Welp i said what i was going to do and so behold! Giraffes! Plesiosaurs! Giant Sea Turtles! AND MOST IMPORTANTLY AFAT PUG!!!! (to apologise for the giant arachnid. Have fun slaying that thing.)
Zaratan, (Sea Turtles/Archelon)
The Nope, (Whip Scorpion)
There will be more (I know @shoddymoddy and @niklisson both want cat grimm). Honestly, I’d end up doing an entire post on prehistoric and deep sea grimm because that map of Remnant has a lot of water and many islands so naturally there would be grimm to reflect the animals in those environments.
Summary: Years after letting the fish whole stole his heart go, Stan Pines finds himself once more sailing the open seas, this time with his twin brother Ford in search of the paranormal. Childhood dreams finally achieved, and yet there’s still only one anomaly out in those waters that Stan wishes he could catch…
Not for the first time over the
course of the past few months spent at sea on board the newly christened Stan Of
War II, Stanley Pines found himself staring out at the waves while nursing a
cigar, wondering what in hell had possessed him to let his brother convince him
that this trip would be a good idea. Here he was finally on the worldly
adventures he’d always dreamed of having since Ford and him were freckled boys
on the New Jersey coast, and yet despite how happy he was, his moods were often
as turbulent and dark as the waters they sailed. He didn’t discuss it with his
brother, though he was sure Ford knew what was plaguing him. After all these
years, Stan had foolishly thought that maybe he could finally stop caring that
his heart still roamed somewhere in that briny depth without him. He’d been
(sorry it took forever, but i’ve finally figured out what im doing thanks to everyones help with the livestreams. not alot happens, but its the lead up to something important and i needed it to happen so sorry if it disappoints!)
I’m quite curious to see how Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s character is handled in Godzilla. He puts a face to the nameless military grunts we’re accustomed to seeing giant monsters slaughter by the thousands, and he looks to have quite the personal stake in the action as well. (Recall Strathairn’s line in one of the viral videos: “I know many of you still have family and loved ones in the city.”)
And he’s helpless, too. No flying battleships or giant robots here, and that gun of his might as well shoot Nerf darts for all the good it’s going to do against behemoths that eat Tomahawk missiles for breakfast. Whatever secret missions lie ahead of him, they’re going to be absolutely terrifying and drive home the sense of hugeness that this movie seems to be emphasizing.
To quote a review of Godzilla ‘98, lamenting that movie’s wasted potential: What is it like to confront a godlike being?
(And if he turns out to be just another generic action movie protagonist - hey, at least he’s cute.)
You tend to really forget that Aradia does not really care about anyone but Sollux though
Wrong. Aradia does care about her friends, and she always did, even while dead. Let me show you some examples.
Here, you see the trolls on some platform about to explode. They, including Aradia (who was a robot at the time), were surrounded by hundreds of other Aradias that the original brought from doomed future timelines. She had her duplicates fight off Jack while she helped the other trolls (including herself) escape to buy them all time, as seen here. She could have left them there and escaped herself, but she cared enough to bring her friends with her, sacrificing her other clones to fight off Jack.
Here, you see a giant monster that the trolls had to fight on their mission to defeat the Black King. As you can see, there are lots of Aradias here to help fight. And here, you see her working with Sollux to help fight off the giant monster thing. If she didn’t care about her friends, she would not have even bothered.
In this pesterlog with Tavros, which was while Aradia was alive before her death, she clearly offered to help Tavros whenever he needed help.
Here, Aradia, as a god tier, visits Dave to teach him stuff about time and guides him through that kind of stuff.
And here, she is explaining dream bubbles to her friends and teaching them stuff as well.
Here, Aradia states that she has to get to work on some stuff and she seems pretty happy when she assured Kanaya that they could all still meet in dream bubbles. Here, she straight-up offers to help get their meteor to the Green Sun and hold off Jack to the best of her ability. And here you see her and Sollux doing the thing with the meteor.
And here, she clearly states that SHE LOVES ALL HER FRIENDS.
So before anybody assumes that Aradia does not give a shit about anybody besides Sollux, GO BACK AND READ ABOUT WHAT SHE DOES TO HELP. SHE HAS HELPED HER FRIENDS ALONG THEIR JOURNEY, AND HAS PROTECTED THEM. ARADIA CARES.
