blame me, it’s your fault that I want more!” (More blood.)

I was once thinking of making a Loki vid to this, pointing out to Odin that it’s his fault that Loki’s idea of success is being a king and that Loki’s idea of how to deal with problems is to kill a lot of people. I doubt I ever will, because I would have to look at TDW enough to harvest clips of Odin’s tyranny and you all know what an ordeal that would be for me. Also because the joke of that vid, like many of my pre-TDW vids, would be that Loki, much as I love him, is still a villain, and the joke isn’t funny anymore. And he really isn’t, not only because of his masochistically noble behavior in TDW, but because everybody else in Asgard turned out to be so horrible that calling him a villain is pretty much ridiculous.

Anyway, it’s a good song and y’all might chuckle over the concept of the vid that I didn’t get around to making.
