Loki did not do this. He swears on his immortal life. (No, you didn’t just hear him snicker!)
In this case, Loki is putting forth a gnome to be a scapegoat:
Personally, I don’t think it was the gnome, not this time. Even with as creepy as he is:
Watch out, he’ll steal your soul!
I really do think this is a case of Loki being dramatic. Would someone please go get this god some coffee so we can calm him down?
I swear, the gnomes are not behind this one. We might have some issues with some fairies and such, but not gnomes. This time.
But I suspect the gnomes are coming.
Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
