Odin:You are becoming a young man. There are some things in your past that may come to light and your mother and I haven't told you before in fear it would upset you.
Odin:At the final battle of Jotunheim, I found an infant. It was small and malnourished - a child Laufey sought not to claim for its power was in magic, not in physical strength.
Odin:I took you from that battle, son, and your mother and I have loved you ever since.
Loki:Sssso... this is why you prefer Thor.
Odin:This is why I spend so much more time with Thor, yes. He is like me in that he has a temper to be tamed and physical strength he allows to take over when that anger boils over. Your mother is talented with magic and is clever with words as you are. Me being more like Thor doesn't make me love you any less than I love him.
Loki:... Does Thor know?
Odin:He will if you wish him to.
Loki:We aren't family, then.
Odin:You are my son by love as your mother is my wife by marriage. Blood means little in the way of kin.
Loki:But I can't become king of Asgard.
Odin:... Which is another reason I spend so much time with your headstrong brother as he'll eventually have to do public speaking outside of 'thor swing hammer' and he doesn't have the gilded tongue you do.
