Pop Culture Q&A with Loki

Prepare yourselves. Today’s feature guest for Pop Culture Q&A is…how shall I put this nicely?

Different. Unique. Tricky and scheming.

Pop Culture Q&AThus far, I’ve only interviewed hero and good-guy types. It’s time for a change of pace, and who better to provide it than the master of deception, the king of conniving?

Loki.

Pop Culture Q&A with Loki

Me: Thank you for being here, Loki, and agreeing to this. I honestly wasn’t sure you’d come.

Loki: But of course. Why would I not?

Me: Oh, no reason. No reason at all. *eyes Loki with suspicion* Can I ask a question before we get started?

Loki: I thought that was the point in this entire process.

Me: Is this the real you or that strange mirage-double thing you do?

Loki: I can assure you, I am here. In the flesh.

Me (thinks better of poking him to be sure): Okay then. Want anything to eat or drink before the interrogation begins? *winks*

Loki (settling back in his chair): Thank you, but no.

Me: By the way, totally kidding about the interrogation. This is just a fun exercise to see your take on pop culture. Nothing more.

Loki: You seem worried, uncertain. Have I done something to disturb you?

Me: I’m gonna pass on answering that and get down to business. Worst pop artist of all time?

Loki: Undoubtedly Taylor Swift. I loathe everything about her. A mewling muddle of humanity.

Me: Thank you for being candid. Now I’m never going to escape that mental image. Anyway, moving on, best pop artist of all time?

Loki: Adele. Her style, her charisma, her voice. Unmatched across the Nine Realms.

Me: If you say so, I’m not gonna question it. Next up: which fantasy world would you rather visit—Narnia or Middle-earth?

Loki: Middle-earth. I know how to deal with elves and dwarves would present no problems. I imagine I’d enjoy getting under Saruman’s skin and casting the blame on Gandalf.

Me (nodding): That would be…interesting. Returning to music for a moment, what would you say the theme song of your life is?

Loki: On principle, I detest boy bands. Everything about them and everything they stand for. However, in this instance, I’ll say that Illusion by One Direction has always held a special place in my heart.

Me: Given what I know about you, I can totally see that. Who’s your favorite character from a movie?

Loki: Severus Snape. More to him than meets the eye, and I like that in people. It makes life more delicious, more unpredictable.

Me: No kidding. Now, you can’t use the same answer, but who’s your favorite character from a book?

Loki: James Moriarty, based on the same principles.

Me: Makes sense. Say you can take three Hollywood stars out for dinner. Who do you choose and why?

Loki: I’ve always admired Robert Downey Jr. What goes on in that mind of his, I wonder? My second choice is Tom Hanks. The man is a legend, a nugget of gold in a muddy river bed. Finally, I would include Jennifer Lawrence. A social event isn’t the same without a female influence, and she would have many interesting things to say, I’m sure.

Me: That’s quite the list. I can only imagine the conversations. Come to think of it, I don’t want to do anything more than imagine. If you could pilot one famous sci-fi ship, which would you pick?

Loki: The Deathstar. To wield such power, to stand at the helm of such an enormous, influential spacecraft—nothing could compare.

Me: Let’s just say I’m glad that was nothing more than a theoretical question. Moving to a lighter subject, what movie would you want to forget so you could watch it for the “first time” again?

Loki: Inception. It was a breathtaking film.

Me: Yes. Totally agree with that. Easily one of my favorite movies. Rolling along, you can have any superpower in the world. What do you choose?

Loki: Telepathy. I can only begin to number the potential uses and possibilities.

Me: No offense, but that’s creepy. Like, seriously. And speaking of creepy, let’s go that route for a few questions. Creepiest setting you’ve encountered in books, movies, TV shows, whatever.

Loki: The first Jurassic Park movie, when it’s a dark and stormy night, and the dinosaurs begin to reveal their—how shall I put this?—predatory nature.

Me: Yep. That was terrifying. Who’s one character that sends shivers up your spine.

Loki: In all honesty, none come immediately to mind. Disgust, annoyance, hatred, yes. But fear? Fictional characters rarely possess such power to evoke that response.

Me: Gotcha. Can’t say I didn’t try.

Loki: I could.

Me: Well, I suppose. But that’s unbecoming of one of Odin’s sons.

Loki (in a brisk tone): Let us continue the questions.

Me: Yes, of course. Don’t need to get sidetracked at the end. In your opinion, who’s the greatest writer of all time?

Loki: Isaac Asimov. His creative genius and insight are unparalleled in fiction.

Me: I’ve never read Asimov, but I think I need to. *nods* Would you rather read a book, watch a movie, or attend a concert?

Loki: Concert. I find many books tedious and movies predictable.

Me: Fair enough, though I happen to think otherwise. For the final question, let’s go crazy. Whose Twitter account would you stalk?

Loki: Chris Hemsworth.

Me: Great answer, and unsurprising, honestly. I feel like you two could connect really well. *sly grin* Anyway, thanks for coming, Loki. And for, um, behaving?

Loki: Behaving? I think you’re mistaken… *flickers and vanishes like a mirage*

What pop culture question would you ask Loki? I’d love to hear your thoughts here or on social media.
