Hey, got a minute?
Or not. Okay. That’s fine too.
WitchDude asked LokiOfAsgard a question:
So what was up with Kate? She said you paid her just to spend all night in some warehouse.
LokiOfAsgard replied: I found out who our mystery cape is. Which was what I’d been hoping to do, so in that regard, the mission was a complete success.
WitchDude asked LokiOfAsgard a question:
I’ve known you long enough to know how to read between your lines. What really happened?
LokiOfAsgard replied: In finding out, I may have irreparably damaged one of the few honest friendships I have. Turns out, a lot of Midgardians are Anti-Loki. Who knew?
BEEEEEEEEEEEEEES – FFA Post #204
Fics and authors have all been revealed! What did you get, nonnies? If you didn’t participate, show me your favourites!
PlusFiveToBling wrote mine omg! Now I feel like the comment I left on the fic isn’t worthy.
Nonnie, I’m sure the comment you left was just fine
I wrote for her, and she loved it! I feel validated, meme!
The Cap/Iron Man one is really, insanely good.
Which one? There are two.
The one where Cap was brought back 20 years earlier. I haven’t read the post-apocalyptic one yet.
Sassgardian wrote mine. And it was really fucking good. 🙁
He wrote something for me too. I feel gross.
Same here. D:
🙁 Nonnie. They didn’t send out a pinch hit or anything?
They really should have sent out a pinch hit for you, nonnie.
I’m writing a treat right now
That is so sweet. I’m thinking about doing the same thing.
Hi, I know this community is supposed to be anonymous, but I’m posting logged in so there’s no doubt where this comment is coming from. Myself and my co-mods saw the Daily Bugle article the same time everyone else did. It happened at an awkward time for us, but the decision we made was one that had several hours of Skype conversations behind it.
Ultimately, we decided that since there is no concrete, physical evidence that Sassgardian is who people are speculating he is, there was nothing we could do. He completed his assignment on time, and even wrote a few treats. As far as the rules for the exchange go, Sassgardian is in good standing, and banning him based on a rumour would not be fair. It’s not usually in our policy to ban members from participation for activity that happens outside of the exchange, but the moderation team have all unanimously agreed that a circumstance like this, if proven true, would be grounds for immediate removal from the exchange. But as it stands, there is no proof. Nor will we accept submissions of proof without credible, documented sources. But we will not ban on rumour and speculation. In trying to be the people Captain America knows we can be, we will not punish someone for a crime we cannot prove they committed. I know this may be difficult for some people, but we felt that if we did ban him from participation, and were later shown to be wrong in that decision, the damage to reputation as a moderating team and as a long-standing fic exchange would be forever tarnished.
It was not an easy decision to make, but this is the decision we made, and we will all stand by it. If, in the future, Sassgardian does participate in another round, we can only do our best to make sure he continues to follow the rules of the exchange. So far, he has not caused any problems, and we would appreciate if that same respect were extended for the duration of this round. There have already been several comments left on his works, which we cannot do anything about, save report them to AO3’s abuse team. We do not, and have never required anyone to leave comments on fics in this exchange, and we ask now that unless you have something to say about the fic itself, to refrain from commenting on his submissions.
Thank you all for your understanding
Cape Swap Mod Team
I see where you’re coming from with this, but he really should be banned. Can you at least remove his fics from the collection?
How about we talk about some actual Cape Swap fic? Has anyone read through all of Swiftly Beating Heart yet?
No, I’m still about halfway through. How the hell does someone write 160,000 words in two months?
It feels like I’ve gone through a terrible break up. Or at least what I think a terrible break up would feel like. I don’t even know. It’s just terrible.
i really hate you sometimes
I know, right! What is that?
Only when I have to sit outside and watch someone for hours.
No, don’t throw a rock at them. You do not want that.
You threw the damn rock, didn’t you?
Kamala, what’s going on?
Where are you?
Capes. Anon. – Your friendly neighborhood splat
I know we don’t talk about FFA here, but have you guys seen this? The Instagram link will seriously blow your mind.
I am so confused. What the fuck is even going on anymore? Someone please explain this to me.
Are we certain this isn’t shopped?
He’s posted selfies with Thor before, which is part of the reason I’ve always been inclined to believe that Loki is just a really popular (and in his case, extremely unfortunate) Asgardian name.
But how do we know none of those were shopped as well?
That is a lot of effort to put into something, even for a supervillain.
Yeah, echoing the other nonnies here. I’m pretty sure these are all legit.
I was on the fence for a while, until I found this: hxxps://vine.co/v/eLrttpE99IA3
Either he’s got the team behind Jurassic park filming his vines, or that is an honest to god dragon.
There were gryphons in a recent photoset he posted to Tumblr. I don’t think he’d have time to shop all this AND try to run the world at the same time, AND write novel-length fic, AND build flawless cosplays, AND get arrested with his friends for vandalism once a week, tbh.
I can’t believe people are buying this! This is exactly what he wants! Have you forgotten that!?
Nope, fuck him. He’s fucking vile and has no place being anywhere near decent people.
Is anyone going to comment on the fact that he was still, either way you look at it, writing literal self-insert fic about himself being awesome?
What do you mean was? For Asgardia just updated like ten minutes ago.
omg make him stop
Yeah, I was pretty strongly against the Cape Swap mods’ decision to not ban him, and now I’m just confused.
SO. This is what I’ve got so far:
Sassgardian and LokiOfAsgard are both the same person. He’s from Asgard, which means he’s probably a magic user, which might explain how he went from 12 to drinking age in six months.
Daily Bugle gets a picture of Sassgardian doing something shady in New Jersey.
Loki is known to have been killed during the Siege of Asgard. There were dozens of eyewitnesses confirming the fact.
LokiOfAsgard joins the Young Avengers. It’s still unclear what was going on, but there are rumours that he started the thing they were fighting against. Conflicting stories say it might have been Wiccan who started it. The Young Avengers have remained silent on it.
There is no evidence that Loki survived the Siege of Asgard. There is, however, evidence that Sassgardian is from Asgard/ia, and is friendly with the people there, as well as with the people of Broxton.
Sassgardian/LokiOfAsgard regularly interacts with not only members of the Young Avengers, but occasionally with other capes as well. This does not happen often, and usually just seems to be him pissing someone off and getting yelled at for being annoying.
It is incredibly unlikely that any of the above would be friendly with someone who countless times before tried to kill them. I strongly doubt even Asgardians would allow a known psychopath to play games with their children.
All this, coupled with the above post, suggests that Loki still remains dead, and Sassgardian just has an unfortunate name, which may be why he spends so much time hanging out with capes. If anything, I think he probably is trying to distance himself from the image that comes with his name by making a new one. But he should really get rid of the horns if this is what he’s trying to do.
This is all really well thought out, nonnie. And I think I agree with it? This seems like a really good round up of all the facts.
Even fucking Loki has stans. Sick
Oh my god, shut up.
♥witchdude, noththehawkguy, babbyhulk, plus_five_to_bling
lokiofasgard What do you do after banishing a ten-headed werecat back to its own realm? 3AM PIZZA OF COURSE! #latenightheroics
witchdude I was starting to think you were making her up.
lokiofasgard I have other friends. Just because you don’t doesn’t mean we all have to be lonely.
supersmrt ouch, dude. ouch
plus_five_to_bling Do we do this every week? If I’m careful, I might be able to make a habit of this.
