Working with a chaotic deity such as Loki can often times be challenging, but often very rewarding. But here's the deal, Loki isn't one of those deities to wreck your stuff for no reason, but to teach you lessons and give you different outlooks on life. He's one of those deities that will show you the lesser side of the world and how to deal with it.
Recently, for me, Loki has been hitting me hard with some adult situations. Getting stranded in Missouri, bank account overdrawn fee, 430.00 doctor fee (Which was already taken care of). On top of that, I didn't get paid today! So Loki made it a really challenging day for me today. When I asked him why he'd do this, he told me that he's showing me how to grow up and take on the world. More challenges are soon to come from him. I was kind of a sheltered kid growing up, so this is obviously needed for me. Irritating, but needed.

Loki enjoys almost any offering, unless he says otherwise. Specifically spicy stuff. Since, he has the trickster title, he can be childish and playful at times (even very obscene and raunchy in his humor!) he enjoys simple toys, trinkets, odds and ends.
((HEAVY UPG WARNING))
In the lore, Loki was often seen as a god of trickery, chaos, and all around bad omens. But he had redeeming qualities. Such as Sleipnir, Moljnir, and Sif's golden hair. He was born to two giants, Farbauti and Laufey. His wife is Sigyn, Lady of Paitence, and his mistresses were Angrboda and Skadi. Through Angrboda, She bore Him Fenris, Jormungandr, and Hela. Through Sigyn, she gave birth to Narvi and Vali. In some UPGs, he even had a wife named Glut. Together, they had children named Ember and Ashes.
Once, Loki made his way to the Dwarves, he had the Dwarves craft beautiful golden hair for Sif, as well as Skidbladnir and Gugnir. After that, he started taunting them into thinking they they couldnt build better gifts for the gods, even as going as far as to bet his own head on it. The dwarves, angered by this, started working on three more gifts. One was a golden boar, the second was a ring that could produce multiple rings, and the third was the classic Moljnir. But during Moljnir's creation, Loki turned into a fly and bit the dwarf's eye, causing him to make the handle short. After all three were made, they journeyed back with Loki to finally win the wager and claim his head.
The gods were very pleased by the dwarve's work. But Lokie still owed his head to the dwarves. Anxious to keep his head, he made a point that they could only have his head, not his neck. As an alternative, the dwarves sowed Loki's mouth shut.
