Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, as they say, and Mopey just has very unique and personal standards as to what kind of vision deserves the adjective “sweet”. Some people like the aesthetics of disaster movies, and Mopey feels basically the same – just without the artificiality of moviemaking coming between her and her appreciation. *shrug* (Those visions must have had high artistic appeal, anyway, since Mopey is quite discerning and rarely grants 4 out of 4 stars. She hasn’t been using the ‘stars’ system for long, though, before that she rated visions of sheer horror by giving out a lower or higher number of ‘thumbs’…but she must have lost that necklace somewhere…)
But, yeah, our heroes got away at the last possible moment, hopeless as their situation had looked prior to that. That was pretty much a given, of course, since first contact scenarios between kaijus and protagonists generally tend to be fleeting. And fortunately, I’ve made sure that Snuka is thrifty with his fingers so he’d have enough left for a little bit of deus-ex-pocketknife. Admittedly, he probably can no longer order more than two beers with a single gesture by now, but, hey, he’s too young to order beer anyway.
More on Thursday!
